This perversion is not what I sighed up for. Couple years ago tried W Thunder but found it too juvenile. WoWP was an awesome game. Loved the dimensionality. This new mutation of WoWP has unfortunately gone completely in the direction of WT, and lacks skill and competency required to excel. It's based on nothing but randomness and chaos. There haS been a lot of sage advice put forward by numerous dedicated players, but it has all fallen on deaf ears.
 
We have all invested, not just time and money but heart and soul into this Game, only to be pushed aside. But that's life. Sooner or later, your pushed aside, branded and forgotten.
 
The direction that Wargaming has taken for WoWP is clear. The only thing we, the pilots/players can do is vote, by turning off our accounts, computers, cancelling subscriptions etc.
 
It's been fun!. Good luck and goodnight.

This game has turned into a heaping pile of crap.  Everything we worked for over the last 3 years is effectively wiped out.  All our advice and concerns and ideas to make this a better game were ignored.  The switch to v2.0 destroyed a lot of internal stats on our previous battles and pilot and plane stats.  the game as we once knew it has been effectively destroyed and WoWP will not refund us any removing premium time we invested pre v2.0 launch. 

 

The Devs and Product content managers for this game are complete idiots.  Worthless hires with no clue what they are doing.  Firing them would be a good start, but they have driven away so much of the strategic content and gaming immersion that interested players, testers, devs (that knew what they were doing).... well they have all been driven away for good this time.

 

This will go down as one of the worst updates to any game I've ever played in my life.  It's a gigantic disappointment.  We will lose our online friends, and the gaming content at the same time.  And all our concerns will ONCE AGAIN FALL ON DEAF EARS of the complete IDIOTS running this shitshow.

 

To all those players that gave this game a good go the last 3 years, I salute you and also to my clan, I salute you guys as well.  Hopefully a proper WWII aviation simulator appears soon, that we can migrate over to, that will be a much more stable and entertaining and accurate game.  There were a lot of good pilots in this game, and the game developers let us all down this time.

 

And from my emails to customer service, no one gives a crap.  They still think the game has content !!!  lmbo!!!

Echoing Warhog's sentiments, instead of divided gaming time I can concentrate on grinding up some more warship lines and BF1. Great skins hawk, I used several through the years.

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.

This game is highly addicting! I have been strictly World of Tanks for a loooong time, (first played when it was still Beta for Xbox 360). I have personally grinded through the M3 Lee on 3 separate occasions. Finally after all these years I got a PC good enough to run WoT at Ultra and I have been loving it. I remembered trying WoWP a while back but not liking it very much. I recently installed WoWP and WoWS to give them a try on my new PC to see if it made a difference. NOW SO ADDICTED. THEN I find out WoWP 2.0 just released and is completely new. What timing! I haven't played WoT in a week! It's probably a good thing it won't run on my work PC (already had it installed and tried. No dice on this dinosaur) Thanks again!

From someone who has only been using it a few days....

 

When I first heard about WoWp whilst playing WoT, I heard that it was utter rubbish and it would not last.  I heard very little, if anything of it from that time until I heard about 2.0 and that it was basically a rebirth.  I find it to be a WT copy.  The only differences is in the hangar and the layout to research and purchase.

 

I've been with WoT since open beta at the start of 2012 (NA and ASIA) and with WoWs (NA and ASIA) since closed alpha, and recently closed beta with TWA (ASIA).

 

I probably find WoWp more of an arcade play style. 

 

No take-offs or landings.  Ever heard of re-fuelling and re-arming?

 

Unlimited ammo.  Really?  IRL fighter pilots had very limited ammo and could only fire short, well-aimed bursts at an enemy target.  In this you can just keeping firing till you guns overheat. 

 

Engine boost?  Whatever happened to a throttle?

 

Colliding with an enemy plane and die when the enemy just flies on with some minor damage!  Mid-air collisions are the end for BOTH planes and pilots.

 

Yes, I see a few people getting tired of Tanks and Warships who will give Planes a go.  But I don't see it holding them in the game like the others do.

I was just posting observations, not questions.  I know through experience with the other game what the players asked for and what WG give in response is quite often totally different.

 

It may be the respawns, or extra lives, that make it more of an arcade style game.  You may as well just have the pilot's view looking through the gun sights, and add a coin slot on your PC.
