>man why is the thread so fucking awful
>is /wtg/ being raided again or what
goddamit, why is it that every time the game gets patched people come out from nowhere just to talk shit?
it's fucking sad
nth for fuck this game just deleted everything
and especially fuck you retards who somehow can still suck gaijin's balls after how little effort they put forward
>guy damages an enemy non-fatally and overshoots, letting the enemy spray at him
>kill the enemy
>"nice killsteal bro"
The War Thunder community sure is lovely. :^)
So the patchnotes show flight model changes to a ton of planes with some traditional gaijin garble about adjusting the force vector of the flux capacitors.
Have any of the planes actually had meaningful flightmodel changes? It looks like a lot of the stat cards have been updated.
The Sabre's ailerons now lock up at like 600 km/h and it can usually barely pull 7g most of the time. Mig has fantasy control authority at high speeds. Venom was mostly unnerfed. Haven't done much other testing.
Interesting. So the Mig-15 is taking it's turn again as King of Korea?
Just the D-30? The notes mentioned it as the only one with it's WEP heating adjusted and even before that it was laughable that with ~400 more horsepower it was at the same BR as the other ones, which were already a joke at 5.0. That thing could be pooping on doras instead of A-4's.
because they're mad that their favorite games are dead and shit
>/wotg/ is all but dead
>/fsg/ was never alive to begin with
>/wgg/ is literally the dead games general
remember, success breed jealousy.
MiG-15 can now pull 12G turns at 900 kph and overall turns better at all speeds
F9F-2 kinda feels like it accelerates better
Venom turns better while still having unbreakable wings
Meteors seem to turn worse
Haven't flown any props
This new death UI is the most disgusting thing I've EVER seen god fucking damn I don't think they could have made it any worse
lol wt is dying and it has taken far too long for 1.53 to come out, and so many additions gaijin has made are fucking garbage
>b-but other threads on /vg/ aren't as lively with shitposting!
doesn't stop war thunder being an absolute turd that gaijin has ruined. it had potential, once.
WT isn't in it's death throws but it's obvious that 1.53 taking for-fucking-ever for the very little amount of content produced not to mention the very serious game play changes that have the forums erupting in anger.
It's not on the brink of death but it's got a foot in the coffin
>climb on WEP
>make it up to 5km alt
>finally begin to see enemies
>three spitfires at 6.5km alt
>killed because I can't avoid the ayy lmaos and their hispanodyne ion cannons
Spitfires have really shitty roll rates
Any critical hit to a control or wing cripples the shit out of them
5km is the bottom of the battle box, this isn't the cordon rookie you need to get your shit together.
just today WT set a new peak players record and you fagots are saying that it's dying.
here's the old chart for comparison
checked leddit to see what they're saying about 1.53
in game screenshot 1/2
replay screenshot 2/2
nice one gaijin
This game is completely fucked now
>first time ever FPS drops
>lags like shit
>lots of new p2w shit
>doesnt even try to hide who their favourite is anymore
And it looks hideous, the sun looks like a nuke went up on the horizon, everything shines like freshly polished metal EVERYTHING.
What is the link/website to bring up a detailed engine performance stat window? I need it for research
Literally, I need it for research
>Pull for Engine Fire Extinguisher
Tell me more about this meme.
>Shot in track in Panzer IV by T-34
>Round passes through my track like it isn't there
>Get ammo racked(((
>Get four minute crew lock for getting killed less than a minute into the match
everyone who isnt a delusional hawker fag that looked on the hunters performance chart knew it wouldnt be anything special, lmao @ all the faggots who used eagles to unlock that pos.
>b-but muh speed
get fucked fags, MiG4lyfe.
So is the p38L supposed to have 1418HP at 7200m at full WEP?
I don't think it is.
>Tank shells have explosive mass shown
>and TNT equivalent
>American shells have lower TNT equivalent than their actual mass
>Soviet and German shells have nearly double TNT equivalent than their actual mass
))))))))))))))))))))))))) American explosives were terrible ))))))))) is fact tovarisch )))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
Why is it saying I can research the Vampire even though I don't have the Tempest II? Is this happening to anyone else?
It literally can't break 633kmh
even with MEC set perfectly
this is absurd
>Try to take off in test flight
>Not even a water map
that can happen when patches change the tech trees. i dont think you actually can research it? try researching it if you want, but if you do im pretty sure you wont be able to actually BUY it or proceed any further without the preceding vehicles
IRL American HE was not amazing, because if your gunner gets hit in the face with a solid AP round, Hans isn't going to scrape his guts out the gunners seat and keep going like nothing happened, he's going to be bailing the fuck out of his invincible nazibunker.
It does that sometimes when they move planes around, because you "unlocked" it for research before you can still research it. However, you are always required to own the previous plane in the line in order to purchase the next one so you'll still have to research them both.
