Going to be hard to get the Japanese mission. Not too many people drive them.

Ezz grinding them.  Good luck to him with that...

 

Actually.  Tier 2 will still be full of TurKeys.  Run a pub stomper and get 16 in 2 matches.

Gain 2x EXP bonus by being Top 3 in your team for damage dealt.

 

So basically, what you're saying is that when a player is facing a choice of two actions:

  1. Do something that gives his team an 80% chance of a win, but means he won't make top 3 damage,
  2. Do something that gives his team only a 50% chance of a win, but gives him an 80% chance of being in top 3 damage,

You want to him to take the greater risk of the loss, since though the expected return for the team is higher for option 1, the expected return for the individual player is higher for option 2.

 

In other words: sacrifice the team for the individual.

 

Would you mind explaining your game design decision? I find it rather difficult to understand.


All pre-9.5 tier I through VI tanks played and elited.

@Stormtroop3r - I tend to see more Chinese tanks around. Notably the T-34-1 and WZ-131 and sometimes the T-34-3.

 

@Ouch - Unless there's a theme basing stuff on a single non-vital metric isn't the greatest decision ever. Damage screws over scouts and anything that isn't really damage oriented. XP is probably the best option generally though there are some things that will contribute to a win but not necessarily give you XP.

Strangely they started moving some of the requirements to XP, but still for some reason leave damage in for others. WG logic i guess.

As a WN8 junkie I like that decision

At the moment the main focus on the Friday bonus was to put focus on company, 7v7, strongholds .. over randoms.

Getting the x2 exp isn't hard when playing things like strongholds with your clan.

I wonder how many people did actually manage to complete it and how many games it took.

I was one chinese tank short... Was meant to log on this morning before work to finish it off so my day of premium could be put to reasonable use, but forgot... woops.

 

Had a bit of fun yesterday chasing jap tanks tho. Went tier 2 in my cruiser... first few battles nothing. Next battle, malinovka encounter... 3 te ke go hill... clip one, clip the next, clip the last. Jap tanks... done!
