Seeing as how I can only participate in maybe 1 set of missions per day, I'm out of this one for sure.  I'm not sure why mission resets are during the prime time hours when people are actively doing something else (ie: work or school).  It would make more sense if the missions reset at noon and midnight of the timezone the server is in.

 

US East would be EST noon and midnight, and US West would be PST.  That would give people from noon to midnight to complete one set after work/school and midnight to noon to complete the next set of missions. 

 

But what do I know, I'm just a noob scrub.

Thanks to Wargamings reset times, I get to lose a mission set every weekday.

Based on the timing, as before we should have 29 sets of missions (one free if you don't complete your Sunday missions) - assuming the WG didn't change the mission start mechanics when your incomplete missions get extra rewards right after the event start. Otherwise we will have 28 sets. 

You do the math.

 

 

Did they tank the amount of currency you get from missions? Every other event I would get 1200 for the first and second slot and 2200-2600 for the third.

Yes. It is the mission rewards. I guess they changes that from the previous events.

About 3 and a half more hours till I get to see how much the missions are worth. Keeping my fingers crossed in hopes that they will be same as all the other events.

I'm hoping those statistics are wrong, cause I miss a mission reset everyday.

God I hate these events. The missions are just stupid, the reset times sucks, collecting pins, or geese, or whatever just blows. Not even going to try for this one.

Here is how you should do an OP. Award points for where you place on the winning team each match. 7 for 1st, 6 for 2nd, etc. The top three players on the losing team get 3 points for 1st, 2 for 2nd, and 1 for 3rd. The last 4 players on the losing team get nothing.

These points can then be traded in for prizes, with the largest most expensive prize being an award tank.

See how easy that is? It's a system that would reward good players for doing well. Not some convoluted [edited]grind event.

Find me on Discord, [SpartacusDiablo#7879]

Rest in Peace CJ.  You will be missed.

Wish they would make it a complete xp grind.

I was on the fence at first but I started the grind. I kind of enjoy trying to get the event tanks (some have actually been quite good). What I don't like is that they are done on missions. It encourages bad play (even desperation at times, like this morning trying to kill a TD and after 10 or more battles not seeing or getting a chance I finally charged an ISU152 ignoring everyone else just to kill him probably to his dismay). The other problem is I seem to constantly get supremacy missions but then can't get into a supremacy battle for 8-10 games. 

The other thing I don't like is how bad the teams can seem to be during the events. Last night I couldn't buy a win. Team would die incredibly quickly and there I was alone wondering why? It gets very discouraging at times. 

I really think WG would be better off doing the events based on XP (like Tankenstien) rather than missions. I think it would make for a happier player base for sure.

Well, it would be nice if Blitz made it a Free tank Grind, and also Added a Lock on buying before everyone else.  Fine, I could care less about people buying them rather than earning them. But lock them out from doing it until a day before the event ends. It's so ridiculous, I had a guy on my team about 15 minutes after the contest started already driving one. He did 102 damage. His stats 38 WR 300Avg. damage. Well used!!! NOT!!!!!

I Love it when you call me Big Poppa, I love it when she calls me Big Daddy!

I plan to just play the game as I always have and when the event ends, I will use the grace period to go as far up one or other of the lines.  I haven't paid much attention to this event as the tank looks as ugly as the two mutants from the last one ...  I'll just be happy with whatever incidental rewards I collect for playing :)!

Wow - work your butt off or pay through the nose and you'll get an under-equipped lump of pixels which will make you a prime target for angry unicums in their highly-equipped tanks .. what a deal

Yes you can. You need 28 tier X missions to complete. Already been mentioned by WG RU forum admin. So get ready for tier X foolishness again
