Special task not working after buying it from warbond shop.
So yeah, I bought a special task after finishing the one I had from like 2 days ago and then I kept spending SL but for some reason it just won't activate, I can see it on the "Special Tasks" section but not on the main screen where you can also can see the normal daily tasks. This issue is driving me nuts honestly.

Sounds to me like the special task that you chose is for another mode than the lineup that you have selected.

For example if you choose a special task for Air Realistic but then select an Air Arcade lineup or a Ground Realistic lineup then it will not show you the special task since it cannot be completed with the lineup that you currently have selected.

Check what your special task says under "Available in modes: X".

Then check if the lineup that you are playing has the exact same mode selected because they probably do not match. So either change your lineup, change the mode that you are playing with your lineup (e.g. Air Arcade -> Air Realistic) OR change the special task to the mode that you are playing.

I'm playing Ground RB and the special task is for that mode.

Odd, then I have no clue why it is not showing up for you. Your lineup does have at least one rank III vehicle as well I assume?

Correct.

I switched to Arcade Battles and weirdly enough the special task shows up but then I switched back to RB and it's the same issue.

Well, it means that you selected Arcade task, not Realistic Battles one.

No, I was actually on RB mode when I bought the special task but it will only appear if I'm on Arcade mode and as soon as I switch to RB it just won't appear.

It doesn't really matter what mode your are on when you buy a special task because when you buy the special task a window opens up that shows you 6 tasks I believe to choose from for each of the individual 6 game modes.

1 Task for Air Realistic
1 Task for Air Arcade
1 Task for Ground Realistic
1 Task for Ground Arcade
1 Task for Naval Realistic
1 Task for Naval Arcade

Depending on which task you choose now you are stuck with having to finish that task in the respective mode. You probably selected the task for Ground AB. If you want to play Ground RB then you need to select the task for Ground RB. If you don't like the task then you need to reroll it afterwards for SL and then select the one for Ground RB again.

Screenshots would probably help solve this. Make a screenshot of the Special Task. It most likely says "Available in modes: Ground AB".

Edit: To clarify. The window that pops up when you buy a special task also shows up when you reroll it for SL. So if you reroll it for SL now then the same window should show up and then carefully choose the task that is suited for Ground RB.

So it seems like it only says that it's available in Arcade Battles but the only thing I've been playing is RB, usually all the special tasks I buy are specifically for RB.
