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

The game was already broken. It's just broken into smaller pieces now so that the broken elements have less of a % share of the brokenness.

Thank god you don't have to actually win the matches to do the missions. As far as I'm concerned, Swedish tanks aren't much fun to play, so at least you save some hassle that way.

Suggestion for WG staff:  

Please consider linking mission completion to games already played with the tanks, that are registered in the player's personal record (even when the tank is no longer in garage). This way people don't have to rebuy tanks they already sold and save everyone a lot of anger about the issue of event bad timing and not announcing it in advance.

So these tanks became so unpopular due to the last min change to over match mechanics you had to dingle carrots to make people play them. Yeah no thanks. I made it to the t9 td and t8 heavy. Anyone considering. Don't waste your time.

Hi,

So in the announcement it says that there is a mission for Every single one tank in the tech tree. Yet there is no mission for the tier 1... gj

This is a really nice mission ....but why hide missions .. it would make everyone happier if you went back to the events page so that everyone could see what events are coming ...  now people are left frustrated as they have bought tanks up the tech tree and missed the missions

As I see WG tries to promote Swedish tank.

Why? Not enough people play them?

Personally, I do not want to grind another tank line just for the "joy" of grinding another tank line.

Well I played 4 games for the level 2 & 3 tanks and had a 100% record .. of losses.  The games are insane - lots of people with 50% crews just playing a game for the reward I guess :)

I'll wait until they buff the Swedish tanks.  I climbed all the way to the tier 3 TD.  Played 2 games in it.  It will sit idle in the garage for half a year, I guess.  :hiding:

Correct me if I'm wrong but is Wargaming very generous? For example I don't recall this happen for other new tank lines, but the Swedish TD line got huge discount by completing the Christmas tree which is not very hard to do, and now this along with the Swedish Girls.  Are the Swedish tanks very unpopular in general? Especially the Swedish TDs.

My thoughts exactly, and considering my stats are somewhat similar(a little worse) to yours, I'll follow your advice....thanks for saving me the grief and time.

Greedy WG....Dear gullible valued customer, please don't see through our marketing ploy and play our new lines and spend lots of real money having to retrain your crews each tier......yup.....the madness certainly continues.

I can see many Swedish tanks in literally every random battle. Do you really think they are unpopular?

This is moronic. Why wait until people are halfway up the tech trees?

 

If you wanted us to play Swedish TDs, you should probably have made them more appealing to get into, than skips full of whale excrement.

Lol this playerbase is so toxic.

 

Thanks WG for the extra free stuff that you didn't have to add to the game, but did anyway. Some of us appreciate it.

I normally take the same line. But this seems more poorly thought out than usual.

You have to love WG giving us 0 (zero) heads up. I already sold all those crappy tds and I won't rebuy them just for those missions.

Instead of having people excited about them, you got people (at least this one person here) irritated by your lack of any communication (no surprise here though). Good I speak Polish because at least WG PL gives their community heads up on weekend specials. Wish someone in Paris would think the same. :P
