Any reason why in this map (which seem to be rotation far too often recently) there are no ADF on either of the factory caps at any point in the battle.  This makes playing figthers a total waste of time for this map, and the map is far too big with just 4 caps for movement around the map at just about any tier, unless you have a very fast aircraft, maybe at tier 9, preferably tier 10. and unless you pick the right side to go on, your dead and then the battle is over.

 

The lack of ADF is key, as realistically only multi-roll, attack or bombers can cap without killing ADF

It's a map for heavies, GAAs and multiroles.  Not every map should be for turn fighter jockeys.

I suppose you could support your GAA and Bombers at some point. Team work would make a refreshing change eh?

On Day Of Reckoning you have options as a fighter.  If you're a speed fighter with good altitude performance then you can intercept enemy bombers on the way to "your" plant.  Alternatively, you can rush for the airfield beyond the plant and if you take it, return to the middle to take down enemy GAAs (if they have taken "their" plant) on the way to "your" plant.  Or, you can interrupt at "their" plant.  If your team fails to take "your" plant you have plenty of fighting to do there anyway.

If you want to play conservatively, and in a fighter you should remember you are supposed to defend at least as much as attack, then once "your" plant is taken you have the option of sitting there and killing attacking aircraft.

 

Complaining about this map suggests you're not really clear what the role of a fighter is.  Even a Yak-15 can do well on this map if you know where to put it.

Yeah, working as a team with 9 bots !!

You want to attack the mining plant and your GA/bomber bots pick the nearest garrison ...

That’s not what happens on Day Of Reckoning.  The GAAs go to the nearest plant and the bombers fly to the furthest if they are bots.

Once I hated this map, but meanwhile its ok even with fighters. The rocket base in the mid is essential and there are two airfields as well. Even the mining plants can be conquered with fighters after a while because someone is almost camping there and its good to help the GA/bombers of the own team. I like to camp at the rocket place or I attack it sometimes much too often. Even if it is red its possible to shoot two before getting killed.

^ That's not "Day Of Reckoning".  The map under discussion has two mining plants and two forward airfields.  You're thinking of either "Narrow Pass" (one military base and four garrisons) or, more likely, "Snow And Ashes" (one military base, two mining plants and two forward airfields).
