Very overwhelming. Wall of text. Too much. 

Would have been better to spread the joy around, spread it over the entire month of December. Can't even comprehend what is being given.

Well, I looked over everything including the YAK mission and am grateful that WG has put on a Christmas special thingee.  

 

But I am totally bummed that there are no CANDY CANES no REINDEER PILOTS OR ICE SCULPTURES!!!!   I DEMAND A RECOUNT!!!!!

What, we didn't get to vote??  That explains it, the whole thing was TOTALLY RIGGED!!!!   :angry:  Hamhock Jones, where are you when I really need you!!!  *grrrr*

 

Honestly, last year's event was AMAZINGLY FUN!!  I just loved picking up those candy canes and all the Christmasy background and taking my reindeer out for a spin just always makes me giggles.  

 

The stuffs is fine, but BRING BACK THE FUN!!!   

 

 I'm warning you, don't make me mad, you wouldn't like me when I'M MAD!!!  *grrrrrr*  Biplane Girl Smash!!!  :kamikaze:

You can lead a mule to water but you cant make them drink.

Basically; if you have been saving up gold for a special purpose  (getting premium aircraft, hanger slots, barracks room, cool paint jobs etc )
[Edit:or took advantage of the Aces Special version of the December Deals ($60 worth of gold, + 25 really lucrative loot boxes and 20 more of the normal lootboxes you get every week if you log in and have one 3000 point battle every day. less than 50 cents each) still in the premium shop until Dec 20]

and just been waiting for a sale ... The days between the 20th of December and the 3rd of January will be the time to spend some of it. 

With more to come later on in January. So maybe dont spend it all in one place. 

Also spending a lot of that time just being a Free2Play-er can net you a fat stack of cool stuff that is normally the exclusive purview of Wallet Warriors.

Well reading is a very useful skill to have.  

 

It's kind of weird actually, and tells me I must be getting older than I'd like to be.  At work, people actually direct these incredibly boring contracts for me to read just because I know how to actually read it and understand what it says.  Ok ok ok, I've had lots of practice but it's still incredible to me how many people just can't be bothered to read stuff.  It's like it has to be in a video or in a cool picture book I might have given to my girls when they were young.

 

If I can't glance at it and instantly comprehend it, then I can't be bothered.  

 

Just drives me a bit nuts is all ... sooo ...

I've been waiting for a discount on hangar slots since May. The premium aircraft sales are a nice bonus.

Would if I could.  It all comes down to what I can access and from where. 

 

I can reach the forum from work during things like little breaks, lunch, etc so I can post on the forum regardless of how busy things are normally.  But I'm working very long hours and the only place I can actually pull up WOWPs is at home, and honestly, once I get home, all I really have time for is to eat and try and get as much sleep as possible before the next day kicks off.  I'm also afraid that this extends into my weekends sooooo ... I'd really like to fly more, but I'm far less effective in my flying when I'm asleep.  :playing:

Never. 

 

Honestly, it's not going to happen unless WG decides to implement a "Planes Only" premium time offering.  If they do, they might offer it as an initial offer in order to get you hooked on it so that you'll pay real money the following period (usually around a year).  That's what they did in Tanks and Ships and, if they take that step, they might do that here.  

 

Otherwise, don't hold your breath.  :B

It’s gonna be a bit harder than last year to “immerse (myself) in the “magical atmosphere”” without a Winter hangar.

An average player with an average goal: greatness, someday. Today, mediocrity will have to suffice. But no matter, I will always play to the best of my ability, and I will always strive to make the best of my ability just that little bit stronger and better.

We have premium time sales quite frequently on WOWP, I think it was summer the last one we had. As well, santa bags are a -rich- source of Premium time. Ask Bomdude about his experience with those last year. I think he's still running Premium time from those and he got a bunch of planes, an insane amount of gold and free XP to boot.

Technically, BB3_Oregon_Steel is right. We've never had discounts on Premium Time alone. Though we do have special offers with premium time and additional loot that costs less than if it is purchased separately.

Fair enough, I count that as a "sale". I can see where others wouldn't.
