A list of the missions would be nice.

 

As with any marathon type mission, daily requirements do not fit into every players lives (I have no problem, daily player, no lifer)

Would be better to have the old style where do X amount of xp for the duration and/or X amount of kills.

Another way would be let players unlock the missions at their own pace. ie. Complete Mission 1 unlocks Mission 2, ect. Of course the mission would have to be a little harder or get harder. 

 

My point is: get away from the you have to play every day to complete all the missions. Some players can play for many hours but only a few days a week.

I do agree with a comment above. I play huge amount of games during week but even I won't be able to complete all 50 of them.

 

Other than this is a great event with awesome presentation and great prizes. Thank you

Is the reward camo after completing the 50 missions really +4% to concealment as the in-game hover tip says?  Every other camo is +3% I believe.

How much camo affects a tanks concealment value depends on the tanks class.

Hi! Thanks for asking!

 

And sorry for the delay, I wanted to check with our teams on this and timezones are evil. It looks like the reward screen is currently showing the maximum camo value for that style. 

 

The style does provide a +4% bonus for TDs, +3% for MTs and LTs, and 2% for SPGs and HTs. 

 

Once the camo is rewarded, it will properly show you the correct concealment bonus relative to the tank's type.

These Kursk mission are IMHO not well thought out.

 

Tier 7 Tiger I and Panther and Ferdinand are in list of approved vehicles for South front but KV-1 is not?  The are in but KV-1S which has crap armor and the Churchill III has good hull armor but crap turret armor.

 

Where is the SU-76M?  SU-85 was not at Kursk, the SU-122 was. Without historical configurations this is pointless.

 

Instead of using Tier 7 Panther and Tiger for south WG should have used Tier 6 VK3002M for Panther Ausf D which was at Kursk and Tier 6 Tiger 131 or VK3601H as stand in for Tiger I (VK36.01H is almost identical in stats and armor and gun to tier 6 Tiger I ). Soviets should have been allowed KV-1 which is a Tier 5...

 

IMHO at best limit match to tier 4-6 and historical configuration of vehicles only and then PzIII, PzIVH, StuG III, Wespe, Grille and T-70M, T-34, Churchill III, KV-1, kv-1S, Su-76M

 

Mission 3 block 2000 damage on south front? In a tier 4, 5, or 6?  If your a veteran player you probably know how to angle and stay hull down but how many of these kids in tier 4's and 5's  are going to be able to bounce anything and quit in frustration.

 

Instead of being pub matches these should have been special battles like the old Historical battles but with a thought towards balance. Old Historical battle of Prokhorovhka was a joke as it always was 10 Tiger, 2-3 Panthers, and the rest Ferdinands versus 13 SU-152's and a T-34 or KV-1

You don't have to be in a historical tank to complete the mission. I did it in the AT-15A.

You play the tanks for a few battles and eventually you'll bounce that much (took me 9 games). 

 

I would like to see a list covering the entire calendar showing the daily missions.

I agree, it would be nice to preview the missions in the time line or be listed.

E3 1 battle, :teethhappy:

 

Besides, even in the lower tiers, it's cumulative. You have all day.

30 days for a tier 5 (with its own unique preset style). 50 days if you want the extra style set for any tank.

I just went North for this mission in my B2 740 and blocked 3000 dam. in 2 games. Not real hard to do.
