    Okay, so you paid $70 for the Full Game + Early Access + Beta + Alpha. We aren't a huge team. We don't have hundreds of programmers and employees to catalog bugs and report them. We can't push builds and remodel things within the hour. We need a little more time to work on these things, just a little though We will have a post explaining how the Alpha is going to work soon so keep an eye out for that The Alpha will stretch across multiple weekends from Friday to Saturday. You'll have three full days of play over the weekend and a hard focussed time for you to report bugs. Instead of a few hours a night midweek. Then that will give us 4 days (mon, tues, wed, thurs) to implement changes and push a build for the next weekend. I am sure it will go fast don't worry!

    That cod2 rifles mod on COD4 was amazing, don't shit on a game when you havent played it yet. You're basing it off some footage that has already been proved as a bit faster paced & easy compared to the actual game (due to POV's experience in the game compared to other devs). Honestly, play the Alpha & Beta first before you start crying - please. I can tell you 100% that this game is what A LOT of people want AND need. CS:GO lacks quality fun movement & Overwatch just doesn't cater to individual skill as opposed to COD4 Promod. This is what the majority of players want, everyone from the COD competitive community in AUS / NZ will back it and Europe was HUGE at peak for COD4 Promod. The devs have the formula sorted now they just need great execution which I believe will happen. I hope this game becomes HUGE & POPULAR as it is what FPS should be - fun, quality enjoyable movement, skill-based aim and quality competitive play. If what I've mentioned above is not for you, maybe this game just might not be for you.

    Hey guys, Just got back to our Airbnb after the busy 1st full day at the event and my feet are killing, so just dropping in to read through all these posts. Some great feedback/comments from you guys with only a few namecalls earlier in the thread so we're going pretty good so far! As a heads up, the next few days will be pretty hectic for us and myself Joe and Tuna will be swamped, so just letting you know at some point next week I'll write up a summary post with some reactions from us about the feedback etc. It really is useful for us to hear what you like and dislike about the game, I know some things are down to actual game feel so if you're unlucky to not be at EGX there are certain things you just can't get from the gameplay footage just yet but Alpha is just around the corner. Everyone who has played so far has got that the game is in pre-alpha, super WIP. But the key thing is that we have the base that we can build upon with polish, bug fixes and more content. In general, development is still early but we're at the point where it's all coming together, so we can get more 'smaller' dev updates out to you guys and get everyone more involved than ever before. Thanks for you patience these last few months, you guys have been awesome. Anyway, need to get some sleep. If anyone is heading down to EGX Tomorrow/Saturday, make sure to come early, queues can get long! - Howard

    Hey guys As you have probably seen we have made the personal reputation counter visible on your profiles. We have done this to encourage constructive and interesting posts whilst limiting argumentative or derogatory comments. We felt there has been little repercussions for these actions in the past so now you will have your rep public for everyone else to see! Consider the toxicity or the relevance of your post before you post it and rise up the upvote leader board. We are considering resetting the rep and allowing it to start from now but we may just leave it how it is. Enjoy!

    Said the guy who want to see so much features from CSGO and would like a CSGO WW2 mod ! For your information, COD2 and COD4 were not console port. Now, I read -124 ! He is growing up but in the wrong side.

    I can see why your ''forum reputation'' is currently at -116 LOL. In a fast-paced game like COD, like Battalion, having inventory nades slows things down and makes things clunky. In these games I want to be able to throw my grenade as fast as possible, 1 click of a button. I don't want to pull out my nade, wait for the animation to finish and THEN throw it. It slows me down, which is not what I want in fast-paced games. CS:GO is a much much slower game for example and it still feels clunky to me there. Also, please stop acting like a 12 year old every time someone disagrees with you, grow up man. (Unless you are actually 12 or have some sort of disorder, then I apologize, friend).

    So you guys are more concentrated about graphics, skins and whatever else that makes game visual nice? I really don't care so much of these things. I want Battalion 1944 to succeed in E-Sport, to compete with CS-GO and also have a great feeling in this game.

    as far as i can tell, most armies around the world have a service number system. aussies called it a service number. canadians had a regimental number. nazis had a membership number. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Service_number it's a tiny detail but how easy would it be to give each player a unique service number? maybe the first 100 numbers could be allocated to the dev team.

