The Internet ends at GF
3rd November 2002
I'm tired of a few individuals who insist on making patches or new maps, and especially those who are constantly whining that they want to be a beta tester/dev/l33t AA hax0r/etc.
I'm not gonna name any names, you know who you are.
I'm posting this only in the hopes that some moderator reads it and agrees with my opinion.
It's guys like them that give mod makers a bad name. I was planning on releasing a new Opfor training, 1on1 deathmatch, and a great commo/map pack i've been working on, but I'm not going to now.
There's no reason I should be an exception to the rule, even if I'm not actually modifying the game itself and creating my own "patch".
I've helped HA and the Devs track down possible cheats even since my first mod. I've done everything I could to put my skills to good use and help others play better WITHOUT cheating.
But, it's obvious to me that mod making will only take a turn for the worse with AA. I'd like to plead with AAfiles.com to remove the mod making, map making, etc. AA forums. If you so desire, you may remove my mods from AAfiles.com as well.
It's a shame really. I know these guys meant well, but they kept pressing the issue despite many warnings, from myself, fellow clan members, and even one of the Devs.
I've got a job offer with an IT department fixing computers, maybe I should take it and get away from AA for a while.
noooo stay with AA but I agree about the moaners.
Personally I would never want to be a beta tester might spoil my fun and enjoyment of a finished product.
Most IT people play AA just look for people with really high honor, play all day at work on super high speed connections and so get high honor due to time and no low pings!
Seriously don't let the annoying people drive you away it leaves us with fewer good guys to play the game for the fun of it and not what they can do to it by cheating etc.
Just ignore the moaners. I left the game for 1 whole patch and went to counter strike, but then i was dieing to play AA so i put it back on.

Ratbag, I cant even believe you left. I have stayed for ALL of AA... Even the 1.2.0 patch. That SUCKED!! The devs are doing their best to make us happy. What other game do you know of that releases either new maps or new training(which I think is funner than maps). Yes, I would like a new map and a new patch as soon as the new ones come out, but only because I want to see what the army can possibly do to make the game even more badass than it already is. Though i dont whine and moan about it. The only thing I am complaining about is the damn shell shock hehe :) Stay Phantom, you keep us honest and give us good intel on things! If you leave then we have no one to trust :)
well it got boring man, so i needed a change. and now im gettin so pissed off with hackers!!!!!:mad:
hackers suck but that we need the honest players to stay and soon the hackers will get bored and go and play with something else
YEh, but I think they need to make something to detect cheaters. because there is nothing now to detect them is there?
Happy to be back

U people really need to get a life and do something productive rather then siting on your :moon: shoting at other people that need to get a life. I used to play AA 7 hours a week but i noticed i was so messed up... how could u say that patching a game isn't fun because i can get bored real fast and it amazes me that u r acctually reading up to this point but i will continue! STOP BEING LAZY AND TRY TO WORK Americas army is a great game (basically because it is free) But its not so great when u play for 4 hours and notice your now divorced! I especially love to see the 35 year old guys that live with there moms on servers! May be if they had a life they could have there own house! Making games is my life and I do not intend on destroying the game Americas Army but if I get what I want with what I m doing then everyone will agree and I will make it official! :eek:
Believe it or not some of us are happily married with wives who enjoy AA and so maybe you should try being inclusive with your partner not exclusive!
BTW I have a life and still find time to play AA. People who get bored can't appreciate the enjoyment that can be had by playing a game to the best of their ability and generally are bad at the game hence they need to adapt it so they can play it well.
Sorry if this offends but thats how i feel!
Even worse is as someone who shoots down those sad people who play for long hrs you read a forum and reply to it so are you not worse then us sad devoted freaks.
p.s. I have my own house and am married so.......

Yea.. I am happily married work 8 hours a day, have an awesome 6 yr old son who loves to kick ass on AA and I have time to play with him also. I play MORE than 7 hours a week and still have time for a social life. I dont know what your problem is but take it somewhere else
