Users of Mozilla Firefox may see an error message about an untrusted SSL certificate when trying to log into PBW2. This is caused by Firefox no longer trusting Startcom, the certificate authority used by the site.

Is your game running slowly because you can't get around to processing turns while sleeping and working?
If so, autohosting may be for you!

We have just deleted almost 2000 spambot accounts. Only accounts older than 60 days have been deleted. We will be going through newer accounts more closely, to make sure we don't delete newly registered users that just haven't gotten started yet.
