Hello,

 

I am stuck on this mission. Finished HT quite easily with Maus (4 years ago), Arty quite easy as well. Did it several times with stock Tier 9 american arty. Light was hard but skill based. Medium is pure luck getting enough TDs. I got it with the Bourraque.

 

I hate playing passive TD campers.. I prefer to play arty.. its less boring. I have the Jageroo 56WR, Grille 48WR, Obj 704 and T95.

 

I have been playing 100s games The only time i got near it was with the T95 on Himmelsdorf with 5.6k damage. I have never dealth 6k damage with a TD in my whole life, while i did 6k in my Maus.

 

I won't use the orders now because I will need it for the impossible missions in the last campaign. I will NEVER get 8k damage. The only missions I can hope to achieve are scouts and arty. In current meta, its impossible to bounce 14k so forget HT.. And 3.5k TD damage seems just luck so I know I will hate that mission as well. 

 

I know I get hope for 6k but Its just insane luck. I do consistently 3k damage to 4k in my TDs but nothing more.

As far as I remember I did it with WT on Pz IV. But as I have also over 6k on T95 it is for sure possible. (I have over 8k on 704, but this was in another meta some years ago.) So if you do not like to stay passive I would suggest to try further with your T95.

I would have done it (if I reached it) in my Tortoise.

Tortoise is great aggressive TD, not boring bush camper.

You probably know this, but activate encounter and especially assault game modes, increasing the chances of maps with good spots for TDs.

 

I also believe grand battles do allow you to complete missions, and 8k damage one is especially good in a game mode with double HP available.

I had to use orders on mine.

8K dmg is very tricky.

 

Max I got on a TD and overall was 6K

I did 5k for the T28HTC with the T95, perhaps on Erlingberg encounter.

 

 

Not sure how I can do this T55A one.   Probably Grand Battles with the E3, but I am terrible at E3.

TD-15 completed on 11th July 2017 in the tier VIII premium Skorpion G. Here is the replay = http://wotreplays.eu...tall_skorpion_g (this game was also Ace Tanker and first gun mark came up). Sadly the old replays are no longer playable with the present client.

You will do it soon with one of your T9 TD's I'm sure. 6k is a nice battle but not jaw dropping amazing. I mean, your tanks hit for 750 dmg per shot that's just 8 full hp shots. Don't get me wrong, I know the reload time with the bigger alpha guns is slower and it's not always possible to find targets with enough hp for a full dmg shot every time and your teammates will be draining targets and killing targets too but it will happen sooner or later regardless.

 

It's amazing how these 6k+ battles often seem to come from a somewhat boring and dull routine battle and the most tame battle it often surprises me when I see the big damage in the result afterwards and I'm "I did over 7k dmg? how? hmmmm... ok that's a nice battle" and then there's some blind shots and an ammo rack for 1500 dmg and another guy gets set on fire ya it just go that way some times.

 

Btw the T95 and Jageroo is a passive camper now? lol! :D Well this is where you might be going wrong and don't get me wrong you don't lead from the front and without support but still, those ain't no bush fapper TDs and the sooner you start to play them more ballsy than that the sooner you get your 6k battle!

Well I completed it recently but honestly its not even that hard. You get a feeling when it is happening though. The advice I can give you is just see and know what is going on using minimap and know where do enemy tanks go/ who you will be facing. Here is the replay of my battle, I was being complete aggressive because I was top tier and the enemies went to the flanks I expected. http://wotreplays.eu...xx-amx_50_foch

Did it with Jpz E100 @ El Halluf I think, not with honors though. But I guess any t9-10 TD can do it, you just need the right matchup to happen.

Interesting indeed. I can hit 8k in random battles on rare occasions but I fall short of the kills requirement which is annoying... to get the mission with honors that is.

I did it in the WT4 on highway. But yeah, you do need a lot of luck with just the right teams and map. Keep at it and it will come eventually!

I did that one for 260 on Siegfried line city in T95 with a very helpful enemy team that cooperated fully by feeding themselves to me one by one. T55-A I think it was with STRV-103b on an 8888 damage extended Prokhorovka game.

fv4005. Did 6 k just a few days ago

I did the mine in many moons back with the t95. But grand battles wasn’t an option then.

Enable grand battles and get i. Your tier tens. Also turn off encounter battles as you get more grands if you do that.

You are right about the metta and block mission so save at least 8 orders for the 260 for heavy missions 15 and td mision 15. Med mission is not has hard as you think with grand battles as you will always have a lot more then 3.5 k Heath in TDS in that mode, took me about a week to play with the bat chat. Light line is easy with the Ebr and arty mission with a mix of the British tier 9 with the stock gun for stun missions and any the t92 hat for damage missions.

Good luck pal

If you don't like camping tds I reccomend you to play T110E4. A beautiful heavy tank with TD class. With that tank you can make 6k dmg batle without bigger problems, if you make smart trades in some city.

 

PD: If you still don't have E4, you can also complete that mission with T30, while grinding the line.

Funnily enough I recently completed this mission with honours in my JagdTiger while I was grinding it. I will admit, it was pure luck that I did it since I was a top tier on Himmels, which gives me a great advantage since a city map is great for a slow tank like the JT.

For me, I figured I'd need a tank like the JPE100 or somethin similar with very high alpha damage to complete it. The T30 was also something I considered but never did do it.

Hope you can get it eventually!
