  1. So the work is lost? What about the other 1.35 features that didn't make it in?
  2. Thanks Badger. Shame. I hope time can be found for it soon.
  3. I was under the impression all the work DOC had done to extend/redesign many of the towns was due to be in 1.35. Maybe I missed it, but the few towns I've had a chance to fight in look the same.
  4. I'm not a fan of forcing FTP onto a particular side. The reasons should be obvious. There are plenty of variables in this game already which, if done well, could be used to negate the advantage of the over-pop side, without forcing them to stare at timers(as much). A combination of: Quicker capture. Closer and/or tougher MSPs. Tougher FBs. More AOs. More depot supply. Less delay for bunker capture. Quicker flag moves. etc Would give the under-pop side a much better chance of succeeding on attacks than they currently do. This game is at it's best when both sides are attacking with belief. I'm pleased this is finally working it's way to the top of the priorities list.
  5. I'm genuinely chocked Buck. This is horrible news. It's been a pleasure playing alongside you. You really will be missed brother. S!
  6. Did you get it fixed? Could you post your system specs? First thing to try though is to make sure your drivers, particularly for your graphics card, are up to date.
  7. I do think there is room for MTs in this game. Buying equipment would probably be difficult to implement due to the supply rules of the game, and that you can well imagine someone getting very annoyed when the tank they just bought was instantly killed when they spawned in at the wrong place. But offering shorter periods of full access, for example, could be a good revenue raiser while giving someone who is unsure or unable to commit to a full subscription a small taste of what they are missing. MT's work because once you have input your payment details once, there is a much higher chance you will pay for something again as it's quick and easy, the more you get involved in the game, the more you are likely to pay in the future. If they could also track new player stats properly, then that could open up a reward system so that players could earn credits when certain objectives are achieved eg a free 3 day all access pass when a player achieves their first A2A kill/3 caps in a sortie/5 kills as infantry etc etc but i digress lol. For what it's worth..... i know this game has some very dated features, but personally have never had an issue with the graphics level because the trade-off is to be able to have alot more players in a single battle(with a far larger map) than just about any other game i have played. Also the last version was released in late 2011, had they called the game ww2ol 2011(or something similarly modern ) instead of 1.35 i wonder if perceptions would be different. After all, MANY games devs simply re-package their old games each year with just 1 or 2 new features.
  8. I've never had this happen. Do you log in every time you access this site, or stay logged in?
  9. The rats are hoping to add US stats properly, but have said they are unable to currently due(i think) to staff changes. To access your US stats, next time you die as a US persona note who killed you. Search for their stats and you should see your name on their killed list. Click your name and that will take you to your US stats which you should bookmark for future use.
  10. I assume you mean this one.... drivers available down the page. http://support.creative.com/Products/ProductDetails.aspx?prodID=4915&prodName=Audigy%202%20ZS&page=0
  11. Do you have much packet loss? Is your ping stable and the same as usual? Most of the issues you mentioned sound connection related. I Don't know much about diagnosing these kind of faults, but i have had similar issues which turned out to be phone line related. Might be worth getting it checked. Other than that, could you try another router or network card?
  12. Ok thanks petie, i'll save my money for now then Oh, and i meant 1.34
  13. Specifically, will a SSD drive improve spawn in times when switching to a different area of the map? I have a good system(2500k/8gb ram/ win7) with a decent HDD, but like most(all?) others it can take up to about 30 seconds to change to a new area since 1.31. I can handle the wait, but when i am MOIC this is VERY annoying as you don't know what important text you have missed while trying to spawn in. I have always been the type of MOIC who likes to spawn in wherever there is action to see for myself what is happening, this is being made more difficult with the current delay. So, anyone using SSDs has this improved for you? If so, how much difference has it made?
  14. The 520 doesn't look like a great card tbh, i think it would probably work with this game, but only just. I'm no expert though, so check out this link.... http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-7.html As you can see from the list above, the 520 is a full 10 tiers below the old 450 you used to have. Even though the 2gb model is probably better than the stock example they have used, i would suggest upgrading if you can. I'm not up to date on the prices, but i use a 560 which is from the same series of cards, but is a significant step up and runs this game very smoothly with most graphic options turned up high.
