They seem to have hotfixed the damage for some of the bombers, my PBY can take more than 1 hit now.

You were flying a B-25 when you dropped a bomb on my plane as I was repairing, unless there is another Red_Stapler. Good show, Old Chap:roll:

Yeah that was me. I wasn't even expecting it, we were just bombing the runway from high altitude - "base damaged, base damaged, base damaged, aircraft destroyed, base damage, base damaged..... Wait a second, aircraft destroyed? :eek: :laugh:"

I know my PBY took tons of damage and still flew. I was getting hammered by BF109s last night. Im working towards the Lancaster and B-24D(which my grandfather flew in WWII)

Im currently stuck trying to take out Yamato's Battleship. I have put ~18 torps into that thing and it still floats. I always run out of time or get shot to hell. I have put torps into it flying with almost no control left in the plane. just enough to level it out in time to drop the torp. I swear that mission is bugged.

Ok.. I am extremely critical of games and promises made by devs.
Even I have to say the most recent patch seems promising finally. They did a lot of things..
I might even check it out again. But the funneling through random maps has to stop. I hate being told what map I have to play on, randomly..

Still.. Eh, we'll see.. Maybe Gaijin won't suck fest all over the place after all..
Becoming way to common for these F2P games to not deliver on promised content.

War thunder has all but gone silent on "world war" mode.
Which is the only reason the game has a chance for real longevity imo.
If "world war" happens I'll have faith in Gaijin again..

The tiny maps and time limits really kill a bombers worth though.
Can't even get to proper elevation before heading out or the game will be over before you reach the enemy base.
Bombers don't fly in at 10k feet unless a rare situation calls for it.
As it is they all have to pretty much, or just be useless.
I miss Aces high. That game was great for bombers and fighter planes alike.

Hope the patch is going well for yas anyway.
I still have 6 months of premium so I might hop in and see if it's worth playing again to me.

As for the PBY.. Was always a tank, can take a hit, flies slow as hell, but dam hard to bring down..
Once you go B series bomber. You don't go back. :)

Patch today.
Domination fixed, bombers fixed, ground targets fixed, rockets buffed.

220% increased shooting accuracy of missiles
Time to snipe with those damn rockets. Yes Beau X I'm looking at you. :laugh:

And about Catalina. Yesterday I've chased one in my F4/trop. I've shot 2 magazines in it and that damn thing still fly.
I'm a rookie I know, but I shot it from both sides, from back, from below, from above, made lots of crits, gunners dead, engine smoking and it still flies. It went down in the end but oh boy I sweated. :D

I just unlocked the P-39 and promptly shot down the first three planes I engaged, one of which was a Beaufighter that only took a couple of rounds. How sweet it is.

I'm very happy that I held off from buying a few planes last night, in fact, I guess I should thank Ducky for his "never have I never" stories.

Yeah planes are cheaper but rewards and repairs are....auch. This patch is a Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde.

BTW I just got a trophy but I have no idea for what. I just bombed their base with 2x1000 kg from 50 sec to 50 sec and in the end I've received those 7500 credits as a trophy. For what? :wtf:

Eluding the new economy and abusing trophy's.

For my curiosity I'll try it tonight but I have a feeling that it works because yesterday I've already got 3 or 4 trophy's for nothing.
It's a cheap and dirty way to make money but if Gaijin screw new economy then so be it. For a day.

I don't know, I just tried this two rounds in a row, and got zippo for awards or lions. That's hard on the old K/D, too.

Yep, I've tried last night for two hours but frankly I cannot play like that so I've played normally but only with reserves. I got zero trophy's in 2 hours of gaming.
Bleah, back to normal play here, I'm not made for this kind of "play".

Same here, that kind of grinding ain't my style. I did get one trophy for 150,000 lions in one round, no explanation given.

No explanation needed man because is pure random luck. Like lottery.:banghead:
You can have the game of your life and get zero trophy or you can ram a friendly aircraft and get a hefty 1,000,000 trophy. :eek:

This trophy award system is stupid. Period.

Tried it again and got almost instantly bored.
Even squad members don't play as a team.

In Historic no one watches the bombers backs at all.

