Probably the most useful prize is the abundance of silver. There might be a ton people,who could agree to me.

these missions are very welcomed to the game, it's perfectly fine to have them, they can be improved with time but they should really rethink the whole "you're forced to platoon in order to finish a personal mission" concept.

But, how long time do I have to finish the missions?
I saw somewhere that it ended 15th of February, another site stated I had 6 months, and some people tell me I will have forever to do them.

Actually, personal is the correct name. You get a mission that is assigned to you personally. Unfortunately, some of these missions that you get assigned are to take someone on board and help you. Technically speaking the wording is correct.

 

Having said that, it is annoying for people who prefer to play alone. Given the requirements they have come up with certain mission, I don't mind those platoon missions, else they would probably have found harder individual missions.

PERSONAL mission review:

 

1 - light tanks that just do suicide rush to get the early spots

2 - medium tanks that just drive chaotic for some good knows what purpouse

3 - heavy tanks that camp behind arty

4 - a td platoon of 3 players and then a couple more td's in the team

5 - at least 4 arty players in the one team

 

And the cherry on the pie...the PERSONAL...wich is mine...my very own mision...I personally have to complet that...but l have to play in a platoon...and the platoon must do X points of damage an at least one needs to survive...not me...one of the guys in the platoon...wtf is up wih that? And wy is it caled personal in the first place!?

 

Don't get me wrong, hands up for trying to give us a better gaming experience and bringing a new challenge apart from geting to a tier 10 but please try to think it through next time.

Wow imagine. The main point of the personal missions - trash forums,with "dictionaries" and why platoons should be removed.:teethhappy:

I always like playing with my clanmembers in a platoon. Or maybe you just suck in a particular mission? The Obj 260 missions arr hard,because the tank itself is OP.

The idea it's awesome, no doubt, but there are some problems with the missions, from my point of view, i will name a few:

- like it was stated before me, the missions are not entirely personal because of platoons, too bad the devs were out of ideas for other missions and had to add platoons;

- it lacks flexibility, it would be nice of we could chose what mission to unlock after the game, it wold prevent us from ruining the game for us and others while letting us doing our normal gameplay; city maps for arties and spotting lights?;

- light missions are harder now after the map reworking with corridors and bushes removed, "do you even WOT mate?";

- not everyone enjoys playing certain tank types, for me it's with arty, lights and some tds, my performance dropped a lot after playing them and doing like 20 quit rages in a day... Also i get insulted every 4-5 games because i HAD to play arty;

- some missions are not about skill; capping and putting an enemy on fire, for example, are about certain situations (nobody likes to cap) and rng;

I prefer to play alone too but to be honest the platoon missions were easy I asked in the chat got two random persons who wanted mission partners and it only took three games for the two heavy missions and four for the two medium missions.

The good thing is that even if you get killed too early the missions are so easy that the other platoon member can do them alone.

Also thanks WG for the chance to replay a mission just to get the secondary reward

Like others, I'm hating the forced platooning to get the final steps done. :confused:

Worst thing ever added to WoT. Good idea. Terrible implementation and effect on Random games. The awful thing being that the effect was totally predictable.

Just remove the stupid platoon requirement from these missions.

I DON'T WANT to play in a platoon.

I DON'T CARE if you can have better stats by platooning.

 

I play for myself and only myself [edited], I have my friends in real life and no they don't play WoT and no I won't force them to.

Wow, some people really, really don't like change.

 

Personally I think the IMs/ PMs Whatever they are called are a good addition, it gives you something to play for.
 

Yes it has had an effect on the gameplay, somewhat less now than when they first went in, but you can't blame WG for this.


 

All in all, I think it has been a very good move, but seriously, making one of my platoon go in arty for the light tanks? :'(


 

Peace out.

No time limit

 

every 6 months or so, a new 'season' will be added, but this will not remove the first lot of missions
