Heya, nice to see some new blood.

 

Unfortunately, the bomber missions are over so you'll have to earn the American Heavies the old fashioned way - by grinding. 

 

To get past where you are, you just need to keep flying, keep playing and hitting those x2 Experience modifiers where possible. 

 

Beyond that, it might help to let us know exactly what areas you need help with. Right now you're a little vague in what kind of help you need. You don't need tokens to progress up a tech tree.

 

If you REALLY want to try a bomber, they're selling the tier III Blennie as a package in the premium shop at about 50% discount right now. Its a nice little plane and not particularly expensive so you can try that.

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

and the same welcome from me!     

 

look in the premium planes section wowp website and grab the tier 3 Blenheim, it's a great introduction to bombers and it's on sale for less than $4 USD

 

sale prices change and sales on particular planes disappear, so check the availability dates

 

fly it high and press the space bar when the bombsite is perfectly over your targets while flying level, then use the A and D keys to rudder over toward your next target

 

while you're reloading your bombs, jink and jive all around to throw off fire from the AA guns

 

enjoy!

I too welcome you and endorse that Blenny.  Money maker for sure.  But fly it high?  What kind of fun is that?  Live a little (and die a lot)  trikke!

i'm already enough of a bullet magnet, but flak does seem to have been reduced up high

 

and it takes a really determined fool fellow to reach high enough up to a specced Blennie

The AR 2 is becoming a favorite bomber at T4 it is fast and hits very hard starting to get it down pack you may want to look at his bomber. Using it to get the B32 missions done currently I don't play hours on end but it gets me there to my end goal.

Like Spirit said, it's difficult from your post to know exactly what kind of help you need. You mentioned bombers. You can work your way through the tech tree to get German or Russian bombers right now. It would be fairly quick to fly the I-5 to get xp to get the Tsh-2 and then fly that to get xp to get the first Russian bomber, the SB. Or as suggested, you could use real money to buy the Blenheim bomber. It is a fairly easy plane to fly and be successful with.

 


 

It is hard for a beginner to earn tokens. You need to have a tier 4 aircraft or higher to earn tokens for getting the first medal of the day. You need to have aircraft in low, mid, and high tiers to earn tokens from the daily missions.

 

It looks like you have gotten a good start down the American multi-role line. You should be able to fly the F3F a few times to earn xp to upgrade and then unlock the tier four Buffalo fairly quickly. Be advised that after the F3F, the planes in the Corsair line are fast with high hit points, but do not turn well, so they are harder for beginners to fly. I hate to sound like a broken record, but the British fighter line that leads to the Spitfires is a good place for new players to learn the game. The planes in the Spitfire line have ok hit points, alright speed, and can turn very well, which makes them easy to use.

I agree on the Blenny, its like $3.00 in the premium shop, and its a terrific trainer.  well worth double that.

Hi and welcome!

 

There are some decent tips over here. I am sure that more experienced pilots will be happy to help you and answer your questions like they do here. And of course, I am here for you as well.

 

Good hunting! :honoring:

Noticed that you only researched the USA tree.

If you want an American bomber you should research the P-26, P-35 branch as at tier V (XP-44) the new B-17's will start to 'grow'.

Faster way to a bomber is the Soviet SB already at tier III, you only need to research the Tsh-2 and then SB.
