Last time consumables went on sale I bought 100,000,000 credits worth... now I'm back up to 26,000,000... but you can never have too many extinguishers.

You sure have been posting a lot Sonic...

Mind if I call you Sonic?

Anyways, in the past most adm folks tended to avoid the forums except Prime.

Even then, he only posted periodically....

Is this gonna be an ongoing deal?

Ironic. In Russian WoWP Region its played more as a dominance of the USA space program.

Airmen!

April 12 marks the 57th anniversary of the first manned flight into space, and the game will host a special event dedicated to this event.

Historical information


On April 12, 1961 Yuri Gagarin made the first manned flight around the Earth on the Vostok-1 spacecraft in the history of mankind. In 108 minutes he performed exactly one revolution in the earth's orbit.

 

RU WoWP portal source link

 

The RU WoWP pilots say the event is meager when compared to pre-2.0 same anniversary celebrations. But hey, thats them.

That is absolutely fine! Considering the Community is literally my job, I will be around for as long as they will let me!

If by Honeymoon, you mean "this is my job and I am glad to be here" then you would be correct! :teethhappy:

19k+ manual consumables?  You sure are prepared for the long haul.  Interesting that you don't stock First Aid.

With only three slots you have to make compromises...

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

First Aid doesn't help if someone is on your tail.  If I am on someones tail, its just a matter of time till they are down.  It all depends what crits are happening to your plane.  Mine are generally set up to resist pilot injury, so I stock what is most useful based on my plane equipment and pilot skills.

I have found the consumables seem to be on sale once a month.

 

Usually pick up a 100 or so at a time to carry over until the next sale.

 

Now a hanger slot sale is a very rare creature. I don't think we have seen one of those this year ?

 

I have a bunch planes unlocked that i need to buy and hate to sell my planes !

Hangars are free though,for 18 tokens, and they have given a bunch away for missions over the past few months.  I racked up 20 extra just from mission completions.  I'd sell em to ya if I could.

I have been hoarding my tokens in the off chance that they have something like they did when bombers got introduced.

I was pretty new to the game then and had no tokens to help towards getting them.

I have played the missions for free hangers when they become available.

The biggest problem is i play every line in the game so i always seem to have a plane to buy.

The problem has slowed down as i am grinding tier 8's now and they take  more games then the lower tiers.

I am collecting tokens as well for the same reason, but it will be a while before the next major event, so if I were you, I wouldnt sweat a few tokens for hangar slots because it would mean unlocing a new plane.

 

You could sell your planes, you don't lose anything by doing that except for some silver.

That makes sense, think I will look at how I set up a few of my planes.  Most of the planes I fly have a tail gunner that is important to my survival, so a First Aid pack is in almost all of my builds.  Habit makes me put them in fighters, which might not be the best thing to do since I lose tail surfaces more than pilots.
