  1. Not 1 day but 15 days... in the past you had 15 days of premium so you could actually try everything and be good at something and even learn some aspects. It's the only reason I become a subscriber, now players never have a chance to rank, unlock equipment and understand WW2ol has to offer. It must be a priority to have 15 days premium with a conversion to P2P after those 15 days this would do more than any marketing campaign.
  2. The barrel seems remarkably similar to the MG 151 MK103 30mm aircraft cannon (belt fed) being used for airfield defense. (WWII German) Note the gunners sheild and the multi chamber muzzle break. Pretty sure that is the MG 151 Aircraft cannon being used as an Airfield Defense like they did with the 30mm MK103 Aircraft Cannon probably they were lacking AA defenses and had a surplus or not used 20mm Mk 151 Canon(as you see on the background some BF109's) welded some adaptations and they had an AA , there were many cases in the German Army of field constructing/retrofitting/adapting weapons and guns to new roles.
  3. Could be a 20mm cannon from an Aircraft retrofitted as an AA seems too boxy and compact for a normal AA.
  4. I would advice the 660 is way cheaper and if you go for SLI it will surpasses the single 670. If you go for single the 680 performs way better, 660 and 660ti will still be able to run in high quality setting future games so the 670/680/690 are still somewhat overkill. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-670-review,3200-5.html
  5. I was supposed to be perma ban from the forums but I can log, check forums and write replies. I'm also no longer HC but I have access to the officer forums?...
  6. Your Ram and PSU is fine for current and future games. I would advice you: 1- A new Graphics Card 2- A SDD 3- New Mobo + Intel CPU 1 - For gaphics card I would advice you the 660(cheaper better performance ration than the 660ti) or 660Ti (Supports the new ARCTIC VGA cooler "Accelero Hybrid Extreme" uses air and water to cool your GPU). The 660 since it's cheaper allows you to SLI two really good graphics card at a decreased cost. Advice you to go for Asus or Evga Graphics cards Why no AMD Cards? I haven't had much luck with them yet despite using them in all previous builds they have also lower Shader Clocks but are better in other specs vs Nvidia. 2 - The SDD is really great for windows boot and to install multiplayer competive games like this. Samsung are known to be the fastest SSD although the difference isn't that noticeable, OCZ is also good you don't need more than 128GB thought, so i would advice you to check: OCZ SSD VERTEX 3 SERIES SAMSUNG SSD 840 SERIES I'm currently use a Transcend 128GB SSD is also good and has worked well until this day. 3 - You probably should consider a new Z77 intel mobo with an Intel CPU like the 3770k, 3770 or the cheaper 3570k Intel ivy Bridge CPUs have proven to be overall better than AMD and with a decrease power demand. (don't get fool by the AMD 8 Core Cpus) I would advice the following Mobos: Asus Sabertooth Z77 (No PS/2 support a must for good PvP mechanical Keyboards, No Legacy support for IDE Drivers) AsRock FATAL1TY Z77 PROFESSIONAL ( Supports PS/2, IDE HD and Even Floppy XD same price range as Sabertooth) AsRock OC Formula ( E-ATX Format, very well build with good components easy to OC Memory and CPU, PS/2 Support no IDE Support) Here's My Specs (I'm the process of upgrading my PC should have it next week): Case: Aerocool BX-500 (Medium Tower Case that supports E-ATX) Mobo: AsRock OC Formula CPU: Intel 3770k CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i Graphics Card: Evga 660 2GB SuperOverclock SSD: Transcend SSD320 128GB HD: Western Digital Barracuda 500GB RAM: Patriot Viper Xtreme Series Division 2( 4GBx2 at 2400Mhz) Mouse: Roccat Kone XTD Keyboard: Steelseries 7G (not worth it 6GV2 better) You can also choose to wait until the new Z87 Mobos and New Intel CPUs are launch this will happen soon probably Summer or Fall and buy the Z77 Mobos and 1155 Cpus at an even cheaper Price. PS: If you want to get better at gaming especially PvP a 120Hz 24'inch Monitor will give you an Edge like the BenQ 120HZ 3D Ready Monitors.
  7. I think I have said almost all that in previous threads it's good we are on the same page good to know that my views are shared by more players and the more players repeat this things the more likely will these pick up.
  8. Seems like the full download of the game fail and instead of 800mb uncompressed he only downloaded 500mb~
  9. AFAIK free accounts can use stats.
  10. I actually also enjoy the BB although we had no stats, there was also some small imbalances but the concept was great. The only thing that made it shine less was that in the low population times, players would loose a town we manage to hold the entire day. In the last day we held everything and it seemed we could win but when I woke up we had lost around 5 towns and we had lost the BB :/
  11. For me I would rather have a F2P + Subscriber model: F2P would have access to everything (maybe not Tiger/CH7/S76) but to use that equipment or ability they would need to spend points that they receive from killing and playing the game, in the end F2P would required to spend more time to get more points and enjoy the game therefore creating content for everyone. If you subscribe you would have no burdens or be forced to be a very active player. There should always be promos to reduce points to use X equipment and promos to subscribe. There should be also more flexible subscriptions like you payed 5€ to have 24h of premium equipment this would be great for people who don't or can't play too much and a monthly price is to high to justify their use. From what I have seen the dual system(Subscriber + FP2) is the most stable and has also a very high revenue and it's easier to implement in terms of balancing equipment of premium vs free accounts.
