Updating the client already. Lets see what the new features are, eh? :great:

 

After-battle statistics are something I really like, so looking forward to those at least.

 

So basics... View ranges are longer, fire chance and duration is up, and planes now are rated on altitude performance as well. Plus a whole bunch of fiddly balancing bits...

As fiddly as this patch might be I'm excited for it. Many changes are written down that I rather like. I just hope they work as well as it sounds.

Still no love for the Japanese line, it's like they just threw it in to 'make people happy', but thank God we got 4 Soviet lines...

Possible coming lines are american heavy and MiG line. So there will be no love of WG like 3-4 month :/.

 

Biased.

I'll be interested to see how the altitude adjustments of each plane plays out. Could be nice to see playing a fighter the way it was meant to be played pay out some dividends. 
 
Also like that concealment bonuses have been upped. Now I can sneakily bomb HQs more easily....*evil cackle*
 
And hopefully the new fire hit detection won't turn every plane into a roman candle. Might be time to finally invest in some self-sealing fuel tanks...

I couldn't care less about another Japanese line, however, everyone that flies them has the same thought "Please give them more armor"

Test server runs off of your WoWP account. Just download and log in.

I'm especially happy with this:

 

Public test notes

Economics

•    Players are now always fully rewarded with credits and experience points for destroyed enemy planes. The reward is calculated by taking into account the total amount of hit points remaining at the moment immediately before the plane is destroyed. In particular, it will increase the reward for shooting down an enemy plane by critically damaging its wings or tail or when it crashes after a player's attack.

•   The experience points reward for shooting down or damaging an enemy aircraft of a higher or lower tier was modified. The reward for shooting down or causing damage to a plane of a lower tier was reduced, and increased for doing the same to a plane of a higher tier.

 

Much easier to farm XP and credits off of high tier planes trying to turn fight against lower tier planes.


Everything tastes better if it tries to eat you before you eat it

I named my airplane Iosef because it kept on Stalin

The answers to many of our questions are usually already answered.  Reading is fun, try it sometime.  Link in the OP "Full news text" 

 

 

Your test account will be a copy of your play account as it was on February 9, 2014. This means that all planes purchased or researched on your regular account by this date will also be available on your public test account from the start.

Any progress achieved on the test server will not carry over to your regular World of Warplanes account.

"The damage done by fighters and heavy fighters to ground targets was increased"

 

Confirmed for British Heavy HF->GA transformation. :trollface:

 

GG was fun Duetschland, I'll be firing rockets the ground!

 

"The optimum altitude for most fighters and heavy fighters was increased. The difference between high, medium and low-altitude levels was extended to emphasise the characteristics of individual planes"

 

And there goes all the funz I was having...

Disappointed with the lack of any attention to the IJN line.  Was this accidentally left out of the notes?
