Shortlinks are short, easy to remember redirect links that we’ve created for the most useful pages of the site. You can memorize a few and use them to give quick advice to players who are having problems.
For example, if someone needs help fixing hosting or installing the ddraw fix you can direct them to en.war2.ru/hosting or en.war2.ru/ddraw rather than having to remember the full URL or telling them it’s “somewhere on the website”.
