    Games not yet dead guys.. Let's talk about it!

    Yes, it's normal. Always happens after an update. What I really want to know is what the playerbase will be like in a week, a month and even a year from now. Will they regain the trust from the customer or will Battalion fail? I don't think they care about casuals (yet).The lans are just a way to keep the competitive scene happy.

    I'm fed up with Bulkhead. Some Kickstart backers are still waiting for their rewards, casual players still have to wait for months and people who invested because they wanted to play a console version are completely screwed... Instead of hiring extra people to focus on the casual side, they waste their money on a 50.000 euro lan. It's a disgrace.

    Have you tried contacting them? I think giving the Kickstarters their rewards is probably the last thing on their minds right now.

    Glad you like it, especially because you're a Kickstarter backer. Still easy to find games?

    Reaction on Wartide 2.0 post

    From the Wartide 2.0 post: "This is a temporary measure until we’re ready to relaunch a brand new ranked playlist through our huge competitive matchmaking upgrade later in the year (which we will release more info on at a later date. This decision was also made as we feel the ranked experience of Battalion 1944 wasn’t to the standard we ourselves would’ve liked it to be in, let alone our players. " The way I understand it is that they're going to retire the current 'Ranked' and (hopefully) replace it with a better version.

    Am I the only one who understands their decision to drop Ranked for now? The 24-hour playercount peak is now between 200 and 300. Worldwide(!!!!). You can't merge different regions like NA and Europe. But you can merge different gamemodes. The small playerbase was already divided between Arcade, Ranked and Unranked. With only Arcade and Wartide left it's easier for the few remaining players to find a match. In my opinion it's the best solution in a shitty situation.

    Well, they listened to our feedback. That's a first step. They posted an update on the official forum. I still hope Battalion will become a success with the right changes. I haven't waited for two years for the game to become a complete failure. But unlike Reddit, I first have to see it to believe it.

    That's what Early Access is for. Letting people play the game, see where they fucked up and try to improve those aspects. Important for everyone here: Tuna posted an update about Wartide 2.0

    They are just quickly satisfied. They don't need proof to see the game has actually improved, but are happy with empty promises.

    Another important factor is that their beloved eSports players are on Reddit. We are 'merely' casuals and backers. We are the other half according to @[CM] BigTuna . We don't matter to Bulkhead Interactive. Oh wait, the backers did matter, back when they needed their money. Now that the people can't get their money back, Bulkhead can show them the middle finger and can continue to satisfy the needs of the former COD4 'pro's'. By the way, I'm fully aware I come across like a complete asshole in this post. But sadly the only times someone from Bulkhead seems to respond is to someone who acts like a dickhead and not to people who try to have a civil discussion. On a more serious note: BigTuna, I understand it's impossible for you to respond to everyone. But is it really that much trouble to copy, paste and post this update on your own official forum?

    You mean the Reddit post by Big_Tuna? I know the name 'official forum' might be misleading, but don't expect any news from the official team behind Battalion here. Sad but true. No wonder this forum is nearly abandoned.

    There is a wallhack bug in Battalion. If you join spectator first, than a team and press a certain button(something like this), you can see through walls. The best thing about it? It will be fixed in June/July.

    I still hope this game will succeed, but more WW2 FPS are coming. Battlefield, Post Scriptum and Hell Let Loose.

    xD

    In a certain way it does matter. They need people to play the game, give feedback and in that way they can improve Battalion for full release.

    And don't forget about Hell Let Loose and Post Scriptum. Both WW2 games. Find this depressing? Then avoid Reddit.
