91ST STURMBATTALION
 Subject: July 2019 Jul 12, 2019 -- 23:38 (GMT) 
Welcome to the Newest WWII Online Volunteers:
Three veteran players have answered the call and are stepping up to fill important roles in the operation of the game.

IMBRUTUS: Joins as a CRS volunteer but before this she was instrumental in formation of the High Command Joint Training Command. Imbrutus revised the recruit officer training program and training materials and has led a staff of HC trainers from both the Allied and Axis side. In addition to this duty, she has agreed to assume the role of Lead High Command Recruitment Officer. So in addition to training HC applicants she will be actively recruiting new players into both high commands.

Pfmosquito: Joins our WWII Online volunteer team as Lead Game Trainer. He will be responsible for selection, training and administration of our Game Trainers. Players who become "Trainers" have access to a private chat channel and a few select GM tools to help them reach out to players who have questions or appear lost. When your in-game type .TR and you will see if any Trainers are online. Feel free to private message them for questions or use the Help chat channel. IF YOUR INTERESTED in becoming a Game Trainer send a forum email to pfmosquito and he will get back to you.

Catfive: Also joins our WWII Online volunteer team as Lead Forum Moderator. He will be responsible for monitoring the forums and acting on inappropriate posts or posts that violate the Terms of Service.

Thanks for stepping up folks! In this weeks Community News we announce the "exceptional" player so far in Campaign #165. Click the Read on link below to see who it is. We then present to you a soldiers short story on the defense of "any town" WWII Online. And Finally, 18th Anniversary Awards are being sent out! Read the full article below...


This weeks player award for exceptional activity so far in Campaign #165 goes to: GRETNINE

This player scores as Top Killer so far in this campaign with a whopping 668 kills. Over 200 kills more than the next competitor. Gretnine accomplished 668 kills in 242 sorties giving him a 4.54 kill/death ratio.

Add to that, Gretnine holds the top two slots for Top Kills in a Sortie. On June 27th he achieved 54 kills on a single mission with a Somua and later the same the day he wiped out 44 more in a Matilda. Those two sorties hold the number one and two slots! Congrats to Gretnine for outstanding play. As you can see he is his own force to be reckoned with!

A Soldiers Story for the battle of "any town" in WWII Online!

Coms were spotty as the 2 Allied tanks rolled up on the objective—in this case a position along an enemy likely avenue of approach. The veteran tankers were hyper-aware of how much danger they were in. The garrison supplies were getting to a critical point, thus they had moved to the objective in A13s. Being seen would start the clock on being killed. Luckily a couple of friendly Infantry also made the trip. Hopefully they would be effective in calling out targets, and keeping sappers away from the 2 tanks.

‘232 moving west!’ was the first call. 2 shots rang out, (one from each A13), and the 232 exploded. No need to reposition the tanks signaled each other, as there was little chance the 232 had seen us before expiring. ‘PzIII moving west!’ That call came from one of the Infantry. ‘No vis!’ the 2nd tank alerted the 1st. 1 shot rang out, and the PzIII stopped. Now smoking, the 2nd A13 was now able to get a visual, and 2 more shots rang out, resulting in one less PzIII. Still no need to reposition, as again, the enemy tank had died before being able to return fire.

One of the friendly Infantry, a sniper, fired once, dropping an enemy Infantry. Based on the timing, the 2nd A13 decided to move to a secondary firing position. The other A13 decided not to move, as he was far enough out that it was still pretty unlikely that he’d been seen and/or marked.
‘Opel!’ The Opel was dispatched with an HE round from the 1st A13. ‘HT audio!’ was followed quickly with ‘He is towing a pak!’ The first A13 said he’d handle the HT, leaving the Pak for the 2nd A13. Both targets destroyed in short order. Still no need existed to reposition either tank.

‘Infantry coming this way!’ Now the friendly Infantry became very important to the success of the mission. Maybe the Opel had managed to set an FMS before being dispatched. Both enemy Infantry were cut down by the friendly sniper, and a veteran with an SMG. The first A13 reported that ‘the odds are good I’ve been marked/seen now, but my position is good enough where I’m just not going to move’.

Back in the town that was under attack, the last depot was recapped, liberating the town. ‘No ET EWS’ meant that our efforts along the likely avenue of approach were having a positive effect. ‘PzIII south of the west road!’ The first A13 reported having no visual. The second A13 swung his turret to the right, and there the PzIII was, some 500M away, flanking south of the 2nd A13’s position. A shot rang out, and a 2lb AP round hit the enemy tank, tracking it. The 2nd shot put the PzIII’s main gun out of action, and the 3rd blew the turret off.

‘No EWS!’ was quickly followed up with the announcement that the enemy had recalled the attack on the town. ‘We were down to rifles, lol!’ someone in town reported, as the A13s, sniper, and SMG returned to town. A successful mission. - CinC Augetout.

Hybrid Supply - Beta Review by Allied CinC Bondpaul
This past Sunday, was the day that we have long been waiting for. It was the first day of “Closed” Beta Testing of 1.36, and your High Command Officers and Builders were invited to participate in this week long test. If all goes well, meaning that we do not find major issues that can’t be corrected right away, then next week 1.36 will be offered for “Open” Beta Testing, letting you come in to learn the changes that 1.36 offers.

Keep in mind that this is a “Major” change to how we conducted operations before. This is what I have learned so far about 1.36.

Every front line Town will have a garrison. They will be either French or British, and later American. The initial setup for the Campaign will determine which Towns start as which.

Every Town, behind the front-line Town, will also have a garrison. At the Start the Campaign, these Towns will be the same Nationality as the front-line Town they are behind.

High Command will have the option of changing the Towns Nationality, but there will be a supply penalty, supply will drain to zero then trickle in the new supply. About 15 hours from start to finish.

When we take a Town, High Command will be given 15 minutes to decide what Nationality that Town will be, French, British, or later American. If no choice is given, the system will choose the Nationality of the Town by the Nationality of the Force that took it. So, if a French Garrison took the town, and HC
did nothing, the Town will then be French.

When the Nationality has been decided, either by HC or by System, it will take another 10 minutes for supply to start to trickle in.

NOW here is a big thing to remember. Normally when we have taken a Town, we all despawn and move to another battle. Now it is going to take time for supply to come in, so now we have to stay in the Town and defend it until supply come in. Axis could place a counter-AO on it once we have taken the Town, run efms out and start recapping it before supply gets in. So we will have to defend the Towns we take for a bit. So, please do not despawn right away.

We also have our traditional Divisions, two of them, that we can move around to augment supply and use Offensively. The timers that we are use to are still there when moving into front-line towns, so being that we have supply in all the towns already, I would suggest to keep them in secondary towns until we actually need them. This way they can move in 15 min, around back instead of 1 hour moving back and then additional time moving where we need them.

Garrisons can be over-supplied by 100%. However, they have to come from the same Country, i.e. French to French, British to British, American to American. Our Divisions “cannot” be used to over-supply a garrison.

This “closed” beta testing is being used as a learning experience and next week it will be hopefully opened to all of you to learn. Then after a week or two of that we can then start an “Official” Campaign.

Allies, I truly believe that you will enjoy 1.36. It is very easy to learn, as it always has supply and we will have movable supply. We will always have navy, air force, and paras, in those towns that have airports and/or docks.
We all get to use those supplies that we like the best. More Fun for all! Looking forward to seeing you all in 1.36.

