Was in a battle earlier w/a Midway that got 60 plane kills & didn't receive Clear Skies...

I know there's more than 120 planes on a Midway but shouldn't there be a set number that you just get it? How is it not a Heroic Achievement when you need to shoot down more than 60 planes (at times) to achieve it?

There is a set number and it changes each battle. No. He didn't get enough kills for clear skies.

All possible floatplanes also count toward the requirement.

And some BBs carry more than they can ever get in the air in one game.

Montana for example gets 8 or more may only launch 3 at most

The achievement should be tweaked. For shooting down 60 aircraft at tier ten, that CV definitely deserved a reward.

yeah it used to be that way where if you shoot down a certain amount of planes didn't matter what kind you would get a clear sky nowadays you have to kill a lot of spotters and float planes sadly Ive gotten 90 planes shot down in my Saipan and didn't get one either I hope they do make some changes to it for sure

Patience! They're reworking the achievement right now, so it should get more meaningful as we go on.

It is a simple Honorable achievement and the requirements are so high that you have a better chance getting Kraken plus High Caliber plus Confederate in a single match.

yeah it was way to easy at first think I used to get a clear sky at least ever 2nd 3rd game long ago then they changed it to how it is now and I honestly never know if Im close or what when you get over 50+ planes

I can attest to that...have gotten that trifecta a couple of times & in over 10k random battles have never gotten Clear Skies (although my most plane kills is only 27 so not like I've even earned the bare minimum).

I guess I always get the CVs that know what ships to avoid (or learns after the 1st wave mistake) when I'm in an AA heavy ship...& I've only Co-Oped CVs (w/just a few T5 randoms to finish off all tasks in "Science" campaign).
