A flight model similar to "Aces over Europe" or "Aces of the Pacific" while not hardcore are good enough to reward WWII type tactics would be ideal. Looking forward to this one.

Yeah - I don't want anything Falcon level, but something that makes having a (four-button) joystick worth it would be great. I was worried it was going to be all "click to attack." :p

I do love flight games. I hope they also make a sci fi.

Can't wait. My friend didn't particularly like WoT. And he only plays shooters or WoW. But lately it's been hard getting a raid off the ground. He's into flight simulators, so something like this would give us something to play :D

It sounds like they are just going to mix all the nations together again was hoping for a bit more rivalry between axis/allies.

Nice doublespeak on the devs part. Let me help them, Yes the game will be pure arcade, just to clarify for those wondering the difference between a sim and an arcade, there is no "MIX" its either arcade, or its a sim, in these cases, like world of tanks it has to be arcade, people could not handle real weapon, handling, ballistics etc, they want to get into something and shoot somebody, its that simple. If they had to deal with simulation, they would not play it, its all about the fun.

You want great sims go play DCS blackshark or A-10 Warthog, they even have multiplayer mode for those wannabees wanting to get their arses kicked, LOL. In just a few short seconds or minutes you will be educated on the difference between a sim and arcade. (grin)

On occasion we have some new scrublet coming in and trying to shoot folks down for fun not understanding they bought a sim and when you log into a sim server your controls are set accordingly even if you play arcade in single player, they only last a few seconds and never return. These folks cannot afford to do this, as fun as it is for us, they have to dumb down the controls making it arcade so as the dev stated, the masses can actually play it as it requires little brains or hand eye coordination.

Nothing wrong with making an arcade game about military vehicles, WOT arcade did it i am sure these folks will be able to pull it off too. Whether it will be pay to win like WOT is another story.

May even give it a try if it isnt pay to win, couldnt stand another BSG in WW2 trappings.

A few concers now:

* "Almost all the top-tier planes will be jets."

That has me concerned. Yeah, I know, we can still down them if we are skilled, but even if they were introduced, I'd prefer not to have them in the game.

* "of course the Sturmovik series is among them."
* "Calling Soviet Sturmoviks obscure is really brave! "

I can't fully tell since I am only reading words and "not there" at the interview, but this attitude has me slightly concerned. Not knocking on the Sturmovik, but many players commented that the Soviet Tank(s) in WoT are the strongest and granted, depending on your interpretation/viewpoint this may (or may not be) the case, given historical analysis of real events, but top-strength is assumed and incorporated into WoT. Given previous comments, the game designers are obviously very proud of their country (Russia) there is a danger here that the Sturmpvik could also be "top of the top". And while history MAY show this, IMO, it seems favortism is playing a part in this.


On the plus side, I am glad to see some (future) incorporation of battleground between WoT and WoWP. I can only hope/imagine, this may be also carried out and made a possibility when World of Battleships/Warships launches.

@Space Cobra

The only achivement Sturmovik has is that it was actually the most produced piloted aircraft in history (as wiki says) with 36K planes build during the war.

So dont worry friend that only means we will shred many of them it our Spitfires (lol).

The Soviet Tank Lines in WoT are better armoured, faster and have bigger guns. The difference is subtle if you are on the edge of the advancement curve but fighting "up" the tiers it's always easier to damage US or German tanks and US tanks are not as hard hitting (at least pre tank destroyer days).

WoT is still fun, despite me wishing they never added artillary or Tier 8 Premium vehicles. I haven't put any more money down on the game since that happened but it's still relatively fun for a few matches if you don't focus on grinding up the tiers and accept you will face enemies you can't beat.

Yep soviets are pretty good at combat BUT nevertheless during the grind I tried both German and USSR trees and find myself more effective with King Tiger rather than IS-3. I have my record of 8 kills on KT and 2150-something exp for this battle and I have never achieved something with IS or IS-3. And even more being an average skill player I dropped my victory ratio on IS to 44% while manage to rise it for Tiger (I) to 56%. And these are the numbers for 300+ battles for each vehicle.

So IMO as one become more and more familiar with Germans he will definitely see their superiority particularly MUCH better gun and better accuracy. It seems now that all the complains our community provided from the beta about Russian tanks being OP resulted in better balance tweaks in latest patches that at last brings Germans to their glory in this game so far. And if you are interested in more facts look for the videos on youtube of top Russian clans - they also play only German (King Tigers) or American (T32) tanks now in all championships...

Oh yeah and also now any T-54 is just a joke for my E-50 (proved to being able to penetrate T-54's armor from any angle as well as in front without any aiming and kill it in 3-4 shots).

The King Tiger SHOULD be a better tank.
