Memorial Day Weekend

This coming weekend is Memorial Day weekend in the United States with Memorial Day itself on Monday.

This is a day honoring those who lost their lives in military service, similar to Remembrance Day in the British Commonwealth, Volkstrauertag in Germany, the ANZAC Day in Australia and New Zealand and many other days of remembrance all over the world.

We want to take this opportunity to remember the ones who have sacrificed their lives to secure the future of their nation, not ONLY in the United States but all over the world.

Happy New Server Year!

As some of you already noticed, we got some new servers up in Australia and Japan, with two more in Texas and Brazil on the way.

Orange servers are online. Green ones are coming soonOrange servers are online. Green ones are coming soon

Getting good ping in Australia has been underway for a long time, but we finally got it. We also have quite a few players from Brazil, so we’ll add a server there. There’s also a server on the way in Texas, which can provide good ping for California and Florida which currently don’t have the best connection.

We do our best to keep an eye on where servers are needed and put servers there. If you feel that we missed a spot, please let us know in the forum.

What are you waiting for soldier? We need heroes on the battlefield and generals to lead them!
