Operation Open Beta Wed, 27 October 2010 20:55
From: M44 High Command
To: All Volunteers for Operation Open Beta


Our weather and radar stations off the coast have just informed us that a window of favorable weather is likely to open the week of November 15-19. Barring any last minute move of enemy troops, commandos wishing to enroll in Operation Open Beta should clear their schedule for that week and prepare for the start of operations. More information will follow in the coming weeks...

From: Captain Rasmussen
To: All Current Beta Testers


Our recon planes and long range scouts report a massive build-up of hostile troops on all fronts! Radio chatter has increased in recent hours and code breakers report a probable offensive is planned...weather forecasts show that Mid-November may allow for a full assault. In light of this intelligence, all passes surrounding November 15-19 are revoked and training maneuvers are planned throughout early November.

Prepare yourselves because once the perimeter is breached we will be overrun and it will be each man for himself. If you haven't already done so, sign up for hazard pay in the pavilion by the landing strip...it has been a pleasure serving with each of you. Good luck and God bless!

I don't want the above message to be misinterpreted...I'm very much looking forward to everyone joining the Open Beta pool and I know that the other Beta Testers are as well! Cool

It will be nice to see so many familiar User Names (or brand new ones) online and ready to battle. Welcome to the ranks, cadets!! Very Happy

For those of us stationed in the far flung regions which timezone is the attack to begin in? Europe or US (and which timezone within those regions?)

While this may seem to be pedantic this does make a difference as my timezone is UTC + 13 at present.

I'm sorry, Phread, but us closed beta testers voted that no one from UTC +13 should be let in, so for you the operation will start..... NEVER!
Laughing

Sorry, just found that funny to say. I don't know what time of day the operation will start, but most likely in the morning US time, as that is when the programmers are working, I think.

Looking forward to seeing more people online.

I'm not sure I understand your question but I'll answer what I think you're asking. Smile You don't have to do anything special to register for the coming beta version. With the account you have right now you'll be able to sign up for a free trial and download the game to play!

Welcome and have fun!! Cool

Erwin Rommel: "...the first 24 hours of the invasion will be decisive...the fate of Germany depends on the outcome...for the Allies, as well as Germany, it will be the longest day."

Seems like you will be sharing waiting time with Rommel...

Cool I look forward to meeting you on the battle field!! Sadly I realized the other day that I'll be on vacation in Sri Lanka during the week that Memoir '44 Open Beta is scheduled to launch so I'll miss the opening days of the battle.

I'll join everyone online as soon as I'm able to, don't you worry! There are many other beta testers out there who will be more than happy to show new players how the online game works and I'm sure DoW will provide an excellent tutorial as well. Smile

As a side note, if you guys are anything like us beta testers you'll dive into battle head first without reading the tutorial... Very Happy I would advise everyone to actually study the document before playing because it will save you (and the people who will have to answer all of the questions) lots of time and headache!

Hello Pomakli,

We will be in Sri Lanka from November 12th until early morning November 19th but the only time we could meet is if you can come one of the hotels we're staying in. PM me so we can set up a possible time to get together!

In fact - I think this could be a great idea to publish tutorial (that you mentioned) before release of open beta.
At first it will help us to survive this remaining week, and for sure it reduces number of those, who did not read and play Smile
Sorry for my english - I hope I explained my idea well.

You explained your idea very well and it's a good idea. Smile

We'll have to see if the tutorial is ready and if any of the team members are available to post it, but I wouldn't be surprised if they are already planning to have this available before Open Beta launches! Very Happy

Moved house last week, and was a bit worried about missing the start of this, but now have Internet up and running with a few days to spare.

Looking forward to facing you all across the battlefield.

The weather is good...the plan is still on as far as I've heard. Just to remind everyone, in Eric's initial post he said the "week of November 15-19" so it could be any time during those days.

Obviously players (and I'm sure DoW staff) are hoping for early next week, but it could end up being later in the week since he didn't say any specific day. Cool It looks like people are assuming they'll get to start the world-wide battles on Monday but Memoir '44 Online could launch on Friday and still be in Eric's timeframe.

Thank you for the clarifications, captain!

The troops are standing by patiently and await further instructions. Rest assured, they will be ready to begin the operation on your command.

Well done! Laughing Laughing

I'll be on a beach in Sri Lanka when Open Beta launches (and therefore disconnected from the internet for the whole week) but I'm sure I'll be able to hear the battle cries and opening shots!! Enjoy, everyone, whenever the program becomes available. I know you'll have a great time. Very Happy

Pardon my honesty, sir, but this situation is reminiscent of Rommel taking leave for his wife's birthday during Operation Overlord.

We will carry on as best as we can, sir!

Actually I thought of the exact same comparison! Laughing It would have been even more perfect if I still used the Rommel picture for my Profile Pic. Very Happy

It can't be helped, though...a man has to take a vacation when he has the time off work. Smile

Have fun!
