In the World of Tanks PC Client.

Open the Store menu item.

Click on the Advent calendar. (tanks 2 lesser spotted for additional step)

Select the mission for the day.

Activate the mission.

Review mission parameters in mission screen.

 

NB:  I had to use the launcher to start the game in safe mode (probably garage mod conflict) to see the daily item.

Hey guys, this PSA is accurate and will get you the mission if you don't see the pop-up.  Issue preventing the pop is being worked on, in the meantime you can use this to make sure you see the Advent Calendar deal and can activate the mission.  Thanks F0R_M07H3R_RU5514!   - CM

Great update article on the portal.

 

https://worldoftanks...-calendar-1217/

 

Mission Tracking:

 

Number Day Criteria Reward
Day One Friday 5k Damage  
Day Two Saturday Destroy Five 30k Credits
Day Three Sunday Block 3k 30k Credits
Day Four Monday 3k Spotting 30k Credits
Day Five Tuesday 3 battles top 7 damage 30k Credits
Day Six Wednesday 3 battles top 7 experience 30k Credits

 

I'll update this for a few days; maybe as long as a week, just as a way of reminding folks to activate the mission.

Thanks for that information. I have been missing out on these as they don't pop up for me either.

Just to correct one thing you say, you have to click on the advent calendar after opening the store.

it seems that some are reporting the in-game calendar is not popping up, even though they are vanilla, without mods to interfere

Fridays popped up when I logged into the game.  Saturday's didn't pop up until hours later in a session when I had to restart my computer.

I don't like social responsibility on the interwebz.

 

 

But yeah, thanks, easy free stuff is easy free stuff.  Post again tomorrow?  My memory...not so good.

They should just be automatic and players shouldn't have to search for them.

 

Thanks OP for showing how to retrieve them by opening the game up in Safe Mode.

I’m left wondering who came up with this idea and how it went down at the planning meeting.

“Hey, lets have little missions daily that you have to search around for and activate or you don’t get them done”

“Ohh, great idea, a plan with no flaws”

“Won’t that irritate the players”

“What?”

“Never mind, I concur, let’s do it”

I run the game as downloaded ... I highly Value my account I have had since Open Beta and the instant they announced auto bans I refuse to use any modification to any game files!

 

Despite that my Sunday Mission never showed up, and I completely missed out on it  !!

                                                                                                                                                    :(

 

Thank You OP for this post!  I certainly hope it works, I don't have the extra money or time in life; so some bonus Credits Helps me tremendously!

Throughout the day, yesterday, a few folks randomly reported the mission of the day would pop for them, but not at initial client load/server login.  Perhaps there is something on the server-side which triggers the alert, so not everyone gets it simultaneously?  This could result in some folks concluding the alert was/is broken, because it didn't immediately appear when they logged into world of tanks.

To add evidence to support your speculation........

 

This morning, first initialization, nothing about anything that relates to the Mission of the Day showed up.   Normal, as usual UI on a common, everyday activation of WoT.   And on that first initialization no joy when checking through the STORE route.     Oh yeah, that was around 07:45 or so this morning. 

 

Next visit this morning the path through the STORE route had the CALENDAR active and it mentioned the mission and had the button.   Of course, only the left half of the button activated it for clicking, but that's not new.    When clicked, I got an "unavailable" response after maybe 15-20 seconds.  

 

Third visit this morning (really just to see what might be "available" if anything was) it worked.   I'd say it was working all three attempts about as well as the entire application works.   But would agree with your interpretation as well.

Well, I'm sorry to hear that so many folks, many even running vanilla, are having such varied experience in even manually triggering the mission.

 

I play, everyday, and missing out on the credits from Friday, was disappointing.  I would have undoubtedly fulfilled the mission requirements, in my normal daily grind.  I simply never (or don't recall seeing) the reminder or system channel alert.

3k spotting (and day one was 5k damage).  BTW, it specifically says "spotting" and not "assist".

Uhhhh, any idea what is the difference between spotting and assisted damage as the server sees it?  In common language it seems to be one and the same.  How does the game interpret a difference there?

 

My Personal Guess :   I have to reveal and shoot the target all myself - failure to shoot the target I reveal is only assisted damage when Teammates shoot the target I am revealing.

 

That would be my best guess at it - not entirely sure how Wargaming interprets it though; anyone else have ideas?

Spotting damage: damage done to targets you are spotting

Assist damage: same as spotting damage but also counts damage done to tanks you blow the tracks off of.

 

The LT-15 missions, for example, are for assist (and direct) and not just spotting.  So, doing things like keeping enemies tracked during the cleanup phase of a battle counts and can really add up.

Thank You very much for the info!

 

So now I can run a light or medium with high view range and sit still while I "collect" spotting damage!

 

I like how you differentiated spotting and assisted in your description of each.

 

Thank You!  : - )
