Check in game - you get equipment when you reach 10...

I hate these missions. It causes players to do stupid things trying to get the completion and end up loosing the battle more often than not.

Whether you like Arty or not is of no consequence.  It is part of the game and should have been included, I will no longer be paying for premium time

as I enjoy playing arty, most of the people I see whining about arty forget that sitting around camping is what gets them killed, not because arty is some

superhuman atomic bomb.

Why can I not actually do these missions? I have 1 token yet all the missions say I have no suitable vehicles.

Why are there no artillery missions?

 

Is this a subtle way of telling me (handicapped), as an artillery player, that I should find a new game to play?

 

Wheeled vehicles are going to ruin the fun for heavies and artillery, so I see a trend.

None of these missions work!

 

Any word from WG on that?

 

edit: Figured it out.

 

First victory doesn't count. This information just can't be found in-game.

 

The missions weren't working for me, because I always switched vehicles after the first win.

I agree 100%.  I play SPG's way more that any other class of vehicle... Oh wait it is a class of vehicle... so it should have had a set of missions!

I do not have the time to play these missions.  When can I purchase the Brit tier8 premium heavy?

Hey, everyone! 

 

For many, the end of summer signals the start of a new school year. At World of Tanks, we have a little curriculum of our own, with classes in all vehicles (except SPGs).

 

So, let's talk a bit about the Back to School missions! First, all 101, 201, 301, and 401 missions are chained and must be completed by 04:00 PT | 06:00 CT | 07:00 ET the following day! No exceptions!

 

You earn rewards for each mission completed before the deadline. Once a mission is completed, the next one unlocks up to 401. Complete 401, and you get 10K XP! Remember, for each vehicle you use, complete the x2 XP mission first!

 

Example

 

The "Back to School: Play Your Tanks Class Right!" missions will be available Sept. 1- Oct. 1, 04:20 PT | 06:20 CT | 07:20 ET.

 

Check out our news article for missions based on vehicle type, or check the spoilers below: Back to School: Play Your Tanks Class Right!

 

Light Tank Missions

 

Medium Tank Missions

 

Heavy Tank Missions

 

TD Missions

 

 

 

 

 

 

Explain this stuff in game.Having to muddle thru things ourselves till WG sees their folly and posts here is stupid.Lots of people dont come here ,then we have peeps in general chat asking other peeps who know nothing.Get your stuff together WG and fix the mission page so it actually tells you whats involved.

Just doing the first completion gives a token for the end prize of equipment which takes 10 tokens.The 10k at the end is harder but you should be able to get a couple a day.So one completion per class per day will get you free equipment in 10 days.

There is nothing good about these missions from late announcement to ridiculously stupid process to complete them.  I guess the lesson learned in these missions is:  garbage in, garbage out.  Ty WG, but most already know this valuable life lesson; so epic fail on your part to try to be witty!

So I take it there is no one going to tell us when the artillery missions ARE going to be announced.

 

Well, too bad, I was really looking forward to another year of premium time, I figured someone would at least monitor and try and provide an explanation why there are no artillery missions in this package.

 

Tell me please, is this a sign that I need to find another game, because artillery is again (still) ignored.

Back in the beginning I said these missions were unapproachable. 

 

That's partly because of the presentation of the missions as great big tiles in what seems to be arbitrary or random order in one GIANT category of "other missions".

 

Since the missions are chained, and specific to vehicle type, the mission sets for each diploma and the goodies for the freshman 101, sophomore 201, junior 301, and senior 401 missions would be more approachable if they were simply displayed together, in order, as a set in their own mission sub-section, with a lock icon on the ones that were not yet unlocked.  Hovering over the lock Icon should show you the prerequisite.   If Wargaming set up the presentation this way, they wouldn't need this giant text explanation here:

 

https://worldoftanks.com/en/news/general-news/back-to-school-missions-0818/?wot_client_param=external

 

Also, the iconography on the mission tiles can be a bit confusing too.  Some of the missions show green stamps (to earn the diplomas)  Other missions have red stamps.  Ten days in, I still have no idea what the value of the red stamps are.

 

I'm playing the missions now anyway... now that I've got it sorted.

So on the 101 missions you get 2 different tokens. 10 of the shell, roller, manuel, or fire tokens gets you equipment.  What do the light, heavy, medium, and tank destroyer tokens get you?  Cause you can get them on the 201 and 301 missions as well as the 101 missions but I can't find what collecting them gets you.

Well, it has been a few days now, I will attempt one more time.

 

Why are there no artillery missions in the package?

 

Hello, is anyone there, hello , hello
