So its there for everyone, sub-mission list shows up in the Missions list so no point repeating here.

 

I'm going to be needing at least 26 Certificates (Efimov medal & 5* turret kills in single battle) to complete this, another up to about 80 worth if I'm having a bad/lazy day.

 

How does one go about purchasing Certificates?

Can I get them for Gold/convert Tokens?

Do they roll-over to next Certificate event if there are spares?

You can activate this order for free in the Supply Service till 28 April (19:00 PT / 22:00 ET).
Missions can be completed till 30 April (12:00 PT / 15:00 ET).

25 missions are already waiting for you. Complete them and receive not only the Tu-1, but also an exclusive decoration set (paint scheme, nose art, emblem) for tour new warbird.

 

For the first time, it is now possible to resume an operation order without losing its progress. This will be useful to those who did not have time to fulfill the order's conditions in the allotted time.

 What do they mean about resuming without losing progress? Did the whole thing reset if you extended previously?

Kinda pricey :unsure:

I wish I could get them for Gold or Tokens :(

More grindy and outlandish mission requirements. I won't be aiming for this. All missions in the list should be active at once so we can gain progress toward them all. It's laughable really these things. DCing after every round, and other game-related issues, we should all be given this plane for free.

Actually, the missions don't look too bad. Especially compared to the Ju287 grind... for a tier 9 tech tree plane.

 

Still, the Tu-1's stats look patently awful. I don't think its really worth it. The equipment otoh...

Certs are now in the store.  Not sure how many you need to buy to skip everything.

Exactly.  Do I really want this T7 dog?  I mean, the Bf-109Z is better in pretty much every way.  And the Ki-102 just whips it.  Maybe it'll be one of those aircraft that WG buffs later?  LOL.

 150.

There is a real handy indicator at the top of the mission list that shows how many certs would be needed for remaining missions :)

$32 US to skip all the bullspunk

 


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

Well I saw a player with one already.

He got 10725 pp vs my 9570 in Ju 288A, we won :)

 

Edit: My B-17G died very quickly twice to another player one next battle, did see him chased down & eliminated by a Ki-94-I though.

Your extra certificates will be converted to gold after the event .  I think at 63g for each. 

 

Regarding losing progress, if you didn't extend the time with tokens in the past marathons, you would lose your progress and the Order .

 

So this is an improvement for people that can only play casually, like on weekends.

Oh so will be able to do some missions one weekend, restart it next weekend & do some more?

 

Currently on the Akamatsu Medal which is proving annoyingly hard to get, its one of those things I'll get one, maybe several a night of play but then when you want one get nowhere close to getting :angry:

I don't even know why I'm so into this, I have way more planes than I even play already & performance of this thing looks somewhat questionable.

But I bought 50 certs which gets me past the ones I definitely need to skip with a bunch of spares for the annoyingly tricky ones, skipped the Akamatsu.

 

100K damage to ground targets was surprisingly difficult, not because its a difficult target (it isn't) but because of the higher than normal player count.

The players on my team kept stealing my opportunities to do ground target damage.

I got all of 2* AA & 2* Medium target kills in the B-17G, A-26B & Pe-2-M82 suffered from a heap of caps flipping just as I got over targets/after releasing bombs, got there in the end but took waaaaay more battles than it would normally.

I wouldn't mind getting it myself, but I have neither the money nor the time right now, so I'll just have to settle for unlocking, buying, and grinding the Me-410 here in the next few weeks. Well, that, and perhaps the P-38F, as well as maybe the Mosquito if I can ever start performing consistently in my Beaufighter.

 

Let me know what you think of it, though.


An average player with an average goal: greatness, someday. Today, mediocrity will have to suffice. But no matter, I will always play to the best of my ability, and I will always strive to make the best of my ability just that little bit stronger and better.

Done.

Yes, if you are casual player you're likely to have to extend it a time or two.. but it's -VERY- achievable even for a casual player from my view.

You completed the whole shebang already? :amazed: :great:

Did you skip any with Certs?

 

Its been a pretty frustrating day of mostly pretty slow progress for me.

No skips this time, too broke lol. It is complete and it is a fun bird. 

The Kozhedub almost blocked me. I forgot how hard it is to get that one on purpose, but the XF-90s mind numbing speed made it possible to zip around fast enough. Akamatsu also tried to repeatedly elude me and I strangely ended up getting it in my Swift I think? Again, speed was a key.. Matches were going by quite quickly tonight.
