      New Community Volunteer Opportunity   04/29/2017

      With the looming Steam release, we are anticipating many new players to the game. This is great for all of us, and it's important that we retain as many as we can. With that in mind, we'd like to enlist players to help with the inevitable questions asked in the forums. Ideally, gameplay questions are asked and answered in-game, but it's not always easy or convenient to answer questions while playing. A Gameplay Support Forum would be a good place for those who want to help. We are now accepting volunteers for the Rat Patrol, who will provide correct and consistent info to new players in the Forums. The more new players we retain, the better it is for the game and the biggest hurdle in player retention is grasping the complexities of this game. If you are interested, send me a PM.

      Squad Leaders Contact GVONPAUL OR Dodger for Squad Forums   05/18/2017

      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.

DDay

8 posts in this topic

I'd love to see a real D Day type situation including Normandy area. The allies have the objective of getting to Paris while the Axis are trying to stop the invasion and/or Repel any invasions that succeed. It'd be cool to see that as a mini campaign or as a fun little week long intermission event to try and get some guys back to the game. I can understand if it would be too hard/time consuming to make the towns from the Norman Beaches to Paris.

I like this idea because I would love to have an intermission to see if the channel can be crossed. Whatever side is picked to invade the other would have more brigades, a navy and air support. The side being invaded would have no navy and a limited number of fighters but no bombers. This would get the freighters across.

The division numbers would have to be tinkered with, but the defending army would have less. I think this would make a great intermission.

The idea is good but when the allies invaded the germans didn't know where or when it was going to happen. How about HC choose where to invade So that they can surprise them.

Also take away the symbols of the troops and tanks so  that they have to use recon aircraft which will show enemy action for that time but only the HC will see it.

We've done events before and they are generally pretty fun.......we did a Battle of Britain years ago if memory serves, also a channel dash. You have to sign up for it and you only get one life so no re spawning.

This is a fantastic idea birdman26. Whether it is a Operation Sea Lion, Dunkerque, Overlord, Battle of the Bulge, or even recreating the blitzkrieg of Armor on the Maginot Line, I feel it would be much more engaging than what intermission seems to be anymore. If I remember right, this was what happened between maps when I left around 11 years ago and it seemed to have more participants willing to propitiate the game rather than just fulfill virtual blood lusts without trying to get a fight going as was the case yesterday when I was on. This seems like it would work better now as maps aren't won and fought so quickly.

I agree.....not enough players that would sign up for it now. Steam, anyone?
