I don't feel that my expectations are set very high.  Like so many others have stated, all we want is a fun place to fly and get decent fights.  This is not currently the case.

Niether of these can exist with players that just want kills; players so selfish that they deny a fight by HOing.

Could you define 'HO'*?  I keep hearing various definitions of this term.  I once thought I was clear on it being a dead-on, nose-to-nose zero degree deflection shot.  It appears I was in error.












* By 'HO' I mean "head on", not 'Ho' as in "Yo mama's a..."   :D

No, I think you have it. As in 'it takes two.' As in 'they can be avoided by one or the other.' As in 'deny what?'  :D

P.S. I think Dolb was joking.  :)

I thought it came from "hosing", the spraying of guns in the hope of hitting something.

Again, thanks for all the posts on this thread.

The overwhelming sentiment of the thread is that there is a need for change.  A number of suggestions have been made, many of which would get my support.

It is now down to Hitech and its player base to work together to responsibly create solutions to our problems while we still have a game left that is worth saving.

I think it is time for someone from Hitech to take up our issues and respond with what they plan to do about it.  We have given Hitech plenty of ideas, I'm sure they have a few of their own, so let's get the ball rolling.

Getting the FNGs in the TA learning about how to get behind the 3/9 line before being let loose is the most encouraging this in the thread.

Respectfully you have filtered the comments which support your present mental track. You will inevitably leave the game unless you revise this, it's just a question of when that point comes where your escalating frustration displaces the last bit of fun you are having. You're on a hiding to nothing with this approach. You'll never even reach agreement on what constitutes improvement. Best way to make a change is to start by changing yourself.


Better a bloody good fight and a loss than no fight at all.

If by change you mean a reassessment on your part, I agree. There doesn't seem more than a single pitchfork and torch amongst the thread. Lots of advice was given, however. By and large, we are our own problems.  :aok

Careful Puller, you are using logic in this.  Logic is bad.  That is a no, no. :noid
