So that's it. Keep posting, people! ;)

Other than that, i second Unstung's idea.

And yes, ACX is a proper AC.

Why not a forum for PSP Ace Combat games (with ACX and ACX2 as sub-forums) and PS2 Ace Combat games (put the AC4, AC5, AC0 forums in there)? It saves room. After all, we have a GT forum and Forza forum buried in the Racing Simulator sub-forum, and Call of Duty in the FPS one.
The other Ace Combat portable games (Xi and Advance) are really too insignificant for their own forums, or to be noted for that matter. On the other hand, ACX is a "proper," "real" Ace Combat game with the typical story, missions, and gameplay.
Since many people here don't hang around ACS for just Ace Combat, the section can be cut down to four sub-forums: Current-Gen Installments (6 and AH), PSP Installments (X and X2), PS2 Installments (AC4-AC0), and the other in the "Ace Combat Series."

IT'S JUST TOO MUCH ACE COMBAT MAN!!! LOL

I agree.

I disagree, Bean. ACX is a full-fledged AC which earned it's rightful spot amongst the best in the series.
Furthermore, the PSP isn't far from the PS2's quality. And even if it was largely inferior, it all comes down to the game. The reason why ACA isn't usually mentioned is because of the low quality of the game, not the GBA. If it was one of the best games in that console, I'm pretty sure it would get much more attention.

By your standard, Peace Walker isn't a "proper" Metal Gear.
(PS: it is)

This is just what people are saying about ACX.


I have a bone in my leg. Therefore, your argument is invalid. ;)

Yes. Come on, it had not one, but TWO tunnel missions. That's what makes ACX an Ace Combat. You mods are outnumbered, just face it.

Oh wow. You wanna put this on the basis that there are as many ACX players as there are moderators?

Not only is that ridiculous, but I think you'd still lose. :lol:

If this is an Ace Combat forum, then I think that every damned single title should have a folder.

Perhaps then we can group them together. All the PS titles all the PS2 titles all the XBox titles, all the handhelds......

Panda? What do you think? ;)

Of course it does.

Now run along to your subforum.

Spoiler

You know well it's not just about the activity...
Still, It's not that surprising: atm JA is cannibalizing all the attention.

Side note: I'm happy as it is now and have no objections. All drama could have been avoided if it wasn't for the temporary disappearance, but what's done is done.

JA is new. ACX is old. Simple as that. AH is stealing the hype from Joint Assault as well.

The JA forum is pretty inactive considering it's a new game. JA isn't so well-received with mediocre ratings and not many members buying or are interested in it. That's the main reason why, I believe. Also, the forum would die surprisingly soon. (This is why we need to divide it into subforums instead of shoving every inactive forum into the "Ace Combat Series.") The Assault Horizon forum, which is for a game that is many months away from release, has much more attention. Nobody knows whether the game would be good or bad yet, and still have hopes. If it's a flop, that forum would go too.

You know what I mean by "complete," AJ. Skies of Incursion isn't on a real console, isn't a full-fledged installment (more like some unworthy sequel to ACX), and lacks the depth of the other games. As for the PSX folders, 1. they're each over and decade old on outdated consoles and 2. this forum (AC.net) was created years after those games in anticipation of Ace Combat 5. The amount of AC1/2/3 players is now only a limited group of fanboys which this forum doesn't consist of a sufficient number of.

And as for saying that "ACX is old:" The PS2 games are older and you just suggested to create forums for the ancient PSX games. It's lack of activity in the forum which JA will soon encounter, see first paragraph.

New titles will probably always be given precedence, but after awhile, possibly JA and ACX can be re-united in a 'Handheld Platform Ace Combat' topic, eh? ;)



I agree with that but all four handheld games could be listed in the topic description so their is no confusion

Something a bit off topic. I've just hit 500 posts mark and I'd like to have something of my own instead of "Ace" as Custom Member Tittle but I can't change it in my Control Panel. What gives? Did you Mod guys make some changes that I don't know of?
