      Seeking Squad Leaders!   04/09/2017

      Soldiers!

      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. It means it is not encrypted, it is lacking a SSL certificate. @GVONPAUL, @Dodger not sure if this has been discussed before bb
  2. The clones are being triggered by the spacebar. You probably got a primary or secondary keybind to the spacebar as your trigger. I cannot check right now but I think you can not bind the creation of clones to another key but the spacebar. bb
  3. FYI - this site has been down as well: https://stats.wwiionline.com/squadachievements.php bb
  4. Could you check the JU52 as well? I do believe it shows similar behaviour. Usually you roll on the AF to gather the paras. Even with engines off and brakes on, it will start rotating slowly after a short period of time. bb
  5. I'm a service manager in RL and that's usually how you deal with downtimes: There's a difference between planned and unplanned downtimes. Unplanned downtimes are errors which result in unavailability of a certain or even all services. Such downtimes influence the availability calculation per month/quarter. Planned downtimes are scheduled and announced maintenance windows and changes. A standard change in our case is for example the reboot of the servers on Mondays and Fridays. For the purpose of calculating the actual uptime and availability, the scheduled uptime and downtime do not include any period of downtime that is the result of scheduled time required to perform system maintenance (for example, preventive maintenance, system upgrades, etc.) The availability is usually calculated as follows: ((given period - sum(unplanned downtime))/given period)*100% Having said that an availability of 98.5% (for example) leads to 10.8 clock hours of [unplanned] downtime based on a 30-day month. However, back to WW2OL, there is no availability agreement in our subscriptions. bb
  6. Nope, not really. But look out for Blitzkader. You will find quite a lot of ex 1775th in there. @fsjr02will take care of you bb
  7. type ".graduate true" if you are stuck in training. It will complete the training bb
  8. Great job Para! Really nicely done! bb
  9. Yeah same, I assume you cannot move the overlay in game and use the additional in game functionality while the game is not officially supported by discord. That's the reason why there are whitelisted games. So you won't have any working in game functions of Discord either (its not clickable). I only did this once as it worked right away when I did it: In order to move it, hit the key stroke to toggle overlay when in game. Alt tab to Desktop, you still should see the overlay menu. Now you can move it around. Alt tab back to the game to see if the position is to your liking. If not alt tab again. When finished hit the key stroke to toggle overlay again. In regards to the transparent logo, I saw that there was already a request by the discord community. Unclear if it is on the roadmap or not. Subchannels [or something with a similar function] though is on the roadmap for 2017. Unclear when 2017 though from what I could find. bb
  10. Currently both channels are there. I adjusted your permissions as well bb
  11. It's created. Enjoy bb
  12. From what I've seen last weekend, the move to Discord was a pure success. Until late EU hours I've seen roughly 140-180 people online on discord. It doesn't necessarily mean they as well were playing at the same time but this is potentially 100 users and more than you could address on teamspeak at the same time. Yesterday, by accident - when working permissions, I noticed that there were over 300 user accounts on the allied server alone already. I even saw chatter, that guys returned the last weekend after they noted that we moved to Discord. It was the only reason for them to check in. There was one guy who stated that he hasn't been playing in 12 years! And this is the benefit which I see as most important especially as squad CO - stay in touch with your squad mates. Discord makes it really easy. Will it take time to get used to it? No doubts! Will it take time to fully explore Discord's potential? Definitely! You can't teach an old dog new tricks. Yet we should open up to innovation if we do not want to fall behind. And we have fallen behind already witch such a nieche game. Time to open up! bb
  13. RIP Sevenedg, bb
  14. For those who haven't used discord before, I recommend to download the app first before following the invitation link (https://discordapp.com/apps). I had some errors trying to follow the invitation links without the actual app. In your case it looks like you had it already pre-installed. bb
  15. Did you click the activation link in your email? Maybe thats the reason it is not being stored, dunno bb
