Lowe is good after about a billion buffs, i dont own it so i cant comment. the VK tier 7 prem, eh.....not sure... dont have it but i just dont like how german tanks are so huge yet so paper (unless its tier 10) and without guns good enough for the horrible size.

Correct me if I'm wrong but an AT15A is a British TD and the VK 30.01P is German. So when I took out a VK30.01 with my AT15A in a battle a few of minutes, why ago did I not get credited for it in the overlord mission? Absolute fecking boll0cks.

Yep there heroic deeds are well marked. Remember this is a bunch of Russians running this show, they don't give a crap about what went on in the west.

I checked my progress last night.  As promised, I haven't been "trying" to do this, so I'd just see how I was going ...

 

Kill German tanks in French (1/10), USA (1/10), UK (1/10).

Kill allied tanks in German (0/10 x3)

 

What a waste of time.

Agree, the problem with this (type of) mission, is the lack of targets/opportunity, which gets worst every-time a new nation is introduced.  playing allied tanks, your getting maybe 1-2 German tanks per battle (if your lucky), and getting (killing) them is difficult, purely down to numbers.

I ended up playing a handful of battles last night. Think I got about 6 kills of which none were counted despite being well within the top 5 by XP.....meh.

Nothing about XP/top 5, you need to kill enemy tanks from  specific counties, US/FR/UK kills DE, DE kills US/FR/UK

Did anyone win anything from this ?

 

People who were grinding a German, French, UK, USA tank(s) must have won something .... surely ?

 

I think I got 6 wins in total (2 wins for 2 nations and 1 for the other 2), but I can't be sure as the mission ended without me even noticing.

 

WG must have the ability to look at what was awarded.  I wonder if they are surprised by how abysmal this was ?

Max possible completions was Germany (3), FR/UK/US (1 each) = 6 in total. I manged to do it with around an hour to spare, playing across all tiers from 2 to X. Yes, in some cases it meant I killed a tier 1 tank, and at the other end of the scale I got the kill shot on a Maus towards one of the country's mission. As noted above, the biggest problem was having suitable enemy tanks, and then making sure that not only did you kill them, but you stayed in the top ten. While that sounds easy, I found that if there was only one suitable target in the battle, and I put my effort into chasing it down, I'd most likely not get in the top 10 because I wasn't helping my team with winning. However, on games where I had up to 7 suitable targets, I could play more sensibly and add 1-2 suitable kills to my completion.
