Always nice some extra obtainable XP! :)

 

Would love to see those 15k exp missions back though! ;)

Agreed on both points!

Agree on both, too.

 

1000 xp for 3 x in top 5 won't really mean dashing through the tier. It's more like a 20-25% personal reserve.

Not bad. However to last in Top 3 by experience a good crew is needed mostly.

 

On newly developed tanks usually the crew is inexperienced.

 

In Top 7 or 5 it is ok

So i receive that xp just for accepting the missions?? Really?:sceptic:

Oh, wait....I must play 3 games and finish in the top 3 by xp to get that 1500xp (similar things applies to the other missions)......:facepalm:

 

I think the people who are writing the articles on the site should play this game at least a few days a month.

Actually this should apply for every WG employee that has his job related to WoT, they are losing touch with the reality...

 

LATER EDIT:

To be clear, i think the missions are nice and thanks for them. The problem is that lately a lot af announcements are written in poor english or have misleading conditions.

It should say: just by completing the missions.....

I'm gonna go full Rainman here and state that

3x 500 + 3x 1000 + 3x 1500 XP = 9000 XP

and for four days (13., 14., 15. and 16.11)

4x 9000 XP = 36000 XP in total.

oh good tier 8 to 10 crapon tier 8's more why dont you? already gets punished enough by the Match maker now you add missions where everyone's going to be playing there tier X idiots why not just make the missions complete-able  in any tier from 4 upwards  i agree with laulaur you people need to actually play your own game

Can i ask an irrelevant question. 

 

Some times i get "crew is special bonus" 3x crew XP, but the event is next week. 

 

What mission is this, what conditions it needs?

Let`s do a bit of math, shall we?

 

1) Let`s assume that I am a COMPLETELY average player.

 

2) That means that I will be in the top 3 of my team by XP in about 20% of the matches, or every 5th match. That means it will take me 5 matches to do the prerequisite for 1 mission ONCE. Since I need to do it 3 times to get the bonus XP, that means I will need about 15 matches to get 1 of those missions done (for 1500 XP).

 

3) Since I would prefer to get all 3 done, it means I should do 3 times the number of matches, on average= 45 matches.

 

45 !@#$% matches to get a measly 4500 extra XP!

 

How is that a good deal, at all?

 

I would get way more by just activating a 50% or an 100% XP booster and playing for 2 hours (which is way less time than what it takes for 45 matches).

 

Cut the requirement down to top 10, at all tiers, and this would be a good special. Like it is, it is only ok (and barely even so) for lower tiers.

 

P.S. And yes, before someone mentions it, one can just do better and be in top 3 more often than I mentioned. But I`m talking about what this special means to the majority of the playerbase.

Its not actually a good deal, or a bad deal, since they dont ask anything in return. 

It's a completely free bonus, that requires nothing special than your usual gaming, the gaming you would have done anyway.

So, yes its nothing really great, but ohhh well, why not...

just stopped playing played maybe 10 battles sod this tier 8 unplayable and so is tier 7 one game where i wasn't bottom tier as soon as these missions come out the MM becomes even more of a joke mite have to be a 4 day brake from wot was the last time you did these retarded missions.

 

Why cant simply invent missions with no tier as soon as theirs mission that require tiers such as the 8-10 everyone's playing 9-10 and the few of us whod like to play our lower tier tanks get crapon more then usual i enjoy this game but not times like today the MM is so god aweful its like bashing my head against a wall when did this game become about work and not fun?

you want people to spend money? make the game fun listen to us stop shitting on us
