The UFOs are VERY easy to kill, or be killed in....its good for a laugh, but I hope people aren't thinking of running these into battle all night.
 

I can appreciate the joke in all this, and it is cute - but it appears a lot of work went into the creation of these UFO's (even a download patch required).  Considering we haven't had any content update for 90 days, and the game is suffering cause of that, this feels a bit too much like ordering the band to play music on the deck aboard the Titanic as it sank type of thing.

 

You guys got this review from arguably the biggest youtube Wargaming celeb.  Not good.

You didn't know?

 

There were "rumors" that Germany were building "saucer" craft in WW2.  The model that WoP depicts is the supposed "Haunebu-type" Saucer.  Its still a rumor/unknown and most likely early misinformation created by the Allies (or some nation) following WW2.  Supposedly the earliest claims were by articles/newspapers in early 1950-ish.  The notion of it has stuck to popular culture ever since.

 

However, there were real events with actual "UFO" type things in WW2 where pilots from all nations reporting unusual craft or "foo fighters" that would fly up to their formations, fly erratically/defy physics, before 1950 during the war (there are recorded accounts between 1941-1944).  At the time every Nation thought it was each others nations "secret weapon" but it occurred in mostly every theater.  You can find accounts of pilots that have talked about it.

I must have missed something, cause I didn't see any actual content added.  I saw some bugs fixed, and some maps that existed previously that had to be suspended reintroduced - but nothing "new" in maps/planes/game modes.  Showing us stats at the end of the game was nice, but I would call that more a feature than content.

The missions system was new, ditto for the replay feature and post-battle stats. Rest assured, additional content are under development/testing and will be released in the future. You can't expect to experience everything the game has to offer at day one, it's a constantly growing franchise after all.

 

For comparison's sake, WoT currently follows a bimonthly patch schedule for major updates. It's not a long shot to assume WoWP also follows a similar schedule.

The saucer shows in my hangar, but when I press battle all I get is a black screen and what sounds like explosions until the battle ends.
"It is difficult to soar with eagles when surrounded by turkeys."
A hanger is a device upon which one hangs an article of clothing in a closet.

Let's make this a yearly occurrence...wait, it will kick out other ideas for next April Fool...

WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

Wow, Jingles really slammed WoWp. And, like, Jingles. Now some of his comments were a little off, I haven't seen any crayon like graphics, and I haven't played enough War Thunder to notice and compare my frame rates, but in some ways I agree. I believe War Thunder has a better control system and better graphics (in general).

And yes, I've heard Wargaming's rationale to setting up the control system the way they did - and in some ways I agree with them, but I still believe there's lots of room for improvement.

I had a lot of respect for jingles evaluations when i was playing wot.  He even sold me in trying the fcm50t.  However,  he is really just a hater when it comes to wowp and he's lost credibility in my eyes for that.  One of his early wowp hates was of a beta version and he released his evaluation vid in violation of the NDA.  The game now looks distractingly great at max graphics.  The current sounds aren't the best, but are good except for some conflicts of far sounds overpowering near sound sources resulting in popping or crackling. 

 

Wowp is still very much in a late beta stage, developmentally and it could be a great game if the devs quit fiddling with stuff that's fine and polish the main bits that need help.

 

At this point, I'm not a wowp fanboy, but jingles' review is off the mark.   The Sleipnir is a hoot and a fun event.
