    This game is great. Its what WoWP should have been.

    Graphics are really nice, and the game responds and feels good in every way.
    Gameplay is solid, there is some nice feedback and it incorporates a lot of interesting planes to fly.

    I can't find any minimal system reqs for it. Any idea of this will run on a real old system?

    Talk to me, how is it?

    Grind/progression compared to WoWP?
    More arcadey or more simy?

    The grind does not appear very hard. You have the German, Japanese, Russian, American and British trees in atm and they all contain several different types of aircraft from fighters to bombers etc. Progression is done though a "rank" system, where any XP gained applies to every single line in a nations tree. Currently id guess i have around 5-6 hours in, flying mostly british (spitfire, fuck yeah) and im halfway into Rank 8, which is around the area where progress starts to slow a bit. The top jet planes usually come around rank 15 or similar. This is with premium though (Which is fucking cheap, everything premium in this game is cheap. Rank 11 Mk1 Mustang for fuckall cash? yes please).

    Most prem services are fairly cheap, but there are loads of them. Including one to give your planes premium status, providing more XP etc.

    As for arcade/sim aspect, its not a sim. Not even close. Its arcade all the way, but its done really well. It feels genuinely rewarding and real life techniques work due to the relatively low powered nature of these planes which means energy retention, turn rates etc are all important aspects taken into account by different types of aircraft.

    Engine wise etc it feels ALOT more polished than even WoT. Interestingly they have an ARMY AIR and FLEET tab on the bottom, only the AIR tab is active right now but the FLEET is already being teased. These two parts, planes and ships, i am very convinced that they will do them 100 times better than Wargaming. As for the tanks part, we already have that so these guys are doing a tremendous job.

    The only things to keep in mind: fly with mouse and wasd, even if you have a joystick and make sure you get a basic understanding of leading targets.
    Flying planes, especially in platoons, epic in this iteration.

    apparently yesterdays patch introduced a bug where launcher needs to run as admin but will not ask for this itself, so rightclick-> run as admin

    I didn't get much better with the torrent. The patcher sped up for me after awhile. I was getting ~300kb/s for the first third or so of the download, and now I'm getting 1mb/s.

    Tried, looks good but seems to have problems to decide if its an arcade game or a sim.

    Its none of both it seems. To arcade for a sim, to sim for arcade.

    Also dont even try without joystick, at least my opinion.
    When I see a bird that walks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck id call it a duck.
    And if the bird denies to be a duck it is a russian duck.

    Alright, i'm in. What's the best tree to go for? Gonna try the Spitfire line I guess. Thinking about it though, if going by historical accuracy, the Mig-15 is probably the best end-game fighter?

    You can just quit. The planes gets repped immediatly so you don't have to wait for the other battle to finish.

    Now if I could just stop crashing. The planes that is. Client seems fine.

    All the british fighters are really solid so far.

    Spitfire Mk2 is a rapetrain and i usually start out with it even though i have the Vb just so i can kill shit quick and not worry about losing my best fighter immediately. Hurricane II is also good. 12x guns makes up for their small caliber in a lot of ways. Even managed to down a MiG 9 late model with it :d
