It'll be arcade, it's World of Tanks but with planes, it'll be ok though I guess as it'll be free to play.

That's when they are included early shots of the tech trees only had Russian, German, American. And if it's anything like WoT we might be waiting some time for the British stuff

WoT still has the crash at garage bug for me. Seems to be caused by the latest patch, cause it has affected quite a few people with 64bit.

Really curious about how this turns out. World of Tanks is a great game and the detail in the models is great. Interested to see how they translate the arcade WoT style to a 3D space.

They announced World of Battleships today as well, anyone seeing a tie in where the surface targets they mention in blurb about warplanes will be the ships... Some of the concept art has pics of carriers, and a fair few of the attack planes I saw in the early plane tech trees where carrier based ones, could be very interesting.

Why are they gonna have ground-attack aircraft in this game when this is a dogfighting game, also will they have joystick support?
Also, why can't they merge world of battleships and world of warplanes? Naval fighting would be kickass with airplanes plus make some of the guns on the ships actually have a use.

'Cause Russians feel World War 2 revolved around the Germans, Americans, and Russians. Anyway, they'll be having the British added after the French tanks arrive for world of tanks incase you didn't know.

Anyway, I can't wait to fly the P47 Thunderbolt, the daddy of the A10.

I think Overlord or at least one of the other devs said that if you haven't gotten accepted into the Alpha by the time it ends, your application will still be good for the closed beta when they switch over to that

The game has officially entered Open Beta now:

http://na.worldofwarplanes.com/news/66- … st-begins/

Anybody in the Alpha is already accepted into the Open Beta and hopefully they'll be accepting a lot more new people as well to populate the server.  Anybody that already has the Alpha need only let the game automatically download the 1GB patch to update to the Beta.

I must say, they've improved quite a bit on the mouse/keyboard controls, or at least made them known to everybody with the new basic flying tutorial they've included in the beta.  It feels a lot more straightforward now and easier for the average person to get into I think.  They've also improved the graphics quite a bit in the last patch for the Alpha too, the game looks amazing now even on medium-high settings and I'm still getting 40 to 50 FPS.  The new UI is very cool too, I wonder if they'll ever port it to WoT

I like where this game is going; these developers really know what they're doing, it's a shame they act like children and don't so often listen to suggestions from the community with regards to new changes like the new game modes in WoT all being combined into matchmaking without giving the player a choice as to which gametype they want, they just have to stick with whatever MM throws them into.

So what's the difference in characteristics of airplanes?

Is it like Russian planes are tougher in armor but not very maneuverable, Germans aircraft are very nimble, and USA are very awesome at diving?

Anyone else get a beta invite?  Just installed, though I can't post details because of the NDA.
