that's what I was thinking.  last time they had a sale like this it was both period 2 and period 3 so you got 2 pieces but this sale says 1x.  The icon for the turret site is different for both periods and the icon they are using is the one from period 3.

I assumed the deals were similar to last time, with both period 2 and period 3 equipment included. I wonder why they only included one this time.

I like the idea of selling special projects equipment but bundling it with the gold makes it ridiculously expensive.  I don't need that much gold, just give me the gear

Exactly. What does a long time player even need with gold? You already have the regular premiums you want. You either earned both of the free premium planes or you earned enough tokens where only a little bit of gold will complete the campaigns. So they really expect a player to buy 50 bucks of gold to get period 2 equipment like this? I mean I know the gold price is exactly the same as regular gold price, but whats the point?

 

You know wargaming this is probably the last month that everyone is going to be cooped up at home. And this month so far you offer a really lame weekend mission and now a gold enticement most people don't even need. Really? I mean I love the bundled low tier starter pack deal. But you do realize that most of us will be called names and ostracized by this tiny community if we just spam low tier OP planes? We will lose respect that way. Heck I will even respect myself less if I spam the XP-31 or I-5 shikas. They are great planes and thanks for the sale but they really don't help my account that much, especially with the community. Heck you can't even complete mission in planes under tier 4. 

 

Please tell me that you will offer some better things this last month of Covid enforcement shut down. Because panda is getting sad over here and he doesn't want to be sad.

It's just a picture :) There's Preiod II equipment in these bundles.

Does "Special Project of USA" and "of USSR" mean those items can only be mounted on aircraft from those two nations respectively?

 

Also, from my perspective as a newer player that wants to "grind" some tech lines but just fly certain planes in others, gold is required to convert otherwise useless aircraft experience as I continue to fly certain aircraft for fun.  Am I incorrect in this?  Also what does it mean to "spam lower tier OP planes"?  What is an OP plane?  Wish there was a basic guide for the forums that explains the acronyms and slang.  I appreciate the fact that WoWP regularly introduces special programs.  I do wish the daily missions for tokens were less focused on victory - only because for a new player like myself, to fly well AND win can take forever [it seems] sometimes, especially with all the organized flights?  Or is the organized flights thing just my perception?  They sure seem coordinated at times.

 

I am interested in a clan to get better but I also want this to stay fun.  Best wishes to all.

You can use Special Project equipment on any plane, regardless of nationality.  It just has to have a slot for it and be in the same Period.

Gold is required to convert plane XP to free XP but plane XP is hardly useless.  You can use it to research the next plane up in the tier.

OP means Over Powered.  Spamming one means to fly it exclusively or almost so.

Flights WILL increase your win ratio.  Sending you an invite to our clan.

 

Win/loss ratio is not important to us.  We just wish to have decent, tolerant human beings.

You are where the knowledge base is, the Forum.  It puts you way ahead of most of the newcomers who don't bother with it.  Gratz!

Captain U here is an interesting question... ... ...

 

Aircraft XP is only usefull on that plane as long as there is a plane one T up that needs to be reasearched, once that has been done any aircraft XP is tied up until you convert it to free XP by using gold.  So 1 gold converts 25 XP one for one.  Now when you use free XP to accelerate a pilot/gunner to the next skill point it takes one free XP for 5 pilot/gunner XP. 

 

Sooooo... is the same 1 for 5 used when you have checked accerated training for the pilot/gunner which puts all the XP for the battle to the pilot/gunner???
