Good hunting in the sky of World of Warplanes! 

 

P.S. These bonuses stack with Premium time.

so if I have premium and I use a booster why is it that my credits and exp don't change from when I just flew with premium? shouldnt the bonuses stack? and if no, then why would anyone buy premium? because I just flew several missions with premium, these so called bonuses and the "gift" and my credits exp and pilot xp did not change from when I simply fly with premium and boosters, I have been tracking.

When I fly with premium and boosters, it seems to stack.  I put up pretty big numbers for my pilot exp (I generally only use crew boosters)

If you have Premium days it seems the 1.5 bonuses for the event are not working.  At least that is my experience.  I haven't tried boosters today.

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.  

 

 

 

I'm not german. Please leave nationality out of this "discussion" ( ?) (more like what we do here is grahpitti with punctuation, but okay, lets discuss... and gift me your wisdom)


Please get to the part where when one has "to beg" for it then still a gift? :popcorn:

"...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.


Your original post seems to infer that it doesn't classify as a gift because you have to 'work' for it, by flying.   ????

Free BOOSTERS are a gift, you say?  You do have to fly to take advantage of them, you know.  Free Premium is a gift?  You do know that you have to fly to take advantage of Premium days also.

 

This is illogical on your part.  It's like saying free Government cheese isn't free because you have to eat it yourself.

 Bonuses of a standard Premium account work only when you play a battle. The mission introduced requires you to play a battle and gives you +50% credits and experience. +50% credits and experience = Premium account.

It's a standard mission so it just adds additional 50% to your credits and experience after a battle regardless if Premium account is active or not. It's just an additional modifier and according to the data everything works as intended. I'll ask the team to check once again of course, but there seems to be no problem with this mission.

the point made and then deleted, by you, because of the negative publicity to the corporation, and accuracy of the message was that when one has to plead and whine, and beg,

A gift has to be freely volunteered, willingly, with no conditions attached. WoWP gave us those missions after many complained.

 

I correctly pointed out that according the LegaL definition of "gift", the word was being manipulated.  Just because WG "gave" it to us does not automatically make it a "gift" and to say otherwise is misleading.

 

its one thing to help people in time of need. It's quite another to profit from their misery.

I suggest then that you don't accept this 'gift' by not flying.  Stick to your principles!  The profit motive for them to give away anything if you won't accept it is beyond my comprehension.

I checked again, my usual creds in a fight with my vampire with boost and prem is between 250- 500k  my creds with this "mission" my prem and boosters were almost identical so its definitely not working. it should have resulted in an additional 50% and did not change at all. im gonna track now wwithout boosts because I do not want to waste any more boosts.

Have absolutely no idea how anything in my post could be construed to be related to anyone's nationality.  

 

My wisdom is simple.  Gifts are things people give to you that they are not obligated to give to you.  

 

You may feel :"entitled" to a gift, you might loudly demand a gift, sink to your knees and beg for a gift but those are actions you chose and create no obligation on anyone else to buy into your personal sense of entitlement.  

 

What WG owed you, or anyone else, is exactly what their agreements with you state, and I'm pretty sure those agreements do not stipulate that they are obligated to provide you with a free Premium Time equivalent benefit under any circumstances.  Hence, since there is no obligation on their part, real or implied, to provide you with a benefit which you in no way have to pay for, if they do provide you with such a benefit, it is a "Gift".

I still see "Clam a gift" when looking at the News and Information thread.  Perhaps it's because the straight i in "claim" and straight beginning to the letter m in the same word are so similar.  

 

Maybe a kerning issue...

Personally I would like to thank Bubba for the grammar lesson & clearing up that the "gift" is in fact bait from WG to get people to play their games while they are stuck at home & maybe break out the credit card while you're at it.
