Sorry FearlessFrog, I assumed I was allowed to comment on what people said. That's sort of what we do in forums, right?
Right here people are commenting on a product, complaining about the pricetag, and I express my inability to understand that complaint and pointing out the inherent double-standard of that complaint. (Basically the point being that this complaint was not leveraged against other companies releasing the same type of product - that requires
a double standard, not as a sort of moral judgement, just as a pure fact. Everyone does this about something, just usually uncounsciously, wherefore I personally find it to actually be helpful to have it pointed out - when it isn't pointed out to me I risk continuing in that error.
Personally I think it's because people have sort of decided what ED is "doing" and anything that doesn't fit that expectation makes people disappointed since it isn't what they excepted. Sort of like how people were up in arms at the new Syndicate game or when Microsoft Flight wasn't the same type of product as the old MSFS series.
To make the simple comparison:
A2A products: Just fine and dandy, superb stuff, give us more please.
ED's P-51D: Not fine, too expensive, needs WW2 map, needs WW2 opponents etcetera etcetera.
I cannot be the only one that does not understand the above, right?
Personally, I like both of them. (Even though they both commit the crime of not selling us AT-802U's, I can forgive them.)
Now, if you're one of the people that wouldn't purchase the A2A planes either, then that's fine. That's not what I'm adressing.
