      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.

Annoying Minor UI features

7 posts in this topic

If you want to make the user experience better, here are some small UI fixes to make the game better.  

1.  Keep the order of the units in the spawns lists fixed in the UI.  They change based on something (I don't know what) and I am always hunting around of the unit I want.  If they always appeared in the same order it would be easier and quicker to spawn.

2.  On the UI, place the FMS 'checkbox' somewhere that is more obvious.  I don't know how many times I have spawned into a MS/FMS when I wanted to spawn into the AB/CP instead.  Annoying.

3.  On the UI, place the mission orders on the first page so they are easy to find/read.  I played this game for 13 years and just found out they can be read before spawning in, lol.

I agree , maybe a pop up window that says would you like to spawn at FMS. 

Or once it's  unchecked it stays unchecked so you don't always have to rinse and repeat.  Sometimes those are valuable seconds lost when u get killed want to respawn and bamm you land at the FMS instead the CP or AB

Agree with all.

I particular the mission orders are -not- being read. I think they also show in the chat but apparantly noone sees them (and its not necessarily a case of "i dont care")
