yes, everyting is possible :), but i dont think so. not even aapg was there implemented because all is done with steam. but go on with playing, i am sure ELiZ did its own honor system which is already implemented at aa25assist. he did show me my honors at this time and it was 113. so there will be a way out of this little missery, stay tuned and play :)

Just wondering if Battletracker database goes down, does Assist let you log in anymore?

yes, this was the first reason ELiZ did his own honor system. to be independent from bt. done exactly for such a moment. also its own auth system as you know.

would be nice if there was also the old ranking system (Recruit to General)

well I'll sit it out and wait

Until then

I'm actually surprised they kept the website and all its related services online up to this date, i don't remember seeing many ads and they probably didnt make even for the cost of keeping everything up.

I'm wondering if he would ever consider selling the website as is and for how much. It might be worth looking into. I'm really curious about how much upkeep is and I would definitely consider paying for it if it means keeping new registrations in this game alive.

I will also try to get a hold of Eliz to see if I could get some help on making a separate account manager to replace BT but I realize he hasn't be active here for over a year. I just need to know how Assist interacts with BT to try to replicate it with minimal change to the Assist code.

I sent an email to homey asking for the upkeep cost or a database dump for AA players although I have very little faith in him actually responding.

Assist should still work without BT, but then we will have to create a front end to account creation and maybe user stats. You can get into the stuff if you want Killa.

Anyway, just to be able to track players and servers and in the end we all know that there will be some solution as it has always been.
For all future generations, never to be forgotten!!
