Meh... nothing to be excited about here. And the specials for WoT are pretty lame this weekend too. I guess I'll be playing Magic Online or something else.

This is a cool event. I should have picked up the XP-50 last weekend, now I will.

While there are no uber rewards that require an insane grind they are not bad. They can't have super rewards every weekend.

Aw, bummer! From the title I thought you were having a ramming contest.

LOL, that was my first thought too.

Ha!

 

Me too.

 

I thought it would be RAM-related.

 

I like the x2 Crew XP rewards.

Probably my favorite reward, honestly.

 

Thanks,

 I fixed one of the negs for you...

 

However, you must not have many multi-skilled pilots/gunners... x2 crew XP is a blessing for those of us with such crews.



NDA means just that... NON-DISCLOSURE. Don't ask me about Alpha/CBT.

No kidding man.

You can buy airplanes, you can convert XP, you can do all sorts of things...

...but grinding Crew XP ends up being the most crucial in the long run.

 

And once you get a few Skills trained on a Crew... it takes a Loooong, Loooong, Loooong time to get to the next level with them.

 

I'd say Crew XP is the most valuable commodity they can reward us with.

 

Yes... ANY... and ALL... Missions could be about Crew XP and I'd love it.

Yeah, that's a great price for two premium planes, if you don't already have them in your hanger.

If you already have one of the planes and buy the bundle do you get the gold value instead or do you have two of the same plane in the hangar?

I prefer 3X first wins or double unlimited XP or better!

You get the gold BUT beware because it'll be at current market value which could be discounted!

Pretty lackluster rewards for the efforts. Nothing like trying to increase the population, right? The third reward is the same as the first one.

It says 10% XP increase on numbers one and three. They haven't had a decent set of weeklies since E3. IMHO they have given up on trying to increase the population, at least until clans and competition both are in place.

Double Crew XP is always a good thing, and I will gladly take it any time it is offered. I have a few planes I have recently acquired Elite status for but their pilots are not yet 100% trained. This event will help complete their training and possibly make a bit of progress on crew skills. I see Double Crew XP events as a chance to train my crews and prepare them for the "play hard for a high-end reward" month-long events.

I picked up the 2 planes. I like the C-6 a lot! Very nice plane. I'm still undecided on the XP-50, but it seems at least decent.

Is this true?

I looked at the shop rules and maybe I'm reading it wrong?
