The Big One

Cornered Rat Software

What is a wargame ? Most gamers are familiar with shooter style games that run across a variety of era's and back-stories.

Traditionally, WWII (Second World War) is frequently a strong proponent of this genre of shooter games. Only one MMOG based on the "shooter" gamer has really presented a full on hard core wargame experience however.

More than a decade ago, a small band of gamers got together, formed a company and created World War Two Online. The object of the game was to take the shooter style game, on as many levels as possible, and combine them into a full blown war in which all players on many different levels waged a campaign to take over the world, as modeled in game. This meant tanks, aircraft, even ships, combining with the traditional shooter participant, the infantry to create a totally player driven war that functioned from High Command planning the strategies and operations all the way down to the rifleman, the mainstay of frontline combat.

Even supply was a factor, with Production Factories updating the weapons, tanks and aircraft to follow the evolution of the war over time. Players could manually run supply missions to bolster their defenses when attrition threatened to strip them of what they needed to defend against major assaults by the enemy. Extra supply could also be stockpiled in advance to prepare for a major attack planned for anywhere along the front-lines.

This war is fought over the single largest gameworld ever created for the purpose, including northern France, Belgium, the Netherlands, England and parts of western Germany. Campaigns can last as little as 3 weeks or as long as 3 months. Victory is determined by the players and it is easily the toughest, scariest battle you'll attempt to win as a gamer. Starting out in 1940 with the Allies comprising British and French troops and weapons, if the time line reaches 1943/44 without a victory, the American Army joins the battle.

World War Two Online is still alive today, and still the most unique wargame experience of any MMOG currently available. The big news is that while the fans of this game are currently engaged in Campaign 99, the big one is just around the corner.

Campaign 100. The 100th war campaign of Germany versus the Allies. Tanks and towed guns, fighters and bombers overhead, all controlled by actual real time players, combine with infantry using machines guns, rifles, demolition charges, mortars and anti-aircraft guns ... fast armoured cars and mission supply trucks ... all determined to take over the world and wrest it from their enemies control.

The makers of WWIIOnline, Cornered Rat Software, are offering a range of 100th Anniversary specials to celebrate this huge event with their long term players and supporters. Accelerated experience and level gains are going to be in effect for all players. Weapons and equipment not normally available for low ranked players and Free2Play accounts will be available for this special campaign.

OFFICIAL CAMPAIGN 100 PLAN (HERE)

Come join the party. Old veterans of the game and new players alike, all in the biggest, baddest, most hard core war any game can offer. Be warned though, this one is not for the weak at heart. It's tough, and because the campaign game is so vast in the range and variety of tactics, strategy and the combat itself is so brutally YOU'RE DEAD BUDDY if you don't play it smart ... the learning curve is steep. Doing well at this game is a huge achievment, and perhaps why it's die hard fans have stuck with it for almost 13 years. Don't be afraid to tell someone if you're new, they'll look after you and teach you how to be one of the killers, rather than one of the corpses. Joining a squad is a good idea.

Campaign number ONE HUNDRED. Don't miss it. It took over a decade to get there, and that's pretty huge.

Based on feedback from the last year of dynamically managed special events, Cornered Rat Software has designed a new and unique special event. Usually falling in between campaigns as a break from the regular “grind”, these events were designed to be different and exciting by focusing combat to smaller area and having specific and easy to understand objectives. These events are the model for the new BLOODY BATTLES special campaign: Time-limited, objective based battles focused on a specific area of the map.

What does this mean for players?

  • INTENSE, FOCUSED, OBJECTIVE BASED COMBAT!
  • RAPID TIER ADVANCEMENT FOR QUICKER ACCESS TO FULL EQUIPMENT LIST!
  • RPATS, SEMI-AUTOMATICS AND AMERICAN FORCES GUARANTEED!
  • ALL NEW VICTORY CONDITIONS!

We're taking the best of WWIIOL:BATTLEGROUND EUROPE and delivering a whole new concept in campaign play.

READ ALL ABOUT THIS EXCITING NEW CAMPAIGN EVENT HERE!

The first Phase that will kick off the event is "THE BATTLE OF SEDAN". The French and British must hold Sedan from the Germans. This two day phase will play out until Wednesday when the victor will be declared and points awarded.

The BLOODY BATTLES campaign offers the potential for some incredibly intense combat for players old and new. No more run-of-the-mill Intermission. No one will be wandering around the map asking where the fight is. Specific and easy to understand objectives. Rapid access to the full equipment list. Less demand on the fine volunteers who make up the High Command. A shorter campaign with more unforgettable encounters.


Each phase will have a web page with the back story and the objectives clearly defined. A scoreboard is being created to keep track of each battles and the points tally.

We're trying something different using all the best that the Battleground Europe has to offer because we want you to have more fun playing. We're really excited to be offering this new campaign special event to you all and we're asking for your support as we work to improve the game you know and love.

Don't miss out on this unique campaign event! Get your fill of intense combat, a new persona and new weapons! Your High Command is excited to be focused on leading men into virtual combat! This event promises to have some unforgettable encounters, don't miss out!

10th Anniversary Announcement- WWII Online Adds U.S. Forces

Written by Al "RAFTER" Corey
Executive Producer, Cornered Rat Software

 

Today marks the 10th anniversary of continuous operation of WWII Online and we are excited and proud to announce the addition of U.S. Forces and a new scenario-based game play option called, "Rapid Action" (R.A.). U.S. Forces will first be featured in the "D-Day" Rapid Action scenario pack and as part of a campaign special event.

For the past several months we have been working on re-writing several of the key systems that make the game work behind the scenes. Many of you have read about this work in recent development updates. This work was required not only to improve the update (host/client) and scoring systems for campaign play but also expand our tools for running scenario/special events with unique rules.

In addition, we have been hard at work evolving our terrain system to create new, highly detailed play areas for R.A. scenarios. To kick-off these new systems and features we have produced the first of many unit and weapon sets that feature the U.S. forces from the WWII era.

U.S. Infantry

* M1911 Colt Automatic Pistol
* M1 Garand Semiautomatic Rifle
* M1A1 Thompson SMG
* M1918 Browning Automatic Rifle
* M1903 Springfield Sniper Rifle

German Infantry

* GeW.43 Semiautomatic Rifle

Beginning with v1.34, a new game UI option will allow players to choose "Campaign" or "Rapid Action" (R.A.) game play. R.A. is our title for scenarios featuring new, custom terrain maps. These scenarios can be created any time using featured maps and can be joined at any time.

R.A. will offer games like Death Match, King of the Hill, single and two stage objectives and more. All will include the new scoring system with real-time events such as player/team points, streaks, objective points and more.

These custom scenarios, utilizing the same simulation-based play found in the campaign will provide instant and frantic action for players who want all the best of WWIIOL at a faster pace or as a break after those 4 hour siege battles found in the campaign.

Rapid Action- "D-Day Pack"

Our first R.A. scenario pack contains 3 unique maps designed around the Allied invasion in June 1944.

"Dog Green" - Relive the beach landing on June 6th in a huge terrain modeled from satellite data, Allied maps, German records and hundreds of photos. This map includes the actual landscape and every bunker, trench, minefield and beach obstacle found at "Dog Green". Will the Americans once again push the Germans back and capture the Vierville Draw? Now you can play either side as many times as you want to enjoy all the action.

"Le Pont du Mal" - In this scenario, an American infantry unit is trying to capture a vital bridge near a French town. The Germans make a hasty defense and are desperate to retain control. Can the Germans hold off the Americans until they are re-enforced?

"River Run" - With both the north and south bridges leading into the town destroyed, the Germans now must engage in a house to house fight with an American unit to see who will be victorious for control of the town. This map includes a special feature for the side that can keep someone alive in the church bell tower. This scenario will certainly earn the title, "Rapid Action".


Campaign Special Event- "The Battle for Aachen"

Our first campaign special event will be a recreation, "Battle for Aachen". The following is a synopsis;

The Allies have moved swiftly across France after their breakout from the Normandy beach head. The Germans, having been rolled back to the very borders of Germany itself, make their biggest stand to date at Aachen, the first major German city to come under Allied threat from the American forces readying themselves to invade Germany. The rapid advance of the Allied forces has stretched their supply lines to the maximum. The Germans have lost most of their equipment in the headlong retreat across France. Both sides will be depending on the upcoming attack at Aachen to influence their fortunes of war and their states of supply.

The schedule and details of this special event will become available in the coming weeks.

1.34 has been in extensive testing for several months and we will be providing a lot more information and updates on availability of this upgrade in the coming days.

We hope all players, past and present will join us in our excitement of this next milestone in the history of this wonderful project.

S! from all the Rats

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Q. Americans!!! I see them listed for "Rapid Action" and campaign scenarios, when do we get them in the actual campaign?
A. We are committed to our long-standing game design of providing balanced play throughout our timeline tiers. Work is underway to complete more of the dozens of new vehicles and weapons required to accurately represent the U.S. forces in Battleground Europe campaign play. Until that work is completed, expect to see large-scale special events and "mini-campaigns" that include U.S.

Q. Do these new R.A. scenarios mean you are no longer focused on improving the campaign game?
A. NO! Much of the core system work and new features we're developing and first deploying in RA scenarios are a test bed for additions to the campaign. For example, an all-new real time scoring system will be ported to the campaign game once the systems are battle tested in scenario play.

Q. When will we see new R.A. terrain in the campaign game?
A. The path is not yet clear on migrating our terrain systems to support hundreds of square miles of play with the detail offered in the new RA maps. The work done in this area for R.A. scenarios is another example of a test bed for the campaign game. Expect to see additional discussion with our community on this subject in the coming weeks.

Q. Will other R.A. scenarios be available after the D-Day pack?
A. Yes we plan to deliver additional scenario packs, weapons and units to support both R.A. and campaign play.

Q. Are R.A. scenarios going to be free?
A. All scenarios will be free for subscribers to play at launch. We expect to offer some content "unlocks" in the near future for even more variety in play.

