Heard about this thing yesterday and it sounded a bit over the top since it required you to grind 6500 base exp in 10 battles with Lowe, but after a TopGun+Ace game today i got the offer and the exp seems a bit more realistic but it still seems very RNG dependent on whether you win or lose the majority of your 10 games. Of course there is a price to pay, which is around 4 euro in my case. Wonder if different people get different requirements.

 

PS: "And you will get the tank for free".... yes WG, that's exactly how free works, just like all those PZ2J for 100-200 euro that come for free.

So basically rent the tank, load the gold ammo and pray.

If you can get it for free, then go ahead.

560 exp per game is easily doable for most players. All you need to do is win.

Platoon up if you don't want to risk losing games.

Full gold just in case and a good platoon does sound like a good plan.... maybe find 2 other players with that rental :coin:

Lowe doesn't need any gold. I played 89 games in it when I had it as a rental, and I don't recall a situation where using gold ammo would have made any difference to the engagement. The AP is fantastic, add to that good gun handling... Lowe is one of the best credit makers in my books.

Though with that said, the AP shells are also very expensive, 1k per shell. Gold rounds are 4k per shell... Up to you, but personally I never felt the need to use gold in it.

P.S. use 105-octane fuel. Helps a lot with the mobility.

Where are you getting that mission from, was it an email only offer I can't see it on the WoT main site?

Oh yes I'm sure you don't really need gold unless it's some T10 heavy, it will just make things easier with 294 pen and 1438 shell velocity. I've played way too many T8 heavies with horrible pen and Lowe has one of the highest. 

Fuel instead of food?

 

@Gruff_ Got it after a win, it popped up in the combat intelligence tab in-game.

Yep. It is probably personal preference more than anything, but specifically with a lot of German tanks I prefer to run 105-octane over food. I get more out of increased mobility than I do from a marginal increase to everything else.

Especially since the main reason I use food is to increase viewrange, Lowe has fantastic base viewrange and doesn't need food to increase it.

Woah woah, a lot of people started playing WoT by doing suicide runs with their A-20 tank, and that number includes premium time which i've not used too much so actually the base avg. exp is most likely worse.

 

Played two games and as expected it all depends on whether you win or lose, cause i lost the first and got 400 exp, won the second and got 800. Ended up bang on the 600 average exp with 2000 dpg and 2000 spotting. Gonna do a few more games these days and see if I need to look for a platoon. I never use food and I can say that Lowe with food is amazing.

I had a quick look at your stats and found that you for example 654 average XP in the T32 over 320 battles and I would rate the T32 to be worse than the Löwe any day of the week so I'd say you'd most likely be able to pull this off, you got 575 average XP in your KV-3 even. I also had a look at my own Löwe stats and they are far from amazing since I've used it as a crew trainer, but my average XP is 741 and our recent's ain't all the different.

Played it like 6-7 years ago and I loved the T32. It's funny cause I haven't played it much after getting M103, back then you literally had to play 200-300 games to progress in the top tiers fml. This mission is easy as long as you can do 50% win rate in those 10 games, which is simple until you get the 15-3 faceroll games that go either way. I'm sure more people will start getting this mission, as I first heard about it yesterday and already received it.

I know no one cares, but let's just give this a closure. It was tougher than expected even though it was expected to be tough due to the RNG nature of it all. I finished almost always in the top 2 with 30% WIN RATE. 3/10 wins and some complications with WG support. I'm gonna be pissed for a while about how close it was in the end and the only reason I managed to complete it, is a game where I had to seal club some T6 players into oblivion.... 

 

 

Oh yes, see the picture above and how it says "Grand Battles fought, Random Battles fought +1_8/10"? Well that's a lie cause it does not work in Grand Battles.

 

Screw you, WG support. (sorry, mods)
