Why did NA get the chance to do a marathon for 3 tier 8 premium tanks but players on other server just have to suck a big D because they didn't

I think we should demand that we also get this marathon because this is BS

Our votes got WoT the GJ award and the give us x2 for every victory... Really ... cheap much ???

Because in the early years 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 whiners on EU used to complain bitterly all over the forum that the marathons were to much effort, too long, too much playing the game, and so WG listened to the EU player base and stopped the marathons on EU.

 

Shame really. On EU I got IS6, SuperPershing, TOGII, Type 62, and Dicker Max all on marathons.

Because marathons suck.

 

They are for no lifers who don't mind working for a fraction of minimum wage.  Here in Europe we have laws against such slavery.

Imagine this.  You are running your own business.  You own 2 shops.  One is thriving and making good money.  The other is in a less popular area and struggling to attract customers.  Would you not run promotions in the shop that is struggling to attempt to attract more customers?

 

The word here is demographics.  EU demographics are very different to NA.  You cannot compare the two regarding promotions.

I would shut down the struggling one.  No point bringing in more customers if you are making a loss on them.

:teethhappy:  The shop makes a small profit and could potentially out-earn your main business.

Because missions rewarding premium tanks is the only thing keeping the population above 15K. They also reward tier III premiums for doing top of the tree missions 50 times. Or tank rewards missions simply by playing 10 games a day for 25 days every month. This month they got the D-max if they did it. As free premiums, is the only think keeping that server alive. That's why they got 3 marathon missions.

 

Then again, on EU the past year or so we have gotten 4 free tanks, and I see you own one of them. So is that not enough?

 

But could you even do those 3 marathons? As you have do to 40 to 50K damage a day of the Mutz in German and Jap tanks. + 25% of the total enemy HP in damage one day and win on the T34B in only UK or US tanks. Or 25 wins as top 5 one day in Russian or Swedish tanks on both the T34B and IS-6 separately. It's not as easy as the T-34-85M missions considering that their marathon was limited to tiers and nations pr tank. And going by your garage. You would struggle to get all 3 of them. Or one based on the tanks and tiers you own.

So have you compared all the marathons this year on the 2 servers? 

They usually coincide with a relevant holiday or celebration. The current NA one is for Thanksgiving, a USA holiday not a European one.

And believe it or not the NA players also vote for the Golden Joystick awards.

Thanksgiving is not an American holiday. They just made it so. Just like they commercialise everything.

cause marathons are making players unhappy if:
- if they are too hard

- if the reward tank is already owned

- if reward tonk is a joke

 

PMs is way better concept, cause it is not time bound. So, I'll take another set of PMs over the marathon any time.

For all those who want a marathon because it's a challenge or whatever, I have a marathon for you.

 

Mission 1. Go get a job.

Mission 2. Get paid.

Mission 3. Buy the Pixel tank with real money.

That sounds like the perfect way to see far more whining threads about how unfair everything is.
