When many people think of a MMO, they think of a Fantasy MMORPG like World of Warcraft or Guild Wars, but there are actually many different types of MMOs. For example, lets take a look at the Flight “Simulator” type of MMO. We will start with the game World of Warplanes which is made by Wargaming.net. I earlier looked at World of Tanks from this publisher so lets see how this one fares.
The settings for World of Warplanes are actually quite decent, I am playing the game at 1280X768 with the different settings ranging from low to high, so there is a very large room for improvement in frames rate or looks if needed. At these settings, the game actually played really well, having frames per second between 15 and 30; for the most part, the game stayed around 17-20 FPS. Even at these frame rates, I never felt like I had no control over my planes, and if you see me miss my shots, it has nothing to do with the game, but with me not leading my targets correctly and flying a brick for a plane. At the end of the day, I felt like World of Warplanes plays great on the Surface Pro.
