  2. 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

    1. 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.

    2. i'm lost too... what do u mean firefly got a new plane number 151?

    3. 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.

    4. WARNING! Long 'speculation' post!!

      Based on the new game setting files, the following planes are somehow NOT listed:
      NV-7 Sparrow
      K-12 Panther
      RA-M84 Titan
      GP-87 Warlock
      LM-22 Ares
      F-113 Eagle-X
      Sky Demon
      D-112 Eagle

      And the following are the refeaturing schedule for existing plane:
      Zephyr - Aug 20 - 26, 2012
      Hurricane - Aug 27 - Sep 2, 2012
      Paladin - Sep 3 - 9, 2012
      Spectre - Sep 10 - 16, 2012
      Marauder - Sep 17 - 23, 2012
      Viper - Sep 24 - 30, 2012
      Dragon - Oct 1 - 7, 2012
      Rath - Oct 8 - 14, 2012
      Paladin - Oct 15, 2012 (12 hours only?!)
      Wasp - Oct 22 - 28, 2012
      Mako - Oct 29 - Nov 4, 2012
      Saber - Nov 5 - 11, 2012
      Marauder - Nov 12 - 18, 2012
      Stiletto - Nov 19 - 25, 2012
      Dynasty (!?) - Nov 26 - Dec 2, 2012
      Cyclops - Dec 3 - 9, 2012
      Helix - Dec 10 - 16, 2012
      Zephyr - Dec 17 - 23, 2012
      Red Widow - Dec 24 - Dec 30, 2012
      Liberty - Dec 31, 2012 - Jan 6, 2013
      Rath - Jan 7 - 13, 2013
      Tigris - Jan 14 - 20, 2013
      Spectre - Jan 21 - 27, 2013
      Hurricane - Jan 28 - Feb 3, 2013

      It'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.

    5. Perhaps these are new setting for 4.1.5?

      Delete
  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.

  6. 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

    1. 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.

    1. 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. :/

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  11. What are these numbers? As in the 149 (Sparrow) and 151 (Firefly)?

    ReplyDelete
  12. 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.

    1. It's obviously not very accurate since the Marauder was released instead of the Zepher

    2. You are wrong! The zephyr is also there!
      Just below the wraith.

    3. 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.

      Delete
    4. If it were a schedule for replacing existing planes, when why would the same plane, eg. Marauder & Spectre, be listed multiple times? Just curious.

    5. 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.

    6. That place, my friend, the one in which you can fight honestly in engagements decided almost entirely by skill, is called SGAS.

    1. 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.
