Not looking good for me, I expected to have finished them all up to this point but I have already missed 1 IS6 and 1 T34. Tomorrow isn't bad but after that is will be difficult.

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.

 

I missed that, day 19 is only be in the top 10 30 times, not 30 wins. That makes a big difference for me to complete. Wins have been painful.

I'm guessing that would take about 3 hours.

Very lucky day 13. Used T25 Pilot and did 89% winrate to get 15 wins easily. Maybe that loss streak last week has a silver lining.  I was due for a win streak just in time for one of the hardest tokens I'll attempt to get. I wont even try the other win multiple battles token.

Made it to 10/15 on the IS-6B and stopping there.

 

Made it to 12/15 on the T-34B, but will do the last three.

 

That way I get one for free and one for $17.  Could use the crew trainers and I already have Schwarzpanzer so now I'll have the whole collection.

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.

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.

Annnnd, 13/14 for both IS-6B and T 34B

 

So, making good progress...

Mutz 13/15
T34B 14/15
IS-6 B 13/15

I’ll finish the day 14 tonight to be 14/15 on all three and start early to knock out the 15 on all three Wednesday.  Will be an epic day long grind on my day off.  Then I will uninstall.  J/K, but I will take a break.

Cheers,

Haven't done a lick of work on either one. Will sign in for a few hours of overtime at work and purchase the lot if need be.

I do miss my leisure time of my student days.

These missions took all the joy right out of this game.

 

We play games for fun and entertainment... we don't play games so they can feel exactly like a stupid job feels.  Should I wear a suit-and-tie to play this game, maybe?  Punch-in and punch-out on the timeclock?  sigh

 

"Free" tanks, my stinky butt...  I had to work hard to "earn" the $50 price tag, with the cost being my time, and my life.  I haven't done much else these past 14 days than play World of Tanks... literally play ALL day EVERY day.  And it hasn't been fun really.  I know most people understand my words, and feel similar.  I also know WG (being a corporation, and their solitary concern being PROFIT) doesn't give a damn, and in fact the more aggravated and frustrated we are, the more they believe we will spend, to compensate for our emotional state.

 

Well they didn't sucker me in, I spent the long days just so I don't have to spend a penny... and as a consumer, that is MY primary motivation... to never enhance or encourage the profit-driven motives of the corporations.

 

But trust me on this... I am never doing another "free tank giveaway" or anything similar ever again.  I'll just play the game until it's not fun, and then go do something else instead... as it should be!

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 use M3 Lee . it is easy to get win . I have over 60% win rate in that and not that hard to be top 10 xp earner . if u pen 4 shoots at any tier battles u are good.(I only grind for t 34)

I want to get all 3, because why not. Before playing tonight:

11/13 for Mutz

13/13 for T34B

11/13 for IS-6B

 

I am not overly worried about Mutz tokens as these only require damage grinding, which even at 55k can be done in 3-4 hours in one night. Since I am not even going to attempt the 18 and 25 win missions, that is two nights entirely dedicated to Mutz tokens, and another two tokens should not be that big of a deal. I am very confident that I can get tokens for damaging 50 tanks for both heavies, and somewhat confident that I can do the place top in xp 3 times on Saturday for both tokens as well. This takes care of T34B tokens, but I will still need 2 more for IS-6B. One of them - play 30 battles in top 10 in xp is fairly easy and falls on a Sunday, so should have plenty of time to do it. Then I will need to do one of the following: get that 25% of team's damage or 5 kill game. Both are very very doable, but both require some luck.

I am guessing the best chance at 25% is to have a real bad team and get rolled but do some decent damage. 25% in a win is a lot of damage. Just have the Mutz to do today and that will leave me at 14-13-13. This damage 50 was a gift to make up for those win missions.

For me, the top ten exp with 15 wins wasn't doable last night and I only accomplished the IS-6 top ten with 12 wins so far. There are four easier missions I may be able to pull off before it's over, day 14,16,18, and 20.  I'm at 11/15 for the T34B and 12/15 for the IS-6. I should have prioritized the T34B but used the auto loading Czech thinking I would get through the wins easily and then run the allied tanks. The exp was easily met but the wins took long to finalize so I'm not going to waste sleep over the upcoming 18, 25, and 30 wins with top ten exp. I'll play those days but with less stress about the outcome. Maybe I'll surprise myself at the end of the session. The tokens are only sold in 5's and can not miss them by Nov 21. it would be nice to acquire them as needed but you get a heavy premium for less than half the normal cost if you only need one bundle so not too bad.

Today's 'damage 50' mission will take me to ten for the T34; I'm going to call it a day there and buy one token - a T34 for $20ish isn't bad, and I don't need the others.

 

I would have tried for the IS-6 too, but the 'get x wins' missions have turned out to be a lot more hideous than I expected (especially during the x5 weekend)...
