Today I learned blocking (actually getting the shield for blocking full damage) HE shells doesn't count as actual damage blocking, nor does it count to get partial blocks like this: https://prnt.sc/n5hu2w

 

So I could use some help to do this mission from the heavy line where I have to block 3x my tank's HP, because I'm getting nowhere. The only game I managed to get close enough was a tier 10 game on my VK 100.01P and got shot from everywhere, I never had a chance to deal damage though so the 2k damage requirement wasn't met, and I didn't get the block one either.

 

I get pounded by arty more often than not, last game I was top tier with 3 arty and they kept pelting me (fortunately I had super-heavy spall lines and blocked all the damage) and couldn't move the whole game because my tracks were perma-broken.

 

So any tips and tricks you might have to make this work are appreciated, I'm playing Obj 705 and T29 now to see what I can do.

The preceeding mission (block 2x times for the T28 HTC) I had tried it a lot in a Maus and came close a bunch of times but in the end I got it on a random game in the IS3. I hate to say it but the Defender might be the way (or failing that, your VK 100.01P)

Crysler K, wait to be toptier and take the light/medium route, park with lower plate covered in plain sight with arty cover and go afk.

O-I or O-Ni as a top tier, more likely to happen during the weekend. Hulldown monsters or German superheavies don't really work for the mission since people will either ignore you or switch to HE. You need to find that perfect balance between people thinking they can pen you and you bouncing most of the shots, not all so they get their hopes up and keep firing.

Hate to say it, but it's all luck. You might get it tomorrow in your first game, or you can play for 2 months straight and you won't get it. You just have to milk the right situation as much as you can. Such as bottom tier shooting you over and over again without penning and without switching to HE ammo. You cannot kill him obviously. In general, you have to give the enemy false sense of safety, so he can spam your armor. Of course it works only on "less than avarage players". Look away, shoot in the air, whatever works.

 

I tried to do it with pure brute armor, but it doesn't work consistently. I mean Maus and Japanese heavies. Sometimes you can't bounce even your own HP. On tier X everyone spams gold or HE + arta. When you choose tier 8 for example, most of the time you will be bottom tier. Beeing on the bottom mens everything will just slice through your armor. To top it all off, you have to do 2 or 3k your own damage. WG pls decide, you either have to make retarded plays, or do damage.

 

Some will say "just take a tank with strong turret, like IS7". I say bullshet. Good luck finding morons that will shoot you in the turret 50 times without using HE in one battle. I think they mean "get up at 4 o clock and find a game filled with bots, or better yet, rig it with friend at 4 o clock".

 

From my experience the best are sidescraping tanks, if you want consistency, not luck. i recommend T29 and pray for top tier game. I know it has impenetrable turret, but that's not the point. It's a god at sidescraping. People tend to shoot you more often, because it can sidescrape at pretty decent angle. Enemy will think it's penetrable. I still remember bouncing 2 full magazines off of 50 120 on Mines when sidescraping. Sure, the guy was not smart, but that's all about this mission. Now, you will still need to do 2k damage, so make sure you shoot someone at the begining, so you won't run out of HP at the end, but DO NOT kill or scare enemies. Second advice, use stock turret. 300HP less to bounce. It's generally good at sidescraping no matter what tier you meet, but you have a chance to meet t5 which are often not that smart. When you pick some tier 9 or 10, yeah, good luck with that. People will spam HE to death or just rush you.

 

tl;dr

it's all luck.

O-I will not work, believe me. 3xHP + 2k damage, its almost like winnig a lottery.

Man, no sooner did I write what I wrote above I blocked 3 times my HP in T32, the gun is terrible but the turret is top notch.

HE often does not work vs oi, oni and crysler K if you are bottom tier. Even some TD's (like the low tier swedish) can't pen them frontally not even if they press 2. Hopefully those tomatoes will try to pen you and don't know that there is only a 1.9% chance to pen you with gold ammo assuming they hit weakspot.

I was do all my bouncing mission with my mouse. From 100% shoots premium was 70%, HE 20% and 10% was regular ammo.

It can be done with mouse.

For excalibur and chimera mission I was use mouse.

 

Gl for mission.

I honestly think it comes down to luck and the enemies being bad, rather than the tank you drive.

I bought myself an O-I for that stuff. Only challenge is to get a favourable MM.

Did it once by going down in the swamp on Live Oaks as well. Sure I was useless that game but missions are missions. :child:
