I'm not sure if giving away easy Prem tanks is good or bad.

 

Whilst I love my T34-85M, it's clear lots of others do too. Still loads of them in T6 MM...

I'm curious about the xp challenge, is it something like the tank rewards on NA server?

After few months it will be ok again. However considering how good the T34-85M is and one could say its a bit OP... Missions were way too easy. Doing them in 1-2 battles... They could have given them also for free.

 

But if I remember correctly there used to be Excelsior marathon few years ago and that was realy easy as well. Cant quite remember what it was though.

 

However excelsior is nowhere near as good as T34-85M

Of course there's loads of it. Everybody's trying out their shiny new toy and at the same time building up a nice crew encouraging them to pick a regular tank from the tech tree and go up that line while making good credits so they can buy them. That's how it works and it's a good thing of course.

 

Dicker Max today, Grille 15 tomorrow.

T34-85M, Obj 416 + T54 + Obj 140 + T62A

 

Now, I want chinese tier 8 prem (hopefully) so I finally decide to go up to 113 and the new one 111 5A.

I'm on holiday for a week in August so I'm just hoping that any marathons have enough slack to allow me to complete them.

 

Apart from that it all looks good.

 

I really like the idea of a French Premium.  Anything other than Russian would be good (I've plenty of Russian premiums).

love the first part, "This month, the floor goes to the Strv 103B, the Swedish tank destroyer with a unique gameplay and the exclusive Siege and Travel modes."

 

Just becuase its "unique" doesent mean its a posative, i could put sprinkles on a turd and it could be considered "unique". This garbage is threw the whole tech tree untill tier 9 where they actually bounce a single shell. the "exclusive" Siege Mode is horrible clunky mess and forces the TD's to be the most boring campfest tank in game. its actually LESS DYNAMIC than playing arty! give yourself a pat on the back WG, it takes seriouse skill to make a "unique" and "exclusive"  class of tanks that is actually more boring and fustrating to play than arty.

So not a single word about what tank are they talking about?! Wtf? Half a day before the marathon starts we know nothing about it. Nice to see WG employees doing their job... not!

No. It`s says pretty clear that the t29 „will be gifted with the occasion of the game birthday in August 2017“. I`m talking about the reward for the monthly marathon that will last from 1 to 31 august!

This is a long Marathon, I also bet that it will be much harder than the one for the T-34-85M, so, I don't thing that it will be anything bellow tier VIII.

 

Probably it will be a tier VIII medium tank (like in the most of the previous years' long 'n' hard Marathons) ... I just hope that It will be one of these I don't have it already.

 

The tier III premium tank that is mentioned is going to be a totally free gift for the players who will log-in to the game during the event time (that is how it worked the previous years).

...or maybe (I hope so) we will have also an even longest Marathon for Sept-Oct.

 

Last year we had 2 Long Marathons and if I recall well, we didn't had a short marathon like the one for the T-34-85M.

To be honest, WG really surprised me with the T-34-85M Marathon ... it was way toooooo easy, WG almost gave away for free a very good premium tank.

Hmmm, that last mission is quite annoying for such a mediocre award.
