Eagle Dynamics updated Open Beta again. The patch contains some fresh fixes for the recently released F-14, F-18, and Mig-19. Eagle Dynamics also improved their bug reporting tool with message windows allowing you to describe what you were doing when the game crashed. The studio, often been criticized for their poor support in the past, is doing their best to improve the situation and fix bugs timely.

They also confirmed a date for the withdrawal of the old Bonus scheme. Good news, you will have a fair share of time to take advantage of your remaining points.

Rather than have Bonus Program points expire at the launch of the ED Miles, we will allow Bonus Program points to expire one year from their earning or until March 31st, 2020, whichever comes first.
