Should the CWN Return?

The Clan World Network (CWN) was a special place for the gaming community from 1998 to 2007. During that time, hundreds of thousands of gamers and teams competed in our leagues, ladders, tournaments, and special events. I am looking to bring back the CWN with all its glory. I have been asked many times what would it take to bring back the sites. I am currently in the process of looking into the reformation of the network and all the websites. Please understand this is a huge opportunity and undertaking to manage as the game industry has changed. As I ponder the future with the CWN, please keep in touch on our Clan Ladder Discussion Facebook Group Page as I look at all our options for finding capital in the future.
