For whatever reason, Persha has removed the option to have manual control over flaps. It needs to come back, because the auto-pilot is terrible.

Also, interface options need to make a return.

 

At least the shooting isn't as bad as when I last tried, despite having some latency.

 

The Conquest game-mode in general doesn't seem to reward Fighters/Multi-role players enough (Read: PVP players). I didn't feel like I could make a good effort to push capture points because my entire team (Read: Bots) wouldn't take out the AAA encampments around them.

 

Example pictures from a game I played to demonstrate that being a good fighter doesn't mean squat in the new mode:

Apparently WG has blacklisted common image hosting sites making putting images in this post much harder than it should be. How on earth do you guys ruin everything possible?

 

Also the amount of medals is a bit silly.

 

EDIT: I know feedback here means literally nothing to the developers whatsoever, but hey, what the hec, why not complain?

 

EDIT 2: Also adding that the camera controls really need to be tightened up. Switching to free-look has no immediate "tell" for when it's ready, and it takes 1-2 seconds for it to even activate.

 

EDIT 3: Something very important to note as well is that performance degrades very heavily towards the end of a Conquest round. This is likely due to all of the useless bots that are flying around doing nothing. We also very much need to have the Angle-Of-Attack indicator return, since its impossible to tell where the exact horizon should be or what angle I am climbing/diving at otherwise.

English translation, you can still use imgur.com but you can't use the secure link, just drop the "s" from https.

It was my iPad speak and spell.  BTW I have started to get the same error using Copy Image Pasta as well... have to click image after Pastaing it, then update the link to remove the 's'

If you use a joystick you do have flap control. Why it isn't there for the KB & mouse players is another Persha WTH item.

Yeah, feature removal is a weird update...

 

I only wish they'd use that new technique on the things that were actually bad rather than integral parts of my control scheme.

Probably for the same reason pitch up wasnt available in the first round.... it is available now though.

Yeah but it sure looks like they are reinventing the wheel instead of using the proven parts of the current game.

Aren't they reinventing every single thing for 2.0?

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

Good point. The basic idea isn't bad and along with getting more humans into matches it would make a nice addition to the map rotation as the current 1.9 game sits.

It's too bad they aren't keeping what worked from 1.x.

Phrap showed me a video he made of him playing on the test server. I can honestly say I don't know what game that is, rest in peace World of Warplanes.
