    There will be a firewall maintenance on Tuesday (August 29th) between 4am – 7am UTC.



    Expected impact:2 Short interruptions of the player connections while we failover to the primary firewall and back.
    In case of technical difficulties, the maintenance period can last longer.

    Help William to get back on land again!



    During his weekend off William decided not to take the train, but to go sailing.
    Unfortunately, sailing is not one of his best skills and he suffered shipwreckage. Now he is on a deserted island and has only 2 wooden planks at his disposal. But those 2 planks are too short to reach the other side and he does not want to go over swimming again, because he is too tired.


    Do you know how to place the 2 planks in order to help William escape?
