killing enemy planes will net you far higher xp rewards. Not saying it doesn't need to be fixed.

Yeah, I get that, but 13 GT kills is not something to just snub your nose at. 600 xp in a normal plane is.

Yep, been said multiple places, the xp for ground targets needs a big buff.

I'm OK with it being a little less than air targets - but right now it's waaaaay to little xp for the ground pounders...

Easily. I mean, I feel like damage to Air targets should be 2.5x more xp then damage to GT's, that seems like a good ratio, when you compare how much you should be doing in battle.

I think what needs to be done is to leave the XP as is, but give a bonus multiplier to GA. I don't want to see fighters farm GTs more than they already do.

I agree with the OP. I also posted on this earlier today.

See Here


Basically, I ram one plane in my fighter for 525 XP. I dodge, dip, duck, dive, and... dodge to kill one plane and eleven ground targets in my attack aircraft, and that gets me 666 XP.

As Bearick mentions in my thread, it almost seems like attack aircraft just get less experience rewards on everything, not just ground targets.

That, and you pay a kazillion dollars to refill the bomb load that it took to do that!

This is a much better idea. Fighters should only be on ground attack if necessary to win. They should not be getting much reward or the bad pilots will all migrate to attacking ground targets only for the easy xp.

Please search, already a thread(s) on this.

That being said, yes indeed, GT needs a boost to XP.

That is a good tweak.

Of course (not counting if they drop bombs)  FA and CA generally have a hard time killing GT's (with guns).
