World of Warplanes is out of beta, and now taking flight as a full on release. The free-to-play MMO is just like Wargaming's other major money maker World of Tanks, except this one has you flying planes.
Obviously. What the hell did I just write? That is the most obvious statement that's probably ever been written by a person since the invention of writing. Goddamn I'm tired. I'm just going to leave all this in.
4.5 million players took part in the beta testing phase, pretty impressive for a beta. Progression has been reset for the testers, but all the special gift planes, medals, and award emblems carry over for them, so that's nice.
