Crew assignment options are welcome, and is evidence that once in a while, perhaps, the developers are listening.

On the other hand, if it could be done now, why could it not been done a year ago?

These small things can add up to either make or break a title.

 

The female crews seemed at first to be all pluses, but some of the posts above give me concern about breaking game balance.

 

All in all, a worthy patch, but it has some stiff competition from WoT 9.17.1

like the ease of crew movement. Wish it hadn't taken 3 years to get done, but like it!

Clans with any nuts actually participate.  I will admit they are few and far between.

 

This is all that needs to be said.  Some people want to compete, some people want to fight bots.

 

Thanks for being part of the competition.

Quick Crew changing is very much welcome, even if it is as much overdue.

 

As for female crews...I don't think they will exist in such number to shatter completely game balance, and they cannot be everywhere at once. I had tried Russian and American...outside of the Russian being able to fry every yellow targets at a rapid rate, nothing seem gamebreaking for these two...hell, the American has the least impact on balance, giving like 2-3 sec (10% of 20 and 30 respectively) extra boost time and Ordnance Raptor Strike, while giving some pretty heavy-duty damage as early as tier 5 or 6 (8700 (4350x2) damage with 500lb bomb, for example), is very situational as you need quite a distant to build up the speed at the right angle and at the same time not lawndart...and would you load US planes with ordnance just to pound ground outside of specific mission conditions?



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...

Add some female pilots to make some dollars, fine I get it but give an already overpowered line an extra 20% damage, chance of fire & chance of crits, WTH were you thinking Wargaming?

If you want to make money just add some female pilots wearing bikinis available for purchase only & call it a day.

The head on attack skill doesnt work as well as people think.  As soon as the enemy veers off in any direction (even slightly) the skill is disabled.  Most of the time it gets disabled before you are even in range.  The only time I have seen it work is when someone really wants to go head on with you, and they get into a game of chicken... at that point, they deserve to die anyway.  It does work against bot HF... but it is almost never a good idea to go head to head with a bot HF.

 

I think people were expecting this skill to work when you are stalling planes, but as the plane stalls, it noses down, which means it is no longer head to head and the skill is disabled again.

There is still no shortage of players that like to head on with a heavy be it another heavy or multi-role trying to score a rocket kill. There is even boobs in light fighters that do it almost like a moth will fly straight into a bug zapper.

Maybe it will be a good teaching tool for not going head to head.

Sadly the only teaching tools that would work were deemed as archaic & barbaric & outlawed a long time ago.

My Thoughts:

  • Chicks for pilots - Love it, they have been playing the game for a long time as well and deserve it.
  • Pilot quick switch - Been waiting for that one for a while and it works.
  • Version 1.9.8.0 to 1.9.9.0 - Great, getting closer to Version 2.0.0.0 for clan wars. :sceptic: giggle
  • Custom skills - I wish we could get them on more pilots, or at least soon.

Have you tried manually updating your drivers.

I have to do it every single patch.

How do you close the stupid female pilots pop-up that appears immediately upon logging on?  Is there any way to block this pop-up permanently?

Select one and forget about them if you don't want to use them?

 

Free stuff is free...getting pilot skill points up is *tough*.
