Howdy there fellow denizens of these webs ethereal!  It's your ol' Uncle Beorn here.  I thought since we had the additional requirement of wins added for the tank rewards, plus the top 3, I got to thinking, "well, how long will THAT take?"

 

I thought I'd check myself.  Now, this is for me, but anyone who is curious can add theirs to this thread and we can keep track.  Also, there are a few weekends where I have work or family, and I'm going to miss my dailies, so I can keep track of how close I get to the magical 115 for the top tank rewards level.

 

DAY - Win/Loss/Draw record for the day, IV-VI tank used, VII-VIII tank used, IX-X tank used, (Tiger 131 [if used]), Daily and Total Points:

December 1st: 7-7-0, Sherman Jumbo, O-Ho, Conqueror, Tiger 131 - (4,4)

December 2nd: 7-4-1, Sherman M4, Tiger II, E 100 - (3,7) Just not feeling the Tiger 131 today

December 3rd: 28-30-0, Matilda IV, X, X, Tiger 131 - (2, 9) I LITERALLY ran out of time.  I was top 5 so often, but I had to spend time with the family, so...  I missed this one.

December 4th: 11-14-0, KV-2, Löwe, E100, Tiger 131 - (4,13)

December 5th: 15-15-1, Sherman M4, AMX 13 57 GF, T-54, Tiger 131 - (4,17)  This day has been a $#it-stain on the Virgin Mary's smock.

December 6th: 7-7-1, Pz. Kpfw. IV H, Type 62, Super Conqueror, - (3,20) no Tiger 131, though I won and lost with it

December 7th: 13-9-0, VK 16.02 Leopard, JgTig. 8,8cm, E 100, Tiger 131 - (4,24)

December 8th: 4-6-0, Sherman Jumbo, Panther II, M48 Patton, - (3,27) 2 matches in the Tiger 131 and I got SMOKED both times...  Getting focused. 

December 9th: 4-8-0, NOT A GODDAMN THING!  SUCH a $#itty morning.  And now off to a business trip.  (0,27)

December 10th: 9-7-0, KV-2, O-Ni, M48A5 Patton, - (3,30)

December 11th: 15-14-0, KV-2, JgTig. 8,8cm, Conqueror, - (3,33) 2 days of harsh Tiger 131 matches...

December 12th: 4-4-0 (though I am still going to play for a while), Tiger 131, WZ-120-1G FT, M48A5 Patton, Tiger 131, - (4,37)

December 13th: 10-13-1, Tiger 131, T26E5 Patriot, M48E5 Patton, Tiger 131, - (4,41) But I could not BUY a win in my Badger of my AMX 65 t!!!

December 14th: 17-12-0, x, Lorraine 40 t, x, - (1, 42) Lots of wins, but no top 3s.  LOTS of smoking or getting smoked. Continuing after work.

December 15th: 16-9-0, T-150, T29, Tortoise, x, - (3,45) No love for the Tiger 131.

December 16th: 8-8-0, Pz.Kpfw. 38(t)n.A., Type 59, M48A5 Patton, - (3,48)  YESSSS  Type 59!  What a tank!

December 17th: AWAY ON BUSINESS

December 18th: 5-4-0, O-I Exp., AMX 13 57 GF, Tortoise, , - (3,51)

December 19th: 8-5-0, Pz.Kpfw. 38(t) n.A., T-54 mod.1, FV217 Badger, , - (3,54) Had no luck with the Tiger 131 lately...

December 20th: 6-9-0, KV-2, Type 59, Tortoise, , - (3,57) Again no Tiger 131 luck...

December 21st: 5-3-0, KV-2, Löwe, Tortoise, Tiger 131, - (4,61)

December 22nd: 13-6-0, M4 Sherman, X, M48A5 Patton, Tiger 131 - (3,64)

December 23rd: 4-4-0, X, X, Super Conqueror, , - (1, 65) buuuut, I may try again.  Family is coming over...

