Upcoming Events

Happy Weekend!

We just wanted to let everyone know about a couple of events that we currently have planned in the coming weeks.

Regular Closed Server Events

While am official date has not been announced just yet, trnapster is working hard on an intricate custom event that will include a wide host of modifications including ACRE, ACE3, RHS, etc...

If you are interested in becoming involved in this, please take a look over at THIS FORUM THREAD for more info and signup details.

Attack on Airbase November

This event will be a much lighter and focused attack and defend map. I have been working on a simple scenario framework which an be easily altered for a variety of things.

This event is scheduled to happen on Wednesday - August 5 @ 2000hrs

Mandatory mods will include CBA and Task Force Radio. More info on the mission will be released next week.

Info can be found on the EVENT POSTING and on this FORUM THREAD.

Server Rules Update

We have updated the server rules.

http://wiki.eutw.net/wiki/Server_Rules

What's new:

  • Insulting players, calling players names, racism, provoking or any toxic behavior is not tolerated and may result in a permanent ban.
  • Do not spam unnecessary markers on the map, especially not for general messaging.
  • DO NOT undermine your own team in any ways. That's including but not limited to: giving away vehicles, items or any kind of information to the enemy.
  • Generally, do not drive the MHQ into the middle of a point that is owned by the enemy team. There are some cases when this tactic can beneficial, but most of the time it's dangerous and you just get the MHQ destroyed. Let your team know if you are planning to do so.
  • Due to view distance restrictions, air vehicles can only engage ground targets while below 1000m.

Please note that most of the changes are just trying to clarify our already established and used rules.

 

2.03.00 Testing / Scenario Event / Video of the Week

Now In Testing

Over the weekend we were full swing on Server #4 for testing of the newest update to EUTW PVP Warfare. The biggest highlights of this future update are a major change to the class system, weapon distribution, and increased options for fast travel. 

Classes are now broken down into 4 functions. 15 x Riflemen, 5 x Medics, 5 x Engineers, and 5 x Snipers. Medics and Engineers will now take on a more critically focused role on the battlefield for those who thrive on support roles. It should also be noted that specific weapons and items will now be restricted for purchase by class.

The biggest change we are researching at the moment is expanding the ability to teleport into what we are now calling "Fast Travel". The system we are trying out is a lot more robust than what has been in place over the past 2 years and includes teleport options from base, captured flags, and MHQ's.

To learn more what we're working on and the WIP update notes, head on over to the forums to read the full changelist and the discussions surrounding the update. Note that what is being done here is by no means final and we still have a lot of work to be done to roll this out in various stages.

We'll be doing sporadic tests during the week as we begin refining the update based on player feedback and internal reviews.

Upcoming Scenario Event

trnapster has been working hard at putting together a custom scenario event. This will include a whole host of mods incorporated into a unique scenario.

If you are interested in taking part, take a look at this thread over at the events forum.

Video of the Week

It's been awhile since we've done as video of the week, so now is a better time than ever.

The video this week is brought to you by long standing community member crogeek. The video below highlights a rare capture of an enemy jet. Enjoy!

Removal of JSRS and Old CBA version from all Servers

We have removed the support from all servers for following mods: 
- JSRS 2.2 
- JSRS DragonFyre 
- JSRS DragonFyre Lite 
- CBA v1.1.20.150408 

The Soundmodification JSRS had a rather huge impact on server and client performance. This is also true for the Lite version of DragonFyre. 

We did a test run on our server #3 for quite some time now and due the popularity of this particular server, we decided to remove these mods alltogether. 

CBA v1.1.20.150408 has been removed as the newer version v1.1.20.150416 RC6 HOTFIX is already on the servers.
