View Full Version : An idea to satisfy a "special" group of customers!

I was watching some people in Hyperlobby whine and complain about some aircraft in Forgotten Battles and all things related to it. It was getting pretty irritating. I was thinking, "Don't they get tired of this? They do it so much..."

Then I had an epiphany!

They whine so much because they ENJOY it! It was all elementary from there.

To satisfy this elite group of whiners and complainers, 1C:Maddox could model in a "complain mode" into Forgotten Battles. When the game is launched with complain mode activated, a few things happen.

1 - The textbox for communication is enlargened to take up at least a quarter of the monitor, maybe even half.

2 - All flight and damage models for all aircraft behave the laws of Chaos, being totally random every time.

3 - Random crazy events happen, such as being teleported into the next dimension, shot into space, assimilated by the Borg (Remember now, Resistance IS Futile), and even teleporting back in time!

This would allow this elite demographic group to be satisfied in ways never seen before, a place where they can whine and whine and whine to all their whining friends, and truly get 100% enjoyment out of Forgotten Battles. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Disclaimer - "Whiners" and "Complainers" are characterized by the fact they insist something is wrong, ignore reasons and facts, and scream from the rooftops that what they believe about a certian aspect of the game is right, regardless of proof and presenting none to back up their claims.

These labels of course do not apply to decent members of the community, who, with maturity and respect, present facts and sources, ask questions, and be courteous to a developer who is kind enough to actually talk to you about your concerns and ideas. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I think this would bring ultimate enjoyment of the Forgotten Battles program to these elite whiners and complainers that have so unfortunately decided to settle in our midsts.

You've probably hit it on the nail...its an excersise in complaining. Most people do it pretty well...they have some sources to back it up or they try and articulate it as best they can without sources. The ones who flame and get really angry are a problem...but in general you are right that people do like to complain.

Its actually part of a social experience to suggest that the La-7 is overmodeled or is just right where its supposed to be. That one plane gives so much for people to complain about http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Without the LA7/LA5 series to pick on, where would our Luftwhiners be? They NEED the LA7!

Amen to that guys. LOL! I guess they just can't grasp an 1800 HP motor in a lightweight, streamlined airplane would give it some go... But hey. I like to think for every few whiners there is one good, respectful LW flyer.

Seems silly to me though that people divide themselves and reserve their time for only certain planes... I have and will fly anything that flies in Forgotten Battles, and am eagerly awaiting all AC in the Ace Expansion pack. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif But hey, this game is all about choice and fun, so to each his own, eh?
