    A small insignificant town..not worth much..no factories..no production points.

    I notice on the map the axis have put an attack on it.

    The town I was in at the time had been battling on for 5 days straight, we were holding the axis off fairly well..I decided I was not needed there.

    I decide Ill go set up an anti tank gun in ambush at this other town just now being attacked.

    I spawn in as infantry first to take a look around..I hear tanks..lots and lots of tanks..maybe 3 km away...the town looks clear of enemy infantry at the moment...I go to the capture points and looks just to be sure. ALL our flags are safe..so I decide to spawn a 57mm cannon and see if I can get a tow.

    Then all hell broke loose..it was amazing.

    Im hooking my cannon up to a truck when I hear the sound of planes...I look up and see the flight formation of HE 111..each with 2200kg of bombs.[​IMG]

    .they had already let loose the payload...I can just start to hear the bombs whistle....I knew I was dead...nothing I can do.

    Thats not what killed me ...as the bombs are falling..a flight of 15 JU 87 dive bombers come in at tree top level...each carrying 500lb bombs...I watch as they let the bombs go...in secs ill be dead.

    Just as the JU 87 are letting loose...about 10 BF 109 fighters come screaming in at 400mph..straffing the army base..thats what got me. As I lay there bleeding out..the bombs hit. It was just totally amazing..they killed everyone within 500 meters of me.

    At least 30 planes hit us with precision timing...maybe within 30 seconds they all hit us...we lost 8 tanks..5 anti air guns..2 anti tanks guns and many infantry in 60 seconds tops.

    I spawn back in as infantry..no chance at getting an artillary piece out of the base alive...the bombers are gone but the fighters are till straffing the streets and buildings..army base...constantly..one after the other...some late ju87 are still dropping bombs.

    With the noise of the bombers gone I can hear the enemy tanks getting closer to town..maybe 1 km out.

    I run from building to building till I reach the edge of town..I peek out a window...to see maybe 25 axis 4g stugs..the toughest tank...lined up on a hillside all hull down just turrents showing over the ridge. Our tanks never had a chance..most died within minutes of spawning. As im peeking out the window I see the axis sniper 1000m out..I see the flash..Im dead.

    I respawn as a sapper infantry..4, 20lb charges..im going to try and sneak out of town around behind them...So I spawn in....then I hear the trucks..the tanks have opened fire..the sound is deafening.

    I could barely hear the truck approaching tearing thru the bushes...its almost on top of me before I see it..it was packed with axis infantry and towing 4 cannons.

    He is going to run me over at about 50mph...I toss a nade straight up..it lands in the truck bed....15 kills one nade...I dodge the truck....the cannon he is towing all deploy....I get an 88mm shell point blank to my head.

    I respawn as infantry again..it was a massacre...as the big tanks stay on the hill pounding anything that moves...10 fast light tanks roll into town..I manage to sap two of them.

    Then the next wave of planes came..maybe 30 bombers...I take cover this time in a building...the building blows up. I spawn again.

    The infantry then came.. They were everywhere..attacking every side of the city at once...we had maybe 15 men at this point.( there was much bigger battle going on elsewhere]

    ..there must have been at least 100 enemy infantry from the reports coming in from around town..not counting the tanks and planes they had.

    I send out a message "111"....that means holy shit this town is screwed.

    That gets about 40 more people to spawn in the town. too little, too late.

    Then the enemy paratroopers came..I counted 30 paras just from the first plane..then 4 more planes of paras come..maybe 100 paras dropping right down into town..I killed 5 in the air..another 4 as they hit the ground...something kills me.

    I respawn..then the messages start..axis have captured this building..that building..cap after cap our flags were falling one after the other...people are screaming at each other in chat..tempers flaring..we were getting pwned.

    It can take days to take one town..the axis rolled that city in 60 minutes.

    It was the most amazing bit of well co-ordinated attack I have ever seen...they proceeded on to take the next 5 surrounding towns within 3 hours. They wiped out 2 divisions of our army in 4 hours, it will be days before those divisions are back up to strength

    today we will try and get the towns back...payback time.

    worldwar 2 online..as soon as we get the new game engine with all the eye candy..Ill be trying to get you guys interested.

    I remember playing a bit with you back in the day on this.. Even then, it was still the most amazing, most fun mmo I probably have played.

    If you plan on flying, you must have a joystick, mouse will not do.

