We All Know Wargarming , With Their Marathon , And Every Single Marathon Gives You A Chance To Get A Unique Tank For Your Collection :medal:

, But Is It Worth It?

Well Today , I Decided That I Will Not Grind , And Just Buy 10 Tokens (2x 5 Tokens) Which Costed Me 88HRK (Around 12 Euros)

First Thing That's Really Great Is That , The Leftover Unused Tokens , Will Be Turned Into Gold , To Be More Specific , 290 Gold For 1 Token

And That's Great Because You Can Buy Camo And Emblem :)

The Second Thing Is That , The Crew is Already On 100% And Can Train Skills Right Away! 

Now The Vehicle

The T-34-85M Is Somewhat A T-34-85M With Better Armor , And...Well....A Very Angled Rear :teethhappy:  With Lower Speed , But Not Too Low

The Armor Is Decent , 75mm Front / 45mm Side / 45mm Rear , But If You Angle It , It Just Bounces Shells , Like A Boss

Now , The Turret Traverse Speed Is 47.98 Deg/s , Which Is Pretty Good , But The Armor 90mm Front / 75mm Side / 52mm Rear Is Kinda Bad , But Not Totally

On The T-34-85M , We Have The 85mm ZiS S-53 With 144mm Penetration Which Could Be Better And Is Not So Great , And A Damage Of 180 , Which Is Fair Enough

Its Reload Time Is 4.99 Sec , Which Is Fair Enough For The Damage You Have

The DPM Is 2,077 Which Is Not The Greatest

But The Most Dissapointing Part Is The Gun Depression/Elevation Which Is -7/25 , And Feels Like It Doesn't Have That -7 Depression.....

The Aiming Time Is 2.1 But I'd Prefer The 1.9 But It Might Be OP Then :P

The View Range Is Not The Best At 365 But Good Enough

Now The Matchmaking Part

As Far As I Know , It Goes Up To Tier 8!

Now It Might Be Hard To Master , But If You Know What You're Doing , Its A Money Maker For Sure...

You Need To Watch Out For The SPG , Because They Can Take Away Half Of Your Hitpoints...

Now , Is This Tank Worth It?

Not For Everyone , For People Like Me Who Like To Camp Mostly And Snipe , Sure , Buy It Right Away , But If You Want Agressive Gameplay , I'd Rather Buy The Type 62 Which I Also Have So , If Ya'll Want , I Can Make A Review About It...

Sorry Ya'll For Bad English ;)

(P.S Im Sorry For Not Covering The Crew , Skills And Equipment , I Was In A Hurry :B)

I Wish You Luck For The Marathon And Good Luck On The Battlefields! :izmena:

Why on earth you  would go through to capitalise 1st letter in every single word? Makes it unreadable or at least for me.

This is a Bit like 17th and 18th Century English when there was a Fad to capitalize all Nouns.

 

https://english.stackexchange.com/questions/10522/capitalisation-of-nouns-in-english-in-the-17th-and-18th-centuries

 

As to the question itself, ask if its worth your time to play WoT anywhere between one to 5 battles or so daily on tier IV or above, because that's roughly what is going to be needed.

TL;DR:

For the effort it takes to do the missions, it is totally worth the investment.

I decided not to grind either, bought 50 tokens today but then sold them all on the tokens black market because I felt bored, so now I am grinding again.

 fixed: For the effort it takes to do the missions, you are stupid to pay anything for the tokens.

I was talking about the energy/time investment of playing maybe half a dozen matches per day.

What do you mean "Is the marathon worth it", this shouldn't be even called a marathon? Day 7 and literally the toughest mission was play 5 games on Day 1? You don't even have to try to complete them, like play 1 battle and it's mission completed....you paid 12 euros for a 100% crew. Congrats, nice money management

5-20 min of playing each day for a free Tank. I don't see how that's a bad thing?

If you find that too much I See no reason to play the game..

No, I find that TOO LITTLE.

I would easily get this tank even if I

did not play a single match or a single minute,

I would get it just by running a bot script.

And many will do just that.

And that is wrong.

Reason is to buy tokens.

Of course it's worth it with the missions being as easy as they are.

Before this, I was thinking about not get involved in this marathon cause the missions are really really difficult and they require hours to complete every day. But now, after reading this post I decide it worth the effort. Thx OP for convincing me to get a free tier 6 premium tank!

It doesn't take half a dozen, apart from the "play 5 games" one I've done all in 3 matches or less. I'm perfectly happy to spend less than 20 minutes of my day playing some tanks and keep the 15 bucks to spend on important stuff, like beer.

I intended to get this tank by paying money. This is because I don't have the time or the will to log on to tanks everyday but I do have a spare £12.