Campaign 161 Begins
Campaign 161 started off with a bang as we started in Tier 3 - 1944 equipment. This decision was made by CRS leaders as the Allies have had little playtime with the USA personas, and the new British toys (M10 Achilles and Sherman Firefly Mk IC) since they were introduced. The last two Campaigns have been dominated by the Axis who claimed victory just as the Tier 3 equipment rolled in. Among the excitement for Campaign 161 is the map expansion See the Readme below. Allies have made a dash for the new Holland towns North of the Zeeland area, can the Axis hold their territory? Log in to find out!



Version 1.35.17.0
The 1.35.17.0 patch included MANY terrain bug fixes, adjusted content, and new towns in Paris and Holland. Listed below is the last two sections of the readme, click here to read the full patch release notes.

Adjusted Content

Added Coastal's Armory for the Field Marshall fundraiser

Added additional links from England to the new French towns

21 MARCH 2019

Today we've returned the OPS or Operations channel as our primary way of communicating missions and directing fellow players to battle. Everyone's default F5 channel has been made to OPS. If you prefer to relocate that channel to a different selection, do so, but you'll want to keep that channel tuned going forward. Side channel has been replaced with ORIGIN chat (anyone coming from the same town regardless of mission or target), and may be retuned (if you want), but new players will not have it tuned by default. OPS is intended to be a focused communication channel to aggregate players throughout the game world for missions. Effective today it is now the standard and should always be tuned.
Lots of vital information here as we prepare to get into Closed / Open Beta, and the eventual release of 1.36 (Hybrid Supply). Every player needs to read this, save it, ask questions and prepare for what's coming. This is the low down of all important information and will be updated to answer any important questions that we may have missed. 1.36 Hybrid Supply discussion should take place in the forums (here).

TYPES OF GARRISONS
There are a few different types of Garrisons located across the game world. Towns can only have ONE Garrison owner.

Army Garrison
Located across the entire frontline
Located one town adjacent to the frontline (rear supply)
Located at every Air Field
Located at every Naval Port and Dock
Air Force Garrison
Located at every Air Field
Except when they are frontline (must be buffered)
Paratrooper Garrison
Located at every Air Field
Always available, including no buffer
Naval Garrison
Located at every Naval Port and Dock
What is a Buffered Air Field? As with today’s brigade system, it means that all linking towns must be owned by your side. Once that is achieved, your Air Force Garrison becomes activated.

TYPES OF TOWNS
There are 4 types of towns.

Frontline - Frontline town is any town that directly links to an enemy town.
Backline - Backline town is any town that is diectly linked to a Frontline town but not linked to an enemy town.
Reserve - Reserve town is any town that contains an Airfield or Naval Dock/Port that is neither Frontline or Backline.
Inactive - Inactive town is any town that is not Frontline, Backline or Reserve.
WHAT WILL GARRISON SUPPLY LOOK LIKE?
Garrison supply will be a combination of our recent work on the Infantry and Armored Brigade units. So they’ll be a bit more diverse in their supply and have more options available since Garrisons will be all over.

GARRISON SUPPLY MOVEMENTS / CAPTURING A TOWN
All of the mechanics of moving Garrison supply is all handled by the system. Players will only have an interaction in determining country ownership as described below and primarily for the Allies, since the Germans only have one persona to manage.

An Army Garrison will continue to provide supply to all owned Depots and Armybases until ALL facilities are captured. (Can not bounce an Army Garrison)

Upon successfully capturing a Garrison, there will be a 10 minute delay before your newly captured Garrison becomes active and supply starts to trickle in. However it is safe to immediately despawn your supply and reserve it at the Garrison, providing your equipment matches the Garrison country owner.

You will then establish a new frontline town and receive full (100%) supply that trickles in over a 60 minute period. Your previous rear line Garrisons will be deactivated as the line moves forward, and new adjacent supply (Rear Garrisons) will be established.

This is key to the design in reducing the workload and management of HC officers to handle supply maneuvers, and offering more supply to players throughout WWII Online.

ALLIES MANUALLY CHOOSING COUNTRY OWNER UPON CAPTURE
When the Allies capture a town, the High Command will be given a grace period of time of [ 10 minutes ] to select which country they want to own the newly captured town. That will either be the British, French or US (when they’re available).

If they do not manually select which country owner will take the newly captured town, the system will automatically give it to the country where the attack order originated from.

So if the original AO was placed by someone in a British owned country, then that town will become British unless HC selects otherwise within that 10 minute period.

Visible warnings will appear for High Command Officers counting down the time

2019 Roadmap Under Development
Fortunately the 2019 Roadmap is nearly completed and is going through some final checks. It will include items not delivered (but are currently in progress) from 2018 and new items not yet announced. You should be prepared to see a variety of items from both Development and Production. We will be doing another fundraiser this year so get prepared for that as well - details to follow upon 2019 roadmap being published.

Greater transparency of Development efforts
It is our intent at Cornered Rat Software to keep you all aware of Development progress as best as we can. To further continue our tradition of being an actively engaged developer, we've decided that upon the 2019 Roadmap being outlined we will be providing a public facing Trello. The objective is to show you development progress in a public manner so you can follow along. Of course it will not include every nook and cranny of detail, but our hope is to show you at a relatively easy glance the moving parts and their current stages of development / integration.

JG51 is the first Squad back with HC
Congratulations to Squad "JG51" for completing the requirements of getting involved with the High Command program. They'll be receiving their Squad name on a Brigade within the user interface of WWII Online.

Axis CinC Commentary (Lafleur)
Axis forces flipped the balance of power on the Map by the end of the first week Campaign 160, from 55%/45% of towns being Allied at the start to 55%/45% Axis at the beginning of Week 2. Severe supply problems hampered the Axis advance through the weekend, with Allied RDP raids reducing capacity from our factories and creating a significant time delay in restocking equipment as compared to Allied units. However, the Luftwaffe rallied through interdiction of Allied bombing raids and counterstrikes on Allied factories. By the beginning of Week 2, Axis factories were back in action to levels equal to the Allies, restoring much needed supplies to our front lines.

Week 2 also brought strong Allied counterattacks on towns just west of the center and south river lines. Fierce battles raged all week around Grandpre, with Axis High Command having to work around the clock to keep our foothold in the southwest. In the Center, the Allies recaptured Couvin and threatened to push our units back to the river. However, as of midweek our forces had recaptured Couvin and moved our lines even further westward. Battles in the north featured a tug of war for Lier and Schilde, with the Allies desperately trying to dislodge our units around Antwerp. These efforts failed in the face of stiff Axis defense.

Of particular importance in each of our victories and successful defensive battles this week was excellent coordination between the Luftwaffe and Heer to keep bridges down and provide combat air support for our boots on the ground. Luftwaffe Branch Commander Rustylk and his brave pilots have made a big difference in the past week, but we need to continue to provide timely and accurate intelligence to the Luftwaffe on Channel 20 about ground targets and bridges that need their attention and Allied air activity over our areas of operation.


CRS TEAM UPDATES
I'd like to officially welcome aboard "BMBM" as our newest RAT at Cornered Rat Software. Bmbm has been responsible for many of the recent work pertaining to new vehicle implementation and is consistently learning how to grow and build our content set. He's also been helping with the implementation of reworked spawn lists aiming to make them more historical.

Also, I'd like to congratulate "TMAN" on stepping up to the Community Manager role. BLKHWK8 will be moving over to the Assistant Community Manager role and continue supporting the Allied Forces along with the CM / CRS team.

