You were right on the money.  I think this might be the closest historically that I can remember.  For those who worked hard to get 1 or 2 extra completions, thank you.  You made a difference.

 

Hopefully, the best players on this forum can come to an agreement on Freedom or Liberte, they are both worth fighting for.

 

France for me unless Sweden wins then the S1, Freedom is good too but i have a T95E2 :)

My plan is 2 completions except the Final and Sweden vs USA where i'll try for many as possible but may do more if i enjoy it :)

UPDATE!

Team FRANCE average rate of Completions: 1.429

Team JAPAN average rate of Completions: 1.421

Team FRANCE is the Winner! 

 

Excellent! My dreams of earning a Liberte live to see another day. This is the kind of result I like to see. Both teams were very close, and neither team steamrolled the other. Well-fought, both teams!

Very surprised how close this was, given the difference in grindable lines. I was convinced Japan was at a natural disadvantage due to the limited size of their tech tree. The French also have some of the most unique tanks.

Tons of players who participate in Tank Madness won't guarantee the winning for the nation. The more players who get more than 2 completions, the more chance of winning the nation will get. :)

Nice.

 

As for China, I'll do as much completions as possible, while for the USA I will only do one...

 

In the Finals it will be France for me

Sad to see the senshi out of reach, I put in work for Japan! Looks like I'll be playing for France on that side of the bracket. Most interested in the legion for the Chinese now. Let's go China! Moa Moa Moa!

:D Why!?  This is the final score.  SUPER ULTRA close! :ohmy:

 

​Well, to my surprise, having picked Japan and losing by 8 thousands of a point, I still got the 1.25 bonus on French tanks. So what's the point of picking a team if you're going to get the bonus regardless of your choice? So from here out, I'm playing 1 and done, to qualify for 3 days prem and 50K silver, and then play whatever I want, and for 3 days, play the winning team and so forth and so on etc. etc.....

only motivation to do completions is loot drops of silver, XP or Crew XP boosts at random.....

Loot drops are the biggest reason for doing more than one completion the next two weekends. Planning on doing just one is not good for the team you choose and likely what almost bit France in the tush. One might 'qualify' you to get the three days premium and silver, but you would be creating extra work for your team. Why bother even joining? Hold out until the finals.

 

I totally understand new tankers only being able to get one completion but any veteran with medium or better skills and tanks should shoot for a minimum two completions.

May I add ''per day'' to the end of your sentence.

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

​Indeed you may. I am fair to middle and had no trouble with three plus per day each weekend. I was getting five point matches in a brand new, stock but upgraded over the weekend Tier 4 French medium, and AMX 13 75 light, both starting with 75% crews.

 

There are two valid excuses for getting just a single completion:

 

Legit newbie (been there myself, getting points just starting out is difficult)

 

or

 

Deliberately to try and scuttle a Nations chance at a win (okay less legitimate than a dark strategy)

 

If you pick a team, shoot for minimum two to three completions if you have any competence at all.

 I have been very limited in play time (15 battles per day during those weekends) and managed to average 4 completions.  I thought that wasn't enough but I've seen that the average completion is barely 2 for Germany and not even 1.5 for France! It seems a lot of tankers are just "one and done". 

So China has a lot of premium tanks compared to Czechs two; and three lines compared to just one.  So I hope if the majority will chose China at least they'll put in some work because those that pick Czechs are going for insane completions just by knowing they're underdogs.

My minimum is 3 - China - just don't really have any tanks that gather points, so was struggling to get 3 completions.

Don't take it bad but that's why german will win because no one, even the forumers, read news correctly and until the end. Rewards is for the winning team and about the winning team. It's fair to me to not see an op's about loosing team.

I'm sure most of players who participided didn't yet understand that they can win a tier 8 premium tank. They will run for german if tab op's doesn't clearly explain they can win a Freedom, liberté or Légion by playing something else that german's tank.
