How does that experience bonus work? Is it free experience? 30,000 XP on the plane that gets the 30th victory?

Wow, EXPERIENCE. Nice special. Someday, we'll have a clock in the hanger and can figure out when things happen. This is a great way to up-train some pilots. Wulf

Considering the mission bonuses are for the win, wouldn't "Foxtrot Tango Whiskey" be a more apt title? Regardless, that's a big bowl of XP to dig into.

The mission rewards need to be clarified.  Is it XP on the plane you get the 10th, 20th, 30th victories on?  Is it crew XP?  Is it Free XP?

 

Since it says the rewards can be stacked I would think it would be XP on the plane that achieves the specified victory. At least I hope so.

I'm envisioning being able to play each of my planes to 30 wins every day and getting that xp on each plane. 

 

Can I get a ruling?  Who's got the bylaws?

 

Edit:  I think getting 30 wins on two planes in one day would be a , btdubs.

May I ask how the XP is given out? Free XP is obviously not the case given you're not that generous.... so the plane that gets the 30th win, huh?

 

Well, WoWP time for me this weekend. Not gonna leave much time for WoT...

Free experience would be by far the simplest method. Wulf

I would maybe chalk this up to error again, I bet its supposed to be credits, never in my life have I seen WG give away free xp.  Last special had errors as well.  I think their website copy editor may not speak english or something but I would not bet on free xp and getting it on just one plane that you happen to win with doesn't seem logical either.  I hope its true but something tells me it won't be.

I don't think we can trust that WG did the simplest method. Bacon.

This is a great question, it is on the aircraft of the milestone victory. AKA aircraft specific experience.

We do have plans to implement a Hangar clock. Hang in there, it will come.

Free experience is a possible reward but it is not being used on this specific mission.

Why do these events start late Friday (early Saturday in Eastern time) when they used to start a day earlier?

One more post, THANK YOU all for your feedback, ideas, patience and help.

Missions are new and there will be some learning bumps but in the end I think they're a huge win and a great time to be had.

We're scheduled to have daily doubles and event start times pop at 4am PST in the near future, an announcement will go out when that change is set in stone.

February should be the last month of wonky start times.

So (in the fond hope of skipping by my P-40), at each level, carefully recorded on my yellow pad, I need to be careful to be in the correct plane? OK, can do I hope. A great special. Wulf
