I'm willing to pick this 4-pack up and hand out the keys, and only ask that you donate the equivalent amount to the server/Vander's server fund, as the case may be.


I'm in

I bought "Verdun" when it was early access. It was a bit clunky then and hard as hell to hit anything. I couldn't find where I had downloaded it to so I had to buy it again. I must say that it is a lot smoother now and far easier to hit an enemy. The maps do look awsome and they are not all just trenches.

OK, I picked up the Verdun 4-pack, which I could swear was on sale til May 5th, but was not on sale when bought it today, May 5th. We'll see about that says me!
Yeah, I know, dealing with steam (little 's') is a freaking joke. :lol:

Anyways, Macus and Speck spoke up for one of the keys. Anyone interested in the last key?
I only ask that you make a donation to your squadron's server fund, in this case $14 equivalent and save yourself $8 from full game price. A deal too good to be true, eh?

Let me know.

PS: anyone know how to gift these keys? I don't want to fek up and give them to some wanker in S. Africa by mistake, you know what I mean... :roll:

I picked up one of Bandy's keys and have been playing a bit. I'm not really a big fan of fps games but I gotta say this one is kinda fun. I die. All of the time. I have though taken a few bad guys out with me. I had one round where I almost had as many kills as killed! For me that was a major achievement. :lol:

I had a couple of matches last night. I created a new squad called "The Syndicate" so that I could practice as an NCO. As NCO you are armed with a pistol and a pair of binoculars. It takes two hits with a pistol to kill an enemy (unless it is a headshot) and the binoculars call rally points and mortar strikes.

I think that this game has taken over as my number one fps from Red Orchestra.

I know Skydance plays late into the night (sometimes :wink: ), so maybe he can host a rally sometimes where the N.Amer's can attend and teach us the ropes.

Have to admit, I HATE the rotating map. Its like it's designed to get you lost, really, who the fek rotates a map besides a woman!??!! I feel a 'Bandy' post coming on...

Hey Mike,

As I understand TIR does not work but suppose we can get by without it in a FPS. BUT if I heard you correctly yesterday you said, "Good luck" re: remapping Verdun keystrokes. Please tell us what you tried to do and any outcome.

Would hate to hit my head against the wall if somebody else has already done it and got bloody...
