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.

 

Which is what in a nutshell is being complained about

That its a RIDICULOUS amount off time, not that it will take "some" time, its the RIDICULOUS bit thats kind of the key point

Smart guy... thats exactly what I said. How convenient to stop the quote before I gave the third option myself.

 

Now also respond to the second part of my post, which contains the actual point I'm making and not the intro you've nicely copied in your own words.

Both! :izmena:

 

 

Missions are set on player base averages and statistics. 
 

Oh yeah, so for average player it takes 10h a day to get a tank for free? :) For my unicum level on tier 9-10 it is 3-4h a day, wonder who is actually going to get the tank for free with these 'statistics based on averages' requirements. It is a marathon so I think it is only fair that average player has a chance to get the tank for free with a lot work. Atm this is just another way to milk community.

Oh look, yet another mission marathon from Wargaming that's nay on impossible to complete in 14 days.

Most of us have work and haven't got the time to spend 5 or more hours a day playing your broken 3, 5, 7 game.

 

Sorry Wargaming, but I have no incentive to play these days.

All you care about is getting a fast buck by introducing yet more tier 8 premium OP tanks every month.

It seems someone lost their position in WG for disclosing this ahead of time ("leaking"), so I already knew this would come.

 

It does leave a bitter taste, however...

No boosters just base XP.

I said not completely impossible.

Rounded up to a five desimals I have 0.00000% chance, but that is still not the same as impossible.;)

 

There is no chance of achieving 370 games in a row with over 1k base exp - even when best players will play in a platoon they will not win everything and will not get epic medal in every lost game - therefore it is impossible.

 

Look at the best players at wot-life - most of them have less than 1k average exp and I am pretty sure that the ones who are over it are having it with premium account (that do not count...).

 

In a 50 in a row - I would say possible. Maybe even in 100 battles in a row. But over 100 battles very unlikely and over 200 battles I see it as impossible due to RNG, random MM, some random ammo rack explosion, fire etc.

Ok, with every event missions are harder... I will try to get it just to check if I'm ale to do. Tank itself is big POS, so I'm not plannig to play it even if I'll get it for free.

I already have a full time job Dont need another one from WG for a max 20$ vehicle.

Wg is funny they ruin everything with grind and thinking players will be more interested in playing/paying for reward.

 

Well if im having 3-5-7 bottom tier every battle and need to win at the same time and add to that so many H grind every day needed - guess what WG i immediately lost interest in this event like in Grindline (since you ruined it with grind).

I will also not buy it since you overpriced bundle as always is full of unneeded stuff that only increased price.

Keep up this kind of events and you will successfully lose all my suport for this game and my interest in playing it more. The more grind you add the faster i lose fun and if game are frustrating (and they are thx to arty 3-5-7 etc) I always gonna chose different game over Wot.

So have a happy life in your office (till it last) thinking your approach to  Eu player base is a good one - i will watch from the side how quickly you gonna lose it even more than you already did.

 

I will enjoy the games made by other companies that are not grindy not forcing me to spend hours in game everyday to get something and fun at the same time and my money goes to them not to you.

Extra rewards are not that appealing, with all that directives as prizes. I wish they will bring back the good old personal reserves as prizes.

Players expect that this branch of wehicles would be on discount during marathon so we can purchase tier IX and X at minimum 30% discount. Something like top-of-tree discount.

This will be the first marathon I'm not even going to bother to attempt. Just looking at QB's video and his spreadsheet, I will have to play between 3 and 3.5 hours a day.

After stage 6 the grind is just a joke. WG aren't even subtle anymore with a blatant cash grab. The grind is the worst yet for this kind of marathon for argubly the worst marathon vehicle so far.

So what's that now? 4 marathons in a year, I sense WG could be in a bit of financial difficulty and desperate for instant income to make the books balance.

 

I realise no one is forcing players to do this, good luck (to the very few I imagine) who actually get this for free.

Someone who actually manages to get ebr for free should receive a few free psychotherapy sessions as well.

Cos' mentally healthy ppl won't do that, believe me.

 

 

Mentally healthy ppl can do these missions with tier 10s which won't take them long time 

 

Mentally healthy people don't play world of tanks. No offense to WoT players, I'm just joking. Seriously.

I dont want to be a WGs advocate, but you gonna be surprised how many, for example during weekends, can fill a 7-8h playing in a single day. Or 3-4h per day is actually less than an afternoon. I do sometimes, and trust me i have a life, plus other hobbies and jobs. 

* However i work mostly from home, and between work, i squezz some battles every now and then when i want a fast break. 

 

Sure their aim is for most people to end bying the tank with 80-90% discount (aka propably closer to truer 60-70% if you consider it is already inflatted price) but, hey... this is a company that needs to get money to keep going. This is propably with most events , like for example helloween etc.

 With calculations to get this one for free you need a average 40 battles per day !!!

This marathon its harder cause wargaming realised that many players got for free progetto, caernarvon and su130pm , so they change the condition of missions and make them even harder to just make you to reach max top 70% discount .
