There are achievements associated with playing on the Allies side...I'd assume there are similar ones for Axis as well...

 

...but it took me almost full two hours to get 3 boxes (at least 15 games with 11 Thunders). The competition is pretty high with everyone playing GA on Allies.



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...

Allies win again tonight, by ~116,359.

 

Another consequence of this imbalance is that the event ends earlier -- meaning less time for both sides to gather individual points that lead to crates.

This is problematic, I'd say.

we all need to be rewarded with 50 free crate openings.

There really is not much incentive to play axis.

For me the interest stopped at the A6M5 and the Me-262a.

Past that, I don't even bother.

I have a tier 7 German GA, but like the Bf-410 it's a placeholder.

Something to fly when I'm not flying an IL-10.

 

I see they are introducing new Japanese planes, but only 3 or 4 of them hold any interest for me.

And to a plane, all of them are low to middle tier.

DICTA BOELCKE for WoWP
    1. Try to secure the upper hand before attacking.
    2. Always continue with an attack you have begun
    3. Open fire only at close range, and then only when the opponent is squarely in your sights
    4. You should always try to keep your eye on your opponent, and never let yourself be deceived by ruses
    5. In any type of attack, it is essential to assail your opponent from behind
    6. If your opponent dives on you, do not try run away from his attack, but fly to meet it
    7. When over the enemy's lines, always remember your own line of retreat
    8. It is better to attack in groups of four or six. Avoid two aircraft attacking the same opponent

I came back to grind exp to convert for tanks, and picked axis because I had x2 exp birthday missions in some german tier 10s. Then I found out bday missions didn't count in the event mode......

We were in that one game when we stomped the Allies hard. I had a kill and like 143 points, three other people had kills and +100 pts in GA, then there were the Axis fighters...

 

I bet Allies lost that one battle worse than any other last night. Our whole team lost like 1 bot. :D

Dity and I flew 8 battles last night during the event. Every battle was a win like that. Game is too easy.

You know, I upped my Furious streak to 15 and Ground Pounder to 1.1k from yesterday alone...

 

Not only it's easy, there are lots of players that carry.

It's the NA server and we already know Allies will win every battle. I predicted that before the event started, and no one listened to me.

 

I flew doing count-ins with a certain clan I will not name last night. I flew the JL-1A-37, P-40, P-51K, and a few other awesome American planes. The clan I flew with (except for me and one other person), flew ONLY GA. They killed the enemy GA, smashed GTs and complained that I killed the bots too fast for them to get thunders, and complained that I didn't let them get any tailgunner kills. I was not happy with this un-named clan.

 

I got between 3-6 kills every game, top damage and XP 90% of the time. I ended with a 98% win rate, losing one game in two days.

 

Overall, personal success, as I have pulled some good stuff out of the crates.

 

Overall, event failure, with the amount of GAs I had to look at and hear in TS. Also failure due to WG's inability to critically think their way through an event, predict outcomes, and properly code it. The way I imagine WG offices, the bathrooms don't stock soap, because no one uses it after going potty.

 

I think I'm done with the event after last night. Killing 10 bots a game for two hours is insanely boring. On second thought, maybe I'll fly the J7W1 with Dity or Gang and wipe the grins off the hordes of human GA players....

J8M + J7W1 should be hella combi breh. I'll try to keep my shirt on while we video Skype each other and slay GA and drink Red Bulls and rub avocados on our chests in desperate little circles.
