Hello all !!

So I´m also waiting about GAT-invitation but have given up hopes to join that now. One thing what makes me wonder is this. Alpha testers get kinda "special" plane to their hangar if I´m right.
So is there any way to purchase that special plane afterwards then?
Reason why I ask this is that I was planning to gather all possible planes to hangar when gane is released and seems now that I will prolly miss plane or two at least.
As in WoT where I have bought gold to expand my garage so that I have all premiums now, and  slots to get all tanks which are now in game. I was planning to do same in WoWp too (yeah perfectionist and collector) :). Will take time and nice sum of gold to do this, but what a heck. So if I´m not GAT then...can I purchase those planes for example via gift shop later on ?

And all those lucky ones who are now in GAT, hope we will see in air later on :)

Looking at your username made me realize I have heard of lots of finnish players applying to alpha but havent heard of anyone getting in. Makes me think that choosen batches might be based on where you are from...

I think its the same thing like in WoT.
There the ALphatesters became an special unique Tank (PzKpfw V-IV Alpha ) with an extra Logo instead of Wehrmachtssymbol.
No other way to buy this.
The same tank with same stats and normal symbols was then only available in the medium preorder-package, not in the release-ingame-store.

Maybe this gives you hope.

Well PzV-IV is not that good tank, it's pretty mediocre, if not bad, at least this is what I've read on the forums. So the alpha plane won't be different.

Its way too early to think about rewards, but if the situation with WoT will be similar, then you will probably wont be able to get the same plane (even if the gift plane is just reskin). If anything the alpha testers (especially those who started in closed alpha) are using their time and efforts to test unfinished game with all the stuff that goes with it. So they may deserve that bit of "uniqueness"

However WG has been so kind not to make the gift vehicles too special to make others outraged. They just made them fairly different but not worth envy or dying for.

By the way Pz V-IV was fairly good in the beginning but it is quite unusable now. It still can be used for ramming arty though :)

I just find it really odd that if they have more applicants for Alpha then they could possibly need, why do they not shut down the Alpha signup, so those of us who have waited since day one at least have a chance of getting in..

I am waiting for at least 2 weeks now... but the thing I don't know is, that one of my friends had sign up for alpha later than i do and he has got the invitation since monday -.-
We have checked the answers to the questions and found out that we have choosen the same answers.
So he can play Alpha now and i couldn't. That sounds very senseless for me.

You sir make a very good question.

But as mentioned somewhere else in forums, I think part of the whole "join alpha test!" campaing is just hoaxy advertisement campaing.

Please don't open new topics about Alpha Test invitations because we already have central topic for that http://forum-eu.worl...nvitations-gat/
