Not sure how much this has been discussed, and I don't usually come on here to complain. 

 

The old TD, LT, HT, MT 101 - 401 missions were difficult, but good.  Over a month, you could get close to 300,000 exp for each tank type if you wished to do so, plus extra equipment.  You didn't need to play it all the time, you could choose if you wanted to complete them or not.  You could choose how many times you wanted to play those missions, and you could get the extra 10k exp for different tanks.  They were sufficiently difficult to do, I think, but you could also occasionally 'luck out' and complete them relatively easily.  Sure, for a newbie player they were a bit harder, but that was the idea...teach you how to be good at each of those types of tanks.

 

The new system makes no sense at all.  First off you are getting 12 times less exp per month than available through the old system.  Not only that, but you must play a substantial amount on a single week to actually make it at all...something that some of us don't have the time for.  And while some of the early missions are easier, for a newbie to get 50k of whatever in a week is ludicrous.  Plus, you can only apply it once to a single vehicle.  Not sure why WoT keeps "fixing" things that ARE NOT BROKE, but stop it.  And please put it back how it was before.

 

Thanks for listening.

max extra XP this version...over 28 day period (for example) one (ONE) batch of 25k XP ...25000 XP

max extra XP old version...over 28 day period ( keeping same length) (TWENTY EIGHT batches of 10k XP EACH...280000 XP

 

the only extras in this version is daily bonus consumables...a whopping 4 extra EACH over 28 days.

 

this version SUCKS!

 

and heaven forbid if real life screws up that particular week...with a full month you could really get 25k XP in 3 whole days!!

 

did i mention...THIS VERSION SUCKS???

I agree that Tank University is awful.


One problem not yet discussed is the difficulty of controlling where the 25,000 EXP from the Exam mission goes.

In the past, because Medium Tank 401 is a daily mission, there is no pressure to direct the payout to a particular tank. Also, a player has the simple method of refusing to kill the third tank to prevent 10,000 EXP from going to the wrong tank.

The reduction in the EXP payout makes it important to direct where the precious EXP points go. And there is no effective way for any player to control the last EXP point on the Exam mission to channel the payout. Scavenger Hunt can already be a trap, but the risks can still be managed. The Exam mission is completely unpredictable.

We lose 1.1 million exp per month with Tank University.

 

They only missions needing changing were the heavy missions, and the only change they needed to make was to include HE in the blocking equation.

Actually even that is worse. The 201 and 301 missions are super easy, pretty much every first game of the day I get both done but even for a decent player getting a 1000 base XP game isn't going to be that easy every day unless you play a lot.

Blocking missions are dumb to begin with, you don't really want to try and get shot and some heavies are just not suited for them. They should have been something like to X amount of damage to heavy tanks and/or X amount of kills of heavy tanks.

Yeah, the HT missions were a bit annoying.  There's a lot of HT tanks that don't block that much...I think the idea of having damage/kills against other HTs is a good one.
