That won't be as easy as it seems, if other infos are right. :) But indeed, it's worth a go :)

Pretty weak that people who bought the KV220 or type62 with the message that it would be super rare etc. And now everyone can just get these for free. Ridiculous!

Not for free. Time, rage @ tomatoes, pills, vodka, whiskey, drugs and who knows what... so... not for free. It's actually the more expensive way of getting these tanks :D

25 times and it's once per day, i will pass this one ! :hiding:

 

Lets calculate a bit...

 

With average exp of about 600 (without prem).

It'll take 21 battles for light tank mission. Including 571dmg/battle and 571 spotdmg/battle, PER DAY!

with heavy missions needed 23 battles. Including  870dmg/battle and 1,1 kills/battle. PER DAY!

and this must be done 25 times, within 30days... so if you fail to complete missions more than 5 days, no "free" tank for you... :trollface:

 

combined, 44 battles per day, I will pass this also!

I have only 2 days when I have played more than 44 battles.

and the spotting damage on light mission might be hard, because of the tomatoes that don't understand shoot the spotted enemies.

other requirements are likely doable.

I think making people play that mission for 25 days to get the tank is problematic. Only being able to miss the goal five days means that people will have to grind out 25 kills and the corresponding damage every day, yet they will be unable to control external factors that might limit their play time, or even the duration they can play each day.

Making it 'Get 625 kills, etc...' in a month would mean that people can reach the goal much more comfortably in a weekend grind. But I guess this mission format is a way to limit the amount of players who get the tank while at the same time maintaining the PR line that everyone can now get a super rare tank outside of clan wars.

complete the mission and you will get gold for it if you already have the tank (the gold it costs to buy the tank only)

25 times and it's once per day, i will pass this one ! :hiding:

 

Lets see; I am an above avarage player, i get 674 avarage xp per battle. Lets assume that by the time i complete the xp part of the missions the other parts (spotting, damage) are completed as well.

 

KV220:

For 12500 xp I have to play 8,5 battles, completing 25 times takes 463 battles.

Lets say an avarage games last 7 minutes, this would be 3245 minutes, 54 hours of gameplay.

 

Type62:

Same calculation ends up 500 battles, 3505 minutes of gameplay, 58 hours.

 

Conclusion: if you want these 2 super rare tanks, you have to play for these mission 3,73 hours a day.