And last but not least, I'd like to congratulate "PITTPETE" on becoming our second newest member of CRS. He'll be stepping up to the Support Team Lead where he'll be helping our customers with technical and billing support. Pittpete has been doing this very successfully for sometime now and is deeply dedicated to the success of WWII Online.

If you're interested in participating at CRS, please check out www.wwiionline.com/volunteer for technical and non-technical opportunities.

MORE TIERS COMING TO WWII ONLINE
We're excited to announce that after a lot of planning and preparation we'll be transitioning the Campaign experience to include new "HALF" years. You'll continue to see Tier 0, Tier 1 and so on according to the database and in-game world. But these new tiers means equipment will be introduced into the Campaign a little differently.

You can see what that looks like with all of the Tiers laid out in advance by going to our Premium Discussions are in the "Barracks."

2019 is starting off with a "BANG" as players abuse(?) the new Christmas Toys! The snow has melted and CRS has hit the roads by adding new towns - thanks to Merlin51. Who knew he worked in the construction industry, right??? Also in this report, a quick synopsis from XOOM's New Year Report, Campaign #159 reports, and a Squad highlight!

XOOM's New Year Report
We hope everyone has had the chance to read the report sent on December 31st. As most of you know, this past year was a milestone for CRS, especially the Christmas release, which was the biggest equipment patch this team has accomplished! All our team members have done an amazing job and overcome huge obstacles. That being said, 2019 is going to blow 2018 out of the water!



Terrain Updates Inbound
As with most of CRS members, the holidays did not slow down Merlin51 - our main terrain editor guru. We had mentioned extending the map previously and it is now getting into SCKING and the Quality Assurance Team's hands! A lot of blood, sweat, and tears have gone into the future terrain update and I think Merlin51 will be ready for a vacation after its release lol. The proposed patch includes many current "terrain" issues as well

Thank you Merlin51 for all your hard work SALUTE!

Squad Highlight
WESTY91, our Assistant Community Manager, is looking to showcase the squads of WWII Online. The goal is to create squad awareness to new players so they can join a squad that may resonate with their individual game style.


 Subject: September 2018 Sep 07, 2018 -- 20:14 (GMT) 
Today we'll be talking about rolling back the HE "Penetration Constant" portion of our recent audit, which will revert changes specifically how bombs are impacting hard targets (vehicles specifically). We'd also like to place a rally call for troops to show up online and surge the virtual battlefield by logging in at 10AM Server Time (US Central) on this Sunday, September 9th. Remember, all veteran soldiers have a FREE Rifleman account and are eligible to join even if their premium subscription is currently inactive. This is a great time for all to join up and play - set a reminder and let your squad mates know!


ROLLING BACK HE PENETRATION CONSTANT

CRS has been carefully examining player feedback in and out of the game, and we've made the decision to roll back the changes which effect how bombs impact (penetrate) armor. This means that bombs will become viable again towards blowing up tanks and all other vehicles to their previous standards. The changes in the first place were made to steer more towards historical realities, and while we were close we need to invest some more time into how they function so that it effectively penetrates armor more appropriately.

Please do note, not all elements of the HE audit will be rolled back, specifically referencing fragmentation, will be the new version. This is good because it means the bombs frag counts were much higher, resulting into greater casualties / effectiveness.

These changes will be placed into the game with urgency, just as soon as we can.
SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 9TH EVENT

We're calling ALL soldiers to login to your side this Sunday at 10AM Server Time, that's 8AM Pacific, 11AM Eastern and 6PM GMT. Be sure to be on Discord (voice comms) found at www.wwiionline.com/discord.

For the duration of the event, Free Players will receive access to the "LIGHT ARMOR & MEDIUM ARMOR" DLC Packs. We'll monitor their supply closely and make sure there's plenty to be had. This will not effect regular supply pools as they are their own separate supply.

Remember both organically and on Steam, you are able to now play WWII Online for FREE as a Rifleman.
HQ ORDERS

Take this time to recruit a new friend to the game and get them ready for Sunday. Reach out to fellow WWII Onliners of the past and get them here to play on Sunday. HC Officers are requested to be around in force to support this effort and keep troops organized and moving.

That's all for now soldier, execute the mission!

Bug Fixes

While CRS continues their work on the massive 2018 Road Map, the teams have worked up a release that focuses on some known bug issues. SCKING and his team have been testing nonstop to ensure these bugs have been squashed. No date has been given for this release. We will keep you informed.

QA (Quality Assurance) Team has embraced a new team member, tr6al. Welcome!

My favorite quote from OLDZEKE, "Our job is to breaks things." I think he has a new QA team motto?


Forums

The WWII Online Forums lit up from topics like "Returning Vet Check-In" and "One time purchase DLC's coming to Steam!" are the hottest threads in the General Forums. For those with subscriptions, the Barracks and Hanger Forums have seen some heated discussions as well. From "RDP attacks on allied factories is impossible for Axis" to "Who are you?", there's always something going on. Jump in there and get in on the discussions! There's always Off Topic if you're bored... lol

1.36 Dev Update
One of Cornered Rat Software's primary objectives for 2018 is introducing "Hybrid Supply" into the game. In case you haven't been keeping up with some of the forum discussions and news posts about 1.36, Hybrid Supply is a major change to the way World War II Online handles spawn supply. 1.36 remains a significant priority and is under active development. All contents within represent a work in progress and may not be the final outcome.

Currently, the game features a mix of Land, Sea, and Air divisions and brigades which appear as flags on the map. These flags contain lists of equipment and supply that players can choose from and spawn in to the game world. Players that join High Command for their side can issue move orders and establish fallbacks for them.

Hybrid Supply will change this system by introducing static flags that populate every single town in the game world, with adjustments made based on the facilities the town has. These static flags will be known as "Garrisons". Every town with an Army Base will receive an Army Garrison, and towns with more than one Army Garrison will have additional Army supply. Every town with an Airfield will receive an Airforce Garrison and an Airborne Garrison. Every town with a Dock will receive a Naval Garrison, and towns with more than one Dock will have additional Naval supply.

However, these Garrisons will only appear on the map and be active for player use if:

The town is adjacent to a town controlled by an enemy (Frontline).
The town is adjacent to a Frontline town (Backline).
The town has at least one Dock or Airfield.

This means that every battle for a town will have supply available for both sides to spawn, and every battle can be reinforced with supply from towns behind the front lines. The only uncontested battles in the game for 1.36 and beyond will be battles where one side chooses not to spawn in. These battles will be able to receive support from Airforce and Navy elements located across the map.

Once a town is captured, the static Garrisons will change ownership to the Side that captured the town, and their supply lists will change to reflect the country that now owns the town. This is of particular concern to the Allied Side, which has three different countries. Some logic will be used to determine the default owner upon a capture based on total town ownership percentages, but Allied High Command will also be supplied with tools to change ownership with some restrictions also based on total town ownership percentages.

Movable flags as we currently have in the game will still exist, though in a reduced number with greatly reduced supply. Any given Garrison will have more supply than a movable flag. This eliminates the burden placed on High Command to ensure that supply is available for their Side in order to fight, but keeping the movable flags will continue to allow High Command to affect the strategic layer of the game with clever deployments.

Overall, Cornered Rat Software intends for Hybrid Supply to accomplish the following objectives:

Eliminate the burden caused by over-reliance on High Command players.
Eliminate uncontested gameplay.
Encourage better fights over larger terrain by allowing players to pull supply from behind the front lines.

