Here are examples of game play for PRE- 1.4

Every player was human with a 2 tier spread ( tier 4-5-6 battle )

 

Here is between 1.4 and 1.6 Still all human Still all human. 

 

Here is after 1.6 and the introduction of BOTS ( time frame may be off ) but I think it was after 1.6 or could be 1,7

This match only had 1 human on each side if I remember correctly

 

I quit between 1.7 until current game design. 

but that basically shows the difference between past and present.

Yeah, that second 1.x version was where I took a long break.

 

and the 2.x version is where a lot of us took a long break.  Its not that I think 2.x wasn't a step in the right direction in some ways, but many of the old players liked the balance of arcade vs tactical air-2-air battles that occurred.   Today the game has largely replaced dog fighting drama of last man standing with far more arcade style point oriented game-play.  I personally think WG could have found a better balance, but they did what they did.

pretty much, best way to look at it is 1.X is one game that was closed down. 2.X is the replacement game, nobody knows if its doing better or worse than the original. Honestly at the end it wasn't hard for anything to do better than 1.X.

 

Since you don't remember how it was, just ignore talk about 1.X and enjoy the only game you know!

 

cheers,

Any version of pre 2.0 was better than the current.  When it was a game !!!     To answer your question though- 2.0 means when the game was ruined.

  Never forget- It took NO skill....to win in an IL

I suggest getting into an active clan. Make a post in the proper forum and see who wants to train you up.  There are basics you need to know to enjoy and therefore stay on WoWP, and we all want you to stay dude.

What clans are active? My old clan isn't, and my flight buddy is awol.
