  2. Are we being heard by the developers?

    Oh we are reading the forums and you will get replies but now the game is released just don't expect as many as previously
  3. Are we being heard by the developers?

    I think we already tried this and didn't get anywhere unfortunately.
  4. Are we being heard by the developers?

    @Grasshopper I think the main problem is the fact there is no app we know of that means we can get the forum on our mobile devices. Joe will write thigns up the reddit app at home or on the couch or on the toilet for all I know. I know we are on it more on our phones during our of office ours than we can be on the forums because of the lack of mobility. Reddit is something we are keen to grow too there are lots of new community members there that (we thought) needed more attention to keep satisfied than our long standing forum users!
  5. EU team looking for scrims

    Hey man. As this guy said. Scrims can be arranged on the discord. Here is the link: https://discord.gg/bNuVXB
  6. Are we being heard by the developers?

    At the moment I personally spend 90% of my time in my DM's on Twitter, Forum and Discord. 75% of that time is spent giving people their keys after they haven't checked their emails correctly or they never filled out their KS survey. I have spent entire days at the office on this task alone. The other small amount of time left is spent doing important back room stuff that goes unnoticed. If I was replying to threads people wouldn't be getting their keys and not playing the game. It is very similar with the other devs apart from that 90% for them is spent with their heads down building updates and fixes to make the game better. Unfortunately we are a small team so we spend a lot of time just balancing a lot of jobs so it pains me to say this but you should just keep playing and enjoying Battalion and when you want to, providing feedback and maybe worry a little less whether or not you think you're being "heard" or not. We hear your complaints we read a lot of them. I personally believe we are much more interactive with our community than a LOT of other developers. Our STUDIO LEAD has been streaming a lot over the past 3 weeks which is a place you can go to directly ask him questions. What other studio lead does this. He has been so vocal about his opinions and interacting with the community that we had to put out a an announcement about it as some people got offended when he gave his real opinions about things. Want more or less of this? We read your bug reports and appreciate them but there is just not enough time to be replying to all them whilst we are working our asses off behind the scenes to keep everything going. Thanks for your support

  11. Some new Devs on the Forum

    Hey Guys! In light of Alpha approaching this weekend, we have set up two more of our Developers on the forum Their main role on here will be to monitor and relay your feedback and opinions during our upcoming Alpha Phase weekends. They will be really useful and provide a great route for your feedback to really have an impact Battalion. Say Hey to @[DEV] James who is a programmer and all round useful dude. James also oversees our QA at the moment as well! He will be pretty present in the Alpha Bug Reporting Forum and discussing any issues there are within the Alpha. Also say Hi to @[DEV] Tn6 / Tim. He has recently moved up to production after previously proving his knowledge in our Art team. Tim knows a lot about a lot and he will be monitoring what you think of certain game-play related features as well as taking in any problems with art that you guys find during the Alpha! These guys will be super helpful in detailing what needs to be improved upon and allowing us to update Battalion throughout the Alpha weekends. Give them a Howdy and don't let them be strangers! That's all for now. Tuna
  12. Hello Battalionites! I’m Alex Preece, but you will know me as “Big Tuna”, I am the Community Manager at Bulkhead. I’m going to be talking with you all quite a lot from here on in! I am finally set up in the studio! I thought it was about time I formally introduced myself and let you know a little bit about my background.. I grew up playing, Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, BF1942, Call of Duty 1, 2, World at War! So as you can probably tell I am missing that genre quite a lot. I can’t wait for what we have in store for the future! I just wanted to let you all know that I am available to chat and communicate with! Therefore I want to take this chance to make sure you all know how to contact me. If you want to have a casual chat, show me interesting articles or chat about games, tweet me @BigTunaAlex. If you are a Youtuber and wanted to have a chat with me about Battalion or any of our other games then email me on alex@bulkheadinteractive.com. Looking forward to talking more with you all! Especially on the Battalion “State of The Union” Livestream & Q&A on the 6th May! Follow my twitter @BigTunaAlex and let’s keep this community growing, building, interacting. Let’s be a part of something awesome! Thanks everyone!
  13. I haven't gotten my EA key?