December 24th: 19-9-0, Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. H, Mauerbrecher [I know, I know...], E 100, , - (3,68) Nice day, but LOTS of 5th place or so outings...

December 25th: 23-13-1, Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. H, Mauerbrecher, Skoda T 50 [first day I had it!], , - (3,71) Very nice day!  But not Tiger 131 love

December 26th: 9-9-0, T-34-85 Rudy, Mauerbrecher, Skoda T 50 , (3,74) Still no Tiger 131 love, and some heavy arty sniping...

December 27th: 8-5-1, KV-2, Mauerbrecher, IS-7, , - (3,77) Tiger 131 getting targeted...  heh

December 28th: 10-7-0, Tiger 131, Mauerbrecher, Skoda T 50, Tiger 131 - (4,81) 3 dailes in 1st 2 matches, and then a SLOG for that 9-10...

December 29th: 13-7-0, Tiger 131, Leo, M48A5 Patton, Tiger 131 - (4,85) Not done yet, but I MIGHT be maxed out on Tiger 131 points.  Still...

December 30th: 6-6-0, Pudel, Emil I, E 100, , - (3,88) Tiger 131 getting arty targeted again...  Hmmm, wonder why?

December 31st: 18-18-0 KV-2, Panther II, M48A5 Patton, Tiger 131 - (4,92) $#!t players tonight.  Intentionally blocking shots, pushing into open...  BAD sportsmanship all around.

January 1st: 10-14-0 KV-2, Panther II, M48A5 Patton, , - (3,95) KV-2 was rough, and more arty targeting...  weird.

January 2nd: 6-9-0, Tiger 131, Type 59, Skoda T 50, Tiger 131, - (4,99) Will play more of course, but...  Nice to get 4 dailies in first 5 matches.

January 3rd: 10-16-0, Tiger 131, Emil I, M48A5 Patton, Tiger 131, - (4,103)  friggin bots were EVERYWHERE, I couldn't BUY a friggin win.  pay to win my @$$!!!!!!

January 4th: 13-8-0, O-I Exp., Emil I, Conqueror, , - (3,106) LOTS harder to get dailies than wins, the exact reverse of yesterday...

January 5th: 6-1-2, Tiger 131, Emil I, E 50, Tiger 131. - (4,110) Yeah, more draws than losses.  Weird matches today.  AND, I have the points for a tank!

January 6th: 2-0-0, KV-2, , , - (1,111) off to a business luncheon in San Diego.  Friggin January weather but 80 degrees?  May be on later...

January 7th: 7-4-0, KV-2, AMX 13 57 GF, Skoda T 50, Tiger 131, - (4,115) Well, that's it.  That's the level 5 extra nice crate.  Okay...  Had some great clanmate platoons!

January 8th: 16-15-0, Pz.Kpfw. III Ausf. K, Emil I, E 50, , - (3,118) LOTS of rough teams but I managed.  Still...  I have a goal!  1000 overall wn8!  I AM CLOSE!

January 9th: 17-7-0, KV-2, T34, Skoda T 50, Tiger 131, - (4,122) I am sure I have used the Tiger 131 more than 10 times now.  What gives?

January 10th: 15-8-0, KV-2, Panther/M10, M46 Patton, Tiger 131, - (4,126) I seem to have hit my stride lately...

January 11th: 4-3-0, KV-2, , Super Conqueror, , - (2,128) Will get on and play a little more later perhaps. Need to grind credits

January 12th: 8-8-0, , Löwe, E 50, , - (2,130) not really trying as hard since I've got the big box.  But harder this morning.  LOTS of arty sniping...

January 14th: 0-1-0,  , , , , - (0,131) I don't reckon I will be working on this anymore.  I have been called in to work tomorrow.

