Yes - We are the center (Centre) of the Earth. The rest of the world revolves around our axis. Wait until we go back and take a isolationist posture - Europe, I mean "Old Europe" will be nothing more than a road side tourist attraction on the way to China.

BTW - Olg hates the U.S. Arklight - get used to it.

I have noticed that there are a lack of posts about carrier landings. Maybe Oleg knew the Europeans wouldn't know how to land on carriers and it would take them a few extra days to learn this trick. I feel the US is getting the last laugh on this one, but then again the Japanese did use Kamikazes.

I really don't understand what you're whining about, the US gets the new games before Europe almost every time. And when for once it's the other way round, the whine-choir starts... You're just a bunch of spoiled brats.

I do think Oleg has a (natural) pro-Russian anti-American/Western European bias (perhaps present his dismissal of American and RAF aircraft test results), but that has little or nothing to do with who gets PF when. That particular decision rests with the marketing morons at UBI, who in their infinite wisdom decided to release a European sim in America first, and an American sim in Europe first . . .

10-21-2004, 04:26 PM
Ubi certainly does the sequenced release, often North America first but this time Europe first, to get the buzz going...this they hope will drive many of the "second-phase-release" folks to order the product diectly from UBIsoft, thereby increasing UBI's cut of the profit on those sales by eliminating the middlemen retailers.
In that regard, releasing the product in the markets where folks are likely to be the LEAST "Anxious" for the product fits the strategy. Those who REALLY, Really WANT the product, drooling for it, will hear/read the feedback from the other Continent(s) who get the product first, and will be even MORE likely to go directly to a mail-order with Ubisoft.

It would be nice to buy on-line and download the game/sim directly. Thats going to be the distribution wave of the future.

They're releasing the patch at the same time the US gets PF so what do you have to say to that?

I thank our beta tester guinea pigs over in Europe.

Refering to all Americans as a bunch of "spoiled brats" is certainly much different than refering to Europe as a "stop on the way to China." It would appear that you are doing exactly the same thing that you chastised somebody else for...

I have to say that compared to what was going on when AEP was released, the whining now from the US is hardly noticable. Some Europeans really lost their sense of reality then...

The US and Japanese Navies watched the BRITISH Royal Navy use Carriers for offensive combat first in the Med against the Italians then against the Bismarck. Japan took note and became the second power to use what they had learned against Pearl.

Landing the Corsair on a carrier was mastered also by the British Royal Navy.
