I completed my 1st alliance mission today but without honours.When I tried to go for my second mission it said that if I do so that all progress will be lost.I feel sorry for the guys thats new to the game as I couldnt do one battle in a tier 6 doing more than 3000 damage.So I came to the conclusion that WG didnt make these missions for beginners but for people with tier 8 to tier 10 tanks or their favourites Unicum players.Sorry new guys WG screwed us over again as usual as it always happens.

 

I've done 6 now (you get a medal after 5 :) ), 4 with honours. So, as an example to illustrate Homer's point above:

Mission completed without honours, but with secondary condition completed on only one occasion:

On clicking for the next mission you get the warning:

shot_171.jpg

After accepting the mission, the completed mission is retained (see below), but the non-completed 2ndary conditions ARE reset. So, if you go for improving result later, you'll be starting the secondary conditions again from scratch.

Note that when you are improving the result, you ONLY need to complete the secondary objectives, as you have already done the primary ones.

Are you serious with the 14th mission in Coalition ? Who will deal 8 Hits in first 3 mins when travel takes 1 minute ? I know those Coalition nations have mostly autoloaders but anyway the first clip may be easy but the second one have to be suicide... And this is only the first set of those missions...

I stopped playing a few months ago, except for frontlines and ranked (3/5/7 wrecked game for me).

I came back to try the 2nd campaign and because I had m48 unlocked.

After completing a few campaign missions I realise it is forcing me to "STUN" x times. wtf???

I have 1x tier 8 arty that I only have for team games. Now these idiots think I will grind 3 other nation's arties just to grind my way to a bag of crap"reward" tank (you have seen the reviews of these things, right?).

Sod it and sod this game. No more $$$ on wot til 3/5/7 is gone.

Now go work for WG. Why can't they explain it like you did?

Was really looking forward to this. What a stunning disappointment. Just a boring grind for most of them. And some of them close to impossible without t10 tanks. And to complete you will need T10 from almost all nations.

 

tl:dr

WG fail to live up to hype. Again.

I was wrong about the new personal missions and arty only one national group the Alliance USA UK Poland has any primary Stun missions.

The breakdown is.

Union 1 secondary stun mission

Bloc 2 secondary stun missions

Alliance 2 Primary and 2 secondary stun missions

Coalition 1 secondary stun mission

 

I am assuming there is no problem missing out secondary missions since you likely get the tank and crew members anyway.

So grab an American or British SPG and do those 2 SPG primary missions 1 Stun 20 tanks, 2 Stun 2 tanks 7 times and you are done with arty.

There are some missions where you have to destroy modules but those could be done with other tanks.

You'll need Soviet as well when you get to the second mission set.

While 2nd front could be a bit challenging to the newer players due to lack of researched vehicles/resources to by them. For the long-time players it seems to be exactly right.  You have an incentive to revisit all those forgotten tonks :D.

I kinda like the idea of it.

Don't always think tier 9-10. Lower tiers are faster and have fast reload times.

Who cares, fix the mm, ffs.

its been broken for so long now, why arent you fixing it?

So many games start with a massive skill imbalance, why arent you taking account of one of the skill metrics? wr or wn8, not perfect but a start, surely. When one team has a combined wn8 that is 30 to 50% higher than the other, a regular situation, the outcome is assured from the start. No point playing a game like that. Only about 1 in 10 games has a reasonable balance, most have 35% to 40% chance to win or 60% to 65%. Where is the fun in that for either team?

I am having more fun and success doing these missions than the first set, There once I got to the T55a and the last few missions it was just game after game with zero progress.

Even lower ones if the game messed with you there was no chance.

I am also dividing each mission into 2 sections do the first part with one tank then all the secondaries that say do 3k damage jump into a tier 10 and blast away

Surprisingly doing 8k damage to light tanks is causing problems tonight high tiers often no light tanks and low tiers not many hit points.

Yeah I've noticed that too - some of the secondary missions are easy if you can do them separately.

And there are some more missions which could be done easier with SPG.

Like do damage not less than x2 Your vehicle XP which could be done very very easy with obj. 261. ;)

Thank you for the wonderful SPG assignments.Almost every game 3 SPG's is so much fun.


Actually I was looking forward to the 2nd front but I am so annoyed by this focus-fire that I am going to take a longer break.

Please WG: only SPG per game!

So what exactly does "Finish the battle as the top player on your team by experience earned within 10 battles" mean? 10 battles top xp?

Try finding a bad unpopular tank for those missions.

Now if they would do the 2nd front mission requirment setup for the 1st it would be nice I am stuck trying to do honours because trying to do some of the primary and secondaries together are crazy!

So... Do primary and secondary separately if You do care about that that all missions would be done with honors.

But, in mine opinion, there is no sense to try to do all missions with honors.

There is some reason to try to do 15th missions with honors because of blanks only.

Think the new missions still need to be reworked, the ones that have a 3 minute limit for the damage..takes a minute or longer

to get into position with the speed of the tank, then if your lucky u might get 3 or 4 shots off in the 3 minute time limit considering what your reload speed is at, hate to have to use arty to try to do the missions..
