Changes in the VtES Internet Landscape

With the new White Wolf website going live on February 10th, 2011, the phase of extensive changes for the VtES internet landscape of the past months comes to an preliminary end (I presume).
  • On September 10th, 2010 White Wolf announces that the production of VtES will cease after the contract with Wizards of the Coast regarding the VtES has expired. The renegotiation of said contract proves to be unsuccessful.

  • White Wolf announces on November 9th, 2010 that they will rebuild their website from scratch. Since VtES no longer in production, it is doubtful that White Wolf will promote and host information on VtES on their new website. In addition to this, the updates and support of the existing website have been infrequent and inadequate for prolonged period of time. In this situation the VtES players organization, VEKN, steps up and decides to build its own web-presence as main site for VtES on the internet.

  • In December 2010 the new official VEKN website is going live. The website hosts the VtES rules, cardlists, and a discussion forum (and hopefully someday the VEKN rankings).

  • On December 29th, 2010 LSJ announces, that he will no longer be reading the VtES Usenet Newsgroup (, but instead will answer (rules) question regarding VtES on the Board Game Geek website.
