Even the forum is failing? :amazed:

WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

Is the next event, starting Thursday, the bomber escort again or something else?

There is a 4th stage? and please no more attrition, it's ground hitters' nightmare.

I'm actually looking forward to playing Attrition in my tier IX and X ground attacks. I really feel it's the most balanced mode so far.

4th stage? For some reason I have some association of when my wife went into labour, it was the same thing - just waiting until stages are over.

Anyway, it would be nice to be able to actually choose the mods. I don't buy the engine cannot handle it. If they are afraid that there would not be enough people (legit), just add player count so everyone can see how many players are playing the mods.... I know, I know, its Wargaming :facepalm:.

Attrition is a no-ground-hitter mode, unless your sense of balance is extremely favoring the fighters it just can't be balanced.

I had a fairly good time in attrition flying my 265 solely because of its air combat capability.

 

I mean, it just don't look right even at the first glance. Fighters can capture AND attrition, while ground hitters can only capture and BE attrition-ed, how is that supposed to be balanced, at all?

The ground pounder has as much impact on the battle as the fighter simply by pushing the multiplier. Fighters can cap but they're also more likely to be intercepted, engaged and taken out than the ground pounders. And a fighter pushing caps isn't attriting anyone.

Fighters are definitely not easier to be taken out, they are aerial combatants, instead of aerial targets like bombers and GAAs.

They are also able to pushing caps AND attrition on the same time, by shooting down enemy planes inside a contested cap (instead of ADF).

These are exactly the reasons why attrition is favoring fighters so much.

Really? More so than conquest, or just of the special modes? I'll have to pay more attention to the balance of attrition. The last time I really played attrition a lot I was still relatively new to the game, the last time or 2 it was on I didn't get to play it.

I played fighters in attrition since that was what i had, but I do seem to remember that when I ran into the guys at the top of the leader-board they were in RB-17s and high tier GAAs.
