I just spent the past few days grinding T8+ to get position 29 and no gold.  

 

Gonna Nope, Nope, Nope on this one. Will take my anger out at T2/T3 and newbies be gosh darned.  

 

[Edit] Actually, I am taking a break.  Just got a notification that the kindle library book I have on hold is now mine.  See Ya!

How many of these narwhal jockies are there, anyway...

WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

I've got the J7W1 and 2 ...

Time to get reacquainted. Not bad planes at all, only those slow-firing 30mm's ...

LOL.  I forgot this was even happening.  If I saw anyone flying one of them I didn't notice.

wait, just because i placed first for mastery means i don't even place in the top ten for Perseverance? just the number of my 20,000+ personal point battles combined during this event equal more than the ninth place individual.

 

would i be possible to see my total personal points earned in the J7's?

who besides me immediately assumed that we'd be flying p-38s, when you first saw the name of this event? 

 

who would have much preferred p-38s rather than shindens?

Magnificent Lightning is literally what Shinden means...

 

...but who could've known that they are an endangered species...had it been P-38 the list wouldn't be this barren.

Thank you to the organisers for this event.  I got to specialise my J7W1  so a win / win all round.  I hadn't flown it much before and now I really like it.  Slow firing but a great WALLOP...   I do not understand why I received 4 crates for coming second but thanks anyway.  It was fun to not know where my pacing was during the event but suspect that may put other players off.  Kudo's to all the other competitors and well done.

Only 20 out of 50 spots filled ... not as bad as this one, but still.

I think it was a typo on the part of the STAFF. 

I only received 4 crates as well. 

Looking at the prize list it just seems like common sense that the #1 spots would receive 5 crates and the #2 spots would receive 4 crates. 

However I feel as if since WG made the mistake they should compensate us for the crates. 

Not complaining or whining just posting an opinion. 

I am not bothering to send in a ticket about the subject,

Very old bug ; you actually did receive 5 crates, but the first one is self-opening. Look in the little log bottom right where you also saw the other prizes (Legendary Multirole Fighter Pilot medal and the gyroscpic sight) and you will see the contents of the 1st crate.

I came #22 (EU) and got 1 crate that of course also auto-opened, but the contents (uprated engine and exp) were shown there.

You cannot be in the winning list for both ratings. I don't have this information but I'll try to find it out if possible. Very impressive result btw, congrats! :medal:

As GonerNL correctly points out, the first crate opens automatically. Its content is listed in the system messages when you enter the game for the first time after receiving rewards. There's no typo :)
