"Price of Victory" daily mission states:

Become one of the top 5 in the combat group by the number of destroyed ground targets in the required number of battles. The battle result counts only if you win. 

 

So I have to be in the top 5 players of my 'team' for the number of ground targets destroyed, is how I understand it?  So how is this getting completed when I am playing LFs, MiG-3 and Spit V DB605 with the 3rd being a legit IL-2 mod game, and not destroying any ground targets, or even doing any damage to them?

There are times when so few planes touch targets that results in the fat zero becoming the top five number...is that even comprehensible?

WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

I think the mission counts among human players in the team. Were their any other players in your team where you played with your spitfire?

Both games I had 2 other human players on the team.

To my understanding, missions only count amongst human teammates. So...

 

If you have <5 humans attacking ground targets you can end up with your 0 damage counting as top 5 for ground damage in your team.

It's also possible that it counts bots as well and thus you had so many bots do pretty much nothing that you still got progress.


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

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

The mission is most likely bugged.... In a good way.  It may have to do with the top 5 rank system, even though you didn't touch any ground targets you may have been ranked in the top 5.  Like if the top 3 had ground targets it gives the bottom 2 slots to someone even though they have 0.

0 is among top five...therefore, everyone with 0 target kills all get to be top 5...

 

Think of missions that call for top 10 back in 1.9...but only ten players in a match...

True... they should have made it like "destroy at least 1 ground target and become top 5"

Yeah, sounds like it is just not balanced out for minimal human players. Will investigate but try to keep it as positive for you guys as possible.
