More planes? Thats nice for some but i only have one teir 10 so far. so im not pressed too much.


Game Modes:
All map layouts for the Attrition, Invasion, and Bomber Escort battle modes have been added to the training room.  

 saturday night fights are gonna be LIT!


INTERFACE

Added more options to the stat panel in the Hangar. Now the panel correctly shows how the Crew skills affect the aircraft's performance. By hovering the mouse over different modules, you can see how the performance will be changed if they are installed. Besides, the pop-up hints were added that explain the sources and values of the effects that influence an aircraft's stats.

 

 




 

Controls:

  • Gamepad support restored. 

    Alert the Press! Steam use might even pick back up!

 

Equipment

New equipment added only for the Period III aircraft — G-Suit. It's installed in the cockpit slot and increases an aircraft's maneuverability at high speed while sacrificing the pilot's resistance to critical damage. This equipment can be purchased using credits in the game client.

G-Suit — maneuverability at high speed +6–14%, pilot's resistance to injuries –3–10%. Bonus characteristics: maneuverability in pitch +0.5%, accuracy when firing at moving targets +5%, maneuverability in pitch +1%, maximum altitude +4%, maneuverability at high speed +3%, maximum altitude +6%. 

Neat. My High altitude fighter pilots will be pleased as punch.
 

Thanks, WG! :great: 

 


 


Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is much like my WinRate. Hit or Miss.
Usually I start on the right track and then a make a weird left turn and get lost in the weeds ... 
And yet it doesn't stop me from speculation.

Light Fighters:   XP-31, Model 81A-1, P-40, P-51A, P-39N-1, XF15C, DH.100 F1, Fw 56, He 112, Bf 109 B / E / E-3 / F, Me 209 v4 / A, Me P.1092, I-17
Multi-Roles: Type 91, F11C-2, F4F, P-26, P-47B, Fw 190 A-1 / A-5 / D, I- 5 / 15 / 16(e)(l)

Heavy Fighters: P-38 F/J,  XP-58, Beaufighter,  Bf 110 C-6, Me 410, Do 335 A-1, Me 262, Tu-1, SE 100,

Attack Aircraft: Hs 123, Ha 137, Hs 129 A, Ju 87 G, Me 265, Me 1099 B-2
Bombers: Do 17 Z, He 111 H2, Pe-2, Do 217 M

I just swapped out my special project  UK sights on my XF-90 for the G-suit...

Holy....

Ummm... Wow. I can now kinda sorta maneuver when doing 745 mph which is making up for the loss in pure aim as I'm still running MM1/2

Love the multi-nation tree now bring us the following for it

 

Romania - IAR 80/81

Sweden - FFVs J22

Finland - VL Myrsky II

Netherlands - Anything

 

I could go on listing but I'll restrain myself

 

Also tried the possible workaround for chat no dice. :-(

Will the premium tree planes released with this lot make it to the cash store Friday?  I really don't want to burn down my gold reserves right now.

 

They will be surely added to the Premium Shop, but a little bit later. For some time they will be available only for purchasing using gold.

2. We are not saying it's a part of Europe, it's just kind of a generic notion in the tech tree in-game. Israel takes part in UEFA, for example. It just would be strange if  we call it "Europe and Israel". 

 

ah darn it...    just when we've achieved total peace in the Middle East, you guys toss a molotov cocktail into the street

Call it the Multi-National Tree & China can be folded into it while not running into any 'why do you consider Israel part of Europe' issues.

The fact that you can change nations makes a lot of sense to me. I was never interested in French or Chinese because I wouldn't be able to train pilots for any tech tree aircraft. Now I can pop in my German GA crew into the SE100 & go clubin' like it was Studio 54. No need to get hung up on the name, Sheesh!

but it's so strange, right?    Was anyone asking for this?     


How did this discussion even get started around the conference table?    Does it benefit WG somehow?

I did, actually.

Literally asked for it in several posts. (No aggro or sarcasm in tone there; just surprise)

Generally atmosphere seems more clear, maybe more realistic but not necessarily an improvement IMO.

Was there a bug with the atmosphere initially & hotfix fixed it?

Atmosphere was feeling very sparse with very long distance before fading out at horizon & not much clouds.

Playing today there seems to be more normal distance haze & lots of bits of cloud on the maps? Which look very nice btw :)

That is insulting.  You may keep my one day of premium time for yourself.  The numerous bugs have ruined numerous battles.  Thanks but no thanks.

It's a compensation for the particular issue which caused XP and/or credits not being added after battle. For any other issues please contact the Customer Support.
