Just wanted to leave the comment I was coming back to try 2.05, but then saw some of the honest reviews by Magus and Arrowz - and that put an end to that idea.  The fact WG would make us go back and re-grind planes is insane, saying nothing about the undesirable aspect of all the negative impacts offsets of the new equipment.  We don't play WoWP for realistic simulator physics (though Magus pointed out how irrational some of the trade-offs are).

 

Honestly, the thought of having to re-grind planes makes me think I may never play this game again.  I had thought 2.0+ might start to get better and better with time being on the "right track" even if I didn't like some of the elements of the early release...but 2.05 just proves you're completely capable of making the same mistakes over and over like you did in 1.5.

 

"stupid is as stupid does" should be the new motto for the Dev team.

Why not just have a go with two or three of your favorite airplanes? Rather than looking at it as having to regrind everything to regain what you've lost, why not just take at as an excuse to get reacquainted with some of those planes you'd like to fly again? I'm guessing you haven't been back for a while so why not relearn things and let the inner grog out tweaking and modifying those two or three planes you love the most?

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

GiN_nTonic! It's good to see the older pilots. I hope things are well for you. I am glad you view this insanity clearly. See you in the skys whenever we get a better WoWP product. :honoring:

Flak,

have you ever had a really bad boss...

if you haven't, try to imagine loving your work one day

then hating it the next when a new boss arrives

first day you hear from corporate what a great guy he is...

you're like... hmmm, I'm not so sure, he seems like an idiot and a tool

six months later you're hoping "something happens"

:hiding:

 


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.

A stress free game, first person shooter is what made this game Great ! Now its very stressful to simply play the game.. Very few people want to add a bunch of keyboard commands and hope they push the correct one while engaged in a fight flying 500+mph while under extreme AA fire with the enemy trying to graze your pilot and kill you with 200 HP left.  It was fun when frags mattered and points mattered. Now its like OMG LOOKOUT AND DUCK SO PILOT IS SAFE, OH NO! PUSH THE RIGHT BUTTON, OH GOD TURN TURN TURN, LOOKOUT OMG! AAAAAAAA, SLAP YOUR COMPUTER OFF THE DESK ANGER,  LOL......boy that was so relaxing, thanks wowp. Think, the ruskies in ww2 didn't care about how many planes got shot down, or if their whole country was destroyed, 20 million dead in ww2, they kept sending boys to die until they had used up the Germans  supplies. ATTRITION !! SOUND FAMILIAR...

Forcing you to play only two or three planes would be the death knell to the game. They would effectively lose any income they get from hanger slots, and premiums, because you won't need the extra credits to grind to T10. 

Plus the "tinkering" implementation is inane. No forward gun slot on the P-51s? The new system is so damned limiting as it is right now that the logic behind it seems almost none existent. 

Sorry if I'm putting across a mean tone, my anger is more aimed at WG than it is at you. 

I'm just trying to convince you that what we got with the patch is subpar and less than you deserve as an active player.

This.

 

I can't believe I'm saying this...

WoT is super generous when they make changes.

Did I just say that?

When they changed the Russian heavy tank line, I got a FREE tier 9 tank.

When they changed the British TD line, I got a FREE tier 10 tank!!

I have 1/2 doz free tanks, free camo, free premium time, xp and credit boosters, bonds, etc - all as compensation from changes in the game.


 

WoWP took away all the work I put into the game and gave me what compensation?


 

Not ok.

i guess i didn't completely understand that about the "re-grind" and i was really not interested in 2.05 already. reading it more, wow. I really wanted 2.0 to do well, I knew it wouldn't... 

 

I still sit in traffic and smile thinking about some of the great games (OBT T9 15 vs 15 madness) we had, I wish the new generation could experience that rush and thrill of surviving a full match (no bots are not the same).

 

be good all see you next big patch.

 

Edit: various "I english no speak good" fixes.

Current state of the Patch? 40% increase in players and higher populations across all servers. Next question?

 

LOL

 

So we went from 300 to 420 online, truly game saving.

Between the Patch notes, comments, videos, info that wowp put out, I'm with GnT on this one. I have around 100 planes in my hanger. They can continue to gather dust.

They changed the root mechanics of this game many times. I think this may be the longest running live version of inconsistency to hit on-line gaming. Shame, they almost had it right, shortly after launch.

As someone that played through the 20 minute que times for a 3vs3 match, it's been a up and down, then continually downhill ride since then.

I just want to know how you guys are posting on the forum with less than 10 battles.

I thought they forced us to play at least 10 battles in 2.0 to voice our opinions.

I feel gipped.:angry:

Are they TRYING to kill World of Warplanes?  There are few of us here to begin with, then they nerf our planes, in an attempt to squeeze additional money out of us.  NOT ANOTHER PENNY.

 

 

They have a sale at GOG.com.  Gonna play old enjoyable games that don't try to milk me.

I've been wanting to come back but then they added a mandatory mode during my play time.  Then that ended then this patch requiring me to do what?  That's right grind for open slots in some sort of WoW poop style min-max gear quest.  My main question is when will Tinker Bell be added as a flyable plane?

I uninstalled to clear HD space for the Steam Summer Sale.  I reinstall once this [edited]cash grab passes, or they at least grandfather premium planes to full specialist level and start working on game stability, lag, and those suffering from fps loss. 

 

 

I'm not holding my breath though.
