Jihad of planes continue from Saudi

With the Thailand trick ancient history, the planes are now popping up under the Saudi settings.  See the 3 new bad boys that popped up recently.  I will review them as soon as I get a chance, but check them out and enjoy!

F-301 Stiletto
Looks like another Reaper class agility plane!

R-94 Achiles
Yes!!  The SR-71 finally shows up in MSWM!!


M-53 Ice Wolf
The Ice Wolf at first glance looks similar to the Liberty

  2. My c101 needs to retire now! Make this badboy as my primary plane. Did a flight test in vs. mode...What can i say "WOW". Can't even remember if i used cannon, just keep spraying missiles :). Darn non-stop missile locking everytime they pop up on my screen.

    1. Seriously? 5% extra lock speed does that? I'm starting to think these percentages are mistakes, just like the missile stats.

    2. maybe your right, but i was having so
      much fun flying it last night! Honestly i only care bout bonus agility and energy. This plane is so agile when you play it on ipad compared to iphone 4s. Like the weapon planes they are so slow on iphones but when you play it on ipad they are so agile. Top off that the plane looks super cool, its like buying a new car and u can't stop staring it and keep coming back to the garage to check em out lol. I love my c101, been using it since i started playing msw its a kick ass plane and everyone knows that. But it's time for a change, need to get used to this plane and become better .

  6. Why does the achilles cost 390 coins?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Because it is one of the best planes out there. It's talking someone who own it and have fully upgraded it. It worths all the 390 blue coins: I went from 4990 SR to 5190 in so little time!

    2. The achiles has terrible agility if you get in a cricling match you are screwed worth at max 300 not 390

      Delete
    3. I got the achilles and i fully upgraded it (except energy regen which is pointless in my opinion because this is a defense class plane)the feedback is: Wow! This plane is a monster!
      I fought a fully upgraded hawken (his missiles were super strong) with 33k SR (I have 4800) when it wasn't much upgraded yet and i got a 0-0 draw doing a circoling match so the guy above me isn't right.
      Concluding: If u have the possibility, this plane is a must to get, you will forget the green ea-something lol.

  9. The achilles is way too expensive

    ReplyDelete
  10. Mr.Smith here,

    Is it just my phone or, the Hurricane was replaced by the Dynasty?

    Besides Stilleto --> Lock speed bonus on agi planes really no point, 3% critical bonus on agi planes even worse. (the rath seems better)

    But achilles --> 12% stealth is annoying, +10% bonus damage seems to make it on par with weapon class planes, +15% speed bonus seems to make this defense plane the faster than non-speed bonus weapon class planes ! Holy sheet! However its acceleration is still 3x slower than weapon class planes and slightly less agi than weapon class planes, making this plane at max speed a devil but as soon as he slows down, its gonna be sluggish again. The 6% evasion is just additional annoyance paired with stealth which resembles defense planes. Overall this creature seems deadly on the first clash, but when it slows down, im pretty sure the acceleration speed is gonna be its downfall, its lock speed still is going to be sad, its ability to turn would be a drag. ups? High damage, high max speed.

    Ice wolf? --> Missile tracking 8% not gonna be much difference so since this is 6% its out of the picture, 14% damage making it the average of high damage dealers in weapon classes, the 10% energy might come in handy along with its speed. Not to shabby but definitely not a plane to die for.

    1. i had 49x blue coins yesterday, and i thought to get the Rath and upgrade it or just waiting the red window returens. i saw Achilles this morning then decided to buy it.
      Now i have the not fully upgraded Achilles and 5 blue coins, still i need 60 blue coins to upgrade it.
      Why i buy it? is it best? No, i get it just because two reasons :
      1. it is good for match, maybe not that good but good enough
      2. well-looking creature, is it?
      This game simply is for fun, i don't need "the best" plane, i enjoy flying different planes.

      Delete
    2. Is rolling your plane around (i.e. using manoeuvres) noticeably quicker on the Achilles compared to other non-Agility planes?

