That's for tomorrow.

 

Does anyone know btw what these rockets are for? Call me stupid, I even think I've asked that before already... :hiding:

 

Sell them in the depot for silver. They are an utter waste of time otherwise. No idea why WG promote them as if they are any sort of incentive to play the game.

I never used any of those consumables ... yesterday I noticed I had >80 fireworks and sparklers, not a clue where they came from. Sold almost all.

I got some also, 100+ iirc.

Some of them are from 1.x.

 

I've got a sick & twisted idea to actually use some at some point later, perhaps/maybe.

I've always imagined the surprise on the face of an opponent when some rather innocent fireworks are unleashed, - and in that short moment of confusion I'll blap him/her/it right out of the sky.

...wishful thinking...

It's only the first part of our winter celebration. Please follow our updates in January for even more presents.

 

The first part of Winter Trials is not the only thing prepared for the holiday season. Festive Hangar, Holiday boxes and some other treats are on the way! :honoring:

 

In the interest bringing a smile through the depressing dark winter times, almost a year of Covid chaos and our nations current and impending lockdowns again across the EU, I would ask that you consider giving players a Christmas gift in the shape of a weeks premium time or something a bit uplifting please

 

I think we all need a little pick-me-up at this point. :honoring:

Oh come on now, there was lots of thought put into the Christmas ummm... advent calendar... is that what this is?

 

The best part was how the interest levels were as such that the missions are explained, in Russian lol. Da, Harashow, Spaceba!

TungstenHitman, GonerNL,

 

If after the update this issue persists, please try changing game language to any other available language, and then change it back to your native language. Game client should update localization files.

@blindfold ; it's still there ... only for one account, other two are fine. And only for 3 the "Festival tools" missions ...

 

Changed the game language to Deutsch and back to English (2 small downloads) and nothing changed.

The current 4 Winter Trials missions are in English now on the EU account.

 

I did another language change, but this time played a battle with the game in German (where the missions were shown correct in German) and then  switched back to English. So I don't know if the team fixed it or the language change did the trick this time.

Some clan buddies hooked me up with a cache clearing download thingy and now it's fine. It was only a small download and took literally two seconds to clear the cache but I don't know the finer details about it. It works, that's good enough for me.

These Christmas/New years missions have been nice btw. Nothing to complain about imho. I think what happened with some players is that after a large and heavily involving event like Crimson Dawn, anything less might have seemed anticlimactic but it's just a mindset and personally I was already set for some sort of "cool down" after such a large and heavily rewarding event.

 

Besides, these current missions have still been very generous, still got plenty of free crates with goodies inside and there's been discounts on various aircrafts, equipment and consumables across all 3 periods. Christmas/Newyears time, while a holiday for many, is still consumed with family and friends get togethers and so personally I was thankful that it wasn't overfilled with long grindy or heavy time consuming events or missions that I either wouldn't have had time to participate in or wouldn't have enjoyed because I would have been rushing through them asap like some sort of chore. Maybe some would want more missions or some would want even less but for me it's just about on the money. :)

The biggest problem with this, we get no gold compensation for the already owned premium planes and this makes me losing all my interest in any of these crates. Period

The Winter Trials do not seem to be applying the Gold discount for buying planes in game. I have gone to buy them through the tech tree and also through the depot and in both instances show full price and no discounts (as shown in the winter trials special mission). Has anyone else a similar issue or work around?
