It is rather silly to wipe someone's account if they didnt pay for a month.  A couple hundred kilobytes is nothing with our player base, but it can discourage people to come back if they cant have their name or perks back.  I've lost count of how all my handles because I take mini breaks over the past 24 years.  It would be nice to be known by one name though.

Players can have their name back (though I am fine with the slight changes I've made). I could have called Dale and I'd be flying as 'Arlo' now. Perks gotta be maintained in an active account or they expire. Most players know that (and all should). It really is incentive to keep your account active. A player stomping feet or having a public pity party because they let their own perks expire (purposefully or not) is rather distasteful to watch.

I cancelled my account two months ago, but unfortunately I didn't catch that it was still being billed until the 2nd charge.  Put in a refund request on the day it was charged but that went ignored.  After going through records and seeing the thousand dollars spent on the game I think I need to find me a one time purchase game to hold me over.

Then do so. Are you posting here for advice or to stir?

I occasionally compare the monthly AH club dues as well as the hardware we buy to something like golf, for instance, and smile at the bargain.  :cool:

Advice on a game if you know of any.  I've looked into IL-2 but there are so many versions I dont know which one is the one to get. 
I dont mind stirring as well though, it would be nice if AH changed with the times and went away from the $15/month, it can't cost that much to maintain the 286 cpu running the game.  I've tried to bring so many people to this game, who ultimately enjoy it, but are extremely put off by monthly fees.  The same people spend more money playing free games like War Thunder and World of Tanks/Warhips, etc.

Not much you can do for as little as AH cost. Of course some folks just sit at home... those will definitely think it is a huge amount. You can bet though... if they do anything at all... they want to be paid for it.

I don't know of any game of this genre that plays as well as AH. You, yourself, say its cheaper than FTP for most players that devote their time and expense there. Seems a shame you think losing perks due to non-maintenance of your account warrants coming here to ask for alternative games from members of this long-time community.

Good luck. Here's to your journey leading back here with some valuable new insight.

 "Changing with the times" means finding folks who think something is free because you put free in the name or description... regardless of how much they have to pay for every little thing they want to use in the game.

A mere three months (or is it four?) of Aces High sub payments can get you this beauty in WT:

They'd have to pay me $45 just to fly that ugly thing. Plus another $45 or so to actually play their dumb game.
