Wash, rinse, repeat.  Nothing exciting or challenging, rewards aren't that great.  Last night I got six crates to open-4 automatic engine restarters, and two reinforced airframes.  I have plenty of both really don't need or want more. 

Anyone getting any planes other than tier II or III?  This would have been a great weekend or week-long  affair, but three weeks?

Got 2, 4, and 5 in the same day...

 

...the rest was junk that very day...



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...

Wish I was bored, have not been able to fly one battle in the event due to the single time frame.

 

Pity, pity.......................

i have had a total of 17 CTDs from the start of this event.  The best crate i have had has been 250 gold, on a purchased crate.  the worst 2 first aid kits on a won crate.  have not received a single plane or blue print.  I have played both sides winner and losers.  the first few days was fun now not so much.

Good hunting, fly fast, shoot faster or die in flames.

Wow, that's some bad luck. But maybe you won loads of tokens or premium time?

I have you beat by 2 I think

So far I've got 115 game stopping errors (57 server connections lost during log in, 39 client failure during map load or black screen in hangar, 19 CTD)

218 attempts to play the game

148 games played.

Today for example I had to shut down and close the game after every single match I played due to an CTD or the game not releasing memory so I can't open the team score, open a box, or play another game because doing so will cause a CTD.

 

As for opening the crates

When I open a crate, I get a red field.

And that's all I get.

No crate opens, I still have the same number of crates as when I open the window.

 

If anyone is wondering why I'm still playing.

Your guess is as good as mine.

 

Yeah, I'm anal

I keep track of that stuff.

I also keep track on what plane earns the most for me.

A British carrier based fighter.

 

 

Edit

As I'm typing this, going from the Hangar to the profile/records the game CTD'd.

DICTA BOELCKE for WoWP
    1. Try to secure the upper hand before attacking.
    2. Always continue with an attack you have begun
    3. Open fire only at close range, and then only when the opponent is squarely in your sights
    4. You should always try to keep your eye on your opponent, and never let yourself be deceived by ruses
    5. In any type of attack, it is essential to assail your opponent from behind
    6. If your opponent dives on you, do not try run away from his attack, but fly to meet it
    7. When over the enemy's lines, always remember your own line of retreat
    8. It is better to attack in groups of four or six. Avoid two aircraft attacking the same opponent

good news is.....you can always sell the rewards you don't want.

CREDITS are a good addition for later use.

Bored with it so soon...lol.

 

I was bored looking at the advertisement.

Event is only from 9 to 11 EST. A 2 hour event and you can win prizes.

 

I have played enough of WG events to understand the prizing system and what they are good for.

My solution is to ban the kids from the internet from 8:30 until the event is over so I can have my play time and win stuff.

 

I do not bother doing that. NO REASON FOR IT.

Until something better comes along and WG makes some really good FREE stuff to win

I will just continue playing when I can and farm for tokens.

If you didn't know any better, most of WG's events are RNGfest. Ofcourse the roll for high value prizes is going to be low. Doesn't help that this japanese threat event opens only once a night. If it was open more than once then there would be more chances to win big. Or you can scrub it up and spend real $$$ for tokens & get em' crates while it's hot!

Yep. This has got to be the worst event they've done. No challenge and no payoff.

I have not been able to get bored, they did not allow me to play due to the short opening of the event.

 

Haven't done 1 battle...........
