I played the PC game Worms years ago. Which of the many current sequels (if any) has that community moved to?

I played Worms, the whimsical 2D artillery game, back before 2005 or so. The games I played were Worms 2, Worms Armageddon, and Worms World Party, which the franchise's unofficial wiki identify as "second generation."
I was never very good, having not jumped the massive skill divide between the experienced, mostly-European "ropers" and the unwashed multiplayer rabble, but the community was well-populated, fairly friendly, and it was always easy to find a game full of people.
Okay, so a ton of Worms games have come out since then-- some 3D, some not, for a variety of platforms. I've been having fun on the Facebook version, but I'd like to play against better opponents. Where are they? Is Worms Armageddon still the place for "serious" players, or is one of the current ones the most active? Is there even still such a place?