With all of that said and out of the way, the question almost certainly on the community's mind is: Where is CRS at in regards to 1.36 and Hybrid Supply development?

The Development team, with assistance from Game Management, has finally been able to stock every town in the game with Garrison supply. Even getting this far has been a challenge for a number of reasons.

First, the Development team hasn't been able to focus solely on 1.36 development. Apple announced earlier this year that they will no longer support 32-bit applications on their Macintosh operating systems, which includes WWII Online. The team has been hard at work trying to update the game to 64-bit before the deadline imposed by Apple. Additionally, Development has been tasked with supporting other elements of the game, such as fixing bugs, implementing new features, and supporting other teams at CRS so they can accomplish their own goals.

Second, the Development team has had to spend significant time understanding how the current supply system is set up and how it functions. This means looking at both the database and the game code, discovering what is and isn't possible, and documenting how things work for future development. Some of the code the new CRS team inherited is quite old, and littered with things that can unexpectedly trip up the Development team, like the game thinking all the new Garrisons are actually HQs!

TABLES OF EQUIPMENT (TOEs) ADJUSTMENTS

Currently the Game Manager is analyzing a proposal that the Production team has assembled. It's quite a big adjustment to how we have supply and we've started with baseline historical numbers on a per unit basis. The objective is to provide more accurate spawn lists in terms of the number of vehicles available. Naturally we have to weigh this against game play and having fun, as with all things there's only so far into the realm of 100% reality we can go towards. But this has turned in to a good discussion point and the team is representing both sides very well.

In terms of when this will be implemented, let me be sure to say it's not something that we want to "rush." But it is something the guys are actively working to achieve.
DEATH LAG

An acknowledgement here on this particular topic is important for you to know that we're listening and reading the .reports, .bugs and seeing your concerns in the forums. I've asked our team to dig into this a little bit more to see how are auto-despawn is working and make sure that the grace that we provide for lower end connections can be properly balanced with making sure that those with a quality connection are healthy.

The Game Manager has a set of tools and will be getting some more reports from our development team soon to paint a good picture about what's going on. We can tighten up this, but it will be a little less forgiving for folks with a bad connection. That is the most immediate thing we can do. Otherwise evaluating where code improvements can be made is also significant, however with our current work flow being placed on 64-bit and 1.36, resources are hard to spare.

I'd like to know more about what you think on this, particularly, would you like to see CRS tighten up the reigns here a little bit and be less forgiving for lower end connections?
GUNS FLIPPING

HATCH was able to determine what was going on with the guns acting up and we've assigned an artist to go inside of the FLT files to correct the issue. So far we've updated two guns and will be updating more that are being affected. As soon as these are ready we'll put them up for release and roll them into the game, and announce which guns are being fixed as soon as possible.

This was one of those "top game breaking bugs" that was announced and it's something we're happy to report good movement on. We'll keep you posted.
RESOURCE ALLOCATION

We know that there's a lot you'd guys like us to accomplish, and we also know that when we develop a Roadmap and set expectations for what we're going to accomplish that we need to do everything in our power to deliver on that. Right now we're pretty tapped in our development resources on their current objectives. It's a tough balance to maintain but we're compelled to do the best we can to meet your expectations and deliver results for WWII Online.

The goal of writing this part is just a reminder to be patient and understand that although time has gone on a bit, the same difficulties in staffing and timeline to implementation continues to exist. Your grace is appreciated and your desire to get results is warranted undoubtedly.

Satchels now look better from the third person view
GAME PLAY ENVIRONMENT

We're pleased to report that we now have an assigned art team working on short term corrections to existing environment art issues. This team is also currently evaluating our options with SpeedTree. One of our first goals is to see how we can smooth the transition of how trees are populated (rendered) through the game, particularly as you're a pilot flying by at faster speeds. We also really want to resolve how the coloration seems to be off from close up trees to more distant trees, a very different green hue then it should be.

So a big thanks to Xl2Rippr and Mkw for their efforts so far, and to the Terrain team Merlin51 and Five who are helping them out greatly.
INFANTRY CONTROLS UPDATE IN PLANNING

While we don't have specific control updates to announce yet, we can tell you that there are some keys that come as quite a bit of a shock (un-natural) to players who are joining our game for the first time. It's safe to say that it would make sense to improve things for a new persons experience so they can more easily learn how to play and enjoy WWII Online.

We should also note we're taking a close look at making mouse sensitivity smoother and more natural, as somewhere along the line it got a little bit rougher. More to follow on this one.
FREE LOOK WHILE RIDING VEHICLES

For several of our new players who are riding on a vehicle, looking around is a welcome thing to do. As it stands right now you need to press the "N" key to activate free look, to use your mouse to move the infantry camera point of view. We're discussing the feasibility to make it auto-activate when you jump onto a vehicle's riding position as an infantryman, and auto-deactivate it once jumping off. We think this will help them more easily examine the game world and improve immersion / situational awareness.
HOLD FREE LOOK AS INFANTRY (NON-VEHICLE)

There's been discussion and a request for evaluation placed into the queue to see if it's possible for us to allow a user to press free look while on the run, so that you must hold it, then as you let go it would automatically snap back into the forward looking position. The key to activate free look will also change, very likely to be the LEFT-ALT key (to be determined). We think this would really improve a users experience in the field and help them check their surroundings with great accuracy and speed. The old Q+E keys have panned the head 90 degrees left and right for a good while, but it's snapping back and forth isn't smooth and you have an area where you can miss important items (11 o'clock and 1 o'clock can be missed).

GAME NEWS

1. VOICE CHAT: WW2 Online has switched to a program called DISCORD for voice communications in game. (TeamSpeak will no longer be supported by CRS). To setup Discord check the Squad Tab "Message of the Day" in game for the download and server links. (More detailed instructions can be found in the Announcements Section in the Members Forum of the 91st website).

2. GAME DEVELOPMENT NEWS: CRS has announced that some new equipment is coming to WW2 Online: They are planning to add new "tank buster" aircraft models to the game - including the Stuka 87-G2 (axis), Airacobra (US & French), and the Hurricane MkIID (British).

Also planned are new self-propelled anti-aircraft artillery (SPAA) units for the game - including a SDkf27 halftrack with Flak 28 for the Axis, and self-propelled bofors on a crusader chassis the allies.

3. STEAM: Work by CRS to move the game onto Steam continues. The current road map for the game is targeting Summer 2017 for a Steam release. (Note: this is the current best estimate for release - the timeline could get pushed back depending on the development process).

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

That's all the news for now. We hope to see all the 91st members (old and new) online. Saturdays are still squad days in game.

Salute !!!
 Subject: Happy Holidays !!!! Dec 23, 2016 -- 23:52 (GMT) 
Salute to all 91st members!

We want to wish everyone a happy holidays!

CRS is running a Welcome Back Soldier promotion over the Holiday season (Dec. 23, 2016 - Jan. 03, 2017). All veteran accounts are reactivated for this period. Free-to-play accounts have premium access to all the equipment and CRS is offering pricing discounts for returning subscriptions.

Its a good time to return to the game and check out the new changes from the last patch which include a new Fortified Mobile Spawn FMS) - the FMS is harder to destroy than the old FRU, and it can spawn light ATGs and AAA guns. There are also other new Player-Placed Objects (PPOs) such as tank barricades, ammo caches and sandbags. Also, the Axis 109 aircraft has had its flight characteristics improved.

