No, as I don't see a reason for it. In the Spaghetto marathon, I didn't bothered playing Tier 10s at all. It was mostly Tier 8 Premiums and some Tier 6 funnsies, like my Hellcat or T-34-85.

I thin kit all should only be open to T8 - T10,

It's stupid having it open to t6  it puts t8 tanks in the hands of players without the crew skills or player skills for high tier battles, ruining these battles for the high tier players.

And that differs from over half the tier 8 premiums atm how? Considering how much XP you need to get the tier 8 with a tier 6 only. That's more than enough to grind a tier 6 to 8 as is.

Because they have to be bought so only a small percentage can afford them, new tank goes on sale you 2 to 4 a side each battle for a few days

campaign tanks are completely free so they are available to everyone, think what a completely free t8 premium tanks going to do to.

Available to everyone.... that has the time to do it. As you need over 300K XP. It's not like the T-34-85M that did ruin tier 6 MM for a while that even an afk player had the chance to get. And if you only play mid tier and don't buy tier 8's. They are either not interested, or take it as a bonus. As I said.. 300K XP is enough for a new player to get from tier 6 to 8 before he gets the reward tank. By then, "damage" is already done.

A "lot" (NOT ALL) of people who cant afford it are the people who have time on their hands because they don't work or at school, collage whatever, (exception being hard workers with families),

But you only need to do 10% of the marathon you can buy the other 90% getting the tank and all the other rewards as well.

So the vast majority of the player base will still be able to get the tank.

WG tries to promote tier X gameplay.

So do not expect that the “fast track” will be available for tier VIII and tier IX.

No.

 

It should be tier 8 instead of tier 10.

 

Only for the sake of the mm queue of course.

The marathon being limited to tier 10 will drag a lot of the 10s out of the random queue from all the players convinced they'll be able to skip missions quickly so tier 8 MM should be a little more forgiving for the next couple weeks.

Those missions are not to give you free stuff - it is a quick fix for a MM issue of tier 8 vehicles. It will work only for some time, but everything that cuts down on the top tier population is a good thing. So no, those should not be available to tier X.

These marathons should be open to all tiers.

I'm not gonna waste time trying to get the tier 10 missions. I'd rather play my own way and grind the xp.

It's the other way round.  It will put more tier X into the random queue and the mm will have to find tier VIII tanks for a certain portion of them to club.

No you shouldn't get this tank by spamming easily OP tiers VIII premiums like Skorp G and the like, farming poor tiers VI and earning too much money doing it.

Personally I say yes since this is a tier 8 vehicle, however I'm not fussed either way.

While I understand the intention of it (promote Tier X battles), these do not make sense to me to be fair - do 10 Tier X missions to get... a Tier 8. WHAT. (plus current balance of Tier X still doesn't feel good/fun, I think)

I think missions like these should be intended so that you could do them with the same tier of tank you're playing for and higher (in this case, tier 8 and above).
