that banner pic is me in all of my new 190s getting shot at slaughtered wiped vaporized by any plane on any map in any tier

 

okay, it's fast...  but certainly not faster than any bullet

 

i'm getting somewhat used to shooting from the edges of a cap instead of diving in, but these things are just ridiculously hard to fly

 

but i used to say the exact same thing about the p-38f, and it's an all-time fav today

 

i'll get through the Dora to reach the Ta somehow, but WG knows from the stats that only the bots and SpiritFoxMY fly them

also for the token mission could you guys re work so the missions given out for token are to the tier you pla the most instead of tier 1-10 

and when you sell tokens for fifty gold how about instead of one token you get ten instead but that's just me thank you  for the missions

Heh... I still haven't given up on that line.

Sometimes when I'm really concentrated and disciplined I can do reasonably well in the Fw-190 (and planes like the F4F). But when I get sloppy, it's over ...

And yet, here you are... complaining about people complaining... again.

 

It's almost like you can't help yourself... so perhaps you outta give the others some slack.

If only WG made the 190's fly like they were suppose to with the correct combat specs then you would love them. Read any book by the pilots who flew them and you will see what I mean my pops flew them in combat and loved the way they handled. However, WG refuses or doesn't understand them because they are not a Yak or an I model but hold on is there a slight influence we will never know?

also for warplanes can you guys add a new feature to the game where you categories planes based on their play style like boom and zoom or turn and burn so it can help us players that dont know what planes do what can make it easier to know all the planes in games that are boom and zoom and turn and burners.Can also please add a tutorial system in game on how to play the planes to those ways like teach us how to boom and zoom and turn and burn. I feel this feature could help new and old players to the game.

also for a new even missions maybe one of the reward for completing a bunch of missions could be 5 hanger slots. that and when you sell tokens for gold maybe you could have for 50 gold you could get 10 tokens instead of one. for the token missions maybe you all can rework it so instead of tier 1-10 you could maybe have token missions available only for the tiers you play the most and you could give out small tokens based on the tiers. Well anyway those are my ideas I hope the dev team sees these and maybe right them down.

oh yeah how about community events were you give out bi planes premiums this could help to keep new players maybe because they might get excited enought by winning said plane to keep playing and maybe stick around.

At the moment the developers team is thinking of reconsidering the mechanics and content of daily missions.

 

As far as tutorials is concerned I do not think that instructions or filters for "boom-zoom" or "turn-burn" will appear in foreseeable future.

18 tokens and you can exchange for a hangar slot...the other two games don’t offer that.

Seems neat. Play the game for "a while" and have occasionally have "everything come up milhouse". Just like you wer gonna do anyway.
You can get some free equipment that would be really useful for those US Bombers that will hit the tech tree for christmas.

i'm not a smart guy, but introducing a line of bombers and a line of bomber killers in the same patch seemed counterproductive to me

 

i would have brought in the bombers to get the sky filled with gleeful bombers, then waited a couple of weeks to bring in the bomber killers

 

peeps would be so sick of seeing everyone flying bombers...  the rest of us would jump at the chance to get a new bomber killer

I dont know I think the bomber rear gunners are weak and the new b17s are meh I fought them in my a26b and I just kicked their butts. they might want to buff the gunners on the bombers a tad to do a bit more damange because right now. I think the Japanese heavies would be the better option.

Too late...
 


Speaking as a "Super Genius", here's my 2 cents on the matter..  <lecture mode engaged>

Remember what happened when one premium bomber was released all by itself (RB-17) with no obvious counter to it in the game?

Spoiler


Remember how the forum had a riot about OP tier 8 Premiums and how it was gonna be like WoT all over again?
Was anyone happy ?
Only the Rb17 drivers and even they stopped being happy when they were Neagan'd with a Nerf bat.


Contrast that to the release of German and Russian tech tree bombers

WG releases not just one but Two mid tier bomber lines.
Lines specifically placed to be around the most heavily played tiers of tech tree heavy fighters
(so its pre #Balanced) So no Play2Win.

And at the same time a new event to encourage both Heavy Fighters and their Bomber food to play as a team effort
Allowing  a New Mode of play that has been on the Dev's minds since this game was in alpha.
Its been on the players minds too when they werent focused on other stuff like frame rates and mediocre gameplay and graphics

Specifically the opposite of the meta that had taken hold of the game since "Attrition Mode" about a year ago

Because at that point who liked playing the 3 or so bombers anyway? 
 
Spoiler

And why mess with a Meta that "everyone" had adjusted to?
Spoiler
 

Yet to everyone's surprise ..
The skies were filled with bombers AND the planes to kill them and everyone jumped at the chance to do so.
With much rejoicing to be had all around.


After Both of those experiences ... What to do?


If WG does it the way you expected.
They release a line that everyone has wanted since Alpha.
With a unique game play (compared to other bombers)
And let everyone buy tokens for missions so they can be the first to fly them with little to no competition
except for
until they get sick and tired of seeing them.  And even Prenslau gets tired of recycling his "Its not OP you just need to GetGudSkrub" Rb-17 posts
And only THEN; in the interest of "showing the japanese tech tree some much needed love" and implying a balance of the #OPHighAltitudebombers 
do that cash grab all over with a bunch of planes no one has heard of.
Perceived to be Specifically designed to ruin the experience of flying beloved american bombers.
And boost quarterly sales 3 different times.

 
Some folks just want to see the Forums burn ...


And then there is what WG Actually Did.

Schedule a release of Heavy Bombers that we all wanted to see and play since the game was announced.
and the unique planes to fight them that we didnt know we wanted (unless we were REALLY into Japanese planes).
All for the end of the year.
Each in a national tech tree that has been missing some love (beyond individual premium releases) for quite some time.
All where anyone can have at them for free.
Oh yeah dont forget the Steam tie-in with some kind of special winter offensive event for a server population boost from winter break.
Merry Christmas

And to build up Hype for the big event ... lure in the wallet warriors while they are still thinking about holiday purchases.
The advertising


Believe it or not, I think the folks at WG are putting some thought into this.