    So I looked into this. 1 person in this thread had already been sent their code and 2 others had filled in their survey after Early Access had already launched. All have their keys now. TY.
  14. Early Steam Access Key

    It's a little late for the Survey now. I'll have to give you a code personally. I'll be Working through my DM's today but I am hugely in demand dude give me time.
  15. Humble Bundle backers....past problems

    DM me on the forum and I'll do my best to help. If it's a humble issue its them being shit and we having to work around it
  16. Hi Everyone. As you know Early Access is right around the corner and we will be sending out codes for this very soon! Some of you might know that a few people have been having issues with our code emails going into their Spam / Promotional Folders. This has been out of our control however there are steps you all can take to make sure it doesn't happen, to combat this I recommend that you: Add "info@bulkheadinteractive.com" to your "safe senders", "White-list" and / or "contacts". Make sure you set a filter for this email into your inbox. Keep checking the email accounts you gave us or the one you signed up to Kickstarter / Humble Bundle with. Use your search bar and search for "Bulkhead Interactive". This is really important as we don't want you missing out on your chance to play. Thanks for your continued support and we are trying our hardest to make this process as easy for you all as possible! Tuna and the Bulkhead Team
  17. Deleting Forum Club

  18. Can only post in Bug Reporting and Tech Support

    Looked into it. Should be fixed.
  19. Backed the game no key

    I have just sent proof to 2 people in this thread that we sent out their codes in December. Yesterday I sent out proof to 2 other people in this thread that we sent them their codes in December. We can't hand deliver codes to everyone individually, there aren't enough hours in the day for this. 85% of people figure it out so why can't the other 25%. Joe gets frustrated because people "call us out" at times and make threads like this one claiming we are ripping people off or not giving people what they have paid for when in actual fact we are doing our job and I have sent you all proof that we have. Our studio lead cares a great deal about both his community, his studio and his employees so when you call that all out and claim that it's in the wrong when it isn't he gets fired up. We aren't suits in board rooms. We are a company of smart gamers making a game that people love. Work with us not against us and accept we might actually know what we are doing. There are ways in which you may have paid for Battalion and not received a key but that is a very very very small percentage and was due to Humble Bundle's fuck up not ours. Anyone that has come to me with these issues has had it resolved personally. If you still believe you have not received one. DM me and I will take your request seriously and get your code from our database and resend it to you. However if you post a passive aggressive post on our public forum that others can see saying we aren't doing our job, when we are then we aren't going to be impressed. Thank you to @Razor for attempting to get this point across. I'm locking this topic because there's no more to say.
  20. Humble Bundle

    @dustahh If you had access to the Alpha then you'll still have access to beta....?
  21. Hey guys! If you're reporting a Technical Issue please: Use English as much as possible, however - If your post is specific to your country of origin you we may over look it.

  22. Hey @OhBoy... First of all I want to thank you for taking time to give your opinion on our trailer. We appreciate all feedback as we feel its all useful to us for future decisions. We understand that our song choice for our Early Access announcement trailer might not fit into the theme of WW2 exactly however we were inspired by shows and films such as "Peaky Blinders" and "The Great Gatsby" who use modern sounding / style music and also songs from modern day and incorporate them into their period setting. We personally believe as @WeAsOne said that WW2 is just a setting for us and we felt that that song fit in with the style we were going for as well as provided a good emotional narrative to get people invested into wanting to play Battalion. We are sorry that you believe and request Battalion to be a "realistic shooter" however that is not what we promised and it is not what we made. We don't believe that our game or our trailer is disrespectful to anyone and we are going to continue to make trailers in the best interest of Battalion and its fans As @Firefly said, As an add on to this I'd like to say 50% of that video is game-play footage We didn't simulate any of the first person firefights in engine. The parts where you see +5 & +10 were recorded in-game so if that doesn't look like something you'd want to play then I recommend games like Red Orchestra 2, Squad or it's WW2 equivalent; Post Scriptum Despite this difference of opinion I hope you choose to look past historical accuracy and give Battalion a go and judge it based on how fun you find it and how it makes you feel. I hope to see you in game dude.
