  The problem with these missions to win planes is first having to do them all in 24 hours.  The second problem is doing all that one mission at a time.  You must stay up for 24 straight hours to even have a chance. Some of us are over 50 and that just don't work for us. Remove the one mission at a time and let all your stats apply to all steps of the missions and more people will try to accomplish it.. Maybe make it 48 hours or only count your 24 hours when you are engaging in the missions. Go to bed with time left on your clock and start again tomorrow or the next day.. Seems like the idea here is to attract more players so make the win a plane missions more attractive to all players instead of hoping players will come close and out of frustration buy certificates and planes. Finishing these missions should win you a F-15 EAGLE for Gods sakes !!   I try to give ideas that would help the player participation but I don't really expect wowp to do something good to help everyone, that would show generosity and an observation of caring !!    HAM

Ham, I agree. Once I put the kiddies to bed I have about 3 hours per day to fly.  Increasing the time to grind out the planes would be a great idea.  Some people have to work.

I am holding out for a B-52D.  I worked on the F-15 and didn't like it.

 you do not have to finish them in 24 hours  if you have the tokens you can extend the time on the orders it took me a total of 9 days to get the vampire at five tokens a day but i was able to make about 5 tokens  a day. so i had no problems keep it running and sleep and even going out to a party and not even play that day i just made sure i keep it going. for ever 5 tokens you get a day i just did day by day ... also in the last two events i got 19 new planes  from crates or just missions they had ... so i do not get all these complaints yes the mission are hard yes it suck that it is 24 hours but war game  is a business that is out to make money most company just make you pay for every thing you want ...  plus these last to events i was able to buy two more planes with the gold i saved up .. so as far as i can see they are give you a lot of time to get stuff that you may want . but that is just my opinion  ...  i think on the  the bombers it was like 3 tokens  a day if you need to extend the mission, but i got both of them in less then 24 hours  .. and i am not that good at this game so if i can do it so can any one else

At one time you did do all the missions at the same time and you could get them done in a few hours . I think to many people were winning and they changed that. But I'll tell it was the greatest thing to have that one perfect battle and complete half the missions. Just thinking about those battles .........

after i  wrote this i just made 7 tokens, .  i do not sweat the tokens  either  i get them or i do not  if i have them i use them i do not think they are as hard to get as you think,, i not sure what tier you play but after i got to tier 8 with most of my tec tree it just seem easy for me to get them .. but i have free time maybe you do not... so here my question to you

 

what are you wanting from war games ? and i not try to be  mean.. i am  just wondering what you think war games should do for you .. or  for  other for that mater ?

WoWP just needs to steal WoWS type events and missions.  Period.  I don't mind the special event maps as WoWP seem to get them a little more balanced each event but some requirements are a breeze only for certain aircraft but impossible for others.

Removing the Order because you missed extending it with tokens is stupid. It should just be suspended. Especially after you are on the last mission for the tier 8 plane, after extending it several times and paid off a couple of the missions with certificates. 

 

Thankfully, Customer Service eventually came through and allowed me to complete the last mission with certificates.

That's something WG often overlooks ... like with the recent Halloween event. Great idea, but a large group of players was (unintentionally I hope) excluded.

Same for the 24hr missions ; it sounds nice but in reality many of us only can fly 3 - 4 hours of those 24 (on weekdays and sometimes even in weekends).

The other problem is the player base screwing each other over to complete mission objectives instead of going for the win. Simply introduce the loot containers per experience earned as in Warships.
