I find the Precision bombers quite overpowered maybe im missing something but defence should be cheaper than attacking.

I was reading some war reports so i don't know about upgrade quality of the players involved but i saw a report where 210AA killed only 22 precision bomber before being destroyed. Maybe im wrong but these are the only weapons beside interceptor who can kill bomber, so why are the bomber pwning the AA that much , if they are the only counter.

It has been bugging me for a while but i have little hopes for a change because for the attacker , it is quite cool , i wont lie, i use bomber too, but someone who put 1000 + defence weapons in a garisson would like to see more than 22 plane killed .....

Please add your opinion on the subject.

Thanks , Jee~LU

AA are worth about 20mil bombers 264 mil
so they both come out to be about the same dollar value using current prices
the bomber loss is higher value

AAMB are not the only counter.
First counter: Interceptors.

My exemple is more towards these issue:

The imbalance between ground force attacking and air force attacking.

The defense works great against ground force attacking but is mediocre against air force. ( read bombers)

Maybe if they limit the number of bomber to 400 in a unit it may become more balanced.

Might as well remove all other defense, I mean , who was ever saved by armored vehicules ?

(forgive my bad English as it is my third language)

Im just putting suggestions to get some output on how the community feels about this issue, and if i am the only one whom it bothers.

I'd agree with you Jee if what you saw was consistent wars in which the aggressors effectively used bombers to completely drown out the defense of the opponent but first, there aren't that many wars, second, it's actually quite difficult to win a war against opponents with knowledge about garrisons/air d and third, interceptors are already an extremely effective and line of first defense before AAB and fourth, if you really think it's a vulnerability you can load up your garrisons with AAB, I run 1000 aab/400 mib/ 600 dmb generally.

lol...that's true, glad I could help. I know there has been a lot of talk about this topic in the past and I've tried to rethink it from other perspectives but I still ultimately come to the same conclusion. Bombers are great, don't get me wrong and if any weapon does have a slightly unfair advantage then that would be it, but I honestly think it's because the rest of the offensive weapons are too weak, not that bombers are too strong. Having been in enough wars with experienced players and big feds I know pretty well just how difficult it is to win a war which is why so many shy away from the war side of the game...anyway, sorry for rambling.
