Hi,

 

maybe someone can explain me the Part9: Kill 5 enemy planes while attacking sectors.

 

does the air defence planes count or only other players?

5 planes in one sector, or in total?

needs the sector to be won?

Can these part only be done in time from red dawn or also between the days (like today)

Sorry for my bad english. iam german :)

 

I really played a lot yesterday and today. And it fet like the mission shoud be done several times.But it didn't work.

They need to be planes from the enemy team, not ADA. It doesnt matter if they are different sectors, but note that the kills must be done when the sector is active in their possesion, not during repair cooldown ( when sectors change owner , there is like 20 seconds cooldown in which the buildings are repaired , during which kills doesnt count toward mission ). Also both you and the target need to be inside the base circle on the minimap. I did it during event by escorting bombers and picking out the attackers, but any mode works. Also for all i know, neutral sectors at start counts too, but may be wrong.

Hope it helps.

Just got my F5F, and I must say, it's pretty good. 

Deaccent all round, and the guns, although nothing too special damage wise for a HF, take rather a long time to overheat. (although that may just be me, as I'm more used to the British 20mm)

In my books, worth the effort, despite it looking like it's been hit on the nose Tom and Jerry style.

 

P.s. First time I've completed an operation order! (ex XP-55 and Vampire) Finally feeling like an above average player.:medal:

You can receive this order from supply crates available in the Supply Service for 750. You can also receive it as a reward for completing the personal combat missions within the Crimson Dawn event.

The armament of this plane is a joke, compared to other tier 5 heavies, damage output is ridiculous, and it feels those 23mm-s are programmed to miss a lot...

It was a gift so thanks anyways, but still, those 23mm-s...super cr*p

 

PS: Just think about the tier 6 IL-1's 23mm, that gun is BADASS!

Hello,

My mission was gone, and I was already on the penultimate mission. What is?


"Missions within the operation order can be executed until December 20, 2020 (15:00 CEST, UTC+1)."

https://worldofwarpl.../f5f-skyrocket/

 



Second, you can buy certificates in the premium shop. But no missions on the F5F anymore .... Where is dream and logic here.

I activated the order on 17/12 at 5 p.m. (it was valid until 12/19 5 pm), and you want to tell me that by not extending it immediately for tokens for another 2 days, today I was not able to extend it until 20/12 as you can do missions. This is a mockery.

Operation Order could be extended for 48 hours. If it's less then 48 hours left till the end of the event (December 20, 2020 (15:00 CEST, UTC+1) prolongation is not available. It was additionally mentioned that you can activate your operation order until December 18, 2020 (15:00 CEST, UTC+1), after that time activation is not available, the same rule goes for extension.

Hello all! I have an issue on this event: my remaining certificates was not converted in gold, i've had over 25 certificates unused that vanished from the depot and no gold for them. What seems to be the problem?

Indeed. It flies really nice, no complaints there but this game is not an airshow, it's a combat game and 155 base or whatever it is, on a heavy, regardless of agility, is not really something I have warmed too at all. It just takes too long to take out targets that are typically part of a HF's diet such as bombers and GAA's.

 

Being one of the most agile HF's it can be a bit of a thorn in the sides of other HF's and some of the less agile MR's, perhaps that is it's intended target choice and role by the devs BUT, I'm not all that interested in that sort of playstyle and when I play a HF I like that big DPS out the front to put ANY aircraft to sleep with just a quick rinse.... that's never going to happen with this F5F. Even with a fully upgraded Ultimate GasOP featuring +17.7% RoF, it's only spitting out 186 dps. Also, because it takes unacceptably long to kill targets it just opens the door for some nasty side-effects such as, losing too much hp sitting unnecessarily long behind some big meaty bombers featuring hard hitting turrets, overshooting GAA's even with full brakes and flaps because again, it just isn't washing away the HP fast enough which in turn requires you to cut back and have to shoot at it again, though now with the element of surprise(if any) gone so he might evade and just drag the balls out of it for way too long. Both of the mentioned also translates into sectors either not being won as soon as they could be or even lost because that bomber or GAA survived long enough to slap that crucial turning point ground target before you kill it or just because his teammates had time to kill you instead... so it's lost time, lost progress, negative scores against your team as that flipped sector is now generating scores for the enemy and not your team... what else... o yes, it stands to reason that sitting behind targets painfully longer than you typically would do with a typical high dps HF, besides the above mentioned, you will also basically be a sitting target for as long as you are there. With a fast killing high dps HF, the target is dead and gone and you move onto the next target but with a low dps, every extra second spent shooting at a target is time you are vulnerable to an enemy player noticing you and making you his target.

 

Overall, I would not like this HF very much. It ain't bad, regardless of what I said, but it just isn't for me or what I would like in a both a HF or playstyle. I've had great battles with it, but just no.
