The name should have at least some connection to the game, most people including myself probably originally skipped this because they didn't know it was supposed to be a cool WWII shooter. My first thought when I saw this topic was a game about cars with guns or something, and I didn't bother to check until the topic became popular.
Agreed. I understand that they kept the old name because they didn't want to lose their old mod followers, but that was a pretty short-sighted decision. These days, basically no one (including myself) knows about the old mod. I'm glad I discovered Traction Wars through these forums but otherwise, there is no way I would have thought it was a WWII shooter.

It's too late to change it now of course ... I just think it's an unfortunate decision that will hamper the mod's popularity well past its first release.

Check out my Red Orchestra, FH2, and shooting videos!

I think it's a fine name. So many games out there have names that don't say much (if anything at all) about the game itself anyway - or only mean something if you already know what the game is about.

Yet you are still here, Hockeywarrior. You did find us and you will (probably & hopefully) download the game once it's out.

We don't need Call of Duty popularity, we're already creating a game for what most likely is a niche market. And with a niche market the thing is that the people who want something that isn't very popular often search well enough until they find it. And even if we don't become super popular on release, it wont really matter because there's no eye for profit. Once it's out people will come, because it's free. Who doesn't try free stuff?

 Wow! That looks fantastic!




 Question:

 Will TW have flags to capture? Will it play like traditional Battlefield games?

IMO Forgotten Hope is a pretty sweet name though.  ;D
It is, when I first heard of it and played it I thought it was just some cool & edgy name for a WW2 shooter. Only years after I heard the story from Lobo.

Can you share the story of the Forgotten Hope name, or say if it is allready written somewhere in the forums. I'm quite curious  ::)

Forgotten Hope was meant to become a historically accurate modification about the early days/weeks/months/years of the Second World War, when all hope looked lost against the invincible German war machine.

Poland, France, etc. was meant to be the scene for FH. Then someone started making mid/late-war equipment. And here we are.

Bardia is the earliest official map, set on January 3rd 1941. Last one is Meuse River (December 22nd 1944). The Russian front will include a map in 1945 though.

Are you willing to work the map with me??I have nice-tank-map ideas but now learning how to.Other should join:Turkish,Muzdin,Jimi,LazMan12,... You cant only demand.Most of you are 5-6 years here. Meanwhile you could be profesionals and now bring French maps to French -allreadywaiting- army.
