  1. 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.
  2. @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.

  4. Attention to Orders, Campaign 155 has ended with the liberation of Europe and a highwater mark of achieving the coveted city of Essen and the surrounding of Dusseldorf, a rare feat and an incredible achievement for all of us. Every player put in amazing effort to see us through to the final battles, and all of you should have full knowledge that each and everyone of contributed to our cause! With all the moments, we create in wwiionline, it is hard to distinguish a few out of everyone to recognize for their achievements on the battlefield. With help from their peers, fellow HC and our records for the campaign, It is my pleasure to put forward a list of those players and squads who throughout the entire war, did continue to go above and beyond in order to further our objectives, and ensure that their comrades got the best experiences there are. Without further hesitation, I present to you the Campaign awards for 155. 7TH AST Allied Squad of the Campaign Their citation reads, The 7TH AST were a crucial factor in many of the critical battles of the campaign. Members of the unit participated in nearly every battle on the road to victory, and were the vital component in maintaining organized attacks and stalwart defenses.

MAJES99 Allied Player of the Campaign His citation reads, Whether it was running FMS, securing depots, running armor, or just providing good conversation in discord, MAJES99 was always a sight that brought relief and renewed vigor to his comrades on the field. He was always willing to help officers in crucial decisions and lead his fellow players in defense and attack, with MAJES99 on the field, Allied Forces could almost always be assured we would see through to the final victory. BOOMSTUK Allied Officer of the Campaign His citation reads, Throughout campaign 155 BOOMSTUK maintained dedicated leadership and initiative, leading Allied troops to sweeping victories and joining them side by side in the field being an instrumental player in captures, FMS running and armor.

Campaign 155 was well fought and earned victory allies, we fought well, we fought together with combined arms and communication. The teamwork and comradery displayed were phenomenal and, and allowed for, the first time in many years, the Axis Jewel of Essen. You proved it could be done and, if we stick with it, we can do it again! As COS, I thank you all for a grand campaign, and I look forward to seeing you in the field for 156! -Hateract, COS, Allied Forces

It took incredible vigilance, teamwork and communication to hold the ABs and CPS. the North Army Base changed hands 4 times, some CPs over ten times. These players led the defense and worked the recapture efforts. Made sure defensive FMS were set and encouraged and organized their fellow players fighting onward to the final liberation of the city and the success of the Allied counter attack on Velbert. 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.

  6. 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.
  7. 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! Often times it is hard to distinguish the valiant and brave efforts of our comrades for every individual action, however as time passes we can see the cumulative effect of their work and diligence to keep pushing East and bringing the Allied cause closer to victory! DHAMONT Army Gallantry His Citation Reads... DHAMONT's efforts in the battle of Grevenmacher did allow the Allies to quickly take the town ensuring the security of Trier and the neighboring allied towns. With a secure line in the south the Allies were able to continue to push into the Axis occupied territories. WILDCAT382 MOBIUS57 Croix de Lorraine Their Citation Reads... During the Allied Advance on the Axis Lines, the Axis did make a concentrated push on the Northern town of Druten. Massively out gunned and out numbered, using only Navy units and distant Army support these two individuals lead and rallied a strong and persistent defense. Because of their efforts and their ability to stall and hold the enemy for longer than anyone could've imagined, the Allies were able to capture several key towns while the Druten defenders held on with their fingernails. 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. Keep up the solid work and lets keep moving East. As always, please step up to make sure your fellow players can be recognized for their actions, anyone can submit a citation. For those of you awarded today, my personal thanks, and a thank you from those of in AHC. -Hateract, COS, Allied Forces
  8. @Zebbeee That's a good idea that is flowing. I personally like the idea but would need some tweaks for sure, as per request here are some things I see. -No AO limits.... bad idea, heavily favors a steam role by an overpop side. I would say cap the AO's as we have now based on the population of the smallest populated size. (of course this could be infinite, AS LONG as I said, the low pop side is taken into consideration. -Remember to consider bridge AO/DO's, I'd like to see those go away and just maintain a state of destroyed/standing. Right now its an often forgot objective that is often left to the last minute. Would help organic "commando" raids being able to go behind the lines and blow a vital bridge organically before a planned assault. -As an Active and wholly invested HC member, I have no qualms about having organic leadership from squads and allowing them to take the field, just remember many of our officers are or would like that roll as well. -I would also recommend a hybrid system within your AO system of ideas. And that is to up the minimum level of AO's to two. The first or multiple being the player based AO plan you speak of, and HC having x1 AO that they are still able to place. This would help to rectify any disagreements between HC/larger squads/smaller squads. As a major squads have the freedom to work organically, and smaller squads/individuals can still request AO's. This also circumvents another major problem... hopefully to be later rectified by bigger pop, but still a concern nonetheless. Many times its seen that one side is very low pop, or is suddenly driven to full "turtle" or defense mode, often times that side does not have enough to shift players to set the full EWS off for a sustained period. By allowing x1 HC placed AO, the defending side still has a viable means in which to counter attack using the AO system, even if they don't have enough to start full EWS, this also allows for more commando/ninja style tactics that I have seen nugitx comment on, but still limits the "steam role" -Furthermore, the organic or player AO "OIC" should have the power to move a local flag from his mission by the length of x1 town. This has been a huge problem in the past with flags, either due to the lack of HC or some sort of disagreement. I would argue that the movement of 1 flag over 1 town is not game breaking in anyway, and allows local leaders to defend or exploit their gains. -Lastly, a question, currently an OIC is nominated by high command, in order to best create an organic squad/player driven attack, what should we do to make sure that the OIC can be nominated via players squads, without the need of HC? Thanks for the post, lets see what other ideas float out!
  9. Attention to orders, The day of 8/20/2018 has been host to some bitter and brutal combat between the Axis and Allies across the front. With the help of commanders and their fellow soldiers, the following soldiers have been recognized as going above and beyond the call of duty in the battles of Luxembourg, Druten, and Gevenmacher. ALEXBELT JACARANDA Army Gallantry Their citation reads, In the early hours of 8/20/2018 the allies found themselves in a heated battle over the key city of Luxembourg. ALEXBELT and JACARANDA did distinguish themselves by continuing to lead their peers and spearhead the assaults on enemy strongpoints, aiding in the liberation of the city.

