65k exp over three days, for one measly garage slot? (Because 90% of the population here doesn't want a 3-day TLV during the week)

Look, don't get me wrong, I understand that the mission is designed so that people that play well get the rewards, but I think the canyon you're asking us to jump is larger than the carrot waiting at the other side.

 

I think from this mission set, people are likely to try to earn the achievable rewards (crew exp/combat exp etc.)

 

I think the TLV system requires an extensive rework. Perhaps use a factor as 'available for X amount of battles'?

At the moment, I know I'm reluctant to even bother trying out a tank which doesn't have a a good crew, full equipment and a bit of research, knowing well that if I invest in time in making it playable it's going to be locked until I pull wall my wallet out.

Sure. But the TLV's are an added extra to the other set of main specials. Such as..

  • x3 First victory bonus
  • 1.5x Crew exp bonus (Stacks with the First Victory Bonus)
  • 50% Off crew retraining / skill  resetting
  • 80% off Crew personal data changes
  • 50% off Tier 2-5 Japanese tanks .. With a 1.5x exp and 1.5x crew exp (Which all add together)
  • 30% off Tier 6-10 Japanese tanks .. With a 1.25x exp and 1.5x crew exp (Which all add together) And add with the other 1.5x crew, and 3x first victory bonus
  • ETC

 

So for example, using a tier 6 or higher Japanese Tank, and finishing in the top 10 by Exp would see all the below bonus's kick in together.

  • x3 first victory
  • 1.5x crew
  • 1.25x exp
  • 1.5x crew
  • + bonus's from the booster system, and the usual from premium, raf, strongholds, etc.

 

 

There's a reasonable amount on, for those that aren't interested in the 2x TLV missions

 

Regards
Tan

Good point Tan. Fully noted.

To the community: assuming
- I want to leverage the bonuses to grind the MT line;
- start from scratch;
- have enough gold to retrain crew as needed and move equipment;
- have sufficient free XP to bypass the lemons in the line;

Which tanks should I play to develop a crew and maintain good performance?

I grinned out 150,000 exp per day during the x5 exp event.

Its a free garage slot and the AT15a rent is used as UK barracks space for those who play a lot and have a lot of tanks.
Most of us have been a bit spoiled with so many free premium tank missions as of late. Speaking of free premium tank mission any idea when the next one is ? I have a FV202 waiting to be converted into a tier 8 premium tank.

 

STB-1 for me :great:

Shad0: You know that time when there was a King Tiger on 2 HP and another King Tiger on Full life ? And the King Tiger rammed uphill in slow motion, for 1 HP and then kept fail ramming until he was killed by the a 1 Hit point tank. Was the stupidest tank ever
Shad0: You are now that Noob KingTiger
Me: D:

For time limited vehicles, if I install equipment such as Enhanced gun laying drive, Large-calibur tank gun, ect. I can get back all equipments without any removing cost after they expires?

Hi all,,

 

Don't you think the winning lease tanks are in another word less beneficial to the players ? Well you only get 3 days,,right then you still need to installs with some equipment plus consumables and maybe add few APCR,,,only then this tank will be superb.

At the same time 3 additional equipment cost you 1.5 to 1.6 millions,,for new purchase also 30 gold unmount borrowed from another tanks.Does it right ? Lucky for you if your depot have extras equipment then.

 

My point is,, Don't you think it would be much sweeter for the winner getting a lump sump of Credit or Gold and get on with it ?

It doesn't mean we don't appreciate the lease tanks,,but ding dong ding dong,,,worth of effort just last for 3 days !!

Makes sense,,right !!

Thanks !!

"The limited-time vehicle" will stay in your garage forever until you remove it yourself (you can remove it by right click and remove)

but if the rent time expired, it cannot be used to any battle, there will be some kind of sentence "Rent expired" (similar to destroyed tank in garage)

 

As I said it will be in your garage forever is include your vehicle crew, ammunition, consumables and equip in the tank until you remove them yourself

Removal will go like usual, use gold for special equip and else

If the TLV came with 100% crew, camo and fully upgraded - then I would play a few battles with the tank despite not owning it.  It would still be a crappy reward though.
