    when War Thunder already has 5 nations in its beta.. you can see why people are not really interested in this..


    Dont bother with WOP.. get everyone off that project and put them to work on world of battleships :)

    Yeah wargaming is getting whooped by competition on this one, Warthunder IMO is just a far better game. I think they need to do some serious work to bring WoWP up as a serious competitor.

    World of Warplanes is so far behind War Thunder when it comes to the number of planes and game quality, it makes you wonder why they( are even messing with it.   I've beta'd both now and if you want to play a great game - try War Thunder.   Even in it's beta stage it is an incredible experience.   :)

    I played warthunder ireally wasn't impressed the action felt boring and forced and the overall techtree was complicated the grafix were alright but its more of a pure sim and im not looking for that .

    i am the immortal who will find perfect utopia at all cost .
