This is one of those moments that I wish I could be in front of one of the developers in WoT so I can tell that person what I think about their silly competitions.

 

ATM, I am struggling to climb the Experience Challenge ELITE because it is not that easy to be in the top 3.

 

There is too much RNG (on purpose or not) and also the last 2 experience challenges are mainly meant for the 1% in WoT. So they always benefit from the high rewards. Thanks WG you always so WISE for the benefit of the FEW!!!!!

 

I could say lots more but I am well annoyed with WG and I might say something that I shouldn't.

 

SO I LEAVE IT OPEN TO THE FORUM!!!!!!!

I thought the Top 3 was easy :) its the 50k and being the Top 1 is pi$$ing me off. 

 

I think it might be you :)

This.

 

More like the bottom 1% would have any sort of issue.

There is plenty of time to do the Elite one, unless you only play occasionally. Just play your best tank and it will happen.

Top3 is easy. Top 1 for 50k is a grind. Its just possible that someone else earns 1 experience more, despite you get a 1000+ base exp game. And if you do not like to do daily doubles with aiming for first place, it could easily take most of the month. Acc with exp reserves and premium advances faster as well

I dunno man, I have done this challenge while playing mostly the french TDs on my way to the Foch 155. And that is not an easy thing to do. :)

 

The problem might be you. Have you considered improving your gameplay? I am not saying it is an easy mission, cuz it is not. But it is definitely doable if you simply try to have good games. 

 

P.S. Thank you WG for the garage slot and the 1.5 mil credits, it helped me buy the tier 9 Foch without having to grind more credits. :coin:

That reward is hardly anthing to whine about, though I saw it coming.

Can't say I'm trying very hard, haven't played much randoms, often platooning with another good player - still at 30/50k on the last "challenge". Mostly from playing T9, others from doubles at T8/9.

If you are struggling to reach top 3, the last mission will be impossible for you so why bother?

Same here, not quite completed it yet, just under 3k left but pretty much done just through Foch games and getting top XP with the Foch is not that easy. 

 

You have a whole month, not sure it can be that hard.  

 

Plus how was the T-34-85M missions hard? Everyone has one, the total games played on the T-34-85M jumped from just under 2 million at the beginning of July to over 6.4 million at the end of the month. Over 4 million games in that tank in one month on the EU server which shows how many people got one. 

 

Good shout on selling it though, didn;t realise is was 1.5 million credits worth!

I suspect you got a free premium tank "T-34-85M" for doing nothing at all for 13 days. As that was meant for 100% of the WOT population... As even bots had a chance to get it. So that the difficulty goes up is not that unfair is it? As we don't need tier 6 full of Tigers as there are enough T-34-85M's already.

Not that many want's to talk to him about this one. More want's to talk to him about the last one.

This is just another marathon with a really bad reward and a hard final objective for the average casual player (like me). 

 

It's designed to make you play a lot of battles during summer, which is the lowest player count period of the year.

 

WG do this in World of Warships very frequently and many people just ignore these missions. 

They don't realize yet that this is like having no missions at all.

 

Just ignore this marathon and enjoy the beach. :B

It's not based on RNG but skill. Play better

T34-85M was pretty easy - and meant to be so.


This one is harder, the word Elite pretty much being the givaway. I probably won't complete it but then I know i'm probably not good enough to, mayhaps like OP.

The OP doesn't mention the t3485m mission anywhere in his post (and his post isn't edited so didn't used to).

I completed stage 3 on Saturday and now have 7-10ish of the 50k to go in last stage.

 

Sunday was the 6th , so that's 25 days to complete it.  Unfortunately I'm on holiday for 9 days, including 2 full weekends and virtually all of the upcoming x5 event so there's  good chance I wont get it.

 

It will be annoying if on the 30th August I'm on 45/50 done, but hey ho, there are much bigger problems in life than a garage slot and 1.5M virtual silver coins.

So you're an average player, but you want to get prizes available only for really good ones. Overreaching a bit? :sceptic:

The Elite mission was pretty easy. The first two got finished in about two days, the Elite one in about three days and now I'm 25-26000 in the Best of the best, all while playing the AMX AC 48 and Foch. If I can get that high XP values in what is regarded as the worst line in the game, it must be a whole lot easier in every other tank.
