Damn, I missed Day 1 on the challenge, coz I was still in Luxembourg visiting my sister. Best I'll be able to do is 49/50, which stinks a bit. Not gonna get the camo, but whatever. Ain't spending a dime on WG products after the "improved MM" patch.

Not a whole lot really. If you select the in-game Kursk Missions icon, which tells you the daily mission requirement options, you will see a not too conspicuous progress bar at the bottom where the various stage rewards are on display along with your progress.

 

Basically you get everything including the tank by completing 30 missions or 30 days of your choice allowing you to miss 20 days almost 3 weeks of incomplete missions. The is a really nice bonus for completing 40 days worth of missions in the way of a 7 day premium account which, if you have the time to use that 7 day account, is really nice, otherwise 30 is the target.

 

You really get nothing much extra for completing the entire 50 days worth of missions, just something small like a few PRs or something which is actually pretty decent and sensible from WG for a change since they factored that it's summer time, ppl have holidays and in general ppl are going to miss a few days or weeks here and there.

 

Oh, happened to have this screenshot on imgur from a few days ago. So you can see on the bottom of screen the rewards are broken into 7 increments on a progress bar. The tank is the 5th, a 7 premium days is 6th and really nothing at all for the 7th so don't worry, a casual approach will bag you the tank if that's what you're thinking about, along with 3 pieces of equipment before and other goodies before then, optics, rammer and strangely enough a GLD which to me suggests WG devs intend this T-34 to be played a certain way.

Frankly in my view having to perform missions _every_single_bl**dy_day_, for 50 days in a row is tantamount to modern day slavery. Even if the missions are relatively easy, still takes 2-4 battles to do a day, say 20 minutes for average joe to complete? 20 minutes of your life _every_single_day_ for 50 days? You must really,really,really love this game to do this

 

Even for the tank, to do daily missions 30 times, almost every day of the working week. I can understand having difficult missions that take time or skill, and putting some time to gain some reward - when you can or feel like. But having to perform every day for such a long period is way beyond reasonable IMHO.

 

WG would have attracted more players if they were to create a fun historical mode for Kursk vehicles only or some variation of it, even if there were no rewards or premium tank at the end. But no, all they can come up with is grind, grind, grind on the same stuff is available in the game anyway.

 

You have to be seriously addicted to this game to actually want to finish this, particularly the 50 days. Just realise the reason WG have designed it like this is for you to give up and buy the package in the store. Seems to have worked well with the Progetto event.

At least thousands of people (likely tens of thousands) play one or two hours a day anyway.

 

I have 20k games played. Even you have 13k games. Average three games a day for 50 days is 150 games - measly 1 percent of your played games. Just play as you usually do, doesn't even have to be every day, as you only need 30/50 days to get the tank.

Your general well being feels better if you miss a day.

lol yeah - play 40/50 days and get burnt out, then your 7 days of prem can tick down when you can't abide WoT so don't even play :teethhappy:

 

looking at my calendar i should be able to squeeze another 23 days in by the 23rd August (20th if i play every day i'm available).

For players who grind, pursue other missions, play with clans in strongholds/advances, what you're saying is a non-issue. I've easily fulfilled Kursk event missions while actually doing something else in the game and not thinking about Kursk. For the time being the missions are very easy and I've taken the northern route each day.

The event is from July 5th to August 23rd, you have 2 extra days.

Fairly sure it ends on the morning of 23rd after the reset, so nothing on that day.

Job keeps me away from home a couple of nights a week. Two week holiday with no pc coming up (wife says she will shoot me if I even LOOK at a pc. Women are fine but no pc....).

I am a bit shafted on this one I guess but I may make the 30 required for the tank. Ho hum.
