Thought I'd give an update from Beginner's World, per a recent encounter...
I managed to grow (precariously) my airline to >100 aircraft...some lessons learned along the way for sure. The airline was generating significant weekly profit and I amassed enough afford expansion to another base (I had not yet exhausted all routes at current, but do have nearly 70% share there, and the best ones are gone). There was a large airport that the single airline there was not taking full advantage of all the still open routes, growing very slowly, but must have a huge cash balance according to company value figures.
A number of airlines have been active in expanding their bases. So, I figured I'd better jump before anyone else takes the one (of four I had been eying). Pulled the trigger.
About a game week later, one of the biggest airlines adds a new, third, base in the same spot. And he seems to directly target routes by the first airline at that airport, and some of mine (I've been almost entirely focused on routes not run by the first, mostly all wide open ones to max profit).
Ok, all's fair in competition right?
Well, except for the fact that in the so called "Beginner's" World, the guy running this third arriving airline was registered on AWS back in 2010...hardly a beginner.
The aggressive guy referred to in my previous post was registered in mid-2012 - also enough time to be past the beginner stage (I'd expect).
I hope these guys feel good dominating in an "easy" world meant for true beginners and for "experimenting". They seem to savor the challenge in that.
You've gone fishing. Fine. I'll bite.
So...apart from the PM you've decided to slag me off publicly. Was it necessary? I wasn't exactly following what you were doing and I had no idea you were going for DTW. I was planning to open that new base as soon as my year was up since I opened the last one.
I'm not 'targeting' anything, I'm just doing what most people have been doing and that is going down the route planning list.
Date registered doesn't mean anything. The last time I was really active was back in August 2011, which was...erm...almost 2 years ago? I need to get up to speed again.
Really, if you have any problem with Coutinho, PM me. Don't need to try and slag me off publicly when I've done nothing wrong.
We're all here to help one another, I'm not trying to force anyone out of anything if that's what you're thinking. People are willing to help if you're willing to ask, just don't go around confronting everyone. No need for those sly digs either.
