My favorite American multirole is the F6F-5 Hellcat.  How can I "Complete missions on your favorite American multirole fighters "  in that?  What about the F4F Wildcat or the F-94D Starfire?

Why are they called multi-roles anyway ?

 

I mean 1 roll and boom you're shot out of the sky, shouldn't they be called one-roles

Same here.  The F2G is probably going to be my first tech tree Tier 8.  Would love a chance to buy it for a discount.  Guess I'll just be doing the repeatable mission this weekend :)

The Corsair line doesn't count because Heavy Fighters aren't part of the mission. :B

Thuds gettin some love :amazed:


*looks at the requirements* 

Blindfold. Can we talk?  Lets talk, you and I.

Your people are getting out of hand here. Dont get it twisted. I LOVE what y'all are doing with the place .
And sure enough, I get that the Republic Line is next in the "grind this line for cheap" rotation. 

But what is with all this "shooting planes" stuff in the requirements?  

This whole line was best defined as the closest thing to a ground attack branch of the American tree from its release.
And that really hasnt changed even with the introduction of the American Bombers, either. 

How many other MultiRoles have a higher Ordnance rating than their Gun rating in the hanger UI? 
I cant think of any either. 
Yet i can leave the bombs/rockets in the hanger all weekend and still win every reward in this offer flying the Republic line.


 

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is on par with my WinRate. Hit or Miss.
 I start on the right track and then sometimes make a weird left turn and get lost in the weeds ...

I agree Coyote,

 

This event for me is garbage. Why? It's because no one is even bothering to play the line. Instead, they are all gearing up to shoot anyone down who is dumb enough to try to play them. This line needs reworked. It's bad form to have an event for what many say is the worst line in the entire game. All you are going to do is frustrate newbs into playing garbage planes for the entire weekend. Was that your goal? Because you succeeded in that goal. 

 

Re-balance this garbage and THEN have a grind event for it. Right now it's a sad joke that you even used this line to highlight.

Hard to argue with that.  While I got the German MRF to T9 first, then the Brits, I kinda fell in live with the Republic line with the XP-72.  With Mary at the stick, these planes just eat GTs up.  And they have enough MG throw weight to reliably take on lower-flying bombers, and for sure GAA.

 

While it would be great if the Corsair line got some love, maybe they are doing this in rotation?  

 

Yes, WG, please start including GTs in your MRF everything, including specialization.  Points for shooting enemy planes, and points for killing GTs in already-captured zones.  You know, to encourage MRF to attack...

I had kind of stalled out in this line with the xp-72 but I love the thuds.  T6 is one of my favorites.  great ordnance load, Ma deuce x 8, and boy is she fast.  Especially with Mary.  24 seconds of boost, I can keep up with or outrun just about everything.  If you are having issues being productive in this line, you're probably doing it wrong.  I just picked up theT9 today and already had a few modules researched from other lines.  Honestly I've never really paid too much attention to them while in game because there's not a lot of people playing them effectively.  Please continue to ignore me in mine when you see me, it's helped a ton.

If the lack of players flying multi-roles is any indication, there is a distinct lack of interest in this event.

yep and yep      that tracks perfectly      it just needs... something?        give me one 37mm?      i'll even take a 20mm

 

it's like the AAC went to Costco and bought a trainload of 50cals, then doubled down ever harder       

 

but i've been stubborn about stuff, too      refused to reconsider my choices      i've been there

 Yeah, I was pretty excited to see the missions split into Periods on the same line like this, bought back the P-43, geared it up a bit & hopped into a battle.

Then as I'm loading in: 'uh what am I supposed to do?' -> Alt - tab -> looks at event on website -> ... -> ... -> wth.

 

C'mon WG, Enemy kills on Attack, Capture points for Aerial targets & damage to Aerial targets with P-47 line? :facepalm:

 

Whats next: 30* Armored targets with a P-40? :child:

 

Edit: To be clear I do actually run most of this line built for Air to Air, mostly without ordnance, the Period 2/3 ones are Aerial targets, Capture points can be for defense & damage doesn't matter where you do it.

Its really the Enemy targets on attack thats particularly painful while flying a plane thats not very agile & only gets a Cockpit slot unspecialised.
