For the Record: Straight Outta Supertest: Maps, Female Crews, IM’s
Hello everyone, a fresh batch of info from the supertest. Evilly mentioned that there will be a “crew surprise” connected to the IM’s. Well, the surprise is… female crewmembers. Whenever you recieve one token for completing 15 missions (you need 4 tokens for every tank out of 5), you get one for free, along with enough crew XP for one perk Regarding the individual mission mechanics: it seems that every mission has a main objective and secondary objective. If you complete secondary objective as well as the main one, the rewards get bigger. Here are two examples of first two StuG IV missions (easiest), since those two seem to be ready. Remember how Evilly said that each “chain” of 15 missions is tied to a specific vehicle class? First mission for LT is to be in top 10 in XP, the reward is 50k credits. But if you manage to survive as well, you get extra 25k. Second mission is for HT and it is to destroy 1 enemy tank, the reward is 50k credits. But if you manage to deal more than 1000 damage, you get extra 25k cradits. Missions also now have tips, that should help players deal with them, such as (actual example from those two above): “Try to avoid attacking enemies frontally. Flank them or get behind them. You also should take a note of where your enemy is aiming at.” and “Your gun is powerful, but it still doesn’t mean you can penetrate enemies everywhere. Learn to find weak points.” In case you are interested in the most difficult missions, these are the final missions you need to fulfill to get the ultimate prize, Object 260. The reward for these missions each is 1 Object 260 token (you need 4 out of 5), BUT the reward for secondary objective is an additional token, which means that if you complete both primary and secondary objective, you get two tokens per missions, so theoretically, in order to get Object 260, all you have to do is complete two of these missions (but you have to complete secondary objectives as well as primary). It is not known whether you can complete the primary and secondary tasks independently (for example completing primary objective in one battle and secondary in another). Additionally, for both primary and secondary objectives, you get one “female crewmember” with enough XP for one perk and completing secondary objective gives you 500k credit bonus - LT: deal 8000 spotting damage (secondary: get 5 spotting kills) - HT: accumulate 20000 damage – either dealt yourself, or blocked by your armor, they add up (secondary: survive and win) - MT: destroy 3+ enemy TD’s, that are at least one tier higher than you (secondary: survive, win and deal 3k+ damage) - TD: deal 10000+ damage (secondary: destroy 5+ enemy tanks) - Arty: be on first place in XP and damage dealt (secondary: survive) Okay, so much for IM’s, now the maps: Lost City (this seems to be a symmetric, e-sports special map), it was developed for quite a while. Mittengard aka “The Pit” is a lowtier map apparently, it’s quite small. It’s possible it will join the pool of tier 1,2,3 maps Winter Ruinberg is here to replace Ruinberg on Fire. The basic complaint about RoF is that it was just too dark.
