IMO he talks about XPs with boosters and not base XPs. Otherwise there is no way he was able to do it in that many battles in a row with his results...

 

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.;)

Quite a lot of grinding missions at the moment with Front Lines & this.  WG must have worked out it's good way to boost player battle numbers but it does start to feel like a full time job.

 

Sunk cost...

Win conditions? Why? You never learn do you... Making the individual grind a "team" effort. Absolutely terrible idea... or are you trying to frustrate players into buying the tank? I'll rather skip it thanks.

 

Sort of, yeah. It's really annoying, but the objective of the game remains to win the match. The condition means you have to consider the team as well as your mission.

OMFG i didnt even see the basecapping secundary missions, do u know how much cursing will go on because of idiots sitting in cap while their teammates dieing on the battlefield  and the team loses because in stead of 4 vs 2 its 2 vs 2 with two idiots sitting in the cap ?  now SPONSORED BY WG ...  u guys dont play ur own game, that u have clearly proven with this marathon objectives, clueless , just clueless  .

 

Basecapping? "Base XP" is not the same as the points you get for capping… :sceptic:

Tasks are so difficult that you are trying to bring people to a certain stage and buy them forcibly. You must simplify tasks !!!

Another tier VIII marathon, huh. While it is pretty cool to have marathons like this, it feels so much like a ripoff when you need to play 6-7 stages just to be able to buy the tank at its non-bundled price tag. And looks like WarGaming really doesn't want to give out those discounts, since tiers 4, 6, 7 and 9 take the most time and effort to complete, as shown earlier in this thread. Instead of putting missions of steadily increasing difficulty/time requirement they decided to put these huge walls to overcome at certain points of the marathon. Those with the least time will be stuck at 30% discount, moderately active might get to 50% discount, but it takes some dedicated grinding to get that 80% discount, and two weeks of dedicating your everyday life to playing this game if you want it for free. 4-5 hours of WoT daily just isn't a realistic goal for most players, even 2-3 hours.

I miss the marathons that actually could be completed without killing your interest in the game through a horrible grindfest. Long-term missions like this often make every lost battle and even bottom 5 won battles taste even more bitter than usual.

These marathons are clever marketing tricks for new premium tanks, but ultimately they just show the greed of WarGaming. The marathons aren't about giving away free stuff for the fans and players, they're all about getting us to stay in the game despite its big flaws, and get us to spend money at the premium shop.

And damn they're good at it.

Well, I don't like playing with wheeled vehicles, no need to get this tank,  therefore I will not attend the event.

 

Anyway, thx WG and good luck for others who will attend the event ;)

While adding new game mechanics is nice, at the end of the day I'm not going to waste my life grinding an armored car in 'world of tanks'.

So thanks, but no thanks. I'll enjoy the warm spring sun, fresh air and cold beers instead.

 

Cheers.

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 ;)

I want the vehicle so will do what I always do part play part buy, really don't see the problem.

It looks like you can complete the missions in any vehicle if you had to do it in a wheeled light the games would be full of them and a complete nightmare.

 

Looks like I will be working on the Object 260 and Excalibur Personal Missions.

While also doing the wheeled missions, doing them in a Chinese tanks to get those Celebration bonuses while grinding those lines and getting crew bonuses as well.

Stage 1: 3k Base XP = 5 games (5)

Stage 2: 7 wins top10 = 21 battles (26)

Stage 3: 15k Base XP = 23 games (49)

Stage 4: 25 wins top10 = 75 games (124)

Stage 5: 30k Base XP = 45 games (169)

Stage 6: 35 wins top10 = 105 games (274)

Stage 9: top 10 90x = 135 games (589)

Stage 10: 45k Base XP = 66 games (655)

Thanks for putting that in perspective.

 

40 hrs work for 70% off?  It had better be bloomin expensive to start with.

 

I have a cunning plan, I'm going to drive a real car to Belgium and back instead.:great:

Why are these missions so hard? How many players actually get the tank for free? People literally have to be playing only this game and not spend any time anywhere else for 2 weeks. Smh wg some kids will probably skip school for this because they can't pay for the bundle. Make some easier missions for lower tier tanks perhaps because this isn't acceptable to a normal person.
