my dumb question: are the missions time gated? say if I finish the first stage do I have to wait until the next day to finish the 2nd, or, does it start right after?

 

they are. it would be nice if the would not be since I have a trip on half of challenge.

Does anyone know why the XP missions are done so badly? There's no logical progression across the levels... 24k, 30k, 35k, 35k...

Aside from the fact that 280k base XP is way too much. 200k would be much more nice and you would actually have far more players playing on a daily basis. *But that's none of my business.*

 

 

 

Shush. It's 32K LOWER than the Progetto was. Cry more please.

What's bad is if you need 50 xp to complete a stage and you earn 1,500 the remainder doesn't carry over - 1,450 xp is lost.

dumb question #2: does the base xp use the base with premium modifier if you have premium time therefore making it easier for prem. account holders or is it base xp as it would be for everybody, premium or standard account?

Base xp means it does not include any modifiers for premium time, 2X wins, or personal reserves.

No thanks.  I would not waste my time on the POS.  It's no different than the last Tier VIII that you guys have forgotten about.  Anyway, thanks to War Gamings policy of unfairness, they have just alienated about 1/2 of the player base as about that many do not have Tier X tanks, so they get screwed.  War Gaming should bring all the requirements down a bit and lower the limit to Tier VIII, to match the vehicle in question.  Even then, i still would not waste my time as when you do the math, most people just do not have that kind of time.  If I want it, I will buy but currently, I see nothing to drool about.  I already have a Brit heavy to train a crew in.

Did the math. 90+ hours of tanks in 2 weeks time to achieve the grind side? Hmm...nope. Just like the last one. Only way to 100% this is with super uni skillz and a 20 million credit deficit at the end of it all from constant tier 10 play.

I take it the full package cost will be the same as the Progetto?  About $70 I believe.

Considering your WR%, the rest of us who know how to play are going to do just fine.

Sigh reading is hard:

"rolling out in Tier VI and higher vehicles"

 

Another requirement WG forgot to spell out: ability to read English and basic comprehension skills :(

@Gnomon it says on the website that event starts at 10:00 ET. Is it really going to be 10:00 ET or ~14:30 ET like with Progetto marathon? :)

1) When does it go on sale? I think it should be after the challenge is over to give us who earn it a kewl "headstart"! :)

2) Also is the unique style for only if you earn it? That would also be more incentive and reward for those of us who are going the distance!

Is there a time requirement on the missions or is it complete 1 & start another? Also just making sure I understand, you can complete the commitment OR the mastery to finish said mission right?

If like the Progretto, then 70% should be the max again for me.  Grinding WoWS for Coal and Steel for tier iX and X ships to apply on the next 25% off  in December.

Win rate is an antiquated, old indicator, virtually irrelevant.  But since you judge people by that, I feel sorry for you but, There always has to one jerk in the whole crowd, and I guess it was your turn.  It's people like you who keep new blood from playing this game for very long, and I don't blame them.
