This idea just came to me.Has anyone thought of setting up a system where a player can join a server where they pay 5 bucks for an account.Once they die they need to pay another 5 bucks.

Have it so that the enemy airfields are a good 15 minutes apart flight time and with excessive airfield flak to prevent vulching.Now when you take off you can fly to a designated dogfight area or even give your coordinates to another player for a duel.

When you are against an enemy you can click a button and their stats will pop up.

Boohaa...Axis pilot with 27 takeoffs and 17 kills credited.Then list medals and stuff.

Would be very kool to build up your virtual pilot to an Ace level and have some guy rip it away from you in a 30 second furyhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Have all the money collected go to Cancer research or somethinghttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Nice thought, I would join if I had the money. I think that pretty much goes for all of us: We'd do it IF WE HAD THE MONEY!

Well then it would be for the Aces out there then.One would be a fool to join if they cant even beat an ace AI.

Playing for higher Stakes would be very rewarding.heck you could even have it so that the highest ranking Ace on friday night 3Am wins the pot of cash accrued during weekhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Wow.....imagine the addiction of FB coupled with the addiction of gambling and.....hey maybe this isnt such a good idea!!

Yep been done. They do it with the racing games too. I know of guys that belong to clubs thye pay like $100.00 up front to the ringleader of it all. then they race every week and chace fpr points just like nascar and at the end of so many weaks they add it all up and pay out the cash. NOT FOR ME! Geeze the Ole lady would kick my arse!

But on a different note your idea would be great for like a LAN party. Except I'd only charge a $1.00-$5.00 a battle. Then use the total to pay for the facilities we rented ot order Pizza with it or something. it would most defently get rid of the full blown vulching and the crashes after you ran out of ammo, and bailing out over enemy territory, unless it was the only way to survive and hoping game would let you excape capture. When you did excape capture it would sure put a bigger grin on your face.

Yes Warbirds and aces high made youpay but this is totally different.hey 5 bucks=one life.You are gonna be very immeresed after 25 dollars is spenthttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gifI just feel that if there was a way to make you feel super attached to your virtual self than youd become more immersed thats allhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Imagine its 10PM friday and you and three other guys have over 20 kills on your current pilot.Do you stay and try for more kills and risk being killed yourself or do you take a seat and wait it out???

you can do that whole thing without money. register a pilot online and have it log your CD key or IP address so you cant make another pilot until your current one has been killed. build up stats then loose them all in a half second

duh.

If you have money to spare after every dead pilot of yours I can give you a an account to put the 5$ in. Also works with 10 and 20bucks for even greater immersion. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/crazy.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Pay to play online? Thats a crazy idea...... Thats why I dont fly FA,Warbirds or AH...... No way will pay to play online while HL is here for free....and if I had to pay to play I would be mostly an offline pilot. I pay to play when I upgrade.....

haha cool server, where u can pay to get killed by an ACE:P instead of noob... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/crazy.gif


but idea about stats u can see is a great ide, u can have 2 og more servers where u can have your stats saved, get medals etc, and if u get killed your stats get reseted and to thous who want to play there must pay , lets see ehh... 5$/ month , and after some time the 1st 3 aces get halv of money and the rest is going to ones who have servers running.... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

how about punch yourself in the face everytime your virtual life get's killed. that would beat the immersion of paying somebody $5.
