So the bomber event is over.

I noticed that the gobal mission progression was around 50 something %.

Guessing not that many liked how hard it was to end up on the attacking side (?)

I have to say that as long as I didn't play the bombers it wasn't too bad. Frustrating at times but still had some fun in the end.

I really like the basic idea though of a bomber intercept or escort style game.

 

I'm really hoping if this event comes up again they'll have a look at balancing it out more.

 

Anyone know what the next stage is?

Actually, next should be "invasion" https://worldofwarpl...vengeance-2019/

Damn if I know what that does mean.

In the site it says "Stage 3, Battle mode: Invasion". "Attrition" is stage 1 and 4.

Invasion: here

I said that there was a change: the number of strategic bombers in the waves, and this actually affected the balance on the whole. 

 

Were there more or less bombers, I can not remember from the first time. And how did it affect balance ?

It looked as if the attacking side on average had a lot of problems getting thru ... but funnily enough I also had a few great wins flying escort.

It looked like more bombers to me compared to last time. Or at least that's my perception.

The attacking side can win, I had quite a few wins as attacker, but unfortunately not due to the bombers/groudn attack planes input. To win the attackers need to win the attrition game - bombers and ILs etc are simply farmed mercilessly both by bots and players. I don't think I'll try to do the missions for those two types of planes, seeing what's happening in my games - strongholds are flipped by aerial kills over them, not through bombing/rocketing, and I pity the players trying (and try not to attack them, if I remember)

 

I have tried to develop the Do217m and BF109F  during the event and had far more fun and success in the fighter on attack and defence. Bomber is very frustrating with 3-4 heavies making straight for me, but going where they are not does give results as far as aircraft xp and credits. No hope of affecting the outcome in the Do271M with weak turrets as I watch the bomber groups being destroyed by rapid spawning heavies.

 

BF109F also got very good aircraft xp and credits per battle and I got to the BF109G fast. You need high flying, hard hitting fighter to take care of the heavies fast when you are attacking. Best games were spoilt with disconnection as the game ended several times, so had to guess what I did mostly.

Invasion is another broken mode that cant be fixed just like the bomber escort garbage. Simply because uneve number of fighter will never work. At least it has airbases for easier 500 gold farm. Let another quit early fiesta begin.

I won all my T8 escort battles in the XP58, i think it was 15 battles(is it that hard to add session stats to this game) and had no problem winning as attacker or defender maybe because there were not enough human targets that would hunt me, idk but it was very easy to get 30k PP in every of those 15 battles.

I don't know where the imbalance was, sure the defenders had it easy all they had to do was farm the GAs but it was just as easy to destroy all the stuff that came flying towards the bombers, the bots focused the bombers so hard that they ignored you even when you shot them in the back, it was never the goal to save the bombers, whether as defender or attacker you had to kill as many enemy planes as fast as possible to make the enemy team run out of respawns faster than your team and thats it. All in all a fun and very rewarding game mode, if the trash servers were not that annoying and i had more time to play i could have pushed my pilot from level 8 to 11 with some help from boosters.
