    Active Battalion servers.

    I ran three servers a while back but the effort was fruitless when the population dropped so i shut them down. If anyone want's to rent a Battalion server DM me .50p a slot GL in trying to populate your servers.

    Servers!

    But we get cheats in any online game but the difference would be it would give the server admins a free hand to kick and ban cheats rather than having to tolerate them until you leave the server only to be able to report that player through some ineffective reporting tool. Problem with cheaters are, they will always be around, it's how they are dealt with that matters.

    Yes CoD4 and CoD WaW if memory serves me correctly but the only thing that ruined being able to host your own ranked server were the guys who managed to run fast ranked servers which was a thing with CoD WaW. If you were able to host a ranked server with Battalion i feel this would help pick the game up, for example players from everywhere and anywhere in the world could join a local ranked server and not have to rely on BH hosting any.

    Servers!

    I was under the impression you couldn't rank up on your own server as was evident when i had 3 servers up. We found it pointless playing on those due to not ranking so battled with the official servers losing connection and the rest of the hassle. It would have made sense if you could rank on a stock server at least as Soldat Ryan quite rightly pointed out "there would have been less issues with connections at EA launch" Maybe with full release in 2019 the above could be the case but for now running your own server for other than matches or training etc it is just pointless.

    Servers!

    I get the bot and player thing but i am pretty sure you can't rank on your own server whether it's set to Arcade or anything else.

    I thought that meant fill your server with Bots not human players?

    Bulkhead Interactive Update

    LOL, if i had any you could have them with pleasure Mate, my hopes were so high for this game and that of my clan. This game was supposed to have got everyone together again, scrimming and leagues etc just like the good old days but for some reason this game just turned everyone in to something i just can't describe. In all the years i have played online games i have never had the misfortune to see such a huge divide in players and i blame BH for this. Why, you may ask...... well if BH made the game for the community first the game would have naturally evolve in to esports but because it was done backwards you got all the pro player wannabes because they could strafe and jump and shoot in mid air which made them feel 733t which in turn made these guys think they better than everyone else who didn't want strafe jumping, jump shot 360 midair head shots. I may reinstall the game when it is released just to see how it all turned out but for now, for me personally, Battalion has been uninstalled but always will be remembered for the game it could have been and the game to have brought back together a world wide community again.

    Bulkhead Interactive Update

    Probably, but at the same time some people (like myself) will give up on the game just because 3 - 4 months to wait for an update is far too long. I'm sure it will all come good in the end for the remainers

    Bulkhead Interactive Update

    Hope you understand I mean the negative people (and they do not play the game, they are haters) I love everyone playing!!! But it really hurts to see you say they never stuck to anything they have said or promised.. You have the right to feel that way but they are so honest and imo are just doing what they have promised that it just hurts.. Why is gaming world (or internet) so harsh these days..? I'm not a hater and i generally agree with what you say and maybe i was a bit quick to read in to what you said but i felt a bit cheated as i was looking forward to MU3 but when i read it wasn't to be i just thought f**k it. I just wish i could share your enthusiasm and trust me i have tried but no matter what Bulkhead say they always change it somewhere down the line. Part of me see's what they are trying to do but the other part of me can't help but think they have used everyone's trust and money to build a business for their own gains just to leave their loyal supporters behind but that's just my personal feeling and now i shall move on to another game and will not play Battalion just simply out of principle. You have to ask yourself, how many others are thinking the same thing? Maybe it's not just about the game, maybe it's the way Bulkhead conduct themselves as a company which hit's a nerve with people who knows. And yes people can be harsh on the internet but that's what happens when you make promise's to thousand's but then cut them off and deal with discord members members only. Think how many formats have BH stopped using..... anyway, i hope your enthusiasm carries you and the 20 other players through to Feb 2019 because by then BH will have another EA game for release and Battalion will just be "the project" GL mate.

    Bulkhead Interactive Update

    That's a bit of an insult tbh. What's wrong with the other current people? I had 2.5 games the other night, the .5 was when i got the "lost connection to host" error message so i didn't try playing again. Point i am trying to make here is, how can you get excited about a game in this state and a Dev team who keep moving the goal post's at every opportunity. These guys have never stuck to anything they have said or promised so if they think im waiting until Feb 2019 for a patch then i'm out. GL with the player count, it will only get worse between now and 2019 LOL

    Bulkhead Interactive Update

    Well, what's more to say? Definitely uninstalling this game now, was only waiting for MU3 but now that's not happening there really is no point. Good bye Bulkhead and Battalion.

