Do any of y'all realize how childish all this is? The best thing about Hightech letting these threads go on for so long is it shows everyone who the game's ultra melons are.  :rolleyes:




Ultra melons is AcesHigh's word not mine.  Ultra melon heads is more like it.

This is what I wear when I play.    True story.   :old:

I have the ability to close all cross country messaging. I have been debating if I wan to run a test week with cross country disabled.

 Who thinks that it is a good idea to disable cross country chat?

+1  It would serve the game well.  I think Game generated Salutes should still be active.

Some people handle the trash talking well some don't. I don;t think it's healthy for the game to have everyone see it scrolling across the screen all the time. It just creates so much negative noise for the people that don't want to read it.  Perhaps default radio setting would have 200 de-tuned. '.P' messages should come with an out of the way menu box that asks if you want to receive a private message from so-and-so, with option buttons to Mute. If muted you get no more pop ups.  Making it easier to mute people might help. Perhaps right clicking on a message in the radio buffer lets you mute the sender.

In the end we should all be more immune to the rantings of aggravated players, but everyone has their limit for dishing and receiving. Some of these change might push that limit out a few hours.  :salute

Nonsense.   Blah blah blah


When 'Playing the Player' replaced playing the game, sportsmanship died, and our culture took a turn for the worst.

Look everyone, SPORTSMANSHIP. 

Couldn't refute a word I said, per par.

Pot meet kettle.

However, I agree that trash talk is bad for the game.   I was on the one-sided receiving end of it for years, which is why I finally started giving as good as I got.   The "elites" didn't like it when someone fought back.  We were expected to sit there and take it like good little noobs.

There’s so much in this thread that’s weird. Achoo claiming he don’t fly like rocky?  Max whining for skuzzy?  Vulcan continues to harass fees openly with racists insults?  I get muted for calling some one a sucktard lol. Must be why hitec doesn’t answer my emails of his mods in abilities to do any thing.


So why do you have to call the losing pilot anything? the pilot already feels bad for getting shot down, but you feel the need to egg him/her, or berate them, why? why can't you just something like good fight etc. when I manage to shoot someone down, I don't say anything unless they pm me and start complaining.

even in this forum some players berating each other, it's so ridiculous.

Yesterday one individual was mouthing off over and over. Only one other was really responding at first and then he quickly stopped. The original just kept going and going. Looked pretty silly.

How would two players on opposing sides hook up for a quick training session in the TA? How would they meet up for a duel in DA or a private arena? Also that would mean having no cross-country help channel anymore.
I'm not sure if that's a good idea in a time when one digit number of players per country are a regular occurrence... :headscratch:

This deals with more than 200, it deals with PM's as well.

It was directed towards getting muted for something as small as that. Not the actual fight itself. Keep up with us I can’t type any slower.