      Delete
    3. Compare to weapon/defance class planes, i'd say Yes.

      Delete
  11. Mr.Smith here,

    Additional comments,

    Stilleto --> I rather go for spectre or rath

    Achilles --> Too expensive and not that practical

    Ice Wolf --> If it looks super awesome then it might be a must buy.

We (really only me) want the viper and the saber!". Stop bitching and just vote on the survey about the green eagle. Btw i think they released the achilles just to make ppl shut up about the green eagle without deluding the ones who don't want it and the ones who want it.

  15. Can somebody find out the photo of Ice Wolf by digging in the files?

    At this point, the bonus stats seem not to bother me anymore. If the plane looks cool, I'll buy it.

    PS. An SR-71 in dogfight is just unreal and illogical for me. Hope they don't add a bomber to this game. How on earth can a B-2 or B-52 bomber make a roll to avoid missiles???

    Replies
    1. I haven't used it myself, but I can speculate how it will probably work.

      A standard agility class's maximum speed can reach up to 56% with upgrades, as compared to only 15% on this thing. So if its maximum speed is still going to be significantly less than any agility class, I really don't see how much use that would be in a vs. match. Stealth isn't going to make much difference either and its inability to turn virtually renders its other attributes moot.

      I most certainly would not get this if its price tag were only 145 coins... this is a terrible value.

      Delete
    2. if you quoted 145 coin with intention of implying that you wouldnt buy the plane for half the price it is, well then half is 195 coins, besidess this it just states that the plane is giiven a boost of 15% so lets just say max speed for a fully upgraded defense plane is 2600 so this slight boost in speed would be 2990 correct ? and Ithink thats pretty fair, cos if im not mistaken a hawken or sentinel ( inweapons class ) can only hit that speed.

      Sorry friend im a little bias when it comes to the blackbird - lol - its been my favourite plane ever since i can remember :-D

      Delete
    3. Thank you guys, finally i bought it and i released the feedback above. You are right about his speed and about weapon class's, my hawken reaches 2900 with all the speed upgrades.

  28. Should I buy the Stiletto?

    ReplyDelete
  29. To me, the Stiletto is a Super C-101. If you can fly C 101 well and feel comfortable dodging bisnos without extra evasion or speed helps , the Stiletto is the choice.
    Unlike the other high-end agility jets, this one does not have any speed, damage,or DMG resistance bonus. And the +%3 critical plus + %5 lock speed are marginal to an Agility Class.So maybe it's not that "Balanced".But its top-notch agility + energy performance still can make it a Super One in the fleet.Noticed the 101 only has a +%5 agility bonus.

    BTW it's a more practical one than the previous Iron Fang.

    ReplyDelete
  30. My friend bought the iron fang when you couldn't see what it was and he eventually was able to use it (he could see the plane at about the same time or a little before the release). With that info I am going to get the ice wolf because it will appear.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I do agree with Mr Smith / anonymous above.
    But maybe acceleration is included in the speed bonus? Actually there is no plane with acceleration bonus.
    What do you think guy of speed vs agility? Are you sure that speed bonus only increases max speed or also maneuver speed? I would tend to prefer a plane with agility rather than speed, but as I said in a previous post, I feel like low speed is even worst than low agility when I fly my Dragon.
    Overall, I consider these new planes interesting and well looking but nothing exceptional and I do not think I'm gonna buy of them.
    The Achilis would have been awesome with Agility instead of Stealth or Evasion.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Not sure myself whether or not Speed affects Manoeuvre Speed, that's why I asked the Asian guy above. Seems like it does.

      I roll around all the time on my Dragon to help me turn, so if each manoeuvre becomes quicker then that's definitely a plus. Personally I would prefer that trait over the increase in Top Speed.

      Agility instead of Stealth would've been nice though. My ideal Defence plane, if without bonus Armor Regeneration, would have similar bonuses to Reaper's, as I've mentioned in a previous thread.

