Enlighten me. Also what's the player population like these days?

If you're gonna buy either then you should buy Verdun. Tannenberg is generic, boring, and bland. Verdun is pretty fun, except for bugs.

Verdun playerbase: https://steamcharts.com/app/242860

Tannenberg playerbase: https://steamcharts.com/app/633460

Neither game is particularly large, but Verdun's is noticeably bigger especially when you actually try to play. Although I will say this, if you intend to play on a server like Asia or Australia be prepared to see virtually nobody as Verdun's playerbase is almost exclusively limited to North America or Europe. You can play on these regions of course but obviously your ping would be quite high. This problem is only even worse in Tannenberg, to the point where I've seen even the US servers pretty much empty.

This one is more popular and imo has better gameplay (I prefer trench war than manœuver.).

i prefer tannenberg, more dynamic gameplay
Verdun is dying. At peaktime maybe 3 matches available. Challenging to find a balanced and fun match.

Lol it has been like that for years, I remember sometimes there were only 1 server with like 40 people maximum.

No, this is not correct.

There were more people online and the average skill was better. Today a lot beginners are around who do not know the basics of the game.

If you plan on playing online only get Verdun, it has more players.

If you just want to have fun playing with bots offline get Tannenberg, its maneuver gamemode is superior to frontlines(when playing against bots).

Wow, if 150 players peak in Verdun is more than in Tannenberg, wow Tannenberg must be poor.

Both games have very small active populations, unfortunately. I stopped worrying about it a while ago, and just accepted that bots are the way forward these days.

I did not buy and I will not buy Tannenberg. Just so disappointed by the Development Team's performance with Verdun, I will not give any money to them again.

You don't say.

Well, all I can say is, good luck in finding another WWI game like these ones. You won't, just in case you were wondering.

Not so much competition in this niche.

But still some errors which are there since Beta or even earlier.

That's because most developers won't touch this particular war with a ten foot barge pole. No clear good guys or bad guys, and America only enters when it's almost over. We should support those few who take the risk with this time period.

As for those long standing errors, which ones are you referring to exactly?

(some cringe circle jerk about how this war isn't covered a lot therefore long live devs)

MG's glitching into terrain

Bots being invincible (has been happening since they were added)

Random server crashes and disconnects

Spawning into terrain, under the map, etc

Hit reg and netcode that has always been poor

Grenades exploding away from where the actual model is

Wex doesn't even work (this one is more recent but figured I'd add it since it's been brought up at least once a week for months now)

And that's just to name a few, if you want more I'll be happy to expand that list.
