That's a lot of credits for a tier 6 tank! I'd rather get that than the actual tank lol.

I guess you can always sell that tank after you get it, shouldn't that give you the credits... :P

You'd get half of that, obviously.

It says I get 1.5M credits, but I don't have the T34-85M. WTF is up with this [edited]game? Can't these scumbags get anything right?

Then do the sensible thing, raise a ticket with support, rather than rage on the forum. You never know, it could just be a simple mistake.

Not unlucky.  Feckless.  You had to do 13 missions and they were all easy.

Here's what's going to happen:

 

As someone who took out their credit/debit card to pay for what was an exclusive item, which was no doubt bundled with other items that you neither needed or wanted in order to jack the price up, you're going to be screwed.

Not really....it's still going to be an exclusive tank.  You will still have it in your garage but thanks to the generosity of WG, some other players (who might not normally be as financially mobile) have the opportunity to own this tank provided they put in the time to complete the marathon.

 

Personally at Tier 6 I only have one exclusive tank that I bought with real money, but if that was to appear as an event prize at some point in the future then so be it....what goes around, comes around. ;)

Or possibly, and this is revolutionary, has other things to do than play tanks. Personally I'm done three missions and am going to buy the rest since the T-34-95 is a favourite of mine.

Missions only required a couple games tops each day and some could be done in 1 game for most players. You must be very busy to not be able to spare 10-15 minutes ......

No, it's not, the requirements were so low that anyone who played a few battles daily over a certain period recieved one whether they were aware of the event or not

 

You will still have it in your garage but thanks to the generosity of WG, some other players (who might not normally be as financially mobile) have the opportunity to own this tank provided they put in the time to complete the marathon.

 

lol, you think this was down to "generosity", really? Seems more like a cheap incentive to keep people playing during a traditionally dormant time period in the calendar. Why do I say cheap? because they didnt even take the time to produce a new tank or variant of an existing one for the event.

Personally at Tier 6 I only have one exclusive tank that I bought with real money, but if that was to appear as an event prize at some point in the future then so be it....what goes around, comes around. ;)

 

So if it's okay for you, it should be okay for everyone? What of those out there that purchased all tier 6 premium tanks under the impression that there would be no way to obtain them otherwise? Should they just say "so be it" after spending hundreds of pounds/euros/dollars only to see them later given away?

Makes me glad I did not initially pay for mine. As I won mine from WG shortly after they sold it the first time. So I got 1.5 million today.  Nothing stays "exclusive" in this game for long is something I learned a while back. The tag "rare" has little meaning anymore when they try and sell something. Like the Pz II J. The first few times it was on sale. It was more common on tier III then a BT-7. Well.. for a few tanks, the rare title still holds a meaning that is. But for how long? How knows.

No it won't. The population on it won't explode. But I suspect the stat pages will show at least a 3x in growth vs before the marathon, if not more. I can't even remember the last time I did see one. The past 2 weeks. I've seen 2-3 a day. And today I've seen 4-5 in each game. Tho when the event ends, it's usage will ofc drop. But the marathon alone more or less turned it from exclusive to more common.

Personally, i'm generally not that interested in "exclusive" items, i'm pretty utilitarian & not concerned with "status" type embellishments. I bought the tank as it was at least as good as those at it's tier & would make for a good crew trainer.

 

I really just used the term exclusive as distinction between F2P and paid for content.

 

To see paid for content become F2P not long after you've purchased it feels like you've been conned, especially when to make your purchase you had to pay for additional bundled content that you didnt need or want.

I payed for it also when it first came out but it really doesnt surprise me it is a trophy now. After all, since I started playing I won the T26E4, IS6, Dicker Max, KV-220, Type 62 and the WZ-111also in marathons ....
