All,

 

I’m planning to tackle all three marathons.  I’ll be streaming each time I work on it even if it’s just for a short time to document the journey.  I’ll post here when I’m up and running each time.

 

Plan is to front load as many missions as possible and clean up as required if I miss a few.

 

Once I’m done I’ll seek mental help and marriage counseling...

 

As usual when I stream I’ll discuss what I’m doing and why though that will be colored by spamming for the Marathon especially in the later stages.

 

My streams are saved so you can check out any you missed.

 

Additionally I’ll post here the progress and any inside info on how to knock this out.

 

See you out there and I’ll get started tonight.  Assume the crash position... 

 

Cheers,

 

Guido

 

 

Edit;  Here's a link to my YouTube announcement here with the details of my plan.

Guido you should rename the thread as a Triathlon instead of marathon because it's 3

events in one...

 

Anyways I'd love to see this when I'm done.  Doing all 3 too...

My condolences on your upcoming divorce.

 

But you'll have 3 shiny new premiums in the garage!

Will be lots of threads about it but feel free to add any useful lessons learned here.  Good luck to you as well!

I'm so jealous. With all this work I have to do, I'm doubtful I can even complete one of the marathons. I have a busy life and wish I had the time to burn on stuff like this. This would be amazing for a F2P like me. I wish I could get a Tier VIII Premium. LOL And some of them are nation specific. If it was total damage for any tanks, I might've had a chance, but this? No. :(

The black mutz will be a piece of cake as it's not team dependant, I'm worried about the other two though.

 

Good luck.

Well with the missions being easy for the first few days, I'd take it easy after you get them

done.  You don't wanna burn out at the end...

Probably can't catch the stream, but I subscribe to your channel and believe that you break down the game and teach how to play better than anyone else I've watched.

Good luck! 

 

I'm going for the T34 and the IS6. I'm strictly F2P and the only tier 8 prem I have is the CDC (gift). I would go for the mutz, but I have no czech tanks, and my highest german tank is the luchs.

Hmmm, I have perhaps not researched the possible effects of this endeavor.

You’re doing it raw that’s for sure.  Keep us posted on your progress.  It’ll be interesting to see how your experience is to mine (premium account and tons of tanks from all the nations).

Czech tanks aren't a option for the mutz missions though..

only German, Sweden and Japan.

All,

 

I will edit the first post with spoilers to keep it reasonable and show my results.  I also added a link to my YT announcement and initial game plan (also here).

 

Good luck to all.

 

Cheers,

 

Guido

Good luck.  I don't think this is even worth the effort in the slightest.
