Hi,
I am amazed at the mentality behind WG's daily missions.  I find it amusing when you have to damage 7 tanks in one battle.  Most players find it hard enough to damage a few, let alone 7, especially for new players.  I also find it amusing that you have a mission which requires you to kill 4 tanks in one battle.  Now, killing a tank may be normal for most players, killing 2 is getting better, 3 and you are becoming a unicum and 4 in one battle is god like.  I seriously doubt that there is any new players who could kill 4 tanks in1 battle anywhere in the world.  So why do WG make this mission and similar one so hard for new players?  Who knows.  Maybe they just think it is a joke?  Also, many people including high end players just come to the Australian server because there are bot tanks, which is I think the only way to achieve these missions.  This leads to new players being wiped out by seal clubbers to get those daily missions done, thereby also cutting the number of potential new players as they are beaten down by unicums to complete their daily missions.

This is just plain stupid.

 

Just wondering what you other players think.


It's not about how good you are, it's about how stupid the rest of the team is and how stupid the enemy team is which makes a good game.

Damage multiple is just another reason people play arty. It's a piece of piss in clickers. Would be great if wg changed that one (and all the other missions requiring arty).

 

The others... yeah, you get to a point where you realise you're only doing the missions for shit you don't really need anyway. Re rolling to improve the shit you get was often stupid rng. So you start to stop caring about bothering to re roll. And then you realise a lot of the time you were only logging in was actually just those stupid rng re rolls. So you stop logging in.

 

Then life starts improving. It is indeed brilliant thinking.

You realise both those issues can easily be solved by playing tier 5 and below on ANZ.

On the first point, these daily missions aren't marketed/targeted especially for "new players", but for anyone. So they're not meant to be designed or measured on how new players do with them.

 

That said, it's certainly the case that for the examples you mentioned they are much easier to complete at low levels.

 

OTOH, if you wanted to focus on new players, _other_ missions like accrue 5000 dmg are going to be much harder for them at low levels than at tier 10. So on the whole, you'd probably say they are balanced... kill/damage count missions for low tier players, and hp damage for high tier players.

 

On the last point, seal clubbers don't exist because of daily missions - given you could get such a mission to get 4 kills usually done in a single game. They exist for other things entirely, that would remain even if daily missions didn't exist at all.

 

So all in all, I'd say having daily missions is a bonus for new players, and the 4 kill count example you gave would be easier to achieve at their level than it is for experienced players.

A reroll only every 4 hours and for one mission is the mood killer.

About 10 years ago...? Looks like around the time you discovered WOT.

 

Coincidence? I think not.

Yeah, this is really the stupid part.


Also no reroll at all on the bonus, but I guess I can semi-understand that.

I think we need to focus on what's important here.

 

Let's talk more about bacon sangas: is the preference crispy, just cooked, or somewhere in between? Need to know meta. 

 

With a bit of egg? hash brown? Cheese? What's the loadout?

 

Do we have anybody that's 3 marked a bacon sanga on server?

Streaky within an inch of its life.

 

Just a bit of butter or spread as the first load out while for some maps you might want to add in some sauce if you get one of the dryer maps. But the for sure you need a full load out of quality bread. You want something that will last you thru enough chews to combine with the bacon goodness for best late enjoyment.

I prefer the BLT build. It's more meta and makes full use of all three slots.

With field mods, you can upgrade that to a BLOAT loadout. Onion and avacado makes the BLT build op.

That's getting into p2w territory. Tho the discounts on avos give the f2p crowd a chance.

I definitely run it with a fried egg and the right ketchup ratio is critical for an ace sanger and top bun result.

Friggin Wallet warriors.


Run you bacon with (consumables) ;
1- fried tomato and spring onion

2- locally produced tasty cheese
3- cracked pepper

This way you can stock up on premium bread (munitions) that may boost your cooking efficiency from "snack" to "light meal"
