So this marathon event is a shared one, people need to sign up using the code "SEPTEMBERSPRINT" and everyone who does will work towards achieving 25 million tokens together, get that and we win the T25.

 

Taken from reddit if you want to give karma.

Unfortunately you get credits, 600.000 that is.

I had it in the dim and distant. Maybe my memory is playing tricks, but doesn't it suck?

It turns like a container ship but is fast in a straight line, and the gun bloom is horrendous. Even as such, i have a 60%+ WR in it and good average damage... but that's probably because I'm borderline sealclubbing when I play it.

Seal clubbing is the best kind of clubbing. I've paid my dues - to hell with playing this game honourably.

I did toss it in. 600 000 credits is not bad. And there might be other rewards along the way. As you simply get it by playing. Why not. 

 

As for the tank? Well, it's IMO the worst tier 5 premium med "yes even vs the Chi-Nu-Kai". As the gun handling is trash. 

 

Edit: Here is a thought. If it's a shared goal. It means everyone gets it at the same time. Tier 5 is gonna be full of them. Then it's def time to take out the O-I or KV-2 and do missions. I'll save the "do damage to meds" for that day.

Indeed. The cynic in me sees these marathons as a great chance to live the dream of the born again sealclubbing bastard.

It sucks if your crew is bad.

But with a good crew, the T25 is quite dangerous, I 2-marked it and I'm on the way to the thrid mark, but that will need some more work.

 

I use it as a fast relocating TD. It's completely unsuited for close combat.

And what if you already sold it? :) Do you get it again?

Possibly not, as you have to join the event with a code and then accumulate enough tokens by playing (75)  to actually qualify for the tank. So it's not just a log in after everyone else has ground the 25 mill and collect it, that may catch out a lot of people who don't bother to read the requirements....

 

So possibly a lot fewer people will get the tank compared to the last event of this

It's a complete and utter turd. Had one years ago and rage sold it. There's just nothing good about it. It's ugly, gun bloom is horrendous and battleships turn faster. Still, I'll gladly get it then sell it for whatever it's worth in credits.

I wonder what this means -

 

'A full crew for the Pz.Kpfw. T 25' Just 100% or maybe a better one?

 

So many players will not sign up to this, half of them can't even find the options or the mini-map but WG expects them to go to the website and activate a code? 

 

Basically you'll need to have gotten into the top 10 by base XP 75 times in 14 days, so around 5 battles per day in tiers 4+ 

 

Horrible tank from what I remember, bought it on my invite account to get the T95E2 as it was on discount at the time and I had gold from a code, and sold it about 10 games later as the horrible gun handling put me right off. 

 

But some boosters, including credit boosters, a GLD which can be sold for 250k IIRC, 600k to sell the tank, 44 premium consumables that you could sell for 440k, so even if you didn't want to tank a pretty easy way to make 1.3 million credits and day of premium.

The other thing to remember is that straight after this is the Caernarfon AX marathon. The T25 marathon is probably within reach of most casual players, with a bit of effort. The next one will probably be out of reach for most. You may want to save some of your energy if the T25  doesn't mean much to you...

Do you think that grinding 75 token in 3 days is doable? I will be on vacation and will have just 3 days to get the minimum ammount of tokens...

A 'bit of effort' it's basically play the game above tier 4 and not suck too hard.  There isn't even a win requirement. 

 

It's say 40-45 games in a week, playing whatever tanks you want as long as they are above tier 4 and I'd reckon most active players do that anyway.

They have 5 a month inc rental missions and tank rewards.com. So no there yet. As they started it to keep the peak hours above 20K. Now even more to keep it above 10K after they added the latino servers. Tho unofficial stats servers say daily logins are at a drop. We still kick the 100K peak hour marks vs the years before. Tho the final answer to that question will come this Xmas.. if we get over 200K at all. If not... then that's as good as an answer as anything from WG.
