  1. OT but check the comprehensive "Best Tank for Mission” List thread... (Note: Made pre-arty stun mechanic...) The US line M44, M12, M40/43 worked fine for the SPG 15.1, 15.2, 15.3 missions.
  2. A Mission is any one of 15 individual missions for a tank class; where a "Mission Set" is the collective 15 missions for a tank class. A Mission Set completion with honors refers to completing the 15.X and/or final mission of the set with honors (Missions 1.X-14.X with honors are irrelevant). Players earn a reward tank by completing five Mission Sets, one for each of the tank classes. Full stop. Players can employ any combination of five Mission Set; completions (C), completions "with honors" (H), or "Skipped Mission Sets" (X) to accomplish that. However, to employ the "Skipped Mission Set" mechanic a player requires four mission set completions "with honors" providing the the credit (whether its four commendations currently or four orders with the patch drop) to "skip" the required fifth mission set. e.g. H H H H X / 0 orders (Note: 4 orders locked to skip 5th set) Hence completing the last 15.1 mission frees your locked 4 orders OR completing the last 15.1 mission with honors frees your locked 4 orders and earns a fifth one. Thus, by completing the the first three LT mission sets with or without honors nets you 12 up to 15 Orders to use elsewhere. (Note that your recent post where we started with did not state that SPG15.4 was completed with Honors). Now on to the 260... and recall five Mission Set completions are required... there are a few scenarios but the two I described previously are below H X, X, X, X - One 260 Mission Set completed with Honors (for 1 Order), plus all the previous LT Mission Sets completed with honors (for 12 recovered Orders and 3 new Orders) providing the 16 Orders needed to skip the four remaining Mission Sets. C, C, X, X, X - Two 260 Mission Set completed (Completed with Honors are irrelevant in this case), plus all the previous LT Mission Sets completed (Completed with Honors again are irrelevant in this case) providing the 12 recovered Orders needed to skip the three remaining Mission Sets. I hope this helps but I probably made your understanding worse...
  3. Yes, as it's currently understood. Each LT15 mission completed nets you your 4 orders back (and if completed with honors the 5th Order) for a minimum of 12 orders and a maximum of 15. Thus putting you into the position of either one 260 15 mission set with honours Or two 260 15 mission sets without, earning the 260
  4. The answer appears to be 0... SIV: H H H H X / 0 orders (Note: 4 orders locked to skip 5th set) T28: H H H H X / 0 orders (Note: 4 orders locked to skip 5th set) T55: H H H H X / 0 orders (Note: 4 orders locked to skip 5th set) 260: ? ? ? X X / ? orders
  5. SIV: H H H H H / 5 orders T28: H H H H X / 0 orders (Technically 4 Orders locked on the skipped mission set) T55: H H H C X / 3 orders 260: X X X X X / 0 orders It looks like you have 8 orders available. Therefore more than enough to "skip" a T55A mission set... and receive the reward tank (and two extra female crew from HTC and T55A)
  6. Sorry mate, missed the MT15.4 Completion, disregard. Congrats you only need 8 orders for 260... My understanding is... HHHHX > HHHHC nets your 4 orders back and HHHHX > HHHHH nets your 4 orders back + 1 for the fifth.
  7. This is one deviation from the current system. As I understand it (and the notes indicate) by using orders to "skip" a mission set you also receive the primary reward for that mission set. Thus why players will get extra female crew at patch drop if they have completed 4 mission sets with honors (and have orders allocated to the 5th)... @monjardin I understand it that in "skipping" a mission set you do not receive the honors part. Therefore you need to skip three mission sets for the 260 (12 Orders) and not two mission sets. But dont worry, as noted above you already have 4 orders allocated to the T55A so will have 12 to "spend", not to mention that you should get one female crew (T55A) at patch drop and three female crew (260) when you spend your orders to skip missions and get the 260...
