If this is the wrong place moderators please move it.
I have noticed many players trying to join the Heat of Battle server and being disconnected. I suspect that these players do not have the 1.01 patch and this can be found at http://www.heatofbattle.net/files.asp?p=
Perhaps the admin here can add the patch to their download section.
Are there still active HoB servers? I'd like to play it, I also found some servers but they were always empty. :uhm:
I also found some servers but they were always empty
Yep, always empty because its a pile of crap (in mho). Worst hud Ive ever seen and the maps are rank. It was never a popular mod because its not up to par, and players recognised it.
Thats a matter of opinon Tally. [color=red]EDIT FLAME[/color]
It was the first mod launched for CoD, introducing new weapons and game type before any other mod out there. It was first with just about all new features other than sprint and has a far superior deployable MG. The weapons are far more balanced with a touch of realism. Certainly a headshot from ANY weapon will kill with a single shot. The first with cookable nades, the first with the SVT40, the first with a deployable bayonet, the first with the British sten etc etc. You can read more about it's content here http://www.codboards.com/showthread.php?t=6971
I can't honestly say that I have ever seen more than one player come in and complain that the mod was NOT up to par, quite the reverse, which is why players keep returning and why we still get a full server from time to time. One player (now two unless it was Tally) in 3.5 years is not bad.
The most active server can be found at IP 126.96.36.199
Come and try it for yourselves and make your own decision.

Yeah, right. In the 4 months since I've been monitoring Mike's server, never and I mean never has it been full.
Most often, its empty. And the best Ive ever seen it is with 6 players on. Truely popular!!! LAMO :D :D :D
But ... if you want proof positive that HOB is a POS, and that nobody plays it, check this thread out:
Check all 3 pages, as it reveals the truely desparate, crying out for attention to a dying mod. Max players at any one point: 8. Kind of contradicts this:

8 players? Whoopee do! LMAO :p
Haven't been monitoring very well then, have you Tally. Last Saturday, 1st July, the server was 10 v 10. You are right - to a point. The mod did see a fall in popularity, then Lazerous came up with an idea that has breathed new life into the game. Check this post http://www.mikesmarauders.com/forums/forum_posts.asp?TID=3199&PN=1&TPN=2 Every Tuesday there is also a get together, although due to work, I tend to go to bed earlier now, so I miss the action. In fact, since Laz came up with the idea of a monthly game to fill the server, far more people are playing on a nightly basis. As for the "flame" you edited out, I hope you posted the contents in your admin section, as I specifically requested several other admins to check my post - knowing that you would edit it and there was nothing that untoward in it. Seems to me that you just don't like anything I post and you are letting your personal opinion of me interfere with your better judgement. BB1
PS I won't bother replying to this thread anymore, as you seem hell bent on getting me to step over the line, but if any other other readers want to test the game for yourselves and form your own opinion, please feel free to do so. I'm usually available on MSN, so feel free to message me and I'll ensure I'm on the server and give you a walk around and rotate maps to show you what is available.
LMAO :p Dont keep flattering yourself - I expressed an opinion about the mod. It has absolutely nothing to do with your connection with it.
You like COD1 and UO dont you? I still think they are awesome games - best Ive ever played. If your little self-indulgant theory about me not liking HOB was because of your connection with it, then by that same argument, I would be knocking COD1 and UO just because you like it. Wouldnt I?
Seems to me that you just don't like anything I post and you are letting your personal opinion of me interfere with your better judgement.
I think you are clearly speaking about yourself here m8. It is you that is allowing your personal dislike of me get in the way of your judgment, as you think my whole reason for being here is to come after you. Get over yourself man, and learn a little humility. My whole universe does not revolve around you (thank god!).
I dislike HOB. That is my "best judgment" on it.
As for the "flame" you edited out, I hope you posted the contents in your admin section, as I specifically requested several other admins to check my post - knowing that you would edit it and there was nothing that untoward in it.
Im the moderator here - not you. We dont like back-seat moderating here. I know all about your attempts to drop me in it here with the Admins, and they have all spectaularly failed. Reason being that its obvious to all the Admins here that your "reports" about me are malicious in nature.
You made a personal attack on me, insulted me, and so I edited it out. You wont be the first person on these forums not to agree with a moderators decision, and you wont be the last. But ultimately, we the moderators decide by our own good judgment what is and what is not "flame". You overstepped the mark, I edited it. Live with it, or leave. Its up to you. Just thank your lucky stars I didnt give you a warning about it as well.
You strike me as a person who fools themselves into thinking you never flame people. Yet I have seen (and caught) you doing this quite a few times. I would take a reality check if I were you - you need to wake up to the fact that you do indeed flame people, and often with little or no provocation.

back on topic, mkay?
As the OP won't bother to reply there is no longer use for this thread. The flamefest ends here
Oh and Tally, I didn't expect this from you...
