We used to get these:

 

  • Churchill III
  • Dicker Max
  • Excelsior
  • FCM 36 Pak 40
  • Matilda IV
  • Pz.Kpfw. IV Schmaltrum
  • Pz.Kpfw. T 25
  • Ram II
  • Sexton I
  • SU-85i
  • T14
  • Type 64
  • Once we even got 2500 gold!

 

 

Now we get only these:

 

  • M22 Locust
  • M3 Light
  • Matilda BP
  • Pz. T 15
  • Pz.Kpfw. S35 739 (f)
  • SU-100Y
  • T-127
  • Type 3 Chi-Nu Kai
  • Valentine II

 

Not only are these tanks significantly worse overall, but we keep getting duplicates.  For instance, we've had the Locust 4 times in ~8 months!

 

It's been a while since I've had any incentive to grind hard during an On-Track.  Yes, we get the discounts on tanks as part of it which is great, but we also love free tanks! 

 

This isn't just a potential win for the players; it's a win for WG too!  When there's a reward tank for an On-Track that I want, that's when I'll spend most of my gold!  New crews, retraining crews, skill/perk resets, camo, etc.  If you give us a reason to play, we'll give you more money!

It's people like you, who make people like me, think that people like them, are not the people we thought they were.

I get the impression that WG don't see On-Tracks as an important tool any more: not only are the rewards pretty lame these days, but also, you don't get gold any more if you already have the reward tank.

They're maybe worth doing if you're relatively new and don't have many/any premiums, but they don't encourage most players (I suspect) to play more than they would otherwise.

The reason they stopped doing them on NA is because EU got mad because they didn't get those same rewards.

But EU constantly gets free gold rewards, which NA doesn't.

 

So atm, NA is holding the short end of the stick....

They haven't stopped doing them.  They're just skipping them for December because of lots of other events.  They also didn't have them in Oct, they only had 1 in May, none in Feb..... it's not a guarantee that there will be an On-Track every month.... though I wish there was.

I stopped doing On-Tracks when they stopped giving GOLD CREDIT if you previously own the reward tank.

I know they haven't stopped doing them, it's just they downgraded the rewards for completing them to the point where they are no longer worth doing.

All they are good for now is buying a tank that is discounted that you have held off purchasing while waiting for a sale.

A couple of times at least - I haven't finished compiling data on them all, but a T110E3 On-Track starting 28Sep14, and again for an Object 268 On-Track starting 27Apr15.

Not to mention the incentive to keep these various reward tanks in our garages to begin with.

I just got into doing the on track missions last month with M48.  It was perfect timing for me because I had already unlocked the M48 and I was just waiting for a sale.  The usual sale for tier 8 to 10 is 15% off.  But the on track gives you 30%!  It was a nice bonus to get the M22 Locust (fun tank to play).

Not only that, they halved the rewards you get at the 25k intervals and have dummied down the rewards for the weekly/daily tank type missions. We used to get 3 pieces of equipment for fulfilling the missions on 4 of the 7 days, now we just get booster packs.

Yeah the final reward is no longer worth it, but what was better was the credit boost you used to get for doing on tracks.  Now when you do an on track, you not only get a worse end reward, you also have to grind extra games in a premium tank just to get enough silver to move up the line.  You never had to do that before when the 50% credit boost was a part of the on-track.

I just want to give this another bump because the current 113 On-Track has a T-127 as a reward tank - a tank we've already seen as the reward tank 3 times in the last 5 months.

 

I will give a little bit of credit for the prior one though.  The T 50/51 On-Track Reward Tank was the Pz.Kpfw. S35 739 (f), a tank which had only been a reward tank once before, albeit, 10 months prior.

 

Let's see some of these others again for February!

 

  • Churchill III
  • Dicker Max
  • Excelsior
  • FCM 36 Pak 40
  • Matilda IV
  • Pz.Kpfw. IV Schmaltrum
  • Pz.Kpfw. T 25
  • Ram II
  • Sexton I
  • SU-85i
  • T14
  • Type 64
  • Once we even got 2500 gold!
