There were two marathons since I came back to the game and I don't know exactly how many I missed on my few-years break from world of tanks so I have no idea how frequent they are.

 

We had EBR marathon and then TS-5 marathon roughly month later (?), so I wonder do you think we gonna have another one any time soon?

 

What was last premium tank we could get for free before EBR marathon?

Gosh I hope not.
Gameplay is pretty bad normally... Add in a marathon and it really goes down the drain.

iirc it was SU-130PM back in November.

 

Rumors say the next marathon will be for a Czech medium with autoloader they're supertesting.

Since WG changed the marathon format to a sales-event we had:

- Progetto (Italian challenge, April 2018)

- Caernarvon AX (British challenge, September 2018)

- SU 130PM (Winter challenge, December 2018)

- EBR 75 P2W bobby car (Challenge on wheels, February 2019)

- TS-5 (American challenge, April 2019)

 

So next might be in June if they keep the more recent frequency, or later if they realized that this has been too much.

wouldn't feel to bad, the missions were so long that you'd would have had to take a month off work and played 18 hours a day to get them. without opening your wallet of course.

I wouldn't mind another tier5 marathon for a bit of variation, like for the T34S and the T25... :child:

Maybe that French Wolverine...

If you're gonna count replacement tanks I think you are forgetting the light tanks

No idea about that, but your list misses the Pz T25 we could win last september (the 25 million thing). :great:

I'm fairly certain when the new lights were released, having a T8 meant you got your T8 with crew and equipment moved to T9 and you got the new T8 for free with no equipment and 50% crews.

Hmmm so you got a techtree tank for free instead of having to grind it. Dont know if  would call that an extra free tank. I am in doubt about that one ....

I doubt I will buy any more tanks in these "Grind for a discount" marathons.

Well, considering both campaigns are stale for me with no chance whatsoever to progress anymore, Marathons are the only thing which may keep me interested, so yes, bring it on!

Well you can count the current Frontlines season as a marathon as it includes premium tank rewards... actual premium not reward ones with regular credit income. The grind is awful however

They've had some marathons in the summer to even out the inevitable slump of players during that season. 

 

I wouldn't mind a CZ autoloader, if the rumors are true. 

 

I already got T-44-100 and TS-5 for free and iirc I payed 6e for POGetto. I've also got some lower tiers for free at some point. Missing the Pilot don't bother me but that SU marathon stings a bit. Don't care for EBR.

Oh no pls god no. Although that would probably get those prem ammos and prem accos going.

Yeah as you can see on the list they have been rather frequent the past year. As we had more the last 12 months then we had the last 5 years before that on tier 8 prems. As then we have had the T-44-100, WZ-111 and the T-25 pilot across 3 years before that. IS-6 was the first one back in 2013? Then the T26E4 about a year later after the nerf iirc. You also had the FV 4202 marathon if you owned it as a tier X before the Cent AX came. 

 

Tho there have been a fair few tier 5 and 6 mini-marathons too. The T-34S about 10 months ago, and the T-34-85M before that again to name some.
