Server Update (18.09.2019)


EC%20Airfield_f8a00014b82747a514d93a1136

  • For Nations aircraft of rank 7.7 and higher, possible battle scenarios of Axis against Axis or Allies against Allies in RB, have been replaced by scenarios of all against all. This will allow us to get statistics on the efficiency on the aircraft of top ranks for the possibility of adjusting new options and scenarios between rivals of different countries.
  • [Enduring Confrontation] Mission La Manche is now available for creating game sessions in SB mode. Try out new scenarios “Naval Convoy”, “Port Attack” and “Naval bombers” where you will need to destroy or protect AI controlled fleets and other interesting mission tasks. For more information see the Enduring Confrontation portion of the major update patchnotes (1.91).

The current provided changelog reflects the major changes within the game as part of this Update. Some updates, additions and fixes may not be listed in the provided notes. War Thunder is constantly improving and specific fixes may be implemented without the client being updated.

Open Simulator Battles from the drop down menu, select air Battles, You will see the tab titled room list, click it and the room list tab will change to "create session". Alternative you can just join one in progress.

[Enduring Confrontation] English Channel is now the mission for combined naval battles (ships and aircraft). In this mission only the allied team will receive additional respawns close to convoy.

 

I can't select/play ships, or is it planes only mode?

This is specifically for the SB EC (Air) played in the "LA Mache" operation (english channel map)  but its not the English channel EC in the 1.91 patch notes there are descriptions for "port attack" "naval convoys" and "Naval Bombers" in the 1.91 patch notes those  are new mission tasks in EC which apply to this. The portion you highlighted is for combined battles.
The above patch notes "you will need to destroy or protect AI controlled fleets " tell you the ships are all ai control (similar in regular EC all tank convoys etc are all AI), Basically this is a naval battle version of SB EC (but you cannot use ship in this one only air same with all other SB EC missions)

English channel was only added this patch though. It turns out, nobody really cared about the naval targets. during the session I just came out of, the bomber spammers all just went accross the channel to bomb airfields so nothing really changed other than the time to travel.

By the way can we get the old [Operation] Boloigne ser la mende (or whatever it was called) back? It was one of the best rank 6 missions available that a lot of people enjoyed. Now the only [operation] style missions we have of comparable size are Moscow (but it is very wide so chances of you finding enemies without a radar is probably once every 20 minutes) and [operation] and [alternate history] Spain, which quite frankly, doesn't use much of the actual map size. The [alernate history] version for some uses the EC standard airfield which is only 1.4km, unlike the longer operation version, but has a wider variety of targets to destroy and actually gives fighters a better chance of turning the tides of the game mode (since regular [operation] style missions do not have a ticket bleed for enemy deaths, meaning that ground attackers and bombers are the only choices towards the match victory results)

Honestly an all vs. all scenario is the worst possible game. It is currently normal at top tier air RB but it makes spading planes much harder. While previously, at lower ranks, you could use your planes strengh to get an edge in a battle against an opposing plane but with mixed teams you are basically fighting your own vehicle in but with the difference that the enemy is upgraded and you are not. So not only do you lack any advantage over your opponent you might be able to use but the enemy plane can do anything your plane can but even better cause he is upgraded.

You aren't rewarded for knowing the strenghts of your plane like for example, if you were flying a zero you know you are good at turnfighting and can use that even against stronger or faster enemies. Now imagine you are flying a stock zero and are forced to fly constantly against upgraded ones. Now you have 0 advantage.

That is exactly the reason why I tried fighter combat to spade my F100 and just use it as a bomber. I spawn rush a base bomb it and most of the cases die. That is no fun but fighting stock against spaded opponents, even on the same BR is simply frustrating.

Please don't make us wait years for this. This mixed mess in Air RB top tier is horrible.
