I can tell why: If you distribute it across small objectives with difficult requirements, people will play and call it quits. Though if you scatter the objectives per battle count, people will have to play more, stay logged in for more, ergo more players in the servers.

 

But it feels a bit like a job if you solely want the reward, which I know one should not.

 

But still, the fun was when it all started. Now, Tankrewards doesn't feel "fun"...

 

That's my take, anyway. Your opinion?

I didn't consciously engage in Tank Rewards. Just saw the pop-up in the game client, clicked on it, and saw I was already at lvl 4 or so. All I did was play just as normally do. So... it didn't really feel like a grind because I didn't know I was grinding.

They're like mini-marathons with literal "tank rewards" so I quite like them. I don't mind the grind when there's a tank at the end of it.

The missions require you to either play much, or ultra much. I would prefer a Marathon like set of sir-play-a-lot and reasonable skill missions.

 

Play many battles tier 1-8 or play many battles tier9+10 is lame.

I think you got something wrong. This here is about tankrewards.eu :)

Just skip this one, its no big deal. 

 

Next time when a daily log in is sufficient I will participate again. 

 

They are just testing player behaviour, best to ignore this one.

Is it really a grind when all you have to do is just play the game? If you dont  play the game why do you care about the rewards?

yeah, the daily missions since the re-format take the piss, and I'm not interested in getting rewards for playing stupid numbers of games every day for the sake of it. I got the last tank easily due to the Easter bonus, but I didn't bother with the one before. This mode has now gone from a 'I'll try to do that' to a 'I'll just play normally, and whatever rewards I get for showing up, I'll get'.

Considering they just "happen" in the background, and I've had more or less every reward so far. I've never been to excited about it anyway.

 

Tho there are some stage rewards prior to the end rewards that have been nice. And are just a bonus for playing normally. But as more or less all of them so far besides one have given the end reward if you do at least 1 battle a day for the 100 points. I don't see the major issue with forcing you to play for longer. That's mostly just if you want it faster.

level 3 rewards is perfecty fine for me. Any time I achieve more, I consider it a bonus. Way too many events & specials happening at the same time.

That's sarcasm, right?

Still, I just played randoms as I generally do then checked one of those Intel pop-ups in-game and saw I'm on lvl4. Without even knowing I was taking part in it. Then took all the rewards up to lvl4 and played a few more games for the premium tank. Had it been a grind I probably wouldn't have liked it.

1 game/day was enough for tank rewards. 

 

I wouldn't call that a lot.

Yeah the last tank rewards was easy af and gave the tog II which is pretty nice collector tank (type 64 is better but I can just buy it in the shop whenever). 

 

This one though doesn't have any good rewards.

Recently 1 game/day will get the top reward, even if you lose that 1 game

Again, you can get 2500 out of the 3000 required just logging in, clicking battle and going AFK while you make a cup of tea. If you actually want one of the tanks that means you only need to put in a few days of grinding over the next 3 1/2 weeks to get the required points. Plan your time accordingly, or don't. Player choice.

the Tank Rewards grinds are usually more fun than that new, extremely frustrating 'Road to Berlin' game mode nonsense.

all you have to do for tank rewards is play normally.

play a lot, granted.

TankRewards is alright, WHEN and IF it happens naturally while you're playing. If you feel like you're forced into it, then obviously you got baited in. I've managed somehow to grind all the way to the max tier last month, because I was grinding few high tier tanks. IS-3-II, GSOR and whatnot.

 

Road to Berlin feels like a chore. A bad one on top of that. As a "solo player", I have to rely on teammates that often are quite bad, passive, inactive, unable to aim or just suffer from brain trauma from their childhood. I'm not saying "I have to carry them", but I can only hope that they at least do their fair amount of the proceedings. While I was fine with the 7v7 Team Clash format (Battle of the Streamers and whatver (go Team Dez !!!)), it was only because it was human vs human mode. It was just as likely to have lobotomy patients as teammates, as it was to have them as opponents. Sure, I've ended up with barely 52% WR in that mode as solo, but it felt good, coz I was getting overrun as often as I've gotten to overrun the enemies. Here is like absolute nightmare. My gunner (whatever tank battalion I tried playing) is always drunk and can't hit unless fully aimed at static/tracked target. My tank armor seems absolute RNG fiesta, coz I sometimes bounce incredible shots to my side in an M4 Sherman, from a JagdPanther, and then get smashed in the gun mantlet in my IS-1 from a Pz IV. It's like - can we get some consistency here ??? Just finished a loosing game in my IS-1. Reached Stage 4 and by then all my teammates where dead. I had 18k damage and 24 kills. For what ? To end up with 450 "victory" points. And IF I don't use those x15 orders, those would've been 30 points ! IMAGINE THE GRIND !!! Sure you can play randoms to get more x15 orders, but that is just another side of the grind. And for what ?! Yet another 122mm gun on a Soviet tank ? It's the most unique combination ever ! 122mm gun plus a Soviet tank - where else could we possibly see that combination ? Oh noes, I has no clue ! Please help me figure this one out !

Get bent WG. I've got midgets to molest, jedi to kill and balls to scratch.

You are also an old player, who was used like back in the days with nothing like now, just simply grind for progress on the tech tree with x3, 4 or 5 in the weekend. Every time I read a complining I see post 2015 player, nothing more.

 

Anyway, there might be secret missions this month as well

I stopped playing to complete missions a long time ago when they started to require far too much of my time to complete. Reward tanks are the result of OSD & the expunge of a lot of money to obtain. 
Just play for the enjoyment of playing. Don't pay attention to missions & they'll complete in their own time. If not, you've still enjoyed yourself. I personally take pride in rolling players in their OP reward tanks in my measly researched tank. Nothing puts a smile on my face when playing this game more than doing that.

Also, don't play for hours on end to complete missions. It's just a game & do you really want to waste the whole day you could of been doing something better on a game??
