I think that this whole frigging thread has been a wasted troll and absolutely a waste of server load.  I have talked with a lot of my "mega squad" squaddies and the majority think that the multiple arena thing is a good deal.  The majority of us waited a week to see how it all shaked out and besides the low cap limitation and the obvious eny tweaking that couldn't be done until it was tested and worked for a while, most of don't have a problem.  I can't understand why one squads rule would be such a killer to the game now when the game has withstood birthing and trial by fire has proven to prevail against it's competition.  

I question just WHY we now have the questions about squads and "mega-squads" being such an issue.  Those that call the problem of the "Horde" are not privy to the facts that the "Horde" is NOT just one squad.  The "Horde' is usually made up of new flyers that just haven't found a home because they have not been properly introduced to our play and have found safety in numbers.  The vast majority of us migrated from Airwarrior, Warbirds, or fighterAce and know what to expect.  HTC introduced mass marketing via TV and brought in a whole new community.  We as a whole are the cause of the degradation of gameplay as we as a COMMUNITY have not responded to the needs or the introduction of the game to new players!  Yes we have a training arena but there are NOT enough of those selfless individuals to train and hours in a day to really train others.  I have been involved in AW to AH from 1995 to present and have not been trained as my work schedule is so fluid that I could never set a time to attend training and had to depend on squaddies to help me as they could.  We are all to blame here and should not single out individuals or squads.  Growth has pains and we are just living with some growing pains and we as a "community" have not grown enough to give what we need to give.

All the Best...

Dud I think this one makes 994. Definitely in striking range...though we have to be careful to not punt or post non-substantive drivel that might get us locked at the end.

Therefore, let me try to summarize the preceding 993 posts:

1. The changes stink

2. The changes are great.

3. HT is part of the grand Illuminati conspiracy theory encomapssing the DaVinci Code, the grassy knoll, the price of gas, terrorism, the 2000 election, and whole wheat bread.

4. HT is a creative genius, though as a genius some quirks and eccentricities should be expected.

5. BK's are the source of all that is evil.

6. Large squads are the source of all that is evil.

7. You're a putz.

8. No, you're a putz.

9. Am not.

10. Are too.

11. AM NOT!

12. ARE TOO, and SO's YER MOMMA.

13. Return to #1.






Any questions or further comments, well - we can start from there.
Maturity is knowing that I've been an idiot in the past.
Wisdom is realizing I will be an idiot in the future.
Common sense is trying to not be an idiot right now
