Im pretty sure Luthier knows about the brake down of players , which does make the lack of single player and COOPs a very bad development decision IMO.
It will be interesting to see which way BOM goes.

Project management at Maddox/Luthier has always been a mystery to me, but CloD simply tops the cake in that regard. SpitGirl, the Italian Airforce, a single RAF bomber, basically no navy vessels, the abysmal campaigns, crew-able flak guns, driveable vehicles, dress-able pilot dolls, a poor weather system, I could go on and on...

Either they simply don't care what their fans want, they don't understand what their fans want or they are unable to create the content the fans want.

I'm sure there are some excellent technicians in the team, but there isn't a single game designer worth its salt in that team. And since they're building a "simulation" they believe they don't need one. Which is the big problem.

I think it is pretty clear what happened.

They had to release what they had, prematurely!

Then they had all hands full, and still have, to get their baby running adequately.

There are simply no resources left to develop new stuff, so they take what was already there from earlier development,

like the cars, guns, minelayer and earlier the spitgirl, and could be implemented with minimal work.

Just to pacify the community a bit without wasting precious resources.

And as usual, the community acts like: anything you do or say can and will be used to prosecute you.

A rather sad community that always is looking for something/someone to put the blame on.

If not shure, always in favour of the deliquent!

The sim community is mostly fine, just look at IL2, ROF, A10 and the other sims. The CLOD is split, divided, happy, sad, haters, fanboys say what you will...but its ONLY because the state of the game. If the sim was in a much better state we would be praising it and flying it.

Chivas, stop blaming a few forum members for CLOD problems.

The development of CLOD has nothing to do with us, Luthier made the decisions with it nobody else. Luthier picked "spitgirl" and said "trust me on this" nobody else.

The sooner you stop the handwringing yourself and get out from behide the sofa the better.

The public who are interested in buying CLOD will check out the online reviews first, then check the score, then prob look at utube videos of the game, then look for people views on forums.
None of what we say is untrue and its not our fault the online reviews are bad or any of the other problems.

That's Luthiers fault.

Edit. We ALL hope the next patch will do alot for CLOD, but Luthier has said the will be no more content for CLOD, whats unfinished will not get finished.

Lets hope the SDK and the community can finish the job.


First off I've never blamed a any members of any forum for the unfinished state of COD. But if thats your best argument so be it. The developers had to release an unfinished sim, which garnered alot of bad press, and deservedly so. I was as disappointed with the release as anyone else, but I understood that the development wasn't dead and the influx of cash would help the developers finish the sim. Everyone especially the developer understood along time ago whats working and not working, so your constant unrelenting whinging does absolutely no good, and at worst drives away potential buyers that could help finance the development.

Sometimes the guys do give the impression of workers trying to build a house starting with the roof ridge, then jumping to the installation of the plumbing, doing some isolation (for the non-existant walls) in between etc ...

My guess is they have no idea about PR so they are always suprised by the backlash their posts generate. People have clear priorities but apparently MG is living in a little world of its own where the clocks tick a bit differently. Kind of ivory tower ... only not so luxurious. wink

This. Bold, underlined, printed on DIN A0 and plastered across MG's office walls.

Ok your not blaming forum members for CLODs problems in development, i take that back Chivas smile

But you are saying we are affecting the future of the series more than Luthiers bad development decisions, sloppy management and the sim bad reviews and that isn't fair Chivas.


Chivas, CLOD is finished. Luthier has said no more content, some fixed "maybe" but that's it for CLOD.
Its Luthier who keeps dropping the ball not us.

I didn't say you and other negative people around here are a bigger problem than the developers unfinished release, but I certainly think your adding to the problem.

COD is certainly not dead, but I will agree the developer will probably not be making any further campaigns for the Battle of Britain, but they will certainly refine the tools for others to build those missions and campaigns.

The developer is optimizing the graphic engine to allow better frame rates for COD.
The developers will be making aircraft for other theaters that can be applied historically to missions on the COD map.
The developer will be refining the Graphics which can be applied to the COD map.
The developer will be refining the AI that will apply to COD.
The developer will be refining the Commands that will apply to COD.
The developer will be refining the FM that will apply to COD aircraft.
The developer will be refining the DM that will apply to COD.
The developer will be developing the SDK which will apply to COD.
The developer will be developing Map Making Tools that will apply to fixing areas of the COD map.
The community and third parties will be making aircraft that can be applied historically to the Battle of Britain.
The community and third parties will be designing missions and campaigns for the Battle of Britain.
The community and third parties will be modeling ships that could be used on the COD map. ie Jun 6th 1944 etc etc
The developer will be refining Radar contacts, etc that will be use in the Battle of Britain.
The developer will be modeling ground vehicles and tanks that could be used on the COD map.
The developer will be modeling Dynamic Weather that will be used on the COD map.
The developer will be modeling Human Animation that will be used on the COD map.
The developer will be enabling DX 11, maybe even DX 12, that will be used on the COD map.
The developer will be enabling AA and AF that will be used on the COD map.

This is just the start, I could go on, and on , and so could others add to the list, never mind any new features the developer hasn't mentioned.

COD isn't dead yet.
