We want play A&A. Most of us bought physical versions (some of us had to import it because WOTC thinks worlds end after USA and UK)

We usually cannot find many players to play face to face

So we need play by internet

And we need some sort of program that allow us doing it without having the board in front of us

Hasbro not developed a proper program to do this in all this years. The old CD was buggy, has not revised or AA50 and anyway you cannot buy today in stores

TripleA is an altruist non-profit program that allows playing by internet AND gives FREE marketing for A&A products

Unless Hasbro develops a proper program that basically does the same as TripleA, Hasbro should stop damaging its customers. Because this move is only that: a unnecesary damage to customers, one that not gives any advantage to Hasbro. In fact, it damages Hasbro also, because almost none fan costumer will buy the "new" AA42 game after this damaging move. This game should be developed worlwide in stores or you will see that non anglosaxons costumers will continue playing TripleA (that will be their only option)

Until that happens, you can guess that the unnecesary damaged ones here, customers, will continue complaining

LMAO @ everyone in this thread getting upset because Hasbro is protecting it's intellectual rights.  I guess everyone wants to look out for their own interests, but in reality, the people in the wrong here are the developers of TripleA.  Whether the game has helped or hurt Hasbro's business, and regardless of whether or not the developers have tried to profit from the game, they have stolen from Hasbro.

Hasbro has the right to protect/control its interests and everyone should stop being so selfish and realize the full picture.  Clearly, Hasbro would like to create a revenue stream through things like a facebook application, and Hasbro should have that right.  The developers of TripleA can make a similiar game if they want, but to directly rip of Axis & Allies is completely bogus.

Funnily enough all TripleA has to do is change some names and map design and suddenly Hasbro has nothing to protect.  Which is what is happening as we speak.  Please don't get all huffy that a small team of dedicated enthusiasts is putting a large buisness to shame as far as product quality goes.

Your assuming they are not chimps? Since they are chimps how can they be upset? They certainly are not upset about not lifting a finger to market their AA products. Certainly not upset about the rubbish manner they conduct business. These are the things they should be worried about.

I will send them more bananas to placate them. Chimps go wild over such things.

Well, we didn't evolve from chimps, but had a common ancestor, and in my opinion chimps got the better end of evolution than we. Just look at it: to make them happy just throw the chimps some bananas, in our case we need television and internet and living in crowded cities and gasoline prices and laws and a bunch of other things. While chimps just stand on the tree branch doing nothing and when they are hungry just stretch their arms to get a banana or something.
Hmmm...now that I think of it Wotc and Hasbro aren't much different from chimps: just release their products and wait at their offices for the money... and if someone is also taking bananas from the tree, get a rock and throw at the trespassers.

Oh well, I guess we never ceased to be monkeys after all. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a15KgyXBX24
Overdue +1 karma for you. grin

I did indeed.  But I can't take credit for anything at all, I am not the dev, just a bum on this forum.

Also, in response to some questions about TripleA and it being "unstable" and so on:

TripleA 1.1.1.0 has just been released.
It is a fully legal version.
It is considered "unstable" but to be honest this is the most stable version I have ever played.  Never had a bug with 1.1.1.0, not seen any in any of the game's I've played. 

It has a working lobby, meaning working multiplayer.

Lastly, it is also much more user friendly than previous versions.  It includes a map downloading feature inside the main interface.  It is also very easy to develop your own maps and artwork for.

So for the love of god, or war-games in general, you have to go try out this new release.

Heya, I am hosting the TripleA Supply Depot

http://sites.google.com/site/tripleaerniebommel/
.

TripleA is available there, together with a 3-steps beginners guide (Installation, Starting a game, Adding more Maps).

I am not aware of any infringements here. No protected logos or names are used. Surely, I am thankful towards Larry Harris for creating Axis&Allies, without which - no doubt - there would not be TripleA. Nevertheless, TripleA is a computer game. Playing a live boardgame with friends is similar to, but still very different to playing a computer game. I can only recommend the board game. Live sessions are awesome. As is driving a real Ferrari compared to driving one in some Computer game. I doubt a computer game has to pay license fees to Ferrari, as long as it does not use the protected logos.
And dont anyone care to lecture me on the differences between a car and a game. Might be surprising to some, but I am aware of them... Wink

Anyone aware how it is almost impossible to protect a mathematical algorithm? Talk about Intellectual Property there.

Regards,
EB

TripleA is a fantastic program, and I've had more games this week of Classic 2nd Edition than I have had in my entire gaming life!

I was dismayed when it was closed down by those squalid obtuse mediocrities at WOTC, but am so glad that it's working again. I've been using it to introduce my girlfriend to AA2E, and we'll be having a game on the actual board later this afternoon  grin

I may something crazy here, but playing and finishing a 12 hour game is something I actually only enjoy off-line.. Nothing beats an all-nighter. Sure the wives don't like it, but they'll come to terms with it, you'll see

Nevertheless I agree on all remarks that shutting tripleA down is poor costumer management, as well as unnecessary from a sales point of view. (I even think that most TripleA-players not only have avg 3,5 AA boards at home, they'll probably also have the hasbro cd-rom, which was a perversion of AA in my humble opinion - enough reason to assume an implied license I say)

juh!
 grin



WHAT. THE. F*CK.  Can we still play networked games on this thing with the latest client?  Cause I don't think they can shut down that.

Seriously?  HASBRO???  They made ONE super sh*tty AA CD-ROM game like 10 years ago and are shutting down ALL of TripleA because of it?  I cry bullsh*t.  AA50 is Avalon Games anyway, is the unstable AA50 client gonna be able to work???

There's like maybe 50 people online on TripleA at any given time, anyways!  Holy sh*t!  Like these people would be playing a game at home!  The ONLY way you're going to be playing (and finishing!) a 12 hour Axis and Allies game is ONLINE!  

Where's a link to a petition or something?  This is ridiculous, as there are MANY of the games available on the TripleA client that Hasbro has NO rights too!  I could see them trying to get Classic or Revised taken out but the whole client is just FOOLISH.

Hell, how am I gonna participate in the ladder now, wanted to play matches over TripleA...

Edit:  BTW, may I add I have CLASSIC, REVISED, AND AA50 SITTING IN MY CLOSET AT HOME.  GATHERING DUST.  TRIPLEA WAS THE EASIEST WAY TO FIND OPPONENTS AND GAMES.  THANKS A LOT HASBRO.  NEVER BUYING ONE OF YOUR PRODUCTS AGAIN.
