Sorry to ask this, especially since you made that long list, but does that mean that all the dailies no longer have a win requirement?

Good stuff!  But the Su-10 is not an attack aircraft.  It is a bomber.

Changes will be made only to the listed dailies, as far as I know some dailes that have a win requirement are not included in this list, so a couple of them will still remain :honoring:

Thank you for the notice, we'll fix it. :honoring:

Removing the win requirement from so many of the dailies is much appreciated.  Thank you!

 

Over the last several months I have noticed more and more new faces in battle.   Needless to say, they usually do not know how to play.  Since I have so many battles, I get more than my share of them on my team.

 

Win win!

"We removed the requirement to win the battle for all of these missions"

 

:great:

 The system of filters for aircraft in the Hangar was changed. Players will now be able to do "negative filtering."

 Oh heck yeah! :great:

This should be a massive boon to Hangar management for those of us with high-double/triple digit plane counts.

Eg currently I manually pin my (41) non-Specialist planes to Favourites so that I can easily find planes I need to work on, with the negative option I should be able to find them with a simple 'not' + 'specialist' filter & use Favourites actually for Favourites,

C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.

harpy supply crates but they still haven't given out the hawk supply crates

 

no win requirement only encourages noobs to play high tiers they aren't ready for

 

I wonder why the 1102 gets a special paint scheme but the IL-40P does not

 

4 hour boosters seem like a waste. How many people actually play for 4 hours strait without a break. I play a lot but I still take a break every hour to go for smoke even when using a 2 hour booster.

It won't be an additional button, but just another "state" for each special filter. Basically, filters will have three states (let's take premium planes as an example):

  • "off" - No filter applied, all planes visible
  • "on 1" - First type of filter, only premium planes visible
  • "on 2" - Second type of filter, only non-premium planes visible

 

So yeah, some extra possibilites for navigation in the Hangar :)

Removing some of the win requirement is a plus --plus for the game and its players. :great:

Sometimes going into a battle, with a few new players unfamiliar with the game:unsure: then adding in being low tiered,:facepalm: can be a little frustrating :angry: especially when a " Must Win " is required.

Sometimes these Daily missions send players in all different directions, so with the removal of that requirement, thing will go a lot smoother.:coin:

Optimization of Daily Missions

This is a big plus to the game:great:

At times being tied to a must win can be a little more frustrating when paying.

Sometime those Dailys send players in all different directions, other times they don't know what 'is needed or required to win the round.

Then at times you're (low tiered) and are flying against higher tier seasoned players, which at times, does makes it a lot harder for you team to accomplish a win.

This change does in fact put the game back in the right direction of players satisfaction and enjoyment :medal:

Ty for the positive change in the game. :honoring:

I get so excited every time there is an update - then so disappointed when I read the context of the update.

 

1) No new maps 

2) Changes to maps that give a start advantage.

 

Come on WG - you've been with the same maps since Noah fell off the Ark.

The same old song is killing this game - Boring!!!!

 

Bring back Yellowstone Park - Golden Gate Bridge and the others I cannot recall now.

 

Fixes to crazy stuff are not worth the trouble you guys put yourself through - Let's get real - make more high-tier night maps.

Dump bombers in certain maps.

Make start points equal.

 

Come on ... same old stuff in changing everything but not the game.

Defend missions with a win requirement are a bear. Glad that is gone. I agree with KingWicked101 that content needs an update more than hangar improvements and plane tweaks. I personally miss the Province map. Loved flying through those bridges. Golden Gate would be nice too. Don't agree with night maps. Don't like them. Don't like them with green eggs and ham, don't like them Sam I Am. Maybe you could add Attrition or Conquest to Game mode instead of just Combat Flight or Training.
 
So say we all.

With boosters popped, you could level up every single 9-point pilot.  ;)

Bomber escort is the only mode I've ever managed to get an Ace in.   Because I suck :)

 

I'd love to see it as even a semi-regular feature, though.

Makes one wonder why you fly this game so much.  You could always switch to Grand Theft Whaambulance!
