Well, I can tell you this: I'm not lying. Not sure who would come on a forum to lie about something so silly, or why someone would think one would lie about this, but what ever. Believe what you choose, but Storyteller XI gets you 30 days of premium, regardless.

 

WTH? Storyteller chapter XI?!?

Now I wish to know how many chapters are there in total and what are the rewards to finish them. RaiBOT please help with this..


 

The 13. (Tiger) Kompanie, of Panzer Regiment Großdeutschland, reported on the performance of the 88 mm KwK 36 L/56, when their Tigers engaged the T-34: "First round hits were usually achieved at ranges between 800 to 1,000 meters. At these ranges, the Panzer Granate (they are referring to the PzGr. 39 APCBC ammunition) absolutely penetrated through the frontal armor, and usually still destroyed the engine at the rear of the T-34 tank. In 80 percent of the cases, shots from the same range hitting the side of the hull toward the rear of the tank resulted in the fuel tanks exploding. Even at ranges of 1,500 meters and longer, during favorable weather, it is possible to succeed in penetrating the T-34 with minimal expenditure of ammunition" (JENTZ, Thomas L.; Germany's TIGER Tanks - Tiger I and II: Combat Tactics; op. cit.).

3 MoE tanks: T-34, Pz IVH, Tiger I, Pz.Kpfw. T 25, M7, T-50

There's a difference between lying and joking. But, honestly I believed you, it's just when I saw the 1200 number that I began to question it.

Played the Story mode, got offered the tank bundle, didn't get the Achievement Story Master. Played through it again in Challenge Mode just in case. Took a few tries to finish the third chapter but finally did it. Still no Achievement. 

 

Overall liked the scenarios and would love love to see the maps from it in the regular game. Once I feel like playing again.

Is there any time limit in these battles, I tried to go to play this new War Story, but I got sudden "Service Unavailable". Now my tank is in battle, but I'm not, so do I need to contact support or is there some time after my tank comes back from war story battle?

 

I didn't notice any time limit, and I played all three chapters in Kennedy's War. 

 

I think its 30 minutes, i pressed back once and said 29 mins. In the last you do have several cap timers however.

Fun Mode, An AI did force me into the cap circle as was doing peekaboo hull down and couldn't reverse so went for it with 3 Tanks surrounding me. Was on final mission on the 2nd cap timer.

I get you. But man, each Storyteller does seem require a ton more games each time.

Seriously, how many chapters are there? And what rewards you get for completing them?

I have no idea how many chapters there are in total. I only play Live Fire a bunch of times a day and get 20000-50000 silver a game--tier dependent.

That is the only one you can play that many times and it's great for silver farming...LOL...other chapters are taking too long to finish...but it seems to me that WG nerfed it with this last update...somehow I think earning potential is significantly lower...I used to play three times per day when possible, and would get 45-50k (per run) in 15-20 minutes playing Live practice..played it couple of times after this last update but now it seems I can't get over 40k with the same tank as before...

Yep. It was apparently an Xbox thing. I started it up after lunch and the Achievement was there. Never did pop. So I got my ulcers all upset for nothing. :(

I'm making 20,000-ish silver with my British Bull Dog and roughly 50,000 in my KV-5 with the x2 ops.

Nice, what's the secret? I know one is about undetected but most of the time you have to be close enough.

When I play it I use T95E2 and 1.25 silver boosts (there are 3 of those but only 2 seems to work)...so I run 3 games to use those x1.25 silver boosts and manage to earn 45-50k each run (that's without premium) ...with premium time I get 65-70k..but now it seems to me that earnings significantly dropped...now I get under 40k quite often...so now I'm not playing it quite often..

 

Actualy Proving grounds once per day earns 160k (250-ish k with premium) for just one run...

Dude, in Live Fire I just destroy the first four while in spawn; move to next location and snipe off the next seven from the hill; then move up to kill the two arty; then wait for final two enemies. It takes only five or six mins a game.

Only stupid thing about WS is that you lose your daily x2 boost on your tank (if you have it) and xp gain is really miserable ..Proving grounds don't activate daily boosts and you can get 3 times more xp in a single run.

Yeah, the Trophy Hunter and Guerilla Tactics are only x1.25 silver, my bad. But coupled with the KV-5, it adds up if you do it habitually each morning, etc.

 

Yes, PG is great with the silver ops. I use my JT8.8 for that. I average 300,000 once all the silver ops are completed. It adds up
