So it was a great special this weekend but for me, the cherry on the cake was completing SPG15 to win the T 55A.


I've been plugging away at this for months.  Playing arty from all nations at tier 7, 8 and 10 but to no avail.


I had started to notice a pattern ... never the only arty ... unless it was Himmelsdorf or Paris.


I came close a few weeks ago (it was only the second time I got over 2.5k stun) but I was beaten into 2nd place for XP by a 10k Personal Rating [KAZNA] player who did ~6k damage in his medium tank (*sigh*).


I played a few arty battles on Saturday but after I was counter batteried in 3 games in a row, I gave up.


But last night the planets lined up.  It was an open map (Prokhorovka), I was the only arty, there weren't any supa-dupa unicorns on my team (there were some high statters on the enemy team) and I tried to play smart by

  1. not going to the conventional/obvious arty spot,
  2. moving after every shot,
  3. anticipating where enemies would be spotted,
  4. the occasional blind shot,
  5. going for the clusters of enemies (I'm particularly pleased with the group I hit on the hill).


It wasn't a win, which is a shame, but I'm really, really pleased to finally have the T 55A in my garage and as I haven't used a single order yet, so the 12 I have should make the Object 260 a possibility.


All just in time for the next set of PMs to come along.


Here's the replay for anyone who's interested https://saltyjedi.wot-record.com/replay/106921/stinkystonky_completing_spg15_to_get_the_55a


I'd like to give a shout out to Salty Jedi's Personal Mission page.  The tips on here have certainly helped me on my journey and he will be updating it to provide details of the next set of PMs that are coming in the next release. https://www.saltyjedi.com/personalmissions

Nice one.


I completed it without honours before they changed the requirements and since I'm nowhere near on the other four classes and having every other arty mission available to me completed with hours I've had it selected to improve the result.  I keep getting close, I find the early hours of the morning to be easiest.  Often been 50 or so damage away, so frustrating.
