No new players want to play this game. It is way too old for the newer generation to even consider. No matter how many times you share anything Aces High 3 trying to get players either to return or new players it is always the same response.

Game is way too out of date.

Good thinking but wasted efforts.

The response I've seen the most is about the subscription based model. I guess people expect to have to buy the planes these days? Maybe changing it to you can get all the 40 eny planes for a base purchase and you have to buy the "better" planes would change this?

I don't think it's a waste of time to try to promote the game but I think it's important to see what stopping new players from joining and try to address it. Otherwise you would be correct that it is a waste of time.

Really appreciate you taking time out of your day to write that. I know it took a lot of courage to speak up and give your opinion.

May want to try the Hoggit subreddit. Have around 101K members.

Also the Hoggit Discord is very active - https://discord.gg/hoggit


I know it's DCS based but there are spots for other games there.

Agreed. Hoggit is very active.

No I truly mean it, your contributions to this community are noble and just. I don't know what we'd do without your knowledge and your fight for the truth!

I'd like to know why that when I  search a subject online lately, reddit  is so prominent?   :noid.
I'd like to see more videos on Rumble that showcase AH 3.

I think k that’s why they call it the front page of the internet… or something like that.

I think I have found another one for my Ignore list.  :rolleyes:

After reading his post across the board, I'd hope HiTech puts him on a permanent ignore list for everyone.  Contributing nothing and bashing the game every chance he gets.  Must have had his feelings hurt over here.

The AH Reddit has 85 members. Too bad it’s not not active it would go a long way for building attention.

I just like seeing you old timers cry about the smallest of things.

Go play in your helicopter.  I'm not crying about sht.  The more time you spend there the less you post your handsomehunkz trash in here.  You must have got owned pretty hard here to need to return to the forums just to talk grabage.

I don't think anyone else places any importance on what you say. I can't imagine anyone crying over your rumblings.

However I will add you to the few on my list.....

Nonsense, we have return players every week. MA numbers have come up. We know your well established agenda. No effort is wasted effort.

You chose your games, we choose our games. There’s nothing to do in pretty planes except learn the next plane cockpit. This crowd enjoys MP. The arrogance that people are happy with their own choices is stupid, is stupid.  You do you, we’ll do us. Some like more than sitting on a runway learning buttons. Which is why some fly both, they still desire what pretty planes doesn’t offer, true MP. Without this outlet pretty planes may seem even more boring when that reality hammer slams., more evident that it is.

One might think 1001 attempts to obtain a mass migration without getting different results, could be viewed as insanity. Pretty planes has been around a long time, you’ve gotten what you have a chance to get. Their peak is over. You tend to look more a fool than a wise man with good judgement. “if you’re not in the pretty planes cult, well you’re just a stupid human…”, you’ve become freakish,…creepy.

If this game were to close, I predict the majority will take on IL-2. That said, they just lost a main programmer.

You do you, we’ll do us.
