Oh My God. I really like the way the matches play out.

More exiting, intense and well just over all fun.

I don't know maybe it is because there are more humans playing...NOT

Still had a few bot only matches.

 

The entire superiority / depleting resources system really works for me in this mode of game pay.

Could be just me but it seems the matches are longer, for the most part.

Who knows, perhaps WG ramped up the bots or whatever but I do like the EVENT and wish it was

the standard game play.

 

No I do not mean the rewards of crates, gold and such. I mean the game play itself.

It was really difficult to walk away from. Well OK, when your winning it is hard to walk away from.

You still get a few loser teams that play like training room ADA but even those matches seem more exciting

 

MY HOPE:

          If WG does not return to the 15 minute limit superiority or last man standing ( 1.4 ) style [ much preferred ].

   That they will use the Red Comet mode of game play.

MINUS the bombers of course. I hated playing them...SO BORING but they are good at ramming.

There will be more modes coming.. I do not think you will like them nearly so much. This attrition mode to me, is amazing. It and conquest (normal mode) are my two favorites, with this being -definitively- #1 in my list of favorite modes. 
A lot of people hate this match type, but I enjoy the frell out of it.

we did pretty okay in attrition today, no complaints about the gameplay itself       i still prefer conquest, because i understand the conquest flow better 

 

but i've always had a nasty habit of stealing half-dead kills from bots (and from my flight partner SFMY, but i always apologize)

 

and attrition rewards that greedy habit, so it fits me

 

it also rewards turny planes that kill fast, and i don't fly them as much anymore 

 

but i did today, and had to take a shower afterwards to wash off the dirty

[Optimistic ramblings about Attrition Mode]

 

Oh, you just wait for the next few weekends of hell on wheels.  The upcoming modes are so unbalanced, you will soon realize that Attrition and Conquest are the only decent ones.

 

Just a warning.  WOWP has recycled these modes so often, with tweaks that wreck the game even further, that it gets much less fun the more you go down their insanity laden rabbit hole.  

 

Not to be discouraging.  Maybe since the last go-round they fixed it all.  

 

[Edit]  Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha... heh

Attrition is definitely a pretty fun mode :)

Is mostly close enough to our normal mode it doesn't take much adjustment.

The other modes are pretty much dominated by Heavy & Multiroles which is nice if you particularly enjoy playing those types.

 

Escort is pretty widely disliked, WG has found it hard to get properly balanced, though it has the distinct advantage that quite massive scores can be accumulated even on losing side.

I forget the difference between Conquest & Invasion, one of them I do enjoy more than the popular opinion.

Invasion is widely considered to be the worst and most poorly balanced game mode.

 

 I feel like Bomber Escort is generally great, especially for grinding, but there needs to be another, shorter game mode available concurrently with it, because playing lots of matches in it can get exhausting rather quickly in a way that the shorter modes just don't.


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.

I thought they had Bomber Escort down reasonably well the second weekend it came around. I cannot remember the event anymore but it was workable. The Attackers/Escorts still had the advantage back then, but not so much that a competent flight couldn't stop them.

 

Then they broke it.

 

By nerfing turrets and buffing bots, especially bot accuracy against slow moving and non-maneuvering targets, plus adding Heavy Fighter bot priority vs bombers and suddenly the defense became overwhelming.

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

On the other hand they buffed the hitpoints of bombers and I think they said increased the number of bombers for this round.

I did fairly well with attrition. Got the bonus crates for Fighters, Heavies, and Bombers.
GAA was not a hassle either but i ran out of time before i could make that happen because ...
I fell down the MR rabbithole

MultiRoles were ... awful. Unless the MR in question was the turny kind. Then i did ok.
But i am still learning the ins and outs of Air+Ground pounding
in planes that do not have Heavy advantages in Altitude, Speed, and Hit Points.
 

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is much like my WinRate. 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 : Japan, USA, UK, Germany, USSR, Europe
Light Fighters:   XP-31, Model 81A-1, P-40, P-51A, P-39N-1, XF15C, DH.100 F1, Fw 56, He 112, Bf 109 B / E / E-3 / F, Me209v4, Me209 A, I-17
Multi-Roles: Type 91, F11C-2, F4F, P-47B, Fw 190 A-1 / A-5 / D, I- 5 / 15 / 16(e)(l)

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

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, Pe-2, Do 217 M

I couldn't play - long weekend.  At least there aren't 2-3 threads complaining about how unbalanced it was.  That's a good thing.

Sorry you couldn't play this weekend we all did miss seeing you in the matches.

Now we know who to blame for our losses since you were of NO help.

How dare you send in your bot replacement on such a weekend.

I got nearly 500k silver in one winning battle with my Do-335 in bomber escort.

The event mode is terrible for "grinding".  XP earnings are lower than normal since many of the battles end very quickly, giving low scores.
