  1. @XOOM Forgive me if the I misspoke. I understand the concept of starting with less for a tighter command and control structure as far as number of divisions. I am more curious/concerned about the freedom of movement of the bdes on map. Will bdes be given freedom of movement or another bde be added so that units can move according to the same rules we he have now, Obviously it of great concern for many to maintain a "strategic" aspect of the game in addition to the solutions provided via garrison supply. So, again, just to make sure I am clear, and not rambling lol, will bdes have freedom of movement, rather than being "tied" to their DIV HQ and thus restricting strategic options/deployments?
  2. I am of the mind that 3 divisions for North/Center and South would be best. My biggest question is, are BDES going to still be tied to their HQ flag with movement restrictions. I feel if we want to keep the total number of BDEs down the freedom of movement is essential. Perhaps even keep 2 divisions but add another BDE in there, 2 divs with 4 bdes would equate to 4 "BCTS" that could be better allocated throughout the map. It is still a driving concern, that with present mechanics we will not see much activity from divisions outside of major cities... (Antwerp for example could be likely that 1 div from each side is allocated to that area and stagnant for a long time, not providing the intended content and leaving only 1 div to cover the rest of the map)
  3. I have not seen it so I want to separate and establish a thread for the specifics regarding HC's role in 1.36 and future plans for the organization and implementation thereof.
  4. CInC state of the campaign and general message out to all allies via the allied secure forum!
  5. @rotsechs No worry on being cheeky, I believe OKW should have something in the works as well. These events are open to all regardless of what side you normally play and all are invited to participate! You and your tank are always welcome!
  6. THIS IS A COPY FROM ALLIED FORUMS, IT IS BEING REPOSTED HERE SO THOSE WHO DON'T NORMALLY VIEW THEM CAN BE DIRECTED TO THE SIGN UP.. OPERATION POLTERGEIST Allies, The Polls have been tallied and as of know AHC are planning a large Airborne operation for Saturday, Oct 27th, starting at 11am Server time, I have forgone security concerns for the purpose of getting max participation and community involvement. In lieu of this circumstance please remember, the primary objective of this operation is to HAVE FUN, and to maximize the combined arms and teamwork potential this game has to offer! AHC are now selecting several viable targets for this Operation Poltergeist, the final will be announced on Saturday as determined by map status. The operation will require 4 main groups, to be headed by either AHC or volunteers who can be nominated to OIC in game. TASK FORCE PHANTOM, AIRBORNE INFANTRY: The Airborne group will have 2 tasks, dropping near or on the objectives themselves to capture CPS and eliminate enemy resistance, the other is to drop on enemy forward bases to interdict enemy supply and support engineers and commandos from Task Force Specter. -British Para Commander or Commanders, -French/American Commander or Commanders, -Jump masters -Transport Pilots TASK FORCE GHOUL, ARMORED AND INFANTRY COLUMN: Task Force Ghouls objective is to surge forward with armored support and trucks to establish a bridgehead on the objectives and draw away and eliminate enemy forces in support of paratroopers from task force Phantom, they will provide the relieving forces to secure objectives secured or contested. -Armored Commander -Infantry Commander -Support Commander TASK FORCE BANSHEE, AIR SUPPORT: The Objective of Task force Banshee is to escort Allied Transports from Task force Phantom, in addition gain Air Superiority over the battlespace. In addition they will provide CAS support and interdict enemy aircraft at point of origin to secure Allied landings. -Fighter Commander -CAS Commander -Addition Transport Commander/Liaison with Task Force Phantom TASK FORCE SPECTER, COMMANDO, ENGINEERS: The objective of Task Force Specter is to Sap enemy forward bases and interdict enemy supply by whatever means possible, operating behind enemy lines in support of the operation as a whole. -Commando... Commander The operation as a whole, will try to be simplified as best as possible to accommodate battlefield circumstances. The operational concept is a simple one. Air will move out to secure and interdict, Task Force Specter will move out Early to begin their tasks. Next the Ground Column and the Paras will begin their 1,2 thrust towards the objectives. I am hoping for at least 2 major objectives to be hit and flexed on as to sow absolute chaos and ensure the max amount of fun across the map. I look forward to being there on Saturday and participating with you all. For additional communications before the operation please use allied secure forums or allied forums if you do not have access. On D-Day, communications will be via Allied discord. Salute, and Good Luck Allies!!! -Hateract, CinC, Allied Forces
  7. Allies, Given the success of last weeks streaming event, AHC has been asked to organize and launch another event/operation led this time by we the players, to start this process I would like to poll what kind of operation we would like to participate in. Then we can get organized and make it happen in the weeks to come. Much thanks for your input and if there are other options you would like to explore, please feel free to comment! -Hateract, CinC, Allied Forces
  8. Separate or create a separate space for griping/complaining, negativity and watch it closely. Fact of the matter is, we are participants in an ever-changing online world. Complaints and negativity ate attributes to human nature, and cannot be eliminated. They can however, be isolated and steered towards some form of constructivity give basic ground rules. Players and people will always need a place to let of steam and gripe. One of the amazing factors with ww2ol is how emotionally invested players get, it's the tell tale sign of a solid world. But with that emotional investment means positive, and as I said negative. A healthy space to vent these frustrations and feelings when they come would be a good start, that way they do not leak into forum threads where the goal is to improve. I do not have the least bit of idea of how we can implement this, but I feel it would certainly help. We all have our moments of frustration, often times we just need to clean the air and drive on, how can we implement that? If we have it, I think we will see much of the negativity dissappear from standard forums.
  9. @ltibbs boom, you are posted in orbat as commander 106r as a reserve officer, thank you for helping out. Please PM me if you would like slack access.
  10. All, With tomorrows tank event on the horizon, I have created an intro to tanks slideshow for all to look at. If you are feeling adventurous and care not for the full thing, at least don't leave home without this!

BLUNGUT Cross of Great Britain His Citation Reads, During the defense of Essen, the Axis were using multiple bridges to get armor and resupply to feed their attack.

  13. Really tired right now after the slug fest in Essen. Just wanted to say a huge cap for the allies and an epic battle for the recap tonight. To all who participated, on both sides.
  14. Attention to Orders, In an effort to recognize players combined effort throughout the week, to further the Allied cause through resilience, discipline and teamwork. Todays citations recognize players for accumulative actions and efforts to further the allied cause. This last week saw the continuation of Campaign 155 and a myriad of back and forth battles across the map, slowly and steadily our forces march East! For their achievements on the battlefield, the following players are herby awarded. ALEXBELT Allied Officer of the Week MENEERKOER Allied Player of the Week LANCERS Allied Squad of the Week Without the efforts of these individuals and their day to day dedication and teamwork, the Allied Forces would not be where they are today, knocking on Germany's doorstep!

DHAMONT Army Gallantry His Citation Reads...

Though the town was lost, the gains that were made due to the dedication of these players were a key factor in the Allied efforts to liberate Europe from Axis tyranny.
