      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.

Questions about F2P Update.

3 posts in this topic

I'm glad to see that the game is preparing to enter steam, truly a milestone! However, I have questions regarding the F2P update.

1. F2P accounts are referred to in here a few times as "Rifleman Only" accounts, does that mean that the basic SMG, (like the Mp34, which I remember being able to use despite being F2P) are going to be made unavailable to F2P accounts? Will this also apply to the Infantry vehicles, such as AA?

2. There's some reference to a 1 month premium for those already F2P, which I think is a great addition, however, it also says once it's up, you'll revert to the "Rifleman Only" account again, I was wondering, does that mean we lose all progress in ranks, specifically the ones you can only get while premium? If this is the case, I was wondering if F2P accounts could keep the ranks and equipment they earned, it'll encourage them to play more, might even bring back some F2P players who got bored of the standard equipment.

1. Just guessing here, but I think all F2P accounts will be elevated to premium status for one month, which means any rank you earn will unlock new equipment during that month (no restrictions other than rank needed).

 

2.  In the past, my F2P account was able to gain rank during the promotion, but as soon as the promo ends, your equipment access is reverted to standard F2P.  It seems that I was able to keep the rank points I gained though, meaning if I decided to make that account premium, I think it might have picked up my rank where I left off?  Not 100% sure about that either.

I am hoping that F2P will adopt the same principals as other F2P games in that Prem accts will revert to F2P once sub has expired and limitations be applied accordingly...This is my only real issue with F2P atm, I had to make a new acct to see how the game is coming along without subbing for a month since main acct is locked out having been prior prem status. Maybe the 1 month of premium is a public test to see if the acct successfully reverts back once premium status is finished, as of now I've heard only what the wiki says in that its "not possible" to revert from premium to f2p and keep ranks/stats...not sure why.
