Default So where is all the new players?

I can't find it on the top 100 games.

Was there any marketing done for this game at all?

Then click on "Top Sellers" and check the #1 on there.

It's not saying much, and it was only #2 a while ago, but still...

22 people in Multiplayer at 7:00pm Pacific Standard Time in the US. And this game was released in North America yesterday and been released to the rest of the planet for several months...

Sad.

All I see are 22 people who don't mind playing without sounds, or trees.

The rest of us are just patiently (sorta) waiting for the next super duper update that'll make the game properly playable online. Well at least I am anyway.

Anybody in North America who made a habit of keeping up with the game prior to the official release already bought it from Just Flight weeks or months ago. All that's left are the poor souls who haven't been staying on top of things. These guys installed the game yesterday or today, don't know how to optimize the game so it'll run smoothly, are just now realizing they don't know how to start the engine anymore, and if the engine does start they're trying to figure out why the radiator explodes after five seconds. What, this isn't just '46 with shadows in the cockpit?

Then they're fiddling with a hundred graphics options, searching for the sweet spot for their rig. They're assigning a boatload of new keybindings. They're practicing and testing over and over again. They're trying to play the stock offline campaigns.

In short, these guys who haven't been reading the forums all these months are going to need just a little bit of time to figure out how to play the game before they start showing up on servers. I hope enough of them wise up and start looking around for advice. Can you imagine trying to figure this sim out on your own?

Where is all the new players? I expect that most of them 'is' playing offline, fiddling with control settings, and flying through Tower Bridge like us Euro's did (only with less graphic stutters). Fortunately, most of them won't have noticed that St Paul's is missing, though they won't have the pleasure that us South-East-Englanders have of flying over home territory, to see how accurate it is - which amounts to 'near enough, if you are dogfighting at 5000 ft, but don't expect to find your own street, unless you live in Bucks House'.

They will also be trying to figure why the landing gear in a spitfire is called an undercarriage, except when it is called a chassis, and why the RAF lined up their hangers end on - before realising that it was so you could fly through the lot.

The rivet-counters amongst them will have no doubt noticed that it is actually possible to count rivets on a Bf 109 wing in flight, but not to fly it without sideslip at the same time - probably authentic - and the really adventurous will be flying that darned Italian fighter thing just out of curiosity. Actually, I expect a few of them will be contacting long-lost cousins in the 'old country', just for help with translating the instrument panel.

So, they 'is' doing what the rest of us did, only later. Who said that CloD wasn't historically accurate?
