      Seeking Squad Leaders!   04/09/2017

      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.

      Recruiting drive.   04/16/2017

      With the anticipated influx of new players on the heels of this summer's Steam release, there is a reasonable expectation that forum traffic will increase. I'm looking for volunteers, not just to moderate, but to help answer new players' questions or direct them toward the correct answers. The forums may be a player's first contact with the game and we want to ensure that it is a positive experience. A happy player is a player who sticks around and the more new players we can retain, the more resources we will have for development.
      With that in mind, we are looking for current players with a positive attitude and posting history. PM me if you are interested.

  1. I'd love to see a follow-up from lightfoot on this. Is he around? Is he still playing? Has he gotten better at tanking? @lightfoot You around still?
  2. When would ANY LMG ever need to use a pistol in a CP? Please, Lipton... just please. As to the suggestion others have made about issuing pistols to all riflemen, NO. Hardly any were issued pistols. Why not just remove half of the rifles in the game and replace them with SMGs then? Since you want to go off the rails and all... why not make it fun?
  3. Lets add to this the graphics, the buggy gameplay, the HE not doing jack squat and the ways that the code can be exploited and it's gonna sink. People don't even like paying a sub for WoW, but they do; and WoW has new content every month and a very dedicated fanbase. Anyone who tries this game out as a flight sim is just going to laugh and go elsewhere. I hate to disparage one of my most favorite games of all time, but hey - it is what it is. Heck, I've been a very dedicated part of the fanbase here for years and even I can't justify paying to play this currently.
  4. Awesome, thanks!
  5. It works OK, but without voice activation allowed it's a no-go for most of my squad.
  6. There are a LOT more engine possibilities now than there were in 1999.
  7. ...because if CRS can spend the $500 a year on more important software to improve the game and keep things going until we can hit a Steam release and much wider audience, it's not reinventing anything. It's just good sense to not shell out for something that can be free.
  8. I've successfully gotten Discord to work, but I can't find DDz voice channels in either Axis or Allied. Did they not get added?
  9. OK, break given. I was wrong, because my OS was in rough shape and unbeknownst to me, Windows updater had quit MONTHS ago. Who knows why, but it stopped looking for and applying updates and it ended up with a bunch of registry key corruptions. Discord is working now.
  10. RIP
  11. Heavy265 is temporarily on leave, much deserved and no worries. The support forums will do otherwise inside of the channels as well. Is there a specific inquiry we can help with? JUSTIFICATIONS FOR MOVE TO DISCORD Discord is 100% FREE. Discord has no space limitations, our TS servers had maximum "slot" counts. Discord will help us keep players connected regardless of the other games you might play. Discord is much easier to use and we have a whole support database supporting us. Discord is multiplatform (PC / Mac / iOS / Android / Linux) and even Browser (though limited in functionality). Discord has web hook integrations, which will allow us to expand live campaign notifications to all platforms. With Discord, high command can let you know when a major campaign event is taking place. With Discord, CRS can keep you in the loop with development updates more rapidly. Discord allows integrations like Twitch / Youtube and other services. Players can easily Stream / promote game. Screen share and video is coming, allowing you to share your activity with your squad and other players. There is a very simple text interface that connects the whole server together, no more isolation. Active development and expansion into future technologies is underway. There is an integrated voice solution which we are investigating, potential tie in for in/out of game comms (NO PROMISES ON THIS!!!). "Playing other game" icon will allow us to gather new players via exposing our brand to other communities. Discord has five pages worth of complaints about it not installing or updating and it sucks ballzors.
  12. I'm having some major issues just installing it. I've started a support ticket and they responded rather quickly with the same info I had gotten from the main site. I did them again, and tried the link they provided to install, (a different one than is one the main page,) and nothing. Tried running the installer as admin, in Win 7 and 8 compatibility and nothing. I'm not convinced it's such a great product.
  13. Edit: fixed
  14. I got it to work, and found I had some corrupt Windows files. I have reinstalled windows and am back on track. XOOM even worked with me one-on-one to try and get it to work, and that helped to figure out the problem. Apologies for assuming my OS was intact and fully functional; with Windows I should know better.
