To celebrate the first month of fighting on the Easter(n) front, we’re having a FREE VETERAN MEMBERSHIP WEEKEND this coming weekend as an early Easter Egg for all players.
The event starts Friday the 27th of March at 10:00 US EDT / 15:00 CET and ends Monday the 30th of March at 09:00 US EDT / 15.00 CEST. Click the dates to see when this is in your timezone and note that the European Union switches to Daylight Savings Time in the middle of the event as well JUST to add a pinch of confusion.
NB: As usual if you already have an active Veteran Membership during this weekend, we will extend it with 3 free days! In order to participate in the FREE VETERAN WEEKEND you must have an active account that has played at least one staged or war mission before Friday.
UPDATE: Servers back up! Enjoy!
First of all, sorry for today’s long downtime. What has happened is that an important server in the game’s backend decided to fry its memory. When the server technicians at the hosting center then replaced the memory, something else apparently broke and they had to pull the server down again. Somewhere along the lines the main boot disk then decided “hey, I want attention as well” and corrupted itself.
What has happened so far is that the server has been booted from a rescue set and we are making sure nothing else has broken and are checking that all data is correct, creating another just-in-case backup in case something else decides to break, and then the server technicians at the hosting center are working on getting the OS back up and running and hopefully get everything back to normal as soon as we have verified that all backups are correct and that no data has been lost.
Again! SORRY for the inconvenience and rest assured that we are working as fast as WE can and doing our best to make sure that the server techs at the hosting center are as well!
UPDATE: Offer has ended
To help to get the Soviet faction kickstarted in the Campaign Game we are offering a time-limited discount. This is your chance to get your general gameplay going and get in on the Soviet faction with a hefty discount.
For a LIMITED-TIME only:
On Soviet Officers, Soviet Generals
and Soviet Assault Teams
This latest update brings the Soviet Union to the war as the third playable faction! 3 Factions fight for domination on 3000 battlefields (1000 new). The update is named Timoshenko (after the Soviet marshal and military commander Semyon Timoshenko) and here’s a quick overview of the new features we’ve added for you to enjoy!
There is of course much more happening in the build, so continue reading for more details…
Having recently looked at the new Infantry Uniform Variations for the Germans and American it is time to present a line-up of the soldiers of the Soviet faction.
Read more for details of the how the various soldiers and their variations look!
Among the many new light tanks, Medium tanks, heavy tanks, weapons, uniform variations etc. that the Timoshenko update brings, a seemingly small update to the spawn rules is hiding. This will have a marked impact on the way you play the action game and help promote teamwork across the board.
- For the first 10 seconds after a Car/Motorcycle/Halftrack or tank is spawned it now works as a mobile spawn!
But what does that even mean? Keep reading for more details!
A feature that has been requested by the community for a long time is uniform variations for infantry. And since this has been requested for a long while, we found it prudent to start off by showing the variations for the German & American faction!
What about the Soviets I hear you ask? Don’t worry! More information about their uniforms is coming soon.
Soviet troops are marching! And beside (and behind) the tanks we have recently shown, infantry advances. These soldiers carry a selection of weapons, including SMGs, light machineguns & semi-automatic rifles. A crucial part of flanking is being able to keep your moves quiet, hence equipping a knife or shovel is a good way to kill some enemies without anyone knowing.
