One shy question - are the missions for the marathon (aka rewards) still available upon buying one of these pilots in the shop?

(Of course I cannot get the pilots twice, understood).

Yep, you can still do the mission.

Just got the Japanese ace and mission is still available. Not a clue what happens if/when you complete it ...

 

Oh btw ; there is a slight delay. The pilot only appears it seems after playing a battle ...  :unsure:

For anyone who may not follow the WoWP team's intent here, basically for the equivalent price of the gold in the bundles you get some supplies and a "battle mission" for a pilot (or pilots if you buy the big bundle).  The "battle mission" is to play one battle and when you do the pilot or pilots should appear in your barracks, as GonerNL says.  The marathon missions are still available, so you can get the rewards for each stage you complete.  One assumes if you complete a set of missions for a pilot you will not receive the main reward since, unless the WoWP team has made a mistake, you can't be rewarded with a pilot you have already.

WG, please take note: when you say Aces High Bundle, it does not say "Both pilots".  Only stipulated gold, battle missions and unique supplies.

 

Is it a simple PR blunder? (sure it is, but please confirm)

On the German website it tells "one battle mission for each pilot" .... should be fine, shoudn't it?

Missions are listed directly beneath - play one battle to get the pilots ...

The problem is that there were no notifications at all, after buying the bundle.

So how should I know what the missions were ?? There even are 2 .. second one (boosters?) also completed unknowingly ??

 

BUNDLE CONTENT
5,000 GOLDBONUS 
2×PERSONAL BATTLE MISSIONS

 

DETAILS
This bundle includes 5,000 gold that will make fighting on your favorite aircraft even more enjoyable! In addition, you will receive a personal mission completing which you will get an exclusive Japanese pilot trained for the Mitsubishi A6M5 Zero fighter! You will also receive boosters for Crew XP! Missions can be completed from the moment of bundle purchase till March 1, 2022.

After all these years with WG, one learns that "goes without saying" is not a right way to make transactions with them :) A simple 'Both pilots and...' is needed there.

Hmmm, to me all was clear ... anyway, I love these "box-opening" bugs ... 1st box is auto-opened and if the 1st visual dropping box contains any premium time, you'll get stuck within blue clouds ... (if any further box contains premium time, no problem, it is only the 1st visual dropping one ... maybe that helps, Blindfold?)

The boxes are acting 'normal' and you can see in the notification list that they were received and one was opened.

The gold is also added (I checked account before buying)

But what about the missions ??

The personal mission for the pilot is also more or less explained ... but what about the second mission ?? For crew exp ?? You only see the marathon missions, nothing about 'personal battle missions'.

 

Checked and got 20 crew exp boosters after one battle. So the 2 'personal battle missions' are just playing 1 battle.

Is stated in the description in the reward part - play one battle and you receive the pilot(s) plus the crew XP boosters (10 per single pilot, 20 for both pilots).

 

Boxes acting "normal" ...lol, yes, of course. I was just stating it as I noticed from yesterday and today that at least the "clouds-bug" only come when the 1st visual box contains premium time. Maybe that helps to finally fix this bug (one attempt was already made some 2-3 patches ago ...).

 

That the 1st box is auto opened is annoying but as you say you can see the content in the notification list. But ... the clouds bug erases that list, so the content of at least one chest becomes more or less unknown ...

If you mean the page in the Premium Shop, there's a description that specifies: "A personal mission completing which you will get two exclusive pilots trained for the Lavochkin La-5 and the Mitsubishi A6M5 Zero fighters is also included! You will also receive boosters for Crew XP!". Technically you receive the pilots and boosters upon completing the missions (play a battle) from the bundle. 

In any case of misunderstanding it's always worth checking the dedicated article on the portal, we try to include every possible detail in it :)

The second mission (also play a battle requirement) contains Crew XP boosters.

You seem to be correct, the blue sky usually appears if you receive some Premium Time from the crate when you have not active premium time at the moment: the Hangar changes to the premium one and it can cause a problem.

 

Regarding the first box opening automatically, we fixed it on our side some time ago, but it appeared that there were some problems on the Premium Shop side. They are being investigated at the moment. :honoring:

Absolutely correct. All rewards are still available, except for the pilots themselves of course. You cannot have two identical pilots. :)

Ah OK, I see now, in the web site news article !! 

I would have expected something in the game, in "specials and missions" list.

And Akira is awesome !!

 

Maneuverability went to 112 on the A6M5 with only advanced lightweight equipment. Maybe put Japanese special project stuff on it ? 

You also notice the guns hitting harder. More damage, burst length and range ...

having to go into forums to get "clear" answer is getting real tedious real fast.
most if not all questions here wouldn't even been asked if the description in the marathon/mission/pack/bundle was clear from start.

 

don't know how is that that hard but hey i guess it's working as intended. just like opening supplies and getting stuck in the clouds, having to restart the game, writing ticket to get information what we got. 
i am also very exited for the part where i buy an opportunity to do *edit: some mission and get "a chance" to win something in a time limited deadline. thank you so much..
