  1. My subscription is locked. I resubbed as all infantry ground classes type of sub a few days ago and as of today my subscription is locked.
  2. Hi. I guess this is aimed towards xoom rather than a commentary on what has already been said. I've just resubbed with an all ground forces type of account. The drop in price from the premium account is fine for me and now I can afford at the moment to budget it in my monthly outgoings and feel completely fine about it. So I think that being introduced was a good idea and works for me. I have found it hard to find fights to get involved in though due to the number of players on. My opinions on the game have changed and what I think needs to change. I used to think even back in 2007 or so when I first played that just the graphics needed changing and that would sort everything out. I havent any interest in the moving of brigades and that level of the game, it's not aimed at me, so 1.36 didnt make a huge difference to me as a player, that's not a criticism it just didnt noticably impact my game. Right now as I have always thought there's enough units to play in the game, I think that's all fantastic. I'm not bothered about the graphics anymore. I think the game is good enough to play as it is an the dated look of can be forgiven once you realise the scale of what's going on. But for me comms is the main problem in my opinion. I think you could get more people to play and stay if you had in game voice comms rather than rely on having to persuade people to play using discord. If it's built in you can help new people immedeately rather than have to think it's probably going to take me a couple of hours of typing to help someone get into a game and that's if they even notice you typing a message to them to start with, even if they are really shy if they hear people speaking in game they could get help easier just listening. I know this can all be done using discord but for me Discord is like entering a club room that's seperate to the game and shy folk like me dont want to feel like I need to enter a clique to get the most out of the game. I guess this is nothing the developers dont know already but I think to me its the most important thing to get sorted and will really glue the game together. Easy comms that don't feel exclusive or awkward to enter or just listen in on would sort a huge amount of problems for me and I'd play more I think. So that's my two pence/cents. That's all that's really important to me. I think the game can more than carry its own weight, it's great I think you should have more confidence in what you already have rather than all introduce new variants, new players will be really happy coming into the game with the tons of stuff you can do, but it's more than a challenge to learn the game as comms stand, it's a chore that the payoff is worth the work once youve done it, but it's still a feels a chore and an unecessary one. I hope what ive said is a help to you. Hi. I guess this is aimed towards xoom rather than a commentary on what has already been said. I've just resubbed with an all ground forces type of account.

  3. Hi. As a player who isn't involved in the HC layer of the game and just gets his fun from being on foot and in vehichles what sort of things will I be able to do that I can't right now and how will 1.36 improve my experience.
  4. This is not a suggestion to do away with squads. It’s an extra idea. First let me tell you my situation with the game. I don’t want to be in a permanent squad, my spare time isn’t rigid and I can’t nor do I want to turn up to a squad night every week, this may show me in a light as antisocial non team player and also most of the time for me it isn’t practical to be on Discord, so now double anti social non team player, and as I’m on a mac theres no overlay so I can’t see who is speaking, so you may well ask why do I like playing. It’s a good game that I like playing. I try to communicate via keyboard as much as possible and if I haven’t marked something its because I haven’t heard it or seen it…most of the time ..sometimes I'm just tired. But when I do play I would like an in game option to group up as a temporary squad for a short while doing FB busts etc beyond one mission, but I don’t want to be part of a club that has to meet once a week to train. I just want to play, when I want and not feel any pressure to join in when I log in, sometimes when I log in Ive had a bad day and sometimes a good day.. but if I come on I’d like to just chill out and not chat on a mic but help out where I can. I absolutely love playing this game. It might be helpful as well for HC to see in game theres a group of two or three players that they have that are currently working together as a ‘day squad’ to send a message to rather than have to ask everyone in game if some of them could go bust a particular fb. Permanent squads are a great idea but, it’s not for me as I don’t want any more people in my life I might let down So without all the extra writing An option to move a group of two or more people to keep together in game for as long as they wish that can grow and shrink (join/leave) during a game session, that HC can see and communicate with and also other people can see perhaps. This might also encourage things like towing ATGs and other small team based activities that I read in the forums about that people miss doing in game. I think it would be a good way of helping new players and players that are less confident with their game knowledge. A separate comms channel like a squad but not with the pressure of when you log in you have to team up with the same folk and they know you’ve logged on, but you can send a day squad message from to side channel etc and when youve finished the session there's no pressure to be that team every time you play. It’s just a starting point of an idea and probably a broken one but hopefully it will spur on a better idea if there’s a conversation about it.
