Hello everyone,

 

Hope you all are fine and healthy after this Convid-19 situation we had as whole. I havent been active for a while both in the foroums and  the game and the main reason is that i lost interest in the game, not because i woke up one day and i disliked it ever since, but because this game hasnt seen any new content since the tier 10 bomber event back in June 2019. I knew that the WoWp dev team couldnt deliver their promises for their 2019 roadmap, not becaue they arent capable, but because the content promised was too much for the size of the team... Now i am not sure if there is a dev team behind the game at all!! If so, what are they working on?? Does WG gave up on the game? If someone knows, please share it with me. (Though i would love from someone-like Blindfold (since no one else seems to be there)- tell me since by that point its not just speculation or rumor, but a fact.)

People reported that Grenoli talked about a Marathon this summer, possibly June
Tho most of us are expecting the reward to be the new Beaufighter or the I-21

I'm satisfied with that situation. The stability of the system has been improved. That is lots of hard work probably. I got my own events while climbing up the tech tree. The two planes, the Vampire and the Curtis even players like me can reach and there are lots of opportunities for bonus points or crates. It's funny when there are events many complains about something and when there are no events some are complaining too. I think it is essential to keep the system in a stable mode. The player base is growing ...

I hope so, i havent played for 2-3 months but i have supported the game more than enough the past year...i only hope that they are not jumping ship and just wait for the game to decline completely! Again the major issue this game has is engine stability but the content is what kept people like me coming back and wanting more. The first half of 2019 was a dream come true in terms of content, maybe little too much but it was the best we had for years. They could also put featured modes rotating during the weekend (like bomb escort that is a huge bump in in-game income). I only hope that this isnt the end of Wolrd of Warplanes!!

Again, for the millionth time: this game is a part of an original boast "we will have tanks, planes and ships!".

 

Planes will exist as long as the Tanks bring money. Ships earn too. So we take piggy back on our rich relatives. For this they have the skeleton crew who maintains the game - kudos guy(s), you indeed fixed most of the annoying graphic / joystick bugs, now only for those server issues...

 

When Tanks die, Ships and Planes are gone too. Not before.

Exactly!

 

Giving the black sheep (planes) the kiss of death, will make players in the other two games wonder: "when is it our turn...?" (not "if...")

IMO that is - from a business perspective - common logic.

The only add I want is a clan mode. For me it was a horrible time almost with unbalanced games and lots of bugs. The worst thing of all was the compulsively participation at some events. I want changes that last, not for a week or sth. This application is obviously not profitable enough to create technical  complex changes for such a short time. I would like to see WoW  becoming a part of one big war application with ships, tanks and planes one day. Therefore wee need a bigger player base and its growing since the technical issues were reduced. I mean chasing tanks with a Stuka would be great or flying a torpedo bomber that starts from an aircraft carrier.

to the Op be careful for what you wish for...

 

For me one of the main attractions of this game is the lack of updates, or new content. look at all the meddling and tomfoolery that is WOT and WOW's

 

I'm glad Wargaming didnt mess it up in the same way otherwise we would have IS3A planes with auto reoalding bombers and full auto heat seakers that you could only get by "boxes"

 

Although im going to slightly contradict myself now

I do understand that there is a bit of a lack of content and being a picky SOB I'm not that enamored with many of the planes and as a result have only researched a handful of lines.

 

But having said that I did the same in Ships and tanks ships I only enjoyed DD (destroyers)  and tanks I only liked Assault tank destroyers. Come to think of it nearly every game I play i find 80% of the content uninspiring.

 

For instance my recent foray into Destiny 2 I found the rifle I liked and didn't even bother researching anymore

 

  I got a very lucky god roll and kicked arse. Whilst everyone else was scrambling around to pick up some hideous skull infested revulsion inspired by Lemmy from Motorhead.

 

 

For me looks matter, :)

This.

 

"Oh we want moar, we want new!!!"... OK, have these two new ultra bombers Tier 10 - which basically completely broke tiers 9-10.

 

No, thank you.

If this was WOT you'd be able to "win" one from a box with 5 second reload and 2km turrets

Besides these two imba af bomber monstrosities at tier 10, this was a fantastic year for WoWP. With whatever people they have left, they meticulously cleaned up all the annoying bugs, disappearing targets, black screens and whatnot, and made this very playable. The problem with server stays, but it's for the top management to solve. So for me, bravo guys!

You say broke, I say fixed. Bombers are making heavy fighters and high altitude fighters relevant, and game isn't revolving around dog-fighting light fighters.

Yes, bringing in bombers was fantastic indeed. Gave a third dimension, altitude, and only then it stopped being b*tt sniffing contest of LF. We agree there 100%.

 

My only complaint is those two OP's at tier 10.

Dissapearing targets are still there, I'm taking it for granted I won't be seeing GT markers on the first sector I approach... Third dimension was there before the bombers, it was mostly players playing low altitude dogfights with any plane that brought the whole affair low (sorry for the pun). Bombers diverted attention from GAA when it comes to capping, that's all - and still most players ignore bombers (because either they are dogfighting on low altitude even if flying 109s or MiG, or they don't have hp/firepower needed to shoot a bomber down).

You have reached your quota of positive votes for the day

I'll also bring my little to the mill.
If we look at the development of the game in a year:
Pros:

  • The stability of the game has improved, that's great.

Cons:

  • new players have little motivation to play, the generation of the team is very unbalanced, they often play even on low tier against experienced players with excellent aircraft in a special configuration, equipped with 10 or more skill pilots
  • no new missions such as Horten, BVP, XP-55, Vampire. For example, the Christmas mission did not bring a new aircraft, but only a standard aircraft with weaker weapons, which was declared a premium.
  • no special missions, as they were on special projects
  • unfulfilled promises from the roadmap for 2019
  • senselessly strong T10 bombers level

Maybe a few small changes would suffice:

  • in the first epic always teams from the same tier, ie not a mix of T1 and T2, T2 / T3, T3 / T4 + do not put together experienced players and novices
  • reincarnate missions on special projects, Horten ...
  • restore missions such as bomber escort, wear and tear war ...
  • weaken the power of the T10 bomber

Indeed they are.

Absolutely.

 

While at it, scale Daily Token missions according to tier capability.

I have to agree with that. Although there are still plenty of high altitude heavy fighter players buggering around at low altitude, completely ignoring bombers.

That is because they listen RoyalFlyingCorp bad advice, learn the game on Spitfires and Yaks, and never learn the play-style of high altitude fighters that should go after bombers and heavies. Also you have heavy fighter pilots who mistake them for attack planes and use them against GT.

Really ?? I still get disconnects, GUI bugs etc ... the only thing that improved stability for me was using a new, more modern rig.

 

Block Quote

Cons:

  • new players have little motivation to play, 

 

I think that after a year of no new content or improvements at all, even veteran players lose motivation. I'm not even a veteran and I play les & less ...

The new players at least have the whole tech tree to explore - until they reach tier IX and X and give up.
