Join the Matrix and Playnet staff and the many Matrix fans as we join the Allies THIS weekend, January 28th and 29th. All weekend long we will have a dedicated chat channel and be coordinating attacks. This is a great opportunity to fight side by side with all your matrix friends, and it’s free!

To join please go to www.battleground-europe.com and download the demo from the link available there (Link will be available starting Friday, Jan 27th around 4:00 PM Eastern). Then, create a free trial account.

Once you have done so, login and have your character join the allies (Britain or France). Click on the “F6 button” in the chat bar and select “Custom” and enter the numbers “79.” Now, press F6 and type a greeting. The Matrix Allied Taskforce will fill you in on the basics and where to go from there!

I look forward to seeing some of our forum goers on BGE this weekend. I'll be there pretty much all day Saturday and Sunday... and you can't POSSIBLY be worse than I am (though I am up to two kills with my new character).

AAARGH - not *this* weekend ! - I'll be away all weekend, unless I can convince my wife otherwise (fat chance) or the weather turns really nasty (just started praying for 2' of snow)

But just in case I can make it an innocent question here : can you shoot the guys on your own side ?

Greetz,

you can't kill friendlies with weapons, but hit a tree or other object with soldiers on your truck and that will kill them.. or in a plane with a lot of paratroops and you get mad at people telling you that you are teh suck, just nosedive in and kill em all ;-)

oh yeah, and you CAN kill yourself.. drop a nade at your feet or a satchel charge and you'll see what i mean :-)

i'm looking forward to having you guys online with us!! just remember that it's a hard game to get a grip on... just keep at it and before you know it you'll know which tiny black dots on the horizon are enemy and which one's aren't :-)

also, if you wanna see an organized op on the allied side in progress, we have a 4th brigade (British Army) sponsored operation planned for Saturday afternooon starting at 4pm EST (GMT -5:00 (I think LOL)).. tune ch21 if you wanna join in.. it will be fun and give you a taste of what teamwork is involved in taking it to the axis.

S!

I have also got a couple of armored cars high-grounded on obstacles...this is almost like killing a friendly.

It is a fun game. I dont suppose the new thing will operate on a 733 Mhz machine.

dunno Cap.. 733 is pretty low end.. the biggest help i can be (technically speaking) is to make sure you have plenty of ram.. at least 1 gig is typically recommended. You can play with less, but you'll get a much better experience with at least 1 gig.

Sweep for spyware etc, defrag your hard drive and close any unnecessary processes. This game needs your computer's and your connections full attention.

That was pretty fun, once I got to where the action was. I am pretty good at getting killed. Who was "Matrix 05"? Thanks for the help!

We should get a proper 6-9 man squad together for tomorrow night. Be great to try some proper tactics out.

I saw you guys yesterday when I was online (Ive just joined a squad). This game is a lot of fun and IMHO fills in the gaps in games like COD etc.

Yeah, it's incredible. I played WW2 online years ago. The game has just sooooo much improved like back then. I'm hooked again. Yehaaah.

Well, I gave it a whirl, got 1 kill with a Lee Enfield, augered a Hurricane, and pushed around a 2pdr to the ends of the earth. And about 5 minutes ago, while pushing a 2pdr around, I saw David (Matrix01). So I got him to stand still for a nice picture (see below). Hehehehehe.

Hey, admins. As you know, this game being Player vs Player generates a lot of antagonism between sides (Axis and Allies). Any chance you could edit the news post on your main page to first include a balanced description of the 14-day trial before mentioning the "Play Allied" weekend? Arguments get pretty heated (and have today) on the forums when players feel there is an official promotion or game change which favors one side over the other. Thanks for reading.

Mogami, if the game crashes again, go into the Support Forum: http://forums.battlegroundeurope.com/forumdisplay.php?f=41

If you have a windows PC then include your dxdiag info in the description of the problem: http://www.gnasche.com/ww2ol/support/gethelp.htm

I have had an acount thier since just before it came out, I was in the last groupe of beta testers, it is a fun game, and I play it for a month or so and take a break and come back to it, they are constantly improving it, one of the things I like best about it.

I tried to link up with the Matrix group over the weekend and had no luck. Whenever I tried to ask how to link up on the 79 channel, I never received a reply. From what I saw of the game, it looked amazing, but my experience playing was an odyssey of misery. I was killed twice and MIA once.

Bring up cursor with ALT..select empty channel..f5..select Custom and type in 79, hit enter. Get with a group makes it more fun. If in game, you can tune my ID, but selecting Custom and typing hardcase and hitting enter. Keep trying, it gets easier the more you die

OK...that is pretty bloody funny

Manning a well hidden AT gun is a blast (at least it was in the previous incarnation of the game)...of course you have to wait for the enemy to come to you

Well, the weekend is over but the trial lives on.

I have this to say about my experience: Oh... my ears! If I had to pick one thing BGE does best it is the sound effects. If you are in a large battle you hear gunshots all around you, tank fire from distant hills (hopefully) the woosh and riccochet of bullets as they fly past your helmet, bombs dropping, plane engines, air raid sirens.... and it is all directional... so you can turn your soldier head when you hear a gunshot and have a good idea of where it came from.

On the brighest note. There I was slowly creeping up on a German town that wasn't expecting our allied attack. I made it into a small protected area around a tree. I happened to look to my right and what did I see, another person doing the exact same thing as me but in the other direction! A german not 3 ft away from me... and he doesn't see me! I take aim and blast his helmet... and that was my first kill :)

On the note that we are Allied Propegandists and taking sides:

The decision for ALLIES only was made because the chat channel, 79, would only work if everyone is on the same side. The reason we picked allies over germans had nothing to do with politics but actually had to do with the fact the Allies were losing and needed people :) Sorry if that decision bothered anyone and that it wasn't explained...

-Joe
