DOCCongratulations to the British and French forces for their victory in Campaign 47! Looks like the Allied players have answered the Axis 2 in a row with 2 in a row of their own. I guess that makes Campaign 48 to come ... the payback campaign! We'll be resetting the servers today for intermission, with the v1.29 Open Beta currently in full swing we won't be doing anything special for the campaign break this time. Maybe this is your chance to have a squiz at the Open Beta for the upcoming v1.29 release now that you won't be in hard core campagin mode for a couple of days.

DOCWell that was a stunning turn around. After one of the longest campaigns ever fought (2nd longest on record) the Allies came out of the blocks at a thousand miles an hour and blitzed their way into Germany like a Saturn V rocket mounted on a flat top rail car. While not the shortest campaign ever, it is the second shortest since the "campaign era" of the game began and shows how dynamic and unpredictable the game can be. Congratulations to the Allied forces !

DOCWe will be resetting the game servers for the start of Campaign 46 on Thursday the 25th of September.  That's tomorrow folks! This means that we roll into the office and begin organizing all the scripts and file uploads that are required to run all the backend stuff and database configurations that make the game work dynamically thoughout the campaign as it evolves. This can take up to 2 hours or so, then we will take the game servers offline to reset all values for the start of the campaign. When the server clusters first come back online, we will close the gameworld while we do the online testing and validation to ensure all is configured as it should be, which is a fairly complex series of checks we have to run, since the game is actually a pretty complex beast by the standards of other MMOG's.

The German armed forces of Battleground Europe have won Campaign number 45. At 88 days long, Campaign 45 slides into second place on the "longest campaigns in the games history" list, just pipping Campaign 13 (87 days) at the post for this position. Congratulations to the Axis players for their hard fought victory, and kudos to the Allied players who took the fight up to their opponents in the hard fought fashion they are known for. It was a fun and interesting campaign!

All game server processes have been running continuously since July 7th (56 days). In order to allow us to capture some data from the processes and to apply some minor host updates, we will be bringing the live servers down for 10-20 minutes at 11am CDT on Tuesday September 2nd 2008. The host update includes several minor tweaks such as changes to resupply truck ranges and rates, and some minor tweaks to chat.
