I'm talking about dealing 2500/3500 damage to TDs. I've completed the T55A MT-15 mission but without honors before 9.20.1, and I've done all the other missions (MT-1 to MT-14) in the Obj.260 set, but no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't manage to deal even close to 3500 damage to TDs in any of the matches. Probably because I don't have a tier 10 medium yet...

 

So since the patch, I've been playing with the T55A and Type 61, a couple dozen battles...to try and complete the T55A mission with honors to get an Order...and the mm just decided to only put 2-3 TD's on the enemy team every time...not even joking. (Is it rigged???)

 

I wish I could write a whole essay on this, but I'm not a good writer... I just came here to ask the community, is this mission too hard? To those who have completed it: how did you do it? I would really appreciate some help with this mission, it's driving me insane. :confused:

Haven't reached the mission yet (stuck on another mission atm), but I reckon it wouldn't be too hard to do in grand battles, where there would be plenty of TDs to feast on... (or them on you, ofc)

I guess so, but since I don't have a tier 10 medium... yeah... dangit.

Seems possible to me, but only with a very lucky game and on tier X.

I'm struggling to get it with honours and I have 4 t10 meds to pick from. I thought it might be easier on Grand Battle but the tds all hide at the back and even though I can survive until the end they die too quickly from allied arty for me to farm the damage. I don't have any autoloaders though so its not that different to the Heavy PM were you need to do 12k combined, I needed the Mauschen to complete that specific mission too.

The idea of a free t10 tank is that it should not be easy to get. Some people think mission rewards should be available to anyone no matter how good they play.

Funnily enough, there have been a few threads recently complaining about the increase in TDs in the MM.  These missions can be done in grand battles, no?  Getting that kind of damage against TDs should be very doable in GB.

I think the previous version of that mission was more doable. You needed to kill 2/3 TDs that are at least one tier higher then you, and then as secondary you had deal 3/4k damage and survive. At least as far as I remember. Nowdays, with the new heavies meta, there are rarely enough TDs to be able to find 2/3k HP in them. And when you consider that you also have teammates, who are hungry for damage themselves, well you've guessed it - all outta luck brother.

With the old version you could just farm credits in your Tier 8 Premium Mediums. You're getting into Tier 10 Matchups all the time anyways, you might as well get lucky and find a couple of higher tier TDs to finish off. Now even if you have a Bat Chat 25t (and I do), you need a full Tier 10 matchup and very specific map where you can survive till late game and then go blitz the campers and hope that they are not 183s, E3s and Jegaroos. Althou you kinda need them to be, for the health pool, but I'd rather not get shot or have to shoot at any of these.

I don't know. I'm trying to figure out a way to make MT-15 for the T-55A and 260 more doable, without it being "super lame and ez". Maybe just ... I dunno - get 5/7k damage dealt ? And as secondary win and survive ? Or get 7/10k combined ? And again as secondary - win and survive ?

Theres more TDs on the field than ever. But many at tier 10 have stupid frontal armor so I havent started try harding yet (HEAT spam).

 

3500 and more importantly no honours required. Should be more doable than ever.

That would make it less luck based which is good. At the moment it's hard to actually get enough TDS in the match to farm the damage.

Previously MT-15 for t55a primary was kill 2 tank destroyers 1 tier higher than you. I was stuck on this for months. Either I was top tier or there wasn't enough TDs on the enemy team. Pure rng even before the battle had started !

 

So on paper this mission should be easier IF you own a bat chat or a t50. Where it seems unfair is there really is no chance of completing this mission at lower tiers. This mission eligable at tier 6, good luck with that.

I got my mission in the Leopard PTA by accident. I was farming a red Jpzn E100 platoon on the enemy team. 

 

Maybe you should platoon with 2 TD's? If youre platoons picks TD's the enemy team will have atleast 2 of them as well ( probably even more).

GB is cancer and it's actually not easy to get monster damage there. The damage is more evenly split in those games.

This.

 

Some of us also did this mission ages ago when it was 4k damage to TDs and they have already made it easier by reducing the amount needed AND you have grand battles now as well AND you can platoon with TDs who generally get matched against other TDs.

 

Not to mention you can skip the mission with orders as well.

 

Not everyone is supposed to get an Obj. 260 or T-55A

Given that I completed the 2k damage to TD mission right before the last patch in the tier 9 T-54, I´d say doing 2,5k to TDs is acceptable for a tier 10 medium, especially if you consider grand battles. 3,5k seems quite excessive, though, and like something that is way too much luck dependent. Nobody´s saying these missions should be easy, but it would be nice if all you needed was a little luck at best, not all of the luck.

3500 seems about right imo. I've struggled with the mission for ages when it ws 4k, getting 3,8-3,9 rarely but atleast quite a few times in total. so 3,5k seems perfectly doable but hard.

 

And if you don't have a tier 10 yet it isn't really surprising that you srugle a bit more seeing as the reward is a tier 10 tank.

4k on TDs was one of my worst missions... MM was brutal for a long period of time... there just wasnt enough TDs in game.

 

remember yoloing with under100hp on this  263, to get one more shoot.it was 14-8 or something, and all our tanks were pushing to that 263....
he missed me, and i get really great roll, 440ish if i remember...

if  that was under 4k game, i might sell that batcat, again.

To be honest I'm sad about orders. Yeah it allowed me to get the obj260 but I'd have gotten it soon anyway given I only needed to do HT14.4 15.4 and MT 15.4 Now it doesn't feel like an achievement. Especially since getting t55a missions with honors is easy.
