      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.

  1. Why is everything in the "HEADQUARTERS NEWS FEED" forum showing up two or three times? Is it just me? Is it a feature? -Irish
  2. The ONLY issue with FtP players having to switch sides to play underpop is the squad mechanics. How would you feel, ending up playing against most of your squad mates? How would you feel not being able to join a squad at all, or getting kicked from your squad because you had to side-switch? And I don't agree about everyone being able to afford the $5/month. I'm the in-home caregiver for my disabled wife. We've had months where we BARELY squeaked by, and would have loved an extra $5. If we plan well, we can feed our two boys dinner one night for that much. Also, remember the announcement, "Effective May 1, 2017 the price for starter accounts will be $7.99 USD per month." That's an increase of 60% in one fell swoop. How about this? FtP players will have the OPTION to play the underpop side. If they do, they get access to slightly better equipment, such as semi-auto rifles. Playing with a bolt-action only is a drag, especially if you're "lone-wolfing" it. That way, they can either play with their squaddies and use the bolt action rifle (hopefully as part of a squad mission or team-up), or play underpop and get better toys. -Irish
  3. Oh, and the "you are not in a squad" is because one of the default text chat channel is a squad channel. After training, when you get into the live game and hook up with a squad (either for training or permanent membership), that will be where you will text chat with your squad mates. -Irish
  4. Have a rat coming out of the commander's hatch of a tank as the symbol. Armored Rat Studios? -Irish
  5. You have to commit to play Allied only. Request access on the Allied Discussions forum. -Irish
  6. Common sense would seem to say aircraft dropping bombs, yes. Demo charges, no... But what about tanks? I'm constantly amused that I can hide my avatar behind a half destroyed brick wall and a tank can't kill me through it. We should have to, at least, scramble for cover behind walls on the other side of the building. -Irish
  7. Sheb Wooley, often as his alter ego Ben Colder, was the Weird Al of country music, starting in the 1950s. He even had some hits in his own right. Check out "Purple People Eater" on YouTube. -Irish
  8. Xoom, you sick bastage! Actually, we need to add comments by nearby soldiers, such as... "OH! His guts are hanging out!" *sound of being violently ill* Heh heh... -Irish
  9. I've heard of a number of players who run secondary programs such as Discord on a second computer, such as a laptop sitting on the side of their computer desk, so as not to hurt the FPS on their gaming machine. It would be annoying as **** to keep seeing messages about missed voice transmissions when I was already listening to them. Being able to switch the messages off would defeat the purpose of having them in the first place, but would be necessary for some players. Also, I can foresee what a coding nightmare that would be, the WWIIOL client having to constantly scan the users' computers to decide whether or not to send the messages through. I can imagine that would also add to the already present latency problems unless it was an entirely separate program. It just doesn't seem practical to me. -Irish
  10. I just had an idea. TZ3 Gamez -Irish
  11. If you want some group air missions, post something on Allied Secure. I'll keep an eye out for them and join when I can. If they start happening on a regular basis, more people will think of it. Hopefully, they will start growing on their own. -Irish
  12. Spread the word! -Irish
  13. They've got a cure for that, you know. -Irish
  14. BY THE WAY... Since the Rats are offering the month of May as a free month of Premium for all FtP accounts, I posted on the three sites above that, if folks sign up for their account on the 16th, they will get their two week Premium "free trial" followed immediately by the free month of May, giving them over six weeks of free Premium time to start off their WWIIOL careers. Hopefully, we can get some action going on this Sunday, so any new players will be greeted by an active map and some intense fighting. -Irish
  15. I vote for "The People's Front of Judea." -Irish
