Well look on the bright side, they did ensure to include arty in those missions, that will definitely calm the nerves of all involved. 

 

Looking forward to opening this thread later today, it's gonna be gud.

And the times in the past when we had missions that gave x2 battle xp for each victory, was not artillery included in those missions aswell? Really man, stop manufacturing non-existant problems. I don't like artillery either, but insisting on keeping the class in the game, and then disable it from playing effectively on some maps or making use of missions makes no sense and is contradictory.

Very nice special. I plan to grind through STA-1 and Type61 this weekend (as far as I get) and this special will be very helpfull.

Only "bad" part is that values you must do are in absolute numbers so they will of course be way easier in higher tiers than in lower ones.

Maybe would be better if it was related to vehicle HP (like 3x of your HP) so that they are achievable by lower tiers also

 

Major Payne

Medium Tanks: 4,500 damage (by yourself + by immobilising) in one battle

 

There is big difference in trying to do this in Tier5 MT compared to Tier9 MT (excluding Tier10 as they don't need XP except for crew training or accumulating FreeXP to convert with gold).

But as I said - very nice special as I have plan to grind through Japan T8 and T9 mediums.

Combining with 50% from Haloween event it should make grind much faster I hope.

50% Halloween (which stacks with Premium, so 75%)
50% Premium
150% from this mission (not sure if this and the next stack tho)
15% Twitch event
100% Booster

That's a +340%, so total of 440% every battle where you meet the requirements for Major Payne! 

 

LT/HT seem very easy to accomplish, MT a bit harder. SPG I wouldnt even try even if i liked playing clicker. 3k stun dmg is like a unicorn game.

Just a joke Falcon, nobody (thus far :D) including me seriously for 1 second would suggest you for example shouldn't be able to finish up your GC Conq or GWE100 grind using the great bonus missions on offer.

 

Chill.

Am I reading this right, still on first cup of coffee so not fully awake yet...

So a T4 TD has to do 2k damage? Is this possible?

 

Well fully awake now so it looks as though it's an arty weekend seeing as my SU85B isn't going to get the required damage:)

Good luck with Tier 4-5, if you believe in magic. Why not tier 1-3?

This seems like a [edited]mission. No seriously how many people can actually do more than 2.5k dmg in heavy tanks in premium tanks? maybe if you were playing a tier 10, but that's no longer premium.

 

At tier 8 you need a great game to do 3k dmg, you need a total potato team and a great game for you to do more than 4k dmg.

 

Wargaming needs better datamining equipment cause these values, not even vbaddict predicts that this will be done by many players. Maybe by unicorns but that's discrimination against the rest of the community.

Methinks WG don't know how their own bonuses work.

 

+50% +50% +50% = +150% not 2.5x

Where does it say anything about premium tanks?  And it's combined damage+blocked.  And it's a challenge, it's not expected that every noob will get it every battle.

The first difficulty "private Ryan" is already not possible for tier 4...maybe 5...

The idea of these mission could be good but the final work is way not finished yet...

Need a lot of tuning to make it profitable for all "tier".
