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.
