So much has happened since we were last celebrating a major community milestone. When we hit 1,000 community members we gave each of those one custom wallpaper. So this time we decided it would only appropriate to do something similar.. and give each of the first 2,000 members three wallpapers.

We have also updated the milestone ribbon so the first 1,000 members have been promoted with two silver stars () and members who have joined us since last time will each receive the single bronze star version ().

All the rewards above are for the first 2,000 members but we aren't leaving anyone out. If you head over to the rewards page all members will find a fourth brand new wallpaper.

The team is very excited about the year ahead with some important development milestones now within sight (no that isn't a hint about a release date). Since day one there has been a long road to follow but the community's support has made the journey so much more enjoyable for everyone involved.

I don't know how hard it is to add this but it would be nice if the sound effects were realistic like Project Reality or certain Arma mods, where the bullets snap and crack and don't just sound like the same generic gun sound repeating on a loop :)

I believe every game or mod switches to the newest version, in this case 3.5.4

will there be some destruction similar to Battlefield and Such? I used to hate playing Battlefield 1942 and sit in a Tiger firing at a building and Nothing happening.

The German characters are going extremely well but the sheer amount of variation which existed in the German army means we aren't quite ready to show them to the community.

Frankly I'm sick of the amount of work the Germans have behind them (in other words it's going very well! :D )

Afraid not. We aren't planning a closed alpha/beta at the moment but that may change in the future. IF we do then we'll make an announcement over at first before third-party sites such as here.
