View Full Version : What is the point to have Pacific Fighters corner ?

All i see are double posts, i think it's time to consolidate the forums togethers ( will save place ),If not are we going to have a Eastfront side as well Pe2 addon ? No sens..
The time is come for a change. it became ridiculous to separate the community.

Some people don't have the merged install

Like it or lump it, Ubi sells the two sims as seperate titles, and they have seperate Forums for each game title. I think that's the long and the short of it

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif Ubi has a Forum for every game title. Sorry but that's the way it works apparently-

FB is it's own title- it gets a forum

PF is it's own title- it gets a forum

There's no community split.
"Split the Community" is a mantra that never goes out of style but it's never happened and it's cliche. What the PF forum needs (actually all the Maddox Forums) is the same navigation options GD does, but that's about it

Well UBI france doesn't have this as well germany...?
In a marketing point of you it should be better to join the 2 or 3 or 4 soon since Pe2 il10 or what ever will be coming.
Well by mixing the 2 specific pacific fighters guys will be more include with the FB guys and maybe they will buy the cd's or dvd what ever the best.
So only US is separate.. i just see so many double posts that it's turning to ridicule.

Or general discussion should have a change name since it's a FB+AEP as well.
Is it due maybe to some lazy admins that don't want to make the effort to change it as well as the German link..?

Are we going to have a special forum for Pe2?
Please stop the nonsens and excuses to some lazy admin somewhere.
yeap That arch! .... http://www.gozr.net/iocl/images/smiles/G_Approval.jpg

I don't know, but I do know that here, every game that Ubi sells has it's own forum

I don't make these rules, but apparently that is the rule

Personally I see no reason to merge the forums at all, so what if there are double posts, but that's irrelevant because the rule here seems to be:

One game, One forum

I don't know what else to tell you

04-17-2006, 04:59 PM
Like you said rule is the rule.
-Pacific fighters
- Forgotten battles
-AEP ( maybe )
-1946 ram jet crafts ( http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif )

Rules are the rules We must comply then.. make forums now then for all or none.

When i was kid and i tried to eat a candy in the classroom it was one rule about that, if i wanted to eat a candy in classe a had to give a candy to everyone or i had to wait when school would finish to eat my candy.

Chuck since we grew up and this is just a cover up for laziness.

Anyway if i had a candy i'll share it with you.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

UbiSoft provides the bandwidth for the forums. Its that simple. They have employed people to make these types of decisions for them. Like it or not, thats the way it is. Why not make the most of what we have been given freely?

04-17-2006, 08:27 PM
Freely, i hope so for their games. And exactly lets make it the most of what we can.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
Who are those peoples because if they are employed they are not doing well their job then.. right? But this is just my opinion. i can call them in France if you wish ?

04-17-2006, 08:38 PM
At the bottom of every forum is a link, Contact Us. Its there for your use, if you choose.

04-17-2006, 08:43 PM
yes i can do this but first we should see what everyone wants too, yes or not also for sure the german link should be fixed.
If we are all agree then i'll call Julien.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Chuck explained it very well.

IL2 = stand alone
FB = stand alone (replacing IL2)
PF = stand alone

Rest are add ons that require the full game to run.

Did PF as a stand alone ever make sense, now that's the real question!

Remember some community members were pretty extatic to get rid of what they basically called Euro-centrics (well more like -trash) and have a forum of their own.

I disagree as much as i possibly could with merging the forums. I hate the idea. PF forums are so boring (even though this place is too at times) and also, this is GENERAL DISCUSSION, not specific to PF or FB. This is a chill out zone. I dont want it crammed full of bollox about how to raise my wildcats gear or shoot torpedoes. Thats gay.

The germany forum is allready merged with good results in my eyes.

So we could read raaaids posts?

It's been discussed several times already both in GD and in PF forums. On each occasion the community's response has been more or less evenly split and admin have indicated no interest in merging the forums.

As time goes by traffic in the PF forum gradually reduces. I suspect that when that traffic drops below the traffic on some of the other game forums at this site they might consider a merge, but a quick look at the post counts shows that PF still gets more traffic than some entire games do.

Either way, I wouldn't expect a change in position on this issue from the admins until BoB comes out.