  8. Agree with Stiglic. As we understand it, Orders are simply "Commendations +" Currently, when you do four missions with honors for the reward tank you get four extra "Commendations" that you use to skip the fifth set. That continues under the new schema, however the big advantage is you can recover those if you do the missions and then reuse your orders on a different mission/mission set facilitating fast tracking a different reward tank. Affirmative, 0 orders available, 12 Orders "locked" for skipping missions, 3 Orders available for completing the 5th mission set with honors. So, yes completing a Skipped Mission set (not everyone skips arty... many skip the LTs) with honors will be equivalent/net you 5 Orders... Best case scenario first three reward tanks; 5 Mission Set completions with Honors nets 15 Orders, and 1 260 Mission set completion with honors, nets you the 260.
  9. We could be... In the current system if you do four mission sets with honors, you get the tank and 4 female crew, so you essentially get to "credit" for the fifth mission set primary for the tank and not receive the fifth female crew member. To get the fifth female crew you have to do the mission set. As I understand the change presented in the new scheme, is that when you "skip" the fifth mission set primary with four orders you are also awarded the female crew as well... you do not have to go back and complete the mission set to receive the fifth female crew member. Thus the e.g. in the notes saying that those who completed the tanks with four missions sets with honors, would receive the fifth female crew members...
  10. Yes, ^^ Completing LT 15.1 would free up 4 orders (and if done with honors give you 5) Completing SPG 15.3 would free up 4 orders (and if done with honors give you 5) That would give you the 16 total to use to unlock the 260... So it's likely worth your time to complete LT 15.1 and SPG 15.3 with honors... instead of grinding the three remaining 260 mission sets...
  11. It looks like the changes also mean the female crew is now assigned to the "skipped or completed" mission set and not just the completed mission set. Thus why you will get female crew at patch drop if you have only done the 4 sets (and have orders allocated to the 5th) ...
  12. Yes, if you complete one 260 mission with Honors, you will have 16 Orders enough to cover off the rest of the 260 mission sets!
  13. If I read correctly, Stug IV - 4 orders available (assuming you did 4 sets with honors and maybe 5 if you also did SPG with Honors) HTC - 0 orders available ( 4 orders locked in fifth mission set) T55a - 0 orders available (4 orders locked in fifth mission set) 260 - 2 orders available (assuming heavy and med are done with honors) So you have 6 (maybe 7) orders to play with... so you can skip the 260 SPG mission set by using 4 orders and further use 2 (or 3) to skip individual RNG missions on your way to completing the last two 260 mission sets (honors not required) If you finish one more 260 mission set with honors you may have gathered up 8 orders so you can skip 2 sets of 260 missions...
  14. It's likely more exclusive than they wanted it to be considering the skill level of the player base... and I don't see the profit angle either other than grinding to tank comps and spamming games for the more rng related missions. Think of it as 20 "orders" maximum (Four tanks X Five Mission sets). e.g. HT 12.3 (Skipped) with use of an "order" At some point in the future HT 12.3 Complete with Honors - Get Mission completion goodies and the "order" previously used is retrieved for reuse on some other mission/mission set Currently, you have to complete all five sets for the reward tank, hence the four extra "commendations" for completing four sets with honors (that change to orders) are locked into skipping LT15.3. After patch drop the four new "orders" will still be locked there but the additional rewards (crew) for completing the Personal reward mission set will be received (a minor change). However, if in the future LT15.3 primary was completed those four "orders" used to skip that mission set will be retrieved to use on some other mission/mission set and if LT 15.3 is completed with honors you get the additional fifth order... So you do not have to play whatever class that gives you trouble but the flexibility/rewards for doing so are now significant... especially if you want to get over hurdles or fast track reward tank acquisition further down the road.
  15. Think of it as 20 "orders" maximum (Four tanks X Five Mission sets) . If you use "orders" to skip missions/mission sets (like only doing 4 mission sets and using 4 orders to skip fifth set) and then go back and do/redo the mission set, then you "retrieve" those "orders" to be able to "reuse" them by skipping a different mission/mission set.
