I would like to see the Rocketeer Medal changed to receiving after each plane kill with a rocket rather than once per match.

 

Sure it is not really that important but when making video's it shows up much better as confirmation.

 

Before you all tell me to STF up and you will get a Zvonarev after 3 rocket kills in a match I WANT 1 FOR EACH KILL...lol.

 

Been trying for that elusive Zvonarev but man these bots are brutal.

 

Seriously. I think it would benefit all that participate in ROCKETRY  and video making.

Just slow motion the vid and zoom in on the impact while recording.

Works better with bombs and free camera,some wild graphics going on you cant see.

Yeah I know to do that. Would be nice to have the medal pop up.

I can also make the medal pop up manually in the video.

I have a big spread between rocketeers and rocket kills.

Still have not got 3 but I have an Il-20 now and things are looking up.

Rocketeer used to have 3 ranks before it became the plain Rocketeer and the epic medal...

 

Not sure why the intermediate was removed...



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

A triple rocket kill is worthy of something,maybe a gold bonus.

Anyone got one?

I have one Zvonarev I think it is in the Yak-7 back before they did away with the rockets...I will check and confirm it after te game finishes updating.

Correction: it was in the Yak-1 before they did away with the rockets on it.

I have one zvonarev. Mine was with the I-16L. I've had a lot of close one's but due to the nerf of the rockets I can't seem to get that 3rd kill.

I'm still a noob on this game, but I'm really liking about the possibility of using rockets. My first Rocketeer medal is shown on this video (the question is: when I'll get my Zvonarev's? ;) )

I know it. That's why I've written "Rocketeer" medal, not Zvonarev. But what I've said is... "I want to get my Zvonarev's medal someday".

 its called recognition    if you do something you want something in return for some the lack of in game unit / clan wars. and the seeming long time to the  addition of new AC this is all they have for fun --- long term fun in the game the battle can be over and unless you saved the replay thats all you got after, but awards last ,

 

even in real life the Military have minor awards certificate of this or that and letters of commendation  , and the like 

  we do have the rocketeer countdown in game  and the Zvonarev medal  for those  that can get it but they are few and far between 

 

But to be realistic in Battle you most times only get one award for one battle ,but as we all know this game often time wonders way far away from real.

Yeah had one a while back...(think maybe ver.1.3)

 

I have the reply but I don't have the version that will play it and I think my only witness still playing is BubbaZ if he even remembers (or cares, lol)

 

Would be nice to watch it again if someone has a ver 1.3 sitting around somewhere (hint hint)

 

 

 

btw: Lost is just scrapping for any way to catch up to me and this futile attempt will only make it worse for him

Actually NO, have you tried your rockets lately ?

Notice how they just bounce off what they hit.

I added your warheads to mine to make it easier for me to catch up.

and soon they will be calling you TrainingRound.

 

MUHAHAHA

Sorry TT.  Surely there must be a version repository out in WG land?  Hmmm...

Took away some good info from Zvonarev medal video above. I tend to use rockets at long range, usually head on, where they explode whether hitting target or not, and hoping for blast damage. I noticed all 3 of his kills were at close range, basically point blank where you can hardly miss.  In earlier game versions a rocket hit was an automatic kill, no matter the HP of the target.  Since they changed that, its more realistic and more challenging.  Now you have to soften up larger targets with guns before delivering the coup-de grace with the rocket.  I've currently got 142 Rocketeer medals, and only once got 2 in 1 battle. Considered Zvonarev to be unachievable, but now I have hope.  Thanks.
