How in the heck did they ever come up with this crap?  I have not played many games since 2.0.5 launched but today decided to grind my XF5U into the early morning.  

 

Got specialist and rolled the dice 3X, each time it was a worse configuration than the core specialist.  What morons.  

 

WTH were they thinking?  We are going to grind the heck outta our pixel planes just to see them made more lame after upgrading?  Just totally unacceptable.  

 

On to Fortnite.  [edited] you Persha - you suck.

  

Yep, another uninstall.  My joystick is dying and no, I am not going to buy another one.  I am done.

I'm not really exaggerating when I say that 2.0.5 killed off 80%+ of the people I talked to and played with... myself included.

 

For my flying and shooting fix, I've resorted to a retrofitted B'rel class bird of prey...


I don't want to hurt you... I just want to kill you!

^  above are 2 veteran players, with what I believe are accurate assessments of the current game since 2.05, myself included since 2.05 have played exactly 6 games, and do not plan on playing WOWP in this current state.

 

2.05 is a blatant $$$$ grab, and (im one player that spent gobs of $$$ on all 3 titles), but not another freaking dime on this [edited]., I have played a lot of games sine the C-64 came out...seen games come and go, but never a joke like this 2.05.

 

Im still waiting for someone from WG to explain the current stat of "improved premium planes" vs the ones on my hanger..... why are the ones being sold now better?

With all the problems with 'gambling' in video games, especially with micro-transactions... it's rather surprising (HA!  It's WoWP, so not really) they would add something to the game that's already looked at as extremely shady.

Calibration is quite fun. I specialized two planes the hard way and earned a small pile of materials which I invested into calibrating my IL-40P's reinforced airframe, that was a mistake. I went from 45 heat-resistant parts (the only material I'm currently having a severe shortage of) to 0, and had an amazing +12 added to it's capabilities, which was just a straight increase in the bonuses for no increase in the penalty. So, 15 rolls of the calibration, only to get one good one, and the rest went to waste.

 

Needless to say, I don't play slots very much for good reason; and adding a slot machine to WoWp rather than incremental improvements (which has a whole different set of issues by the way) proves quite a turn off in motivation to play. I can have two-three days worth of effort get invested into a single piece of equipment only to get one matches worth out of it, that sounds like a great time.

 

Something else I found out a while ago is perfectly tuned equipment cannot be calibrated again. The reason this is important is because I thought you being able to go backwards is to reduce the benefits/penalties if you so desire as to perhaps reach a level where you have everything precisely tuned to your aircraft. However, since when a piece of equipment reaches max calibration you can no longer calibrate it, that means going backwards is legitimately a complete and utter waste of materials.

The delay between decloaking and bringing up the shields is a killer, though.

Calibration needs to be fixed and it would be really simple to do - just take away the randomness and have a set increase for every calibration payment.

 

Even if randomness absolutely has to be kept, take away the negative rolls. It's just frustrating to throw away materials with all the bad rolls.

The following is a transcript of an argument between the Money Grubbing Dept (23 people) and the Fun Dept (1 guy) at WG Headquarters.

 

FD "How can we increase the fun factor in game?"

 

MGD, "Dunno, that's your Dept."

 

FD, "I know! We could add a mini game where people can gamble.  Call it calibration."

 

MGD, "Good idea!  We can rig it so they lose much more than they win thereby forcing increased sales of parts!"

 

FD, "Doesn't that kinda kill the fun?"

 

MGD, "Dunno. that's your Dept."

The Head of the Money Grubbing Dept (MGD), "Congrats on your promotion!"  (now 32 people)

 

The Head of the newly named Dept of Fun, Customer Relations, and Latrine Queen.  (DFCRLQ)  (still one guy), "Thanks!  So any ideas for increasing the fun factor and our customer satisfaction?"

 

MGD, "I dunno, your Dept."

 

DFCRLQ, "Why don't we give parts to the participants?"

 

MGD, "Good idea!  We can limit it to the winners and increase our revenue!"

