  1. good idea for a test. if say a $5 buck '3 month intro' sub could be done for new subscribers only PLUS a FTP month or even longer. anything to get more players into the game experiencing it. think many full/hero/builder/whatever subscribers wouldn't mind continuing to pay full price of current subs during this kind of test - we're the same ones paying now anyways plus trying to help with all the crowdfunding or fundraising campaigns over the last few years. also believe at this point the state of the game as outlined by Syd's most excellent post is way more about the business model, money, sub model, getting new players a taste as opposed to any gameplay aspects or mechanics - until/unless CRS has evidence that gameplay and not cost is the main reason for new players not sticking. hard decision for them.
  2. brilliant and forthright post syd with great info and insights. ty. agree with JS that more WBS and extensive FTP might, maybe get more players and with more players the game has a better chance to shine like it use to with combined arms, bigger squads, etc. but - perhaps the game had its shot with the Steam release - there were tons of new players, over 600,000 downloads of the game and it didn't stick - either because of the (eventual) subscription price, making it pay-to-win in the young Steam gamers' minds; or the old graphics, lack of visual jazz (crosshairs/jumping, blah) and certainly the actual difficulty and unforgiving nature of WWIIOL PVP play. maybe there are other issues and maybe there are other solutions - but for me, after 15+ years, I believe CRS best shot is to go for WWIIOL 2.0 - and see if the support/investment is there to actually upgrade the game not only to today's graphics and so on; but to adapt it to the new gaming world where basically subscriptions are way 90s and out of date and unpalatable to almost all players and the real money flows from micro-transactions and regular DLCs like new units, new map expansions, new loadouts, etc. the games kids play these days with DLC and microtransactions usually end up costing way more than $180/yr but its viewed more as a series of rewards, updates, developer vitality, new expectations and ongoing-ness of a game rather than a 'I gotta pay the man' monthly sub perspective.
  3. God blessed you once DOC and will do so again.
  4. go back and check the forums - same as it ever was. breakfast club. but I like the community - it has a sense of humour.
  5. When is intermission over? When does the campaign begin? And why is it a mystery every time a campaign ends?
  6. these are elbows.
  7. I thought is was 42. But 43 is a good answer too.
  8. yes. also for the lovely Insomniac SeaLions Operations I & II: > Kgarner > Wirklich > Potthead
  9. I think you're confusing Guy Lafleur ('The Flower'), the Montreal Hockey Legend, with the other LaFleur, who did a fake hockey disco album, with LaFluer (sic) the commonly mispelt Axis CinC. People often don't know which one of these triplets is real, especially when it comes to quadruple bypass surgery.
  10. We on axis awarded themouse 'The FieldMarshal Harvey Keitel' Cross for amazing defender against us. which he is.
  11. Players in many games, including this one, often form an attachment to their side their branch their squad and their friends. Some even prefer, and become expert in, specific equipment, say a DD, FMB - just like some prefer a certain plane or tank or infantry weapon. Your zeppelin's-eye view perhaps keeps you from noticing some of the finer aspects of the game and players thereof.
  12. We, the OT Committee for A Better Relationship with The Harbour (sic), would like to respectfully inform all forumites, players, CRSer's and Powers That Be, that there is A RIOT brewing over there. We don't normally like to make waves, but OTLeaks has recently received from un-named and unknown Ukrainian Navy Sources secret documents planning a full NAVAL UPRISING via the Harbour with the following demands: more naval infantry with full loadouts country-designated marine uniforms including special hats special navy only amphibious opels, morris and lafflys bigger guns on FMBs tank-busting torpedoes tugboats for destroyer auto-pilot guidance submarines and aircraft carriers for each side correct and enhanced naval 'piping aboard' sounds on each naval spawn-in swimming dogs correct spelling of the word 'Harbour' throughout TGTCWTF (the game that comes with the forums) You have been warned! Beware the Harbour!! OT CFABR-WTH Sorella, Co-ordinating UnderSecretary
  13. brilliant as always from Propa.
  14. That's OT in a Nutshell.
  15. Visit OT for Details on Forum Fun.
  16. city cps should be a bar caffe with AI civilians and music. and girls. and booze.
  17. I blame Oin and the Axis Dwarf Legion.
  18. On l'appelle 'L'Immortel' - comme Rocket Richard, taberwit.
  19. thx for the info. and yeah at least we're complaining about something small and inconsequential compared to the historical loadout and turn ratio for some not yet in game plane or the mantlet armour thickness for a tank the 2nd half of 42 compared to the first half of 41. or the egregious doppler effect engine audio of the off-road morris in 3rd gear in the rain.
  20. same. it should say somewhere prominent: uninstall and download from CRS website. downloading the 'patch' from the login is a waste of time since you only learn afterwards from an error message that you have to uninstall.
  21. agree. though I thought there was an old ATSF logo on one of the boxcars.
