I was just checking the Sneak Peek for the September and I just saw that we are going to get not one, but two marathons in the next month. I knew about one: Caernavron Action X, but before that we will have another one. it`s called Sprint Event and will run btw 1 and 13 September and you could win a „shiny new mid-tier Premium tank!“. :amazed: So I am now concerned... WG, are you ok?

They having one realy big event on CIS right now, so my guess is that this mid-tier marathon is some sort of alternative for eu server.

Nothing wrong with two marathons. It is not that you are enforced to participate in every marathon they have.

Not unheard of. We had the Type 62 and KV-220 Marathons running at the same time followed by a TOG Marathon.

They are going to sell you crew with skills for money as well so it would seem they have reason to become ever more desperate, not a good sign....

It would seem Wargaming is in financial trouble if they have to blatantly grub for money like they have done in the last few months. Might not be smart to put any money in this game in the foreseeable future.....

Your irony detector is not working. I have no issue with 2 marathons in one month. I love it!

Is it just me or does the sprint event reward tank look like an armored car?

Most probable marathons details :

  • Spring event will have a rare or bad premium tank an existing premium tank. According to Ph3lan this tank "is a keeper".
  • Caernarvon marathon is very short for a tier VIII. It will be almost impossible to get for free but they will sell tokens.

 

Edit : Added the information given by Ph3lan.

Exactly, it does have that boat like front overhang not dissimilar to AC’s but rare in fully tracked vehicles.

WG is fine, two marathons have nothing to do with anything, all is handy dandy fine.

 

 

I'm sure this is unrelated. The game's never been better. All these haters have no proof to say that WG is slowly approaching the drain. It's a great time to invest more cash in the game.

 

Your reserve "300% Sarcasm" has expired.

That is a stock "covered mystery tank" image used all over the portal, it does not represent the actual tank, whatever it may be.

It's so sad that you actually have to explain that.

I don't mind. You either go for those marathons or don't. It's your own choice. I just hope that this mid-tier premium is worth it and it's not something like the Sentinel. I wouldn't mind another T-34-85M as I've missed the original marathon for it. Maybe a KV-122 or that's too high to be considered mid-tier ?

I doubt that the Caern X marathon will be that hard, as WG already said that they've looked in the past with the Spaghetto and were going to make the missions easier. I just hope that it's not a case of consistent, every day playing, coz I'd like to take at least one day off per week, without even looking at WoT.

Ph3lan admitted the second tank is the Tier 5 Pz. Kpfw. T 25

Making the missions too hard wouldn't make any sense, also if WG wants to sell any tokens. The trick is get as much players (bad - average as well) committed to the marathon and sell a few tokens to them if they just don't manage to get it on their own. And honestly i don't see anything wrong with that, the players still get a sense of achievement and you can still participate knowing you are not required to play every single day.

Oh, lol I guess. First time I took the effort to look at an annoucement. Anyways, it still might be an armored car. :D