      Delete
    2. personally, i find speed way better than agility. i have the reaper and the iron fang and right now the fang is my plane of choice. (so what the reaper has A PERCENT...(just lettin it soak in) better speed, its too touchy for my taste.) the thing bout speed is the faster you can run from your opponent, the more time you can turn and get a decent shot in. evasion helps if they spam bisnos, and im no expert in dodging those damnd things with my reaper. and with the evasion and speed you can run right past them while taking maybe 1 or 2 missles, and turn right around with some wounds and just speed out of the way of their backflip spamming, turn around again, fire a few, land some, and if they cant hit you, you can whittle away their help untill they go boom... twice.
      thanks for reading my, me, in a fang, vs a bisno tigres. FYI my skill is only 5300

  32. Question about Speed -- If we turn tighter by using the airbreaks and slower by using the afterburner, does a slower plane turn faster/tighter than a faster plane (given the same agi)?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Given the same Agility, a plane moving at a slower speed turns tighter than one moving at a faster speed.

      As far as I know, the Speed stat affects the Top Speed, Manoeuvre Speed and the cruise speed. It does not affect the minimum speed, so all planes reach the same speed when using the airbrakes (given altitude and orientation are similar).

      Delete
    2. Thanks, I tested and you're right. It seems like all planes have the same minimum speed, so there is no downside to having a high speed bonus for turning (as long as you turn with airbreaks on).

      Delete
  33. full the E brake, then slam ur wheel 180 degrees u'll turn faster then accelerate...

    ReplyDelete
  34. I just got the achilles/ blackbird and im thrilled just because its the blackbird. The stats you see are just the begining. Once i full upgraded it, what amazed me was, i think it was plus 72% energy regeneration. I could do barrel rolls all day and not run out of energy. The fact that its a defense plane with 10% damage isnt bad either. This plane is not very agile but it goes super fast.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I have achilles too, and i am pretty sure its energy will run out.
      But its energy regenerates so quickyly, the energy will always be enough for me in a normal match.

  35. Stiletto? Plain and simple. first eight matches? 7-1 standard issue. The one loss came from a guy whose plane would keep lag jumping behind me and I couldn't get a bead. All the winning scores were from 5-0 to 9-0. Good plane even though it's like a reaper.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Congrats, it's not easy to make that much kills with an agility plane! What is your SR? I fly weapon class and rarely lose more than 1 or 2-0 against agility planes+credits cannons/missiles even when my opponent is several 10k above my SR.
    About Achilles: why do you Anonymous say it has +72% energy fully upgraded? Isn't it +132% as a defense plane? The upgrade tree might not differ from those of other defense planes.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sorry, i meant to say the last upgrade gives you more armor and plus 72% energy in addition to every other upgrade.

      Delete
    2. Really? Is it just for that plane?
      Until now, all planes in a given class shared the same upgrade tree and they only differed by the extra features indicated for each?
      Looks like things are getting difficult to understand.
      Can anybody comment about this?

      Delete
    3. No, OK, I'm wrong. I checked the agility tree of my Dragon: the last upgrade gives you +72% energy as you said.
      Defense planes are the best of survival and they are better than agility planes for campaign. But when it comes to versus mode, the armor hardly compensate for the low agility, speed, damage, lock and missile reload of agility or weapon planes.

  37. I got the Rath when I couldn't see it. But on a match it just said spectating. I upgraded that plane to the full. But when Z2 finished designing it so you can see the image of it it worked but all the upgrades were all gone :(

  38. come on floro. u can bye it bt never upgrade it thats why u can use it for spectating only.

  39. I'm saying that when you buy a plane with no image don't upgrade it. When the image appears you'll still have the plane and that's when you upgrade it. I learnt on my mistake.

