  1. Sooooo, they bailed on their own "official" forum because a few people told the truth and hurt there feelings and they only want positive input because that's how you build a player base? errrm no but ok if you say so. 160 player peak is awesome, hope they make more skins and loot boxes to keep them interested Two key words here "bullshit" & "stupid" both words describe Battalion 1944 as it stands today and your attitude toward a fellow disappointed gamer who quite rightly shares his own views which incidentally seems to match the views of some 16,200 other players who also ditched Battalion...... Lets hope the next update brings back quite a few more players but Bulkhead need to step up their game considerably for that to happen.
  2. Actually they haven't left the forums, they just don't post here but the question is why and im sure they are mature enough to take criticism and learn from it instead of turning a blind eye to it. More interaction on these forums from an appointed spokes person from Bulkhead would have gone a long way. Seriously, what update? Nothing for 3 months at all, no patches for an EA game is deadly and they announce an update in July and we don't know what issues that will bring either so 4 months for an update the players lose interest and move on its bad business for Bulkhead and bad for the customer base. We have heard all the excuses from Bulkhead from day one and have taken that info onboard but it is just getting old now because the bottom line is they promised something they couldn't deliver and most if not all bought into this game after watching the trailer, the actual game play was nothing like it, make your own mind up about that. Just to add, im not a hater just a very very disappointed player who really wanted this game to work for all and wanted the dev team to listen earlier on, do updates regularly or at least on a monthly basis and at least reassure people on this site, post something even if its to show they are reading these forums.
  3. Actually Zane Bulkhead said they released EA early because they needed the funds then turned their attention to Esports so one can only assume they used the money to push lans and esport stuff. That is how it looks so people will comment on that, same as the latest update stuff, looks like they are spending more time on shinny stuff and animated things rather than put effort into making the game decent then add all the flashing lights after.
  4. That pretty much sums it up, can't agree more. The game, their attitude toward the (what were) fans generally just sucks. In short, you reap what you sow and Bulkhead are getting back what they put in.
  5. Yeah i hear you, im 50 and played CoD Vanilla, UO, CoD2 and CoD4 in leagues, CoD4 being the main one as a clan so Battalion was our next clan/league game but alas it didn't work out but with that said there is still 1% of me which thinks Battalion can still make it. Personally im not interested in shitty skins or fancy things like loot crates and crap just a pure game with accurate hit reg which can be played as fair as possible. They might be listening now but their main aim was Lans, probably for sponsorship deals or something but it would also be nice for the team to show some love to there members on this "official" forum, that would help us and them
  6. Problem with that is all my clan members have now ditched Battalion and are already talking about Black Ops 4 and the new Battlefield so it will be hard getting them to give Battalion another go which is disappointing as we put so much hope into this game being the next one we could play in leagues again. I think Bulkhead have missed their main target audience tbh but time will tell. Indeed it does and the only way this will happen is if Bulkhead start listening and make a game the players wanted in the first place.
  7. Thanks for the info, i stopped playing after the March patch
  8. Pretty much the same as this site then 😂😂😂😂 Are we talking about Battalion or another game because i don't recall any updates since the last one in March? I also thought Battalion update was in June not July?
  9. I don't feel the jumping around alone was an issue, well not for me but the accuracy the jump shot produced was. It made a a minority feel all pro all of a sudden 🙄 Bulkheads attitude toward the player base was a huge problem though and not giving what they promised was another problem and late and/or no updates in a timely manner pisses players off as they will just move on. Everyone understands Bulkhead is a small team but lack of communication and lack of transparency is simply inexcusable, makes you wonder what were/are Bulkheads intentions from the start? After a very short time i got the impression they just needed funding for their own project which was at the point i noticed a backtrack in what they promised the game would be and how it turned out. Traveling all over attending lans only hurt them in the long run as they tried to promote the game to wrong audience, the people who funded the game got some thrown together thing which turns out to be unplayable for most but that is on them. Bulkhead had a massive opportunity to bring the PC community together again and make it big but they blew that from day one and all we have is a glitchy csgo incarnation of shit. Hate to be no negative after being so positive in the beginning but thanks to Bulkhead i can only be negative about Battalion and i would never purchase anything from Bulkhead again.
  10. Lets face it, they had the backers money then tossed the backers to one side and started aiming their vision of the game toward the so called pro's which in my opinion was a dirty move. I luckily only paid £10 for the game but it's the backers i really feel for because i know quite a few paid a lot of money to see the game progress how they wanted it but Bulkhead had other ideas which have obviously failed and the reason for that failure is they didn't listen.

    Pretty much gives you an idea of their attitude and why the game has failed.
  12. Been away for a week so i come on to catch up and see what progress has been made and to even more disappointment i see not only the game but the forums are dead. I really have no idea who they are developing the game for now, 99 players peak WTF? The dev team didn't listen and wanted to develop something they thought the masses wanted and now it clearly shows who is right. You guys might as well call it a day, you won't get back any player base as you missed that and you take too long to fix anything, people won't wait around forever due to more interesting games coming out. Quick note on the meaning of development just in case you forgot.......
  13. Yup, beyond disappointing but what is worse is the way Bulkhead treat their customers but in reflection what was the fan base has now but all diminished. Great Job!

    Main problem is the devs don't listen and don't care what we think..... unlike when they were pushing for cash they were really friendly at that point. Shame on them because they knew what people wanted and what was missing for clans and leagues which is why they promised what they did but it seems they had other ideas and have basically killed what they wanted to create and crushed all and any hope of clan revival. I was so happy we had a Dev team almost on my doorstep, well 15 mins away, creating a game for clan play but then it was clear to see what was happening If they didn't hype the game so much there wouldn't have been over 16k disappointed players and how they think they will be pulling this back at the end of year is bs. In reality we got bent over and shafted in exactly the same way as we do all the time.

    Dedicated servers vs Rented servers

    If you have a good dedicated server there should be no difference in pings unless your running a server from home or a dedi with low specs, Virtual servers etc etc.

    Ah well!

    Such a shame tbh and im thinking of doing the same thing since i haven't bothered with Battalion since 17th March so might as well free up some hard drive space.

    If anything it's good to see someone from the dev team posting here as well as other Battalion sites, maybe that's a first step in the right direction but maybe too little too late? only time will tell.

    HAHAHAHA i was thinking the same thing not so long ago. Seems the devs will lean to the side where praise is given rather than have to deal with any constructive criticism from people who wanted this game to work for the long term, it is easier to please easily pleased sheep.

    They keep saying they know what they are doing but generally people who continually say that don't know or care what anyone wants other than themselves. Real shame really because so many clans and players were looking forward to a game everyone could play together again but no it is as clear as day all they wanted from the general public was the money to fund "their" vision and goals.

    Great! 100 players will be able to play modded maps depending on the time scale Map Tools are released. How about Mod Tools?

    It is probably due to forum members here are more vocal and open in criticism which they don't like but that statement alone is a kick in the teeth to all here more so the kickstarter and backer guys. All their bug fixes etc posted are just repetitive, same things worded differently nothing more. Bulkhead do not like criticism, they do not want to change their game to suit the masses but they did change what was promised from the beginning just to get everyone's money to enable them to produce a LAN game for their own project interest. At least Dick Turpin had the courtesy of wearing a mask.
  25. I have just read a huge post on my clans website with regards to Battalion i then come here to Battalions official forums and nothing has been posted? I have no idea where our clan member got the post from but i was very disappointed not to have seen it on here......
