Hey,

the information at the matrixshop calls the AE standalone addon but I am a little confused. Are War in the Pacific and the AE different games or is the AE the maingame with new features?

Do I need both games to play all the content or is the AE the complete game and I need only this editon?

AE is a complete game. WitP is more or less the 'old version' of the same content.

And with 80 bugs it is the better version, right?

AE is the bigger more buffed step-brother

AE is gender fluid.


Call it the Supreme Ruler. Gender fluids sounds gross.

Lawyers like to say that the law is a jealous mistress.

Lawyers who play AE know that AE is the real mistress - alluring, enticing, beautiful beyond comprehension, demanding time and attention and petting beyond our ability to satisfy.

I can attest and affirm that long-term play of WiTP:AE *is* a trial. And a tribulation.

Never having played WITP, my understanding is that WITP is the AC-47 while WITP-AE is the AC-130.

Only buy it if you want to be consumed with an addiction that will drive you crazy. Even playing solo.

I would have said Cadillac {WITP} and Rolls Royce {AE}.

You are referring to comfortable rides. I was referring to awesome firepower putting the hurt on your enemies . . .

Would you want just a comfortable ride or one with lots of firepower?

Of course I would want both, but there is a reason why the people riding in tanks are known as Dumb A$$ Tankers.

Driving with the antenna up while crossing German railroad tracks with the overhead electric wires for the train resulting in the explosive charge in just one of the 63 combat rounds loaded on the tank to explode. Firing the main gun with a live combat round in the unit's motor pool. Firing the main gun with 2 feet of packed dirt in the end of the tube resulting in a 105 mm steel orchid. Driving an M-1 tank into a water puddle, when the water quit rising it was halfway up the inside of the turret. Driving an M-1 tank along the side of a hill so the tracks came off it. It only took three days to fix that. Mistaking an APC used on the range to maintain the targets as a moving target and putting 50 caliber bullets through it - with the crew on board.

Yet another lawyer here. I have spent more time on a single game of AE than on any case/trial ever, period. And it has hurt me more at times as well.
