I just want to say while appreciate the x 3 for us, but it does not sit well with me that EU and RU get x5 , I have been working my but off to get 100,000 exp in each nation and because the population is so low I am being clubbed in 65% of my matches and I will never have the time to get the rewards  of 2 tier 6 premiums unless I  grind everyday all day . Times 5 would have gone a long way to showing how much you appreciate us !  I have premium planes to grind credits exp would be better! Sorry to be negative but at some point I need to take a stand !

Well, yes.

 

Thanks for SOMETHING, I guess, but really? WHY are we left with drippings when EU and RU get a feast? Are we really paying that much less as a region to the WG coffers?

 

A LITTLE semblance of equality would be nice....

I guess the 5x weekend for May was moved to Memorial Day weekend?

 

Oh, also:

"Earn 10,000 XP in a battle while flying an American aircraft."

I assume that it should be: "Earn 10,000 XP while flying American aircraft." Along with the ones for the other nations as well.

For clarity, I only see 3x CREW xp, not even on the aircraft....

Can only hope there will be a x5 weekend for Memorial Day. Hope they give premium plane discounts like EU/RU is getting this weekend. Meanwhile the weekend event for Tanks is significantly better. I will spend my weekend there. See y'all Monday.

The World of tanks parade has a way better amount of goodies then Planes does. If you ask me its like comparing a Macy's parade to a local parade. long story short, we got had.:sceptic:

 

There is a funny thing though Tetark is 60 dollars. :veryhappy: who would be insane enough to buy it at that price?

No, it's a separate, supplemental mission. Knock out a tenth of your XP needed for each nation's month-long mission and get 500k credits.

And as always, NA seems to get shafted.

 

WHY is it SO hard to have all 3 servers have the same events with the same rewards?

Why punish the NA server for lack of players? That's not the fault of the playerbase.

I was going to take a spin this weekend...but WoT is far too good compared to what is going on here.

I am curious are you set up as a separate entity with your own profit center? The reason I ask is the rewards you have are always less and harder to achieve than you WOT counter part, for example this weekend in WOT is can get 720,000 for winning 45 games in the top ten where as the max I can get in WOWP is 500,000 but I have to get 50,000 in three days to get it. Compared to that winning 45 game in WOT can be done in one day  where as 50k exp will take most if not all of the weekend to accomplish.

 

I would think that you would at least make things the same as far as rewards vs effort as WOT or better. especially when you are trying to grow the community.

 

Do not get me wrong I do not want it easy, I would just like it to have it equal to WOT

I would have thought they wanted to attract players rather than , draw them away to tanks !

Tanks has 5x weekend? I understand there is 7 nations which means 200k more exp. Plus tanks didn't get to start on the mission on the weekend like wowp. I'm sure wowp gets 3x right?

Hi everyone! Allow me to explain why there is a disparity in the bonuses in our different regions this week, and give you a look at what's coming up.

 

This weekend, May 9, EU and RU are celebrating Victory Day, which is roughly the equivalent of our Memorial Day. For their Military Parade special this weekend, they are giving out x5 XP for the first victory of the day with each plane. 

 

In the NA region, two of our biggest military observances this month are Armed Forces Day, celebrated on the third Saturday of May as a tribute to the men and women serving in the US Armed Forces; and Memorial Day, observed on the last Monday in May to honor all men and women who have sacrificed their lives in military service for the United States. For these two weekends (May 16-19 and May 23-26, respectively) we have opted to give our players a bonus x2 XP on every battle. We hope you will agree that earning x2 XP for every battle you play during these two holidays is a fair bonus as opposed to not receiving x5 on the first victory of the day with each plane this weekend. Also remember that during Military Parade Weekend in NA you will be earning a x3 Crew XP bonus.

 

We're always eager to hear your thoughts and input, so let us know what you think.

Gunlion I have to agree that x2 on every battle is better than x5 on the first because knowing my luck I'll packet loss into the ground and get 5x nada
