I think they changed something with the missions. There is a mission available now called Festival Tools that has the pin-up emblem that wasn't there this morning when I posted those 2 pictures with the same conditions - 3000 points in a victorious battle - otherwise I would have gotten both at the same time. The Snow Rumble mission that gives you the tree emblem and the 20k plane xp was also not a pre-req for Festival Tools because I won the first game I played this morning and got the 20k and tree emblem, and then got my x5 on a few other planes before running some errands.

I got exciited when I saw "emblem" in the rewards, but after some confusion I figured out that it was the same emblem I already got a year or two ago.

Premium plane prices are not discounted currently. I would like to buy the P-51K but the price is the regular 6000 gold.

The discount is only "in game" ... though purchase in Depot. The gold price on the web plane info pages is still the regular price.

I bought some planes and got the 50, 30 or 15% discounts.

In game under the Specials tab it says the Bf109 E-3 is on sale for 50% off, 850 gold, but I can't buy it in game. Doesn't show up in the depot. Too bad cause I have the special pilot somehow.

It was listed mistakenly, as the Bf 109 E-3 is a special plane available only as a part of special offers. It will appear in the Premium Shop this month together with special pilots.

^^  new folks, watch for this. ^^       

 

and it sounds like the Dunkirk Spit and pilot might become available again, too?

Hopefully, I will finally get my crack at the Hurricane Ia.  If not, I will certainly be getting the 109E-3 pilot regardless.  I've long regretted only getting the Spit Ia pilot.

Yep, planes should come together with their pilots. :)

If we already have the pilots in question, can we get a second set of them? 

Second question related to the first... These pilots are REALLY fun to use in the airplane lines and their associated playstyles they are made for.
(Bf 109+Spitfire and Bf110, IL-2 and P-47) 

Has any thought been put into Valkyrie/Ace Pilots for other lines? 

Perhaps something historic like John Braham for the Mosquito?

Or even Maj. "Bing-Bang" Bong in a P-38.
A self admitted "bad shot". Yet got the most American air to air kills in WW2. He would fly so close that he would regularly end up flying into the pieces of the enemy plane he was shooting at. He even counts one air to air collision as a "probable" kill.   At least, according to wikipedia.

(If that isnt the spirit of WoWP v 2.x then i dont know what is.)


 

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.

I hope the pilots won't be bonus. I already have the planes but would like to purchase the bundles for the pilots.

the girls have been offered in a bundle of just them.
already trained at a 100% efficiency in a tier 5 or 6 tech tree airplane. If you dont have the plane you can train them for something else just like any other pilot.

The boys also have been offered in a bundle by themselves.
Each one comes with a unique, unremoveable, and very powerful skill that offers a "mastery" of either the Spitfire 1a or the Bf109 E-3.
Because of this they have also been bundled up with those planes on occasion.


THe last time i recall seeing them for sale ... the boys and girls could be purchased in a bundle.
If you already have some of them for whatever reasons you wound up getting a normal pilot with 5 skill points ready for you to spend any way you want.

No, it's impossible to have a couple of identical pilots, you can have only one Charlotte or Mary :)

As far as I know, you'll be able to get the pilots even if you've already had the planes.

Ok, just a few words and this event winds down. 

 

1) As I've said elsewhere, this event really lacked the Christmas feeling that I really treasured from last year's event.  That did cost you a bit of money since I never really got into the "shopping" spirit. 

2) Not being able to gift the Christmas crates was a horribly bad idea and this one really did cost you money.  I didn't by a single one where I purchased quite a few Santa Bags last year.  Bad decision, lost revenue on your part but more money still in my bank so there is that.  :great:

3) The flying events.  This wasn't nearly as fun as chasing down Candy Canes and Ice Sculptures last year, but the rewards were attainable enough and enticing enough to get me into my plane far more frequently and for longer than I would normally.,  I was particularly pleased to chase after tokes in Token Rush events since I can never get those in my regular flying (or I should say very rarely) and chasing after the supply drops (Treasure Chest!!!  Yay TREASURE!!! :izmena:)  was kind of fun as well.  

4) I did take advantage of the winter sale on premium aircraft and purchased a couple of T5 and lower planes to fill out my collection a bit.  

 

So, mixed bag guys, some things were nice and appreciated, others were total faceplants and cost you money.  It was nice to see some effort and thought put into this, but really, next time around, you seriously need to up certain aspects of your game. 


"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.

They made money hand over fist on these crates. The fact that you could not gift them was annoying, but they sold a TON. Really.   :teethhappy:
