Now go play it, so they can post you on the wall of shame about how despicable sealclubber you are.

RFC has a unique position here, he has all the planes researched and bought (if i understood him correctly). But even him have the reason to use Bomber Escort bonanza.

 

Out of four days, I couldn't play two. But in the first day I could, I trained a bunch of pilots sitting in some planes with 1 or 2, 3 skill points. Now every one has at least four, and one got his 10th skill point that was missing and joined my small elite group of "10 and over". On the second day I've researched the incoming US tier 8 bomber, made 100k xp easily from zero on B-32 in less than two hours (could have been one game less if it wasn't for Aimless :-).

The next Bomber Escort, in two days I will research p.1101,  HG III and F-84F all from tiers 9. In two days max. After that, it's Top Gun school for making more 10pointers.

 

Use the unique opportunities this battle mode offers, much better than flying under the radar on I-III.

Dont think there is anymore escort this event, and i really hope its the last time we see it. Or at least change the missions because the way they are now , too much time involved to even get two crates, compared to attrition and invasion.

Well, let me say that any time the WoWP team wants to have a x5 weekend it's fine with me.  That doesn't have to be tied to an event, though doing it during the Bomber Escort mode when high scoring games are available made it all the more useful.

 

I don't quite have all the aircraft.  I have all the premium/reward/gift planes currently in the game (110).  I have all the currently available regular aircraft except for the tier 8 and tier 9 German bombers.  Most of the pilots on my favoured aircraft are already skilled, though more skills never come amiss, of course.  I have more than 5 million free XP, approaching 500 million credits and plenty of gold (so much it looks like I'm going to have to use it in World Of Tanks), so for me these extravaganzas aren't quite as attractive as I should think they are for others.  But I reaffirm; any time the WoWP team wants to do this it will be welcome.

It is Conquest indeed, with daily missions enabled as well - plust the Heavy Turbulence.

Just logged in and out again as I'd rather not play this mode.

Although I haven't researched loads of planes and don't have a ton of money, I find the event rather boring.

 

The benefits IMHO don't outweigh the pain.

 



I wonder if we had the option to choose normal conquest or the events how many would participate?

Erm... this IS the normal Conquest, with some added elements like missions for plane type. Not sure what you mean.

And people quit early like crazy, because of limited time to do the missions and win condition.

Neither do I lol.

I suppose it's the sub missions for gold that put me off.

It ain't much fun losing 75% of games.

Also the influx of pros in flights utterly dominating the match that makes me not want to play it.

I still think we need an option to choose normal conquest or the event modes.

Your earnings may be crappier, because there are more human players. Most of the humans are not easy targets like the bots, so you may struggle farming them as easy as the bots.

...even better, remove 5 Victories condition. Not a single one of us here said anything good for it. Only brings misery, quitting and going under the radar in I-III.

 

Replace it with, dunno, "kill 500 planes" or whatever, something that is entirely up to the player - not to the whims of RNG.

Actually i find humans much easier targets than bots, even skilled ones, because they tend to stick to finishing their target and fly stright rather than spamming insane evasive maneouvers the second you shoot at them like bots do ( high tier ofc ). The problem is that the more humans , the more unbalanced games are, to the point that i regularly see games with 5 specialised planes versus none. yeah , i know you will say that doesnt matter because of skills, but its still 1-2 equipment more for every plane than the other team. So preety big advantage if you ask me, for the other team to not be discouraged from the start. Also like z-m said, remove the freaking win condition or change the missions to allow people time to do them. Like a single stage for a week long , maybe with merged prizes ( 200 gold once instead of 2x100 ) . For a 50% WR guy, half of his games are wasted time because of this condition. So if you need 1 hour to do 5 wins, that means 2 hours of play. So its a natural reaction that people will abandon games taht seems lost to reduce that wasted hour.

During bomb escort i was lucky enough to get 3 days premium in one of my crates,so i had 4 with the added 1 day from the weekend mission.I grinded

  • the Ju 288C all the way to Ju 287,
  • the Tempest and got the Sea Hawk and only one module needs research now (the rockets)
  • Won the Tu-10 and grinded all the xp needed for the Tu-12(so i will straigh up buy it the moment i can)

This weekend was a really good oportunity to get everything you needed Royal...i had both the Ju 288A and C and i know how frustrating/boring is to play,but with an added booster,that you can buy sicne you have so much gold,the days of premium you can buy in the game store and the 5x first win...it was so easy and painless to grind all these lines.I had 48k xp on my 288C and got the 287 in two days playtime! Then went and did the same with the Tu-10 in two days as well...and i used the tempest only for the daily win which i was lucky the majority of the days and got them first try(though not a single of my games was bellow 28k score)...i had 24k xp on my tempest...i won 4 games and got the sea hawk!!!!!!

 

A missed opportunity if you ask me....there will be more pain and boredom now.... Bomb escort is not perfect...but the gigantic gain in xp and money will outweight every flaw for me(unless i one day become like you,and there is nothing left to do) and its still the most enjoyable "special" mod ever created...

 

(If you want my opinion...all the German bombers are boring apart from the Ju 287(which is boring as well but rewarding)...You are gonna like the Ruskies more...at least i do and its weird because i dont like lines with identity crisis. Ruskies are the way comrade!!)

Gold missions should be last in my opinion....or could be done with the supplies missions simultaneously
