Your invocation of the so called Capitalist Death Drive smacks of sloppy philosophical discourse. In a purely Lacanian sense, and really that is the only school of theory relevant when discussing the basics of psychoanalysis, the death drive does not have any corollary to the actions you undertake in the world of Airline Empires. A much more nuanced reading would be through the lens of the hyper-real as the simulation of capitalism present in the game accelerates and breaks down under pressure to the system, thus achieving a sort of symbolic exchange where the constraints of the real world are eschewed and information about airport travel figures and aircraft types fade out of importance through exploitation of profit sources in the simulation. If Airline Empires is read through the lens of Bjerg as a game, then you have already lost because your discursive act was against the game instead of the law and so you have succumbed to desire as opposed to accepting the unenforced rules of the game and stepping into a world not structured by desire and law.


Ah how we enjoy having philosphers in our court, you will fit in nicely. Just this once, however, We will let you know not to give the impression that you are better-read than The Emperor.

And no, I don't talk like that. Just remember that some people actually want to enjoy the game - trying to fight off spamliners like you isn't ever entertaining for anyone but yourself. Please take your unwarranted bronze awards and your ego some place where they're welcome.

We? You. And what you should do with them is take them some place people actually positively care about them. The only person on these forums who actually likes you from what it looks like is yourself.

Spamliners are airlines, often with a single letter name like "a", "b", "c" etc, that are designed to kill off every other airline. Often times a user will set up several accounts, set up an airline on each account and form alliances between these airlines.

It is Our prerogative to use the royal We on account of Our status as Emperor. As a barbarian it is your right to submit or be crushed.

Not just this, but they exploit the game's mechanics by setting every city as a hub, which seems to generate magical numbers of connections that build on each other and spirals out of control. Most of them you can take 100% of the O/D passengers and they wouldn't even notice because they're filling 100,000 seats between two destinations that have demand for 10 people daily all off of these exploited algorithms around connecting passengers.

On a previous, now deleted account, I remember when trying to run a semi realistic airline was fun. I remember when trying to be an independent airline without an alliance was fun.

Now its just BS, i don't even like playing anymore, I just do it to pass time at work.

You aren't an emperor, you're most likely just some 30 year old neckbeard in his mom's basement. There is no "submit or be crushed". Please remove yourself, honestly - the only person who gets enjoyment out of any of this is you. Go troll on some other airline sim. We don't like you here.

It's shameful. There's absolutely no honour in not playing by the rules, written or not. I don't understand why these people have this much free time to actually figure out ways to break the game to the detriment of everyone else's enjoyment. It's genuinely such a pity we have to put up with people like that, especially with Yuxi not doing anything about it at all despite being, like, the only "active" administrative member from what I can tell.

It's hard to enjoy something when particular individuals just suck the fun out of it. I don't even understand what's so enjoyable about only playing with spamlines? Schadenfreude ad nauseam loses its value extremely quickly. It's not charming. It's not pretty.

 

@atnt71eb - you're just an ugly thorn in the side of the community. You should leave. And that is a hill I am, and many others are, ready to die on.

Actually one of Our perks is ants fly free. Sure, We charge $75 for a crappy dinner but the ants joining you for dinner are free.

That you don't understand why The Empire would never fly this route explains why you can't approach The Emperor, despite the numerous times We've disclosed our methods.

Can I ask you what you underlying intentions are? Are you simply looking to accrue as many trophies as possible?
