Happy birthday to WildStar, Crossout, and World War 2 Online

The beginning of informal summer is a favorite time for MMO launches, which also means it’s prime time for birthdays and anniversaries. WildStar, for example, has a birthday I’ll always remember, as it rather inconsiderately released while I was in the hospital having a baby. She and it are both four this year, although she isn’t getting a month of presents and events as WildStar players are. There’s a special anniversary pack in the cash shop right now too.

“Throughout the whole month we’re running a series of WildStar’s most lucrative bonus events on a weekly rotation, offering you out-of-this-world benefits from four different events back-to-back. But that’s not all! With Starfall there will also be a unique reward pack delivered to your Account Inventory just for logging in each week! Make sure you transmat to Nexus every week in June to claim your rewards and take full advantage of the bonus events.”

Gaijin’s tank MMO Crossout is celebrating three years this week too: three years since its first closed alpha (it’s currently been in open beta for a full year). It’s running deals for both PC and console to celebrate.

Finally, here comes World War II Online, which has just turned 17 years old – you might remember it from the era when it called itself Battleground Europe, but now the original game name is back. The game’s just patched in the “long awaited High Explosive and Kinetic Energy audits,” according to Steam.

“[E]xplosives are significantly more lethal and non-explosive projectiles will function according to historical properties. Several new close support vehicles have also been added to the game. The naval game has received some love and now you may ride on an FMB. We’ve also audited turret and ammunition reload speeds for tanks. This is one of the most significant updates in terms of improving the quality of game play that we’ve been able to offer in a long time. The players have been asking, and now CRS has delivered. We appreciate your support and can’t wait to see you in-game.”

Happy birthday!

Battleground Europe is 17 years old now? I remember when I bought the CD for it. TAXI TO VICTORY!

I played from Day 1 as a tank commander with the Canada Corps. I was then the best time gaming I had ever had at the time. Nothing beat 15 tanks from Canada traveling a 1/2 hr picking up soldiers along the way riding on our tanks and fighting against a German held town in a massive “war”. Good times!

With Wildstar there is a difference though, a child gets smarter with age.

Because the decisions, has the game been any more stupid.

Uh, yeah? Wildstar may not have the following, but the game itself now is great. They had shit decisions for sure, but most of these were completely reversed.

The first WS year was way more stupid than anything WS is right now.

I need to find a way to play wildstar more aside from the odd quest or two. Just not enough time to play everything, sigh.
