Sands Of War 2 Beta 1.1
Our download system still has some minor problems with certain mirrors, but our webmaster is working hard on making it work with all of the links. In case you got the bugged installer then you can follow this great thread by Scott:
Bug Fix. It will tell you how to easily fix it.

Release Newspost
After some months of development we are now releasing the next beta of Sands of War 2 as planned. Among the best new features in this release is a new map called SoW2_Abandoned, which you could see in our last newspost. This new map is of a very nice quality and all of the existing maps have also been improved. The focus of this release has been polishing and bug fixes. Our first public beta was released quite early in the development, so it logically contained a number of bugs. With this new release we have fixed a lot of those.

Mirrors and Servers
We got enough mirror sites now, but you are still welcome to contact Zacker or Necsus on the forum with further mirrors. The Deadclan already has a beta 1.1 server up. IP is 67.19.81.77:27015 in case you can't find it. We would like to encourage people to open more.

Could I just ask how the hell you shipped a beta where players are completely invisible?
