Its been so long since i played war stories i dont remember.  I know you can get discounts on premium tanks and some crews with one skill.  You should go have a look.  Save yourself from the pain of playing durning the arty event

There are a few worth it, but do keep in mind the reward offer is only for 24 hours so I would plan on what you want to go after and have some gold ready if you intend to buy anything.

Storyteller ops. If still available. Although you'll need a couple of months to complete them. XP and Silver ain't worth it. Got nerfed ages ago. Isn't worth burning boosts either. Can't train crews or grind. Oh wait. Nah its basically crap and I haven't a clue why wg added it then...  For a better word...  Killed it. 

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm

For slowly training crews away from multiplayer without boosts then yes. 

Some of the tank discounts are good, but I would do them after the anniversary sales if you have gold. 

 

As a direct comparison to multiplayer the rewards are now pitiful. As an alternative distraction where getting something is better than nothing then it is ok. It is useful for one last go when the queue is empty and you haven't quite had enough.

 

Try it and see for yourself. If you exhaust the ops one day remember to set them again the following day as they don't activate automatically.

Add all of the available ops and run Tigerfibel (where Mary Ann has to escape from the factory) KV5, Gorganich  works well, but only 70-80K silver per run now. I have tried other tanks, and none works as well. This will help train Russian crews.  Used to make 140+ before got nerfed. 

This War Story Probably get nerfed again by WG after this post. Probably be the next Pacific Island....

They were good, you can still do them , but depending on what you do. If you are doing the story ops , then it’s ok. If you are doing challenge mode to maybe train a crew or do a grind on a tank, then no. They destroyed the silver earnings and xp is pointless. You can run negative silver firing standard ammo . If you lose but still do great damage and kills. The silver loss can be quite large.

Not much good, yes on the Snakebite tank(possibly the Panther/M10), plus the free random stuff for sure & get the 1-skill trained crews (worth $1 to $1.50 each) ;)    Getting the Wins for stuff is ok, but not worth it....as that's alot of wins to get 5 garage slots + 30 day premium time.
