the 7 fighters one would be the only issue that I see, aside from some just plain (plane?) grindy ones.

It is still pretty grindy for a plane that does not seem that impressive (at least compared to its tech tree sibling). I am almost more looking forward to ripping a few more steel crates than that bird.

You have 30 days of guys grinding these missions and disrupting the flow of the game. :facepalm:

Granted they'll be grinding their missions and maybe also helping out to win the round, but don't count on it.

If they insist on putting out these types of Grinds, they need to come up with a better way of rewarding players that are doing their Daily for any... Field drops & Tokens.

Field drops & tokens are required, in this game to build & advance your set of planes.

Hanging a "Must Win " on these missions, during this grind is really going to be frustrating to their player base.

Maybe removing the " must win " or come up with a better system to reward players accomplishments,

If in fact this is going to be the new direction of selling to their player base " Certificates " in the Cash or Credit Store

Hey, don't get me wrong, some players, " do like this grind for a free plane," still other don't mind buying their way to a new Fighter plane.

Other players would just like to play the game and continue to build & modify their set of planes.

Being a Bomber & Gaa. pilot not really interested in some of those month-long grinds for a fighter plane,

Anyway.....here we go again.... might consider taking the month off...lol. :facepalm:

15 and 25 have 'must win' requirements. Which isn't really that bad even if you consider losing the first time you achieve it. The alternative is more grind. You have a chance to be done with the task in a few battles, if you are reasonably good.

Was referring to the " must win " in most of the Daily's.... for (1 - 4 - 10 tokens).

Also, all players ....." must win  in the battle to receive any Field Drops regardless of their score or performance in battle.

Aka. - You can score 20,000 points in battle and get absolutely   " 0 " credits towards any...... Field Drops or Tokens.

My point being: that during these events battles will go sideways and you'll find yourself alone trying to cap bases due to players chasing & grinding these month-long events.

Bottom line: you're going to grind till your Blind, buy some of the certificates to complete this event, or just really p#@$% off players trying to complete a "must win".

A lot of grind in 8, 11, 16, 18 & 22.

Best to have German T9/10 Bombers ready for this as they'll get you that Ground target damage quickest & also make the sections of ground targets missions a cinch.

Will also want a high-tier big damage dealer like Hunter for the damage to aerial targets.

 

14 shouldn't be too hard, it was 9 in previous events from recollection, still gonna need to get good RNGesus & go full in on it.


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

I think it is a bit early, or short-sighted, to make a subjective comment like that.  Even if you do succeed in finding numerical values for performance (gamemodels3d), those are just numbers, and tell you nothing about the Pilot (such as Charles Donovan, Millie Elliot), Modules, or skill of the human pilot behind the aircraft.  The value of the aircraft will be revealed in combat relative to other fighters.  Also, at the very least, it's another daily XP boost for Donovan and Elliot, which helps many other U.K. premiums.

That, in itself, is not reason enough to spend hours per day on the plane.

The other premium Spitfires at least have some sort of attraction to make them different from their tech tree mates - enough to make someone open up their wallet, or spend time on the grind.

As a premium plane collector myself, I find this about the least-compelling example of the premium Spitfire.  And, as a person who has every other U.K. premium - Millie and Donovan have PLENTY of training aircraft available.

I guess it is good for you that it is not compelling, that way you don't feel like you are missing out.  On the other hand, I think an opportunity for a free airplane (just by playing the game, as I was doing anyway) is a good deal.

 

As of yet there is no Spitfire premium for tier VII -- only the Meteor F.1 for U.K.  Tier VII otherwise does not have many premiums available relative to other tiers.  For fighters you have the 302, La-9RD, Yak-3RD, Meteor, P-51K.  In that context, Spitfire XVI is different enough.

 

Regarding Spitfire premiums being different from their stable mates, probably you are not speaking of the Spitfire Vb or Spitfire Vb IM, which are identical to each other (and arguably not that different from the Spitfire V). You are probably referring to the Spitfire DB.605 for Germany; however, all of these are Tier VI.  Only the Spitfire Ia at tier V could be considered exceptionally different -- but it is not the plane itself, but rather the pilot Charles Donovan that improves it.

Thank you Jelly, I have wanted WG to post the missions this way since they started these month long grind missions. I spent so much time looking this info up to make sure I was using the correct aircraft type and to ensure I was driving at the correct requirements to complete the medal or achievement.

Hopefully WG can post the next one in this format, thanks again Jelly.

The casual player "just playing the game" is not going to get this plane.  You actually have to dedicate some time to it.

No, it is not worth the grind to do it, either in time spent, or in money spent.  Yes, the Vb isn't too much different from the V.  But the V IM is quite different.  Not on the basis of performance, but for rarity and availability.  The Ia si very different from the I, and the V DB605 is really different from the V.

This plane isn't going to come to those who "just play".  This plane is going to take dedicated time and effort.  In the end, wait for this plane to come to the premium shop, or let it drop in a crate.  Don't spend the next month grinding a plane that is not that great in T7, in a tier where you face T8 planes more often than not.  It goes then from a role-player to an inconsequential plane to the overall battle, having to go up against Vampires and other T8 planes that outclass it in every performance category.

There is wisdom in your words for all WOWP players to hear. However, in this quest, there are some nice trinkets for which I would sell the territory of Oklahoma.

 

So, progressing along this Candyland map of missions might result in some nice things (TOKENS!!!). While I may not receive another Spit, I will at least get to the Token part.

 

*Disclaimer* I do not buy crypto, but I do hoard Tokens. They are my crypto.
