13 pages in, its time I gave my 0.02 cents Australian, which is sitting at 94 cents to the USD so worth a grand total of a ball of lint.
As a Boom and Zoomer and almost exclusively BnZ, the AF set up for once meets furballer and BnZ requirements. At least to a point but far closer than Circus did. I flew regularly in Circus because they're a good crowd and it was all there was outside of Wargrounds , (New Wings learner servers not withstanding, which was Circus but with noobs who admitted they were noobs). I actually preferred "WG", but rarely flew there as my Squadron and sister Squadron preferred Circus. (damn Camel jockeys)
I never felt Circus with its bevy of icons and spoon-fed information suited anyone but the furballers. Those "Hey here I am 60 miles away" icons certainly are not conducive to Spad operations. Not to say, you cant get kills, but you could only do it by interrupting or introducing yourself to other peoples fights. A common complaint of the furballer,, (snicker) but a necessary evil for the BnZ'er. I never felt the need to apologise for it. One, it was the gameplay enforced by the nature of the server and two, I am a complete *****
AF is a happy compromise. Tho I would prefer no icons whatsoever, I fly where the Squadron goes so AF is it. I dont think it needs to be a Circus clone. Circus has/had its audience, but for all the "good" pilots who frequented it, they could have got the same jollies out of the excellent New Wings servers. (want a good but noob server, call yourself a noob and be done with it. The rest of us will still drink with you).
So my 0.02 ball of lint.
Give AF a go. I noted some of the Wargrounds complement in their late last night. 15 at midnight from god knows what part of the world. Give it time for people to adjust and not throw a fit when its only a week into its new design.
One Spad pilot will be grateful for it.
…while I am annoying everyone else, 777, we have been good, we have been faithful, we have been patient.
Take a break from your white ridden 109 rockshow and spend a week on ROF remedying the coding problems preventing potential server hosts from making adjustments to the servers. They are trying to keep your game alive with active populations.
I paid for BOS, I want it too succeed to, but not at the expense of ROF. return a week of loving back here. Again, a grateful Spad pilot.
