So its an improvement on everyone trying to do 10,000 tracking damage - all at the same time, meaning no one wanted to shoot the enemy , everyone wanted to track them - BUT everyone will want to spot at the same time now , and wait for everyone else to shoot the enemy.

 

I expect a hoard of YOLO lights and no one actually shooting !

 

WG these missions are ok when its individuals campaign missions, but when Everyone has to do the same mission at the same time its a nightmare !

 

How about letting people chose which order they do them in , a bit like campaign missions so at least we are not all fighting for the same spotting damage ?

These week long specials are pretty neat.  Some people can play evenings, some only at weekends, so everyone gets a chance.

There are FAR too many players who are concerned ONLY about damage ... wining doesn't matter, marks, XP, credits, missions ... don't matter ... Only Damage and WN8.

 

So don't worry too much ... especially for a few PR boosters and 10k XP.

 

You remember Fame ?  Look at their can page motto ... "Don't win, just do damage!"

Oh yeah I forgot , there are so many FAME players , they are in virtually every game I play....... NOT!

Did you actually play whilst people were all trying to get tracking damage ?

 

I did . I watched hundreds of shots track tanks and saw my team waiting until after the tracks were repaired only for them to track the enemy as well.

 

Under normal circumstances the tracking damage would just flow - my actual experience was no one wanted to damage a tracked tank but sometimes they had no choice.

.

Expect similar with spotting damage.

 everyone trying do...

I like to think a lot of players do as I do; just play the game and take rewards as they come.

 

Frankly with all added bonuses lately it's getting silly. We now have:

  • Various missions, both weekend and during the week
  • Top of the tree
  • Personal missions first set
  • Personal missions second set
  • Blueprint reward stuff
  • The tank stamp stuff or something like that (announced yesterday)
  • Missions for premium account
  • Probably forgot some twitch prime stuff as well

 

And besides also other game modes, ranked, frontline, clan stuff...

 

So yeah, I usually just check rewards if there is something I really want (tier 5 premiums for easy marathons mainly) and otherwise I don't let these missions affect my gameplay at all.

 

Edit: feels the game is selling out lately, with all rewards, black market deals, crew book stuff. Its devaluating. Cow is running dry?

I mean, couple of days ago in 3 out of 5 battles I met someone from GE-PL in the opposite team. :mellow:

That was really a funny special. I am absolutely sure I experienced people *not* shooting at immobilized tanks, maybe so no one could complete the special or, as usual, because no one cares what everyone else is doing in the battle. Anyway, since almost everybody uses repair kits to repair their tanks in a second, immobilizing anyone is useless and the mission was almost impossible to complete, unless you spend whole day shooting at tanks with a 155 mm arty.

With spotting it goes like this: drive a light tank, spot tanks, wait logically that someone will shoot at a spotted tank. Nothing happens. I have a theory: most players in this game have yet to realise that the weird blob in the right lower corner is a *map* and it shows enemy tanks when they are spotted. Instead, they rely on their own capabilities, spending the whole battle staring forward and hoping someone will drive in front of their gun.

Expecting support from your random teammates is like waiting for a toaster to bake the toast.

 

You spot the whole time...but nothing happens...and when you give up and drive away yelling "useless campers", then they start shooting.

Doesnt even seem to be a mission, just play as normal. Dont see the point of dressing it up as some sort of special.

U mean play like a team of 45% vs 48-55% ?

Cause that's what "randomly" happens. 

+by support, u mean, if u can't kill most the enemy on your own, u will loose

Win battle and top 3, pass

Took nearly 30 games to get Allies mission done and that was just 6 wins with the lousy teams but you want people to get wins AND be in top 3.

Apparently it was changed? It now says three wins in the top-10... (just had a win where I was number 5 and the mission went up by one, so I checked)... :great:
