Why is "the" being used? 

 

Same thing for Independence day, it should have read "Celebrate Independence Day"?:

Celebrate the Independence Day with World of Warplanes!

 

Victory Day was fine, it's not "Celebrate the Victory Day":

Celebrate Victory Day in the sky of World of Warplanes! Full news text

 

I know...who cares other than the grammar nazi ¯\_(ツ)_/¯  It just looks/sounds weird to me.

Grenoli said on the CIS forum :

There will be separate news about the action. But since it is so interesting, the time of the event is from  July 30 to August 4

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.

The World of Warplane DEV’s have decided to nerf all Premium and Tree aircraft.  Enjoy that now your planes have been downgraded in “Speed” and/or “Maneuverability”.  The update 2.1.8 said nothing about this. Only that the bug fix for the “Master” skilled pilots would be affected. What’s up with that?

I do wish they were more clear about what they were going to do.  As it is, all we can do is speculate.

Not sure if reverting a broken skill to do exactly what it says on the tin is "nerfing all premium and tech tree aircraft". It just appears that the Aerodynamic Expert skill has been fixed and is now properly adding the 40% it says it does rather than displaying 40% but actually adding 100% as in the past.

Speculate? Ahhh… NO! I have checked several of my prem’s and tree plane configurations on speed and maneuverability from yesterday verses today after the update. Without changing anything on my part, planes have been downgraded.

But do your pilots have Aerodynamics Expert on them?  If yes, then the planes have not been nerfed.

 

ADE has been bugged for a long time.

Apologies for the long wait, I was clarifying some details before bringing them to you. 

 

Previously, there was a bug due to which "Aerodynamics Expert" increased the bonuses from equipment twice, both in the hangar and in battle . "Protection Expert" gave extra bonuses as well, but only in the hangar. In update 2.1.8, this issue has been fixed. These skills now give the correct bonuses when mounting equipment. This is not indicated in the patchnotes, tomorrow we will try to add these changes to the article. Thank you very much for your help.
