Omg... The Spitfire I statpadders will be in heaven... And the Spit I/Beau flights spam is going to break the servers. Not sure if this was the best choice of planes...

They are the most popular (e.g. - the most players have them) fighters. The reason is simple: the more players have planes that participate in the event, the more of them can try. :)

I sort of thought so :) Incentivising, aren't we? ;)

 

Also - 'you have reached your quota' already....

I hope this doesn't mean there is a "win condition" for the missions ??  :unsure:

 

And I'm very curious to see how many Spits come out of the closet. Everybody claims that they don't fly Shitfires because they're OP noob planes and too easy.

No, it doesn't mean. There's no win condition, just a phrase :)

Nope...not a campaign I will enjoy. As a matter of fact nothing you people have come up with is remotly enjoyable. I work and have no time to spend hours on end playing this and in this format. Hanging around hoping for change. Who ever has fun go ahead knock yourself out but not for me  now or for the last 2 years almost.

You only have to play ten battles across 3 days to stand a chance of winning something, it's not really THAT time consuming if you dont want it to be.

Ok. Then I will play my FW 57 and try to protect those new low tier players  against those evil statpadder-sealclubbers.

Wait, does it take the total of your 10 best games, or the total of your games ?

Either. To paraphrase the original news item:

"get onto the winners list for

1. the highest number of Personal Points for destroying aerial targets over your 10 best battles

2. the highest number of Personal Points for destroying aerial targets in any number of battles!"

 

So, play 10 battles and hope they were good (enough) or play more games which will increase your overall total and might improve your best 10

 

Seems like a pretty good balance to me - consistently good players should be able to rack up a good set of Top 10 scores in say 15 battles (always going to be those 600:0 games where no one scores well) and the rest of us can grind it out

Not sure I almost never get anything in supply crates and "Please note that there's no way to track your in-game progress" is just lol! Although it is the same, because like when it was possible to tracking in game and I was on 21st place and score for Top division below 20 place, but miracle 3 others player in last time ( although I ve played also last hour/time ) skip me and I ve finished on 22 place lol, so not sure..By the way, what this means - " You can not be in the winners list for two or more ratings simultaneously" .Is it players can play only in one period or you can play in all period, but not in both ratings?

So there are in total 6 Ratings for 3 period and they write - "You can not be in the winners list for two or more ratings simultaneously". It looks like you can participate only in one period than?

Battles are crammed with specialised Spitfires already. This weekend is going to be awful. If you aren't the best of the best you are going to be clubbed, hard.

Of course ... bugs always stay, they only add new stuff.

You can participate in all three periods but you'll be placed only in one of them. You see, it goes like that: we count all your results for each period in the beginning then leave the highest rank you received. For example, you scored enough points to be on the 5th place in the Mastery Period I, the 8th place in the Mastery Period II and the 2nd place in the Mastery Period III — you are placed to the Mastery Period III, as your place is higher. Probably, it's worth playing at least 10 battles in each Period to maximize your chances for a better place but that depends on your time and desire :)

The Me-262 is one of the 3 most popular fighters in period 3 ?? Somehow I doubt that ...

That's not the definition of 'most popular' ...
