  1. I agree wholeheartedly. I have spent money on a few EA projects that have flopped and I was out the money, but I NEVER went whining for that money back. I knew EXACTLY what I was getting into and it just didn't pan out. ALL EA modules in ED's store are clearly listed as such. I never bought the Hawk, mainly because I was told it was less than good and not worth the money even on sale. I do, however, have the Hornet, Tomcat, Harrier and Viggen and have gotten way more than my money's worth on them, with the exception of the Tomcat, though I have no doubts I will on that, too. I know what early
  2. I didn't ignore your points. I pointed out how you were wrong. And my opinion is based on the 4 years of college I had for business management. Have you had the schooling? It's not my opinion, it is fairly basic knowledge for that type of schooling. I was just trying to impart that knowledge on people who seem to have a somewhat skewed view on what is going on here. Unless there are warranties involved, no one is entitled to anything back. 3 months for digital content is a fairly reasonable period of time for a refund, even though it is not required. And, as has been stated before, no amount o
  3. Lol, sorry. That was my fault. I was late to the party.
  4. Indeed. The thing that gets me is that the entire concept of early access and kickstarters follows the exact same perimeters as when you go to investors to start a business. You don't have the funds to complete the project on your own, so you look for help. In the business world this usually does equate to money back, but in the gaming world, it equates to being able to test the game/module well before it is released and then continue to enjoy that game/module for years to come when it is finished. Not sure how that is so hard to comprehend.
  5. Look, I can't show you how to use Google. I suggest taking business management courses and when you get to investments, tell your instructor your definition of investment. I will agree, most point to profit, but I will reiterate, it DOES NOT have to be for financial profit. Personal profit in this case would be years of flight time with a finished module. Pretty sure that would be worth more than what you put into it. That is what early access is.
  6. Right, but as times evolve, so do definitions. Even if you want to go that route, you still are putting money down on a product that is unfinished and may never be finished, and are knowingly taking that risk. Maybe you get it, maybe you don't. But you are still responsible for your decision, not ED. That is the nature of early access. Always has been even before Hawk was released. And there are no laws saying they have to pay. Sure, some countries are enacting laws to protect consumers from digital product scams, but let's say a lawsuit is filed in the UK against ED, a Russian company, they c
  7. I will repost the definition highlighting it. the action or process of investing money for PROFIT or MATERIAL RESULT. Keyword "or".
  8. You conveniently left out "material result", in this case, a finished Hawk. An investment doesn't have to be for profit, though usually it is.
  9. in·vest·ment /inˈves(t)mənt/Submit noun 1. the action or process of investing money for profit or material result.
  10. I most certainly did read your post, but your OPINION that you are not an investor does not make it true. I suggest you do some research on what Early Access means. Google is your friend. A nice quote to help understand it is "These players help fund the game to completion, but take a risk that the game may never reach a final release." If you don't think that is investing, then perhaps you should read up on what investing is as well.
  11. After reading all 311 posts, I have come to the realization that some people just have never had any business schooling. In order to convey ED's decision a little better, maybe it is helpful to illustrate it with numbers. With that in mind, it is worth noting that VEAO using ED's store to sell their product is like consignment. ED allows VEAO to use their sales medium for a small cut, for my purpose I will use 10% as I do not have access to actual numbers, but it isn't going to be a lot and VEAO is still 100% responsible for their product and quality of it. Ok, so lets say that over the co
  12. Not really sure about the zoom since I use VR, but I, too, have the warthog and my throttles work perfectly. You do have to bind the "button" on each throttle to cut fuel to the engines just as it does in the aircraft. One thing I do notice is, each time I load in to the aircraft (A-10 as well), I have to move each throttle full forward and all the way back again, then I can use it to start the engines. Minor thing, but worth noting, possibly.
