      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.

Talk About WWIIOL On Other Websites!!!

10 posts in this topic

 

I just passed a note to Dagger (Marketing Team) the other day, about getting us back on COMBATSIM.com.  For those who don't know, COMBATSIM is a website dedicated to mil-sim (military simulation) games.  The last information they had about WWIIOL was six years old.  Dagger will hopefully be getting all our latest news and some videos to their webmaster, so they can create readout link on their homepage.  I started a thread in their forum as well.  It would help if anyone who goes to COMBATSIM.com could sign in and post something in the thread, so we can show some activity and generate interest.  I also have a thread on the Star Citizen "Other Games" forum.  If you're a member there, you can follow this link.

 

>LINK<

 

If anyone has any other suggestions as to websites, please post them here.  If you post to one of the threads mentioned on here, let everyone know.

 

Activity = Interest

 

The more interest we can generate, the more new players we can bring in.

 

 

 

Thanks!

MOAR!!!

 

Come on, folks.  Hit those other websites and post on here!  It takes just a few minutes of your time on sites you're already reading anyway.

myself and enigma have maintained several ww2online threads on somethingawful over the years - I'm planning another one prior to the steam release.

Think I've got a handle on all the recent/new stuff but what would be really useful is if CRS could outline the new supply mechanics in a concise nugget as I haven't been able to find that anywhere.

Well, I found another site which hasn't had any WWIIOL love in a LONG time.

 

http://www.ww2f.com/

 

This site has a DEDICATED WWIIOL forum.

 

http://www.ww2f.com/forums/wwii-online.101/

 

Despite this, the last post on there was from almost three years ago.  Even that was only one guy asking a question and he received no responses.  SO, I posted a tiny, little, insignificant thread designed to get their attention.  :)

 

http://www.ww2f.com/threads/attention-to-orders-all-personnel-report-immediately.68178/

 

Get on that site and contribute to that thread.  In fact, contribute to the whole site.  It's dedicated to all types of discussion about WWII.  Let them see we're still alive over here and maybe give and get some information at the same time!

I need some backup here!  I can't be the only one doing this.

 

I just posted an update on WorldWarIIForums (ww2f.com), in this thread.    ---> LINK <---    I also hit CombatSim (combatsim.com) again, here.    ---> LINK <---

 

AND, I found another site, WW2AIRCRAFT.NET.  They hadn't had any WWIIOL activity in their forum in THREE YEARS.  I changed that, here.  ---> LINK <---

 

Follow me to those sites and add comments!  Show those guys this is a game worth their time, effort, AND MONEY.  ;)  I can't do this alone (but I keep trying).

 

 

 

S!

BY THE WAY...

 

Since the Rats are offering the month of May as a free month of Premium for all FtP accounts, I posted on the three sites above that, if folks sign up for their account on the 16th, they will get their two week Premium "free trial" followed immediately by the free month of May, giving them over six weeks of free Premium time to start off their WWIIOL careers.  Hopefully, we can get some action going on this Sunday, so any new players will be greeted by an active map and some intense fighting.
