Proposal:

We have 4-5 active PLAYERS sat down and devised missions that would encourage teamwork while still controlling the amount of rewards given so it would cost the same as now. This would build interest in working together for successful battles, it would also raise the interest in this "game".

Now, same 4-5 players could also keep an ongoing thread for input and ideas from the community and keep changing and improving the missions... this would help tighten the community. I'm sure there'd be arguments and disagreements as there always are and always shall be... but it's worth a shot.

The missions are screwed up beyond belief, teamwork is at an all time low, direction of purpose is guesswork at best.  The upside is that very little effort on WG's side... just approve the mission payouts, program the criteria for the pilot/planes and bingo... happier players

I've been thinking about this idea for a few weeks and would appreciate any input/suggestions/flames...

Happy Thanksgiving and Harvest Festivus for all,

if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

It's not in mush yet...:hiding:

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.

Can't teamwork with bots. :angry:


 

Unable to get MR fighters to kill planes instead of die while flying straight and slow to shoot up an AA gun.  :angry:


 

Unable to complete bombing missions in my GA because I have to air-fight to help my team win, since people and bots don't play defense. :angry:


 

Unable to get WG to understand what suggestions are and what they mean in translation.  :angry:  :facepalm:

Those are easy fixes.  Have AI listen to player hotkeys (F2, F3, F4) and they already maneuver when shot by fighters so that can be incorporated into AA avoidance after a varying length of time/damage %.

Keep your head on the swivel.

It would require NA players to be in contact with RU developers...  I think the logistics in that alone will kill your plan.  However you could turn this into some pretty fun community events, and WG admins should be able to back you with prizing.  Maybe over time it could evolve into what you are talking about... depending on the player base in NA and how committed your group is.

Hey anyone know why the X-52 rollers are not recognized?
DICTA BOELCKE for WoWP
    1. Try to secure the upper hand before attacking.
    2. Always continue with an attack you have begun
    3. Open fire only at close range, and then only when the opponent is squarely in your sights
    4. You should always try to keep your eye on your opponent, and never let yourself be deceived by ruses
    5. In any type of attack, it is essential to assail your opponent from behind
    6. If your opponent dives on you, do not try run away from his attack, but fly to meet it
    7. When over the enemy's lines, always remember your own line of retreat
    8. It is better to attack in groups of four or six. Avoid two aircraft attacking the same opponent

Good idea, suggestion to expand to six members. Three old-timers, three new people, so all views gets voiced/heard in-team. :) Oh yeah, happy Thanksgiving of course!

Drew says you're so deep up in WG's dark side that you'd not be impartial and I'm sorta in agreement... maybe we could have a democratic vote or a poll... what do you think?

that might be fair

Two suggestions:

 

  • Increase incentives to kill bombers and other player aircraft.  Right now the only viable lines are the low-altitude turn-fighters, and the high-altitude energy-fighters and heavies are pretty much without a role.

 

And second...

 

  • Find the guy in charge of monetizing for the NA server and beat the soles of his feet with a hose until he understands that offering meaningful discounts on basic stuff like gold and offering smaller, more practical bundles (like Plane+Credits+Premium Time or something like that) is going to make you more money than gigantic, improbably expensive bundles, particularly with the state of the game as it is now (improving but still uncertain).  How many people are going to spend $200 or $500 to get the P-80?  Some, probably, but not as many as would spend $75-$100 to get the P-80 plus gold/credits and premium time.  I had a fair bit of money (>$100) set aside for Black Friday, but now it's going to be spent on something other than WG content because this sale is for crap.  I could go on and on about why chasing Whales as a monetization strategy is moronic.

Monetizing.  In charge of *monetizing.*

 

Also, I live about a half-hour's drive from Emeryville.
