Note: I am not and have not been active on the forums for at least 2 years so don't expect any contact with me on there.



If a member of staff here has read this I really want to make my own guide as I've been playing Mud and Blood 2 since 2008 and I'm a loyal fan.

Done, edit away in here --Hyyppa

How do I add pictures to my guide?

Link them on a image uploading site such as Photobucket then a member of staff will upload them. --Death23 Talk Contribs My Guides Wiki Moderator 15:44, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

Cheers mate.


I can't edit my user page will someone please tell me how?

The reason is becouse you dont have User Page yet, I can create it for you. Other thing is the Strategy page your working on, please use the Preview and minor edit buttons to reduce the amount of edits and to reduce the amount of stuff on Recent Changes page --Hyyppa

Hallo again,

Please, Please use the preview edits, and minor edit button/tickbox (you can set the minor edits tickbox to be always checked in your preferences, to the top right of the page) when editing pages, as it removes spam from the recent changes and helps to spot decent adits from spam in some cases.

Thank you

--Death23 Talk Contribs My Guides Wiki Moderator 16:08, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

It's ok I think I've done it.

Actually, you are not. You have not used even once the minor edit, even though you have done lots of them. Fixing link, typo and that kind of small stuff is something to be marked as minor edit (first checkbox). You also havent used the preview button what is the middle one. There is really space for improvement when looking at the Recent Changes page. Lots of edits what could have been avoided just by simple thing as preview to see what kind the page will look like before Saving edits. --Hyyppa

Sorry, I know but I keep forgetting. I will try harder, promise. Thanks for helping me by the way.

Hey guys I just got 4 awesome medals in ONE game. They were: Remembrance Day ribbon, Guerilla Warfare Ribbon, Legion d'Honneur AND the Westpoint Commendation ribbon! How's that for awesome??!!!.

Congratulations! If you need to fix your sig, try >[[User:Jacob|Jacob]] [[User talk:Jacob|Talk]] --Death23 Talk Contribs My Guides Wiki Moderator 15:36, 11 November 2011 (UTC)

Wow I didn't know you are the head NCO, it's awesome you are talking to me.#

That obviously makes me talking to you even more awesome. Use a signature (~~~), please. Also remember to provide edit summaries when making edits. Thanks. -Branabus, minor

I haven't got a signature yet.

It means signing your posts to talk pages, it can be just simple as mine, here is code for you signature [[User:Jacob|Jacob]] And, you still need to start using the preview --Hyyppa


Actually, you do have an automatic signature when you type in ~~~~. You only have to create a signature if you want something different, like Death23 or Brana are using . --Riderx 12:04, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

So it's ok to just use my name as a signature and what's an edit summary?-Jacob

Also, how do you guys make some text into a hyperlink as I don't know how to do it properly -Jacob

Hyperlink explanation here and type edit summary to the box marked on picture below. You should read also this about some rules of editing. --Hyyppa


It's quite easy once you get the hang of it, we really aught to crop that picture though --Death23 Talk Contribs My Guides Wiki Moderator 15:30, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

'Ought' to, not 'aught'. Although theoretically, we could change the size with each different posting, but because there appears to be something wrong with the installation(?), you can't create thumbnails, and hence are unable to do so. Also, Jacob, use the 'show preview' button to prevent multiple edits. -Branabus, minor

Ok, will do and whoever fixed my hyperlinks:Thanks-Jacob

Looks like you've cropped the image, that's cool-Jacob

Just to let you know I've found a glitch with version 2.2.8b. sometimes when you buy a bunker or mortar pit it turns into a TRENCH. If someone could let Urb know that would be great-Jacob

Consecutive Editing

Jacob, I know this concern has been brought up before, but you should really stop making 3 consecutive edits to one page in a very short amount of time. The "Show preview" button at the bottom of the page will be very instrumental in helping you combine multiple edits together, so that instead of 3 minor edits you can make 1 major edit. Please count this as a warning about edit-spamming - if you continue action will be taken by the NCO's and officers of the wiki. --Riderx T~C~Guide Modicer

Last Strike

I see you have continued to ignore our warnings and keep flooding consecutive edits to your strategy page in a short amount of time. For that I am going to have to give you your final strike. Do not heed this warning and if you make more than 1 edit to a page in one hour continuously, you will be temporarily banned from editing the wiki. --Riderx T~C~Guide Modicer

I wasn't here yesterday as I was in Exeter and I didn't know what to say on the other days except that you're right. I'm gonna be off the wiki for a while until I've sorted myself out. See ya.-Jacob

I'm back

What you guys meant was that I wasn't leavng enough time inbetween edits and you were getting ticked off because of it. For that, I'm sorry. I've also read the editing help thing (but not advanced as it's too complicated) .-Jacob


Blimey, first game since the Christmas holidays and I find that on the game has been patched yet again and the first wave I get a Flak38 (it was a rubbish enemy it basically did next to nothing and helped me kill it by accidentally hurting itself. I still do NOT want to get the Xmas Ribbon because I am a good boy. I've missed the wiki so much. -Jacob

Can I have some help?

I would very much appreciate it if someone added my strategy page to the list so people can read it, please?-Jacob

I have to say no. There is absolutely no use to place your so called strategy to the category due to the simple fact, there is no strategy. That is only wiki inside wiki what is harder to read. Nothing so far on what player should do to reach wave 100 or something like that. --Hyyppa

Yeah, it isn't finish yet and I still haven't managed to get a picture of what it sould look like, also, how do you put text inside a big box like the other users so it looks all neat? Understood.-Jacob

Text inside a big box...? Do you mean templates or the pretty boxes that Josh is so fond of using?

--Death23 T C G TML! Wiki Moderator 18:36, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, like the ones Josh uses.-Jacob

Hi Jacob. Here is the code for a box that has a border of 2px colored brown, a green background, is 100% wide, is set to expand width automatically and has a nice border.

<div style="border: 2px solid brown; background-color: #8DA551; width: 100%; height: auto; border-collapse:collapse;">
The text goes in here. Btw :)!

You can change the border by changing:
border: 2px solid brown;

You can change the width of the border (in this case it is 2px), the color (in this case, brown)

To change the background color just change


After the background-color: that is. The text is what is known as Hexidecimal; the make up of Red Green and Blue. If you want a blue background you could search "Blue hexidecimal" and you will get the code. Just insert it in.

To change the width, obviously change

width: 100%;

This can be done by percentages or via pixels (px). You can also set it to "auto" which will expand it automatically.

To change the height, obviously change

width: auto;

This can be done by percentages or via pixels (px). You can also set it to "auto" which will expand it automatically. 100% is the full width of a wiki page that you are editing.

Lets take a look at the result, ok?

The text goes in here. Btw :)!

To center your text, place:

<center> text goes here </center>

Surround the text with the center tag.

Hope this helps, Josh 19:19, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, this will really help me separate my strategy sections from info sections and will make it all look nice. Happy New Year BTW!-Jacob

What do you think? I accidentally put my entire guide into a box, but it looks quite good, check it out here-Jacob

Nice. Do you want me to change it in any way? Josh 16:59, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Nope, I've fixed everything I wanted to be fixed.-Jacob

Added strats at last!

I think you will be relieved to know that I have put actual strategies to the page. Currently I have 3, and I am planning on adding another.-Jacob

I have a Picture of my GW strat and I would like help with uploading it, please.-Jacob

Link it and I'll upload it.

On another note: Have you ever thought of joining the Forums? Your strats would get a lot more feedback and there are many more users you could get to know, just make an account and start posting!

Cheers --Death23 T C G TML! Wiki Moderator 16:02, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

I'm not sure I should join the forums yet, but I will consider it sometime. How do I 'link it' ?.-Jacob

Upload to a free image hosting website and then place the link here, I will then upload it to the wiki for you. --Death23 T C G TML! Wiki Moderator 16:28, 15 January 2012 (UTC)


GOT THE LINK FOR GW STRAT: Just need the black bits cropped off, thanks.-Jacob

Note I'm using Imageshack. Thanks.--Jacob 14:07, 23 January 2012 (UTC)


It is replacing letters with numbers and such. It is often found from the MOST noob posts/spam. And it is what makes Noob in MnB article lines so much more noob. So dont remove it 3rd time. --Hyyppa

OK, but you got rid of my 100 frenchie sabotage line, that was not getting rid of this 'leetspeak' and it was meant to be funny.--Jacob 15:47, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

I did it because I have OCD and Autism and I don't always understand things. This kinda explainds a few things I've done. Just letting you know. Wink.gif.--Jacob 09:06, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

Recent edits

I'm sorry, but to be blunt, a lot of your recent edits have been pointless. Please stop making pointless edits on talk pages and the actual pages: they are for discussion of the PAGE, not about you or your experiences. The wiki staff has been reverting and correcting a lot of your edits and its becoming a waste of time.

