The official Steam release of EiR is set for 6 June, 2018, at 7 AM CEST. This is to coincide as closely as possible with the initial D-Day beach landings, most of which occurred between 6:30 and 7:30 in the morning on 6 June, 1944. Please note that this date will not be changed for any reason whatsoever.

The Steam release will download the AutoUpdater to your PC, thus we of the 'Old Guard' won't have to worry about getting the Steam version of EiR.

We should hope that the mod's release will garner at least some attention, and we can expect new arrivals. These new arrivals are to be treated with the utmost respect; we should avoid driving off potential players at all costs.

To this end, I'm going to be cracking down on stacks and griefing activities. If I catch wind of anybody intentionally stomping the ever-loving shit out of new arrivals enough times (the exact amount is TBD--stick with "just don't do it") then I'll be swinging the perma-banhammer. I'm not out to get anybody, I'm not enacting some vendetta. What I am doing is looking out for the noobs.

If word spreads that the EiR community is a collection of toxic, stacking, tryhard scumbags, then we're sunk. Yes, I understand that that's exactly what we are, but let's at least TRY to pretend otherwise. Nobody will want to play the mod, and all of the effort expended in resurrecting this ancient relic will be for naught.
---------
All of this text can be condensed down into the following 4 points:

1 - Stacking against noobs is prohibited. Do it and expect punishment ranging from 'mild yelling-at in Discord' to 'ultra-super-force-you-to-smurf-like-Wind-banned'.

2 - Intentionally creating balanced games and providing proof of such activity with replays and screenshots will be rewarded. I've decided that I might get into the (bad) habit of handing out the odd reward unit for good behavior--this includes meme units like the Maus, TA, and SPergshing--all of which will be making a return as reward units, though they will only be obtainable if they're handed out by myself or Lothen.

3 - Recruiting old EiR vets back to the mod will yield a bounty of exactly 1 Internet Point. Points are redeemable; you may helicopter your epeen at a cost of 1 point per rotation.
      - Note: Malgoroth, Lionel, EG, Tym, and Groundfire all yield 2 Internet Points. Smokaz and Icelandic will yield 10. If you find or think you have found Deadbolt and/or nugnugx, please report their location and have them committed to the nearest madhouse to spare all of us from never-ending doom.

4 - EiR veterans--which I will refer to henceforth as 80gunners--will be receiving preferential treatment. You've put up with a lot throughout the years and I intend to acknowledge your dedication to the mod. This won't manifest itself in any specific way, but I might grant some latitude to you guys regarding behavior. Please don't take this and run with it. Remember rule 1. Rug is probably exempt because he's a cooler version of Shab <3.

I want to ensure we have a 100% decision on the process before we do the wipe.
If not, then I wipe, then someone gets something they shouldn't, then it gets abused, then the shit hits the fan and then I ban shab.

His name was Smokaz

I feel like if Smokaz and Shab met up it would be a 50/50 tossup to see which one of them robbed the other first.
Tries to convince people he's a good guy,says things like this. Scumbag Shab.

So much for symbolism and not moving the date. Steam's shitty auto-approval system still hasn't allowed me to actually release the mod, and on top of that, the email address that actually sends out registration emails seems to have never been updated. So we can't release and even if we did, nobody would be able to activate their accounts after registering.

Why does the universe fucking hate me?

Delayed until 18 June, because I literally threw a dart at a board covered with numbers and that's what I hit.
