Panman -> Taken the Plunge (6/12/2009 9:05:45 PM)

After falling in love with Uncommon Valor and seeing the manual for WitP AE, I dediced to finally take the plunge. The Mrs. is gone for the weekend ... think I picked the right time.

At least the house won't be a mess when she returns. The area around the PC may leave a little to be desired ;)

I best not forget to pick her up at the airport. Can popup reminders be added to the game? ;)




Canoerebel -> RE: Taken the Plunge (6/12/2009 9:09:48 PM)

Lord have mercy, she slips out for the weekend and when she returns her life will have been radically altered by a creeping menace, a jealous mistress, an alluring rival, and all-consuming passion that will have ensnared her husband in a web with strands so unbreakable that he will be helpless for years to come.

In other words:  Welcome to the fascinating world of WITP, Panman!




BigBadWolf -> RE: Taken the Plunge (6/12/2009 9:17:32 PM)

No! Listen to me, this is how they got me in the first place. There's still time, run! Run for your life man!

[;)]


Btw, I call dibbs on his first PBEM [:D]




tocaff -> RE: Taken the Plunge (6/12/2009 10:37:53 PM)

Don't run, enjoy it.  If your wife objects to your new "hobby" (read as passion) remind her that you're not out drinking or chasing women.  There'll be time for her between turns when you start playing PBEM.  My wife is glued to the TV and me to the computer.  I do stop playing around the time she goes to bed so that I can't be accused of ignoring her.

Welcome aboard.

I'm surprised she still tolerates you, Todd.

Welcome to the ‘beautiful game’ we call WitP, and remember about the need for food, and sleep.
About popups; I don’t think so, but 'rtrapasso' might be able to answer that better. [;)]




Panman -> RE: Taken the Plunge (6/13/2009 4:20:23 AM)

Thanks all for the warm welcome.  Looking forward to getting up to speed then joining in the great community here.

She may become jealous of the other women in your life: Betty, Val, Kate, Nell, ect[:D]

Welcome Panman

ditto the above. 

Ensure your coast watchers have instructions to be on the lookout for the silver bird carrying said returning partner. 

Check your lines of communication to make sure that said coast watchers don't mistake incoming enemy with the silver bird and cause you to be caught napping in the early stages of staying engaged with real life and doting on your new passion.




Aloid -> RE: Taken the Plunge (6/13/2009 7:22:26 AM)

Weekend? Hell now she can take that looong vacation she always wanted! :)




Panman -> RE: Taken the Plunge (6/13/2009 7:03:45 PM)

I was thinking if asking to see if she wanted to stay an extra day or two ... however, I thought that might tip her off to me having a new mistress [;)]

My only regret so far ... not having made the purchase sooner.

Better late than never!

True enough, unless the erstwhile WITPer has been diagnosed with a terminal disease and has been given less than two years to live!

Welcome to the tribe, the clan, the cult that is WiTP [:)]




mutterfudder -> RE: Taken the Plunge (6/16/2009 3:07:19 AM)

GOD have mercy.[;)]
Your life will not be the same.[:D]




sventhebold -> RE: Taken the Plunge (6/16/2009 3:41:30 PM)

Yes you too will learn as your eating lunch.... "Hmmmm Did I set the CAP at Manilla?"
Taking a break.... "Hmmm Did I load the right ENG group?"
Driving to your mother's house.... "Oh Crap The escorts! I forgot to set the escorts!"
Falling asleep.... "Where will they invade next and what is my counter strategy?"
The turn screen comes up... "AAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! They slaughtered my convoy!!!!!!!"

[:D]




DivePac88 -> RE: Taken the Plunge (6/16/2009 3:46:49 PM)

And you will wonder if KB is lurking in any body of water that you pass.

Where are you able to 'see' the manual for this one? I'm tempted.. price scares me, can't tell much by screen shots.. would like to 'see' the manual before making a decision..




Panman -> RE: Taken the Plunge (1/12/2010 2:58:44 AM)

Here is the link from the WitP AE Product page.

http://www.matrixgames.com/news/579/War.in.the.Pacific:.Admiral's.Edition.Manual.Preview

I have both Witp and AE ... have never regretted either purchase.




cmurphy625 -> RE: Taken the Plunge (1/12/2010 3:59:56 AM)

Was actually looking at Witp... is that manual kind of similar?




Bondo16 -> RE: Taken the Plunge (1/12/2010 6:13:17 AM)

Hopefully our wives dont band together and form the anti WITP forum. My "wife frown at immersed husband in WITP count" is nearing a million......




Bondo16 -> RE: Taken the Plunge (1/12/2010 6:14:52 AM)

AND!!!! She doesnt even like to hear me talk about how the wars going!!! Geesh.....lol




tocaff -> RE: Taken the Plunge (1/12/2010 11:20:53 AM)

Are the manuals of WITP and AE similar?  Yes they are both large and detailed so that learning either game is an unending endeavor.  Be able to beat the AI on hard and then get clocked in PBEM.  




Misconduct -> RE: Taken the Plunge (1/14/2010 12:17:16 AM)

blah since I was stupid enough to leave the WITP forums open, my girl went and read this forum post, now im doing extra chores for few days since I have "so much time to spend on my hobby"

I hope all you run smack into the KB with 0 CAP! [:@]

I feel for ya man.....I'm sure every guy in here would love to come over and help but we're all too busy playing WITP...




tocaff -> RE: Taken the Plunge (1/14/2010 10:53:30 AM)

Hmmmm, a gf with a lack of tolerance for your "hobby" (read obsession)?  Maybe she would prefer you crawling around bars?  Not a good situation.....

No you wouldn't - victory would feel too cheap. I ran into the KB with 20 CAP fighters and no strike aircraft, and the feeling of victory was very empty.
