I posted this afternoon wondering about the existence of a Spitfire in the beta 1.2. Does it exist or doesn't it? How is it?

Why would the mods remove this post?

Let's hope that someone want to keep a secret, but I've heard it's not in the beta

Problem is IBTL or IBTD (in before the delete)

Ubi mods have been told to remove beta threads since we aren't supposed to have it. And no its not in there.
Thats my guess anyway!

The Moderators are currently deleting and locking anything and everything they feel is "beta related".

I had a similar experience. On Sunday afternoon I posted a topic to discuss what were the butterfly combat flaps on the Ki-84, their historical origins and their effectiveness in real life.

It got a half dozen replies, but when I checked to see it on Monday it was gone (along with at least 6 other threads).

Now, I can see why the mods are deleting topics asking things like "where do I get 1.2 beta from" and ones where the poster is breaking the non-disclosure agreement, but in the case of the topic I posted I thought it was unjustified to delete the whole thing. If replies had contained 1.2 beta info, surely these could have been removed instead of deleting the whole thing.

I can see that the mods are having to deal with large quanities of crap at the moment with the leaked beta and patch release approaching, but (in my above case at least) I was left confused by their actions.

"As weaponry, both were good, but in far different ways from each other. In a nutshell, I describe it this way: if the FW 190 was a sabre, the 109 was a florett, or foil, like that used in the precision art of fencing." - Gunther Rall

Seems to me that since the beta was leaked, UBI has a huge opportunity here to get feedback from a whole score of beta testers that they didn't have before.

Instead of Locking or Deleting the threads, it seems smarter to READ them and see what these "sooners" have to say about it.

Another example of how Big Daddy corporation can't see past its own anger that its little children got a hold of something before it said they could. They are missing a pretty good chance here due to stupid short sightedness.

This is funny.

A NDA is broken and everyone is complaining that moderators on an official company sponsored forum are attempting to censor leaked data.

The fact is that the beta is a leak. I has provided us some good news for just about everyone, but you all do have to realize that they have internal beta tests for reasons and that when disclosure agreements are broken there is some degree of censorship they have to do.

Another point to keep in mind is that none of the Spitfires are 100% finished yet, thus it would be impossible to have one in the patch. Unless there is one done by 1C that we don't know about.

Ubi & 1C:Maddox have valid reasons for running the beta test program as a closed test. For the same reasons, discussion of leaked versions of the beta patch are discouraged on Ubi's forums. This thread is locked.
