I'm bit leery of buying german stuff cause the game for good reason or not always gimps german. Are there any guarantees american and russian planes arent going to come out with lasers and stuff cause I just want a good game as germans. Not a get justified lets get even session by loyal russian programmers. Look at wot E100 huge stand out boxy tank against tanks that have low profile and bigger guns. Jagtiger anyone against IS 3? I just want some consideration for gold spent in game that things will warrant getting german stuff. I know I may be wrong in saying this but as an experienced wot tank player I'm not gonna grind german line for a year then have an american plane one shot me. You know what I mean? Tell me something even if its a lie.

All of the nations have their pros and cons.  There are no guarantees, but I doubt that there's going to be a nerf of an entire nation's line of aircraft. It doesn't seem necessary.

 

If you take a look here, you'll see a pretty decent spread of aircraft: http://planes.noobmeter.com/tankStats/na

 

This isn't tanks.  Anybody can take you out easily if they outplay you.  You can kill at tier 5 plane pretty easily in a tier 3, it just take a bit longer -- bullets don't bounce off of airplanes. There are a few particular factors that can be somewhat dominant, particularly altitude and firepower, but these are the specific areas that German planes are strongest.  That said, don't expect to dominate just because you chose that line.  I'd play them all and get a feel for what you like and don't like.

 

A well played Zero or Yak can still kill a Me 262 or Fw 190 without too much trouble if the pilots don't play smart.


The is a signature.

Unless your a badazz flyer and/ or in a flight ( like a WoT 'toon ) , it won't matter what your flying. 'cause once you get uptier  the "hardcore"  WoWPers  will " take your lunch money " .

Unlike tanks, its the USSR planes that are a bit under performing and the German ones that are OP.  You may still get shot down by American planes though, since that is an excellent line as well.

 

Check that link Captain threw down, it pretty much tells it like it is.


Dreaming of better days.  When this game had full matches, fiery dogfights, and hope for the future.

I'm nodding my head because what you say is a good point.  They still seem to be making the Germans pay for WWII....LOL.  But I can say this - I bought into the bf-109 line tiers 4 - 6 and I really like the 109's a lot.  There is a 109 training video that WG recently posted on their newspage, and that video is very good.  If you haven't already, you may want to look that video over...

You know, German HFs are very well on the top of the food chain without question. The 190s are also on top of the food chain should you have good awareness. The 262 is even considered THE sealclubbing plane of the game.

 

Actually, the key sealclubbers are German 190s, HFs, and the P-51s. Don't tell me that this game is biased towards Russians, otherwise you'll sound like an idiot. Russian planes had problems competing since the altitude bands.

Stats from Alpha test:

 

 

German Bias!!! 11 out of the 20 planes on this chart are German, 6 are US planes and only 3 are Russian.

 

German planes are currently neck-to-neck with American planes for the best vehicles in the game. German planes have always been in a strong position in the game.

So, I just typed a really detailed, nice post and the stupid, terrible, bad, awful, evil IP.board forum software ate it.  Neither firefox or IE11 is working properly with the new forum software settings...they changed a few things in the last couple days.

 

In this game, germans are strong, unlike in wot.  The russian bias does not show up in this game, and pretty much hasn't in the year I've been involved in it.

Though there still need to be tweaks made here and there (a part of the 'balancing act' in any competitive game), for the most part each nation is viable and strong in their own right.

 

German aircraft, while certainly holding a top-spot in the heavy line at Tier VIII in the 262, are not omnipotent; the 109 series is an excellent fighter series that transitions from traditional 'boom and zoom' to more turn-and-burn fighting styles as you tier up. The Gustav is, so far, my favorite of the 109 series.


Fly me closer, I want to hit them with my sword!

The La-9 was stupid OP when I joined CBT and the La-5 was somewhat too good for a while. Aside from that, I don't think Russians really had an OP period.

The F2G was just as OP as the La-9, and for a longer period of time.

The win rate stats come from Overlord, the guy who used to be a dev for WoWp but now works with WoT: Blitz. Check his blog: http://overlord-wot.blogspot.ca/2012/08/wowp-german-bias.html

 

The La-9 and F2G thing, while I'm not 100% sure, happened during and after the NDA was removed.
