I am anew player and have a few questions.

 

  • ​Is the Wiki updated for this game?
  • Are there any good yotubers for this game?
  • Is camouflage worth anything in this game?

​Thank toy

Good questions.

Wiki has not been updated in a long time.  There are many you tubers,  Zem from shrike gaming, Bjorn, SirTenDeath,  hyrule,  s_l_a_y, and others make awesome videos (others not mentioned I can't spell their names right) . Camouflage is only good for bombers and ground attack aircraft helps a few less AA hits.  Welcome aboard most importantly have fun.

Hi! And welcome to the game, hope to see you in the skies soon!

1. I don't think the wiki has been updated in some time. I usually go to the game website for info on the planes: https://worldofwarpl....com/warplanes/

2. There are a bunch of youtubers and streamers for the game. The two I follow most are: SirTenDeath & Akirishin

3. Yes, I believe it does help a bit, so long as you select the one that is suggested for the given climate. You have to either stay real low or real high above the action for it to help. Plus it's relatively cheap if you just select the 7 day rental and I think most of them look pretty cool!

Wiki is basically dilapidated due to the chronic shortage of players and nobody stepped up to maintain it. If you want to know anything, ask around in the forums.

 

 



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.

Welcome! There are quite a few YT'ers that post their stuff here in the forums so keep an eye out. Most put their content somewhere in here

welcome and enjoy the game!

 

i'm so sorry that there is no sandbox for new pilots, so that they can learn to fly the different styles of planes before being thrown in alongside high time highly skilled pilots

 

who are escaping the mandatory weekend campaign battles that many don't care for...  (but not me personally, i like 'em all)

 

tier one and two are mostly low time pilots, but tier three definitely will have more deadly killers than normal in it during the Invasion and Attrition campaign time slots

 

the Sat-Sun campaigns end in a week or two, so tiers one through three should generally be clear after that on the weekends, and of course all during the week

 

you'll have to master four things concurrently to win battles:  learn to fly as a team, use your bots, kill quickly, and to capture bases quickly

 

and please... after you learn the basics, offer to flight up using voice comms with new people

Another streamer to checkout is Mars_Revenant

 

https://www.twitch.tv/mars_revenant

 

Mars will generally fly any plane you want, and talk setup. So if you are going a particular line,  he can show you the plane. Or, which I found helpful, he will show you the high tier planes to see if the time investment for the line is worthwhile.

One YouTuber I really enjoy watching is Prince of Hyrule and Shrike Gaming. Both do a great job explaining why they make the choices that they do during battle and are knowledgeable about the game.

I have a guide in my signature, it should help some.

Regarding camo... not much. Does it reduce your spospott range? Yes, but in this game of cap zones, you're going to be seen anyways.  Spending time floating about means you're not contributing to the game. Unless you're talking about the AA paint equipment. If you feel that AA guns are a major annoyance, sure.

even if your camo is 'working' and you cannot be seen visually by any players on the other team...

 

the game will blip you quickly in the radar view and the tab map view whenever you cause some damage, your arrowhead icon will be visible for about one second

 

your team can see you all of the time
