Yes mate, for a few of them.  For some missions a stun is required and I think you can only use arty for that and not HE on tanks.  Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

No.

 

Go straight to SPG15 and complete it using the four orders you got from completing the others with honours.

There is one mission for the Excalibur which requires arty for the primary, and one I believe scrap that there's three for the Chimera.  You can use orders for these instead so nobody is forcing you to play arty there.

 

You can get the StuG without ever playing arty if you complete the other four sets with honours and use your orders, so nobody is forcing you to play arty there.

 

Having said that the StuG arty missions are so simple and the rewards so good that you may as well do them.

Well the missions are all pretty easy.  Just do them to get the orders back.

 

You have M41, use it.

Nothing wrong with playing arty, and you might learn something.

 

Or you can just carry on stat padding in tier IV if it makes you feel good.

Well it will only take you a couple of battles.  

 

Which missions did you use them on?

 

SPG1 is basically shoot 3 times and gets you 75k credits.

SPG2 maybe 8 or 10 shots in the M41 and steal one kill, another 75k credits.

SPG3 could be done in one shot, but needs a win for secondary, another 75k.

SPG4 maybe half a dozen shots, again needs a win for another 75k.

 

Do those four and the M41 has more than paid for it's self.

​Complete the missions with honors you used them on to get them back. So depending on what missions you used the orders on. You play them again, do the main and secondaries and get them back so you can use them on SPG-15. Thus no need to play arty. 

 

Before the old system was that you needed to play all classes without honors to get the tank. If you did it with secondaries you got 15 points, with just the main you got 10 points towards the tank. So when you did 4 out of the 5 classes with honors, you got the tank. As you needed 50 points to get it, but with 15 points pr mission you got it faster.

 

But later that option was removed and now you need to get all the parts for the tank instead from all classes. And they also added orders. So now you can still do all the 15 missions on 4 of them with honors, and use 4 orders on SPG-15 to get that done, and get the tank. If you did not do the other 4 with honors, like before you need to play SPG's to get to 15 and do that mission to get it. So inaway it's the same as before. 

 

But... on the stug the arty missions are not that tricky. And they do reward some stuff, inc a lot of sliver. So it's not 100% waste to try your luck on it.

Yes you have to play arty which is another dumb decision by WG, both sets of personal missions have increased the number of arty in game, despite WG themselves confirming how bad for gameplay it is.

Well, arty is easymode for many missions - something like "do twice your hitpoints in damage" is easily done with one or two hits with arty.

 

Then again, for the second mission block it feels to me like they promote collecting all lines from all nations - luckily I got them all at least at tier 8 :)

No you don't.

 

I already explained that.

 

OP does because he locked 2 orders to arty missions.  But he only has to do those 2.

No, you don't, you can skip straight to SPG-15 without playing arty at all. The issue is that the OP assigned orders to earlier missions, rather than assigning them immediately to SPG-15. So, yes, HE does have to play arty, but user error is hardly WG's fault.

I don't quit understand that - you have honours in 15 missions for 3 classes...with LT-15 completed with honours you'd have the STUG IV without playing arty.

Nope.

 

You can use orders to skip the few arty missions.

Yeh you do because orders are needed for much harder missions later on, not to be wasted on easy but annoying arty requirements.

 

I just did them last night, the UK/US line whatever it is called has 3 main missions all arty and they are all annoying, stun two vehicles with one shot, stupid mission where you are not helping the team but looking for specific enemies who group up so hold your shot. The other being have vehicles you stunned get killed be team mates, which again encourages you to shoot at low HP tank about to die anyway not actual dangerous threats.

 

To waste orders, a valuable resource on them is IMO not a viable option, just because technically you can do it does not mean in reality there is a requirement to do arty missions.

 

They should have just never put the stun requirement in there for any of them, you can do other missions with arty, so why make it a requirement to do certain missions with arty.

As per OP's response above, he is talking about the STUG IV mission. You don't need to play arty to get the STUG, or any of the 4 tanks in that mission set. Of course it makes it easier if you do but then that's your choice.

 

OP messed up and now needs to play  arty for the 2 missions that they used initial missions for, not WG's fault.
