As you are all no doubt aware, we announced that we were going to replace our free trial promotion which was never working as well as we'd have liked at getting new accounts into the playerbase, and rolling that change into our desire to offer the ability to play WWIIOL:Battleground Europe for FREE.

Well that day has come! As I write, free accounts are now able to be created and played on the live server. Equipment choices are limited and a premium account cannot be downgraded to a free account. The general rule of thumb is that the equipment a free account user can access is lower down the scale to encourage them to get a paid account in order to get the "good stuff" you all want. As the campaign progresses the quality of equipment a free account can access does improve, but they can never access the latest or best gear.

We hope there are no big issues or hiccups (well d'uh!) and will be watching for any should they occur. So far it's all looking very good.

Everyone have a great time and don't kill all the new dweebs too quickly ok !

See you out there somewhere, in my gunsights !

now calling vets to take good care of these new players. Try to retain them as much as possible by offering them a great playing environment. Teach them, guide them, recruit them. Thank for this RATS

Sweet lordy baby Jesus. Some progress. Now just get the Squads fully incorporated in the HC and you will gain some momentum.

FREE TRIAL ACCOUNTS CONVERTING TO FREE PLAY DO SO WHEN THEN THE TRIAL PERIOD ENDS. UNTIL THEN THEY CANNOT CAPTURE BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT TECHNICALLY, TO THE SERVER, A FREE PLAY ACCOUNT, THEY ARE FREE TRIAL ACCOUNTS. DON'T GET THE TWO CONFUSED.

"Rifle and SMG infantry only. No capture or mission posting. Some vehicles and aircraft are unavailable to fee accounts."
"Capturing facilities is enabled for FPA's."

So can a Free account cap?
Can you spawn trucks?
Can you spawn some tanks?
