Luckily for me I'm a spaztic grinder which means I have a tank out of pretty much every single tech tree in existence. I actually have a tier 6 in almost every nation that I need to grind anyway and for some nations 2 or 3 tanks (not to mention some fun elited tier 6 tanks I keep around...for fun, but in terms of this mission they will be giving me more x2). I'm definitely going for this, even if I don't succeed I'll get a bunch of free prem days out of it plus it gives me an excuse to grind tanks I actually need to work on. So after running all my X2 wins and grinding up my T-150/T-43 tanks my results are this:

 

Day 1, Dec 16


USSR: 27,654
Germany: 2,847

US: 1,886
France: 1,990

Britain: 3,698

China: 2,240

Japan: 0 (well duh)


Total: 40,315

 

I did another 10 000 xp in some tier 5's I want to get to tier 6 to help with this (for the free day prem).

Finally back home from work today!

 

Now I get a few more hours to put in for grinding up to German tier 6 & USA tier 6. I'll then buy the sixes at a discount. The Russians are basically done for me except a few more games to top them off.

 

Life is good...

Thanks for the support and updates from those of you participating!  Here is my update for my first night.....

 

My progress thus far:

American line: 3,313 / 100,000 (2 battles in Hellcat)

USSR line: 15,155 / 100,000 (18 battles in SU-100)

French line: 4,107 / 100.000 (20 battles in AMX 12t)

German line: 0 / 100,000

British line: 0 / 100,000

Chinese line: 0 / 100,000

Japanese line: 0 / 100.000

Total: 22,575 / 700,000

 

I played for about 4 hours, got 40 battles in, and a total of 22,575 xp.  If every night is like tonight I will complete this challenge in 30 more days.....perfect.

 

This was my first time every playing the AMX 12t, and I'm pretty terrible in it.  Was averaging 416 xp/round.  I did unlock the engine and suspension though which seems to help, and went ahead and dropped 300 gold on the crew to get them to 100% which helped as well.  I need to watch some videos though and figure out how to play this thing properly.  My win rate was I lost 12 of my first 14 battles in it.  But then I bought the better suspension and got a 1st class mastery badge my 15th round, so things are looking up.  W/R after 20 battles is 38% - still terrible, but too small a sample size really.  I played well in my Hellcat and SU-100 as always - increasing my average xp/round slightly in each.

Hey Peter, I posted on the wrong thread (so many similar), so here it is again, my current update & projections. Basically, the next silly statement I've seen from posters is that if you don't have a tier 6 you have to forget about the IS-6... I stated:

 

I had to grind out almost every single one from near scratch, cept the Russians as I had the T-50-2 one day... replaced by MT-25.....  I've been playing tier 8 games to get high free-exp and then spending that to get the lower JUNK out of the way from teir 2 to teir 4. Then use a tier 5 to grind the tier 6 super quick too. Goes quit fast when you get thrown into tier 10 games with your T8, and get the exp bonus for killing higher tears [sic].

 

This morning I will be completing the 100K Chinese part (yeah, I'm not really doing them in proper order according to hardware discounts, lol). So don't do as I do.... but I have my reasons.

I think there is some truth to that - we are all going to have to grind through the Japanese line which will inflate the required time a little, but you will get 5k free xp from each line that you complete, so if you need another 25k to complete a line you will get it just doing this challenge.  Looking at my numbers, I am going to have to play at least some rounds in some tier Vs to unlock at least one or two tanks, but I think I can still manage.

And off I go, just doing doubles on most of my tier 6's, for day 1...

I expect my progress to be slower than usual on the 18th, 24th, 25th and 31st due to other commitments, and possibly on the 1rst, 8th and 15th (Although I cant imagine I wont be done before the 15th, just on paranoid principle.)  That's days 3,9,10,16,17,24 and 31.

 

Edit-  Day 7 got cut short by christmas shopping and 8.10.  Day 8 also short due to shopping. I really should have figured that ahead of time.  No matter, well ahead of schedule. :)

I have one as well.  If you already have the tank they will give you the gold equivalent (11,800 if you complete while the IS-6 is at full price).

 

 

+1 for everyone helping and participating!

Finally, keeping every tank under the sun pays off! I'm gonna try this for awhile and see if I can stand the grind, having most every tier 6 tank (all nations) helps with the tedium, as well as liking mid-tier play. I don't get it when people turn the hours needed to win this contest into dollars, aren't you going to play anyway? And for free? What gives? WG is actually PAYING us to play now for a change (even if it's a pittance, it's more than I normally make while playing tanks!). Plus I have a job where I'm on standby a lot, so I'm actually doing the heavy grinding while AT WORK!

 

So, here's my progress after one day (rounded)...

 

Apple Pie: 10k

Borscht: 10k

Fish & Chips: 10k

Escargot: 10k

Sausage: 10k

General Tso's Chikin: 5k (rough with only 2 tanks)

 

Chin up fellas!

Am I a masochist with that many scouts on my lineup?

 

Well to some degree if one enjoys Scouts, then yes, we're masochists.

