New Patch!! New Towns!! New Campaign!! New Rat!! New Friends!! New experiences!!

This is going to be a great week in game. The changes will keep the dynamics of the game at all time high logins and create even more fun than before. Change is great! Especially when the community is so dedicated to the same game over the years!

All of the efforts that we create for all of you seem to be well taken and we try so hard to ensure your experience doesn't remain dull or monotonous. New challenges and increased participation in game pushes the fun factor to record highs!

Only one, but very important announcement from Topd and I this week....

JAMMYMAN........... yes it is in all caps. Rick "Jammyman" Kendall has been a member of this community since the beginning. He has taken his "hobby" and climbed up the ladder in excellence. Never a biased cell in his body. He always wants to ensure fun for everyone regardless of side or squad. He was a fantastic Commander in Chief a few CinC's back, and now has been working hard with the Community Managers and PR team to keep the realism events interesting, fast paced and fun! He is also going to be working along side of us to create intermission scenarios so that even though the campaigns may be over, the fun doesn't stop.

When you see him in game, please thank him for helping us continue making this game one of the best!

Congrats JAMMYMAN!

A quick bio from him:

I've been a member of this community since July 11th 2001. I learned of WWII Online from the Gaming Group I was, and still am a member of from the PC Game Combat Flight Simulator. That was my 1st PC Game, a Flight Sim. I was Hooked and I wanted more. I wanted a Larger Playerbase and to Fight Real Players and not a Program.

When I loaded WWII Online and Updated the Several patches that took place in the 1st month, I spawned in and Joined a Mission ........ Grabbed a Stuka, went off and Bombed and FB and it was ..... "WOW" ..... this is it, this is what I'm Looking for, this is the Game for me. I've been here as a member ever since.

When RDP Bombing was introduced to WWII Online, I was ecstatic. I was on cloud 9 because that's what I Like about the Real World War, the Bombers. It was not long after that I was asked if I would like to Join the GHC (as it was called then) and Command the RDP Bombing aspect of the GHC Luftwaffe. As time passed I found myself reaching the Higher HC levels of command and eventually became the CinC of the Axis Team.

I have a Passion for writing Combat Scenarios and expressed a desire to join the Realism Events Team, which has led me to what I do now, Writing Combat Scenarios to maybe enhance the Game Play of those Community members who wish to go to a higher level of a gaming experience.

The Realism Events Team have an Infantry and an Armor event in the planning stages. Watch for the Announcements as they are Scheduled to Play.

Allied Report:

Greetings Team Allies!!!!

Well, we have reached intermission and a new horizon is in front of us. We have a lot of new changes coming to us from CRS that will add some new challenges and some great new opportunities in Campaign 45. We must take ownership of the fact that we are Team Allies and we are capable of achieving anything we focus on with full determination as a Team!!!

We will begin the new campaign as a full scale offensive. I have such absolute confidence in Team Allies that we have named campaign 45 "Operation Busted Knuckle". Details of our initial plans will be made available to all of you for the beginning of the map.

At map start Team Allies will be Busting their Knuckles on the doors of every cp or ab bunker as we move towards our objectives. We will be Busting our Knuckles on our keyboards as we communicate to each other as Team Allies players and officers.

I look forward again to being beside you in Campaign 45 in support and in field as Team Allies regains their momentum, strengthens their determination, and reunites as One Team......Team Allies!!!!

Allied Player of the Week
This week’s Allied Player of the Week is Skee53. Skee53 is a long time dedicated member of Team Allies. Skee53 is the type of Allied player who will be one of the first to show up at any attack or defense if he is needed. He plays whenever he has the opportunity whether low pop or high pop in support of our Team. Never does he worry about the results to him but always to his Team of Allies he so much enjoys. It is with great pleasure I award the Player of the Week to Skee53. Wear this ribbon with pride as you have earned it.

Allied Officer of the Week
This week’s Allied Officer of the Week is Kilemall. Kilemall has long been a loyal member of Team Allies and has served in many positions within the AHC from a field officer in the Army to a valued member of the CinC staff DDOP team. He has supported in the game with outstanding leadership and out of the game as a valued advisor. His wisdom has helped many other officers and many players in their enjoyment of the game!!! It is with great honor that I present Kilemall the Allied Officer of the Week ribbon. Wear this ribbon with pride as you have earned it.

VICTORY!! *pops champagne*

I had the pleasure of participating in the final battle for the last town of the campaign, attacking Le Crotoy from the north we rebuilt the bridge and I was able to get an MS across and park it near the NAB, a massive assault ensued on the AB, I yelled "ALLIES!! YOU ARE SURROUNDED! COME OUT WITH YOUR HANDS UP! MANOS ARRIBA!!" but they chose to fight to the last man and we obliged them, as I capped the final bunker of the game someone just 10 seconds quicker than I capped it first, GJ

Always an active leader harrisc1 is the officer you'll find taking BC, running MS's, leading attacks and making sure everyone has fun
