There's a problem with the Command Center bomber flight on the Albion map in Attrition: several times today, while playing on this map, when the Northern spawn player captures the Command Center, it will not spawn any bomber flights. Only when the opposing team captures it, will it begin spawning in bombers. I overcame it in these two replays, but there was a third where it would have helped avoid defeat.

That map layout has been bugged since it came out I think. There's actually quite a few layouts on Albion that make bombers bug out, like the one with two Mining Facilities on one side and two Command Centers on the other; CCs tend to send a bombing run to a neutral Mining Facility, but the bombers never drop their bombs and just get stuck there until the CC is flipped around


This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

You all are so observant.  Probably why I suck so bad.  I just got out and keel and don't pay attention to these details.  Probably my ADHD brain.  Some people are so good at spotting patterns but I just kinda go with the flow.  

 

No sarcasm, just basic reality for me.

They do actually drop bombs, which is super frustrating because it'll knock out facilities that are neutral and you can't flip it for your team, and the other team can't flip it because it keeps getting reset. When that happens I usually just leave that plant alone since nobody will capture it and focus on the other one that's being untouched and is closer to the spawn. 

I'm not overly fond of this map in general, and bugs like this just make it even less pleasant.

I've noticed the double CC double Plant bug although I could've sworn the flight could capture the Plant for you, not leave it stuck on neutral.

 

This one I hadn't noticed before and I could've sworn it used to work: capping the CC was always my tactic on this map.

I can't remember the exact name of the map that was on albion where I experienced the CC not working. But I was playing Albion: Gordian Knot just a few hours ago and that map's CC worked. I thought it didn't due to the recent complaints about albion but that one map seems to be fine. Maybe it's on and off idk... :unsure:

People say it only works for the South team. I can confirm it won't work if the top team gets it first, though idk if it starts to work if the south team gets it instead and then the northern team flips it around.

As long as South takes it first, it will work as normal.

This issue was fixed at one point. There may have been some issues with one of the Updates reversing that situation and we are looking into correcting it again.

I'm willing to bet it has something to do with Attrition mode...

 

I'll wager that the template you used was the old bugged version of the map, not the "fixed" version that was supposed to be released a while back.

Good to know. I think the others have a point about using the older version of the map for Attrition

Theoretically this has now been corrected. I have not seen any issue, but please let me know if you have any issues moving forward.
