I stopped playing because tier X was non existent. Has anything changed?

 

And lower tiers it would put me in matches on my own vs 3 or more people.

Things have changed a lot. Due to the low population, WG added bots to fill-in for humans. Even if there are only 2 humans in queue with tier 10s, you won't have smaller than a 10 vs 10 battle (1 human + 9 bots per team).

While the bots aren't the human players we would like to have, they have helped make the game playable again. The high tiers are fairly active and queue times for any tier are generally <2 min but often <1min when enough people are online.

It's worth giving it another try if you haven't played since the 1v1 & 3v3 days.

 

Hope to see you in the skies!

:honoring:

I may give it another go, I did enjoy this game tons and the community was great. It's a shame to see the pop like this. All they have to do is plop this gAme on steam and it would probably resolve itself.

well back then, I think matchmaking was tied to your rating. So when I went IV and below is was always by myself. And I wasn't even that good lol... in fact I don't even know what my stats are.

 

Now bots aren't ideal but at least I'll be able to get matches, maybe it's time to reinstall.

If you have never stuck your head up your assssssssssss, It is hard to get it out.  This is WG problem right now.

Now we know where they got the idea to call the new crew skills "special"

Matches are 10x10, wait time is very low, and you usually get 2-3 humans per team, up to 7 per team in lower tiers most nights.

 

Downside? Bots. You'll have to get used to them, learn their behaviors and patterns.

 

Welcome back, we need every human pilot we can get!

I suggest you don't learn it, because when you do the game becomes super boring and easy. I wish I was bad so I'd still have fun in this game.

If you need challenges Gang you should set goals like "Im gonna see how fast I can shoot down 100 humans!" :D

Been flying the Gutless a bit.

Not bad, need to work on tactics, but it seems to work if I treat it like an F-105 or a guns only F-4.

 


DICTA BOELCKE for WoWP
    1. Try to secure the upper hand before attacking.
    2. Always continue with an attack you have begun
    3. Open fire only at close range, and then only when the opponent is squarely in your sights
    4. You should always try to keep your eye on your opponent, and never let yourself be deceived by ruses
    5. In any type of attack, it is essential to assail your opponent from behind
    6. If your opponent dives on you, do not try run away from his attack, but fly to meet it
    7. When over the enemy's lines, always remember your own line of retreat
    8. It is better to attack in groups of four or six. Avoid two aircraft attacking the same opponent
