Well because of the stagnant changes to the game and game play another long time pilot has packed it up and moved on in life. What a shame to see that no one with Bill's ear can get him to understand that eye candy WILL NOT save this Sim.

I foresee a number more that will be packing it up and soon there will be only those 10-12 capture the field anyway and how idiotically they can get it done to be the only ones left as they reset the game over and over patting themselves on the back for a "cough" job well done. :roll:

I'm also hanging on, but it's by a single thin thread. I've put much time and effort collecting (still am) data and putting it in a Warbirds GD database for the people involved in the FM building process that will never be taken down by me. For over 10 years I've been doing my best to improve and advance the game, but it's still stuck in the capture the field game play with no consequences of jabocide or bombacide to close a field. On top of that these "players" will purposely dive into ack to prevent their name coming up as killed by a pilot. I find it sad that people are proud of such embarrassing game play.

There's a number of thing's that can be done to help the game to be better besides Eye Candy and FM rebuilds (although the Fm's needed corrections made). Here's some ideas.

1. When a base gets closed make it goes neutral (white as days gone past) and can be captured by any side.
2. Cut radar down to 20 miles so bombers at 25k can't be WEP climbed in 3 mins. to it's alt by fighters. WEP climbing at under 170 MPH should over-heat the motor in a minute.
3. Eliminate bombers except to certain areas of the Map. Large buffs to the very edges and medium bombers to 20 miles from the edge.
4. Make all bomber/troops plane AI's drop when the human airframe drops. It's ridiculous that you can send the AI out d3000-4000 in front of you and have them attack while the human sits out
away from the field or send in the troop plane AI d30,000 in front of you and have it drop troops.
5. Make it that one field can be closed at a time. It stops the rambos dying over and over from closing 4-5 bases before they start capturing them. With the low number of players left this gets
done quite often or make a reset of the map if more than 5 bases are closed at any given time.

I have more ideas, but it appears the powers that be don't care.

Grumpy, man, hope you won't actually leave. I do hear you about the game play but when numbers being not so one sided there still are fun, fair battles. Happen like once in a couple of weeks though...

honestly I don't think we can expect any major updates to graphics or gameplay.....It just is what it is until it dies on the vine...

It's really starting to feel that way. Any! communication would help keep the faith. Do not appreciate being treated like a mushroom.

15-20 players max on a weekend when people all over the world play? I think it's already dead.

Hate to see you leave but I'm sure more of us will shortly be behind you. I have been on here flying WB's since the 90s and I, like most of you, never want to give up on this game but it has become very discouraging. Whoever is in charge seems to be ignoring everyone and everything and it just collecting everyone's monthly fees and not giving back to the players. I read all these discussion posts and very rarely do they post, more worried about setting up grand kids xbox controller to play the game. Well I hope this game will still exist when the lad is older. I love this game but I haven't even found myself on there in over a month because I know when I log on it will be 10 vs 2 and I'll be chasing NOE Raiders all over the map, bombers that ditch, and no new updates. The only thing that has me going is the old diehard players which I consider you guys my friends. I hope this post gets someones attention. All we need is a little communication, a little hint, a little light please?!? -Irnwlf
