Started playing in Fall of 2008, original gamertag was freeland.

Played off and on throughout the years with a few months between. Spent some time in the Axis HC as an infantry and then FJ officer.

Last I played was in September of 2013. I've been running with Windhund for quite some time now. Axis for life.

I started playing in 2003 I think, I played on and off until 2012.

I spent quite a bit of time trying to tame the monkeys in OT (to no avail) however when I was on the battlefield I was usually playing as Axis for the good ol' 31st Wrecking Crew (at least I think that's what we were called, it has been a while). I have spent the last few years playing Planetside 2 on the Connery server as VS.

Oh and I am the only man to have killed Bilton.

S! all, first time I played was Sep 19 2006, can't remember the last time I played. Joined BTZ with RM and a few others in the very early days of the squad. I think I did try the "DARK SIDE" once but never went back. Always Allied. S!

Evening...

Kilo33 here.

I started playing in September, 2001, with a one year pause and I believe my current sub start date is in 2004. I played fairly religiously through 2009, then sporadically through 2012. This is my first time back since then. In the day, I have been a member of both HQ's, and have belonged to Windhund (my first squad), and when I was playing allied, Escadrille Le'Chat Noir until Lafayette formed, then Easy Company, then back to Lafayette.

I am seriously considering returning, just depends on how much it has changed, how involved the HQ's are, and whether there are any old faces I can reconnect with, or a new solid squad that I can join as I suspect there is no-one left from the old days. Well, except Xoom...oh, and Bragg... hrmmm... who else is floating around here?

Regards,

Kilo33

1999 0r 2000...way more than a year before the pay to play started or campaigns. No bushs..no trees. mariemburg was where i was born in game as it was the farthest town to the east at the time. I think profondeville was the farthest town north. No army bases..only one radio with no cap timer. Just touch it and town was capped.

I rode in my uber-char and had over 50,000 kills in it. it was uber and OP.

Played till...uh...maybe...2009 or 2010. Jumped back in on a few elcome back soldier and have always enjoyed my time back in game.

Best mmo war game ever

was in squads 1st allied special forces group 1ASFG...then for many years Lafayette LAF

Hah... FLYING 38t's.... :) those were the days... the early days, when straying off the road would drop you into the abyss even though it looked flat, when you never new when a fairmille would steam by... in the grass... sigh. Oh... and I remember my time in Lafayette as well...

Booo! (speaking of, is Bloo still around?)..

I see GvonPaul's still active! yay!

Xoom's head rat? weren't you like 15? lol. that's so awesome!

15 fricking years. I log in and there's still new pm's about keymaps in my inbox, lol. hell, are my keymaps even still relevant? hehe.

currently downloading the game. I've stuck my head in now and again over the years since I actually started having a real life again but it's been a few years at least...

Happy to see that this still exists.. who'da thunk it after day 1? I was mad at first but then the rats stuck around and actually kept working on it.. so I stuck by them.. and this was a surrogate family for me for many years that I can never express the words for how greatful I am and was for them.

I don't remember the year but I played starting with 1.13.

Used to write articles for a website and drove a lot of traffic towards the game.

Last time I played... I dunno, gave it a shot a while ago for campaign 100 but flying was pointless with a small player base.

Primarily Axis but I like to switch it up.

Really happy there's a new dev team going.

What year did you start playing?

2001

When was the last time you played?

About a year-and-a-half ago.

What squad were you in?

My first squad was the Razorbacks. We transitioned and were absorbed into AST (Allied Strike Team)

What side did you primarily play on?

Allies.

Been around forever. That Texas Truce avatar over there on the left? I designed it.

I designed the T-Shirts for both of the cons. The first con ('05) was for the "BEYOND BLITZKRIEG" retail re-release which subsequently had to change names as the name was "taken". This is why we have Battleground Europe.

I have an unworn t-shirt from that event still.

Shortly thereafter, a WWIIOL-themed online poker game (Battleground Poker) was given (gratis) to the community so players could have another place to get together online.

Also around that time I was asked to Create a launch site for the retail re-release.

Check this out: (turn up your volume) http://www.webmunki.com/battlegrounddemo/battlegroundpromo.html

The Texas Truce was the second con (I couldn't make it to that one) but I got tapped to design the shirts again. My company at the time, Prizewagon, was also a corporate sponsor for that event.

Also around that time I was asked to redesign the Battleground Europe website. It still exists to this day though not utilizing the excellently-rendered battle scenes (I paid a 3-D artist I worked with to make them). The scenes transitioned through a 24-hour lighting period and displayed differently based on local time.

...and yes, I STILL have to pay if I want to play.
