  1. Done. Don't worry about it, I am looking forward to seeing some fresh people step up to positions. A good balance between vets and new guys is very much welcome.
  2. @csm308 and @Airbored have been added. Thank you gents!
  3. Added @obelix1 and @garby2. welcome aboard gentleman, we need more people signing up!
  4. Roster updated, added @dustyhc and @Justinrot. Let's keep it rolling, more sign ups needed!
  5. I had Heavy in the wrong spot, placed him as your XO.
  6. Your sole job will be to take pictures of the event. You're a pretty good combatant so I'd suggest a different role, perhaps an infantry leadership one.

This is an official live server event that will be held during the Campaign. It will be a HUGE operation including both Allied and Axis players on (Sunday) March 8th 2020 featuring both returning veterans, existing players, and our new Steam users. This is the ultimate visualization of World War II Online! We are looking for leaders to step up and take command positions to assist with recruiting and organization. Pass this out to Secure Squad forums. Get your friends here and lets make this a big time party. ALL are welcome. ---SQUADS WELCOME--- Arrangments can be made as best as possible to get people where they want to be.

  9. The Zealand Islands are a sacred place for predominately Naval Players. Non-Naval Players have literally the entire game world at their disposal... I am not convinced this is a good idea. I'd like to hear from @delems, @eyeshank, @OHM and other die-hard naval guys.
  10. I really support this, great to see this call to action coming organically from within our very own community - WOOT! Another demonstration of WWII Online having the very best gaming community around.

  12. I think I've been pretty transparent about things, the news from the beginning of this month illustrating that. Everyone who is a veteran of this game by now should realize how significant their subscription is. We're 100% community funded, and that alone. The community is doing its part in resubscribing and keeping their accounts solid in our new billing system. As always, that is the #1 thing that we need done to keep everything healthy. We can get to the bugs, feature requests and iterating as long as that is taken care of, because things (colo / isp / power / security / people / technology) cost money. I will not be diving into the particular numbers, it's inappropriate to do so and it is truly not productive. We just had another great challenging moment in our history with this recent billing, by which many of us have had to once again sacrifice to our limits, that we're just now starting pull out of. I am happy to share more of what my plan is in due time but at this particular moment, the Roadmap 2019-20 serves as our primary guidepost, as well as keeping things healthy/operational. Just know that I and our team are committed to keeping WWIIOL operational, and advancing its technology within our resource capabilities. I am interested in doing more, and we can do more, but beyond our capacity of output truly does require increased subscription revenue so I can buy the time and talent of the individuals capable of making those things happen. Meanwhile, WWIIOL continues, and as I said earlier our longevity has been increased with the recent infrastructure relocation.
  13. The final RATS standing when stuff hit the fan in 2012 were: Doc Gophur Bloo Myself (Xoom) Maypole This is who it came down to, to make the decision of digging the trench and holding the line or retreating. As you know, we decided not to give up and we pressed into the challenges. Ohm was there too along with a handful of other volunteers, and that number grew quite a bit. It's a long story to put together those pieces, but it's something I'll write up one day. It is still very fresh in my mind as if it was yesterday, the whole series of events. What has brought us to this point is a no-give up mentality and optimism for our future. It could not have been possible without two things: 1) The RATS who were willing to do it, for very little. 2) The Community continuing to pay their subscription. Not surprisingly, this is what continues to this day. This working relationship is what will take us into the future, and now with CRS being responsible for the infrastructure, it solidifies our longevity even further. Stay the course, let's keep it up. #WEGOTTHIS
  14. Sniper is very much still an active contributing member with CRS, if this was intended as a joke, I don't find it funny. There was some work done very recently to get database replication established which was a key component to getting stats configured. I need you guys to be patient and recognize we are aware of this and how important it is to you. We are not intentionally delaying anything but it's not a simple matter of "Hey dude, turn my stats on." Takes a little bit of effort to get things properly configured.
  15. I spoke with the team briefly about this on Tuesday during our regular meeting and it's a known thing that needs to get done. I don't have an ETA for you at the moment. Best information would come from @SNIPER62.
