Just really curious on the amount of time players play the game - how many hours are spent during week days vs weekends in what Tier?

 

Thanks in Advance

I generally play for a few hours each night.  Over the week the time is generally spread equally over Low, Mid, and High Tiers because am collecting the Tokens.  Then I grind my Female Valkyrie pilots and RB-17 Bomber pilots in high tiers.

 

Generally I keep to Tier 4 when playing lower tiers.

I never lose; either I win or I learn.

Mmm, I usually spend only 2-3 hours on weekdays at tiers 8/9 (though recently I've been learning to fly the Schnell bomber.)

 

Weekends vary wildly, but usually it goes 4-12 (yes, 12 sometimes if I really don't have a life that day) at tiers 8/9 still.


I do fly Chinese aircraft a fair amount so... *ahem*

Depending on my moods...some days not at all...if something is up for grabs, then I'm on it...

 

I play to mop up missions and accumulate tokens...so I'd be at every tier range...but I prefer 4 in low and 7 in mid, while high would vary.

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.

On a weekday, I'd play between 2-8 games a day at tier 5, 6, and 8. On weekends, I'd play from 8-30 games a day, ranging from tier 4 to 9. I'll often be flighted up on weekends. I'm against sealclubbing, but I wouldn't be against hopping into tier 2 once a week or so. I don't like letting planes sit in my hangar to collect dust.

I don't play a lot on weekdays - maybe an hour at best; 1 - 5 games each night. Weekends vary according to my schedule and can be as few as 6 - 8 or as many as 30 - 40. Tiers vary but 20% - 60% of my time will go into my beloved tier 9 B.V.212.03.

 

Haven't played tier 2 for over a month now and only three games at tier 3 to take advantage of the Boot Camp bonus to upskill my crews.

During the week 3-5 hours a day mostly between 5-8 o'clock.  Weekends varies due to commitments.  I prefer tiers 5-7 since that's my favorite fighters, I prefer WWII aircraft.

I have a hard time playing this (or any game really) for more than a couple hours at a time. I don't play every day, but weekdays, it's usually four to five matches, at most. Weekends, I'll play for a couple of hours, especially if there's an X3 event.

 

I play tiers 5-6 mostly, as I have most lines researched to that level.

I can binge out once or thrice a week, from 8pm est till 12ish (divided between planes and leaping gorillas, but really feeling WoWP, having returned). Usually run low tiers and premiums to start, hitting missions, and ending with a long run of 7/8 tier grinds... What i have noticed, is that at most you’ve got a 2-minute wait before someone randomly matches your tier.

Not minding the bot-heavy games, as they force you to really think about the fine art of cat-herding that is working with all AI. You need to find your role & work it hard.

I play a game at each tier starting at 2...I win, I move on to the next tier.  I lose, them I play the tier again.  I am currently maxed out a tier 8, so when I hit 8 I start over again.

This game is like a side hobby, play it when things get quiet at work & home.:great: Sometimes I don't log in for days, other times I'm on for hours. So if I had to give a good guess, real stick time might be 10 to 12 hrs. a week. :coin: Family & real life issue's always have a higher priority, .....as they should.:honoring:

Honestly, I am most comfortable in the Tier IV - VI Range, but do enjoy the occasional Seal-Clubbing session.

Also, being super high Tier makes me nervous most of the time, so I tend to stick with Flights on higher Tiers.

2-6 hours per week, flying from T1-T8.  Since I have most of my planes at T5/6, I play most of my games at T5/6.  :)

Getting used to the speed at T8 has been my thing.  Everything happens RIGHT NOW.  Set up a ground attack run and damn, there went my target, now I have to turn and make another pass...

 

I think I just need to play up there more.

Definitely takes some getting used to, but once you are there it is hard to relinquish the speed!

I absolutely LOVE being able to get from one capture point to the next in a huge hurry.  I love being able to point the nose straight up and leave other planes in the dust.

My girlfriend has a stupid iPhone that kills our home network with its constant uploads to the Apple Mothership, so I can only play Warplanes when I'm alone in the house.  A handful of games here and there, anywhere from Tier 2 to Tier 5 depending on what I'm grinding for the daily x2/x3/x5.  On a good day when she's out of the house for a few hours I can do maybe 10 battles.

i'll always be a mid-tier guy, too      jets are just not interesting to me

 

don't get as much pure pleasure in high tiers, but i know that flight buddies do, so i'll gamely join in
