just when you thought World of Tanks was enough.  However, I'm leaning towards April Fools Day joke (which would suck because the description sounds really cool) with this feature:

For real hardcore simmers there will be a way to tune and fix your plane's engine with a «screwdriver». Now it is even more realistic than in a real life where there were technicians for that.

LOL, I wonder who will have the edge.  sure, Wargaming.net did World of Tanks, but Gaijin did Birds/Wings of Prey.

f2P?  sure, free to lose if you dont pony up some cash, just like most "f2P'.

I call the F2bF  as in "free to be fodder"

That being said, WoT was and is a fairly fun and well made game, it just aint free if you want to compete.

I compete just fine without paying in WoT.  It's one of the more balanced free to paid comparisons out there.  Not as even as LoL though.

you compete fine, but its much easier if you pay, therefore without paying your are handicapping yourself.

 Personally I dont like the whole F2P model, there is very lil free about them.

in WoT it's only slightly easier if you pay.  In LoL it's not any easier at all, just takes less time to unlock what you want.

There are plenty of games that you have to pay to compete and they may as well have been subscription, but those two aren't them.

Agreed about WOT at least.  never played the other.  25+ hours in WOT without spending a dime

Impressions from PAX East.

Quote
And the games are meant as a trilogy, albeit in the sense of three sides of a single conflict. Much like WoT, World of Warplanes is meant to cover vehicles starting in the mid-'30s and running up until the Korean War, with the upper tier of technology branching into jets instead of more prop planes. Each game is meant to also cater to a different style of play as well; World of Warplanes is the most energetic of the three games, while World of Battleships (when finally released) will aim more toward the slow and strategic sort of play.

WoB might be interesting if they ever get to it.

Now with press release:

Quote
Pilots!

The World of Warplanes Development Team is proud to announce reaching an important milestone in the life of our project. We have finally come to the Closed Beta Test stage.

We have unleashed into the skies 59 warplanes of three different types. Steel birds from the release tech trees of all three nations – USSR, Germany, and USA – are now battling for Supremacy on 4 maps, spraying bullets, dropping bombs, and firing rockets into a variety of ground targets.

We have implemented several game control modes to suite both experienced and novice pilots. And we have also created a tutorial scenario to help newcomers get to grips with their warplanes, teaching them the nuts and bolts of basic aviation.

The game development is far from reaching its final stages. The most exciting times are ahead. We will be improving gameplay, introducing more warplanes, polishing the existing features, and adding new ones. And we hope to work with you, shoulder to shoulder, to create a truly great game.

Join Closed Beta Test now and fill in the application form.
If you have already sent your application for Global Alpha Test, it will still be valid for Closed Beta. Moreover, it will be eligible for priority processing.
Let’s battle together. Get airborne!

World of Warplanes Development Team

If you ignore some of the crazy shenanigans of myself, here's an hour and a half of Mikagami and I trying to go to sleep and being addicted to 'one more flight' instead.

GRO got us stressed, World of Warplanes removed that.

I will check that out later Hark.

From the little I played (just a couple of games) I still much prefer the feel of War Thunder, but, WOWP isn't too bad.

Yep. Hark says the gamepad controls are pretty good as well.

Like the fact that one of the first things to happen in that video is a collision.

the dogfight shortly after the 29:30 minute mark was pretty amazing fun.  Mikagami had a higher tier fighter on his butt and he was doing a wonderful job of flying evasively SUPER low in the mountains.  I get on the tail of the guy on his tail and he gets on the tail of the guy on my tail.  Was quite entertaining imo.

Mods are allowed and even encouraged.  Not sure why, I don't really agree with this but since they are, you should use the ones that help you win.  ninja

It happens, eventually people learn to pull away sooner (you need to do this as well, can't assume the enemy will).  You'll also have friendlies ram you from side and behind trying to get behind same enemy.

yeah, almost rammed a couple of people by being too close.  both times it happened to me it was an enemy coming from the side, and not even the one I was shooting at.  Attrition warfare at its finest smile

The funny thing is that to an outsider they both look basically the same.  Tongue 

Clearly he was trying to make War Thunder look bad by just flying in a straight line and not showing any fighting, but other than that whatever.

You're an Ace. Funny thing, while I was watching the video, totally engrossed in a pursuit you were engaged in, a very noisy power grass cutter drove by my open window. His noise, which sounded a lot like the old prop fighters in your video coincided perfectly with a steep dive and turn you were making..for a split second I actually thought the video sound had gone up a few notches, very realistic.  thumbsup

I miss flight sims. Although this looks very simplistic in its flight model, it still looks like fun.

By the way, and I'm not taking anything away from your skillz, but what's with the guys you were hitting while on their 6? Only one I noticed tried some yanking and banking..most were getting hit by you and still flying straight and level.
Maybe hit detection isn't obvious until you're on your way down, dunno.
