Wargaming's second big foray into the MMO-space comes at the hands of World of WarPlanes, recently entered into open beta. We've been playing WoWP and have a few early thoughts to share. Read on and then tell us about your experiences in the comments.
I’ve spent a decent amount of the past week’s gaming time enthralled with my Arado Ar 68 and my AGO Ao 192 Kurier. Before this past week, I didn’t have a clue what either of these were, but now I have a newfound love and respect for German aeronautical engineering, that’s for sure. World of Warplanes recently hit its open beta, and as we well know in the F2P world that means the title is as good as launched. I’ve put in more than 20 fights (which go by quickly even if you manage to last the entire battle), and I can’t wait to sink in more time with this game. WoWP has the same breadth of persistent progression through tech trees as World of Tanks, only the action is far more fast-paced and, to me, more fun. It’s not going to please the flight-simulation fans out there as the action is decidedly more arcade than realistic, but Wargaming’s sophomore effort is much more my own personal speed than their flagship title.
