I was supposed to get my Benham today but for some reason I didn't find the 100 fuel token mission and I only found coal daily missions. What happened?!!! :Smile_unsure:

I could get around that. The problem for me was the Savage battle part.

Well, I need to preserve my last two brain cells. It will be available through other means lately... Maybe!

Not bad tbh. I know it's money, but that T9 is worth it.

I just submitted a ticket, not going to post details as it's private and I don't have permission but got the same response as above from the coast-guards that its server tick related and the only real way forward is to spend money (0% chance of that happening for me right now). I've escalated to technical support.

 

The main reason this is frustrating is because the Daily Missions, (you know the things to complete to do the series mission) have the expiry date of the 22nd. This means that there are missions with identical expiry dates that actually expire on different days.

 

Misleading is the word I'd use, will see if Tech support are able to help. Feeling pretty disappointed/disgusted at the moment. Going to do todays Daily mission just in case it logs and that matters but probably going to give Wows a break after. This bait and switch has definitely muted my interest in playing at the moment.

I did it and got no fuel tokens from it. Don't waste your time. The daily mission rally is over.

Expiration date has always been like that. If you look at todays daily missions, it says 23.07. since you can still complete them a few hours after 00:00

Anyway, the best way to check would have been, to just read what the description said in the news: 48 out of 50. If today would have been included, it would ve 52.

It's really annoying because we're conditioned to expect deadlines to expire at midnight, and not 5 a.m. local time.

 

I also found it really weird because I got the 48 and never missed a day, but didn't have a day to spare? It seems like I was a day behind at the beginning based on when the update went live, but can't really remember. Maybe I slacked off that first day.

Maybe second worse. So far nothing could beat Nachi mission. The Great Naval Battles were close too. But it is very badly designed.

No, todays daily missions say 22nd, thats my point. That picture was taken 10 minutes before the post. I can take another current one if you want.

Doesn't mean it's right. I'm a new player as of a few months ago and it makes no sense to me. Does everyone have to go through the confusion or something, is it a rite of passage? Why don't they replace it with a countdown timer or put an expiry time on there or at least sync it so that everything is the same.

 

That way when I looked at the series expiry and my daily mission expiry my calculations would have (accurately) shown me falling short instead of being able to make it.

 

 

 

Edit: Looking at the Battle numbers of some of the other posters it would appear this confusion does not just affect new players and is annoying everyone across the spectrum of players.

The very purpose of events like this is to pray upon player mistakes, so they would have to spend on the game if they are determined to get the reward.

I just worked 1 extra shift at work and bought the containers. I ain’t got time to grind my enjoyment away. 

 

WG need to have a look at how demanding grinds for single ships are.

Obviously they took a look at them and determined 100% frequency is of "just right" for a free boat:cap_tea:

It was a very tight time limit I just got her last night, and was too tired to even bother playing her but wow to get her for free that was a hell of a grind.

True, from their perspective having people just failing to meet the target is a good thing. However, in my view there's a line between "player mistake" and "being mislead", one leads to purchases to make up the shortfall, the other leads to confusion and anger.

A tough to meet target which for a free to play game I'm all ok with that, go nuts! The other is a bait and switch with players putting hours in to meet a goal only to have that snatched away at the last minute and thats what I'm unhappy with. As I said if the expiry dates were consistent my calculations 3 weeks ago would have been accurate and I'd not have bothered even trying.

 

In any case I'm going to choose to believe this is an oversight or bug rather than deliberately made to mislead. Compared to other F2P games wargaming is pretty decent, compensation for server outages, rental ships for ranked battles. Mission chains and free premium stuff here and there. Some $60 games don't even do that kinda stuff.

 

So I'll give them benefit of the doubt but they still need to fix their stuff so it's consistent, ideally so it's clear to the average user such as myself who doesn't read every news article and forum post for the server reset times and just plays the game based off the port screen mission board.

 

 

In terms of grinding - I have enjoyed playing, not been a grind for me. I just wouldn't have played religiously for weeks if the reward hadn't been a free T9 prem destroyer. Sure I could spend money and work an hour or two extra but right now the last thing I want to do is give money to wargaming especially with the sour taste in my mouth.
