March of Nations has Premium plane discounts & weekly discounts for National Tree planes

https://worldofwarpl...tions-oct-2020/

 

So far I've bought:

Premium

VB-10

I had been eager to buy the Mustang IA but made a late choice to go for VB-10.

 

Soviet

I-210

Yak-3

 

German

Me.1102B

Me P.1101

Ta 183

BV P.212.03

He 112

 

Looks like I might get the XF-90 research finished & purchased if I run some battles on the F2H, otherwise I've filled out everything I want from the US tree except F-84F which is well out of research range.

 

Won't be buying anything from UK tree, totally filled out on that.

 

For Japan I'll probably buy J7W2, might finish off Ki-162-III research.


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

Grinded credits for I-211 last weekend.  

 

Flying I-211 doesn't really earn any credits, so I'll probably have to skip Germany week and purchase something USA next weekend.

I'm working on buying everything I had researched (outside of some T2-3 stuff).  I can't say I'm looking forward to flying a lot of these, though.  Just want to try them out to see which ones stick.
 

 

Soviet

  • IL-10
  • Tu-10
  • Yak-15
  • Yak-9
  • La-5
  • I-250

 

German

  • Ju-88P
  • Ta152
  • MeP.1101
  • Debating whether to buy the BVP.215.02- nobody recommends that plane, and I could use those credits elsewhere

 

USA (planned)

  • XF-90
  • P-51D
  • F4U-1

 

UK (planned)

  • Swift (if I get it researched in time, which probably won't happen)

 

Japan (planned)

  • Ki-162-I

It's a fair bomber, just not as good as the Ju-287.

Huge skip.  Stop at the 212.

Ditto. I'm done supporting WG since WG doesn't care to support us. No more WoWP improvements, no more purchases.

LOL, when I said 'none' it's because I already have every plane available in the game, 298.  When they roll out new planes  I will be right there, money in hand.

That kind of makes me want it more, like I need to find out firsthand how bad this plane really is.  Alas, I spec'd a couple planes yesterday and now need to rebuild silver to be able to afford the XF-90 next week.

Ok. There was no way to know that.

Awhile back, when I was wondering about this plane, the info that I was given was that the Tier X batplane went from being a nimble, roll-all-over-the-sky light fighter to being a heavy brick.  Fraggin' thing has a tailgun, though. got downed by that recently.  Random tail-gunner damage right up there with radar-guided flak in the un-fun category.  (but that's a different topic. . . . )

So far, I-211 and F-84F.   I think I'll probably save for J7W1 as my last March of Nations purchase.

Really enjoying the 212.03, hadn't really expected much from it after the 210 but its all-round better than the 210, better looking, quicker, better gunpower, better altitude, its gonna be a rare T9 keeper.

T10 looks very mediocre though & that tailgunner isn't even going to help much.

 

Ta 183 has been a big surprise, I'd be tempted to keep it if it weren't so godawfully ugly, basically a T9 Hunter but with better altitude.

 

I can see why ppl love the P.1101, its got decent speed, altitude & turn, high dps guns.

Very much 1092 but better.

It looks nice from the player 3rd person view but I really don't like the blunt snub nose, just a couple of degrees less blunt & it'd be an allround handsome plane.

 

I sold the He 112 after a couple of battles so I could free-up a Hangar slot for a more expensive plane.

Didn't really feel like worth Specialising anyway.

Don't bother with the 215.02 unless you're looking for a serious challenge. I've always loved the 212.03 but it's lack of handling puts it at a disadvantage to the 1092

To be fair, the 215.02 isn't completely irredeemable but its not an easy plane to fly. You're a one-plane meme machine. Guns are good - they're the same as the 1101 but with better burst length so your DPM is a lot better. Its got a buttload of HP so its fairly tough and its also surprisingly fast once fully equipped with Ultimate equipment thanks to its 20s boost length, allowing you to power across the battlefield in the same manner as a heavy fighter. And you have your rockets. The R4Ms can be used fairly effectively against both air and ground targets and your WGr21s are decently powerful as well. Taken together, you are a fairly good multirole being able to rapidly blow up light and medium targets and pick off slower moving, less nimble airplanes for a solo cap.

 

The problem is its performance is just awful. Turn time is bad and you're a massive target. Acceleration is multirole anemic without equipment and your tailgun is basically useless. It takes a lot of patience and planning to use properly and anything you can do, someone else can do better. If nothing else, you're a bigger, lower performing Hunter which trades the massive firepower of the quad ADENs for the meme of a massive cloud of rockets. Rockets that have been nerfed against the 215.02's primary prey - GAAs. You also have basically no damage resistance and your lumbering performance makes you vulnerable to even ADAs let alone bots or other humans if you don't plan your moves right.

 

So overall - its a plane that's been indirectly nerfed multiple times (it was collateral damage in the Explosive Damage nerf vs GAAs and the turret range nerf) and then basically replaced by a superior version of itself (the Hunter) and in this it is similar to the Fw252 - its a lesser version of its British counterpart. You can still have fun in it, just prepare to suffer if you face off against any competent opposition.

 

A very special note: the R4Ms that the 215.02 has are actually upgraded over all other R4Ms the rest of the German tree use and have something like 200m more maximum range so if anyone is dumb enough to try and charge you down face first, you can nuke him from almost 2km away.

 

And if you're REALLY crazy and outfit a Rocket Sight with maximum range upgrades, you can extend your rocket's range to just shy of 2.5km which, if you want to go full meme, means that with seasonal camo and fully upgraded RadNav gear for maximum stealth you can lob rockets at people from beyond visual range. You'll never hit them, of course, but its THEORETICALLY possible.
