Mission C

Achieve a Defender medal in a Random battle.

 

Block Quote

Mission E

Achieve the Top Gun medal in a single Random battles.

 

Because what this server really needs is more players base-camping and\or kill-stealing.

Agreed....In fact, on this server, invader and confederate would be much better options if they wanted to encourage active participation in games, rather than the common "lemming rush" or "camp at spawn" playstyles commonly witnessed.

Don't you think you've made this mission set quite difficult?

 

Most are achievable through a decent grind, but the Defender medal for mission C is a joke - you'll have everybody on the team squabbling over defence points, and you've only got three days to complete it.

The worst part is that if you don't get this Mission C completed, you can kiss your SU-85i goodbye.

    I still think it's morally wrong so in fact I'm right.

The defender mission for mission C is done in a med. Most meds are quick enough to flex back and reset capping opponents.

 

15k damage in an SPG isn't that hard in an evening's play.


 

20k damage in an evening is certainly achievable, albeit out of higher tier td's.


 

Destroying 20 tanks out of a LT may be a challenge in an evening however, but fairly reasonable.


 

Top gun out of a HT is certainly doable at tier 6.


 

So I don't really think it'd be all that hard - maybe platoon up and work on missions with clan mates?

I think you've read the missions wrong - although they're categorised under each type of tank for the mission name, it doesn't say under the requirements that it needs to be from that type.

Just let it wash over you.  Once you wake up you will understand.

Imo those medals mission should be more inclined to the roles of the tank type

MT- confederate (seriously, defender? You will see MT start to lemming train then magically going back to base and wait for 70 capture points then reset)

HT - steel wall (top gun? Let the kill steals begin)

Though other tank type missions are not dependent on this but...

LT - scout

SPG - High calibre 

TD - tank sniper

Not rocket science to explain the tanks are best represented by which medals

 Nevertheless I am grateful for the discounts, but the time periods are making me confused what should I prioritise on getting, not sure what's the point of separating the different discounts? So that players have to plan and estimate their spending ahead instead of credit grinding until the last day and spend them all? Not sure how does it benefit anyone...

Tier VIII to X Light Tanks?


It doesn't matter if they couldn't tell their arse from their elbow in the dark with the help of a map and a flashlight. Get enough of them and eventually, you're gonna lose to them.

Topgun are no problem, I have hundreds and hundreds of them
Defender are much harder to come by, and with the mission it will be chaotic and even more idiotic pub matches as everyone tries for a defender.


Please change defender into High Caliber or Confederate

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:

I'll get straight to the point. Three things:

 

No garage slots sales? Sad, I was hoping to buy some

 

The discounts state that there are "Tier VIII to X Light Tanks", I'm pretty sure it's just Tier VIII, and not IX or X as well.

 

Seriously, you set Defender and Top Gun for heavies? Okay, in a normal battle, getting Top Gun for a heavy is not that rare, and you might get defender sometimes in any tank. But you want to encourage us to base camp and kill steal, really? Wargaming, you're going to see everyone playing medium tanks and camping on those three days, and everyone fighting over defense points. I dread those three days when teams will be 90% medium tanks, and everyone base camps and waits for the enemy to cap.

 

Top Gun for heavies is still okay, but what's going to happen on the actual three days? You're going to see teams full of heavy tanks fighting over kills, pushing each other into the enemy and waiting for allies to fire before shooting. You might even see people teamkilling just to get that extra kill. Sure, those two awards might seem realistic. It's not rare to get Defender in a medium, or Top Gun in a heavy, but if you specifically set a mission that asks players to get those medals in the required tank classeveryone is going to play mediums and base camp, or play heavies and steal kills.

 

Not only that this isn't the sort of gameplay you should encourage, but really, it's going to make those 6 days hell. Literally everyone will be fighting for kills and defense points. It's unrealistic. Confederate for mediums is far better, spotting damage for light tanks is better, and potential damage is better for heavy tanks. Really, don't encourage us to get awards, you're going to upset the game terribly.

 

Please review this, Wargaming. I like the missions, but you should be careful in what those missions are. You don't want the game to have 75% of a single class type in all battles.

 

EDIT: I noticed the specials also says that "Tier II - V HTs" are on discount. I think they forgot that there are no Tier II or III heavies in game (yet).

The mission A, B, C... do not dictate the tank class. Only for some mission within the window period.

My thoughts too - which brings me to the question.....  can you buy tokens for missions you didnt complete?
