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.

 

Solution :

 Fly the seal clubber planes or a different tier.

I fly tier 9 and 10 for the event

 I flew the planes that I needed the XP boost for.  It was only my second battle in the La 9 when I really got peeved about it.  At night most of the players weren't trying to shoot each other since bots were everywhere, and we all got a chance at enjoying the bot farming festival.

i'll bet that Invasion got some much-needed tweaks while it sat on the shelf over the last two? years...     it always felt the least balanced of the four modes, to me anyway

 

Attrition was fun, but only if you're in the lead...  it quickly snowballs downhill if you're behind       just like 1.x did

 

Conquest has always seemed "balanced" for all classes       always a challenge if you're not a superpilot

 

i'll guess that we'll never see any actually new modes        probably not

Then do not call the event unplayable because you choose to shoot yourself in the foot.

Your choice, your responsibility.

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change the courage to change the things i can and the WISDOM to know the difference.

Flying an La 9 is "shoot yourself in the foot"?  This is a Vampires Only mode?

Hardly.  I did well flying crap like my Ki-88 and Mosquito 26.  The Mustang I was my favorite to fly, but I reached for things that I needed kills on to specialize that I ordinarily don't get many kills flying.

Do we have to wait until the end of the current Stage to get the bonus crates?

Edit-Stage 2 Phase 1 is now closed and I have not received the bonus crates. What am I missing here?

Edit2-got my crates at the start of the 2nd phase. Hopefully this doesn't mean we have to wait until the start of the stage 3 to get crates from stage 2 phase 2.

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.



It would have been useful to post mission changes for this event, eg, flying paladin criteria, needed for the blueprint mission.    I hope they are posted prior to the next round of games.

This weekend was a bit of a horror for me.

I've been mainly making sure I get all the 100 Gold missions done each cycle, easy just play 1-3 battles per aircraft type.

The first Multi Role mission easy peasy 5000dmg to aerial targets another 1-2 battles in a high tier MR.

 

But then I tried to do the Light fighter one & misery ensued.

At first I didn't notice the Enemy Kills need to be in Defense so I was several battles in of wondering why I was making such poor progress before I realised :facepalm:

 

And then the misery really started: team after team with multiple enemy Specialist players in planes that are Kryptonite to the ones I'm flying and team-members incapable of capping.

Whenever I capped a point I could normally expect a nice bot stream on & started to settle down to some nice defense kills the enemy bots would magically refuse to enter the cap point until with shockingly precise timing I'd get 3-4 of them simultaneously converge on me with the most dangerous Player also arriving as I'm busy dodging -> me dead & cap lost before I can respawn :angry:

Absolutely maddening.


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

the Heavy Fighter mission also required kills on Defense, I didn't manage a single crate this weekend despite putting several hours into it, wasn't even half way thru the progress bar.   Would have been better use of time to just put two games per plane type and get the gold.  :(

 

add in the wonky servers, and it wasn't a fun time.  :facepalm:
