Blackroan's Tips for PM Second Campaign

Recommended Posts

First tip, get the "arty missions" done asap. ATM, you can complete them if you break them into 2 parts:

Examples:

Alliance-2 Strike Out Of The Blue:  I took my T92 and CGC and got my 30 stuns, then flipped to my CromB and Jumbo to get my 5 top 3 finished. Took me 12 games total to complete that mission.

Coalition-2 Knock The Stuffing Out Of Them: I took the Foch 155 full HE load out and got my 40 modules in 5 games, switched to the B-C 155 58 and focused on getting 1 "double stun" a game and did it 10 games.

Anyway, you get the idea, do exactly what you need to do with the arty, then flip to a more suitable tank for the other part. I recommend you do them asap before they change them so you can only do them in arty. These missions are a lot less RNG then the last ones and much more focused and "grindy" if you think outside the box.

More tips to come.

ATM 8 missions done, all but one having to do with "stuns"

I only ever went up the American line for arty. Being restricted to a class is one thing... Being restricted by nation and class is another. What a pain in the bum. I feel no need or want to grind out 3 more arty lines to at least tier VI atm. Maybe eventually, but I'm not a fan of how they changed this set to being nation specific.

On a side note, the stuns are only related to the honors portion as far as I understand. So completing the mission is still possible without arty @Juggernaut41, you just won't finish it with honors.

There are a couple that you have to use arty.  Alliance-2 is one of them.

Black - I like the Foch 155 full HE loadout.  I'm on that mission and have done 2 of the secondaries with the 155 58. but only 10 on the primary.

It took me longer than 5 battles, but the Foch 155 with full HE was a trip to play.  Some shots will fizzle when they are near misses or the enemy has a spall liner.  However you do have the hilarious 1000+ damage shots that make it all worth it.  Too bad they don't have messaging from the enemy team anymore.  Mission complete.

Based on your suggestion, I am working on the other missions that have stun as a secondary to get them out of the way just in case they decide to change the requirements.  I've got no German or Russian arty, and don't feel like purchasing them again.  53/55, 155 58, and the Bert are all I have.

Excalibur received last night. The difficulty level between those missions and the next set is significant.  Here are a couple of the games for the "15's" missions:
