The 13th FH2 Campaign: Operation Avalanche Has Ended

From all of the Committee, Admins and Moderators we want to thank everyone
who took part in our thirteenth FH2 campaign.

Even though FH2 is an old game (but thankfully still receiving updates due to a small and dedicated team), it has been great to see our battle sever fillled with players looking to enjoy a more organised version of the game they still play on the public servers. We hope that CMP will be able to continue hosting and supporting FH2 campaigns for many more years into the future - and yes, we do have plans for campaigns reaching all the way into 2025!

Some interesting statistics from the campaign:

  • In total there were nearly 62,000 kills over the course of the 12 battles (including team kills).
  • The top three military hardware on the battlefield were artillery (both teams), and the Panzer IV H sitting in second place between Allied and Axis artillery.
  • There were a total of 1,060 kills made with bayonets, knives, entrenchment tools and spades.
  • 828 players were unlucky enough to step on an anti-personnel mine.

Get all the stats from Campaign 13 here

Before we thank those who have been involved in helping to bring this campaign together and helping to keep everything running throughout the past 14 weeks or so, I wanted to bring up a few talking points that occasionally arise during campaigns, but are usually ignored or forgotten about:
 

"This player is definitely using wall hacks / aim-bots / voodoo magic to cheat in the game!"

The admins hear this alot. And, as we all know, this is an old game with plenty of vulnerabilities that people will try to exploit. But, what we don't want in our community are CMP members who will openly accuse others of cheating, without evidence, just because they get killed when fighting a certain player.

That is not what this community is about.

There is every chance that you're just not as good as the other player and you need to deal with that.

We won't tolerate public accusations of cheating, and you could find yourself kicked and banned from battles, Discord and the forums, and if needs be, the CMP community.

However, that isn't to say they we don't take reports of cheating seriously. In the 13th campaign we received reports of players who were "definitely, 100%, without a doubt cheating" and for these players, the admins requested that they record and post their battle videos online for us to review. In some cases, players who were accused of cheating were already actively recording their own ganes and posting them online on a weekly basis!

As you may be able to tell from the lack of notices from us, we didn't see any of those reported for cheating, actually cheating, when we reviewed their battle footage (although voodoo magic is a little harder to check). In those instances, we consider them closed cases.

If you do feel that someone could be cheating in-game, do not post something in chat, on Discord, or the forums! Just PM one of the Committee members or an Admin and tell them of your concerns and it will be looked into.

 

"Arrgghh! My SL / CO / HQ sucks! Why didn't they attack / defend x flag instead?!"

We all love to think we are the greatest armchair generals, and as the admins sit in the Teamspeak channels, or read the various posts on Discord and the forums, we hear plenty of players who think they know of better tactics to win battles and ways in which their CO's are failing to lead, or their HQ is failing to do their job.

But, most of these people never take on any roles of responsibility such as leading a squad, or volunteering for HQ roles. They simply complain after every battle if there is a loss for their team.

I feel that now is the time for those people to put up, or shut up.

We have a new campaign starting in September (dates to be confirmed), that will take place in Normandy and last for the usual 12 battles. We are now looking for Squad Leaders, Commanding Officers and people to lead as HQ for both Allied and Axis. This can be in an international regiment, or one of the language regiments for either side.

For all those players that complain of poor tactics and lack of good leadership, now is your time to shine! Simply post a reply below this message and state that you'd like to part of the leadership in the next campaign, and what role you'd like to take.

If you decide you don't want to get involved in leadership roles in future campaigns, then please keep your thoughts to yourself on "how the battles should be fought". We are giving you a chance to prove that your tactics are sound, but if you won't step up then you have no right to complain about those who volunteer to lead at any level.


 

And Now For A Big Thank You To Everyone
Who Made This Campaign Possible

 

Our HQ's, CO's And SL's

Thank you to all those that helped to lead armies and squads in this campaign.

CptBocquier - Pr0z4c - Blander - SgtAlex
RayderPSG - Erwin - Kerst- Haraldt - Watchtower - Beariale
Nightwing - dumbbPunk - pozzo - GeoPat - Vlasov - Hawk - Swedish Green - Alan King
Magnet_Butt - Meadow - Sancho Panzer - Otto - TOBU94 - Diegothic

Without you volunteering to help lead, we would not have been able to run this campaign!


