tin foil hat time but my XP returns seem to  be currently down 10% to my `normal` returns. Im hoping this levels out after 100 or so battles and is not a `feature` of this event.

How much will the new tank cost?  Wondering how much the discount will be worth.

My guess is 40€ before discounts.

The tank is in the premium shop for sale with everything you get from the missions, it's just under £50 UK. You save a fiver for every mission you complete, they can stick it where the sun don't shine.

That would make it a pricey like the T-44-100.  I wonder if WG might price it lower so they actually sell some outside of the marathon.

I doubt. The idea of the marathons is to generally offer people a discount so they are "committed" to buying an otherwise overpriced tank because they've worked hard and don't want to throw away the 50% discount or so.

 

If they lower the price afterwards the people who "paid more" will start a big [edited]storm.

Thanks, didn't realise it was in the shop.  Looks like they've bundled it to push the price up - makes room to make it a £30 basic tank with no extras in the future.

Agree...they took the greedy approach once again...

They could have offered same discounts to unboundled tank for each player to choose to which option they want to apply the discount, but no...cynical side of me also noticed how they buffed the tank right before the release to make it more appealing... 

I will only buy it if I'm able to lower the price of the bundle to ca 20EUR.

To be honest, that buff was needed. Now its a decent tier 8 premium medium and not a turd tank like all the other tier 8 (premium) medium tanks.

Can I ask; when the blocking mission is mentioned, the Badger never is.  With the lower plate covered, should it not be good for the task?

Because its to slow? Also who in his right mind even tries to shoot a hulldown Badger? I wont, and neither will anyone else with some brainzzzzzz.

Yeah its godlike hulldown, but its the same like with IS7... there is just no point even trying. I rather shoot HE if I really dont have anything better to do with my life.

Well you always want to make the enemies think that they might have a chance. That also counts for the block mission. Picking something like a hulldown IS7 wont work since everyone knows about its turret.

Nice post and thread as always.

 

but sod this marathon, im not wasting my time for a crappy paper tank that will just get blown to pieces by tanks that it will struggle to pen regularly and coupled with the terrible dpm doesnt make me want to get it at all.

 

plus i have enough tier 8 prems even if its only two i would like something else for a change. But yeah.

 

i thought it would be pilot 1 style missions with some twists.

Quickybaby already told us all this.  That being said I came here expecting WW to tell us he'd already completed it.

In my opinion, they should have made both mission types aviable for tier 6-10 :)

Might be. However I did not watch his video and just wanted to write that down :)
