Pilots, 

We have released the update 2.0.3 as announced in the support page: https://eu.wargaming...support/news/46

Please read on to find out the content of this update:

 

The "Skies of Albion" event is over. All loot crates earned in battles and purchased with tokens have been opened automatically and their contents have been transferred to player accounts. All players who received operation orders will be able to complete their missions within the next 24 hours. 

 

Aircraft

Dornier Do 17 Z, Junkers Ju 88 A, Dornier Do 217 M, Hawker Hurricane I, Hawker Hurricane II, Hawker Tornado aircraft now can be researched. The branch of German medium bombers starts after Focke-Wulf Fw 57, while the branch of British multirole fighters starts after Blackburn Skua.

Bristol Blenheim Mk.IV (early mod.), Douglas A-26B, and Myasishchev RB-17 bombers can no longer be purchased with tokens. With the release of this update, they become Premium aircraft and will be available for purchase with gold.  

 

Maps and Graphics

"Adriatic" and "Arctic" maps have been visually improved.

Adriatic:

  • Added glaciers in the southeast corner around the refinery.
  • Added swimming whales in various places in the water.
  • Reworked the salt lake area, changed the shape of lakes and also reworked how steam is displayed.
  • Added villages in the eastern part of the map.
  • Added a forest near the military base.

Arctic:

  • Improved the level of detail in the coastal area. Added underwater reefs.
  • Reworked the clouds to add a picturesque touch to the map.
  • Added additional objects in the mountains surrounding the Mining Plant.

 

Improvements and Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a critical error of the game client caused by launching the game with an invalid preferences.xml file.  
  • Added an option to clear the embedded browser cache when the “Launch the game and clear its cached data“ option in Wargaming.net Game Center is selected.   
  • Fixed an error causing the pop-up windows with aircraft characteristics not to appear on the aircraft carousel during the respawn waiting time.  
  • Fixed an error that caused the critical damage taken by the previous aircraft that has been destroyed to be displayed on the module scheme of the new aircraft chosen after the respawn.

 

Get Airborne!

Fix in game crashes now please!

 

Add your name to this thread if you are still crashing in game. New patch no fixes of common game breaking bugs.

Well guys... welcome to WG WoWp club lol

 

back in a days... we were screaming for optimisation... we got the new soundpack

... then we were screaming for game balance... we got animated turrets... we were screaming for new team modes... we got bots...

now we ask for something similar to 1.9 and for optimisation... and there You go... we have swimming whales in various places in the water.

What more can we ask for?

Has this update removed the option to change your hangar, I kind of miss the one with the battleship hovering above the water in the background.

But ... can whales be killed? I'm worried about this so much that crashes and bugs lose importance.

Apart few players no1 is asking for anything similar to 1.9,since no1 want a step back, ppl are enjoying 2.* version. But we all asking for optimizations, that's for sure, no1 gives a care about whales...

I'm not getting my x3 first win bonuses on any airplanes today. The x3 icon disappears, as it should, but I get no extra XP for the games. Bug?

I'm glad you do enjoy the new version. What makes you so negative to let others enjoy too? As for steps back or forward for better or for worst, that's purely subjective.

And I mean ADD old mode not REPLACE, what had to been done in first place with conquest in the game.

Swimming whales...great...just what we needed when we are crashing out of the game three times an hour!

 

Seriously, you want 45 Euros per plane (AAA game price)...per single vehicle...but your prospective customers are booted out of the game every 20 minutes?

 

Uh huh...good luck with that.

1.9 is not the point... The point is that they are making the same mistakes that were already made... and that wont bring more new players.

That way, they could leave 1.9...

some observations after 450 battles in version 2.0

- why game client crashes so often?

- why game engine is so badly optimized? on 1500€ desktop PC it cant maintain 60fps all time

- why hangar is loading so long?

- why physics and fly model is so fucked up? old one was ok

- why camera is so fucked up? old one was much better

- why planes have lowered flaps in hangar? that is total bullshit

- why during flight the control surfaces are "shaking" ? that is even bigger bullshit

- why wing "evaporate" when plane fly high speed?

- why i need hold ALT key 90% time of the battle to see important information necessary to making good decisions?

- why target markers appears so late? why i cant configure them like in old version?

- why markers no more show amount of HP of target?

- why game client move my cursor in windows, when game is minimized (and battle is loading)?

- why cursor position is not centered when game is returned from minimized state.

- why there is only one artificial horizon? old game had plenty

- why artificial horizon dont have also "radio altimeter"? barometric is good for climbing, but for ground pounding is useless

- why "free rotation" camera (right click) is changing distance? it is confusing when you need look fast in different way during combat

- why there is an aimbot?? evading maneuvers are useless

 

i forgot one thing:

- why you "combine" radar and map - it is useless. As radar it is too big (according to displayed information) and as map is too small.

 

there is more:

- why we still have "multi tier" matchmaking when in every battle are 50%+ bots? you can generate bots as much as you want

- why on one map (same layout) play T3 and also T8? that is a little bit wide range

- why there is no sound when my plane is on fire? that [edited]"narrator" speak bullshits and not important things

- generally sounds are crap - game cant play more like 3 sounds at time, so you simply dont hear half of sounds 

- why plane experience are no more displayed on right side in "plane table"?

- why you remove advanced mouse control settings? i dont like default behavior

- why you remove advanced camera settings? i hate default behavior

- this new plane stats in percentage is also bullshit - this numbers means nothing

- why you remove "compare planes table" from battle?

I hold it too. Alt UI hides too much info for it to be toggled-on. In 1.X, all the necessary info was in the primary UI and you mostly didn't need to alt at all. Moreover, you could customize it, which you can't now. But hey, "2.0 is simply better", eh? :trollface:
