"[Winter Games] Hockey". Event

5 players participate for each team in aircraft of 3rd to 5th ranks. The Ar.234B-2 is positioned in the middle of the map representing a “puck”. When you shoot at it you turn it towards the enemy gates (a ring in the sky). As soon as Arado flies through the ring - the team will receive one point and “the puck” reappears again in the middle of the map. There are unlimited respawns in this arcade event. The Match will allow 5 points to win.

Teams will be playing with “hockey rules” - do not hesitate to shoot at the enemy players!

“Battle between the sky and the Earth” Event

In this event, teams are split between attackers and defenders. The task of the attacking aircraft team is to destroy tanks that are positioned inside the city and then anti-air units as well.

The task of defending anti-aircraft vehicles is to stop it from happening and hold the city position. Tickets for the attacker team will reduce up to the point when all the city tank vehicles have been destroyed. If aviation succeed in their task, the ticket bleed stops and the task will switch to destroying the remaining anti-air vehicles.
