I suck at organizing.  But... what I think would be cool is an in-game forum war.  You know, training room where we pit the most abusive forum posters against one another.  Not one-on-one, but team on team.  I dunno how we would split them up.  I am thinking something along the lines of the jaded vets vs. the jaded newbs.  We cannot do the Prenz lovers vs. haters because 12 on 2 is a little lopsided.  

 

Anyone with good organizational skills up for the challenge?  If no, I will try to come up with something, but if I do, it will probably fall apart.  

 

[Edit] as an alternative, maybe we could all get on WG's discord and count-in at, say tier 5 on a certain weekend at a certain time.  That would add to the randomness and maybe some friendships would be forged from the general discontent that forum posts seem to bring.

It's funny because he's so unlikable...

 

But yeah, it's going to take drastic actions by this company to rectify the current catastrophic state of the game before I'll be loading WoWP again.

 

I don't reward bad behaviour...

Your comment has been noted and totally disregarded.  Please add constructive ideas rather than using this to vent.  I like to poke fun at people, there is no ill intent meant by my post.  I have found that the people you hate most in game eventually become friends in the end.  Talking [and fighting together] rather than posting is a great way to find common ground.

Cool~

 

Altho, one wonders why you'd even bother to mention specific individuals at all then... if you're so above it all.

 

Like I said... WoWP is going to need to fix things before you can expect any sort of organized activity... most of the people I know have stopped playing.

^ 2 points for trying, and thank you...but with this 2.05 dumpster fire , Im not playing this game several of my friends moved on as well , and none are paying WG period.

 

WG gambled like the ridiculous "calibrating" thing.... and unless they publish some numbers Im certain we can safely assume, its nose diving fast, I would hope some one with some brains, grabs the yoke, and pulls this game out the 

dive...... but I doubt that with what's going on any here anyone is smart enough...just let it lawn dart. 

One idea, would be to bring some of the smart guys over from WOT or Ships...and let them actually fix this.

I like the idea. Unfortunately its also kinda like the 2.0 Newbies vs. Vets game where I was the only newbie present: one side doesn't feel it's worth it.

 

I'm up for a group fight nonetheless.

 

Also +1 for effort. Maybe eek can get WG to do another livestream giveaway - the last one was hilarious

He ll probably think that it s a one sided game and that we need other 12 to make it slightly fair.

 

Anyway I like the idea.  Will participate.

Oh Bobby Tables I do like a creative thinker. Have you ever noticed that the "out of the box" creative thinkers never really have the need to attack each other, because they are not slaves to their own ego. 

 

This is how your idea might play out, and it seems like I'm out numbered by a lot (in these forums) and that is my everyday reality. But carefully watch near the end when it seems like I am doomed...

 

 

You see I have a great clan at my back, and they have my back because they never quit, they never give up and they never run away from a fight. So I'm not worried because I'm arrogant, I'm not worried because I'm friends with some of the greatest pilots this game has ever seen. So you want to challenge me, be careful I don't show up with my own army!

Not many "animals" XD I don't look forward to being outnumbered either.

Oh you must mean in the last 9 months since 2.0 went live because the greatest pilots this game has ever seen are all gone. (Well maybe a couple like Arrow are still here but I think even he has one foot out the door)  I could make a top 100 list if you like & sadly nobody from your clan will make the list.

A little bird whispered in my ear and it said that there are certain players who have established reputations, especially in the forums and therefore they have to uphold a certain level of good behavior. Then the little bird also told me that those same players could have alternate identities that don't require such standards and so they can say whatever they want and attack whoever they want. 

 

Would you like to confess who you really are, or would you like to wait to be exposed? Your choice...

Expose away, it's not like you haven't been exposing yourself repeatedly all over this forum.

Oh by the way say hi to Nancy for me, we miss her.

Well, actually...Thanks to you, WoWP forums is unofficially in our "Other Games" category... sooo, yeah... give yourself pat on the back. (like you needed an excuse, or even a legitimate reason)  :great:

BACK ON TOPIC PEOPLE.

 

Does anyone have the organizational skillz to set something up?  If no, then get the fricky frick off my thread (oh, Snoticus, where are you when I need you?).  

 

Seriously, if your input is "I quit playing so I'm just going to be a d-bag here on the forum" then be a d-bag somewhere else please.  

 

Oh yeah, where is MARS?  He has been very quiet lately...  He was always good at setting stuff up.

Many people, including me, literally can't play because the game's performance has reduced by 85% from the last patch...I'd suggest waiting a month or so. (There were also numerous bugs last time a TT event was attempted.)

In the Forum Game™ I'm getting a consistent 60fps

with just the slightest rubberbanding when the post start coming in at over 6/hr


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.
