Is this a new game mode? or is it just to test 8v8?

8vs8 is the "foundation" for Squadron Battles, if I am to understand what I have been reading.

I'm getting the same error message I get when the server is not up and running...

"A top World War II ace once said that fighter pilots fall into two broad categories: those who go out to kill and those who, secretly, desperately, know they are going to get killed - the hunters and the hunted."

Don't think it's up yet. Should be getting an update in the test client first, anyway, and I'm not getting it yet.

 

I'm up for it, in any case. I'm concerned about splitting the matchmaker even further with our active player base so low, but hey, new is new, I guess.

I would think adding clans would be what they would add 1st, but they would be a little harder then cutting back on the number in battles..

 

But that's just me...


For anyone that wants to get better you may want to read a post from Mr_R on the forums

Are they actually planning to implement squadron battles?  I'd seen a dev post a while back saying they would never add "tank company" style battles to WoWP as there were "balance issues".

Mine updated a couple of days ago, so I assumed that was for this test.  Maybe not though.

Perhaps, with this test, they will be looking a little more closely at those balance issues.

EU site says it doesn't start until 8am Central (6am Pacific, 9am Eastern) TOMORROW. Probably just a misprint.

 

A little clarification, WG?

I know just came out that way.  It didn't show up at all when I was composing the message.

No need, I loved the smaller battles in closed beta.
