Hey Forgotten Hope community!

I know it sometimes seems, that you dont get enough attention by the dev team. Unfortunately we had to stop the updates, but maybe I can explain again, that this should not be aimed against our own gamers. FH is near being complete. Actually we discussed an open beta some time ago. So why didn't we do it? Several reasons, but one and the most important I think is the lesson we learned when releasing FH42. You know, it took long to get to a near-playable version of FH2. All the statics, the general design, the models and skins that needed to be far better than in our old game. If you put so much work into something you are really proud of, you want it to be near perfect when it meets a major audience. There are so many little things that can go wrong, every code in the game, every point of every animation. And our first release for BF42, 0.5, was a disaster. (some of you might remember) Mods that develope their work for 2 years and then release a 90% complete version will totally destroy your experience. Why have you waited 2 years to get a game that crashes when to many smoke grenades are fired or that puts you onto an uninspired 08/15 map? We want this release to be a little milestone for us. I recently logged onto a server of FH42. At first I was a little suprised, that FH still has more players than most mods for BF2. And then I talked to the people on the servers. It felt good playing this. And hearing the people, that seemed to really care what we do - and just enjoyed the game. FH2 will have to be good to convince them. And it will have to be good to convince new players. And we are more then willing to meet these two requirements.

But it's not only us. And I would like to thank you for your support. There is no real team and fans. We are a community. Forgotten Hope. And this evolved to be more than just a game and some players. Being FH gamer somehow binds you to the game and others. And luckily enough people are willing to take part in this. "Fans" become "Devs" or "Betatesters", and "Devs" choose to stay "Fans". But what really matters is our aim, to create a good game and a strong community. To give Forgotten Hope, this complex building, something it can stand on. We all are building this base.

Long live Forgotten Hope.

As much as I want to play this, it really does need to be something special. We all know how most of the other BF2 mods turn out and I think FH2 definitely has the potential to change all that.

Keep up the good work!

Actually, you wouldnt commit suicide for a game (ok, some morons does, but i think you have brain enough to not do that, Be4viz):
