No updates on new plane today?
nope! and no stats on firefly yet. Both marauder and Tigris will be featured nextweek.
Damn I hate both those planes.....
new pilot icon is up now guys and it's free...
It's not that great, but whatevs... I like my radioactivity emblem/icon.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We appear to have some minor technical difficulties in the cockpit, and will be crashing shortly. Please brace for impact, and once again, thank you for flying with z2
No news on when Firefly be featured, BUT... at least we got the spec:Damage 10%Agility 12%Critical 6%Missile Reload 10%
Another weapon plane with agility improvement? Or is it agility plane with weapon improvement? I'm lost.Btw, following are notable changes after Z2L fixed the missing Sparrow and Sky Demon issue. There are now MUCH MUCH more files getting downloaded from the server, mostly new campaign related sounds, AND Firefly got new plane number: 151.
firefly (agility class)
New campaign missions?
i'm lost too... what do u mean firefly got a new plane number 151?
Got it. Firefly is in the new game setting files. As speculated previously, Firefly (Agility) is the new stock plane, costs 205 coins. And yes, Firefly was previously assigned to number 149, same plane number as Sparrow.
WARNING! Long 'speculation' post!!Based on the new game setting files, the following planes are somehow NOT listed:NV-7 SparrowK-12 PantherRA-M84 TitanGP-87 WarlockLM-22 AresF-113 Eagle-XSky DemonD-112 EagleAnd the following are the refeaturing schedule for existing plane:Zephyr - Aug 20 - 26, 2012Hurricane - Aug 27 - Sep 2, 2012Paladin - Sep 3 - 9, 2012Spectre - Sep 10 - 16, 2012Marauder - Sep 17 - 23, 2012Viper - Sep 24 - 30, 2012Dragon - Oct 1 - 7, 2012Rath - Oct 8 - 14, 2012Paladin - Oct 15, 2012 (12 hours only?!)Wasp - Oct 22 - 28, 2012Mako - Oct 29 - Nov 4, 2012Saber - Nov 5 - 11, 2012Marauder - Nov 12 - 18, 2012Stiletto - Nov 19 - 25, 2012Dynasty (!?) - Nov 26 - Dec 2, 2012Cyclops - Dec 3 - 9, 2012Helix - Dec 10 - 16, 2012Zephyr - Dec 17 - 23, 2012Red Widow - Dec 24 - Dec 30, 2012Liberty - Dec 31, 2012 - Jan 6, 2013Rath - Jan 7 - 13, 2013Tigris - Jan 14 - 20, 2013Spectre - Jan 21 - 27, 2013Hurricane - Jan 28 - Feb 3, 2013It's surprising that they have featuring schedule planned until Feb 2013. However, please take this with some grains of salt, as these are from the new set of game setting files. Anything can still change along the way.
Perhaps these are new setting for 4.1.5?
It probably means TGIF they fixed the numbering issue when the sparrow and the firefly were leaked.Btw: if those stats are true for the firefly,,, I shall save my blue coins. Stiletto works best for me right now.
Wtf I'd did not type TGIF... Stupid spell check.
Neither did I type "I'd"... -_-
Whats arong with marauder? When its used proparly its a killer. Evasion and speed to dodge bisnovats. Agility to outurn opponent and crutucal strine to deal 2X more damage. This plane is truly deadly
I agree. The Marauder is a fun little plane to fly. It's evasion seems to be very effective. I like flying it more than my Reaper.
Z2l apparently no longer needs my money cause I cannot even load the game. :/
That's because Z2L decided to throw in about 50 or so new files to be downloaded from their server in the latest update. It took me close to 10mins on WiFi just to launch MS:W. :/
I remember a guy offering to train you in the agility class on a different thread. I started out with the agility starter plane then transferred to the Dragon losing my agility touch. I just bought the Reaper and I want to master the Agility class again. PLEASE HELP!!! If you can, point me to the tread the offer is on or if the guy who was offering sees this contact me by game-center. My tag is Celtic-Thunder
These seem like simple placeholders to me.I doubt that even Z2 knows the schedule that far in advance and won't release a new plane until then. I say this is bogus.
What are these numbers? As in the 149 (Sparrow) and 151 (Firefly)?
More Detailed Firefly stats+10 Damage (Best in Class, same as Sparrow)+12 Agility (Same as Thresher)+6 Critical Strike (Best in Class)+10 Missile Reload (Best in class, same as Sparrow)You might say. No Energy but look at Reaper. So fly this plane like a reaper.
A anonymous guy posted the Upcoming plane releases till 2013 Feb. No Firefly in ut though
It's obviously not very accurate since the Marauder was released instead of the Zepher
You are wrong! The zephyr is also there! Just below the wraith.
It is a schedule to replace an existing plane.. Not a schedule for the release of featured planes which explains why Firefly was not listed.
If it were a schedule for replacing existing planes, when why would the same plane, eg. Marauder & Spectre, be listed multiple times? Just curious.
I have no idea.. I'm still trying to make sense of it myself! Since playing MSW for quite some time now, I've noticed a trend. They tend to release new planes almost on a weekly basis and they have one plane further down the list, which we have been calling the "existing" plane that they replace every so often. Not quite sure on the scheduling but based on the above post, it's the only thing I can think of that will be consistent with that schedule. Obviously Z2 will continue to release new planes and saves those for featured positions. I have so many planes now that I don't even realize when they replace existing planes anymore. I used to collect the planes but the more and more they release new ones, the more I am growing tired of collecting coins from Tapjoy. Ive grown more concerned about raising coins to buy these planes than I have been even playing the game. Its starting to ruin the game IMO and am actually starting to hope they stop creating new planes. It's too bad they don't have a classic mode without boosts and without all these new planes where we can play fairly and where skills actually mattered. A lot of these newer planes are making the former top planes obsolete IMO.
That place, my friend, the one in which you can fight honestly in engagements decided almost entirely by skill, is called SGAS.
i havent had any of these problems but the game's sound is muted for me. i can hear the music but not the jets or missiles or the characters talking
I had the same issue myself last night (i.e. no FX sound but there was music). I ended up closing the app completely and then starting it up again. That seemed to resolve the sound issue for me.
