This has to be some kind of record, right? Only FOUR YEARS after launch the first expansion shows up?
Yea to recall an earlier thread, they really milk ya...
I have only TWO complaints about WW2 online. The graphics are dated, but that never bothered me, because they were "good enough" and the gameplay was fantastic...
1. At the start of a campaign they don't lock sides, so each player is able to play either Allied or Axis at any given time. There was a huge numbers advantage of Axis players, many times 4 to 1. In the middle of a campaign you'd have this huge exodus of Allied players switching to Axis and steamrolling the map. Its something that you don't realize when you sign up to play, only after a few weeks in the middle of a campaign do you realize what happens. I immediately unsubscribed after I found this out.
2. The graphics are scalable and its possible to scale down your graphics to display the bare minimum of foliage. A player who has his graphics on HIGH thinks he is hiding in foliage, when in reality he appears completely in the open
to a player who has scaled his graphics back to low.
If you decide to play the trial YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST get in a squad and get on some type of voice chat with other players. If you do not do those two things you will die constantly, become frustrated and hate the game. My first week I nearly un-installed a half dozen times until I squaded up and got on Teamspeak. I had a great time until I found out about the above two niggles. Dealing with the numbers imbalance and team switching in the middle of a campaign was total BS.This comment was edited on Aug 25, 18:08.
