DCS Carrier Discussion


Airhunter

Recommended Posts

Just posted, we are working through the various media channels now.

 

Purpose of the video is for beginners who are not familiar with DCS.

 

thanks

 

Beginners will be disappointed when they see the module is not available. They will be very disappointed to see that you do not know when it will be released. They will also know that ED never makes promises and that it is only plans (everything is subject to change). The initial plan was to released one month ago....

 

I wonder why it was so urgent to make this video except to talk about a new EA with the P47

I assume a partial refund is coming to all the early pre-release purchasers who tried to support ED, only to then sell it with 50% discount right before release...?

 

It's not even like we have been able to use it in the meantime so actually gained any benefit whatsoever, so very different to a module going on sale later after release.

ED are really going all-out to try and dissuade pre-purchase decisions lately..

 

Eh? Its cheaper now than it was in January!!?? Really? How does that work with the additional hornet discount? I have been disappointed by the cancellations but, not really over bothered. Happy that it would come at some point. But it's on sale now?

Not going to lie, but that mini update was extremely disappointing and offered little substance to feel excited about, pretty much everyone knows how to download a module they paid for, come on Wags, you can do a lot better than that.

 

The only thing of any value in that update was that there's keystrokes that can be bound for the "salute" ..

 

3/10 for effort.

Oh wow.

The current price is 24.99 which is the same as I paid for the preorder discount including the additional hornet discount.

So at least for me it's not cheaper, but for those who bought it without the hornet, it would have been cheaper to not try and support ED by preordering.

It is good of them to offer discounts...but think about things like this first!

 

I wish ED great success, but every time their PR reminds me of the phrase "snatching defeat from the jaws of victory".

Not even surprised anymore. I love DCS but, the latest VIPER purchase was the last for me with pre-order sales. Receive a small discount to pre-order or wait a few months and get a 50% discount. Not a big deal with some games but these new modules sell for 103.00 Canadian on Steam. So a 50 dollar discount is huge! I can't justify a bad purchase like that.

Agreed, it was painful, by the feel of it even for Wags...

 

On the positive side though, I think there was a hidden message in the video, when the 'Shooter' spins his hands around in tight circles I think that was a signal that the Super Carrier release is in two weeks.

Yeah same for me, I'm assuming/hoping the hornet discount isn't being applied now. I.e cheaper still.....

I thought this too. Going to make cold and dark missions for myself where I get to watch 2-3 flights blast off while I start up. Its going to be awesome :)

I paid 24.99 on the first day of EA and got the SU-33 as a bonus. Do I feel ripped off? NO! Sales are sales take what you get and be glad you saved some money. Don;t be upset because someone saved more than you, that is how sales work.

That is NOT how sales work before an item is even released! Roll the dice, might be even cheaper tomorrow. Nonsense.

Stop whining endlessly please

Unfortunately, that's the morale around here lately. It sucks for people that are actually looking for some info. Do like me and make yourself scarce, because that's the only way to avoid it. Someone is always complaining/whining about something, derailing threads off-topic. Currently it's over $24.:megalol:

So true. An unfortunate result of ED refusing to post stickies with the most pertinent information.

This was not a planned sale, this was done as a little bit of a bright point in rather dark times for many people. No ill will was meant, nor was the price lower than anyone with the Hornet got it for before. We are sorry this has upset you, but it was not meant as a slight to anyone. Thanks.

The buy-in from free trial to paid product has been very good indeed, but as you said, believe what you will. That said... let's keep the discussion on the Supercarrier. Thanks.

So given it was an honest mistake and no ill was meant, those that paid more for the same pre-purchase of the product for absolutely no reason before it has been released will be getting an appropriate store credit.

 

Thanks! That is really big of you ED, I am sure your loyal customers who pre-purchase products to show their support will appreciate the kind gesture in these dark difficult times. :thumbup:
