...and regardless of why they do, why do we frequent it? Oleg has left the building, people.

I've wondered the same thing. The Pacific Fighters forum was closed and I really expected that this one would be closed as well. I guess I come here once in a while simply because it is still here.

I come here out of habit, and I quite like the place actually.
Why they still keep it open? Who knows. This sim is still pretty big, and had been fairly successful for a long time, and has probably had a longer life span than other titles they've had. It just keeps on going.

Well, there is still another patch to be released and this is the most successful forum in UBI history. Considering there are still hundreds posting here regularly, why not keep it?

No one thinks it's the same place it was even a year ago, but nonetheless...

This forum has one advantage because the 1C <span class="ev_code_yellow">Yellow Wallpaper</span> makes combat flight The Simmers crawl on the floor scratching walls.

It`s a community thing. Stay here long enough and Oleg will return!

I will probably go over to that new forum eventually, but like Lexx says I really do hate that horrible yellow. these guys have no idea how to make something look aesthetically pleasing. I mean, when you have to view a forum discussion for 15 minutes it really does make the eyes bleed!

The new forum is no more interesting than this one. I'm quite amazed by the consistency in dullness.

Only go over to it if you like Oleg to answer your requests with answers like:

"we have considered the non-possibility of this and yes, we are unlikely to not introduce this, unless we decide not to implement as originally unintended."

etc.

There I was eating lunch at work, sipping my ice tea and I read this. I'll invoice you for the replacement keyboard and personal humiliation of having tea coming outta my nose.

If you are referring to the one by Skychimp, I think they just moved it to the Off Topic forum.

Bravo, so they did! I clicked the link and it was dead, based on the history, assumed it had been deleted. Thanks

this forum is kept especially for newbies and other blueboy jerks to "require ..this" and "require...that"
they have so much time to waste...they should re-read these forums since 2002 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

UbiSoft is still the distributor for the Il2 series. The game is still on the shelves at a lot of retail stores.

Ubisoft is providing the site for support from other users. It still provides a very viable service to all users. I doubt they will do away with this site until the IL2 Series is DEAD.

If ubi closed this forum there'd be many complaints about the lack of customer support.

Go figure.

You can't make simmers happy so it's best to keep them busy.

That seems rather aggressive considering you see yourself as a Buddhist. Most Buddhist I've met are peaceful and tolerant.

I'm still here because I like many of the members and I can still learn something from time to time. I'm also still interested in the game.

You have almost 1200 posts yet you've been here since 2002. A large number of your posts were made recently. I've been here just as long but I don't remember you before late last year.

So, if your posts are any indication, I'd say this forum is far from dead.

EDIT: I see now. The original poster was referring to this forum.

It's still active and all though I have no prove, I'm sure the Oleg and the team are still lurking in the shadows. Besides the bit of whining, there's still useful info coming in that might be relative to BoB.

This thread alone is less than 2 months old and has had more than 2250 views. That indicates a lot of traffic.

I always thought this was a forum to discuss the IL2-Series with other fans, share knowledge and support for newcomers and those who come here with questions and problems.

I never imagined this was a forum about Oleg Maddox, though http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif


If anything, you could rename this part of the forum, but that wouldn't make much sense either. As the sticky says, this forums purpose is to make suggestions, discuss IL2, report bugs and tracks, accuracy and similar things and it's still actively used for that.

Besides that it seems that UBI put a hold on any information released on SoW:BoB, so if they'll lift the ban, here's the first place to look for official informations. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
