Well, 50 wins in HB looks like the next hardest-to-accomplish mission since 10 scout medals + survive weekend mission.

Not sure if i will even bother with the 50 HB's... Just not worth the 1 day premium and eventual 500k. There are easier ways to get credits.

Ain't gonna play ANY SINGLE historical battle! It's ok trade if they give us much bigger rewards for HB missions. How bigger? Well, the credits are probably not as big motivation as before because many players got Super Pershing. Maybe gold will do fine compensation.

Nice try making us playing HB.

I can make 500k. with losing minimal neurons ,playing randoms with the failed SP ,instead of HB.

But nice try...

Amen to that, easily the worst missions so far. But something has to be bad so that other things can be good.

i tried to do a historical battle last night, i gave up after 10 min in the queue, so if you need 50 wins, say at 50% win rate and each battle taking 10 min with a 10 min wait time it will take about 33 hrs of play time to make it, something which i am not prepared to do.

Meanwhile on NA: http://worldoftanks....ssion-july2014/ and something more: http://worldoftanks....-clan-missions/ (not huge rewards, but still nice addon, which we don't get at all).

They have only this nice and easy XP mission which gives you much more credits daily, you can take even 12 days of Premium (compared to ours 3 days...) and a T1E6. They don't try to force playing certain types of tanks, team battles and especially histerical battles which nobody cares about. WG EU, really stop inventing your own specials (you really fail at this) and just copy NA specials. Much better effects for all of us.

Bit dissapointed myself, will do one mission for sure, will also try HB to see if more people are interested in it due to the monthly mission.

When I yesterday clanced through missions I though "nice, good missions". Today I checked then with brains and I must say there's few bad fails.

 

Experience is the Key to Victory: This is good basic mission. Way to go, thanks WG!

 

Bro Time!: Another good mission. Gets players to platoon more, but quite doable. Way to go, thanks WG!

 

The Best of the Best!: 35 wins with LT or SPG while being Top5. This means something like 150+ battles, or more likely even 250 (you win 50%, you are 33% top 5, so it would be 210 battles, except LT and SPG generally do worse). LT's and SPG's can get top exp, but on average battle getting to Top5 is quite good accomplishment. I'd rather have seen this as win 50 as Top10. If you are not failing bad you get to top 10. Also reward of 1 day premium for this chore (top5 requirement) is quite little when using tanks that have much smaller carry potential than MT/HT/TD's have.

 

Ladder of Success: 35 wins with HT/MT/TD while being top5. Quite good, as ability to get top 5 positions with these tanks is better. Still I would assume something like 200 battles to get these done. 1 day premium is little low reward.

 

Side note to two above: Why Ladder of Success is random and team battles while The Best of the Best is for randoms and historical battles? How many arties or LTs over T4 there's even on historical battle rosters? Did anyone use their brains?

 

Axis Against Allies: Win 50 historical battles while being top 10 player. All nice, if you actually could get historical battles. It's waiting and waiting and then you might get to battle or not. Top 10 requirement is not that bad as teams generally are less than 15 any way. This still needs 100+ battles, and that is battles with long waiting times to get them. And everything to get 1 day of premium. Bad fail.

 

There is no "I" in Team: Win 75 times in team battles. This seems quite ok, but will need lot of work. For average player this means something like 150 battles, even with 50% win rate, but it still seems team quality on team battles is quite jumpy. So this might need many more battles. That means 5 team battles on average every evening. Or if you play teams only every second evening it's 10 battles per evening. Did anyone actually think what doing this mission needs?

 

Mission Accomplished: Nice good reward of 500k credits for doing all the missions. Until I noticed what it needed. At minimum you need that 150 team battles (50% WR) and 100 historical battles (with their massive waiting times). You should get Ladder of Success done on team battles. It's easy to be in Top5 when driving T8 on team battles and MT/HT are much used. But getting The Best of the Best done in historical battles is quite impossible, just because lack of arty and LT's in them. So you can welcome 250 battles with lights or arties in randoms to get it done. So we are talking about 500 battles for average player, and when we considering that average player is not getting Top5 positions so often lets go for nice 600 battle. So that gives us 20 battles a day, every day, if you are planning to finish all the missions. This is pure madness. For 500k credits. I'd rather play T8 premium for 10 battles, or T5-7 regular tank for 20-30 battles.

 

 

Conclusion: Daily missions are awesome and good. Month long missions are too hard chores and do not support each others. No idea who tough about those extra restrictions, but most likely he was just throwing things up and not thinking. Ladder of Success is ok, as it most likely get's done with normal playing and is pretty hard to not finish if you do There is no "I" in Team. Axis and Allies would be good, if Historical Battle MM would work and you actually would get your battles. The Best of the Best is ridiculous as you can't combine it to other month long missions (why exclude team battles, there at least you could use 13 90 or WZ or occasional arty) and Top5 restriction is quite hard for LT's and arties.

 

I'll do some daily missions just with normal playing and most likely get Ladder done easily. Rest are most likely lost causes for me.

What is the point to make the mission, when my premium account which I have from last mission is gone,  because today is impossible to play with all this lag and freezing.

I'd be nice, if the missions weren't restricted to certain modes. Team battle, platoon, historical battle? No thanks.

Basically this. And even if there are 40 players (been there and spent 5x5 minutes in the queue), MM still can't make a game :facepalm:

If no real improvements to MM (HB) comes in 9.1, those missions are dead as dead.
