      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. Cap timers were way way too big, so good thing CRS is trying to fix that. 30s is too short ? Try with 4 min or whatever.
  2. Well I was actually looking for a clarification from Xoom as I am sure he did not meant it in a bad way. Other than that we are all humans.
  3. Might have been discussed before, but I just read this book and for anyone with an interest on WWII is a must IMHO: https://www.amazon.co.uk/DAY-Through-German-Eyes-Hidden-ebook/dp/B00VX372UE There is some politics discussed as for example: "why were normal german soldiers fighting ?" But even more important for this community are the reports of the advancing of allied tanks without proper inf support, easy kills for 1 or 2 man with shreks. Also the immense power the air had and the crazy equipment used by both sides (remote controlled cars, tank flamethrowers, ...). How fast ATGs were deployed and how fast they could be destroyed . This book is also very graphical in some descriptions (this were interviewed soldiers 10 years after this terrible event), so be aware of that. (this book is also free for kindle unlimited, that anyone can try for free)
  4. I simply keep a windows partition for games. In the past I also started the game from inside a VM, but the frame rate was terrible (2/3fps). I used that only to HC during low pop while I was at work.
  5. Unless something changed in the last 4 years (weak pun intended) should be: 12 - 1 min 1 - 8 mins
  6. In the past I've sit in an FB for hours, waiting for an enemy that never came. Some times I spawn in a camped Base, flooded with enemies and have to fight it to get them back. Some times this game has less players, some times has more. Some times our side seems to be doing all wrong, sometimes we seem to be doing all perfect and the other side seem like a bunch of fools. If you want a game were whenever you login, you always get the same level of experience, this game is not for you.
  7. Not really. Have a look at this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_French_Air_Forces https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military_history_of_France_during_World_War_II
  8. I might be wrong here, but I think that Lumberyard will dominate the market in a couple of years. If you look at cloud services, Amazon is crushing the market (even if their prices are not falling, like others). Now Amazon is going after the gamming industry and they have the techology, the knowhow and buckets (pun intended) of cash. There is also this if anyone interested: https://www.humblebundle.com/cryengine-bundle A bunch of 3d stuff for almost nothing - imagine if CRS had 13$ we could have new animals (other than sheep) and .... better trees
  9. ... as if this game wasnt expensive enough.
  10. Give enough reasons for F2P to join this game in large numbers and that way, even a small percentage of conversions will mean much more money than now. Also, less of "sub because the rats are nice and they need money". And more of "sub because this game is amazing and worth every penny". I just wonder is the game engine could handle "large numbers" of players.
  11. Off-topic is weak. Very weak. We should invade it and end its miserable existence. All the dwellers there could become our towing slaves.
  12. I believe DOC stole XOOMs account Anyway, does this game have a lot of problems ? You bet. Is this the best game ever ? No. Are the Rats (past and present) the best ? haha ... no. This is still a (really) great game and I think lots of people hate it, but keep on coming back, because deep inside they know that they actually enjoy playing it (and the potential this game has is also undeniable). So throggy mate ... get out of the closet and assume that deep deep inside you actually love it. We wont judge.
  13. I will not consider it and calling me a douchbag over it, is not nice.
