I do not have any arties in garage atm, nor any crews. Made it to this mission with the Bishop before the stun mechanics were introduced. It would be kind of nice to finish it with the same vehicle. A paying of homage or something. :)

 

The mission doesn't sound impossible at all to me in theory as it doesn't require stunning. Would just track tanks and hope people shoot em. Basic wait for the stars line up kind of thing. Might actually be easier than the 2k damage the mission required before rework.

 

Actual question: Do you think it's doable or should I just get the Hummel which I have unlocked?

 

I do realize the next set of missions is just about stunning and Bishop is out of the question for most of them.

 

Spg-15-1

Sounds plausible to do by tracking, but you do handicap yourself a bit. But then again, I kind of respect that kind of sentimentality.

I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be possible in Bishop.  Stunning a tank doesn't guarantee that your teammates will shoot it and cause damage no more than tracking them does.  I think you will just have to play enough battles and have a bit of luck it will eventually happen.

 

The next update will allow you to platoon with Bishop and two tanks.  Having some friends to help you is always an option.  Good luck.

Well alrighty then! Thank you for your responses. A plan is hatching: grind 300k more silver. Buy Bishop with gear and crew. Destroy dreams while printing cash and get the girl. Ride to sunset.

 

Will report success here when the time is ripe.

The only mission I didn't use the Bishop for was to splash 2 tanks with 1 shot. I used the GW Tiger for that and it took me a grand total of 1 shot. I got Mega lucky. Bishop is good for all the other missions.

The only problem I see using the Bishop (+ Bert) for this mission, is that it too good at damaging and killing your targets yourself. I wish they had gone the light and heavy route of combining the stunning, tracking and damage done.

 

Ps, also on spg-15-1 on my second account, holy crap is this thing still op as all [edited].

The lack of Splash dealt out by the Bishop and Bert make them bad choices for this mission.

I'm sure I would have made it in the long run, but I copped out at the end and bought a Hummel. Problem was, as captainpigg said, even though going for tracking would have worked, I just found myself going for damaging shots instead. 

 

Also gave Bert a go for bigger hp mm but imho it wasn't an uppgrade to the Bishop.

 

Got the girl yesterday with Hummel and a few games later same mission done with honours. Used stock gun.

Congrats.    Hummel with a stock gun is a good combo.

Technically doable:

I know it was only 835 assisted damage in this one, but just one extra detracking hit on any tank would have done the trick(or maybe a low roll when I hit that Churchill for the second time so it would have been left with more hitpoints for my team to farm upon)

 

For that mission it's probably better if there's many heavy tanks in the enemy team though.
