Wg, would it be possible to allow people's long haul progress to run over, one week to the next? I typically get my first 75 wins and then up to about 30-40 wins by the next Monday night only to loose that progress. With work etc i just don't have any more time to play to get that second long haul and it feels such a waste. Obviously you could still keep the cap on 2 a week but just not reset on Tuesday- thoughts?

I third this idea- I simply don't play enough games on a weekly basis to win 75 of them at a 50% clip, which is about the best I can do!

I was thinking they should roll it back to 60. Make it at least feasible to complete twice. Rolling it over would make it a bit too easy. The point is to reward heavy play, and rolling it over wouldn’t encourage that as much.

This would take away any advantage currently held by unemployed tankers. And, from the looks of the "Ring the Bell" threads, where you've got people finishing the month long ops in 5 days, there must be tons of 'em.   :teethhappy:

It would be great to remove the Op reset every week but WG would hardly do this for us.

to be fair, this was an extremely easy op to wrap up quickly. One need not be unemployed to get through it in a timely fashion.

Only if you solo with seal clubbers. If you platoon for fun and grind... i had a 22% winrate yesterday while playing above average level. Plus platooning is more time consuming - battles are longer, queue are longer, selecting tanks takes more time... So i support the rolling principle.

Make this op a permanent thing, please. Long haul is one of the main incentives to play the game right now. Every 75 wins I get a chance of winning a tank? Yes please! :)

I didn't realize that they had added the Long Haul OP, again, till very late yesterday. One down side of the automated OP's system, got out of the habit of looking for selectable OP's.

I play only solo {in my almost 40K battles I have less than 10 platoon games} and I've finished the Monthly Op under a week mainly by grinding Mercs contracts plus grinding some TT lines (some of them even fully stock). And actually I've finished the current Long Haul Op twice too {for 2 General's War chests and thus two times by 150 gold :amazed: }.

The big advantage to finish the Monthly Op, since the beginning of the year or so is that all daily and weekly Ops are permanently chosen and I don't lose anything like before when we've had to choose only 3 of them. And also this month we've had quite a few additional (covered) Ops with good points etc.

But - yeah... the battle count per day in general is still a must to finish quickly.

See your point and agree that this would also be a good solution

Make it 75 wins over the course of 2 weeks and it’s completable twice.

So more casual players have a “reasonable” chance of completing it once in two weeks.

And more hardcore players aren’t punished because they can complete it as many times as they do now.

I only log on once a week so maybe they can make it log on once and get a free war chest. I would like that and it suits how i play the game.

Heads up!!  I noticed that it didn't seem to be registering wins. At first I thought it didn't count first win of the day, but it doesn't say that. So I ran my Hellcat and won, it was first of day. It didn't register as a win. Ran the Hellcat again and won again. It did register the win. So then I ran another tank that still had it's 2x. Won that match. This time it did register the win even though it was first win of the day.  Just throwing that out there.

 

Also agree either roll it into the next one or decrease the amount of wins.

 


Welcome to the forums. Where you can call people stupid, just don't call them passive-aggressive.

I'd love to see it last the full 2 weeks with max of 4. 

Often it can be hard to get to 75 wins in a single week. That can be well over 150 games depending on teammates.

I got to 69 wins last night....I had at least a days worth of wins before I noticed it was back. I probably won’t get it now because of that. I don’t really care though, but your point is good.

You still have today to finish it out. You only need 6 wins. I still need 9 tonight, which I consider rather doable.
