Do you have what it takes to complete this special mission and reach for the grand prize?

Full news text

 

UPDATE 01/09: 

 

We have been following marathon discussion threads and we appreciate your constructive opinions and suggestions. Based on community feedback we have decided to extend the T-44-100 Marathon by 6 days.

 

It is very important for us that you see the marathon as an event worth participating in, and the T-44-100 as a reward worth pursuing, as well as also worth your time and dedication. Even though we aimed at keeping the challenge at a similar level compared to previous marathons, many of you considered it more demanding than past editions. We don’t want that negative perception to eclipse the fun part of the event, which is completing the challenge and reaping the profits!

 

After receiving your feedback, we considered different ways to adjust the missions, but moving the end date eventually turned out to be the most straightforward solution. It also gives you additional flexibility, as you now have more days to choose from in case you are not able to play every day. The total duration of the event changed from 32 to 38 days – that’s almost 20% longer than initially planned, which gives you the extra time you need to take care of the 8th nation. With an additional 6 days available, the average daily amount of damage and kills to score is now the same as in last year’s WZ-111 marathon.

 

The portal announcement will be updated with a new end date later this week.

 

Thank you very much once again for helping us making World of Tanks more enjoyable!

Why would you release a marathon at the END of summer? 

Why didn't you release it in June? *facepalm*

Honestly, WG EU you are so bad it's embarrassing

Because they want you to pay. How else would they set 1200 kills + 1.2M damage?

​I would have if you'd released it like 2 months ago like the other freaking servers.

Consider this:

 

if you average 1000 damage and 1 kill - this mission takes 1200 games. With avg game duration 7 min thats 140 hours.

 

with my countries avg wage that makes 2800€ gross.

 

If you really want the tank. just buy the overpriced token bundle :-)

You should definitely have decreased the requirements as a nation has been added since the last marathon. I think 100k dmg + 100 kills would be acceptable. The way it is right now, even the most dedicated players will not be able to get these mission. 

 

This is not a marathon for a tank, this is a marathon for a discount. I won't try for the tank and I won't buy the tank. If the requirements were lower, I would do 6 nations and buy Japan + Czechoslovakia, but you don't want my money anyway.

Same as the regular T-44.. surely that doesn't surprise you.

And the T-54 mod 1. And better than some other regular tanks.

LOL, stupid WG. No other words.

 

I guess last year too many people got their WZ-111.

+1 more nation and 150k damage/150 kills versus 135k/135 kills last year per nation.

 

I guess if there still be people making it, next year we see 200 and Swedes.

:D Good joke.

 

This is obviously not intended to be a free tank for anyone and just another "trick" to get money out of the players.

Its great and thank you but now you have me worried and if I am right a pile of negative comments are heading your way and deservedly so.

 

The 100 years of tanks we have been playing, you implied that there was an end prize, as in do all 4 weeks and there will be something special at the end.

Something juicy coming in September, you said.

Now Im thinking the Somthing Juicy is this tank and it has absolutely nothing to do with 100 years of tanks event.

 

If so then all the spotting kills damage etc we did for weeks is for some medals and repair kits and thats it.

I really really hope im wrong about this.

 

Trouble is if im right there will be loads of I told you so posts and complaints about it.

If However there is some other mission in September that means 2 happening at the same time and we possibly have to choose which one to do.

Am I the only one who read "Do you hate what it takes to complete this special..." But really requirements should been less than this with extra nation.

:amazed: wow a marathon! Finally a pleasant surprise!

 

But the missions... yeah, like OberstThrawn said: before we got the Czech tanks we had to do 135k/135 kills per nation for the WZ 111. I hope you reconsider this.

WG you must be joking :

"Note: All unused tokens purchased from the Premium Shop will be converted to Gold after the event is over. Tokens earned from the event will not be converted into Gold. Purchased tokens are not refundable."

At least give players who earn tokens and are unable to use them 500 gold or something .... Otherwise it is just a slap in the face for players grinding during the event!

Yes. WG really trying to milk the cash cow. My maths says 1.2m dmg and 1200 kills over 32 days = 37.5k dmg and 37.5 kills per day. For some nations that's doable for me (Skoda t50, Grille 15, bat) but not for all. I guess its best to grind each nation individually and then on the 19 October, when the event ends, seeing how many tokens I'd have to buy to get the tank and then deciding whether its worth it (after reading reviews from trusted CC's and others).

 

Edit: tanks gg says t44100 is nearly identical to t44 apart from 6mm spaced armour (useful but not amazing) and slight speed differences (less hp, better ground resistances). As t44 is uncompetitive vs Mutz and KR, why would you bother with the marathon? Maybye they plan to buff after the marathon when they sell it in the shop (see FV4202).
