Hello All,  

I've been flying nothing but bombers the last 3 days and in that time, I have lost only 2 battles.  My win percent is up almost a full percentage.  It seems like the bots will mostly ignore humans in bombers and try to shoot down the bomber stream.  Mostly flying my JU 88A and HE 111 bombers.  Picked up a few Doolittles and Lang medals along the way.  Was it supposed to be like this?

 

-Marty

You can lose as a bomber/GA if there aren't a lot of human fighters on your side.

The game mode's extremely unbalanced towards the Attackers at the moment. The Defenders have to pull out a miracle to win most of the time. So far I haven't lost a single battle, the closest was one fight where I was the only human GAA, and another where our Bombers were not coordinated with the GAAs, which had no ordnance. I personally stopped caring after getting my first GAA box yesterday, didn't even try for the second one


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

I've actually had some pretty close calls and some other lost battles as the attacking side. (mostly due to ppl being AFK or really good defenders)

Judging from this I don't think it's THAT unbalanced.

It's more like the usual LF supremists' whining.

No, it is that unbalanced, and I'm talking from a GAA perspective.

What I was trying to say is that it is unbalanced, but not that dramatically.

Some are suggesting fixes way too inclined towards the defenders/fighters (for instance, reducing bombers by 50%)

At least it's not as unfair as what bombers and GAAs faced in attrition mode.

Well, as of about an hour ago they 'fixed' it alright.  Nothing like watching at least five, maybe six, waves of bombers get through with zero damage to the enemy. 

 

If you fly defender now, you can just ignore the bombers.  You will win.

The only time I have lost matches as a defender is when the defending team has humans that chase other humans around the map to settle a score, if as a defender you attack and clear bombers, you will win, but alas those guys don't read the forums.:facepalm:

For the second part of this weekend I only flew GA ... did fighters and heavies in part 1 and could hardly get 5 wins for the first mission (the few times that I ended up on attack helped !!).

Had a couple a battles yesterday where the whole defense was just bots and attack had 6 humans (all GA). Not enough volunteers for defense, it seems.


Flying on EU, NA, ASIA and CIS servers

Yeah. If you played games up at t9 and t10 in or with a ground pounder, you got a lot of PvE games because there weren't many masochists left who wanted to play fighters of any type after the first couple hours.

 I'd also like to add that it's not just bombers, i had my record in a battle against humans today... victory in a GAA in 2:53.  50% of games were Roflstomps in about 5 minutes or less :amazed:

Edit: also, when you are playing against the few masochists up at t8-10 playing solo fighters, or in PvE and you have to decide if and how much you want to farm by letting them take out some of your bombers from the early attack waves to allow for more personal points and capture points, because you know you won't loose, you know something is seriously wrong with the game mode...

This is the Best ever :facepalm:..…. I flew my Bomber, with my left hand & bombed with my eyes Bombed with my eyes closed. ( I used my Star Wars Force ), and still WON.:great:   30 battles...... 30 Wins. You just might want to open up your wallet :ohmy: .....and buy a few bombers to keep your win / loss ratio at a respectable number.:coin:
