I've had it with these incorrect flight models...these screwed up patches..and all the whining that goes on in the game.

I'm only going to play FB for 800 or 900 more hours and then that's it !!! Really..I'm serious this time!!!

Me too!
I'm seriously thinking about only flying for about 2 or 3 hours tonight before I go to bed and then I'm not going to fly the game again until at least tomorrow night.

After my 800 or 900 hours I may have to call Dr. Kavorkian and see if I can get this game INTRAVENOUSLY.

Out of respect and sympathy, I may have to curb my Wednesday session to 5 hours...maybe. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

On a slightly more serious note...

I've been playing video games since the early eighties.
My attention span has never been particularly.....what was I saying - oh never mind.
Anyway I usually play a game for about 3-4 weeks maybe 2 months at the most, before I get bored and move on to the next one.
That is until I 'found' IL-2 (and obviously FB).
Thats it now.
I hardly play anything else. I 'fly' almost every day.
I've even started reading about WWII (currently reading "Aces of the Luftwaffe" by Mike Spick) whereas I had no interest in learning about our history prior to 'finding' IL-2.
I frequently dream about 'flying'.

Not only have my gaming habits been altered for good but IL-2 has changed my life!

I even said to my wife the other night "Hey, they've altered the roll-rate of the P-47!"

She just looked at me in that way that says "are you finished yet?"

I can not belive how addicted I have come to this game. I also am totally blown away by the amount of information that I have picked up ( notice I did not say absorbed ) from people posting here. There are some really fart smellers that have a wealth of knowlege that I am greatful to that they share with us Noobs to the other half of the earth ( the half above water,... being that I was in the Sub surface and didn't get to see many airplanes below sea level ).

Anyway..to those that share their information and insights to this fascinating game..THANK-YOU!

I completely agree the game is just so lame....but I will continue to stay up and fly until midnight or more and live on 3 hours sleep endlessly until I loose my mind.


Happy hunting and check six!

Me too - i'm going to quit playing it the 6 hour a day that i currently play - I am putting it on the black list - i'm cutting back to 5 hours and 59 minutes - the 40 bucks i paid for the game I thought - was going to provide me with unlimited hours of fun - i guess that 40 bucks was a waste!

lets do the math

I play at least 5 days a week on overage of 5 hour per day = 25 hour per week - I bought the game the day it came out - can't remember the date - but for kicks - lets say May - about 19 weeks of play - total of 475 hours - subract at least 75 hours for other - leaving me with around 400 hours of game time -

so 40.00 / 400 hours = 0.10 an hour

so far - i'm sure i'll log another 4 or 5 hours tonight

I just don't think i am getting my moneys worth out of this?????

I've had enough of all the patches and whining too. I promise never to fly IL2FB again. I'm going back to Aces Over Europe, it should really scream on my P4 2.6Ghz/ATI9800 /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I'm so fed up with the entire game that I forced TX squadron to start a dedicated server, crank out custom skins, run a dedicated team speak channel, pay hundreds of dollars a month for an OC3 connection, made each of them spend 10 or 12 hours a day flying to be sure they understood how horrible the game was and finally painted my chevy the same color as my D9 skin.


I wallow in self pity and rage against this pathetic game with every ounce of my being. Being the CO, I have to drag everyone down with me. It's my job.

I had a physical last month and the doctor asked "Any compulsions?" I came clean, but then he kind of rolled his eyes and explained how his best friend is a RL pilot and is the same way. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

The doctor said at the end of the physical (only half in jest) "let me know if you want to talk to someone about that other thing."

My gf thinks I should take him up on it. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Hmmm, somehow the idea of taking this game intravenously sounds appealing.
