If I wanted to play 3 minute battles with no respawns I would play World of Tanks. This new game mode kills everything I enjoy about this game. My $0.02

It’s not a new game mode.  It’s a special event mode they have used before.

He may be referring to his new experience with the overall 2.0 modes Conquest, Invasion & Attrition. Which all 3 are being used in this event. Which one he is referring to is unclear. Also all 3 modes have respawns so... not sure where the no respawn thing came from. Although only Invasion has a limited respawns and highly depends on your team not wasting them.

I still think my point stands, Invasion is not a new mode, it was used in Albion what, 4-6 months ago now.  its a event, you can earn new things and it will be over soon.  variety is good in a game.

Invasion is still terrible. I don't know how it possibly got passed the balancing department as I don't think it is possible to have a positive win rate defending, I'm not touching the game until Monday.

It seems like it wasn't touched since last time. All the old bugs are there, includding the wrong minimap on Road to Rome and Matchmaking messing up two-tier battles
This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

Huh ?

I was attacking and lost every battle except one ... defending is easy wins ; 12 fighters against slow planes with nerfed armor and gunners, 'protected' by 4-5 fighters (when you're lucky).

I am always an attacker (spelled l.o.s.e.r) because I almost always fly bombers.  Getting attacked by six heavies is not fun.

Reading other posts I think it's because of how GA's scale with tier. Last night I was trying to grind the MiG-9 and it was simply impossible to shoot down tier IX & X GA's fast enough to stop them from taking caps. I could see things being the opposite way at low tiers where GA's are basically cannon fodder.

Thanks, I didn't realize it was part of Summer Storm (which I also don't fully understand).
