  2. Unsure, however if it's modelled on the Blitz A, I would imagine it is because it's 4x4, and also why it outperforms the Bedford cross country.
  3. Coasting a truck is something that can be done irl. In most vehicles for that matter. When you consider that the Bedford is 100% [censored] useless, it's kind of same-same on balance. LOL.
  4. Are you currently a premium subscriber?
  5. Such a shame, as its the single biggest issue new players raise as a turn off. I can't think of another game that is more expensive per month.
  6. Hey all, Through my RL employment I've made some good contacts in printing and merch manufacturing/wholesale. Two of them have agreed to do me some free mock-ups for any merch ideas. I've spoken to XOOM and checked if he minded my polling this. Quite simply, the reason for this poll, is that I'd like to focus the efforts of my contacts, so that their time is not wasted on things no one has any interest in. Currently Merch is done via Cafepress, which isn't the best quality, nor the best margin for profit for CRS. Additionally the merch hasn't been updated in awhile, so maybe some updated designs might entice a bit of spending from us players to help the game along. If you have a moment, and wouldn't mind, please select the items from the options, or make a comment below with any good suggestions! ** TO CLARIFY ALSO: This is not a 'given' , CRS will have final approval on design or any changes, and final say dependant also on profit margins being reasonable for CRS too!
  7. Like this size?
  8. Brief update: First two designs are done, with the rest to be finished by end of next week. I will then submit them, along with pricing/costing to CRS for their approval. Watch this space
  9. Under $50 doesn't give you many decent options. Particularly if you're wanting decent sound, good mic and USB. I'm a bit of an audiophile, so thought I'd give ya a bit of two cents: 1. LOGITECH G-Series ($25-48) Avoid like the plague. Don't. Just don't. 2. CORSAIR VOID PRO 7.1 ($59.95) If an extra $9.95 won't break the bank, the Corsair Void PRO is a 7.1 upscaled-surround. Sound quality is decent. Good enough for movies, calls, voice comms and WW2OL quality sound. 3. HyperX Cloud Stinger ($49.95) Frequently sold out, for a reason. This is probably the best bang-for-buck you'll get in the sub-$50 area. Good all rounder. 4. MSI DS502 Circumaural ($40-45) I'd also cautiously suggest these. The build quality could be a bit better, but it performs on par with the HyperX in a lot of testing. It has better software than the HyperX. 5. Creative Sound Blaster Inferno ($40-45) These are a 3.5mm connector. That said, they are actually one of the highest rated average headsets on the market. They do a lot of things well enough to please people. My personal set-up currently depends on if I am streaming, or if I'm simply playing. I use the following: STREAMING: Blue Yeti Pro Studio XLR Sennheiser RS175 Wireless Headphones PLAYING: Sennheiser GSP600's IMHO - sound quality is a big 'must have' for me. If ya can afford more, spend more. Don't 'make do' with [censored] headphones. You'll replace them faster, and more often than a decent pair - assuming you are sensible enough to look after your stuff!
  10. You could just drive a Bedford - driving one feels like you're attempting to plough it through a swamp/marsh? Close your eyes and it's like you're there...
  11. 1998 called, and said to let you know that no one is on dial up anymore....
  12. HI ALL, Thanks for taking the time to vote if you have. Going from the above, the first mock-ups will be done for the following items: T-Shirt Coffee Mug/Cup Wall Poster (Sap Points) Wall Poster (Theatre Map) Now, with regards to the T-shirts we will be knocking up the following designs for perusal, however if there's something you're keen to see, drop me a line asap and we'll try to include it! Standard Shirts: 1. Allied Forces Tshirt. 2. Axis Forces Tshirt. 3. Generic Supporter Shirt. Novelty Shirts: 1. "Tour Shirt" - All Campaigns with which side won listed down rear of t-shirt a la a band tour shirt. (will do #1 - #150 for now) 2. "Squad Shirt" - WWIIOL logo on rear, squad logo on front breast**** 3. "High Command" - Officer style shirt, including players name, available to HC officers from either side **** **** these shirts may incur a small surcharge, as creation of them requires additional print templates to be made
  13. I'm interested in how having more HC to share the present workload, is not the solution - to a lack of HC, or percieved lack of action by HC? Could you elaborate man? Don't get me wrong, not implying HC system is fine as it stands, it has some areas that could 100% be improved on. However a bulk of the issues I see faced at present are either due to [a] no HC online, or HC not pulling their weight, and in such an instance I believe more hands to do the work would help out immensely. (This bearing in mind that no major HC changes can be implemented this side of 1.36) I am actually concerned re: disappearance of HC and potential changes as it is practically impossible to get non-HC people to help do any required tasks now, if HC are gone entirely, it's likely you won't get ANYONE setting up AO's or checking CPs. I am def open to being proven wrong though! Maybe people will become responsible for their own fun...
