and it's actually pretty fun!  I never made it over there before because of the prior reviews.

 

There is a very thick layer of salt that has encrusted the WoWP forum with the release of 2.0 (too arcade-y for the old guard), but being a newb to the game I find it to be a nice, if somewhat frantic change of pace to ships and tanks.  It's also cool that you can earn free XP in planes that you can put toward your Nelson or Missouri (and that your premium time works there, too).

 

The one distracting thing when I play is that the voiceover guy sounds exactly like Zoup to me.  Could it be that he is now on the payroll?

Saw a couple of videos by Notser et al.

Sorry. Too arcade. Pass

Two thinks; First, the game looks interesting and the game includes some of my favorite USA air frames, plus a free B-26A makes it very tempting to jump at WoWp. 

Second, OP your avatar is hilarious.

I've flown 3 battles.

 

All 3 were defeats.

 

All three I was #1 in combat points for my team.

 

I get enough of that s**t here already. Not sure if I want to put myself through that in another game. :cap_fainting:

I don't really care if it's too arcade vs. the old mechanics, since I don't have any idea what they were like.  I literally have no expectations for it and it exceeded them (low bar, I know). :Smile_Default:

 

I lost most of my initial battles, too, until I figured out how to start playing the objectives.

TY!  I got first dibs on the Porgs. Can't wait for Star Wars X: Porgs vs. Ewoks vs. Gungans

Word from Jingles and others is that WoWp 2.0 is a LOT of fun.  I will try it soon.  I keep telling myself.

I gave it a shot during New Years with the email code offerings.  I couldn't get pass the fact that the camera does not hold on the reticle, which is pretty much how I've flown every single thing from Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator: WWII Europe Series to Battlefield 3.  I couldn't find any camera options to allow this, so I just gave WoWP up.

WoWP is fun. I started messing around with it about a month ago or so. Yea, a lot of the veteran players are not thrilled with 2.0 but i still think it's a fun game. It's a nice break if you want to give ships a pause for a bit and do something else :fish_happy:
