I know that at least two low-tier maps have a few layouts with a Mining Facility, but I'm not sure at what tiers each layout can appear. However, I'd suggest going for tier 4, as it sees a larger number of maps. If you're running a GAA, tier 4 GAAs also move noticeably faster and have better weaponry for taking on Mining Facilities

It's because there are so few maps in low tier, that you won't be seeing plants much. T2 and T3 still lack the firepower to knock down plants reliably probably...

 

It's almost routine in high tier, though.



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

T3 is the lowest - I think there's one of the new night maps that has a mining plant and I've flown on that in my Wirraway.

618 battles... 200+ in T5      you've got other planes that will see Mines long before you'll find one in T2 and T3

It's possible to see them in a T3 plane, however highly unlikely, I can only think of one map layout that features mining plants that tier 3's can get dragged into.

 

Get to tier 4 ASAP if you want better chances at finding mining plants, and make sure you're packing ordinance (bring a multi-role, heavy, GA, or bomber that carries bombs/rockets) since it's only heavily armored ground targets over there, guns barely even scratch them.

Ah, good point, due to Attrition you cannot see mining plants, and tier 3's can only get dragged up into tier 4 matches to see mining plants.

 

Thankfully this is the last weekend of this event run so normal service should return in a day or two.

Would t5s differ in the map match making and also what is the chance that a t3 would see a mining plant (1-10)

T5+ have even more maps with mining plants open to them.

 

The chances for T3 planes to see mining plants? Probably, hmm... once every 8 or so games on an average day, likely once every 4-5 games if there's a lot of tier 4's flying around. However right now with Attrition running there is 0% chance to see a mining plant unless there's a map layout I forgot about, I'll look into what map layouts you can get at anything below tier 5.

 

Edit: Looking in a training room for what map layouts are available, there are potentially three map layouts that feature mining plants at low-tiers:

Scorched Sands - Leading Edge (tier 4-6 map)

Peripheral Mission - Silence of Ice (though this is also a tier 4-6 map)

Arctic Region - Bitter Expanse (tier 1-3 map)

 

Still highly unlikely to see mining plants at low-tiers but there is a small chance you can find them as low as tier 1 even.

Nah worries, and for tier 1 maps? There are three maps: Sea Gate, Old Fortress, and Arctic Region.

 

Arctic Region has 5 layouts while Old Fortress and Sea Gate both feature 3 layouts each.

 

Old Fortress and Sea Gate only have layouts with garrisons and airstrips in various configurations.

 

Arctic Region features map layouts with more advanced capture points (i.e. Command Centers, Missile Bases, and Mining Plants.) No layouts with airbases though so you'll need to get dragged into tier 4 matches to see those.

another thing, I am doing my combat reconisance missions for the 1k gold but i am stuck on the 8 mission i think, where you have to capture a military base, i have done this in my t4 plane in the attrition gamemode and won but the missions says i didn't so do i have to play a different tier of type of plane or what?

It could be that the Combat Reconnaissance missions don't count Attrition, much like how the daily missions don't either :bajan:

I keep thinking I need to re-buy my BSh-1 for the GAA missions in T4.  That plane is a beast, when kitted out correctly.
