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.

 

:(   I was in my il40p doing 29k points yesterday and not winning anything. Fml

It's still a little harder to win when attacking than defending but not impossible. 

 

Just enjoy the massive xp and credit rewards, plus tokens for Winged Legend, Ace, Thunder, McCampbell etc, much easier to get in this mode than conquest.

I also lost some battles on attacking side ; attackers overall seems to have an advantage, but not as bad as before. 

Anyway, matchmaker fucks  up battles anyway ...

I have had a 45k pp defeat.

 

On other unrelated news, I'm chatbanned. :3

 

Sure, mode is profitable, and going from almost stock to elited in a single tier VI win, is cool, but I got the HF crates and won't bother doing other missions, the inconsistency of the w/r in this makes the "5 wins" mission a teeth-grinding effort.

I wish we could opt out of being part of these missions, I for one detest this latest one I find that if you are on the defence of the ground targets you will 99.99999%  be on the losing side, totally un balanced but made worse by the time you wait to respawn and only to respawn way back meaning the amount of extra time it take to get back into the battle, but most of all it is SOOOOOOO BORING, all IMO of course, I will just be glad when this phase is over.

Sure.  I'm not saying winning whilst defending is impossible, but the odds are heavily in favour of the attacking side.  That makes the majority of games a bore.

The bombers are definitely harder to kill, time to kill is significantly increased - I think this is the main reason the odds are in favour of attackers now. By the time the defenders chew through one group of bombers, the other one is already at least halfway there. It makes the battles less one-sided as previous iteration of this mode, but a lot more ammo is being consumed ;)

To give you a flavour of my day so far, I've had 11 battles.  I've only been on the attacking side 3 times and I've lost 7 out of 8 defending battles.  That's tiresome.

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.

 

 

There you are, one P-40 M-105 as ordered - delivered asap :)

It's an absolute sh*t mode. I don't win and I don't need credits and I don't need xp and I don't want any of the crate planes. I bought an i-5 few days ago to do missions for few tokens so........ see you there..... pew pew pew little sealf**k.

Hey, I've just tried the tactics you described and it works like magic! This thing is a true battering ram!

 

So for all wondering how's Goblin like, this is my third game ever in it, and here's what a very mediocre game gives:

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

 

Oh, yeah: concentrating on the bomber without dealing with their escort is a way to "win" defense all right. I mean, it's the fastest way to go back to hangar while still not doing blatantly bannable stuff like quiting

I think he meant to say "ignore the action on the deck, all concentrate on the bombers" which actually is a wining strategy. Heavier hitters go for the bombers, the nimbler ones for the escort.

Well, one of the way to maximise your probability of being on the attacking side is playing GAA and bombers. I'm tempted to do it for the 200 gold, for once.

 

Btw, weak-willed me is currently at 4/5 with the fighter mission. :hiding:

 

There better be some good stuff in those crates, WG. (only got 1 hangar slot in my first 2) :angry:

 

*edit* there, done. In my 5 victories, there were 3 grueling, grade 1/2 defense wins won with like 1/10 point remaining, and 2 attack wins won at the first wave. :sceptic:

Finally free from the stress of winning, time to mindlessly pewpewpew stuff and not care :playing:

Personally, i dont care about loosing in this mod, because with the premium,5x bonous because of v day and the insane scores you can pull out, you can grind lines insanaly fast...Yesterday alone i got 70k+ xp on my Ju 288C and today i bought the Ju 287! Now, i am going to do the same with the Tu-10(so i will get the Tu-12 day one once i am able to). Flying premium planes and having the premium account on top makes you print money like crazy......so who cares if the mod is inballanced...which its fine for me! What breaks the mod's balance is the MM alone! its in the best state that  has ever been. When i was in a combat role,if i played well(my mates included) we won, if we didnt,we lost...its not as broken as it was in Blade of Vengeance....