 

DFCRLQ, "But how does that increase customer satisfaction?"

 

MGD, "I dunno, your Dept."

 

DFCRLQ, "We could change the amount of parts given out."

 

MGD, "Good idea!  We can decrease it and cause more buying of crates."

 

DFCRLQ, " But how does that help the fun factor or customer satisfaction?"

 

MGD, "I dunno, your Dept.  But you better think of something soon or you will be out of a job!  BTW the latrine is out of toilet paper."

The head of the newly named Dept of Money Grubbing and Total Supervision of the Latrine Queen (DMGTSLQ)  (now at 79 people). "So idjit, have you finally come up with a good idea?"

 

The head of the newly named Dept of Latrine Queen, {DLQ), (still one guy) "But you said I have had lots of good ideas!"

 

DMGTSLQ, "Yes but when we implemented them people left in droves and our revenue is way down."

 

DLQ, "But you completely turned my ideas around!"

 

DMGTSLQ, "Nobody likes a whiner!  Think of something good quick or out you go!"

 

DLQ, "Why don't we revert to version 1.9?  We had a lot more players and revenue then."

 

DMTSLQ, " Of all the fool ideas!  You let me worry about the revenue, that's my dept."

 

DLQ, "But you said................"

 

DMTSLAQ, "Shut up and go clean the latrine, you knucklehead!"

The head of the Oblivious and Money Grubbing Dept  (OMGD) (now at 145 people), "Do something!  The peasant rabble is advancing with pitchforks and torches!"

 

The one and only guy in the newly (just now) created Dept of Customer Relations and Defense (DCRD), "What can I do?"

 

OMGD, "I dunno, your dept"

 

DCRD, "You only gave me this job 5 minutes ago!  I am weaponless."

 

OMGD, "You should have planned ahead, you fool!"

 

DCRD, "But if you had only implemented some of the changes properly that I had suggested, we wouldn't be in this fix now!"

 

OMGD, "Really great idea!  It was all your ideas!  Throw him to the crowd and make sure they know this mess is all his fault!"

 

DCRD, "But who will clean the latrine?"

 

OMGD, "I dunno, your dept"

Another meeting with the Dept of Revenue, Oblivion and (soon) Support (DROS) (463 people) and the Dept of Fixing This S%$@ and Latrine Queen (DFTSLQ) (still one guy).

 

DROS, (The Supreme One speaks), "I have some sad news to relate.  We are doing so poorly that there have to be cutbacks to increase revenue.."

 

DFTSLQ, (Recently demoted to Under Latrine Queen speaks), "Good idea!  You have entirely too many people contemplating their navel in your dept"

 

Supreme One, "Don't be stupid!  Don't you know my dept is picking up Support soon because we are operating at such a high level?  I am hiring more people to gaze at their..................I mean, pick up the slack."

 

Under Latrine Queen, " But you said we're doing so poorly'"

 

Supreme One, "I meant YOU are doing so poorly.  WE are perfect!"

 

Under Latrine Queen, "Well where are we cutting back then?"

 

Supreme One, "We need to cut the fat, waste, and abuse.  You are fired!"

 

Under Latrine Queen, "But that's just a drop in the bucket!  Surely it makes more sense to eliminate some positions in your dept."

 

Supreme One, "When has making sense brought the promotions and high pay around here?  And don't call me Shirley!"  Clean the latrine on your way out, you idjit!"

Before you Buy any of these crates you need to understand what is going on around here. When you go to use those items, " Roll to upgrade your gear "  there is a 4 to 1 chance that these items actually does any upgrading ( 25%). ( Well at least for all the items that your earn winning the round.)  So it appears that the items are truly only worth 25% to 33% of their true value. Once again....base on this crappy set-up, ( calibrate ) you find yourself buying another crate, to stop the pain of grinding your planes to a acceptable level to compete with other players. This is more money hungry crap  that they ....... force upon us.





Also tagged with calibrate, Persha sucks
