Is there any way one can change back to the old format that was similar to Tanks?  This 2.0 sucks in my honest opinion.

OP, it has been written...WG has no intention of going back to the previous version.  I for one am very happy about this decision.

In what way was WOWP similar to tanks?  There are no bushes to hide in.

If you read the OP's statement, he is asking for the old format back, and sorry to tell you, WG is bringing it back in some form and I for one am happy that they will be doing so.

 

Q: 2.0 has been introduced on short notice and after a far too short test period, alienating a lot of the “veteran” players who wouldn’t have invested as much time and money (or any of both at all) in a WoWp the way it looks and plays now. Are there any plans to make up for their sudden loss of a game they enjoyed? Any plans to bring back 1.x game elements, battle modes and/or flight physics?

Some of the experience those veteran players might have lost and are yearning for will be brought back with new major updates and game modes. For instance we are working on a “hardcore” PvP dogfighting mode without respawns.

We will not bring 1.x back in the same form as it was, this is our final decision. The game needs to evolve and the former version did not give us any opportunity to do so.

I see this as adding additional "modes", which I think would be great.

Agreed, given the current mode sucks like a black hole...

Yes, a lot do not like the conquest mode.  But hopefully with the new UI and mechanics they will introduce new modes, yes we were promised this since Closed Beta days also that there was going to be more modes, but they never showed up.

 

There is a lot of modes they can introduce and bring back the old mode from 1.9 which all Team Battle was a Team Death Match (with a Supremacy Meter).

 

Conquest mode is no different that Domination in most FPS games.

 

Some modes I would like to see are Escort and smaller TDM like 7v7 or 5v5 and the ever elusive Clan Wars.

current game mode sucks? is it that bad to respawn multiple times? is it that bad that we don't have to wait for 2 minutes in queue? is it really that bad that now it has a base capping mission and gave GAs a real purpose?

We rarely waited anywhere near 2 minutes in 1.9x, so unsure what you're trying to ask here

Let's check all the boxes shall we...

 

Respawns - Yup sucks

Waiting in queue - I'd gladly wait for a game I enjoy playing.  Yea! their is no wait for a game I can't stand to play...  So pretty much sucks

Base capping - Running back and forth between arbitrary points on a map, grouping everyone in confined areas in a cluster of crap, ah yeah sucks.

Missed a few:

Respawing AA - Totally sucks

Neutral air defense planes - Completely sucks

Squall line B. S. - Ultimate level of suction attained...

It took them 4 years (5? if you count alpha/beta time?) to release THIS 2nd game mode.  So, I'll believe that bit about a hardcore pvp, no respawn mode, or ANY other mode when I see it.  Variety is the spice of life!  Unfortunately in combloc countries (where wowp is developed and published), variety is discouraged.

sorry for both but, I have to kindly disagree with two of you.

 

And let's be honest, earlier version of game that you liked is NEVER gonna come back.

And second, if you don't like the game anymore, remember nobody is forcing you to play this game.

 

I like it, as a matter of fact I am really enjoying it than before and many have joined warplanes after this patch.

CB was June 1st, 2012, 1.0.0 Release was Nov 2013, iirc 1st Alpha was January 2012. So almost 2 years of testing. :P

Hate to say it, but it has gotten very boring. Same old game play every match.

 


Careful, I might ruin a guy for fun. :P

People find it it be less boring when they win.  Getting pretty cold and snowy here, how is it in Philly?  Getting loads of the white stuff?

Even if they revamp deathmatch mode, I doubt that will be enough to bring the old herd back.

The planes will still feel as if they are flying in a vacuum, the ui will still be crappy, mouse/kb control will still have an edge over other control inputs.

Biggest problem with previous version, was that they were only offering one gamemode. User interface, Flight models and controls were better than they are now, so no improvement on that part.
All the other crap they put in 2.0 didn't solve the problem of offering only one gamemode that can become boring, switching to another type of gamemode doesn't fix this, because this gamemode will also becomes boring.
Grinding in 2.0 seems to go a lot faster, but planes in the same category feel way more the same. 
Why grind all these different lines, if they are all more or less the same?
Why would someone even want to grind MR-fighters in this version?
Add this together and for the big part 2.0 will become boring even faster than the previous versions.

I also agree on the first 3 points,
except flying GA's, i never had a real interest in that, I didn't even own a single GA prior to 2.0.
