Marathon requirements have already been published on ASIA site (very similar to Progetto), and they are as follows :

 

Stage 1-5 = 75k base xp

Stage 6 = 35k (20h of credit boosters)

Stage 7 = 35k (you get camo on stage 7)

Stage 8 = 40k (20h of credit boosters)

Stage 9 = 45k (20h of credit boosters)

Stage 10 = 50k (Caern AX comes with BIA crew and camo)

 

So overall you have to grind 75k for S5, 150k to reach S7 and 285k to reach S10.

And that is base XP, and only if you reach top 10. It is the equivalent of grinding a t10 line in 2 weeks time.

 

Breakdown by stage.

Stage 1 = 3k base xp /// 1 high caliber @ t10

Stage 2 = 6k base xp /// 5x block 4k damage (wish i had finished the 268 4 grind)

Stage 3 = 12k base xp /// 5x top on damage

Stage 4 = 24k base xp /// 10x >850 base xp

Stage 5 = 30k base xp /// 10x >4.5k damage (love you TVP T50/51 / 113)

Stage 6 = 35k base xp /// 5x high caliber

Stage 7 = 35k base xp /// 15x top on xp

Stage 8 = 40k base xp /// 20x top on damage

Stage 9 = 45k base xp /// 20x >850 base xp

Stage 10 = 50k base xp /// 20x top on xp

 

PS: Original article here.

There may be some mistake in calculating overall required XP, but the order of magnitude is about right, sub 300k base xp.

Some of those requirements are disconnected from reality.

 

And base xp. Yuck!

Impossible for me and the tank is not even that good, I mean two week s only, hell's bells I cannot even get started on these stupid campaigns. Gg WG, but thanks for putting up the requirements.

 

Of course, set the bar so high and they know full well people will give up and buy the thing, cunning ploy by WG

Yeah, I can't pass that marathon. I can do the xp, but those other conditions are just...

If it has the 32 ponder gun I might be tempted to buy it, but 20 pounder, no way, regular tech tree cearn is mediocre at best and you have to use premium ammo, well I do anyway.

​If its the same as previous marathons, the two options per stage are two exclusive "directions" to get to the goal. If you are happy grinding xp only then  you will progress through the stages.

you can - fulfilling the conditions bypasses the XP requirement

ok that makes more sense. One assumes you don't need to choose though? I can't remember from the progetto missions

Looks doable then. Depending on how much time I have I might go for the whole thing or at least try to get my hands on some of those sweet credit boosters.

My first instinct was 'scr*w this' .... but the CAX has sub 5s reload on the gun, good dpm, decent turret, decent mobility, and the BIA crew .... i think i'll try to reach 90% at least through the M48 grind this month.

Yeah basically the same format as the prog. So most "normal" people will pass to stage 5/6/7 for around 50% discount on a premium that is suitably overpriced to start with...:P

 

By the time you've got sucked into the "grind" it seems like a shame not to buy the tank.

 

It's a neat scheme. Like with shops who put up the price of an item for a month and then next month they sell it for "50% bargain discount" and everyone thinks they've got a good deal...

You didn't need to chose, you could try to do the missions in tier 10 and if you hit the XP requirements first you'd complete it that way.

 

I'm probably looking at trying to get to about 60-70% and then buying it like I did with the Progetto.

well all would be ok but why we cant do missions in lower tiers but only in t10 if we dont choose xp path? all in all they say it became more easy but somehow i really doubt about it. Probably gonna choose xp way and will try to get to stage 7 or 8 and then buy a tank. In general tank is average but i want those x30 creds boosters.

The conditions that bypass the base XP requirement, are they limited to only tier 10? :unsure:

 

EDIT:

 

Yes, it's limited to only tier 10 as shown here.

 

@WG: Why do you have to make it limited to tier 10??? :angry:

Easy missions!

 

And 280k exp is not even close to grinding a t10 line.

 

Average avg is 700k for tier 1 to tier 10...

That's 280k BASE XP. It's pretty close, depending on how you do the grind.

Is that free xp? for that would take me weeks, although I ground up from zero to 72k free xp in a day to unlock the Tiger 2
