Was just in a match where the server was so unstable that planes were warping, freezing, flying backwards etc.  Very much like a bermuda triangle effect.  Was happening to both sides as we were able to get off a few chat phrases before it ultimately black screened on us all.

oh crap, this is bad          try running the Check and Repair thingy in the Game Center and tell us if anything changes!?!

 

were there any issues before... wait, did it die due to a new patch?

 

if nothing else works, save out your config files and try a reinstall?

I have found that the really wonky issues seem to be fixed by a periodic deletion and reinstall.  But that's me.

I had a battle tonight where planes stuttered and hyper-drived to the point that most players in that battle couldn't hit anything, and even when they could their hits wouldn't register, so that battle was mostly played by the bots and almost none of us(we were ALL playing for damage in the Personal Ratings Event stage II, I know for a fact that we all were)actually got much of any significant damage dealt to the enemy, and thus that battle was almost entirely pointless for all involved.

Remember, remember the 14th of... June, the day of patch 2.05.  Some say it's great end-game content, some say it's horrible, but history will always recall which it actually was.

I can log into hangar but when trying to enter battle, simple black screen, 3 times, have to force restart.

Yep, happened here too (EU server) sometimes. Packet loss up to 100% and game is just unplayable. Just for a short time ...

does your forced restart mean using Task Mgr?      Does Task Mgr report wowp as a hung process?

 

are you running full screen, borderless windowed or just plain windowed...   play around with all three in the Graphics settings and report back

 

we'll get you going again       just make sure you run Check and Repair first before trying anything else

 

are you using Nvidia?   are the drivers updated?

I have a real gaming rig when I want to fly. This was just killing time while I was away from home. I ain't jackin with win 10 POS.

 

Force restart I could get to and open task manager, but could not alt +tab out of the black screen to desktop. I could see the windows while holding alt+tab, and tab through each but when released right back to black screen, so had to restart from cntl+alt+delete screen.
