I would call the total amount of battles necessary an issue.

Beaufighter vs Spitfire-Marathon
300 vs 50 planes destroyed
300.000 PP  vs 7.500 XP + 5.000 DMG (separate stages)
30 wins vs ONE win + conquering 5 airfields (separate stages)

 

Ahh good old days, when you could get good plain for little effort, in comparation with this, agree walk in a park..and I can shoot down with my Iron Maiden Supermarine Spitfire Mk Vb IM any Beaufighter V which attack me..not sure worth of play this marathon for me, but for new players and those who need it, pretty much good opportunity to get some special plain..

It is so frustrating trying to win games when one team of bot gaa and bombers play AS A TEAM, 3 or 4 of them attacking cap zones together, while your own idiot bot gaa and bombers individually hobble about the map contributing nothing except easy kills for the enemy.

Or your bot MR simply havent a clue what to do with themselves and end up on less than 1k pp.

If one were cynical, one might suppose the requirements are so high because, really, you're supposed to buy the plane.

Really a fun-event.

Just like they've released the Yak-7 M-82 in the premium shop during Christmas "event".

Well, just grab your wallet and buy it ...

 

The Beau V just went up for sale ...  :(

Complete with exclusive (?!) paint scheme, so nothing special about the whole marathon. 



Let me translate this:
For 30 EUR you can buy the time to watch 3 movies and read 4 books - AND get an aircraft for an online-game on top.
Sounds not too bad.
But all the fun you miss when not playing!?
Well u can play anytime u want to! And if you have enough other planes, you can even save the 30 EUR.
:D

About 110 fights and a hangar plane. There is no madness, but it's always plus ONE to harvest ;-)

Tell us more! How's it vs the regular one?

 

(and what that special skin does, +5 plane XP, + speed or +20 pilot skils?)

Which I told you months ago. You went on to talk how it will not have anything to do with Iron Maiden, it will be impossible to call it like that - except I saw that's the plane name in the files, in the game code. And told you so.

 

So why are you surprised now?

Don't worry about my dream. There is a goal - there is implementation - there is an effect.

I certainly would not spend money to buy it.

110 fights probably would take you to the early hours of the following morning.  If you assume about 7½ minutes per battle on average and a minute queuing, &c., it's approximately 16 hours.  Allowing for meal breaks, toilet breaks (assuming Franti didn't resort to an intravenous protein drip and a "Man-Wee"), probably you could add a couple of hours on top.

Sure, but why do your shots say "V IM" and the Russian one only "V" ?

Is it that mod that shows the number between brackets ? (14.4)

That's stage 2 done.  The MiG-3 was an excellent weapon of choice.  I averaged over 10 kills a game.  I'm not sure what American plane to play tomorrow though.  None of those are really my favourites.  Probably I'll play the XP-77 and do much what I did today, farm the big boys with the additional advantage of earning a few credits at the same time.

There we go, aircraft no. 297 in the Q hangar.  Obviously I didn't do this as quickly as Franti, but then I like to eat, sleep and go to the toilet once in a while. :)

Can I just say that the vast majority of you that I met in battle during this marathon were sportsmanlike and gentlemen.  Thank you, chaps.
