About 45, not even sure. Was a good event. Would probably have bought the last five tickets if it were an option. But I'm OK- used Tiger I, Panzer IVH and for Russians T-34, Churchill III and (after I earned it) T-34 Shield.  Really got some good crew training in.

This event was one of the best in memory. Each days missions were simple enough that if you only had limited playtime they could still be done. Had they not been constructed this way, I probably would have not been able to complete as much as I did. Great for people like me with family commitments.

I thought it was awesome!  Easy missions that can be done and the reward is for consistent play.  Not sure what the complaints are for, maybe everyone should get a participation trophy like they do in T-ball.

I did 50/50, played the T-34S, KV-1S and SU-85 mostly.

Historical based event!

Reasonable Daily requirements!

Option to use specific vehicles or your own favorite!

A usable reward vehicle for a 2/3 requirement of participation!

Did I say historical usage of vehicles?

I would rate 10 of 10 and a worthwhile pattern for future events.

I really liked the mission set. I missed a good portion of the event, so I did not quite get the tank. The variety of the missions I played were well thought out, and that the missions were "easier" with certain vehicles gave new incentive to play tanks I otherwise might not have. I would be keen to see this in the future as well.

The prize tank, the T-34S is a superb choice. It's not a bad tank, but it's certainly not "overpowered" or anything like that. Though other shorter/more difficult marathons in the past have been led by tier 8 tanks, I would like to think the mission marathons would be a good way to get more lower-tier vehicles out to the players, while also making the missions somewhat more manageable for "average" players with less time on their hands. I recall when the T-44-100 was part of a marathon, and I didn't really try for it since the XP grind for some nations was too much for what my schedule allowed, wheras this was just plain old fun; the only reason I didn't go farther in it was because of how late I was getting into the event.

 

All in all, brilliant stuff. This summer has been a resounding success between Frontline back at the beginning, and then Kursk through to the end, it's been a solid season for sure!

I got 47 of 50.  Between work and spending some quality time with my wife I didn't quite make it.  It was a great event and I enjoyed it.  Thanks!

I forgot to mention I liked the historical side notes each day but they stopped partway through, I imagine this was cut because of the amount of time it took to research and write?

50 for 50 but after the first few days the history disappeared.  

 

Can we do the REAL largest tank battle next?  The Battle of Brody?  

 

I have to go look for the emblems now but for everyone else I think there are more than one set of cammo for different styles of tanks!

Gotta say, it was a good amount of fun. I managed 40 of 50 due to weekends and holidays. My go-to tank for faster completions was the Ferdinand. :)

30 out of 50 because life happens. Anyways, great event and I enjoyed it (did mostly South). Add this event feature to your "Do it again" list.

Very nice mission but, the reward for 50 missions is kind of weak, giving 7 days of premium time after 30 and 1 after 50. at least 5 X 50% credit would have been nice and another 7 days of premium.

 

I always ask for more, sorry lol

49/50, missed it by ..... THis ..... Much.   LOL

all in all it was a very enjoyable event, and helped me enjoy grinding up two new crews for my Russian mid-tier tanks (that i had poached for my IS 7 and T-54).

 

Thanks.  This event and the recent Italian event were some of the best that have been rolled out.

Had to work, travel abroad for work, and went on vacation with family - you know, real life stuff.

Missed close to 10, but got the free tank and some prem time! Thanks for an easy event!

 

Give all those 49ers some kind of catch up mission!!! Nothing wrong with making people happy right WG?

Realistic Daily requirements for those that are unable to play for hours at a time

Option to use specific vehicles or your own 

Historical side notes each day ( well for some of it anyways)

Two thumbs up !!
