I have finished all missions up to and including Day 12, except one.

 

Ninety K damage in one day was too much for me and I missed day 10 on the T34B.

 

How are you progressing? 

 

What tanks are you using for what missions?

 

Any strategies you are employing?

 

Hints on how to deal ever increasing damage towards the Schwartzpanzer 58?

I gave up on the Schwarz missions because my only tanks for it are the Schwarzpanzer, Hetzer, and Dicker Max. Not happening.

I'm 12/12 for the T34B and IS-6B. I've been using my T20 for a lot of the T34B missions, ones that include winning and killing tanks. Threw my AMX 50 100 in for a game or two.

For the IS-6B I used the IS-7 for a couple, but the win missions I delegate to my Rudy, since it's easier to carry.

Decent for real life. I'm on track to get the Mutz (idc its a mutz) and T34. I already have an IS-6. Don't really want to play that right now given current status of the IS-6.

So far I've done all of the IS-6 and T34 missions. I narrowly missed the goal for yesterday's mission on the T34, I pulled an all nighter trying to fight an abhorrent 19% win ratio to get the LAST win with less than three minutes until the mission ended.

Got it all done up to this point with three more days to go except for the IS6 where I got screwed thanks to the missions being bugged half the time. I am dreading having to worry about the wins cringe cringe cringe.

I'm not bothering with the Mutz as I already have two crew trainers for German meds.

 

For the T34 I'm using mostly the Wolverine, T25 AT, Chaffee and AMX 13 75, winning on those tanks is not that hard most of the time, nor was getting three kills, but the 30k damage were a pain.

 

As for the IS-6 I'm using mostly the ST-I and some random tanks in my garage, T-50 proved to be good to get wins recently, as for kills/damage, said ST-I does the job just right.

I totally dich the German premium, I have OI and jap tiger but nothing else and since the OI was nerfed I'm screwed. For American I use t67, m4 and m4 jumbo cause my t29 is good but I'm not good with it yet. Now for the Russian one (the one I want the most! Cause pmm) I'm using kv1, Churchill 3, t34-85m and kv1s (still stock ) so far I didn't had any troubles until this day cause EVERYONE KEPT FRICKING STEALING MY DAMN KILLS!!!!!!!!!!!. GEEZ SERIOUSLY FROM THE VERY MOMENT I TAKE ALMOST ALL ITS HP THAT TANK KILL BELONGS TO ME, SOME JERK THAT JUST FOLLOWS ME CAUSE I DO THE MOST DAMAGE SHOULD TRY TO EFFORT MORE INTO DAMAGING THE ENEMY AND LESS INTO STEALING MY DARNG FRICKING KILLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

11/12 points for T34 and IS6.

 

Will try to grind both next days, but with priority on IS6. If russian mission of the day is completed soon, then will grind for the american, if fail would save the last days to try.

 

While I know the T34 might be a better option, i really dont have any US heavy crew (despite having T14 in hangar) also i believe they will buff IS6 sometime soon. At any case, might buy extra token to complete T34.

Maybe not. I ran it to the wire too. I live in the Pacific Time Zone, and they ended the mission yesterday with at least 50 minutes to go.

I was grinding for the IS6, and had <8k damage to go and an hour.

Check your replay folder for the AM for that date and see if your mission ended early.

Missions are supposed to end 0420 PT daily. In N. America, our DST ended 5 Nov. and we're +8h UTC.

 

I put in a ticket with WG with screen shots showing the premature reset and made sure the ticket was entered before 0420 P/T.

If you discover your mission ended earlier, I suggest you put in a ticket too.

I am only doing the T-34 missions and so far have completed every one of the. Some have been easy but the ones requiring to win the battle have been not so fun. A bad win streak made it challenging to complete.A streak of teams that have most of my team mates die in the first 1 to 2 minutes did not help as well. I am also surprised at the number of players who do zero damage lately. Had a few games where half of the team died doing nothing. I know we all have bad games but it just seems to happen a lot lately.

 

 

Sadly two more day of missions that require winning too go from what I see. I guess the only good thing is I have plenty of time to play for this week. I am under doctors orders to stay home for 8 days.

 

I have been using my T-29 for most of the T-34 missions but have also played my T26E4 Super Pershing as well.

From the get go..the black Mutz was my priority as I work full time...wife and kids. I don't get home till like 4:30-5pm so I knew it was gonna be a pain. The damage is easy for me as I have multipe tanks I can play.

Wins though....no way in hell. Any mission that deals with wins don' think so. I tried doing all 3....but gave up on the is6 like around mission 6-7...then gave up on the T34 this weekend. The hassle is not worth it.

So now I been actually having fun doing just damage. Don't worry on wins...don' worry on being on top as I do ok myself. Just play for damage...lose a match and move on to next tank. Black Mutz....almost there....

Done all the missions for both T-34 and Mutz so far. IS-6 isn't that good of a reward to spend my time on, so I'm not going for it.

The wins are easy, you just need to play low tiers and toon

12 for 12 on the 34B, main area of focus now.

11 for 12 on the IS6B, planning to buy the tokens

2 for 12 on the Schwartz, not really working towards it.

 

Good luck to all that are going for them.
