I'll assume from the stupendously bad sentence construction and grammar that english is not your native tongue so that aside, who made you boss, that you can tell others to "play the game as presented or leave?"  If you find "this whinging is depressing day in and day out" then you likely don't care much for what has been done to the players who have sunk considerable amounts of money into WG over time then have been ripped off by the company, which leads me to the conclusion that you don't care what goes on as long as you yourself are not inconvenienced.  The Brits have an expression "I'm all right, Jack" which means I`ve got mine so I'm happy and if you have nothing, screw you, too bad.  Yeah, honourable, isn't it? 

 

You could consider not reading things that offend you but like everyone else in the forum, you are perfectly entitled to read what you want and to offer such comments as you consider appropriate as long as the forum rules are observed.  Just be prepared for the reactions of others who might find them egregious.

 

"Say something positive or don't say anything" reeks of authoritarianism so as another contributor said "Who died and made you god?"  You don`t get to dictate the actions of fellow occupants of the forum.

 

Your last "comment" about pipe smoking wingers leads me to this question: Were you talking about soccer wingers or rugby wingers and are they left side wingers or right side wingers or both?

Your erudite response is awaited with bated breath.

No, not baited, bated.

 

If you descend into trying to ignite a flame war over this by making it personal, you will be ignored because this is emphatically not the forum for such things and I personally prize the politesse and general camaraderie I find throughout the forum since I recently became active here.

 

Yours truly,

I'm not whining ( sp. ), I am trying to discern how a developer can be so wrong, so long, over so many patches. It simply defies the laws of probability.

Well, prepare to pack up, there's no sign of correction by first of July...:unsure:

WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...

I've put this up in a few other posts but it deserves a post of its own, so...

 

WARGAMING!  If nothing is done to redress the theft of goods from your players and the asinine lottery to get back what the players have ALREADY paid for by midnight July 1 WoWP will be deleted and it will never be played again.

 

and in case you claim you can't read it

 

Wargaming! Если ничего не сделано, чтобы исправить кражу товаров у ваших игроков и асинную лотерею, чтобы вернуть то, что игроки ДОЛЖНЫ заплатить к полуночи 1 июля WoWP будет удален, и он больше никогда не будет воспроизведен.

 

The Russian is a machine translation but I'm sure the idea is there.

 

Anybody who may want to follow suit, please say so in a reply post.  These guys need a collective 2x4 upside the head to get their attention!

 

 

 

Apparently a 2x4 properly applied by a sufficient number of people will at least get their attention.  I have read that WG EU was also well up in arms and I'm pretty sure that had a lot to do with the very rapid presentation of a patch.

 

Today's 2.0.5.5 update makes some changes heading in the right direction.  It would be foolhardy optimism to think that the game will ever be the way it was but some change has been presented to us.  Whether or not it is sufficient we will find out from the flavour of the posts over the next few days.  The number of slots for consumables and equipment have been changed for the better right across the spectrum and they have also put up a short (June 22 to June 25 "Scorched Grounds") set of relatively easy missions with decent rewards possibly meant to be taken as some form of redress. (I speculate, y'all understand.)

 

I am sufficiently pleased by the fact that we were even noticed and some form of redress was offered fairly quickly that I am lifting my July 1 deletion date for the time being

 

That does NOT mean I am tossing it aside but I am willing to wait and see what else WG is going to do with the game between now and July 1.  I am still no fan of the Specialization factor and I will treat it the same way I treat the abysmally ridiculous grind method WoWS uses to upgrade captains.  That is, I will ignore it competely.  If it shows up yeah, whatever, I'll apply it, but chase after it? Pffft, not gonna happen.

 

In addition, WG will not be receiving one red cent from me for some considerable time to come.  OK make it nickels, we don't have pennies any more in Canada.

 

Mollified?  Somewhat, but not greatly.  That was one hell of a clanger they dropped with 2.0.5   Let's see what else they have up their sleeves.  They're still on probation and right next to the door marked Way Out.

