HI Im Lt.Ryan i just joined about a day ago,also when will the battle start also do i have to download all of the allied custom maps?

11-20-2003, 05:33 PM
Welcome! Battles should start in about 3 weeks or so, and there's no need to download any maps as of yet as the map list for this campaign will not have been finalised.

However, ensure you have Forgotten Hope and the new map pack that comes with it!

BFE members are regularly on TeamSpeak playing FH on the server and you are most welcome to join in.

I have fh and its mappack so ill come sometime, also i hope glen wont get jealous i hope he understands. In i forums i wont really be a Lt. Ill just be a beginner. How come it says we joined on jan 1970? It's 2003. Also since we're in the naval group will there only be naval battles?

I hate to break it to you, but in the forums people with Lt. in their name are actual lieutenants. BFE follows the Chain of Command pretty strictly (part of the fun of the tournament).

You can, however, work your way up to Lt. Ryan. But for now you're stuck with Pvt. Ryan or whatever tag format your division requires.

not that Major Burner ever was a Major...

Don't worry, you're not only fighting in Naval Battles, and you won't only be British either, it's just a theme for your division. You'll fight in all theaters.

Yes, that's how it will work indeed. Perhaps i was a bit unclear in my first post :)

To upgrade to a more advanced soldier to i have to post more?

11-20-2003, 11:21 PM
No, thats how some forums work, but this is a tourament, these forums are to release important annoucments and division info, to advance in ranking you must,

1. Be an active soldier in forums,battles and practices

2. Lead during battles/practices on TS.

3. Dont talk back to officers

4. Help out felow soldiers with problems.

5. Make strategy suggestions to you CO/XO's.

The difference with using the Lt. and MajorBurner using Major is simple. The allies use the rank in their tags, like Lt. Capt. and such. Axis use symbols for their ranks, ****, ~~, ^ and such. So Major didn't mean what it does for the allied side.

uhm what do u mean " a play" did u mean i play?

if that is ur question, yes it will efect ur rank. for example if u play like 5 battles and every battle u are there for like 8 hours, follow orders, capture flags, and u give suggestions then u might very well be promoted. but dont expect to go from private all the way to supreme allied commander in 2 battles or even the whole campaign for that matter.

Corporal is the rank after private right?

Lance Corporal is after Private. Please refer to the division headquarters to see all of the ranks and their order.
