I thought there was supposed to be "waves" when planes respawn - nope still a trickle mode.  Also why do the defenders get a repair?  Why do defenders get cap back when shooting down attackers?  It's nearly impossible for attackers to win.  Thanks, another great mode for bombers and GA to flounder in.

I use to laugh at people when they would complain about match maker being unbalanced.

My biggest response was to tell them to put on their big gurl panties, stilettos and stop crying.

If you improve in the game and dogfighting then Match Maker wont matter.

 

However, this invasion mode is so far off the balance scale of win/ loss that it is far better to exit the game than to waste time playing it.

Not even match maker was ever as bad as this mode if Porta- Potty Invasion.

 

Of course it is OK. This game is about wrecking as much as possible, respawn, wreck some more.

It is no longer about winning. If it was about winning then there would be no respawn and death would be final.

You and me both, buddy.

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.

It doesn't help that the attackers have about 2x the reserves and unless they are a really bad team - rarely go through them.

I was playing multirole for the event, first with my j7w1 cause I wanted to specialise it. But then it got stuck "in battle" after, I asume, someone saw they are on ofence side and rage quit before the game started, I don't blame them. So I got kicked back to hanger, with my plane out of comission. What the heck ill just play with another one... So I get my russian tier 4 multi and I play a few games, have 17 targets left to kill for the supply box. And the exact same thing hapens! Now both my multiroles are stuck ina battle that seemingly never ends! These were the only 2 multiroles I had! All the cursing and pulling my hair out is for naught since I can't finish the multirole mission, it's 2:40am where I am so I'm going to bed.

 

This was absolutely terrible, I think people overreacted to bomber escort but this event was complete trash. I probably played 20 or 25 matches, never lost on defence, won once on offence. 

 

Terrible event.

Thats great for you but I have to destroy 30 hard ground targets in one battle, which means I have to do Attack aircraft or Bomber. So I cant just hope for defense ill always be attack. Being bomber means ill be ganked by 2 heavies that will follow me around the whole match which means ill have to stay at 13k feet going 100mph which gives me time for one or two bombing runs before the time runs out. 

Here is the primary problem, in attack 5 of your planes cant fight back, 2 bomber and 3 attack aircraft, the bombers are basically lost, they wont do crapespecially if they are AI they are just free deaths for the enemy and puts us 2 planes down strait off the bat, the attack aircraft stand a chance with their guns but if your ganked by multis or heavies youre done. Its basically 10 fighters vs 15 and the AI fighters get absolutely trashed when they are outnumbered.

I don't think I have to remind everyone that this mode was voted to be removed permanently from the game when Wargaming asked about it :hiding:


This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

You know when an event is a dog's dish when you see people quitting on your side as soon as they see they are on offense.  Last week, I figured they would correct something as soon as they noticed how one sided it was.  What a naive fool I am.    :facepalm:

Ugh I played several battles, only won one in a T4 I mistook for a T3 and one in Beaufighter where I spent about half the battle running away from a headhunting 109 E bot.

 

From recollection I did grind out some missions in the Tornado last time we had this mode.

 

Edit: also I was just gonna try the P.1056 but I got kicked out of game (you were disconnected message, then it just got stuck logging in, had to force close & restart the game) and now its stuck 'in battle', thanks Obama WG

Persha will look at the results and say:  "You are not playing the mode correctly" or some other nonsense.  They are truly clueless and their hubris knows no bounds.  

 

Also, keep in mind, they kick off these events when the weekend starts, so tweaks ain't in the picture.  

 

I am strongly considering training some pilots in some T3 premiums.  I wonder... do I have any T2 premiums?  Checks hangar... Oh wow, I have a lot of T2/T3 premiums (from prior events that were actually worth something to grind).  Time to get crackin'    In the last round, the crates were basically filled with trinkets and trash, I don't feel like I am missing out on anything.  

 

Be wery, wery quiet, I'm hunting seals hahahaha.

I just finished the 2ND of two battles where my B-32 didn't get to drop a single bomb, let alone a stick.  The first one I was blown away by a swarm of heavies before I could get to a target.  I came in at #1 on my team by virtue of downing two heavies.  Great bots of fire!

 

The 2nd battle got the old black screen.  By the time I got back in the battle it timed out at the two minute mark.  I don't know how my bomber did without me cause it ain't come back yet.  The loss of the mini map is a nice handicap to the attackers.  The defenders just need to pick a base and stick with it.

 

I am playing just to see how bad this can get.  To heck with the win%.

Well, I got the answer to just how bad it can get awful quick.  Another black screen, another battle finished before I could return, another missing B-32.

Well wasn't going to play but have had a bit more success with big gun Multiroles this afternoon.

This mode really suits their huge firepower (Heavies too?), makes life hell as GA, Bomber & to lesser extent Lights.

My only success is coming in Energy Fighters.

The ability to dive -through- the furballs and pick off a couple of targets and have enough speed to outrun anyone following you seems to be -very- key.

I got to wondering how I kept coming in at #1 on the losing team when I was doing so poorly.  It turns out that the attacking bots are very bad compared to their defending equivalents.

 

Did they set out to see just how one sided they could make this?  If so, they succeeded.  Too bad they couldn't put any of that 'expertise' into fixing bugs.

 

Enough playing target for bot heavies.

Yep, the attacking bot bombers & GA go off focused on their individual priority (that was supposed to have been tweaked to occur less) & get chewed up.

Doesn't help that the Stronghold sectors are tough as heck to kill.

I actually hate this mode so far. I could find -some- silver lining in last weekend.. but this is just.. boring -and- bad.
