    Aren't they likely to get into trouble with the name "World of Warplanes"? Blizzard might think it's a little close to WoW, over which they are fiercely protective.

    Oh S***. My wife is so going to divorce me.

    I already spend to much time on WoT.

    Don't suggest a naval World of Ships. I spent too much time a few years ago on Navyfield, and an equivelent World of Ships would just destroy me and my marriage.

    lol... There went my remaining spare time. I have been adicted to world of tanks, and if this gets out I am screwed...

    On a more serious note, I think it could be fun, but the matches may have to be quite quick. Its not like you can just take your B-29 Superfortress and hide behind a house if shot at xD

    When I think about it, there might be a chance that the russian bear is going to be quite overpowered if the trend continues lol.

    Looks awesome. Could it be a game where you have to bomb a target, and your fighters have to protect you?

    Been there done that ;)

    Remember that old Microsoft game you could access through their old, long-defunct online gaming service (think Heat.net). It featured huge multiplayer dogfights with WW2 planes.

    Excited to see the concept return!

    Does this mean they have finally fixed WoT? I [played the beta and was mightily frustrated by the viewing distance/camo/popup/shells disappearing into thin air bugs...

    It's not just the acronym WoW, but the last word even beings with 'War'. If you try to suggest it to friends they will be rolling their eyes at you before you even get to 'planes' :p

    How are they going to fit all the flight controls into WASD+ Mouse?
    The reason so many flight sims have small communities is because you need to have a Joystick and pedals in order to get the most out of them

    +1 to the guy who suggested World of Warships that would be EPIC, Like world of tanks now but BIGGER EVERYTHING

    That would be interesting if you could get up to the large flag ship battleships. Unfortunately WWII era naval combat was very long distance, non littoral combat. You had the small cruiser spot the enemies and the big battleships try to dial in their main guns. Aircraft carriers and radar changed everything. WWII was the first time a battle was fought directly from radar.

    Hang on, isn't this an idea.

    Maybe they're waiting till they release world of warplanes and maybe just maybe, world of warships before they release a final game where, wait for it, they release all of them in the same package? God, brainwaves.
