Is it me or they broke this mode again, in favor of the attacking side? I played about 8or 9 games with tier 5-6, only saw defense winning once. I won a couple attacks even at wave 1, which makes getting 3rd mission really hard to get, since games dont last long. Even when it did, still didnt get anywhere close to needed rank ( only played heavies ).

Who cares when you have defeats like this one?

And victories like this :teethhappy: (that's crew score without boost).

 

The best mode of them all. Target rich environment, dakka-dakka like there's no tomorrow!

With unbalanced teams this mode will never became balanced. 

 

What they should do is remove bombers (those who are played by humans, not generic bomber flights) and remove attack planes, and remove strongholds as well. One team of fighters should attack bombers, and another team of fighters should escort them.

...and in the meantime I enjoy in loses again.

 

 

Honestly people, you can do only one of these two things:

 

1) moan about broken mode, unbalanced this and that, feel miserable

2) shoot your heart out, enjoy in an absolute xp, crew training and silver bonanza regardless of w/l.

 

Why do we play this game? To fly and shoot planes. Well here it is, maxed out full. Enjoy. Forget this idiocy called winrate, fly and shoot stuff!

Sneaky Snake Sniper is now officially surpassed by the Freakin Flying Flea - unvisiebl, of course.

Its ok balanced now, if defenders know what they do they win, just ignore attackers and kill bombers...

This escort mode is not as bad as the previous ones ... give them a few more events and they will get there.

I would honestly like it to be a permanent choosable mode.

It's fun, isn't it? Plus the extra income and xp are very nice. Though I suspect it would sort of unbalance the intended progress, and since the xp needed at higher tiers were recently adjusted, I don't think WG would go for yet another change like that.

Hey WG, here's an idea: since you announced this game specific premium time, how about the reward here being able to choose this mode?

I was in one battle with apartclassic and saw him racking up incredible numbers of personal points - in a P-40 !

I saw both sides win, it seems to be more balanced than before.

Seriously, who cares about winning in this mode ? 200gold for 5 victories are a joke and the daily missions anyway don't work. But the XP and silver you can get are incredible, especially the free XP that you can then use for WoT.

I started playing on the Asia server yesterday evening. 

Grinded as fast as possible to the tier IV Ki-43 to play escort mode. Great for credits and plane/crew exp. Too bad that because of time difference the server was empty and almost only played vs bots.

Personally, I don't care about the credits or the XP, since I have plenty of both and don't need more.  Therefore, it comes down to being able to win.  This mode is badly unbalanced in favour of attackers once again, which makes flying on the defending side boring - especially as I see people quitting the game immediately they see they're defending.

If the defenders deplete the attackers respawns they can win.
