The Invasion Game Mode is back to World of Warplanes!

 

This post will help you to refresh your memory on the main aspects of this mode.

 

This is an asymmetric game mode: one team will attack the positions held by the rival team in an attempt to capture them. At the beginning of the battle, all the territories on the battlefield are controlled by the defending team, and the attackers have limited time to recapture them. They will have 4 minutes to capture the first one, gaining an additional 90 seconds for every subsequent territory up to a maximum of 12 minutes of battle duration. 

 

Both teams will have a limited supply of reserve aircraft (respawns), win conditions are simple: the attacking team needs to capture all the territories in the given time or destroy all the enemy team aircraft, including the reserve ones. The defending team needs to save their warplanes, manage to keep at least one territory under their control or destroy the attacking team completely.

 

And the final important detail: since the defending team cannot recapture lost territories, assault classes (attack aircraft and bombers) will not have suitable targets. Thus, the matchmaker will only put these classes into attacking teams. Regular rules apply for all the other classes. For aircraft with outboard armament installation of bombs or rockets will not affect the matchmaking, they can be seeded both into attacking and defending teams.

 

For more information you can check the developers blog. However, Update 2.0.10 introduced the following changes to the game mode: 

 

  • The battle tier range for most map layouts has been changed from 4 to 2.
  • Added 3 new map layouts: Arctic Region: Night raid (battle Tiers IV-V), Cold Peak: Risky attempt (battle Tiers VII-VIII), and Alpine Gambit: Forgotten garrison (battle Tiers VIII-IX).
  • Improved some map layouts that were previously removed from the list of available ones: territories replaced, entry points were added or replaced as well for some map layouts.
  • Activated the Group respawn mechanics at 40-second intervals.
  • For some map layouts, the individual number of respawns available to teams has been configured.

maybe a nod to the no-respawn folks?       this will certainly allow me to sit and stew about getting killed by (fill blank with your name)

 

and maybe pay more attention to my six in my next life?

 

nah

Will this be as well balanced (giggle) as last week's bomber escort missions?

I don't remember this game mode having the huge payouts like escort mode.  I remember this mode being more in line with conquest.

Whoa... slow down dude.. Capt. Underpants has a brain and last week was NOT "balanced" at all.

BTW....It is not a RACE up the tech tree.

T7 is WAY different than T6 and T9 is all jets.

Learn the game before you jump tiers.

If you have a brain... wow... just.. wow.

Well.. you get more for winning, first.. second.. constant losses is demoralizing especially when you understand that little or nothing you do has any effect. That's bad for the playerbase. Maybe you missed it, but last weekend neither of the event segments got completed by the playerbase. Gee.. could it be that we disliked it? Given that the wekeend before both segments were completed in 3-4 hours?


Opinions are like certain body parts. Everyone has them and most of the time they stink.

play Tier I, II, and III until Invasion is unavailable, that's the only way, I'm afraid.

An average player with an average goal: greatness, someday. Today, mediocrity will have to suffice. But no matter, I will always play to the best of my ability, and I will always strive to make the best of my ability just that little bit stronger and better.

Well, you missed out.

You could have just played your SE100 and raked in the credits and easily have completed the 3 heavy fighter missions.

Hope you don't do that next weekend.

Have a good week,

Gunny

How about modifying the "Q" times, and fixing all the  "BUGs" here.

Have been getting "Q" times from instant to 10 seconds. playing tiers 6-10.

Then getting tossed into battles 1X1 humans, and the rest bots.

"Q" could of been a little longer, and getting more human players in the battle. maybe "20, 30 or 40 seconds.

Then the bots seem to want to wonder all over the map without doing anything, but getting killed quick.

Some even wondering to enemy's spawn point and just but doing nothing, or going to lost caps, that are not there anymore.

Then there is the BSOD that shows up when loading back to hanger.

Hell had 1 battle were it showed I was the only one in the battle, even though I wasn`t. Did nothing but fly around in a circle.
