I Hate playing arty...

I like playing missions to get the 279 and 260...

 

I belive alot of players like me only play arty because of the missions...

 

Pretty please can we get an option to trade arty missions for more med, heavy or td missions... or even the option to buy us free from arty missions.

The option to avoid arty missions is already there, save up on your orders & use them for arty missions.

I don't like to play TDs, I do miss your suggestion to not have to play TD missions.

I am playing SPGs right now. In three battles with the Conq GC, I have had a total of just over 600 HP damage. I didn't even fire a shot in one before we lost 0<15. GC will get sold, but I wouldn't even play if it was not for SPG missions. Totally mental and dull, dull, dull class to play. Man, I nearly jump for joy when I actually hit something! You should see me when I get a kill!!!

Arty missions are the best, there should be more of them.

I think a fair compromise would be to just allow all players to skip one of the class lines in return for double missions in a preferred class. Most sensible players will use that to not have to play clicker [Edited] (that's the only reason I ended up starting to play SPGs and it feels dirty), while some who are incompetent at the real game (driving tanks instead of clicking a lottery) can then skip a non-SPG line.

Arty missions are the easiest and it's fun targeting the same person for the entire game

And when someone does it to you while you're actually playing the real game not this map clicking mini-game, you realize how unfair it is. Not going to have much fun playing real tanks if server pop keeps getting discouraged from activity by 3 arty games. :)

Focusing two-man 279e platoons. Even your own team likes you then. :)

In your first post, you did say that you believed most only played arty for missions... and tbh you can say that about any class for some. I'm a medium and light player. Other classes of late have been more on the mission aspect when used more so than anything else. Inc TDs and HTs.

 

But, as before the orders. If you did 4 classes with honor, you did not have to do the last one at all. Now you have orders. And that's what you use them for. To skip the stuff you hate. If that's arty, well then that's what you save it for vs skipping a mission on classes you like to play to get to 15 etc. So I don't see the need to make it "easier" on top of that to change class missions etc based on preference. Tanks are rewarded when you show versatility, not just in one class.

Wrong. You are stating it as a fact when in reality it is your personal opinion.

Do you agree with his opinion though?

I might be a bit special here but i general don´t care about missions if they require me to play xy class and i am not interested in playing this class.

I simply want to enjoy playing the game the way i like not jump through hoops to get a banana at the end for doing so.

But at the same time i don´t care about rewards either so at least for me it never was a problem to ignore the whole stuff entirely.

 

Ultimately playing the game is fun, playing the game in a certain way to complete missions is work and i rather spend overtime at my job and use the money on things i enjoy then spending hours doing work for free in a game just to receive a reward. No hard feelings to those that like it, if you enjoy it go for it, if not don´t but don´t cry about it.

Atleast for the first campaign, you used to be able to skip a class of missions by doing the other 4 With Honours (well, the #15 Mission, right?). They changed that though to my memory, and it certainly wouldn't work with the second campaign.

I feel the same about bouncing missions. I find no fun at all being asked to park my tank at the right angle and let it be shot.

You can still use orders to complete missions for both campaigns?

I would even say some missions are damaging to the overall game experience for others. As they lead to people doing weird things and are more focused on fulfilling a mission then helping their team to win.

Had a light tank player tell me something about he has a mission to kill 2 arties or so, resulted in him hiding for the most part till one flank was cleared then yolo charged through, killed an arty and died. Besides that no contribution to the game done.
