Plenty of rewards available for free add one that gives a little more if you buy a premium and people get upset.

 

20 female crew from the first set of personal missions

another 12 from the second set

There were some free crews for Swedish tanks a while back and the ones you could win over Christmas.

So something like 39 crew for free, well you pay with time.

 

I don't see myself getting the last mission and its got nothing to do with time,

Top 3 in XP and Damage Twice in which case I had better hope for some truly awful teams.

Its quite likely that same or higher tier Heavies and TDs will do much better in damage than I will

Still means I will hopefully get 3 out of the 4 Crew members but pity about the special finish.

Maybe there will be an opportunity to buy it ;)

Look getting extra blueprint segments is not an issue same with everything else bar the female crew. great we get things for free for just playing and putting in time well done wargaming on that point. BUT ! you can only do the alternative ,missions in the T27 which you MUST ! purchase and if you do buy the T27 and do the missions you along with the other stuff get in total 3 female crew, these are NOT 3 female crew you actually get at the time of purchasing the tank I have no issue if it worked that way but the female crew are part of the reward for completing levels out of the 10 levels in this mission.

 

This is the issue extra rewards that actually give an advantage over and above anyone playing in any other tank be it premium purchased tank or not, this is not the route wargaming should be taking. Now if they had given everyone the chance to earn the female crew no matter what tank you played in to complete the missions but rewarded those who did so in the T27 with different looking female crew etc ie anything that did not give an advantage just because you paid is fine. this is what wargaming are supposed to do with any premium tank it should not perform as well as the non premium version yet we are starting to see this happen and now this with the T27 it is moving the game slowly but surely in the direction of pay to win.

Agreed. It is a big mess now, and will only get worse when people are going to miss the females when they do the missions in a 'normal' tank.

 

They should have splitted the missions. One mission for all, like we have now for the normal tanks. And one mission for the T27 owners if they really want us to work for the rewards and not give them when buying the tank.

 

The two combined is a complete fail.

Well, you can complete some of the missions and get some free stuff while just playing like usual, without taking any further interest in the whole thing. So ok, fine with me.

That said, not that I like the way they've designed the rewards, with buing the tank and so on. Kind of bad way to go.

It really depends on how you look at it. On one hand yep, there are extra rewards if you buy the tank. But it also means that should you be interested in buying the tank you can get something extra for your purchase :) I think that`s not bad, especially as extra stuff is nice, but nothing really earth-shattering.

Enjoying the T 27 though its a little challenging at times.

Almost never bounce a shell, when you are shot the driver dies, its automatic.

 

Collecting the blueprints to unlock the tier 9 Czech T 50 so I don't have to buy and play the tier 8.

It is a little disappointing that you cannot use blueprints to get the modules on tanks.

 

I applied the 10 blueprints plus 2 I already had and that took me to 54% off the T 50

Just finished today's mission got another 12 blueprints and fully researched the tank.

Now have to buy and play the tank to unlock the turret and top gun so I can use the final 14 blueprints towards the tier 10

When it comes to Skoda: lack of armor is the greatest drawback. You have a decent gun mantlet, the problem is it`s so small it covers only a small portion of your front. In general, the turret can bounce some shells... sometimes and yes, the lack of armor is challenging. 

However, personally I like one thing about Skoda: you wait for a good moment, empty the clip quickly and pretty soon you have another clip ready so you don`t have to worry if some shells did not deal damage, nor you need to worry about the tank being exposed for too long.

So when will Mission 6 start? Its still not active for me.

 

There is no date, time or time counter available. And how the missions are set up, you can easily do them in another tank as the T 27 by accident, which will deny you the extra rewards. That's a bad design flaw of these missions, btw.

Those missions restart later than the normal game daily reset for some reason. We get new Czech missions at 10.00 CEST every day.

Yeah, thanks. Figured that after it became active. Didn't knew about the reset time. From a UX perspective, it should be stated somewhere at the mission.

Do you also think that reward 3D skin for a premium tank that you are not planning to buy is also not bad?

It seems so. 

 

Who are the 'brilliant' people at WG that designed this stupid marathon? I have no words. If I want to get the better rewards I simply cannot play other tank than Skoda T27 because I Cannot Choose the tank I want the missions done with. Or at least allow us to pause the missions while we play other tanks.

I have already done by accident some missions in other tanks. Thx a lot, WG! Thx a lot! 

 

And the fact that we can only unlock one mission a day means those who cannot play on the last day are royally screwed. This is a Huge Middle Finger from WG to his customers! 

 

0 Respect from WG towards its customers. WG, please stick this marathon where the sun doesn't shine.

Nope, that is not possible. You have to do the T27 missions first if you want the extra rewards. If you do the normal missions (by accident) first the mission status goes to done and you wont be able to do the T27 missions anymore

Just got my first one and they are indeed locked to CZ tanks.

 

and ...

 

Unlike other female crew we got earlier. They only get the BIA skill for free and not another one also.

This is better ... That is zero skill and the next skill requires experience quantity as a first usual skill.

That means that if I bought a 250 000 experience for 2mKredit I will open 1 skill and a half!

I like to play aggressive and sometime (often) I get killed in 2 min. It is unpleasant to wait 6-12 min tank back to hall. Mission should be separated ,non t27 mission like it now and t27 mission have only bonus loot. t27 can do both missions same time. the you do not need to wary at you do by chance wrong mission.
