Fact is that if you're playing a german tank all guns will immediately point at you once spotted.

 

Minus the tanks from USSR, CZ, ITA, SWE, CHI, other GER....

WG spin us some crap about Pref MM tanks causing all the trouble for the Match Maker.

 

The reality is that it's missions like this that add a load of complexity.

 

Towards the end of this mission (7th/8th) (perhaps sooner) you will start to notice something ...

 

Play a german tank and you will be against lots of german tanks mixed with Russian, Jap, Chinese, Czech, Swedish, Italian ... but very few Brit/US/French (3 or less).

Play a Brit/US/French tank and you will be against lots of Brit/US/French tanks mixed with Russian, Jap, Chinese, Czech, Swedish, Italian ... but very few German (3 or less).

 

If the MM was on our side there would be games of exclusively Brit/US/French/German and other games of exclusively Russian, Jap, Chinese, Czech, Swedish, Italian.

But it isn't.  It want's this mission to be a grind.  It doesn't want you getting those 10 kills in 5-10 games.  It want's you to take 20-30 games.

 

I will be boycotting this mission and just playing the tanks I'm interested in.  WG should scrap these missions and remove their complexity from the match maker.

3 times per Account ... not per day.  3 times in total over the 5 days.

 

Most games there will only be 3 valid opponents and so you probably wont even see them.  1/3rd (ish) of the times you do manage to kill one, you wont be top 10.

 

I expect much frustration from those that try to do these missions.

So, 3 nations need to kill 10 german tanks to get 15 consumables, while german drivers need to kill 30 allied tanks for 15 consumables...

Thus made, everybody will drive the allied cause they reap 3x more, and there will be not enough germans to shoot at, so the missions will become tiresome. Cause I for sure won't be driving german these days and be focused all the time by allied arty (which will inevitably happen)...

best thing to do: drive soviet or chinese and have fun, noone will focus on you and you can choose your targets :)

 

They did call it "Outnumbered and Outgunned" for a reason, though.

@WG....killing a T28 HTC does not register towards the mission progress when driving the Skorp G.

WHEN I PLAY FRENCH OR AMERICAN (NOT PLAYED BRITISH YET) ABOUT TWO OR THREE OF THE ENEMY TANKS ARE GERMAN. WHEN I PLAY GERMAN ABOUT HALF OF BOTH SIDES ARE GERMAN.

 

Sorry about the shouting but this is typical bloody wargaming bullsh*t.

3 nations need to kill 10+10+10 German tanks to get 15+15+15 consumables, while the Germans need to kill 30 tanks of any of the other 3 nations to get 15 consumables.

So, more or less fair, just that playing a German tank will give you much more targets, while the other 3 nations will fight for each crump (frag).

 

Fixed it, the changes is in bold.

Wonder if I roll out in my Panther/M10 Wolverine.. I mean, it was built for that specific reason - will my disguise be enough? Will I confuse them? :hiding:

Well it does seem a little unfair that in German tanks you have to kill 30 vehicles to get 3x5 chocolates, but for any of the other three countries you get 15 sets of supplies for killing just 10 German tanks. However, WG has inspired me to open my wallet with this one....I'm off down the supermarket to buy chocolates and Coke.

I guess this is the same mission as last year or the same as 2 years ago... and so on

BUT

NOW there are also Japanesse and Italian tanks in game

why not put them also into mission?

copy - paste WG?
