Hi all,

 

New player here wondering if I am missing something with these daily missions and the Combat Reconnaissance missions.  Most of them seem totally impossible to achieve, especially the ground attack/kill ground targets/get x points killing ground targets etc.  For the life of me I can't seem to get anywhere near the completion requirements, even if I completely ignore the game and just do what I need for the mission - which is something I've only done once, not a fan of playing just for myself.

 

Am I missing something or just a super bad player?  The latter would not be a surprise!

Combat recon is still bugged on its third mission...which is weird, as I could get pretty far into it during test.

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

I thought I was getting the required combat XP in the third missions too, seems like it really is a bug after all.  As for the daily missions, still can't figure these guys out.

 

Cheers for the input mate.

the ground target one is hard because... in order to destroy the ground target you have to destroy all the sections. That's super hard I am finding.

 

I am going to... choose a super unarmored target tonight and see if I can take it down with guns instead of hitting high value armored targets

Ground targets are not hard, but you need a Ground Attack plane to destroy with guns.  Any other plane type is not very useful in that respect.

even with the Russian ground attack plane, I cannot destroy 5 neutral ground targets!

 

Neutral is only at the start of the game and the faster I destroy them the faster we capture the point and .. it's no longer neutral !

Its pretty easy still. GO for the light/no armour targets.

Yeah I am having the same problem as Orion03.  Actually destroying ground targets is a slow process (at least for an average player like me). impossible if the enemy fighters are paying attention.

Let us know how you go Orion03, I still have not got anywhere near it in the IL-2.  Open to the possibility that I am just crap though :D

I think I need a heavily contested point, so that I can kill the 5 ground targets without it turning blue.... that's the "plan"

What planes are you using to destroy the ground targets?

Typically if you have time you would use only guns on a soft target, however since you are trying to complete a mission and you are pressed for time, I would say use a rocket or 2 just to finish off the soft targets quicker.  Yesterday I had to grind out 100 ground targets at each of the 3 tier levels.  The missions will sometimes change the way you play, but I basically had to rush in and pick off as many as I could, averaging 12 - 15 total GT destroyed each battle.

 

I think I can put a quick video together tonight if I get any GA missions.

But do you get them while they are neutral? My plan hasn't worked yet

It depends if the mission calls for neutral targets or not.  You may have to rush from sector to sector.  Some maps are easier for this than others.
