Hey all,

 

   If you use the Wargaming Center launcher, you've probably noticed a Wargaming Title on there called 'Total War Arena' (TWA).  I played TWA for several hundred hours and they're now closing the servers down because they didn't make enough money.  They are refunding any purchase since Nov 22nd and allowing you to transfer the gold to another game, but all else is gone (credits/xp/tiers,etc.)

 

   This scares me; we know world of warplanes is not successful.  And sometimes playing is work.  Wargaming's games have paywalls that require you to either pay or play (a lot) to overcome.  Having done this for a couple hundred hours in TWA, and even more in WoWp, I'm worried the game may shut down soon.

 

  Do we have any assurances from Wargaming or any time-table for server operations?

I asked for a self-contained executable that would allow us to at least download our "assets" so we could look at them in the hangar locally, without servers, for that eventuality when we can't log in...

Hell, I love playing me versus a bunch of bots, this game doesn't even need to be online for me to enjoy.

A self-contained executable that would allow for that would be amazing.

There's no any plans to shut down WoWp servers, you may continue to enjoy the game without worries :izmena: We are preparing a Christmas update with some shiny new rewards and new type of event to earn them and planning our work for the coming year.

No offense to the good people like Blindfold who actually work hard on this title and keeping it going, but they won't shut WoWp down any time soon...

Wargaming's biggest, and really only serious competitor is Gaijin's Warthunder... A game that started as an Air-to-Air combat game, and which has since expanded into tanks and ships. Wargaming has to keep its own titles in each of these areas too, especially Gaijin's home turf, so World of Warplanes won't be going anywhere any time soon... Just be glad that the vanity title is actually a good game (under all the game breaking bugs that need to be addressed... please address them, I do like this game... and the less than stellar matchmaking).

Total war is tied to the IP of a different company.  There will be all sorts of specific contractual issues, profit sharing etc involved. 

Different situation than WOWP.

The answer to your question.

 

You're seriously telling me that the data regarding what planes I own can't be cached locally so that if I login with cached credentials I can then zoom and rotate around the 3d models that are composed of locally installed assets?  Is it a data throughput issue?  Replays work with the local engine.  I'm asking to be able to sit at the hangar and look at my assets...actually flying a solo battle with bots is way beyond what I was envisioning.
