      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.

  1. God no, that would alienate your old base who is the heart and soul of the game. Reset the squads and you could get someone hijacking a day 1 squad who has no affiliation. Would be pointless.....and good long time people would leave. I haven't been around since day 1, but I'm at 10 years, and I can tell you the 101st is the only squad I have ever been in, and outside of starting my own, there is no other squad I would join. The fun, the laughs, the good, the bad its a part of the experience. Sure our numbers have fallen off over the past 4 years, but we have that bond you don't find in many games at all. You can't force people to merge and expect them to be best of friends. You get resentment.....abandonment....and a unknown, but hey it could also work out in the positive, and if people want to merge that is cool too. Point is, don't dictate what people should be doing.......let us play our game, our way, our style with our friends.
  2. Its like a mini forums, even though we have that too.
  3. They said on Facebook a few weeks ago, the current way will still be available.
  4. the discord logo on the overlay is really...really annoying. For someone who's 60% deaf and only hears in one ear, i rely on overlay for certain peoples voices.
  5. Wasn't there suppose to be a 109 with a bomb at some point.
  6. You guys already run around in full sprint mowing people down before you appear with your mg-34's. Sure as hell don't need you running around towns with them on a bike.
  7. i personally use 5 engine 6 gear trigger main 3 secondary 4 zoom in 2 auto pilot (but usually use a button) 11 for jettison and throttle tab for throttle i use my keyboard for everything else I'm sure there are more efficient setups, but i'm not a heavy flyer either.
  8. I remember when we were gonna get a Navy love patch.....then it didn't happen FeelsBadMan
  9. Germans rolling so much with there bloated number of Tigers they have time to shoot at Hurricanes lol. But lets be honest......those shots should have ripped that plane apart. HE or not.
  10. I think it would be a good idea to flush out the American kit before Steam.
  11. This is something we as a player base have had a hard time having to find out recently. There were rumors in other posts of 10 days, 3 days, tuesday, no one knows. And this is after all day of hearing nothing. Nothing on facebook or twitter either. A lot of people have no interest in intermission, but would like to know the info. We need a central spot that is updated within a few hrs (or when a decision is made) outside of the game so we can be ready and in the know. Just my opinion.
  12. Thanks, yeah it appears the old url is back working too.
  13. Was waiting all day for the forums. Old saved link was dead, never saw an email, no facebook, finally went to the main website and the forum link, linked to the new site, so I would possibly send out a email or post on facebook the new link to the forums so people can find it.
