  1. So shall it be written. So shall it be done.
  2. Harrr !!! lol. They may make the playoffs.... it will be close.
  3. Unfortunately, they are mostly all gone. Grasmaster and I are the only one's left I think. Loonie comes in every now and again. Not sure how long this group will last. Likely head to BK, if nothing changes with 1.36.
  4. I may be out to Vaudreuil soon... keep your head down as I go through. I will be tossing poutine everywhere. Might get on tonight.....been out of town and crazy busy.
  5. To be expected I was out of town and not available for the axis.
  6. I don't know where to start with how crazy this comment is. Lol.
  7. Basically I agree. Unfortunately, at times, some people go a bit beyond constructive criticism in the forums. When it goes beyond warranted questions and criticisms of game play, game management, game path etc.... and into the "zone of disrespect" and "whine-a-tion" well that's a bit different. Of course what is "disrespect" and "whining" is subjective to a degree, and that is is all happening in text, certainly doesn't make it easier for moderators to make decisions. On one side I think when people feel they are not being heard...well...they are prone to being a bit more "insistent" as they get more frustrated and may go post else where to vent. On the other hand CRS knows about a lot of the challenges, ideas etc...and listens, but they know what is possible and not possible better than most and perhaps get a bit tired of dealing with repeated posts about things they have either decided are better for the game or beyond their control to change. Anyway... as you say.... "no personal offences", that's the deal alright, if people can stay within those lines with out "losing it."
  8. Always fun ryman. you should poll for new adventure ideas people want to see you accomplish.
  9. lol. Now this rings true.
  10. I think you are on to something here. Even if it is every third map or so. Build interest, involvement. When the next map is different...some may stay to play that and find it also engaging. CRS could give sufficient warning of the type of starting map....but variety tactically and strategically is the "spice of keeping this game alive."
  11. Let us know what you need.
  12. I just hope they leave the Modello alone. It is a great weapon...lots of fun. Almost as deadly as the Thompson, which is a wicked instrument of close up "death" which in so many ways balances out the "differential"... the MP 40, while better than it was, still is, well... not as good as the old Thompson (in the right hands that is). I actually hardly use the LMG 34 anymore....been trying to improve my rifle skills and semi-auto rifle skills....which is a challenge, as the neurons are not what they used to be. ha ha.
  13. I am surprised people don't want the Modello SMG muted, killed, reduced, squashed, dumbed down and made to speak French. It certainly is the best SMG or LMG or Tank or plane or ship for that matter in the game. HAH! ps... Apologies to French speakers! Of which there are many in my family.
  14. Now don't get all "snarky" lol Still I hadn't noticed that too much, which might mean I am not setting enough FMS, lol.
  15. Hey! Great to see! Good statement with out the whine
  16. No. It's the "whiny" part of the critique (i.e. if you don't see it my way well you are just ignorant and wrong), which seems to come through after someone repeatedly offers the same points over and over, as if CRS or others haven't heard it and generally provides no or little admission that CRS has done something correct (I mean the game is still going, despite huge challenges?). I think this is a good place to insert the "balance" term. Perhaps I am projecting, won't be the first time, lol, but that's what is somewhat irritating to me at least. regards
  17. So if people are invested “emotionally “ perhaps they should invest financially? Otherwise what’s the point? Sure, making suggestions is great. I can make lots of suggestions but that’s all they will be unless there’s grist for the mill aka cash. I don’t doubt crs listens to all ideas. what they can do is another thing. I am basically reacting to what I perceive as a somewhat complaining tone in some of the comments by people Which would be more palatable if people were putting their money where there mouth is. As the old saying goes. Just my perception of it. Must be my old man’s influence. Sh-t or get off the pot, As he was won’t to say too many times. lol
  18. I like challenges. It's why I play a game, certainly this game. I like variety as well. So changing things up offers something new aside from the unique nature of every map played. Different tier changes, and different TOE's, sure, give it a go, see what happens. Constructive criticism is good. Whining is bad, though we are all prone to it. People can make their determinations on when one turns into the other, however, If people don't like the game, fine. They can go somewhere else. Why hang out here? Posting in the forums when a person has no/little skin in the game. ??? CRS doesn't have a million dollar backer. If they did.... it was long ago and is not reality now, so temper your expectations. I ask this honestly. What's the point? (of the 'I told you so mentality' or 'You really need to do this or I will unsubscribe' etc...) Unless you are putting some cash down to play... (and no, it doesn't matter that you gave cash before, or subbed for 10 years before, or I gave up my first born for this game, yada, yada etc...) well....you are really "not in the game" in terms of contributing. (Though yes.....F2P is helpful and players welcome) Anyway, If you aren't supporting the game. You aren't paying for the game. Well? .... What's the point of all the "threats". (i.e. I will sub when I get what I think is best for the game etc...) Put your cash down. It's simple. (yes, and again I can hear the voices, 'I played X years and subbed this and that and blah, blah, blah...etc...). Sorry, it gets tiring, seeing this in the forums. Support it or not; all good. But at least for me, a paying player (and funder with more than a few thousand in through various campaigns, 'call me a 'mark' if you like, lol), I am tired of the wanking and whining. You are part of the solution or part of the problem. PS> Boredom is a self inflicted situation. There is always something to do in this game. Just as in life. That's just how I see it at the moment.
  19. If you are employing the "soon" argument it's really an empty argument. The current CRS has not really offered the "soon" deflection at all. Your statement is inaccurate in that regard. They have made various attempts at stabilizing and growing the numbers. Should they try others? Sure.

  21. Maybe they need to do a Gofundme with the explicit goal of hiring more 64 bit hands on deck? Get some "hired" hands into action. I might even toss some cash in. Since my Mac is complaining.
  22. Finally some "truth" from you. ahahahaha
  23. I hear ya. There won't be 10,000 players subbing perhaps, but hey... even if some small portion of that pony up... could be good.
  24. GEEZ! That was so good...loved that time of the game. Hoping for full revival. The games situation sometimes reminds me of person who has had a serious heart attack.....i.e the game in serious trouble. While the analogy, is of course, not exact, there are parallels. The game had a major one...perhaps a few. It survived. It is building up it's strength, trying to "exercise", get "stronger", learn to "eat right" etc..... It took a while for the factors to build up that precipitated the "attack", it will take time for it to recover and gain health again. Some think there's been enough time for recovery, while others see that it still needs time. How fast, what really to expect from a "near death" experience and recovery is perhaps at the heart of the matter (no pun intended). Having seen people have to recover from serious health issues, sometimes it's faster than you would think possible, others you know it's gone be a while. Understanding and offering help and constructive advice is one thing, complaining to the person in recovery that they aren't going as fast as you would like, in ways that you would like is another (i.e hurry and get better dad, right now!!! I want you to ride me around on your bicycle). Yes I know it's only an analogy and we are paying customers, or most of us, but we are also a community of players, with some shared interests in gaming experiences like WWII offers. That bond is what holds me involved. Even for those who "complain" you can sense their hope and involvement with the community and the game. I guess we will see.... Game and community is still unique enough to keep me in it.
