Convert your Free EXP to Crew EXP again, all the way 'till September! But wait, there's more. This month, complete a new mission series and get access to the new FV201 (A45) British heavy tank - permanently!

Is the 201 going to be a keeper? Or just a rental as they've been doing recently? If it is a keeper then hell yeah, if not.. well.. xp boosters might be handy..

Lol gg, I see that mission requirements can vary across servers.

 

Edit: I see the details.

Noobs don't snipe because they are good at snipe; noobs snipe because they can't do anything else / People don't lose because they lemming; people lemming because they are losers

Do not confuse team strength with individual strength; a single enemy killed in a 1v3 is worth more than two enemies killed in a 4v2 / Lanchester's Square Law predicts in a 2v1, the side with 2 will end with 1.5 tanks remaining, so if you won with less than that remaining, you're actually noob, not pro

When you are not losing because you outnumber the enemy, your other flank is losing because they are outnumbered; it's just math

Law of mirror: When you are holding a 1v6 against the enemy, you own team is also getting 6v1 held by the enemy

Noob self-balancing theory: When you release a good tank, enough noobs will flood to play it, until the server stats become average again

Can someone explain the requirements for the mission like I'm a 5 year old? Also can someone confirm this isn't just another rental tank and we actually get to keep it?

 

And is it any good?

 

Or don't, either way I'm off to get another beer.

Cronk, the mission simply put, is to get 15,000 exp from battles on tier 4+ vehicles and repeat this 30 times.

 

Each time you get 15k exp, you receive a token. You need 30 of these tokens to get the free FV201. As the event lasts for only 30 days, WG will also sell these tokens in store for those people who do not have the time to play everyday.

 

Bonuses from premium time and personal reserves should count towards this target. 

 

Hope this helps.

It says that to get the tank you'll have to complete the missions for a total of 30 times, but the missions award you dream tokens to unlock the tank, which through the weekend missions you can do it three times (and get three tokens) as opposed to the once during the weekday
So is there a point in collecting tokens at all or do you have to get 30 tokens in total? I do sure hope it's 30 tokens :P

Seems far easier than NA. Their last mission which is to get 200k exp and kill 200 tanks using rental FV201 within 8 days is crazy!

 

GoodLuck to everyone~

yeah 30 should be enough, but at least you need maybe around 3 weeks to get it all
assuming you always online and can accomplish each mission everydays

well worst case, we can purchase some token via shop anyway if theres not enough time

The easiest way to do this mission:

- Get 22.5k exp in weekend = 3 tokens.

- Get it three times in that weekend = 9 tokens.

- Get it for the entire three weekend = 27 tokens.

 

Lastly, get three tokens from weekday and hello baby caer.

 

One most important question though.

Do following exp bonus:

- Premium account.

- Personal reserve for exp.

- x2/x3 dailes

count?

That... is a good question. We will know for sure tomorrow afternoon when the mission starts. Can someone be so kind as to post battle results then?

Its a permanent tank... rentals are usually only a added extra to existing weekly promotions.

And you shouldn't really need to be deciding between tank or boosters.. you should be able to get both easily.

Yes, but you forgot the bit that makes it easy..

Weekends you can get 3 tokens a day..

 

So its not 30 tokens that can be earned in a month.

You can earn a mass more than 30, especially if you take into consideration mission start times and server day tick-over times.

Awesome! Thank you very much, Tan. This mission is much better than the variant on the other server, I'll make sure that I'll get one :)

What time do the missions reset, at 0000 in the morning with the daily bonus or at the 13:30 daily reset? I ask because if it's the latter then the weekend missions don't start until basically half the weekend is over with and continues well into Monday.

Outrage is too exhausting to maintain for years on end. Numpty fatigue has set in.

The rage of 2013/2014 has sullenly ceded ground to apathy and despair, there is no viable alternative.

Did these start today? Better start grinding my tier 4+ tank again. Just the servers luck that it's Aussie school holidays... *prepares for W/R to go down*.

 


 

Sidescraping is a game mechanic abuse - TOG1R. PM ingame if you want to plat. Something crazy below this; Apparently Aussies are bad@tonks.

I and some of my english friends play very late at night till the early hours of the morning, about 11pm AEST to 8am AEST.
Just so much better, cannot handle 7pm aest, I'm sorry but aussies suck at this game and are usually reallly annoying (I am aussie).

Seems like a good idea - I'll be trying for this.

My only question is: Why do we need to earn more exp during the weekday when we have less time?
