The British marched on through thick and thin – the trenches were rough. Covered and caked in mud, it was clear the day was almost done and so were the men…
Suddenly, you hear Corporal Clapham from the top of his lungs; “GERMANS!” – it echoed. The men got into their positions, determined to take back the acquaint French town “Vers Amiens”.
Korporal Lange spotted the ‘Brits from distance – “Dummköpfe!" as he stamped his feet. Lange and his men continued to push forward, getting closer and closer to the British.
Suddenly, both sides came to standstill, the town so quiet you could hear a pin drop. Clapham ordered his men to attack, a bloody one at that.
He quickly realised his men were in trouble, he started to retreat but it was too late for the most part. Privatgelände Nymphiss pulled through raising the empire flag whilst shouting “God with us” blood, sweat and possibly tears dripping from his face. A man with many emotions.
A special thanks to all that participated and congratulations to the Germans, especially Nymphiss for being last alive.
Forty-five players. I haven't seen anything like it, and to say that I contributed as a member of staff left me speechless. A massive thank you to @Longstriker who has put hours into the server, website and put up with my constant nagging. Without him, none of this would have been possible. @Lange for the continued support and a great representative. Lastly, our Moderators - we've had a rough patch but honestly, without them, my job would be near impossible.
Where do we go from here? Consistency. It's hard but required. You guys aren't silly when we slip you realise. Which is why it is important to maintain our high expectation of players and staff which makes this community unique.
If there is one thing I have realised that the player voice is an incredibly important part of this. Without it becomes problematic, which is why I am launching something called: 'BIG Voice' was I inspired by the TV show? No... perhaps. Once a month, you will be invited onto our Discord where you are able to voice your positives or negatives which will help us improve.
Once again, none of this would have been possible without YOU.
Beta will launch on Friday the 12th at 7pm BST. If you plan on leading a nation now is the time! Please be aware that during the beta week everyone specifically listed on the nation application will have access to Limited Creative as well as yourself to build. No items or inventories will be kept post the beta week as it is strictly for building and testing our plugins. We have almost finished polishing the nation and only have Poland-Lithuania left.
It has been a long time since myself and Joseph have managed servers. Truth be told, I was adamant them days were done. Seems not.
My passion for leading a successful, entertaining, driven server is still there and I was adamant to offer committed players a better option. A promising option.
Ultimately, our aim is to offer a friendly, roleplay-driven experience with committed staff. We are doing this by expanding our team significantly. Our team will include: Helper < Moderator < Lead Moderator < Administrator < Technician < Manager < Owner. In-order to further expand, we are launching sub-teams, these include: Media/Application/Discord.
We will be offering nation leaders the ability to use Limited Creative within their first week of peace. This was a tough decision to make, but we truly believe this will enhance the roleplay experience overall. I must mention, Limited Creative will not be sold!
Over the last few weeks, the team have been working around the clock to focus on war rules, we know this is important to players and must be right from the start. Luckily, with the help of Fluffycop we have found a system that is fair but challenging whilst maintaining healthy roleplay. Please find it here.
Character Applications! Why have them? Again, our focus is quality and quantity of roleplay. By having applications, your character becomes valued. No one wants to submit an application every-week, you will become more vigilant of your actions in-game and decide your fate carefully.
Our plugins are carefully configured by our Technician to enhance roleplay throughout. We give you ability to mute channels, allowing you to focus on roleplay without the distraction of OOC. Custom locks! This plugin is unique to us and has not been seen on any other civilization server. It allows you to pick locks, your chests can be configured with a variety of locks some easy, some hard. Thief’s everywhere!
Finally, our map is fully customised by the excellent AllyJamy who has worked for years fine-tuning the world to match with realism. You can find our Dynmap here.
