Again, this estimation is about 2 times off.

 

avg players that play 2-3 hours/day will reach at LEAST lvl8, not max lvl 6. 

 

 

i wonder how:) lvl 6 will take for average player like 70 battle somewhere around 10 hours. Lvl 7 will take even more.

Agree. The only ones I find useful is the camo, sixth sense and firefighting ones. I wish we could sell them at 50% the regular purchase price…

 

Oh, and the vehicle is now in the shop @ 62 euros:

With 50 % of we will pay the full price of vehicle because bundle is full of useless directives

No wonder you didn't post the price until last minute, this is a travesty.

50% = 31 €. = tank + crew

60% = 25 € = tank

70% = minor discount for your troubles.

I do agree however, this bundles with directives are useless. 
even half their value in bonds would be better. 

BTW, around today isn't it the day that we will know if our bidded-bonds for the clan-reward vehicles are accepted or returned?

The most interesting thing about this marathon, is the 4 french free-BIA crew. Effectively they are as good as girls, minus 20-25battles.

Crew is with 0 xp BIA ?

I like that if you want to sell an improved equipment that was 5000 bonds you get 500.000 silver. Best joke ever.

1) As hard and as many times I read the text, at the web page about the event, it wasn't possible to read somewhere the words "This tank is for free".  I clearly read that this is a Marathon (also, they say that it is a hard one), this means a lot of effort, a lot of battles or money ... This is not a free tank ... and no one states it like this.

 

2) If you don't like this marathon, the only thing you have to do is just play the game as you always do, there is no need to play harder or more ... and even so, you will get some of the prices.

 

3) The 99,90% of the worlds population, even many of the rich ones, cannot buy a Rolls Royce but they do not accuse the RR company for this.

 

:)

 

Finally it is a matter of personal choice, if you want the tank, you have to ...

- Play good and hard.

- Play a lot.

- Play as many as you like, take the discount and pay for the rest of the price.

... or ...

If you don't care at all, just play as usually and soon enough the event will be over ...

... no one forces you to participate to the event.

 

:)

Not sure if you can't understand written texr or you are ignoring what I said - I'm not interested with prizes and whole marathon and also I will not be able to play normally due ridiculous things that happen during such events. I could buy this tank but it's not interesting for me at all.

About message from WG to community in annoucment - it's marked that you can earn tank by making set of missions (it means for free). I understand that this is carrot, but WG don't understand that if carrot is to far it's not interesting.

Aye. And with it being a marathon vehicle it'll stay and that price on future appearances in the shop for some time to come.

IF i CAN GET THE PRICE -70% i ll buy it otherwise not.

As others said directives are useless, if you could sell it for bonds or gold ok, but in current state they are garbage,....not even concidering paying for them,....

 

eekeeboo: how about directives can be sold for half price in bonds?

Interesting is, that in priced bundle we have directives, which are currently obtainable only for bonds. That means WG had set price for bonds before they put in into a bundle and there is increased probability that we will see bonds in premium shop in the future. I'm not happy with that and I hope that I'm wrong.

Wargaming, for the love of god give us the option to buy the tank as is without anything extra and then let us get additional rewards from playing the marathon!

To force us to pay for directives is like you would sel Mercedes in the countries where people don't have the money to eat. Directives are good only for unicums that want to get 3 marks on tanks. For rest of us are zero because we cannot sell them. You changed xp and credit boosters for there useless directives.

I have equipment, i have silver and they force us to pay for these and directives. Bad move from wg. Tank on shop with crew will be better.

WG did say they'd never sell bonds for money, so hopefully they'll stick to that. Admittedly selling bond-only items isn't a big step from directly selling bonds, but we shall see as time passes. I suspect it's more likely the case that people are not making much use of directives, so by bundling them WG hope that we'll all fall in love with the idea, and start using them. However, it misses the fact that mostly people posting on the forum seem to want to save their bonds for buying tanks, either through CW rewards or the forthcoming tanks-for-bonds scheme. The fact that we can't sell directives earned through either the marathon or  Frontline means people have to use them to get rid of them, but personally aside from the sixth sense one, I find them rather uninteresting.

WoT get stuffed !!!!!

 

They loaded the EBR with unnecessary stuff that nobody wants and push the price up to £53 !!!! They are selling tier VIII lights for £25-28 usually..

 

THEY DOUBLED THE PRICE !!!!

 

Now stages 7 and 8 are waaaaay too difficult and time consuming, so most players will make it ti stage 6 and stop there.

 

That means 60% discount and brings EBR price down to the FULL normal price of a tier VIII light !!!

 

I own way too many premiums ... I wouldn't mind buying another one ... but not like that WoT not like that.

 

As a premium player (with 405 days in my premium account!!) I would not buy EBR now, not even with 60% discount.

 

But I am sure there are exceptionally "mature" and clever players out there that already have started pestering their dads to buy them the tank !!!

Thank's for info.

It was possible to purchase these bundles directly in the Premium shop during similar events, but not though the game client.

It still is. That is how I saw it at least since I am at work and not logged into the game ;)
