What is it about these maps to cause them to reduce the chance of getting them?  What do they have in common?

Without looking it up, I'd say it was probably the maps with a lower number of cap zones.

 

The most exciting part of this is that now Cold Peak is a T10 map.  As it should have always been, IMO.

It does look like it is mostly 3 cap maps being reduced in frequency.  Thankfully that horrible asymmetrical Archipelago map (Decisive Blow) is being reduced by 50%!  Many of those Cold Peak maps really sucked if you were in a turny light fighter.  My Zeros aren't going to miss flying on those maps :)

Is this it then? No high resolution model updates of existing planes? No new nations or branches, no real rebalancing? No UI improvement, no new maps, no weather? No crew graphics upgrade or customization? No clan wars? Definitely no black screen fix. No even a gold premium; Just a new "reward" premium plane for way too many tokens every couple of months.

 

How much will it cost in tokens for those of us without the time to commit a million hours to grind for it? It's a tier 7 plane so... $80? $100? We will see.

How about some new Tech Tree planes?

 

There are several U.S. bombers not yet in the game, like the famous B-24 Liberator and the B-25 Mitchell. The famous British Lancaster and Halifax are also notably missing.  There are Japanese bombers that are also missing from the game.

 

How about it World of Warplanes?

they had nothing better to do!!!!

Please note that the one I hate the most is indirectly going to out there more, Northern Bridgehead.

Also I have not seen Old Fortress in a regular battle since about 5 years, I like that map and yes I do fly period 1

This update seems to have brought back an old bug that I haven't seen in a long time.  Hit the battle button and launch normally but the battle never really starts.  Then, after a while, you find yourself back on the tarmac staring at the empty spot where your plane should be.  Had this happen twice in a row now.  One guy said it was his 3rd time in a row.

50% lower chance:

Arctic Region: Fire and Ice - 3 sector with a military base

Archipelago: Decisive Blow - the asymmetrical map everyone hates

Peripheral Mission: Shock Wave - 3 sector with 2 military bases

Scorching Sands: Desert Wind - 3 sector with 2 military bases

 

30% lower chance:

Sea Gate: Siege - 3 sector with 2 air strips

Arctic Region: Ancient Hills - 3 sector all garrisons

Arctic Region: Alarming News - 3 sector with a com center

Old Fortress: Enemy at the Gates - 3 sector with 2 air strips

Old Fortress: Danger Zone - 4 sector with 2 air strips

Archipelago: Retaliation - 3 sector with 2 com centers

Peripheral Mission: Harsh Times - 3 sector with an air base

Scorching Sands: Leading Edge - 3 sector with a mining plant

Cold Peak: Gem of the Mountain - Someone forgot this map was removed (Doesn't appear in training room so I think we're safe)

 

 

Arctic Region: Bitter Expanse (3 sector with a mining plant) should be added to this list

Yhat implies to me that they are negating (somewhat) the effect of the single most important base on the maps, the Military Base.  And, to a lesser extent the Mines and Communication Centers.

 

I believe the result of these changes will reduce the effectiveness of the GAAs and the Bombers.

Just tried to play a battle with 4 players and the battle didnt load.  It's like the bug where it's a 1v1 and the other player quits on you so the battle kicks you out and locks your plane for 12 minutes.

Apologies for the inconveniences. The team is still working on the problem. I can recommend avoiding battles on Tier VI-VIII aircraft, other Tier battles seem to work fine. We suppose that there's an issue with the Junkers Ju 288 A, which seems to crash the battles. 

 

UPD

The team is preparing a fix - basically a rebuilt patch, as soon as it is ready it will be available for download. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you for your continued patience, we are doing our best to solve these problems.

Not tokens, certificates. Real money, we can't use our gold or tokens for certificates. For another Spitfire of which the only one I personally like to fly is the 1BM with Scarr as pilot. I  love this game but give us a little more.

In addition to not loading battles, my game will not load several planes in hangar, and if you click on them, no other planes will load after that. Also, the Sea Hawk is missing it's body (both on the hangar and in battle). Planes that break the hangar (and maybe break battles):

  1.  JU86E
  2. Hurricane I
  3. F5F
  4. B-17D
  5. Typhoon
  6. Ju-88
  7. B-32
  8. XFY-1 (Pogo)

 

I don't know if anyone else has noticed this, but another "benefit" of the update may be that the odds of successful Calibration of Equipment are far lower than they had been. Thanks Wargaming!

I would like to see in a future update that while Flight groups are good it should be restricted so that when any 2 players join together in a flight they should not be allowed to fly the same planes.  There are players that are teaming up with specialist planes that are the same and they dominate every battle their in. Please put a stop to it.  I just think it would make play more fair.

Spitfire IX has holes in the wings now. Otherwise, the patch for the patch worked as intended.
