  • The ratings will be based on the number of destroyed sections of ground targets.

does this mean that i don't have to kill the whole target, just bits and pieces?

 

and it means the heavies will be getting dusted off and gassed up, too

Yes, every separate section of ground target counts toward the ratings.

Still think it sounds funny.  “...fly on the Boeing...”

...get on your car and drive to the store vs get in your car..

...get on your horse works...

...she boarded the airplane when she got on the plane at the tarmac...hmmm

...I’d go with fly in your airplane though, since you’re theoretically inside the airplane, not a wing walker standing on the airplane.

...get on your chafee and battle..

...get on your USS Missouri...

Any English majors here?

*cracks her knuckles*

So basically.. since I already -have- the a26-B and there is nothing else on that reward list I care about.. that means this weekend can safely be spent doing dailies or being a complete meanie and hunting bombers in my heavy fighters?

Good luck to everyone flying bombers in the coming event... not sure whether I’ll try my hand at the american bombers... or spend the weekend hunting ;)

Assuming it’ll be a fun weekend for those running high-alt planes - we might actually see some coordinated fighter cover & high-flying dogfights centered around those B-17’s? Equally excited to intercept or provide escort.

Interesting concept.  Puzzling that you can only qualify in one category or the other.

Probably because the prizes are identical, so they give you whichever you won the highest in?

I'm assuming this is so that the people who grind more than play perfect games get a reward still and don't just get overridden by say.. me.. you.. Prenzlau, Sigfried, etc.

Also, while the lack of in-game tracking of your position is annoying. It's kinda brilliant... because you have no idea where you are you just -have- to keep playing.

Add ClosedCoffin to your list.  He's the best bomber pilot I have seen play.

What you dont like supply chests and bragging rights?



As for myself i now have an excuse to do the run up the B-17 line and give the Dornier's a rest.

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is very hit or miss. Usually I start on the right track and then a make a weird left turn and get lost in the weeds ... 
And yet it doesn't stop me from speculation.

Specialist Planes I have from : USA, UK, Germany, USSR, Europe
Light Fighters:  XP-31, Model 81A-1, P-40, P-51A, P-39N-1, XF15C, DH.100 F1, Bf 109 B / E / E-3, Me209v4, Me209 A
Multi-Roles: F11C-2, F4F, P-47B, Fw 56, He 112, Fw 190 A-1 / A-5 / D

Heavy Fighters: P-38 F/J,  XP-58, Tu-1, Bf 110 C-6, SE 100, Me 410, Do 335 A-1, Me 262

Attack Aircraft: Hs 123, Ha 137, Hs 129 A, Ju 87 G, Me 265, Me 1099 B-2
Bombers: Do 17 Z, He 111 H2, Do 217 M
 Japan: not even once.

I mean.. bragging rights are nice -if- you have a way to brag them in-game.

Like.. if my plane glowed gold as I flew around because I took 1st... I might just consider it

I might be wrong but I believe when it comes to aircraft naval terminology is used. It actually means "on board", so :unsure:

If you have the Invader you will receive gold as compensation, Premium Days, some crates and ultimate equipment.

White_Widow18 suggests absolutely correctly: you will get to the rating according to your best position. For example, you score 3rd in Perseverance rating and 2nd in Mastery rating, so you'll be placed in Mastery rating.

Ah, OK ! That clears it up for me ...

Was a bit confused as both missions ask you to do the same thing (destroying sections) for 2 rewards. Not really into bombing, but this might be a good excuse to try again ... (in EU so I will fly Do-17M)


Flying on NA and EU servers
