i'm going to need some help deciphering this:

 

The Flaming Shores event will run from October 3 to October 28. 

 

It will be divided into four stages consisting of two equal phases, during which you will fight in the Bomber Escort, Conquest, and Attrition modes.

i'm sure i'll like it, I just wish the participation time would be extended, one day only for each phase, similar to the last event, 

The first phase of each stage will last from Thursday to Friday, the second one—from Saturday to Sunday

very difficult to accomplish things with real life in the way.

maybe add 12/24 hours onto each phase? or extend it to the server reset time after midnight?

I'm with Allenr on this one. I did play in the last set and getting anything done, save maybe the global mission is extremely difficult. Since Thursday and Friday and Saturday and Sunday of each week are the same missions, why not have all four days run the same mission? It would be more enjoyable for the players I think; I know I'd appreciate it and have a more fun.

The timing of the phases is the same as it was in the Summer Storm Event.

Personal missions and Global Goal are designed to reset after each phase, giving you an opportunity to earn more crates during weekends. Thus, you can complete your missions twice during one weekend. Sure, you cannot start your missions on Thursday and keep progressing them till Sunday as they should be reset on Friday, but if you complete your missions during phase 1 and then one more time during phase 2 you will get 2 Special Supplies per mission instead of getting one if missions were not reset.

Or just the Gold for the First Section, Work got in the way... 

heres hoping Tonight will be Better.

 

I am still finding the Victory Conditions to be a bit Confusing.

When Attacking (Bomber Escort), must you get Bomber Flights to Safely Exit the map or just destroy Bases?

When Defending (Attacking Bomber Flights), do we need to kill Bomer Flights Prior to destruction of our Bases or Kill them before they Escape the map?

 

I've had some very long Matches, Three Waves of Bombers... And I've had some Very Short Matches, one Attack Wave only...

 

Thanks,

-ShoeButton

You must get your Bombers (10) to safely exit the map. Destroying bases will help you to escort bombers as AA guns are pretty rough and can shoot down all of your bombers.

You need to kill the Bomber Flights before they escape the map. You should not allow 10 bombers to escape. 

 

The progress can be traced right in the middle of the HUD under the icon of a strategic object. The line with numbers 10/10 - it counts down how many bombers left to escape.

Why doesn't the number of "lives" scale with the number of attacking bombers?:sceptic:

we all know this is a ridiculous game mode in it's present state with it's present reward system 

otherwise everything is coming along swimmingly

yeh, really

i'm not kidding...

.

.

.

it'll draw them in like flies on schptlit

really... this is the winning path,

I'm sure this time

 

 

 


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

Are you sure about that?

 

 

Do you mean 9:30 Pacific according to the rest of the world... or are you going by forum time, which is usually an hour off?

I apologize for the misinformation :unsure: It looks like the system was launched for NA a little bit later but I'm glad you managed to get your crates!

WG please remove the win condition on the 1st part of each mission for flaming shores its ridiculous that I need 5 wins just to get working on crates... its way too random as too weather you can win or not depending on crappy MM and bot behavior etc.... I must have played 20+ games in multi-role and somehow could not win 5 times, usually cause of dumb [edited]bots and lopsided match making...

 

As a side note how hard can it be to program the match maker to balance specialized planes I had 3 matches where it was one team with 4 specialized planes against mine with 0... guess what we lost...

If they got rid off the 5 wins mission than how will I get me gold?

 

Why would they do that with the matchmaking?  The whole point of grinding a plane to specialist (and spending all that money and parts on enhancing and than calibrating equipment) is to get an advantage.  If you didn't get an advantage than why do it?

They could easily change that mission to something else that is less reliable on random chance and more reliable on your ability to play the role intended much like the 2 missions that follow it.... Having a win condition is silly why do you think they removed it as a requirement to specialize planes.

 

All I am saying is that if there were 4 specialized planes available for that match in the pool it should automatically place 2 on each team rather than stacking one team as an example...
