I'm at Medium mission 15 of the STUG campaign, and I have to kill 2 TD's in a single match. It's the last mission I need to complete my female crew.

 

I know missions should not be expected to be accomplished on your first try, but I'm now at my gazzillionth. The problem is opportunities are just so slim, with hardly any TD's showing up to begin with. When they do, I either can't penetrate them because I'm bottom tier, or my team is made out of Teletubbies resulting in a loss before I have even spotted one. Sometimes I get lucky, and manage to get the drop on some TD's, but then the second one inevitably survives with 2HP and gets KS'ed.

 

This is very frustrating. It has gotten to the point that my overall playing starts to falter, because killing TD's is all really care about. I WILL sacrifice a matchwin for a shot at a TD.

 

Does anyone have any tips for this mission, or knows a good farming med. I should rebuy?

try at lower tiers,

you dont need full female crew for sos to work

play as normal and if it happens then be happy, dont play for mission

you can use 4 tokens to finish the mission

There is little to no reason to spoil your fun by obsessing with an RNG based mission.

I would just ignore the mission and play the game. It will happen :)

Platoon with two TDs, that way you are guaranteed 2 TDs of the same tier on the other team due to the stupid mirror matchmaking.

The thing is I bought a premium tank a long time ago, for fun and silver farming (not crew training), and I never got around to fitting a crew in it. I finally got four female crew members for it, so it feels like cheating to go and recruit a male crew member for the final position.

 

What is the lowest tier you can play at to complete the mission? I might buy rebuy the Pnz. III/IV tomorrow when it's -50%. That thing is nimble and has a good gun, so it's a good TD hunter. If possible I'll rebuy a Tier IV or Tier III as well, but I don't know whether they qualify. My Tier III premium doesn't in any case.

Don't play for missions. You will have the mission done before you know it. The tank isn't worth going full retard.

StuG missions are minimum tier IV. T28 HTC is tier V and the rest are tier VI+.

 

It is frustrating because you know the moment you play something other than a medium, the next enemy team will be half-full of TDs but unless you can do what Homer suggests and force the match-maker to give you TDs by platooning (and then hoping to be in a position to wreck those enemy TDs at the right time), it really is a case of waiting for the right battle to arrive. Focus on enjoying your medium grind and who knows, you might complete the mission before you reach tier X. ;)

Are you playing the same game as me?  High tiers at least are FULL of bloody TDs! What tiers are you currently playing?

I'm not actually grinding any medium lines at the moment, except the Chi-To and after that Chi-Ri, which isn't really a grind one can 'enjoy' :sceptic:

 

For the mission, I'm most;y playing my keepers, like the Firefly and the T-34-85.

This.

Also low tiers advice may be relevent. Would look for fast med personally.

Just wait till you have to do 3500 damage to TDs in a single game.

(Oh, and also deal damage to 8 different vehicles overall if you want honors)

Yeah, I'll try the Pnz/ III/IV tomorrow.

 

Was thinking about a Tier IV too, but Tier IV meds tend to be sluggish pseudo-heavies.

Try it in a fast med like a Cromwell or something similar 

 

I did it on my 1st attempt :)

Well it used to be 3 TD kills! Seriously, T4 Matilda or PzIV with derp should be able to pull this off. For the record, I made the 3 kills in VK30 thingy (the T6 Panther prototype). Survivability, firepower or mobility, all are workable strategies. Just wait for the right MM on the right map and execute.

Did you actually train them for the premium tank?

Yeah, well at least, I recruited them for it. Of course I didn't recruit and pre-train them in another tank before slapping them in the premium.

Pro tip is to train them for a regular tank of the same country and class so you can play them both in the premium tank and a standard tank.

Very much this. I ended up pulling my hair out trying to get the last mission for the StuGIV (it was LT15). I ended up just playing the game as normal, and ended up accidentally achieving it. It just takes longer this way, but it saves your nerves considerably.

That I can always do, as I haven't yet explored the respective country's heavy line at all yet. For now, it's just the premium. I know it's a stupid use of female crew, but I've got a plan:

 

After years of WoT I realised that I find Tiers V-VII the most fun to play at, and the most economical without a premium account. I also like German tanks in their historical configuration, love the short 88 at Tier VI, and am a bit of a weeb. So I got the Heavy Tank No. VI, stuffed it with female crew, and then I might proceed and install the Girls und Panzer voice mod.

Would it not have been better to get the Tiger 131 so you can use the female crew with the german heavys instead then?
