    Well before the patch I was having fun, now not so much. One shot now to the my elevators or wings brings me down right away. Before the patch, that never really happened. For fuck sake, I just took one shot to my A20G tail and I was done for.

    Yeah, I've been noticing my plane is made of more wood than metal. The few times I live after being shot at, my plane is uncontrollable after loosing one piece (either elevators, rudder, or engine).

    I just created a support ticked in hopes of getting some lions back for them taking away half of my weapon upgrades, mainly pylons, cannons/guns, etc. Which all disappeared after the last patch.

    Let this be a lesson to all of you on TS. Don't push me to download and play a game with you. NOW you see what happens. I download it and they made the game suck via patch. If I would have stayed strong and ignored all of you like I normally do then you all would still be enjoying this game. BUT NO! You all insisted I try it. You see what happens Larry? Do you see what happens when you ask Themailman to download a game not on steam! DO YOU SEE WHAT HAPPENS LARRY!

    I have no idea what the Larry reference is you crazy dolt.

    The game is actually better after the patch, with the exception of a couple issue that are for the most part fixed now.

    :confused:

    I think this patch actually made the game enjoyable for the first time in months.

    Shame on you! Perhaps you need the visual of a crow bar smashing a corvette you jostle your grey matter into action?

    And minus the upgrade jazz, I'm settling into the new patch well. I'd be interested to see how your ticket turns out, I was reading you needed screenshots from before the patch, which seems ludicrous. I've spent a pretty penny in silver lions getting most of my planes back to snuff, most of the pylons and such that are still locked now have a more exorbitant experience requirement than previously.

    I'm glad I waited on getting more GE for premium, the Steam pack is a heck of a deal.

    EDIT: There was a funny post on the Warthunder forums: Time to switch to level 0-1 for the new player initiation:laugh:

    Also, I'm reading posts that you can move your Warthunder folder into your Steam one and it works.

    I'm looking for this Mustang and Ace pack.. I can't find it. I got a FW-190 last night and flew in a level 10-11 match. Probably one of the best matches I've ever had. Got 55,000 SL's for it.

    Nice round! I think I quit last night right when you were getting on, I looked for you.

    I think Steam is having troubles with their purchases for this game, it is hot off the press, the OP in the Warthunder forum says it will be fixed ASAP. I think I'll stick with the Steam pack for now, 3 planes, 2 campaigns, a month of premium and 1700 GE for $18.74 is super cheap compared to the $ I usually pay for one plane and 2 weeks.

    Honestly the game was better in the early stages of beta..
    Patches are ruining this game and have continued to imho..

    Costs have gone up for everything and fun has gone down.. I'll stick to something else..
    I keep trying to log back in every now and then, hoping it's better.
    But it's still just a shell of a game..

    For me costs are not a problem but fun it is. And lately I don't have much fun waiting in queue forever when I want to play Brits or US and after that being instagibbed by a plane 5 tiers higher.

    But I still have fun with some middle Tier planes. *cough* Beau *cough*

    I stick to arcade. Queue's are quick and it's a good way to kill an hour.

    Is this your homework Larry?



    Even three weeks after you referenced it, I just could not let it be lost
