I finally figured it out. When I go to Upgrades and see my equipment, above them is a "Stock" and "Specialist" choice and somehow it was stuck on the Stock setting. When I clicked on Specialist the equipment slots changed and all went unlocked and empty so I could transfer and add the new equipment.

 

Thanks to all who posted suggestions.

 

That's excusable for a player with 10 battles under his belt.

Oh, wait...

What? Aren't admins being financially compensated for their hard work keeping websites with a BBS clean with everyone adhering to the proper etiquette? Just because I and others who have gone off the rails a few times shouldn't drive out the WoWP players that decide they want to be more than just a regular player. The passion to this game should sustain them through thick and thin.

 

For the others who have asked, I flew my Me 265 through the normal grind to get to specialist status (no shortcut with currency), only to find the equipment slots still locked which hasn't ever happened before. I just checked which status is activated by clicking on "stock" in the upper right corner, which brings up a window that has a NEXT button to upgrade to "Ellite", which also has a NEXT button to upgrade to "Specialist". Doing that and 4 equipment slots are still locked. I'm maxed out on aircraft equipment upgrades so that's not it either. Must be another bug. Looks like I'll have to submit a trouble ticket soon if it stays this way (SIGH!).

 

LOL (mostly humerous I think) what Losttwo said. Wg better not be punishing me. He of all players should not get me thinking about another Wg conspiracy against me. That's like poking an alligator right now (I'm in SW Florida and it's gator mating season) and wondering how safe doing this is.

blindfold isn't even really the NA admin.  She's the EU admin and is stuck with us by default.  NA has run off all the others.

Actually, WG completely shut down the WOWP NA crew and transferred all responsibility to EU. This was a couple years ago. The players did not drive them away, WG made a financial decision to cut the NA WOWP staff to zero.

What? I know I've given Blindfold a headache or two (or more) with previous postings but it's not her fault. It's the decision making team at Wg and more specifically Persha Studia for including way too high of rng in this game (and other coding bias). They (the devs) should take all our feedback and make game changes that we want and not just ignore us as they are currently doing.


You've got to grind, grind, grind...

You're pretty much the only player on the forums that CONSISTENTLY complains about too much RNG, server bias, coding bias, etc.

 

Yes, there is an RNG factor to this game (just as there is in RL), but it's NOT tilted or weighted in any particular direction, for or against.   It just is.  Deal with it or move on, stop expecting the devs (or more properly, corporate) to care.   If they haven't responded so far, odds are they're not going to respond in the future.

 

You do know the definition of insanity, right?

OUR?  WE?  US?  As far as I can see, that should read  MY, I, and ME.  Your constant carping is not only futile it is very annoying.  No wonder they ignore YOU.   

I recently suggested that they remove the pop up of Millie every time we load into the hangar.  A few hours later it was gone.  They do not ignore us, just you and I don't blame them a bit.

Yes but my way sounds more dramatic.  The fact is, that crying about blindfold isn't going to help anyone....especially since WG EU could easily say forget those guys.  Yes, she's doing her job.  Yes, she gets paid.  But we're an after thought.  Ripping into her is just going to get us looked at for the bare minimum, which we're probably already getting.  Blindfold is the only advocate we have.

Exactly that! 1+ from me :great:

The question then comes to mind. Why would you continue to play "Stock" (Elite) over Specialist? Why two setups? Does a plane really need "two" equipment configurations? When you run "Stock" (Elite) does it hide the wings icon over your plane (ie incognito?)

Yes - flying in stock config removes the wings. You sacrifice quite a lot of capability in exchange for being a less visible target

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

i have seen known pilots driving non-specced planes     we all have     and they still do well

 

i'm not good enough to do that       certainly not good enough to give up on extra equipment slots, just to lose those wings

 

do we think that bots are coded to attack specced planes first?     that could be a good reason to roll 'em back to elite
