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. 

 

Thanks for checking, Gnomon!

I would repeat what has already been said.

 

Not every player can play for long enough every day. Here in New Zealand the reset is from 2300 - 2330. Which is bedtime then off to work the mext day. When I get home I do various things and find that I am usually able to get 2 - 3 hours each evening.

 

I would like to suggest that the missions are run like the Campaign. All missions are available to view and can be selected as time permits. Perhaps have them in tiers so that easy ones get 1 point and harder ones get 2 or 3 points.

 

I would also prefer the Kursk maps to be more common during the rotation.

I just hate how the missions are spread across 50 days. I would have been ecstatic to get to just sit down and grind out missions but at 1 mission per day it feels more like a chore. Really kills the excitement for me.

Needed 400 blocked damage to finish day 3. Got 620. Day 4 event switched over just before the battle ended. No credit. Really sux and no way I can see to be able to finish it out.

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'd like to see the list as it would then help inform a decision on whether to purchase the tank now and take advantage of it's gold earning potential or continue to play to complete the missions to receive the "free" tank. So far, mission requirements have not been difficult and easy enough in a handful of games to complete. I think it's doing more to help keep the middle tiers populated which I also believe to be a good thing.

Last year: Show up one week out of two and win a free great tier six premium medium!

 

This year: Complete some tasks one month out of two and win a free mediocre tier five premium medium!

 

The lesson of soccer mode seems to not have been learned: these loooong events are too tedious to get excited about. Can I really convince myself to log in every day of July to get a free tank in August?

​I got two of the three in my StuG III G on Glacier, with a funny on the move kill towards the end.

I suspect this is why the botting is out of control.... in order to complete the annoying daily requirements.

These Kursk missions are IMHO not well thought out.

 

Tier 7 Tiger I and Panther and Ferdinand are in the list of approved vehicles for the 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 a 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 the south front? In 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 Ferdinand versus 13 SU-152's and a T-34 or KV-1

 

 

Well thought out, and more in tune with a more historical recreation of actual vehicles in combat...maybe next year, good job.

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

 

 

It took two games in a Tiger I.  Angle it. Not much else in the historical list is going to block much. (I don't have a Ferdy)

Just log in 30 days out of the 50 and you get the mediocre Tier 5 medium. And equipment for it.  Free tank, not much effort.

I think it is stupid that you don't get credit for damaging a tank when you kill it. You have to damage it to kill it. So what should have been a one battle event for today ending up being 2 battles.
