Hmm meh...I'll do my 5x but other then that there's nothing for me. Already bought the tanks i wanted during the weekend special, same discount. The missions are just bad, I'll never do these "40-50k xp+top on team+within 2days"-missions they're meant only for the greatest of nolifers and the damn rewards are pathetic for the commitment.

The first part is crazy. Given two days only for these missions? Over 100 battles and 120k exp in 48hrs in two days to get three days of premium account? .

I 'm sure somebody has screwed this up. Should be three days, from 13 August at 07:10 until 16 August at 07:00 CEST (UTC +2). To get LTP will be much easier than this. Win 25 battles and gathering 100k exp in 4 days shouldn't be any problem.

Roughly requires between 22000 and 28000xp, every night averaged for the next 6 nights (realistically Wednesday night to Monday night inclusive), while in the top 10.......

 

Don't like to sound too old fashioned, but I'm not sure that's even safe trying to encourage players to play for those sorts of time periods. Sorry, but that's silly.

Having to complete those missions 3 times for the premium is insane. I thought it would be just once. I don't think the dates are wrong. Just wed+thu to complete them.

So a minimum of 90 games in the top ten every time, with an additional requirement of 120k xp's on top of that, to be earned in just TWO days, in exchange for 3 days of premium...how about NO?

 

What a ludicrous set of targets, and it's all but unacheivable unless you already have premium and are willing to sink some MAJOR time in over that period (and I do mean MAJOR).

 

As an example, over the past 48hours I've played approx 60 battles, with a 60% W/R and an average WN8 of just over 1700 on a non-premium account, and I've received.......27k base xp's.......so how the [edited] do you expect someone to add an additional 93k xp's on top of that???? It's not like I'm some terribad player who gets dragged through games by others ffs!

 

Seriously WG, either be honest and let us know that you've screwed up with the requirements, or simply admit that this is a non-sensical target for 90% of the playerbase and little more than a cheap (and poorly veiled) attempt to convince people to buy a premium account - just to win 3 more days of it for free...

More like 99-99.9% of the playerbase. And even with premium it would be pretty tough. 45 battles MINIMUM for 2 days during the week.

120k xp in two days is ridiculous for 3 days premium.

I got wednesday and thursday off, and my work schedule for the weekend is rather tame. The gamescom special won't be a problem for me personally, but even I don't see myself getting the 3 days premium from the first set of gamescom missions. 15 repair kits and 15 fire extinguishers each twice on the other hand should be quite doable. Three times will be tough.

According to the data I upload from each game onto VBaddict, I'm averaging around 488 base xp's per game on a non-premium account, so in order to hit 120k xp's in two days I'd need to play somewhere in the region of 246 battles (no guarantee my x2's will be good games), so close to 123 battles per day, which even at an average of 5 mins per game means it would take me over TEN hours per day to manage it, and if I happen to get bogged down at lot with 7-8 min games or more that would be closer to SIXTEEN hours a day for two days in a row...

 

Even bots wouldn't manage the requirements as whilst they have the time, they won't earn the XP's needed. Many players also have work to go to and aren't going to spend 8 hours at work, then up to further 16 hours playing WoT, to then go straight back to work, and then back on the WoT 16 hour grind again afterwards!

 

Even on a premium account I'd probably need to put in 70-80 games per day which is still at least 7-9 hours per day whilst on premium ffs!

 

I've seen some badly thought out missions before with tough requirements, but even the IS-6 and T26E4 missions were easier than this - and for a MUCH better reward at the end of it!

 

Awful WG, just awful...

I do not even play enough to get 100k in a week, let alone 2 days. Especially considering there is a rather large event going on over those two days. Not sure if WG has heard of it, its called Gamescom. Id like to you know... watch some of that. Not spend 2 days playing a stupid amount of World of Tanks.

 

Rather disappointing special i must say. I wouldve been happy with some very easy to complete missions, even if the rewards were not great. Giving us such hardcore missions over 2 days seems like a bad decision.

Great specials but it's a bit limited on the prem tank sales. I get that Gamescom is in Germany and so the prem tank sale is only on German tanks, but no E25 discount again is very disappointing. And still no sale on consumables, that's been ages now.

 

Btw - if anyone didn't realise, the LTP is a brilliant tank and well worth going for, probably the best tier 3 Russian light prem in the game (I have them all, it's better than BT-SV). It has big camo (best of any tier 3 non TD tank) - camo paint, vents, camo net, binocs, punchy gun, excellent invisi-sniper.

Those missions, what on earth? :teethhappy: Forget it, I'm back to enjoying the summer time and the occasional WOT when I feel like it. :glasses:

Those missions are insane even for WoT...I'm gonna use my remaining slots to buy tier 4's,complete the x2 xp, sell them, buy other tier 4's, complete the x2 again and so on. And it's time to clear the dust off my Churchill III, that thing is an xp machine. Luckily I have more time today since the WoWP gamescom missions are starting tomorrow (and they're much easier to complete anyway, you need to have 15 victories/day and you get 4 premium days and 1 tier 5 premium plane+slot).
