First I would like to point out that I am not IL's puppet. I do not agree with him on lots of stuff. And the story your wrote is completely disrespectful to IL and I.Flashman wrote:more like 5% error rate because you male claims on the names of territories which themselves comprise of 'unofficial' carvings of territories due to game purposes of which you have no understanding. Those territories can have any number of names because they don't represent anything other than a name.
IL at his carpet-chewing best, there.
Scene: The skies over Rio de Oro
Captain Imperious Leader and his no. 2 Nuclear are flying their B-26 round in circles. They are clearly lost, but neither wants to admit as much.
IL: Hey, Nuke, isn't it time we dropped our bomb load? We should be over the Reich by now, surely.
N: But isn't that desert down there? There isn't a desert within a hundred miles of Berlin.
IL: Who cares? We've been flying for 3 hours, so we must be near enough.
N: But it looks like, yes, it's Rio de Oro! Why waste bombs on a garbage territory like that. Besides, since our boys went in last year it's been on our side.
IL: So? We're Americans; dropping bombs on countries we couldn't point out on a map is our national sport!
N: Are you sure it's OK to bomb a country that's coloured neutral white?
IL: Remember when we flattened Ethiopia? That was coloured mauve for interesting gameplay purposes, and we decided to go ahead and bomb the place anyway. Y'know, I just wish sometimes that the world was square and divided up like a chessboard so we didn't have to worry about all these squiggly lines and confusing names and colours.
N: You should retire back to your beach house in The Southern West-East Rockies American combat zone, and take some long swims in sea zone 13.
IL: Don't be so soulless, AAF5743. Things have names for a good reason. So use them. And be accurate. Do it properly. Show a bit of professionalism by doing some thorough research. My God, I'm beginning to sound like Flashman!
N: You really do need to retire. Please. Do us all a favour.
IL dons parachute and jumps out, landing awkwardly in the middle of the desert. And nothing is ever heard of him again. Except for the sound of strangular yells.
As for my North Altantic map, I think it is coming along pretty well. I do not understand your objections made in this thread along with the story above.
Flashman, when I have ever made disrespectful stories about you?
Sooner or later I may just leave this forum because I am tired of individuals such as yourself. Thinking you know when you do not.
Hey, IL which forum is it, that you are a mod of? I may just decide to go there.
