Those who forget history are bound to repeat it.

 

This reminds me a lot of the product introduction of "New Coke".  (April 1985, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Coke )

"New Coke was discontinued in July 2002. It remains influential as a cautionary tale against tampering too extensively with a well-established and successful brand."

 

I would bet many of the players are old enough to remember "New Coke", but I wonder how many from the WOWP program management remember.

 

  1. I liked the previous style of play better.
  2. I have always liked aviation and highly respect the era of aviation combat history around WW2. (game is perfectly targeted, In general I ignore modern jet combat).
  3. The previous flight modes was close enough to give me a feel flying combat in WW2 vs too much gamey.
  4. How hard would it have been to allow users to select mode (Previous or Conquest)?
    1. A nightmare for developers if they tried to maintain updates for both.
    2. Solution: Allow users to continue with pre 2.0 gameplay, but little to no support.
    3. This would allow users to chose, but might mean little to none choosing "New Coke" and the storm of customer feedback.
  5. I will play because this is the closest that feeds my love of military aviation (on my budget in my living room), but I will most likely not be as active.

 

Thanks

Well...while WoWP is well-established (to what few hundred and few thousands on other clusters), but is by no means successful.

WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

You forgot "Never drank Coke back then, and still don't"

 

I remember New Coke.  It was Pepsi in a Coke can, but I drank Mountain Dew back then.  I would have been in high school at that point.
