Hi all, has anyone heard about any changes to personal missions for SPG's with the 1.5 update?

Just looking at some of them, well more specifically the ones involving stunning.
Some, such as getting 200 seconds of stunning with the reduction to stun that 1.5 brings will be far more difficult than what they are now.

 

I know in the past WG have made changes to personal missions when required, but I haven't seen anything published yet.

I think i heard that they would be using potential stun for those missions. 

 

I suspect they will leave it for a while and see how it goes, then adjust as they have done occasionally.

I have been having a lot of trouble completing the final SPG mission for the T55a. Because of these nerfs to US arty, now that mission has become 5% harder.

 

If WG had any sense of fairness they would reduce the mission requirements by 5% to compensate

I guess I will just have to wait and see then.

currently working on the 260 missions, think I might be better off purchasing the 155-58 for some of them now I think about it.

 

cant remember what I used for the T55A final mission, have a vague idea it may have been lower tier US but not sure.

The +1 matchmaking was a nerf for SPGs too, because they were almost as effective against tier10 tanks as same tier. If you are bottom tier in a 3/5/7, there is a larger hitpoint pool, the tanks are often slower making for easier targets, and high tier games seem to have a better chance of lasting longer. You could stun an E100, and get the assist when a JgPz E100 smacked it for 900 damage. You dont get that same level of assist with same tier matchups

 

I am playing the tier8 US arty, tanks are dying too quickly for me even to get close to finishing the t55a mission

Use the tier 8 for any needing crit hits etc, the TX sees too much armour.

 

Just had a game in the CGC, the stun nerf is huge. 

 

7 damaging shots for 113 seconds stun. I'm not sure if it is only actual stun or potential stun recorded, I don't think the other arty fired at my targets, they were all close range ones (into the valley between the hills on Murovanka). BUT 4 WERE DIRECT HITS.

 

 

Kiss goodbye to getting those high stun per game or average per game missions. Maybe you have to use the stock high rof and accurate guns to do this. I used the small gun in the 53/55 to get 330seconds of stun the other day.

I just want them to remove arty requirements entirely from the 2nd series of Personal missions. Weaselling those in as hard requirements was  complete bullshit.

Kept the 155 55 for this. Optimum mix of RoF and stun imho. Could probably trade speed for more shell speed though.

They need to remove SPG from all and any mission requirements . Period .

Sig number 6 gone . In Armageddon - Day 1.  Note the date .

You're a weird mob . I'd like to go quietly into the night . I understand Mods are here to stay . I understand Mission / SH / CW rigging is here to stay .

I'll not bother the forums with these things . Let me go in peace . Not sure though why I cannot try and get cheap gold if it's ok for others to do .

Stock high RoF guns are the still the obvious pick for these missions for me.

 

Needing to get confederate, cause x damaging hits, number of stuns etc its RoF not the big alpha.

 

Had a crack with the M53/55 and was still able to get 292 secs stun with the small gun. 

 

Just gotta keep firing as soon as its loaded, priorities are

  • multiple tanks in open/behind cover
  • single tanks in open/behind cover 
  • recently spotted multiples 
  • concentration points where hts fight regardless of them being spotted. 

Averaging 20 to 25 shots per game in the 53/55, the first one or two shots are always blind because nothing has been spotted yet.

 

The in game indicated stun is usually increased by 60 to 80% in final game stats.
