World of Warplanes requires more skill than World of Tanks

World of Warplanes requires more skill than World of Tanks

World of Warplanes will require more skill from players, says Wargaming.net CEO Victor Kislyi.

World of Warplanes, Wargaming.net's upcoming aerial MMO, will require much more skill from players, CEO Victor Kislyi warned us at GamesCom 2011 today.

'In World of Tanks, if you don't know what to do then you can just hide your tank in a bush and wait to shoot someone and do well like that sometimes,' Victor told us yesterday.

'You...you just can't do that in a plane. Or anything like that. It's more like World of Skills now.'

Wargaming.net is still tinkering with the handling of the planes and is hoping to reach a point where accessibility is balanced with hardcore appeal.

A number of features were already nailed down, however - World of Warplanes will feature day and night missions, weather effects and joystick support, Bit-Gamer was told.

As with World of Tanks, matches will also be based on a remote server, making all matches unhackable.

Got the skills for dogfighting Biggles-style, or do you just prefer trundling around in a giant tin-can? Let us know your thoughts in the forum.

I am all over this when it comes out. There is nothing I liked more about Battlefield games than flying around bombing tanks and having wicked dog fights.

[nostalgia] Will this be anything like Air Attack that used to be on Wireplay? [/nostalgia]

I want this to be good, really good and it could be but I think this is going to be very different to world of tanks that I think a lot of people are expecting it to be like.

I like the fact that this will need more skill.
Some of the tank battles I have witnessed have left me wondering if infact half the team are bots.

Cant wait ...

Excellent!WoT is a touch too biased towards luck for me anyway.

I'm really looking forward to trying this. I have missed some good old world war two dog fights.

Trying to watch a video within a video advert is very annoying though.

the trinity of games look interesting, i'm an avid WoT player and WoP could be awsome if it's as accessable but i do wonder if warships might end up like WoT with more hp, bigger targets, less accurate guns and no cover/hills&dips

I'm loving WoT but this looks fun too and my X52 is gathering dust at the mo. If it's based on the same engine then it already supports multimonitor setups and that should be excellent for maintaining situational awareness in a dogfight.

Hopefully the launch tech trees will include British this time.
