Trying to get heavy tank mission 15 tempered steel completed for the t55. Need to combine damage and blocking to amount to 12k. I am driving the Maus and just can't get it done, been trying for ages now and my maus wn8 has gone from 58% to 47% just trying to get this crappy mission done. Its all because of gold ammo, everyone in tier 10 games fires gold now and armor is valueless even in a maus. I think the problem is that since wargaming started to give out lots of credits from missions, frontline and boosters nobody seems to care about the cost of gold. It really is making a mess out of tier 10 games and I think wg should make gold at least 4-5 times the price. Please insert your sarcastic hate filled comments below thx.

WN8 =/= WR.

Thus, I highly doubt you have 47% wn8.

 

If you angle turret correct, you can bounce 330 pen and 340 pen shells a majority of the times.

Well i am trying same on Caernavon without gold rounds, with newer patches it becomes harder to get close. And also many open maps were remooved liek Highway, + square of available shootign became a circle, noone tries luck everyone just load 2nd as intented and reviewed by our false prophets. Noones plays game without knowing weak spot, no new players start to play.

Type 5 or a S.Q hull down comes to mind. You need a 3-5-7 battle with the correct map and you need to bait a lot of shots by pretending to be...a clown let's say. One more thing, choose who is gonna shoot you, don't peek against someone who's probably going to pen you. Good luck! :)

Because I want obj 260, im getting really annoyed now with gold spammers, cant even drive in t100lt anymore without every tank firing gold apcr 350 pen at it, its beyond a joke and its destroying the game because armour means nothing now and that's the whole point of driving a tank

Man, I have a Maus and it took me 6 weeks to get the T28HTC mission 15 done (6,000 damage caused, blocked and received), and in the end it wasn't the Maus that done it but the IS3

The HT missions are the easiest of the lot for me. Only the cap & ram ones give me trouble as it needs some luck on your side.

 

It should be quite doable in your Maus tbh, 12K combined isn't that much, as it counts damage done, damage received & damage blocked. So a game where you dish out 5K damage, receive 2K damage & block 5K should do the trick. Not an everyday game occurrence, but not that out the ordinary either in a Maus.

First things first, best bet to get it would be in a full TX battle, most HP around & best guns to block, a 10-5 game also works if it has plenty of T9 heavies, to get enough blocking damage & dealing damage out.

3-5-7 tends to lack the damage done & blocked, unless the game deals you two bad teams & a city map like Himmelsdorf, allowing you to farm the enemy team, while they keep bouncing you & your team not stealing too much (blocked) damage.

If you don't require to finish ti with honours, activate Grand Battles to have a much higher chance to finish the mission.

 

The Maus' armor is pretty gold resistant, but you got to angle it & keep the enemy guns in mind. Do that and you can wreck the enemy good as they try to maul you. Do remember the Maus is not a solo-tank, make sure you got some folks who can cover you, else play careful, to avoid getting flanked.

But you got to make sure you're in the front, attracting attention & block their shots (prem & standard) & respond in kind.

And when you do, you'll finish the mission within a reasonable time, as it still needs a good match to finish it & those aren't everyday matches. For secodnary, you got to win & earn that High caliber medal too (gets awarded at destroying 20%+ of the enemy team HP yourself)

You make it sound like your T100LT bounces anything non gold. It's like hearing a Borsig whine about APRC hitting it.

It's also damage taken. Not just done and blocked. So if you die... you're already 1/4 of the way. Just dish out the damage, and focus on the one that pens you, and ignore the one that don't. Only way to do it. And even gold ammo can bounce on your tank... If they HEAT spam the front of your turret, just give them side angles and don't poke at them until they reload. No point giving them what they want first is it? I did HT-15 for the T-55A in the VK B when I did grind that. Got plenty of gold that came my way. But just find the weak link on their team on your lane and 100% ignore it. He is the one that will... give you them bounces.

Currently struggling with final mission for td's and mediums for T-55A but the HT missions are relatively easy Maus on Abbey taking the river road and farming damage i got more then the requirements for the obj.260 final mission.

But this was before 1.0 so even if i could find my replay i doubt i could have shared it.

If only OP used the very same gold to complete his mission by dealing dmg instead of whining...

Why not try something with high damage output (autoloader) or something with better mobility (sconq, pz 7).

Drive 4502B and win. That's what I did it with. 

Another great option is T29 on the right map. Just get where you can sit hull down and then do nothing. 

This might sound crazy but west spawn on Malinovka encounter works. I've had scout and patrol duty in T34 but using that ridge in the centre; anything else with a good turret can so the same.

Just have in mind ,that for missions like the above, the theoratically best vehicle that fits (Maus or Type 5 heavy) is not the best suited for it.

Enemies either shoot gold at you and pen, or just ignore you and shoot someone else.
