      New Community Volunteer Opportunity   04/29/2017

      With the looming Steam release, we are anticipating many new players to the game. This is great for all of us, and it's important that we retain as many as we can. With that in mind, we'd like to enlist players to help with the inevitable questions asked in the forums. Ideally, gameplay questions are asked and answered in-game, but it's not always easy or convenient to answer questions while playing. A Gameplay Support Forum would be a good place for those who want to help. We are now accepting volunteers for the Rat Patrol, who will provide correct and consistent info to new players in the Forums. The more new players we retain, the better it is for the game and the biggest hurdle in player retention is grasping the complexities of this game. If you are interested, send me a PM.

      Squad Leaders Contact GVONPAUL OR Dodger for Squad Forums   05/18/2017

      Soldiers!

      We are seeking Squad Leaders to volunteer their squads to help us test the upcoming Squad Forums system. This system will integrate squads who wish to participate into a self-sustained "forum within a forum." You will be able to add members to your squad, assign permissions, and create forums/calendar events on your own. The idea behind this system is part of our commitment to support squads as a integral part of our community. This service will be offered free of charge to all squads of World War II Online upon launch. Our goal is to offer all of the services a squad off-site forum can offer but free of charge and tied in to our existing forum service. So what do you need tested? We need willing volunteers to test the whole system - make forums, post threads, assign permissions, etc. The idea is to have several squads giving it a test run to point out any flaws before we launch it publicly. What are the requirements? We are ideally looking for medium to large squads - Ideally ten people or so plus, but smaller squads feel free to apply - and a willingness to use our platform. It's important to note (as of now - these may be included at a later date) we are unable to convert posts from a private forum if your squad previously used one, and you (or your XO's and recruiters) will need to assign individual members permissions. It is entirely possible that in the future this system will be automatically linked to the game's squad roster, but as of now developer priorities are elsewhere (1.37 and steam, w00t!) How do I sign up? PM me ( @Dodger ) on the forums, or email me at dodger@playnet.com - Please indicate your squad name and how many members you have. I will get back to you with more instructions.

    • A stop gap measure of a player exploit , where a player by going prone and standing up would result in the 3rd person infantry to jerk and almost instantly appear prone and appear standing again, this was abused especially when clearing cps. You can still do thought I never use it but the player can only do this once or twice now for multiple key presses...   Unfortunetly this results in what you are describing which sucks and for me is to sensitive and takes way too much time to allow you to go back to prone or stand.
    • As been said it's a lack of precision on the information that is given to you when the other player shoots at you, not sure if it has to do with 32bit and the lack of precision due to a big world or the way information is given to you, I think a lot of the damage ballistic are done locally on your pc what is then send to the server must be a simplified data that might not be enough for you to generate the precise location of hit.   Btw this was never fixed if it was improved I never noticed at least where it matter long range combat.
    • As an unaffiliated lone wolf, why would I join a squad?  (In response to swelling ranks) As a returning player who was in both larger and smaller squads back in the day, honestly my best experiences were with the more focussed smaller squads.  Those who worked an area of the map on any given night.  "Tactics" for the bigger groups typically came down to zerg rushes. Someone mentioned a potential list of squads noting their style of play.  As an unaffiliated player I would use that tool.  Due to past experiences, Im no longer willing to join squads that want to dictate my play style.  I get enough of that from players in squads already without joining them.  If I could find those of like mind I might be willing to join them and enjoy the benefits vs the abuse. Moving forward with Steam, new players will need instruction (i still cant whisper) but not dictatorship.  Help players to find those of similar styles and as a playerbase understand what motivates you to play may not motivate them, but likely your end goals are similar enough to be helpful to each other. So work together  instead of alienating them with smugness and superiority, and I think both squads and playerbase would grow.
