Just wait until the pilot skills rework.  That will be "fun".


Yeah, I bet.. What they going to take pilot skills back??. Thousands if not millions of hours, they can't be that foolish.. That would totally kill this game.. 6 years of playing the same game would be ruined totally.. Let them try to keep players when they mess with pilot EXP.. I dare them.. Their greed blinds them to reality.

Okay. Between all this and a video from Magus I think I know how it all works. Now I just have to figure out what I want to do with regard to costs in credits and material and in my case, especially tokens for locking and dismounting. I don't have a lot. So I have to figure where I want to end up in the near future or at least where I'll be for a significant amount of time and then make a plan.

Rats...... Guess you didn't get the memo. Last weekend for 1 day, they had period III equipment on sale at 50% off. So you bought as much as you could and then IMMEDIATELY sold it back for 100%. Over and over, buying 1 part at a time. Tedious and I got tired of doing it. I seemingly had all the silver you could spend anyway. But I managed to up my 278 million credit credits to over 396 Million credits (I picked 396 (a big block that was actually a 402) because I had one in a 1970 Chevy Chevelle SS. Lot's of people did it and there was a Facebook post about it. I even asked Blindfold if it was a boo boo or a real thing. Never responded to my PM so I figured what the heck? I alerted a couple of people on the forums but I don't remember who. Sorry I didn't think to clue you in.

:(

Yes. this is a textbook definition of the Forum Games version of #SealClubbing.

Because this is the newcomers sevction i must spell out for impressionable pilots
Its been a long standing policy at WeeGee that:
when 'stuff to buy' is 15-30-50% off for whatever reason; the sell back price is reduced the same amount.

Specifically to prevent this exact thing from happening
 

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is much like my WinRate. Hit or Miss.
Usually I start on the right track and then a make a weird left turn and get lost in the weeds ... 
And yet it doesn't stop me from speculation.

Specialist Planes I have from : USA, UK, Germany, USSR, Europe
Light Fighters:  XP-31, Model 81A-1, P-40, P-51A, P-39N-1, XF15C, DH.100 F1, Fw 56, He 112, Bf 109 B / E / E-3, Me209v4, Me209 A, I-17
Multi-Roles: F11C-2, F4F, P-47B, Fw 190 A-1 / A-5 / D, I- 5 / 15 / 16(e)(l)

Heavy Fighters: P-38 F/J,  XP-58, Tu-1, Bf 110 C-6, SE 100, Me 410, Do 335 A-1, Me 262

I figured it was... but I've also seen strange things happen on video games. I remember one night on WoW you could buy all the best PvP gear in the game for one honor point.. and it sold back for full honor points. I completely abused that. I was going to be sad I missed out.

Ahhh...yeah.... that's why I asked Blindfold. But I got aggravated and picked up a million something and then got bored. I thought I was pretty clear on that? This had nothing to do with

the "Forum Games version" of seal clubbing.:P

 

"sell back price is reduced the same amount. "Specifically to prevent this exact thing from happening". 

Ahhh...yeah.... Duh. :sceptic:  I guess I sounded unclear about that fact? Did I break a forum rule by NOT pretending that it didn't happen?  :B  Or was I too greedy by picking some up?.... silver that I didn't need anyway? :unsure: 

Where is this textbook? I obviously must IMMEDIATELY read it. :trollface:

I'm okay with credits for now. I have 3.5M, not the huge amount you have, but so far no issue with buying things. It's tokens that I have only a few, 6 to be exact. So for anything that requires tokens I'm rather limited.

Yes, this was an actual thing. Now to see when WG makes planes/repairs cost 10x as much to bring economy back to normal...

As far as I know it's never happened before? Not to my recollection anyway. Doubt that the WG economy was greatly affected.  :unsure:

 

Edit: I didn't need it. Nor did the people who "participated" in the act. Even my previous amount was climbing (slowly?) at tier 10.

I hope that doesn't happen.  But now that it's been suggested... :o
