Vid's comments are also on point imo. I wonder if now they will consider a roll back. Or is there no limit to the amount of negativity that they will simply just ignore it again and hide under a rug (again) and continue on in their own little world. Like nothing ever happened with 2.0.5... :bajan:

 

It's roughly the same as the forced launch of 2.0 itself, only with even more negativity than then and less support going for it from the players. Hell, it came as even more a surprise than 2.0 being forced through.

 

I vaguely recall saying that WG will eventually run out of luck if they keep taking that approach...and now they seem to do.

 

IMO, the change is too massive for them to simply do a rollback...or WG's pride will not allow them to do so.



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.

Too true... I'm just hoping this isn't the patch that will ultimately kill the game (even though it really looks like it). I still want to get my Thunderstreak :(

Simply put :   This...is a Grindfest with option to Pay your Way into an Advantage over Others.  (Something that WG swears up and down their games don't do.):hiding:  Don't confuse one with the other.  We already earned that right..... by grinding  those planes, along with buying the gold, converting it to free exp. to upgrade and  level our planes. The Patch, just robbed that from all of us, so yea...… were all kind -of -upset & pissed -off over it. :izmena: Most of us now refuse to pay twice, ( for really the same thing ),..... by either grinding or Paying for it. :angry:     Ps. They also added insult to injury by " requiring a Victory " to receive any credit or material that is required to possibly upgrade and  / or calibrate equipment.  ( double grinding ) :facepalm:

hey Magus, 

 

Thanks for the updates, check in every so often to see if i can read the news or forum without going into a rage...nope. Sorry to see another generation of players joining our jaded vets club, i guess they still have a cat and two squirrels running development.

Actually the squirrels are the only ones over there flying, the cat fixes things.

Well looks like no support for issues "All quiet on the Eastern Front" hear a feather drop. I am not uninstalling too much spend to do that but I will no longer spend a penny on this game. Also, decided to not play every night don't care about weather is good time to enjoy the outdoors.

 

Too bad WG is so money hungry I guess a few 10 million dollar homes are not enough lol.

I like the idea of being able to emphasize certain aspects of your plane, like speed, guns, damage or even all three if you want.

 

I come from WOT where grinding is a way of life, you have to work very hard for good crews, complete missions to get female crew members, three mark tanks and so on.

 

I just started playing the game and already I have unlocked specialist on my Mosquito and have been able to craft 3 pieces of equipment at the highest level. I now have way more powerful guns, a stronger boost. and better gun range. The negatives keep the plane in check, I am more susceptible to damage so its not OP.

 

All you have to do is play the game and you will unlock this stuff and gain the resources. Pick your favorite planes and work on those first.

Sneakytails,

 

We could always mount equipment here to improve aspects of our aircraft.

 

The reason for the dissatisfaction is because those of us who had fully upgraded vehicles were faced with aircraft that performed nothing like what we had come to expect the day 2.0.5 dropped and quickly realized that we could either suffer through a bunch of battles with sub-par aircraft or give WG money to make that pain go away.

 

Ditto for the massive stupid grinding on improving said equipment.  This equipment used to be darn good right out of the box.  All of that good equipment was taken away in favor of this new super nerfed stuff, that again....we could grind back up to what we had before OR give WG LOTS of money to MAYBE upgrade it to what we had before.

 

For players with thousands of battles invested into their aircraft already, those aspects of this patch were the highest order of insults.
