Warcraft II is an older game and can have compatibility issues with newer computers (don't worry, they're easy to fix and well worth the few extra minutes it takes!) We STRONGLY recommend all new players go through our quick "Getting Started" checklist to fix these common problems and learn basic game mechanics before playing on the server -- it will make it MUCH easier to start playing quality games asap!
The Last Warcraft II Server in the World
War2.ru is dedicated to the classic RTS Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness. Our free online server has been operating for over 10 years and works just like Battle.net.