 

Here's hoping they will refine the situation even further.  We shall see...

Number of slots for equipment and consumables in Premium aircraft for Stock and Specialist configurations has been changed: 

  • Period I (Tier I-IV) — 3 equipment and 3 consumable slots in Stock and +1 consumable slot in Specialist configuration.
  • Period II (Tier V-VII) — 3 equipment and 4 consumable slots in Stock configuration, 4 equipment and 5 consumable slots in Specialist configuration.
  • Period III (Tier VIII-X) — 4 equipment and 4 consumable slots in Stock configuration, 5 equipment and 5 consumable slots in Specialist configuration.

I'm out. Just deleted it. I see now that WG has no intention of complying with our demands. They think we just don't understand how wonderful this patch was and is.


Remember, remember the 14th of... June, the day of patch 2.05.  Some say it's great end-game content, some say it's horrible, but history will always recall which it actually was.

Sorry to see you go Cobra, but I don't blame you at all.  They well nigh and truly screwed themselves with this "upgrade" but are probably thinking that we are idiots for not understanding how brilliant they are.  The re-grind is very much a level of stupidity that I don't think any game developer will ever repeat.  Well, that's probably going too far, but just playing tonight and seeing how many battles I have to do just to specialize one plane that I have played hundreds of battles in is just about too much for me.  

 

Just today I got a bluetooth adapter so I can play Fortnite with my son using an xbox controller.  I might be done as well.

1st of July of July has arrived and after playing the still-maimed game, I have decided that I will not delete it, but it IS moving from my SSD and going into the E: drive, which is basically a parking lot and backup area.  I will pull it up from time to time and give it a turn to see if our esteemed Meatheads-in-Chief have made any material change.  If, after a couple of months, it is still the piece of sh!t is currently is, it will be deleted.  Any enthusiasm I had for the game has pretty much been destroyed by the ham-handed act of greed on the part of WG.

I will still hit the forum to follow on events if there are any after the wave of departures.  I'm pretty sure a fair number of players have given up without making it known on the forum, tip of the iceberg and all that.

 

In the meantime:

NO MONEY for WoWP unless they lay some kind of miracle of common sense on the game but I highly doubt they possess even a modicum of that kind of sense. 

 

I have developed the feeling of late that there was a memo from the High Command to suck as much money as possible out of the game for as long as possible before they shut it down.  I fully expect to find that the game has been taken out of production some time in the future.

 

For the time being, WoWS and WoT also receive NOTHING financially.  ZERO DOLLARS FOR EITHER OF THEM aside from what residual currency is left in the games.  No pressure will be put on WoWP from the those two I am sure, but WG as a company is currently on my fiscal black list so everybody takes the hit since they are a single entity in the end.

 

On the up side, WoWS is still playable, there is the some "exploration" to do in WoT and WT is now definitely back on my list of playables, air and ground.  I may get a bigger SSD and install DCS but that's for the future.  I'll have to get more gear if I'm going to play a sim properly.

 

WAR GAMING! -  I don't care what bulletproof thieve's den you have set up for yourselves through the EULA, YOU STOLE FROM ME AND ALL THE OTHER GAMERS WHO SANK UNTOLD AMOUNTS OF MONEY INTO THE GAME.  You have usurped your customers' time, energy and money and cast us all back to the starting line.  It may be legal, but it sure as hell isn't moral.  You are getting your just desserts.  I'm having a very hard time believing the playership has actually gone up given how new-user unfriendly the "game" (Russian ATM) has now become, but that's in the realm of lies, damned lies and statistics, as the saying goes.

 

My expectations were too high when it came to honesty I guess, but I have learned never, never, ever trust these b@$tids again. 

As the Russian expression goes, the WG executive are certainly NEKULTURNY - to the max.

 

In the meantime, I intend to continue enjoying our Canada Day weekend and to our esteemed cousins to the south, Happy Fourth of July!

See ya on the flip-flop.

 

Deltavee