    Looks like a lot of fun that redefines the purpose of guilds. Now they can be armies that launch strategic attacks, not just names and capes.

    I would have tried it if it wasn't for the $1 trial fee. :p

    Great story. The game definately sounds more interesting after reading that bit. If it isn't too tough to pick up, and is persistent like Planetside, then I might give it a go.

    I tried playing ArmA for an epic + realistic shooter, but there are so many problems. Servers are terrible, and 95% of the games played are co-op, against an AI equipped with a ridiculous auto-aim, and an ability to detect you from miles away. It isn't competitive.

    If WWIIOL is this good, makes me wonder why more of us aren't playing it.

    dude ww2ol has been around for years i do believe.

    They have gone through 2 engine updates over the years, and it is still going strong...

    This game is just amazingly awesome.

    One of my favorite games of all time.
    The reason not that many people play the game(or ever did really) is because they released the game way too early. The game was not even a good starting point, Several months later they released the patch which was needed. But by that time the people who were originally interested in the game had moved on.
    Besides that, The game is also a bit too much on thm side of things for most gamers short attention span. It can be veeery slow at times and the learning curve on equipment and vehicles requires you to actually spend some time on it to get good. It really is practice and skill in alot of ways.
    The only reason the game has survived as long as it has in my opinion is because there are enough people who believe in it. I personally wish they would close the project, Do some work on it, make it modern warfare and re-release it.

    Just my $.02

    yeah but thats the great thing about ww2, it was modern back then. Which means no laser guided missles, no cheap shit to work with. Just you and your gun. lol

    I definitely agree with you, WW2 games have been popular because the weapons are pretty cut and dry and non-complicated.

    there has been many many changes in this game in the last year....supply is no longer tied to a town.

    Its all divisions and brigade that have the supply....if a towns is being over run we can pull out divisons to fallback towns...or take divisions and bring up to the town being attacked. Also if a division HQ is over run..every brigade in that HQ is sent to the training area and can cant be used for one week.

    No longer can airfields be assigned to a frontline town..keeping noobie commanders from losing whole squdrens.

    well today was no better for the allies than yesterday.

    .the axis are rolling us..wiping out whole armys.

    It the battle of the bulge again...they have 6 divisions..3 are armored div... against our 4 infantry divisions... Facing us in the south..they pulled them from the north over night...the british are kicking ass in the zelands..captured many deep water ports.

    But I see this war being over in 2 weeks unless a miracle happens. We won the last 4 wars..a record for use..Germans are giving us payback.

    out of 50 wars in the last 6 years..I think it stand at 39 wins for the axis.

    But it is 1941..the axis have the real badass shit..better tanks..batter cannon..better machine guns..better optics..faster and stronger planes..faster trucks..better rifles.

    Tomorrow our factorys run thru there development cycle..even tho the axis have wiped out 25% of our factorys with 200 planes bombing runs. SO we get some newer tanks..bigger cannons..newer planes.....this war is lost tho...moral is low..some have jumped to the axis side leaving us even more shorthanded.

    Axis out numbered us almost 3 to 1 last night. It was massacre after massacre..a gray horde.

    UNDERDOGs..I loove being the underdog. I had some great fights..fought like a madman...down to the last rifle we defended towns against over whelming forces..we would be down to 6 men with rifles inside the last bunker...surrounded by over one hundred men mad rushing us in the bunker....down to no ammo...fighting men with machine guns and grenade launchers with knifes. I died at the radio...room littered with bodies...we lost 3 whole divisions in that battle..it was epic.


    We immediately counter attacked from 3 nearby towns..the axis are holding fast but taking heavy losses from our bombers. Im about to go join back in.

    THE AFTER COMBAT REPORT CAN BEST ILLUSTRATE HOW BADLY WE ARE LOSEING


    http://csr.wwiionline.com/scripts/services/index.jsp

    MY KILL DEATH RATION HAS GONE FROM 3.57..TO 0.73 THIS WAR....I spawn in..look out the first window..go out any door..cross any street..dead dead dead.

    If I live more than 5 minutes..ive made it out the spawn points and into some brush or woods....last night I made it out a spawn camped by the axis..totally surrounded by axis tanks.....using smoke I made it out....I jumped into the nearest bush...killed 5 axis i had jumped into bush with my knife..any gun fire would have alerted them all I was there ..then a tank crushed me under his tracks. I never made it that spawn again alive.

