It's rather curious to see the 'Gold' pack offerd by UBI but I don't see how it benifits me. I already have IL-2, IL-2;FB and have pre-ordered the Aces expansion pack. Getting the gold would be superfluous. Am I missing something here?

Well, if you had any friends, the Gold Pack might make a nice gift.

I think you will find the Gold pack is Aimed at new users and includes both the Aces and the Original IL2 FB.... This is a marketing ploy to re-release the game as a New Package and get more customers, good on em, a fresh batch of cannon fodder on the way http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Oh gosh no. When Ubi realizes the marketing potential, and the untapped 'female gaming market', they'll release:

IL2 Hot Date
IL2 Pink Edition
IL2 vs Survivor
IL2 Diamond Anniversery Edition

I had FB, but sold it to circumvent my addiction during last year of grad school, so for me, i ordered it, cheaper that way in the end..hell, saw people on ebay buy a used copy for $17, when you can get Fb for $15 new..that doesn't make sense to me.

I'll probably buy the gold edition just to support Oleg & Co.

Not the mention the fact that the Gold copy of FB will be patched. Having a hard copy of the updates is handy, especially for those with a 56k connection.

Heres why i got the Gold pack.

A few weeks ago i ordered the Ace Addon with next day air. Total was $51.00 and some odd cents. Anyways, when i saw the gold pack available i went ahead and added everything up as if i was going to order the gold pack. Total came down to, well what do ya know! $51.00 and some odd cents with out the next day air but with the 2nd day delivery. So now if you think about it. Its like they're giving me FB for free.

So i went ahead and got rid of my ACE addon pre-order and pre-ordered the Gold version. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

If you don't have FB then getting FB Gold is a perfect way to start off. Not to mention that it means that FB will be sold on the front of the store shelves again.
