Thinking of climbing the Swedish tech tree or half way there already? In that case, we have a bunch of nice extras to help you on the way!

What do you have to do to achieve the missions ?

 

Other than buy back the lower tier tanks that we've sold, I mean !

Oh, gee, thanks. I have four female Swedes, but no gunner. I can't recruit a gunner. I could have gotten a gunner during the Holiday Fest, but it seems that only the RU server got the early notice about how to combine the lower value ornaments. So I am breathless at this latest announcement. :sceptic:

Madness indeed.
I just saw a suicide rush from a swedish LT tier II, with the accuracy that only a 50% crew could give.
I have the LT tier III (and both tier Vs).
And I'm thinking too about rebuying the other tiers II-IV for the PRs.
For me would be around 200k cr (after selling them again) for 30 PRs, 1h.
Credits for PRs is an interesting new trade, but 5 games with 50% crews I don't get it.
This mission should have been released with 9.17.
Pity that the TD discounts only work once...
Nevertheless thanks for the extras.

I like it. Nice rewards. I don't know if it's EU exclusive mission, or all servers have the same mission. If it's the first case, WG EU has redeem itself for the lack of this Weekend Special. If it's WG NET mission special, thank you WG NET, nice of you to think about your players.

Is that the mission, "play 5 games" ?  I presume it tells you in game, but not in the snazzy new "News Portal".

As others have said, the idea is pretty nice but the execution is terrible. Why didn't you do this when 9.17 launched? Now I'm half way up both trees and so have already used up the discount on buying the early TDs. Do I just not get the rewards or should I re-buy the earlier tanks, losing money and rendering the TD discounts I earned pointless? 

 

You should have done like the festive levels rather than tying missions to specific tanks. E.g. if I have the T6 tank and TD and play them I should get all rewards from the lower level too. 

 

At the very least you could have announced this earlier so we could have known to keep the tanks.

 

E:

Also, why don't you post what the missions actually are on the fancy missions page? Seems like a rather large oversight. Plus, not all Swedish tanks are heavy tanks.

5 games in my case: LT tier II, MT IV, and TDs II-IV. 1 game with each.

I wonder what is so special about those missions that one can't get more information without a desktop computer?

So we can expect something like this instead of monthly top of the tree event?

 

And it would be nice to know what the actual missions are.

Don't think I've sold any tanks yet, except maybe the tier 5 medium, which I hated. I can't see the actual mission. Is it to play 5 games?

 

The rewards from tier 4 and up are not too bad. Anyways, I will just continue as I had planned, but will put in a bit more effort grinding as it's a nice credits bonus. By the way, I'm assuming the value in brackets is just the amount of credits you'd have to pay to buy the reward. So you only get the stuff which is not in brackets and only half of what's in brackets when you sell it.

 

So it's not that good this mission after all :)

Just one, the condition for each vehicle is fight a battle.

The Madness indeed continues, of them breaking gameplay because they are invulnerable on ridge-lines unless you have arty that is paying attention.

The idea is good, but as someone stated above, the execution, not so much.

It would've been better to have this event when 9.17 launched so that it would stimulate the actual grind, instead of just free XP-ing the tech tree.

I think that you should give all players  who have at least one battle with every Swedish tank the coresponding reward.

 

I skipped the tier II TD and the tier V medium, so I'd have to buy them for the reward, but for the rest I think it would be ok to receive the reward.

 

I've only kept the tier VI medium as it is a really nice vehicle. I'm at the Leo and UDES 03 with the grind, and I don't think I'd rebuy all the others just for a reward.

GJ WG GJ another fail and too late anouncement coz many players are already at tier VII, IX or X and ONE day after the tree u anounce these missions. U make people rush the freaking tree coz of discounts at TDs and then when they are finnaly at top tiers '' Oh here, get more missions for the low tiers''. Who can explain this to me ? What the heck just happened ?

Lol, they must be very annoyed that the Swedish tech tree did not generate as much income as they had expected. So a second special focused on Sweden forcing you to buy low tiers as well as high, means those two lines got lower attention than the CZ line.

Do you remember such generous special about another newly introduced nation or line...i dont.

Nope, still have 0 interest in playing Swedish tanks. Funnily enough I also have 0 interest in personal reserves so I guess it all works out. :rolleyes:

I suspect that it's to encourage people who have not yet gone up the Swedish line to do so.

 

Seems like a common sense marketing ploy to me.
