WON (which stands for World Opponent Network) was the old "Master Server" of Half-Life to join servers which no longer exists for Half-Life, yet still exists for some games not related to Half-Life. Steam is the new software for Half-Life and It's games, plus Steam is also the new Master Server. In other words, you need Steam in order to play the Half-Life games, and the modifications such as Earth's Special Forces.

WON is the old network that came before Steam. It was used for Half-Life and all mods. But Steam was shut down long ago, and replaced with Steam.

You can no longer use WON to play online.

There is however a WON2, but it's incredibly unstable and buggy, and I believe it only works for LAN games.

Theoretically, ESF will work with WON2 online, as it works with CS 1.5 and Half-Life. It is much buggier than WON, though, and crashes often. But I'm not going to tell you where to get it, since that would be, as Pain states: "giving information on how to bypass Steam." And for that I can get a warning, and possibly a ban. BTW, asking how to play with WON on these forums won't get you an answer, though it is possible, but these forums don't support it. The answer you will get is "Use Steam." So don't even try it.

I doubt there are any Earth's Special Forces servers on WON2.

There aren't any. As MC said, it is very buggy and unstable, it crashes often, and it basically screws up Half-Life. There are loads of servers with CS 1.5, and Half-Life. But besides that, there are no servers.
