You can't gift poo poo that was purchased with credits anymore. It used to be that you could melt a ship, buy a new one, and sell it via gifting. Then early-mid last year that changed, so you can only gift something purchased with cash once. After a melt, or after it has been gifted a single time, it's account locked. That's when I essentially stopped trading - I used to purchase/sell credits which is no longer possible.

Well, it's mostly true, but a loop hole has been discovered, so it's not entirely accurate any longer (or until they change it).

You can buy an Aurora MR with a credit card. (It's giftable). You then CCU it all the way up to a Hornet Tracker using store credits.
Because the original ship was giftable, the whole ship is - even though store credits were used.

If this guy is smart (which he has proven he is not), he will follow that process to get that Idris and the useless 890 Jump off his ship at a 80% loss, then sell the Idris account to recoup what he lost and at least somewhat break even.

Yeah, there probably will be another surge in interest when the FPS module hits in March(ish). Definitely when multi-crew happens (if it doesn't blow).

Hell, possibly when co-op gets fixed and earning creds is a thing in this next patch

Considering War Thunder is the only sim out there I know of that manages to be both (semi) realistic AND fun (minus the grindy parts), that is a good sign.

Good balance between nerdy details and a solid "feel" for your plane there. Something I tend to miss in AC so far, where it feels like only half of my ships movements are my input, and the other half is just random wobbling.
So the more they steal from WT, the better imho

If you thought Chris Robert's games were ambitious and buggy, you never played Battlecruiser 3000AD. Which, all things considered, was a wise choise since that "game" was a terrible, terrible crock of poo poo.

While we're bringing up other games, I recently read about an upcoming indie game that seemed very interesting but can't remember the name, object of the game was basically that you could dock/board other ships with your little raider ship and then from an iso perspective complete certain tasks like killing the commander or disabling engines etc.
Anyone here help me out with the game title? Wanted to keep an eye on that.. I thought I read about it on RPS..
