It's just a little hiccup.  I am sure they will have it sorted out come Monday when they file into work (unless it's a holiday).  

 

Hey, Happy Birthday WG!  Glad to see you are alive and well and screwing things up for, what, now, 20 years?  

 

Incredible.

The past years, the period to achieve this birthday plane seemed a bit longer. (maybe a week or even ten days)
I was totally unaware about the birthday event, logged in yesterday and got the notice that the mission was only open for the rest of the weekend (in my case 11 hours remaining)
I would want to try, but could not stay up a whole night to finish this.
I would like to pay a couple of tokens to extend the mission time, is this possible?

worse losing streak in months during the last week


compounded by the stress of 5x.      I need to take a deep breath and just relax for a while

They seemingly have extended the X5 XP.  Maybe also the plane?

You confound your enemy in Air Raid events with the pretty fireworks! (1:02 mark fireworks and rockets)

 

 

Sparklers are da bomb also!

 

Sign up for the next Wargaming hosted WOWP clan based event soon to try it out! :great:

They are good for collecting and selling for silver.  You can throw out a (useful) consumable and install these (useless) consumables in their place.  But there is a good reason why you don't see a bunch of guys flying around a battle shooting off fireworks.

Today is 5th, official notice reads "until 6th", unless it was already changed, so 7th is still more than one day away.

WG giveth and WG taketh away.

BTW, nice edit on the original post that used to say 7 August.   Poor customer relations to over promise and under deliver, though.

Surprising conclusions :) It was a simple misprint, Captain. I made a mistake - I edited a post not to misinform further on.
