Its a sim which will always turn off those who dont have the patience to learn how to properly operate things.

Not to mention those sexless shut-ins with unintelligible accents who are prone to rambling drunken soliloquies. Yea that would go over on Teamspeak real well.

Yea theres plenty of Euros playing, lots in my squad. I played on launch day and here and there for the last 3 years and the game today is very different than it was in 2001. It runs fine if you have average hardware and considering the scale and detail the graphics are quite good. Its a sim which will always turn off those who dont have the patience to learn how to properly operate things. The game has evolved past 1940 to include a variety of equipment, later model spitfires, the fw190, sherman tanks and panzer 4's. Yes players flip flopping sucks, Im not sure if they have made changes to foliage settings.

I wasn't capping a troll so much as sniping a retard.

WWII Online had a large European fan base, so far as I could tell. The Irish were particularly fond of it. Modest gains by North American players were soundly trounced on by AM European players in greater numbers.

Spume's right - who in Europe wants to play a WW2 game? It's a retarded genre.

Jaguart - popping back into a thread that's pretty much over to cap off an argument with a self-confessed drunken troll does not make you cool.

edited to state the obvious.

I still have this game collecting dust somewhere, I'd almost forgotten about it. I think if this game had been more like planetside it would have gotten more press and players. It jsut seems a shame because the concept of a WW2 mmo is really good.

"Battleground here is the rest of the game we promised you Four Fucking Years ago"

That's pretty much it. Sad when you consider that it's taken so fucking long (spare me the small dev team violin solo plz k thx) but yet it's still missing so many other critical elements. The game is basically Guerilla Warfare Online set in the Battle of France with shitty graphics and equally shitty performance.

BattleGround Europe is CRS' way of getting their turd back on the shelves in a vain hope to increase their sub numbers and expand their dev team.

If you've played this game before, but haven't been active in the last year, you won't be able to use your old account:

"All former players who are not currently active and have been active at least once in the last 12 months are eligible."

I don't think I want to go through the trouble of trying to make a playnet account again. I still remember the terrible website inferface. They should also have ditched that playgate stuff. Trying to remember which name to use (playnet name, game name) is always a pain in the butt.

Kukuman:
what's the point of such a short free trial if it takes so long to get acclimated to the game?

Very good point!!!

Yea, um who's the freak? I think you're the one in headgear..shouldn't you get back to your "crafting"?

posted by Awesome Spume....
Yeah, we all thought we'd be flying to work in rocket packs by now.

I play video games. I even played MOH and COD (back before I was crippled with CTS and MS became a strain). I'd be more willing to try out Matrix Online than this.

Here's why. About 60 years ago my relatives fought a war with a bunch of Europeans - now unlike the English, Welsh and Scottish my people had the choice whether to sit it out or enlist. Oddly enough a lot decided to enlist because it was, apparently, the right thing to do. Down south, in Dublin where the IRA (Irish teRrorist Army) came from the government was throwing balls for Hitler and loving the attention. You might want to think about that next time you consider a leprechaun. Irish Pixies = Nazis. Anyway. My Grandpa (grandpop) enlisted in the navy. Technically he was 15 at the time and they where the only ones willing to take him. Long story short he survived and went on to marry Kitty. Now Bill and Kitty's first born was Bill(2), followed by Hugh and John. Bill married my mum who was a Banbridge runaway who cut hair to avoid a life of assisting sheep shagging. Her words. Hugh married Dorothy, who is and was notoriously ambitious. She's probably my favourite relative.

Meanwhile John eventually married Barbara back in the 70s. Barbara already had a son who we embraced as our own wholeheartedly. I like the guy and don't even think of him as family when I'm wondering who to torment next. John died at 48 from alcohol related conditions, long after the divorce. He's my favourite uncle.

So, what's my point? Barbara is German. Paul, her son my cousin, is at least half German. His sister, Karen, is a quarter-German Goth chick. Everything else be damned but I like Goth Chicks. Karen's fiance died from a heart defect about 4 years ago but she's built like a brick shithouse. I don't mean fat I mean evil-sturdy. When her guy died I couldn't belive the way this strong woman just collapsed (to date I have not had any major emotional attachments to anyone or anything, so what do I know) but when she'd done grieving she told us all what she wanted us to do. My family is nothing if not resilient. Lately Karen has been seeing a Canadian guy who came here to go to University but who stayed to work for the Alliance party. She has a baby with the other guy (I don't remember his name) but his family didn't want to know. I wish her the best of luck and for a cousin she's still a pretty hot chick.

Or to put it another way. I have no interest in your "world war". We've moved on and your attempts to liken this to a police action in the Middle East is a Waste Of Time

There's Teamspeak protocol and in-game lingo and jargon to learn.

What stands for "Fuck Off You Freak?"

FOYF? I've been typing that but I can still see your posts.


EDIT: no offense, dude. I know you people have "special games" needs. More power to you bucko.

I can tell you that if you play WWII Online, you'll have a lot more interesting gameplay stories than Awesome Spume's Defective Genealogy Simulator.
