That is correct bo, we pride ourselves on staying on topic on this thread. Now you Schumuck, do you have a war film quote to share with us or not? [;)][:D]

Well now that you asked warspite1 yes I do, [;)] it's Casablanca. "Why are you closing me down."[&:] Shocked, just shocked that there is gambling going on here. [:-] "Here are your winnings sir" [&o] thank you. What really annoys me is how did you know I was a Schumuck, have you been talking to my wife [:D]

I find the lack of faith [in a challenging AI] disturbing. [;)]

Seriously, the game needs to have AI and it will have AI and there will be much rejoycing when players finally get the game and it has even a halfway decent computer opponent. There's just no point in the naysayers continuing to waste their time naysaying. Are solo players simply going to give up when the German AI bombs Pearl Harbor? Hell No! [:D]

I don't care about the AI. Some mates and I have been getting together for a week a year since 1990 to play WiF. We'd like to do so electronically (as well!). I continue to monitor progress on these sites (since about 2006) and comment every two years or so. Mostly variations on the above theme. I will buy this damned game as soon as it comes out. AI or not. Preferably not.

Oh and to prove my credentials in schmuckery:

Great WWII war film. But perhaps obscure. Warspite?

Ah, well, for what it's worth... From one of my favourite movies:

"A lady who sets her heart upon a lad in uniform must prepare to change lovers pretty quickly, or her life will be but a sad one. This heart of Lischen's was like many a neighboring town and had been stormed and occupied several times..."

From the same movie:

"You are a liar! You are an impostor. You are a deserter. I suspected you this morning, and your lies and folly have confirmed this to me. You pretend to carry dispatches to a British general who has been dead these ten months. You say your uncle is the British Ambassador in Berlin, with the ridiculous name of O'Grady. Now, will you join and take the bounty that is on your head sir, or will you be given up?"

"I volunteer"

Interesting trivia: both actors involved in the above exchange appeared in another movie not unknown to these boards [:)]

I got one from a war movie (snicker) see if you can figure this one out:

"How can a man take a bowel movement with a hundred buffalo rifles a-pointin' at him?"

As someone who never plays PBEM games due to commitment issues I'm not concerned this game doesn't have an AI. Even if it had one I still wouldn't buy it. Reason being games this complex just don't have decent AI's. I'm not sure you'd sell more even if an AI was made.

The buyers for this are WiF boardgame players who want to play online with all the rules automated.

I guess count me as the person who will not buy without an AI. Only an AI has the patience to teach a complete noob the ins and outs.

I really thought this might be the game to finally get me into WiF, but without an AI I will have to stay away.
