World War 2 : Open Games

Re-enact WW2 over 4 theatres : Pacific, Africa, Eastern and Western Europe. Missions oppose allies factions (USA, UK, Russia) to axis factions (Japan, Germany) and focus on simple infantry combat to more complex operations combining tanks and planes.

Master word is authenticity, therefore, no moddern functionnality and a very few number of radios.

When do we play ?

We usually play on thursdays at 9PM Paris time.
Upcoming games are announced as sticky then have a specific topic created a few days prior the game in order to announce the briefing. Topics can come up late, but the game will still happen.
Before 8PM : Don’t forget to check your mod synchronisations, some updates can be done late - try your setup on the test server
8:30 PM Begin connecting to teamspeak / game server
9:05 PM : Mission start
The game will start at 9:05 PM. If you were late and not updated, we’re sorry for you, you’ll be able to catch up at the break between the two games, and you will come and test earlier next times :).
