Dang $90 for a plane, I know you get the gold and premium but that's way out of my budget. Oh well

Yeah, I would drop $$ if it was just the plane.

If they wanted that much for it, they should have sold it before the last patch.  That P-51K would have been on the rough edge of OP for a premium and people would have paid anything for it, like ye olde Type-59 in world of tanks.  As it stands now, I'm not sure its going to see a lot of action.

What tier is that plane? 7?  How does it compare to the non premium one?  Is that plane worth $21?

The P-51K?   Yes, its a tier 7 premium.  Stat wise its a smidge more maneuverable than the P-51D while also being slower.   I guess if I needed more premium and gold, it wouldn't be a terrible deal (it works to about $35 in the package, once you adjust for sale prices), but since WG stuffs all those extras in every collector plane package, and I bought the cheaper ones on Cyber Monday/Thanksgiving, its not really worth it.

Jesus Christ $90 is way too much to get just one new plane.

I'd encourage WG to keep these packages within certain parameters, or even standardize them. 

 

World of Tanks, for example, finally got it right - look at their rare tank Christmas packages - all of them are $33 and come with the rare tank, and secondarily with whatever is needed to get the package up to that value (ie, low tier tank gets more gold/time). 

 

ETA:  Looks like they have figured it out for WoWp too, but only the RU server.   Check out their specials - three rare warplanes, all in $30 packages.  Maybe one day they will figure it out for over here as well.

Wish they would just release the China tech tree already. All those premiums obviously aimed at appeasing the Chinese has gone on long enough. It's not like they need that many premium fighters for crew training.

for the love of god stop bundling exclusively with premium.

if you want to make bundles stupidly expensive because you insist on stuffing them with unnecessary items, give people an option of what unnecessary item we want.

 

For example, instead of 180 days of premium, offer the gold equivalent instead.

WG gets it's $90 and the customer at least picks the lesser evil to their particular needs.

I'll buy one when there's enough people populating that tier to make it worth it.

Too few people playing this game to support having flights and clans now as it is anyways, let alone buying a higher tier premium to wait forever just to play the same few people over, and over, and over...

The times 5 is how many of each consumable you get.

 

I'm kind of curious as to why WOT got a tank and we didn't get a plane.

I see. Or maybe it's because WGA copied and pasted the pic from WG RU, who do get x5s.

 

We get a plane- the Do 17 - just have to complete the holiday mission.
