My bad. My son just explained the exp system to me. However, I did have a problem with exp on my 110, which I reported and was told to uninstall xvm and try again. I did and it worked.  So maybe thats the end of it.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Purchasing the bundle gives you the full pack of rewards and automatically checks all event battle missions as completed. So you won’t be able to access them once you have the bundle.

 

If we purchase the bundle, do we also get the silver value of the Progetto as that is the final reward?

From the wording no, as you are no longer eligible for the missions, you are not eligible for the final reward either.

 

Edit: Though any levels you did already will drop the price of your purchasing the tank so you could do 5 levels and get it half off as well as it'll give you the rest of the rewards that aren't the tank.

Fixed, I meant 2 weeks but had mistyped 4. 

 

Also, what do you mean by grind out a tier 10? It is a tier 8 premium tank, not tier 10. 

 

I meant it's roughly how much xp you need to unlock a tier 10

What if you grind out the whole thing for free and THEN purchase the bundle?  Do you get all the extra goodies twice, plus Gold for the tank?

It says the missions arent able to be completed if you buy the bundle. So how are you going to get the silver value as a reward for the mission if you already have bought the tank?

Do a big think there brother.

You do a big think.

Read what he said, he wants to GRIND out the missions, and get the tank free.
Then BUY the tank from the shop, and see if he gets everything but silver for the tank.

I would suspect, completing the missions, will result in removal of the purchase option from the portal/store, as it would be a 100% discount - and you'd already received the bundle.

 

That's an interesting thought, though.  Ultimately, the package is probably going to cost in excess of $80, given all of the additional items.

Sadly I don't have  info on pricing yet, but I did get confirmation that the purchasing option will not be available once the marathon is completed. It is not possible to complete the marathon then purchase a duplicate bundle for Credit Compensation. (Also doing so would be the equivalent of just converting an equal amount of Gold to Credits, so not really necessary to buy the vehicle for Credit Compensation)

It's a quirk of how this marathon works, previous marathons functioned by allowing you to purchase individual "tokens" rather than a bundle that will complete all remaining stages. 

There were some small quality-of-life issues with the tokens for the T25 Pilot Marathon, for example, wherein players received Gold compensation for the tokens they purchased, instead of the vehicle, because the tokens were credited upon login. Some players finished their session on the last day of the marathon, closed the game client, bought their tokens on the Premium shop and went to bed. Since the tokens from their purchase didn't get credited to their accounts until after they logged in, they didn't get applied to the mission which had already concluded, hence the alternate Gold compensation.

Needless to say our folks in Support (myself included, at the time) were able to sort it out and get the qualifying players their vehicle instead, but it's a frustrating thing to go through as a player in the first place. We anticipate the Italian Challenge will run more smoothly.

Hello Everyone!

 

With the Italian Challenge on the horizon, we wanted you to give you a little breakdown on how the event is going to work along with some FAQs.

 

Event duration:

FAQ:

 

Can I purchase the Progretto?

  • Yes! During the event you can choose to purchase a special bundle that will automatically complete all ten stages.  In addition to receiving the tank, you will receive all the stages awards.
    • For each stage already completed, you will receive a 10% discount on the total price of the bundle.

How can I earn the Progretto?

  • There are two ways to earn the Progretto by playing, so you have some options.
    • Earning Mastery Badges/Medals
      • Tier X only
      • Medals/Awards/XP quests, along with the amount needed will vary from each stage.
    • Earning experience
      • Tier VI-X only
      • Base tank xp only
      • As the stages progress, the amount of base xp required for each stage will increase.

Does the stages have set times to be completed?

  • Nope!  You can complete them at your own pace, just as long the event is still running.

Does boosters/premium account go towards my progress?

  • Nope!  Only base tank XP and medals/awards will be counted toward progress.  

Does only wins count towards the event?

  • No, wins are not required to progress through the stages, though it does help with earning experience.

Can I skip stages?

  • Nope, you either have to complete it by playing or purchase the entire bundle.

Total BASE XP needed = 312,000.

 

312,000 BASE XP divided by 14 days =  22,286 BASE XP needed daily

 

22,286 BASE XP  =  44.57 battles needed daily (if you average about 500 BASE XP per battle)

 

44.57 battles multiplied by 9 minutes = 6.6855 hours per day of playing WoT to accomplish this mission.

 

In other words, this " Free Tank" Mission is a complete SHAM.  This mission is DESIGNED to make you feel committed, so that they can then hook and crook you.  A classic "Bait and Switch" designed from the start to have you BUY the tank.

so players that pay for a premium account for the additional XP (and credits) per game don't get to use it in these contest!!!   so why do we need to pay for premium time if it will not give premium account players an advantage in these contest. I don't care if you take away the 2x (5x) bonus from the points earned in the contest, but the contest XP should be based on your account type and personal reserves used (that cost us in game time to earn or money to buy)  and any addition points awarded for courageous performance in battle. I think its time for all players who have premium accounts to just let them expire and not renew them, until their is some real advantage to having them. these are the players that pay for this game to be played by all the free-to-play players, and pay the employees of war gaming so we can all play. if no advantage is given to premium account holders then why pay for them.

 

 

 

P.S. I do not currently have a prem. acct. nor do I plan to pay for one anytime soon. so this is not about me crying for more, its just what is fair for the players that have them.

Whats funny and sad is that it wasnt always this way, back in 2015-2016 they had a month long mission for the e25. And I got it all completed on the first week because i initially thought the event was going to run as long as this one will. And to top it off, IIRC, the missions were far more doable than this.

 

Nice try WG. you had me interested in trying to get this tank for free at first, but seeing the requirements, they are just way too much for a casual. It's a major whammy that its based on base xp and not total xp from battles, this isn't world of warships where the Base XP is still doable. Even worse that premium time users dont get an advantage here either, and not to mention that boosters will not aid in this.

 

In short? I'll Pass.

I'll just farm up free XP in WoWP to run up the italian tech tree once its released... :sceptic:

So casual players will just have to buy the tank then, since this will be impossible for the people who can only play 1-2 hours a day. Thanks for nothing Wargaming.
