Shooting down planes

Shooting down an enemy plane does not count as damage inflicted.  But it does increase your score.  Does anyone know how many extra points we get for each plane shot down.  I noticed I had a coop game where I shot down 40+ planes, damage inflicted was moderate, but I got a high score.

LOL, not enough?  I don't know the answer to your question, but I wish planes were either worth more, or counted as part of the damage total.

I believe the score received is exponential, since shooting down one or two planes does not make much of a difference, but beyond 15 or more it greatly increases your score.

If I recall correctly from some old post about this issue; it's actually a pretty miniscule award; but if you shoot down LOTS of planes, (and 40+ would be a lot,) then there's some multiplicative effect that starts making them worth a lot?

 

Like the OP; I've had CV battles where my total damage sucked wind; but I basically wiped out the enemy CVs airgroup, and wound up decently high on the score board.

I think the more we can shoot down it becomes exponential.  I found out in coop when I am grinding that if I set up air supremacy I can get a good score.  But in random AS gets me killed. 

Does WG keep scoring a secret?

I do play AS ramdom, I found that with about 30 air kills I can get around 100,000silver and 1000xp with my t6 independent

I've heard around 30 plane kills is equal do killing a ship in regards to xp and credits earned.

Given the damage they can do, i dont think WOWs gives us enough points for each plane shot down.  Just my opinion.

I can concure...

 

Threshold seems to be 10 planes gives you a decent boost in score, 15 even more so, 20+ it gets boosted by a large amount. 

Rightfully so... its rather hard these days using the air patrols :p