  14. Actually the solution is more people need to volunteer at present. It's not a hard job by any means, it simply requires one to grow a thick skin, and be a bit open to taking criticism (sometimes from morons...)
  15. Oh nice, didnt even see this the other day. LOL. Thanks lads.
  16. Thanks for the feedback Dre!
  17. I'd disagree with you there man. I am involved with three very large communities based on steam, and subscription based games are some of the most popular being played. The issue here is that due to whatever reasons, the sub fees are not commensurate with the experience. I.E: Premium sub is more expensive than most other sub-fee games. Most other games, offering a lot more are around the $12-14 mark, without having to 'lock in' etc etc. Population is low, so someone for example playing from Aus/NZ will likely not stick around, unless they get involved into a squad in TZ3. There just is no reason to pay $20AUD/m to play a game where on average there is 10 players online for the entire server during our 'prime time'. It's a circular type deal at the moment, game needs money to progress, but the asking price on average is too high driving away customers and subscribers. I do agree with knucks though, no f2p model via steam is really bad decision mho. Steam could have saved this game, but with all due respect, the entire Steam release/rollout and management has been seriously flawed, and it's caused more damage to the brand through that mismanagement.
  18. Also added in Coffee Mug and Stein options for voting.
  19. Hi All - I will leave this poll up for next 24 hours. I'm gonna catch up with the design guys tomorrow afternoon. If you've not voted, please take a moment to do so. I'd appreciate your feedback.
  20. Awesome, I'll add the mug to the list of mock-ups! Thanks for the feedback guys. @Gretnine Got you covered on the minimal designs. Looking at both in fact. Current thinking Tshirt wise is: 1 x Minimal Design (likely logo), for embroidered polo and t-shirts. 1 x Heavy Design (logo plus additional art/logo) for Tshirts/hoodies etc. + any 'special edition' type prints for anniversaries or so on. + side specific apparel (i.e axis or allied forces specific) This is all subject to change of course! Just spitballing ideas around at present and really appreciate the feedback!
  21. Hi Riccall, This is a known issue - it's been down since early morning my time, almost 12 hours. I've a ticket lodged also. Last update provided said it should be fixed 'soon'.
  22. Yep, nice change to have people who speak to the players like humans. I agree with CE - Ohm is gold. Nicest, and friendliest RAT I've dealt with, and doesn't play popularity games.
  23. HI All, Returning player here. See a few comments above about returning vets etc, and while I can't speak for everyone - I do know that amongst the few ex-players I still associate with outside of this game, the biggest talking point for us about potential returns/resubs is BALANCING. From recent emails recieved this is being addressed in a much more sensible way than in the past. Based on this 'promising' propaganda, I've resubbed for now. I know there's many others watching/listening for more info on how this will be addressed moving forward. My two cents. - P.
  24. Few old faces here - welcome back guys. KC - few ANZACS still about mate !
  25. "... > Our records indicate that your subscription billing has failed due to unsubscription or invalid/incorrect billing data. This *may* cause your account to be deactivated. > > If you have already revised your subscription status, please disregard this message. > > LOGIN NAME: praevus" Well CRS, my records - and the records of my bank - indicate that my payment was drawn from my card on the 23rd of April. I even sent a copy of the transaction in an email, but as a reply - recieved the above automated email reply. Just checked my account and it's on 'grace' and likely has been for some days which means I won't be able to log the **** in again after this nonsense... Final straw. I'm sick of paying you money and getting headaches, stress and aggravation as my reward. FIX YOUR ****!
