To say I am disappointed would be an understatement.  For 3 years, I have worked to become a better quality pilot, winning 60.5% of battles I flew. With no tutorial, no instruction, no training, no ability to learn, my win rate in 2.0 is around 35%. It seems to make no difference how hard I work, with my best results often being my most dramatic losses.

I bought all but 13 planes in the basic tech trees of all nations, and bought a good chunk of premium planes as well.  I loved this game, playing nearly every day for years.  I spent way too much money on improving my skill, only to have WG remove any use for it in this "update."  It's not an update; it's a different game.  One I am not interested in playing.  The control is sloppy, there is no immersion in flying anymore, many game functions have been removed for no apparent reason, skill and experience matter not at all.

This is not the game WG sold me on.  This is not the game I invested thousands of dollars into.  I feel like my money was stolen in a bait and switch scam.  I doubt I will waste much more time or effort trying to turn this random number generator into anything resembling the exciting, hard fought, skill developing game I came to love more than anything else I had ever played.  Just admit that you robbed us and be damned.

This is certainly no 'update'. Like previously said...it's an entirely different game. I'm one of the longest-run, continuously-active players in this game; started about the first week of closed Beta. Spent a LOT of money on this; as well as the other two titles. I'm an American...and one of the things we do, is to vote with our wallet. This game receives no more money from me. If they change it back, I'll be back.This new game sucks AND blows, and 1 battle was enough for me. this is complete rubbish. this has to be some of the worst crap I ever played. we won...but I'm not sure how. I killed 2 planes in my HG2...not sure how. Like a fracking arcade game. Horrible. I have no intention on literally relearning an entire game I devoted years of my life to playing. Since it really no longer resembles anything of the play style the previous game had. Unless one of my clan somehow talks me into playing it some, I am saying: So long, and thanks for all of the fish...

Your lack of flying skill does NOT equate to me or anyone else 'hacking'. Go fly bots, or low tiers and practice.

When you get shot down in a dogfight, you are just that, shot down! You have taken away the satisfaction of a decisive victory and replaced it with an enigmatic point scoring system. There is a reason I don't play War Thunder and you have put that reason into this game. WOT tried something similar a couple years back, respawns, etc., and it withered on the vine and was removed from the game. The only thing they did different is they did not remove the original game and replace it all together. Just one more thing, why do I have to start over with my stats and accomplishments? That's like telling a soldier to turn in his rank and decorations because we're going to a  different war. I know they are in an "archive", but I don't want to leave the game to check them and I don't want to start over. Send me an e-mail when you bring back the game, then I'll come back and play.

If I wanted to Play WAR THUNDER, that's what I would be playing instead of WOWP.

 

 While Graphics & Sound are great, Please give us back our Standard Battle mode.

 

 It's like NEW Coke, Vs Coke Classic - fix your mistake.

 

 I will no longer spend any $ on Gold, Planes or whatever, let alone play anywhere near as often as I do today.

 

Sorry to see the forced change to Conquest; I'll wait for Standard Battle mode to come back.

Not a fan of the new format.  It's way too busy.  Plus, I'm not on a high-end gaming rig, so the graphics slow down my computer.  The previous version wasn't perfect, but it was a decent way to waste my time.  The new version doesn't really interest me.

2.0 is a joke in flight control compared to 1.9...

the planes float through turns, heavy fighters have less accuracy and almost no true turning ability, ground assault planes are more encumbransome float more than fly, multi roll planes have only one job now which is fly low and support low ground assault and the fighters just fly in big dog piles with no tactics, just point and hold the trigger....

my 9 year old grandson said it was WarThunder just like his computer... No tactics needed, no real strategy needed, no worry of being flamed down since you can respawn and rejoin the fray so no reason to use any skill which makes the game less rewarding....

AT LEAST GIVE US THE OPTION FOR USING THIS MODE>>>>>THIS IS NOT WHAT ANY OF US ASKED FOR!

but please give us constructive feedback so we can jam what you don't want straight down your throats.

 

With the way our previous suggestions were treated all I can suggest is listen to your players for once...we'd never be where we are today if you'd listen to us before

Haha, I tried 3 battles on the test server and uninstalled. Didn't ever think they'd actually release that garbage, but they did. I haven't even downloaded this mess you call a game. Off to some offroad rallying, have fun!

I can not participate in the survey because I absolutely do not like the "Squall Line" and that is not an option.

 

Graphics are nice.

 

I never had a problem with the sounds.

 

Never played a bomber.

