Yeah, I got a few bonus codes in emails.. heck. it's the only reason I decided to come have a look again. 2.0. New shiny? Or ...?

What I've been reading around here, I'm still not convinced about returning. Those of you from the old, want your chance to bring me back? Shoot now or forever hold your peace.

If you like arcade, you might find it quite fun.

If you prefer something with a more "realistic" flight model, you're going to be disappointed.

 

No harm in checking it out. If you don't like it, at most you'll waste a few hours. Up to you.

Pretty much this. Asking most 'veterans' on the forums is going to result in sodium poisoning anyway.

 

Download it and play it. You'll either like the direction it is going in, or you won't. All that was lost was a few hours of downloading, redeeming codes, and then logging in and playing.


Fly me closer, I want to hit them with my sword!

Try it and see, then make your decision, but don't rush to that decision, it can take a few battles for someone with any real experience to get a handle on the changes.

This. Only you can make your decision.

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.

There are a lot of drama queens making posts right now, and a lot of rage quitters, and aparantly all the new players are currently blocked from posting on the forums even though they have met the minimum battle count.

 

Who cares what people say... try it. Its a free game.

Tell you what Mars, this is a huge weekend for 2.0. WG has advertised the game on the Tanks News Portal(but strangely, not on Ships) touting the new mode & a 3x bonus for first wins. If there is not a significant pick up in traffic this weekend, you can stick a fork in it.

And who are you to dictate any terms on whether or not someone should stick a fork in it?

 

If people like it, they will play it, if not they wont.  I could care less for someone that doesn't like it, but takes time to try and convince others what they should or shouldn't like.

You should know by now that misery loves company.

Really. Only took Persha a week to clear the server out with 1.5.

I hope they do not stick a fork in it, I hope a lot more come back and play. That's the only way I'll see the content and mode expansion I'm looking for.

I remember that disaster.
