Just took my JU88A out, had 4 good hits and decided to drop my last set of bombs to get a reload going. Yeah...bad idea. No reload went off. REALLY getting sick of that. Especially in a slow JU88A. Least in a RB17 or A26B I can play interceptor. Ju88...not so much.

This isn't dueling pistols at dawn. This is war. You sneak up behind your enemy and you bash him over the skull. I know this, so does Scar. That's why I'm gonna kill him.

It's only happened once to me in 140 bomber battles.  But I only have 9 in the JU88A.  Does this mainly happen with this bomber?

I have yet to have this happen to me.  Can you identify any consistent thing that happens that started the bug?  Or is it just Random?

Balance, comrade.:ohmy: :sceptic:. Bombers really need their bombs, but WG isn't willing to fix the problem that can unfairly and randomly take away Bombers' bombs, so:

Remember, remember the 14th of... June, the day of patch 2.05.  Some say it's great end-game content, some say it's horrible, but history will always recall which it actually was.

I had it happen once in my Do17z. Pissed me off it did

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

totally random. Had it happen once in my Do 17z, twice on my A26 and second match in my RB17 it happened. And it's also happened once on my Blenheim IV.

 

Don't know why. Might be my side, and it doesn't happen all the time, it's just frustrating when it does.

The mother of all selection bias.  

 

FWIW  I have had this happen from time to time.  I share the frustration.  Confident it is not a problem on the client side, it's a bug.

I have submitted 3 tickets so far.  Sent in screenshots, replays, data dumps, etc.  It seemed we were getting somewhere on the last ticket when it switched to troubleshooting to enable me to connect to the game.  Most humorous is the consistent first reply: I have to fly above a certain altitude to release my bombs.  Then, I have to reply explaining the bombs do not resoawn - there is no problem with dropping them.  I even sent links to all of the threads on this.  The issue has happened to me in my Blenheim, Ju 88, and A-26B.  In the A-26B, it is not as disastrous because it has a nose full of .50s.  Really throws people off when I have to start dogfighting.  The good thing is that it happens very rarely.

This was happening back in December, surprised this hasn't been fixed 2 months down the road already.  I've sent tickets, even made a Bug Report thread for it.

Did you drop all of them then die?  Does respawningnhave anything to do with it?  Were you high or low?  Anything you can think of might help identify this.  Not just you but anyone.....

last time it happened it was my JU88A. Never died. Was around 7000 feet. Just dropped bombs and the reload never started. One time with my A26B, was at 500 feet, dropped the last load, lived, didn't reload. Even crashed to see if that would force a reload. Nothing happened. Stuck without bombs.

 

Just a random glitch.

The only bomber I have *NOT* had this bug occur on is the tier III Blenheim.

 

This should have been hotfixed the same week it was reported.  That WG HQ hasn't even publicly acknowledged the issue is indicative of how seriously they are taking this.
