If your battles end with "only" 10 more minutes on the clock, you're lucky. I've had the new superiority system pretty much kill matches after 2-3 minutes, that's hardly a battle.

And to think we had a topic complaining about the short length of matches up, before 1.5 even entered Public Test and WG just decided to make things worse...:facepalm:

4. BF110-C accuracy has decreased a lot in v1.5 (anyone else noticed?)

 

Large calibre weapons have been nerfed so you can't 'one shot' people anymore.

That is why some planes feel better and some worse. Its come about because the devs don't want people to be able to kill GAAs so easily.

So no point for planes like the Bf110C to exist anymore then. I always preferred the 110B anyway because of its better speed and control.

Oneshotting is always bad and C-6 was oneshotting way too many opponents. For a premium plane, it was too dominating. People seem to forget that premium planes should behave worse than elited standard planes.

 

The poll is lame - where's the option to approve of bomb trap change and not approve of rocket change?

 

I always found bomb trap mechanic to be utterly ridiculous, so I'm very happy to see it gone. Now we need to remove GAA bomb shield as well. Rockets were a bit absurd too, so I'm not that annoyed.

 

I've got one rocketeer this patch, so it's still possible, but it's definitely a lot harder. HF and GAA can stay alive even on precise rocket hits.

Agree that C6 was OP although I did enjoy it myself while it lasted ! However the same change has rendered planes like the Yak 9 and Ki-88 completely pointless. Many people would agree about bomb traps, but the point is bombs effectiveness against ground targets is also reduced, at precisely the same time as armoured targets are introduced which are harder to destroy.

That's all true; I was only talking about specifics. :P It's evident that this patch hasn't been properly tested. There's even a load of new bugs present, shrinking text in player table being among the more funny.

Think i said since several months, that it is too easy to kill a GA - result were some Spitfires in Burma :tongue:. If i would play a fighter with 20mm and lower, i would like this patch ... for a while, the it gets boring. If i would play for instance the 262 series, i would hate this patch. I was never good with these heavy heavys, but at the moment i cant kill a 262, although i chase 3 times over the map. Good is, that i have now a chance to escape, although i am not familiar with these planes.

I'm still trying to figure out what kind of bug could cause that lol

Rocket and bomb nerf i can live with. In T3 to T5 the traps work again, when you get used to the new distance. The survival rate is significant lower. T6 and above is pure luck, made 2 or 3 kills with the 500kg but died with attackers. Rocket nerf or me as a GA-Player is good, because vs a specialist you havent not the slightes Chance, when you fly low. Fly higher and your defense vs "normal" attackers didnt work any more. But in the last 2 month i learned to live with strong rocketeers and i wouldnt mind a switch back.

Are these Flight Academy videos helpful in 1.5?

 

@ 3.29 no more helpful now :trollface:

It's a lot harder for a fighter to kill GAA by shooting rockets into the ground now. Two days ago I launched a salvo from Lagg3 at some Il that exploded almost precisely below him. In 1.4 he would go up in flames, now I did~150 HPdmg. :amazed: Most funny is I didn't score a single crit with that salvo.

Heard it from one WG staff that (he guess) they don't remove the bomb & rocket nerfing! 

Fun is gone :angry: And (if they don't remove nerf) Developers better remove the "Zvonarev" Achievement from the game too. Don't you guys agree with me?

 

The best exciting part in this game is getting your 9th frag + & 3rd rocket frag +
