I suppose that means that WG rewards the guys that have been here for a long time?

If you have all of the low and midtier planes already, you'll only get higher tier planes or the gold equivalent

and it's no secret that giving a high tier plane at random to a new pilot is a waste.    worse than a waste, it also sabotages better pilots flying at those higher tiers with him

but I get it, it's got to be frustrating

I blew my college fund on loot boxes

now I'm too stupid to realize what's happening

... payday is friday, I'll make it back, I'm due

:facepalm:


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

So I read this first hand account of a famous WWII pilot.  He went to the wing CO and said "Sir!  When I fly there are some pilots that are really good, and some that really suck.  The new guys seem to really suck.  I respectfully request that you only let guys fly that are seasoned veterans!!!  If they don't know what they're doing, keep them in the schoolhouse.  I don't care if we have planes with no pilots.  Just don't put them in at tier 8!!!  If they have no combat experience, just keep them in the school house because I might die.  Tell the other side to do the same.  That way, everyone in the next battle are seasoned veterans!  It's more realistic that way.  Don't you think?  More realistic!  And then if I die, at least everyone on my team was worthy of my death!”

I only got 3 planes out of crates so far:

First was He-100D (T.V) next was Me-109TL (T.VIII) and latest was Ki-5 (T.II)

 

But i don't spend a lot of money on the game since 2.0

In my experience holiday crates have always been worth their price.

My post from 25 July disappeared.  Just says *edited* now.  It was critical but fair.  Yes the Holiday Crates will give you more gold and XP for your buck.  Much more so after you have the lower tier planes.  But fishing for the higher tier aircraft via crate purchases is a fools errand.  I was that fool and spent a lot of money on my experiment.  I posted that information because I wish someone had posted it for me.  But now you can't read it.

Wayback machine is the way to go.  I thank dityboy for this gem:

To reiterate:

 

This bundle is way overpriced, like pretty much all the store items have become over the years.  I think it was 2015 or 2016 when I got a year premium for $50something CDN.  That was universal, not this WOT/WOWS/WOWP individual Prem time.  To each their own though.

Indeed - there was one point back then where I had more than 900 days of premium time on my account.  Shared Premium Time between the games which I bought back when I played Warships is the primary reason why I ever tried Tanks and then Warplanes.

Prem planes should get rerolled and compensated for in gold but instead, you just get other stuff and the prem planes you already own never come up in the crates. I got all the low tier prems from daily rewards I'd basically get a surplus of equipment if I bought a lot of these.
