I have the M55 and FV207 at my disposal. My trouble is I don't understand what to focus on to get the mission done. What is counted to make most XP as I need to be first on experience (according to the mission description) and have 3200dmg assisted through stuns/tracking. 

 

If I use the big gun on the M55 I manage to get dmg to top on xp but I dont get the stun damage as the reload makes the shifting battle hard to take advantage of. But if I use the small gun it's "easier" to get the stun dmg but I dont seem to get anywhere near first place on XP. 

 

And then there is the First Aid that most players use when hit so the dmg will not be counted as the tanks that I can shoot are most likley spotted and shot before next round is even in the air. 

 

How did you that managed to complete this mission go about this. I can purchase any arty except the 261 and CGC since I haven't unlocked them and I sold the others since arty well it's arty and its extremely tedious to play now. 

 

I was considering maybe using the BC 15558 but I don't see many players use it. I have 4 missions left for the 260 and this being one of them I am really struggling with. Should I just wait for the rumoured arty changes or try to use papers (as if those are much "easier" to get through honors on the 260 tier.)

Yeah I use food. What I don't understand is how the xp is calculated when playing arty now. I did most of the missions pre changes to arty. It's only recently I started doing them again. Stun dmg gives xp?

I did mine with the FV3805 and stock gun. http://wotreplays.eu...-powjay-fv3805.

 

You can't watch the replay as it's too old, but you can see the results. I can't even remember the Honours part, but I didn't get it. Was it kills?

 

Basically, just fire as fast as you can and it will come.

certain that the stun damage gives you xp but it is not enough

to complete this mission, in addition to the requests that the mission requires, to have a greater gain of exp you need kills , not even a high amount of damage is sometimes enough for this specific mission

 

I completed this mission years ago on the 212a with strictly stock gun due to the shorter reload time

Try to steal the kills from your allies and at the same time shoot multiple targets with one shot to maximize your effectiveness in the game.

 

Matter of time and luck and sooner or later you will complete it.

1) Shoot at groups to stun multiple targets

 

2) Stun people who are about to get smashed by the team... So if 2 or 3 are spotted, shoot the one that the rest of the team can also shoot so you get the assist

 

3) Support the push, no point stunning people in the wrong area of the map who nobody is going to pay attention to

 

4) Shoot people you know have used their repair/med kits

 

5) If it's a long drawn out game blind fire at obvious bushes etc to get your damage/xp up

This is pretty much it.

 

It's rate of fire that's important so you can maximise opportunities.

 

I did mine with the FV 3805, bottom gun, Malinovka, encounter (consider enabling this mode as you get different team deployments that might help with tanks bunching)

You can see the number of shots and stuns. 

 

The reason for using the tier IX was to get more tier X games, so you might consider using the M53/55 with the stock gun. Then you need two teams of average to poor players who play cautiously on an open map.

So you can't finish it With Honours? Neither did I, but then I finished it and that is what counts. As for the rest: blah, blah, blah, blah. And what's with the stupid font? Are you quoting someone else's drivel?

It's  more easy in the tier 8 american tank to be honest, forget about damage, focus on assist as much as you can. And pick of low hp targets whenever you can.

Tier 8 is better in a tier X game, because you get more xp for the assist then a tier 9 arta, since you get all the assist from same tier tanks/or above.

 

Forgot if you want it with honors, you need a monster GB game, there is not enough HP in most games going around to do 4 k dmg and also the 3.2k stun .

There is only one way to do this mission: Pray you get a team that understand the very simple concept that stunned enemies are easier to hit.

After over a year (probably longer) of trying to get this done and even having a battle on Himmelsdorf where I did 4.8k and have total stuns of over 3 minutes! and ZERO assisted dmg, I really have no idea what else to do.

Look at this.

Spoiler

I don't know how much stun damage he had, but i've got 6262 damage + 1097 stun and 3 kills.
That is 7369 combined with 3 kills, and he still got 5% more xp than me.

It feels like something has changed with the xp formula recently.
It is a lot harder to be 1st on your team xp wise in arty.

I recommend getting tier X and enabling battles. The games are usually longer and the maps are open. It is true arty heaven.

I completed this mission recently in a grand battle with the obj 261, 8k+ combined with 3 kills was enough to get 1k xp. I got lucky that noone else in the battle got more xp.
Im sure t92 and conq gc are capable of doing it too.

Always prioritize groups of tanks (usually superheavies close to each other). Finish a few low hp tanks and pray for a long game.

Thing to understand is that arty never does damage on their own spotting 99% of the time. HTs tend to push the front and do damage on their own spotting. So he doesn't lose 50% XP pr damage point done usually. So if he did damage on his own spotting, and got assist from arty. That's one damage source with 100% XP, and one with 50% XP. You just get 50%. And ofc he can get first spot on targets that gives XP, and there is the target tier difference factor etc.

 

Stun gives XP too. But if you stun targets already stunned by other SPG's, the stun XP is shared.

 

The best thing is just to go for the stock gun, and fire constantly. HT lanes or tight groups are ideal. If the enemy is spread out it's less ideal. On the 2nd one, you want to maximize stun times. And the more damage you do, the longer the stun will last. So if you have 3 targets spread out. Go for the one you can pen easier, vs the super heavy you can hardly damage if they are all taking fire. Max stun times listed you need a full pen. On the 1st one you don't care about stun times, just about stunning as many as you can pr shot. I did SPG 15 for the OBJ with the stock tier 9 US, aiming at the HT lane on Mannerheim Line. Stunning 4-5 targets at the time that were also group smacked by other SPG's and my TD support each time they poked up.
