  1. OUCH!!! Funny AF, but still...ouch. Mine would come back, "Account closed with prejudice. Do not allow to reapply." -Irish
  2. I wish we had known how we were being gouged, back in 2003-2004, when my wife and I were paying $14.99(US)/month each for two subscriptions to the game Horizons: Empire of Istaria. Frankly, the game was laggy and had some serious bugs which needed to be fixed. We played it anyway. I wish I would have known how I was being taken advantage of, in 2004 and for the next eight years, when I was paying $14.99(US)/month for a subscription to City of Heroes. /sarcasm off $14.99 in 2004 would be over $20.00 today. No matter what people may THINK of it, players of this game are NOT being overcharged at a monthly cost of $14.99 or even $17.99. However, people have been so spoiled by free to play games and microtransactions, they don't realize people have been quite happy to pay this much or more, ever since the beginning of MMOs. In 1999, it cost $9.89(US)/month to play Everquest, the first true MMO. Adjusted for inflation, that is just over $15 today, right in line with the yearly-pay rate of $14.99 for WWIIOL. Frankly, I'm ashamed of my fellow gamers for not recognizing the value of the amount of entertainment a game provides. If you only play one hour per day/15 hours per month, that's 50¢ per hour. And yes, I will bring up movies and such. Try to go to a two hour movie for a dollar, anywhere. You can't even rent one for that price from RedBox. That kind of gamer is basically saying people running games should do so for free, JUST so they (the entitled little butterflies) can play. My family is getting by on disability income, so we don't exactly have what you would call disposable income. Still, I keep two accounts active even though I only rarely have time to get ingame and can't get either of my sons interested to get ingame with me (yet). This game is unique in the world. I guess, in a perfect world, some rich investor would come in and throw money at the Rats to build it up then to release v2 with all the bells, whistles, and eye candy. Since this world isn't perfect, it's kind of up to us. If we want to play this game, we each have to do whatever we can to keep it alive. Just my 2¢. -Irish
  3. I hope everyone is having better luck with the new system than I am. Both my accounts have been billed twice this month, once before and once after the new system started. Either whoever entered it either didn't check the box that tells the system my payment was up to date, or my due date wasn't entered correctly. It's being worked on now. Anyone who has a problem, notify support using the link below. http://playnet.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new They will get it straightened out for you. -Irish
  4. Wednesday is the 28th, not the 27th. -Irish
  5. Can you start an Allied unit concurrently, or get another of the Rats to do so? It would be nice to have dedicated units forming on both sides at the same time. -Irish
  6. That's okay. I'll just have to find some Willy Tee images to use for wallpaper instead. Anyone have any ideas? -Irish
  7. Alt account... Stats page shows him running missions as both a Brit and French NCO. -Irish
  8. I read about Imded's passing a while back and just logged off the site and left. I've only been back once since then until now. This struck me a lot harder than some of the other folks we've lost in the last couple years because I've been ingame with Imded and have exchanged quite a few PMs with him even when I couldn't be ingame. One time, when he read that I wasn't able to get ingame for a while, presuming it to be due to financial difficulty on my part (it wasn't), he offered to pay for a subscription for me, so I could stay in the fight. This from a guy I barely (at the time) knew ingame and didn't know at all in RL. I am angry at the world for taking him. I'm angry that his life had to be cut short while there are millions of real scumbags out there happily living long, healthy lives. I'm angry at whatever combination of effed-up circumstances created such a disease as cancer, which serves NO purpose in this world. My friend, you will be remembered, by me (and by lots of others on here, by the looks of things), as a comrade and a friend...as one of the good ones, of which there are all too few in each of our lives. As they say in Zulu, "hambe kahle" (go well), and in Irish " codladh sámh" (sleep well). We'll all see you again someday. Until then... -Irish
  9. No sh*t! I know I couldn't have gone through what you did. You have to win some type of WWIIOL real-life b@d@ssery award. -Irish
  10. I tried it but it made it impossible to see my open tabs. For some reason the theme overwrote the actual tabs themselves, obscuring the writing on them. I really wish I could have kept it. -Irish
  11. ImDed, kick its arse! I just saw a video from a cancer researcher speaking about stage four cancer. She said, "It used to be a death sentence. Now, it's just a diagnosis." Treatments are getting better every day. You have our permission to make cancer your beyotch and roll over it like a tank over a row of bushes being used as an infantry ant trail. -Irish
  12. How long is the WBS going to be in effect, so we can get the word out? -Irish
  13. Sorry...meant to type He 111 and typed Me 110 in error. Fixed. Wiki still shows 2000 kg vs 944 kg bomb loads. -Irish
  14. ROTFLMAO!!! In anything much after tier 0, Axis tanks blow the crap out of most Allied tanks at distances where the Allied tanks might as well be spitting at their enemies. The Axis has the FlaK. 36 (the 88). Just what Allied ATG is better than that? The Axis' He 111 is slower than the Allied bombers but carries more than twice the bomb load, which is the entire point of a bomber. The Axis has the Stuka, the best dive bomber in the game. Shall I continue? -Irish
