More power, more speed, and even more destruction. Heavy warbirds are ready and eager for some blasting fights! You are the only one to decide which side to choose in the sky of World of Warplanes!

So wait, the MULTIROLE leaderboard scored us for damage to AIR TARGETS ONLY, but the HEAVY leaderboard counts Cap points from Air AND Ground targets? 

 

Am I the only one who finds this funny?

Nono.. even I am finding this one to be asinine. Especially as at least one plane in that list has no ordnance -option- even... but what do we know.

However, if WG is going to encourage me to unmothball the T10 heavies.. so be it. My three T10 heavies haven't had their guns unlimbered in extended anger for a while now.

You and me both, Brother! :great:


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.

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, Me 209 v4 / A, Me P.1092, 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,

How else are Heavies balanced around their ordinance loads like the Me 210 or Do 335 gonna contribute?

*looks at her F7U and other ordnance heavy MRFs* They'd be no worse off than some of the MRFs were and there's a lot less ordnance dependent heavies than MRFs? 

I'm saddened that I can't use my SE 100 since switched-nation planes don't count toward this, but.. c'est la vie ;)

Have to pass on this event, I don't much enjoy heavies.  The sheer quantity of them going to be out this weekend though may restrict me to T4 to avoid them.

P-38F is still in the list. You might have to stick to tier 3

Hm, I thought it was limited to T6.  Oh well.  greywar will probably want to play heavies and try to compete, so I will probably fly something with him.

Hmm, I think I'm going to stick to only the one category this time.

I'm not going to be able to play full weekend so I want to maximise my score.

 

I do enjoy several of the planes on each side, not sure yet which one is likely the most useful for this.

 

I will note: its not just 'offensive cap points' but also 'cap points on defense' & that can mean flying clean to help you rack up points by dominating defense vs a bot stream.

C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.

No reason not to even try. Fly the planes you can, for as many battles you can manage. Several people have surprised themselves with the results, thinking they would not even place high enough for prizes.

The 38F is a T5 plane.
