Individual Missions: A How-To Guide

You just need to be spotting them at the moment someone kills them. However, the guy that kills them mustn't see them himself (and you can't be sure if that true, unless arty is the one that killed the enemy). Also, I'm not sure if you need to be the only one spotting for the kill...

Jesus that's annoying. I had a ton of monster spotting games when I was sure to have the kill spot for 6+ tanks yet no mission...

Welcome to the mission levels that require an obscene amount of luck to finish.  I'm on MT-7.3: kill 3 spg's.  Looking at my record, I've gotten the Pascucci's Medal a mere 11 times - mostly in light tanks.  On average, I get this once every 1675 battles!  This is going to take a really, really long time to do.  :cri:

Platoon with 2 SPGs and you'll increase your chances manifold. I've helped a lot of folks get this mission. Use a T37 Cromwell or T-34-85.

T37 is not a med, SPG platoon is a good idea since I am also at that mission and it pissess me off.

Woops, I read LT not MT. T-34-85 or Cromwell, then. I actually got that mission in a 907 in a no-arty platoon, but that was on a special arty weekend. It's much harder, though, in higher tiers as by the time you break through to arty it's usually a steamroll and multiple tanks dive for arty. Whereas in low tiers, you have a better chance of slipping through, and having your toon-mates in arty lowers the chance of their arty being CB'd as you light all three.

Will do. Still the LT i mentioned is a pain. MT i will do as you say since it's a pita trying to do in my CDC

Asking people to play arty is good way to lose friends.

Eh, not really. I've run arty for friends, and others have run arty with me.

It's masochism. Jesus I cant stress how much playing arty bores me. It hurts.

Wrote this query for LT-15.3 and 15.4 of my VBAddict export data for another thread, didn't want it to go to waste.

I like the WZ-132.

Edit: And here's HT-15.4. There are 73 results that satisfy the primary requirement, so I won't post them all, just these at the top. You can see my actual HT-15.4 match at the very tippy-top.

How does this VBAddict query work? Does VBAddict keep track of all of your games, or did you spend a lot of time collecting them as replays or whatever? I'd love to go and write some of my own code to sort a bunch of my games.

If you've been using the ADU tool that VBAddict provides it uploads data for each match (30-40 columns worth). You can export this data to a .CSV, which I imported into a MySQL DB because that's apparently what I do for fun.

You may be able to cut some steps out if you can capture the data from the ADU or even straight from the game itself as the ADU does, but I confess that I don't have the programming know-how to do that.

Ah, so you DO have to continuously record matches. You've been collecting for a while then it seems? I guess I better start today if I want to mess around with my data :P Thanks!

Aye. I've got 15,631 records dating back to 2013-06-16 03:53:49 (UTC, I think). That includes tournaments, training rooms, CW, etc. For most stuff I filter for pub matches, of which I've 13,914 records. I haven't updated it in a while, but I haven't played much since...November-ish, so that's not such a big deal.

Wow, that worked!  All I had to do was whine about a mission and the next day, it's done.  :)   Got lucky to get a 3 arty match on Sand River while I was in the Crommie B.  Played like a scout and raided them.  Done and done.

For HT-15 purposes, should I just sum the damage_dealt and damage_potential_received fields and leave out damage_received? In other words, is damage_received included in damage_potential_received?

You know...I'm not sure. It would seem redundant to have them rolled together, but this is Wargaming. I don't have any convenient records laying around to verify, It may be worthwhile to play a match, write down the scorecard values, then check later.

I'll test it tonight and report back. 

If my hunch is correct, then I've only had one game qualify for HT-15.4 while running the ADU. It was a VKB game on Cliffs that completed HT-15.3. 

I've had the Maus unlocked for a while. Is it significantly better than the VKB or E100 for HT-15? I have know other reason to blow 6m credits on the thing. 

I'm getting really close all of a sudden. TD-15 and HT-15 are unlocked. I only have a few more clicker missions left that just require me to actually play arty. However, it doesn't look like I'll ever get the double fire mission done to unlock MT-15. 

TD-15 is a problem for me. I only have the T110E3 and the WT100, but I've never broken 7k damage in those. I bought a Jagdtiger last night. Maybe I'll get lucky in the Jag100 when I get to it?

The problem with the maus for HT15 in my experience is that people don't really let you angle the tank to use the armor to bounce damage. After a shot or two they switch to HE or go somewhere else :/ I actually feel like the IS series is better, since both the -4 and -7 have troll armor, good guns, and the mobility to actually get into the fight.

 

I've gotten close in the Jag100 for TD15, but I haven't managed to get it yet. Waffle 100 has also gotten me close...

I finally managed to ram-kill a higher tier tank in my heavies for the 260, took me forever. Rammeda british tier 9 arti in my FCM, when he was camping at the base of the hill in Himmelsdorf and I just rushed down there, leaving the won fight on the hill early. Put one shot of damage in him and tracked him for the juicy ram kill. Left lots of damage on the hill and risked my pubby teammates screwing up and throwing the game.

Did the 4k dmg unspotted as well this week, in a camping fiesta on Malinovka that I played disgustingly passive with my Jagdtiger. Almost threw the game staying at range at all cost.

I have a deep hatred for the missions that actually force you do worsen your quality of play.

Bonus....Maus will go on track in April so you could buy it on sale.

I've found that HT-15 conditions are usually met when you are facing pubbies that aren't bright enough to try something different once they bounce you a few times.

I suck horribly in the IS-7. I don't think it's a bad tank, but I can't seem to hit the broadside of a barn with that gun. I'd love to have an IS-7 with IS-8 gun handling. Hence, I'm still working on these missions. ;)
