My win rate has gone into the toilet the last couple months.  That's mainly because I decided not to care anymore, and have been driving Bert around wasted drunk. 

Good players cap when something goes wrong,

I’ve completed it a few times mostly just cause I was grinding valor, now that that’s over I doubt I’ll finish any others, nothing to play for other than 1 daily now

Maybe it's because I blow up quickly but I get those ops done in 1 day sometimes, depending if I play all day or not. 1 week is a loooong time.

Cba with it coz all I ever get is a commanders with 150 gold. All I'm saying is, after getting long haul about 5 or 6 times, and getting next to nothing, I shall never buy a war chest 
Bye for now

75 wins required per Long Haul, assume 50% win rate and 10 min ber battle, that's 150 battles over 6 days or 1500 min in battle.

Divide 1500 min in battle by 60 is 25hrs of gameplay (not taking into account login time and inter-battle housekeeping).

Dividing 25hrs into the 6 days to complete the op is slightly over 4 hours of gameplay per day (minimum). Double it if you want to try for the second Long Haul.


In my opinion, the only people that have the time to consistently complete it are the very skilled with high win rates, the unemployed or underemployed and the unattached, estranged, unsocial and/or unmarried.
Bottom line it's not a reasonable op for this average Joe. So it's not even on my radar.

I simply ignore it now. Doesn’t mean a thing to me because I’ll never play enough to get it done.

Kudos to those who can

This, in fact its far, far more efficient to spend 5 mins a day to get all the daily Microsoft rewards "ops" done.

 

I've accrued 4324 points so far just in May, almost enough to get either 850 gold or a decent chest.

 

I'm 0% bothered by long haul. I've just done the Valour op and T78 so might even take some days off..
