I have looked at the Long Haul several times and still have a question.  It has 0/2 which normally means you have to have 2 completions to earn the reward.  And, it must be done in 6 days.  As I read it, to get the reward you need to win 150 battles in 6 days playing tiers V-X.  I can't get it when it's only 75.....now it's 150?   :facepalm:
I'm just saying.....

You earn one random crate when you get 75 wins.

 

The reason it says 0/2 is because you may complete it two times. You are not required to complete it twice unless you want 2 crates.

It’s possible to not only get 75 wins in a week but 150?

Yes, I completed 2-for-2 once or twice. Aside from those times, I'm 0-2 or 1-2. It's a tough place to be in when, on the Monday night before reset, one's win count for the Op is 60/75 (or worse). So close and tempting to get to 75, but with bad luck it can take too many games to get there.

It's a gold.op now after the update, so it doesn't need setting anymore. 

Thanks WG, that is good update content...

Doesn't matter if it is a thousand if you compare it to how many are eligible.  What is the percentage of the total.  I don't mind that I haven't reached it, but I bet there are others that get frustrated by a game that caters to the high end players.

 

Plus, I just read Sadriels comment on the YOLO strategy.  I never even considered something like it.

I used to think it was just because of some of the Merc Contracts, which it is still probably is at the higher tiers (the one with the Light tanks requirements).  However, you also see a sudden increase at mid tiers when this Ops is available, as well.

I have gotten two chests a week more often than not and solo. It's doable, you just need to be hopelessly addicted to the game.

This ops is bad for battle quality, WG knows it but still brings Long Haul up constantly so its just something that has to be accebted. Now as it's there, it's same to complete using the fact that average win rate is 45%. You can yolo this ops out easilly, but it makes you insane if you fully completely it that way. The trick is to play normally to the last day and then set garage filter so that it shows tier 5+ light tanks only. Now just start the battle and try to detect whole enemy team or kill arty in sucidal attack. You are back in garage in 2min and you can start new battle with new light tank. This way you can run 20 battles a hour and get those last missing wins to the meter. Alternativily you can play whole Ops normally whatever tank you like and just yolo out maps that are bad for your tank. Easy profit.

The op is fine and it isn't bad for quality of the game at all, as it doesn't have any silly requirements. It's the players that ruin it. Rather than playing normally, fighting for the win, the will yolo and die. Fortunately, there aren't many who do this and I don't see a significant difference in battles. You still need to pull your own weight to succeed.

 

To all the folks who complain 75 wins are too many:

 

A) it's a challenge, it's meant to be hard

 

B) if you feel you're not up to it, just skip it rather than stress out over it

 

C) any player can achieve the 75 win mark, all you need is time to play an average of 150 battles per week, this op is meant for dedicated players - if you can't make it, see above pt.

 

D) "I hate playing for the wins and this op is forcing me to" - what the hell do you normally play for then? Isn't the whole point of playing the game to win? 

 

E) whether the chest are worth the effort is debatable, personally I would say yes because of the free gold that helps with crew swaps, equipment, etc.

 

F) don't play for warchests thinking you will get a free premium tank, save yourself the disappointment

 

Good luck and happy tanking!

 

PS. Free warchests got me a month of premium and 4 or 5 premium tanks so far. This is not a paid advertisement (but you know where to find me WG, wink wink).

Okay so it's ment for exprieced old players, no wonder I get only to 60 something if I play normally. It's clearly not for me. Now why not put the requirement to 150 win in 6 day it clearly shows that it's even pointles to run ops that is meant to elite unicums. Btw. it's active now automatically so it's for all even for players with 45% win rate.

I read your response three times and I still don't get what you're trying to say, nor do I see any connection to what I posted above. Sorry mate and good luck, I suppose.

Most of the time I complete 1 of 2 per week.

But I have some 2 of 2 too. But it requires too much play time for 150 gold (in vast majority of the chests). So I just play as usual and don’t care how many chests I receive.

 


Don't rush me, I'm waiting for the last moment!

I have never completed even one part of long haul, I just don't have the time or team to get to 75. Closest I ever got was 20, even then I thought that was impressive though with the way greens tend to play :trollface:

I average about 50 per week on the long haul.  I never argued that it should be easier, but it isn't easy for me to get to 50 either.  One thing I do know is that after 5 years, I am addicted to this game.  Just not to the level that some are.  I do other things than play tanks and have reduced my hours from when I first started playing.
