Global changes for Matchmaking

Not so long ago, we announced a new intended feature in matchmaking, this would allow us to limit the amount of specific vehicles in battles. The rule has been tested in battles with ground vehicles and aircraft at higher ranks and proved itself robust. It gives the players an opportunity to engage in much more comfortable battles and meet many enemies at closer ranks and BR’s.

Now we are announcing an important change in battles at all ranks for ground vehicles and for aircraft!

  • Compensation issued for removed/changed engine injection modification (thanks to Jorge_Too for the report).

19.10.2015

Changes in the operation of modification “new boosters” in jets for the following aircraft:

  • MiG-15, Canberra B.2, Canberra B.6, B-57A, Il-28 - Modification “new boosters” has been removed. These aircraft use conventional control rods and cables or hydraulic actuators for the operation of control surfaces.
  • MiG-15bis, MiG-15bis (GER), La-15, La-174, F9F-2, F9F-5, F-84B, Venom FB4, F-80A, F-80C, F2H-2 - modification “new boosters” affects the speed of roll control only as hydraulic actuators in these aircraft were installed in the aileron mechanism.
  • In the the F-86 series, the effect of the modification "new boosters" improves handling for roll and pitch - hydraulic actuators were installed only on the ailerons and elevators.
  • The research points and game currency spent on research of removed modules will be compensated.

22.10.2015

  • Steam Controller support has been added.

27.10.2015

  • Client stability has been improved.