 

Good luck to all that are up to the challenge/time commitment alas, I can't/won't participate in this mission:

  • American line:   Hellcat, nearly 3 perks, won't be an issue for the most part
  • USSR line:   Su-100, 2 perk crew, elite, won't be an issue for the most part
  • French line:  Zero, zip, zilch, nada - never played a French Tank, and not looking to add to the project list of my garage
  • German line:  I have the Dickermax, but apparently Premiums don't count.  I too have the flakbus, but having enough fun that I don't feel like moving up at the moment.
  • British line:  Cromwell probably not a problem, but I try not to 'grind it' - leaves a lot of xp dependent upon pubby team mates.
  • Chinese line: Also have the 59-16 and the Type 64, but the '64 doesn't cont.  Probably not a problem as I will most likely play it for a double whenever I log on
  • Japanese line:  uhm yeah.  No current plans to start the line

 

My honest hope is that a lot of the player base does play their tier 6's during this time frame, and that they get sucked up into the Tier 7/8 battles where I will be spending most of my play time during the next 4 weeks worth of battles.  That T-44 is just barely not stock, and same goes for my Indien Panzer and I'd rather they face hoards of tier 6's than tier 10's  :trollface:

I'd like to help too:

 

Minimum wage 7.25

Minimum hours to be Part-time: less than 35 hours a week (Department of Labor)

Gross Pay in 31 days: (best case) 34*7.25*4 = $986

IS-6 cost: $50.92 (currently in gift shop)

 

986 > 50.92

 

986 / 50.92 = 19 IS-6's

 

For those that already have a job, ok, I get that, except when are you going to find the time?

Going to post running totals here.

 

~~~~Running totals:

Russia-----------100,000

Germany--------100,000

US----------------100,000

UK----------------100,000

France-----------100,000

China-------------100,000

Japan-------------100,000

 

XP by day / battles

Day 1-------40,118 / 43

Day 2-------28,092 / 32

Day 3-------16,562 / 14

Day 4--------33,302 / 33

Day 5 -------28,554 / 30

Day 6--------80,811 / 102

Day 7--------39,235 / 41

Day 8--------40,401 / 40 (31 battles in Japan and premium tanks)

Day 9--------18,796 / 14 (20 battles in Japan)

Day 10 thru 13 ----92,198 did not come to the website over Christmas. Finally reached tier 6 in Japan and had a good number of games.

Day 14-------13650 / 18

Day 15--------8,648 / 12

Day 16--------0

Day 17--------45,995 / 25 (x5)

Day 18 - 20 --0

Day 21---10,578 / 16

Day 22----10,345 / 7

Day 23 - 27 took a break

Day 28 -------19,606 / 27

Day 29--------41,496 / 51

Day 30--------35,972 / 44

Took a break so as not to finish while the IS-6 is on sale.

 

Tanks used : (day back in the garage)

Russia: T-150, SU-100, KV-1S, KV-2, M-25, A-43,  T*34-85(day 2)

Germany: VK3601, Nashorn, VK 2801, Hummel, VK30.02M, JadgPZ IV(day 3), VK30.001p (day 4)

US: M4A3E8, M6, M18, Jackson (day 7)

UK: AT-8, FV304, Churchill VII (day 6),Cromwell (day 15)

France: ARL 44, AMX 13 F3 AM, VRL 39 (day 11)

China: Type 58, 59-16

Japan: Chi To

 

So I have all of tier 6 unlocked except a Russian Arty and Japan. Will rebuy them as I go and as they go on sale. So this will not be easy during the holidays. If I were playing my normal sessions this mission is very doable.

 

A real Key is going to be getting as many doubles along the way as you can. The more tier 6 tanks you have the easier this is going to be. Finishing Russian Germany and the US very early (day 13 or sooner) will also help.

 

Good luck!

 

So I still have about 100k to go on day 28! Yikes may have taken to long of a break (I blame Star trek online!) So will need to knuckle down over the next few nights and finish this.

 

So last day 35,972  to go..... Not easy but should be able to do that tonight.

 

Total battles to finish 717 in 17 gaming sessions at tier 6. Does not include the battles needed to grind the Japanese line up to tier 6.

 

Grats to everyone who finished. For me it was worth the 11,800 gold and a garage slot.

Did about 3.3 k on all nations, except for the Soviet Union, where I did just over 10k. So basically just keeping pace at this point.

I just wonder if the 3.3k is a good idea because when the jpn tree come... it wont be 30 days left to grind 100k xp in that line... it will be less time AND only 1 tank tier 6 for the grind. Simple math.... 80 battles to get 100k. Each battle lasting about 10min... so its 80 x 10 = 800 minutes =~  13 hours of grinding. It will be PITA

 

being realistic... 100k/ 800xp per battle =~ 125 battles x 10 minutes = 20 hours.

My casual style has me far below everyone.  Some of you are going to have countries done in a couple more days.   And here I thought I was doing alright.

 

I still think this is a rediculously easy mission, except for the Japanese line.

10 minutes a battle is not accurate.

You will have 3 weeks on the Japanese tanks. Hopefully by then you will have Russia Germany and the US nearly done.

LOL it looks like you play normally just as much as I do. Just play tier 6 during your normal game time.
