Ok, been playing for a few years. One thing that has never been clear is missions. wth?

 

I need a clear list of available missions based on the vehicles I have available. Maybe a flowchart if one mission leads to another mission.  

 

But I keep finding out by accident that some bizarre mission has been going on for weeks and I have no idea which nationality, which tanks, and what the hell I need to do.  Get a non tech guy to figure this out and make a chart or something that us non-IT people can figure out what the y'all require for what rewards...

I want to point at you and laugh, but honestly I'm having a ton of trouble figuring out what exactly is going on too. Really wish they'd simplify it.

Click on the mission, click on the button that shows which tanks do it, and then deselect "Only show tanks in your Garage". Or just play around with the filters; and you'll quickly be able to find which tanks can or can't do it.

 

I do agree that it could be better designed though.

This!  It kind of works, but man, it's pretty cryptic at times.

I suspect they feed the missions through some really bad translator tool, so what we get is incomprehensible.

So not the only one confused by the drunken slaughter of the new missions tab, good to hear. I normally just read the main page when the missions surface but even then its confusing and I'm an IT guy....

wait are you referring to the tank rewards missions?

http://tankrewards.com/

 

scroll down, they will list the missions available and when they become available. simple really.

Frankly, it would be hard for the missions to be less clear.  Not only are they pointlessly separated into multiple huge frames per mission, each with with minimal info, the frames aren't necessarily in order when you work through them.  There is no reason every mission couldn't be in a single frame with all the info in one consistent format.

 

"Name of Mission"            (# done)/(# possible)

"Action to complete"

(progress bar)

"eligible tanks"

"reward per iteration"

"reward for max iterations (if applicable)"

"flavor"

 

Edit: Tankrewards.com has something close to this format.

 

I just looked at the missions in-game and there are two glaring problems that can be easily fixed.  First, get rid of the "counter" missions.  Roll them into the main mission description.  They serve no purpose but to confuse.  Second, list the nation, type and tier requirements on the face of the mission.  I shouldn't have to go to a different screen to see that French tanks of Tier IV and up are required for French Resistance II.*

 

* Why weren't French tanks required for French Resistance I?  Meh.

I've totally stopped trying to figure out what the missions are in-game.  The new interface is that bad.  I find it easier to go to the website and search that way.

I've got to the point where I don't even bother with missions anymore ... and even don't bother to check why I got free stuff for doing something I wasn't trying to do anyway.

I totally agree with you Dunderberg! It is very difficult to understand how missions work.

I started two weeks ago and have no problem with the missions or campaigns, however, I fully agree that the missions and the campaign need a redesign. Thankfully 9.22 and a full engine upgrade is inc within 3 months so maybe they touched up the UI as well. Either way they both suck. That and the "new" and "improved" matchmaking. Its all garbage. A step in a better direction but garbage nonetheless

I wish you didn't have to click out of the garage screen to see the missions available for the tank you have selected.

After almost 40k battles, I still cant decipher what missions give what, when, and with what tank. Its like WG doesnt want us to know. You have to click on this then a token then some arrow and get a tiny dropdown box thats not easy to understand.

 

At least Niantic fine tunes their interface and it easy to understand.
