 although there is no clan wars running at the moment there are the new ranked battles. Nonetheless will WG run a marathon this summer? 

 

If so will the reward be a new vehicle? There are several in the game client or will it be one of the older models?

 Will it be possible to buy tokens in the shop?

 What tier will it be if there is a summer Marathon?

 Will there be a choice of reward tank?

 Has anyone heard anything about a summer Marathon event for 2017?

When will it start if there is a summer Marathon?

Seems like the Tiger 217 will be up for a marathon soon.

I still remember the September marathon with Type 62/KV-220 rewarded for having no life whatsoever.... the horror.

​Hmmm. Depends on what the reward is and whether the effort put into the grind is worth it.

 

Dicker Max one was fairly reasonable - not too grindy if I remember so for a T6 HT like the Tiger it may be similar.

 

If it's a T8 premium of some type (e.g. like the T-44-100) expect it to be a full-on grindfest. I didn't bother with the T44 because:

 

a) I've already got a T44 and hate it

b) I didn't want to spend a long time grinding for a tank which I hate - albeit with some metal panels stuck on the sides...

Going by a RU announcement for summer events. Most seems to think it's the Tiger 217. Since the Marathon icon silhouette was the Tiger. 

 

Tho the RU announcement "leak" did not say what tank it was for. Just that there is one planned for the summer.

I will take that if is a Tiger. I need a german heavy tank premium  for crews of: Tiger, Tiger 2, Maus, E100 and Pz VII . I have Vk 7201, but you can't really play at tier 10 a tank with shitty crew... especially, without 6th sense.

There will be a t34-85m 18 day marathon on NA starting in ~2 weeks. If one were to assume that all the servers will at least do something similar (as in, all servers t6 tank) then i suppose the tiger is a possibility.

Yeah, Tiger 217 is likely a marathon reward, it has been hinted on multiple ocassions on multiple sources.

Oh, that'd be nice to get. Maybe I'll train another german crew and get some tank that has a name resembling some small squeky rodent... ;)

It always seems like it's cheaper to just buy the tank rather than use all those repair kits, consumables, and premium ammo in grinding for it.
