In a vain attempt to get some sort of answer, I used messenger to ask what was going on...this was the response.
“There are not respawns all over the map. How many did you see and where did you see them? We current have one per side running at any one time and intend to make the spawning distance a bit longer. This effort is get more revenues so we can upgrade to V/R as we are starting to get some paying M4 players with this approach. If you have some positive suggestions please send to firstname.lastname@example.org
. Thanks for flying Warbirds.
Firstly, it seems they claim that only 1 field per map can be taken by tank/GV etc, perhaps per day, or per reset, not sure. Today, I saw multiple fields taken this way, one after the other. Specifically, fields 27, 26, 7, 35, 16, 15, 24 and 25. There were probably more. Secondly, if “they” want more revenue, why not keep the current paying customers happy? I feel as though we are being overlooked and sacrificed in the rush to get new players. Are we not the ones who have stayed in this game despite low numbers? If it wasn’t for us, Warbirds would have shut down ages ago. I’m all for new players, don’t get me wrong, but this is quite a ridiculous way of going about it. And why not at the very least inform the current paying customers what is going on? Honestly its a wonder Warbirds exists at all with the shoddy way we are treated here in terms of a total lack of communication and any transparency. The last statement telling me if I have any “positive suggestions’ suggests that if I don’t have anything nice to say, say nothing at all. Finally, the irony of Customer Service and “thank you for FLYING Warbirds” in the last sentence.....it’d be funny if it wasn’t so stupid.
