SO what are your goals within the realm of playing World of Warplanes.

Are you a plane collector and just like to fly around winning.

Do you just want to have fun

Is this how you get your " I wanted to be a pilot " out of your system.

Are you trying to over come your fear of flying.

You just want to be an online bully and beat people up.

 

Tell us your goals and let Wargaming and forum dwellers know you on a more personal level.

I signed up to fly P-38s.

 

Generally, try to learn how to do well in the plane that I'm in, and have fun doing it.  (sometimes incompatible goals, Thunderbolt I'm looking at you. . .  )

I just want to farm ground targets.

I love flying around and blowing up stuff.

Honestly, I play this game because it helps keep me in check. I'm studying to be a pastor and it's helpful having something challenging in my life to expose when I have the wrong attitude. When I find myself getting angry or frustrated in a match, that serves as a great wake up call that I need to get over myself. When "a game" gets under my skin, I realize that I need to be humble and thankful instead. I literally have a notecard by my computer screen with a reminder: "Love the LORD and love my neighbor".

 

Oh, yeah, and I, uh, also... enjoy the game. There's an interesting variety of planes and playstyles. The Conquest game mode is fun. I like how each class can contribute and carry a team to victory.

I signed up years ago in Alpha testing.

I wanted to try a flight game.

Was accepted during closed beta.

Since then it was all about learning every plane and pushing them out of the box into unorthodox styles.

I took a long break after 1.8 due to inability to adapt to the " new " game. More attitude wise than anything.

After returning to 2.0something something.

The new goal other than finishing daily missions is to having fun. 

Enjoy learning the new way this game is winnable.

I also enjoy pushing the envelope with what these planes can do to win or carry a match.

I am still a little gun shy with the bombers but I am getting there.

 

I also enjoy making video's long walks on the beach candle light dinners...oh wait wrong site, nvm

Long ago, I came over from Tanks.  Seemed like a chill group, and the game was more about flying and shooting, and less about mission set up and load out, then navigation to target area, etc., like all the other combat flight sims I had played.

I didn't have any goals, and still don't.  I fly for tokens, to escort my clan mates' bombers, to learn a new play style with a different plane, to challenge myself to doing well in a non-meta plane, or fly a meta plane in a different way.

Mostly, just for my own amusement.

Because I'm actually decently good at it. Its nice not to be at the bottom of the food chain like in Tanks or Ships (or That Other Plane Game). I could probably get decent at That Other Plane Game if I committed as much time to it as I did Warplanes but why bother?

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

no idea what my personal goals are, really        but it's a great idea for a topic, LT

 

my dad flew a c-47 in the south pacific, so i've always been excited by ww2 prop planes      i've had my private ticket for almost 40 years, but it doesn't really help in-game

 

other guys my age play golf, but i don't have any interest in that     WG, i love the strategy and the tactics in-game, and how sometimes things are unpredictable    ty, WG

 

i'll tell you what is the most enjoyable part for me...   it's the human interaction on our clan's teamspeak and on Discord during SNL

 

and...  here in the forum      it's a great stress free safe place on the generally lawless internet

At first, mine gold for Tanks and ended up fully converting from tanker to pilot...I foudn that Tanks and Ships proved not my style anymore...and with Ships going south I uninstalled it for more space but still keep Tanks because I can still use some things I got from Planes (gold and free EXP) on it if I wanted to.

 

Now? Collect red boxes and see if I'd ever get that elusive 10,000 gold from it......and keeping watch on Asia cluster of Planes....



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

I like winning, collecting planes that I like, and ruining someone elses day by reminding them that in real life you either put in effort or you suck and life doesnt give you a medal for participation.

I was obsessed with flying when I was a kid but being near sighted and 6-4 and 300 pounds means no flying for you. so instead I just enjoy this. I do wish it was more historically accurate but since its fun I give it a pass.

about all the injustices in the world

and attribute all the problems we face

to, WGing and the 2.0 decision to suck

thanks WG for Murder Hornets

thanks WG for Covid19

thanks WG for the last liquor tax in Tennessee

and my #2 cylinder misfire and putting on the firewall side

Good day all

ABC over and out

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.

I think you play WOWP to be "Mr. Forum comment on every post" or a poor man's Mark Twain who drinks regular Budweiser with ice in a plastic cup while reading your digital version of Reader's Digest on a 2012 Lenovo tablet that was purchased from Walmart as an open box special...But that's just me :) haha

Nice to hear an actual question tho and not a complaint.  

I started playing for the Bf 109 & the Me 262. Was expecting it to be as tough as WOT but with all the bots I discovered I could actually win games. The 262 was everything I had hoped for but I'm mostly on cruise control these days. Just trying to enjoy it while the game's servers are still running.

Personal goals: 

1. Enjoyment.

2. Enjoyment.

3.  When I am in a match, I give my all to win.  When I win, I feel good for a few moments.  When I lose, it is over, I do not look at win percentage, stats, damage, kill ratio, anything like that.  I look at what I am going to enjoy flying next.

 

I fly for ENJOYMENT, and if I improve as I learn, the stats take care of themselves FOR OTHER PEOPLE to look at, those who are interested in that kinda thing.

 

WBB

 

BamBaLam:  I AM looking at personal points as I bought the missions for that kinda thing.

 

Betty'sChild:  I do respect the other reasons for flying this game, I did not intend to come across as against ANY other reason, in case a bootie gets pained.

I confess. I missed the forums and had to play 10 games.

The only reason I am here.

I'm here because I can't stand people. This game offers bots for most of the game. If they had a bot only mode, I would play it. 

 

I'm here because playing WOT and WOWS now utterly sucks because your team loses and you get smashed because everyone else on your team is garbage. 

 

The same thing happens here but now I just bail on a bunch of worthless fails on my team. And there are so many bots that are far better than players are that it better balances out all the other losers.

 

I really don't care what other people think. I learned long ago that most people are psychotic or Neurotic.

 

I'm here because they offer OP things because Russians don't care about game balance, being fair, or anything decent. Instead, they only care about having an advantage over others and so they made games where people can buy or earn that advantage and then squash other moronic people into dust. That's why I am here. I just can't stand when they game puts so many losers on my side all the time. 
 

I'm here because I get to smash other people with OP things and watch them rage about the balance of the game when they always knew the game was never balanced. They are simply really here for the same reason I am, because it's unbalanced. They are just too mentally weak and unbalanced themselves to admit why they are really here. Why would anyone play a game where you face higher tier, op paid for players who most likely paid good money to have a major advantage over you? LOL. It's because those people want to be that guy. They want this in life as well as in the game, but they will accept it if it's just in the game. 

 

People get to feel powerful here, especially over others. They get to feel that they can take on anything if they have the OP thing or the major advantage in the fights they chose to take. Russian games mimic reality and So the real reason I am here is because i don't like other people, want to feel powerful, and enjoy beating down losers, and I can't stand 90% of people anyway.
