      Seeking Squad Leaders!   04/09/2017


      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.

  13. Welcome back, Memnoch!! I look forward to seein ya ingame!!
  14. It's been 14 great years!! 30 July 2002 is the 14th anniversary of my subscribing to this wonderful world of World War II Online. I was badger'd by BADGER to try it out. He and I had flown against each other in F22 Lighting. I quit that game and others, because of all the cheats, hacks, and abundance of jerks in them. I was raised to believe and still believe, it's not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game that is important. For the next year, BADGER and I kept in contact via ICQ, email, and phone calls. Nag, nag, nag, Bou you gotta try this game out. No cheating, no hacks just great fun. Finally, he gave me his 2nd acct sign in stuff and I tried it out. Next day I subscribed! And I've been subscribed ever since. I sit here remembering the OJ charges, Tinker and his attacks on the south (at that time, the French and British could not occupy same towns), and dying a lot, but getting some success myself. I was playing French then (few people liked to play French at that time) so there was always equipment available. I loved taking a Pan way down south to RR bridge, crossing and settin up ambushes on the resupply columns. In those days, you had to bring your equipment to the target you were attacking. Running to the river, swimming the river, sneaking on the Amiens airfield, and giving spot reports to Rebel357 and his guys who were flying CAP. "Hey, Reb, got three 111s, leaving Amiens, headed towards factories. Just lifting now." LOL, then bout 15 min later, Reb says all down Boudreau. Thanks" I moved over to the Axis side in 2009, and it's been just as much fun. The game has evolved since then, some of changes I am not so fond of. But as Gunny Highway says, Adapt and Overcome! Still lots to do and fun to be had. The most amazing things is all of the friends I've made, There are just so many names, and I suffer from "sometimer's" (Hey, aint easy being 74 years old) so you guys know who you are. Thank you so very much!! Chatting with ya, gettin whacked by ya, and gettin even sometimes , makes my life so much richer. Loggin in with you guys is something I look forward to every morning when I wake up!! Thru my spinal surgery, the wife's different surgeries, most recently a spinal fusion surgery, her breast cancer, watching the news every day, whenever the stress of living becomes too much to deal with. I come down here to the man cave and log in. For a few hours or so, I lose myself in the fun and excitement of the game and the community. RATS, you and all those before, are such a dedicated group of people. I would so dearly love to shake all your hands, sip a glass of bourbon, and grope MotorMouth a bit. Sorry, RAFTER...hehehehe. Number 1 on my Bucket List is to have a Mouse tag on my ingame tag. If I win the damn lottery, I'm gonna get one! Thanks again my friends and RATS. You really have no idea how much you mean to me!
  15. Started in July 2002 at age 60! Everytime real life starts giving me a fit, I head down here to the mancave, and log in with my friends in this game! After about 5 mins....all is good again!
