When I saw this offer in the premium store I wondered if there were some pricing errors and typos, as far as I can see there's quite different values but the same price for all which felt more than a bit odd but ok. Then the fact that this is a tier 9 plane, for sale, as a premium. Now, I've been with WG for more than a few years now and I thought their general stance was they would never ever sell tier 9 premium vehicles for gold or cash so is this signifying a shift in WG premium store offers for the future?

 

In some ways the precursor to this was the tier 9 premium ships in WoWs, Missouri and Musashi, though you needed 750.000 free xp to get them so you had to play to either save up or convert xp to free xp for doubloons. Was this a test to see how it would be welcomed by players? I wonder. If this does signify a shift in premium store and vehicle offers it is not too surprising either when we look at the gigantic shift in online gamer mentality and what the new ageless casual gamer generation wants and spend their money on.

 

Things have changed, and is still changing, and challenge-based gaming is becoming a thing of the past and wholly casual, kick the boots of, chillax gaming is owning the whole field and is being catered to by pretty much all MMO games and companies out there. As an example, a short time ago ESO had a dress-up competition where adult men and women paid out of pocket to dress their characters up. It's not unusual at all for casuals to spend $300 a month on their favorite game(s) and more, so it is easy to see why companies are targeting this major segment.

So will still be out-turned by a Yak-19 and has the same turn time as an upgraded FJ-1. While a Premium vehicle would be great for me since is the only game of the three where I don't have one, i'm not entirely convinced about this plane. :sceptic:

 

Also, that airspeed rating is a lie based of the stats it lists, the FJ-1 should have a slightly better airspeed rating, while the goblin would have a better Altitude performance rating.

 

Sometimes I wonder how the devs come up with the numbers.

One thing you can't help but notice with the plane... apparently the designers listened to the one guy who kept saying, "you know what this plane needs?  More tail fin!"

Is the latter two, Gold Reserves and Daily Premium, missions tied in to the Goblin alone or achievable in any plane?

You have to fly the Gobling for all 3 personal missions.

Aha? Let's wait until tomorrow to see if the missions still work! I have a deja-vu feeling
