MM Lottery at its best. Most people will run Rusky tanks and pray for enough Fraus on the enemy team, or they'll grind the [edited]barn and pray for pasta tanks on the other side.

Useless missions again.

 

Also, is it me or someone at WGs office is fraging high:

Restrictions:

  • Grand, Random, 7v7, Sorties, and Fort battles

 

W.t.f are "Sorties" and "Fort" battles???  :amazed:

Thanks for pointing that out! I checked with our teams, and it should read: "Grand, Random, 7v7 unranked Team Battles, Skirmishes, and Strongholds"

 

The article has also been updated with the correct Restrictions.

Only if you have accelerated crew training activated.  Otherwise the 10k will sit on the tank available to convert to free xp

A) we all refuse to play the German, Chinese, Russian, or Italian tanks for the week to protest

B) we all play those 4 nations only so we can all complete the missions

I'll drive my Pudel all weekend and accomplish BOTH (the protest and the missions).

Or I could just roll around on a field of broken glass all weekend.

This isn't for a freebie tank. This is just to achieve some free xp otherwise earned over a longer period, for people like me. I like that WG offers some variety and challenges. I might complete one of these before the end but if not no big deal. I'm trying to grind through the IKV 90B and this comes in handy with 41k to go. Thanks WG.

So how stupid is this? Two separate missions where the goal is to kill/damage German tanks. Yet no mission to make it worthwhile for someone to drive German tanks.

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.

Why, yes, yes they do.:facepalm:

I'm sure a small population will get a mission done, so only a 99% fail.

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. 

I actually was thinking, "Good job, WG. WTG!" for a bit, until you confirmed how short this mission is. Using the historical dates would have actually been more achievable for the average tanker. Is WG so afraid of giving out 40K XP over the next six months they couldn't have used the historical dates?

I only have German tanks but there's no mission for them?

 

Guess what? I won't be playing.

What are you talking about? For the mission "Korean war/Battle of Incheon" you can use German tanks as well as tanks from France, Italy, Japan, Sweden, USA.

Guess I'll keep Germany in the woods for a while.

Oh, Chinese, too.

Thanks for the heads up.

Sorry, you're right.

 

I'm a target in 50% of the missions and have 1 mission (25%) to be the shooter.

 

Still leaving the panzers in the garage...

There will be no shortage of people driving German tanks, regardless.

Without a condition to kill American or UK vehicles there is a huge gap in the whole event.  it's probably easier to grind XP with the soccer mode than these missions.  Tier 6 stronghold's might be a good option for getting some of these missions done, at least the china/USSR mission.

I'm seeing far fewer German tanks today than yesterday. I guess the German drivers got tired of being the focus of all the Soviets on the opposing team.

These missions are not working correctly. They haven't worked right for the past two days. I qualify for all the conditions shown in the tanks shown and I am getting no further along in any of them. Someone in QA needs to validate that they aren't working properly.
