How do you feel about the conquest mode?

You can select maximum of 1 answer

  1.  Its on the right track, needs work

And by needs work, I mean it needs a LOT of work.  Give us back the radar, target aspect window, and other aspects of the HUD we had in 1.9.* that were removed for no good reason and *without explanation*.  This was given as blanket feedback from all regions and we were ignored on it.  Conquest also should NOT be the SOLE battle mode.  If it wasn't intended to be the sole mode going forward, I suggest that maybe 2.0 should not have been released until the Deathmatch mode was updated to the new models.  The attempt to give us variety in battles was not an increase in variety at all; you just replaced one game with a completely different one.

  1.  

How do you feel about how re-spawns are implemented with the Squall line?

You can select maximum of 1 answer

  1.  Great!
  2. Squall line / respawn mechanic is good; it keeps a player active in a battle longer than they had before.  This is particularly important for new players, allowing them to last longer than two minutes in a fight with the plane they are working on.

How to you feel the bombers perform in battle?

You can select maximum of 1 answer

  1.  Have not unlocked them yet
  2. And I won't have live server feedback available on this because of how long by design it takes to get one.  If it's the Blenheim or RB-17, I won't be giving feedback on them.  The only bomber out of the three that was fun for me was the A-26B, because she has frontal guns that can be used to engage other bombers.

How do you like the Graphics update?

You can select maximum of 1 answer

  1.  Beautiful, very nice.
  2. The new graphics are 100% positive for me.

How are the new sounds?

You can select maximum of 1 answer

  1.  Don't like them
  2. Misleadingly simple multiple choice answer here.  I liked some of the sounds, despised others.  The explosions are good, some of the guns...not so much.  The engine sounds are just atrocious.

 

EDIT:

 

PS - Why don't we have three man flights now?  This has gone from a PVP centered game to a PVE one with the shift in focus from aerial battles to ground point control being the decisive factor in victory.

There is no longer any legitimate reason for Warplanes to not have the three-man player groups allowed in Tanks and Warships.

Step 2 - Start up game and check all planes, pilot skills, gold, free exp, silver credits, consumables, ammo belts etc..

 

Everything seeps present and accounted for.

 

:great:

 

They seem to have removed the counter that shows the current online population from hangar... I dont like that.  :facepalm:

I haven't played for long.....but I do like the new changes in 2.0.


 

But this is just my opinion.....kinda like the new crosshair the old one was ok but...added with lag...a bit hard but still ok nevertheless


 

I do hope they randomized the battle session.....not just all conquest mode.....give some random option or specific choices......perhaps implement the system like they do it in mech warrior online....more option is better,


 

Kinda miss the old engine icon and weapon heat (it seems in 2.0 the weapon reach max heating point longer...should've keep it the same).


 

Well I wouldn't mind if the reverted back...but I'm going to enjoy the new 2.0 while it last.... :)

LOL THOSE RESULTS. "But the silent majority LIKES 2.0." Game has less than a year calling it.

The (not so) amazing Chokai is back! And he's hit all his personal goals sans one! Seriously though, nice to be back, looks like he game is improving. I continue to try to recruit new people.

To be fair, anyone who's been active for the last year has spent the majority of their time clubbing bots if they were doing random battles.  :P

The thing that bothers me most is the planes no longer feel like they're flying, they feel like they're floating. The sensation of flight is drastically diminished, ground movement seems so fake. A flying game needs to feel like your flying. Also, anniversaries  are gone, all my upcoming anniversaries, starting tomorrow, are gone. Those anniversaries kept me playing, the free exp rewards funded my WoT account, now their gone.

True, but in Conquest, the bots are unlimited.

Ghostprime, the game has serious issues.  If you're going to take away the aiming reticle for players you need to adjust the bot's laserline ability to aim.

That's a very good point.  The bots' ability to aim has not been lessened by the handicap.

When I saw the update video, I was under the impression we'd be getting a new game mode simular to WOT's encounter and assault modes. Although I think I'm finally getting the hang of the game mode, Wg should really give us some tutorial videos on how to play the game mode along with explaining which planes are best for doing for certain roles.:bajan:

 

They should also bring back the old maps and game mode as an alternative for players who want quick matches and a simpler game mode!

This new format sucks. Not sure I want to paly anymore. What happened to the display of weapons, speed and altitude, the sights.  I just want to sortie, not control areas, quick games, move on when I'm dead and not respawn.  Hopefully WOW and WOT don't get screwed up in the same way!

Forgot to mention!

 

I found it very disheartening that WG removed all my medals i had achieved over a 4-5 year period. It felt liek allt he time I spent on obtaining them was wasted. You should have done what the WOT team does and let the players keep the medals but just change the requirements. see the new burda's medal requirements for an example!:amazed:

This is supposed to be an improvement? It now seems like its a game for little kids. The difficulty level is now really low; I guess the humans left and all the bots suck now.

Step 3 - Played a game.  Very similar to the CT if not exactly the same with none of the promised improvements after receiving player feedback.

 

Disappointed.:facepalm:.

 

Daily missions were unlocked after completing the first battle and progress from the first battle was recorded.

 

The bomber assembly was also unlocked.  I purchased a few crates for tokens and was able to collect some parts.  I ended up using some tokens to purchase all the parts for the tier 3 bomber, it made more financial sense than to risk losing tokens on crates.

 

Everything in the game seems to be working without any glitches.

First game I got 11 kills, but it didn't feel like a challenge at all,

each bot exploded after a few hits.  The game disencourages 

player inititive which is terrible, you just have to follow your

own bots wherever they happen to go.  It feels bot driven not 

player driven.  Sadly this "air combat" places very little emphasis 

on air combat now
