I dont even turn mine on. It's a false reward. Looks like they are giving you a great reward but its unattainable. Ironically, the people capable of putting in the time for it most likely have no need for its contents, due to already being invested in the game. New players need something like this. Ie only available to those with <5k games, and earnable in 25 victories.

I am usually done with all the daily OPs by my 10th match, 5th or 6th if having a good win streak. As for the Long Haul OP? I don't even have it selected. Why, I usually only play about 20 matches a night during the week, sometimes not even that. On the weekends it may be more. but lets say roughly 140 matches a week. It cuts it very close as I need a very good win rate to hit the 75 wins. I have tried 3 times and won it twice but had to put in extra sessions for one of them and it felt like a chore. Not worth it as the rewards were crap.

I was playing late last night to get my last 5 wins took forever

I got 150 gold and some free xp!

I've earned lots of free tanks, loving the earnable gold and trading in tanks.

However I must've bought/earned 40 chests now and not got a single tank

I do start to question my own sanity in chasing the Long Haul.......

 

Managed to get it again this week (one chest only, of course) by virtue of playing 102 games between Friday and Monday. Dumped an inordinate amount of time into the game while working on various other goals. Long Haul story short - as usual, got the Commander's Chest with the minimum prize inside. Mildly disappointed, but not at all surprised.

 

The Long Haul Op is one I figure to leave turned on (since it is now the only Op we need to select these days). But it is not something I would actively chase, as the payout seems to be mostly very little given the time and effort it takes. 

 

Still, I'm not mad about it. Sometimes Ops aren't meant for me.

10 minute long battles? Lol! :D You're lucky to have a battle last 4 minutes, these days.

It was a guess. I reviewed my in battle times of the tanks which I played and and 5-7 minutes for me. 

Your tanks played recently have stats suggesting they have  averaged longer than 4 minutes in battle, many of them over 5 minutes. Well except for T-rex but that hardly counts for the OP. That time is only counting your average time in the battle and not how long a battle might go for, how long you spend queuing or how long you spend waiting for battle to load prior to the 10 seconds kick off  either or how much time you spend reviewing post battle summary, watching the battle outcomes, if platooning, tank selection choice delays....If you add it all up it's closer to 10 than 4, at least for me. 


 

Playing it safe

They did not think there was enough capping and tilt games going on so they created this op
