11 for each Period. And there's 3 Periods, so technically 33. Keep an eye on news and announcements as this is not the only opportunity to win the Venom with the wicked cammo and emblem.

Non-specialist planes need not apply because balance.

What happens if I already got Venom and I'd grind for it again? Am I going to get the gold value instead?

I've got the Venom from years ago..I hadn't played in many years so I don't remember how I got it.The paint jobs would be cool but not something I'll put too much time into just to get that.

I have been successfully sp00ked by this event.

 

I fear the Spitfire and Pancake apocalypses happening at their respective tiers and the tiers around them.


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

CHINA NUMBAH WAN

 

I even made a custom skin for my IL-10M!

top 33 is still nowhere near realistic for us mere mortals.   Why would I invest any time in this futile exercise if I don't have a maxed out pilot and plane to contest it with?

after you specced a few planes, you'll learn that Specialist is only marginally better than Elite

 

to me, pilot skills seem to be noticeably more important, but others disagree        i'm leaning toward psychological benefits myself, because i'm certainly more confident

 

and we cannot tell for sure if both aren't really just big scams, since nothing is truly measurable in battle conditions 

 

wait... i think cooldown is certainly measurable!

In the past, and I cannot say for sure this is the case now, they would pull the data from the servers and award from the data they gathered.  So they announce the contest, tell you what to do, and they worry about the data gathering which are just very simple queries.  

 

So while there is no in-game mode like Bomber Escort, they have laid out the rules, the planes and the rewards.  All you have to do is use one of the planes, fly the heck out of it and then hope for the best.  The Hall of Fame should enable you to track your progress.  In the past, I used to to track my progress on competitions such as this, but the old HOF was, IMO, more informative or maybe I am just lazy. 

 

If you dedicate enough time, you might be able to come in the top X number of planes.  Since Bomber Escort is over, the population is likely down and thus your chances increase.  [And... just think of all the people who click on battle, ignore the messages, don't visit the forum, and don't pay attention to WG emails all of which further increase your chances.]

 

These type of contests were the primary way I built up my stash of gold that, while pitiful, is mostly "free" if you count your time as free.  

 

Hope this helps.

You are absolutely right in your description. Thank you for your help!

 

Visually it won't be displayed anyway and the results will be gathered from the server data. The winners will be announced in 7 day period.