  12. True you won't alone but if you make part of a big group that is asking or requesting something CRS will take that in account. Setting a specific time for server resets saying no to 3rd Person drive of tanks and combat was the community.
  13. +1 Yup thought you wanted to see this campaign stats for total kills do has keepit66 said
  14. Those are the stats of last campaign not this or the one coming today. Stats page are bugged and require manual fixing at this time to update them.
  15. We need more players like you to be premium subscribers who can participated on the real forums "Premium/Subscribers Forums" where you can talk directly to developers and influence the game. (it's a shame free trials can't even see this forums and the discussions you see happening there) Many of the current subscribers are not what I would call hardcore gamers or people who are in touch with current FPS and Online game markets, you seem to be and I agree with most of what you said. I think as a Finn you can pay 9,2 € monthly for this game. The issues you brought up like LAN parties mass bans is very important. I invited a couple of friends in the past and I had the same problems.
  16. Tier 0, 1 Allies are the only ones with high velocity guns, the Panhard Scout Car, The Daimler Scout Car, the Matty, the S35, the Stuart, Crusader A13, Cru A15, Sherman 76 and the First Churchill. The only High Velocity Axis tanks are the 38T, IVG, STUG IIIG and Tiger.
  17. You mean this new website discussion : http://forums.battlegroundeurope.com/showthread.php?t=410119 The WW2OL has gotten it's up & downs but this at least it filter the real gamers that keep playing while believing BE concept is not only the future but still remains unique. The more games you play especially with features that can enhance this game and the better you understand BE the more valuable feedback you can provide, the more brains we have brainstorming and discussing ideas, concepts & what to prioritize the better the chance we have of find the best solutions. Imagine in my case being non-native English player I sometimes reread some of my threads and LoL at some of my mistakes or poorly made phrases, so you are not alone here For what you mention already you are not a typical player and your background is for me what the marketing target group should be all about, hope you get good on the game. See you on the battlefield as friend or foe
  18. The game is enhance with squads but squads don't mean teamwork, you can help your team with no squad like marking enemies and updating marks especially when it comes to moving tanks, reporting the enemies on chat, patrolling cps, driving a truck when someone requests it to tow a gun or give ammo, joining a Para mission, following mission leader orders, capping together with your team, sending PM's directly to a tank about an enemy tank or enemy ATG incoming to him is what I consider teamwork this all can be done without a squad.. I learn to play the game mostly alone by experimentation and learning from my mistakes it might take you years but it's not impossible and a part of the active player population even vets don't have squads.
  19. Nice we always need a "virgin" feedback that never tried the game , long time subscribers have adapted to the game and some issues no longer pops on our radar.
  20. Nice I used to be like you I came from Battlefield, H&D 2 and OFP. I found the game when it was launching in Europe from a magazine in a very small text about but It said the game had a very large map with half the size of Europe were you could use tanks, ships, planes and infantry, I instantly pre-order the game and start downloading old squad videos to learn how to play. I was a noob back then and my K/D was lower than 1 but I always try to learn and improve until now where I can use all ground equipment If you give it time you will enjoy a lot the game and it will fulfill almost all your FPS needs, I still sink a lot of time ingame and always have a good time. There are many things that are old and need improvement with this game the problem is that money and subscribers come and go, especially they don't come in waves more in drops so CRS never has enough money to significantly invest and improve the game and most of those funds get diluted by the game maintenance costs. You might not see it but there are considerable more sections on this forum only for subscribers more active when you can directly see and talk with the game developers, get more help & information. I would advice you to do so since 12$ or 9$ is a fair price for the game.
  21. People like to know what they are paying we have to be honest the game is still very buggy, it's still harcore, lacks a good tutorial and friendly UI, poor keymapper especially for EU players and if you are a OS 32bit unless you know how good the game is it's very difficult to overlook the long respawn loading time. Plus there are a lot of kids out there don't have a credit card and still have to request to their parents money to subscribe this was what I was in 2005 but I had 1 month of free player plus more 15 days so I could see the game true potential and eventually found it was good enough to ask for money for a 6 month plan.
  22. Having a F2P player at some point taste what the premium subscriptions feels like, is an essential point in any F2P system I'm very very disappointed for this not being in. But again the current FPA system was done with few thought, knowledge and time how they are suppose to work. The first FPA system allow this you had the first 15 days free will full access which is a common strategy used in many F2P systems after that you convert to a limited account but this was very deficient since one of the core gameplay aspects capturing wasn't even allowed XD The lack of a Para Rifle for FPA makes feel nauseous and makes me wonder if the RAT that knew this stuff is longer with CRS because the first FPA system allow this. Paradropping is such a selling point for news players even for me it was and one of the best features that shows the feature and player generation content at its best. This is something that is hurting me, F2P and CRS at the present since the new FPA I have never ever driven so few paras into action and Paratroopers game was almost dead only changing a bit now with new subscriptions drive. The same could be said about if transport planes were able to be driven by FPA I could drive a plane with a second account and command paras on the ground without hurting my stats. Basically basic concepts of F2P player content generation has to be understood having more tows, more truck giving ammo, more transport flying is something that giving to free to players improves the subscriber experience, the value of gameplay and the game it self.
  23. I'm looking for a monitor with more than 70hz refresh rate at 1920x1080 around 250$ but I can find any... People say a higher refresh rate it's less fatiguing for the eyes. Does anyone know a good?
  24. that's what I do. But it's annoying to have to type the password every 30 mins without activity or less.
