Morning, tankers!

 

Do you happen to know a lot about history? Because we are highlighting battles during World War II and the Korean War with missions that support their respective conditions. Each mission will net you 10,000 XP (on the last vehicle played).

 

These missions will run starting today, June 20th, until June 26th. 

 

We have missions for the Siege of Tobruk, Operation Bagration, Operation Barbarossa, and the Battle of Inchon.

 

Be sure to check out the following article (or the spoiler below) for all the mission details and requirements: Welcome to the Tank Warfare Time Machine!

 

Thanks, everyone! Hope you enjoy the missions, and I'll see you on the battlefield!

 

Time Machine: Tank Warfare

Tough decision now. 40K in experience is a great reward but I'm addicted to football. I guess I could always sacrifice time with my kids and wife then I can do both.

It's a 6 day roll so it shouldn't be too taxing...

I thought we discussed this topic many many times and came to the conclusion that nation specific missions are not good (dumb) mostly. You guys are saying killing 20 italian tanks should be easy while running only UK vehicles(Something like that). I would like to see how many people will finish this.

I'll be running Italian vehicles today to help folks complete the mission.

 

I'm currently on the Standard B, so tier VIII-X if you want a shot at taking me out!

Nice enough but it makes me wistful for a mode where I can take a Pershing up against T-34/85's on a real Korea map. Maybe someday.

This doesn't match any of the dates on the missions...

I just checked in-game, and they all seem to match:

 

 

Are you talking about the dates listed after the battle names in the article? If so, those are the real historical dates and not mission dates.

What if you are playing premium tanks? or you have only premium tanks?

In over 600 battles on my KV-1, I've destroyed around 120 German vehicles. That's approximately 5 battles per German vehicle destroyed, or 100 to complete one of the missions.

10k XP for 100 battles (i.e. 100XP/battle)? Thanks, but no thank you. That's a terrible reward.

I want to do counts with you so I can shoot you on the opposite team.  Lol

Those are not mission dates but historical event dates.

OK, it's a free thing.  Thank you.

But missions like these seem problematic to me.  They reward players for bad play.  "I really ought to kill that Sherman that's low on health, but the mission is to kill 20 Italian tanks so I'm holding my fire until I can get a kill shot on that P26/40."  

 

And I feel sorry for anyone who's grinding a German tank, since you gave them a double-whammy   (You could have made the Barbarossa mission "kill Soviet tanks while driving a German tank", and then made the Inchon mission "Kill American tanks while driving Soviet or Chinese tanks" to spread the pain a little more fairly.)  The smart player will leave his Jerry tanks in the garage this week... which will be frustrating to people trying to complete those two missions.

Yeah - IIRC, WG usually has a mission for the "target" tanks (like an on-track or something) to encourage getting them on the field. I'll be surprised if we see many Germans at all. My Boche tanks will be collecting dust for a bit.

:(

Really WG, you think this is a good mission? Mission like this assume there is a plethora of Italian tanks in the game. Do you think this is actually achievable over 6 days?

 

Conditions: Destroy 20 Italian vehicles in any number of battles

Restrictions: Grand, Random, 7v7 unranked Team Battles, Skirmishes, and Strongholds

  • Must be in a vehicle Tier IV or higher from Czechoslovakia, Poland (Pudel), or U.K.
