Landmarks?  You mean ground targets?  That's a known intermittent bug.    Is it happening all the time for you?  That would be a change.

I'm getting the old 'some ground target markers don't show up on neutral sectors at the start of the battle' thing.

Dunno if it had been gone 2nd half of last year but seems about same as before I took a break.

My guess is that WG simply uploaded an earlier version of the game to finish the Christmas hangar and candy-road event. :facepalm:

Agree with Roland. I hope the error is fixed.

Looks like you're going to have to stop flying the Widow. Seems cursed.

So apparently it was too good because reduced the damage from tailgunners by 30%, and allowed for an easy farming of those bomber flights. I hope that at least it'll still fire on enemy bombers though, with the above mentioned effect working.

What?? They nerfed the P61 already? If this is true then I am glad I didnt grind for it.For me deciding not to get this plane yet seems to be a good decision. BUFF not nerf weegee!! 

Does anyone think weegee is thru NERFING the P61?

Once I feel it has gone through all the nerf whacks,I may think about getting it.

No, they haven't.

No player turrets fire on bomber flights.

At least this has been the case since shortly after 2.0 launch when I started playing, maybe in 1.x they did?

IIRC B-29C turrets do fire on bomber formations.

Are you sure it wasn't whiskey bottle hunting?

Only the newbs know that bombers didn't exist back in YE OLDE DAYS, when we were fresh-faced recruits and nary a bot to be found.

 IIRC B-29C turrets do fire on bomber formations.

 Then it would be the only turrets that do that I know of.

 Right, I didn't want to speak for something that was before I started.

normally defense turrets do not target bomber flights but you can manually target them.
Apparently once you do that your other turrets will also start shooting at them. 
Or at least that is what happens in my B-17G which has turrets a plenty. 

Not that i would recommend this. There are better things to do with your time than having your combined defensive dpm dispersed into a flying formation of sand bags. 
You would get more points, kills, and just be more useful overall by flying a low and slow figure 8 directly into the middle of that flying furball of light fighters that develops over a hotly contested central airfield with a repair station.  

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is on par with my WinRate. Hit or Miss.