And in case you have been living in the woods the past year here is a summary of some of the other main gameplay changes introduced in 2016: truck-only placed FRUs / MS were reintroduced, FBs are much harder to destroy now. Spawn Delay has been reduced to 30 seconds max. Cap timers are faster for the underpop side. A new infantry combat predictor code has been introduced.

All the above changes has improved gameplay significantly. Come join the 91st Squad In game - The current campaign is a close fight so far!

 Subject: Campaign 131 Nov 29, 2016 -- 00:43 (GMT) 
Well 91st, Campaign 130 is now over!

And if you didn't login this last campaign, then you missed some Axis history-making...

During campaign 130 the Axis side got pushed all the way back to the German factories. We even lost Frankfurt!

And then the Axis turned it around and won the campaign in a historic comeback. It was a lot of fun!

Now its intermission and CRS has launched a new patch with quite a few new gameplay changes:

We now have a new Fortified Mobile Spawns (FMS) that look like fortified positions and are harder to take down now. Also, the new FMS can spawn light AA and ATG guns for extra defense. (The old FRU boxes can still be placed but only in large cities now).

There are also a number of new Player Placed Objects (PPO)s in the game including Sandbags, Tank Traps, ans Ammo stockpiles.

Infantry also has new updated predictor code to help improve lag in firefights.

So to all 91st - get in game! The new Campaign 131 will be incoming soon!


 Subject: Campaign 130 Aug 21, 2016 -- 18:28 (GMT) 
Salute 91st!

Summer is now over and Campaign 130 is in full swing! Time to get back online!

One of the main Axis squads is playing Allies this campaign, so we will need all the 91st mainpower that we can assemble together in order to win this campaign!

To all new recruits: please remember to 'Enlist' on our main website, and also don't forget to register to gain access to our member forums. It is a two-step process. Please use your game name to apply.

Other News:

The game's developer CRS recently held a Summit in Texas in order to plan for the game's future. CRS announced that they have now successfully completed the upgade of the game servers, and the game is now in better shape to handle an expected rise in player population associated with the eventual launch of the game on Steam.

CRS has also recently introduced a new patch which is using a new predictor code for infantry gameplay. They have also addressed side imbalance issues by tweaking some of the gameplay mechanics: 1). Cap timers are now faster for the underpop side, and 2). the number of Attack Orders (AOs) on the map is now determined by the popoulation numbers of the underpop side (instead of total server population).

CRS is still planning to introduce more changes to the game in upcoming patches - including new infantry weapon kits, a new fortified mobile spawn that is a fortified position and can spawn ATGs.

CRS also plans to introduce a new supply system which will be a combination of the old "town based supply system" mixed together with some limited form of a "brigade flag movement system." The exact details of the new system are still unclear at this moment.

We hope to see you all in game!

 Subject: Patch 1.35 Goes Live May 26, 2016 -- 00:10 (GMT) 
Salute 91st !

The new patch 1.35 is out!

Multi-crewing is fixed. Many problems associated with player offsets, death lag bugs etc... have been fixed. The gameplay is much improved.

However, just a reminder: the game is an internet game so do not expect perfection. There will always be some lag issues when playing on the internet.

- - - - - - - - -

June 2016 is the 15th anniversary of the game and CRS has welcome back veteran month planned. Returning players can play with premium access for free in June. Discounts for renewed subscriptions will be available.

Its a good time to get back in game. The 91st is still going strong. The Axis have done well during the first 2 weeks of the current Campaign 124. But the allies have made a counter push on the map this week. We need 91st vets to get back in game so the axis can continue to push West on the map!
 Subject: VICTORIOUS for VICTAURUS! Jun 02, 2015 -- 15:24 (GMT) 
CRS's latest fund drive was successfully reached today according to our knowledgeable insider KMS (see his thread at our forums). Thank you to any and all who donated. This means finalization work (tweaking, testing, updating, proving, etc.) for the much delayed patch 1.35 can now be acted upon. A estimated 6 month timeline is predicted for patch release.

The current campaign is proving to be one helluvafrikkinfight, with the Allies refusing to acknowledge that it's our turn to win. Let us show them the error in their way of thinking. Login and fight!
 Subject: CRS Funding Drive Apr 19, 2015 -- 16:20 (GMT) 
We as a squad, have recently successfully raised $ for our website needs.

Now our funds are needed again, for a even greater purpose -the 'WWII Online Hardware Modernization'.

The Indiegogo site is [url]https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/wwii-online-hardware-modernization#pledges[/url], and is also linked at our forums and CRS's site.

There are rewards for squads who collectively donate.

In other news (4/19/15), our current campaign appears to be a honorable defeat (we resisted the allied hordes for a decent number of weeks). We may yet have another week of holding out against them left in us, but a new campaign sometime soon seems inevitable.
 Subject: End of an era Apr 04, 2015 -- 23:41 (GMT) 
Friday April 3rd brought some stunning news -that 'Doc' and 'Gopher' were leaving WW2OL/CRS. Doc always had a polarizing effect on the player base garnering both respect and derision at the same time. Everyone is entitled to their opinion about him, but I hope it's known and accepted that without his original vision, work and determination, WW2OL likely would have never existed at all. Gopher also deserves our respect for his endless contribution to WW2OL. I hope they find new challenges in the future, and know that they deserve and have our respect. [Leopold 4/4/15]

Four new team members added in the aftermath:
•Tyler "Victarus" Millican: Programmer
•Sean "Company0" Donahue: Customer Support
•Hector "Sadguy" Gonzalez: 3D & Texture Artist
•Jeff "Netalyzer2" Celentano: 3D & Texture Artist

Maybe we can hope for new vehicles?

New campaign #113 (started 4/3/15) ... LET'S WIN THIS ONE!


 Subject: We are new. Mar 16, 2015 -- 16:25 (GMT) 
Many new things are now happening.

We have completed our migration to our new host service, virtually painless and seamless, thanks as always to our heroic PIERCER, and he has also upgraded our forum software (again , awesome).

We are about to begin a new campaign today (3/16/15).

We may have something new to go with this new campaign, although KMS won't yet say what it is (new rule? new system function?)

So it's a new Monday, a new week, a new 91st web system, & a fresh new campaign.

Let us begin.
 Subject: Website hosting service changes Feb 23, 2015 -- 19:40 (GMT) 
Piercer, our squad website manager (and most excellent designer) will be moving us to a new host soon:

'Over the next week (hopefully) we'll be migrating the 91stsb domain to a new server. Because of the way these things often happen it will most likely create some disruption in service. I'm hoping that's not the case, but it's hard to predict typically.

Let me know if you have any questions.'
[Piercer 2/22/15]

In other news the 91st welcomes many new 91st officers and members. We also are thrilled to see that in-game player numbers have risen to the point where it's common to see 3 or more system AO's active. The combat intensity and challenges from playing WW2OL are better then ever.
 Subject: Advancing on all fronts Feb 02, 2015 -- 18:15 (GMT) 
If you're reading this then the 91st leadership wants to thank you for your awesomeness, for your willingness to take a few moments to check the 91st web page and forums, for you being a part of the 91st community. We would ask that you promote this webpage by pushing and cajoling other 91st members who are not visiting this page and forums, into doing so, so we can better tighten and strengthen our 91st community.

The MOTD has been tweaked to better indicate the requirement for new members to submit a join application -the 'ENLIST' button function on this frontpage. Anyone who has any involvement (especially squad recruiters) need to emphasize the content of the MOTD and this enlist application requirement.

