Wow I can already see this will be a C-6 week.

Nice event thank you WG. Maybe this will help get more population into tier 7+.

2 weeks to do 60k damage?  That should take somewhere between 100-200 matches on average right?  Doable but not a gimmie.

No you only have one week.

 

50K and 60k aircraft damage are you serious? Those are the same damage amounts that World of tanks used for their event and the average HP of a tier 7 U.S.S.R medium is 1000 HP and a tier 7 U.S.S.R aircraft is 263 hit points and you have more of a chance of getting a piece of that 1000 than you are of getting it from the 263. Plus they chances of getting in a battle with a tier 10 is very small, do to the way exp is handed out the majority of the community is at tiers 6-8 so that's what you are most likely get into battle with? For the average player you are looking at 200+ games or 30+ games a day, I can not understand why with the player base as small as it is you make things so frustrating and not enticing to get more players in.

I totally agree. The requirements for the missions are way too high. Please create missions that increases the player base, not something that makes us want to give up on that game.

 

And no, I am not asking for easy to get free premium days, just some missions that are well tiered so that the casual player gets something and the players who have the time and desire to grind get more.

Yep did the math: for 50k with my average xp 204 battles, and for 60k 245 battles. No way I can do that, maybe if I'm not working and have no wife. Sry WG I agree this is ridiculous.

I started the missions just after they became available and I got my total past 1000 damage after two battles (in Tier V), and this was early morning US time when there is a low server pop.  I don't think achieving them are as insurmountable as you suggest.

You have a average damage of 298 which means it will take you 168 battles which equates to 24 a day battles to get the 50000 and if you go for the 60000 that will take you another 202 battles which means 53 a day. Now you have 5,454 which means you have a lot more time to play than most, now someone who has a average 200 damage per battle it would take 250 games for the 50k and 300 games to get the 60k. The problem is they are giving goals that are the same ones that are given in the WOT with less achievable in WOWP because the potential damage pool is about 1/4 that of WOT.

Seems two people already scored over 60k dmg in 1 day...  Wish I had the patience to play that much.  I only banked a little over 6k with 2 hours of moderate effort.  It was a rough night at T8.

Where did you see who made the the 60K. Sad to say but at only 6k a night it will 10 days to reach 60k to bad there are only 6 days left

I understand the need to support/reward players at the higher tiers, but what this game needs most right now is NEW PLAYERS. Having specials only for mid to upper tiers doesn't help bring new people in. They need to throw in some more low tier specials for people who are just starting out, ones where I can go to a friend and say "Hey, if you start playing this weekend, they have a great special going on for new players."

 

Also, specials like this one where "do X gives you Y" need to be tiered. Instead of 50000 damage = 300000 credits, it should be something like 10000 damage = 50000 credits, an additional 15000 damage (total of 25000) gets you 100000 more credits (total of 150000), and doing the last 25000 damage gets you the remaining 150000 credits. Those numbers can be tweaked a bit, but you get the idea. Make it so even if a person doesn't think they can get the upper reward, they get at least some reward for working towards that goal.

I never said it should be easy, but it should be able to be accomplished in 100 to 125 missions by an average player
