Berlin (Ground Strike)

14 posts in this topic

I saw this was introduced, but is it already active in game - that is, is it in the queue yet - or coming out at the same time as the premium special on Sunday?

That map exists for at least 2 months already, it just wasn't chosen to be played. Well, I think it will be introduced the same time everyone gets the Premium.

 

So you can already test it in custom battles

What type of ground targets are there? I'm a bit excited for this match because it sounds like its going to be a map for strategic bombers.

If it is anything like the map available in custom battles, it will be full of the same old ground targets :(

Is it just me or do the ground targets not scale up for this map?  It always seems to be the exact same.

Just played this map in Arcade. It has a large amount of spread out artillery, AAA and heavy tanks.

 

Didn't notice any pillboxes, so battles will be fairly fast on this map.

It's a terrible map.  Static targets are all soft AAA/artillery and the only hard targets are heavy tanks. Fighter-bombers/attackers go straight for the tanks and by the time you reach the ground units in a heavy bomber there's only a few artillery left which are worthless.  If you're going to play a heavy bomber on this map you should just rush their base since it's quite close.

indeed, heavy bombers seem to have a large disadvantage in this map. In paralllel it is attacker´s heaven...

On the other hand the luck of heavy targets (i.e. pillboxes) make the battle not lasting up to the last minute and it is good to make fast credits.

As it is now I would add 2-3 pillboxes in the AA series (which strangely lack a pillbox, even the light version) just to make the map a bit more fair for heavy bombers.

Else heavy bomber can really benefit from airbase attacks.

Every side rushs the super soft ground targets ... after 5 min ... game over ... boring

this map is a huge income booster if you have the Tu-2, or the german captured willington. there is no pillbox, and your 100kg bombs can one shot heavy tanks.

Planes with 50 kg bombs do well too; 2 of those bombs will kill a heavy tank, and only one is needed for artillery and AAA.

 

A Ju-88 or He-111 with 32x 50 kg bombs can kill a LOT of targets before they need to reload.
