  1. Previous FPS WW2 shooters focused on the major battles fought by the main allied powers Britain, USA and the Soviet Union. Focusing mainly on military operations after D-Day with an exception of the Eastern Front were we had one or two maps of earlier fighting like Stalingrad. However the WW2 FPS community isn’t only made up of Americans, British and Russians. There are people out there who would love to see the stories of their ancestors told. And believe me these are stories of courage, valor, heroism and sacrifice. Their Armies were defeated by an overwhelming military power but no their spirit. Those men who stood fast and didn’t even go one inch back in the face of a military power house. Battalion 1944 should tell their stories. If it was to become an EPIC WW2 game and see the game SELL OUT in a matter of a few days. Please tell their stories. Do it in their memory. Who wouldn’t buy it? The Norwegians, The French, The Belgians, The Scots, The Italians, The Greeks. This can be a DLC made up of 5 maps based on some major military operations across Europe during the early stages of World War 2. It can be released a couple of months after release. Another possible DLC can focus on other military operations such as around the Mediterranean and North Africa. The Battle of Crete. (The Australians and New Zealanders who fought protecting the airfields) Another possible DLC can focus on Resistance Across Europe . French, Dutch, Polish etc. DO ALL THAT BATTALION 1944 AND YOU’LL NEVER STOP COUNTING THE CASH FLOW FOR YEARS DLC – “Sirens of War 1940” <<NORWAY>> 14 April 1940 MAP1 BACKGROUND: The Battle of Dombas was fought between Norwegian Army infantry forces and German Fallschirmjager Paratroops.

    We help each other in trying to make this game an Epic,..don't forget that I got inspired from you y!NMastah. Keep up your good work.
  3. British Faction Helmets

    Thanks, just to know that I went through the trouble to bring Captain Price into our multiplayer Call of Duty 2 LAN a few years back just to be able to see that red beret. One of my favourite WW2 movies is "A Bridge Too Far"
  4. British Faction Helmets

    How about the following British Paratroopers, SAS and Commandos
  5. Game Type Suggestions for Battalion 1944

    The Germans must destroy all three sections in order to win. The question is Who is able to plant the demolisions? and Who is able to deactivate them. Not everyone can. If Battalion 1944 introduces classes then I suggest only the Engineers will have this ability. This can take the game to an even higher skill level as the rest of the soldiers in the team have to protect their engineers. It then becomes a matter of tactics as every soldier class is equipped with different weapons.

    Here are some pics and maps about Operation Market Garden: A Bridge Too Far
  7. Hi, mate can you please check on my idea on a game type and tell me what you think? I would love to hear your opinion.

  8. Game Type Suggestions for Battalion 1944

    y!NMastah your idea sounds very interesting. Can you come up with something similar for Operation Market Garden? There are a lot to implement. Tell me what you think about the following,..because you have just given me an idea. Operation Market Garden: A Bridge Too Far Game Type Mode 1: Securing the drop zones around the gliders. Attacking Paratroopers can spawn again whereas German patrols and guards in the area are taken by surprise but if they can hold the key points for a specific time until reinforcements arrive they win. Game Type Mode 2: Phase 1: Trying to capture the bridge by securing key points along the bridge while the defenders try to blow it up. In this point the German troops who try to blow the bridge don’t get to spawn again whereas the British Paratroopers who make the surprise attack in force can. Keep in mind that the Paratroopers will be able to deactivate the demolitions but there is a time limit. The Paratroopers must secure three points whereas the German Defenders must set demolitions on three points. If the British Paratroopers succeed in securing the Bridge then the game goes to Phase 2 if not the Germans win the match. Phase 2: The Paratroopers must hold the Bridge (key points) while the German troops who now attack in force try to take the Bridge back. Defending team players (British Paratroopers Only) will not be able to spawn again and can only be spectators if they get killed. If the Paratroopers can hold up to a certain time they win. The Germans must kill every single one of the Paratroopers within a specific time limit.
  9. Multiplayer Game Modes It is very important for Battalion 1944 to become a game for everyone. By saying this I mean all age groups as well as big groups and small groups of players who want to play the game on-line. Young people and especially teenagers have a lot of free time and due to their age group are able to gather a lot of friends to play on a single map. This means that they can play every single game mode available. What about game veterans like me and my friends who are beyond 35 years of age? Married people who with jobs and very little time for gaming? Most of the times, and I can only speak here for myself and my friends, as a person gets older his circle of friends becomes smaller including only a selection of very few true friends who happen to have similar interests. Due our family and work commitments we don’t have a lot of time. We want to play amongst each other and have fun. Not to be in a map with other people who we don’t know. Especially teenagers and younger adults. We don’t want faceless opponents we just want to go up against each other for a bit of a laugh and to have something to talk about while drinking beer or having a coffee. The Headquarters Game Mode is ideal for us because it can be played with even a minimum of 3 vs 3. No matter how big or small the map is the action will be focused around the place where the HQ is located. Smaller maps are preferable as you don’t have to run too far to locate the HQ and both sides can meet at some point on the map to fight over who will capture the HQ. GAME TYPE 1: HQ – Headquarters In this mode, teams capture a set point in the map (the "headquarters") to gain points. It is one of the most popular game modes, as it offers experience per time that the headquarters is held, allowing for larger sums of points earned. Teams must coordinate a steadfast and solid defensive perimeter around a captured headquarters in order to hold it. In addition to a HQ game mode securing bridges in specially made maps based on Operation Market Garden is also a good idea.

    Don't forget Operation Market Garden (17–25 September 1944) 1. 1st Polish Independent Parachute Brigade 2. The British Paratroopers
  11. My name is Michael Tsangaris and I’m a teacher. I’m 42 years old. An old gamer since the days of Atari, Sega Master System, Amiga 500 and later the PC who saw all the developments in the world of gaming. I was born and raised in Australia (Darwin NT that saw the biggest bombing raid by the Japanese after Pearl Harbor). After teaching for almost eight years in Darwin schools I decided to relocate to my parent’s homeland, the small Greek Aegean Island of Kalymnos. Currently I’m teaching English at my own private school. Note: Kalymnos is just a 30minute boat trip from the Island of Leros. The Battle of Leros was the central event of the Dodecanese Campaign of the Second World War, and is widely used as an alternate name for the whole campaign. Leros was occupied by British forces on 15 September 1943. The Battle of Leros itself began with the German air attacks on 26 September, and culminated in the landings on 12 November, ending with the capitulation of the Allied forces four days later. First of all on behalf of all my friends here on the small Aegean Island of Greece and those who live in Darwin I would like to congratulate you for your decision to create such a game. The reason behind this introduction is to show that World War 2 involved the whole world. In order for Battalion 1944 to become an Epic Scale game it must include theatres of war such as: January 22, 1944 - Allies land at Anzio in Italy. - The chance to play as an Italian soldier August 1, 1944 - Polish Home Army uprising - The chance to play as Polish resistance Home Army soldier August 19, 1944 - Resistance uprising in Paris. - The chance to play as a French resistance fighter November 20, 1944 - French troops drive through the 'Beffort Gap' to reach the Rhine. - The chance to play as a French soldier September 17, 1944 - Operation Market Garden begins (Allied airborne assault on Holland). - The chance to play as a Paratrooper (Both British and American) Furthermore, To play as a British Commando during D-Day To play as an Australian soldier in 1944 in New Guinea and the Solomons Please bring other nations into the game: The Italians, The Poles, The French and the Australians