Things are looking very good for the game and the 91st in that we are growing and gaining new active members, that we've had a successful game patch released, that the 91st funds have increased (thank you so much to all who contributed), and that the Axis has returned to its rightful position as campaign winners.

Excellent advancements on multiple fronts towards all objectives!
 Subject: Cents and Dollars and Euros Oct 14, 2014 -- 17:05 (GMT) 
XOOM at CRS has said that the banner advertisement seen in the upper right part of the web page when viewing any of CRS's forums (barracks, etc.), generates pennies (cents) worth of income to CRS each time it is clicked. Every time each of us visits the forums please click the ad (whatever it might be) & help CRS gain some $.

The 91st, however needs more then just pennies. We need dollars and euros to support our website. Please donate to KMS, the squad XXO and squad treasurer (see his thread at our forums) and support our website hosting fee. We currently have no money at all and only have a website functioning from the generosity of Heavy265, who isn't even a 91st member.

The donation information is in KMS's post (sticky) titled 'Funding Our Website' in our members only section.
 Subject: Quick camp & patch news Sep 21, 2014 -- 18:47 (GMT) 
Campaign 105 mercifully came and went quickly. Let's hope for better fortune in campaign 106, which should begin [edit : campaign 106 to begin Tuesday 9/23][....]

PATCH!

DOC talks openly and positively about a patch nearing fruition:

'In reality, the existence of a new and compatible client that can be released as game update patch, even as just a test build; removes a number of other hurdles that have stood between us, you and many other projects (like Steam, among others) and is the first tangible real paving work towards the horizon we are all trying to get to'[DOC]

(see 'Weekend Update' at BGE frontpage for full and lengthy post.)
 Subject: Campaign 103 has finally ended Aug 20, 2014 -- 00:06 (GMT) 
Today (8/19/14) DOC announced what had seemed very evident many days ago -that the Allies had won camp' 103. He praised our axis forces with these words '[the] German forces put up a simply amazing defense that wasn't going to let up until there was nothing left to spawn in from'.

Intermission is to last until Thurs.. Campaign 104's exact start time will be dependent on CRS completing some network and data base work.

I'm sure we're all looking forward to a fresh start in campaign 104 and to deny the Allies a 4th campaign victory in a row.

The 91st should see the return of a few wayward sons who wandered over to the other side for reasons that cannot ever be fully understood :).
 Subject: News 8/7/14 Aug 07, 2014 -- 13:22 (GMT) 
The front looks bad. Very bad. The Allies achieved a spectacular cut drive that isolated massive amounts of Axis territory in the west. It will take much strength, courage and will to turn back this surge.

In other news -THE SQUAD NEEDS MONEY to support this website hosting. KMS is now the squad treasurer -see his post in 'members only' forum 'funding our website' for details on how to contribute. Even just $5-10 (or more) is a worthy contribution.

At CRS XOOM has a thread at the barracks asking for player suggestions on new PPOs (player placed objects). Want that anti-tank obstacle, sand bunker, or maybe a lemonade stand? -here's your chance.
 Subject: News from the front and the rear. Jul 31, 2014 -- 14:19 (GMT) 
Yesterday July 30th, our Axis armies were finally able to retake a little of the losses we've incurred from the Allied advances of the last week, by retaking Marle, in extremely intense, heavy fighting. Gembloux was also recaptured at some time later.

In other news from the rear, quartermasters and training officers report that some divisions will not receive semi-auto rifles, but instead will be equipped with mortarman, ATRs, Grenadiers, and 232 armoured cars.

 Subject: Change in leadership Jul 28, 2014 -- 16:38 (GMT) 
After much concern about the continuing issues with the 91st leadership situations, and due time given for rectification, unfortunately it become necessary for an abrupt renewal in the leadership ranks. Duglas has proven his ability to be a top notch leader, and along with his long commitment to the squad, his experience as squad XXO, he has fully earned the office of 91st commanding officer. Duglas's first act as the 91st CO was to request KMS and myself (Leopold) as his XXO and XO respectively.

All 91st members & especially the new 91st leaders wish to thank Smgman and Sid49 for their long term devotion, duty, and sacrifices of their time and energy that they gave to their jobs as CO and XO. We all know their inability to be online in recent months is largely, if not completely, no fault of their own. These men have earned a permanent place in the 91st hall of honor, and will always have the squad's greatest respects.

DOC Well "Bloody Holland!" ... the second in the Bloody Battles campaign series, will be closing today after the Allies fulfilled the victory condition of winning 3 battles in a row. It was a hard fought series of battles with good populations attending and lot's of AO's and plenty of action. We recorded the highest kills per minute numbers we can ever recall during peak play times.

You can check out the AAR's from each battle and see the progressive scoreboard, and the battle parameters that were set for each battle here at the Bloody Battles webpage. We at CRS would like to contratulate all players that took part in this the second the Bloody Battles campaign in the series for a hard fought, kill laden event that frankly ... was pretty awesome.
 Subject: Bloody Holland! Mar 14, 2012 -- 11:16 (GMT) 
Bloody Holland! PHASE 3 – Weekend Battle Fri. March 16th –> Mon. March 19th

With the Allies victorious in Phase 2 the Germans find themselves pressed back into the corner of Germany itself. This does alter the airpower in Germany's favour with tons of airfields stacked with fighters and bombs just minutes away from the Allied ground forces. There are a lot of objectives in this ... possibly the final battle. If the Allies win this it will be declared an Allied Bloody Battles campaign victory with 3 battles in a row won. If the Germans can win this one we will revert to a points total, first to 60 points will win the campaign.

Fortress Germany – 7 Ground Objectives

Germans hold at start :- Allies hold at start :-
Duisburg – 4 points Maastricht – 4 points
Dusseldorf – 4 points Monchen Gladbach – 4 points
Aachen – 4 points Dinslaken – 3 points
Ratingen – 3 points

There is no separate bombing objective for Phase 3.

Friday, 23 December 2011 14:23

Another year has flown by! It's hard for us to believe we marked the game's 10th anniversary- for many of us it seems like not that long ago we were fighting our way through launch day.

2011 had up and downs for the Rats. We reached many of goals while some remain on the horizon. We were pretty excited to finally add another country to the game with the U.S. forces while we're still feeling the aftershocks of host re-writes that were necessary for us to move forward.
Players who have remained members of our community for a while probably already know that our team works harder than many others to keep pushing forward with the vision we created in 2001. This community has seen the game go through rough times and exciting milestones- that's why so many of you choose to remain.

Over the holidays, many of The Rats will be taking a deep breath and spending some time with family and friends. Some of us will continue pushing to nail down remaining issues with the live cluster. We will be coming back to the office in January to tackle some unfinished business from last year and mapping out our plans for 2012- which we will be sharing with you.

On behalf of the entire team at Playnet and Cornered Rat Software, I want to thank you for your continued support, and I want to wish you, your friends and family a healthy and joyous holiday and the hope that the year ahead will be filled with fun. And a special thanks goes out from all of us to our volunteers who work tirelessly to help us make the game better.

Happy Holidays!

NOTE UPDATE: Thanks to KMS and Heavy265 (yeaay!) the squad patch decal problem should now be fixed. They were able to help the CRS programmers determine the cause and a fix went into the small patch released yesterday. However it may be necessary to reset the decal by changing to a different decal, login to game, logout again, then return to account managment and reset it back to the squad challenge decal, to get it to finally show correctly.

Pack your gears up and form up with your squad mates !

Following officers orders is mandatory, ignoring them is subjected to sanctions.

