just had 31( I know, hilarious round) kills with a fighter. No paladin. Is it one of the medals you onlu can get one of in a day? Then its pretty weird, regarding it is a two day mission...

I hope the new battle mode will remain in game. It is far more interesting than standard battles of bubble bases.

^ The mode has been in the game for years.  It's just that it takes development work to "switch" it on and off.  The development team having been, quote Victor Kislyi, "streamlined and optimised", unquote Victor Kislyi, hasn't attempted anything like this for more than a year.  Perhaps if it's popular they'll do it more often.  Meanwhile, you have a couple of different modes coming up that probably you'll find interesting as well.

Just a reminder about Flying Paladin achievement: aircraft type-specific missions (as well as achievements accordingly) are different in the Escort Mode.

I've purchased 50 Certificates and skipped the non-functioning Paladin. Too much fun to be had in this Bomber Escort, all the missions are doable in one single battle :teethhappy:

So can't we do that mission in this game mode?

Correct, you can activate your operation order and then be stuck with an impossible mission leg whilst the Crimson Dawn event is taking place.

Why set a mission in the ops order that cant be done for 24 hours or so out of the initial 48 hour time limit?

 

other than the obvious money grab.

Once I skipped Paladin, the glorious Bomber Escort provided almost all steps were done in a single battle each.

Something weird happen today, in last few hours bugs happen, like "jumping" of strategic bombers or their immunity (series of direct hits don't do damage).

Its happen at wowp sometimes - when there are many of players mainly. The server and client are out of synchronization.

Rather not gonna happen

Such mode is token printer - token for 15k PP is easy (maybe except those players who end up escort battle below 10k, but for them probably everything in WoWP is hard), another for Ace. If you pay attention - another for 5 chevrons. Doolittle, Thunder for bombers. If you win, Lang probably - if you are lucky and skilled, 5 or 6 tokens in a single 15 minutes battle.

Pprobably few others, just a matter of developing strategy of achieving epics in such environment for each class. Plus tons of exp in daily doubles (because of tons of PP scored in longer than ordinary random battle).

Nope.

 

At the same time weekly missions are turned off, which may be kind of frustrating (and probably evens tokens influx).

It's a pity something like the arrangement in WoT where you can select various battle types to be available and you're placed in them randomly isn't implemented in WoWP.  It would be quite nice to have a conquest game, then a bomber escort game, an invasion game and so on for variety.

Death to any heavies, even unspecialised Japanese ones, that try to dogfight this:

 

 

To be fair, I have a good pilot and the equipment is all ultimate, though not calibrated.  You'd have to fly away from a specialised Japanese heavy rather than turn fight; any other heavy engaging in a turn fight with you will lose if you have what I have on the plane.  The guns are serviceable and fire for a long time given they're 23mm cannons (2 off).  All in all, not a bad tier 5; but unless it's cheap, I don't think I'd recommend buying it.  As a reward plane, it's fine and dandy.

I am afraid I just wasted some time trying to get this bloody Paladin during the Escort Mode / event. I find it inconvenient that the missions are different. Just had 29 kills in light fighter and still did not get it. Now it turns out that you CAN NOT get it even if you do a super result BY DESIGN. Thank you for the info Blindfold but it is not logical. Why do I have to pay tokens to prolong the time of the orders when you effectively do not allow me to finish it on time? Two tokens are not a big deal, but it unnecessarily complicates our lives :facepalm:.

I'm not even at Paladin yet - stuck on the the task before (#4) - destroy 30+ armoured sections.  I suspect it might be easier in the event battles but the best I've managed so far between a tier 10 bomber, two tier 7s, and two tier 10 GAAs is 6 medium and small armoured targets destroyed, which will be just 13 armoured sections - no record of how many sections themselves from non-destroyed targets.

Managed Paladin a few times in the event battles, have done it before in normal modes but not that often.

Didn't thought i'd have the patience to attempt it, but it went down smooth enough. I did use 5 tokens to reactivate the order due to that paladin badge, also quit a few battle at starts , because of the guardian battle being attacker. The last mission i completed this morning, as a first battle first succes, being lucky to get the best conditions possible, Blennheim in a 4v4 human battle with tier III and two airbases available for repairs, and played carefully not going head in around lot of enemies, just picked isolated targets or undefended sectors.

I also got the tier 7 french VB and some russian tier 5 180-3, but like i said before, the contents are way too poor to be worth 750 gold ( didnt bought any, all i opened were won ). Ill probably open more for that Lockheed, even though i know i will waste some thousands gold that i would get if i keep them for conversion.
