KFS1 on 1.27

(August 28th - Cornered Rat Software)
(CRS) Cornered Rat KFS1, WWII Online Game Server Programmer: " We're extremely excited about 1.27 - the last 12 months have been slow going with a lot of work going on that hasn't been very visible to you, our customers. In 1.27 that work made its first big payoffs.We went into this development cycle very warily, it seemed like a so-what feature set that was going to put up a real fight. But from the outset things started coming together and the featureset very quickly and very naturally started to fill itself out.On the surface, TOEs are scary and confusing as hell; when you've had chance to play with them for a while, we think you'll find them a lot simpler and more natural than anything since before 1.17.Tuesday morning (Aug 28th) we are going to cease the current campaign and for the next several days - perhaps until after the vacation weekend - run a "microcampaign" with accelerated RDP to give you and the HCs a chance to sink your teeth into RDP, supply, and these other new changes.We can't wait for you all to get a chance to play with the introduction of infield resupply and ammo stockpiling that is going to blow people's minds when they start to see new possibilities. We are really excited to see what you folks will do with all these new toys.Personally, I haven't been this excited about a patch in a long time :) " Link Production Notes

1.27 pending so Truce declared

(August 24th - Oberkommando der Achsenmächte)
(OKA) Axis High Command Daily Log24-Aug-07Troops were on the move across the Muese River. Now secured, Phillipville was being readied for the next push forward. The Allies were building towards a counter on Philipville. Recon reports revealed several Allied build ups in the area. A forward base had been set up and was bustling with activity. I took a platoon with me to scout this forward base for my self as I had good reason to believe my counter part Ballew was leading the counterstrike on Phillipville. As I approached the forward base I saw a huge flight of Allied bombers inbound Philipville, I ordered the radio man to warn the command in of the eminent danger.Sniper fire rang out, we were spotted. As I took cover I saw most of my platoon die one by one. I finally got visual on the sniper, snuck around and took him out. In all the excitement I had not realized I was now out of Ammo, I could not get back to my men as the area was now full of Allied infantrymen. I could here Panzers approaching and as well the sound of French Tanks. There was about to be a clash right near my position. I took cover knowing my Troops would be victorious. Then I could rejoin them.As the eminent battle began I saw a French Commander attempting to flank my position. I had no ammo and I had only surprise in my favor. I made a dash to a more secured position and waited for the commander to come close. As he got closer and closer I noticed it was none other than my nemesis Commander Ballew. I was going to bag me the Allied Commander in Chief himself. As he closed on my position another Allied infantryman ran up and crouched just 3 feet in front of me. Did I risk being seen or use my knife to kill him silently. I chose the knife. The infantryman was able to fire a shot and gave away my position to the Allied Commander. I finished the infantryman off and grabbed his rifle. The magazine was empty. Ballew was inbound and only 10 feet away. I pointed the rifle and noticed he had just a knife in his hand. Somehow he knew I had no round in the weapon. He danced around as if to dare me to fight hand to hand.We argued, swore, called each other names. As we began to scream at each other we realized that our fits of rage at the beginning of the map where we placed a bounty on each others Command staff had us both without immediate staff. We began to laugh, my men had killed his command staff and his men had killed my command staff and we were left with the options to fight to the death and possibly have the victor win the war or decide on a truce to build up our commands again. Neither of us willing to allow this sort of victory we both agreed to call a truce. As we shook on the agreement I was able to steal his command plans for future Campaigns.As I walked away I could here him snicker. I wondered what that was all about until I noticed he had taken my plans as well. AXIS will be Victorious.25-Aug-07Began to restructure my command with the finest field commanders the Axis has ever seen. Soon we will break this truce and finish what we began.

Do not mess with Kriegsmarine´s Fairmilles

(August 19th - Oberkommando der Kriegsmarine)
(OKM) Kommodore Mwhitman, Chef des Stabes der 2. Angriffsdivision released a video where members of his Division attacked and sunk a british Destroyer.. with Fairmilles and infantry! Discuss.


Gyrfalk, the British Destroyer Captain, explains: " Well guys that DD was me.I have litle experience with DDs , i just got rank a week or so ago.Still here is my side of the story.Me and 2 other destroyers (i wont give names if they want to step in its ok) got close to the canal and there was a DD there being pounded by fmbs. I shelled them both but one was sheltering behind the DD so i went to the canal to sink him. 2 others came to help, dont remember if they were 1 or 2 but anyway i killed them them too and proceed to find a DD near BOZ and face him.He released a few torps but to no effect, and i opened with my bow guns and he did the same i think he got major damage because he despawned.Then i was expecting another DD hidden to the west but 3 fairmiles just advanced full speed all guns blazing. I had a lot of damage by then, no ammo in the bow guns, and they managed to get all my guns very quickly.Now the worst part was i thought i had 2 friendlies behind me helping...well i was wrong they moved west and left me by myself facing the odds. One even told i was *****in.Ok i said lets see where these leads..slowly started to move west trying to get some speed and disengage but the fmbs got my engines or propeler and caught up with was fun cause from there on i had 1 110 shooting me 3 fmbs and an EDD far that shot me a few times but he didnt make a move. I heard shots of a rifleman too. I laughed a bit too, hehe .I just sat there to see what happens next but no i did not yelled on comms or anything and the DD that came, did it on his own decision not because i didnt cry for help.Off course i warned him of the far DD and he got him by surprise .. and sunk him.I then startd list and gluu gluu.I knew this would give a great story for all those guys around me so i didnt despawn .Anyway this is what ww2ol is about or it should be.. a good gaming experience.S! all and good game keep those wolf packs teams, navy needs more pplGyrPS- Some of were very quick to judge my actions and call me an idiot, but maybe those should look in the mirror a bit more..."

Relax video a YouTube hit

(August 8th - Axis News)
(PR) The somewhat odd world war II online video; "Relax" by Svedala was released August 6th, and within hours it placed itself as the #38 most linked video on Youtube among game videos that day. Today, 2 days later it´s still climbing and holds the #31 ranking (update: #26) kicking Starcraft 2 and World of Warcraft videos in the nuts. Using the music of Mika, the new music phenomena, with suggestive unreal clips from several world war II online campaigns, the video have been linked to almost one hundred sites over the internet and it´s still spreading. The sequal, "Another World" is in the making and will be an ode to the fighting men and women of the 6 year old MMO which features the largest gamemap on the internet. Watch the Relax video here
