Happy 10 Year Old Release Day Forgotten Hope 2
« on: 14-12-2017, 14:12:39 »
That's right, It's been 10 years! since Forgotten hope 1.0 was released.

14th of December, 2007



The release news post: http://forgottenhope.warumdarum.de/news.php?id_news=221

Oh man, I wish I would have prepared something for this, art piece, wallpaper, a song, anything really, but truth is I forgot until I looked at the date today and realized it looked familiar.

It's been 10 glorious years since we opened the North African front for invasion, and what an amazing ride it's been! We've seen additions after additions of equipment, weapons, vehicles, locations and armies. We've seen the Western Europe front open, and countless of tournaments and map packs from the talented community that formed around FH.

After even more vehicles, equipment, armies and locations, and countless of developer commits, we finally released the long awaited Eastern Front, and still the community outdid itself with more tournaments and map packs, and even still people are playing, nigh on 2 years later.

I salute the developers of Forgotten Hope for Battlefield 1942
I salute the developers of Forgotten Hope 2
I salute the communities that have formed around FH through out the years, that have worked unselfishly on amazing tournaments and map packs
But most importantly I salute you, the players of FH & FH2!

Thank you all so much for your participation and involvement with this amazing game/mod/community.

Since Joe tagged me on Facebook and everything, I though I could try to remember my forum password and come say hi.

Hi. And happy birthday!

Well, that picture with the pink tutu is still out there somewhere...

Anyway, 10 years and still alive, not bad, it didn't feel that long :D

Even if I only come to play FH2 once every week or so, and even if I´m not really good in it -
I can say I am really lucky to know such a great mod, one of the best games ever.

So, happy birthday, Forgotten Hope and big thanks to the developpers and the community who still improve and play this beautiful game! ;D

Happy Birthday FH2! ;D

A 10 Year Old Mod that still has a community strong enough to get a full server on weekends. Nothing short of amazing.

Hope we can get a release soon to give these dedicated fans more toys to play with. :)
