Where are they? There was one last weekend and WoT and WoWS have something every weekend (x3, Crew Skill Boosts, Line Discounts etc...), but I see nothing here, even with a new update today. 

 

How on earth is WoWP gonna keep, let alone increase, its player base if it can't compete with its competitors/rivals/cousins, especially given historical reputation (hardly stellar)?

 

If 2.0+ is a reinvention of WoWP, surely you gotta provide incentives for folks to come look, maybe stay, especially at launch?

 

Now please don't kill the messenger here, I see a glimmer of potential and I'm trying to help, but many other WoT/WoWS players looking in (again?) will ask the same Q, then go back to their x3 XPs++ in WoWS and WoT for the weekend:

A big one is coming up I think...wait for it...

WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

Just a shame there's no hangar slot sale. Guess I'll have to flog (some of) my Tier I/2/3 planes, pack the barracks and then premium planes with any of their crews over the barracks capacity of 8, and wait for a garage sale to be able to repurchase the Tier I/2/3 planes I want to keep at some later date. Hello Tier 4/5!

I've only got 3, and don't see a way to buy more, like to get the Blenheim IV (e.), for which I now have one left aileron, a right rudder, a single propeller blade and a trigger guard off one of the rear guns- all that from those 'loot' crates of last month.

 

True though, if I had the 18 I could enlarge the barracks or buy more hangar slots, but sometimes I like to kick the free in 'freemium', you know, just to make sure it's still there...

That's great, it gives WG NA time to add in what the others left out and as we're discussing here, a hangar slots and barracks sale @ 50% off ;-) .

Well Friday night here.  W/E has started.....

 

Tomorrow is the 11th, and it'll be parades a veteran's lunch, followed by beer.  Glad to see WG is timing these events for when a % of the player base has other responsibilities.  

IMHO - If its a Military W/E... break the rules and add ether the Friday and/or Monday to the W/E event so those that serve can still get a good 2 days of in-game events.

Well amen to this (^), for those on the SE Asian Front (o7), especially in these troubled times. I think it's important to respect/make allowances for those holidays in nations that make up the NA Server. I've seen Canada's National Day (for example) go unnoticed at other WG titles, and while I think consistency across servers for a lot of issues is good, so's respecting the diversity of the player base.

As an aside- and as I tried to do this- just a heads up on selling machines to free up hangar slots. To do it most effectively need to:

 

1) Put the pilot (if you want to keep him and his skills) in the barracks or temporarily in another (premium) plane

2) Go to upgrades and return the plane's equipment to what you got when you bought it (i.e. basic strip down) so you don't pay for the equipment again when you re-purchase the plane (this equipment gets returned to Depot)

3) Demount equipment, pay in Gold if you want or if not you'll get 50% of cost (and you can buy again when the sale @ 50% is on- like this weekend!)

4) Sell without crew and without ammunition (gets returned to Depot too). You get 50% of the machine's purchase price.

 

Key things are:

 

1) Sell BEFORE the sale starts or you will get 50% of the sale price on everything that's on sale, so effectively you'll only get 25% of what you paid for it. 

2) There is a 5 (?) Plane limit on Plane sales (I only found this out as I went to sell my 6th). So if you want to sell more (I wanted to sell 10) you have to stagger it a couple of days prior to sale. I'm now going to be stuck selling 5 machines as in (1) above. Best I could do was sell the higher tiers in 1st 5 tranche so at least the silver damage will be minimized (I'll be selling Tier 1 & 2 @ 25% of sale price)

 

Hope this helps someone else who plans to go this route for the sales.

You sure (sales started yesterday)? Got an example?

 

The P40 (USA) was 334K yesterday, 167K today. That's 50% off. If you have that example I'll double check for you.

Thanks for looking.
