11. List any issues you may have encountered or additional impressions & suggestions regarding the new mode

 

The missions were the real problem of the mode, because  some actively discourage players to not play the mode, but farm defense aircraft or something.

To me the missions should play into the mode.

 

The strongest missions for me were the get X points for Y, because that is exactly what happens, you play the mode to the best of your ability, but to be honest they are also quite flavourless, but mechanics wise they made sense.

Ground target ones are a bit of a mixed bag, Yes they are great to get people to play GAA/Bombers for a few matches, the trouble comes when people load out their HF or Multipurpose with bombs and rockets and basically become a ground version of defense fighter hunting, or they are thrown on defense and their bombs are suddenly useless.

1. More than 10

2. There are certain differences in the gameplay.

3. Both modes are equally interesting.

4. It is important. It is easier to win as a team, but you can also influence the course of a battle on your own.

5. Yes, it gives a clue to what is going on and helps making decisions.

6. The dynamics are excellent. A battle lasts exactly as long as it should.

7. It is clear which side is more likely to win.

8. No, some aircraft types are too strong, while some of them are almost useless in the mode.

9. Which aircraft type do you think is the most effective in the Invasion mode?

Fighters for defending.

Bombers for attacking.

10. Which aircraft type do you think is the least effective in the Invasion mode?

Multirole fighters.

11. Some fights have unballanced teams. For example - nobody can reach bombers. Too many bots can be not communicated and they fight and die for they own.

I'm not going to answer all the questions either but I did well in excess of 20  games and I have to agree with the majority of the comments already aired and it seems the game has broken mine!! I have been unable to play a game, select an aircraft or any of my missions since Sunday and no amount of tickets sent to you guys for help resolving my issue  has got any reply what so ever......WHY is this?????

Thought I'd have a couple of games tonight, however it's like I'm connected to the game without being connected (!), can go into a battle but no results screen, no evidence that the credits I've earned have been awarded and the missions list failing to load. Useless game at times.

Hi Sael , i‘m too lazy to answer all these questions, sorry. Invasion was ok for me, i did have fun. A bit unbalanced, yes. But it made my BF109 shine again as a defender, so thx for that. Actually, i do appreciate every variety from Conquest game mode as it is starting to bore me being the only piece of real content in WOWP.

Hello pilots,

We are strongly interested in analyzing your experiences with the new game mode Invasion down to the detail, so we have created an additional survey to gather your feedback.

Please reply with your answers without leaving anything out!
 

 

1. How many battles have your played in the Invasion mode?

 

  • More than 10

 

2. Is Invasion mode too similar to Conquest mode?

 

  • They are two clearly different modes.

 

3. Did you like Invasion mode more than Conquest mode?

 

 

  • No, Conquest mode is better but still with terrible map design in quite a few instances.

 

4. How important is teamwork in Invasion mode?

 

  • It is essential. You cannot win a battle on your own which is a fact lost on the players and, perhaps more importantly, on the game designers. You have few players and there skill level is low, so why make a 'complicated' game mode? Play test!

 

5. Is the battle interface (hints) in the Invasion mode clear?

 

  • Partially. I check the state of a battle if necessary.

 

6. How content are you with the dynamics of battles in the Invasion mode?

 

 

  • Battles end too quickly. I don't have enough time to influence the outcome. The Defenders kill the Attackers' Bombers and the game is over.

 

7. Is it clear in the middle of a battle what team is more likely to win?

 

 

  • It is clear which side is more likely to win. This is a serious question? If the Attackers manage a win, it's because the Defenders are all eating a sandwich. This was not play tested, was it? Be honest!

 

8. Are you satisfied with the role of each aircraft type in the Invasion mode?

 

 

  • No, some aircraft types are too strong, while some of them are almost useless in the mode. Ground Attack aircraft evaporate - at least the Bombers can try to use height as a defense mechanism.

 

9. Which aircraft type do you think is the most effective in the Invasion mode?

 

  • ​Bombers on the attack, high-altitude interceptors on the defending team.

 

10. Which aircraft type do you think is the least effective in the Invasion mode?

 

  • ​Ground Attack. They last for 30 seconds.

 

11. List any issues you may have encountered or additional impressions & suggestions regarding the new mode

 

  • Some of the mission requirements are a joke if you want the Premium aircraft.
  • If you just want fun and are not too bothered by the Premiums, the game isn't fun. Why? Lose on the attack and get bored when defending. Different maps maybe, but the game plays out the same way.

You have been trapped in this boring, repetitive, unplayable conquest nonsense an every mode you come up with revolves around it. I think war gaming has given up on warplanes and all the decent developers are working on ships and tanks...its so obvious, you don't have to be a genius to figure that out. New developers team with imagination and talent is needed sap!!! This game is dying so fast with all these ridiculous ideas. Not that I care any more the way the game is. I have stopped playing months ago. Just come to the forum on and off to see if a miracle has happened and I will admit to playing maybe one game for old times sake now and then before the whole thing goes down the drain.

4. How important is teamwork in Invasion mode?

  • probably, then the adverse team was not coop

 

5. Is the battle interface (hints) in the Invasion mode clear?

  • well, not really, I learned while playing

 

6. How content are you with the dynamics of battles in the Invasion mode?

 

  • Too fast, consequently some mission of westfall are difficult to achieve

i like the mission, i tried fixing the bugs by downloading wgcheck and letting it repair all files, and starting with a cleaned cache and such. it helps a bit.

 

i am glad the "predictive aim indicator" is gone. that was to childish of a game version. i think this is better. now you have to use your brain to aim :).

Bring back 1.9 or something as similar as possible would be my best advice to You. Invasion mode is the worst thing so far.

The problem is - they really are investing time, money and energy in this game... but they are heading the wrong direction. They took a wrong road. And I cant figure out how and why.

 

Probably 70% of players will say that this Invasion mode is bad... But they will introduce it anyway with only minor changes compared with this initial version. They would say that they will fix disbalance, bugs and maps... but in fact, they will just bring some animals and animated pilot fingers.

One short answer. It is completely unfinished and unbalanced. Pull this mode back and analyze your logs. You will see that the defender has the way better winrate.

Btw.how about using the poll function?

With the new mode giving more respawns to attackers it's even bigger crapthan before - one sided battles last longer.

​100% Agree

 

 

This game mode isn't appropriate as a public match, and making it the only mode for the whole weekend absolutely blows.

Screw your formatted reply you don't deserve it. This is by far the worst game mode I've played in over 20 different online games in the past 6 years. It is utter rubbish, no need for analysis. Fire the person who dreamt it up.... or we'll send in Vlad the Poisoner.

Note to wargaming staff.  If your hoping this will save warplanes, it won't.  Time to pay off any debt's while you can, and polish up that CV.  Rubbish like this will kill the game stone dead.

Sorry but this game right now is utter CRAP.

 

The bots are a waste of time as they do their own thing, players will not work together.

 

And as for these new game modes UTTER [edited]crap.