The repair costs are stupid high.
The game acts like punishing people is a good and fun game model when it isn't.

You can't even afford to fly your favorite planes, because the cost of loosing them is so high.
So why even waste your time getting to max rank?

Yea, I played it for a long time..
Not impressed.
Sure the planes and damage models look nice but the flight models are sub par.
The controls don't feel good at all.
It's like MWO..
They act like if they keep shoving new planes down your throat, that is enough.
To me it's not.

Don't believe me about the economy?:
http://theentitty.wordpress.com/201...tips-for-war-thunder-1-31-post-economy-patch/

You would need a 20:1 kill ratio in top tier to make a profit..
The economy is so bad it completely killed my desire to play the game in the least.
It never use to be like that.
Now imo it is total garbage.

^Why I'm not bothering going past level 10. For Russians I keep to level 2-3 and Germans 4-5.

I think you took the wrong approach with this game by buying way too much. I bought one pack, got some gold got a plane with it and I haven't had any issues with "the economy" in the game. There's plenty of entertainment here for those who play for free.

Unless you actually enjoy getting the best items in the games.
To me, I enjoy getting those awesome planes, I always wanted to fly when I was a kid.
But getting them, then not being able to fly them is not fun.

It's like getting to the last level, to realize you just can't beat the game.
Kind of a let down.
Has nothing to do with buying anything.
If you start playing with rank 20 planes you'll see what I mean.
You really won't know what I am talking about until you do.

Gets even worse in historic.
Fly a historic round in a jet or a heavy bomber.
That 50k repair bill turns into a 100k repair bill.

I have 1 million lions then all of a sudden I am totally broke..
Those lions took me weeks to earn, but only one hour to loose..

The game shafts people who like to play in high tier planes though.
It shafts the "end game" player base.
Kind of a slap in the face after all the time and money I invested.
They never told us "Oh hey btw we are going to triple the economy costs".
One day they just did it..
That gives me no sense of security in what I buy and how I play.

Well, as long as you enjoy it, that's all that matters.
Just stating my experience.
Hope u all enjoy but for me the game is a dead end, unless Gaijin fixes it.

@erocker. You are perfectly right. My sweet spot is Tier 5-9. There I have all my planes I dream of as a child. :)
OK, I want a FW too, but it's a little bit high in Tier. I'll see.

I really play for fun. A bit selfish because as a rookie my fun is a nightmare for my team but hey I want to drive planes. :D
And even in this crappy economy I still have fun. XP doesn't bother me, money yes but for now I have one week of premium remaining and for me money always come slowly on Standard or Premium.

All I want now is to grow my crews. I want them all experts at least so I have a lot of playing in front of me.

@D007 You are right too. :)
My major gripe is the lack of teamplay but after 41k random battles in World of Tanks I'm somehow immune to that. All that fighters which go for AA in first minute drives me crazy when I'm slowly climb in my bomber for example. 5-6 guys chasing a lone bomber. Nobody to cap/defend an airfield on Domination maps. And so on...

FM is another problem too. Some planes are somehow OK but most of them have a generic FM and it hurts.

Economy after patch is a step downward. Planes are cheaper to buy now but Rewards are diminished and repairs skyrocketed. And that stupid lottery system called Trophy is an insult.
Even I didn't buy a Premium plane I don't agree with Gaijin philosophy changing them. Heck even Wargaming didn't touch their Premium tanks. Some become obsolete compared with new introduced tanks but they didn't alter their characteristics and you still make good money even with an old one like KV-5.

Another problem is lack of joystick support. As a flight sim is outrageous that you can't play with joystick in AB/HB. OK, you can play but you're in a clear disadvantage compared with mouse users. I know because almost 2 years ago I've bought a joystick for this game but I cannot use it in AB. I simply can't aim with that darn thing. I can fly OK but when it comes to aim is a nightmare.

I understand that the game is a Beta but when you buy with real money stuff in WT I usually expect that I'll receive what I paid and not after a few months my shiny Premium plane to become sort of garbage.

Bottom line the game is (still) fun but it needs a lot of tweaking to become what Gaijin (or us) want to be.

This game looks amazing.. but it'll be dead within a year unless they fix the major issues
