The Great War 5.0 now officially has a release date!

Posted by .Mitch. on Aug 3rd, 2013

Fans of the Great War mod, it's been over three long years since this mod began, over that time we've always had a vision of what we wanted our WW1 mod to be, and up to now it's been hard to realise our vision.

With the introduction of new community made tools, the dedicated hard work of our mod team and the endless support of our many fans we reach what we've always hoped our mod would one day become.

That's not to say this journey is over... If anything, it has only just began.

To those who doubted us, thought this mod would never work, that our endeavour was inherently flawed, thank you. Without you driving us, pushing us to succeed when things seemed tough we would never have reached where we are now.

To those who always believed in us, to you I'm afraid I have no words. There are truly no words I know of which can fully express my gratitude. This mod is every bit as much yours as it is this mod teams and I hope it goes at least some of the way towards repaying you for the dedication and support you have shown us over what has been a very long time.
You stayed with us when hope seemed lost.
You waited patiently while we remained silent.
You are the reason this mod is what it is today.

~ The Great War team

I'm pretty sure they wouldn't release it without a campaign.

That would historically inaccurate and in complete contradiction to France's staunch attitude in WW1 though.
You don't hold 80% of the Western Front by yourself for four years, have the 3rd largest army of Europe (after Germany and Russia), loose 4.3% of your population (16% of all mobilized) and prevent the Germans from taking Paris twice in a single war by merely surrendering.

(seriously. French surrender jokes might have been pertinent 10 years ago, but now they got really stale. Try thinking of something new for once.)

Here Here! Well said. The French did not fail to learn from their very obvious failings made starkly evident by the Prussians during the Franco-Prussian War in 1870. The lessons they learned were put to good use against the Germans in World War One. The French fought like demons possessed! They are judged too harshly for their failings in World War II, and to be perfectly honest, their so called failings in the second world war were shared by the entire Allied Command structure.

Always the same joke. No originality. Seriously, it is not funny anymore. Please learn some lessons about humor.

Can they shoot while running..?

Nope. Shooting while running was, is, and will probably always be a very dangerous thing to do (both to yourself due to the high chances of falling and to your friendlies because of the lack of proper aiming).