    2. Come on! Of course they know!
      There was even a guy who posted about this on their forum.
      Maybe it is a way for them to make a premium delivery for players who are really into MSWM. I would not be surprised to learn that they get some input from some fans and that they looked up this forum in order to get some feedback before the official release. Remember guys that the stats of the Sentinel and other planes were modified between the leak and the official release. That makes sense, I think.

    7. Thought I posted here already but I guess it didn't send. Anyways, if there are any planes you'd like to get from the trick, I suggest you do it now.

      It may have been plausible for Z2 to deny they know about it before, but since it's out in the open in THEIR official forums, someone out there may not be overly joyful when they find out the plane they were egged on to buy because it was a "limited time offer" was not so exclusive afterall. It would seem negligent of them not to seal the hole, so they may reevaluate and shift their priorities a little.

  44. Some preliminary comments on the R-94 Achilles:
    Price: Way to high, I expect a lower price at the official roll-out of this plane.
    Airframe: Incarnation of the (unarmed) Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird. Its sibling, the (armed) Lockheed YF-12 would have made more sense ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockheed_YF-12 ).
    Bonus stats: Top speed (fully upgraded) +27%, seems to be too slow to escape from a close dogfight with a Reaper (+69%) or other fully upgraded agility class fighter. Hence, the proposed concept of a high-speed (non-agile) defense class interceptor, which is competitive in versus is likely not to be fullfilled.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Mr Smith,

    @People who are comparing agility plane's speed and agility with the defense plane ones :

    You guys shouldn't compare the agility plane with the defense plane in the first place in terms of speed and agility, ur looking at the agility plane point of view, I don't see people complaining about weapon class planes being too slow(agile) to fight against agi planes, so for the first time, a defense plane that has speeds that exceeds or matches weapon class planes'is borned, doesn't it make it more applicable in versus mode then? Achilles actually has damage and speed of an weapon class combo'ed with the strong characteristics of being a defense plane ! Only weakness imo is the acceleration speed and lock speed.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It may have the same level of Damage bonuses as Weapons class planes, but it's far from having the same damage output potential.

      So far, my only experiences in bringing a Defense plane into versus is with a Dragon. My strategy has always been to do bold moves, take what hits I can, recover and repeat; I suspect that's not going to be viable on the Achilles. It seems like a mid-range fighter since it neither turns well nor slings missiles quickly but has adequate speed, energy, armor and damage per hit.

Coin missile makes u look great all the time.

      Delete
    2. Come on now, no need to get butthurt and hateful at weapons plane flyers. If I were to use coin missiles I'd pick a weapons plane to fly too; not because of some nonsense like it takes more skill to fly Agility/Defense planes, but simply because bonuses like Missile Reload Speed REALLY complement the missiles.

      inb4 the "only true way" of playing versus mode is to get into tight circling matches, dogfight and only rely on cannons~

  49. Is the extra energy regeneration on the reaper and dragon worth upgrading? 10 coins for 1% doesn't seem like it will make much of a difference

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I personally always fully upgrade the plane unless I plan to move on to something else. It's useful on my Dragon since I do a lot of manoeuvres in circling matches when recovering from missiles and lets me get back out there more quickly, but I'm not sure how big of an effect it gives. Take what you can get if you can spare it. Coins are worthless if not for spending.

      Delete
    2. i was thinking of getting the ice wolf, and I have 119 coins at the moment

      Delete
    3. Well, even when fully upgraded I still use up my energy bar at times to keep my opponent at bay while I recover, so I appreciate any extra energy regen. If it doesn't matter much to you, it's probably better to save the coins for the Ice Wolf / another plane.

      Delete
    4. The Dragon no, the Reaper yes. The Dragon is a great survival mode plane without the extra energy. It is to slow for fun versus. The Reaper on the other hand needs all the energy it can get for versus mode.