    This could also be a fantastic way to reward early kickstarter backers / alpha testers and so on. Unique low digit service numbers or somthing similiar

    Once again ToonBe you are against an idea without providing a valuable reason as to why and attacking a certain group of people. Can you please just explain as to why you disagree with something(because its retarded is not a valuable reason) and stop attacking people while you are at it.

    Envy is your second name, lol I recognize FrosteR from promod pro-scene and i'm sure i'm not the only one. Does anyone recognize your name? Are you experienced enough to question simple and good mechanics from cod series such as grenade throwing, weapon switching etc.? People collect many things: post stamps, cards, weapon replicas, old cars even. All you collect are downvotes on BAT44 forums

    Sounds like someone is jealous that I got paid to play games and won some money. Meanwhile you are stuck at Legendary Eagle Master in CS:GO matchmaking and crying on forums... hmmm Also I'm pretty sure you get downvoted because all you post is either immature stuff or suggesting the devs to create a WW2 mod for CS:GO. Because if it isn't in CS:GO it must be shit.

    Nice way to introduce your self on these forums Think you should try the game before you trashtalk it... Welcome btw

    Hi all, This is my first post here, I won't bother introducing myself. However I will say I am looking forward to this game and hope it brings back an FPS game that scratches the itch that COD4 left behind. Anyway on with my idea.. I believe one of the most overlooked aspects of competitive gaming is the ability to find XvX matches of like minded people. It seems modern games have taken an internal match making style, divided by a point based system. While this "generally" can work, I think it sometimes misses the mark. Looking For [LF] channels/posts/requests can only be found on forums or sites external to the game, finding the best ones can be difficult, fragmented,tedious and seems to only spread by word of mouth, I feel this curbs people wanting to dive into team tryouts and prevents teams picking up players. - One of the major reasons I have been put of my alot of recent games, there is no "personality" to just being thrown into a game and accepting a friend request. My suggestion is to implement a user friendly IRC chat client so people can connect to channels without having to scramble through forum posts to find one that suits there needs, this will allow clans to have personal channels, community channels such as the legendary cod4.wars, professional only channels as ( Correct me if im wrong) Tek9's was. Thanks.

    I would like to see that soloQ-rank names have something to do with war as general and they wouldn't be just official ranks but rather something which would indicate how long and how well someone have done in battlefield. Something what you could think that any member of platoon could say about someone or describe someone. Also some kind of indication about order of them as in CS:GO (Silver 1-4 etc.). The Legend War hero Elite Distinguished Veteran Seasoned Veteran Veteran War Adept Battle Hardened Battle Scarred Battle Proven Distinguished Serviceman Seasoned Serviceman Serviceman Replacement Man Greenhorn Something along these lines...

    does this mean there is a confirmed situation where there won't be a selection for a grenade but a click/throw button for the grenades? I mean of course we will find out what it is in the alpha and those who already played know....but it would be interesting to talk about. Ok...ToonBE...amma try to help you here....people have given up on you m8 and i really don't want to see people just egg you on just to get you pissed. Some people are asking you genuine questions and you are overreacting to almost every one of them. What is marked in RED is the wrong thing you are saying. What is marked in BLUE is the right thing to think about. What is marked in GREEN is absolutely neutral and valued in the forums. You have your own personal feelings and i agree with you that you should share them but it is HOW you share them that counts. @xXclusiivE used to blow up on the forums quite a bit but he has done a great job and is, always was, a valued member here on the forum. Even with your reputation being in the negative i value your opinions and i see through the outbursts. Your points are valid but they are highly personal. That isn't something you can bring into a valid argument. You must EXCLUDE your feelings or say that you are voicing your own opinion and if you are voicing your opinion on something you CANNOT react the way you do if someone disagrees. Take 10-15 seconds and think about it, don't act on impulse and post a hate message just because someone didn't agree. Please, just keep it neutral and civil There was a person who was purely "competitive" and attacked every neutral post i made or anything that was opposite what that person "thought". I messaged them it was official that they would stick to their own opinions that were strictly to the competitive side of the game. So fine, no problemo. I am probably known here on the forums as the "Devils Advocate" because i like to play both sides of a conversation or, in reality, w/e side is losing i go on it and try to defend it to get a conversation of WHY the winning side is winning i got a few down votes for it, but its ok....worth it! But this IS NOT what you are doing. So in conclusion, you have valid opinions but you cannot react to people disagreeing with your opinions. Bring more fact than feelings in your posts.

