Hmm, i don't think i have the P-39Q yet. I have the P-39N1, but not the Q variant. guess i'll stick to soviet planes this weekend. I think the competition might be a bit stiffer this weekend though as there is only 2 categories rather than 3. Which only means there r 20 winners of 3 chevrons rather than 30. Nevertheless, I'm going to win in at least one category. I really wnat the Jl-1A-37. 

 

on a side-note, does getting the maximum number of chevrons only award a goblin or do u get a goblin and a JL-1A? because if I only get one plane, I'd much rather earn the JL. Sure, the goblin is worth more, but I hate that thing. Im not going to say it is a bad plane as so many people get mad at me when I say that. BUT, I personally despise that useless plane, so I'd rather get the JL

You have to be way more strategic in a bomber then in any other fighter type.....

You only get one plane. We are thinking of giving an opportunity to choose a reward if you have enough chevrons when the campaign ends.

Because Bombers and their pilots really don't count in the battle.

They are  easy targets to shoot and have no outcome on the battle.

They fly at max alt. running & hiding away from any direct enemy engagement.

Once they drop dirty bomb on useless targets, they tend to fly away from the battle.

They are asking for planes & pilots.. that contribute to the game.

What's required here are pilots with.... at least basic skill to compete in this event.

How was that for trashing Bomber pilots...….as a bomber pilot here on wowp......was just kidding.:teethhappy:

That was so good, my delicate bomber sensibilities were still bruised:izmena: when you said just kidding.:facepalm:

 

Nach


I use Nach instead of Nacht on purpose. And I pronounce it with the English "ch", like catch.

 does getting the maximum number of chevrons only award a goblin or do u get a goblin and a JL-1A?

 Presumably the former, though I kinda hope the latter in which case I'll happily enough try to pass the Hurricane IID requirement.

 

Surprised & somewhat disappointed that Premiums can be flown for this.

Not so much for me as I have a bunch of the relevant ones but because it disadvantages players who don't have access to them.

 

 

T4 & 5 is accessible for relatively new players but its also gonna mean a tough time over the weekend for lots of new players (and more experienced ones) since all players trying to rank will be lumped in the same narrow T3-6 battle range.

 

Only 40 80 places = a lot harder to attain ranks.

 

Is the Mastery rating top 10 across all the planes in category or top 10 for an individual plane?

Bit unclear: Do we need 10 battles total across all the planes in category (eg 3* Bf 109 B, 4* Bf 110 C-6 & 3* Bf 209 V4)

or 10 for each individual plane I want to get counted?

or just 10 for one plane, then others in category don't need to be min 10 to count?

 

 

This is a kinda tough one for me:

I already have the Spit DB, would be cool to get the P-39Q.

But the only one of the available Soviet planes I have in good state is the MiG-3 & isn't especially good for Defending with.

I do have a bunch of the relevant German planes & in pretty optimal setup yet I'm not particularly confident of being able to score high Attack points with them especially against well setup Soviet Defender players.

Here is where I'm kicking myself for not yet having got round to buying & Specialising up the Bf 109 E yet :hiding:

 Assuming I get more Chevrons I hope you'll go for that.

 

Edit2:

Event text says

Block Quote

 All the Soviet and German Tier IV-V classfighter.png fighters, classheavy.png heavy fighters, classmulti.png multirole fighters, including premium and special aircraft, can take part in the event

 But I-153 DM-4 and I-207/4 aren't listed, can we use those?

 

Edit3: 40-80 :hiding:

So they cut the amount of people who can make the prize list down to 80 this time, when last episode it was 120?  Is my math correct?

Yes.

It is a T6 not T5 Premium top prize though.

 

Also: I have re-purchased 109 E, retrained my top German pilot to it & am more than half way through Specialising :kamikaze:

i don't see that many Russian planes during the hours that i fly       we'll assume that russian bots will fill up the rosters

 

the skies will be full of german human planes       i could see some frustrated low-scoring german TKers out there        just saying

i already have both prize planes ( DB and 39Q ) so I am playing for the gold, crates and chevrons.

 

The question is:

       DO I play defensive or Do I play offensive.

My strength is in defense but why not play out of the box and be uncomfortable.

The rules are a bit confusing. For "Mastery" is it the top 10 battles across all planes or the top 10 from each plane? For example, if I fly 10 battles in each of 11 planes, do you count the totals from 110 battles?

Awrite I'm ready :)

109 E is now Specialised & equipped with (partly borrowed) half Ultimate, half Advanced setup.

No.

blindfold on Discord said : For example, the I-21, I-207/4 and Polikarpov I-153 DM-4 do not take part for their rarity and equal numbers

Rarity ?? No exceptions on the German side, despite the fact that I rarely see the 209V4 and 100D-1 ... :unsure:

 

 


Flying on EU, NA, ASIA and CIS servers

Presumably rarity as in 'number of (active?) players who have them' rather than 'frequency of being played'.

 

I guess I'm just spamming MiG-3 & Bf 109 E then.

I mean there are a lot worse planes to be flying :playing:

Top 10 across all planes, as usual in such events. So it doesn't matter if you use one or all of them :)

No, they won't count. Only results on the listed aircraft will be counted towards your progress.

 Top 10 across all planes

So 3* Bf 109 B, 4* Bf 110 C-6 & 3* Bf 209 V4 = 10 battles, would get counted for both German categories?
