World of Warplanes Dev QnA part 2

14

Hello everyone, part 2 of 2 is here. I hope most of your questions have been answered for now.

If you haven’t seen part 1 yet, i highly recommend you check it out here 

Q: Are there any plans to fix the ramming mechanic? Since when can two WW2 airplanes collide and the “heavier” one is not totaled, i’m fairly certain both planes would be fubar. Im also fairly certain no sane pilot would ram other planes as a strategy to taking down an opponent. Continue reading

World of Warplanes Dev QnA part 1

16

Good afternoon everyone, it has been almost 2 weeks but part 1 is finally ready for you to read. Part 2 will come later this weekend.

Q: Any plans for landing and repairing as well as landing to capture points?

We would like to see an interesting implementation of landing and takeoff ourselves. But in our opinion it should not just be an additional step for a player to enter the battle or repair their aircraft, but also have an underlying mechanic and meaning. Until we have a real working prototype that we’re satisfied with we can’t say anything specific. Continue reading

4

Original article can be found here

Many players have noted that Update 2.0 brought significant changes to the behavior of AA guns: they became more aggressive, dangerous and now pose a real threat to all aircraft classes. Additionally, we now have high altitude AA cannons that defend the objects from bomber and heavy fighter attacks. Let’s dive into the details on these new mechanics and compare them to the old system we had in World of Warplanes 1.x . Continue reading

World of Warplanes Patch 2.0.1

8

It’s barely been a month and World of Warplanes is already getting a new patch.

The patch will deploy on November 2nd

Patch notes:

Conquest Game Mode

The composition of ground targets in sectors has been changed, and as a result, the efficiency of different aircraft types when capturing and defending sectors will become more obvious.

  • Garrison: All garrisons will now have an identical average composition of ground target.
  • Forward Airstrip: The number of ground targets was significantly reduced.
  • Airbase: The number of ground targets was reduced.
  • Mining Plant, Military Base, and Command Center: The composition of ground targets was slightly changed with the view to adding extra targets equipped with AA guns. The total number, armour, and value of the ground targets in these sectors were changed slightly.

WoWp Devblog: Repair Mechanic

Main Article

Aside from the respawn mechanics that were added to the new Conquest game mode, we now have another feature that allows our players to be as efficient in battles as possible.

Continuing a battle on a damaged aircraft is, of course, a source of adrenalin and additional impetus to put all your flying and shooting skill to the test. Yet sometimes it is still ultimately a present for the enemy team who get to shoot you down easier. Moreover, quite often a player would choose to crash their riddled warbird into the ground so that they can re-enter the battle on a new one after respawn. That’s not the best use of your aircraft, which is why we implemented repair mechanics.

The game mode has two ways that your warplane can be repaired: in special zones over the airbases and “field” repair in moments when you find yourself in safety.
