    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    @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.

    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.
  10. Dark is still hoping we go back to the future and EA was a success in February 2018 LMAO

    Nvidia GeoForce recognizing...

    Geforce works fine for me with regards to recording and screenshots in Battalion but the game doesnt show up in my supported games list within Geforce. I had a quick search and Battalion doesnt seem to be in the supported games list yet. Nvidia Geforce game list

    How about change everything

    sLL posted that in June when the player count was very low, MU2 was 12th July which saw player count increase so don't think he was being toxic, he was stating a fact for that time period. Player numbers are looking good so far, hopefully it will progress but we will just have to wait and see.
  14. Not sure what mine are set too but your pics look very nice Il take a look next time i launch the game.
  15. Excel

    Ah well!

    I take on board what your saying but it's not just me, trust me i wanted this game to be the boost a clan leader needed, recruiting members, playing in leagues and most importantly having a regular game to play with all your mates like back in the good old days. Probably my own fault for setting my sights too high but the game is progressing but i just can't for the life of me see that many people coming back to it. I hope im wrong and after release the game is top notch but as i type this i can't help but feel Battalion will be a game you play for 30 mins just for a break. As for Battlefield, ye i agree, just reskinned but then if something is working right then why not I have all the BF also except Hardline, even the spec ops expansion for the original BF, the good old days never to be repeated unfortunately.
  16. Excel

    Ah well!

    Indeed you are correct but if everyone doesn't bother it is because everyone feels the same. I gave it another go and it has improved very much but trying to get my mates back playing is hard work, being told flatly "No thanks" every time says it all. Only people to blame are the devs, yes they had some bad luck at the start but they could have done more to try and install confidence back into the players instead of setting their sights on a new type of player and dumping this forum and distancing themselves from the truly interested players. We were going to play Battalion in a league but the game was so bad the league decided it couldn't host it then all the emails the league admin sent along with mine to Mr Brammer were just ignored so what more can people do. For me, i will have a game now and then, will never be my main game but as a clan we have gone back to battlefield 1 and await Battlefield V.
  17. Bulkhead seem to have segregated the community into two parts, "the pros" and "the casual gamer". Through past experiences it is never a good idea trying to make two of the same thing from the start, driving a wedge between players so speak when all everyone wants to do is play a game. I still have no clue why Bulkhead focus on Esports before creating a player base for the game first and when all said and done it was the Backers, Kickstarters and finally the EA purchases which enabled Bulkhead to have the funds to work on this game only for those same people to be put on the back burner but with that said MU2 is a huge improvement and its where the game should have been 3 months ago perhaps.
  18. Surprisingly as i type there are 578 playing but i guess its to see if its any better, tomorrow may be a different story...... No idea why they push lans? if there are no casual gamers playing the game they certainly are not going to bother watching it so whats the point unless there are some underlying deals we don't know about.
  19. I must admit to playing the new version the other weekend and it has changed a lot which in turn get's my hopes up once more. None of that laggy feel, colours looked better and the hit reg seemed better (think the STG is too op though) but it seems to be going in the right direction i think but is it too late?

    Battlefield V back to WWII

    I am looking forward to B V, looking awesome 😎
  21. This ^ The update will make or break the game completely. If it's still no good i don't think Bulkhead or Battalion will recover but i await the patch and give it one final go before uninstalling it and learn from this experience and never buy another EA game again based on hype.
  22. Good for you for sticking around but 16200 people do not share your's or Zanes enthusiasm because most of us have our eyes wide open. I watched the old reviews and trailers of the game and it's nothing like what was released in EA. Even now i read a post on steam stating the next update is in July, conveniently just in time for some big esport event in Amsterdam with a 50k pot. Seriously guys, you really think they care about the players? think again. Bulkhead have missed the PC gamers trust and that will never come back but it will be nice to see a very small niche of 100 players (including you) playing a game everyone else thought was rubbish. It's nothing like CoD2/4 its more like CS:GO with some other games thrown in. I don't care for loot crates, coins or whatever crap they offer just wanted a back to basics fps as they promised but that is never going to happen. I know it's not but it's the sheer frustration of being promised something and getting something entirely different and the game is bleeding itself to death and all Bulkhead care about is esports and Lans. Do what i did last night, go back a watch some trailers and see what they advertised the game on then go see their recent posts about esports........ esports has been put first, that is their focus but how can that work without a player base? Bulkhead are not very clever to be fair and im embarrassed they have an office 10 mins away from me. Continue to support them and have high hopes but it will end, unless you get a console as that will be their next main focus. PS, I continue to post here because i want someone from Bulkhead to post here as they are active on every other format just not here, there's got to be something wrong with that.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
