Average player to spend 2hours a day to reach 5th stage and get it for 29 EUR !
Lorraine is for 35 EUR with no effort.
Attending marathon is ok, buying overpriced tank because of its bundle is not.
I hope that majority of players is capable of simple math and will not buy the tank only because they invest so much time to marathon.
If this sick concept will not be successful for WG then we might have next marathon similar to 85M or Pilot.
Think about it... thanks

A couple of days in, and its definitely feeling like the 2 weeks is too short.

I'm probably making a fair bit more XP than the average player, I played most of Friday evening and most of the day yesterday, and still barely on track for the XP requirements.

 

Still, the intermediate rewards are pretty decent, will pick up a few days premium and some credit boosters just for playing

Brilliant way to make money for WG this. 

Mission the timelimit is almost impossible. Only the most hardcore nolifers will be able to do this one. Not a single marathon before this, has been this out of line. They were all hard but doable! 

BUT many will try to attempt completing it. Adn they will get to mission 7-8 and go "[edited]it! i spend all this time, havent had a shower or been outside for 2 weeks! i WANT that tank!!" 

And they will pay the rest. 

GG WG. Money > community.

You are getting whole bundle for 29€, they priced this bundle really fair, way below real value.

I very much agree. That's so true...

It's the most sad thing I've seen from WOT.
They say there's one free for all ... Never seen a bigger lie...

Tells a lot about how WOT is....Sad  :(

This marathon is made so people will grind until they get to stage 4-5 ( because most players will be going the base XP way.) , then use the discount to buy the bundle.

This marathon is the biggest bait ever :trollface:.

 

People will be frustrated after dedicating time and eventually visit the prem shop...I have to admit that i was baited also to go for stage 7 and buy it.Woke up today,nice mood,life is good,made coffee and started playing.Defeat after defeat ,so much frustration.My performance was even worse than usual,had like 3/17 wins.If you are getting lots of losses it is impossible to advance.Using these [edited]reserves doesnt help also because you are stuck playing while tilted.Stopped using them completely.Might play again later when i come home and tomorrow is the final test if im still going for stage 7 or give up.

 

Progretto,spaggeto but probably regretto :justwait:.

Me personal I play as usual with mision activated. If I get the equipment from mission 4, I am already happy. For an average player this require huge amount of time that cost more than money.

I will see when time comes to end what discount I will have and if it worth buy or not.

You have right, I do well in tier 9 that in tier x. Tier X mm is worse than tier 9 and tier x don't have so much avantage over tier 9.

Because better players play tanks where they have the hignest average base xp.

I just realized how this campaign really is the autoreloader of mission marathons. Think about it:

- Single shot - Easy and simple, everyone can play it

- Autoloader - Quite demanding, but experienced / active players get great results

- Autoreloader - Can be played as either or both. If played just as a single shot, the DPM is worse than normal single shot. If want to use the burst damage of autoloader, reload times will be worse than in normal autoloader. 

 

Now look at the marathons we've had:

- Mini marathon (T34-85M) - Easy and simple, everyone can do it

- Full marathon (T25 Pilot) - Quite demanding, but experienced / active players get the great reward

- Progetto marathon - Can be played by both rec and active players can get some rewards. If you play just casually, the rewards are not quite as good as the tier 6 tank in mini marathons. If you want great rewards, you can get them by putting in the time, but it takes a bit more effort than traditional tier 8 marathons.

 

So stop complaining about how hard it is. Afterall, it is a FREE to play campaign that gives you rewards no matter how much you play. If you want to pay for the tank, you can but you don't have to. WG is not forcing you one way or another.

 

This forum is so full of first world problems where people rage quite the game because the font on a story was wrong or because their milkshake is two degree too cold. Grow up.

the XP requirements is ridicilous, 99% of the playerbase wont be able to do it. only unicums will be able to reliably complete it through the fastlane missions. Only way to complete this as non unicum is to have no job or school and play every waking hour.

 

still ill try to get as far as i can and enjoy a fat discount on the pasta tank.

Edited. so much experience you need to get to live at the computer! Go into random battles, the average percentage of victories for the second day in 30 does not pass. In this game it is impossible to play those who do not want to do this event! Why should everyone else suffer ??

You are a new player i shall forgive your ignorence. 

The T-35-85M was just a fun thing and a giveaway. not a marathon or anything. just tank for everyone to get. 

No the real marathons of the past where T26E4, WZ-111, T44-100/Type62/4? They were hard BUT doable, without leaving the real world behind. Everyone had a chance to complete those, and even take a day off in between. 

 

This marathon however? The massive luck factor involved doing it the press2 erm i mean tier10 way. since they are more luck than skill based. 

Then there is the skillbased part. The tier6-10 XP way. The amount of XP needed is way above what anyone will do in 14 days BASIC XP. They could easily reduce 25% of the XP needed to complete it, and it would still be a tough challenge. 

Now it is just close to impossible. Calling that a challenge where 90% of the player base have no other option for "winning" the reward, but paying the 40-60% discount at the end of it.
