Good that they decided to distance themselves from being easily confused with dare I say a stronger brand.....Bad that the name they chose is rubbish.

@FrostPaw "stronger brand", well as far as being pay-to-win sure! I'd distance myself from those people too.

@Braiks

Agreed, though they could pay out a little better for some of the higher-end tanks, but ya it's not pay to win........maybe play Russian to win but that's another matter :)

Common sense prevails, now that's not something you see everyday in MMOland.

Hmm...

"Planes are only the beginning..."

"...aviation is no longer the title's sole focus..."

"...evolved beyond pure aerial combat..."

If I were to speculate, I would say this indicates that they are, mayhaps, touching upon what the "World of Tanks/World of Warplanes/World of Ships" is doing. Being that they plan to integrate all their titles to affect the others in some way. Gaijin may be trying to make a more fully-formed world all-in-one MMO world as opposed to WoT/WoWP/WoS game-specific types. This calls back to "World War 2 online" a bit and somewhat to "Airwarrior" on GEnie, wherein you started on the ground, but you didn't have to take off in a plane (you could ride in a jeep and shoot at aircraft).

@Joshua Przygocki Interesting scenario definitely! Something different would be at least original for a change.

It does say:

"... the game will also expose players to combat on land and at sea."

The new title is too long and even more confusing.

Just because WOW is the biggest MMO ever does not mean every game has to begin with "World of". I mean the new title still has "World of Planes" in it. Just lose it altogether, name it "Wings Online" or "Jetstream" or whatever - some neutral name like that, and be done with it. This is just going to get more confusing.
