I've got to give some props to WG on the Italian Challenge, I think they hit a homerun with this one.

     Giving us an opportunity at a tank that would make them money has to be a tough decision but the right one in my opinion(probably a lot of money, too).  Looking at the details for the marathon, it should give us some flexibility on how we grind out the xp or win it though tier X battles.  The tier X battles will be challenging though, probably be a lot of good players at tier X for next few weeks, it might be a good strategy to grind out XP at tier 9 and just skip the tier X fast lane to avoid frustration.

     The only thing that could possibility be screwed up on this marathon is the 100% cost of the tank bundle, if it's over $100 then it might be overpriced at a 50% discount for the casual player that only grinds to stage 5 or 6.

Regardless, looking forward to it, should be fun.

You do realize that it's 'base' XP and that you can't use personal reserves.

Trying to get the 312,000 base XP in a 2 week period will be challenging.

The devil will (as always) be in the details.

 

The T44-100, for example, was/is wildly overpriced compared to similar premiums; if the newest tank follows this model, that would be poor form.

 

If the pricing is reasonable, then I agree - fair play to WG!

Given all the stuff that comes from the mission chain, I expect the purchase price to be fairly high.

Challenging for most but for me 22k XP a day isn't that hard I mean this is one of the easier tank marathons. This one isn't class restricted, win required, nation specific, or requiring X amount of damage or any of that other crap its just  pure base XP.

I should have phrased it better - I mean the base tank price. If the package price is similar to a normal T8 medium plus bumpf, then fair enough.

Does require top 10.  Curious how the low tier ram approach used in the Intel contest would work for this.

Top 10 isn't much of a requirement because any decent player can make top 10.

for most people it just means quantity, not quality.  500 to 600 battles should do it

It is very legal way to hire people with under-minimum wage. Requirements are too high.

It won't be challenging at all. You've just got to throw enough time at it. Hence the term Marathon.

The requirements are fine. They're giving away a tank that I am very surprised isn't just cash only considering the hype. $40 tank + a lot of credits and reserves (which I'm actually low on somehow) just for playing a lot. Seems pretty OK to me.

It's just a come-on to get people to play more. Guys that have money will buy it anyway, and guys that don't will play hundreds more games than usual.

^^ This. The bundled-only version means that even at 50-60% off it won't be $20. Also the handful of people that get it on day 1 will be spending closer to $80 than the usual $40.

also the tier 10 mission will drastically reduce that amount of xp if you are a semi competent player with some good tier 10's

 Low tier ramming wont work - Tier 6 and above is one of the requirements.
