Most of the posters above want back what was already dead, and was replaced because of that.   1.9 is DEAD.  500 people logging on at night in NA.  That won't keep the lights on, and WG did something different rather than keep the status quo.  I'm pretty sure at this point they *expected* a bunch of people to leave.   Sure, it's a risk, but it's better than *knowing* they're losing money every night.  If it fails, they're no worse off than they were, and what's a few bucks to WG?  OTOH, if they actually get 4 digit populations at night, then it works out for them.

 

Why would a WT player possibly play WoWP 2.0?  One big thng to me, fxp vs frp.  You can't use frp in WT for modifications.  Have to use eagles or fly stock.  You can use fxp for modules on stock a/c in WoWP.  That's actually worth something to me.  Oh, and the veterans will look up my battles, and dismiss me.  There's a reason I only had that many...WoWP at 1.9 was a dead end, and not worth putting time into, imo.  2.0 has possibilities.  I mean, I actually saw *gasp* non-bots in game in lower tiers last night.  Will it still be that way a month from now?  Six months from now?  I don't know, and none of you do for sure, either.  Time will tell.

 

Anyway, those of you who wish to leave, good luck in your further endeavors.  Don't wait around for 1.9 to return.  Not happening, imo.  (And no, WG isn't paying me.)

 

 

 

Thanks for this immeasurable and insightful analysis from your 17 battles.

So here's the thing those of you calling for 1.9 to come back don't seem to understand for some reason: a couple hundred players isn't enough to keep the game alive. It's not nearly enough players to generate money to develop the game or even keep the servers online. It was essentially either kill the game or make some massive changes, and they decided to try making some massive changes first. If they switched it back to 1.9 it would be almost guaranteed that the game wouldn't exist anymore a year from now.

Well, it's been a blast flying with and against all you pilots. 

Until it is rolled back to 1.9 I'm out.

We understand that.  What you're failing to recognize is that they took away too many good/working aspects of 1.9 and gave us an unpolished game.  What was the rush to make it live if they're reinstating some of the hud elements?  Where's the anniversary missions?  What was the big hurry?  They did this way back at live.  They do it consistently without learning from the past.  But then you could argue so do us players..at least the ones who are still here.

My opinion does matter as to be frank this update isn't about the dedicated 200 of you that stuck around it is about trying to get any of us that were jaded from how bad the game was early on and never looked back and for new players to come back and give it a try since warthunder is the juggernaut making free money without wowp doing anything. A lot of us complained forever in the alpha/beta forums and were never listened to, some in here might not even remember the pitchfork mob that almost started just to get mouse controls and better controls in general for the game that didn't get shoved in until well after closed beta. As for 1.9 vs WT that debate will go nowhere as were both going to be biased against each other.

 

I really do hope that this update succeeds in bringing in new players and old alike as for the 1st time since coming out of beta i feel like there is actual hope for things to go well with or without anyone over reacting on the forums making mass i quit posts.

 

Look at this guys clan.  18 members with 6 avg battles per member.  He is a WG shill or worse a developer.

​They did not need to do this massive shift in game trajectory and console approach if Persha would have followed WOT and WoWS lead and incorporated end game content, ranked battles, and clan wars. Why is it that the other titles have a variety to choose and not this one? People have asked for over 5 years and the response has been crickets in the cornfield. To be perfectly clear, I'm not at all upset about the change, they needed to do something. But, once again, we received an incomplete game. Radically different, with no tutorial, poor documentation and the worst offense, the promise that more content is coming SOON. I fell for this once before, I'll play again once the developers fulfill their promises, which means never most likely.

as a returning player because of this update i just want to say a few things in defense of 2.0.

 

1. This game isn't nor has it ever been a flying simulation it's always been an arcade game with premium ammo and hp bars, however, its competitor offers a simulator battle mode with a more detailed damage model. 

2. With the respawns in battle its obviously a system taken from its competitor for the betterment of the game now i don't have to worry about waiting forever and a day for a new battle after dying with our low pop server as much anymore.

3. This one is aimed at lemiwinks, bombers are a fantastic addition to this game and yes there are plenty of people who enjoy the feeling of knowing that their b17 is about to carpet bomb the living crap out of an enemy airstrip, factory, etc. the sight of watching it unfold from your bombsight is actually pretty cool and its one of the reasons why ive enjoyed wowps competition in the flying market for so long.

 

 

I think you are wrong about this new game. it is the worst thing that has been done to warplanes ever. I removed warthunder from my computer because it was too cartoony. and Now we have the same thing. the planes don't move properly it is like playing Nintindo. you have no lead indicaters for aiming and the Graphics are trash. I have removed tanks from the list because of too many hacks and now i have to put up with this mess you call an improvement.

I agree. i mean look at how many people where playing before the new update.i would see manybe160 to 400 players at a time when i logged on. now you can't even see how many are on when you log in. I believe that is for a reason. they don't want you to see how many people are leaving.2.0 is a fail period!

Massive changes are Not needed. I never went to the other games because the flying experance was so real in warplanes. but it seems i have went from Pc to nintindo. it is so sad

If they aren't bringing back 1.4 then I don't care. 2.0 is better than 1.5-1.9 and that is a full stop correct answer. 1.5 and beyond killed the game and you want it back? Are you dense?

You guys srsly think this update killed the game, that's rich. This update saved it you couple of few people leaving isn't gunna do anything, this update saved it and kill. Wowp had nothing to offer before 2.0, I'm coming from war thunder and **** love 2.0 and there is tactics meat grind in the first 7 minutes and the last minutes use tactics and speed to eliminate the team before the game ends, you vets just aren't even trying to like the new update.

Maybe people came to Wowp because they didn't like WT?

That's what happened to me at least.
Started there, after a couple of days got fed up with it, came to 1.9 and never left.
Why would you go from WT to WoWP now?
To play the b-version?
