So... u have to do 3k to leviathan, not a big deal. but no damage received during the battle? How it is supposed to happens? Minions shoot on sight, and there is no much room to hide entire battle i would say.

I thought it was like, regen urself to full life and then do 3k to leviathan avoiding the damage from him... but it is not... u have to avoid damage per entire battle. Seriously? hide during whole game? This is seriously 1 of the most useless idea

When I used to work, now retired, I was critised often for saying a particular task was difficult. I changed to saying challenging instead, kept my bosses happy.

I would say that this mission, while not impossible, is very very challenging:)

i'm not saying it is difficult, impossible or anything like that. I'm saying it is useless, pointless and completely stupid. To do this mission u have to just give a care about anything else then hiding and waiting then ur team do something, then shoot leviathan from 2km... Rly usefull for teamplay and mostly for the fun... nonsense imho

It is not challenging, i think is an utterly stupid concept of a mission.

 

Hos to complete.

 

1: Hide from all other tanks and let your team mates do the work.

2: Shoot at Leviathan with extreme care, from long range when he is looking away.

 

Get your 3k Leviathan damage.

 

Run away and hide.

 

Great mission.

I had 4 team mates doing this mission at once. Not an easy game.

The problem is stronk WG mission descriptions ingame. It in fact is "do 3k dmg to leviathan, receive no dmg from leviathan".

As said the problem is not that the mission is difficult, the problem is that the mission directly contradicts proper teamplay. HP are there to be used after all, why else would there be healing items? It´s just horrible design that is going to make you playing this mode a lot more frustrating, whether it is you whos trying this mission or one of your team mates.

WG has similarly stupid mission in stock, like the one where you have to get hit by 5 mines and survive.

nevermind, just had a game where i did 4k to leviathan, received 0 dmg from leviathan and didnt get the mission... so yeah, seems like it is as pure aids as you claim. Funny that in the original news about the event this mission indeed is "do 3k to lev, receive 0 from lev"

I don't get how WG can come up with these kind of retarded mission ideas.

 

Why not have a mission like.

 

'win by doing 0 damage to leviathan' it is about as bright.

Be selfish and hide here

 

 

Parasitize your team Sniping Levi for 3000 damage 400 m away, fast fast hide in safe place and alf.

 

If you got "report" "bot" messages you are doing it right

the no dmg thing is checked at game end - all you have to do is to gather a health globe just before the game ends to get back to 100% health if needed as it doesen´t check beeing not dmged through out the game just if you are damaged at game end.

 

its the same with the missions containing unhurt crew members where you can simply use a greater med pack at the end of the game to qualify.

 

edit: not enough coffey...

What a disgusting mission. Someone at WG has no clue about what proper team play should look like.

 

Kill Leviathan 10 times? Do 3000 dmg to Leviathan while receiving 0 dmg whole game? What on earth are they smoking? I am starting to have a feeling that the person who wrote these missions is one of those sub-50% winrate guys who camp A1 on Prokhorovka no matter what tank they are playing.

I can't believe people still haven't caught on.

They always put some of the end missions at the end of the challenge to be totally out of whack.

Also remember that unless you are in a platoon trying to do a specific mission or taking part in a ''tournament'' of any sort, you are in fact competing with 29 people, not 15. So a mission that basically might as well say ''Ignore your team, hide till they do the dirty work, and do 3.000 dmg to the end boss and do not take any damage at any given time'' does not really sound as absurd.

Completed wheel and deal at my first attempt on it in Stein. Delt 5k dmg to the Leviathan. Basically you gotta stay away from frankens and steins, let the team do the dirty work, and when the Leviathan comes never get close. I was hit once with a landmine and once from a secondary gun for 0 dmg, module destroyed, but it didn't affect the mission. I am fully aware that I earned myself some hate from my team members as they kept pinging me on minimap, but what can you do? The reward was 1 day premium, gun rammer, coca cola and a personal reserve. Not bad.

If you can heal up with medpacks it doesn't sound that absurd.

 

Still, it will ruin gameplay.

If you want to have an influence on the battle and be a competent player, that mission can not be done.

 

If you want to be a pussy sniper avoiding literally everything and not carrying your weight, then it can be done.

It's not just this mission, most of the week 2 missions are unbelievably bad design.

 

1 - ramming mission means you have to ram 300 damage in the same game, it does not accumulate in between games.

Obviously it does not say that outright, but you try to do that with the high pen of frankens.

It's not impossible, it's just a PITA to get that 1 game where you can ram for 300 damage with no problem.

 

2 - 3k damage to leviathan with no damage received back .... it does not say weather you need to have received 0 damage from leviathan (which has secondary guns ... and if those secondary guns matter) or you need to be at full HP at the end of the game.

Because if it's the latter, you can easily do it by farming health packs.

 

3 - destroy Leviathan with secondary .... i actually completed this last night, before the mission was in the game. So while you might need to spam games and killsteal, it's doable.

 

4 - pvp mode, destroy 3 with secondary gun .... after 1-2 points above, is this done in the same game or do they count in between games ?

Because f it's the former ..... holy cr*p !!!

And it's 2 missions, once done for 1 kill and then one for 3 kills which leads me to believe they don't accumulate in different games.

 

5 - be top on your team by damage caused, with leviathan destroyed. This basically translates into win and be top of your team on damage.

But the leviathan must be just destroyed or must you destroy it ?

 

Considering i'm not getting a tank, special crew, or other stuff in this event .... i'm not gonna tryhard for it.

I'll probably not complete it, because judging by the above conditions, i think you need to play an average of 100+ games, which totals 10hs by the 9th.

And if i pop combat boosters in the same period, and play my bc 12t/13 90 .... i can put 260k xp towards better crews or new tanks. If i'm not mistaken, the 13 105 is just over 260k xp as well. :)

Get your 3k Leviathan damage.

 

Run away and hide.

 

Sounds like a plan.

 

Even better, run away and pick up that health pack at the back of the map.

It's a fun mode, who cares about being competent.
