Try sending your pilots or gunners to the aircraft they are trained for, they might have 2 already assigned points and 1 free skill point. If they don't have these skills please contact Customer Support. 

 

Also, since today's server restart pilots should drop with free skillpoints. 


I raised a ticket and the problem was quickly fixed (now I need to buy some more German planes to put these (relatively) skilled pilots in!)

What did they need for proof ??

I don't have screenshots of opening the crates ... just 2 pilots in the barracks with only 1 point.

Screenshots are welcome but it will be OK if you name only aproximate time of opening the crate.

Hmm, I believe I got 2 pilots from crates as well, it showed they were 3 pointers - but had only 1 point when in barracks. It might have been a wide-spread bug indeed. Not that it matters much for me personally, 1 or 3 points for a new pilot is just a couple thousand FXP anyway (which I get from normal or 'speshul' crates in much too high amount). Just signalling the issue with the declared and true values of skill points.

You have reached your quota of positive votes for the day

I gave minimal details (I could only remember one example) and had no proof but they seemed to manage to work it out

I must have an honest face!

The event is a bit of fresh air in the game, bomber escort is kinda fun. Another good think is the condition for the first mission it is sooo much better now. But the crates are just a bad joke (or I am too unlucky) - from about 20 opened so far only 100 gold in total, several prem days and 5-10k free xp. Yeah, and the operation order + a pilot with 1 skill, thanks a lot. No special equipment, no prem planes. I won't put so much effort from now on for sure, as only the first reward (100 gold) is valuable, the crates r mostly trash and a waste of time.

Three new types of experimental equipment:

  • Experimental Turret Armor Protection (Period I, II, III)
  • Experimental Polished Skin (Period I, II, III)
  • Experimental Bolt Carriers (Period II, III)

Thanks. That's a bit disappointing tbh. It's more the likes of a gun sight optics, gas ops, light weight wing, uprated engine, boost injection, lightweight power unit, long barrels, strengthened hardpoints, pylons, turbine, turret gunsight... so ya basically almost anything else apart from those 3 lol!

 

Not sure what airplanes I have that would benefit much from any of those really, they look more like something a GA might use with the exception of perhaps the polished skin which I'm not a big fan of anyway since it negatively impacts on maneuverability.

You can hold on the boxes , they will be converted into the regular unique crates after event is over.

2nd mission: Players have to earn X-thousend capture point.
So, when you'r in the defender team, and kill the enemy, who try to collect capture point, you fight against the main mission, you fight against yourself. Idiotism!

Points made in defense are called the same, because there is nobody left there to bother finiding a different term.

Yep, this seems much smarter.

I wanted some prem plane or special equipment, but...

The best I can say about Stage ll is that thankfully this shhhh is over tomorrow. What a total flop after the enjoyment of Stage 1 bomber escort.

Or that multiroles need to kill bombers for 2nd mission? 

 

Yeah and kill AA ... problem is I only get put on Defense. Can I kill my own AA ??

The worst part is that we mentioned all this when they introduced it and they did NOTHING with it  :(

This mode is broken if you play with bombers (however i only tried tier 8+) Doesnt matter the altitude (extreme low or high) it seems every HF programmed to terminate bombers, avoiding everything else. Even if they are attacked/backstabbed by some1, they just ignore the fight and focus only the programmed target (bomber). You managed to defend yourself by killing one, but 2 more in your tail immediately :facepalm: pretty funny Wargaming pretty funny. Well programmed bots!

After 3 tries i gave up on them, switched to the defensive side, and waaaaay more fun there! :great:

 

edit: in those 3 battles we did not have any human controlled fighter of course, so maybe MAYBE it is not that broken if you have at least ONE human fighter on your side

Yes, this mode Invasion is unbalanced - the bots focused you if you are at bomber or attack aircraft (and no only one or two but all bots around) but if you are at heavy you are almost free from enemy bots attacks. So playing the bomber or AA is pain and playing HF is tea at five.

 

Edit: I found that the B-32 (and maybe others American bombers too) is playable if you have good crew and equipment. I have positive wr with it at this mode today - but with help of good human players on fighters at my side.

There r 4 instead of 2 HF, so playing with a bomber is kinda painfull, indeed. 2nd missions for GAA and multys are way too time consuming, and as the crates r 95% of the time crap, I will skip fighters and heavies also.
