No event tab up for it yet. So wonder if the missions will be stages like we have seen of late with different missions, or just a flat out XP grind.

Just hope they thought a little better about the missions than the last few times.

Eeh, a bit disappointed it is not the E75 TS, but this one is interesting as well.
Looking at the tanks gg stats it looks like a heavium, with good DPM/alpha combination and good-ish mobility(terrain resistances kinda murder it), but with unreliable armor(it has the typical 'murican tumor cupola, but at least it gets 400m base view range for it). If i play enough to get a good discount i will buy it.

Perhaps this one comes with those 'improvements', like making you have to look for some hidden spot on the UI or web where you have to activate the mission and you will only get to realize this at the point when half the marathon time is gone....

Not interested in heavy tanks so won't be chasing this marathon with much effort. It also has one of those tumor cupolas on its head. Still, I'm sure there will be some nice marathon stage goodies to bag for just playing a few battles as normal every other day.... that said, if it comes with BIA crew just like the TS-5 did, that would be a different story for my level of interests in this tonk lol.

Well....I am a bit disappointed it was not E75 TS this time around :(

 

This year we already had a US marathon for TS-5, and because of this fact I had my hopes high for a German marathon. Oh well.

 

Free tank is a free tank so no real reason to complain :)

Kinda hope it is some 'do amount of damage with all countries' marathon like we had before.

personally the tank in question does not seem to me anything exceptional, I was hoping for the e75 ts

 

But a premium American heavy that is not t34 is fine for me , and ofc is for free.

Makes you wonder what WG really ment on their streams with regards to what they wanted to do with it. As Eekeeboo overspoke and said it was for something soon vs for sale.

Indeed. But makes me wonder if WG wanted to do it sooner, as again with regards to the NA CC last month. No matter, more free stuff is always nice.

Let's hope for a 'smart' marathon. That is to say, a marathon that doesn't promote stupid play and/or endless grinding.

 

Nah, who am I kidding. WG delights in marathons that make sure the servers become borderline unplayable. Too bad this is a tank I want.

Same, the cupola puts me off, the rest of the tank looks average to decent, so don't think I would part full price for it, but equally it doesn't look bad so if I can get to about 60-70% then I'll probably pick it up.

Oh goody, another marathon I'll probably barely participate in since its a better value for your time to get a job and buy it outright.

 

Btw, the terrain resists on this thing are outright horrible.

My thoughts too. Was pretty sure next marathon was going to be the German Challenge.

Looks like I was right when I said marathon tank! :D 

Except the German M48, lol.
