The World of Warplanes development plans for 2019 are a hot topic, because we've been a bit vague about them. It's time for more details.

Disappointing that the so called 'Small Nations' won't be able to flesh out their own researchable trees. I get it for nations like Romania, Czechoslovakia and China but you're still going to lump in France with them? I hope that they get properly represented sooner rather than later WeeGee! Also, the P-82 staying premium raises an eyebrow, but mostly because I felt that they never needed to have a combined USN/ USA(A)F HF tree but that's just my opinion and am sill glad it's coming into the game one way or another.

 

Perhaps Blindfold or someone can weigh in on this for me:

To the best of your knowledge, has Kviv or WG as a whole considered paywalling nations or at least whole researchable lines of content in any of their games? Call me cynical but when you get down to the 'Small Nations' whether it's Ships, Tanks, or whathaveyou especially when they may only be able to create a partial line or barely eek out a single complete line of content I can completely understand if the Dev's felt that such content would be considered 'gated' if you will so that only the most passionate player base would purchase access to that content. Such a move would, IMO be abhorrent as a gamer but understandable from a purely business perspective.

So no 64x-bit client or 4k support for newer computers? Any new maps (RU=Cards)?  Simpilier battle map modes?

 Players can also expect new in-game and partner activities. 

 

Outside more Iron Maiden, what other activities are you planning? This is very vague statement.

If this year is dedicated to the bomber class quit nerfing them.  So far we have had nerfs to bomb accuracy, bomb damage, turrets and we lost AA protection when we lost concealing livery.  Not to mention you boosted AA damage and accuracy giving AA god like reaction time to aircraft movements.  

 

Yeah, dedicated to the bomber all right....

Im glad to see more planes coming but come on War Gaming do we really need another Me-109 in Avia S-199 there are so many other small nation planes that could have been used...

 

Romanian IAR 80/81

Finalnd VL Myrsky I, II, and III

Yugoslavia Rogozarski IK-3, Ikarus S-49

Netherlands Fokker G.I, Fokker D.XXIII and the  Fokker bombers T.V and T.IX

 

And the Saab 21R from Sweden... Why not the normal Saab 21 (298 built), or the Saab 18 (245 built) or the FFVS J22 (198 built) at least these planes were built in way more numbers.

Yes, the article states "We aren't disclosing the two top models yet. Suffice it to say that they are not your regular aircraft, although they indeed existed and flew in real life. We believe the aviation history enthusiasts will easily guess what we're talking about."

 

The B-50 and B-52 are possible choices, although WG may surprise us.

WoT (13): E 100, Jagdpanzer E 100, E 50 M, G.W. E 100, Object 140, IS-7, Batignolles-Châtillon 25 t, AMX 50 B, AMX 50 Foch B, AMX 50 Foch (155), AMX 13 105, T57, T110E5

WoWP (11): F-86A, XF-90, F7U, IL-40P, Yak-30, Su-10, Me 262 III, Me P.1102 B, Me P.1101, EF 131, Swift

I want a transfer to the new ASIA server so I can enjoy the premium time and free XP links. When will that happen. 

Waiting patiently for the flight path to ASIA to be announced so all my accounts can be linked

Can we get some real new airplanes, not failures like the S-199 ??

 

Constructed in Czechoslovakia, with parts and plans left over from Luftwaffe aircraft production, the aircraft had numerous problems and was generally unpopular with its pilots.

 

The Israeli's ditched it as soon as they could ...

Get rid of specialization already.  Geeesh.. why keep slopping that garbage all over.  Just because you stick a bow on it doesn't make it smell any better.  Specialization hoses up the balance of the game, WG isn't even considering specialization in MM, and the only folks who like it are the ones who spam Spits with calibration and stats lottery winning gear.  For most planes it really offers nothing.

 

Also locking planes behind recruitment walls?  Talk about a stab to the face.  Not even WoT or WoWS does this.

 

I don't think you all are thinking some of this WoWS stuff you are doing through very well.

 

How about making ENERGY management matter again?  How about actually making planes bleed speed in tight turns again?  Ya know, make BnZ a thing again?

I cannot speak on behalf of other titles, but when it comes to WoWp and Small Nations there're no plans to create paywalling nations or lines.

Yes, sure. We are planning to continue the USA bomber line this year. I would expect new USA bombers this autumn.

As it was answered earlier, at the current moment we are not planning to introduce 64x-bit client. You can expect new map layouts for sure, also a new PvP mode if everything goes as expected. 

As soon as everything is discussed and approved news about other collaboration may appear if any.

All information about account transfer conditions will be announced first and foremost on the Japanese official site.

Sure they did.   WOT had a unique tier 8 gift as part of its recruitment program, for years, the Т95Е2.    The only way to get it was recruiting someone.   Unfortunately, it was not a good tank, and also didn't earn bonus credits   (it was a gift tank, not a prem tank)

Tanks recently changed its recruitment program to one where you can choose a tier 8 prem from a changing list of choices.

The B-36 and B-47 could be very strong contenders. Might even see a B-58 or B-66. . .

I'm so sorry

we don't need more planes

we need a better game


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.

Well, as much as I like and want more new planes, I would have to agree. At the very least, huge numbers of bug fixes and a way to make them permanent needs to be a higher priority than new planes, although separate teams do each and they can do both at the same time. 

An average player with an average goal: greatness, someday. Today, mediocrity will have to suffice. But no matter, I will always play to the best of my ability, and I will always strive to make the best of my ability just that little bit stronger and better.
