7

Think you’re a hotshot World of Warplanes pilot? You can prove it starting today via Wargaming’s Furiously Flying Competition. The challenge involves earning as many thunder achievements as possible, so hop in your preferred tier IV, V, VI, or VII aircraft and fight your way onto the top 10 achievement earner’s list. If you make it, you’ll receive a premium tier VI Mosquito FB26 for your trouble.

Winners will be determined by the highest number of thunder achievements earned in any number of battles, according to the announcement page. Winners will be announced next Monday, August 3rd.

Sorry, just couldn’t help myself. I know you like the game, and it’s a good game. I might be playing it if it wasn’t for war thunder, but WT is more what I’m looking for. Heck if it weren’t for wargaming popularizing the genre we might not even have WT.

Oh, and healthbars! WoWp has healthbars! Take that War Thunder, healthbars are the way of the future! Mmmm yes, very realistic… :P

WT has bombers, this is good.  WT has takeoffs and landings and running out of ammunition, and this is good.
Otherwise I think it doesn’t compare very well to WoWP.   Arcade mode in WT is certainly inferior in just about every way I can think of (especially graphics) to WoWP.

But evidently people care a lot about takeoffs/landings, bombers, and never play WT in arcade mode…  I can’t deny it’s more popular.  
I’ve never seen a thing wrong with WoWP, it’s gorgeous to look at, historically accurate with its planes, and the games are fun and hair-raising to play.   And Wargaming’s UI and tech trees beat WT’s all to hell.   Their menus are terrible.

Considering that this game sees maybe 900-1000 people online at peak times on the NA server, it’s going to take more than this to jolt the corpse back to life. Wargaming tried to steal some of Gaijin’s customers by producing a competitor to War Thunder but the problem is that Wargaming made the game inferior in almost every conceivable way, then botched the beta and launch (which they are dangerously close to doing now in World of Warships). They failed utterly. If it wasn’t for the face they would lose by shuttering the game, World of Warplanes would have been shut down well before now.

Meanwhile, in war thunder land, I just shot off the wing of a low flying fw 190 with my Sherman’s 76mm cannon…
