I previously complained about how a lot of events have been excessively grindy for the casual gamer. I can only play from time to time and then only a few hours at most. Things like Frontlines are impossible for me to get to high Prestige levels. Nevermind the EBR event and other similar ones.

 

This was such a nice event to take part from my personal perspective and meant I could do it while still being able to leave the house - so thank you!

Seconded! Thank you for a fun, non-stressful set of missions. :medal:

I agree, also, plus if you use the historical tanks, which I has some of them it makes it more enjoyable playing the missions.  At the 10 mission now, so hopefully will get that soon.  I have been on LT-15 for months now for the Stug, I think I may just give up on that one and just play and enjoy.

Yeah I like the fact you can do multiple day's missions  to make up for missed day. The last one like this I missed the tank be one day. It was the one for the T-34 Shielded.

As someone who is lucky to get in maybe an hour of playtime a day, this has been a delightful change. Sure it's only a tier 5 that I will probably never touch, but if this is a new direction to earn free tanks, I'll take it.

The tank was a great choice, particularly for new people:

- a simple grind not requiring advanced skills or tier tens

- a great (but not OP)  premium with a 100% crew loaded with enough XP for one skill 

-13 days to get 10 missions done.

Excellent point about it being non grindy OP plus one.

 

And kudos to WGNA for the event.  Because per OP it was pretty hassle-free and the tank is a good free tank and it comes with a nice free crew as well.

 

Don't forget guys and gals it's not over just cause we got the tank and crew.  There's a few left and that last one gives the unique skin.

Agreed, this was a very player friendly event. Exactly what WG needs to do to keep players.

Usually when you stop worrying about it and just play, that is when you get it done. :teethhappy: At least that has been my experience. Just enjoy the game and let the rewards fall where they may.

I specially like that missions did not lock after each day

...and its not tier 2! And thanks for a crew that can have instant 6th sense!

 

For events in future that are grindy, can we have the premium account actually do something to help?

Yes, it was rather refreshing not to have the feeling of needing to be playing a sizable portion of the day just to get 1 step done. I got Saturday's and Sunday's steps done today.

The trickiest part (and i use this term loosely) was to get the 7 damaging hits on TDs - going to tier 5 today fixed that instantly, what with all the French M10s rolling about.

I agree. This was a good reward for an attainable set of missions. Cheers to Wargaming!

 

That being said...Hypothetically, if a scrub was going to miss a day and not get the really cool skin for the tank, do you think they'll sell it in the store any time soon?

Not for me, of course. [Cough] I'm asking for...a friend. ;)
