joystick wise I don't see a difference at all , same sluggish behavior with high pings.

so sorry guys that are looking for this client side prediction to work .. so far super placebo effect.

 

That was a fun battle ditty , didn't realize how fun that F94 was lol

Welp, its official, they hinted at strongholds in 1.7, we have 1.8, and No Strongholds.

Wow, my NA, EU, and RU accounts are still using the same email, but my NA account is coming up on the CT now.  So they were able to trigger my NA account now I guess.

 

Also here the screenshot of all the planes I got stuff for:

 

 

Still takes time for the hangar to load, and I do not have near the planes most of you all have.

played, 

 

MM sucks lol go figure

no gas blah

client side prediction kinda works , game feels better at 150 , but as a player playing in the low 20's its nowhere the same. But a step in the right direction. still off. 

hangar loading = sucks more than ever!

2 man flights no impact for such low pop to start of with.

 

overall I don't see a change.

 

 

 

Roll feels snappier, turns feel weird.  Gunnery is still badly affected by lag so I don't quite see the point.

 

Hangar feels much laggier if anything.  Patch notes don't mention anything about hangar, so maybe that comes at another iteration.  Or next patch.  :(.

I have to say....for WG touting this as some "major" update, it sure doens't seem that way apart from things they are taking away from us.

 

I thought for sure a major update would have a new line at least.  Great, we can now buy tier 8 premiums for a game we don't know will survive......let me grab my horn so I can blow. :P

 

Tick/tock development cycle for WG.  Content one patch, engine changes the next.  New lines came in 1.1 (Fw), 1.3 (P-38), 1.5 (MiG), and 1.7 (DE GAA).

 

But yeah, a lot of stuff I was hoping would be fixed... isn't.  Reticle parallax problem is still there, dismiss pilot UI flaw is still there, hangar is still ridiculously laggy...

A deeper understanding of the difference between a fad and a fashion statement will enable you to win a fashion fueled guessing game.

Also it looks like Client Side prediction is optional.  In the game settings you can turn it on or off.

most likely, but I do notice a difference with it on, since in the past CTs I have had trouble lining up the shots because of the latency, now I do not have to anticipate as much.

Again, placebo you only feel like its easier because your plane is there to you. It's not actually there. Just like when you get shot at you will see the bullets aren't near you but you're taking damage. Turn it off you will see that you're lagging just as hard.

WOW

Chat is broken. You would think they would have that figured out by now considering it works in live.

 

Edit: Eleven people online and bot battles seem to be disabled. I refuse to wait for an hour!

I tried it. First, I flew a BOT battle which was fine. Then I hopped in queue... With online players numbering 15 I wasn't expecting much, but after only 6 minutes in queue I was rewarded with a 1v1. That means the CT server has our old MM still shared by the EU/RU communities. I much prefer the NA exclusive, 3v3 minimum, with our low population. Having a MM designed for big queues and full battles to try to micro-balance us into eternal wait times for 1v1 matches again would be a huge step backwards. We'll see if they take us into account when it goes live. Otherwise in my brief foray into 1.8, the only thing of note was all the anniversary/birthday fluff. I didn't notice an appreciable difference in flight controls with a joystick. No worries about flights with 1v1 battles.

:amazed:
