Just noticed the Long Haul Op has changed. I was so busy trying to get my 2nd 75  wins in before today. I didn't notice it has changed to 28 day op repeat 5 times.  Great news for those who had a hard time just getting 75 wins in a week - you now get 28 days.

I agree.  I LOVE this change! You can now get up to 5 a month it seems. Probably worse off for those who can get 2 each week, but better for those who have less time to play. Since they’ve started the long haul, I’ve only gotten it twice. Now, at least I can get a couple each month.

I often managed to get both chests during the weeks the Long Haul ran. I think that this change might mean 1 less chest but so much better due to relieving the stress and pressure I think it's a great change. And I also think it's going to help people who generally don't play enough to get a chest in the old 2 per week format. 

 

GG WG!

I love this change.  Mainly because it makes it less stressful to achieve.  Best change to an OP.

similar - I just don't have quite enough time right now to break out 150 wins a week.

 

I appreciate the change.

 

Hope the lighter grind feels better to most.

When a person resorts to attacking the other person rather than focusing on the issue (aka argumentum ad hominem), it becomes pretty clear they have nothing else to contribute and are wrong.

Agreed, prefer this format..... and got my first tank in a Long Haul warchest. Captured KV1, not really my style of tank, but it was free and might be useful for a future trade in.

I also like that it’s now an automatic Op so you don’t do like I used to do a lot and just forget to activate the stupid thing. 

When the nice guy loses his patience the devil shivers.

I'd say keep the tank

Plays like a light heavy, responds VERY well to armor angling and side scraping.  Even bounces pretty well against higher tier guns. Every bit as good as the Churchill III.  I'm average but have a >60% win rate.

 

Got a Radley-Walters using mine, was one shot away from a Pool's, Fadin's, and Kolobanov's in that same match. Ran out of ammo, tank too slow to ram him. Last opponent got away with 4 hp left, took me out with under 10 seconds left to cap.

 

And all that was before the recent buff that improved it in several ways.

All sounds good, but i rather play my other Brit premiums, Snakebite / cromwell / Sentinal t6 / prem firefly / Centinal / 4220 or something.

 

So I'm hoping I can trade it, sorry wg :(

I use mine whenever I get one of those “get 5 shots” or “damage 3 different tanks” ops. Especially if pressed for time (life) it’s an easy way to knock out some out. 

 

But this is a great change I applaude WG for listening to the community

One of the best mini-changes in recent times. Good job WG team :)

Funnily enough, after the change was the first time I managed 75 wins in a week :)

 

E: Meant to say I agree with the op, good change. Also, it's nice to see the players with more time not begrudge the others a chance to complete the operation.

I've only ever received a commander's chest with 150 gold and xp bonuses.

Medals: 3 Pools, 6 Oskins, 12 Orliks, 33 Radley-Walters, 69 Kolobanovs, 93 Devastators, 1437 Top Guns. Survivor: 41 battles.
