Or.. you could just not be terrible at Tanks and it's pretty easy to do.  On 5 atm, and not even trying.

 

-Edit:  And after a long break, I'm playing freakin terribly.

Unless you're a Unicorn, or have Insomnia and can play 10-30 hours a day for two weeks thus likely giving yourself heart failure or some other major issue causing your death, don't even bother playing the mission to actually "get" the tank.

Cause you won't get it....

 

Wargaming yet again SCREWS 99% of the player base who aren't Unicorns.

They only care about Unicorns....  It's why almost every tank of the game is ship or ship in some way thus making you hate the game almost every time you play even when playing well.  It's why only Unicorns get all the other rewards, special tanks, lot's of gold, etc.

Everyone else, those who also play alot, who spend a lot of money on the game.... **** them, Wargaming doesn't give them ship for actually being the ones who make the game survive!

 

Of course, to be fair to Wargaming at least in this case, something which isn't "that" bad, they've done something actually "okay".  You could apparently play some 1+ hours a day and get 30-40% off the purchase price, which is at least something, but, please, getting the tank free is basically a marketing ploy frack you.

 

 

I don't get it. So you can't put in the time. Neither can 90% of the community. What's the problem? Cash up or leave it. Why should freebies be easy to get?

It just doesn't seem like a "must get" tank.  A new autoloader gimmick with paper thin armor in the crap tier 8 meta and not much else that makes it stand above already existing tanks.

Maybe four hours between last night and today?  And that's being generous in the estimate.  It's really not hard to complete.

It's mostly so you won't have a chit crew when you start the tech tree grind.  Is it necessary?  No.  Will it help?  Sure.

The difficult part is winning with damage. I have the best games on losing teams, thus reducing the xp. And suck on the few winning matches I have. Also producing low xp.

I've played two days this weekend, and have 3 stages done, and about 65% of the 4th.  It's not that damn hard...

The event is an opportunity to earn a free premier tier 8 tank, or a discount on the package that includes the premium tank. It's up to you to go for it or not. Why should WG make this a simple challenge? They make money from premium tanks and as this is a new nation they are obviously expecting a lot of sales, why would they want to give away a money maker? That would be bad for business.

 

I don't personally fancy the Porchetto 46 much and I think the Italian tree will soon be considered a bunch of stinkers, but I will consider buying the tank (Porchetto 46) if the discount I manage to earn with the event is substantial enough. I think the event is a tough and I won't be able to finish it in time, but I may earn myself a 50% discount and that makes a purchase a little bit interesting as the package includes a lot of other goodies besides the tank. But if you think spending nights and days to save yourself 60 bucks is worth it, go for it by all means, but please don't complain about it if you don't have the time or stamina to do it.

I'm playing a bit more than I would because I'd at least like to get a 50% discount...why folks are continually shocked, shocked, that WG is a business seeking to make a profit is beyond me. More surprising is that considering they are a profit-seeking business that they have such talent at annoying their customer base over issues of how playable the game is and balance. Anyway, I'd rather grind for base xp than try and hunt down some insane number of kills with each nationality of tank.

I have to laugh at all the people crying about the cry-babies, all this person said was WG said FREE TANK!!!! and made it sound like it would be easy to get. Instead they turned around and made the mission to get it near impossible for someone with a life. Now do not get me wrong they are in it for the money and have every right to set it up this way but instead of say FREE TANK!!!!!! they should have said, like they done in the past for other free tanks, there is a chance to get a free tank but it will be hard very hard. 

 

IMHO this is one of worst Free tank missions ever at least the others you had a chance even if you had a life but again due to WQ hurting for cash they are trying to entice people to get so far and then spend the rest to finish it off. People are complaining not because they are not getting it for free they are upset that WG continues to up the requirement for these missions from the past. If these missions were like this in the past then I think you see no one [edited]but I could be wrong. 

 

Just like the last Christmas event which if you wanted those camo's you had to spend money. Now I do have to give credit were credit is due and at least you got more then what you paid even though I could care less about gold and credits now.

 

I will try and get the free tank but if I do not finish more then likely I will pass on spending my money unless its dirt cheep.

Its about as hard as tank rewards when you divide the total XP over the 10 days, but not as bad as the Black tank missions.

 

Not even close. I complete all TR missions and I got all 3 black tanks. I will complete mission 8 for this one but it should not be a give away, some will complete it.

It's much tougher than tank rewards because none of your daily doubles or premium time or personal reserves count.

But you can just play tanks you like grinding xp/credits and decide after 2 weeks whether or not the discount you earned is worth it.

You can just play normally unless you are a tier 2 seal clubber.  It's a no pressure play at your own pace any tank you want marathon.

I don't see any reason to complain about it.

I'm about 5K into Stage V right now. I plan on getting 10K in XP a night at a minimum. Definitely more this coming weekend (I'll probably grind out two of the stages then).  So, I figure I'll be at Stage VII or VIII when it's all said and done. 70%-80% off is a great deal for about any tank package. 

 

...and I'm no unicum by any stretch of the imagination.

 

It's a MARATHON. IT's not supposed to be easy.

 

I guess some of us like a challenge, while others want things handed to them.

 

I'm weird I guess...

Dont have the exact total as I'm not logged in but I'm roughly 12k into Stage 6 for a total of about 106.5k xp. Works out to around 26,500 avg per day. 180 games played so far shows close to a 600xp per game avg.
