Preview of new release 4.1.1

Z2 just posted the info below on their upcoming version 4.1.1 release.  Looks like they are making some incremental upgrades..

Looking at the list:
New Objectives for new Pilots:  Not too exciting if you're not a new pilot
Level cap raised to 45:  Wow - a whole 5 more levels - why not go to 100?
Nightwing:  This looks interesting - it would be nice to have a stealthy defense class plane that is competitive in versus mode.
First win of the day:  will have to wait and see what this is about.
Bug fixes - yeah yeah yeah, we've heard that one before.  Can only hope lag improves at some point.

It is good to see that Z2 is actively trying to improve this game.  I only hope that this isn't all they've got.  It would be nice to see a long term preview also - more missions?  more game types?  whats the long term plan Z2?

  1. Whats the Nightwing's real name? At first if thought it was nighthawk but, then it looked weird.

    1. Before the F-117 Nighthawk was publicly revealed in 1988, the development of a stealth fighter for the USAF was an open secret in the aerospace community. It was designated F-19 in the media. Since no photo existed of the F-19 there where a number of artist sketches trying to illustrate how this top secret plane might look alike. The airframe of the Nightwing is modelled on one of these illustrations. See http://www.fiddlersgreen.net/models/aircraft/Lockheed-F19.html and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F-19

  2. I have just created a new game center Id, so since the nightwing requires level 45, how do I get to level 45 quickly.


    By the way, I use to have over 9000 in skill

  5. Here's what I hope the Nightwing's stats should be like:
    20% Stealth
    5% Agility
    5% Lock-Speed
    15% Armour

    1. Why would you ever hope so with those stats it wouldn't be anything to look forward to.

  6. Armour Regen would be slack so that's what I think

  7. I assume there's a SU-37 fighter coming sooner or later

  8. The fastest way to build points for that level 45 is to play a Dragon in survivor. With it's heavy armor and regen it's not that hard to make beyond wave 21. You get lot of points and credits when you do that.

    1. Oh, and mine is fully upgraded except for the useless energy regen.

  9. The update is out! Level 40 is not the max now. Just finished wave 20 and got 950 credits and 400 and something exp.

      These are quite unusual stats o_O

      Delete
    2. Those are also unusual prices

    3. The FA-87 Tigris is the MS:W incarnation of the General Dynamics F-111 Aardvark ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Dynamics_F-111_Aardvark ).

  11. No bonus agility for agility class....

    Damage resistance for agility class!?!!?

    What is wrong...

  13. Looks like they want to provide us with more versatile and polyvalent planes. Maybe not a bad idea?
    What is your feeling about +speed vs +agility for a Weapon plane?
    Anyway, I hope that older limited edition planes (especially Red Widow) will be available again soon.

    1. Yes, me too. I have coins saved up waiting for it to reappear.

    2. u guys keeping all the coins waiting for red widow ( like myself ) - just dont accidentally press buy for the dumb pop up ( on Tigris crap ) - safer to keep coin count below 205 - look what happened to the poor guy on the front post today, lol, even worst the next bloke who posted he accidentally pressed 32,000 credits for 320 blue coins - damn that must have hurt bad - my sympathy completely - I accidentally pressed 8000 credits for 80 coins once - and I felt my heart drop - so sorry to hear that dude !

  14. I don't see pictures for the Iron Fang or the Rath yet. My top Versus plane is the Hawken. I wonder if any of these would be better?

    ReplyDelete
  15. I really want the Tigris, but I am afraid that the update of 4.1.1 may be mandatory, and it may include fixing the Thailand hack thing.

  16. I've reached level 45 but there's no nightwing. The update hasn't came out in my country.

    1. Wow! You got there quick. What mode were you playing to get there?

      Hopefully the update will be out in the next day or two. I'm saving up lots of coins and credits for it and in case the Red Widow ever comes out again.

      Delete
    2. Why do you want the Red widow? Two percent better damage, but when it comes to the critical strike rating, it is pretty much useless unless the missiles lock on. In a dogfight lock speed is much more benificial since the missiles of the red widow may have lots of damage, but will not lock on in split-second shots

      Delete
    3. Thanks for your comment. I guess I need to rethink the Red Widow. The Liberty has the fastest lock speed. So would that.be your choice for Versus?

  17. MSWM on an IPAD is MUCH BETTER than IPOD or IPHONE is written above

    Please explain, I have SR 15163, vs rank 1450(F113, Then F105 and Sentinel, all on my iphone, what have i missed???
    BTW guys its not the plane(have all except widow, nuts, even the green eagle bus) its the pilot, Hawkens used to be my nuisance now, I smile when I see one, Sentinels rule, nothing kills quicker.
    Also got lvl45 real quick coop with dragon but no Nightwing, numb thumb for no reason.

    1. Correct, playing MS:W on an iPhone or iPod might deliver the better results, since it is the lighter and more handy device. This might be an advantage especially for abrupt maneuvers. But you miss the big, crystal-clear, high resolution picture of an iPad3. I start MS:W on iPhone4 but now play it only on the iPad3 and do not want to go back.

    3. with the better display do you get the green box then red lock quicker? just curious before i get an ipad, happy with phone and mac laptop so far not that you can play MSW on a laptop...

      Delete
    4. I tried playing MSW on the iPad being displayed in the store and it just seemed like an enlarged screen; i.e. the plane covers the same percentage of the screen so you don't get to see a wider angle, if that's what you're asking.

  18. Looking for lvl 30 svl,

  19. The stats of the night wing are as follows:
    Stealth 14%
    Lock Range 10%

    1. Yes the update it out now. And yes it cancels out the Thailand setting hack.

    2. I'm not real sure what I would do with another defense class plane unless its also good in Versus. I've got the Dragon for survival and I can get to wave 22 with it playing single player so why do I need the Nightwing for other than it looks cool?

  20. it has greater agility thats good
