In TO here too.  Didn't lose power but lost heat for all of Sunday.  It's still off actually.  Old, old apartment building.

 

I didn't do a real marathon but I did play more than I would normally.  I finished the grind to the Emil II with a bunch of losses and a glorious final victory.  Bought that and moved everything over.

 

I got x5 wins on a ton of tanks and went back and finished a light tank mission with honours.

 

Avoided tier 10 and totally happy about it.  Played 6-9.

 

I feel you with the EMIL.I had a bunch of losses with my good ol Tiger II until a GLORIUS epic MASTER badge WIN including steel wall, high caliber and 6800 in damage!!!!

 

Stay warm however you can man. Spring is back on the way today!!!

I get like the gameplay was as bad as normal, honestly, and the win rate was just as streaky.
As for the OP’s question, I bought the T95, WZ-132, I rebought the M4A3E2 Jumbo just for fun, and I upgraded to the STRV 103b (had to sell the 103-0 at the discount to have enough credits).
Now I need a crew retraining sale so I can move the crews...

 

that T95 is something else. Its on a long term list to get to ONE DAY....

I purchased the E3 while it was 15% off as well as some equipment.

I am mid-grind on several tanks and it just takes me too long to get through them - so I wasn't able to purchase any tanks this weekend :(  Man, I hate grinding and will be so glad once I get the E3, Maus, BatChat and IS7.  Because then I shall grind no more.  Goodbye 268 v4...I shall never taste your lips...except on the Test Server of course  ;)  I really did appreciate the 6-9,000 XP with those first 5x wins though.

 

On a positive note, I did buy all kinds of equipment and consumables for future use.  And I loaded up all of my reserve tanks with equipment and camouflage.  Plus I purchased 6 emblems (something I rarely do).

Bought about 10 garage slots and 50 large repair kits and bought maybe 4 Tier 6 I had already researched but won't use for a while because I don't play enough to be useful in Tier 6.  Then the money ran out.

Thanks man :)  Have you finished the Tiger II grind?  I kept it for a long while but eventually I decided the E 75 is just a better Tiger II and I'd rather just keep that.

oh yeah, I have the E100 in that I've played 36 horrible games in and then abandoned until it gets buffed or I muster the courage to hit again.

I wheeled out all my Tier 8s for the 5x weekend along with the premiums. 

 

Its a painful tank unless played JUST right. It is NOT forgiving as the E75 thats for sure.

Bought the WZ-120 and the Wolverine, and some equipment. Ended up being a busy weekend, so unfortunately I couldn’t do as many x5’s as I had hoped.

I finished up the IS-M and purchased the 705 and another 4 million on consumables. Could not sell any tanks for credits so I cleaned out all the modules I had accumulated.

I didn't have time to play much on the first day (Thu), but for Fri, Sat, Sun:

 

  • I got my 5x on ~30 different tanks per day while running 100% XP boosters, so I made a huge amount of progress.  Some of my better battles were well above 10k XP.
  • I spent about 8 million credits on equipment, and maybe 3 million on consumables.
  • I bought the following tanks:  Nashorn, T-50, Lorr. 155 50, AMX AC 48.  Basically, was only looking to buy Tier V, VI, VII, since those were the only tiers with the maximum discount, and that's all the tanks at those tiers that I had unlocked.
  • Bought ~15 Garage Slots
  • I didn't really focus on the Progetto Marathon, as I was just working on the 5x for my non-Elite tanks, but I still made a good amount of progress on it as I've completed 4 stages, and am maybe half way to completing the 5th.

 

My stats took a bit of a dip, but nothing too serious. 2239 WN8 & 57.84% Win Rate over the 4 days.  That's entirely from me playing a bunch of tanks I'm not super familiar with that don't have all the top modules in a lot of cases, and has nothing to do with the 5x weekend; that nonsense is a myth :P  

 

It was a great anniversary event.  I almost don't like when they have sales and 5x at the same time, because the sale makes you want to grind credits, but the 5x makes you want to grind tanks.  Yes, first world problems :)

 

How much free XP?  Hmm, wasn't really paying attention; always had a free XP booster going.  Maybe 40k?

 

Now the plan is to grind the M103 as part of the On-Track until I can unlock and buy the T110E5, then I'll switch over to some credit makers that I also earn a lot of XP in to wrap up the Marathon.  On a related note, I also bought the T2 Medium (tier 2) from that line, just because I wanted to Ace it, and drag my win rate out of the 30's.  Played 9 battles in it and Aced it 4 times.  That thing is super OP with the 15 shell clip.  I guess I should feel a bit guilty, but it's sold again now anyway.  Forgive me :)

That IS-M has been on my mind but not enough time to focus on that yet. I have only played the IS a few times so far.

Enjoy it!!! I hear it comes alive only with the TOP gun.

The IS-M was great, it is situational because of the poor depression but when you can sidescrape it is a monster.

i only used the special discounts to pick up 3 tech tree premiums that i did not already own.frankly i have too many tanks as it is,but my splurging on xmas lootboxes yielded ~185k gold,and i need to spend it somewhere. AT-15A,AC 4 experimental, M56 scorpion. that leaves only 2 more tech tree prems i plan on getting,tier 8 lowe and m4a1 ravioli.next time there is a 15% gold discount on them,im picking them up.

 

if i didnt have this really ridiculous amount of gold stashed,i wouldnt be buying ANY more tanks.i dont play often enough to justify real money spent,except on holiday lootboxes,and since i DID get the type 59,maybe not even then.

 

im not even trying the italian challenge,no plans to purchase it.

didn't buy any tanks, too poor for that now and I had only like a mill of silver so I bought 2 pairs of optics and 2 large rammers... all I had the money for... I wanted to grind out more credits cause I def needed more equipment but the weekend was brutal in terms of teams so I didn't play as much as I really wanted to...

The Tank God giveth one day of premium and taketh away with very high ms. So I was trying to play with latency between 300 and 600 ms! A pointless exercise and very little to show for it. 

 

Oh, and as many have pointed out, the gameplay was woeful. Plenty of shaking head moments. :facepalm:

 

Never mind, the sun comes up to greet another day.

 

We shall prevail!

 

Have fun, well, at least try,

 

Guffy.

Bought a few optics and rammers. Couple of vents and GLDs. Some consumables.
wth(The one after the Borsig).
I think another tank but can't remember.
Also the USprem TD Scorpion.
All in all probably spent 11 or 12 million credits.

I bought a ton of consumables, some equipment and a discounted tier 10 vehicle.

 

Ran a few tier 10's but mostly stayed running premium tier 8's with XP & credit boosters.

Researched and bought a Conqueror and an IS-7, finished up a couple of others but had already blown all my silver. Spent some gold on camo for premiums.
