The whole point is to either end up by getting absurdly lucky one match, or just be really good at the game. 

 

Average players, or just players with terrible luck aren't allowed to have nice things in WoT.

Nor should they

- LT: deal 8000 spotting damage (secondary: get 5 spotting kills) The kills part is not too hard if you are good at lights, but the 8k spotting is nearly impossible, when I first read the FTR post, I looked for replay with that amount for a half hour to no avail.
- HT: accumulate 20000 damage – either dealt yourself, or blocked by your armor, they add up (secondary: survive and win)  You don't need a tier 10 to do this, I think I have done it a few times by sidescraping with the KV-4.
- MT: destroy 3+ enemy TD’s, that are at least one tier higher than you (secondary: survive, win and deal 3k+ damage) This one looks pretty easy TBH.
- TD: deal 10000+ damage (secondary: destroy 5+ enemy tanks) This one will take some actual skill, but should be pretty easy in many T10s, I expect that some may be able to it in the SU-122-44 on a T9 match.
- Arty: be on first place in XP and damage dealt (secondary: survive) I find that this one may be difficult, either your team rolls before you can get good shots in, or you get top on a loss by death.

The light one may be more doable after the view range changes

The more I think about it the less trouble I think it will be. You'll see a lot of Maus and first thing I'll do when seeing one is to intentionally bounce a shot off of him. If he's a gentleman and gently strokes my upper plate with an AP round in return then we'll both be completing that mission...

 

No prearranged rigging, just two total strangers firing 10s of thousand of damage at each other using autoaim.

 

I have a Maus, and I like the way you think, sir.

No, this is post 8.0 as there is an AT15 in the game. Also, the T34-2 was introduced just before patch 9.0 is I remember correctly.

A) I have a replay with 14k spotting damage ( malinovka, batchat, could be done nowadays in 13-90 or ru 251)

Average players (or worse) get the better luck/rng anyway...

I'm thinking that just relaxing into driving the tier 10s I own is a better use of my time then worrying about the IM stuff and the 260.

 

Life is short.  Enjoy the tanks you own.

From what I have read they aren't doing the view range change, not anytime soon at least.

 

When testing it they ran into the problems of light tanks basically behaving like TDs and just sitting back and sniping with their superior view range.

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

As far as acquiring the 260

 

Yeah as the missions stand right now it is nearly impossible.

 

Which should come as a surprise to no one.

 

Did you really think that they would make getting a FREE TIER TEN TANK something nearly anyone can accomplish?

Even if you do own one, will it be worth it once you start playing it?

For one of the missions, one must deal and receive a combined total of 20K damage. Sounds tough right? Even a game such as this, which QB deems "the greatest T95 game of all time", would not qualify for the reward.

 

 

On the other hand, this T95 nearly managed the 20k twice.... :P

 

 

Yes, Chinesedriveby already mentioned it, but its worth mentioning twice.  Besides, his post has red text and mine doesnt, so my post is prettier and thus better so nyah! :P

you people need to make up your minds. Everyone gets all butt-hurt that someone can up and buy a tier 8 with no experience in the game and want WN8/tier progression limits, then complain that the missions for a tier 10 are too hard.

 

Just no pleasing people. everyone is for barriers until they realize it'll keep them out too.

No, its post 8.4, cause T-34-2 was not released in 7.4!

I assume that ss was back when track hits counted.  Sidescrape in front of stupid enemy team, collect Steel Wall.

 

I can't WAIT to see the general playerbase trying for these every match at the expense of trying to win though.  Particularly the TD one.  You guys have fun in tier 10 with walls of 183s and Waffles trying for the 10k.

 

Don't hold your breath. You have to get throught he Stug, T28 and T-55 missions before you're allowed to try the Obj 260 ones. I'd be suprised if more than 10% of the players get that far.

You are absolutely right. This game wouldn't qualify for the mission because the mission is for Heavy tanks and not TD's. Reading comprehension... none.

8k spotting isn't "impossible" and neither is getting 5 spotting kills in the same match.  except when every other LT in the game is trying to do the same, and at the same time mediums are pressing forward and taking away spottind damage.  my most recent hit almost exactly that much dmg assist a couple of weeks ago, but yes, the map rotation limits the possibilities:

 

 

I have only two tier 9 mediums now, and in order for me to kill 3 tier 10 tds, while at the same time competing with the other mediums, heavies, arty, and tds for dmg/kills it'd take an exceptionally lucky game.  lucky.  not skilled.  lucky.

 

my highest tier heavy is the E75.  Heavy mission just isn't going to be do-able for me.

 

I think my highest damage TD game was 7500 or so in the object 704, and the kill count was low, strike that one out too.

 

Arty.  lulz.  while I do have an FV 304 for mid-tier skirmishes, the recent RoF, and mobility nerf means I don't really play it often enough, and likely won't be.

 

since, this mission really isn't a reward for skill, and it will most likely include collusion or insane levels of luck compressed into a short amount of time, why don't they just institute a lottery?  player purchases a lottery ticket for 500,000 silver for a chance to get the tank, or some other equally arbitrary amount?
