 And this is just for the T-55A (which I already have... I'm just trying to free up orders). 160 seconds? This much devastation doesn't count for 160 seconds?? The arty missions are ridiculous. You know what else is ridiculous? 159.37...

Might not be the best arty to try that mission in. You need to maximise your splash radius. I am pretty sure I did it in my Object 261, that was before I got my T92/GC.

 

Wait till you see SPG-15 for the T-55A. Be top XP (hard enough) and assist on 2300 hp of damage. For honours, do 3000 damage and win. That's an incredibly specific set of circumstances!

Wait til you get the 279e mission where you have to do 1500 seconds of stun in 10 games. You pretty much need the stars to align with map rotation and team comp 10 games in a row.

Arty missions took a bit of a hit :P with the stun changes.   If you hit while they're already stunned your assist is going to be watered down a bit.

 

Potential stun is counted so if they kit you get credit for the full stun.  But if you kill them then no stun potential is counted.  So on the stun missions try to just splash and stun that low hp red tank.  :facepalm:

 

If you haven't already see the link in my sig there may be a few tips there (about 2/3 down the opening post that I killed 3 tater and onion sacks up composing) that can help either in the opening post or the linked thread by Remount.

The trick to doing them is to NOT do damage. You want near misses, particularly against groups of tanks. This mission is just like the blocking missions, you have to play badly to get them done.

I'm not saying you can complete these by stunning your own team but you can complete these by stunning your own team.

Please tell me that's not true. I cant be tempted to go even farther to the dark side in pursuit of these pixel reward tanks. I'm not strong enough to resist.

Maybe they've fixed it now but when I did it you could. People got caught rigging them sometimes.

Oh hey, I did basically the same thing on the same map a while back, except I traded 400 damage for another 2100 assist.

The secret to stun missions is the stock gun.

Average of 14-15 second stun times, but a spicy 18 second reload.

Spoiler

True. I did the 160 sec stun mission using the stock gun on M53/M55.

It's not true.

Lemmingrush did an April Fool's video with this theme but then in his next video he explained that this isn't actually possible and talked about how people believed his 4/1 video to be true.  Take a look - Lemmingrush's videos are great if you haven't watched them.  (His rant on the upcoming nerfs of the 430 and Progetto was hilarious).