>have a friend whose just getting into warthunder
>he's really exited about the new update
>if I try to show him the truth i'll just come off as extremely pessimistic
what do I tell him lads
>F2H exits slipspace and ends up several lightyears behind my tail
>He keeps teleporting as he phases through my long-range turbolasers
Since when did Klingon Birds of Prey have blink teleportation modules installed as part of their standard equipment
invisible tanks have never been so real
i just got killed in my kv-2 by a mystery-mobile that was somehow hitting the back of my tank even though there was nobody there
turns out it was a M18 ~20 m behind me in the open (at the crest of a small bump in terrain) that didn't render until the deathcam turned his cloak off
also planes beyond ~2 km or so rubberbanding like crazy
i hope they fix it
So TL;DR for all of these is that THE NEW P38S ARE UNDERMODELED AS FUCK
GOD FUCKING DAMNIT GAIJIN
Oh oh, and the past 5 hours I spent gathering correct info, and then comparing them in test flight?
ALL FOR NOTHING
BECAUSE GAIJIN WONT DO SHIT
>elevator sorta fucked in that way where it pulls up a tiny bit and nothing else
>make it all the way back to base
>hit airbrake to slow down
>plane does an instant backflip and flat spins into the ground
The fuck? Protip: don't hit airbrake if your elevator is fucked
>BLIND HUNT/AVENGER ORDERS NO LONGER RENDER TARGETS OVER 12KM AWAY
WHO THE FUCK PUT THE FUEL TANK IN THE LEADING EDGE OF THE WING
How to play tanks:
2. Drive around
2.5 Wonder why you can't find any enemies
3. Get killed by un-rendered tank
4. Return to hangar
How to play planes:
1. It's the same
2. The new planes suck
3. The new crew skill system is hurting my autism
4. Why are decimal values allowed if I can only add in integer values
>oh boy a new patch
>its fucking nothing, again
Gaijin you're falling behind, Wargaming already put out WoWS and people actually like it, you need to step it up
You're laughing because it's so obvious that Gaijin wouldn't release a plane without all its parts, right? Right?
>9 gbs of bongshit, preniums, and modes that no one will play
>still no T-62
Not like it really needs to be implemented, since most naziboos are shit, but it would be halirous to see their reaction
So there's a massive wave of exploiting for giant point gains now. Do you think the guilty parties will get any rollback or ban? Probably not... Gaijin is too busy with their world class voice acting academy....
Also these fucking water physics, botes when?
Ripples from shells rocking your boats when?
>there are more players now
>the amount of planes has been doubled
>the FM's and the physics have been improved
>This game is a husk of what it used to be
The only things that have objectively gotten worse are the grind and the balance, 2 things that you shouldn't give a shit if you're actually playing this game to have fun.
pff why am I even trying to argue with a jaded fag like you.
How much of a sexually insecure child do you have to be to play only RU tanks and nothing else? I'm out and no joke on me because I didn't pay a cent towards this game. Nothing but extreme disappointment in the end.
Nah there are less players now avg. peak players 8-12 months ago was 70k now its down to 50k
>Grind and balance can in no way affect you having fun
They're the only things stopping me from having fun you fucking moron
>stockholm syndrome for Gaijin.
that's what we have
we have been abused, lied to, taken advantage of so many times that we have just gotten used to it.
We love this game too much to leave, so we deal with the shit gaijin does to us and keep coming back.
While I agree that adding ships will only divide development further, what he's saying is that Gaijin just aren't putting out content, even Wargaming is putting out content, and quality content at that.
Gaijin just isn't performing well enough for me to take them seriously anymore, they're almost amusing to watch in a sadistic way, the way the squirm and strike out at opposing views and critiques is hilarious
Why the fuck is Russia only getting alt hist Krymsk and alt hist Berlin against America/Britain?
Anyway they fucked bombs harder than I would have ever guessed, I'm dropping 100 kilos infront of tanks just far enough that they hit right next to the tank and explode right next to the tank and nothing happens, hell the 250s were completely ignored by armored cares.
I just want the fucking Swallow decal, why do they have to do this to me.
And don't even get me started on the new timer.
>tank optics now
>"just fight up close"
goddammit guys, just pick a vehicle that you enjoy using and stick to it, this game is not a fucking race to tier V.
The "playing to grind and grinding to play" mentality is the source of all the bullshit and negativity in this game (and by extension this thread), Jesus Christ I have played this game for more 1300 hours and I can count with my fingers the times I've been legitimately mad at the game/gaijin.
tl:dr just stop being jaded faggots and try to have fun for once
Only thing less than five seconds is Assault Fuse which I described albeit possibly poorly since I'm tired.
