Big update ?

A couple of funny planes and more personal ratings with more special project equipment …

 

 

 

 

 

It's 2.0.13 to 2.1, I guess it will be a big one.

The switching nation thing (plane, pilot ?) is still unclear to me.

 

 

 

 

 

I guess we will receive something like drop-down menu or "radio buttons" list somewhere in the plane's sub-menus (e.g. in crew setting). The mechanics will be to change the EU plane to another main nation, so you don't need high-tier plane in every nation to adequately train your pilots. There will be no permanent binding, so you can swap the same plane to another main nation when needed. So having only one tier VIII from the EU tech tree can let you train all your regular pilots. I hope the nation swap will be for free.

What we really need is fixes for all the disconnects, program stopped working and assorted black screens ...  and flight chat and mud on your screen at 2500 meters.

 

 

 

 

 

Yes, all of these are extremely annoying. The mud appears only if you fly low, but it shouldn't stay when you go high again.

Well, there's nothing earth-shattering in the patch notes ...

Like every single time. Minimal info. The 2.1 patch will combine all 2.0 to 2.13 patches in a big one, so when reinstalling we don't have to download all of them one by one.

They have been playing under UEFA for years in football, so it's not just WG that considers them at least partly European.

 

Why on earth that would piss anyone off is beyond me.

Even if only this was in the patch it would be a biggie for me.

 

From what I understood from the patch notes and Blindfoid's reply, this new European Premium Tree would be free-for-all training ground. When you select any of the European planes, you can put any of your pilots from any nation for training. European planes will accept everyone.

 

If it is so, it's a big one.

Am I the only player who assigns a pilot/gunner to an aircraft and leaves him there forever?!

You can also put him temporary on a premium plane to take good amounts of XP.

...You can now switch the nation of any European aircraft (including French machines that were available before) to any of the main nations (Germany, U.S.S.R., U.S.A., U.K., or Japan) and back...

This makes me think the planes will be switchable, not just free for all. You assign the plane to a main nation, then you put a suitable pilot. Then you can pick another main nation and pick another pilot. I'm afraid this switches may have credits/gold cost.

​We are not saying it's a part of Europe, it's just kind of a generic notion in the tech tree in-game. Israel takes part in UEFA, for example. It just would be strange if  we call it "Europe and Israel".

You can switch it to any other nation then switch it back and again and again. Switching to another nation costs your some credits, switching back to Euro nation is free.

Yep, I guessed it in the first place. Then blindfoid commented something that made me take this assumption, and in the meantime he edited his reply to "you are right". So I guess this is it.

So let's make this clear once and for all (waiting an hour to check it in-game is an eternity :teethhappy:).

 

I would like to use my American or UK aces pilots to fly, say, French premiums for a game or two, and then go back. Will it be possible?

You need to switch your Frenchman to USA or UK nation, put your Ace pilot in it, play some awesome battles and then you can send your plane back to Europe :)

Absolutely.  I agree with this, but I fear our friends are about to get warnings for using something other than English in this forum, tant pis.

Thank you so very much. I like this thingy!

 

And no, they will not go back to Europe. Spoils of war :izmena:

I'm still not clear.  It appears this is something other than "take your French pilot out of your French aircraft and put him in the barracks, then grab a pilot of your choice from another nation and put him in your French aircraft".  I'm sure I'll work it out though.

Apart from the odd excellent premium, why would you ever buy ones belonging to the major nations now?

Yep, it was possible more than an hour ago, but you can't enter the game server.
