    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?
  11. 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.
  15. Excel

    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.
  17. 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.

    Update on progress please

    That is pretty much the way it went and is going. Look at steam discussion groups, zero activity from the dev's and even on the "ask a dev a question" forum not one reply to any question has been given by a dev. I guess this is the result of a dev team using other people's money to force a game in to Esports before making a game for the casual's, building a player base then enter Esports....... seems the most logical way to do thing's.

    Update on progress please

    Yup thats exactly how they are going and well put tbh I forgot to add the link https://www.bulkheadinteractive.com/ Click on Studio tab and you see they have two offices, the statement on the Munich one (Darkhorse) say's...... I do not know if they are referring to B44 as their new game or they are working on yet another new fps game but that explains why they are not putting 100% into the game they promised to make. They spend more time expanding and possibly working on another game and all from the backers and a discounted broken game to everyone else. I know a couple of you have said "it's only a game" but think of the money they have taken from people to enable them to get to where they are today. On another note, Battlefield 5 Beta is out and is pretty awesome if anyone wants to try it.
  22. Excel

    Update on progress please

    I don't think it's a money issue as they have now split the company Bulkhead Phoenix (UK) & Bulkhead Darkhorse (Munich) not sure when this other office opened before or after EA though. I can see the companies figures have gone up in turnover and tbh i just don't know how you can fail at something, upset so many people and still make lots of profit LOL, the mind boggles. Soldat, yes i looked at Post Scriptum but again EA game, mixed reviews but that was on the day, i will take another look at it, cheers mate.

    Update on progress please

    Hey Soldat, Sorry if you thought i was having a dig at you but i can assure i wasn't. I know you were one of many to stand up and tell the devs they were heading in the wrong direction so i know you personally are not a fan boy, that part wasn't directed at you and after reading your post i think you meant to use the word "abrupt" rather than "rude" so apologies for the misunderstanding. This game and dev team get me so frustrated because a lot of clans, including my own had a lot of hope for this game and i even gave BH so many chances to come good but we get nothing but let down by these guys but we all know the story, it's been written so many times. Thank's

    Update on progress please

    @Soldat Ryan Sorry if you think having an opinion and being factual is rude but i'm not one to dress things up. Black is black and white is white, i owe BH nothing so if they or any fan boys don't like my comment's it's because they don't like the truth, get all defensive and say it's being rude. If you think that's rude you should see some of my other post's when im in a bad mood 😂 I turned my servers off 4 months ago, just wasn't worth having them running using resources better put elsewhere.
  25. Excel

    Update on progress please

    I have to agree with your post Farq-S. It's as though Bulkhead are letting B44 fade away whilst BH have moved on to other things. No idea what is happening but most people said it months ago, this game will be a fail but some disagreed which split the community immensely and Bulkhead chose to ignore the vast majority of people's concerns and question's unless they posted positive comments about the game and not to mention they abandoned this forum from what i believe is where it all started. I hate to be negative but i have nothing but negativity for this amateurish team, they took the money and didn't deliver, even to the point of closing servers in certain areas leaving a potential amount of players with a crappy game experience. Who wants to play with a stupidly high ping, is that not a bad thing for the game? Anyway, im fed up with Battalion and Bulkhead not being able to deliver what they promised, they are deluded enough to think people are going to wait around for a fully polished game when they can't even be bothered to keep in touch with their customers. This forums activity reflects game activity and i will never ever buy a game from Bulkhead ever again, i almost feel mugged into thinking this dev team and game was going to bring communities, clan's and leagues back to life because what they promised is nothing like we are ever going to get. I made a point to Joe Brammer on steam where he said "we are listening to the community and making the game blah blah blah" or something similar and asked him why BigTuna always post's "we are making the game we want" i asked which statement is correct and do they know what they are doing but i received no reply and yet Joe posted to other topics but ignored mine. Arrogant and ignorant is not a way forward for anyone especially in business.
