Don't bother wasting tokens on these impossible, bug-filled missions when the reward is only a non-premium that will be available later. 

 

I could see the reasoning in doing so for Tier VIII premiums, but for Tier VI non-premiums, the better option is just to wait. I'm not saying don't play Skies of Albion for loot crates, of course they can have some good rewards, like special camos, already-trained crew, and low-tier premiums right out of the box.

 

It's just that these missions for non-premiums seem like an exercise in frustration, and(in the case of some of them) futility.  

 

 

The long way 'round, will, I believe, be more satisfying and less frustrating.

 

 

What say you?


An average player with an average goal: greatness, someday. Today, mediocrity will have to suffice. But no matter, I will always play to the best of my ability, and I will always strive to make the best of my ability just that little bit stronger and better.

I got the mission for the Do17 Z. It was like under 10 tokens. I had them, I spent them, got a custom paint job, nose art, and emblem. That to me was not a bad deal. Got 3 other missions, let them expire

havent gotten anything note worthy since the event started. PLaying axis cause easy effortless wins are so mind numbing.

The 2nd RB mission isn't hard just fly around and shoot AA or was that ground targets... Hmmm.

First was ground targets (500 Capture Points worth), second was AA, third was Bombing.

 

I have an 88A but I've never breached 400 Capture Points in GTs.

Personally I wouldn't waste tokens on skipping missions for tech-tree planes.  Nor would I waste the time and effort it takes to complete the missions.

 

Events like these, the best use of tokens is to go for the premium planes.

I'm in it for the gold...:hiding:

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.

Tokens & Gold.

 

Mission designers might need to actually think these things through perhaps.

2. play through the event and the missions

3. think about it some more

4. repeat steps 2 and 3 at least 3 more times before going to step 5

5. release the event.

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

Haven't seen a mission from loot crates. Haven't had game time during most days so only picked up a few 2 and 4 ticket crates.

I got all of the Brit MRs, all of the German Bombers, the Blenhium, and A26 from the tons of Santa boxes I bought. Funny thing is, I was buying the boxes for the free XP to use in tanks. The only thing I wanted and didnt get was the RB, because they messed up the wording on the mission.

I agree.  

 

I have opened 4 loot boxs every night except the one night WG rigged an Axis victory and I got one mission and then realized I had to use golden paperclips for it and said, NO WAY.  

 

So far the loot boxes have been mostly garbage.

Same. Sparklers and Fireworks are so useless. They aren't the worst I've gotten though, oh no. I've gotten only 20,000 credits and 1 premium consumable before, that was all that was in one crate. I be like::amazed::facepalm::angry::angry::angry::(

 

Let's be honest here, these crates are rigged to give easily obtained crap most of the time, and give actually reasonably difficult to obtain stuff 0.00000001 percent of the time.

 

Also, I hate this "delayed free access to new tech tree planes" thing World of Warplanes does.

 

For goodness sake, people, JUST RELEASE THE FREAKING TECH TREE PLANES TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC IN THE PATCH THEY WERE INTRODUCED TO THE GAME CLIENT IN! WORLD OF TANKS DOES IT! WORLD OF WARSHIPS DOES IT! HECK, EVEN "THAT OTHER GAME" DOES IT!

 

SO WHY CAN'T WORLD OF WARPLANES DO IT? This alternative system is a complete rip-off 99.99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999% percent of the time, and even when it ISN'T a rip-off, THE STUPID MISSIONS ARE IMPOSSIBLE AND/OR BUGGY AS ALL GET-OUT!

 

:facepalm:

Why, WG? Why do you torture us like this in this game and this game alone?:unsure:
