So let's try this out. I'm as skeptical as the next guy that thinks this will go any farther than being buried in this forum. I also have pretty damn low expectations when it comes to these devs trying to "fix" or rebalance something that was broken in the first place. But let's see how much attention this might get to WG and the devs. Hope the options in the poll are sufficient. Let me know if not. Poll away! :izmena:

 

P.S Just to be clear this is a poll for a request to remove invasion mode AFTER this event summer storm is over. Kind of pointless to take action now... the damage is already done.

Like I said on Discord - if it was in rotation with Attrition and Conquest it wouldn't be so obnoxious. But it isn't so it is.

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

I can add that in if majority wants the option... :P

But then the poll would be reset, which is stoopid forum design.

This game mode always has a problem with super OP bots as well.  Even when the next phase is counting down on the timer.  Went through two battles today that they swept through all of the sectors for a Superiority.  The battles were over in 5 minutes!

 

The first one in my ME-262, fully upgraded, I setup behind an enemy ME-262 and even with my afterburners going, he left me behind like I was standing still.

 

Forget fixing this game mode, just delete it entirely.

Perhaps a better place for this would be the official thread and poll... that I mentioned in the post above yours...  :facepalm:

I think Conquest and Invasion would work a lot better if the teams were made up of only human players. They require coordination. The bots just didn't understand.

 

These happened while I was trying to grind stock T & B fighter planes, so I found them to be annoying. Maybe if I were set with a ready airforce of upgraded planes I would have felt differently.

Rather then a stick it felt like a pitch fork this mode is awful you take a multi role in with bombs and you are on defense - makes perfect sense? Or you are up-tiered yes I know it works both ways sometimes you are up and the next you are a lower tiered but 90 percent of the time you are lowered in my case anyways - not a fun game when the opposition is elite and your team is not. I know its a matter of choice but MM could be programed to match games better.

 

After the pitch fork it then felt like a kick in the low hanging fruit basket.

Yes, this.  I don't mind getting down-tiered sometimes.  I was trying to grind the German GAA line.  Well, until the Stuka gets the big guns, it's a boatload of NOPE as far as speed/armaments/HP.  The Eule is a big, fat target when flying against T5 anything.  Well, as an anti-GAA, it's OK.  But on invasion weekend, it was a big bunch of games over in a hurry, and spending a bunch of time in respawn.  Grinding the German GAA line ain't gonna happen in Invasion mode. Heck, grinding anything ain't gonna happen.  But hey, I found out that Pe-2s fall just fine to the guns of a Me-410.  :)  Otherwise, kick in the fruit basket.

Definitely make sure to post in the Official Poll Thread, all.

 

Just make sure you follow the rules and comment style.

To what end SP?  End game?  Clan activities?  Anniversaries being returned?   Reinstatement of alpha/beta emblems?  What is the feedback being used for?  Devs have never listened before, why now?  Invasion sounds like a perfect example where bugs reported in past implementations still exist with the latest re-release.  That’s ok?!?

 

What is the long term game plan that WG/Persha has never shared with the player base?  

It’s been a nice song n dance show for almost a year now...how are the population numbers doing?   Care to share?  No, that won’t ever be revealed.

 

There’s no trust any more, just more doublespeak...

End Game? Making the game ever better and creating an experience that players want to return to day after day. Clan Activities? Definitely something we are working on for upcoming Updates. Anniversaries and Emblems? Something that we are discussing and working to change or possibly get reinstated. 

 

Feedback goes to the Devs as we are continuing to improve that relationship and helping to create more opportunities to steer the game in the best direction possible.

 

As for player numbers, once I get those numbers pulled from Devs I will gladly pass them on. However, that requires a data pull and is not very high on the list of things to get done in the game as they are working on Bug Fixes and further Updates.

It seems to me that when the devs want to implement something (Invasion Mode for example), it just gets done without any kind of input from the player community.

 

When it is something suggested by the player community it is always being 'discussed' or 'working to change' or 'possibly get reinstated'.

 

Is it just me?  Or is there a trend?
