I know, I stink blah blah blah and I'm sure a bunch of you blew right through todays Mission. This isn't a whine thread either, Missions should be hard. But dang! I'm just wondering what % of Players will accomplish todays Mission. Seems like Pack frenzy out there AND a lot of Tier X battles, just a hard day. For those of you that complete it congrats, I know you earned it. Please, tell me how easy it was for you (Sic). :P

Took me 2 games. Yesterday's mission was a lot harder, kill missions are the worst.

Took me a dozen or so battles before I finally scored two drag out defeats as top tier.

I keept getting teams that won in 5 minutes so I simply could not farm enough damage to be in top 3 while playing actively enough to get into top xp as well. Can't carry harder when enemies die before I even look in their direction :D

So I just played normally and waited for team that decided to lose in first minute, then I just farmed damage on cheeky attackers. Minimap is enough to detect such teams early on :]

 

This marathon was quite irritating, as it imposed strict limit on tanks I could play :/

Aye. Although kill-stealing contests between bunch of Skodas were a bit refreshing take on random battles.

This is why having some lower tiers can be very useful like the B2.

i may lament the difficulty and my lack of ability to finish these missions but i realize that there are very easy missions and very hard missions and everything in between.

however, i do not like having to complete mission before i can work on tank rewards (higher and lower tier restrictions) and on track mission lest i complete the mission in a tank other than t 27 and screw up my ability to get the better reward.

it seems to me that t27 missions could be a choice that is locked in with each level. 

if i am not being coherent, i mean, when my t27 is destroyed i would like to run the on track without fear of losing out on the female crew member because i am running french tds while waiting to get my t27 back in the garage.

 Took me three games. I could have easily had it in the second game but I did my very best impersonation of a Muppet and died to 15 tank destroyers at the same time.

It took me 3 games today and I was glad when it was finally over.  Today was really just lucky, but the 5,000 Base XP mission was the worst day for me because the losses (that I cannot control) are going to happen. Today's wins were good ones though:

 

 

 

I think this tank is okay but I'm looking forward to seeing how it stacks up in Frontlines tomorrow.  I never thought that much of the Progetto until Frontlines.

 

Good luck with y'all's missions!

Given what little has gotten through the grapevine and the video below people there might be another round of black market or something similar so maybe the skoda will be up for sale hopefully for credits. It is odd that WG did this event at all with a skin as the top prize regardless if you were a paying player or not without the option of just buying it outright. Keep an eye out for any news about Tuesday next week (27th).

Trying to get it done in T-27 and its sucking, 6 games in and not even close. Going to give up and do it in other vehicle.

 

 

UPDATE: Ate dinner and came back and actually completed it, so I am a happy camper right now!!

I've thrown in the towel. All those top damage games I had through the week, they're not happening today. (Bouncing way too many shells off of tinfoil to expect that RNG is going to go my way just once.)

Took me 17 games today to complete the 10th mission....

 

This one was by far the toughest because it required a bit of luck... the number of times I missed it by less than 1 shots worth of damage or 30 or less Xp had me wanting to tear out my hair.

 

Glad to have my Skoda fully decked out (I really like it), but honestly right now I'm so sick of playing it that it is going to sit in the garage for a week or two.

I'd rather be LUCKY than GOOD in this game, I really would.  Today started out with a great scenario and the Ace in my very first game.  I played a couple other tanks for fun, then came back and got deleted in the first 2 minutes of a battle on Campanovka when I was just dumb and fired at the arty that our Progetto lit up.  That lit me up and 4-6 shots received later, I was gone (worked so hard to get to that bush too, but seeing the chance to shoot arty was too irresistible).  Then played my first battle this afternoon and got my 2nd Ace and the mission accomplished.  Probably won't play that tank again in pubs but will give her a good look-see in Frontlines.  Love the camo skin on it.  I really like to have those when they're available. Although I own all 4 of the Tier X's, I will never own the Grille to be able to see what she looks like.  Could never take my Hetzer crew away from that little beauty...

Got it done with 30 mins left of a 2 hr booster set, I'm certain you'll get it man.   But what to do with the chicks if you've already built a 4 skill male crew?  Wait until crew 2.0 comes out and you can change them to another nation?  Keep the males for the tier 9 and build a new female crew?  Decisions, decisions.....