Mapping and Mapping Support

  • Papillon and Geopat
    There is a very small number of people who have volunteered their personal free time to work on the maps that are played in our campaigns. They have families, jobs and lives to lead that restricts how much time they can put into getting maps ready for campaigns.

    Time and again, Papillon and GeoPat step up to help in getting the maps ready in time for training and battle during the campaigns (amongst other mappers who have helped in previous campaigns as well). And again, for this campaign they have done all they can to get the maps ready to play. A huge thank you to them for everything they've done!

    Without the mappers we would not be having these wonderfully created custom campaigns, and instead you'd be playing the public maps and hoping they worked in a more organised setting.

    We need more people willing to take the time to learn to map, and will help in creating new maps, or refreshing existing maps. If you're interested, please also post below and we'll send you some links to resources on how to get started.

     

Game Servers and Teamspeak

  • kummitus
    Always working behind the scenes to keep the servers and Teamspeak running, and to keep things streamlined for the mappers as they edit and build the maps for release to the players.

    Without kummitus at the helm of working on the technical challenges of running the campaigns, Teamspeak, the forums and Discord, we would not have many of the features that help to bring a campaign together. Many thanks to him for all he does!

     

Forums, Graphics, Social Media and Community Support

  • RAnDOOm
  • Sir_Kowskoskey
  • Hawk
  • RayderPSG
  • Erwin
    RAnDOOm does a lot of the background work to get the campaigns ready, by helping to set up the forums, campaign interface, medals, ads, social media promotions, help officers and HQ get access to the forum areas.

    When we set the campaign live and open for everyone to register, you can guarantee that RAnDOOm has done a large proportion of the work to make all of this ready in time. Without him, we would surely struggle to get the campaign running in the short timeframes we have to have two campaigns per year!

    Sir_Kowskoskey, RayderPSG and Hawk are always hard at work speaking with the various language regiments and players to try and "gently" persuade them to sign up for leading roles in regiments, and to check on potential player numbers and preferences of side for each campaign. Their help in making sure that we have HQ and officers to lead in each campaign, and that for the most part everything runs smoothly, is greatly appreciated!

    Hawk and Erwin are the reason you see the wonderful campaign ads (Hawk's adverts for our campaigns are always masterpieces!) and Erwin does a great job of researching and creating the atmospheric map loading images you see on each of the campaign map (usually with an interesting quote from someone during WW2). They really help to put some shine and finishing touches to the campaigns and maps!

     

Map Balancing and Feedback

  • Hawk
  • RayderPSG
    A perhaps thankless task, because there are always plenty that complain about the weapons balance on campaign maps, but Hawk and RayderPSG do an amazing job of testing and researching the weapons, vehicles and planes used on the maps to do their best to keep everything as balanced as it can be.

    Behind the scenes there is a lot of discussion about what should be placed on a map, and both Hawk and RayderPSG focus on balance without bringing in any personal bias if they happen to also be playing in, or leading a squad. A huge thank you to them for trying to make each battle equal and fair for both teams!


     

AND FINALLY A MASSIVE THANK YOU TO YOU, THE PLAYERS WHO JOINED OUR CAMPAIGN!

We are so pleased that many of you have come to find CMP as a home where you can enjoy gaming with likeminded people.

We hope that we can continue to grow this community, expand the games we play,
and encourage others to take the lead on new games that we can come together and play.

If any of you have a game you are passionate about and think it fits with our community, then PM a Committee member,
or an admin and tell us about it! We may be able to help support you in setting up a group within CMP.


 

Donating To CMP
Without donations to help cover the costs for servers and software we cannot continue to create and host FH2 campaigns, support new games when possible; as well as run the forums, Teamspeak and Discord channels.

We are midway through 2023 and we need members to step up and donate whatever they can afford to help cover the monthly community costs - even a few Euros will help.

You can use the button below to make a single or monthly donation to CMP, or use the buttons on the side bar of the Home page.

Just putting more attention to the message above.  The next campaign is very close to start.

There are still spots available for higher positions. If any member is interested, send us a message.
