Dear Players,

as you know, we at [762] are always trying to offer you the best possible Forgotten
Hope 2 experience. Many improvements have been made over the last year, a major
step in that effort was the Community Map Pack (CMP). To support the hard work
of our mappers, we have a few changes prepared.

Starting from April 10th, [762] will host a new server: [762] RANKED #4 [PREM].
It will offer certain improvements over the current [762]#1 - [762]#3 servers.




  • From 14.00 UTC - 22.00 UTC there will be an admin present (guaranteed).
  • Players with access to the server will see a subforum area on www.762-ranking.de.
  • There they can determine next week's map pool by a vote every Sunday.
  • The available map pool will include FH2 stock maps, the CMP, the Pacific maps.
  • Players on the server will have mini-admin rights to start mapvotes when they wish.
  • Players on the server will gain early access to new CMP content/pretests.


(new Japanese knee mortar for next PMC)

Now to business. We want to be able to support our mappers. This will cost money.
So how much will you have to invest to support our efforts?

a) 10€ for 6 Months.
b) 18€ for the whole year.


With the second option, you will receive a 15% XP bonus on your account in the [762] ranking.
If you are interested in joining the effort, please register at www.762-ranking.de and send
me a PM ( x4funI<ODIUM>I ), I will provide you with the necessary Paypal Data.
These admins/players have already decided to support us:

While I greatly admire your efforts (and the mappers') I don't think further splitting of the player base is a good idea... Especially if this server will be premium only. The population of FH2 simply isn't stable enough for sustaining this "experiment"... Not to mention people usually play the BF2 mods to get away from the EA/Activision Battle Duty Modern Quarters 4 Premium Elite  YATATATATATATATATATATATA dealings ... I'm getting off topic xD

Good luck though!

Yeah RAnDOOm, you were close to the next rank, anyway and with that +15% XP it
only took 2-3 games on [762] to make you rank up. Thanks for supporting us for one year!

Edit: YES I fixed your name now, all is capital letter that shall be capital. :P

Yeah I don't see how adding another server will help the game.  There are already servers with the custom maps for free and they are hardly ever populated.  Unless maps are "official" people just don't take the time to download them, its sad because several of the maps are of nice quality.

im sorry for all you first responders paying for the new server, should have just put money toward a "dev" that can churn out h.q. product quickly.  would have been better money spent!

Nice, I haven't played for a while, so that XP boost should be a good opportunity to catch up a bit.  8)

Finally being able to play with an illustrious circle of people that know how to play this game is a very good thing. The public servers are certainly not good for my blood pressure. The next time you get killed at the main-base for a tank or plane, think about a 762 Premium membership.

 Well, where to start............

 (1): I really like the following: Especially "3" in bold.

- From 14.00 UTC - 22.00 UTC there will be an admin present (guaranteed).
- Players with access to the server will see a subforum area on www.762-ranking.de.
- There they can determine next week's map pool by a vote every Sunday.
- The available map pool will include FH2 stock maps, the CMP, the Pacific maps.
- Players on the server will have mini-admin rights to start mapvotes when they wish.

 (2): But then money was mentioned........

-  I could care less about rank or experience points. I kill many players of higher rank on a regular basis with my crafty abilities. I play for the team win, not for individual awards.

-  Perhaps this offer would be better suited for tournament players or 762 itself

- If this were for one of 762's regular servers & didnt potentially split the small fanbase, i would really consider it even though im not sure of the currency exchange rate in US Dollars  :-*

- If you are going to start putting mapper on a payroll, i may quit my job and start teaching myself how to make FH2 maps  ;D



(3):- I would like to open my own paypal account & charge tournament players for squad leader training

[...]

Now that you're saying it, I just realize how the declining Euro exchange rate towards the US Dollar
may screw us and the targeted income. Some of the mappers are US-based and if we have to
convert back into US $, before we can wire the money into their accounts, we may lose money.

GeoPat won't like this...
