I have been in increasingly frequent blowouts lately, win or lose.  I suppose it balances out in the end but, for me, it sucks all the fun out of it.

 

Beyond the ever returning, ever evolving bugs, I am beginning to see the MM as the biggest problem in the game.  Whether you win or lose, in the end, a stinking, heaping pile of horse poop is just that, horse poop.

 

What do you think?

I find it about the same. Hasn't become any less fun, hasn't become any more fun. Its just... fun.

 

I do think MM and the bots have been a little messy of late but the only problems I've had with blowouts have been ... while flying bombers.

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

Like an "Ex GF" I keep returning , spend $$$$, then feel ripped off, both game play and cost of this game, pretty much take the wind 

out of the sails for me.

 

So many more enjoyable games to play , and companies that are actually trying.

 

WOWP = slow burn.

Westwall sealed the deal for me...I got $100 worth of planes...in exchange of utter burnout.

 

...and now they added the tedium of specialist, and Ships having things to grind for...I'm over there right now, but I'll find some time to get back...soon...

 

But to answer the question, not much have changed, but the will to play diminished greatly...



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

MM is worse than before, more one-sided battles than ever before.

Enhance/calibrate & Specialist stuff I could have done without, doesn't add anything for me compared with what we had (this is arcade ! why the casino games ?)

Event and daily missions are getting impossible to do in a reasonable amount of time.

I don't know. i don't hate it more than the previous 2.x iterations, so about the same for me.

I find the game less fun since 2.0.5 for two reasons:

1) The high emphasis on winning games. Before 2.0.5 the worst you missed out on a loss was the x2 and progress on some daily missions, which you could replace for ones that didn't require victories. That meant that you could focus on playing the game and improving rather than getting a victory at any cost, and that close matches were usually hectic and left a feeling of satisfaction, regardless of the outcome. Now you need to win to earn Materials and make progress on your road to getting the Specialist Configuration, which means that any loss leaves a sour taste, even if the match itself was pretty awesome until the game reminded you that all your progress was for nothing :angry:

 

2) The bot changes in 2.0.6 seem to have messed with bot Ground Pounder sector targeting. This means that bots don't know where to go, which leads to them going to point A then turning around and going for point C, orbiting around point A until they get bored and leave for point B, or even blow up two ground targets in point A and leaving without capturing the sector. This means that player GAAs are the only ones actively capturing sectors, and leaves teams with no human Ground Pounders SOL should they get a layout that requires ground pounders :(


This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

By the small amounts of humans on each team, I would consider this more a bot problem than an MM issue at this point.

Since the great ripoff, I just play to shoot.  And bomb and rocket.  I fly GAA a lot.  The GAA bots, as LMG mentions in his point 2, are idiots, flying from one point to another without accomplishing anything or attacking then not following up (sloping off for a beer, no doubt).

 

The game is so screwed up now that I just play for personal enjoyment without striving to accomplish anything.  I just don't care..WG has screwed it up that bad with the Specialist garbage, the frickin' Casino of Enhance and Calibrate (never calibrate until you have Ultimate everything.) the brainless but multitudinous bots and the glitches they just can't seem to fix, the latest being a black screen while waiting for a mission to start.

It's a given that they will never see another cent from me, given that they ransacked my wallet and nullified my efforts with 2.0.5 so I don't play the game around the gold factor.  The other two games will see some of my money, but not these duplicitous @#$%!

I typed out a long response to this but it bored me.  So, it would bore you all.  

 

Suffice it to say, I wanna hop in a pixel plane and shoot stuff.  I don't wanna spend time in the hangar tweaking crapola.  

 

'nuff said.

About the same: I'm not a fan of the double/triple complexity of the Equipment rework, it hampers my builds in ways I'm not happy with & I don't want to have to do huge mental gymnastics to work out whether its worth upgrading/calibrating/re-rolling.

The whole thing is far far too complex in a game thats everywhere else very much simplified.

 

But bot flying has improved a lot (if not their strategic decision making) & I find that increases the fun factor a lot compared to the previous high prevalence of bot 'death roll'.


C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.

Bots are better????  That is not my experience. I can be leading everybody in points, and still they have air superiority. Seems to happen way too much

The flying manoeuvres they make feel more believable = better, they're not necessarily better at getting kills or making choices of where to go.
