The Wargame Wiki Database, or the Wargame Wiki, is an unofficial community gaming encyclopedia operated by Wikia, Inc. The Wargame Wiki aims to be one of the most comprehensive resources for Eugen Systems' Wargame series, and is currently maintaining over 1,084 articles along with 18,100 edits combined.
The Wargame: European Escalation Wiki was founded by R.U.S.E. Wiki administrator GhOsterider444 on July 25, 2011.
During this period, the wiki has had some minor changes with only several contributing users. This acts as somewhat the "Precambrian" era of the wiki.
From July to November, the number of articles on the Wargame Wiki has nearly been doubled, from 26 pages to 44 pages.

On January 16, a PM was sent on the official forums by Freki, a Focus Home Interactive employee, to Privatejfx141. Freki asked the current admin if he would like to discuss about a potential official wiki with the upcoming Wargame: AirLand Battle.

What about the Wargame Community Wiki?
NOTE: The Wargame Community Wiki is currently shut down, thus the link below no longer works.
The difference between this wiki and the independent Wargame Community Wiki is that this wiki aims for lore and in general aspects of Wargame: European Escalation while the independent wiki aims for information about mostly tactics and strategy in the game (for example: guides for new players). There is no rivalry between this wiki and the independent wiki as both wikis have their own different editing styles. Copying information from the independent wiki is not encouraged and any existing copied information should be paraphrased.
