I noticed there is no tier spread and MM is trying to hard to balance once again. I do understand and consider the majority of planes used are German attacks thus leading to longer wait times. However, it is clear that the main issue of MM is the same as 1.6. No tier spread and trying to balance too hard. 

I really really hope this will not be like that once 1.7 goes live. We love the MM that we have now , going back to this would be very disappointing.

Do you really not understand the basics here? This is the CT. It isn't an NA-only test. Of course they're going to use the MM they use on the servers with decent population, not the one they slapped together for the ghetto NA server.

  • Laser beam tracers are silly.
  • Bullet impact animations on planes are cartoonish looking. (Edit: Actually, they look cool from your cockpit when you hit an enemy, but look dumb in spectator view on another plane)
  • AA range did not need to be increased.
  • The new crash/death animations are nice

I couldn't log onto WOWP 1.7 server. It comes back with wrong username/password after a brief login attempt. Username/password work on WOWP 1.6.5  and WOT 9.5. Did removal and clean install per https://na.wargaming.net/support/Knowledgebase/Article/View/364/19/world-of-warplanes-17-public-test-crashes-when-launched just to make sure. Nojoy. I still can't logon. NA player only. Did not get Connection Interrupted.

It seems like we're going back to long wait times to get into a match. There's a lot of people in the que, but the matches are taking a long time to put together, being passed over and waiting is like we've taken a step backwards

As pointed out earlier, the Common Test is common to all regions and did not get the NA-specific MM that was implemented recently on our server.

I only got a couple of matches in this afternoon but with just under 500 online and the expected bum rush on the German GAs I found the MM surprisingly fast. With the tier 3 FW-189 I got two tier tier 4 matches in under a minute with about 20 players in 3 & 4. Whatever they did to the MM works even with low numbers playing. Maybe our, the NA player base, tantrum did some good. Remember folks this is their MM, I still prefer our wild westmatch making.

Why am I starting out in tier one ? I thought it was suppose to be a mirror account of our regular account of what we had purchased last month ? What did I do wrong ? Its as if I am a new Player.

LOVING THE SOUNDS, new bullets look good with maxed settings. As far as how the new planes fly... I cannot tell you, my ping is over 500 in some cases and makes even hitting ground targets a challenge. wish the server was closer to us for NA testing... I'm sure the Russians are laughing at our "skill" as we shoot just short of there plane.

 

Wish there was a better description of the tester reward system: 

Achievements

We've added special awards for Public Test participants. They have 10 ranks: Participant, Specialist (3 ranks, bronze), Expert (3 ranks, silver) and Master (3 ranks, gold).

Each rank is awarded for completing a minimum set of combat missions on the Public Test of any further update of World of Warplanes, starting with 1.7.0. Upon receipt of each subsequent ran,k the award in the profile will be replaced with a new one.

Do you have an almost unused EU or RU account Using the same email? If you do that is it.

I like the improvements to sound quality. Can actually tell when I'm being fired at.

 

Agree with above, the OMGSPARKLY on the planes when you hit them seems silly. 

 

I need to fly some more and probably fly in planes that I'm used to, but I didn't notice anything different with the flight mechanics with this new game engine upgrade.

Sounds :great:

 

I am having a difficult time flying/controlling my A/C and aiming.  Plane is real "bouncy" and also notice it when spectating other players - their plane looks like it's wobbling all over the place.  Any way to configure this away?

Have been getting into 1v1s 2v2s mostly (and getting royally pwned - lol), frequently waiting 4-6 minutes to get into battle (tiers 5 & 6) with a LF, so can't give much feedback yet.

 

Hope the control issue can be addressed. Anybody?

No, I used a different email and even a slightly different name for my EU account just to be safe. As far as I know there is no fix although it might be possible for support to help. Someone that has dealt with this would be more likely to be of help.

  • Love the new sounds!
  • Having a great deal of difficulty with the view ranges of 4000 Meters max for planes and GTs. This I see is going to be a problem for everyone. I would recommend increasing the max ranges viewable for all types to at least double the present maximum. If it is graphics optimization (Big World Engine) related, then maybe allow those with high end GPUs the option to double these ranges in graphics settings. 
  • The new German GAA are a lot of fun and unique. Thank you for those! I would highly recommend the addition of rockets (and bombs to those that do not have them) to all German GAA for self defense v ILs.
  • The planes do fly a little bit 'jittery' now. Not sure what causes this. Might want to look into that.

After battle report/crew member promotion bug?  A couple of times I've noticed that the battle report does not show up in the hangar and is not available in the Notifications list. Can only say for certain that on this last occasion it corresponded with a crew member promotion right after the battle and I clicked the Go to Profile button on that pop up. After selecting a new skill and returning to hangar, there is no way to view the battle report.

Wealth of Common Test mission bug, or did it reset?  In my mission details, it says I have 0 completions, and 3/10 wins.  However, going back through my Notifications, at one point I had 7/10 wins... *scratches head*  :unsure:

I am not thrilled with the fact that the volume settings for the sounds aren't very adjustable.  With the settings on 1 (lowest setting), the plane sounds are still so loud I cannot hear people on voice chat or Teamspeak. The only setting below that is NO sound. Hmmm.....so I have to make a choice; do I want to hear the plane, or other players?

I'm always serious (with days off).

I would agree that more adjustability is needed for sounds. My fix is to go into the windows sound mixer and turn WoWP down to 50% of Teamspeak.
