The Creation known as OT

How OT was created by Fredrik1
It is true that of which they tell. That one the first day, in the beggining of all things, Rafter decended down the stairs into the serverroom and said "Let there be forums!" in which we can have several subsections that would cover discussions all from navy to infantry, and he saw that it was good.
On the second day he once again visited the serverroom, this time he said "Let there be gameplay forums!" in which users can praise and civliy discuss our product.
He saw that it was not so, and he divided it, creating four beasts..

the Barracks - which held the beast head.
the Hangar & the Motorpool together formed the arms, legs and torso..
lastly the Hangar was made from the beasts left pinkytoe..

Then on the third day he once again visited the serverroom, this time he told of a forum unlike any other.. he took everything he could think of, and grinded it into the 'nix machine that holds all life.. the he created OT..
and he saw that his creation was complete..
Then he accidently tilted his coffey mug, pouring the black liquid onto the server farm..
It took three more days to replace the server, and on the seventh day he rested..
and that is how Rafter created OT in only a week.

(OKH) Generalleutnant Potthead, Kommandeur der 3. Panzerdivision, announced: " S! I hereby would like to award Nafkorn with an award of Merit Star for his courage and bravery and teamwork in every area of the game. NAfkorn always takes on tasks as that are critical and is one of the first to voluonteer for such tasks. During the breakout of 16/09/2007, when allied attacked heavily on many of our northern towns and captured Turnhout, Nafkorn assisted me in many ways by guarding / sapping multiple Fbs to allow for much safer flag movements and cripple enemy attacks. This is only one of many occasions where NAfkorn has gone above and beyond call of duty to serve and protect the Fatherland and for that I SALUTE U NAFKORN. Here is your first of many medals to come sir, where it with pride. The Merit star is awarded to an officer or player that has shown meritorious service to the Axis Side. This can be from gaurding a bunker, running supply, ht/opel driver ... This award is highly regarded and the recipient of this is held in the highest respect by OKA." Thread

Production Notes

(September 21st - Cornered Rat Software)
(CRS) With the introduction of TOE´s in 1.27 KFS1 takes the time to explain what´s going on in the production department: " We'll be making a few, choice, adjustments to TOE variables next week - no new rules or functionality. We focused on the core issues to determine which of the many variables would offer the most bang for the buck and address the factors of current issues rather than symptoms. And we resisted to go in and tweak everything that we weren't 100% happy with so that we can continue to study the evolution of these new features closely and most importantly have the ability to attribute cause and effect."

GreatOne's retirement speech:
I just wanted to say thank you to each and every player that plays this game and the ones who are back now becaus of 1.27 that I haven't seen a in a while. I am gonna miss working with you as I have gotten to know quite abit of you all in my time as being a RAT for CRS.

Its been fun and I have enjoyed it and will still even when I am gone. You will still see me around playing and so forth, feel to drop me a line when you see me. I have made allot of friends around on all sides of the game dating back to when I was a Branch commander for the french navy! So I am never gonna forget any of you all who I have touched over the years as hc and rat.

You guys are the best there would not be a game if not for you guys . Stick around and see this game through it should be very promising as it is going to advance even after these toes. I can't wait to see the finished product myself should be quite awesome, I want thank all the rats too they are a great bunch of guys most of the time when they want to be hehe. Anyway Thanks again guys!
