The Men of War multiplayer trial thread went OK, so I've decided to make another, without the information of the now expired multiplayer trial, so to not confuse poor souls. Feel free to ask me if you want things added to the front page. For those who don't know what Men of War is, it's a World War 2 Real Time Tactics. It is very similar to Soldiers Heroes of World War 2. Where you command infantry, tanks and artillery pieces to fight. [B]Features[/B] -A very awesome editor which completely took me by surprise. Great work! -Best voice acting ever. (With armour like this, it will take us all the way to Berlin!) -Decent singleplayer, which I have yet to actually complete. -Highly fun multiplayer.

Awesome game. Missions are quite fun too. Also, if anyone is helpful enough, teach me to fuck around with the editor :v:
I suddenly realise you can edit thread names. Vote me dumb. Edit: OK... apparently not. Vote me dumb for both cases of being dumb.
Stop yelling Alexhei, you'll bring the germans down on us! Germans! Quick! Hide!

Fucking commando missions :argh:
The only thing I hate are the stealth missions. The voice acting is so bad it's good, though. :p Damn, now I feel like playing epic tank battles again. Any one up for a match later today?
Picture of map i'm currently developing, and .. fixing. [img_thumb]http://thepointofbuilding.net/uploads/mow_editor%202010-05-23%2019-10-16-22.jpg[/img_thumb]
In my opinion, the SHWWII/MOW series is one of the best set of games I have played. I still have yet to play it online, though.
David, get a couple of friends and play online regularly. It's really fun! [editline]02:59PM[/editline] Just make sure you don't play against USSR. It's fucking annoying :P
[b]ARMOR LIKE THIS WILL TAKE US STRAIGHT TO BERLIN[/b] all that reminds me of this game
[QUOTE=Paravin;22143364][B]ARMOR LIKE THIS WILL TAKE US STRAIGHT TO BERLIN[/B] all that reminds me of this game[/QUOTE] [monotone]German, quick, hide![/monotone] Though I've heard the Russian voice acting is actually quite decent.
I think the SP is way too hard for me so I'm just playing online.
Are there any good mods for this game? Would be cool with a 18th century mod
Also, single player missions always feel to turn into "Hey dude, here's 10 guys. Now hold off those 60 Germans/Brits and their 20 tanks."
You get 10 guys only if you lose your other 40 earlier in the mission. Besides, light the tanks on fire, then capture them.
Fire all you want, your Tiger won't penetrate any of their armour. Then suddenly a troll stag comes rolling along and 1 shots it.
I hate when you fella's complain about armor. It doesn't matter which exact tank you use, check the specifications before buying tanks. The mm of armor, the slope, the mm and penetration of the cannon. For example, if your T34 can penetrate 70mm of armor from 15 meters, and the enemy elephant has 120mm armor from the front, and 65 mm in the back, approach it at the back and fire off a shot. Then prepare to mow down the crew as they exit. I love the infantry in this game. I always end up using my tank crewmen as decent infiltrator troops. Jack up the machine gun from the destroyed tank and take the dynamite, then go tank hunting. Or camp a balcony in a town. TIS GOOD
Also CoH has really spoiled my view on Panzer IVs. They've got decent armour on the front but only the front, and it's a really narrow tank too so it's stupid easy to get flanked.
This game has very low grade graphics.
[QUOTE=gol4z03;22146876]This game has very low grade graphics.[/QUOTE] They're fine.
[QUOTE=gol4z03;22146876]This game has very low grade graphics.[/QUOTE] Considering it dates back to 2005, they're decent graphics for an RTS.
Wow, from the screenshots, I guessed you can BECOME one of your units and fight on a first-person level, is that right? If so, fucking awesome
[QUOTE=Viper202;22146918]Considering it dates back to 2005, they're decent graphics for an RTS.[/QUOTE] 2005? Thought the game was released in 08. [editline]05:11PM[/editline] Not really first-person, more like third-person, yeah a direct control mode, it's useful with tanks and flamers.
It's incredibly useful as an AT rifle guy. Most fun weapon in the game if you ask me.
[QUOTE=MrJazzy;22146945]2005? Thought the game was released in 08. [editline]05:11PM[/editline] Not really first-person, more like third-person, yeah a direct control mode, it's useful with tanks and flamers.[/QUOTE] Ok turns out it released in 2009, just a bad date from a mod got me mixed up. [editline]06:32PM[/editline] If anyone wants to play on 1.17.5, I'm willing to host now. My steamname is El Presidenté.
Also, sniping tank crew with AT guns. I made people rage by shooting tank tracks from the sides with AT rifles before. So much fun. Then you hide and wait for the poor sod to go outside to try and repair it. Pow, headshotted with Armour-Piercing ammo.
the multiplayer is full of russians fucking annoying Like on every server they speak russian
[QUOTE=Orkel;22147932]the multiplayer is full of russians fucking annoying Like on every server they speak russian[/QUOTE] They must think it's annoying that you speak English.
[QUOTE=Teh Soviet;22148547]They must think it's annoying that you speak English.[/QUOTE] English is the language that should be used, it's the universal language The fact that russians are ruining my online experience by refusing to speak english makes MP only playable with friends, because otherwise you can't understand what people are saying regarding to the match going on in public games How am I supposed to understand warnings and locations of enemy troops if only they understand it, the russians don't care about non-russian players I must have played around a dozen or more matches and only one of them had people who spoke english
You do know this game was made by an Ukrainian developer, right?