No more P-47 niggers nuking themselves when dive bombing tanks)))
denial of what you nigger?
Gaijin has pulled amazing BS over the years but there is no reason to be upset if you stick to the parts of the game that you like, it's a no brainer.
earlier this year I tried to spade every plane, I hated doing it but I just kept going at it until I realized that it made me hate the game, since then I just use random tier 1-4 vehicles that I actually like, there is no need to force yourself into doing shit that you don't actually enjoy.
you two faggots are so jaded it's not even funny, I'm having fun with the game and there is nothing you two can do about it.
>you are retarded for not being able to recognize a bad game
oh so you're saying that I can't have fun in a bad game? shit why are you even here?
seriously, eat a dick, choke on it.
>We enjoy the taste of shit, and there is nothing you can do about it!
>DL speed is slow as fuck so i leave it running while i go to work
>come back 8 hours later just to find out launcher crashed mid download
>start it again, affraid it crashed shortly after i left
ty for reading blog pls follow
>This shit tastes so good guys, only faggots dont eat shit!
are you that /wgg/ shill from earlier
>teammates literally crying about new G-force effects
>>>>being this jaded
What? So just join Arcade with a bomber and crash into the ground for free points?
Do you get more points for bigger bombloads?
Do you actually have to hit something or can you just J out?
Jets attempting to pull a high g should learn to fucking stop at the point where they start losing thrust efficiency.
Cause at that point, it's just down hill, you can never turn faster than that point if you keep slowing down.
Roll rate drops as you go slower as well. If there is a plane directly behind you and can shoot. Your turn is ineffective if you keep the same turn direction, you have to get out of his gun solution and change it.
>tfw playing DCS instead of WT
I hate how Warthunder has become progressively worse every update beyond 1.29, and I'm actually considering uninstalling it after nearly a thousands hours ;_;
In the Horten you're afraid of ripping, so you tend to hold back on the high G maneuvers yourself anyways. 262 pilots are used to holding down the pitch up key because they don't rip, so they end up G-locking and bitching about it. Not to mention Horten loses a lot of speed in turns.
Still, people will get used to the new changes eventually.
>4 B29s suicide on their team
>3 Arados suicide on ours
>tfw I actually enjoy the game unlike most players because Gaijin's shitty game mechanics changes never affect me negatively, if anything they only make it easier for me to win
>new G-Loc mechanic
I don't like this. Before this, I felt like I was the only one in the world who didn't put 12 G per turn just to change directions.
Now more people feel a lot more reluctant to spend energy to turn hard. How the hell can I BnZ people who refuses to turn 12G because they can?
How many points do you get? I got killed with 8x1000 lb on a B-24 (didn't J right off the spawn just in case you know) and got ~600 RP, that's pretty terrible and I'm sure I could do better by actually playing.
>mfw grinding out the arados like a mother fucker
I think the tier of the vehicle is what determines how much XP you're going to get.
I did a quick test in arcade and these were the results
>PBJ 600 XP
>B-17G 630 XP
>IL-2 Type 3: 78 XP
>IL-4: 80 XP
Also I now have a use for all those backup bombers I got!
I got 6k RP on a welly but it just unlocked one module and threw away the rest of the RP, why did it do that? Do you have to stick around to the end of the match or something? I was hoping to get all the bomb upgrades on the first try.
Oh, I didn't actually answer your question lel. You have to hit the ground in the plane, so don't eject or leave before you do.
>tfw a quarter of the way to the hunter in like 40 minutes
what's the proper technique here? I've noticed the amounts vary quite a bit, even in rb. Is it best to just barrel down and rip wings and then hit the ground? or is it better to hit the ground with wings intact? fast? slow? anyone have any ideas?
Crash, bring the most amount of bombs possible, rip wings, and fly for around 30-40 seconds.
>mfw those matches where literally everyone crashes, so it ends right away and there's no crew lock
>5 faggots already crashed there planes
>on my fav. map that I never get to play too
whats this trend of crashing planes at round start?
>1.Bigger/more bomber = more exp?
More bomb tonnage, more exp.
>2.Does the plane matter or just if they have bombs?
Just bombs I think, but bombers work best of course.
3. arcade, realism or sim?
Be sure to hit the ground hard enough flying straight down so that you are completely obliterated. A tumbling crash or just ripping your wings off won't work.
Gaijin is celebrating the release of the Hunter with game-wide reenactments of the Shoreham crash
>all within an hour
literally the best patch in WT history
Are they serious when they say rp boosters work?
I have a 40% x10 from the anniversary events
YOU GET CREW POINTS FOR IT TOO?
I find it amusing as fuck but I didn't want to join in the exploit because I don't care how fast I unlock planes. But with the new spotting and G-force mechanics, crew skill is extremely enticing.
