A lot has been going on behind the scenes! CRS is working on fixes that impact your immediate game play, and tools that help you manage your personal accounts. The previously mentioned hotfix is getting close to its release, and is in the hands of our Quality Assurance Team for testing. Steam Store "live-streams" have been making a huge impact as many new players enter the battle field! Allied and Axis CinC's express their Campaign 159 messages to all players, and WHIPs is featured as our QOTW (Squad of the Week)! Read the full article below...




Steam Store Live Streams


Steam has opened up new doors, allowing Developers to live stream their games. These streams are shown on the store front page allowing thousands of players to see WWII Online first hand! A lot of questions and peaked interest has resulted in hundreds of new accounts! Keep an eye out for those "green tags" in game and help them experience all that WWII Online has to offer!



 


New Billing Pages in the Works


Our "organic" billing pages are getting a face-lift with a few new features!


As you can see, the new site is more direct and intuitive.



Your .bug reports are always sent to the Quality Assurance Team automatically, but one of the new features is the ability to view your .bug reports for you to reference and follow up on. 



The new site will be available soon!


 


The World @ War Gazette and Squad Tools


The Gazette had a quick update from SNIPER62 (like he had nothing else to do hehe) and is back in action! Easy "snap shot" of the current Campaign status and interesting facts make this page an invaluable tool for HC Officers and players alike! View the site here.



Our Squad Tools site is not new, but seems to be overlooked by most. Squad management and Top Squad performance from any platform is at YOUR disposal! Just log in to the site here.



 


CinC Reports


Hateract - Allied CinC report:


It has been a tough start to the campaign as many expected. The changes to the TOES listing has really changed the way in which we at AHC go about setting up defences and pressing AOs.


I wish to place on record my thanks to everyone on the allied side. You have fought like lions against the odds, and whilst we are on the back foot, I have no doubt that you will continue to give your all for the allied side.


AHC needs YOU. We need officers who are able to lead their fellow players into battle. Join us!


 


LaFleur – Axis CinC report:


The mighty AXIS rolled across its starting position lines late Monday for Campaign 159 (dubbed  the "Hardest Campaign Ever" due to the reconfiguration of Allied and Axis equipment levels more consistent with the historical differences between armored and infantry brigades).  With panzer supply down to a handful of Stugs and 232s in infantry units, and with infantry supply scaled down to size in armored units, this new style of campaigning has certainly been challenging for both players and the OKW.  But as with any new equipment or supply challenge, the key to success is communications and teamwork.  In the last month of Campaign 158, the Axis side really came together and started having and fun working together as a team even more so than in the earlier parts of the map. 


That momentum has clearly carried over to the Campaign 159, as Axis forces pushed back the initial Allied thrust in the Center/ North in the first 24 hours, after which the Axis countered with a blitzkrieg sweep into the South to turn the Allied flank and push them to the Meuse River all the way from Verdun to Stenay in the first 48 hours.  Sustained fighting and excellent teamwork also pushed our lines across the Meuse at numerous bridgeheads in the Center around Namur, Dinant, and Haybes by midweek.


As of Thursday the Axis had firm control over all strategic towns along the Meuse except Sedan, and it was time to focus on the North – Axis forces pushed West along the Sambre river and the towns above it to reach the outskirts of Brussels.  We turned back to the South leading into today, Friday, taking the last Allied stronghold on the Meuse and pushing across to create a zone of control west of the river one or two towns deep along its entire length.  The tireless work and team play of the Axis fighting forces its OKW officers have achieved great gains during the first week of Campaign 159, going from a town ownership ratio of 45/55 in favor of the Allies at the start to having 55% of the towns Axis as of this report.  Having said that, we are still in the early days and this is just Tier 0 – this will likely be a long campaign -  let's make sure we are fighting it on Allied soil from here to the end. Keep up the comms in-game in chat and on Discord and work together so we continue our march westward through the weekend and into the second week!

About "WHIPS"


White Pudding Suppers, one of the AXIS' most prestigious units, have long since developed a reputation for being able to trigger a massive defensive response whenever they arrive to cause trouble. Make no mistake, these guys are extremely good at what they do.


WHIPS are a Spec Ops unit that specialises in both assaults and holding actions at Forward bases, along with airborne and naval raids on enemy facilities. They can often be found operating in close proximity to 12th Royal Lancers and the two squads maintain a


Healthy rivalry as they battle for supremacy in the Points and Map Movement standings. If you see these two squads going head to head, report it to your nearest High Command Officer ASAP as this is likely to be where the battles that change the course of a campaign take place!


Does being a virtual "Spec Ops" operator sound like your cup of tea? Join the WHIPs - You won't regret it!
