Hi all,

 

I am currently struggling with completing MT-15 for the T28 HTC. I have tried my best to get 2000 damage on TDs, have come close with my STrv 74 but just don't seem to have the Alpha on my Mediums at tier 6-8 to farm the campers at the end of a game. My WR on my two tier 8 Meds is poor ( Panther 2 and Pilot). Do I simply keep plugging away or finish the grind on the P2 and get the E50?

 

I could abandon the Med mission all together and finish the HT one but I am stuck on HT7 (2000 damage and cap) and I am not getting on with the E75 ( but I have just unlocked all the modules on it).I have already completed with honours the Lt, Arty and TD missions.

Higher tier meds work better, low tier td's just don't really have the hitpoints, while if you get to farm the butt of an jp e100 you're already well underway.

 

And as with all the personal missions, don't focus on them too much, if you see you're getting there it's worth trying a bit, but I found that focusing on the missions just makes you tilt, play bad and not have fun.

It's not impossible to get 2K damage on tier 8 meds vs TD's if you play it enough and get lucky. But, on your tier 6 you might need more then luck tbh. I did that before they reworked it. So I did that on the tier 5 Chi-Nu-Kai. So I can't really relate to how hard it might be on mid tiers now vs before. The higher it is, the easier it will be ofc. So even if your WR is poor, playing the Pilot might not be the worst idea. As it's just a matter of time before you face a TD heavy team, and then it's just hoping you have a good scout and farm it as needed. As tier 8/9 so far today for me have been TD heavy.

 

And that HT mission is cap or decap. So do 2K, turn around and defend cap. No need to feel forced to push their base, that usually ends badly. It's easier to allow them to cap and then just reset it. As the mission can still be done by defending. And that's usually easier at times.

Get the US medium tier 9 with the autoloader, think its like t54e1 or something, the one before t57 heavy.

 

I legit did the t28 htc mission and then next battle i did the mt 15 for the stug having gone back to do that one

Find a couple of TDs to platoon with, and you're virtually guaranteed at least a chance of finishing the mission in every battle. Beats most of the other 'artificial' missions.

I struggled a bit with it myself, but autoloaders make it easy. HE and ramming are also viable tools when you need maximum damage output.

 

(Because going tunnel vision and ham-ram when you should try to win a match instead of going for the mission is so healthy for gameplay. :) )

I also had problems with this mission, but still complete it.

 

Try with a high tier medium tanks.

 

Tier IX is probably the best place for doing this mission.

 

You will meet TD's which have a lot of HP.

 

Good luck.

Some sound advice from Balcora on HT 7,,, defending a cap is way way easier than having to capture the base...

Like others have said, high tier medium tanks that are quite accurate and have a bit of speed. At the beginning of the game maybe look to snipe and support, and then in the latter stages look to flank and pick up damage at the end of the game. It may mean you choosing positions that will give you the opportunity to take out TD's which might not be the best for the map or the game, but that's sometimes the price of doing missions.

 

I see you've not gone down the US line as the T20 is quite a good tank to see how you get on with the mission. It's got 240 alpha which is the same as the Pilot, and so whilst you still see tier 9 and can play accordingly, you do get games where you're able to bully some lower tier TD's and maybe do the mission. So it's a bit of a compromise.

 

You could also look at the Revalorise if you fancied a French crew trainer/credit earner as well with 390 alpha

Do HT missions first. Those are the easiest ones. When I unlocked Stug IV i started with HT for T28HTC and finshed them in 2-3 days. Meds and LTs are the most difficoult, IMMO. 

But then I will suggest you to get E50. It got a nice alpha and tier 9 and 10 TD can get more than 2000HP (Jtiger got 2100 alone! :)).

That was a problem for me too Im not great with mediums I did it with the revorlarise premium as its 390 alpha made it much easier.

Panther 2 should have a good chance as well.

I completed this 2 weekends ago in the BC 25t AP.

 

I would suggest a tier 9 or 10 autoloader.

 

One of the biggest problems you will have is the small number of TDs in your battles (and lots of Meds also stuck on the same mission).  Every now and then you get a game with 7 or 8 TDs and only 1 or 2 other Meds.  In those games make sure you don't wast shots on non TDs (especially if you're using an autoloader with a long reload).

 

You're unlikely to complete the mission below tier 9.  There are too few TDs, the few there are are spread over the map and when you do get to fight one you'll find other players farming its damage.

In a high tier autoloader, when you surprise one you can often empty 4 or 5 shells into it for 1k damage.  Find another that's still healthy and it's job done.

 

It's the most annoying PM in my opinion.

I ignored the mission when I got it and completed the other four with honors instead.

 

Now I can just wait until I have a Tier IX or X MT (which will probably be my only Tier X for a long while!) and complete it then. I don't think the Type 61 will struggle too much, let alone the STB-1.

I was just thinking its a pretty good time to get this mission given that a number of players are grinding the new Chinese TDs

So players new to TDs possibly with sub par crews and the tier 5 and 6 ones have terrible armour 25mm and 35mm so HE will probably really mess them up.

Tier 7 and about much better armoured.

Problem is that the tier 6 and lower ones have no HP, so getting to 2000hp of damage to td's requires you to kill 4 or 5 full HP td's, so unless you find yourself in a match with a ridiculous amount of td's with no one else shooting them you're going to have a really hard time. If you're playing higher tiers the td' start getting some HP, which really helps for this mission. If you play against tier 8 and upwards td's you have more alpha and they have more HP.

I finally managed  to complete it without honours with the pilot. A good match on Derpenberg with lots of Tier 9 and 10 TDs. Unfortunately I got killed in the last seconds by arty so no honours. Back to the drawing board.

I do think the new mm made this mission harder. Before you could get 'lucky' and get mm-ed against a team mostly made up of td's, now that's almost never the case anymore. However, as it's pure dmg you are looking for this mission favors the highest tier med possible.

I find out that LT and HT missions are the hardest ones.

 

I'm still struggle with these...

 

For me, the easiest are MT and TD missions.

mmm... then I will have to ask for advices. Or sacrifice a goat to RNG. In my opinion those kinds of mission are more RNG dependant than HT and TD, so may be it's why I find them more difficoult...
