  1. Im not sure I would use the word captivating to describe my first couple of weeks here - and I dont mean that negatively. Game was great, but I died so many times. If you dont like a challenge this isnt the game for you. Its been 10 years and Im still learning every day. Onboarding for new players is going to be crucial.
  2. yes the key here is to get quality equipment from somewhere other than a camped AB. Especially hard if you are trying to get a high visibility 88 out of an AB, even in the early stages of an attack.
  3. Axis = Bad guys? they MIGHT be good guys? what kind of garbage is this? I play Axis because when I started I played both sides, then an Axis squad (1775RDF) took me under their wing and taught me how to play. I STAY axis because of my squad (Blitz Kader formed out of 1775RDF). Doesnt mean I have ANY affiliation of affinity to historical Axis behavior. Pretty weak post Quincannon.
  4. Hey Selvender, glad you found a good home. I didnt realize the 7 day auto kick was in place for new recruits that come into the host squad. That might be a little fast CRS. Let me know if we can help you again Selvendar - you know where to find us (Blitzkader).
  5. This has been happening for me lately as well. It always correlates with enemy being near. I just assumed it was our new version of EWS.
  6. Selvendar makes great points. Rats I sure hope you are doing some followup with your new signups (that pay) to get their feedback. Its priceless. I've held off on talking about one point that Selvendar alludes to, because I dont have any solutions to offer. But the line "Just a bunch of grizzled veterans having a grand old time camping FRU's and spawn points and just generally abusing new people" is pretty appropriate from the Noobs side. There are people who have been playing this game from the start who know the map by heart, so they know where the frus are going. They know the alleys and rooftops. They know all the exploits. Explaining to new guys the other night that being in a great defensive position and not moving was actually a bad thing is kind of wrong. Obviously you cant tell vets to dumb their game down, but for this game to get where we all want it to be you have to attract, and more importantly KEEP, the new blood. Having a 6/1 KD against noobs is bad for the game. When I look at my stats and see Ive killed the same guy 6x in the last 5 minutes, I know I might have just cost us a subscriber because that person probably was frustrated as hell and couldnt figure out what was going on. Its not the graphics people come here for, they want good gameplay, and to often we (the vet playerbase) spoil it for them, however unintentionally.
  7. Thats the wrong answer OHM. Heres what I posted under the topic new player retention - which should have gone here anyway. Do we need to Crowdfund another position - Social Media Coordinator? In todays digital world there should be no reason the website isnt always up to date with the most accurate information. Whats the current state of the map? A quick short recent AAR to give a browser a flavor of the action. Games in Intermission which means... New Campaign starting X/X/X so get your weapons ready! Email blast letting people get ready for new Campaign. Etc Communication is the life blood of a business. To often struggling businesses cut marketing and comms first since they have trouble tracking the tangible revenue generated from those positions. This game absolutely cannot afford to be lacking in those areas. And Xoom if you are spending your time doing this, believe me you are costing yourself money. been there, made that mistake.

  9. What a strange coincidence, I've played this game 9 years and have NEVER been sent a message to logout in game. I posted my above comment today (which totals now 16 forum posts over all these years), not sure what the issue is with the comment, and voila, I get a message that Im offsetting and showing through walls and stairs. This was in Rethel a few minutes ago, I wasnt in any cps to be on stairs, and wasnt showing through walls since I was basically running through the streets to get to the AB. Amazing timing I guess . . .
  10. Brave post Blimpy, because you absolutely had to know this would be turned around on you as someone doing it as well. Games had a lot of issues lately. I had someone kill me in a cp yesterday that moved so fast I couldnt turn fast enough and this was someone I heard coming so I was prepared. And it wasnt the teleporting jump either, my computer rendered them smoothly past me but about 3x the sprint speed. And yes it was someone considered an "expert". My guess is the experts are just better at utilizing some of the games flaws. Dont know why anyone would cheat, that would be boring wouldnt it!
  11. complaining is about. Fight in Carignan last night was great. Got swamped by Allies after we had all 3 spawns the first time, kept digging and took the town the second time. BK had 30 plus on, and a lot of them were new to the game, so encouraging there. Sure theres issues with the game, got lag killed and probably gave some lag kills, drink another beer and get over it. This counts as the good post for the day!
  12. I think I can qualify as not a whiner. I stayed axis and took the beating along with most of BK (think my KD was better with all the targets!). The MP40 isnt right, I've emptied full clips at less then 20m to get no effect. Dispersion is bad - BUT- I have no experience with Allied weapons (dont want to get my hands dirty) so it could be the same there. If it is, they should all be fixed. Im pretty sure Kchip didnt say fix the MP40 and nothing else. And the reason very few Axis post here Kchip is you are NEVER going to win this battle with this crew. Play the game, have fun, hope CRS makes it better for all!
  13. Im having the same problem. Never had this issue until patch.DSL connection. Finally got in after 20 plus attempts. Windows 7.
