My fellow Soldateers all around the world,
I am happy to announce that Soldat's World Cup is about to return for it's 2014 version.
The most important information comes first: Sign-ups will open today, 17th of June and the cup will start on 1st of August.
Mixed national teams
As we are pretty much aware of the activity loss in Soldat we decided to be a bit more lenient with "mixed national teams". However, this does also depend on the level of activity and the amount of signed up countries. We will make a final decision regarding this once we reach the final stage of the sign-up time which probably is around the start of the final week of sign ups (starting friday, 25th of July). Yet the chances are good that we might allow people to merge, even if they're not from the same country. We don't know any details yet, but we will keep you updated.
Of course we will allow multiple teams on...

Ah finally! We are so close to the 1.6.7 release, just this one release candidate (hopefully) and we are ready for the final release!
You will notice some minor improvements in the installer which are not in the changelog.
I still need to figure out why some people cannot apply the patch though.
So if you have issues with that, please contact me via irc on #soldat.devs.
Please note that this patch is only for 1.6.6 (as the real update will be for 1.6.6).
So you cannot update the beta client and server (you can try to install a temporary version of 1.6.6 and apply the update - to see if the patch works).
There will be no patch for 1.6.7rc1 -> 1.6.7 so don't update your real game yet.
Have fun testing!