If no officer is online, you can take OIC of the squad and lead it.

We hardly encourage all members to try it, never let a member play as lonewolf, use the force of the teamplay !

Yesterday 7/29/09 Campaign #54 began!

All LOA's, shoreleave and furloes have been canceled. All soldats of the 91st are called up for duty. Intelligence reports indicate our enemy has begun this war with an attitude intent on revenge for the last war and it's humiliating defeat they suffered. So we have an enemy we must take seriously. Let us begin!

Any questions about the squad management should be asked of them. Orders from these officers must be followed. If none of them are online when you play, ask if someone is OIC. If no one is currently acting as OIC any 91st member may assume the role of OIC and lead the squad. Playing as a real functioning squad will make us unbeatable.

Astro676 has just been promoted to the position of CO of the 91st Sturmbattalion, and I am stepping down effective immediately.

It has been a great year for me as CO of 91st, however RL has taken a much greater chunk of my gaming time than it has in the past. Vinci and Astro have been brilliant XO's, and as a team I believe that we have maintained a nicely run squad. I thank you both from the bottom of my heart. It was fun.

I wish also to thank the other 91st officers, especially Messtin, for their support. Finding my feet at the start was a little tricky, however the wealth of experience in the officers' ranks smoothed the way. I guess that is why we continue to operate as we do; 91st members developing as friends, and as members of a team at the same time. The loose canons get weeded out, leaving the tried and true to maintain the integrity of our squad.

The rank and file of 91st? God love ya! Thanks for forming up, thanks for doing the tedious duties, thanks for throwing your lives into certain-death defences, and above all thanks for being a part of our great squad.

Thank you all for accepting me as your leader over the past year. It has been the highlight of my gaming career.

This campaign was remarkable:
We lost ground until our factories then we fought hard to regain ground to ENGLAND ! In 5+ years I never saw england completely invaded as we did.
Axis are courageous, and never give up, this campaign was a perfect new example.

Then, this campaign showed up how the 91st squad has valuable members. Some of us have been rewarded for outstanding work by HC.
I had discussion with HC who told they like giving us objectives because they know we do the job.

Congratulations 91st,

Another map. We won this one. That is a bonus, but it is not really what we play for.

As a squad we remained steadfast, and we played as a team. Our contributions were recognised by our side as a whole. Our members played the hard plays and the soft plays, and never differentiated (as "stat-whores" would).

We have fought in air, on land, and in sea. Most of us never shirking the tedious jobs.

In short, 91st has had a definite influence in the result. For that I thank every one of you.

Lets all think about what we can do to pack a punch in campaign 51. Post any ideas in member's forum. My thoughts are that we need to commit to the SF principles.

A tight fighting unit that is well trained will gain more than a 2nd class Iron Cross. It will be the envy of the Axis. With a bit of dedication to the ideas that Vinci is proposing we can be just that.

I am a 1.5 kd fighter at best. Vinci is more like 3 +....EVERY campaign. As a field commander he has kudos. He is no stat whore, he is a seasoned fighter who wants to take us up a notch. I do too. That is why i place myself under the direction of Vinci in SF.

After intermission, I ask all 91st to consider the SF and training on a regular basis. I believe that it is the future of the 91st (greater numbers, tank columns etc etc).

Rant over, Scotch becons.

Great maps guys.

Thank you Messtin for conducting it. I think with regular sessions we shall have the crack unit that we are looking for.

The objective today was to formulate an efficient CP attack and defense. We have the formula, now just need to drill it to obtain speed, and teamwork.

Thanks to Vinci for organising the event with Messtin, and showing us how to work a grenadier with brutal efficiency.

There were only four 91st there today, which was a pity. However, the few other squaddies in the training server made the numbers sufficient to practice.

I have joined the SF, and ask all 91st to please consider joining.

I was privileged to attend Messtin's sapper training session last Saturday.

Mess took us through some quick and easy tank boilers and crew killers on French tanks. His next session is the same on English tanks. I suggest that all available 91st attend, as it helps alot.

Thanks go to both Messtin for devising the training session, and Vinci for patiently allowing us to cook his French ass. B )

Those who attended were: Messtin, Vinci, Caserock, Teagle, Acegacek,and Fook from 91st. Bogol, and Amosgt attended from other squads. At least the 91st attendees outnumbered those of the other squads eh? All 91st attendees are thanked for their time.

On Thursday night 91st got an AO for a soft cap. Malmelon was our target, we didn't prevail on this assault.

A tight paradrop line of supply made the battle go the defender's way. However, they paid for this victory in blood. Among the fallen were clvan265, muller9, dasjackal, peppito, and fook. We tried hard, however the numbers were not in our favour. Regardless we worked as a team and drew attention from a P1 assault.

Great work all, and Happy New Year 91st!

CLV clocked up 3428 sorties for us last map, he is promoted to full 91st member, and rank of schutz. Shweatty has been a solid defender of bunkers and cps, taking jobs that are at times tedious but essential for map taking. Shweatty is promoted to Gefreiter.

!S soldaten,


For people who did not yet played for 1 week, we are in the 49th CAMPAIGN !

This one is special, we switch the side, but we keep our equipments.

Some RDP rules have changed:
All RDP is suspended from bombing effects. RDP bombing will still slow down supply to the brigades and divisions, but each new tier will be made to arrive at the same time for all countries. Thus while RDP will not function to give each country their new tier of equipment at a different time based on factory damage, factory damage will still delay the resupply of your opponents weapons lost in battle, in fact we have increased the delay possible by 125%. So bombing RDP factories affects the battles success that you wage, but no one will have disparite tier equipment based on bombing. You can delay the resupply of your opponents by up to 10 hours now, by bombing their RDP factories.

Overstocking limits have been increased as well.

Let's play together, have fun and kick ass !

2. Make EVERY effort to get Teamspeak up and running....and use it.

3. Follow the directions of the OIC. If there is no OIC, someone take up the reins and get a form up happening. Support the squaddie that is doing this. This is what being a squad is all about.

4. Support each other in the field. Tow, resupply, cover fire, recon....all of these things make attacks successful.

I have been guilty in the past of NEVER CHECKING OUR SITE. Tiger5 asked if I was interested in joining the brass in 91st, and I said yes. He said that I would have to start using the site if i wanted to reach these vaunted heights. Well i did, and now I am reeping the benefits. A Pyramid scheme that you wouldn't believe!!

 Subject: Proud to be 91st Jul 13, 2008 -- 10:41 (GMT) 
Tonight I was reminded of what a great squad we belong to.

I had the privelige of commanding 3.2 on a diversionary assault on Guise, a two AB town, to relieve the pressure on LaCapelle. When I say that I was commanding the brigade, there were 4 91st involved total. LOL.

Upon recieving an AO from HC, Conseq, Rolone, Dewars, and Your Humble Narrator went and stuck it to Guise. We were pestering the town with mole tactics; hit and runs, new opels as needed. And we didn't relent. After the best part of an hour of this HarrisC joined the fray. We kept contesting the town, until YHN capped the spawnable for the first time. From there we kept that spawnable defended throughout the next hour. Never once did we loose it (although we came close a few times).

Once the spawnable was ours HC got us a number of dot axis' (a big thank you to Ctdan for his assistance on dots). These dot axees brought a FLOOD of soldaten.

91st remained prominent in identifying threats, capping cps & abs, defending positions, and comminicating with our brothers in arms. In short, we rocked!

