We all (probably) like the Reward for Merit random prizes. They need no extra attention to get the reward. A prize randomly appears after battle. Each prize consists of a blueprint (1+), consumables (1+), silver and sometimes a bigger item (optics, binos, garage slot, crew). During a few hours session we can complete even two full cycles of prizes. That means 10+ blueprints and 150-400k silver. 

 

In the upcoming patch Rewards for Merit will be removed and instead of these will be Daily Missions. Daily Missions consists of 3 missions (easy, moderate and hard). Regardsless of their names, all they are very easy and you will have no bother to fulfill them. But the prizes will be very crappy comparing to RfM. Silver will be in a small amount, blueprints will be very rare. After completing all the missions (easy, moderate and hard) there is a "special mission" with a "bigger prize" (which was crappy as well). The special mission I completed required 5000 dmg in any number of battles in 6 hours. The reward was a skillbook 20k exp. But the most important - after completing the last special mission, in the daily missions appeared information that the new ones will be avalaible in 6 hrs. I have completed 3 cycles and got only 2 blueprints. 

 

So, if someone wants to gather some blueprints, this is the last moment to play a lot. In the patch 1.8 blueprints will be very limited. 

 

Example of daily missions

Mission requirements:

Easy - 300 basic exp

Moderate - 2 wins

"Hard" - 3 wins

 

All the missions may be completed at the same time.

It depends on how you look at it. As now the reward system is too random. It could go a full day without getting any reward. Then the next day you get two in a row and get to stage 5 twice with no issues.

 

But as for the rewards? Do you see the circle button in the upper right corner of each box? You can reset the mission and get a new reward every 4 hours. I've gotten prints on a reset. And if you get prints on the bonus stage. That's more or less as good as getting pile on 5 levels. As you don't get 1 then.

 

That and they have been more frequent mission rewards. I mean you can do the weekly football predictions and get a few from there, or even via tank rewards. Not to mention I got about 50 universals from the team clash event. So I doubt they will be more tricky to farm. As they have become more frequent elsewhere of late.

Less blueprints a nerf?

Oh noes, what ever shall we do...

Grind tanks the good old-fashioned way again?

2 FULL cycles in one session!? As in 10 individual rewards? How much time do you sink into this game?

Nice, can I trade all the blueprints I have now for bonds? I promise to whine and call it a nerf.

I dont play long camps. If the game is too slow and there is no chance to win the game fast, I attack and try to make as much as possible. I prefer fast battles - 5-6 mins. The padlock breaks in 3-4 battles (average value), so one cycle is possible in 1 hr - 1.15

Weekend session 2-2.5 hrs is it really long?

Dude, you have all tanks discovered and bought. You have 65 X tier tanks? or so on. The bueprints are not for players like you. However, you will still receive worse prizes in the new system. The 100 bonds at the end of the big cycle are not worth the less amount of silver, consumables and so on.

I'll receive worse prizes than blueprints? Please, tell me more, you got my full attention now.

Oh and less credits?! Oh my, I need more of those, just the other day I burned 60mil on books. So you're saying I will get less credits from easy missions?

 

Bonds. At this stage that's all I care about, and I'll get more of those and less useless universal blueprints to add to the bunch I already got. Win-win.

The blueprints are only the part of the RfM. The whole prize (blueprints, consumables, directives + extra random stuff) in the current system is better than in the new one. Especially when you get the compensation like this:

 

In the new system you'll rarely receive a chance for bonds and once per few days you will get the 100 bonds. Instead of this you could in the current system buy extra books or skill ammo. :trollface:

 

You have a lot of tier X tanks. Do I really have to tell you where the bonds you can get from?

Well, WG introduced blueprints and now everyone is flying through the tech-trees. They've found out they made a mistake and are now trying to slow down the progress again.

 

It's almost uncanny how much this resembles the whole "credit inflation" they caused by the Personal missions and "gold inflation" through the Christmas loot boxes for which they had to introduce the Black Market to drain them (partially).

 

I must admit though, the blueprints were convenient for skipping garbage tanks (deliberate Free-XP sinks) without the need to pay Wargaming money to skip them.

Which tanks? They're chopping so many from the tech trees that soon we won't have anything to research at all, only straight purchases for the 95th t8 premium russian heavy and gg.

There are 600+ tanks in the game what are you talking about?

Nope. It may be a skillbook or some silver, or 500-1000 free XP or other random stuff. Most of the rewards is crappy.

Looks like a Level 1 crew book to me on the screenshot. Maybe they are crappy, but they are still free of charge and you get them by simply playing battles. What's not to like about that?

If that's true it's a very recent revelation since they gave an absolute shed load of them away at Xmas.  Or ........ they plan to give blueprints away in future events.

If you do not like reward, pull the lever and gamble. You might get something that you like.

Depend on what those daily missions gonnna be.

If its something like do 2k dmg without getting spotted it will be trouble....

But if its like do X amount of dmg for that day i will have no problem.
