I have concerns over the Specialist configuration for aircraft that don't exactly run best with the top modules available:

  • The Hs 129 B works best with the four bombs over the 37mm cannon.
  • The IL-2 can run the 23mm cannons over the 37mm cannons to gain 15 km/h top speed at the cost of a bit of damage.
  • The IL-8 performs better with the six FAB-100 bombs over the two FAB-250.
  • The P-47B Thunderbolt, and pretty much any Multirole and Heavy Fighter, can run with partial, or without ordnance to gain a higher top speed at the cost of ground pounding potential.

 

So are these planes just stuck with simply their Elite configuration or does the Specialist configuration not take into account these optional modules (I'd imagine the IL-2 will strictly have to run the 37s since it's not as optional)?

This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

so a lot of new junk, bring back video replay from 1.9, and fix one issue.   Okay... ... ... When are you going to fix all the other issues? ... ... ... like chatroom crash, no tokens for some players on first medal of the day, putting the two databases back together so we can see our stats in one place, put the old data back in the API, incorect stats for players, incorect clan stats the 22nd rated clan has no stats because they have no flights, and on and on and on and on... ... ...

So basically, you trade customization of planes' base module for the statistics modifications. Your call, which you can freely make.

Had a feeling the company cheerleader was full of it when it said they are working on correcting problems with the game.

I don't see this update doing anything for player retention.  I am sure there will be a nice population spike at first, but there really is nothing here that changes the core of the game or adds to it, and once the newness wares off, we will be right back where we are now.  It is basically the same game with a different customization plan.  This is all my opinion, but I am tired of re-spawns where you defeat someone in a hard fight, only to have that same player come back with a full health plane and defeat you.  Tired of bot imbalances which also applies to bomber squadron imbalances where it feels as if one side can't hit much while the other side can flip a zone, which means bots are determining the outcome of more matches than they should.  I am also tired of not having a reason to try to get my plane maxed out with the best pilot and equipment other than just trying to compensate for the crap bots that get placed on my team at times.  I am tired of there being absolutely no in game clan functionality.  In my opinion, the bad still out weighs the good after reading what this update offers.

I honestly think the changes to equipment are a bad decision. Increased customization is great, but with everything having negatives and potentially rng values that you need to invest time to Improve them, I don’t see why you would invest in equipment at all now.

Also, why do the negative values increase as the equipment quality improves? That is utterly stupid, it should be reducing the negative values as quality improves(gets removed at ultimate level maybe) or atleast at minimum keep it the same. I don’t think anyone will be upgrading to ultimate level since it will effectively become a significant trade off of one stat for another.

The change to consumables to wows/wot style is good though, no issue there. However I think the equipment changes need to be delayed and reworked further cause right now its got serious flaws that need to change.

Im not quite sure, but it looks like all the time & effort I put into my TSH-2 is going to get bashed, smashed, trashed & nerfed on top of all that..This may be the nail n the flying coffin for me..

calibration seems like an interesting idea though..


I can’t promise that if you choose to fight, that there will ever be a victory…or a day that we can step down and say our work is finished. Our lives are the sum total of thousand of choices. And the burden of that freedom is sometimes too much to bear. But you won’t have to do it alone anymore. We will find a better way..

Together.

This is probably because they want you to "minmax" your planes. You take some extreme upsides for some extreme downsides. Alternatively, you can take some minors boosts for some minor downsides.  It's to limit the power of upgraded items, sure you have a huge boost, but you have a very serious penalty to think about, do you want to chance it? Or would you rather play it safe and get some small buffs but at the same time have downsides that are barely noticeable?

 

I'm... curious about this update, but most of it will be whether or not they actually worked on optimization and fixing bugs with the game as for whether or not this really brings me back to play regularly.

 


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

I even made a custom skin for my IL-10M!

All equipment available on players' accounts and mounted on aircraft was demounted for free and sent to the Depot. All equipment was replaced with new Stock-quality equivalents producing similar effects. Similarly, all consumables were demounted, replaced with new ones, and sent to the Depot.

Not that, after that.

 

Do every kind of new equipments that are equipped needing gold to demount, or what?

some day they will see the light and fix the bugs or better yet... ... ... turn off 2.0 and go back to 1.9 until they get 2.0 fixed

 

That would be a smart thing to do but who there is smart?????

what's your opinion on my depot,

should I just sell everything in there except for belts...

I mean really, wth just happened

my 4 years of stocking valuable consumables, modules, bombs and belts are now totally effed?

absolute bull slip stuff here...

watch your step 2.0 players/noobs... they're gunna screw you just like they did us 1.9ers


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

Wow, I did stock up on quite a bit of ammo...right, there's nothing being said about ordnance, either.

Technically I don't think you lose anything, what you stockpiled before will still be there, only it will be converted to its new equivalent.  I wouldn't sell just because you usually take a loss and you may find yourself using the new stuff just the same.  Worst case you can sell the stuff back after the update if you find you don't want it and (here is the gamble) hopefully you get the same amount of credits if you were to sell it prior to the update.
