FYI....
A few months back I downloaded ios11. Instantly my gyro began freaking out.  I got apple to swap out my ipad pro for a new one.  This time i didn’t upgrade to ios11.  Haven’t had a single gyro issue since then.   Today...for the heck of it, I updated this one to ios11.  The first AW game I played the gyro threw me sideways.      Why?   Tell me how it’s the device and not the update.

So far I have not been able to get 13.0.2 to crash at all anywhere whatsoever.  Anyone else?

-Brian
No crashes for me. Thing is I rarely had an issue with crashing. 
I attempted about 15 games just now.  A couple dropped back to 2 player and worked great.  A couple were 3-4 player and worked great.  All the other attemps ended up with the famous "Game center has lost connection to players. Please try again" message.  For whatever reason (maybe lack of sufficient players) I could see how this would be frustrating to someone just trying out the game.  These days no one wants to stare at a match up screen for 15 seconds and have to keep trying to play a game.

Turn up sensitivity for sharper turns and evasive maneuvers.
Set "traps" with firecrackers to surprise your enemies.
Change direction often when flying to throw off your opponent.
Ricocheting rubber bands can reach opponents that are out of sight.
"Throwing" firecrackers against some walls will damage opponents on the other side.
Practice shooting ahead of your opponents flight path to get more ammo hits.
Flying at different elevations helps keep you unpredictable.
Don't take it personally. Bob C 88 quits on everyone   :D

I'm almost ready with this new version, and this morning I added one last thing:  Pro Tips.  Now, when you're waiting for a match it shows some random tips at the bottom of the screen.  The ones I have now are these:

1.  Any upgrade removes ads.
2.  Suction cups can't hurt the squirrel.
3.  Bonus coins also give you speed, health, and ammo.
4.  Redeem your Reward Points for free planes.
5.  Tell your friends to get more players online

Does anyone else have any other tips you think I should add in?

Spawn Killing BK gives you bonus lives?

The 2 or 4 player option has been gone for a very long time - probably a year.  If you use the GKMatchmaker dialog you can manually control the number of players in the match, but that's the only way to do that anymore.

-Brian
Ah.   I suppose I've been seeing that 2-4 player choice because I reverted to an older ios.  Ever since my gyro went out the minute I loaded ios11 I went back to an older ios 10 point something and had zero issues.       If I go to settings and turn off "simple matchmaker" I still get my 2-4 player option.

You mean no option for Invites, right?   The new system is actually exactly the same as the other in that it tries to find 4-way matches, but will take whatever it can find.  It's all the same under the hood, the only thing different is that it's not using GKMatchmaker to display what's going on, and it also removes the ability to Invite friends since that's a GKMatchmaker thing.  That's the main reason why I put in a toggle switch in the settings to go back to GKMatchmaker - so anyone who needs that capability can go back to it.

-Brian
No, I mean no option to select if you want two or four player.
Ok...so I just downloaded the newest build and this is what I got...
An automatic attempt to achieve a four player match (which I actually don't care for because it takes longer and often drops out).  Then....after waiting for that matchup for about 15 secs I got the pop up box that game centaer had lost connection to players".         At least with the two player option I could almost always get a match quickly.

I think this morning's build will finally squash the crashing.  So far there have been no crashes according to TestFlight and Xcode's crash logger which is a good sign.


-Brian
Played maybe 6-8 games so far and no crashing.  I did notice there is no option for multiplayer.  It goes straight to the match up screen.  I'm ok with that because I usually play 2 player anyway.

Since you aren’t interested in my previous suggestion...how about adding 10% speed to ALL the planes, change it up a little...more speed equals more fun...try it for a month...see how everyone likes it....something simple for you to do...come on Biggie G...it will be well received...
I personally think unlimited wind would be cool.  Maybe even make that one of the things you gain by collecting coins.

Question...
Before I take my almost new ipad pro back to apple because the gyro freaks out continuously after the last ios update....   
Can you explain why (no matter how hard I try) I have never been able to get the gyro to faulter at all in tutorial mode.   I can finish a game where my plane crashed out 3 times in a given game, immediately go to that same map (with the same plane) in tutorial mode, and fly like A hyperactive moth around a porchlight for 10 minutes and NEVER NEVER have the gyro fail. ????

Careful what you say here.  Comments get deleted if they annoy Danny.  I see why this place is deserted.  Apparently it's the official "Dan-gea" forum.  LOL!

What about giving the crybabies and only them Ultimate ammo,wind,shield, guaranteed win and let them take over this forum and ultimately the game itself so that the 10 or so die hards have something to do in their old age , playing the game that they've played for umpteen years because cash is tight and Xbox and PlayStation is out with their budget, lol.

A more genuine request from me Brian is , please think about a new airwings , built from scratch, though using all the winning and addictive themes that have influenced and won the loyalty over the years, new planes , levels etc, the energy you have put into the game over the past few weeks is great , though I don't care where my enemy lives or their flake out score , honestly , maybe I would have been three years ago , feels like it's flogging a dead horse .

I'd like to see a large room deathmatch 8 player no health , a tight level three player with no health , an automatic match of best player v best player available on log in..

No ones ever addressed the team match up guys, nope , never, the crybabys champion this behaviour on the secondary forum , indeed they even have threads with call outs to others to match up and hunt other players down , really they do .

Genuine players like Big Dog etc all gang up and play to kill others first before they even fire a shot at each other   We all know who they but no mention of a fix for that as the crybabies like to compete in the same manner .

Brian, as a major fan of the game, I beg, please take a few weeks or months to give us a complete new game, you have a major following all waiting in anticipation , I only log on now and again as I've clocked up too many hours , current levels just do not excite anymore , jeezo I've even handed BK the No1 spot Ive dominated for 4 years .

Anyways, thanks for what was an excellent game Brian.
You rambling and complaining will be and should be ignored as always Danny boy.

Brian, Ever considered dropping the time on the wind button altogether?   Leave the wind button but make it so you have unlimited wind?  Might add a bit more action to the game and you wouldn't have to worry about pumping that thing all the time.   Just a thought.

I've gotten a few emails about what appears to be incorrect flake and win ratio calculations, but it's actually working correctly.  The issue is that this average is over a 4 day period, so if several "Wins" get purged out it can throw the ratio off making your win ratio decrease even tho you won the previous match.  Same with the flake ratio.  Say you played 10 games around lunchtime 4 days ago, and you won them all.  Now, 4 days later, you play the game at lunch time, well, those 10 wins are thrown out and the new averages could very well be lower.

-Brian
Silly question but, I can see why the flake out ratio would be based on a short period of time (that way a person can correct their bad habits and get e reset) but why are we resetting the win ratios at all?