    Exactly, if you want to have advantages so bad (what i dont get at all in a oldschool shooter) do it in the form of utility (smokes,nades)
  31. 2 points
    Exactly! I dont get why you guys want any spawn advantage or stamina advantage, dont you want a fair playground and let skill and teamwork decide who wins? Spawn advantage and/or stamina advantage feels like a perk for me, and that is the last thing we want in this game. We want a oldschool shooter that is based on skill and teamwork not being influenced by advantages imo, and if you are winning you have the advantage of momentum and that should be it. period.

    "IRC"-chat ingame works well in HOTS at least, can't find why not in Battalion as well. If you want to use a separate third-party software, then I'd suggest using Discord as well.

    it's interesting how people took such different views away from the kickstarter. i've seen the new gameplay footage and played and watched other people play the game at EGX last week and it was pretty close to what i expected comparing it to the kickstarter vid. i do accept the kickstarter put more emphasis on authenticity that is less evident in the gameplay but i couldn't judge the size of the maps from the kickstarter footage. the soldiers were also sprinting in the kickstarter footage so i'm surprised some people didn't expect it to be in the game. also, a lot of the kickstarter was in 3rd person whereas the new footage is in 1st person. to me the game always looks faster in 1st person because the fov is narrower. as for the jumping, there was none in the kickstarter vid so i can see why it's inclusion surprised some people but to be perfectly honest all of the footage was playing TDM. how many people play SnD jumping around the map? you'd be instantly taken out. just because strafe jumping is in the game doesn't mean that is the only effective playstyle.

    I honestly understand all the points you're making on this and if this were a WW2 sim I'd be right with you. However, in regard to the bits I've bolded from your post, it's simple. Don't overthink it. This is an arcadey FPS. Things are the way the are for gameplay reasons. If you want to get down to the lifelike conditions over gameplay, where does it end? For example, a handgun could kill you at a decent range if it hits you in the leg or arm, just because it happens to hit a major artery. You're obviously not going to put that sort of a mechanic in an FPS like Battalion because it's simply not fun. Some guy shoots me in the leg from 50m away with a Luger but I die because the physics engine has determined that that bullet has gone straight through my femoral artery. We all have our own version of the perfect FPS but a line has to be drawn somewhere and tbh the vision put to us by Bulkhead on Kickstarter just doesn't show me that they are going to be going for the sort of realism you describe.

    Player Prestige Level: [Private] [Specialist] [Corporal] [Sergeant] [Lieutenant] [Captain] [Major] [LT.Colonel] [Colonel] [Brigadier General] [Major General] [LT.General] [General] Extract of the prestige rotation: Player Prestige Rotation: 01 I 02 II 03 III 04 IV 05 V ... 50 L ... 95 XCV 96 XCVI 97 XCVII 98 XCVIII 99 XCIX 100 C Rank is done by the KDR System, KDR system is so much better in CSGO compared to this new win loss crap. With the prestige system it adds the roman numeral numbers along with the rank after you've met the criteria you set down. Highest rank will be "General C" Hope you like it, bit unique

    Not if allies and axis have separate team colors (green and gray for example), like this: And only make colors appear on the scoreboard, like this: When you kill an enemy, it would show the colors: ("You killed" would always be colored white) When you kill your teammate, it would always show "TEAMMATE" as red like this: I think it makes your nick and your clan feel unique: I'm sorry, but I don't find this to have a big effect on gameplay. I only find it refreshing But if you have made up your mind, I'm not gonna argue.

    Thx for your respons. You make valid points. If regen has to be a thing, let us all think out of the box on how to implement it once we get the chance to test the first version of the system. I feel you can make the regen system a lot more interesting than simple regen to full health over x amounts of seconds. Maybe fall damage regenerates faster than fire damage. Damage from a grenade does not regen so it can also be used as a tactical weapon (besides just killing potential). Etc..

    You mean strafe jumps and nade jumps? I would say to keep it realistic on this particular matter. Places that should not be reachable / not intended to be reachable for the sake of map balancing should not been made reachable by the use of these kind of tricks. Maps have been made with a certain idea behind them and trick jumps done with 'boosters' (talking about the player lift or nade lift) thus taking them to places outside the defined map limits should not be possible imho.

    Rank 1 Rank 2 Rank 3 ..... etc etc I m not a fan of rank/level system because it creates difference between players and with time they are playing only for ranking up instead to just play for the FUN. But it is my humble opinion. I m maybe too old for this. Peace.
