"In the closed test server the way the shooting works was also modified. Primarily the aim assist was removed. This decision was made in order to focus the player on the enemy plane rather than the tiny circle in front of the the enemy. In order to accurately hit, the player must now monitor the enemy closely to anticipate it’s maneuvers, chose the right angle of approach and look at the way the tracers go. You also need to constantly adjust the the fire based on your tracers and where they are in relation to the enemy. In order to effectively engage the enemy aircraft it is necessary to adjust the fire and taking into account the flight direction and speed and to shoot at the point where the enemy is going to be when the bullets hit." 

 

 

I mean in all seriousness, is this really going to happen? :facepalm:

Well this looks interesting. Right now I have to aim at the edges of the circle to hit the plane using the assist, but now this is appearing to be more of a challenge. Have to start playing WT a little to get used to how it works. It looks like they are trying to get Wt players into the game.

I am soooo glad I don't have to wake up every morning to make an angry post on the forum of a game that almost nobody plays.

 

As for the OP, lets hope this does not come to the live server. I don't want to have to chase a plane until the game timer runs out, every game.

Remember that this is a TEST. folks.

A TEST for a new GAME MODE, not a new game.

This GAME MODE is about taking and holding territory, not about shooting down other planes.

That's all I can really say about it, but let's back off the panic pedal a little, save that for the Liberal reactionaries.

Panic? What panic, this is GREAT news!

 

I played WoWP half the time with the lead indicator turned off anyway. I also play a LOT of WT realistic battles without a lead indicator. This is going to give me a huge advantage.

I'm horribly wasted most of the time and I use Zen archery techniques to sometimes hit a plane or the ground.

if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

I don't want to hold territory I want to shoot planes.

If i wanted to hold territory I would play tanks.

What am I saying...tanks players don't give a rats but about holding the base for superiority wins either.

They leave the circle and go after every kill they can get.

 Bingo.....CPT's are not suppose to share info but they to their friends and in great detail. WG knew that would happen and should not be surprised. WT type of map and supremacy with respawn, no lead indicator, similar flight mechanics to what we have now. There you go in a nutshell.

Pretty much but even WT has a lead indicator. Like so many nerfs this will make those that already shoot really good that much better in comparison, I don't think they thought that part through.

I don't think this was really a test. They invited in a group of people to gush over how great it was and got burned

There is no NDA so they must have planned on the information to come out. I don't think they expected an almost universal disdain to this and now they are scrambling.

So, if WG is trying to emulate another game, which is available on the PS4.

Why should anyone continue to play WG ( not available on PS4 )  on computer ?

Sounds to me like no matter what WG does they will have a large problem gaining population.

Very true but if they would promote aka advertise it as the better arcade flyer they could grow it. The biggest problem we have is not enough players and getting back to pre release numbers would be a realistic initial goal.

Yeah, in their HORRIBLE arcade mode. The other two more populated modes do not have any such indicator.

Sounds Fn fantastic, actually aiming, and a real agenda, rather than mind numbing flat math bot slaughters, I'll take it. :great:

I don't like this simply because I can barely see the tracers in the current game as well as in the leaked test video.

it looks interesting, to say the least, I'd prefer to keep the lead indicator for a bit longer as I am rather rusty personally

well I've been upset with shooting since they made the change in CBT, so i like the idea of bullets going where you shoot. I still get angry at center line cannons firing off at impossible angles for RNG sake.

This change won't attract the fans of WT's Realistic & Simulator battles, those people want a sim. The people that play WT that we should be wooing are those that only play its horrible arcade mode.
