We can all agree, this is the grindiest one yet. But, do you think it should be extended by two days?

Voted yes. Unfortunately I doubt that it will change. But I think that the marathons we've got lately is horribly bad. When you feel that you should even play while you eat just to manage the grind, it has gone too far. WG, this is a game, not a job. No matter how much we like this game, we can't be here for 8 hours per day. I miss the days when marathons where actually doable in 1-2 hours per day for a whole month rather than 8 hours per day for 10 days. What we have right now are discounted sales, not marathons.

Plan was like this, get to 70-80% discount, buy the bundle and get some brain rehabilitation till the Christmas event starts. Now that was going just fine, why would you have to come with such an awful idea? :)

While I'm not really interested in the marathon (still like the rewards the stages give ofc), I do vote yes. The requirements are a bit too tight for this marathon really. Either extend it, or drop the TX requirement for the alternative goals. Mainly because TX is a real mess atm (my Maus likes it tho, if you need to bounce triple your HP, it's now the moment to drive it!). Als T8 MM is just near always TX once more, with a lucky match that doesn't contain TX tanks. And if super-lucky, you are actually in a match with no higher tiers.

Hard hitting TD for free ? Must have hard marathon.

Or reach whatever level and get a discount on it. Seems fair to me.

Please, no.

 

The game is infested by people in tier tens who are playing beyond poorly. I have no idea why they are even playing tier tens: they are clearly never going to do the stage requirements, but they are playing tier ten anyway. The longer this marathon is active, the longer these people are basically ruining the game. Loss after loss because people appear to bot in tier tens. There is just no other word for it. This means tier 8 and tier 9 are equally bad.

You are so naive.WG designed those marathons not to give free stuff, it is for selling tank for lower price. You must pay, this is #1 priority.

As they stated in the first place that they shortened the marathon so that it won't clash with their other events in December, I can't see them changing their mind and extending it. The client probably can't cope with counting the progress on the marathon AND on the Christmas Tree. Of the two, sorry, but I really liked my Christmas Tree last year. Not forgetting the fact that people buying boxes of decorations in the hope of getting a Type 59 or Defender will probably earn WG more than if they extend the marathon and delay the Christmas Tree event.

Presumably they set the parameters so that an expected (low) X no of people get the tank for free, another X get 90% discount, and so on, and they come out with a profit of BYR X, and we all participate to the extent that we appreciate the value of either (a) the stuff you get for doing stages, (b) the discount you get on the tank (or both), and we're all happy.

 

You want Wargaming to alter the parameters so that you're more happy and they are less happy. I don't think they'll go for that, to be honest. I voted yes, though, obviously.

Is it so hard to figure out, you get guns that do 750 alpha damage per shot, thats why people want the big stuff, give me that alpha on any tank at tier 6 and I would be playing tier 6 all along, but no, you get puny little pop guns like what you have on the Cromwell, who wants that?

In that case they shouldn't call it a marathon. The whole point with a marathon is that players are able to get the main prize by playing, not by paying. And by "get", I mean within a reasonable amount of playing. 6-8 hours per day is not reasonable. This should be called a discount event.

No thanks. I'm fine with it being this short. Less days where people go crazy and ruin the matches as tier 10s

Hate that tank with a passion, in fact both of them, so double the hate. Very much on the to get rid of list, whats is worse they both won't make much credits, buff the aim, on them or get shot of them, stupid meme tanks, literally the one tank where I am lucky if I get a shot off, and fully aiming does not a damn thing:angry:

As you understand these marathon lately are play 2 get a discount,They changed from 14 to 10  days to increase the revenue.So nothing will change,just use the visa card.

I have no intention of trying to complete the grind to get it for free, nor will I buy it no matter what discount I am at. Currently almost done with stage 5 and that is what I wanted to achieve, mainly for the goodies you get alongside completing stages and keeping my sanity. 

 

That being said, I voted yes to give those that ARE trying to grind this thing out will have some more time to do so, since the requirements are too much in too little time.
