Yay for a new tank marathon.

 

Boo for a new Skorp G (it kinda is) that will ruin the MM for a while.

Well, mates, the Judgement Time came ...

A new Marathon for a tier VIII TD (another one Russian premium tank) is ready and waits for those who play a lot.

 

This is the real price, not the tier VI Light Tank (Russian too).

 

:izmena: Go, Go, Go ....

 

 

And the New Year's event is yet to come.

 

:)

 

BTW: THX WG ... for this Unexpected Journey (aahhhmmm ... Marathon I mean).

 

 

Edit: It is a very hard Marathon, so be ready for a lot of battles.

Nice. I like my TD's so will see how far I can get with this Marathon while just playing casually as normal.

 

Edit - 25.3k xp per day or roughly 43-50 battles per day yaaaaaaaaa noooooooooo..... thanks anyway though and I'll take the free stage stuff if and when I get any. Anyone have enough time to reel off up to 5,000 battles in 10 days? Well, I suppose you could reel off ace tanker performances at T10 instead, God knows it rains Ace tankers at T10 when I play lol.

10 days instead of 14. 253 000 exps instead of 280 000 exps.

 

This is not what I would call adjusting of requirments, this is total BS - but I suppose you were really surpirsed how many people got CaernAX for free, so it was quite expected...

"Unlike the British Challenge, you will instead have 10 days to take it on instead of 14. With that taken into account, all missions will be available from the start with conditions adjusted to the shorter timeframe."

 

Caern X 280k/14 days = 20k xp per day

Su-130pm 253k/10 days = 25.3k xp per day

253k exp needed over 10 days, which means 25300 per day. The missions up to 7 are relatively easy, but the grind is concentrated on 9 and 10.
The tank however is definitely worth it, it may lack the Skorp G accuracy and full turret rotation but it gains much better camo and 520 alpha gun, also it looks awesome, especially with that "snow leopard" style.
If i manage to get 70-80% discount i will definitely buy it.

Another Marathon, nice! However, the scaling of your xp is not correct, and this event is barely do-able for the average Joe.

 

The Caernavon AX required 280k xp over 14 days, which averages at 20k per day. The SU requires 253k in 10 days. This averages at 25.3k per day. This is an increase of xp of 26.5%, which frankly is a lot, especially regarding the fact that base xp is required. 

 

Really, the idea is good, but if you want less complaints about cash grabbing please scale the missions in a decent way as well.

Seems like a crashgrab for those who cannot play all day long. :) No way an ordinary man with a job can complete this. :) Thanks anyway its a no go for me. Not paying for tanks after you ruined my is6.

10 days, 10 missions... I know you can't skip ahead and do two missions in one day, but what if we miss a day or don't complete a days mission? Can we finish that mission the next day and then try catch up with the following days mission or does it reset? Or worse yet, lock the previous day?

They're not daily missions... you can charge through them as quick as you can,

Caern X 280k/14 days = 20k xp per day

Su-130pm 253k/10 days = 25.3k xp per day

 

 

 

25.000 per day. I take that the average player can do 750 exp per battle (wins losses) so a litttle more than 30 battles. With a normal game of 6 minutes.. (not a steamroll of 4 minutes) its only 3 hours per day for 10 days straight... 

WELL THANKS A LOT WG...
