WG, please implement another condition for these missions: Can't be leeuniverse (or anyone else that complains like this).

 

This is the best "get a free tier 8 premium tank" mission I've seen:

  • can go pure free-to-play and grind it out
  • shortcuts if you play well
  • intermediate rewards
  • ability to buy outright or at discounted price if you grind a bit
  • and tier 6 or higher so newbies don't get clubbed and yolo suiciding doesn't work

They could care less about “unicorns”. They want to make it hard to get the tank in order to make more sales. It’s not a complicated hustle to figure out.

 

"hard" - the folks that aren't skilled, or capable at tier 10 only need to play something like 500 to 600 battles in the time period if they want it for 'free'.

 

I just played a few battles in the tier 10, on common test, and I'm not that sure I really want yet another "support medium" - altho the tier 9 appears to be a Leo 1, at tier 9, with a semi-auto gun...

It's not a few missions.

Quicky Baby did a chart in a video, and the average player will have to play several hundred games. I do believe that was to achieve a 50% discount.

 

QB is not even American. He is all like GOD SAVE THE QUEEN this, and TEA AND CRUMPETS that

they priced it and did the missions such that the average player can finish 2-3 of the mission steps then purchase the tank for under the normal tier 8 tank costs.

Marketing 101.  People will get invested into the missions, figure out they don't have a chance, see they now have a slight discount, and buy it.

Doesn't look too tough to get 50-70% off.

There is no "play or don't play" the progetto missions.  Normal gameplay racks up XP for the missions if you are using tier 6 or higher... so even if you decide to ignore the progetto missions, after two weeks if you just play normally you will still probably have racked up a decent discount on the tank in the premium shop.

It depends, I yell at my teammates and don't change how I play but realistically if you care about your stats and winning then you will have to adjust for all the [edited]playing for x5 and missions.

you will need about 480 to 500 battles to do it the exp way. 

 

damn cry babies stop asking for free handouts,  when you get a free handout you cry because its to hard for you to complete  unreal

 

 

this tank is nothing to brag about its trash once spotted your dead and arty um destroys you and your crew 1 to 2 crew dead by tier 10 splash every time tier 8 arty hitting me for 800+ a few times now m44 hitting me for 480 really?? 

took 4256 dmg  4 kills 800 spotting just to get a 3rd class

 

on a side note even the russians are talking about how bad it is and how bad the new line is right now the 10 is complete trash so who ever grinds that will have fun

I'll take the mostly free crew trainer and I'm sure the tier 9 med will be a fun pubby dream crusher to beat up all the tier 8 premiums with.  What tier 9 medium isn't?

And just what does that have to do with how many matches it will take most players to win the Italian?

Approach it with the right attitude and you get out of it what you put into it.  I consider myself below average but determined so I'll grind it out to stage 4 or 5 and take the discount.  And at 300-ish xp per round average its a grind.
