      Need help for incoming players.   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.

Question about multi-crewed tanks

3 posts in this topic

Greetings!

As the title says I have an inquiry on the option to be able to crew a fielded tank. A friend and I have attempted this on the training server but I don't show up on his joining list when I'm already on a tank just waiting. Am I missing something obvious or can it not be done in the training server (which would be odd)?

You have to request to join, he has to accept your request. Once that happens his name will pop up up in your view for you to select him as your commander(or vice versa) then your name will pop up in his window and he selects you as his crew, he then hits enter and you both spawn in.

multicrewing is a very fun aspect of this game, on the good side let's say you get 5 kills together total, your score would be five kills each. You each get credit for killing the same guy. On the con side, takes forever to rank up.

last note and this is key. Whoever is commander HAS TO DESPAWN FIRST! If your the driver (tank) or tail gunner (plane) let the pilot/commander despawn or you will NOT get credit for any kills. 

Lesson endeth.....
