The game just isn't ready for 3 man flights.  Having 3 live players coordinated on one side will be too much of an imbalance.  WHen we get to a population where both teams are at least 75% human players... then maybe.  The original reason for removing 3 man flights was that their win rate was too high.  I doubt they would bring them back just to have the same thing happen.

 

AS much as I would like to fly with 2 friends, it wouldn't be a fair match unless there were enough olive players to compensate on the other side, or maybe 15 - 20 player battles as well.

I must admit... it gets lonely at the top sometimes.  But Nancy always stops by to keep me company, and I can visit Foxy any time I want.

Yeah, no. When you mostly get 2,3 players per team in lower tiers and 1 human on each higher up you go.. u wanna squad up, coordinate on comms and fly vs 3 random nubs in pub games? 

Want bigger teams, set up games vs other squads

Add it back only if you go up against other 3 person flights in a balanced way.

  that will be difficult to get a battle with 3 person flight on each team right now at the moment. But if there are an equal number of human on each team, doesn't matter if they are in flight, it should be equal, like the mm right now atm.

Guessing you weren’t around at release.  3 man flights versus randos, while challenging,  proved heavily favoured to said flight.  May work in tanks with that population, but greatly amplified here.  Hence the request of another 3 man flight for balance sake.

Really?  Three manned flight on 12:12 match which we all have 9 bots on each side?

It is insane.

 

Easier to understand.

you flew alone,  and got 3v3(player) match.

Enemy players are unicum or even Very good rated player, with OP plane,  made their three-manned-flight, using TS/Skype/Discord or whatever they can communicate with voice.

And you got two newbies, with random plane which they pick, without TS/Skype/Discord - so can't co-operate as flight does.

 

Player who don't flight nearly always gonna lose, and lose their interest (Who the hell likes the game THAT ALLOWED TO ONLY LOSE?)

Will attract more players at first, but also will LOSE MORE PLAYERS than whom got attracted by three-manned-flight.

 

We had Three-manned flight long-time ago,  but It only gives advantage to damn seal-clubber or stat-padders

I think Three-manned flight was one of MAIN reasons that WOWP 1.0 got killed.  

WOWP 1.0~1.9 also had a lots of reasons that got neglected.  but,  three-manned flight don't let WOWP 1.0 got neglected only,  that crapalso kicked newbie's [edited]and yelling em to uninstall the game.

 

Player who are with three-manned-flight's side will win, but can't shoot planes because flight will slaughter the enemies before they have fun with enemies

Player who face the three-manned-flight are forced to lose, and can do futile resistance only. 

 

Worst idea.  0.1/10


I guess, This pilot is worst teammate when you are on match, *Facepalm

 

Former 2.0 stat.
7155 matches,  53.12% win rate, Hall of fame 772.

Yeah Op's idea works in a perfect world...:rolleyes: maybe some day.....

 

What l am seeing right now is a lot of unbalanced MM due to flights and why are the flights almost always on opposing side auto wins for oppo team mostly as most of the time there is NO proper offset on your team to counter them,.

 

In T-5&6 too many Seal clubber flights...

ex. one in a Spit and one in a Zero, rinse and repeat and farm the expletive out of all the newbs with their brand new code planes. Very fun and engaging game play....:B

How long will this go on and how many pee'd off newbs are gonna exit and never come back? lts bad enuf for me l have planes l'm trying to grind but with them against you you can't stay in the air long enuf to get much done.

 

One battle oppo flight had 22 and 18 kills in another top guy had 26 in A6M3 exp Zero .! Saw the same two flights constantly till l finally threw in the towel and quit for the nite.

Just gotta game the system right?

3 man flights create an imbalance in low pop game (even high pop, but less of an effect), was not fun for people in 3 vs 3 games it got changed because population could not support it (yes i know they say it was statistical imbalance, but i have seen no numbers to support it and given the track record here most likely false). 

 

now i have to whole heartily disagree with anyone who says flights/stat padders killed the game. They may have been the symptom of bad game meta, but they were not the problem (what the actual problem is varies from player to player).The evidence showed that population was growing (still low) in 1.4, and didnt fail until they attempted to make everyone happy with the "you are special " 1.5 mm that the population could not support in NA, they changed flight mechanics to swimming rather than flying, and further nerfed the skill required to hit something with auto aim that was so borked it looked like a magnet was pulling your bullets (actual made it a negative to be a good shot). To be fair the core CBT and Alpha players were dropping off before release due some really bone headed change to dispersion. 

 

the evidence is in the numbers, and unless some can show me we broke 1400 nightly player after flights were changed to 2 i say this is the great red herring of wowp. 

 

anyway, now that there is only 2 might as well keep it that way. This game needs to drop the schizophrenic act and decide what it wants to be and stick with it.

Just dealing with two man flights is a handful when they're on comms. I had a Oscar/Tomahawk pairing chasing their own tails over the middle island plant and it was impossible to break them when queued with a rando who isn't paying attention to anything except his own kill score

2-player flights are already ___ing up MMs, we don't need to make it worse.

We need to attract a lot more players than what we have at the moment (perhaps ten times, I don't know) before WOWP is ready for this.
