Also WG need to stop with the joke of first game of the day in a SPG (for me at-least) is a short city map where I am forced to suicide to quickly move on to next match.

I agree. The less arty we have to play the better.

Ok, misunderstood your wishes. You definetly shouldnt worry about that. It just asks...more skills :-) Deal with it.

No, I disagree with that. 3 artys is ok. If there would be almost no artys, only campers would win, That is why this game has artys to make players move and not camp. Also, it is fun to play with artys.

Well, small maps aint always a problem for artys, If you dont know, where to place your arty or how to play with it, your prob. I havent plaied artys a lot, but I have plaied pretty enough with other tanks which helped me to understand where tanks usually go.

It aint so bad for T55a, took some time for first but I've met the requirements surprisingly often after that.

For 260 the biggest problem for me is the top xp requirement. Even more support dmg would be more sensible.

np completed Light medium and heavy and TD missions for T55a used orders to complete the SPG ones.

If I get completely stuck on the object missions I guess I might try to complete the T55a SPG missions to retrieve the orders.

 

I just cannot stand to spend days and days playing SPGs when I can avoid them completely.

WG should do the opposite, especially with the O260 Clicker-15.

 

Those tanks should not be given away like free candy for players, whose only way of getting them is with clickers.

They did say the SPG missions would ofc need to be reworked with the upcoming SPG nerfs and the new stun mechanic etc. If that will make it easier or not is a different matter.

SPG missions are the easiest because you'll eventually succeed. You have no fancy objective as tracking or aiming special tanks or whatever.

All you have to do is play them as usual.

SPG-15 for T-55a was really easy. I did in M53/M55 in ~15 games while (like when I did most arty missions) I was hungover. Just find a redline, camp there, find a comfortable resting spot for your left hand and click on enemy tanks, seriously, it's not that hard playing arty.

Just load gold shells and click battle until you finish it. I did SPG 15 for Obj260 in about 50 battles that way with GW Tiger P...it cost me a lot of credits but was worth it.

 

Honestly I haven't played arty since and have no plan to do it in the near future...just for frontline ofc :)

From what I remember neither was that difficult, they are of course way easier than the other 15 missions because you really don't have to do much.

The arty missions are already the easiest by far.

You can even do them on most city maps.

Took about 15 attempts to get the 260 mission done.

Done those requirements quite often since then just by playing normally.

 

No nerf to missions required and the tanks shouldn't be rewarded for botting

Arty is the reason people camp. Every time people get on an open map like Prok or Westfield or Serene coast, and there are 3 arties, nobody wants to go fight in the open spaces that are designed for MTs or Heavies. As soon as you get spotted you get smoked. Once 1 arty shoots, 10 seconds later the other one comes down on you. There is no safe place. So people stay back and camp.

Try 200 second stun with helping kill 3 enemies when all battles are over in 4 minutes. Even if you shoot nonstop from the beginning till the end of the battle, and do max stun time, it is statistically impossible to get 200 seconds stun. 2 minutes in and 7~8 tanks are dead. After that it all goes downhill. Last year I could barely play 5~6 battles with a 1 hour booster. Now I sometimes play 11. Battles end super fast. All thanks to premium ammo spam. Press 2 and no one has any armor.

these missions are just a miserable experience. cant even do the 15.2 with a tier 7 spg. no one shoots stunned tanks. they just waits till stun is over. and i hate playing this garbage class.

Problem for me other than I get bored playing SPGs for more than a few battles is not having the top tier ones.

These are lines I have never seriously tried to grind.

If I can get on laketown its great because the numpties feed you with damage and stuns galore.

The open maps are good too but Laketown is the dream arty map.

 

Did the Stug IV SPG missions in about 20 games

Y28 HTC took a week or so.

T55 ones are a problem So I used orders, Once I push myself and get a tier 9 or 10 SPG they should be doable.

How do you propose I get the T-55A with only a clicker? Can I get it by skipping LT-15, TD-15, HT-15 and MT-15?

Assist missions are not "easy" per se, you can shoot at the most perfect time and location, if your allies don't shoot while you have stunned or detracked the enemy you won't meet the criteria.

Tho SPG 1 to 14 are way easier now vs before as most of them are just about getting stun hits, timers or stun assist. There are some special tank focus missions still. As in hitting just HT's etc. And SPG-14 has a dual objective that can be done with track assist alone vs 250 seconds of stuns. But you will succeed at some point still on those.

 

But... I would not say SPG-15 is easier now. Before that was just stun assist and get top spots after stun was added. And that was something you got in a stock tier 9 SPG after a few games. But now on the T-55A with honors? As most want the orders for the Obj. Less so. Even on the Obj, 3500 stun assist and 4K damage in a pure tier X game that's not common. As you can't do that in a stock tier 9, as then you won't get the damage. As they are close to MT-12 now in terms of luck needed. As you need a big group of top tier HT's with lots of HP camping one spot so you can hit them for 100 to 300 each. Then you need most of your team to be in a position to hit all of those when you stun them. And not when they have the stun taken off with a medkit and you are reloading. Killing them off before you reload.

 

Now given enough time most will get it ofc. But then agian, most were stuck on MT-12 for months playing nothing but meds. As skill or an easy time will only get you that far.
