I'm stuck on SPG-15 for the T55A.

 

2500 Stun damage (done this once)

Top for XP (I was 3rd in game above)

Secondary: Win and do 3K damage.

 

I have the GWE-100 (T10), two tier 8s (SU-14-2, Lorr 155-51), I've researched the M40/M43 and I have the Crusader 5.5 (T7).

 

When the map/teams are right I try to splash rather than directly hit the targets.  I target my targets with T ... But I rarely get close to the 2500 stun required.

 

So what should I do ?

 

1) Pay 4 Orders to skip the mission, get the tank and get onto the missions for the Obj-260

2) Grind a different arty ?  Which one ?

3) Try platooning with clan mates.  Is this considered rigging ?

4) just keep plugging away with the GWE-100 ?

 

Recommendations ?  Option 1 is very tempting but it might prevent me from ever getting the Obj-260.

Pick the tier 8s. They can do the damage requirements, and can quite easily get on the first place regarding xp.

T10 arty is pretty bad for any XP requirements.  'Try' to be bottom tier in +2 matchup.  I think I did this one in a GWP in a T9 game.

Why would you aim for splash if you need 3k damage? Just try to keep hitting them non-stop and pray to RNGesus that you get 2500 stun damage along the way. You just need a great prolonged game.

And you get the recommendations back if you complete the mission at any other time. That way you can at least continue with the 260 missions.

5) Sell the arties. Just complete the other #15 missions with honours and you're done.

The tier 9 French is good for that mission and good in general (high tate of fire, turreted etc.)

3) Try platooning with clan mates.  Is this considered rigging ?

 

Since when is platooning considered rigging?

Platooning for missions isn't rigging, in fact some mission descriptions state the mission mechanics allow for cumulative contributions from your platoon mates.

For stun missions you're better off with lower tiers that can fire faster. More shots out is more chances to stun so the tier 8 will do better than the tier 10. It also helps to try and drop your shells between tanks where possible to get multiple stuns. Lastly remember not to hit tanks that are already stunned as you won't get the credit for stun time until the first arty stun has expired.

As others have said - T10 arty isn't really suited to these missions - in part due to the inherently selfish way in which high tier games are played.

Personally, I did all 15 over the course of one week in M53/M55 so would heartily recommend the US line - VII - to IX being equally adept.

This was mine http://wotreplays.eu...ryrisky-m53_m55

 

To get the XP requirement you need some damage and kills as well as the assist.   It is ridiculous but often this is to do with hitting targets that have just blinked off to unspotted so you don't share the XP.   However you haev to take that as it comes rather than actively play for those shots or you will just lose a lot.

Dunno what's best but did it at Karelia assault (attacking side) with GWP Tiggy at T10 game. Had quite few close ones before that and always felt that SPG15/3 was one of easier 15/3's to do (used orders on HT and TD, those were impossibru).

Once i got 5.3k stun dmg with my M53/M55. Half of the enemy team wanted to go to hill on mines in 1 big fat group (all heavies). Stunned them twice and my team did the rest of the job. But i couldnt do the 3k damage because my team was too good and they killed everyone before i had the oppurtunity...

I'm at the same but a tank higher and it's really difficult to make. The closest i got several times was with BC58 where i fulfilled the stun damage but placed second in both teams by xp. I found it to be best because of the drum that let's me choose targets before allies drain their HP pool. Probably a lower tier arty would be better for xp purposes but till now i found them pretty useless for top missions and specifically for this mission regarding assistance damage. The issue i seem to get is probably a MM thing. Whenever i can get big assistance it happens that only one or two allies are the ones that do the damage and not somewhat spread across multiple allies and thus they get top xp places before me.

Did mine with honours in T10 GW arty(it might be the T9 one).Also did it with obj261 and lost honours for 80 dmg.Sooner or later you will have this good game.At least for me it didnt take long so i could stop playing arty (until obj260 missions :trollface:).
