Zep pulled it offline due to it having a memory leak afaik, but he never got around to fixing it. It was also pretty unpolished, with major imbalances with reinforcements and glitchy maps. Still the most fun I've had playing this game though! I hope GW will sometime see a return.

Short update on the current progress:

We have put some work into the java server and the java client. GW can now tell the java server to open a game for players and on the player's computers the game actually opens like a ladder game. Unfortunately no ACUs spawn, so there is still some work left we did not identify yet. However, the fact that we can open the acual game is already a huge achievement.
