Arthur! Are you feeling alright? I think the axis vs allies event was one of the better things WG has done for this game in the last couple years.

I can remember the event wasn't for all due to the time restriction.

It was good enough I could get myself up from bed at 7AM every day (would still be KO'd otherwise) for the event's duration to participate in it...and I got a chunk of gold and some early access to planes for my troubles - being unable to pay for gold means a lot.

 

Indeed, they should do something like that some other time...but the French should to be able to fight for either side...

This is what I find so frustrating about WG and WoWP. This Axis Allies event brought in roughly 1/3 more players.

Yet six months later no repeat of it or a similar event. What are they thinking?

They would need to release a whole new line to repeat the event.  I'm asuming they can only have so many new lines added, so they are releasing them slowly.

I think there was something to the whole axis planes vs allied planes....people like that thing.....and as far as new line? hogwash... just redo the even on weekends as a mini thing.....maybe win a engine cooler or something.....one of these tier 2 gift planes.....doesn't have to be huge event....small and consistent.....

The issue was also having 3 or 4 players on one side and only fighting against bots.  That is lame.

It was a fun event. Simple idea and not crazy at all. Plus 1.

While they did release a new line at the same time, I'm not sure if it would be necessary to release a new one if the event were repeated. Then again I'm not sure if the noticeable uptick in participation was due to the new line or the event. Possible some of both. The problem is we don't know, because neither a new line or an event like that one as occurred since. All I know for sure is during that short period we saw more involvement from players then has been recorded in two years.

It was a good event.. It got more people flying at one time,  if I remember correctly there were 800 plus players on lots of nights during the event. That is good for the game. I guess i gotta plus 1 you also AD

Ok, who the heck hacked Arthur's account? While it needs some tweaks it was a good event.

Meanwhile in high tier, everybody came outta the woodwork for a full match bulging with human...it did happen.

 

I think we almost hit 1k server pop then...the first time since the Wheel of Fun ten months prior.

Wasn't around for this event, but all the people I've asked said it was great, and that they'd definitely participate if it returns.  Hope WG is listening...
