I haven't been around a year but I still approve of the BASIC idea of 2.0.5. Its just that there's so much left undone with it, so many imbalances and poorly thought out and implemented features that I can't call it an improvement.

 

i came back when i noticed an online ad for 2.0, so it hasn't been a full year yet, either            i'm still a fanboi, mostly because of respawn

 

i hope that it survives, because i'm really enjoying the hybrid BnZ style of mid-tier 109s so much, and i would never have attempted trying them in 1.x or WT

if i were wowp folks, i would pay attention to this thread.   As of right now, eighty-eight percent of players that responded don't like the direction the game has been going.  This would be a great time for Wargaming to make some sort of public statement so that eighty-eight percent of the player base knows there's something worth while to stick around for.    Part of that lack of approval comes from the seeming 'aloofness' and 'disparaging' attitude that we perceive originating from the game designers... this is low-hanging fruit sorta problem... just come out and tell us good things.    How hard is that? ... well, i guess it can be very hard if WG doesn't have anything 'good' to tell.

I dunno... to admit failure shows weakness...

I've heard this is exactly how it was envisioned

maybe you just don't appreciate/recognize awesomeness


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.

i've been here from the beginning, off and on,

loved 1.19, hated 2.0 but perservered and came to semi like it,

this 2.05 is like a slap in the face, 65 planes to regrind, including premiums!!

using a system i don't understand, and don't want to understand, using a lottery to upgrade??!!

this has really taken the shine off, and the fun out of this game for me.

now been playing new IL2, but will check in once in a while

These latest changes only encourage people to fly lower levels to get more kills and gear to get their planes back up to the level they once had. This will only encourage seasoned players to fly lower tiers and brutally destroy any noobs chance of winning. If new players get seal clubbed to death then they will quickly drop off and not come back. So if they want new players to come and stay, there needs to be a better incentive to move up to the higher tiers to play and stay there. Each change to the game under this current regime is nothing but pure aggravation and annoyance. I'm not going to spend any money on this thing if they keep heading in this direction. Going to stick to my guns until a new management is in place that caters to what the players want instead of the corporate CEOs who want more money for a lower performance, lower satisfaction game. I'll pay to play when they listen up and give me back the combat version and nothing is going to change that.

2.0  Is good.

2.05 Just makes you not want to play the game anymore, now I have to upgrade my planes again to Specialist.

It basically sets back my progress to grind other planes and move to higher tiers back by about 6 months.

I log into the game to have a bit of fun, not Work Full Time to Grind the same planes back to fully upgraded status, ie "Specialist"

Also in the past the Captain Skills used to have a synergy with your Modules you chose to put on your plane.  Now, not really sure, if that is the case anymore.

It has the potential to make the already OP planes more Overpowered with the Specialist Upgrades, but not sure some Options for Upgrades suit certain planes if you like to play them differently than the norm.

Basically you only have the option to Specialise in  a Linear Fashion that WG has chosen for a particular plane.

I was making progress towards T7 and T8 on  most lines, but now forced to go back to T3-T4 to start specialising planes, lol.  Seems like 3 Steps back to go 1 Giant Leap Forward.

Having the Calibration as a Gambling Option which costs you resources is also stupid to be honest.   After players find out, that more often than not, you downgrade your plane using this option, not sure many will choose it.

Since 2.0, i continued only to fly my premiums. (i'm farming silver to unlock T10's i couldn't afford in v1.9)
So yeah, i don't notice any improvement since this 2.0 crap started.

Or maybe yeah, farming for silver got easier these last times i've played.
Could be because there are even less players online.

Shift back to a more straightforward playstyle like v1.x was, only address the stalling bot behaviour. (make them fly defensive circles instead)

no, staying in que,  screen changes to hanger and the plane is still in battle, 30min later still no plane, restart game plane in hanger, lol

games the group should have won we lost, sector changing to red with no planes in side, red side has one or two bombers red wins, how

nothing gets done, bugs that should have been fixed not fixed, hangar still lagging,

don't no why WG is holding this poll, nothing will happen.

SP, I don't want to minimize your efforts, at all.  I, personally, appreciate them.  I want to be optimistic that you can convey the players' feelings to the WG development staff in a way that will produce positive change.

 

BUT...

 

I know that you have discussed these issues with WG, because I believe it when you told us you have.  But that's about as far as it goes.  "Yes, we know the players don't like it.  We don't care." is what it feels like on this end of things.  The salesmanship end of WG is really crappy, to be honest.  REALLY crappy.  I sort of liked 2.0, because it required more thinking than just "how do I win this particular air combat situation", but disliked it because the UI was (and remains) crap, and the bots are still just as dumb as they have always been, except you can't farm them for tokens like you used to.  I didn't mind too much the nerfing of the HF line, because I still can win often enough with my German HFs that their utter superiority in 1.x isn't merely a wistful memory.  I don't mind the nerfing of the GAAs, either, because trying to hang with an IL-40 in my Gobling is has always be a giant pain.  LOL.

 

It would be nice to know WG's ultimate vision for this game, so that folks know what to expect.  By not explaining it, folks get the idea that WG is just farming WoWP players for their cash, then will pull the plug when the set-up doesn't make returns.  At least have them give us something to look forward to that ISN'T an opportunity to spend real money in the premium shop.

I'd say at 1 point Warplanes was making improvements in the right direction. Then you people did 2.0.5..... Way to take 3 steps back.

It was going in the right direction with 2.0.   

 

Then some genius got the brainstorm that was 2.0.5   and put the game back worse than a return to 1.9 would have.   

 

Just  Example of how bad things are getting.  Opened my email to find a survey for world of warpalnes, and though... "Great, this is a way I can finally get my feelings on record for someone to view..... "    Started said survey, got about 18% done, and EVEN THE SURVEY CRASHED and it would not let me back ito it, it now just says "You have completeed this survey"   ...........   Ya know. ... when the SURVEY to gauge improvement craps the bed.  It'st time to either hang it up, or start listening to the player base.

2.0.5 is poorly executed.  specialist should have just added components when you reach specialist, not removed what we already had.  Lack of bomb sites and lost of concealing livery really hurt bombers.   GAA were hurt but not as bad.

Maybe you gave the survey too many negative responses?  :trollface:

maybe they could just roll back to v1.4

and the developers could return the money they wasted the last 3 years

if there are no bombers then I will stop playing
