Hartmann still best Strike Witch, but Justina's pretty upthere.  *runs*

Well that let me down a Wikipedia rabbit hole.  I see what you did there and I hadn't heard of Hartmann before

I don't have the stats on this but I feel like I've been seeing more SE100's in game lately.  Played one last night was there were 4, including myself and 3 were spec'd. Oh, and as a side note, my pilot and gunner are only 4 point at the moment. I couldn't imagine both being 15 point.  In any configuration.   It would be a nightmare.  See?  Now I have a goal.  Thx NA forum, for clarifying my vision

I've noticed all the French planes more. I guess now that folks don't have them trapped in their own micro-nation its far more appealing to fly?

Also.. yes.. yes it is a nightmare and my Cruise is like 340-something. So I just.. putt along in level flight, pegging anything that moves and if I overfly it.. oh well.. 15pt gunner + Special Project American Turret Sights means it'll be a greasy smear in a hurry after I pass it.

I'm hoping for the Chinese planes to come open to their home nations at least.  Mossie 26 to the Brits, P51K and P40B (Tomahawk IIb) to the US for example.

I'm not real sure what they think they're doing with the Chinese planes. I think all the micro-nation planes should be done like the Frenchies were, but that's just my two cents.

I have around 100k free so just sitting around.  You're saying its worth it to spend this in crew advancement?  I haven't changed crews in any of my lanes as of yet.  I think the highest pilot I have is aroun 7 or 8 pts.

It's worth 4+ times that on crews depending on what's going on with the multiplier. I think last weekend it was a x5 multiplier when spent on crews. Normal multiplier is x4 I believe? 

After a while of dumping it into crews you end up with a lot of high point crews even though at 10+ points I believe its over 1million XP for a level. Even still, you'd have 400k of that sitting there right now without any other input and just the base multiplier for using free XP on a crew

I may have to just do that.  A while ago when I was younger In game terms I did a few pretty dumb moves that I wouldn't do if I had the chance again so I'm kinda trigger shy about things that don't come easy.

How the hell did you get so many point on pilots, payouts are pitiful and point requrements to get more pilot levels are ridiculous.

By buying experience points.  You can convert regular XP to free XP with gold, and then you can convert free XP to pilot/gunner XP.  Sometimes it would be nice if WG told us when an exchange sale was running - 5 pilot XP/free XP is not a bad deal.

It's@ 5x right now.  I'm not WG but I hope it helps

Please tell me you didn't spend money/gold to get multiple 15pt crew?!

 

I've got a bunch of 10pt crew but the step up from there to 11pt is so huge they're nearly all still 1.5mil away from 11pt.

Only my Tempest pilot is within cooee, mainly because I use him on my Vampire including with XP boosters.

Nope. I've got maybe a hundred bucks in the game over the course of almost the year I've been playing and all of that has gone to buying premium planes.

However, I've gotten a -lot- of crew, plane, and free XP boosters and I figured out they stack and they stack with the multiplier for your daily XP booster... so I can get 30k crew XP in a single battle + 2k free XP or more.... umm.. which translates to another 10k or so crew XP for a total of 40k crew XP for one bird in one battle... if I start moving that around the T8 premiums I've earned or paying the 100k to retrain and take the 10k XP hit to retrain.. well.. 

Over several months that snowballs into a LOT of insane point crews.

I just watch for the increased XP booster days/trade rates and I -have- used gold earned in game to transfer XP I had trapped on planes off and into Free XP.. I also, when I joined, brought a decent amount of Free XP from my time playing WoWS.

Add to that the fact that I regularly get 5 point pilots in various crates, that also has given me quick starts to air crew grinds.
 

Right now I have 30 crew slots in my barracks and -none- of them is under 5 points that are sitting in -barracks-. My only deficiency is in the U.S. national section.. I really didn't play anything other than my XF-90 in it for the lngest time though.

Thing is, if you watch for the multipliers and use the xp boosters 3 at a time (one of each) and bounce through a few planes and do that regularly the points just.. kinda rack out really.. really fast.

To whit, I also have to add that I've put down ~8600 battles since I began playing.

Editing to clarify: The XP boosters do not increase the rate at which free XP transfers to crew XP, but the free XP booster bases its # off of the plane XP and so does the crew XP and both go in -after- the booster for the plane XP. Multiplying an already increased #. If you are on say.. a X5 weekend..... 

Editing to add: The nerd in me pays too much attention to math of payout and reward vs. outlay for said reward sometimes and so I examined exactly how to wring the -best- xp out of everything. I log in daily to check all the  multipliers and see what's worthwhile to fly or if the day is even worthwhile at all to fly. Days between events when its x2 daily only and there's no free XP or xp to flight crew sales.. its not worth it to spend boosters, gold, or free XP. Just fly and have fun, but on the days you have a couple three sales/inreased multipliers lined up? wowwwweeeeeeeee blow your boosters, blow your earned in game gold, and go to town making up some points on your air crews!

I'm not sure I fully understand the scope of what was just written.  I've spent maybe 5 to 10 on this game over the past few years I've been playing.  Only within the last 8 to 10 months have I really been playing a lot.

This thing is a money making machine! During the hour long money boost I made over a mil.  Pretty good for a T5.  I feel broke if I don't have at last a couple mil that I can rest on.

I was messing with my SE 100 setup, swapped in a spare Lightweight Engine & took it for a spin

Got distracted a lot by the sunset & clouds (for some reason I almost always get the team that spawns the other side of this map) but still a great score :)

That's a rediculous score. Congrats.  I love those game where you have so many achievements that they overlap.  It looks a lot more manuverable than mine is.
