Agree, this event might be good for new players, but there is nothing here for the players that had played the old version.  Most of us have all the planes listed and nothing to entice us to want to do the event.  Another failure on WGs part.

You both need to stop your whining.

This is a great deal for bringing in seals so we can practice our croft.

Besides us old timers can collect what we can then sell it on the black market for a higher price.

 

Come on. We can fly the listed aircraft and get 50% more battles XP +

sounds like a bonus to me.

A reason to fly listed aircraft and be the only ones in queue ( when the last time you saw 2 P38F in the same battles ( same side )

Just think of all the NEW players you can pounce on with those multi-skilled pilots working towards that 1million XP point skill.

 

Or selling the long gun barrels because you already have them on every " Elite " and " Specialized " plane.

 

We won't mention the seal clubbing of all those NEW heavy pilots for the small hitman fee of 25% more credits.

 

Look at the bright side but wear sunglasses

Well, I guess I'm finally buying that F7F and maybe P-38

I'll take any monetary relief I can get.  I see people in F7F regularly.  I imagine it's a lot like the Mosquito?  Heavies aren't my style, but it's a good time to acquire.

The TigerCat is the "swing and a miss!" member of the US HF line.  It lacks the agility of the Pancake or Lightnings, pretty much just straightline speed (until uptiered, then you get run over) and decent guns.  I really don't like it much, but every once in a while I get a good game out of it.  If anyone can tell me what I'm supposed to do in a TigerCat vs a 109Z, I'm all ears.  :sceptic:

It feels like the XP-75 and VB-10.

Guns are somewhere between the other two. Mobility is similar to both.

Be careful to check pricing before you buy.  Consumables are supposed to be 1/2 off but they are full price in my Depot.

T7 is such a wannabe tier       it's a steep uphill climb against T8s, if pilots and equipment are 'identical'         with a few exceptions, most are just T6.5s

 

eh, i'd rather spend an 8 skill german pilot on un-mothballing the Zwilling than wasting a US pilot on the f7f        i'd never fly it, prob       

 

i think it's damn good looking, though       i could buy it, tart it up in garish paint and nose-zart, and just look at it       fly it in the Fourth of July airshows       drap it in bunting

When I loaded the F7F I was disappointed to find that I don't have a special camo for it.  I had to go for the regular all-black camo and some nose stripes.  OK, but not a "tart it up" look.

 

I was flying the Mosquito a lot a couple weeks ago, and it feels similar.

Did the event with the P-38J.

Finally got it specialized and finished the event.

Well, not so much finished but completed the 2 limited events.

I've been surprised by the lack of folks flying these qualifying planes today.  Seems to show a certain disinterest in this 'event'.

I don't think most of the non-forum people know about it, and many of them are busy grinding or clubbing as usual.

Convinced me to get the XP-58 with the gold that I had. So far so good, I actually like it.
