... :facepalm: Seriously WG? I picked this up on reddit. One would think this would be important news to spread around to the community especially our very small NA region...? Well atleast it's only 11 days old.

 

 

He (AI King) talks about:

 

  • Bomber escort
  • Inclusion of the Japan region as an official community for the game and support for similar update versions/game clients (eg they also want bomber escort)
  • B-17 addition at the end of the year + more US bombers

 

So it looks like we might get an update very Soon™...

How do you get it soooo wrong?:P:unsure::sceptic::(:angry::facepalm:

 

WOWP was "not fun" because it lacked: "mission" variety; PvE; "role" differentiation; and respawn.

The game sucked because of that? Really? 

What this video shows me is that he was basically compliant to the screw you mentality the devs took towards their veteran player base.

This game has lost all hope of ever being great.

 Gamescon was the last week in August, i believe      so it's been a little over a month since this video was made

 

did he get the sequence of the releases backwards, or maybe BEM got delayed??

What about the whole of ASIA and Australia and New Zealand, I have an account on the NA server that is now unplayable due to the ping and the few games I played on the JPN server were great fun, so open that server up and let the players who left warplanes accounts on the NA server when we transferred our tanks account to ASIA shift servers! It would be nice to have the unified account for all games that WG keep talking about!

Waiting patiently for the flight path to ASIA to be announced so all my accounts can be linked

I watched part of one of the recent streams and I think Eekeeboo said something about an update happening the middle of this week.

And 41 in Que is pretty terrible, sorry. as is 4800 people (not saying we have more now but that is terrible and is exactly why they made changes, sadly not all have been very good changes)

Yeah, uh no.  Pork Chop banged, greasy hair, product marketing people don't matter all that much in my book.  

 

Whatever this jag says should be taken with a grain and a half of salt.  It may be coming, but not in the time frame he says.  He is marketing: make big statements, blame development when it does not happen.

Nothing about a real update  in the October overview on EU : https://worldofwarpl...ws/oct-summary/

 

And only a Bomber Support (not escort) coming week : https://worldofwarpl...news/boot-camp/

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.

http://forum.worldofwarplanes.com/index.php?/topic/53988-analysis-steam-wowp-sept-numbers-are-weakening/

 

4800 is much much much better than anything they have had on NA since they made the changes. We can all agree that 4800 is half of what wows had and that was a failure, but 4800 beats the hell out of what there is now or anything since the first of the .5 patches.  It's proof that the dev path they took was less than well thought out, in this case numbers don't lie (why else would they take them out on the client?).

You have it backwards, it's because of the stupid changes that the population declined & there were quick queue times because the matchmaker didn't have a million conditions that had to be met to make a game, less people waiting in queue. Please tell me how is the game better now with all bot games vs all human game?

Update happened last night with the game and now has the mentioned features.

 

Calendars around Game Launches and Updates are a bit difficult to manage as they sometimes push back Updates and news.

 

The Bruce Diaries also ended in early August and are done done.
