In WW2 history, June 1944 is remembered as the month of D-Day, when Allied forces landed on the beaches in Normandy in what was called Operation Neptune, part of the larger Operation Overlord to take back Normandy, France. To carry out Operation Neptune, Allied forces would first have to cripple the Luftwaffe in an operation beginning a year earlier in June 1943, Operation Pointblank: a combined bomber offensive between the USAAF and the RAF targeting German aircraft factories, oil facilities, airfields, and any other strategic ground target that contributed to German air strength.

 

For the Operation Pointblank contest, players will take on the roles as USAAF and RAF 'bombers' and take down enemy ground targets, and planes while in a flight! 

 

RULES

 

  • Pilots must be flying any US or UK Heavy Fighter while in a flight.
  • Receive a Superior Wing medal in battle. 
  • Take a screenshot of the Personal tab in your Battle Report and post it in this thread
  • Deadline for screenshots is at 12:00 PST Friday, June 17th!
  • One screenshot/post per flight.

 

We will randomly draw 4 Flight groups (Gold for both) to win 1,000 gold!

So many complaints about double heavy flights and now we have a contest to promote the idea.

That should make the whiners STFU but it wont stop them from making the threads.

Can't wait till next week when I get to flight up again.

Really,  no minimum tier? 

You guys want the clubbers to fly,  right? 

 

This could be a challenge,  with the bots battles won't last long,  unless there are only humans at the end and someone makes a let's all farm call. 

OH well,  it might be easy after all,  it doesn't say you have to win the battle.

Ghostprime double heavy flights are one of the

main complaints players have about the game,

they are very easy way to win go high we're no

other plane can reach swoop done and shoot,

and repeat or make all the bots stall and win 

A cheap victory by taking advantage of the bot stalling bug which

should have been fixed.  Some players only do

double heavy flights because they only care 

about winning and not having a competitive match.

they often clog up a tier and make people quit 

because they often can only be counted by another 

double heavy flight.  I'm sure you have noticed all

the forum threads about the issue.  I would have 

hoped it would be something to pass on to WG,

not something to be promoted

I feel like they missed something in the rules - like some way to identify the wingman.

It's easy (I think they did that before), only the pilot posting gets the price.
