95/115.

 

Exactly ten more days left to get points and it will take exactly ten more days for me to hit 115. I started off doing all three wins, the worst of which was easily tier IX-X, and dropped down to just the IV-VI and VII-VIII wins once I hit 75 points. Mathematically, I'm getting just enough points to get the last goal.

Yesterday I reached 115 tokens. I haven't played today yet but I will for a few hours after work. How is everyone else doing? 

 

 

Rewards not worth the time and hassle involved.  For 100+ points required, and the missions having to be wins, they should be tossing out t7s not [edited]box t6's

That's a matter of opinion, not fact. Different strokes for different folks. If anything, getting the free XP/credit boosters when completing missions has got to be worth something.

That's incorrect. You have a chance in a few of the random prize boxes to win either a Patriot or an E25, which are BTW very good tanks (if not OP).

 

BTW, I'm not a WoT fanboy. There are some things I dislike about the game too (MM anyone?). I'm just pointing out facts.

 

107/115 now.:great:

I traded in my Tiger 131 literally a day or two before they announced this mission. I'm at 90 now. I should be able to squeak in there before it ends. Getting a PZ B2 in a NY box was a godsend.

from an entertainment perspective, I'm doing fine.  I have found that the game is a lot more entertaining by not playing it so much the past ~6 months.

I couldn't be arsed, as soon as I saw the win requirement; I've been having much more fun doing other things.

 

I might have bothered, as others have said, if the rewards had been more worthwhile - the moment wins start being required, this sort of thing gets very frustrating very quickly.

I'll be back for the next one, provided the need for wins has gone (or if the rewards make it worthwhile).

OP I also got to 115 yesterday. I have a Tiger 131 which helped, but what I found was that this TR was more of a grind than a fun side project. The grind aspect of it took away the fun, especially since the rewards aren’t really worth it.
I tell myself “I’ll take February off from TR” - but I probably won’t.

Between not playing at all several days this month, and not making any effort to make sure in got all 3 tokens on days I did play, I'm at about 45 points.  Although I wanted the strv, it just wasn't in the cards.

As of 1/5, inside the game, it says I have 113 of 145. But, I lost track of how many completions I have in the Tiger 131. I'm going to get as many as I can to ensure I don't find out that several don't count because I completed more than 10 in the 131. I don't consider this a "grind" necessarily. I'm going to play anyway so why not try to win and be in the top 3? The rewards are nice enough and if you don't want them, I guess you can always sell them for credits. I agree this is not the most exciting set of Tank Rewards missions. Here's to hoping the next set is better.

I am at 103 points currently. I actually like that I can get a couple of points in only a few games on days I do not really feel like playing a lot. The rewards are decent - in terms of pure gold value, the reward to effort ratio for a tier 6 in a month and a half is better than that for a tier 5 in a month. That being said, I am only collecting the tokens for purely tank collecting purposes - I do not have a TOG, so I guess I am going to take it even though I do not plan to play it. Getting to 115 points gives me a low chance roll at some gold, and of course I get another roll at a T-28F30. 

 

I guess I am getting spoiled  - after November, where I got 3 tier 8 premiums and after the Christmas with its great crew member and discount rewards, getting potentially the worst tank in game (sorry TOG lovers, but the thing is utter trash) and some low chance at another tank or gold but most probably resulting in some extra consumables just does not feel super exciting.

he meant having a legitimate chance at it, not getting 130 points(or whatever the heck the top elite box is) and 99.9% of the time getting consumables

Wouldn't it be awesome if they had a Tiger 131 trial for the last week?

This TR really sucks IMO it basically punishes you for trying to grind a certain line or if you only want to grind one tank and on top of that top 3Xp and a win its kinda hard for average players. I only have 8 tokens cause i have been playing my OBJ 430 II trying to get the teir X and i usually top 8 or top 5 exp on wins. So they can shove this TR down a tiny hole where the sun doesnt shine.

The current Tank Rewards missions now, being in the top 3, three times Daily, can be VERY difficult and time consuming to say the least. AND FOR WHAT?  A TOG II or that Strv Swedish whachamacallit.  

 

                                                                              WHAT A   JOKE!

 

For that much work, there needs to be  (A CHOICE) of which Tier VI Premium you would like and offer one common Tier VI Premium of each nation. Not force these two buckets of dung on us!

 

Working on these missions and losing sleep for an oversized latrine bucket is not a reward, but a joke.

 

AND THIS YEAR only players with a Tiger are ABLE to earn extra missions for this Holiday Event. This is a JOKE and WG better start making these missions with more variety and common sense.....

 

Such as the Holiday garage Event, which is SUPERB as we could CHOOSE the  female tanker's nation and not be forced with a few Swedish ones.  This year's garage event is the BEST. So let's apply the same style to monthly missions as well.

109 pts and I dont have a Tiger 131. Really haven't found the Win requirement to be an issue. Finish all 3 in a handful of battles generally. Skipped the tier 9-10 pts a couple of times when I was busy over Xmas.

 

Out of curiosity, do they award credits or reserves or something if you have excess pts over the max needed (in this case 115)?

No, if you have more than 115 you don't get anything,  unless you complete the counter mission in-game (for 145?)

I think that Tank rewards should more accurately track your points for each mission like they did back during the Halloween missions.  I have no clue as to how many Tiger 131 missions I've done specifically (it's over 10, for sure), but the fact that it rewards you with a token  that goes against the TankRewards.com mission is rather irritating; Tank Rewards says you can get a max of 10 tokens... so why have it an option the full 45 days?

 

I feel like the Max 10 on TR is a typo or deliberately misleading and the lack of point tracking makes it kind of a gamble as to how close you are.

I probably will take it off and what ever I accumulate of just winging it, I'll go with that.
