Thanks!

 

Time to finally purchase the Mosquito then.

 

25 destroyed German/British aircraft shouldn't be too hard to accomplish.

Event for all tiers?  (I see no caveat "IV-X only")

stats were invented by Satan himself to suck the carefree fun out of gaming

I already have all the discounted planes.

 

Guess the equipment is always nice to have (even though I haven't mounted cockpit armour on a single plane), and I'll hapilly open any crate thrown my way. I have both german and british pilots and gunners under training, so those X3 will fil nicely into both missions (especially if there's not tier condition) Ditto with daily missions : all my tier VIII+ planes are british or german anyway…

 

All in all, an event that shouldn't overly interfere with the start of the World Cup.

Discounts on planes and supply crates as rewards? Huh???  :amazed:

 

Alright, finally something we haven't had for a while! :great:

Overal nice little event :playing:

BUT any idea why Bf-109E and 110E is not discounted as well? it's Battle of britain dammit! Hornisse was introduced long after this was over.

I can undestand why Hurricanes are not discounted (tier IV, they cost nothing, to start with)

Maybe it's just an omission in article and even messers are discounted?

I'm a little annoyed. When I fly a UK plane, I have maximum 2 German enemy planes, and when I fly a German one, it's just the other way round. I hope I'm I the only one with that problem and this is not "working as intended".

 

Throughout the whole weekend I can play only tonight, and having finished one of the two missions, I'm gonna give the other one up for now. Too bad, I love supply crates :(

I think that’s just bad luck - I’ve only played one game as a Brit (at Tier 5) and got 6 German opponents (and killed 7 of them :hiding:)

At least, I hope my experience is more common than yours - or maybe it’s just sucking me in!

Did it, the hardest part was finding an enemy to kill, plenty of Germans when I was playing the Brits, harder to find Brits to kill.


For the prizes, those crates really aren't that generous, in the first I got 80 Airframe Element (to add to the 2K or so I already have) and 100 gold (ok), the other just an improved collimator sight.  Pretty sure the contents have been better previously, but it was for free.

Pretty sure a sample size of 2 is ridiculously inadequate to even start considering saying that it might be the case.

Have had plenty in the past, and the contents were better then, guess you never played and got them previously?

I guess you didn't read what I wrote?

 

 

Got my 2 crates, 1 of them contained my hangar slot #100, which is cool.

Nope, and not bothered.

 

For the effort the crate didn;'g give much, esp vs other WG titles, playing WoWS, they are chucking freebies at you,and even WoT gives alot away every few battles you play, for the time taken in WoWP, the reward vs them is poor, and for the crates, pretty sure you always previously got at least 2 items, I did in one crate, and a singel item in the other.

Same here ... it took ages to finish both missions. Sometimes had 2 battles in a row without the right planes on the other team.

UK vs German was quite fast - the other way around though is a long walk. Best bet is around tier 5 and 6, and hope for Spitfire crowd to show up.

You have reached your quota of positive votes for the day

It's six of one and half a dozen of the other though, I reckon. The grind in the other titles is painful when you get to tier 5 (in fact this morning on WOWS I played my first ever tier 5 game with a stock BB and was up against tier 7 players, BRUTAL!) despite the generosity shown in the way of 'extras'. WOWP you could probably complete a whole line in a weekend of decent playtime.

 

Not to mention historically WOWP has absolutely pissed rewards, hanger spaces, gold, premium time etc at players, it's only been the last 12 months or so that they've gotten a little stingy in comparison.

Didn't have much time for this event, due to 12h nightshifts the whole weekend, but I managed a few battles, mostly to get the weekly crate. Didn't  see a lot of UK planes when flying Germans, and the same lack of Germanswhen flying UK planes. At least I got some extra XP and pilot XP for the few battles played, and I tried the Mosquito, which didn't seem that horrible, in contrast to what I've read about it.

What seemed on paper like a piece of cake was slightly frustrating. Kinda like fishing, when your dinner depends on it.  I honestly expected server full of spitfires, so I started as german and my Fw-190A-5 had trouble to find some spit.  Then I expected every spit in battle to be attracted to shooting me down, but no, they loitered always on the other side of map. Mostly it seems people just ignored the missions.

 

rewards ... meh, in one crate I got two ultimate cockpit armours, in the other bulbs and lightway airframe and some fire extinguishers  so not too horrible, but nothing to write home about

Got a hanger space along with the usual stocking filler rubbish, decent enough result as I only had one left empty.
