It seems I can't go a week without typing something in here at present. Another weekend, and another farce.


Over the last 48 hours I've been shot down multiple times, by Fighters, while I'm right behind them (100-300 meters), and they don't have rear gunners. It's just happened again, this time from a Yak-9U the Tier 7 Soviet Fighter. It's also happened with the T7 Brittish Heavy Fighter the Hornet. Other one that stands out is Tier 6 Brittish Multi Role Tornado.

Over the weekend Bot Planes seem to have miraculously had their flight parameters buffed through the roof. ie please explain how a Tier 7 Hornet can stay behind a hard turning Tier 8 Spitfire XIV, that is fully unlocked and has upgraded wings and engine? There is no way on earth the Hornet can turn as sharp as a Spitfire, it just isn't possible.

Lastly on 2 occasions I've been shot down by bot Air Defence Planes, that I had shot down 10+ seconds earlier. Seriously, both times they were the last Air Defence Plane alive, they burst into flames, the capture bar moved along, I then moved down to ground level to strafe ground targets and then I die (while still diving to ground level). Camera pans to the plane that killed me, and both times it was a dead plane falling to ground still on fire, missing part of the fuselage.

If I didn't know better (tin hat conspiracy time), I'd swear there is someone who works on this game Monday to Friday and everything works...…...just ok or slightly under. Then when they walk out the door on Friday night, they key in a command and it all goes to crap. Just so they can walk in the door Monday morning and be needed to fix something that went to crapover the weekend. I just don't get how these massive cockups always happen over the weekend. Surely server load isn't that much bigger come weekends? I would have over 50% of my battles as a human on each team + bots, so I'm either playing tiers that others don't or I'm getting some really crazy Match Maker results.


Ohh, forget 2 more.

58 Second respawn, I though the high 30 second ones were painful, but that takes the cake.

Watching from friendly planes when your dead, and just watch them fly straight into the ground or into a hill, with no one around them...…………..

Got one more, and this probably isn't a bug but it should be dealt with.

If 2 planes get destroyed at the same time (ie weak dog rammed me and we both got killed) why does one respawn earlier than the other? I would have thought same time of destruction = same time respawn, not happy when the other player respawns 10+ seconds earlier.

so you play... doh!

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 haven't had the getting shot down by a non turret gunner aircraft that I was following in awhile but I know what you mean.  But I have definitely noticed the extra weekend wonkiness.  Also what's up with the flak continuing after the base is capped?  Or it firing at you when you have gotten outside its zone?

Your examples aren't bugs..

They are planned and executed strategies that WGing implemented into the game to make it more challenging and funner :great: for you..

That's the good news..

The bad news is WGing has more plans for the game!!

Seriously, game crashes about 3 times every game session. I have to restart my CPU. I've also noticed right as squall line hits a bot comes out of nowhere to shoot me down. Almost as if they wait for it. Hope this stuff gest fixed soon.

Might as well go back to the 80's and play Zaxon.....you really wonder what they are doing especially when there is no test server to try these changes before releasing the game to the player base.

Wouldn't matter.  Same result.  Just like when they shoved 2.0 down our throats after brief testing and concerns voiced.  And everything else they've previously done over the years.

They just give lip service.  Soon.

How about you win a battle but the after battle screen credits you with a defeat? The defeat screen is showing the score 800 748... in your favor!

This has happened twice to me.


Or the classic; your shot down, you respawn... oh no you don't! instead, you're trapped in spectator mode with a teammate. Only when he gets shot down will you be able to respawn. 

This has happened to me more times than I can recall. Just moments ago I watched a battle slip away from me from the back seat of a bomber, what a pisser!


Also, I thought it was my imagination but yeah I have in the last couple of days on several occasions been shot down by phantoms.


I have been trying to ignore this stuff but lately, it is beginning to make me really dislike playing wowp.
