Anyone else notice the salvaged parts have become less now after the last mini patch?

Yep. They nerfed it apparently. And somehow broke the boost consumable on top of it.

 

I got four parts out of an 8 kill, 2 GT 11000+ points game last night. 

 

So.... yanno, abuse the boost bug while you can. At least its funny.

I've kinda had my fill myself. The amount of parts you get in the crates is pretty miserable considering the sheer amount of parts upgrading your equipment takes. It is physically impossible to Specialize any more than a handful of airplanes and outfit them all with Ultimate quality equipment unless you're Jeff Bezos or something.

 

Anyway, I haven't come across a Specialist I couldn't kill even in an unupgraded plane so meh. Now that my top three planes are almost fully kitted out I'll just play the long game.

Agreed same here I get shot down and shoot down others in elite status but the salvage is well can we say a grab once again just frustrating - I hope they don't screw will pilot skills but I fear it to will be screwed.

 

Btw where is info on the boost issue? Did not see that one on the forums?

Its something I stumbled upon and then it was brought up on the WoWp Discord.

 

Basically the Boost Consumable is bugged to the nine hells where triggering it while keeping your finger off the boost INSTANTLY replenishes all your boost and, once the consumable has worn off, you can still boost without it costing you anything for up to three seconds. 

 

On planes with huge boost bars, its ridiculous. I basically fly my Fws with my finger on the boost button these days.

Welp, now that this cat is out of the bag, I encourage every player in game to shamelessly abuse this bug!:great:

 

I mean, even when the consumable first came out everyone knew it was game breakingly OP, and yet somehow, they made it even more game breaking.

 

WG don't you think it's time to stop your delusion and get rid of the mario kart consumables?:facepalm:

I have joined WG Discord but as W_W said it disappears so I stick to the forums were I can read any topic any time unless WG is willing to leave data up such as our clans leaders Discord is made. Sorry, I have lost faith and trust in WG as a whole so I take them with a grain of pepper or was it salt?

I'm so proud that this is a thing.  That these ridiculous consumables are referred to in that way, as I was the first to draw the comparison.

 

If only the game wasn't so broken to prohibit my actively playing it.  Honestly, I'd take back everything I said about those ridiculously stupid power up consumables if patch 2.0.5 would vanish as part of the deal.

I got exactly 'one' stinking airframe part the other night after a win

if I keep playing, don't think I will bother with specialist upgrading,

just gives other pilots a priority target

What's wrong with being a GAA? :P

(looks at you with 10 fwd 7.62's)


I can’t promise that if you choose to fight, that there will ever be a victory…or a day that we can step down and say our work is finished. Our lives are the sum total of thousand of choices. And the burden of that freedom is sometimes too much to bear. But you won’t have to do it alone anymore. We will find a better way..

Together.

I am sorry W_W, but that does not qualify as a Little Johnny joke.  Google Little Johnny and you will see what I mean.  Little Johnny ALWAYS gets the last word.
