Good weekend to leave the German tanks in the garage.  :hiding:

 

Which is exact;y what is happening, from my observation less than half the normal number of German tanks.

 

Stupid mission with consequnces obvious to anyone with an IQ in double figures.

 Hi guys, I love being focused in my german tanks while having to do 3 times the work for  the same reward.

I'm seeing plenty of German tanks. Smoked 5 of them in my first Yanky game (T49). :great:

The mission goes well with my light grinds, so it's business as usual with a little bonus after a while.

the missions are not balanced well:

UK / FR / US have to kill 10 german vehicles to receive 5+5+5 = 15 consumables

germans have to kill 30 UK / FR / US vehicles to receive 15 consumables (although chocolate only)

 

is it intentional, or just a mistake? maybe UK/FR/US should receive only 5 consumables of their nation

 

This mix provides an incentive to play both sides (Allies and Germans) and as there are three nations against the Germans they should have no trouble getting those 30 kills in short order :)

While I understand the logic behind this, however with all the killstealing and nation focusing going about it is actually easier said than done. My 2 cents.

Don`t want you to think that I am bitching about it, I did the french, british and american missions but I think I will pass the german ones. Now I know how unicums feel when they are yolo`d and focused down. :)

gone are the days of any discount for low tier premium tanks.

Would have been ideal for people who enjoy this stuff. Would have been good for fail re-rolls who like sealclubbing new players.


 

Its all about profit nowadays... as if they are saving for a rainy day.   rerolling nowadays as if peoples first accounts were so trash they were embarressing.

That is what the M2 Light loaded with APCR for is for and for good measure clans platoon in them like the XO with 50k battles and one other member with 27k battles from an unnamed clan that sounds Germanic (a few minutes ago). I am certain they thought it was hilarious. There are not enough low tier (5 or below) to do what you suggest.

Was that difficult to have a MM with one side of Germans VS one side of Allies ?

 

( with the French together with Germans )

Wargaming..one problem with these "kill x type of tank"..is that people kill steal. A ton.

I had a lot of hair ripping fun for today when people managed to steal 50 allied tank kills from me. And majority of these were intentional, sit around until enemy is almost dead, then perform the killing shot kind. With tanks that have no mission to kill that type of tank.

 

It would be better if these types of special missions were "perform % of damage to enemy tanks of x type".

 

Very least I got good mileage out of the savings..got myself a M4, Easy Eight, M7, and Jagdpanzer for great prizes.

Add to that, have had a lot of battles in the last couple of days with no enemy of the type needed to kill for the mission, with the increase of nations (a good thing) the amount of targets for these sort of mission diminishes, making them harder and harder everytime, due to lack of numbers rather than skill of the player.
