Just finished day 14 and I am 14/20, 12/20 and 13/20. 

 

I think the German damage mission is the easiest...

Not even going to bother with it anymore.  I stopped going for it on day 6 or 7 after I realized how time consuming it can be.  It's a better use of time just working to earn money to buy the tanks than it is grinding that many hours.  So I'll probably not be getting any of them.  Especially since the purchase options for tokens are so limited.

Stopped going for the Schwartzpanzer after a week. Too difficult for me.

T34B: Have 12 missions done. Should complete on day 18. I skipped day 13 and will skip day 15. Win-dependent conditions are very difficult. I did day 11 because it fell on a Saturday and could grind it out most of the day.

IS-6B: 11 missions done and should complete on Day 19 or 20. Again, skipping the win-dependent missions. 

Next Saturday maybe tough. Have plans that evening, but we'll see.

 

 

T34B: 13 complete

IS-6B: 12 complete

14 Mutz, finishing today.
13 IS6 and T34.  I'll finish it by Sunday.

Not touching today's win requirements.

Will finish Mutz Friday and both heavies by Sunday to. The amount of anger at WG right now over tokens and how hard the missions became and time spent. Was easy only had 3 days were my subhuman skills made me have long nights.

My goal was 15 for the T34 and 10 for the IS-6.  I have the Mutz, so I'm not running that one.

 

I have 12 for the t34 and 9 for the is-6 right now, so I'm on track.  The only bump in the road for me so far was surprisingly day 7 (5 wins as top 10 xp).  The wins wouldn't come and I got frustrated.  Finished it for the t34, but left the IS-6 unfinished.

 

For most missions I'm running high-tier tanks.  Easier to be top 10 XP when you'r tier 10 in a 3/5/7 matchup.  For American, I've mainly been using the batchat 25t AP, and now the batchat 25t (just upgraded).  For the is-6, I've been mainly running the TVP 50/51.

 

I've experimented with some lower tier tanks too.  I've had success in both the T67, and the SU-100Y.  I used these two tanks for yesterday's 3-kill missions and it was both fun and easy.

 

My plan going forward is to finish the IS-6 on the "damage 50 vehicles" mission tomorrow.  The T34 will be today, tomorrow, and hopefully Wednesday.  I'll be trying to get the token every day for the t34, but if I dont nail it early, it becomes less likely.  If I'm stuck needing one, I will try to hit it on day 18 in scout tanks. 

 

Finished my 10 for is-6 as planned last night, but I missed day 13 for the t34b, so I still need two.  Not where I wanted to be.  Here's what I see happening:  

The win restriction is too much for me on days 15 and 17.  

I'll take a swing at days 16 and 18.  16 will be hard for me.  18 shouldn't be too hard in a carry tank at mid-tiers, or even a tier 8 light, but it could be elusive.  

Day 19 will be a grind, but without the win condition, it should be doable.  

I expect to fail at 16, and get 18/19 for the finish.  

 

On the bright side, mission grinding in my t67 is doing wonders for my recent wn8.

14 of 15 completed for both USA and USSR.  Gave up on German missions after I didn't complete Day 1's mission.  I don't have any high-alpha German or Japanese tanks in my garage, and thankfully I realized it right away so I didn't get involved in this "non-refundable token" mess.

 

Like most players, I'm quite sure... I will be waiting until Sunday's missions to complete the 15th mission for both US and USSR, since Day 19 seems to be the easiest of the remaining ones to complete.

 

Imagine if my power were to go out on Sunday?  And I can't get 5 kills on Monday's final day?  And imagine I will still need ONE TOKEN for US and for USSR to get the "free" tanks?  LOL  Let's not imagine that.

It would have been nice if WG warned us of server resets at 1 AM on the west coast before the reset. Tonight I am only going for the Mutz token, good luck to all who try to get 18 or 36 wins.
