Why is this On-Track a second time, when we've still never had the T-100 LT or Rheinmetall Panzerwagen be On-Track?  If it was another mistake, it would be good if that could be shared with us.  Thanks

 

IKR? i swear this line was on track just a year ago, and there's what, 30 SOMETHING TIER 10's RIGHT?....also not to mention the Progetto 65 was on track again after being on track only a few months earlier, that sounds like a screw up, seriously who's the one deciding these? :facepalm:

I've had the Sheridan researched for quite some time... because the T49 is just a joy to play :trollface:

 

How is the T49? worth enduring the CMCD and Bulldog? :p

the cash back model was much better for those of us with pretty much everything researched.

 

agree 100%, i have 3 tanks from the line and free credits would be real nice.

Cancelling progress every day has made this a worthless event for most players.

I have premium and usually most of the tanks in a line ( all the line from 4 to 10  in most) but it takes me 3-4 hours to do 25000 on a normal day, who plays that much except the poor 'free to players'. They won't have premium so will take 4-5 hours.

I finish the last broken on-track using boosters. It took 6 1hr * 100% XP to do the three that I had left to do. No way I am doing that again, only a couple of those left.

I might get 3 days in a three week period that I can spend 3-4 hours playing WOT so I have no chance of finishing the on-track.

A while back I would regularly do  an on-track in a day but the last couple of years WG have nerfed the rate of XP earning by about 30% to allow for the use of boosters. This has made an on-trade a much longer drag if you don't use boosters all the time.

I don't expect to play WOT much now, the on-tracks were an excuse to log in every day to do the doubles.  So thats one premium account less for WG, well done!

It was On-Track in December 2017, but yeah, there was no good reason to see it On-Track again when we still hadn't seen two of the other Light tanks On-Track, and when there were 18 tanks more overdue.

 

We actually have 52 Tier X tech tree tanks now.  Something I talk a lot about in my reddit series is that since On-Tracks now start just once every 3 weeks, instead of once every 2 weeks, as it used to be, that means we will only start a new rotation of all 52 lines once every ~3 years!  That's absurd, AND that assumes they don't have any repeats, but they do all the time!  Most players don't even play the game that long!

 

The March Progetto was a mistake, in that they forgot they had it On-Track back in October.  They told me that at an event I recently intended.  For sure, the same could be true for the Sheridan.

T49 is great, more fun than the fake Sheridan.

WG just can't afford to give away any more Locusts. :teethhappy:   Color me cynical, but my guess is that WG would like you to burn xp boosters to get the 24hr missions, so that you will buy more boosters.

On Tracks were my favorite mission now with the 24 hour thing they are not worthwhile.  Well it will save me lots of time playing WOT they forced you to use other tanks rather than just a few better ones but the 24 hour reset and limit killed it, which may be their intent as they have tried to stop them in past.

I don't know... I got the T49 before the light tanks lines were expanded to tier 10 and I still enjoy it immensely. There is something sweet about erasing RHM's and Skorpions....

Having the "On Track to Tier X" mission reset your experience every 24 hours completely destroys most players' ability to make any progress on that mission.  Really really awful change.

 

Agreed 100%

Bumping with the hope that someone from WG sees this. The daily reset for on track is discouraging.

Thank you for contacting Wargaming Support. 

I see that you want some clarification with the event time of the On Track to the XM551 Sheridan. Let me help you on this. 

Take note that there has been changes made with the On Track missions and therefore missions will now have a daily reset timer. If you haven't complete the requirement within that day, it will reset back to 0. This is how it works now in the game. 

We hope this clear things out. If you have other questions or concern, please visit our FAQ page or contact us again if you need our assistance.

Seize the day, Commander! "

Which is absurd. And also confusing, as for some reason, the progress I made in my Chinese light tank didn't reset for the one match I played last night.

That's too bad that they're standing their ground on this. Appreciate you reaching out to them though.

 

About the Chinese light, that on track had no daily reset at first. Then it was frozen after some issues were found by WG. After the missions were unfrozen, it went to a daily reset.  It was then extended with no reset (but no discounts) as we see it now. :trollface:

I've not played wot much since they shat on the on-track.  The times I have the number of players has been way down for the time of day.

I remember this happening before.          There will be nothing but BOTs playing WOT soon.

Wow, just wow! Reset progress every day?? Why don't you just ask your players to go away.  Better yet, just shut down the game. So far nearly everything you have done lately points in that direction. SMH.:facepalm:

Why did they change the 25k from being progressive over time/days and went to doing it all in 1 day?  It will kill the on track event if you don't have a whole line of that tank.  Most people won't want to do the grind in 1 day of 25k xp.

I really don't like the 25k mission resetting every day.  I'm sure a lot of people don't have the time to grind out the full 25k exp in just 24 hours.

I'd like to thank WG for helping me decide not to bother with this on-track. I've had the T-49 for a long time, since before the Sheridan was added. And since the wheelies were added I haven't really enjoyed light tank gameplay as much, preferring med play by far. As well as hvy, td, and even arty play. But I was about to go ahead and grind thru, since, y'know, on-track.... I needed that little push to help me say FK it. And WG gave me that push. TY!

I don't have the time to commit.  I will get the T10 when I get there...

 

On track means nothing to me now.
