  1. Haha, well if you don't have the imagination to see the parallels in the analogy, then I just hope you enjoyed the story. (maybe I shouldn't of been so abstract and just aimed for a 1:1 representation instead ) You can't see how a "hand made" product that took years to make like CMx1 can be/could be/was seen by BFC as "their baby"? I have even seen BFC use the phrase "it's like someone telling you your baby is ugly" in reference to how they handle critiscm. Absolutely unavoidable. But were BFC particularly vulnerable/too vulnerable to it? </font>
  2. Not sure I get you here. Are you proposing time freezing while a commander spends all the time in the world thinking about what to do next in an intense firefight more arcurately represents reality? </font>

  4. From the town of bedrock, curtesy of Fred's two feet. Funny stuff..... Let's get out of here Barn......
  5. Yeah! Out of Eight rulzzzz!!!!!111!! [/QB]</font>
  6. I see the same things you guys see. I'm under an NDA and don't really want to bite the hand that feeds me, but I also have an inside look at all the talk about what needs to be addressed, and all the different ideas about how to do it. It makes me feel pretty confident. If I could have one wish come true with regards to the game, it would be that we could wave a magic wand and flash forward in time. In the meantime, you guys have to realize two things; a) the developers have already delivered pretty significant advances over the previous engine - and the most mind blowing stuff unfortunately was done so well, they made it look effortless. Relative spotting and the new editor stand out especially for me, not to mention the 3D models in game - getting down low, it really looks a lot like Operation Flashpoint at times, and that says a lot. I mean, the damn wheels actually turn on the tanks. the developers haven't gone anywhere. We testers are testing new ideas and bug fixes constantly. But the developers also believe that it's dangerous to make promises they can't keep. So you guys don't get updated every thirty seconds. You hear about the stuff when it's a reality. I think it's the right policy. If I sound like a "fan-boy", well, that's why. I know what's going on behind Door Number Three and I like what I see. You guys will too. </font>
  7. Why comment on something you haven't even read?
  8. I wasn't even trying to. Truth be told, I didn't read it. I mean - it's a blog. I rate them about as important as my sister's junior high school diary. The name alone defies anyone to take it seriously. Arse-geek? You can have the most lucid prose in the world prosecuting the most logical review in the history of modern man, and it just wouldn't mean a single thing to me. It's barely a step up from writing in your Facebook profile, isn't it? </font>
  9. Since all games boil down to simple mathmatics, couldn't someone just create an equation and plug in the numbers for each unit then have it spit out the relative cost?. I realize this isn't very specific and I may come off a bit daft by saying it this way but it seems rather simple to me. Then again, I'm sure plenty of folks will point out the flaws in my thinking here.
  10. It must have ranked higher than that on the funny as hell meter, however.
  11. I don't think he meant American football if that's what you alluding to.
  12. Ummm, why in god's name would a non-gamer be posting in game forum?
  13. Well for starters I need to setup a mail server in the room and give everyone email software and accounts. Then you have all the other issues of loading the new turn / file from scratch every time, etc. </font>
  14. Why wouldn't it be practical on a LAN? edit: oops, flanker15 already said this. Sorry. I agree though.
