So, we had this nice little xmas gift from WG, called Champion's Reward, thanks. And here comes the BUT, do not tell me, out of 44 UNIQUE supply crates, i got zero, i repeat ZERO premium aircraft. Ok i got them all in my hangar before, but does it mean you dont have the chance to get aircraft from those boxes?? I mean the aircraft drop is turned off if you have them?? Quite dirty if you ask me...

Hahaha.

 

"Why does that impossible event have a probability of zero ?!"

 

 

Also, 44 completions, wow, and here I was thinking I had been no-lifing with 31, as I have been pinned at home alone with what I thought was a sprained ankle but now suspect might be tendinitis (or porque no le dos?). Also, in those 33 crates I didn't get the last plane of the obtainable planes list, the tier 3 Soviet (well, us-made…) GAA thingie. You know, that thing which name must go something like "lbsshlbh-1"

Only 12 for me as I couldnt get on much christmas day and boxing day. Praise be for WG's incompetence though :) no premium ac but some premium days, about 1.5k gold, 50k free xp or more and the usual selection of nonsense dropped for me.

I now have over 28mil credits worth of unused equipment and 9mil of consumables to add to my 45mil banked credits, should i need to go on a spending spree anytime soon.

Could very well be ... as far as I remember blindold or eekeeboo once told that if there's a plane you already have, there is a re-reroll for another. But when you already have all premiums, I guess there is no plane re-roll, you just get something else.

I have abused the EF 131, and with around 20k score in every battle, the 44 completion was "only" circa 120 matches.

Well if you are right Goner (and i think you are because of the zero drop from 44) this is a cheap trick from the company. The unique supply crate is cr*p for ppl like me, who has all the available planes.

Well, I just missing the soviet T7 and I don't get it, too. But are the crates crap? No, I get gold and premium time and other usefull stuff. For me they are really cool. Thx a lot for the crates :great:

 

But for thankless people like you, they may be crap :facepalm:

Once I realised _I *really* don't know why I clicked the mission tab before quiting this day, call that divine inspiration _  that the mission as uploaded was missing a somewhat crucial parameter, which was during the afternoon of the 24, I considered spamming the ef131, as a plane capable of either pulling big scores in contested game, or quick 12kpp rolfstomps, and finally decided against it.

Instead, I payed the X2s for various planes, those that needed be specced or even elited, plus premium planes  to train up future high tier pilots.

At some point I realised I could also, if I, say, was sitting at 47k pp, a 16kpp game was something of a waste, and that I could just quit at 3k and then try and do a big game with another plane, to have a good start for the next completion. I also decided against doing it, because, well, that's just not how I roll 

 

 

Also, I just realised that I totally missed the paint jobs discount, which was something on which I could have spent some of that unexpected 3.5k gold windfall

 Yeah, I mean, I'll still call the standard crates "substandard crates", but after almost a hundred, well, let's say that if there's an event with a contest for bombing stuff, I have the explosives to do that. And I don't think I'll have to buy equipment anytime soon.

You cannot receive planes that you already own from Unique Crates.
