There won't be an article, we cannot use this particular plane at the moment. The marathon will be canceled asap.

I know and I'm very sorry :(

 

Let me get the situation with the IM Beaufighter straight. I'd like to start from the very beginning. The marathon was planned for July-August, still, it didn't become possible for a number of technical reasons. As soon as we got all needed things sorted out, the final date became clear: missions was supposed to start in the second half of October. Literally today. But they won't start. 

 

The reason is simple. While preparing the marathon, we decided to check once again if everything is fine in legal terms. And it turned out, that it is actually not fine —  the contract for Iron Maiden symbols and mascot usage has expired. There are certain difficulties with the contract extension due to circumstances beyond our control. This actually means that Eddie cannot be a tailgunner on our Beaufighter. 

 

What do we need to do? We need to change the aircraft and remove all references to the band, only after that we can reintroduce the plane as a premium or special aircraft. So, the Beaufighter will appear in your Hangars but a little bit later.

I had recorded progress at the first stage of this action of more than 60 downed planes. I believe that this should be compensated, as I was deliberately misled by the company Wargaming.

Thx for the feedback , Blindfold :great: . Too bad, the Iron Maiden theme was a nice add-on. We will wait for further developments, then.

Personally, I'm pleased an aircraft won't be disfigured with the daft symbols emanating from a silly metal group.

As a separate licensing deal, I shouldn't think that's affected — unfortunately.

Hey guys!

 

We could make a quick lashup, and instead of using the Rusty Lolita brand, we could come up with a non-marketing, free-ranging and anti-comsumerist alternatives. Here are some ideas Zen Monk absolutely gave me during a brain-storming session around a barrel of suspicious-tasting self-made absinthe:
1- Cannabis deregulation : "Fligh high", or "legalize and equalize", "get up, spec up, get high for your fights" slogans, with a big hemp leaf logo
2- Wildlife protection: "Seal's People Front of the Earth", or "Earth's Popular Front of Seals". "Killing seals your stupidity reveals"

3- Big Tech and society: "Pay your taxes, No premiums for the Masses", "Hide stats: No Piracy on Privacy"

4- Plutocracy, and inequality: "Pay to win, People loose" or "The People are always downtier", "Keep shooting gold: your doom is foretold", "one of those gold bullets has your name on it", "Don't blame matchmaking, life's your for the taking"

5- Climate change: "Bomber flygskam", "EF-131 make bombs rain, take the train", "I would rather cap a base with a bike than a SU-10"

6- Consumerism: ..wait no, I give up, WoWP and FTP games are so deeply rooted in the compulsive obsessive behaviour of buying and collecting that no slogan can save it

 

Those were just the ones I remember. There was a funny one with a donkey and a shovel, but I honnestly doubt we would not be censored if we wrote about it.
