So this is in open beta at the moment. Onlly has EU and RU servers, but, I've been playing and doing fine from the middle of the US.

Very similar to the World of Tanks model, only with WWII and some early Korean war planes.

I'm having a blast playing right now. Only rank 5 in the US and 3 in the RU tree, lots of fun so far.

The game has SP missions (that can be played co-op with 3 others as well), 2 campaigns (have to buy them, come with some nice bonuses), mission editor, and a dynamic campaign (co-op'able). All the money/xp you earn doing these is carried over to the regular mp as well.

There are 3 levels of realism for matches. The arcade level is great for just jumping in and having fun. You can use a joystick, however the mouse and keyboard controls are well done.

Eventually they are going to have players manning tanks/vehicles and naval vessels as well in the same missions. Kind of reminds me of the old flight sim that I played on AOL (think it was on Genie as well) in that respect. You could capture bases on the ground, man AA, or fly around and shoot things up.

hadn't paid attention to this until now, looks kind of cool.  I may try the beta in a few weeks, too much on my plate right now.

the talk about how this is going to be a great PS4 exclusive in the other thread got me to give it a shot on my PC.  feels almost like World of Warplanes in the menus, but there are a couple differences I like once you get into the game itself.  Having multiple planes in a battle is nice, and the limited ammo makes you need to keep an eye on things.  It also feels a bit faster paced.

Anybody else playing this?  I have put in about 20 hours the last 2-3 weeks and have had a lot of fun.  I enjoy the 'free' tier the best.  I kick ass in bi-planes smile  Got to tier 6 for the US and while competitive for the most part I do not finish In the top 3 very often like the first couple of tiers.  Arcadish flight model that works fine with KB and mouse.  I tried World of Warplanes but all it does is crash...the game, not me.

played it for a bit; had fun but as always other games got in the way.  I think I prefer this over WoW.  That said, for some reason I don't have it installed anymore yet WoW is still on my PC....
