I have done most of the tier 8 premium marathons and I think this is the best designed one yet. In the past the targets were enormous and required consistent hours and hours of grind each and every day. Every time I have done one previously I have been burnt out and quit playing for 2 or 3 months afterwards. 

 

This mission is different.  It has varied goals each day. Some are harder than others, but none have been impossible (I have a job and family and I still have managed to do it - and I have a rule that I don't play when the kids are awake). The missions appear to have been timed according to the day of the week with easier to complete ones on week days. 

 

And to top it off it is only 2 weeks long as opposed to a month.

 

And the 2 extra days and tokens mean if IRL gets in the way I don't lose out on the tank.

 

All in all I think WGing have done a really good job with this marathon mission. Well played GG.

I can manage that but having done the t-44-100 marathon in only 11 days without buying tokens I will be ok lol.

Lie

Not true

You do know we can see the tanks you have driven and their stats?  Also it would be extremely unlikely that you accomplished such a feat with 1069 games.  I call BS.

yesterday's mission wasn't all that easy. most of the ones that have a "win" component aren't becuase you can do everything the play of 14 others dictates if you get it done.

 

I didn't bother with yesterdays after serveral friends/clan mates complained about it. Then having to work and then head to the ER afterwards didn't feel like fighting hte game to get top 3 in xp and win in a hour before bed. can take not getting one mission done.

He's an alt.  I can't remember the main's name, but he was all the time complaining about passive players, and had average or slightly above stats.

When you think about it... IF it gets too hard in the end -- you can actually skip up to -five- missions and get a Tier VIII Premium Tank for $12.45 (5 Tokens) -- think about that a second that's less than $20; still totally worth it even if you don't get 13 missions!  So far I'm on track to get it for Free!!!  We'll see, but I do have twelve bucks if I need it; a Tier VIII Premium for under $20 - yeah still a great deal either way !!  :great:

This. So far, sure, we can agree that this has been the best marathon because of reasonable requirements that are geared towards rewarding good play, not just a huge amount of hours spent playing, and because there have been small daily rewards which are not bad, especially when you add all of them up. 

 

However, I have no idea if the requirements will stay reasonable or not for the remaining 6 days starting tomorrow.

If I get it cheap enough  I might buy it just to sell for the silver credits.

Very bad idea. Wait until WG implements trade-in like on the RU server, and trade it for gold

I need 5 more and if I get 0 of those I pay $12.50 for a tier 8 Premium.  Even if the rest of the missions are as big of a pain as the weekend missions I am happy throwing some scratch their way.

Basically, I'm just saying that if it ended today I would think it was a success independent of what happens over the next 6 days.  We got a huge discount and some good daily prizes.

 

Only time I've ever picked up a tier 8 premium even close to this cheap was when I failed to sell my rental Mutz and that was $20 for the SchwarzMutz.

Yea I Despise passives who wait around not doing anything and it is not just TDs though td meta players in other classes almost always cause their teams to lose as they funnel vision and allow the other team to win the map ect. As for stats that kinda doesn't matter anymore as for some players they have been very cheap for the effort so a lot get to dark green or teal without building any real skill so now days you get hordes of idiots that are dependent on mods like auto aim+ and are clueless about any proper aiming. The things most purples have to say about everyone below them couldn't be more true. I learned to like having xvm camo and not getting auto focused by the mouth breathers is nice until there is a red or orange tide then I stick out a bright light in the middle of the night.