It was a pure infantry based assault, and remained that way. We owned a 2 ab town in 91st style. We demonstrated that 91st has a backbone, clad in stubornness, and topped with canny battlefield knowledge and communications.

Thank you soldaten. My thanks to those who fought today, and those who fight every day for our squad. My faith in the 91st is confirmed every day on the field of battle.

Here we go soldats. Time to strap yourselves in, TS up, and knuckle down. We have a new map, on which we shall outfox our advantaged foe.......again!

There is talk of inequality in machinery, and GHC not operating as some would wish.

On the first item, I would agree. However, it never stopped us from forming up, communicating effectively, attriting them, then taking the town off 'em. Never did, never will. Bitching and complaining about inequality, or poor communications could be deciding factors in who gets the town. I ask the soldats to knuckle down, and get on with the job (as you guys do every map). I know at times I feel like pulling my hair out after a tough death; I log off at those times, rather than vent my spleen. Remember, it is a game. Without an opposition we have no game. Keep it cool, and be smart with your equipment. Work as a team. Don't spread over the whole map. Form up and communicate.

On the second item. GHC are dedicated players who are trying hard to win the war for us. If they make mistakes, let them sort it out in-house. I place little expecation on GHC, and am never disappointed. Try the same philosophy, it makes the game what it should be......fun. I have no expectations, I make requests, and these requests I make only once on channel 10. I do not want any 91st harassing GHC, or bad mouthing them. Stick with the 91st objective, and work as a squad member, not as an armchair General. Remember, have fun. Its a game.

If the battle isn't going the way that you think that it should, and you think that you could do a better job, join GHC. I will support any member who feels this way, as long as they do not make 91st seem a bunch of whinging pricks.

Sorry about the brow-beating guys, but we need to remember that its a game, bitching gets you wound up and those around you. Lets get good clean teamwork happening. We will be discouraged at times, however we will have some great battles in the coming months. It is after these battles that I feel best about the game. How about you?

 Subject: Opportunities for Squaddies seeking advancement. Jun 21, 2008 -- 10:27 (GMT) 
By now we all world have read my TS and form up policy. So to relieve the monotony, I'll bring it up again. USE TS, AND FORM AS A SQUAD! lol

Please read the forum in members area. We are looking for keen squadies to put themselves forward.

 Subject: Team Speak, and No Speak Jun 14, 2008 -- 01:20 (GMT) 
Members of 91st Sturmbattalion, I have a message to impart that is grave concern to me, and is fad that needs to be stamped out of our time honoured squad.

The two elements that make a squad viable are teamwork, and communication. Too often I log on and find the squad spread over the map, and no one on TS.

I am not condemning individuals. When I log on alone, I quite like a period of lone wolfing. However, as others log in the lone wolf should be the nucleus of a building force. And that is how it is to be......AS OF NOW!

The Office in Charge shall be the first online. As members join they SHALL greet the squad (via !S 91st). Following the greeting, if the OIC hasn't given location details, the new member shall ask where he is needed. If the current OIC is afk, the second member instantly assumes the OIC role. Further members form on him, and afk member forms in upon return.

OIC shall discuss plans on TS and coordinate the assault.

OIC is not necessarily based upon rank. A schutze can be OIC. All members are to follow this man. Once a target is set, ALL MEMBERS are to work on that target. This can be via land, air, or sea.

OIC is passed to the ranking officer by consent of both parties.

There is only ONE EXCEPTION to this rule; those 91st who have GHC duties are excused from the current 91st assault. however they too are expected to remain in contact with the squad.

I am about to embark on a policy of enforcing use of TS, and fighting protocol. Please ask any questions in the members forum under the sticky that I have placed there.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation soldaten.

 Subject: Bethune Capped 91st Style Jun 12, 2008 -- 15:04 (GMT) 
After a tip off from Candela; Biglez, Candela, and Your Humble Narrator stormed an unsuspecting Bethune.

Are 3 91st up to taking a whole town? With one opel, one atg, and one lmg, we set out to answer this question. Aided by TS we kept each other abreast of the changes in the field. Via TS Biglez was enabled to obtain a 100% success ratio on 2 ets. Via TS Candela was transformed into a CAPPING machine, popping 5 caps on one mission plus kills. TS showed YHN in his true form, a vicious killer of allies, with a REALLY shitty sense of humour!

A final parra drop courtesy of channel 10 comms, was the icing on the cake. The poor allies got nailed.

In short, we capped, we held, we shagged them rotten baby!

GFJ guys, thanks for working as a team.
 Subject: Welcome Back! May 30, 2008 -- 23:48 (GMT) 
A big welcome back to Heavy265, Geninrui, and Tiger5. The guys have been pulled from retirement to bolster the axis war machine, during the allied pig's invasion of the fatherland.

With KMS as CinC, and proven veterans like these, it will not be long before we are eating those lousey cucumber sandwiches in Dover!

!S guys great to have you in the field with us again.
 Subject: Axis has a new CinC, our own KMS. May 25, 2008 -- 22:27 (GMT) 
At 2.00 EDT this evening / afternoon. KMS shall be sworn in as our CinC. This shall be on the training server. All available 91st please attend the ceremony.

I am very proud that a 91st member is our CinC, and stoked that it is our level headed mate KMS.

!S KMS

(P.S. I think that we need a private 91st ceremony once Vonunke is back. The handover of Messtin to Vonunke, and a 21 bum salute to KMS)

 Subject: Tier3 almost upon us Mar 22, 2008 -- 05:09 (GMT) 
With the allies having tier3 and our troops on the verge of getting tier3 we are hoping to halt the advance that the allies are doing in the north.
Hopefully we will use the Tigers and new aircraft wisely and put them to good use.
Lets support the HC on this push east and if one of our squaddies gets a Tiger out, follow him with an LMG.
 Subject: Time to hit back Mar 11, 2008 -- 07:26 (GMT) 
We have tier2, we have the resources to hit the allied armies and push them back to mainland.
The allied armies have pushed us hard over the last week to try to break our backs before tier2 kicked in and failed, now its our turn.
Roermonde was the scene of some intense fighting yesterday with the axis forces ripping the allied dogs a new one and plucking their air force out of the sky with our murderous bofors and our glorious Luftwaffe.
 Subject: Dig deep Mar 06, 2008 -- 11:29 (GMT) 
This campaign is turning out to be a a very busy war with the allies throwing everything, including the kitchen sink at us.
The best thing people can do when they start to roll on edge of town and the allied paras start to come down is stay in the cp's and wait for them to come to you, they cannot take the town if they cannot get into the cp's.
The allies are trying to gain a big push like the last campaign, so lets dig deep, keep our heads up and work together to hold our ground until tier 2 kicks in.
 Subject: Team work Mar 04, 2008 -- 23:16 (GMT) 
We have concentrated in working together as a unit more lately and is paying off with new rekrut's coming in because they enjoy working with a squad,as a whole.
Lets keep this as our main objective for the squad and keep the 91st as an example for other squads to follow.
Remember, being in a squad means working as a squad.

 Subject: Seems the new site is in good shape so far! Feb 16, 2008 -- 02:33 (GMT) 

Well, I have a few requests queued to be updated but nothing that's causing any big issues. Things for this week:

* Just added the frontline map to the front page. Want to add in the RDP numbers but the Kfsone's wiretap data is having some problems. So might need to wait a few days for that.
* Styling fixes, a few tweaks here and there
* Stat updates....I need to fix the stat link to the new member rooster, fairly straight forward, but new members for the last 45 days haven't been picked up.
