Hello everyone, just to let you know, there have been a few guys contacting me about an alleged fail, since the double XP mission (that was promised yesterday) doesn’t exist in the mission list. I’d just like to let you know that the double XP works just fine. Only it’s not done via a mission. You see, in order to make the double XP count towards the IS-6 goal, someone would create a special type of mission and probably override a whole lot of the previous rules otherwise. So, in order to avoid all the hassle, Wargaming inveted a rather elegant solution: first battle double XP’s did count towards the IS-6 goal even before, so they simply blocked their resetting. Basically, the game now considers EVERY won battle to be the first victory of the day. That’s why there is no new mission, that’s why they had to cancel the x5 victory bonus and that’s why it counts only towards victories. If they wanted to make EVERY battle to be double XP (even losses) and to make it count towards the IS-6 goal, a fair bit of programming would have to be involved. This way, it doesn’t have to be.