For their outstanding leadership on the field, they have been awarded. DHAMONT Army Gallantry After the battle of Luxembourg Allied forces pushed onward towards Germany by attacking the Riverside town of Gervenmacher. During this attack DHAMONT distinguished himself by first capturing the first Allied spawnable of the battle, Not satisfied with this achievement, he did go on to participate in the capture of the second Allied spawnable, before then assisting in the capture of the Army Base allowing for the liberation of the town. WILDCAT382 MOBIUS57 Distinguished Service Cross In conjunction with, Defense Ribbon Their citation reads, During the prolonged and desperate defense of the Northern town of Druten, two players in their actions did stand apart. No matter how lopsided the supply or desperate the situation theses players led the fight to hold back the Axis hordes and maintain the defense. Though the city did fall, the combat went far above and beyond what any Axis officer may have expected and did cause considerable damage upon the enemy, thus negating his ability to further advance. In recognition for the courage and steadfast defense, their leadership and loyalty, let them be recognized for their actions today. For all players service today, much thanks, keep driving East and keep sending those recommendations! -Hateract, COS, Allied Forces

  11. Attention to orders, The following players are being awarded for their participation in the decisive Allied Air Campaign over Europe, the RDP bombing of enemy factories and the interception of enemy bombers has proved to create a substantial difference for our troops on the ground, allowing our forces to continue to push ever east in an effort to liberate the land from Axis tyranny. JAYPEE LAPSI1 MENEEKEER CRONICG RDP Bombing Ribbon RAPTOR34 HELIDUDE22 SETHORION Fighter Escort Ribbon Our thanks to these pilots keeping up the relentless air attack on the Axis and defending our homelands from any incursion. Keep those bombers and fighters rolling Allies and help make the difference on the ground by denying the enemy the supply used to kill our comrades! -Hateract, COS, Allied Forces
  12. The metaphor between checkers and chess is rubbish. RDP IS NOT A MINI GAME. Right now it is a hybrid between strat bombing and interdiction bombing. It is wholly relevant. WW2OL is A WAR SIMULATION. This meaning that its all inclusive for all realms of warfare including bombing. Its not a matter of separating a checkers game from chess, its a matter of a certain some one doesn't like the rules of chess bc he is lazy, therefore we must change the rules of chess and dumb it down for him till he has checkers. NO NO NO NO NO. Over a variety of threads it has been the same, players working together to improve and tweak the air game, whining to remove it entirely is pointless and counter productive… Lets not feed this troll any longer.
