Thanks Wargaming and Blindfold for the bonus potential.  Captain Underpants "presumed" the battle experience and credit bonus could be stacked with a premium account.  Is this true?

 

Crates in the hangar, but I shouldn't want to waste the possibility of getting premium time from them - if the bonuses stack, they would be candidates for opening, but should they not stack, they ought be saved for later.

took a little pushing to make it happen. At least "they" (someone/anyone) listened. Lots of pilots flying, so this should help. Wg WoWP- don't stop with this. WE will be prisoners in our homes for some time.

 

Keep the good will coming!

I am glad you are doing this. We play with a lot of free to play people and the progression alone from this event will prevent burnout during this COVID-19 lockdown. Plus CRATES!

"...we want to give a gift to all of you!"

Just to be clear, a gift is usally "free". To make us work for it, is gRinDage, therefore not a gift.  Not free, not a gift. What it is, is a gesture, free BOOSTERS would be a gift. Free Premium from Ships and Tanks were gifts. Seems "the man" in WoWP does not believe in "giVing", but making us work for it.

 

Wanted to say thanks, but I will reserve my appreciation for when the gesture is reAL...  And not forced, like this gesture of WoWP- seems a llitle forced, after-the -fact, not genuine, know what I;m say'N? Didn't happen till there was noise. Want love? Give love.

"+50% battle experience"" +50% credits" "Play a battle" "Repeatable mission"

Think about those things. You play a battle. You get the bonus. Play another battle, get the bonus. And so on...

What were you hoping to use premium for outside of playing battles? That's all it does.

gonna guess that your post is nOt directed at OP, but given the sequnce, I a little suspicious. So let me point out that Ships (can't speak for Tanks) has on a weekly basis "gifted" out not only "free premium" (and your anology is really good btw), but also: GOLD. SIGNALS, Camoflage, Consumables - etc, etc etc... just for loggin in. No strings, No grinDage.

so yeah, Premium is similar to what has been euphamistically refered to as gifted, but a better "gift" in line with other Wg Gifts, would be, as mentioned : bOOsters, consumables, XP, gold, etc. etc. ect. 

 

And not having to beg...

Yes.  Plus free crates.  I, for one, have no problem with the word 'free' in this context.  Thank you, WG.

Stay safe and healthy, pilots! And... stay at home if possible :)

 

Good hunting in the sky of World of Warplanes! 

 

P.S. These bonuses stack with Premium time.

Why do I keep reading this as: "Clam a gift..."  

 

I know they did it right, but when I see it in the forum "new items" or whatever it is, I see "Clam".  

 

I think I am seeing clams where they do not exist.  Day 11 of lockdown.  I need help!

I am curious as to what benefit you get from saving and opening them later?  Maybe I am missing something?  as usual

So, the requirement is to fight a battle and you receive the same bonuses you would receive if you have purchased Premium Time.  So ... the whole "fighting a battle" is the burden you speak of ?? :amazed:

 

Well, when anyone gives me something that I don't need to do anything but play the game to enjoy, that qualifies as a "gift' in my dictionary. 

 

TY WG :great:

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.

Well there is gifts and then there are better gifts.  So we are, in fact, complaining that we didn't receive the gifts we really wanted, just Premium Time equivalent bonuses instead, which is, btw, essentially what they did in Ships and Tanks..  

 

HOW DARE THEY!!!!  :izmena::kamikaze::angry:

 

The other "bonuses" you speak of are event related bonuses to entice players to play the game.  In Ships, it's all related to the introduction of the European Destroyers branch.  Once that event is gone, so will the login bonuses, at least until they get ready to release another new line or something similar. 

 

Point is, those gifts have nothing to do with the coronavirus and exist independently of it or any reaction WG is making related to it.  It's not really germain to this discussion.
