It's high time to choose the most effective multirole fighter through all western allied warbirds! How will we do it? With the help of competition of course!

PP for damaging targets doesn't depend on Tiers. You receive 10 Personal Points for every 1% of the target's HP.

I am curious:

  1. what planes do you guys think will perform best?
  2. what planes will you fly during the event?
  3. what planes would you like to fly during the event? (assuming you don't have the ones you would like to use during the event)

I haven’t read the event notes, but if it’s a true multi role requirement then it’ll be the Tornado or the Hunter hands down, I would guess.  Sneaky snipers not welcome!

Also why leave out the Seafang?

It’s not as good as the Tempest.  I speak as somebody who used to regard the Seafang as his favourite high tier premium.

Is it possible to use American and British Multiroles for double chance?

Yes, you can try both sides (and if you place at top 30 for both you will receive only one price for the better result - and same is for mastery and perseverance so you can place at top 30 at all four rankings but you have got only one price - and at other rankings your places will be free for others players).

As a noob and only based on what I've experienced,my answers to your questions are:

(1) For US....F94D...that gatling gun with a range of over 1000m combined with effective air to air rockets.For UK Tier 8 Tempest is a good bet and the only one I own on the list so

(2) I'll be flying that

(3) The afformentionded F94D

Of course  they aren't being based on their true intended multi role air to air and air to ground flexibility as ground targets dont count so anything with bombs is just a liability distraction from your main event role if you dont demount bombs to lose that impulse to blow crapup..the very occasional air to air rocket kill but generally I think take the bombs off to stay focussed

Having read the notes the non-multirole multiroles will be best, I think.  The F-94D is a good choice, but I would still fly the Hunter since it can do a lot of damage with those ADENs.

 

However, again the WoWP team come up with an idea pushing players to fly their aircraft, with the exception noted above, badly.  This belongs in the same corner as "kill 5 enemy targets in one game with a rear turret".

I suppose you mean, those planes are also geared toward ground attack?

My Tempest is sporting ultimate aerodynamic pylons, so there's but a marginal difference in flight performance mounting rockets or not. But, with that objective, should I bother with opportunity ground attacks ? It might get the team cap points, it might also hinder my progress in the event: rocketing 3 ground targets would maybe cap that army base, but event dictates I'd climb and chase that HF ADA.

 

Frankly, considering how long it took me to game the bomber event _ that is, favour 6 objects targets above 4 or even partially destroyed stuff _ I think I'll still going to chose "attack ground targets to win". But then again, even last week, I ended up 1 spot higher in perseverance than what I would have in mastery.

@ Trusty1

 

Your answers seem far from noobish. I have considered those options too, even if I do not own all the planes in those lines.

I have the Tempest but I can't do more than 9k points for damaging air targets from the tests I made.

I bought last night the F2G and the F94 D, but I'm very low on materials to hope I can specialize any of them in the short remaining time. The logical options should be the tier 10 planes but I have none in these lines yet. I was wondering if the F84 F would do better than the F94D due to better handling, though F84F is out of the question for me.

So I'm kind of uncertain what to choose for the event, british or american. I have a feeling that there are more competent people than me that will be playing american planes and I know for sure a few that are quite good with the F94 D.

On the other hand I think more will choose the british lower tiers.

 

Taking into account the fact that I may not be able to play on saturday more than a couple of hours at best, this leaves me with really puzzled on what to chose for the event.

Agreed! I’m enjoying the overall event but surely it would have been possible to base this challenge on PP for combined damage, then we could fly multi-role aircraft how they were designed to be used (rather than stripping off bombs or rockets so we won’t be tempted!)

Wow, leaving out Seafang? But yes, I understand, people who do not have him would stand no chance :p

9000 in "Damage to airial targets"? Are you sure its not "personal points" you are looking at? A very easy thing to do.

I really struggle to get near 4000! So if you really get that in damage, you are clearly destined for a good placement in the ranking. :medal:

I said "I can't do more than 9k points for damaging air targets ". Those are personal points for damaging air targets not damage points or points of damage. When you finish a battle you get a post battle window with 3 tabs. In the personal tab you have a summary of your battle performance. Next to "personal points" you have a question mark. If you hover your mouse cursor over that question mark a context menu or window (whatever you want to call it) will appear, that will list what you scored personal points for. You will see there somewhere around the middle of the list the performance for "Personal points for damaging air targets" or something similar. Those points are the focus of this event, not the PP as a whole or damage points. Though there is a direct proportionality between damage done to aircrafts and those points, they are not the same.

 

And no, I can't do 9k damage especially at tier 8. I was referring to points for damaging air targets. That should include all air targets: enemy planes, air defense planes and attack flight planes (bomber bots).

Also, due to a long lasting flu or maybe some kind of infection my whole body aches and I have to swallow pills just to be able to sit on the chair. Even my eyes are painful. Saturday I will also have a long drive to take 600 km or more, which given the circumstances will feel like a lot more. Lack of the best planes added and I am clearly  not  destined for a good placement in the ranking. I will do my best to compensate though, because if one does not take on the challenges of destiny, he would not be entitled afterwards to call it his own destiny, but the destiny other factors set for him. :izmena: 

(Just trying to look brave and end this on an optimistic note.) :D (Though I know too well the frustration and effort factor that lies ahead.)

Can you share the calculation for air defense aircraft? The above is definitely not the case for air defense aircraft.
