Wasn't there a quote from BlackSix basically stating that they don't have anyone on staff who understand both aerodynamics and programming?

My opinion is that Clod has been kicked into the dark gloomy basement of 1cpublishing. They are only allowed a fraction of what little resources they may have to patch what we bought only because of possible returns on the expansion which is obviously where the bulk of the work is being done since we get plenty of "new" screenshots.

The thing is if we do not show support for the expansion likely some money grubber will pull the plug on the whole thing.

So lets all put on our best fake smiles and post away on how we all plan on buying 10 copies of the expansion..........

But really I hope they can fix it up.

Look at corporate info a bunch of sub par titles mentioned and nothing on this.

Wish more people got this, that probably the root of most of our angst rests on the publishers shoulders, the fact that the devs take the brunt of it is a shame if you really think about it...

Really we should take this campaign to the source, they have facebook dont they? We should have a IL2 COD discussion on their wall, they would love to see David and Furbs and all duke it out on the FB page wouldnt they

I can only guess the devs are running on min resources right now...

You know, this attitude is similar to the attitude that allowed American car companies to remain solvent, despite producing such awful vehicles for so many years.

People there would "Buy American" despite the vehicles being inferior in almost every aspect to foreign offerings. The companies had an artificially competition-free market, and thus no incentive to get better, and so they continued to make lousy vehicles.

Then, when the "Buy American" garbage finally died out, the car companies realized just how much catch-up ball they had to play which eventually resulted in them going bankrupt a few years ago.

--

It's the natural order of things. If a company can't produce a quality product now, and has no real competition (sound familiar?) then we should not expect that company to magically get better.

When you promise to buy the sequel no matter what, before it's even been released and before anything other than screenshots have been posted online, then you are perpetuating a destructive cycle.

Look what happened with the current debacle: Lots of fancy screenshots got posted years and years before BoB was released, and have a look at the state it's in.

The Red Orchestra series are actually quite good, and have sold many many copies in the English-speaking markets.
