Here`s the story behind all this...

Back in the day, someone we know very well the king of virtual spam and comedy - mr CRASH, approached me about posting a little prank in PF forum that involved LW carrier based plane. I said fine, you have my blessing. Time went by... i was thinking about something funny for the community on April first. I couldn`t come up with something...but CRASH showed up again, this time with photoshops of Me-155 that were nicely done by Bobsqueek. Basically he asked me if it`s ok to post it. On which i replied that ammount of fish that is caught depending on who`s posting it hehe. So i approached the man himself. Oleg has a great sense of humor i`ll tell you. He was deffinitely into this. First he said that he`s a bit shaky about Me-155 and was asking to replace it with Me-109T which actually flew in combat and over 70 were built. On that i replied that Me-155 was prototype and never left the stage of blueprints. That way we can make some people happy, some upset and some pissed off because another prototype is being built. Then Oleg asked me to change couple of things on the fly, thanks to Leadspitter, he made couple of corrections and 10 min later Oleg made his post http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I am sure CRASH will add to my story... it`s been fun hehe.

Here's the story. Bobsqueek (if you don't know him, he hangs out with the CWoS gang) approached me after a somewhat succesful amatuer trolling expedition involving a photoshopped MiG-15 into FB. He knew I was a professional at the trolling game, and wanted to know if I had any projects he could help on. Well... It just so happened that ever since PF was was released, I was begging (to deaf ears) for a bf-109 with a tailhook so I could show those bloody americans how an air war over the pacific SHOULD be fought. Obviously I wasn't going to get a G model, which I wanted. The T was a piece of poo as far as I was concerned. Anyway, I briefed Bobsqueek in on my vision. I did the research and gave Bobsqueek a run down on what I wanted. Since early Feb Bob and I have been working on this. But school and work have slowed us down. Anyway, Bobsqueek managed to wrap it all up in time for April 1st. And with Ivan's help, we got Oleg involved! The funniest part is when Ivan told Oleg, Oleg wanted a 109T because it actually flew! Typical Oleg! Always wanting historical accuracy. I had to have Ivan make sure Oleg understood the fact that since the Me-155 never flew, that that WAS the joke! He's a great sport for doing this!

All worth while. I would say this is my most successful trolling trip ever! Sure I wasn't alone, but it feels good to be the Captain! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif With this, the pinicle of my career, I here-by announce my retirement from trolling. It's been a fun ride, but I'm gonna quit at the top.

Oleg, thanks for playing along! Oh, and here is one we didn't finish in time to get to you! lol

I did think there was something wrong with the Graf Zeppelin- the funnel cap was missing for one. Almost sent Oleg an E-mail about this....... But great joke, chaps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But now that work on the 155 has started, can we please have it in the next add-on???? With the Graf Zep of course.

*sigh* I wish that was true. Worst part about this joke is that is was actually me crying out for what I really wanted. A 109G with a tail hook. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Oh, I think we've all been had again. I just read at another forum one of the beta testers claims " The Me-155 is plagued with the same freezing elevators afflicting the other models over the Murmansk map". Something about the new clouds getting caught on the tail hook, it was all in French so i skimmed.

Don't you believe it. Japanese team regularly erupt into floods of tears when they loose. Its a macho thing. There is something about sport and unusual displays of strong emotion which send the Japanese a little crazy.
