I've been doing fairly well with my SPG's since the changes, but I find that even in most of my mastery matches, I'm often falling short by 200+ XP to get top experience on my team for my SPG-15.3 mission.

Looking at my other missions where I blew away the Stun and Immobilization requirements and had decent damage to boot, I notice that I have to support strong players in order to meet this experience achievement... but in doing so, I simultaneously drive up the experience of the very players I'm trying to beat on XP... both by feeding them damage from spotting with my shell, and making targets easier for them to gobble up the damage from.

So looking at this conundrum of how SPG's work now and how XP from assisted damage gets split any which way, I'm curious as to if anyone has completed SPG15.3 or SPG 15.4 since the SPG rework with the "Top XP" requirements on the two?

Concentrate on the assistance damage - because you get half the XP from that damage + your own damage XP. So you need to support the team rather than seek targets of opportunity. My issue has been getting the team to do enough damage to those vehicles stunned and immobilized cos the muppets just hide even when the target enemy vehicle is immobilized and stunned

I got SPG 8-4 the other day (be top xp on your team) in a 261.  You just need to play well, and be a bit lucky.  I actually TD'd the enemy arty at the end, which likely gave me a lot of points.

Since I completed all my SPG missions ages ago, I haven't actually been trying for any of them after the latest update, but I do believe I have completed the requirements at least once over that span. I've played mostly the M53/55 during that duration, because I believe it's the best arty after the patch, and had a few great games. I will keep an eye out for games that qualify in the future and let you know.

 

I completed my SPG 15.4 in the FV304, but I doubt it's possible in that tank any more since they truly neutered it - and changed the mission parameters.

 

From one artillery player to another, best of luck!

Confirmed... SPG-15.4 is still quite possible! I realize this is on the Test Server, and in a Ranked Battle, but it shows that it's possible to achieve the Mission requirements. This took me about 15-20 games. And yes, I was top XP and top Damage in the game with this match. IMO the CGC is not the best artillery to attempt SPG-15.4 simply because you're always hitting same-tier or lower enemy tanks, but hey, when it happens...

Keep aiming for their rear decks and back of turrets, even with the reduced damage, you stand a much better chance of hitting the Fuel Tanks, Engine and possibly Ammo Racks, all of which are decent chances of lighting a tank on fire -- that hot stuff is all yours.

SPG15 is always a "when the stars align" kind of mission as it requires a competant team(lulz), good RNG, and good MM so that matches aren't too long, and aren't too short not to mention having a team where all of them get a mediocre to average game where they don't contribute more than what you did in your arty.

 

I finished SPG15-T55a with honors less than 2 weeks after the release of 9.18 after finishing the previous 4 missions with honors. Some argue its harder than the old SPG-15 I would have to disagree because the reload and accuracy buffs make your gameplay a little more consistent for completing missions.

Except you failed the conditions of SPG 15.4 - these require you not only to be top XP on both teams but to achieve 3500 ASSISTANCE damage from stuns and yours was only 2.7k

If anything arty missions are easier now.  I had been stuck on the arty hunting +4k dmg mission for obj260, after patch I burned through all the arty obj260 missions.  Stun dmg (while useless from a game outcome perspective) is super exp.  I used a M53/55, with about a 50/50 mix of standard vs premium ammo.  

Id wager any high tier arty with a decent splash and ability to relocate to stay in the match would be cake.

Finally on this mission for Obj 260. Not looking forward to it. I do get top XP regularly in SPG, about once every 2 days. But in all my games, I think I only got 3500 stun damage once. I see this being the hardest part of the mission. It seems I always split damage between stun and tracking.

Well the missions are very easy because they only changed those in the later stages of the arty rebalance testing which led to them giving half a.ssed requirements that most players could complete with a tier 7 arty.

Okay, I managed to pull it off finally, wasn't even using an Arty I expected to be able to do it in, but when everything else is also tier X, I suppose it's not as difficult to hit the top of the XP chart.
