Why do you think its full of quitters at start of every battle? Because people play for rewards not for the horrible event. A thing devs of every game will never learn. People will not waste time finishing battle when they cant/fail their objectives.
 

 

Ya after the first time I spawned on the attacking team for the second set of HF mission and realized there was zero chance of making any inroads into that set of mission parameters I just left and did so for the other few occasions I spawned on the attacking team during that mission but I was lucky tbh and generally spawned on the defending team. This event has a time limit, and so do I. With the time available for me to play this game I'm not pandering to stupidity which was what that mission is and I make no apology for it either. There's no way I'm rinse and repeating some 15+ minute waste of my time over and over again. 

 

I'll get mentally drained from playing very repetitious missions at some point obviously so before that happens I'll look to make inroads into this event and get what I can out of it, as should all players. Now you might say "Well I can't when some **** on my team keeps leaving at the start of the battle!" but I would strongly disagree with that since the one good thing about this event is that there is no requirement in winning and so it doesn't matter a damn what happens in the battle so long as a player focuses on their mission parameters. When I was playing a bomber or a GA, it didn't matter if 2 or 3 HFs shagged off at the start in fact I didn't even check or care. I had a set of mission requirements and I still did those so it didn't bother me at all. Same when I played fighters and MR's, I could still kill the required classes and still have a go at getting 2nd grade etc. So no, I make no apologies about leaving and see it as the logical thing to do.

From 13 or 14 crates, of which one was purchased, I've had the ops order, 4 hanger slots (a set of 3 on one drop and 1 on another), and nothing else but fxp, materials and equipment. Seriously, do not waste gold on them unless you are desperate for random junk.

So when do we get those "double" crates now that the global mission was completed?

It is possible to get good rewards from the crates. I've opened 9 crates total and I got some resources but also this:

I'm not even sure how you get beyond the first crate.  I've received just that one.  I'm assuming you can only get certificates from there so unless IK get really lucky and spend lots of tokens the F5F will only be a pipe dream for me - until is suddenly appears in the premium shop in 4 months time for £50

I've received the order for f5f in the first crate I had opened. I got next 4 crates after completing all bomber missions and all fighter missions in the first phase. I did the same in the second phase, so 9 crates total. As of 30 minutes past the event I haven't received any extra crates. This event is a lot of grinding and you need good planes to make it quicker. For the bomber missions I used the german Ju 287 or EF131 and for fighter missions tier 9 Me P.1092  and 10 Me P.1101 german planes.

I prefer light fighters and my squad mate takes a heavy fighter. He attacks the bombers and GAAs, and I keep his back safe.

 

So, the real advice is, team up with someone and do some task sharing.

I agree, unfortunately I'm not often in a flight. So I got my best results with the BF109 E and the Me 109 TL. Both with the same 15 Skill points pilot. The 109 TL is able to shoot down two bombers in a single attack and the BF109 is a good all rounder. A second question: I sometimes got the impression that there is a big cloud of reds and many blues go there to shoot them down. But there are no bombers. So I think it is better to let the reds fly and wait for the blue bombers to escort them. Even if the AAs got no chance then. Am I right?

As usual - it depends.

 

I've had few battles ended because of frag depletion, shooting down enemy planes for sake of shooting down enemy planes seems to be a viable approach.

Also - fortunately there are no winning requirements, and many pure grinding missions, so at some point lose at the last wave was more profitable in terms of various missions done than winning in 1st wave (like I saved 45 or so tokens, as on my other account I've had 5 times Doolittle mission for Vampire - 2 hours and mission done).

 

And wasting free weekend time - 109E is indeed a killer, and bombers were only targets of opportunity.

 

Next modes will be less entertaining, and even more fragile.

And I forgot, and I think it deserves separate post: it's kind of annoying to change hangar setup each time, somebody decides to change it.

Event activity starts, hangar switched to event setup - changing back to boring mode. Event avtivity ends - again changing back to boring mode.

Exactly as with premium time falling off from crates - is it so hard to turn that "climatic" hangar changes off?

Agreed. It would be nice if this game took a leaf out of the WoWS book whereby we the players have a selection of hangers(ports in WoWP obviously), airports, airbases, airfields etc and we just pick which one's we want. 

 

I seriously doubt the "fancy" hanger that comes with premium time(some annoying dork drifting his motorbike sideways between aircraft and equipment, very realistic obviously)) is the crux by which a player purchases premium time.

 

In any case, if the Devs go to the trouble of actually creating these different alternative surroundings for our aircraft "hanger", then why not just keep them as a selectable option for us players to choose? It's not like it's any trouble just to simply keep them. We've already downloaded them and it's not like the Devs have to go and create them again obviously. The current airfield is really nice actually, it seems to make our aircraft look really HD and sharper... not sure why that should be any less with the default hanger but they don't look as crisp and detailed...

So far I have been told that I got a +3 rear gunner TWICE

 

and twice I have checked and it's only a +1 gunner.

 

The rest has been scrap

 

Same here. Only 1-Skill-Point gunners and pilots. And this from 3 crates! Support contacted.

Nice, one of the crates from last week had a VB 10 !! Always wanted to have that plane, but too expensive ...

 

by the way ; I could have sworn that one of the crates have a 3 point Hs 129A pilot, but in the barracks it turns out to be only 1 point ?! 

And I lso got a 1 point Yak-7 pilot that should have been 3 points !!

 

^^^^

AHA ; I'm not the only one !!!

Well, waddya know!  I also 'won' a 3-point 129A and a 3-point Ju86E driver.  As I won't ever be using them I hadn't bothered to check, but sure enough I see in the barracks that the new arrivals have just one measly point each.  I'm grateful that other players are much more observant than I am - cheers, fellas.

the only good prizes I got was some gold, around 500. In rest I believe I would have liked to have the "unlucky" of our colleague that got only planes. :)

Well, it is selectable, but each time there is a chance to change, it is being changed.

Like - I get premium time from crate - bang, I get dork airfield that I can switch afterwards.

Event phase starts - bang - I get event decorated scenery that I can switch afterwards.

Event phase ends, but not event - I get other event decorated scenery.

I don't wish to be made happy in such way. I prefer scenery that I picked long time ago.

 

Well, it would be much better to have simple hangar, like WoT minimalistc hangar: https://tanksmod.com...f-tanks-0-9-14/ , but it appears to be out of reach for developers.

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.
