it’s weekend and with it the usual dose of Wargaming fail. This time however, it’s not that bad, it comes only in the form of incomprehensibility (yes, I had to look up this word in a dictionary). Basically, there are two issues.
First the “Let the Games begin” event, where you get extra crew XP. Several people wrote me about a percieved fail, where they got the three bonuses at once and all were listed as “1,1 crew XP coefficient” – guys, these bonuses aren’t multiplicative, they are additive. The mission works correctly, if you get three times 1,1 crew XP bonus, the result is 1,3 bonus. The reson for this unintuitive solution is probably the fact that for some (probably technical) reason, Wargaming techs can’t program a mission, whose criteria would exclude the other missions, that have the same criteria but in lesser amount.
Second is a bit more serious. Basically, the Monthly Mission 5 (why can’t they at least name them? Confusion FTW) is sort of bugged. To quote Brynd (WG EU):
Unfortunately there is an issue with Monthly Mission 5, in which when you complete it, it appears to reset and show as uncompleted. We’re informed this is a display issue only: the mission is still working and the result will still count for helping to complete Monthly Mission 6.
Well, that’s it – you won’t lose your mission progress, no worries. It works.