 

I do not like the update.  You have pretty much eliminated the PvP aspect of the game.  Situational awareness has been severely reduced in both the plane information as well as the battle information.  Plane performance differences have been pretty much removed from the game making equipment and pilot skills unnoticeable.  The general consensus regarding bots, were most people didn't like them, but understood the necessity for them to create matches with such little population, and you went ahead and added even more bots in this update.  An individuals performance has even less bearing on the outcome of the match.  In the current environment, bots dictate the strategy of each match, meaning you go where they go or you will find yourself back in the hanger.  The GEICO commercials said it best when they say it is so easy a cave man can do it.  Just getting in the game and playing doesn't give you the feeling that you did anything to effect the outcome, which leaves you with an empty feeling at the end of the match of little or no fulfillment.  People may try the game and may even like it, but I think it will get boring fast and those new players will not stay long.  The caveman quits in the commercial too.

Bring back the game I spent money on.  I just wish I had more time to say goodbye to WoWP before the 2.0 came out.

 

Neutral planes ?!!?  For the love of God.  Bots are a necessary evil, buy come on !  Neutral bots ?!?!

 

Can't see my own shots, can't tell if I'm hitting or not, now way to look around, all in all this update is a major step backwards in quality and overall enjoyment.  Respawn of airplanes and ordnance is just wrong.  Now it makes virtually no difference whether you are lugging 2000 pounds of bombs or not?  UUUUUUURG. So many things are wrong with this.  I kept wishing for what quirks remained in 1.9 to be improved on, not on  everything that was RIGHT to be flushed down the toilet so we can start complaining about a brand new series of worst wrongs ???

 

Awful.

I agree with every negative aspect pointed out.  I don't see myself spending anymore time or money on this... I believe I spent my share.  I've been in aircraft (not flight crew) my entire life.  I actually felt connected to my aircraft when in flight.  Enjoyed the battles and worked f'n hard to improve my stats.  Looked forward to flying... sht... I was addicted to it.  WG cured me with 2.0.  I leave behind all my acft... any that were sold I bought back... have em all, painted up and well equipped.  Premium account and gold will be finished in ships and tanks.  Guess I'm glad they screwed it all up before I threw any money down to upgrade my gaming rig, Prolly pick up an HK instead  ;-)

 

Don't see any WG responses... are they being posted somewhere else?

Watching you fly that would be more fun than 2.0

My clan asked me to share this with everyone, so here goes: 

WoWP 2.0 - The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly......
Well, 2.0 is here and it is certainly shaking up X3M. Kind of like an earthquake. I have been closely watching the chats and feeds and played myself for about an hour total after getting my controls and command figured out and watching chat get WAY out of hand. I have come to some initial conclusions and thought I would share them. These are a compilation of both my own thoughts and what I’m hearing from the clan and battle chat....
THE GOOD - 1. Graphics are good - most of us like the look 2. Reward system seems motivational, especially for newer players 3. The concept of capturing territory isn’t a bad one (More on that below) 4. Respawn is welcome in this new style 5. The splash screen to login is 100 times better, well done. 6. The higher emphasis on roles for different types of planes. 7. Tailgunner control 8. Bombers (As a concept - Too soon otherwise to know) 9. Higher kill and win ratios right off the bat. (Too easy, or does experience matter more than originally rumored?)
THE BAD (Negative aspects probably correctable in updates) - 1. Many pilots have been playing since the very start and spent hundreds of dollars and hours chasing stats. Integrate the old standings somehow in ongoing Hall of Fame. 2. The audio for aircraft engines, WEP use, flybys, etc., is horrible. The 1.x wasn’t awesome, but was 100x better than this. 3. No Artificial Horizon or Attitude Indicator. I understand this is easy physics, but, c’mon. If we can accelerate and stall, we need that instrument in the HUD. 4. Boost times for aircraft seem too uniform 5. A free bomber should be given to migrating players. A bit of a slap in the face to dangle that in front of us just to tell us we have to win or buy one to see. 6. In game chat is hard to keep up with vs. 1.X 7. A lot harder to know when we personally get kills or other achievements without the “Tower” voice. It annoyed me on the “about to win or lose” announcements, but everything else he spoke to was VERY helpful.
THE UGLY (Negative aspects requiring major rework and/or causing players to quit immediately) 1. The 1.9 arena/style of play completely gone. I’ve played MMO combat flight simulators since 1997 with dialup ISPs. Played Fighter Ace, Aces High, IL-2, Air Warrior, MSCFS, to name a few and the successful ones ALL had a 1.x-style arena. Points and stats between arenas varied, but all were very popular. If you can integrate the two types of arenas in one game, you will retain more pilots as well as attract new pilots because all skill levels can stay challenged.
Your thoughts?

Not too many voted, have all players gone already?

 


 

It seems WG just wants new kiddo pilots, they don't care about the veterans, they just want kids to spend money.


 

A serious gamer will leave this game after a couple of battles, but WG don't care they need new humans to spend money.


 

GAME OVER FOR ME  (and real soon for WG)


 


 

Thanks for the constructive feedback to your players WG !!!
