Domo, Anzio Annie could be the basis for a lucrative merchandising crossover with the Thomas The Tank Engine crowd. Get 'em young!

Does "A Wildcat" reset (throwing away any partial progress) every single day!?  

 

I think so... :(

Thanks.  

 

Sorry Domo, but that makes these missions completely ridiculous.

totally!

 

"Destroy 10 American or British tanks and survive".  This kind of imply that your team wins the battle or the enemy cap the base, otherwise you lose whatever kills you did during this battle. Kinda hard just to earn a stupid slot...

And I confirm you lose your progress the next day. I had 2 kills yesterday, lost them this morning.

Axis missions harder than Allies?

 

1 less German tank player on during this mission...

You tell me: Kill  5 German tanks in a Brits tank, or kill 10 US or UK tanks in a German tank AND survive the battle?

 

I know my choice was easy...

So I was excited to see new missions for the Germans THEN I saw what WG did. Why do the Italian Resistance missions count for Axis missions? How can it count as an axis mission if they have to kill axis tanks? Only WG would do something like this.

I didn't even check the missions before picking, I just picked it for the emblems, I'd rather have the german ones. I assumed the missions would be essentially the same but with different nations, no big deal.

 

I picked wrong. Oh boy did I pick wrong and now I basically can't complete it because i don't have the time to play enough for the stars to align with the right vehicle on the enemy team, getting the kill shot and surviving, and let's be honest, winning might as well be a requirement as well because draws and cap-outs are pretty rare.

 

And meanwhile the other missions is basically just "survive" (again because capouts and draws are rare) and kill 5 tanks.

 

And to whoever asked if the missions reset progress, they do. Every day.

 

Honestly This is just really disappointing. I wish I could swap for the other mission set because without extraordianry luck I wont get even a single mission completed with the time i can play in any given day.

Seems to have taken two hours to get 5 German kills yesterday and today.

I gave up on this once I realized I need 5 German kills in 24 hours.  I don't see 5 German enemies in 24 hours (exaggeration but common).

I have played all my British tanks until I got a win in each (17) every day. So far killed 5 Germans once, most battles there are 2 or less if you even get a shot on them your lucky.

I have yet to kill 5 German tanks in battles. I got to 4 before the reset.  On average I usually see 1-2 Germans per battle, sometimes none. It took me 20 battles just to get the 4 kills I had. So I'm not really doing the Anzio thing anymore on purpose. If I happen to kill enough for the mission, great. If not, oh well. I only have so much time to play due to having a job, wife and life. Don't like this special at all.

You would get the same results.

You do realize Anzio WAS DEFENDED BY ITALIANS TOO RIGHT?
Why is it the "Resistance" FOR THE AXIS SIDE AND NOT ONE OF THEIR DIVISIONS THAT FOUGHT THERE.
To quote Wikipedia Directly on the battle of Anzio for Axis participants: 
"
Axis participants: Nazi Germany, Italian Social Republic"
"135,000 German Soldiers, and Two Italian Battalions
4,600 Italian Soldiers Fought to defend Anzio from the Allies, YET HERE YOU SO EASILY THROW ASIDE AND DISREGARD THEIR PARTICIPATION.
"Some RSI Italian units fought in the Anzio-Nettuno area, especially since March; the land units were part of the German 14th Army: only the paratroopers of the "Nembo" Battalion were there since February, participating in the German counterattack. In March the infantrymen of the "Barbarigo" Battalion (from Decima Flottiglia MAS) joined the frontline along the Canale Mussolini."
The main reason I care is because my great-grandfather fought with the Nembo Battalion with the Germans during that battle, yet you just toss their history aside as if they never fought to the end to defend Italy.

Honestly I'd love to hear WG's apology and reasoning for this disgrace of an action,
