  This mode event is simply to get us to spend money on bombers. If you don't like bombers you are just sh-t out of luck !! I have no bombers, Who wants to spend all weekend flying slow and bulky just to gets some wins. Some do im sure, grab your visa and buy some bombers...

LOL, Jones, you crack me up.  Bombers can be a ton of fun in normal times.  I've flown with some guys who can really make them work, and you can totally kick @$$ all day long, if you do it right.

 

Even after the nerf.

 

I've seen it.  I've done it.  I would say this event is more for GAA drivers...

    You seem fairly naive in your rhetoric concerning bombers but since you don't fly them I can see why. Not every event is going to showcase every desired type of plane. That said, there is the Vampire, and I obtained the Do 335 A-1 through plans, and I know people who have gotten planes, some of them fighters, spontaneously in loot crates. I don't think there is any great pressure to force people to obtain bombers. 

    I think your mild hostility towards bombers is not going to make you any new friends or gain any respect from your readers. It seems more like unbridled selfish idealism on your part. You post your frustrations without much thought behind what you write and while many people might understand the need to vent, your quite the serial poster and I'm curious as to what you hope will come of it?

    Bombers are here to stay and I say the more the better! Maybe a bomber sometime will drop some leaflets on you explaining how a person can look on the bright side. When you ranted many months ago I tried to help you, but since I have realized that your just going to pick a new rant. I'm not saying a person does not have the right to rant, but personally I think you need to add more information on why you feel a certain way, more than just "flash frustration posts".

Well, Escort mode is perhaps GA/Bomber-centric if you want to win, but at the same time, Escort gave a pretty large role to heavy fighters for once that's more than just harassing bomber players. The gamemode is spam GA/Bombers if you want to win near-guaranteed, but, it's also possible for you to win 90-100% of the time in other classes if you flight up with somebody who have GA/Bombers.

 

Besides, we have Conquest coming up for this weekends event mode, looking forward to it a lot more than Escort, that's for sure. And Attrition the week after that will be a really nice change of pace.

 

Escort; a terrible gamemode, not a ploy to get people to buy planes.


I do fly Chinese aircraft a fair amount so... *ahem*

One could make the case that other modes like attrition favor light fighters. Which I personally don't fly much.

 

You can also use GA so it's not strictly bombers, and they're plenty of both in the tech trees so no Visa needed.

 

And if you don't want to fly GA or Bombers flight up with one.

 

Really not as dire as you make it out

    If you are such a grammar Nazi along with others whose only claim to fame is that they correct the few grammatical errors that I make, then I would ask that you clean up the town by equally checking everyone's grammar.

I already had a Blenheim, but I bought ground out a Dornier because I needed something above Tier III. I was able to get all of the upgrades by playing it during the Bomber Escort mode.

 

Likewise, I elited the both the BSh-2 and IL-2 all during the event.
 

I didn't complain; I just realized the potential and exploited the opportunity. I'll elite my new IL-2 (t) during the next Bomber Escort mode.

Bubba's rough on people he loves


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.
