Moving on towards the end of 2014....you guessed right. VEAO had certainly bitten off far more than they could chew.
Followed up buy none other than one of ED's future forum moderators in the making.
Here we see VEAO clutching for straws, portraying that their Hawk was on par with LN, Could anyone honestly say they entered VEAO's facebook comp to want to seriously use the Hawk key's? The gesture was nice....for fans of LN
as another development year draws closer to an end....there was still a glimmer of hope
At this point, VEAO were backseater's along for the ride. The ride inside the hype train had also sucked the developers in.
the post above shows Pete was enjoying himself saying anything that would entice the moderators to defend VEAO against the critics of the Hawk
Even NeilLine didn't know when to get off the bandwagon, scrolling through VEAO's threads is navigator Neil front and center defending VEAO from the sailors questioning the speed of the ship in uncharted Iceberg territory.
This is what I like to call the 'Balloon Factor" you take a balloon, blow a little air into it, it expands.......repeat over and over and as it expands, eventually it bursts.
Many of ED's fan bois could not take critique in any shape or form.
