  1. Sure, everyone will just have to adjust their gameplay to account for this. You're insane.
  2. When I joined up in 1999, I played with a few guys in SST4: Sonderstrumtruppe Four: Greowulf. It was headed up by a DENTIST... His game name? PAINLESS. I played with BilboTN, MG42Doc, and Stonney. The gme was totally different back then; we coordinated regularly with other squads and managed offensives that raged for days. Truly amazing stuff... seeing a column of tanks 30 strong roling along, being pestered by enemy aircraft... and then being ambushed along the way. News traveled fast then. We got chit done! Of course, when the game went "live", it crashed repeatedly and after a couple of months I was able to get back in and play... but it was still much more fun than trying to move flags around and have CRS micro manage campaigns. There were a LOT of players on back then and in 2005, even MORE showed up to play regularly. When that happened, I was with the 21st, based out of Brouwershaven. Whenever the fight was there, we all went immediately to defend our home-turf! The game is an empty shell now. Sad to see it lingering on life-support, and hardly worth playing now.
  3. Well how about a comment like this from an old vet who played since before the launch? I don't know the answer to, "How can we get more players?!?" but I know this: WWIIOL is missing the MMO in MMOFPS. The air war is imbalanced, the tanking game is mediocre, the infantry play is blocky and a fella can't even so much as step over a log or wall. Nope, got to run around it. It's 2018 and all an infantry player can do is hit Q or E to look left or right. The weapons randomizing even the first shot from a rest is lame, the loopty-loop Havocs and DB7s that shrug off the concept of wing stress, drop a 500lb bomb at 500ft... the lack of an MG42, the rambo-ing of LMGs as people jog and clear a room... What more needs to be mentioned? The graphics?!? That everything done to or introduced into this game has been half-arsed since it's launch in 2000? Sheesh. Now please... here's the CEO calling out an OP for commenting from an account that's only been active for a few hours. The shameful part is that it takes a new player less than ten minutes to get fed up and decide they AREN'T going to pay a sub for this game. hahaha How very rich. also... sad.
  4. It was already settled almost a year ago. HC is supposed to be out... but it's not.
  5. There is no use in defending the HC system. A game that requires a significant portion of it's playerbase to stop playing the actual game and go babysit supply, attack objectives and motivate the players on a 24/7 basis is doomed for failure. People pay to play a game and most don't come to a FPS to sit and play online Risk. So... once again I see people acting as if the premise of this is valuable to the game and utterly ignoring the reality at hand. It's been a LONG time since 1.36 was promised, yet here the game is... still sloughing off players over this.
  6. It's still going off, because there are no rocket trucks, no P51s, no Russian anything, no King Tigers, no good looking buildings like those... Shall I go on? If they used their own models, then this is a misleading video. The version one gets when they pay money is NOT going to look like that. They are at least two years away from that sort of change. Got to get over the "Mac User Exodus" first.
  7. Maybe so, maybe not, but they're not in the actual working version of the game, and that makes it vaporware. They've been selling vaporware here for many years.
  8. I don't think those were meant to be teasers, and I suspect they are just stock models in some shoot your own video background software. Nice poly count, smooth edges, and then you see the actual game being played in the mini screen and it's night and day. I certainly hope those tank and plane graphics weren't put there to suggest this game has them or will have them.
  9. I stop in here and see that even the topic of the god-awful air war in this game is defended by the volunteer army, and they are just as insulting as usual. There is no excuse for the terrible imbalances between air superiority and the CS&R back this up. Thegame play backs this up. The 17 years of players complaining and leaving backs this up. Yet, here they come... desperately picking at threads to try and spin the topic away from the game's imbalances. No excuse would suffice here. These guys are the face of the new CRS?!? We lost a DOC, and gained ten more new DOCs
  10. Dude... that's an MG42. No MG34 ever had the squared barrel guard. It's a 42.
  11. WTH is that MG on the top?!? What is that thing?!? The most iconic machine gun ever invented is suspiciously absent from a game that prides itself on being an accurate sim of the Battle of France, sort of. No MG42 in 17 yearzz of operation. Failure.
  12. I may hop in, but then I may not. Still waiting for the HE/KE audits to be done and fixes implemented. I think the 64bit Mac business will probably take precedence so I'm not very hopeful. It's just not fun for me now. I can play "elsewhere" on games and know that tossing a grenade over the wall WILL hurt mein enemies... or mortar that looks and sounds awesome isn't just a show -it KILLS. I know, they're trying, and I applaud that, just not gonna pay a sub for a broken HE model anymore. Can't bring myself to do that.
  13. Man, you really are late to the party. The core group of veteran players has dwindled down to record lows yet again. They drive the content; you're spot on. They've also mostly moved on save a few relics that can afford to still be here trying. "He's dead, Jim."
  14. None of these new maps or ideas will be possible using the current engine or code. Sure, post pretty maps all you like, but this turd just CANNOT be polished any more. Gerv... squad play was gutted leading up to RA, and it was the straw that broke the camel's back. Oh, and some at CRS got caught making an African campaign map on the sly, which caused a lot of tension, too. @saronin remember that? Ha! Same guns, same infantry models... all being secretly stuffed into a new game. Some of those responsible for it are still here. Whatevs. The game as we know it cannot survive, not even for a one time fee. After paying in for an extra year once the 09 fix came, I can no longer see this platform working. Time to partner up with developers that have access to newer 64bit code, or compete directly with them and lose.
  15. None of this is possuble without a new engine. Time to move on.
