    The vehicle kill assist mission is a bit annoying ...

    Realize that it's harder to get vehicle kill assists than it is to just rack up outright kills. Note that they either have much higher damages per shot or have much higher sustained damage over time compared to like any other weapon in the game. Not killing my opponent is more difficult than tagging him with a single shot of anything and waiting for some infantry dude to finish the job.

    Triathlon is supposed to be hard though? If you want that bonus ISK and SP do it, if not - don't. There is always going to be people complaining no matter what though so I guess I am beating a dead horse here...

    The difference is in the relative difficulty of that mission compared to everything else listed as part of the event. The vehicle kill assist mission has always been an outlier in an environment in which ...

    1. The game doesn't count kills made by other players in the same vehicle as "Vehicle Kill Assists" unless you've also physically damaged the opponent in same way. ie. a Dropship pilot gets "Vehicle Kill Assists" when his gunners make a kill but this doesn't contribute to the tally for the specific vehicle kill assist mission because said pilot didn't do any damage to the opponent, his gunner did. The same applies to LAVs and Tanks.

    2. The difficulty of getting specifically a kill assist with a weapon that's notably more powerful than most anything the infantry side can throw out. I really can't stress this point enough, the mission doesn't tally kills and it doesn't tally kills made by gunners in the same vehicle unless said person also contributed to the damage on the target. Knowing this you consider that small railguns can 1 hit most scouts and poorly fitted medium suits and the splash from Small Missiles are capable of the same and ... yeah. It's a super annoying mission.

    3. The other missions laid out explicitly reward the skill of the player, the better you are, the more kills you'll get, the more battles you'll win. In order for a vehicular pilot to focus entirely on "kill assists" knowing the above, they have to actively play worse.

    Damn son, you take this game way too seriously. It is one mission, why not simply skip doing it then if it is too much of a challenge? :O

    I can easily see myself doing it with my pals in a tank though. Happy to get extra ISK for it.

    Dear GOD please, no, not vehicle kill assists. Here's my write up on why vehicle kill assists are terrible mission

    Kills while manning a turret - sure. Vehicle kill assists? **** no.

    This event needs better rewards for how tough it is; its just like the 5 million Clone Challenge where the rewards weren't good enough. Give ISK rewards for all missions or such.

    LOL 35 kill assists in a vehicle every day for a week, I'm not even going to try.
    Getting kill assist in a vehicle is hard to do, the assist we get from others inside don't count and if I shoot someone it's more likely I get a kill then an assist.

    Also you are asking me to do something I'm not trained to do and have no interest in.
    Also tankers DON'T need my help to kill stuff, they do fine without me.

    I will however get my AV gear ready for battle, my quess is that vehicles will be full of players. BOOOM kill kill kill +50 +50 +50 😘

    For real. Dudes act like it's hard to just do drive-bys with a blaster LAV or something. It's not like they're not free, I mean, there are BPO LAVs everywhere. Just pop off a few rounds and ditch.

    The pilots you know couldn't win a 1v1 with a unmanned installation. Also kinda sad that it takes 11 people to carry you in fac war. The struggle vs. militia nubs is real yo. Pirate

    35 Vehicle kill assists, 150 Kills, win 10 battles, for a measly 85k SP? HELLZ NAW

    Maybe if you double the SP I would bother doing them... this way, nah.

    I'll just complete the other 5 missions and grab the gold.
