  1. Great news! Welcome back!
  2. That's great, welcome back!!
  3. I'd be in for a hero builder account in the next few months once I get through my wedding! Maybe the Rats already do this, but it would be cool to see exactly where funds are being allocated as hero builder accounts are mini-investors in a way.
  4. Good luck and have a little fun at training! This game and community will be here for you when you get back.
  5. The problem I see with introducing the Eastern Front is that it would split the player base as you'd have to separate battle lines occurring simultaneously, unless I'm misunderstanding. Perhaps bringing the game to more European gaming markets (Russia) would help this issue.
  6. I think that's a great idea...targeting WWII enthusiasts. This is in Pennsylvania? How about posting ads in WW2 magazines and other publications?
  7. Glad to be a part of the squad now! Thanks for having me!
  8. Hello, I'm returning to the game from a long time out - 13 years maybe?? Looking for a solid Allied group to join where I can play infantry and get some flying in...and hopefully learn a few things about flying, as well! It would be nice to be the one shooting an EA down for once... any recommendations? Thanks, Hockyguy
  9. I think getting the subreddit going with more users and more discussion topics would be a great idea, david01. And also target other subreddits (r/pcgaming, r/gaming, r/mmo, etc) with posts and get as many people as possible to keep the discussion going in a specific thread with AARs, videos and immersive battle stories. Speaking from experience, old players may be looking for new information about the game outside of the ww2ol website...and reddit is the next place I stopped. How about targeted marketing campaigns to folks we think are the most likely to be interested in the game? Reenactor groups and forums: http://www.worldwartwohrs.org/, http://ww2reenactors.proboards.com/ , etc..... WW2 aviation, tank and infantry forums: https://ww2aircraft.net/forum/ , etc...Other ww2-themed games, not just online but single-player game forums. I think this game speaks to a player demographic that might be slightly older than average, focused on simulation and historical accuracy and not instant gratification...but you all know this already. There is no other game that compares to WW2ol and the possibility of getting more players into the battle is exciting...I can't begin to image how a major battle from the early days would play out now!!
  10. Hey everyone, I am a returning player (it has been a long while!) and I'm trying to get into the game. I am having an issue with loading into the actual game world. My current machine is a dell hp xps (2011) laptop. I'm fairly confident the computer meets system requirements. I am able to sign on and select persona, mission, unit. I click to enter the game world and the loading screen appears. After several seconds, the game closes and sends me back to the desktop. I've adjusted the game settings to 'best performance', but still having the same issue. Any ideas? Thanks!
  11. JPHartt!! Whats up man! Thanks Xoom...And sorella...I'm a hurricanes fan. Unfortunately we couldnt win last night with carey price out!
  12. That worked and I'm in! thanks guys!
