I used to love this game. Lately, not so much... I came here by way of Airline Online, Frank Zimmermann's magnum opus, which was the best of them all and I was sorry to see it fly away.

 

Playing here used to be a good substitute for it. I've met some fine players here who, like me, have been around for a while, but lately it seems the game is attracting only players whose sole motivation is 'to win' at all costs, by any means possible - whether that's cheating by oversaturating every market they can, whether it's forming pacts (not alliances) behind the scenes with one or two other players to then 'gang up' on others like cheap thugs (yes, there are a lot of them!), whatever - the point is that those players should be supervised more closely and possibly be confined to games especially designed for them - where 'winning is all that matters' might actually be the sole object of the game. Could something like that ('Free for all, no rules') be arranged to get them all out of the regular games?

 

As for me (and I know I speak for a number of other longtime players here), it's the game that counts - from playing it fairly, trying to get to know co-players, all the way through the enjoyment of seeing your 'baby' grow or having to bail out and start over. If you happen to play well enough to win or be in the top 10 in a game, well, that's just the icing on the cake, not the be all, end all reason for being here.

It's a wonderful concept but horribly abused by punks that spam the s*** out of it.  There is no way some clown can operate 15 747s between PHX and JFK with five other airlines competing for seats.  The game should bankrupt his spamming little ass in one day, but somehow, these losers think they've really captured the market.  They call it winning.  The real world calls it cheating.  If not for that, which is a wide spread and pervasive problem, this would be a great game.  But, let the little spammers whine about how it's all part of it -- when their break is over, it's back to mopping french fry grease off the floor.  If the developers wanted to do one thing that would make this the supreme sim game online today, they'd make sure anyone cheating the system is gone in a day's worth of business.  Make the consequences for spamliners so cost prohibitive they can't stay in the game.  Play right square or be gone. 

 

ABSOLUTELY and 100% ON POINT.  Maybe we should start naming names? Although I doubt these punks would care and just laugh and call us 'boomers.'  :disgusted:

i am wondering here "bad"..... i am wondering if this "the post above" is the maddest you can get ? or is their

anything else some of us "tired players" can do to really get you to have an even bigger sissy melt down..

 

can you just have your stoke and get it over with already???? a brain freeze ? or even a hemorrhage.

 

something, anything.... just stop repeating yourself.... we all heard you the first 8 times....

 

We shouldn't have to 'stoke it' and 'get over it' and be made to feel bad for 'sissy meltdowns.' You belong right in with the punks if you feel that way.

whether that's cheating by oversaturating every market they can

 

Spamlining is not cheating or against the rules of this game.

 

it's the game that counts - from playing it fairly

 

I have never seen a player play “unfairly”. Anything other than hacking or multi-accounting is fair game.

I found this game a long time ago, so I'm not sure why I chose this one over others.  However, I really like the open worlds because I like being able to open flights anywhere in the world.  I don't really play in the other worlds and I don't think I would play very often if the open worlds were not available.
