Summer is almost here and as part of this month-long event, we've got a host of missions for each nation and a special reward for completing them all!

These are the kind of missions that will bring in new players ,,,, well done WG.        The extra hanger slot alone is great.

Holy moley

 

So if I collect everything, I'm coming out of this with:

 

7 hangar slots

2 T6 premium planes

15 days of premium

 

Not bad!!


There are no bombers in the game.

Oh...Damn....getting the IJN one may be tricky...but I am glad now that I have all my trees at tier 5-minimum....

30 days to get 500k exp? No problem, cannot possibly be harder than the 300k+ in two weeks

Anyone have the stats on the two premium planes? I don't see them listed in the Encyclopedia.

 

Thanks!

 

I assume that there will be downtime in the near future to fix this...probably as soon as the event starts I would guess.

This event probably will mostly empty out the tier 9-10 queues looking at this again...there probably will be less to complain about concerning high tier matchmaking for a bit.  Hopefully the rest of the community will agree with this.

 

*fingers crossed*

I agree, this will flush the 9-10 out of queue.    likely see a lot of 4-5-6-7s

I have a feeling that the 9's will be out in full force trolling anyone trying to complete the missions for the premium planes. Personally slightly annoyed at the restrictions myself I have only two t8 left out of all the trees to grind I was hoping to get to work some planes while doing this but I guess not.

A am guessing that the planes at the end of the rainbow are premium ones, for those of us mortals that do not have the time or are unable to achieve the Japanese Ki-88 and the American Grumman XP-50 will we be able to buy them in either the game with gold or through the store?

Note: All XP multipliers count towards the mission goal (x2, x3, x5 multipliers and Premium accounts).
No artificial ingredients.

Thank goodness all the XP multipliers count.   Its still quite a grind, but doable for anyone willing to make this their primary game for the month of May.

Yes, the EU and RU sites note that they will release with update 1.4.   This is just a way to  get them a) early and b) "free"

The Strosser is in as well as a Paypal Purchase (if only I had paypal), which is awesome! Your Rotary Club is going to grow I think!

Excellent! Now all they have to do is release a UK Heavy Fighter and let the crew training begin.

What?! Where?  I don't see it.

 

ETA:  Ah, NM, doesn't start until tonight.     Still $60, but none of that silly credits stuff, just the plane (and hanger), gold, and premium time.  Its a step in the right direction, may have to buy in on this one...
