An excerpt from the desk of the Axis Commander-in-Chief:  Again another exciting week for team axis as we race toward the coast.  Our Kriegsmarine forces have been doing an outstanding job securing the northern coast and keeping the enemy on their toes.  Luftwaffe pilots have been bombing, strafing and keeping the air clear of the enemy, while our Heer soldats and Panzerkorps have been crushing the Allied defenses. 

Joker007 and I are in the VERY early stages of planning an epic special event.  We are calling it the
Battle of the RATS:  JOKER007 vs. TOPD.  We are both pretty excited about this we should have the ground rules and force structure settled this weekend.  More information on this event will be announced next week including a forum where you can review the event outline and select your side and unit type.  For you old timers, we are trying to recreate the legendary Shilling vs. Badger event from years ago.  So, if you have any information on that event like screen shots, force composition, rules and the like, please send them to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Campaign 53 is still in doubt.  I know, I know, spawn delays for the axis have been consistent for a few days now but I still have faith in the Allied forces that they can make a turn around and still make this a campaign for the history books. 

FROM THE DESK OF THE AXIS COMMANDER IN CHIEF:

S! Team Axis,

Again another exciting week for team axis as we race toward the coast.  Our Kriegsmarine forces have been doing an outstanding job securing the northern coast and keeping the enemy on their toes.  Luftwaffe pilots have been bombing, strafing and keeping the air clear of the enemy, while our Heer soldats and Panzerkorps have been crushing the Allied defenses. 

Yes my friends we can smell the salty sea of the English Channel and nothing will get in our way to victory.  Allied defenses have been very strong in multiple battles with good teamwork and communication which has kept us on our toes and letting us always remember that the individual township victories do not come cheap and we have to redouble our efforts and coordination in order to be successful.  Our enemy is far from giving up, so it is up to all of us to keep pushing forward no matter the cost.  There will be no rest until the forced capitulation of our enemy.

Player of the Week:
Ezrelay: When he is not sapping enemy fire bases, he’s sapping the enemies’ tanks in the field or holding up an Allied advance with nothing but rifle and cold, hard Axis determination.  Ezrelay is a dedicated team Axis player and not only secures the area around him for his fellow Axis forces, but ensures battles are intense and fun for all.  Thank you Ezrelay for all you do in the field for team Axis. S! Alphie
 
Officer of the Week:
Chokk: Chokk is one of those Axis officers that are the glue that holds team Axis together.  His playtime usually puts him off radar of most Axis forces and indeed a lot of recognition, but he is there constantly helping team Axis push forward with his knowledge as map OIC and leader to the Axis forces on attacks and defenses.  Chokk is the real deal when it comes to fulfilling the duties of the best OKW officers and this recognition is long overdue.  Thank you Chokk for your wisdom and leadership in the OKW.  S! Alphie

We will not be handed a simple victory, this our enemy has shown.  So, remember to follow the basics, keep the fire bases under our control, deny the enemy supply, capture and guard your depots and bunkers and use the shock and awe of the lighting fast blitzkrieg forces at your disposal.  We will route our enemy from the field.  Nothing stands in the way of team Axis. 

S!
-Alphie, Axis CINC
