I have had a frozen hangar requiring a computer reboot, 3 EQoD's and a couple of booted from game after battle tonight.   Sporadic high ping and lag, also.  It got me wondering about this question with my soon-to-be 72nd birthday looming in 3 weeks and the ridiculous length of time some of these problems have existed for.  The question is, 'Will I stay on the green side of the grass long enough to see something fixed?'

Hehe, I put in my vote and saw where the 100% votes were. 

 

Face it, you are cursed.  I get the endless queue like one out of every 100+ battles.  

 

I just think it's your ISP.  We have a big Comcast presence here and yet AT&T has been running fiber like crazy all around us (probably more for 5G, but still, a lot of ads in the mail).  If you have competition, you get better internet.  Not sure where you call home, but I betcha you have just one player in the area and they aren't doing right by you and your neighbors.

 

That, or...

I guess I should have added 'Unable to log in to clan page' as another one but I had forgotten about that one.  Until, of course, I was unable to log in to clan page yet again.  This is happening to me about once every 10 days or so and lasts for around three days at a time.  sigh

Constant AA impact audio in Spectator mode.

Random missing ground target indicators.

Bomber Seeking Missile Heavy bots.

Random flak/AA hits while literally multiple kilometers from the nearest thing that could potentially hit you.

Flak RNG sometimes causing all flak to burst in a tight line immediately on approach instead of spaced apart.

Non-registering derp/sniper gun hits that just disappear.

ADA becoming near-invincible at Squall Line.

Excessive bad rolls (2,6,12,16) on Calibration, system seems to ensure same $$$ spent rather than actual Random rolls.

RNG on bot tailgunners with about 80% chance of engine/pilot crit on their first hit.

Bot tailgunners being invulnerable to crits.

Random failure of tailgunner firing when switching to/from tailgunner view.

Excessive tailgunner arc blocking on a bunch of planes while others with similar gun/tail config get none. (would be perhaps acceptable if it was on planes with excessively strong tailgunners but its the already weak that get excessive blocking)

Tailgunner immediately returning aim towards centre-rear the instant a target leaves its fire zone/range regardless of where the manual aim point is.

 

All these & more.

Many may infact be intentional design decisions & perhaps acceptable if thats the case but absent documentation of that I presume them to be bugs.

Funny how someone posted in the thread how they voted & their post got deleted.

Must have been breaking one of those unwritten rules.

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.

Hmm... So far with the Steam version of WoWP installed in my Windows 10 Pro running on an 8 core Intel cpu with 16 GB ram and Nvidia gpu:

 

1. EQoD (Endless Queue of Death) = Never had this problem.

2. Booted out of game after battleNever had this problem.

3. Excessive lag and ping = This is an Internet problem that WG has no control over and can't fix. You need a better ISP with lower latency.

    (Also, make sure you are hardwired into your wifi router. Running games over wireless you are just begging for more timing problems.)

4. Frozen hangar requiring reboot = Very rarely. Pressing {Ctrl}{Alt}{Del} and shutting down WoWP from the Task Manager always works for me.

5. Some other bug = I've seen the invisible plane bug but only super rarely so it's not an issue for me.

6. Nuttin' Honey! You're doomed! = This is the norm for playing WoWP. Sadly, get used to it or get out as WG doesn't seen to care about fixing/improving this game.

7. The sometimes absolutely crazy MM. = Replace "sometimes" with "most of the time". The MM is absolutely the worst at assigning bots to each side. It is just pure random plane picking of each class with no regard to plane tier or quality so most battles are decided before they start because one side's bots thoroughly dominate the other bots. When in such a lopsided battle (easily more than 50% of the time) and you are assigned to the inferior bot team you might as well just grind for xp or work on completing a daily as you can't just "push harder" and win (The stupid radio announcer is dead wrong about that). It's nigh impossible to overcome the bot imbalance. Fixing the MM should be of the highest priority for WG but since everyone has been complaining about it for years we're doomed and are stuck with Nuttin' Honey. Kellogg's stopped making it so WG should also stop doing nothing and fix the MM.

Just for kicks and giggles, you might try the little blue pill.  

 

Oh wait, just read your real downer post.  Hang tight.  My father is 91 and he, well, hell, now that I think of it, just ship me off on an iceberg when I hit 78.
