Also Id like to add BFC has an EXCELLENT track record of support and discussion with the community.

Not on Facebook's computer warfare group it doesn't.  It is often brought up as an example of what not to do.  My own opinion is that BF support is top notch, I've had ALL of my problems handled within a couple of hours even when they occurred on weekends and holidays but communication is poor.

Brave Rinaldi, Miller and others have long battled against those who think the lack of communication and fixes is acceptable!  Fortunately many others have come to their aid as more forum posters grow restless after months and months of nothing.

I didn't put anyone specific for the orcs but they represent the people who think the current situation is reasonable (of course they can believe what they wish but in this video they're shown to be wrong) and in general represent steve's lack of communication and fixes.

Just Great, Solumon's Temple !...Now, where the FRACK am I in all this...You better go back and edit :-\

Well its really simple isnt it.If the feeling that the way things BFC is doing is unacceptable than perhaps take your business elsewhere. If you think youre being totally ignored why continue to wail and gnash your teeth towards...a source youre complaining about ignoring you?

Sorry seen this about 5 times on these boards.  In a day, a week, a month, whenever Steve or someone will pop in with stuff and more than half of the sourest people here will be gushing all over steve.  Oh its great to character assasinate them now - but 2 weeks from now after your 5 page question, to which steve gives a one word answer; you.ll be doing verbal somersaults "hooray for steve! thx for answering me i feel so awesome!!'

Some more who get frustrated and leave ( psh I just have it happen for no reason here ) will meander back here eventually.

At the end of the day the nicer worded posts made good points but were made by intelligent people who.ve seen BFCs way of doing business for awile now and Im shocked theyre shocked.

Also at the end of the day some of the outright Kettlerian conspiracy theories make me wonder if some posters work at a troll farm in Russia somewhere and are using important agitprop equipment to peruse online message boards.

*(and also spread bat**** crazy rumors)

During your long absence the decoding section has been disbanded, Sublime. So please try to be more specific. And stop sending the same messages over and over again :D

Which long absence?  What messages over and over again?  What did you guys infiltrate Tinder as well?  Jeez you guys coulda just sent a response frm BarelylegalXoXo<3 or one of the other accounts saying " haha trolled loser!" instead of laughing at my akward attempts at variations of roses are red, violets are blue, poems.

Hmph.

Oh, finally I have met one person believing in CNN (Communist News Networks) conspiracy theories of russian bots being responsible for satanic and corrupt witches losing elections because of Putin... :D

Well.. not CNN.. and I dont know if that won him the election alone... but Russian bots? Yeah def believe that. MH17? Russians definitely did that. Donbass? Russians definitely involved and lying about it.  So basically whatever you were assuming about me in your head is probably rught you just got the backround wrong.

 

It has come to my attention however that Steve and BFC were Russian trolls going back to 56.6k modems in 99 ( coincidence Putin came to power 4 months after BO went gold? ha!)

We.ve all been had.

p.p.s. most of us americans dont think russians are satanists. we just think its odd so many russians luuurve their soft core gay Putin porn but are *all about* making homosexuality illegal. Almost like someones trying to prove something or fight.some inner nagging demon.

Oh and my cousins brothers friend was a SEAL operator in the Ukraine who loved nailing ethnic Russian babies to trees in crucifix positions.

Id say BFC coming from a 2 man operation in the late 90s to now is the opposite of not knowing how to run a business.

They never sold out at all. The same designers have been here since CMBO. I remember because Ive been on these boards since fall 99 and its the same team. smh.

That's I call an impressive proove of identity. :rolleyes:

Somehow it sounds a bit far fetched to me, that the way this company is run today it could be the same company that invented WEGO in 3D for PC and was so innovative with their developments all the time...

But hey, since an old forum account from their early days is still maintained, who will question such a strange transformation... ;)

Bro I can literally prove ( use the search function you can too) half of my life through these boards.

You have sporadic posts in the early 2ks when I was 115 or 16, started at 14.I even mention my age.

you have the posts when I was rlly messing my life up. The posts after. FFS look at my profile. Who the hell in America at least still uses AIM and ICQ?

Plenty of other old accounts around who can back me up. Steve Charles Moon et al have beem around since 99.  The beta testers have changed and the company expanded somewhat. I dont work for BFC in any form whatsoever but its right from Steves mouth (or fingers on a keyvoard) that charles still does almost all programming.

I also seem to recall that CMx1 was NOT the first WeGo game. I bet it was the best though..at least in its day.

Well, now it feels like the old Board again, people arguing furiously about Bren guns... Also a bit over-zealus defence of the company, a bit of hyperbole on the side of the complainers, and to top it off someone who doesn't believe in Charles and Steve's existence... makes me feel young again.

All that aside, this silence on the issue of the patch and the complete lack of updates on the website is a tad worrying.

I couldn't care less about the patch issues in comparison to the idea that the guys who has given me endless hours of entertainment for the last 20 years are in trouble in some way, since most of us here are in 'middle-age' we know what a lot of **** that life can throw at you once you hit 40 or thereabouts.

So, here's hoping it's just that the patch is turning out to be a right clusterbuck to adjust and that's all.

This is the internet equivalent to hearing "Are we there yet?" from the backseat. Even though we have taken a lot of trips together that turned out fine, even if we had to take the scenic route (ie. longer) a few times.

The drivers are all currently driving like maniacs, and need to concentrate completely on the road right now if we want to get to (insert desirable destination here).

We can pull off at a rest station when Steve gets to one. It's his car (along with a guy named Charles that seems to be in a cooler in the trunk) - he knows best (really) when its time to stop for a look at the roadmap.

As far as I know, the wheels are still on my car, and on those ahead. No fires either, only the road flying by under the wheels, like always.

...And another 15 minutes gone, since I got lost in this cul-de-sac.

For those of us who have been playing CM from the late 1990's, BF has earned a large reservoir of trust re what they are doing.  After the fiasco of the initial CMSF release BF dug deep and kept updating CMSF until it became superb.  Am confident that, barring catastophe (illness etc), BF will release a terrific new product when it is ready for prime time.  BF knows that one only gets one chance to make a good first impression.

In terms of keeping us informed of progress, of course that would be nice.  But, experience has shown that with programming and AI, it's very hard to predict completion dates.  One "small detail" can mushroom into a massive time-consuming issue.  

Over the years us old-timers have see exactly the same comments from impatient and frustrated gamers over and over (and over) again.  I am impatient as well.  But, it's preferable that BF spend all their resources working to produce the best possible product than dealing with PR.

The old company that created the innovative success of CM, was run by people having all the time in the world for long political posts, while they were years behind schedule?

Vlad calls me Mordski. When I am not trolling facebook tipping elections, I like to slip onto the BFC website and cause confusion and mayhem to hide the fact Steve ran off with everone's 4.0 money and Charles is nothing more than a smudge of goo in a dried up Helman's jar. It's a living.
