Urah!

We are proud to release the latest version of Darkest Hour, which sees the addition of Ostfront units, weapons and vehicles. Of course, this also means the addition of four Ostfront maps, including the infamous fan favorite Kreigstadt (a.k.a. Berlin)!

Been an avid lover of this mod for a long time now.

Though if I had to suggest a change, it would perhaps be an update for the reloading animations on the US and UK weapons, as well as improved foley sounds for them.

Is there a list of the music used at the end of every match somewhere? It seems several other players don't know what some of the songs are, either.

Just yesterday 29th battalion and Real Panzers were both full concurrently, with Goodguys at about 15.

Hey, douchebag, we get multiple full servers during peak hours. The update just launched and the numbers have doubled, maybe tripled.

You shouldn't use the word "retard" in an offensive fashion. Being the product of incest, as you are, is much worse.

Please show me a picture with "multiple full servers" I play regularly but There's only one server that is almost full, JUST ONE. So please, him calling you retard is pretty well deserved because you are lying and making new players believe this game is dead when they only see one server full, while you promised them "multiple full servers". They'll think the game is in rapid decline. So please, just don't...

This game still gets FULL servers daily! Come join us!

RO1 also gets full servers during active Russian/European hours!

Tripwire VP said Ro1 could be freeware someday on the tripwire forums, so please! PLEASE join up on that forum here Forums.tripwireinteractive.com and encourage them to make it so!

Just make mortars automatic (bot controlled). Annoying to be killed by a lazy mortar gunner and boring to be one too.
