I play when I'm bored.... It is incredibly addictive, however I'm not addicted like some of my friends are. But man, It's a FUN GAME!

Plus it works on Linux, unlike the Sims 2. I'm closer to being addicted to that one, though. :oops:

When i started playing bzf i liked the game because of the many different maps and because it was/is for free^^
But from the time on i started playing in the GU league the most important thing to me is the comunity :D

Yes monster,you told me about it before,you said how you hate 1 vs 1 because you can't jump,so then it would be like gu,and how you hate ducati because there is no richochet,but if you add richochet it's like 1 vs 1 and with your logic gu,so you basically want all of bzflag to be gu.. :?

Hmm,oh i think i put in ducati where i was supposed to put 1 vs 1 and put 1 vs 1 in where i was supposed to put in ducati,heh sorry about that...

Oh and the reason i play is because,like all of you people,im addicted,especially to all of the leagues :D

If I may beg to differ, leagues are keeping together the last remnants of the really good players from the last few years, and are the best ways to get better at dodging and precision shooting fast. The coordinated teamwork that league play requires is an extremely fun and rewarding experience. I believe there are many league players who will back me up on this, so I'm not a lone voice here.

I searched Google for "free online multiplayer ww2 flight sim", because I used to play 'Air Attack' a lot before it went gay and commercial, so wanted to see if there was anything else out there.

For some reason BZFlag was on the first few pages, not sure how Google got tanks from ww2 flight sim.. I guess the connection is there, kinda... ww2 (tanks).. flight sim (wings... flying tanks)... :lol-old:

I downloaded it, played it for 5 minutes, the first server I joined was Planet Mofo.. I was getting killed as soon as I spawned and I thought........ this is the most fun I've had on a computer game in my life !!!!!!!! :lol-old:

Quite embarrased to say this, but tonight has been my second night playing Bzflag, but I played it for 12 hours.. and the other night i played it for................ 16 hours :oops: straight, no kidding :oops:

So yes, now I play it because I'm a tiny wee little bit addicted!

I play for the same reason as everyone else, I'm a addicted. I can't help it, I go out side to do something, lose reality, and later find myself on my computer. Tell everyone about about this game!!! :|

More than likely there is a species out there that can naturally detect radio. I can only imagine that they are quite annoyed by us.

I play, get off, return to my life and then once again I find myself playing this great game (This cycle continues and continues). I am also addicted like most people (most likely forever) and if I'm not using the computer to play Bzflag I'm probably making a map for it *cough*(in my spare time of course) *cough* :wink:

There's a good community and fun things to talk about. It's cool to talk to your friends while you're shooting at them.