Q. Is R.A. signaling the beginning of "dumbed-down" gameplay for WWIIOL?
A. Not at all. We are retaining all the attention to detail, historically-based design, advanced physics and damage models that has made WWIIOL the premiere, hard-core combat experience. We are simply lifting that play and packaging it into a fast action style that may appeal to existing players and hopefully as an introduction to many more new players.

Q. When? How soon?
A. As soon as we have a date to announce we will. As you can see from the screen shots and videos, we are in the late stages of testing.

WWIIOL:Battleground Europe Development Update - May 2011

Written by MOTORMOUTH
Public and Community Relations Manager, Playnet Inc.

2011 has been a big year for Cornered Rat Software when it comes to overhauling and updating WWIIOL. Our new infantry model hit the battlefield a couple of months ago and has had a big impact on the look and feel of the game. But we're not anywhere near done. In a continuing push to improve the game, the team has dug deep into the code to clean, update, kill and streamline the way the game works. Is this sexy? On the surface, not so much. But the new technologies and features that it let's us bring to our players is most assuredly sexy as all get out.

Most of what we're working now on is updating and refining Host and Core technologies as well as bug fixes. Eleven years have passed since the original coders sat down and started creating what was then something unique. Many of the issues we have today with CTDs and MR.P (Mission Results Pending) are caused by outdated Host code. Time to rip it out and build something spiffy.

Here's some stuff that's in development. Some is for 1.34, some is for later down the road.

General:

    * New Battles Tab
    * New permanent MMHost connection which opens the door to many, many things including fixing MrP and the locked personas
    * Improved host performance for improved infantry updates and smoothing

Host:

    * Complete rework of the update system
    * Cell host efficiency / performance for US and China
    * Quality of infantry game lay experience for BE
    * Resolution of many long standing online issues (strange states, warping, stuck firing, etc)
    * Strat/map updates without clicking
    * CP and Facility messages Host -> Client directly
    * Replaced the underlying "Grid" system with clone of the Chat Grid system
    * Replaced the "biasing" system with a highly optimized version that processes an entire vis list at a time rather than a vehicle at a time
    * Vehicle "remove list" sent independently to client
    * Time and Weather updates sent independently to client
    * World Update packer on host is now single-pass rather than multiple-pass
    * Fixes stuck firing bug
    * Eliminates a number of potential state bug causes
    * Increases cell host efficiency by 10-15%
    * New system now working on dev cluster with other players visible, mobile and most importantly very smooth

Game

    * OIC (Officer in Charge) changes:

Formalizing and coding in a new Brigade OIC role. A variation on the Volunteer Brigade OIC, it will allow interested players to run through an automated training and testing that grants them authorization to step into the Brigade OIC role without being in the HC. This eliminates the need for an HC officer to approve of a volunteer OIC over and over again. While not technically in the HC, it can be a jumping off point for interested players who can move onto more advanced training.

    * Bringing the HCTool in game

The current tool set is old and breaking down and is hosted outside the game. We'll be moving the essential tools into the game for ease of use and maintenance.

    * Improved Event and Scenario tools

The idea of bringing the events and scenarios into the UI and creating a whole set of events that can be quickly designed and executed is something we're excited about. With the help of BEGMs Xiper, we're getting close to having the ability to set up and run some kick ass events much easier than we can now.

    * New emote system

Stripped out of the recent infantry remodel, there is a new library of emotes we're looking at bringing in.

    * Increased performance from new compile as in 1.33.1

Always great news!

    * Future upgrade to OpenGL 3.2 (latest stuff)
    * Revisiting the PPO feature and evaluating what should be looked at next including more infantry PPOs and possible extension of the feature to include naval (boats and inf) play. Though nothing is slated for release on that we expect that the turnaround time will be pretty short for these

There's even more stuff in the works. Stay tuned for Part 2 next week.

Playnet Inc and Cornered Rat Software's highly anticipated 1.33 update is now live and introduces a completely new infantry model. The game is available for download and play at the official website: www.battlegroundeurope.com.



Bedford, TX (PRWEB) March 18th, 2011 -- In another major update to the longest running MMOFPS, Cornered Rat Software has released their version 1.33 update for WWWIIONLINE: Battleground Europe. Like 2010's major terrain update, this infantry upgrade impacts the look and feel of the game players are expecting in a modern MMO. Late in 2010 it was announced that the infantry were undergoing a complete transformation, one that includes new models, new kit objects and new animations. The finished product went live this week and the players are already giving it glowing reviews:
 

"New inf models are VERY NICE animations are sweet. The paras kick ***. The animation is smoother and more traditions between actions, a lot more realistic. Whoever worked on those did a fantastic job."

"It's looking great, difference is night & day... compare the new stuff to the old and it looks a lot, lot better now. Better animations & uniforms will just help with the immersion"

"It's totally awesome. No more generic infantry models. Excellent work CRS!!!"

"Immersion has gone up+ again! Looking good :) Thanks RATS"


 

A full read me of the features included in v1.33 as well as game updates and announcements can be found on our website at www.BattlegroundEurope.com. A 2 week free trial is available at www.BattlegroundEurope.com/trial.
