Joined for the first time with my old acount as "vonapo" around 2006/2007  - I don't have the login information and the mail account anymore so I can't look up the exact dates. Played both sides, mostly allies, without a squad and left soon after that.

Then I came back and joined the 91st. No regrets yet.

Joined in early 2009 to the 1st Spanish Company - 1SC.    Do you remember it?

Back in that day the spanish community was VERY important. Huge numbers and huge epic fights against the 250h. But I enlisted when the squad was in a disband process due to the main leaders stoping playing the game a year earlier. But some of their trainers taught me the basics and I am what I am today in well part thanks to 1SC. Such a good unit that they just let it die... Shame. :-(

Then 22SAS was created and was all my life in WWIIOL. We managed to were a really decent medium size spanish-speaking squad, mixing old 1SC vets with new guys. So good old memories. But good things, again, seems to be so tough to mantain. :-(

I tried to play very briefly in 2014, and didn't like it that much. Tried again with this account in late May of 2016 and got hooked. Joined the ANZACs a couple months later, where I still am.

October 2001. I honestly do not remember the name of the squad I joined way back then. Bounced around a lot as a loner. Joined the 101st Airborne in 2012.

I believe I started playing this game in August 2001, a couple of months after the game's inception. I joined Allied Strike Team in the spring of 2002, which is now combined into 7th AST.

When I joined up in 1999, I played with a few guys in SST4: Sonderstrumtruppe Four: Greowulf. It was headed up by a DENTIST... His game name? PAINLESS.

I  played with BilboTN, MG42Doc, and Stonney. The gme was totally different back then; we coordinated regularly with other squads and managed offensives that raged for days. Truly amazing stuff... seeing a column of tanks 30 strong roling along, being pestered by enemy aircraft... and then being ambushed along the way. News traveled fast then. We got chit done!

Of course, when the game went "live", it crashed repeatedly and after a couple of months I was able to get back in and play... but it was still much more fun than trying to move flags around and have CRS micro manage campaigns. 

There were a LOT of players on back then and in 2005, even MORE showed up to play regularly. When that happened, I was with the 21st, based out of Brouwershaven. Whenever the fight was there, we all went immediately to defend our home-turf!


The game is an empty shell now. Sad to see it lingering on life-support, and hardly worth playing now.
