My planes and bombers are getting shredded by weak defenses. I’ve had to retrain 4 bombers today, and normally I have to go that like once a week, maybe. Anyone else seeing this? I have space age bombers but they are getting destroyed way too quick
My fighters (Strike Fighter Mk6) are similarly getting shredded. Damage doesn't seem to be increased at all and they feel like they have less HP. I know how many fighters I need to send at a tower to destroy it (usually 4 or 5 for most towers i'm attacking)... so with double damage I should be able to do it with 2 or 3 right? Well, nope... they still take 4-5 fighter strafes to destroy them.
According to the event description, it should be even: 2x damage, 2x health and 2x attack speed both on the towers and on the planes.
But in reality probably planes die faster, because towers will start shooting planes few seconds before the planes reach to shoot the towers... and at 4x DPS (double damage, double speed), they will die pretty quickly. Basically they die at 2x speed (4x DPS of tower vs 2x HP of plane)
People are just looking at the stats but the rate of fire from the towers and aa very much overpower the planes. The planes may be stronger but they still have to fly around to make another pass and while they are doing that, the stationary towers and aa are shooting them down at 2x speed with 2x damage which gives them the advantage. War has been interesting because players are using all HT on my base because of event but for the first time in a while I’ve actually lasted 5 attacks by CWA players with 3 off coals so far with 3 stars at best. I wish I added Egyptian and it would’ve been less.
Sabotage is a way to overcome the weakness in fighters versus towers and air defenses. I just five-starred a level 254 Cold War base using six heavy tank mk4's, seven strike fighter mk6's, General Nobunaga and some clean-up troops. I brought seven sabotages and used seven sabotages. It's a very strange event.
