:sad: I came on just a little while ago and found the update.  It downloaded and I went to the 2nd page to see what had changed.  On the "here" I pressed it and got a new page that seemed to be overlaid with the World of War Planes symbol spinning.  It stayed that way for over 5 minutes with nothing happening.  Now, I have had no explanation as to the different changes and losses from the Closed Beta.  I Lost 4 planes (3 level 5 and 1 level 6) plus I lost the tolkins (points) for the earned $ type, as well as the exchange tolkens (points, over 1,000,000) and the experience tolkins for those planes I had individually.  There is some kind of explanation that is required as to what happened.  I am not a happy camper about the whole thing.  I want to know that information that I have been denied! :angry:

I was wondering, all my sorties were reset to zero. Will the 900 I had count toward to 700 goal flights or do I have to start over? I don't even know if this is where this statement goes but I'd hate to see all my hard work flushed.

It's odd, I cannot access the portal even after clearing my browser cache. Seriously, I don't want to update my one year old client D:

The portal is likely still going to be down for extended maintenance, such is the way of things.

Nice to see this game getting forward and off the ground, though.

As far as I've seen and know, it's across all testing phases up until release. Closed beta, open beta, and even the alpha are included.

I am very disappointed I had over 3000 in gold and over 2 mil in credits and 7 airplanes with the lowest tier being a 5 and up to tier 8 and all I got is 1100 tokens this is ridiculous I have devoted a lot of time to this game and I feel like it was all for nothing talk about a smack in the face

Don´t worry.....When the final release comes you will get NOTHING, save if you have played +700 battles, 2 premium planes.

As I responded to your other post (which said the same thing), had you been checking the portal or the forums for the last month you'd have known that Open Beta was coming today, and that they'd be wiping all progress to date.  Just in case you decide to fail to check all of the abovelisted sources again, at some point in the future, they're going to release the game from beta and you'll lose everything again.

Everyone was wiped for open beta. A large majority of players had every plane in the game and there all gone now. So now we start the grind again. Welcome to the club.

Hey Josh,
Soft and Hard wipes are standard practice for transitioning between testing phases. I know that the details of the wipe were available far in advance and I am sorry to hear that this has caught you by surprise. The purpose of the testing phases is not to progress in an unfinished product, but rather to help provide valuable feedback that will aid in the improvement and direction of the game's development. The time you devoted was not in vain, it was to participate in the co-creation of your gaming experience. There will likely be another hard wipe prior to release. I hope you see the value in continuing to test and provide your feedback and insights knowing that your tech tree progress will probably be wiped again.

Everything has been wiped... except your battle counts and achievements and stuff.

There is another recent thread on here that has a bunch of people with the same problem.  :sad:

That's stage 2 of the Open Beta.
