WoWP must be dying like never before:

  • Basically free T8 premium (4 days to complete deadline idk if can be extended)
  • Big discounts on other tier's premiums week-after-week
  • Free hangar slots whithin the nation of the week
  • improving low tier planes 

 

I'm not complaining, it just feels like last attempt to milk WoWp and close it down. I'll be very glad if I'm wrong, though.

Yes.  I am running into more and more bot only battles, especially in the early morning hours.  Oh well, maybe Ace Combat 7 will work.  Hard to think it could work worse than this is, presently.

The mechanics of Operation Orders is not new to the game, the difference is in its deadline, but in this case we have an Op Order with higher number of missions than usually that is why the lifetime of an Op Order is longer. 

The March of Nation special is also not new and we had similar special last year, players asked for free slots and discounts and we responded to requests. 

Improvements for low tiers is expected to improve combat dynamics on low tiers. 

 

So I am not sure why you came up to such a conclusion. There's no any plans to close the game.

There are so many bugs in this game every time a new patch is introduced. Right now my screen goes black right in the middle of games and I'm not getting the 30% discount for tier 7 U.S. Planes for March of nations. Why should anyone invest cash in a game that doesn't work right?

Try to clear your cached data if the discount is not displayed. As for the Black Screen, the team is investigating the reasons causing the issue. There are lots of different types of Black Screens (like when launching the game, or when queuing, or in the battle), the next hot fix is likely to fix the Black Screen when launching the game, others issues are in progress.

Let's not forget the seemingly directionless (and completely unnecessary) redesign of systems that worked fine... for absolutely no good reason... causing far more problems than it solved.

 

This is something that was very obviously a key factor in the death of Firefall... it's like WoWP is following a script on killing their own game.

Just for a little perspective here.

 

This happens in all of WG's offerings.  In WOWS, you see very much the same type of behavior as you do in Tanks.  There are small tweaks here and there depending on the exact specifics in each game.  In fact. WOWS is often more generous in their discounts and sales of both Premium and Tech Tree vessels.  Similar sales also occur frequently in WOT.

 

Those two titles are very healthy and prospering so I seriously doubt that offering similar rewards here is the last attempt  to milk WOWP's for every cent they can before shutting the platform down.

I'm guessing we have ~5000 active players based on what I know of the leaderboards in the last few events and me purposely tanking certain periods each time so I was at the bottom of the list as far as I could be and I'd assume that money spent by us averages out to at least 5$ a month per player. Meaning about 25k/month at a bare minimum.

Far too solid of a revenue stream to even -consider- shutting down

Edited to add: Tanking means playing one match in the bracket and then not playing any more in the bracket during the event.

Define 'active' ...

Latest event I easily managed to stay in top 200 (EU server Gold cup) in period II and III. Whenever I came in the danger zone I played some battles to get a higher position and be safe for a while. That means IMHO there are not thousands of active players, just a couple of hundred and a LOT of very casual players. And I doubt whether they spend any money ...

Wonderfull notice, but It is expected that the game will run on Direct11 at some point? ... I think all the evils that WOWP drag, are due to its poor optimization (without detracting from anyone's work of course), perhaps multi thread or something. I think Game run with slow fps in the 90% of players on the entire world and that does not happen with WOT or WOWS, only for WOWP.
