View Full Version : Merging FB+AEP and PF Forums

01-06-2005, 12:50 PM
Curious, I noticed over at SimHQ that they have merged their FB+AEP and PF forums together.

We talked about this over here a while ago. Are there any plans to do the same in the near future, or perhaps the publisher would prefer to provide their PF-only customers with their "own" forums?

I think it would be a good idea too.... especially since most of us are merged anyway.

No. No way. I say keep those ***** Footers out of here.....wha? what's that? Oh, Pacific Fighters.....er, um, nevermind.

I second that

Merge will let the PF Newbie see what FB Gold is all about, especially since FB Gold box is now cheaper than PF box. More FB sales, more FBP population growth.

Merge will let the bittered crusty FB/AEP Old Timers who don't have PF yet see what PF is all about. More PF sales, more FBP population growth.

Merge makes it easier on the serial moderators, a Happy serial mod is a thousand Happy pasters.


Just leave ORR as "standalone"

Defintely merge. I often forget to check both and miss things.

I think the split was done to "confirm" that PF is a "separate product", to follow UBI's publishing policy. Besides, the stress is now on PF sales, so it should be "exposed" even at the cost of Sturmovik series (see what happened to official IL-2 website).

Of course I'd vote for merging (at least after the first period of high PF sales - then noone from the UBI officials should ever complain).

BTW: Polish forum also retained PF under Sturmovik series. No need to play&pretend that this is a "complete new game".

Instead of a merger how about a hostile takeover! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

But who's gonna takeover who? Shall Sturmovik yeld to the Pacific Fighters or vice versa?

I'd forgotten about this server for a while, foolishly believing that all general IL2-related stuff was now going onto the PF forum (it does attract all kinds of stuff, not just PF related).

Good to be back.
