Polish WoT info page suggests Bat.-Châtillon Bourrasque will be the next marathon reward. Apparently they found a graphic with Bourrasque challenge and this vehicle with unique style.

 

Not complaining, the tank looks sexy AF and I will likely grind/buy it despite all drawbacks it has.

Nothing specified in the article. Frontline returns in March, so I guess earliest April?

 

EDIT: EBR marathon started on 21st of Feb last year. That was Thursday. It could even start this week...

Doesn't look too bad. Seems like a fun thing if it manages to hit its shots. Emptying the 720 damage load in 2 seconds makes for low exposure time and it's fairly speedy so fun can be had. 

 

edit: we'll probably see some "1100 dpm" jokes though

They just based in on the fact they found a banner for it hidden in the current game files that could promote it. Tank has not been added to the client yet. So if it's coming, I suspect it won't be this month.

Definately unique playstyle. Wheeled vehicle disguised as a medium. I'm sure I will like it, if the gun isn't too derpy.

Considering the marathons are shorter and shorter with the last one being 10 days. 26th to 8th is plenty of time.

Got a link? Out of curiosity I checked both the current patch and the CT's styles scripts and didn't see any mention of the unique style mentioned in the OP. There's two new styles with 1.8 ("Korean Military" and "Fool's Day") that aren't in the current client, but other than that I didn't see anything new (if it was a unique to the Bourrasque style, it should be under the French styles, but it ends at the AMX 50B 3D Style).

There was a mention of a unique skin on most articles about it. But, as the tank is yet to be added to the game. I doubt the skin is either.

 

Instead, the story was that they found a banner with the tank and skin on it. Suspecting it could be for an event.  It was first mentioned at rykoszet.info as per usual.

 

Spoiler

I liked 18 better. 21 to load 2 shells is pretty weak. :sceptic:

Is the aim time and accuracy still horrible?

 

Also when does CWs finish, thought that had more days to run so would seem odd if it started this week. (though I suppose it was postponed and wasn't supposed to be on this week)

 

For a discount I might pick it up, but on paper there seems a lot wrong with that tank (unless they have buffed it), poor aim time, poor accuracy, bad pen on both rounds (240 APCR vs tier 10s with 0.4 accuracy, hmmmn 'fun';), poor gun depression, low hit points for a medium and overmatchable/HE pennable armour all over pretty much.

 

Mobility, burst potential/speed, DPM, and supposedly very good camo are the strong points, but it's typical WG odd design, you have something that is paper with no armour and low hit points, with great camo, which all suggest medium to long range work, but then is very bad at firing from long range (bad accuracy, bad pen and horrible aim time). 

 

EDIT: Oh they nerfed the reload as well, so that has gone from good to bad. 

 

Yeh not a huge amount going for this tank at the moment IMO.

So... it's probably one of those 30% discount marathons.... I am collecting those discount coupons. They are too precious to spend :D

Do you place no value upon your time?  An opportunity cost still applies even though no money changes hands.

They nerfed the DPM to 1835 :( 

 

I really don't know what kind of a role this tank should play. Guess it's an exclusively frontline tank now, with it's mobility, burst and pen. 

 

The unique style is called 1998 ZZ 10 - are we getting Zizou as a commander?

Looks good. Maybe one could scare some people off by making them think it's an EBR 105. :child:
