Firstly, just getting the 3.5 assistance is, mildly speaking, exceedingly hard. After all, the job of a pig is to shot things other can’t. But even when they are shooting what you stunned (or tracked) it doesn’t matter, because you target just used it’s med kit (or repair kit) meaning you got fraking nothing. And even when you’re able to get required assistance damage there’s no way you get the most experience. And that’s no wonder, you don’t do enough dmg anymore to have any kind chance of being top. And the stunning xp does not compensate. Look at this game: that’s a combined damage of over 7400; over 1k more than of the closest other player on my team (the Bat-Chat). And I’m still 5th on experience; I’m not even anywhere close to the top players xp. And I don’t mind him getting more xp. He has after all been brawling at the front the entire game while I have been eating popcorn and pushed a button every 37 second. What I do mind is that this mission is, effectively, impossible to complete. (If you just want to [edited]about “sky cancer” you can frak off. I just want to complete this fraking mission so I can go back to play light tanks so my team has 1 good scout. Well, or complete TD-15 for the T 55A with honours (WG spell it wrong…;) but as no-one seem to know how to scout so that doesn’t seem to be happening.)

That would be a viable option before. But with the new requirements for the Obj, it's gonna be way harder on those. As before you used a stock gun on a tier 9 to get stuns, now you need the damage to. And 4K damage is not something you do often in a tier 8 arty, tho ofc not impossible. But if you do 4K, there is not much stun assist to go around after that. So then hoping for a GB or a pure tier X game on a open map with HT's is what you need. The slower the game is the better.

Life of a clicker is hard. I advise to use orders to skip this mission. Save your soul.

I guess it's matter of taste, but TD-15 with honours... that's 6k damage + 7 kills? Should be kind of doable in GBs with the 103B - and you're less reliant on your team. Nebelburg is camping über alles after all. Find some random T10 players to toon with and play during peak times with your fingers crossed. Heck, platoon with a LT, GBs are fine for LT-15 etc. too.

I have met the requirements several times, already. It is very much possible. It's just highly unlikely because the stars need to align. (Also, given that I got the obj 260 ages ago, I obviously manage to do missions that literally took me months when I needed to do them.)

 

Just a few suggestions that may help you:

 

- Kill / damage tanks that aren't spotted. Counter arty is risky, but if you get it right, it is a good way to get a bit extra xp. Otherwise, wait for that TD to get unspotted. Then blast it.

- Get kills. Damage alone is rarely going to cut it.

- Don't shoot targets you think your team should be shooting at. Hit those tanks your team is already shooting at.

- Don't help your team too much. It's a bit cruel, but you really need a long game. So if somebody on the enemy team is doing a great job stalling your guys, don't target him unless you absolutely have to.

I’ve tried; it doesn’t work. Neither in tier 8 or 9.

I see you didn't grasp why I'd could do TD for the T 55A with honours...

You can't do TD15 because of bad scouts? Yes, that is kinda hard to grasp. Message me in-game someday, I can easily scout around to help you. I do 7-8k combined scout games almost every day.

Not impossible.

 

Took me exactly 15 tries

I've had a game in the m40 with 4.6k assist. It isn't impossible, but it's true that it's exceedingly hard. Mostly due to people not taking kindly to the crew deaths you cause which causes them to remove your stun as well. Funny how the HE crew damage BS makes it equally frustrating for both parties involved.

 

Just remember to sell your arties when you're done with the missions.

Was that before or after the recent mission changes? Because before, in a stock tier 9 SPG. It did indeed not take many tries. But now you need 4K damage on top of those 3500 stun assist.

It's pretty annoying

I did that with G.W. Tiger P in tier 10 battle. Came 1st only by a slightest margin. I was close multiple times with BC 155. That was before the requirement change in the latest patch though, did they make it harder?

 I think people forget that with the new patch req changed for this mission.

 

Before you needed 3.5 k assist and get top  exp, while for the secondary you just had to survive, now you have to do 4 k damage + the 3.5 k stun to get it with honors. Probably became one of the hardest missions for the obj now by far.

Did they change the mission requirements?

 

I remember doing all the arty missions with ease before the arty "nerf" witch included the not so nice stun feature. I then breezed through the new arty missions and did them all with honors quite easily. Did they make them harder now?

 

Good luck getting them done and going back to playing the other classes.

Damn. Good job WG making the missions harder so people play arty more than they want to.

It's the major reason for me to grind yet another arty line.

Word is that the m53/55 is the one to get so that the goal now