    I went i on 6 paras missons last night trying to save a surrounded town..over 200 men in each jump...I never even made it to the ground...in 6 jumps..twice my plane was wiped out by fighter pilots..the other times I was shot by the unreal fire coming up from the ground. We did save the town.


    I had one shining moment..an axis ju 52 para plane..me with a 40mm anti air gun protecting some factories...two shots..them at 3000 feet..each shot blew off a wing...the 40 paras tried to desperately to jump out of a spinning twirling plane on fire.....they were too low....I watched as 40 paras went splat all around me. tWO SHOTS i GOT A KILL ON A ju 52 AND 40 PARAs....then some axis walked up behind me with a pistol. I heard the pop pop pop. It was our last aaa gun.

    Too bad my kills dont count anymore,, Im already the highest ranking in game...I just fight for my side...loseing or not. I get credit for kill for no more rank...Im now number 53 in anti air gun rankings out of top 1000.

    Its the most intense fighting ever in a game..no choreographed dance steps taking down mob..no macros ...there no winning plans that will always win..its mano a mano and each man does his part.

    One man can save the day..capping an important point while surrounded by enemy....taking 30 minutes to sneak up ona hilltop full of artillary and taking them out with a sniper rifle....tossing a nade in roomfull of axis capping the last bunker....one man in a bomber taking out 10 tanks that have an army base totally camped.

    last night one fighter pilot attacked 6 bf 109..he killed them all almost...I did help..he had 6 on his 6....he flew low over our base looking for our aaa to help him..I took out one on his tail with a 28mm aaa gun..everyone in town was looking up and yellng for him...some real heroes in this game..many unsung.

    Just checked my stats..every kill i have made and with what and what i killed for the last 8 years is listed..with names. In 8 years Ive only killed the same man 3 times..HE KILLED ME 2 TIMES....THERE ARE LOTS OF PLAYERS. OVER 50000 KILLS..RARELY KILLED ANYONE MORE THAN TWICE.

    IN 8 YEARS i HAVE A 3.57 KILL RATIO..THATS BADASS IN WW2. THIS WAR IM 0.73


    something amazing happened..seems I hit a stuka dive bomber with a 50mm mortar..500m range....I never saw it..didnt know I hit it. But I have a kill on a plane with a mortar...amazing lucky shot...he must have ran into it on a low bombing run.

    That makes 39 planes shot dawn as infantry in 8 years. I even took a out a HUGE 111 bomber with a pistol..the only known instance.

    I once was alone in the woods..everyone else dead...a lone stuka(small dive bomber) plane over head....all I had was a pistol left. He cant really see a lone inf travleing at 330 mph at 4000 feet.

    So i pop my four smoke and stand in the open field daring him to kill me...well here he comes..straight for me...I dont even lay down..I stand there as his guns blaze trails 10 feet either side of me.....i didnt fire shot..he had to much speed..he makes a tight turn losing lots of speed...he comes in again.....I have 6 shots in rinky dink pistol...your lucky if you can hit a man at 20 paces.

    He opens fire from 1000 yards...i wait..he keeps firing..he is almost dead on..the ground tearing up around me.....I take aim and wait till i can see his face....one shot....he crashes at my feet. a lone man..with a pistol..takes down a ju87. That had to one very pissed off axis...and no one around to see it..:(

    I also hit a ju87 with a hand grenade..saw his prop stop dead..no prop..he goes down..that was another sweet moment. The dumbass pilot showing off by cruising the town between buildings at 20 foot level..he was good....I was better. I died as his wing clipped me as he hit the ground


    this game is full of epic moments...makes all the useless deaths worth it.
    but dont let me fool you...a 0.73 kill ratio is good...you will die constantly..the battles seems futile..people scream at each other ..tempers flare.

    Its the hardest game you will ever try to play.

    I was going to show a screen of 15 destroyers burning in a port...they were pounding us us with 150mm cannons..anti air guns..3 in guns...we heard thru the grapvine we had air otw to help...i HAD NO IDEA....there were more planes overhead than i could count...15 axis destroyers that were pounding us into dust..all go boom..we were all yelling like idiots...woot go fly boys.

    We took the deepwater port....we shot the axis in the water as they tried to swim to shore...some just sat there waiting to be shot..cursing us in giberish..you can hear enemy speak if they close..buts its all giberish...like shooting fish in a barrel.

    looking at the map..axis having gained 15 more towns last night...we are so getting our ass kicked.
