      Seeking Squad Leaders!   04/09/2017


      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.

A few things that seem to be missing from Discord

1 post in this topic

As someone from an IT background, I'm a perhaps a bit more fussy than others but here is my list of issues/missing features compared to TS.

1. Keyboard shortcuts/bindings are very limited. This is my main annoyance. There is no way to adjust the overall game volume, either up/down by a %. In situations when I'm guarding a CP, I need to listen for footsteps. Turning the TS/discord volume down is mandatory for this, I still need to hear them in case they shout out warnings, I just need them to be quieter. The opposite is true too, if I'm taking a half track, it's practically impossible to hear what anyone is saying on TS/Discord. Being able to increase the overall volume on TS/Discord is a way to get around this. Also, why is the halftrack so frickin loud?

2. If you are AFK, it will move you automatically into the AFK channel but it won't move you back once you're back from AFK. There was an popup briefly but I was in a hurry and I didn't get to read it properly. I think it just said something like "when you're afk, you get moved to the AFK channel automatically". I don't see any option to turn this off?

3. There is no option to join your squad channel by default, this was something you could set in TS. Not a biggy but just a missing feature.
