(sorry, crosspost... but might be helpful to new folks!)

 

BEM (bomber escort) is a brand-new mode, and we're all trying to adjust... because previous modes were mostly light fighter (LF) centric 

 

and we'll be returning to those other modes soon enough, but in the meantime...

 

fly a bomber or a GA for the win!      and to a somewhat lesser extent, a heavy fighter or a multi-role (MR)!      

 

all of these classes of planes were largely ignored before BEM... and like me, you'll love these, too!

I don't know about enjoying the new mode, but it something different for a change. 

 

If you are defending, it's like playing some kind of a zombie mob control game.  They just keep on coming!  The most I've shot down in one battle was 43 planes and got some 31k+ battle points/experience.

 

While playing on the defense, it made me feel bad for the attackers who knew they were on a suicide mission to begin with.

The furballs are reminiscent of the old days except there were no bomber groups.Some of my matches had to be close to 10 minutes long and my logitech 3d got a heck of a workout last night and for the first time in a long time I had things flying off my desk while dog fighting.Of all the changes they made to this game over the years I like this one best.

Good Stuff Me Thinks..!

 

Im definitely Digging the new Mode, though as often as not im finding Frustration W/L.

 

Been spending a lot of time Winged Up and in Discord (ALAS) dropping in multiple Flights or my Flight and multiple singles through Synchronized Drops. Getting sometimes six or seven Humans per side, with Clan members spread across both teams, often All in the same Discord channel... Good natured Smack Talking going on across the Battlefield... It's A Bloody Fun Time! And on RARE occasions getting up to Five or Six Of my Crew on the Same Team/Discord just WOW! A Rippin' Good Time!

 

I've seen more High End Awards in the past two Daze than my time since Open Beta... Or it seems like that without digging through my Archived Account history from Pre 2.0 times...

 

Had quite a few Losses in this mode, some of them Spectacularly High Scoring games that Brutalize the mind through Tooth and Nail Struggle that come down to the Last Second!

 

Have had Long Bashing Victories that Begger the Imagination through shear Ferocity and Sensory Overload leaving me Completely Drained and Totally Satisfied at Battle's End. And Hollow Victories (two so far) that were So Short as to leave me staring at the screen saying "What The Hell Just Happened?"... these last matches had several Human Pilots on my team with Zero Humans on the Opposing Team.

 

Haven't tried flying any of my Bombers or GAA's yet, spending my time so far spread from Tier IV to Tier IX equally dispersed in Fighters, Heavy Fighters and Multi-Roll. Thinking now I should show my GAA's and Bombers some love tonight... Hoping my Wingmates will be amenable to that.

 

Still Learning This Mode!

Plenty Of Fun To Be Had!

See Y'all Out There!

 

Regards,

-ShoeButton

Longest I have been in - 20mins 12secs - came down to 5 planes left our side 

 

This should be called Attrition mode