It took me 15-20 matches yesterday to get all 4. Not bad maybe an hour most were wins but I didn't get the top 3 in xp. Finally pulled out the t54 for the 9s and 10s. Type 59 for the 8s. And did the tiger 131 for the tier 6. Got a lot easier once I realized the game was defaulting to the LATAM server. So I jumped over to US Central (where a good Ohio boy belongs), touched some tankers in the weakspots and called it a day.

the current missions of being in top 3 of experience earned and win is really hard for you no talent wannabe tankers

 

really bad players need to spam gold ammo to be in top 3 and most likely takes 15-30 battles each mission if not more

yesterday completed 2 of the missions on first try with the tir 9-10 taking 12 tries because quite frankly unwilling to spam gold ammo and was grinding a light tank

 

if you are not that good when trying to do these missions quickly do not use your current grind exp tanks with novice crews break out your favorite seal clubbers for instance tier 4-6 use a T67 tank the favorite go to tank for the player who cant aim and op enough where he can actually play above his skill level. when playing 7-8 tiers grab a td preferably a premium make some credits while you try to do the mission without spamming gold cause most td guns are 1 tier higher

if you are going to spam gold aim for the enemy 2 tiers higher why ?? because if you shoot a tank 2 tiers higher for max damage chances are you break even on the cost of ammo also you get more exp

 

the hardest missions are the ones where your team has to win  why ? because the MM system places a win out of reach most of the times because you get stuck with 14 tomatoes and enemy gets 3 unicums in a toon and 5 blue players with rest green

dont say it doesn't happen because it does the MM system isnt designed in any way shape or form to be fair

if your doing the 7-8 tier mission late at night ALWAYS and I do mean ALWAYS use a good tier 7 tank

 

tier 7 is the magic tier for late night tanking you dont get dragged into tier 10 battles and all of the tier 9 tanks do so at worst you only see the very poor playing tier 8 as enemy that MM tries to hand them an easy battle .

 

you know the low battle wallet warriors that drive around clueless with under 1k battles and are oblivious to everything around them

For the most part, I'm just grinding some tanks as usual, letting it happen as a consequence, and not paying attention to how long it takes, or mission status until I'm about done for the day.

 

  • Tier 4-6: ARL V39 (and Tiger 131)
  • Tier 7-8: Tiger P
  • Tier 9-10: T49 (On-Track)

9-10 = WZ-111 5A

 

Got them in 3 battles today.  I'd rather be lucky than good!

Played 9 battles last night got 4 points, Tiger 131, Centurion MK1 and the T30. I don't expect to have this level of success every night though as MM was kind to me and i'm sure some nights will be the complete opposite. One thing I will mention is for the tier 9-10 points probably better to run a tier 9 as I had a 4K damage game with some assist in the IS-7 last night but came up just short of the top 3 cause it was 3-5-7 MM and shooting lower tiers nets less xp.

4-6 Valentine II

7-8 T92

9-10 M53/M55

 

It took 5 games with me being top 3 in 4.  I’m sure today won’t be as easy.

I do these the same way I do all tank rewards and marathon missions... I don't try.  The rewards are never worth it.  I play whatever tank I want for how ever long or short I want.  If I complete some missions, great, if not, I don't care.  It's just a video game with pretend/virtual/pixel prizes.

I did it similarly, just playing my grind tanks, and seeing when it happened.

 

I'll update when I can go check, but IIRC, 2 battles 1-1 in my 183 (On Track), 2 battles 1-1 in my StuG III B (Project tank from JagdZilla On Track), and a few at 7-8... but I'm running the WZ-131, WZ-132, M41 Bulldog, and a few others in there, and completed it just going for my daily bonuses.

Eh, well, fwiw:


December 1:  took 1 hour to complete all 3.  Forget vehicles I played.

December 2:  didn't pay attention to the missions for my hour of play this morning.  Got the low tier one done in a British tier 5 or 6 heavy

Hour 2:   Played Crusader SP (loss),  Caernarvon (win, 1st), Conway (loss), Conqueror (win, 9th), Conway (loss), Centurion Action X (Grand battle, win, did poorly), Conway (win, 2nd), 10 minutes left

I like using the Tiger 131 because it completes both the Tier 4-6 and Tiger 131 missions with one win. I was lucky enough to have good battles in the 131 yesterday and today and knocked those out fast.
