  1. I  may add a note so:

     

    It appears to me that what hurts us all is to be found in the . reports and chat bars as it illustrates raw feelings and abnormal situation that frustrate the writer.

    I for exemple send a lot of . reports and even so I know that likely 10- 20% of my reports are likely due to something I missed in the action and is likely to be invalid ( Even so I think before I write...). It does represent what is not working properly in the game... Something that if repeated again and again might be a problem.

     

    I think RATS do a great job with terrain, new buildings and toys on a steady basis and the subs are reasonably priced when you compare to the amount of entertainment we get, I suppose the alternative could be that we could charge by the hour of play... So those who play less don't feel like they pay too much? But I do not think it affects numbers that much. (And SD should be removed then)

     

    For what I have seen the last 8 years, upsets players leave because they saw something in game they got frustrated by, piiised of about, and it s mostly about how the action unfolded.... Or weapons got.... " Changed".

    So I encourage RATS take some more serious look at  dot reports and their trends, group them up, see what comes on top and start addressing from there... I bet magic will happen once you go after what the problems are, experience now shows that nothing good  happens when you try to tweak the mechanics to influence outcomes. Actually the opposite.

     

     

     

    Just a note....

     

    S!


  2. I would prioritize towns that have an isolated AB and not change the ones where Bunkers are close to other buildings, the design of those awesome bunkers do not belong in urban areas, they are clearly meant to oversee open fields like Airfields or on the edge of coastal towns... Maybe towns near a river  too would make sense as well.

    But yes it would be good to have more of those in Game. Stuff like that trigger excitement to players and to my opinion help retaining guys in game... New buildings, new terrain fixtures, new PPOs... That s fun to have stuff to discover, play with, fight in....

  3. Today a fun, tough, long, exciting, exhausting, bloody battle raged in Rocroi….

     

    Axis trapped 2 Allie brigades, its HC and the town garrison in Couvin and they tried all they could do to free it... Allies did fight well and hard.

    We struggled to line up enough supplies to stop them from breaking through... Most the battle down to rifles... For hours...

    Losing the bunker was a hard blow and with no link CP left only 1 thing saved the day and closed the deal....

    EAGLE MADE a DFMS all the way from CHIMAY and in a perfect spot.... Allowing AXIS teams to regroup, recap... kill. 

    Without EAGLE's actions and the support of all men in or around town Allies would have successfully freed themselves.... EAGLE was the Hero among Heroes!

     

    We owe you, STEP FORWARD and receive the 110meritstar_ribbon.gif Merit Star

    Awarded to an officer or player that has shown meritorious service to the Axis Side. This can be from gaurding a bunker, running supply, ht/opel driver ... This award is highly regarded and the recipient of this is held in the highest respect by OKA.

  4. It is time to award a group of men who showed AXIS SPIRIT and at the very least, dedication to make things happen!

    Are ALL those who deserve recognition in the following line up of Braves? No... Some men worked or accomplished amazing things in spots so dark that HC itself couldn't see them.

    Yet we know they are there and for that reason, I thank everyone, yes.... E V E R Y O N E  Not forgetting AEF men who helped us achieve a good campaign. S!

     

    Here are a select few lucky bastages that I am proud of fighting alongside:

    As those men already know I am sure As Campaign commander I was not the most flexible and once decision was made I gave directions that did leave little room for misinterpretation or deviation as I believed it was in the best interest of all AXIS troops and AXIS' final goal:  Victory!

    {And thanks for putting up with me}

    Memorable mention to SQUADS attached to 3rd PANZER Division.

    This Division made the South cut possible, then destroyed the Allie defensive line along side the river starting near Sedan and created the Central pocket then helped cutting Antwerp off before Heading to ENGLAND for a brutal rampage!

    The LUFTWAFFE also deserves a GREAT SALUTE for doing everything it could to support Ground actions, Always responding to calls!!!!! S! Many paradrops would have been impossible without cleared skies!

     

    S! To LAFLEUR, DUDECAN and AXIS!

  6. During the battle of HEESCH, AXIS was throwing all it had toward the town to break open the pocket where 40 Axis town were trapped... Do or lose it all time.

    Many fought for a couple hours bravely, relentlessly... Then Icarus66 came to N bunker to help Shagher to guard it while  under constant Allie assault.

    Twice, as an ATR and with pistol only he fought back all Allies and used all its bullets literally to the last one...

    He lived to kill so many that all held good and the rest of the troops could focus on the South part of town.... Great Great work!

    . Majority of folks who seem opposed to it are predominately Axis players. 

     

    Can we free Riflemen from SD at least? So then you have the option to still play??? I insist SD is against players game enjoyment, Allie or Axis. 

    And if it is noted it affects a side more than the other then it should absolutely be reduced.

  8.  

    Today at Noon US Eastern time Operation DRAGON was launched on schedule and as planed.

    The awesome execution and teamwork required from Air and Ground worked perfectly.

    I and all at HC are very proud!!!!! THANK YOU ALL!

  9. In a CP even with a longer cap timer at least  you are still playing, you can kill ect… Staring at a page waiting to spawn in you are not.  Even I choose to  run errans rather than wasting time in front of my screen. So are we in the business of losing attendance? I am under the impression the business model includes having more guys playing. 

    It is hard enough to bring in new players, then for us to keep them motivated ect…. Hurdles are not welcomed.

     

    S!


  10. No actually ALL TZ3 I show up at we are underpop, for as long I can recall.

    Which is why I was always scratching my head about the complains because it is Axis that had issues...  But... To avoid drama I will leave it at that. 

    Allies best players are doing their job the last few days and they do it well.

    Actually a GREAT fun to play vs the Allie elite.  Like this morning.

    I think it shows that Moral and focus along with lining up talent shows in the results. Not  nerfing weapons, supplies or  ect….  Just talent and Morale. So GJ to the  Allies, keep UP with the good play, I don't mind!
