Hello all, I have decided to formally introduce myself on the forum here. I have played WoT for some time now and I have extensive experience in WT as well. I will be honest here, I didn't expect to enjoy the game all that much. I downloaded it with the intention of grinding free XP for WoT. However, having spent the entire day playing the game I have to say I am having loads of fun. It is relaxing to jump into a plane and shoot other planes without playing spot the dot. It looks like I have another WG product to grind on. Now I am at a loss of which tier 10 to get first. Thanks for reading! You will be seeing a lot more of me.

Welcome to the game! Yes, I tried WT too and not to my liking. I tried WP when it was re-released and it is quite fun, though definitely a work in progress, 

 

Hard to say what you first T10 should be. I would say play a bunch of planes and see what works for you. The grind from 1-5 is really fast, I think they have it turned up to get new players to mid-high tiers faster.

 

Spitfire is a solid line all the way through though. Some of the other lines have "interesting" planes at some point

Don't get me wrong I love WT, but 30 and 40 minute engagements were tiresome. I am actually grinding to the Spit mk1 as we speak I got the one from the code and it is great. I just purchased the tier 4. With that purchase I have found my first keeper. I just had an amazing battle where I contributed 12k points in it.

Welcome! Will be nice to see more people at the higher tiers. British light fighter line is borderline OP in the current meta so its a decent one to go up for a pick up n play guy

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

I also got the tier 8 and 7 British premiums for credits and crew training. The tier 8 is a beast.

Seafang is a nice plane, yes. Maneuverable for a multirole. Pleasantly surprised at your performance in your premiums so far - see you in the skies :p

Welcome.  I agree the game is fun to play, having returned after about a 4 year absence to check out "beta 2.0".  WG is still flailing around miserably trying to figure out what to do to keep players around though.  And, generally ignoring any feedback from EU and, especially, NA.  According to WG:  <<Ты говоришь по английски? Прости. Мы не понимаем. Ваши слова или ваши мысли.>>


 

Since you are so new to this title, if you'd like some advice, I offered some to another new player in their thread, here.  You might take a peak, if you haven't run across that thread already. 


 

Good Hunting.

:honoring:


 

Also, regarding WT...I can play an hour in WoWP (if the bots aren't ruining matches too bad) and it feels like not much time.  While I can appreciate the Sim value of that title, spending 20 minutes getting to battle...or crashing on takeoff, makes that game feel tedious.

and PS...play more, forum less.  Your opinion might be more credible.

Hey welcome to WOWP! Check out this link https://games.steels...de-key-giveaway for some free tier 5 planes and use the code PCPWOWP2 for another plane or two. Not a bad time to join up.

Thanks for the awesome code! I had already used the second one, but the first one really helps me out a ton!

Hey you are welcome! I wish the others were still active they gave a bunch of planes away this holiday season and even more if you were brave enough to buy Santa gift bags. I spend maybe 50-60 and got like 40k gold 400k free xp and a bunch of planes. Worth it!
