Anyone else wish the long haul was based on something besides wins?  Like XP based perhaps?  

Sorry if this has been discussed any at length in another thread, did a quick search and didnt really see anything.

If it’s based on XP - it would be easier for the veterans and skilled players with many high tier tanks but it would be harder for the new players. So basically it’s maybe fairer to be based on wins due to the less skilled and the new players.

The difference between 40% WR and 60% WR is smaller than difference between 1K XP and 4-6K XP. 


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

I've brought it up before, but it likely will never be changed. Wit has bad as teams tend to be, I don't see how anybody ever completes this.

Either that or the people getting it are always on the red team to the green team's I'm on.

Think about that statement for a second.

By winning 75 games, duh....

Kinda covered that with the second part of my post. I can't seem to carry enough when it gets to be 6 v 1..... and I am tired of having to try to do so.

Getting premium content without paying anything is going to be hard. Of course we've had plain unfair conditions like that fatherland bollocks but 75 wins in a week is pretty doable, even with some work thrown in.

 

If people work more than I normally do, the idea is that they go ahead and buy that single chest with their money (not that gambling with your money is a good idea in any sense), that's what's called a business model.

 

If you ask me asking for people to put in some not-entirely-RNG dependent effort to win something is fair, although one could argue that 75 wins for something that might return gold silver and a boost is a little underwhelming compared to a tank, but I don't recall stuff like the motherland and CDC earnable within a week by anything other than the most diehard players.

 

You generally do pretty well for yourself in most of your recents so this to me just looks like a bad spell for you.

If it would be based on XP it would be hard to YOLO missing wins with light tanks.  :trollface: 

 

Completed the Long haul today,  it took 22 battles to get 14 victories, result General's war chest  275 gold and some boosts etc.  the Long haul is not really worth of stressing up as change to get a tank is low.  I have only got one tank from War Chest and it was Großtraktor tier III tank, a really ugly and a bit useless premium tank.

It's a nice little side bonus.

If you get it, you get it. But don't kill yourself trying to do it.

I definitely concur that it isnt worth stressing over.  I dont think I’ve ever failed to get one, and I’ve gotten two on a couple of occasions.  And I know you dont get much, Ive never gotten a tank out of it.  I just get so sick of crappy teams lol and if it was strictly performance based you’d be rewarded for having a good match.

And for the record, i do have a full time job lol.  But I play pretty much every night and I get in what I can during the daytime as well on the weekends.  Just depends on what I’ve got going on.

It should be based of trees cut.

 

/thread.


World of tanks Auto lock edition,  because aiming shouldn't be a skill.

Not a bad idea!  That would keep all the spawn campers from completing the op lol

Is there a list somewhere of what's in the Chests for this Long Haul Op?
