Just wanted to say you guys did a great job!


I was pretty sceptical at the beginning of the marathon, thinking that the later missions would become harder and harder, as you would have done in the past.

Since I was unwilling to jump through hoops in the later stages, I just bought the T-34S for the sake of my tank collecting habit.


But I did play the daily Kursk missions for as long as I found them doable.

And guess what? They were all easily doable within just a few battles at most!


I (and hopefully a lot of other people who play this game) really would like it if WG would implement more of these kind of marathons, where any player can be rewarded for being active in this game.


Feel free to add some more variety in the mission.

Like for example, in the Kurk marathon, you had the north and south direction, where the south direction were a list of specificc tanks to choose from, with mostly easier to complete missions

What you could potentially do, is make a small list of tanks, or maybe even choose one or two specific tanks to have an easier mission for a single day.


For example:

Day 1:

South Direction: Do X mission 3 times in Panther

North direction: Do X mission 5 times in any other tank


Day 2:

South Direction: Do X mission 3 times in M4 Sherman

North direction: Do X mission 5 times in any other tank


etc etc


Stuff like this could make it a bit more interesting.


So yeah, great job WG!

I am greatly looking forward to simmilair mission marathons like these! :great:

I agree, though being the holidays I missed a few days so didn't get all 50 missions, the goal being set at 30 days worth was excellent.  I have missed so many tanks because I couldn't do every single day.    Some literally by 1 day.


I have probably hundreds of tokens....  wish I could use those to skip days too...

was fine but i couldnt make the 50 missions as my computer crashed, and i was 4 days off...


only one thing pissed me off alot when i won 1 garage slot and the game didnt paid anything


it just happened to me now again with the gamescon mission the game froze and nothing was paid, not the garage slot (so i lost 2) not the cammo... and of course anything else.... big meds, etc... nothing....


im now searching for the "safe mode article" Rvirgo told me in the general chat few mins ago.... where it is? (to check the game files and so on....

I also liked the mission, but the south direction was a bit silly imo. You just happen to have one of those tanks in your garage. Not that it really mattered though, mission requirements were really easy and imo doable for every player.

I like a lot this event. The mission were well balanced and the 2 mission choice was nice.

I just have to complain that the historical reference button was off most of the time...

But every thing else is been really fun and not too much demanding. :)

+1 from me, credit where due.

I don't have time to play every day for very long, but with the focus on the 'easier' mission choice, I managed to do about 42. I got a free tank and 8 days of premium, as well as loads of other stuff.

I missed a few at the beginning. I am not sure what happened, but I got about the sixth or seventh with normal game play and realised that it was on. I got all of the rest that I could, but the 50 was never going to happen as I was away for a week. I got the tank, though, and that is what matters. I haven't played it yet, though.

Which is how marathon missions should be, a long term target that everyone can do, that doesn't require you to play like a moron for a half a dozen games trying to achieve some ridiculous objective.

Last mission was the most difficult. Win once when you get a team of window lickers 3 times.

For once, I decided to finish a marathon. Must say, I'm a bit disappointed with the camo. Thought it was going to be some flashy non-historical one. Don't care about the T-34S.
But I do appreciate all the goodies and premium time. Overall, it made me play this game for a couple of games daily which is a win-win for everybody.
