blah... got all for the T34 and 8 for the IS6. I work 60 hours a week so after commute/washing up I only have a few hours. Even then I'm a walking zombie. Funny but buying all of them is about 2 OT work hours... I just want to be part of the shinanaggins.

12/12/12

germans using tier 9/10 tanks and a couple progression

 

american/brit using the T14 and Excelsior. preferential mm makes this easy. 

russia using the valentine II and Churchill III. again, preferential mm makes this easy.

 

the win missions are the hardest so far due to a lot of fail teams. but the kills went quick for russia, slow for american/brit. i usually average a little under 2 kills per game with those, so 3 is rare ish, luckily didnt have to win, so did a suicide run to get a 3rd kill to finish.

 

i am quite annoyed that i am seeing many people holding their shots to steal kills. thats just bad game play. one to the point that he let an ally die rather than shoot a mid health target, he was waiting for a kill shot only. sad.

The wins are easy, you just need to play low tiers and toon 

Is not easy when the bad streak hits you. I gave up on the 7 win one. Platoon with 2 others and was only able to win 1. The horrible teams we were getting was not worth the hassle. We look at the the map and half the team gone in a blink of an eye. That's when I said no more lol.

day 12 both american and german and day 11 of russian because didnt know there was a marathon first day and it was to late to finish russian before restart

 

as for missions they are easy the problem is that the MM system knows you are doing a mission it knows what tanks you are playing and whether you are spamming gold rounds and will actively give you poor battles

 

load tier 10 arty for german damage to get grand battle ?? nope MM will give you city maps that are small and you get spotted because enemy spotting distance is entire map at spawn

load any tank and you will always be bottom tier unless tier 10 scout in which case every german tier 10 battle is a grand battle because very hard to do massive damage in scout on grand battle ..great exp and spotting but damage not so much

this marathon isnt bad if you got millions of credits stock piled because you pretty much cant grind credits at this stage in marathon and do all 3 missions ..just not enough time in the day

who is spending money ?? this is all about "not" spending money just investing time ... Im looking forward to trading in all but the german tank towards other tanks because already won the T34 and IS6 years ago and never drive IS6 because you got to spam to much gold rounds to pen and without premium account just breaking even is pointless when i can make 60k a battle in lowe or T34 and never break into gold ammo without premium

When these tanks got spoiled I wanted to go for mutz, becuase I don't really like heavies, but when I found out that each mission can be completed only with tanks of certain nations, I hopped into T34 train because most of the tanks I own and play are US/GB/FR.

So far I'm at 12 / 12.

My secret strategy is/was to complete seemingly more difficult mission of getting 12 wins to have a buffer, because I fear that those "easier" missions that I would easily complete on any other day in an hour without a problem might be actually too difficult when half of the server will be trying to complete them.. cough.. get 5 kills in one game.. cough.

And the team which is helping me with completion is: Hellcat, Jumbo, AC4Exp and Covenanter.

Got it all done up to this point with three more days to go except for the IS6 where I got screwed thanks to the missions being bugged half the time. I am dreading having to worry about the wins cringe cringe cringe.

 

Missions bugged ?  I think you mean , not completed ?

the missions are really easy with right tanks, ive gotten them all done with a few hours gameplay except the day where we needed 10 wins, that took longer.  I just spam tier 10 tds for the missions where you only need damage, for the wins where you need high xp or high damage i go on my tier 8 premium tds, they can get 2 or 3 kills easily without much work.  Overall the missions have been a breeze, doing 30k damage in one nation is crazy easy when you have all the tier 10 tds.

But - 12/12

T34B - 12/12

IS6B - 11/12

 

Overall not too bad, but the time factor is making me consider stopping the IS. At this point though I have the luxury of doing just one or two per day, so I'll probably continue for all of them.

12/12 on the Mutz, I have an is6 and 34 already so I don't need the black ones. Have done a few here and there when time allowed. Keeping it fun by rotating through rheinmetal, leopard, e100, maus,stb1, and kranvan.

I'm 12 of 15 on both the T-34B and the IS-6B missions.  I gave up on Day One for the German tank missions, because I realized right away I don't have ANY - ZERO - NONE - NADA of the "high alpha" tanks required to complete those missions.

 

The missions have certainly been a grind - the past 3 days I've literally spent ALL DAY playing this game to get them done.  And I expect I will have to do the same yet again today.

 

On Friday, I was a raging mess, I was not a happy camper at all.  Since I'm a "free-to-play" person, the only way I'll ever get any Premium tanks in my garage is if I complete these mission grinds... so I knew I had to "git er dun".

 

By Sunday evening, I was smiling however.  Obviously I've completed each day's mission so far, and so when I got the last of my "3 kills" missions done yesterday, I gave myself a big pat on the back.  A job well done!!

12/12 for T34B which is my only target.  A bit concerned about playing when I am visiting my folks this weekend so I decided to play for an hour this morning to see if I can do today's 15 wins. Went 6/9 battles so I think I'm going for the other 9 tonight.  

I would hate to rely upon the 20th mission as my 15th point and then have crappy games which would mean missing the last point.  I hope I'm going to be done on Thursday.
