Well lads and lassies, do you feel that 1.0 release specials were a tad underwhelming? Maybe for such a huge and historical update of the game we could have been treated with a tier 8 premium tank (for hard work and dedicated playing, of course. I wouldn't even think about a gift)?

 

OMG yes, I just dared to ask for a reward in game, bigger than what they've done so far....oh the shame....oh the ungratefulness..... Well good sirs, the 1.0 is here because of us. We invested time and money so they can benefit from it as well as we should benefit from their product (game). Something a bit better for EXTRAVAGANZA BANANZA event would be proper.

 

What do you guys think, will there ever be a tier 8 premium tank marathon again, or are we too spoiled for that?

T25 pilot was more or less 12 months ago, and the T-44-100 a few months before that. Toss in a few tier 6 marathons to like the T-34-85M and the Jap Tiger.. along with the Valentine II and the one going on right now. That's 6 free premiums in just over 16 months. So I'm sure one is not far off.

 

Do I think we need another one? Depends.... No need to spike the traffic as it stands now. As we had 150 000 at peak hours last night, that's a bit more then usual. As that's what marathons are for. Get people back. And I have 12 tier 8 premiums. I've only bought 3 of then... The rest is won via CC's or from WG via events. So I'm not complaining either way.

I do remember those definitely, just don't know what time they were on. Anyways usually marathons ran around the start of the year and towards the end (march and september)

I would be happy with just about any tier 8 premium as a reward (almost), but yea is-5 would be cool.

Yeah I would not expect that. The rage storm that would follow would make the T-34-85M whining seem like a kindergarten play sessions. As that is a CW reward tank. Not a normal premium if you will.

Yes it is a CW reward but one of the less popular (not a 907) also one of the less played so i doubt its owners will make a big fuss over that. One can dream you know :)

Yep, that is CW exclusive so no go. Anyway it seems to me WG is avoiding any decent tier 8 tank as a reward for a marathon. Oh get the t34-85m (which is really good by the way), get the valentine 2 and tiger HT jap version, 1.0 super duper omg rare tier 3 murican double gun for DP.... nothing higher than tier 6 for quite some time....

 

Other servers though...... but yeah different region equals different business models and all that bs.......

Tier III

T-29 was supposed to be released on Wargamings birthday in August 2017 but it was pulled for being OP in the wake of Fochsgate, it was then given to us in December 2017 with the exact same stats.

Tier VI

T-34-85M - July 2017

Heavy Tank No.VI - August 2017

Tier VIII

T25 Pilot 1 - March 2017

Tier X

AMX 50 Foch 155 (replaced) - August 2017

FV215b 183 (replaced) - December 2017

 

(T-44-100 marathon was September 2016 and there was a minimarathon for Dicker Max preceding it)

A T8 tank is worth too much to WG to give away when there's an EU Cash Cow to milk...
