      Need help for incoming players.   04/29/2017

      With the looming Steam release, we are anticipating many new players to the game. This is great for all of us, and it's important that we retain as many as we can. With that in mind, we'd like to enlist players to help with the inevitable questions asked in the forums. Ideally, gameplay questions are asked and answered in-game, but it's not always easy or convenient to answer questions while playing. A Gameplay Support Forum would be a good place for those who want to help. We are now accepting volunteers for the Rat Patrol, who will provide correct and consistent info to new players in the Forums. The more new players we retain, the better it is for the game and the biggest hurdle in player retention is grasping the complexities of this game. If you are interested, send me a PM.

      Squad Leaders Contact GVONPAUL OR Dodger for Squad Forums   05/18/2017

      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.

  1. I have an idea: We launch Steam by side affiliation. You pay to play as part of an allied force or as part of an axis force. We bring Japan and Italy in and each side has the ability to achieve the nuclear bomb if they protect their scientists and research facilities long enough. The game will last for years as all sides attempt to reach the holy grail. Then BOOM!
  2. We will finally put to rest the notion that player numbers matter. I just hope they up the timers.
  3. No tank was ever as quiet as our allied tanks. They don't even break a twig sneaking up on you. We need some crunchy leaves and twigs in this game. The occasional broken tree branch and scraping sounds as they move through the forest.
  4. It's all about stamina. Go ahead and shoot your lmg hand held but you better expect to wear yourself out very quickly. My poor rifleman can't even hold aim when prone and a zook player doesn't die from heat exhaustion chasing tankers for miles on end. Stamina Stamina Stamina! It needs reworked first.
  5. Before we nerf the LMG can we nerf the allied bazooka player? They can run for miles and miles carrying that tube plus 4 rounds and literally run down a tank.
  6. Hip firing would jam it. Shoulder fire would work.
  7. We wouldn't need a hip firing LMG if the MP40 was fixed
  8. Nobody is getting a flying truck before I get my motorcycle. Nobody.
  9. Firstly, I am going to take a deep breath. Then I am going to do my best to help them. A new wwiiol is beginning.
  10. good news.
  11. Mos doesn't say anything. He lets his AA gun do the talking.
  12. The problem is the lack of in game local voice comms. Squads are really effective but some times you just need to grab a few players near you and point them in the right direction. That is very hard to do with the text chat and the current "find my channel on (name your favorite) external comm software. One thing that does help a lot but most players do not want to do is use the mission leader as a leader. Stay back from the action, observe, coordinate, communicate. ML does not have to be the guy charging in while others follow behind. Things would be better if you could just chat with other players based on their proximity to you. Most of us understand how to set up a perimeter but lack an easy way to grab players working near us. The mission leader is most effective when he communicates his wishes or the orders of HC or other ML's in the area. That ad-hoc temporary squad action is not easy atm. The other obvious problem that causes so much frustration is low numbers of players. When numbers are up, and people are available, things just run better. Every time I log in and see a lot of complaints it's due to player numbers too low on a target. This game needs lots of warm bodies. When we fall too low it becomes a hatefest between those who see the need to defend and those who see the need to attack. We need both types. Steam is going to be chaos but really fun chaos when new players begin to understand the game. Until then, it's best to adjust to the moment. Sometimes you just have to hang on and deny the advance because you simply do not have the numbers to pull off a successful capture.
  13. I updated to it a couple days ago. Not a single problem with any app for me. You could try Driver Booster to make sure all your drivers are up to date. check the nvidia forums too.
  14. I'm a lone wolf that marks and communicates constantly. If there was a stat for this my name would be at the top.
