Hey everyone!

We are switching over to our new forums software tomorrow morning.
They will be brought down around 1000 Central. We expect a 1-3 hour down time.

The new forums will use "single sign-on". This means you will no longer require a forums AND game account. Your game account will be your forums account.

We are also making some adjustments to the forums rules with the new forums. Make sure you take a moment to read them when the new forums go live!

Please keep in mind this is a big change for all of us. There will be an adjustment period for everyone, but we believe the benefits of the new software are worth it.

Mini FAQ

Q: What is the new software?
A: Vanilla

Q: Will I keep my Veteran status on my profile?
A: Yes!

Q: Will I keep my join date or post count?
A: Unfortunately not

Q: Why a new forums?
A: Short answer, we needed up to date software that could be regularly updated for the launch of the game. Having SSO will promote more activity in the forums and lower the barrier to entry. We're getting a new website and stats page as well for launch, this is just phase 1 of bringing our web presence up to date.

The new forums have made me decide that it's time to enlist in the US Army.
