After a long, bloody war in the Sudan, the governments of the United States and Russia struck an uneasy cease-fire over the fate of Africa and its burgeoning industry. This peace would be short lived, for to the north a new conflict was brewing. Ukraine, a former satellite state of the Soviet Union, sought to gain back the power from which it once reveled in. As the snow fell in a heavy midwinter storm, Ukrainian troops moved towards the border of Belarus. Without warning, Ukrainian troops attacked with a speed and effectiveness not seen since the Blitzkrieg of WWII.

Welcome back for a very tardy #129th Point of Existence News update. Point of Existence 2 has been in development for over four years now. We feel it is time to announce that we are ceasing active development for the Battlefield 2 engine. We want to thank our fellow developers, testers, fans and all of the sites that have supported our mod over the years. This has been a work of love for many of us and we hope that you continue to enjoy what we have created. We intend to support any technical issues that may arise from the (cough) upcoming BF2 patch and will respond quickly if the need arises.

Every Tuesday and Friday nights Tactical Gamer is packing the house with PoE2! Each Tuesday and Friday TG packs their server and runs many of the larger maps as well. It's a great time to come out and support the mod and even frag a few PoE Devs. TG is also organizing scrimmages every two weeks along with special events to showcase some of the other game modes PoE2 has to offer such as Frontline and Nuke.

We are feeling a little nostalgic and decided that it might be time to revisit PoE1. We are working on an updated final release of our epic modification for Battlefield Vietnam. We encourage you to dust off those old disks and find your serial numbers, or in the extreme go out and spend $10 and pick up a new copy! This release will have greatly improved COOP as well as fixing some long lost bugs. We'd like to thank Dnarmo and Legion for their outstanding work in adding bot support to PoE1!

Server owners who are interested in hosting PoE1 servers, please contact us and we will make some arrangements so you can be ready for our pending release.

Stop by our forums and lets begin a discussion about our next project!

I certainly enjoyed this mod and look forward to installing it for Vietnam. You guys did a great job, and you must've been very quick about it: I Remember playing what felt like a complete game a year and a half a go with your first version. Fun times. Thanks for all your hard work.
