Day 13: Nov. 13-14, 04:20 PT (07:20 ET)

  • Be one of the top 10 XP earners on your team
  • Win at least 15 battles

 

Are you f*ing kidding me? It took me 2:30 hours to get 12 wins on day 11, and just for the IS6 B, I couldn't do it for the T34 B.

 

These missions with winning as a requirement are simply awful, if it wasn't for that it would be okay. It's a grind on it's own. Looking at the calendar I see the other days will be worse.

 

I've simply given up on the medium.

I've picked up 10 tokens for the Schwarz.58 and am declaring victory with that; I already have the IS-6 and T34 and there are only so many hours in the day. Regarding tanks grinding for the Death Star is my priority.

It's the 'get wins' ones that have done me in; I'm merely average (at best - been a bit side-tracked by botes lately, which hasn't helped), so can't carry hard enough to get enough wins in a reasonable time.

I'm going to get to ten on the T34 and probably call it a day (one more to go); mind you, if gameplay improves after the x5 weekend, I may re-think, but probably not.

My plan is to finish the Mutz by Wednesday.

 

I need 3 more tokens for the IS-6 and T34.  

 

Day 14 - Damage 50 tanks.  Easy enough and straight forward.

Day 16 - Deal 25% damage.  Might take a bit, but doable.

Day 18 - Be top XP 3 times.  I finished the HT-VI missions in one night, so this shouldn't be hard.

Day 19 - Top 10 XP for 30 Battles.  So basically play 30 battles and on a weekend.

Day 20 - Kill 5.  Tough when everyone is holding their shots, but I just take a high alpha tank or auto loader.

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.

So this one is 25% longer.  Or about 38 minutes more...3:08 total time.

who is spending money ?? this is all about "not" spending money just investing time ... Im looking forward to trading in all but the german tank towards other tanks because already won the T34 and IS6 years ago and never drive IS6 because you got to spam to much gold rounds to pen and without premium account just breaking even is pointless when i can make 60k a battle in lowe or T34 and never break into gold ammo without premium

 

You mention that you have been looking for the tokens. I assume looking for them = take my $$$$$ Wargaming!!!!

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.

My super awesome board game Kingdom Death: Monster arrived, so I gave up on the missions.

 

On the plus side, one of my settler people got decapitated, and another one got his intestines chewed on three (yes three) separate times by white lions, finally resulting in death.  I guess he tasted like chicken or something.

Panzer 58: 13. It's really easy to me because I play generally German tanks and I have 2 tier 9.

IS-6: 12. I just gave up with today's mission but I need a Soviet HT trainer, so I will try to complete it anyways.

T34: 8. I can't even handle to get 12 wins in less that 3 hours so I will ignore this one.

I've done 12 of 13 for the Pz 58.  I plan on finishing day 13 tonight.  I've been using the E25, Tiger, and Maus for the bulk of the damage.  I also throw in the GW Tiger P for a change of pace.

I didn't even start with the IS-6B nor the T-34B.  I have the IS-6 already from the marathon for it a few years ago.  I'm not interested in another tier 8 premium heavy as I have the T26E5.  Also doing all three seems like the best way to drain the fun out of the game.

Just finished the Pz 58 for today, so 13/13. Mostly using Leo PTA and E50 (which I had to stock grind though....). Sometimes the JagPz E100, but I'm not very good damage farming with that tank. Despite sometimes taking extra time, I don't mind doing these damage missions. 

 

12/13 for the other two tanks.Saturday was a pain since I came home late and had to finish the damage in the AM and trying to somewhat carry wins was a chore. I really shouldn't have gone for the IS-6 since I don't really plan to play it, but I got too many earlier missions completed to quit now.   

 

Hoping to finish Pz 58 on Wednesday and get 3 of the 4  "easier" missions for the T32 and IS-6. The end is in sight!

 

Good luck to everyone trying these missions!:)

I already have the Schwarzpanzer, so, not even trying.

 

Was out of town on business on Saturday last, so, am currently 12 out of 13 for both the IS-6B and the T 34B.

 

I reckon I will get them without spending anything.
