"If you can't beat them ... give them all a free tier 6 prem tenk" :) 

 

Seriously, I do not understand why it has been made so pathetically easy. 

Sure, we all get premium tank gifts at Christmas, but that is low tier garbage. 

This tier 6 good prem tank giveaway just feels so weird.

Giving away because they have given up?

T-34-85 is so fun tank to play so that people stop there instead of climbing the tree -> No money for WG

Considering there was 6 topics a day on the last marathons on how "hard" it was. Even on the lower tiers like the KV-220, Type 62, Tog or even the D-Max. Heck, we even had people complaining when they gave the M22 Locust away for free here like 2 years ago or so. So I can't say I'm surprised that they did one easy finally. But I am surprised on what tank they used for making it easy.

Make it challenging and people cry.  Make it easy and people cry.  I am actually starting to feel sorry for WG.

Gotta keep the 12 year old kids happy, their parents wont let them buy a premium tank.

 

I won't play mine for some time until the fad goes away

Surely there is a middle way.

Not very easy, not very hard.

Why are WG jumping from on extreme to another?

This isnt neccereraly bad. I personaly want to have a easy to get tank in this game once atleast. I didnt paly the game back in the day they gave away t34s i didnt know about the t25 pilot. And to be fair alot of games do this albeit not this easy. Another thing is that i thinki i deserve we all deserve a easy tank like thsi. Most of us payed and palyed no mather what and hey if wargaming thinks we desereve this easy tank more poer to them :D

It's good business. Might get some old timers to start again, might get some f2p guys get into premium tanks.

Tbh, it's quite clever. Or could be.

It's not meant to be challenging. It's meant to get people to log on (almost) every day to keep them interested in the game. Some of the guys who would have otherwise taken a month long break, might not return.

Think about that for a moment. When has WG ever shown subtlety? If a tank is slightly overperforming and they decide to address it, they nerf it into the ground. If a tank is kind of weak compared to its peers and they decide to address it, they buff it to be superior to almost everything in its class. They approach every problem with a sledge hammer and have no idea how to use a scalpel.

 

They also came out and said they wanted to make this marathon something that could easily be done in a few games per day because it's summer and a lot of people probably don't want to spend much time playing pc games.

I'm quite glad the missions are so easy 'cause I have very little time to actually play WoT during this summer...

I felt the T25 pilot missions were just right in difficulty.

This marathon is just plain ridiculously easy.

Being summer, lot of work and travel, holidays... I am pretty happy it is not a grind. :honoring:

 

Who cares if bots/tomatoes get it, is a squishy target, better than to shoot O-I. :coin:

How did the pilot marathon differ from t44-100 marathon?

150k dmg & 150 kills with every faction.

That sure was a grind but was probably optimal to do with tier V vehicle (for my skill 1k dmg per 1 kill)

I don't want bot accounts getting good premium tanks like this for free. It only reduces the quality of subsequent battles with their participation.

Does not matter easy or not easy. Mission is mission and you have to do that. Some time ago was on the NA server nice missions. You got different staff, prem days and etc, for everyday login and nothing had to be done. After 30 days login you get SU-100Y. It was easy.

It's a gateway drug.

Well I am on holiday and will miss out. Look forward to seeing swarms of them when I get back. The SU85B I think, some shiny medal on offer for killing 2 MTs 2 tiers higher as I recall...

 

Only downside is I was thinking of getting the T5 T34 again and the crew would have been useful.
