Playing tiers 1-3 on weekends if I really hated Invasion that much is a bit of a bummer, I'd almost say Albion had it a bit better with periods of time in which the event is taking place (albeit 3 hours was hardly anything and the missions would be quite difficult to do with only 8-12 hours a day being hours to do them unless you got everything PERFECT).

I barely even play tier VI anymore unless (maybe) for the daily bonus to work up a pilot or a IV just to take a stab at completing token missions; otherwise I prefer my VIIs, one or two of my VIIIs, and grinding past another IX.

After playing jets and high tier prop aircraft everything else just takes place at such a slow tempo; having to play a tier II biplane that inevitably ends up on Archipelago does not interest me, and III versus bombers is too dumb.

Capture Points & You --- Graphic Settings Explored --- Grinding Tokens; Not so Daily Missions --- Ground Targets & Mission Types in 2.0 --- Equipment 2.0.5; Huh?

I feel ya man, once you enter high tiers it becomes difficult to go back to slower aircraft however I still find myself occasionally going down to various low-mid tiers at times to help friends out with a grind or fly my F4U-1 for old times sake, usually don't go flying for missions because I despise the thought of having to club new players just so I can earn a few tokens to add onto my pile, rather I like to push myself to at least earn an epic medal every day, keeps my edge sharp and adds to my accolades.

 

Also Archipelago in low tiers, especially GA on Decisive Blow, probably the worst experience you can possibly have on it, once you move up to ~7-8 it's actually a pretty fun map.

 

 


I do fly Chinese aircraft a fair amount so... *ahem*

I even made a custom skin for my IL-10M!

LOL.. looking at the general chatter here, the EU forums, and Reddit, I'm quite confident that a majority of players don't think this new mode is a success.   If you also think a majority of the player base will complete all missions and sub-missions in order to receive the 2 tier 8 premiums...... hahahaha... yeah.    I'll just leave it there.

You need to remember that the forum posters are the vast minority of players in any game.  Even here.  So forum posts are not a good indicator to measure pleasure or displeasure by.

Well, no denying that you got em all done.. kudo's to that dedication.

 

As to am I where I want to be, I'll assume you mean in mission progress, and the answer to that is "yes".

 

Because as soon as I saw you needed all the secondaries, and took a look at the requirements... I immediately said "Screw that, I'm out" As did everyone else I know that came to that realization.

 

So, I still find your claims that "The vast majority will complete the missions" and "Anyone who doesn't get them done is lazy" to be complete weapons grade fertilizer... nothing you've done disproves that.

 

BTW: I noticed a while ago you sidestepped my question about what planes you used for the "no-death missions" and said something like "Fact: The only way to get something is to go get it."

 

Because using things like an RB-17 with a flight-mate covering your [edited] completely invalidates your claims of "Anyone can do it".

 

I can think of dozens of people that think the missions are absurd, and only you seem to be firmly up WGs butt.

Ya jealous... I can see that. You want to know what planes. GA missions were completed using tier 7, 8, 9 and 10GA, and fighter missions tier 7 Fighters.  Something wrong with that as well?

You did use a Bf 110 b for one of the missions as I recall from your stream. Sure that violates some sort of ethical behavior. 

 

Diet of poutine and beer for you.

Anyone completing GA missions is worthy of a salute. I haven't had any luck with them and just paid my way past those speed bumps.

Daaaamn... gj, Marco!

 

i will not be able to complete the missions, but my hat is off to anyone who does.

 

i'll assume that many will, because there are many good pilots out there 

 

 

please, everyone just take a deep breath?

I was farming missions in the BV 212.03. That plane is disgusting in Invasion

This is an absolute hoot. A change in the game and a whole other group for MARS to have fun with, plus he has the Community Ace moniker. Love him or hate him, he has provided extremely entertaining reading. At one point in time I wanted to wrap a golf putter around his neck, but instead, I just took a back seat and began to appreciate his set of talents.

Oh i was in one of those Bf110b games that had MARS in it....on the opposite side.  

 

I guess I was happy enough to get above 10k in that game iirc.  I still lost, but not mad about it

Can't believe I read through this thread hoping to find some insight to get past most of these horrible missions. Didn't happen; back to world of warships...

Well kudos for finding that too, perhaps more so than the missions. I don't think WG even knows where it is anymore.

Like Rumple, I also came looking for some insight. I was hopeful the the WoWP forums wouldn't be full of the same elitism and snobbery as Wot forums. I remember reading something in here the the WoWP community prides itself for not being "that".

My mistake, I should have known better.
