Yep, scheduled for us. Appears they have changed the stages a little from the previous grinds.

Starts tomorrow. 

 

I see there are very few which require a win........

 

Seems like good play win or lose will be rewarded.

 

ggwp WG.

Nice!
Looks like the stages are much more realistic in both terms of what XP you need, and particularly not relying on having a good team.

Most still won't finish all the stages, but it will drop the price to where its worth picking up.

 

Great to see WG has listened to the feedback from the last challenge :)

You need to play exceptionally well to earn 500 base xp in a losing team, and you will not get 500xp if you play poorly in a winning team.

 

This is a much better formula that gives incentive to play well. And wipes out the chances of those that previously were able to bot/yolo their way to the rewards,

Yep. 2 out of them all and I think that fits nicely into "very few".

 

500hp of damage, or top ten xp, you could play like a muppet and get that. 

 

And if you cannot get 500xp on a win then you should not be rewarded. That is a really low bar.

why not 7 days ? I can complete it anytime I want as long as in 10 days, as I say, just a piece of cake, when i say it's worth, then I'll get it, when it isn't worth, I'd rather turn off my PC and take a nap

Did some rough calcs

 

Even in the really scrub worst case scenario, we're looking at 300 battles.

 

You know what WG, you got a deal.

 

Guess I'll never get to see the last column drop down to zero

Spoiler

Its front is 50:50 against ASIA-standard tier 8 ammo (aka "sprem" for other servers), so it's not a bad anchor. Good for players who actually enjoy using armor, bad for players who think WoT is just tank-shaped counterstrike

Maybe, just saw my first one in action. It finished 2nd on xp in a tier 10 3,5,7 battle which we won. Though our 10's weren't too flash, our chimera finished top and me 3rd in a progetto.... lol
