First i saw this new marathon i was excited, then i looked at the stats and asked myself the question, is it worth it, to sit all day long in front of my computer to get a tank that i will play for the sake of one battle?(not more cause i am gonna sell it, cause it sucks) it is not worth it, and to pay money for this tank is even more hilarious

Once this Marathon started, I stopped playing this game immediately.

 

Now when it's over, I think it's time to go back to "normal gameplay" days I guess?

It is not moral to play that tank.

Can I rephrase that with this is your last chance to get my money :)

No offense but this time round the grind was way to hard for the reward.

These type of events have naturally changed over time and have become a little more difficult and take many more hours of play.

This is perfectly fine I get it you want to balance it so the majority have to pay something.

Early events I managed 70% or better discount which is fantastic later events I was topping out at 60% still good as that means you get the tank for a little under the average price for the tank without the extras.

 

This event, Stage 4 you wanted me to deal 4200 damage 4 times well for me at least that's not going to happen too often I certainly cannot say I will do that in a days play maybe not even 2.

So I grind the points np took a couple of days but ok

 

Stage 5 Be the top player on both teams 9 times and deal 3200 damage, this was for me a step too far it said the top players in the game will do this, everyone else might as well just play lower more fun tiers to get the base xp.

Again 28,000 base xp that is a real slog, ok I have had games where I get 1000 base xp but realistically 600 is more my average.

If the enemy are good or we suck then I might get 300.

I did it but it took most of the time remaining in the event.I would need 2 more full days to have a hope of getting 50%.

650 base xp 15 times ok oops no its 850 base xp or 30,000 base xp ok I can do that but not in the time left.

For a player that can carry games on a regular basis its possible, for the average player nope.

Its 2 maybe 3 days where skill got it done and 7 or 8 days of pure grind.

 

All the above to me is irrelevant because I would happily buy a good premium I think I will enjoy playing.

I don't think this is it.

220 pen maybe autoreloader yeah Ill buy it .

Someone said its a tier 8 cromwell I think they are right except its a very big cromwell probably easy to hit.

200 damage was off putting too.

DPM only counts if and only if all shots penetrate at the end of the day its pen is lacking its damage per shot is below average for a 90mm gun at tier 8.

 

Other than those limitations I would buy it tomorrow even though I would be a Pinata in many games :)

Fun event as I say imo a little too grindy for the reward, I will probably get it in this years loot boxes and be terrible playing it.

Right back to battlepass I have to get that final token and then decide which reward tanks to buy.

Then its wait and see what the next TOTT will be.

Ain't gonna happen.

Your constant focus on easy and dirty milking of the playerbase combined with the arrogant and discriminating nature of Wargaming has closed my wallet for good.
On top of that the game has lost the balance balance has gone worse when it comes to teams, tanks and maps. Sadly Wargaming do crapto solve it. Instead Wargaming focus on non existing issues e.g. HE nerf. Total ignoring the problems that is written so many posts about and over and over again explained by CC.
These "challenges" are only for people without a life or top players, the rest of us are forced to pay if we want the tank. Totally lame.

No thanks WG :unsure:

don't appreciate your ever harder marathons where im stuck in a small room sitting in front of a small PC screen 4 ~ 5 hours a day/evening every day for fun?

its not fun WG its hard work just slogging it out for a 'discount' 

 

Also ..  i have dozens and dozens of your Premium Tanks in my Garage ~ just how many do i really need?

and more importantly ~

 

each 'new' T8 Premium is only good or stays 'in todays game meta' for maybe 1 year maybe a little longer?

then its gradually 'power crept' by newer more powerful T8 Premiums & newer Tech tree Tanks, until its not 'in the game meta' anymore and so in time joins the 'other dozens of dust-gathering and used to be good/ but no more T8 Premiums'  in the Garage

and they all cost "real money my salary" lol i dread to think of the many, many hundreds and hundreds of £££ of unused Premiums in my garage

 

have a nice day everyone

You can keep it WarGaming.

I'm at stage 9 and I don't plan on playing the 10-20 games it would take to unlock the vehicle.

 

I'd much rather have some actual fun, but I unlocked all the tier X's I want so... why would I grind for it?

Regarding paying for it, hah! Hilarious. I'll but it for 70Euros if you guys would be more transparent regarding the development situation and what not.

same here. hope that the goldspamming tryhard-kids got tired and have to recover for a while after this marathon. also, my WT premium runs out today, so there's a 20% chance I'll be playing 1-2 battles every other day (or until the goldspam gets to heavy or MM and RNG go full "WG-working-as-intended" again). thinking of it, maybe I'll abstain until there are at least some improvements actually being worked on by WG, and hidden soviet buffs being undone (HE "rework"... ).

I am also not putting much hope into FL, as there must be a reason why we have to wait for it for so long. It probably took WG so long to find ways to mess it up (reduce rewards, reduce credit income, make it a 2-tiers game mode,...).

 

td;dr: WG, nobody likes what you are doing. Improve much?

Shameless cash-grab or ubergrind, for a really meh tank.
Still, I'm getting used to it now, so I'll just ignore it - like the rest

I shall give it a pass..... When the Marathon started, i took it very easy on the game with only a few battles as i was too eager to get playing my new games, Mass Effect Legendary and Cyberpunk 2077, both great games and way more enjoyable as you dont have to put up with the Special Needs player base in this game :D

true, the ongoing secrecy cannot be a good sign. seems they've given up on the project and a making their decisions on a day-by-day milking optimisation basis. WG could be going full WoWp/WotGenerals/Caliber right now (= no promotion, no development, just dumbing down and switching the milking machine to overdrive until server shutdown).
