Thanks for removing the "result counts only if you win" requirements.   I feel... listened to.. :bajan:

 

Can this be looked into? I just gave up and skipped a simple mission to destroy 3 heavy aircraft in 1 mission because it had the only victorious battles count stipulation. Had a hard enough time just finding heavy aircraftaircraft. Seems everyone is flying multiple lately and I would pick away at heavy for a while then as soon as I got him down to a few hit points someone swoops in and takes a shot or two so when I deliver the final hit I am left with an assist or major contrib over and over again or they flat out steal the kill. But then i finally get 3 heavies rate #1 in the mission but it ends in a defeat and all my effort was a waste of time. Same thing happened with the 5 fighters mission. Took forever as only victories counted. Doing the XP-55 BTW.

Awesome!!! :great:

 

Missions seem doable with a moderate amount of grinding.  Appropriate for the rewards.

 

VAMPIRE Mission Complete

 

Pretty easy overall I would say, although the missions took a lot longer to go through... made it to about 700/1800 Candy missions as well.

 

Tokens spent 0. Real $ spent 0.  Times it took to get Gabreski... 5 attempts.

 

Thanks for the free plane WG... now on to the XP-55!

Ehm, I was told (by you) that the paintjob (camo + emblem) for the Vampire was the same as the recent event where you could win it ... but this looks very different !!

 

So, if you already have the Vampire, do you get the extra paintjob and hangar or only gold ??

I am pretty sure that the camos and emblems are the same.

The ones for the set of missions looks like this:

 

How do look yours for the Op Order?

Disconcerting, but not wholly unsurprising really....

I'm surprised we would get gold.  I swear, for the past few years the rule was if the aircraft was purchased in store, then yes to gold, but if acquired via event, silver value.  So this would be a pleasant surprise if one was motivated to regrind the Vampire.

Great!!

That makes it worthwhile to do that mission. Might take some time, but great compensation.

It has always been gold compensation whether you purchased the plane from premium, with gold from hangar, or won it in a previous event.  I have capitalized on many a duplicate plane prize.

Perhaps I got confused with Tanks then?  No matter...GG!

LOL@ rare aircraft and then in 3 months when WG makes changes you will Nerf the planes stats to junk just like all the past so called "special Aircraft" FFS! How about spending time on fixing issues of game play than the loot box style of nonsense... I am sure 95% of the players would prefer year old game bugs to be fixed than the time wasted on the holiday graphics..
