I bought the A6M3 (exp) last year, and I tried to win the special decoration set offered for Zero Hour. It said I only had to earn 3000 Personal Points in a victorious battle. I flew my A6M3 (exp) and earned 5410 Personal Points, but I received no decoration set. Am I not eligible if I didn't purchase the plane in the current Zero Hour offer? I see no mention of that in the mission, in fact the criteria didn't even say I had to be flying an A6M3, but I assumed I had to own one.

You have to buy the current package to get the mission to earn the camo.  The mission will show up under personal missions tab. 

 

Also, you wouldn't need to fly the A6M-3 to complete the mission, but you don't get the mission unless you buy the package. It doesn't explicitly say, "you must buy this package to get this misison", but the mission is listed in the things that come with the package. 

 

The same thing happened to me a while back with the Il-1, I think it was...some premium that I already had, anyways.

Thanks.

 

Too bad they don't open it to previous owners. No real reason why not, since we can't buy another one anyway.

You are right.
But if you buy it (or anything else that you already have) anyway you get the gold value of the plane
(what it would cost to purchase it in the tech tree UI) instead.
In this case, you would get 1950 gold for the plane + the 2500 gold and 300 gold for the Hanger slot

ProTip: This is sometimes a neat way to get gold at a discount. 
Not in this case though. Here you're kicking out 22.50 bucks.  which is the full price for 4750 gold.

But for keeping the servers running you get your moneys worth in a useful amount of gold.

Just consider the 5 point premium pilot and the (super easy) mission for a unique skin
(that may offer a 5% bump in exp gain or maybe a 3% cruise speed enhancement) 
as a nice little extra Thank You from WeeGee for contributing when you did not have to...

 


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.

Thanks, I'll make it a habit to check on that.

If you already have the plane, you don't get the crew/pilot and also no compensation for not recieving the crew/pilot.