If you notice something wrong with the page or have something to add, by all means, go ahead, but we don't need to have the rifle of your best soldier on the wiki. If you want to discuss experiences or to engage in chats, sign up for the forums. The wiki is for factual, objective information. The forums is for opinionated, subjective chat, or if you want to report a bug, or share a suggestion. Thanks -Brut

Alright,guess I shouldn't go on an editing spree every day as you are annoyed. Sorry. --Jacob 10:52, 28 January 2012 (UTC)


Just survived a Goliath blitz of about 10 with ZERO casualties! I was going for GW (successfully) and I got the survival ribbon and I found wave 100 final assualt still exists. Cool.--Jacob 13:13, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

I have a pic of a goliath blitz and will try to post link here.--Jacob 11:39, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

Just done 400 edits exactly.Very happy.gif.--Jacob 15:58, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

406 to be exact but only 22 can be counted as productive ones. So I wouldnt be too happy. What I am not. --Hyyppa

I don't think that was a very nice thing to say.--Jacob 16:45, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Face it. The truth hurts. Look at your edits today, FOUR of them have been deemed pointless and have been reverted, just today. We have told you again and again, if you want to discuss something about the game, go to the FORUMS. The wiki is for information, not for discussion. The talk page is for discussion of the page itself. --Brutalized 20:37, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

I don't mean for them to be pointless, I just get a little carried away with the attempted productivity sometimes.--Jacob 17:45, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

Here's the link for my Goliath Blitz pic. If someone could upload it that would be great. BTW no text appears when it happens and I didn't lose my tanks.--Jacob 10:49, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

I need some help strat testing

Could someone PLEASE test my strats for me? I'm stuck with Regular deploy and I keep getting smashed before wave 50. Would really appreciate it if someone gave me some pics too.--Jacob 16:26, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

My name

Is it possible for me to rename myself on this account?--Jacob 09:45, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

Admins can rename you, if you ask nicely. --Death23 T C TML! Wiki Moderator 15:52, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

Thanks Death. Was curious that's all.--Jacob 16:12, 8 March 2012 (UTC)


At least I wasn't beaten on the scout or German sniper.....--Jacob 14:08, 20 March 2012 (UTC) Okay, jacob, this is not a race. This is a wiki. --Brutalized 21:24, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Rock on

Oh my god!!! You like the mighty Led Zeppelin too? *Knuckles* And I love the John Bonham thing you did. Glad to know that there are still people out their who like PROPER music. I too am British, and my first LZ experience was when I was 10. I am 11 now.

ROCK ON!!!! --AirborneEngineer23 23:28, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

Yeah man, I also like The Who and Iron Maiden. They're British too.--Jacob 08:56, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, I know. As I type, I am listening to The Who. I like Maiden too; they are my borther's favourite band. I am mainly a Hard Rock/Classic Heavy Metal fan. --AirborneEngineer23 23:28, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

Dead metal to hard rock, I like all of them. Please press signature button when on talk page, thanks.--Jacob 08:49, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, sorry about that. I only joined last week, and up until now I didn't know how to put down my signature. I shall edt my comments on talk pages. Hey, if there's one thing I've noticed, it is that you reply to all of my comments on talk pages. --AirborneEngineer23 23:36, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

Because I have the time and because the staff told me those comments are technically useless to the wiki. Go on the forums for opinionated chat.--Jacob 07:50, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

Ooo,I belive I've been told! --AirborneEngineer23 20:26, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

Ok, I'll go to the forums. --AirborneEngineer23 15:15, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

Wait a minute... I tried to log in but it didn't work. Do I need to make a separate account, or something? --AirborneEngineer23 15:19, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

Help making my own sig

Could someone please help me make my own sig as I read the guide but I find it incomprehensible? .--Jacob 10:24, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

To make your own signature, you go to my preferences, and there should be a box to type it in. Then save your changes, and bingo! --AirborneEngineer23 20:28, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

Strategy Help, please

Hey guys. I would really appreciate some help on AT Units for my strategy (section Tank Fortress) as I have no idea which is best/most reliable to use and tanks are practically irreplaceable and I can't always rely on my signaller for artillery either. Thanks--Jacob 08:31, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

