So... that's a total requirement of 278k divided by 14 days gives 19,857k base xp per day... finish in the top10 and average around 500 base xp per battle when you remove the trashy battles and boost with the epic battles so... that's 19,578 divided by 500 makes it...about 40 battles per day.... well, 40 battles in which you make it into the top10 that is to say. Did I do the math correctly?

 

So, will you be playing around 35-45 battles per day for 14 days straight to get this tank for free. Will you bother? Will you buy it outright or just look to reduce it's purchase cost by completing as many missions as you think you could be bothered doing? Will you just play some battles to pick up some free stuff from the marathon or could you even be bothered with any of it?

The marathon finishes one day before I go on holiday to Belgium, so I figure I may as well stress myself out for a pixel tank.  I wonder how long it will take me to grind through suicide scouting while watching something else...

The 20 pounder kills this tank fo rme, I remember the techtree Caernarvon well anough to want to pay for a premium version.It might work for a medium or light, but surly not a heavy.

On top of the low alpha, tier aids is bad enough already.

 

I'll take whatever comes from the individual missions, and be happy with that.

Will attempt to grind as much as possible, then depends on how far I've progressed - if I manage to get it for free hooray, if I'm missing one-two steps I'll fork out the money, if three or more then no tank for me.

Like the Progetto... I'll just play normally. If I get it, great. If not, oh well. At least gonna try to set the first camo as a mark.

same as for the spaghetti I will just see how far I get and then purchase the rest most probably depending on reviews

My work is far too busy to expect to get it for free. so I'll just get as far as I can

Nah. I would rather deliver newspapers for 5 hours and buy the tank with that money than spend +50 hours of my time to get it for "free".

A 32-hour work week speaks enough for itself in my case.

I simply don't have the time to do it, nevermind the willingness.

Couldn't be arsed to do 75 battles for the T25 either, and that's a joke compared to this tank.

Both the marathon and the T25, that is, they're both jokes.

Why spend 50-60hours grinding for a premium tier8 tank when you can work 2hours in real life and buy a better premium tier8 tank straight away with the money you earned in 2hours of real life work.

I miss the option: I am going to do the alternative mission requirements in a fraction of the time needed to get the base xp.

You for got the option of participating to see how far you get but have no intention of paying for the tank, now if it had the 32 pounder, that might be different:trollface:

I'll go for it, because I can.

 

Also because its camo just so happens to have our clan's motto written on it. :D

will try to get to 8 for the round of credit boosters. Until WG fixes tier 8 aids, not gonna give them a dime, so no tank for me. No time for this bs - got the proseco for free, but no time for this one. And paying 30-40 euros for a pixel tank seems SF anyway.

 

I'm ok with paying 10/month as long as they fix MM for premium. But buying pixels for money... no thanks. Was only one tank that I really wanted(13 57), happened to be on the offer, bought it and I'm very happy with it. But except that one, paying for premium tanks? Am I nuts? Can't sell me a junk skin for 30 euros; I wasn't born yesterday. It's not a matter of money, it's  matter of principle.
