I did open a mission for tornado, but it was impossible to be done in one day, and since it is a plane that will be in the research tree, I dropped it.

If Shinden was bot, I wouldn't dare. It was a  player, but noob.

OTOH later I did also head-ons against Shindens in La-11 and also survived.

Bots are breaking head-ons very early, players are stupid.

I bet that for additional 2 crates people can wait with grind.

And your theory doesn't explain much bigger difference than 11 to 7 - in the event Allies beat Axis in ration 5 to 1.

Like i said : 'vicious circle'.

That's not the topic for that.

There are still humans playing Axis planes, but they seem to be sticking to the higher tiers for the event, tier 7 and up, had 2 battles during this evenings event, one tiers 6 and 7 and the other tiers 7 and 8, where the Axis side had 4 or 5 human players on the teams.

Only had a very brief play of the event today.

One game I took out my t7 Ki-84. Bottom tier, jets everywhere. Another game myself and one other player both had 109-F's. The other team had three Spifire IX's. Rest of teams bots. It didnt end well. Oh well.

Yes. I got missions for Me 109 TL, t6 German bomber and t5 British multi role. Also I got t5 German bomber and Ki-43-Ic straight away whiteout missions. 

 

Try to open top middle box first, and to do it at 21:00 CET (right after event is done).

Got one for a DO-17Z today, 3 parts, 1st wasn't too bad, destroy 12 AAA (in one battle), the next is destroy 250 ground targets, which is pretty much impossible given the time frame and tier specs (4+), you lose 3 hrs for the Albion event, and most overnights, you can forget about playing much higher than tier 3 without a really long wait in the queue,  Add to that, most of us have to go to work during the day, so that gives very little time to complete a mission that would take a few days-weeks under normal circumstances. And I don't even know what the 3rd's mission requirements are...

 

The only plus side is that you can buy the mission with tokens (pretty sure that is what WG want's you to do by making the missions impossible) will hope to get a few in the Albion events battles tonight, but will wait if I don't till it comes available in the tech tree.

In 4 days you should be able to just grind the plane on your own.

I wonder where in the Germany tech-tree those bombers will come ? Already got two skilled gunners from loot-crates.

 

In the UK tree you can already see that the Hurricanes can be researched from the Skua, but the German tree just shows them far right, outside the tree.

Hopefully it will come from the Fw-57 heavy fighter. I really don't want to buy back the damned Fw-189-C  in order to get to the first bomber.

 

The very first day of this event, I played Axis, and received the DO 217M blueprints in a loot crate. Unfortunately I then had four or five days of nights, so did not have the time to try and complete it. It was a little disappointing. I have received both the Hurricane Mk.II & Tornado during the event though.

 

Yesterdays event was typical for the last few days. The first battle was all human players, and an easy win for Axis (I decided to play Allies). But the very next battle, the Axis side was all bots. Almost every battle after that was the same. Its a great shame because it could have been a really interesting, fun event.

Google trad from a russian dev :

 Yes, to study a bomber of the fourth level it will be possible with a heavy fighter Fw 57.

Thank god for that. Playing the Fw-189 once, was enough.

What happened yesterday ?!

I play only about 4, 5 battles per evening because of the inconvenient time (6-9PM) and yesterday for the first time in this event, the Axis teams I played against had half or more human pilots !! Lost 2 battles, which had never happened before ...

It seems to me the MM tries to concentrate any available human Axis pilots in the same games.

 

Playing as Allies, 90% of the time I've got games against all bots. But then occasionally you get games with roughly equal number of humans on both teams.

 

It's a fair system for those (few) people who still play Axis.
