asking for a friend, because it surely seems to me to be a low-skill high-production kill machine

 

and premiums like this have always been a 'problem' for FTP games

 

throw the useless rockets in the trash, and just melt down folks who didn't see you until it's too late

 

 but it's not a strong carry plane, not in my hands

 

so...  maybe/probably we'll sneak past the gates of the haunted mansion unharmed?

Seems on-par or sub-par to its brethren in the T8 HF club. Middle of the road, as it were. I don't think there's going to be an issue, especially given how long it went through testing.

I think it depends on the stats the plane develops.  I think it's pretty fun, but it doesn't make me want to go out and own the skies like the Do-335 does.  It's fast, but not blisteringly fast.  I like the fact that it has the 14 MGs of firehose death, and that it just evaporates bombers and GAA, but I don't seek it for regular play. 

Stats will make or break this plane over time.  I have an idea of how to make it preferred over my Pancake, but for now, if I really need to own a map with an American HF, I use the P-38F, the Pankcake, or the F2H.

It's bizarre that so many players have it Spec'd already

Since when do premiums get nerfed?

 


Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is on par with my WinRate. Hit or Miss.

Serious?  I still cry about what they've done to my RB-17.  Patch notes from back when discuss that butchery  ..... er, 'adjustment'.

To be fair, the RB-17 needed the nerf. Its still a great bomber and I can't wait to get mine Specialized but back then winning against a double RB-17 flight was nearly impossible.

 

Also, I don't think the P-82B is going to get nerfed. As mentioned - the Vampire is still there and so is the Horten, the Pfeil and the Tu-10. The plane isn't exceptional in any way until its fully Specialized and with Ultimate gear. As Rei covered in his review of the thing - without a full loadout of equipment, its merely "good" and only become really powerful after a ton of investment. Compared to other planes at tier 8, the Twin Mustang is simply a strong airplane, not something really needing a nerf

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

There used to be a rule "back in the day" that premium tanks/planes/ships cannot be nerfed due to players investing $. RB-17 public "rebalance" and DO-335 hidden accuracy nerf show otherwise.

 

But WG can nerf anything in WOWP because community is so small and so few youtubers/streamers cover this "game" that at this point they can pull the plug and barely anyone would notice.

Yeah man, like, the Do took a bit hit to accuracy ever since I started playing it.

 

Or... it could be that I cannot hit the broad side of a barn with any pixel plane.  I dunno, I am so potato, if they hit me with an accuracy nerf, it's just like another day in paradise for me. 

 

Only way I would notice an accuracy nerf is if my plane started pummeling itself.  Even then...

Stop talking about this. Self-fulfilling prophecy and all that.  :ohmy:

Too late for that.  
If there was a stealth nerf, it already happened.

But ... this is the first i heard about it. And I really like the Pfeil. So if anyone knows anything about this unsavory rumor ...

I never noticed anything flaky about the accuracy of the guns on this plane.  The MK103 still reaches out and touches folks from a km away, so I'm good with that.  With long barrels, 1200m.  So nice.  :)
