Yep, got the IS6B out of that deal.  Had no hope on the medium.  Was not impressed with the IS and wish I'd played for the T34 instead.

 

I will say that the IS6B was a winner in the sense that I'd been looking at BUYING one.  Which would have been a big mistake....:amazed:

 

I expect that my normal play style of "couple hours at a pop, maybe a couple three times a day on weekends" should have me in "be careful what tank you play next!" territory this morning. 

 

@Tap:  That's interesting!  I look forward to hearing if you actually get anything out of it, other than the satisfaction of a spare mission!  :)

I've had good luck in my JPII in FL, dusted it off just for that purpose. Max out your camo and clutch break so you're good at both distance and street fighting by the turrets

not exactly "just" playing.  I could be remembering incorrectly, but I thought there was some pretty somewhat difficult missions tied in.  At least it seemed like it at the time, maybe I was going on vacation at the time so I didn't have the ability to play during a chunk of the marathon.

How do you know how many codes you entered? I was sure I got all 28 but those are disabled.

 

I don't think there is a way to tell, I think I had at least 26(combined with the freebies it would put me over 28), I only completed the first mission 19 times so far.  The only way I can think of knowing other than asking support is when the game stops you from completing the first mission anymore then you are out.  So since it hasn't stopped me I know I have at least 20(but I knew that anyway)

True.  It was doable for all three, but you had to be committed.  The T34B and IS6B were relatively easy.  Relatively. The Mutz was Nutz.

It was a lot of grinding for sure.  You had to play a lot, especially if you wanted to get all three tanks. I was able to get the IS-6 B and the T34 B for free but I was well burned out by the end of it.  I took a couple years off, and I guess during that time they had a really easy month long mission for a free E25.  I'm sorry I missed that one.  I was told you pretty much just had to make sure you logged in and played every day of the month, but didn't have to grind too hard for it.  

 

Well, I'm joining the club of having the mission stopped on me at 27 just before I could get to the 30K.  I've submitted a ticket and am waiting for a reply.

I got 23 games credited and now any more progress is unavailable until I get a "Secret Sign Token". Where the heck do you get one of those or maybe I just maxed out the number of codes I entered for Feb. I thought I got most of them but, aside from the free Exp I didn't reach, I did get a lot of personal reserves so that's cool.

Same occured for me and I thought I had more than 23 codes turned in.

I know for sure I put in more than 22 codes, but it stopped me at 22. 

 

This is the problem with these "secret missions" you can't tell you status ie; how many you entered until it is too late.  Then WOT tells you oh so sorry, too bad.  Don't get me wrong, I like the 200 personal reserves and the garage slot I got, but if I did what they asked, I should get what they said I would get.

 

Kind of peeved.  I could use the 40K and with the 2 award days, I should have been at least to 26, possible 28.  I think I missed 3 days, but I should have gotten Feb 3 too which should have put me at 27.

I am having the same issue as a few others have mentioned.  I know for a fact that I did not miss a day of codes in February, but support says I entered.....9.

I got some free Natural Cover directives and I noticed they seem to only work on some tanks and not others.  Anyone else have that issue???

 

Here's a link the post.  Please let me know if you have any answers.  There seems to be not specific pattern to which tanks it works on and which one's it doesn't.  

 

Thanks

same for me. i put in a ticket a few hours ago, but no response yet. It's stopped at 23 for me. I know of only 1 day's code that I missed 9the 16th), I know for a fact I got more than 21 codes (there were 2 given for free, not 1 as some have hinted at)...maybe not all 28, but definitely more than 21. Not a big deal since I don't need the xp, just kind of annoying when you take the small effort to check for codes every day and only mostly get rewarded for it lol.

Allowing us to see a running total as we go would eliminate a lot of headaches for them also.  Now instead, they're having to deal with all of this at once.  My understanding is that what they look at is very accurate and the firm data on what they saw redeemed in their system. It's complicated, because you know there are people that know they entered like 10 codes, but will submit a ticket saying they entered all of them just hoping for compensation for something they never did.  So they do have to protect against that.  And I think a running total would help prevent the scammers.  I thought I had entered them all, then I went back over a list where I wrote down all the codes I entered.  And I realized I missed a couple.  Luckily it was just 2 and those bonus tokens got me to 28 but it stopped me at 27.  Point being, if I didn't have that list I could have sworn I didn't miss a day.   

 

Still waiting on my ticket also.  Since it's the evening, I think we might not hear anything until tomorrow morning.

I noticed the same thing... I believe it is with certain "crews" not tanks -- if all your crew has some (but no all Camo research) it seem like natural cover does not help you at all -- but if you put a crew in pace that have 100% camo -- you get +10% -- and if your crew has NO camo skills at all -- you get +% equal to the type of tank you're driving...

 

At least that's what my brief observations are telling me....

I think the e25 was the only "marathon" I ever accomplished(it was the only one where it was ever truly log in and play regular and you get it).


I JUST got stuck on 27 now.  I could have sworn I entered more than 24 or 25 but I could be wrong.  Not having any kind of way of knowing unless you write each one down really sucks.  event was pretty poorly designed as a whole.  If I don't get that last token can add that 30k xp screwed over on to the 100k for the north/south fiasco to get 130k total because WG cant properly run their events.

Finished my run about an hour ago. I ended up with 29 completions of the Scavenger Hunt mission and 1 of each of the others (Collect 5 CC Codes, Collect 11 CC Codes, Collect 18 CC Codes, Collect 27 CC Codes and Collect 28 CC Codes). Interestingly, I had to actually end up in the top 10 an additional time to get the Collect mission rewards (6th time for 5, 12th time for 11, 19th time for 18, etc.). This was per the tracking of the number of completions for the Scavenger Hunt mission as displayed on the Victory/Defeat screen.

 

Most importantly, (at least, if others have the same outcome that I had) the 10,000 EXP was actually awarded on the 28th time I placed in the top 10, not the 27th, and the 30,000 EXP was awarded on the 29th time I placed in the top 10, not the 28th (again, per the tracking of the number of completions for the Scavenger Hunt mission). I was able to get the EXP rewards on the vehicles I desired but, hopefully, the heads up will help others do the same.

 

Lastly, thank you once again to anyone and everyone who contributed to this thread; especially GAJohnnie. With your help I was able to get a grand total of 312 consumables, a garage slot, and 40,000 EXP! Congrats to everyone who persevered.

Stuck at 26 completed.   As with others I know I missed a couple -- but entered everything I found on the forum... IF I really was given 2 freebies... I thought I'd be at 28.  Ah well  -- 230 boosters -- I now have 1603 -- just need to get my butt in gear and use them use them use them...
