I haven't played this game since last year. I am just curious.

They are running an experiment of a kind, testing the "right prices" or something. So you'll notice the store is almost empty, a majority of planes is not there whole August, and those in store have reduced prices... at least some of them.

 

We'll see what will come out of it.

They generally cost around 12500 gold. But there are discounts. And there is a way to get them for free.

The cheapest T8 premium plane is La -11 for 34,14€! How I love those random sales, I never get them :(

The La-11 is €17,06 for me.

That's because prices differ per player, blindfold said ... mine are also <€20 on EU. But on the NA site the same T8 planes are almost €30 !!

And on the CIS server I only see 2 planes, other servers I get 17 planes.

That's the 'normal' price for a tier VIII.

Assuming that prices are about the same on all servers. On the Asia shop I still get the normal list of 52 planes with normal prices, so no experiment/research there, it seems.

 

Someone suggested that prices were different for accounts that had a certain (high) amount of battles or were in use for a long time, but I get the same prices on my 2nd EU account, which is newer and less used.

It is interesting that while I was not logged in, only one plane was shown in the store. After login, all the planes, usually available, were shown.

I usually hate being normal, I do now more than ever.

For me it's €34.14 just like Spartan_93 above, I'm in Ireland, so I'm just wondering what country does WG think it can milk for €42.67!:amazed:

Edit:- Could it be a VAT thing? Where some countries rate VAT on digital products differently?

France.

But our VAT is 20%

that would mean yours is 0, and Goner's country paying WG for each sales :p

I didn't like it at all, played it a few times, it's been sitting in the hangar for months. Lacks firepower, manouverability and speed.

It's easily worth €50, not sure why anyone's moaning on here tbh, wonderful bit of kit and one of my favourites.

 

 

(In reality, its underpowered at tier 8, guns overheat too quickly and cool too slowly to be effective against anything heavy, turns quite well but the Japs and Spits are better. Was being honest about it being a favourite of mine though, I imagine I'm in a minority of one but I find it weirdly fun!)

Took the La-11 out for a spin again, it was just as disappointing as I remembered. overheating guns, bad altitude performance, slow, not as bad turning as I remembered. Not a flying turd, but nothing I will play again soon.

La-11 used to be very good till 1.9 as it had unmatched manoeuvrability then. Now (2.1.0.3) it is mediocre plane with mediocre guns. Not recommended.

Earned over 400k silver in one battle in it last night.

Had premium time and a 100% credit booster active to be honest :D but still a nice little earner in the right hands
