Seeing that WG isn't going to do carp for this game, and that I have accumulated a lot of gold over the years, pray tell me:  What should I spend it on?

 

I have a lot of the premium planes, but not a lot of the T7/T8 planes.  Is the XP58 worth it?  Do I buy gold ammo and LOL as I set the world on fire?  

 

What would you do if you were, like Scrooge McDuck and had a mountain of gold and no idea where to spend it?  

 

*Note:  Unlike Scrooge McDuck, I would gift it to some of you, but that is not available.  

 

Thanks for your input.

Invest in toilet paper futures!  I just happen to have a several lifetimes supply in my garage!  (don't ask)  I could let it go for pennies (sob) on the dollar!

Well, hell, that doesn't help me.  My dog has a toilet paper maze that we use to train him in agility.  Had to find something to do with the massive Costco-cart full of TP!

 

I am looking for something more constructive.  Like:  Do I buy a carpload of incendiary ammo just for kicks, or do I buy an ultimate plane that will disappear in 6 months when they shut this down?

 

Where, oh where, do I find the most fun with my Gold?

My first use of gold is camo and art for my planes.

 

My second use of gold is crew skills in Tanks, during the brief parts of the year when I play that crapfest.

I spent my gold specializing planes that are painful to grind but broken once Spec. So that would be the F7U and Su-10.

 

Otherwise just wait for a sale and load up on boost consumables at period II and III

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

trikke had it right!  Just call Big Bertha for a real good time!  Just if she asks, 'Does this circus tent make me look fat?'  DO NOT ANSWER!  RUN!

OK, Su-10, I have that in hangar.  Good to know...   Could be fun.

 

Meh, on second thought, Maybe after I reach one of the goals or at least get within not-so-shameful range of said goal...

 

Gawd, even with the game imploding, I am cheap.  What is wrong with me?

Buy all premiums and then use it for premium account and hangar slots. Make an all-specialist-planes-in-game collection.

Everything's stupid, everything's wrong

MGs are too weak and cannons too strong

The ju-87 is simply a waste

xp past the do-17z with great haste

I'm so glad they went with the huge effort of 2.Oh

it payed off bigly

someone should have said something back in 2018

:sceptic:


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.

True that!  Even with my significant baggage, I have decided to parse out my gold on weekends when more people are playing.  Prepare to get (literally) BURNED folks!  

 

Love,

my answer to a sub-question:  the Chain Lightning is a barrel of FUN.

 

I am loving the thing, even when the derpguns are being a pill.

 

I hit the 10k gold jackpot to afford it, usually I am spending small amounts on camo and paint for the planes that I Spec and/or fly a lot.

Oh the young and impressionable... days of past
I wouldn't be so willy nilly with all that hard earned loot

Wargaming may convert it to a new game down the road

maybe World of Starships 2120 with...

photon torpedoes to shoot space freighters

:popcorn:

btw, you may want to dust off the ol' Boobie_Tabilas nameplate

what are the chances of you getting that last strike

hehe
