    Man already are guys on forums with 2 planes fulfilled. :eek:
    I'm struggling in HB for a Dora but it's almost impossible for my aiming skills. 20 planes/day. Mission impossible for me.

    Any idea of when this patch is going to drop? Also, what exactly does the "LTH" refer to when they are talking about fixing the Spit IX? I'm hoping it didn't get the nerf that everyone has been clamoring for.

    In a Wednesday for sure. But I don't know which Wednesday. :D

    According to the guys in forums it looks like Spit IX is not nerfed yet in that 105 fuel/climb rate.

    But TBH I'm really sick of Spit IX. In last week I'm playing only Germans for my free Dora and I'm facing only Spit IX regardless what plane I'm using (from F4 to Fw A8 same damned Spit IX, and not just a couple of them but almost all enemies are in Spit IX :banghead:).

    LE:
    LTH means:
    Лётно-Технические Характеристики
    Flight\Technical Characteristics.

    And about fixing Spit IX it looks like it's buffed more because they changed his engine from Merlin 61 to Merlin 66.
    Oh boy...

    Planes are fine for now generally speaking.
    Let's see tanks in this Autumn.
    And if all goes well bring boats too. :D

    Official 1.35 preliminary patchnotes.

    It looks like finally they're trying to alleviate the Spit IX problems in 2 ways:
    - removing the premium version from store
    - splitting the existing one in two variants, one at Tier 10 with Merlin 61 engine and without 105 fuel and one at Tier 13 with Merlin 66 engine and with 105 fuel.

    Let's see how it goes.

    Also we'll have a new game mode: Events mode
    This looks very interesting for me TBH.

    So, if you have the Spit IX now, you're going to have two planes to replace it? I'm cool with that.. Or perhaps it will just become the Tier 13 version.

    ^^This.

    I'm not sure yet how Premium Spit IX will be. Moved to tier 13 and buffed with new engine or remaining at Tier 10 and nerfed (without 105 fuel and with old engine).

    Lol. Good thing I just moved on to the Mosquito. I'm liking that plane almost more than the Beaufighters.

    Good stuff man. :cool:

    I've had a nice game in P-47 too. Left alone at 6k and kill whatever cross my sights. Started wits some BnZ (more B than Z) and ended with a nice Hammerhead.

    It's a "little" different than WoWp.
    You can start in AB and have a lot of fun in that furball madness then move to HB/FRB if you want something more realistic.

    Anyway, take your time and have fun. :)
    If you have some questions just ask here or take a look at wiki for some basic explanations (it's a little bit outdated but generally speaking is a good starting guide).

    Yeah, no kidding.
    WoWp is way more arcade-based than WT.

    I'm still trying to digest the menus, they're not as intuitive as I thought they would be.
    Also, WoWp didn't have "crews" by the time I stopped playing so I'm figuring out how that works when I want to get next tier planes.

    So far, I am liking it. Had to change the mentality of 1 plane per battle to available planes per battle. Furballs are less messy and that's a good thing. Also have to learn again to avoid blackouts.
    Right now my objective is to try and get the planes I used to fly in wowp. That will give me an idea of how different the flight model is, down to a certain level of detail.

    IMO crew based gameplay in WT it's better than tank slots in WoT. Here you can train a crew for as many planes as you like and they'll never forget what they learn. Basically once you bought a plane and train a crew for it you'll have it forever, no need to sell the plane to free a slot and also no need to retrain the crew if you want to play that plane later.

    For AB you need those 5 slots (3 free and 2 for credits, and you can also expand crew slots beyond but it costs gold) but for HB/FRB you need only one or 2 (one for fighters and one for bombers/heavy fighters for example). Keeping only one/two slots active helps to crew leveling too because as you see you have a lot of skills for crew.

    About FM/DM, if you want to feel the right ones you must fly in HB or FRB (FRB only if you are a hardcore simmer) because in Arcade FM/DM is generic but in HB you really need to pay attention at damage taken or ammo count because is not too easy to fly/land with a black wing/tail or red engine and is not advisable to spray and pray because you have limited ammo/fuel and you must return to airfield to resupply.

    But for now have fun in Arcade and "feel" the game/planes. :)

    Best score for the day:
    [​IMG]
    I like the I-15s in this game. :p
    Sad to see that the LaGG-3 lacks the 37mm cannon. :\ I guess I'll seek the I-16 first.

    I really like that I-16, it's such a cute little plane, and turns on a dime, it's just not that fast. The LaGG-3 is pretty sweet, not one to turn your nose up at.
