I would say it's a bit too grindy and only really possible for high skill players or those with an excess of time, BUT! it is a new tier 8 premium so it's understandable.

that said getting to at least "tier 5" on the mission gives nice rewards and a 50% discount for those who wish to pay for it.

overall it's not a bad system for new tier 8 premiums.

I enjoyed the last grinding mission for the tier 8, unfortunately I'll be away for 10 of the days that this one is taking place. Looks like I'll be playing quite a bit the next few days and then dropping a couple of bucks to buy the tank.

Considering what is in the bundle, the price looks fair.  Especially if you make 50-70% discount on it.  Thanks WG

Overall, I would give this a 9.9 out of 10.

Being able to get a tier 8 prem for free is excellent.

The fact that you don't have to complete a daily style mission is great. We do have lives you know, but in general I love missions.

It's good that if you don't manage to complete all the missions you can buy the tank at a heavy discount.

The in game mission window is magnificent. Very clear and looks freaking awesome. Must better than some of the other interface changes of late.

Zero perk BIA - OMG.

Yes, some of the mission requirements are tough, but I view that as just the cost of doing business, so I'm neutral on that.

The only one teeny-weeny complaint is that you can only do the alternate missions in tier 10s. Don't you understand that there are 10 different tiers available to players, and not everyone wants to play tier 10s all the time?

The only constructive criticism I can give is this:

 

It would be cool if the secondary option was available for tier 9 in addition to tier 10.

Please update the link to purchase the tank so we can see if it's worth working towards the discount. So far I can only see one package. Maybe because I'm on my phone. Hope there is one with just the tank.

Thanks Gnomon. Could you find out if the tank will be available without the paint job ?

I believe the paint thing is a style which means it can be removed.

I believe that this event is for the bundle (and subsequent discounts on said bundle). The tank may come up for sale later by itself, but that will likely be some time down the road... Similar to the Progetto.

If it starts today, why didn’t it start early this morning so those of us that rise early could have done some before heading to work?  This 8am start time was not helpful for my available hours and grind time and I’m sure I’m not alone.

Are the exp points cumulative or do they reset each day?

They only do things to help out the fanboys, who think so much of themselves, regular Joe's, like me an you don't get a fair shake around here, most of the time.

There is absolutely nothing 'daily' about this marathon. You can complete all the missions on one day if you have the skill/time.

 

 

 

 

I'd also just like to say that I'm unbelievably hyped for the new tank. Not having to play the A45 to train Super Conq and Conq crews is going to be soooooooo nice.

The only complaint I have is being the 3rd person on the list in damage and being 11th person on the list for exp...My big ole slow TD is not good to try and spot with but sometimes I get lucky and do spot some...blocked 2500 damage but end up 11 on the list so no exp towards the British challenge.

I think you either forgot to mention or forgot to uncheck the win requirement box. Had quite a few games now where my team lost I was in top 10 base xp and the xp didn't count.

I don't like the size of the bundle.  I'd rather buy what I want, and if I wanted boosters, I'd do that, and pick the ones I most want .

Way too much time for way too little return.  This is where I have been all morning and haven't even gotten close to finishing.  So, I am done, if I decide I want it, I will just buy the damn thing.  It's much cheaper that way.  I can spend my valuable time doing things that are much more important than this silly [edited]game.

Yep, it's meant to set up the majority of players for failure.  Don't waste your time, life is way too short for this.

The grinding is pretty intense.  Just like the Progetto was.  I believe the Progetto was $5 cheaper if memory serves me right.  I didn't compare packages, but they should of been the same.  Trivial, but I thought I'd mention it.  With that said, being able to get the tank at 70%-80% off the sticker price is a good thing.  No way I'd be able to complete it to 100%.

 

All the goodies you acquire as you go I like.  So irregardless of a purchase and or completion, I like the missions and rewards.

 

Thanks for offering this event again.

 

Just one other item of mention.  Maybe in the future have the top player on the losing team get an xp bonus.  Reason being,  some times you can't determine the outcome of the match.  However, it would be nice if the top player received that added bonus added to their base xp for their effort.
