What's the fastest way you found to get through these missions?

Playing normally and not thinking about the mission? If you cant do 500 damage in any tank, above tier 6 without having to do something special to get it done, or yolo suicide then you shouldn't be getting a tier 8 premium anyway, let alone for free.

playing normally so you are not a burden for your team perhaps?

doing 500 dmg is like.. entering the game in any tier 6 and up normal play and should be done in 25-30 games

and as added bonus; your win% and wn8 would rise slowly up unlike suicidal arty plays that give you deep red xvm camo if going on for long

The problem is not doing 500 damage, the problem is doing it 25 times fast enough to get through the marathon time-frame (well, 65 times if you count both stage 5 and 8)

I agree it's a bad solution for the team. However, 65 normal games take 6.5 hours - if one can get the same result quicker it's a significant time saver

 

WG should have put less missions but with a win (50%) or survive condition (25%?)

 

As about wn8 - who cares...

i have a bigger issue with the minimum 500xp stage simply because you have no way of charting your progress in game. You think you have a good game with 2 kills and 2.3k dmg with 600 spotting and then you check the results and you get less than 500 xp for it.

Play literally any tier 6 and higher tank? If doing 500 damage is hard you should quit this game forever.

why the wolverine? wouldn't the M4 be better? im not that in the know when it comes to low tiers and derps but i'd much rather be in the M4, more HP, Not open topped, better turret traverse etc

500xp basically means a win - and not having been completely useless in the game. On a loss one must do well beyond average to get 500 xp.

did most marathons playing casually with the time i had not caring much about powergrinding it as fast as possible and just paying for the last 10-20%, didnt seem worth to me to powergrind it, better to have fun while playing

But being useless when doing 500 damage is fine when yoloing when it's done? 25 times is not an issue unless you get 15 min snail games. You can easily do 6-8 battles an hour doing normal grinds. It's not like it will take days. Your team mates are gonna love you for the 50 battle one.

I suspect for most people that don't have hours of free time each day, marathons and powergrinding are pretty much synonyms.

I wasn't saying yoloing after 500HP is fine, I was just commenting on what it took to get the mission. The 500XP mission is better because it forces you to participate in a game (you need to win or else carry hard to make sure you got the 500XP). For the 500HP mission, there's no point to do 6-8 battles/hour when you can do 12-15, and that without any significant level of concentration (ie play arta)

Thanks for being an arse and ruining the game for the rest of us.

There's a couple of clan bobs that like to boast about their skills in it and i just wanted to try i tout. Plus i think it's better DPM and aiming time

I've seen the player in my team in his T71 DA with this kind of attitude, claiming "500 dmg and goodbye" in chat during the countdown.

He was "goodbyed" near the spawn by some ally with 0 dmg. So one guy out, second one turned blue and banned.

Guys, don't play online multiplayer games this way.

We have won, though.

If they don't have the time in the day the majority will have a job, so then you should have money. So spending hours wasting time ( ie yoloing ) seems very very counterproductive use of free time to me. Or perhaps just play the game and try to "enjoy" the time you spend on it.

 

As posted many times before the marathons are optional not mandatory.

 

We had another poster inform us he had nearly played 300 game over the weekend to get the free tank, then complain he doesn't like the tank as he usually plays agile paper tanks..... LOL

 

Could he not think of a better way to waste his time?

I combined the missions with credit grind. Grinded 20 million while doing them. And for these missions, you can do that, or you can not ruin your team's game. I hate to do 500 and suicide, that makes me feel bad. A 2 hour booster gets me 20 battles, then another 5 and mission done.
