Steam "Labor of Love" Award - Vote!

Quincannon: Hey everyone! I just saw that nominations for this year's Steam awards are up. One category this year is the Labor of Love Award for games that are still being developed and receiving updates from the Devs well after release. If any category fits WWII Online, this is it. No Dev team has ever worked as hard or as long as the rats. So if you're on Steam PLEASE nominate WWII Online for this award! It can only help our community and game pop!

Click the below picture go to www.wwiionline.com/steam.

Labor of Love - Award Description: "This game has been out for a while. The team is well past the first unveiling of their creative baby, but being the good parents they are, these devs continue to nurture and support their creation. This game, to this day, is still getting new content after all these years."

Campaign 170 BEGINS!!!

Attention all soldiers, airmen and sailors! An all new WWII Online Campaign (#170) has just started and you’ve been ordered to report to your commander for duty! The Tier consolidation plan has been completed, which will get your more equipment into the war faster while maintaining balance. This is the first Campaign since recently reactivating Free Play and we see a continued rise in population for both Free Players and Premium users. We’re asking everyone to get into game with a renewed sense of purpose and refreshment. We’re also asking for you all to make a point to get on official WWII Online Discord servers (voice communications), which can be found at www.wwiionline.com/discord. 

Meanwhile the RATS are continuing the big move from Dallas to Portland, among several essential development items like 64-bit implementation and the UI redo. We also have some great production work underway. See you in the field troopers - SALUTE!

WWII Online’s Portland Move (Update)

XOOMThe move to Portland is well underway with servers being configured here locally, our new colocation (server housing facility) established and our new internet service and cross-connect pulled to our cabinet and ready to go. We have a couple of very basic pictures to show you today as installation of network and server equipment approaches quickly. This has been made possible thanks to all of those who participated in the recent fundraiser initiative, and to that end I’d like to thank you and share this update to show your contributions being put to work. All of us at Cornered Rat Software would like to wish you and your families a very Happy Thanksgiving.