Nice work Jakob. Keep on updating your strategy page. 1.For your AT question I have no good answer as a newbie. The strats I used so far all had M3s for AT support. I add AT mines sometimes when tanks come to close to my bunker. 2."Tank Fortress" seems to be your main strat right now. So why not put it on top of your page? 3. Take a look at the section "Troops used in this strategy (plus optional extras)" Some redundant </TR> </TR> float around there --Kuppuswami 08:26, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

Actually, I have no idea how to fix it, I spent half and hour last night tearing my hair out trying to fix it but it wouldn't work.--Jacob 14:51, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

Hi Jacob,
since you keep your strategy page up to date,I read your guide thoroughly and have some ideas for modifications. Are you interested? Then I'd write a detailed review. Regards --Kuppuswami 14:22, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

Yes, I'm interested and I certainly would like to know, thanks. BTW you spelt my name Jakob.--Jacob 15:21, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

Sorry for misspelling your name. Jakob is the name of a friend of mine, so that's the source of my fault... Fine. Then I'll get to work, you get the results within the next days. Greetings --Kuppuswami 15:56, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

What precisely are you going to do? It's just because I worry if I don't know. I shall await the results.--Jacob 07:50, 30 May 2012 (UTC)

Don't sweat it. My vague idea is to edit your guide page and insert comments, where appropriate. When I'm done, I save first, afterwards hit the undo-button, so your guide is back in its original state. By comparing both versions side by side you are then able to check my comments and adopt the input if you like. --Kuppuswami 14:03, 30 May 2012 (UTC)
You are done with my review? Or are you working on further improvements? In any case, good job Jacob! --Kuppuswami 12:28, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

I'm almost finished, thanks for the help, appreciate it.--Jacob 08:43, 6 June 2012 (UTC)


You've been finally made a 'Trusted' user, giving you the ability to upload pictures. Behave yourself, and enjoy your new abilities! -Branabus, minor

Oh wow, this is unbelievable! Awesome, thanks. Very happy.gif --Jacob 07:46, 24 May 2012 (UTC)

== Inactivity == Hello :0

Just to let you know that I'm having my ISP changed so I may be inactive for a few days. See ya round.--Jacob 07:45, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

I'm back. --Jacob 09:54, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

Nice to see you again :) I really like your user page. There are a lot of similarities between your taste and mine in game and music terms. Keep having fun and URB On! --Lance 20:39, 14 August 2012 (UTC)

Thanks Lance. Can I ask for your opinion on me adding 2 extra trenches to my strategy?--Jacob 13:52, 16 August 2012 (UTC)


Apologies for my long absence, however, I'm now back and services will continue.--Jacob 11:05, 1 August 2013 (UTC)

Is the wiki dead?

Just wondering but all the activity i'm seeing is an endless load of unused new accounts being made and literally nothing to talk about. Are we gonna do anything until the next game comes out because this is kinda sad to see how dead this wiki now is. :( --Jacob 10:20, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

Wiki is basically finished for the moment. If it is not broken, don't fix it. --Hyyppa

That's a bit of a shame... What happened to the fact of the day? That was great! We could revive it! Or we could get people to start posting more strategies! Or maybe a story page of their unfair experiences for people to read and try to recreate desperately with no avail! Come on! We can still do something.--Hyperborrean22 18:01, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

FotD was hidden from the front page due to the person responsible for updating it didn't update it for weeks. Strategies are not available as even the forum isn't seeing those. Stories belong to the forum, not here. Wiki is mainly for information, not amusement. Forum is for that purpose. --Hyyppa

You know the bazooka page is not technically finished?--Hyperborrean22 15:35, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

I did not know it wasn't finished, has anyone else got some information we could add?--Jacob 12:49, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Did I get demoted?

Hey I know I haven't been active for a long time but did I get demoted if so can someone tell me why?--Jacob 12:59, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

Various staff changes took place last fall which included demotion of various inactive Trusted users, NCO's and other mischievous actions regarding the staff. You had been inactive for so long that you were deemed as un-fit to keep the Trusted user rank. In order to regain the rank, it must be earned again. --Hyyppa

Well okay tyhen, I do intend to resume activity to assist with Wiki activities especially when MNB 3 comes out. It's not much of a problem I was just inquiring and thank you for the answer. So, I'll still be back to help when I can.--Jacob 08:06, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
