One wonders why the RNG is wacked at times in WoWP. I mean the damage done by planes gunnery, flak damage, bot methodology, and critical hits. However, the odds are not in favor with the WoWP players since none of those statistics are published unlike the WG counter part of WoWS.

Granted I may be on the side of fear because WoWP information is not transparent in statistics outside of medals. Nothing is published by the amount of players playing, the time for an average match (sortie), or even the Average W/R.

Aircraft #3 as a bad word? I guess we know now how this reinforced for WoWP being supported by WG.

 

Sometimes playing WoWP its a coin flip in my opinion. 


 

 

Hopefully not like this example. All of my WoWP perspective is based on the amount of facts I see, along with my experience from game play. If the game play is weak, then the bias towards WoWP will be rated poor by me. To change this will take significant bold changes from what WoWP is today.

Going to take a look at this, save my spot. (After I finish listening to the Rubberband Man)

If you play strictly "random solo", I agree. It is a "coin flip".

wg has a simple set of russian rules:

heads wg wins

tails you lose


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.

I think they added those things because there were a lot of crybabies that demanded them.

 

Now, the crybabies are on the other side.

 

I will say this - I did very much hate the long queue times, and the ridiculous seal-clubbing and stat-padding of the 1.x version.

LOL, just about right.  Want a T5 battle?  Cool, ten minute wait time, sir.  Would you like to sit in the bar?

 

OK, I don't like ten minutes.  Let's try T1.  Hmmm, 3 minutes.  OK.

 

HOLY CRUD - I see a bunch of guys that I know have T9+ planes, and sure enough, WHAM.

 

Seal clubbed.  :)
