 I can't even change my ammo type.

 Ammo moved to the Consumables section, should be available under Forward Firing Weapons in all planes.

Lack of Universal should be main explanation for your noted reduced lethality ie no fire.

 

Cons:

While initially this levels playing field, over time the sealclubbers will have Specialists with high-roll upgraded Equipment (& downside mitigation rolls) vs newbies with only 1 slot, possibly even no Equipment -> sealclubbing is actually gonna be worse.

With the old system a newbie with enough Silver can at least have an optimal Equipment build.

This is where the Specialization tab is

 

Is it there from the start or only when you reach Specialist status ??

So far I've only seen that a % was added to the Specialist mission in the after battle report ...

But a truce to this mournful story

Turret gunsights.

 

Nice, but I can not mount turret equipment on GA and HF ... slot is there only for bombers.

So they removed equipment from some planes that I can not replace with the new equipment and now my GA/HF are even more vulnerable.

That.

None of the planes I flew yesterday feels/flies like it used to .. it's even easier for the bounty-hunter bots to kill me now.

Yeah I chose the turret mission, only then realised I can only complete that with my A-26B -> had a bunch of battles in that plane to finish it.

Last main mission was 5* ground target kills on each of 2* victories in a row which is actually quite a PITA to get, reset on any loss/less than 4kill battle got a heap of 13+ kills but followed by/on losses, on time 13+ followed by 4 (on map with 3 caps won by quick Superiority), did eventually get it.

And then discovered that you only get that mission series once, not the 1 per Equipment type that I'd misunderstood it as...

I have 2 accounts that I play and I did not see an increase in silver or xp on either.........disappointing. I also do not care to regrind all the aircraft. As a primary fighter player it is also evident to me that the grind to upgrade is also going skew toward bombers and attackers since you can only obtain parts with victorys and not on your individual results. I now have boomerangs that out turn my zeros and spits and apparently have a huge hit point advantage also. Very confused at what the end result the warplanes team invisions.

Low tier GAAs can't get increased HP for their airframe, just better handling, which is the last thing GAAs worry about. Some can't even equip the consumable that improves explosion damage of ordnance, even though they have ordnance available.

 

Oh no ! That too ?

So I'm supposed to fly GA without all the extra armor, concealing livery, ordnance delivery and turret stabilization that I put onto it ???

Pros:

Equipment demount for Tokens instead of gold makes reusing them easy.

1 Token for basic, 2 for Upgraded, 3 for Top Upgrade, very reasonable cost.

All I can say is after a quick look over the Labyrinth Rubie's Cube they made the game War Thunder is looking much better. Sure the Air Combat mode isn't as spread across the map as WoWp, but it is simple. No fussing with the plane to mix and match equipment in a combination you can tolerate. Just pick your plane group, hit battle, and shoot stuff.

A paradigm shift is happening...:sceptic:

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.

The Specialist block/bar is there from the start, as seen in this pic from a stock Me 410.

 

As to other questions about some upgrades, Improved Lightweight Wing Frame was available to mount on a non-Specialist A7M.

It cost 1 token to mount this.

Also and I was able to demount and remount this module at no extra cost.

Whether that is a glitch or not to be rectified later,I don't know but they should leave it like it is.

 

and there is also a mission to Calibrate these modules.

 

and you can pay to 'Enhance' these modules once obtained.

 

so yeah, complicated. but it is different and rewards winning with more than just a WR% increase.

I have been here since 2013

This was a really good game up to the 1.6.5 update, then it's all downhill, just one bad update or upgrade after the other, starting with the 1.7 upgrade.

Then they started taking away the settings controls until the one they have is all but useless.

Crew skills are scored way different and almost impossible to get.

Consumables are outrageously priced.

Now I come here just to see if they put it back the way it used to be, so far no luck.

The only thing I have seen improve is tech support, they seem to be a little more friendly than in the past.

There are too many things for me to complain about right now.

Other than all that I've said, this game really sucks.

But I will keep coming back just to see if it gets good again.

FYI - Even the Russian WoWP pilots have no clue with what the WoWP Developers are doing with the specialist spot from this last upgrade. They have opened lots of threads on the RU WoWP forums.

 

Update : there are 30 pages from the RU WoWP pilots discussing the update 2.0.5 and the changes, So they are confused just like us.

I am glad that I'm taking a break from online gaming and let this mess sort itself out before I return, I played a game yesterday to test my mod and I just had no clue what so ever to any of the new things so I went back to playing/modding Fallout 4/Skyrim for the time being and hope for some more user friendly documentation to arrive.

 

Reminds me of this programmer guy where I once worked, he made excellent tools for those that knew what he knew (which was two people) and the rest just had to figure it out by trial and error...

Same here,was looking forward to some flights last night and was met by a broken game that can barely even load.So I did a half match when on a good night back in the day I would do 50 a night.
