Hmmm... featuring an american aircraft without a soviet counterpart also being featured?

I must be missing something, because that would go against WG's bias.

It would be a welcome change if it were true.

 

In the 1960s, there was a DC comic book series following the exploits of a new squadron (somewhat like the Sgt Rock comic books). 

They flew this aircraft with a slight change... 4 cannon instead of 2.

I guess this aircraft was used because its appearance was distinctive and easy to discern in 'busy' comic panels by readers

I don't remember what the comic book was called.

It didn't last 2 years.

 


Are you talking about the Blackhawk comics?
Indeed they were flying a 4 cannon plane that looks like the XF-5F

I advise you to have a look at the Bristol 153a (1937 design).
In my opinion, that's the blackhawk plane

Wylle, hope your not suggesting lack of balance between vehicles, because WoWP assures us there is balance. (lol)

 

I do not think you understand  or your understanding of balance is not the same as.

Wargaming, some players like me for example and god knows who else.

 

We do not want a game that comes off of a scale where everyone is equal or the toons are equal

Leave the balance and equality to that sweet half undressed blindfolded lady holding the scales of justice.

 

Even in real life war there was " imbalance " .

That is what makes this game uniquely fun for unique individuals.

 

Far too many youngsters have grown up with house rules, cookie cutter adversaries and

participation games.

 

Balance ?....what the ....give everyone a tail gunner and call it gud

How do you NOT participate in this event?  I want to play just plain old vanilla WoWP . . . but I can't see any place to opt out.

Fly a bomber.  Embrace the suck (but collect many points and awards).   Also collect many losses tho, so if that is important to you, maybe not.

During the first stage event I managed to complete the missions for the ground attack and fighters.

I completed the final multirole mission, 2nd rank during battle, but got to the hangar and nothing...my match ended after 2300. What a load of [edited].:izmena:

A match starting before the cutoff counts in most games, but not this one apparently.

Besides that [edited], this event has been fun and the rewards seem fair. It is very easy to get the first mission of each aircraft type done, which gets you 500 gold. I even lucked out and got the blueprints for the new F5F heavy fighter. 

What did the global missions finish at? Last I saw it was at 77%.

Never ever presume to know what some one else thinks. That will get you into trouble and next thing you KNOW, your being divorced for the 5th time (yes, I remember your personal attack on my character years ago).

 

Imagine a chess board. Not all pieces have equal weight, but the two players have the same amount of inequality built into their game so it is BALANCED. A Soccer match has players of unequal skill, but the number of players and the amount of equipment is equal, so it is BALANCED. Balance does not equal equality and vice versa.

 

I gave up on egalitarianism a long long time ago. There is equal opportunity if we all have access to the SAME THING, then there is BALANCE. But as the old saying goes, never bring a knife to a gun fight. 

If you have a particular knife and I have the same, then it is down to SKILL, which is what Wg has tried to eliminate - mostly because frustration (SKINNER'S BOX) leads to increase in play and therefore  AN INCREASED chance of increased earnings- PROFIT. But I have explained all this before in MATCH MAKER.

 

Hopefully that clears up your thinking of my thinking.

  I'm going to skip this weird bomber event.  I have no idea what's going on most of the time and in 3 battles I was unable to make any progress on any of the mission objectives which looks like they expire in a day anyway.  It's just wasting my time.  Each phase needs to run for at least a couple weeks if not more for most of us to have any chance of finishing these missions.

It's actually quite fun, especially since it's such a change from Conquest.  Give it a fair shake and you might be glad you did.

There isn't enough time to complete the missions for it.  For the mission I was on I'm supposed to get 80 fighter kills in a fighter in phase 1 to complete the current stage, and in 2 battles I ended up with just 5. 

 

edit: I guess it's running 24 hours instead of only half the day as I had thought.  As a result, I was able to continue after server reset and get the 80 kills and at least complete that one mission.

Current mode is Bomber Escort. 

What are the features of the next three modes - Attrition, Conquest and Invasion?

This event is unplayable in the daytime with so many players flying sealclubber planes.  I lost 10000 credits in my last battle, and spent most of the time flying from the respawn point to where I just get shot down by a Spitfire/Vampire again.  :(  At night there were only a handful of players so we could avoid shooting each other and everyone got to farm properly.

I don't know but I have never bombed my way to so many (15 at last count) Hero of the Sky awards in such a short time before.  Unfortunately most of them came with a loss.  The Strategic Bombers, and my bomber, seem to be made of paper mache.

Current mode is Bomber Escort. 

What are the features of the next three modes - Attrition, Conquest and Invasion?

 

Next stage mode is Invasion. It's another one asymmetrical game mode, where players will be devided into two teams: Attackers and Defenders. One team will attack the positions held by the rival team in an attempt to capture them. At the beginning of the battle, all the territories on the battlefield are controlled by the defending team, and the attackers have limited time to recapture them. They will have 4 minutes to capture the first one, gaining additional time for every subsequent territory up to a maximum of 12 minutes of battle duration.

 

Both teams will have a limited supply of reserve aircraft (respawns), with the defending team having fewer of them. The defending team will have AA guns and defenders at their side though, which will help them fend off the assault, while the airbases will keep their machines in flying condition.

The win conditions are simple: the attacking team needs to capture all the territories in the given time or destroy all the enemy team aircraft, including the reserve ones. The defending team needs to save their warplanes, manage to keep at least one territory under their control or destroy the attacking team completely. A draw is possible only in the case that the last aircraft from both teams simultaneously destroy each other.

 

Conquest is our standard game mode with the same rules.

 

In Attrition mode, you will need too deplete the enemy’s Resources. Every enemy aircraft you destroy means a loss of 1 Resource. A team that depletes the enemy Resources first wins. Each team can capture territories and thus increase the “value” of every enemy aircraft and improve their team’s chances of victory. Once a team controls 2 territories, every enemy aircraft costs 2 Resources, 3 territories — 3 Resources, and so on. Controlling only 1 territory does not give any advantage. Both teams start the battle with an equal amount of Resources that depend on the number of territories on the map.

 

In order to win, a team needs to deplete the enemy team’s Resources and completely destroy all their aircraft. In case neither team manages to do that within 12 minutes of battle, the team that has more remaining Resources will be declared the winner. Only if both teams in this situation have an equal amount of Resources will there be a draw.

I'm not sure what you're talking about.  I flew the junk I usually dislike flying and did quite well with them.