  52. The stilleto has just come out! It has great statistics but I won't get it, it's name, and bauge colour make it seem, kinda elderly, especially when compared to my current iorn fang, which is so similar

    2. Are you 12 with the social maturity of 6? To bad you can't use real words either.

      First, everyone is entitled to be excited about the game without some self appointed police telling them what to say.

      Second, it is an official release now and not just region leak.

      Third, grow up and learn tolerance.

    3. Nice job, Freedom Fighter! Such bad kids are spoiling the fun of people who just want to discuss friendly. To top it off, he is writing so poorly that it takes a couple of time to understand his crap.
      Such guys are not welcome here!

  53. I know that most of you folks will not agree with me, but I think they should continue to issue some defense planes with armor regeneration. Of course not as much as those of the Green Eagle, but I think that +5% like the Dragon is good. If you are in the mood to use defensive tactics (I can already here some say that it-is-not-flying-you-re-not-a-true-pilot-and-you-re-just-a-poor-noob-if-you-don't-fly-an-agility-plane-like-me), it can be a lot of fun and a great challenge to play with Dragon in versus mode. Contrary to the Green Eagle, the Dragon is good, because it can still be shot down by a good agility plane player with credits missiles. But you and your Dragon also have a chance if you are able to avoid attacks, regenerate and take advantage of a few opportunities to fire your opponent. Diversity is good for the game and it would be boring if you were always fighting against agility or weapon planes. The problem is that Defense planes really lack agility and speed and damage potential (which includes not only damage but also tracking, reload, lock range...). I think that these deficiencies are insufficiently balanced by features other than those related to resistance, especially armor regeneration. That's why I would not buy the Achilles or the Nightwing, despite their statistics may seem impressive.
    Alternatively, something very good for the game might be to increase the weight of Stealth. That would be interesting if defense planes with extra stealth became very hard to hit with missiles. But for now, the real impact of stealth in game remains elusive at least for me.

  54. Does anybody know when the next update will come? I thought it was scheduled right after the Paladin release. Do you know the schedule for planes release after the Stilleto? I know that some clever folks have been able to dig through Zi2 files to find such informations in the past. If you know, let us know !-)

    1. I don't think so. I got the achilles too and it is the best plane out there in my opinion: before buying it my SR was 4625, now it is 6000.

  59. This is a question to the premier league players (SR > 3000): Who of you has already bought the R-94 Achilles, fully upgraded it and flew it in versus against top shot agility and weapons class fighters. What are your experiences? Has the Achilles the potential to be a Reaper- or Hawken-killer?

    1. Gee I hope not since I have both. ;-)

      Seriously though, as usual The Kid has something good to say. While the Dragon and even the Raven are great in Survival, I would never use them in Versus. The Dragon is good to at least wave 22 but it is a flying tank with armor, agility and speed of one. We really only have two classes of planes that are good in Versus. If would be nice if some Defense class plane would be good in Versus.

    2. I got the achilles and i fully upgraded it (except energy regen which is pointless in my opinion because this is a defense class plane)the feedback is: Wow! This plane is a monster!
      I fought a fully upgraded hawken (his missiles were super strong) with 33k SR (I have 4800) when it wasn't much upgraded yet and i got a 0-0 draw doing a circoling match so its agility can be matched by the energy.
      Concluding: If u have the possibility, this plane is a must to get, you will forget the green ea-something lol.
      I already posted this comment at almost the top of comment wall. And read my comment above.

  61. When the Rath and Iron Fang leaked without images last month, there was an Anonymous who "did a little digging in the metalstorms content lists an found photos of the iron fang and rath." (See "Stealth release of X-23 Nightwing!" section of this blog). Is anybody able to dig into the present content list and post a pic of the Ice Wolf? I guess a lot of players following this blog, would appreciate this, including myself. :-)

  67. I heard that you cannot play this game without buying coins. So I went ahead and earned a total (currently) of 302 blue coins with ONLY free offers and video ads.

  68. The ice wolf is out! It looks epic,
    But the price is now up to 300 coins, so disappointed...
