An excerpt from the desk of the Axis Commander-in-Chief: TEAM AXIS:  The last week I was forced to stay in my bunker for safety due to lack of recon on Allied forces movements; and therefore my administration thought it would be better to hold me inside the bunker rather than anywhere on the field. We had a little breakout in south this last week and we routed three divisions. Good job to those planning and to all players who were a part of the operation.

 

My first report as Assistant Game Manager with TOPD, and I can tell you that this game is best seen from both sides.  I have played with both axis and allied players, talking about their equipment and this one-of-a-kind game.  Many players talk about their equipment and see the other side’s equipment as being stronger or different and somehow…better.  What most of these players don’t have:  Experience playing the other side’s equipment in a real campaign. 

How would I describe playing the other side?  Well, there is 50% of the game you haven’t seen, there are people just like you and your squad mates playing on the other side who are just as good and just as bad as you.  But there are aircraft, tanks, trucks, guns, and planes that ARE different and make you play the game in a VERY different way.  Each equipment set is so realistically modeled, that this game is completely shaped by veterans using different equipment to the advantages modeled in that side’s kit (ships are identical for both sides). 

Why does your enemy act different?  Because they have to – their equipment is different, requiring different tactics and those tactics may even add up to a different strategy entirely for the other side. 

Summary:  “We have met the enemy, and they is us.”  --Pogo.   It’s amazing to try both sides, and I encourage players and squads to do this and have ‘fun’.  It’s far better than any ‘patch’ can be.S! Axis forces

The front has moved a bit west some places but allied forces have also forced us back a few towns. The KriegsMarine (KM) still strong in Zeelands after a very good recapture in north to get supply lines open again to Vlissingen. Well done all involved.
 
The Luftwaffe (LW) keep hunting EA and helping ground forces by carpet bombing on our targets!
 
Reports from the fields are talking about high morale and a very high spirit and I see that every time I visit the frontline. You are doing well, all men and woman of the Axis side!

To pick an officer and a player for the officer and player of the week is always hard. This week my decision fell on two players who are always doing some of the "dirty" jobs to ensure that others can have fun!

 

Officer of the week:
Wafflez: You are the Axis team officer of the week!
 
Congrats!

Player of the week:
Demon340: a player that plays all 3 branches and is all about being a positive, happy player, helping out everywhere, you are the Axis team player of the week!


 
Congrats!
