I wouldn't say it was hard, anyone could do it no matter how badly they play but it's a lot more grindy, I sure did have to play a lot more than I really wanted to. Certainly not really worth it compared to the old mission which you could often get done in a handful of games. I just wanted to get it done today so I can buy the 30B at a discount this weekend, luckily I had the day off work since it ends today. Without a deadline I don't think I'll ever bother to make an effort to get them done in the future.

I like new missions more. It lets me focus on specific class for a week, instead of trying to do everything ending up doing nothing (at least that's what was happening to me with old missions). Gonna finish MT401 today. Just got Type-58, so 25k will certainly help to get it out of stock configuration faster.

i also like Old Skool better.i was getting around 25 batches of the bonus 10k xp per month...which was a GREAT help in training up 4 different crews in mediums. i did the tank U week...got the bonus 25k xp....but no more til next month.its always a shame when the better rewards get trimmed down and the missions to get them get more grind-y. at least i have my prem account to always help out.

 

bottomline:

more matches per capita will yield an unknown amount of real money spent.so increase real money intake...increase matches by increasing players (new players, events for returning former players,etc)

 

also increase matches by chaining-rewards matches or grind-reward matches. or both.

 

the game may have plateaued for increasing overall players that play...so only other option is increasing matches per player...grinds and/or chained stuff. its the way of these games. expect more in future.

I got 300,000 xp per month previously, with option to get 1,200,000 if I wanted.

 

Now I am limited to 25k per month with option to get 100,000 max.

 

You wanna guess which I think was better?

I never was able to get past 301 in the previous form.   With the new way I can get them done.  But I seemed to have gotten more goodies(consumables) the old way.

Didnt require any thought.  The old missions were better and paid better.  The medium missions were not hard like the light tank. Just 401 was a dumb grind.  Worse than what it was supposed to improve.

 

Please WGN pass the feedback on before we are stuck with this next month

The old 401's were all fairly easy, other than the heavy one because if you wanted to get it done fast you had to let people shoot you which isn't conductive to living long, especially in a heavy that doesn't really have a lot of armour.

New missions are trash.

25k XP monthly, instead of 30k possible in 3 days. 

Brilliant move WG, once again breaking something that works PERFECTLY.

More work for less payout. Weakness.

The only improvement in Medium Tank Exam over the old MT 401 is the possibility of “timing”  the XP award to make sure it goes to a stock tank. I was able to use the award to skip a painful initial grind. It would have been very difficult to kill 3 and wound 6 in a stock tank, and I like this feature.

 

Still, this is not worth the significant cut in the amount of XP awarded. I would be fine if Wargaming nerfed Medium Tank Exam to 10,000 base XP, but I would not even try for it again next time if they maintain it at 50,000 base XP.

I agree there, that's one thing you'd likely have a hard time doing with the old missions. Only problem is that because anyone can do the new mission if they're willing to put in the time it might lead to more botting.
