I believe the last one was the T25 Pilot 1, almost 1yr ago; since then we had the T-34-85M (more of a giveaway) at t6 and the HT no. VI, which was more of a contest of skill towards the end.

 

Do you think WG will do another marathon for a premium t8, and if so, when and what will it be ?

 

I suspect it will be right after 1.0, when ppl are drawn to the game, and it will be some t8 medium with not so great alpha (240 or so).

As for the nation, it will either be an introductory tank, to a new nation (PL/IT) or it will be for a nation with lots of premiums .... germany maybe ?

 

PS: If someone has a link to all of the tank marathons WG has done, it would help a lot.

Tier 8? IS-6, T26E4, T-44-100, T25 Pilot, WZ-111 & the FV4202 via a special mission for past owners comes to mind.

 

Other then that the D-max, T2 Light, Type 62 & KV-220 "both were done at the same time, but you could only do one", Valentine II a few weeks ago besides the others you mentioned.

 

I'm sure we will have more tier 8 marathon missions, but when? Who knows.

Well, the T25 pilot was almost 1yr ago, and the T-44-100 was like 4-5 months before that i think .... more maybe ?

 

The IS-6 and the SP were at the same time ?

And was the SP in the game sold/tech tree, before the marathon ?

No, IS-6 and Super Pershing were separated by something like 6 months IIRC. Both of them could be bought originally from the tech tree. Since then though, at least for tier 8 prem marathons, WG seem to have introduced new tanks rather than allow you to get existing tonks.

No the IS6 and SP were different marathons.

 

The SP was sold prior to and post it's marathon.

 

One marathon with a tank choice was KV220 or Type 64 (CN light tank). That was along time ago now.

IS-6 was the first tier 8 marathon on EU back in late 2013 or early 2014 when the Japanese tech tree was added. You had to get 100K XP in each nation using tier 6 tanks only inc Japan. And Japan was added when you had 2 weeks left of the event, and it was only the medium line for the Jap tech tree back then. So 100K XP with the Chi-to. SP was a year later give or take. Iirc you had to do about 100K XP in each nation with tier 6 to X tanks. But the 2nd weekend they added a 5x event that counted. So everyone got it done rather fast then. And yes, SP was sold in the tech tree even then. This was before the store only premiums came.

Summer 2014 iirc. They sold the 220 during the 2013 Xmas sales, so I went for the 62 as I had the 220, as I bought the 220 when they added the cheapest bundle in early Jan "€15".
