Hard to believe I was 50 once.  But time flies.  Thank you for everything except the fireworks.  Who there thinks fireworks is an incentive to play?

What happens if we've already got the Avia - do we get gold compensation?

It's a different Avia :)

if it's like the past, I would think so...

if not they can expect many whine threads

like this:

 


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

So we do this early and end swiftly? Thanks all the same for giving the prospects of stuff every year at this time.



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...

Birthday's....something else used to have birthday celebrations...what was it again...something promised to be brought back...almost 2 years ago...no, not clan wars, clan wars was an outright fib initiated by clan tags being introduced...maybe it was hangar space purchase date birthdays?

 

Whatever it was...it was idiotic (imho) to remove it in the first place...but just one of many bad decisions made over 20 years...Happy B-day Wargaming!

 

 

 

P.S. You owe me two years worth of aircraft bday free xp and premium time (about 5 months or so) that I grinded all aircraft lines through to get these benefits from.  I'll forfeit the 2/3x credits/experience.

I find it odd that this isn't posted on the game launcher news.  Could they be so out of touch that they are unaware that most players don't frequent the forum?

Hey At lest we got "trinkets"

Something ,better then noshing!

 

 

Now if the fireworks could "blind" an opponent for say five seconds now that would be cool!  Just the pilot,not gunners if the A.C. has any.

Alrighty then ... ... 

 

Looks like we have a few unresolved issues here which I, (noob girl) do not understand.  

 

But I AM a big fan of FREE STUFFS!!! ... 

 

​Unfortunately I will be working all weekend so getting enough wins to earn the Avia is just going to be out of reach.  Still, nice to know I could if I had the time. 


"Don't mess with me because I can squish you like a bug, that is If I should decide to notice your existence in the first place".  

 

Yes, it's haughty and its arrogant but you're a battleship with 16 inch guns and Britannia Rules the Waves.  Maybe a bit of arrogance in this case is appropriate.

Well the X5 is good for some special projects I am working on so there's that.  

 

Would be nice if they decided to use the occasion to bring back anniversary aircraft rewards as promised previously...
