I like boosters. I can see myself playing more to get as many as I can this weekend. Thank you!

+50% XP is nice too.

Boosters?  I don't see any boosters among the prizes.   :unsure:

I was sure I saw boosters. It's 50% extra XP. Sorry Captain.

what do you think this means?      Participate in capturing 3 sectors in a single battle

 

put one bullet in one ADA and fly away to all the other caps and do the same, then hope the bots take the caps?

 

make one complete circuit and then start capping          what if red captures that first one before you get back, would that wipe out that first bullet?    

 

so, one bullet in a red cap ADA there, and go cap a non-red cap?           "Participate" seems like an easy word to understand, but there's got to be a gotcha somewhere 

 

this would not be a ideal task for turny folks

Participation means earning capture points. So get a kill or destroy a ground target.

so this would be a great MR mission, or a heavy with bombs            do you actually have to capture the cap at all?

 

which MR has a bunch of little bomblets?         i think the fw-57 has six tiny bombs

No worries.  I often misread these things.

The way I understand it, you have to get a complete kill in the cap and/or a ground target AND capture the sector.

let's go with that          that's the only way sectors are captured      "Participate"   sheesh          just tell me what you want me to do           

 

oh wait, rockets and bomber flights, and just plain bots, capture caps      that wouldn't help you at all, if you didn't do a drive by first

Point does need to be captured by your team.

You don't have to be present when the cap gets captured but being there is the easiest way to be sure that it does get captured.


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

played for hours with an 80% WR today, and it never incremented even once        capped dozens of caps       i got bupkis, as far as i can tell

 

edit:  i found it      looking at current missions, i assumed that the 0/3 meant none of the three caps in that last battle registered properly 

 

the 0/3 doesn't mean anything at all, i guess         there's a tiny red square a couple of inches below the 0/3      that's your number      mine was a 9

 

sorry, WG      my mistake
