.....and still no 46/Murmansk......I can remember a time when weekly updates were a regular feature of this site.I wouldnt care if they just told us out straight but we've been led to expect a download for months now.And then someone says it will be both out on cd after Christmas......and then no,it WILL be a download beforehand.....
Is it just me?! Am I becoming a grumpy old man...?At least we can totally forget about BOB:SOW cos that sure isnt coming in November as advertised.In fact I wouldnt bet on it arriving Nov 2007 either....
So whats this Ubi obsession with keeping people in a state of permanent suspense.(The 2 weeks Syndrome)

Yes, its you, your becoming a grumpy old man.

Apparently the addons are both with Ubi. They just need to release them.

Another grumpy old man checking in http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

I agree. Bob is about the only reason why I check this site everyday and I'll bet I'm not alone. Oleg needs to through us a bone every now and then (like every Friday), to keep us engaged and hopeful. Out.

i would not expevt it before at least the next 12 months are over !!


about il10/46 , IL10 is at UBI, yes.
46 not sure, actually i doubt it..........
and as i belive UBI will release them together on one DVD (no downloadoption), we still have to wait.........

I check here regularly for ANY type of news, but I find I'm going to the gennadich site a bit more since they give weekly updates on KoTS and at this point I think it will be released before the PF add-ons.

Not grumpy (nor old http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif) just realistic. Though when I have a free hour or so I still fly 4.05m

Well personally I think my greatest annoyance is that Ubi have had the addons for months now...what on earth are they doing to it ?How long does Boontification take anyway!?Myself and 1000s of other fans are bursting to send them 30 Euro online with none of it going to the gameshops/distributors

well, the costs are lower having one release than two - and i not speaking of the costs for a DVD or CD............
so, they most propably wait for the release version of '46.
than put these things in production.
as i said, i dont expect any download option for IL10 or '46 like Pe-2 anymore !

I wonder if anyone is ever going to realize that there is a huge difference between developers and publishers.

Oleg did not say that BoB would be out in November. Ubi did. In fact, I seem to recall Oleg making a comment to the effect of "don't hold your breath" when that was announced.

Furthermore, Oleg really has nothing to do with weekly updates. Notice the domain name of this site. It isn't "maddoxgames.com," it's "ubi.com." When was the last time anybody saw the Ubi "community manager" around? He'd be the one to ***** to. Weekly updates from Ubi might be nice, but at least we seem to be getting monthly ones from RRG.

Finally, Ubi is soley responsible for releasing Manchuria and 1946. Oleg has nothing to do with it. Developers make software. Publishers--surprise--publish it. The developer has pretty much nothing to do with getting the software into the hands of the consumer. If Oleg passed the finished product onto Ubi, it's entirely Ubi's call on when (and how) to release it. If I were a betting man, I'd bet on late October/Early November. Why? Because Ubi, like any publisher, would love to increase its holiday profits.

*****ing on the forum really isn't going to accomplish much more than keeping people like Oleg away. If you want your complaints to be heard, complain to the source of the problem--email or call Ubisoft.
