      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. I love to run four accounts (with all similar names to Zach) at once during TZ3, defending every depot in a small town... the rage is always wonderful
  2. True statement. Plus 18 hour resupply timers, ain't happening.
  3. How about a repost of the patch notes since we can't access front page?
  4. Bump - Zach's joined the crew
  5. Not sure, When a new player joins the game for the first time (without a Host Squad in rotation) they are given a screen that asks them to select between 3 squads whose recruitment flags are on, showing their recruitment message and etc. When a Host Squad is in rotation however, it wont give the new player the option of a squad, instead it will place them directly into the Host Squad in rotation.
  6. Hey, that's good **** man. I assume Host Squad is still active given your post, looks like you have a good understanding of what I had originally intended for Host Squad Reps, keep up the good work
  7. BUMP... I'd really like to start seeing some replies in this forum Host Squads.
  8. Subscribing to the Host Squad Forum is beneficial in that you will receive email updates each time that there is a new post in our forum. I strongly recommend this as it is a good place to start increasing Host Squad forum activity. To subscribe to the Host Squad Forum, see the image below. Note: What you see will look a bit different than mine.
  9. SALUTE Host Squads, July was an excellent month for the Host Squad Program. I believe that it was our first full month of weekly rotation with our current roster, which means that each Host Squad has now experienced the sometimes chaotic yet incredibly beneficial rotation as Host Squad. There are a few topics that I'd like to stress in this newsletter... (1): Recruitment This is a big one folks. In the Host Squad Program, our biggest issue is and will always be recruiting more Host Squads. The more squads that we have in our program, the more time that your squad is off of rotation. The best means of recruitment are in-game and YOU are our best resources for getting the word out about our program. If you know anybody that is in a squad aside from your own, speak to them about becoming a member of the Host Squad Program! (2) Starter Accounts Below is a description of the recently acquired Starter Account subscription type. This new subscription type is basically a modified version of the basic account type, only a lot better at giving new players a taste of what the game looks like. If possible, explain this to new FTP players in your squad that want to try more but don't want to subscribe fully yet! (3) The Host Squad Forum As expressed in the previous newsletter, I want to ensure that The Host Squad Forum is being used as a home for our Host Squad trainers! This forum is my best means of discussion with our Host Squads, and if you have ANY suggestions as to how we could potentially make the program better for our squads, start a discussion in our forum! I will consider each suggestion / idea that is given to me. If you have ANY comments / questions / concerns about the topics listed above or about the Host Squad Program, I am available via email at ZACH@Playnet.com. Keep up the great work soldiers! Regards,
  10. Thank you very much for the AAR Xo, I will look into it and see if there is anything else we can change to perhaps increase the retention rate of those new players.
  11. We have recently changed the 'essential links' list that is sent to new players when they first create their account... From now on, you should be directing new players to the following resources. [1] New Player Survival Guide in their sign up email [2] The 'Help' Channel Regards,
  12. BUMP Still looking for Host Squads! The more squads we have on board, the easier the job gets for current / incoming Host Squads!
  13. UPDATED (8/5) Please let me know if this schedule will not work for your squad, I will do my best to rearrange. S!
