Great, only around 6-700 battles in 2 weeks if you are a half decent player... "Sure" I'm going to do that after grinding frontlines as defender for the last week.

Btw, why are tier 8 not included in the mastery missions, they got the worst mm, so must be harder than in a tier 9 or 10?? xD

Days got longer, weather is nice, my exams are over... so... NOPE, not going to happen. I didn't grind Progetto because of good weather, I'm not going to grind this thing. I got CAX and 130PM at 90% discount, and this is not worth it. 5 hours a day... just nope. But thanks for the opportunity ;)

 

Enjoy the weather! It's still moderately cold/rainy here :(

Yep tier 9 being added for mastery missions a good thing as tier X an unbalanced mess atm. You know what would really take the pressure off 3/5/7 and t8 tanks ?............fix the awful MM. It was July 2018 WG promised to fix the MM in 6 months !

 

It's also announced in the coming in 2019 announcement.

Thats nice mods, removing my post for saying I dont like this. Very nice.

I used polite wording even. I just say 'hate' once. Come on.... what are you doing!?

 

I just say I want to buy the EBR 75 for a normal price without grinding for it....

I have no time to grind. I play like 20-30 games/week.

Only option I have is to buy a bundle with basically ONLY credit stuff added at that impossible conversion rate you're using.

 

come on...

Eekeeboo, can you please explain why my post on the first page was removed?

I used polite words only. Only said I don't like the marathon and I'm really dissapointed not being able to buy the EBR 75, which i've looked forward to for a long time now.

Why are you making things difficult to achieve every single time. I mean that's a very time consuming grind. Its not even fun to play atm. I like the idea that you spread the limit to tier IX for hard line conditions. But its not going to be fun to play. You did the same with front line now this. its not fun for us its boring and brain damaging honestly. I would ask to reconsider and lower the conditions on all stages. A lot would like that.

 

The idea being something that's worth money to a company encouraging a challenge and more play time from players who want it for free or letting players earn a discount to their play style and standards.

Man, Mission for commitment in Stage 7-10 really seem a bit crazy... Do we know the price yet? I really want the tank, not sure how many missions I can make / how much i want to spend though... Good vehicles just aren't available for gold anymore... What am i supposed to do with all the christmas gold?

Thank you for your reply, I appreciate it!

I agree it could be more constructive, however I don't think there was much wrong in my post. I have looked at the screenshot I have and its not nearly as 'non constructive' as I feel about this. Anyway discussing this seems rather pointless here.

AAAAAA! :(
Why did you change the marathon rules WG... It was grindy but worked nice, you advanced towards the objective no matter the success of the team, now NOPE! have a "win" condition!
Lets assume we have a player winning 50% of their games:
Stage 4: 25 wins that means 50 battles minimum, but lets not forget the top ten requirement, every player donks out sometimes, that means for a 50% guy, say, 10 extra battles, so we have 60 games at 6 minutes average, that gives us 360 minutes or 6 hours for stage 4(at 50% win rate)
Stage 6: 35x2=70  70+10=80   80x6=480 minutes(or 8 hours)
Stage 7: 80 top 10 exp, so at least 90-95 games, that means 9 and a half hours
Stage 8: 90 top 10 exp= 105 games or 10 and a half hours.
Oh, and Stage 2: 7 wins=17 games= 102minutes.

Sooo, just for the win/top 10 missions an avarage 50% player has to play 35 hours... And that is not including the 133k of base top 10 exp required for the other stages...

Why you made it team dependent WG???
At least the mastery missions include tier 9s now, might make them easier to complete since tier 9s get the best MM right now and you get an exp bonus for shooting tier 10s.

I shall wait to see how the bundle is priced, since it is a light tank i expect it to be at least 10 euro cheaper than those in previous marathons, if it is not... hard pass from me!

Since we dont know the price of the bundle yet, and the requirements seem...steep...I think I will play normally, reaping the rewards from each stage and see where I end up discount wise before deciding #walletopen or #walletclosed.

 

GG to all who are going to no-life the [edited] out of this marathon. :honoring:

It should be a zero point first skill! 

 

At least one of the other BIA crews wasnt

So a simple yes or no is hardly asking much really as SOMEONE should actually know the answer to such a basic question

But considering WG couldnt even manage to list the EBR stats properly (stationary/moving cammo is the wrong way round), I guess perhaps it IS asking "too much" for someone to ACTUALLY know something so basic

Impossible for 99%of the player base, WG want us to fail so getting 40-60% off seems like a good deal.

Problem is it will be a £60 bundle for a £20 tank so in the end they will sell it to the mugs for about £30, yea great deal for us.

Mate, if you don't know how to count, use your fingers ... like I do ... and I count 14 fingers.

 

A finger for 21st of February, a finger for each other day, the last finger (the 14th) is for March the 6th, no finger for March the 7th = 14 fingers ...

... easy, isn't it?

I find it strange how everybody simply accepts the marketing tecniques applied.

 

"I rather pay than grind for hours"... sure me too, if I need to make a decision between the two I will pay, but the point is you are forced to choose between two bad options or don't get the tank. Ok so I won't get the tank. Fine. 

 

What I don't understand however is why is there soo much complaining when tanks get bundled with gold, but not for these marathons where tanks effectively get bundeled with credits. Then WG gives you the option to play a lot of hours to get (part of) the credits for 'free' and it's ok?

 

How? Why? In what universe? 

 

Am I the only one dissapointed?

 

Please explain this to me.

No thanks. I'm taking a break from WoT cause of Frontline, which is also insanely grindy.

If you want to have multiple grind sessions going on, make sure to make them less grindy individually.

 

Edit: Also, a good idea would have been to incorporate the grind for this marathon into the Frontline gamemode. That way, people could hit 2 birds with 1 stone.

But obviously you'd rather have people pull out their credit cards.

Well that's it really - there are 3 options:

 - Play a ridiculous amount and get it for free

 - Play a little/not at all and pay for an bloated bundle, or get a discount on an bloated bundle

 - Don't buy the car

 

No one is forcing you to do the grind, or pay the money, but don't expect a shiny car at the end of it if you aren't willing to do one or the other.
