2 more chevrons means I've secured the Kostikov :)

Now I need 3 more chevrons total from the final 2 events to secure the T8 & I'm feeling confident thats achievable.

 

Though at least one should be a Japanese plane specific event & we haven't had a GA specific one yet, my options are fairly limited in either of those.

I need 5 more chevrons to get the Goblin.  I think I would rather have the tier 8 though, but because it is a Chinese plane, it has no extra benefit for me.  So I am still trying for the Goblin for no other reason than I can use it as an American pilot trainer.  If I fall short of getting the Goblin, I won't take it too bad.

Anyone knows what the special paint scheme on the P-36C looks like ??

I got that plane in a bundle with 7 prem days last year, but no special camo. Got 3 chevrons now (EU server) and hope to get more for the Hurri IID, but camo for the P-36 is also nice.

 


Flying on EU, NA, ASIA and CIS servers

Allright! Made it to the T8 yay :)

I genuinely thought I'd be pushing it targeting getting the Hurricane IID when this started.

 

Now I've won a T5, T6 (compensated), T7 & secured a T8 Premium plus all the Crate goodies, Premium time & other bits.

 

I can still even get the Gobling if I top-5 the final event which is totally unexpected :amazed:

Not planning on no-lifing it though, gonna probably go for another 10-20 rank score but kinda depends on the requirements & prizes, if its something really neat I might make another big push.

Dear pilots,

 

Thank you for your feedback in the dedicated thread. You've already expressed some decent thoughts and suggestions that we'll try to take into account in other similar events, and, I hope, there'll be even more great ideas. Still, I'd like to explain the point which seems to be the most frequently mentioned. Online tracking of results.

 

You compare the Fall Campaign with Special Trials but there's one important difference between them. There has never been a "Mastery" rating in Special Trials, and all in all, everything ended up with the number of battles fought. We've received enough feedback regarding this particular point and the Community team tried to take it into account. Unfortunately, it cannot be implemented in-game at this particular moment, so, we are unloading the data after the end of the events and then algorithms can work with the data. This flow makes Mastery ratings possible at the moment.

All in all the event has been fun for me. With 80+ planes to fly in my hanger at the moment; i do have far more planes to fly than time to fly them.
Its nice to have (beyond token grinding daily missions) reasons to not only fly fun airplanes but to pull out all the stops in a competition against other players.
Spoiler

The rewards were pretty nice too. Admittedly i already have some of the special premiums that you can get for placing in the competition. But that is ok.
The big pile of gold, premium time and loot boxes supply crates chock full of all sorts of useful stuff is nothing to sneeze at.
Spoiler
.

The only down side for me was my job insisting that i work on weekends for significant chunks of the contest time. And that isnt WeeGee's fault.

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.

Specialist Planes I have from : Japan, USA, UK, Germany, USSR, Europe
Light Fighters:   XP-31, Model 81A-1, P-40, P-51A, P-39N-1, XF15C, DH.100 F1, Fw 56, He 112, Bf 109 B / E / E-3 / F, Me 209 v4 / A, Me P.1092, I-17
Multi-Roles: Type 91, F11C-2, F4F, P-47B, Fw 190 A-1 / A-5 / D, I- 5 / 15 / 16(e)(l)

Heavy Fighters: P-38 F/J,  XP-58, Beaufighter,  Bf 110 C-6, Me 410, Do 335 A-1, Me 262, Tu-1, SE 100,

Attack Aircraft: Hs 123, Ha 137, Hs 129 A, Ju 87 G, Me 265, Me 1099 B-2

The Fall Campaign has ended! You've shown amazing mastery and perseverance and proved that real pilots can conquer all! Thank you for taking up a challenge and your involvement! The total number of your earned chevrons you can find in the dedicated article, and the results of the previous event — over here. 

 

Today I'll create a thread where you can choose your final prize for participating in the campaign if it costs fewer chevrons than you've earned.

 

Good hunting!

As we promised, here's a thread where the winners of the Campaign can choose their reward.

 

If you are happy with the prize which you should receive according to the number of your chevrons, you DON'T need to post in this thread.

This thread will be open till Monday (December, 2) at 01:00 PST / 04:00 EST.

 

We'd like to remind you, that we don't compensate the difference in chevrons, we just give you a chance to receive the more desired reward for you.

^^ Is this why there is a delay in receiving the prizes? Like you all waiting for people to respond with their wishes? Does it mean everyone gets their prizes on December 2nd? Even those that are happy with what they got? 

People started posting even though they dont want to change the plane to expedite the process.

Yes, all rewards will be charged when we have all needed data. ETA is Monday/Tuesday.

Little sad in having to wait entire Thanksgiving weekend before getting to play with the new toy. That's like 5 days, just because of the few people that would or would not want to change their prize. Sure vast majority just want their win, no change.

So there are 76 people with 4 or more chevrons, 76 potential people that can substitute their plane. Out of 76, how many willing? There are total 223 winners that are eagerly waiting to test out what they fairly won. How many people out of 76 are going to make the rest of 223 wait? 10? 15? 

Surely it is possible to separate those that want to change and those that dont.
Can we create another thread, where people can opt to receive their prize without changing and without waiting.
Now that will be something.

We waited 4 days after every event in this series for results to post and prizes to be awarded. So now with the overall campaign complete, we wait 4 days to get rewards. Sounds fair to me.

I know everyone wants instant gratification and their new shiny toys, but for an first of its kind event that they didn't have to do, I think a little patience is in order. Hopefully future event rewards will run smoother and asking for that is fine, but getting mad about it on the first try of a new type of event is like beating your kid cause they couldn't ride a bike the first time they tried, or letting them drown the first time you throw them in the deep end of the pool.

they are using an abicus.  Maybe one of us should FedEx them a caculator, you know like a TI99 or an HP-12C