    More weapons!

    I agree but the devs see it differently i guess.

    More weapons!

    Yes that and nothing to suggest what has been completed and what is left to do. No mention of anything really which is why the roadmap might as well be disregarded. I mean, how hard is it for a dev to make a post here once every month just to keep people interested and up to date instead leaving their customers hanging in the wind?
  17. Excel

    More weapons!

    The road map has not been updated for whatever reason so all we can do is guess. Judging by the road map which shows Q1, Q2 etc and EA was in February so i would say four quarters equals three months apart so we should be seeing Q3 update within the next week or so. Q4 should be around December 2018 according to the roadmap but i guess it's all going to be late now so i suggest we just disregard the roadmap altogether.

    Major Update 3

    I thought MU3 was Q3 on the roadmap because on Q4 it says "It's been a full year blah blah blah" so i assume Q4 will be end of January maybe but what i meant was does anyone know what date MU3 it is out? They haven't even bothered to update the roadmap and leaving people hanging is not a way forward as they get bored and move on.

    Major Update 3

    Well, he is clutching at straws with regards to the player base as it currently stands so i guess he is testing the waters whether to go back to how it was and take criticism or not communicate at all and lose the remaining players and the last ounce of interest this game has left. I don't know tbh if their approach to be open created the anger in people making them argumentative or whether it was just Brammers arrogance but it has been quieter since they kept the doors closed and got on with things. In the end all people want is what they were offered/promised which was a good smooth game to replace CoD2/CoD4 rather than a CS:GO looking game. Does anyone know when MU3 is going to roll out?

    RIP the official forum?

    Cheers mate, No jumping and all the extra rubbish is how we like it and play. I will put a post up on our forum and see what interest we get Thanks again.

    RIP the official forum?

    No we haven't disbanded, the guys were looking forward to Battlefield V but the Beta turned out bad then they were looking to The Division 2 for next year and Post Scriptum was another option which again is an EA game with mixed reviews so that was a no go, there doesn't seem to be a lot out there for clans. We are playing anything and everything at the moment, mostly old games we have in our libraries but Battalion was going to be our main game, whether or not we pick this game back up is yet to be seen. We had three Battalion servers running from EA but i shut them down as the player base declined and we found there was no point in playing on a server you can't rank up on. I'm like you at the moment, "just riding the roller coaster" see where it stops

    RIP the official forum?

    Hopefully this will bring back player interest in the game, the only problem i see is that too many people have lost interest in the game and will definitely not return. MOD tools should be a must asap for those gifted enough to continue with map making and such and everything which kept cod2,4 and waw alive for so long. I just think some expected more in EA because the trailers and such portrayed a nice smooth graphical playable game but we all know how that started. Then it was the arrogance of a certain dev which got the backs up of a lot of people and then the change in game direction from what was said the game was supposed to have been so maybe it wasn't just the game that has put players off but a number of things like abandoning this very forum the devs had taken feedback from to start the game and abandoning steam forums etc etc....... i really don't know but i am glad they are trying to sort this game out and i hope it isn't too late too late. I will not play the game at all until release, i played about 10 mins when the last update came out but that is my choice as the game for me is just not interesting or challenging at the moment and all of my clan members have dropped the game, we were a CoD4 clan playing in leagues right up until the end of last year so we were looking to pick this game up as our next main clan game but unfortunately it just didn't work out.
  23. I almost unistalled the game when i had this exact problem since the last update. Thanks WeAsOne, i will give that a try EDIT: Just want to confirm i clicked "Tune for: Performance" and it solved the dark screen issue for me and im getting a full 200fps. Thanks again WeAsOne

    Vanguard 1944 - New Game

    Another WW2 game LOL Yes it looks good but after Battalion i won't buy another Early Access game. If they don't have the funding to finish a game they shouldn't be making games. I feel these game devs should be doing their best to make a game good enough for people to buy, funding should be at the game devs risk and that way they won't be so lazy as with kickstarter funded stuff they give up to easily and it's much less of a risk to them as the funding is there for them. It's free money to them to squander as they wish...... Bulkhead have proved this time and time again.
