      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


      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.

We are one of the oldest LW squadrons of WWIIOL, and are proud to carry the name of JG 2 Richthofen.  During campaign we only play LW as a group. Historically, JG2 Richthofen was one of the rare Luftwaffe units that campaigned in France from the first day of the Blitzkrieg to the end of the German Occupation. Having fought exclusively on the Western Front, JG2 was not an ace factory. It had, however, a great impact in the air war during the war, being credited with at least 2700 confirmed kills, most of them in the West. 


This image, "Tough day," by James Dietz, symbolizes best the resilience of our squadron. It was been here in WWIIOL since its early days, and witnessed (and contributed) to its glory days. And even when the times were tough, we lifted, we never abandoned the hope that the skies will be blue again. Or even on a day to day, mission to mission basis, we have the same attitude. We will lift, even if the skies are full of EA, with only a handful of us to oppose them. !S to all -friends and foes- from JG2.
