Tankers,

 

We've got another Challenge/Marathon event coming up! 

 

More details in the article, but here's a sneak peek at the teaser video with some details about the vehicle.

Nice looking TD. Just wish the marathon wasn't going on during cw is all. Oh well it is what it is.

Sigh...bundles...

 

I DARE WG to make this premium TD available in the in game store for gold.

 

(There's 30 seconds of my life wasted pleading for anything with WG.)

Good day my fellow Tankers
This is a transcript from Reddit so yeah. I put more effort into it then I did on the german Forum post :V
Hope you enjoy it <3
 
Today I once again have the opportunity to plug my channel have some math for you. Today I tried to estimate how many games you need to get the Tank via commitment. I did a video regarding this over here on this link again go watch me where I talk about it and explain why I went with such values. Anyway MATH TIME and APPROXIMATIONS. WOOOO
 
So Stage 1 wants you to get 4 times 250 bexp ( Base EXP). Sounds definitely easy, yet looking through some replays I uploaded to wotreplays and looked at all the bexp gained by the winners and loosers. And interesting enough, almost always winners got 250 bexp while looser got it 50% of the time... more or less. To make it somewhat fair we estimate that our fictional player has 50% winrate and 500 bexp on average
So now we say we need 4 times 2 ( because of the 50% winrate) amount of games to finish the Stage 1: Woho 8 Games!
Stage 2 is different. 4500 bexp over any game. We said we got 500 bexp on average so its just 4500/500 which is 9 games.
 
Stage 3 is 12 times top 10 bexp. This is not too hard but I give you all a fail chance of 30% meaning that in 30% of the games you won't get the top 10 bexp. So we calculate 12 * 1.3 and get 15.6 which we round up to 16 games
 
Stage 4: is 12000 bexp so its another division by 500 and 24 games
 
Stage 5: is 25 times 500 dmg. Once again we say that 500 dmg is pretty easy to achieve but you got a failrate of not achieving it of 30%. so once again, 25 * 1.3 gives us 32.5 games and we round that up to 33 games.
 
Stage 6 is 20000 bexp and so is 40 games
 
Stage 7 is 25 times 500 bexp. We once again say we get a 50% chance of achieving it as it is pretty easy on getting it in a winning team. Maybe we are on a win streak so it gets even easier but we stay at the 50% chance of failing. So now its 25 times 2 and so 50 games
 
Stage 8: 40 times 500 dmg. Once again 30% failrate => 40*1.3 = 52 games
 
Stage 9: 30000 bexp is 60 games
 
And Stage 10: 50 times top 10. 30% failchance and that is 65 games..
 
now DRUM ROLL PLEASE brbrbrbbrbrbrbrbrbrbrbrbbrbr
 
We get 357 games which are necessary with our approximations! Which is 35.7 games per day, at an average of 7 mins per game a woopy cool 4:15h per day of WoT for 10 days straight for the TS-5.
 
So is it easier as WG claims then the EBR marathon. If we make the same approximations of 500 bexp and 50% winrate we get a total of 630 Games needed for the EBR Tonk at 14 days. Which are 45 games per day resulting in 5:06h every day for 14 days straight.
 
Phew.... so here we go. Again more explanation and examples are in the video linked above and let me know what you think about the approximation! Thank you so much for your attention, now I go lay down and hope my head doesn't explode of my headache.
 
Cheers

HEY WG!

The Fixed Gun American TD line SUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKS!

 

Putting out a tier 7 Premium Hellcat would have been 100X Better

Glad that you made it easier. I refused to buy last time on principal since the missions were unreasonable. We do have lives outside the game.

Does it actually come with the skin/3d style shown in the last minute or so of the video?

the challenges for the lower tier seem so much more doable than just straight raw xp required to pass. Thank you WG, this is SO MUCH BETTER. Please keep marathons like this instead.

Nice analysis, i came up with number of matches in the same ball park.  bear in mind that your estimate is extremely sensitive to match time. 

i think i can easily cut my match time down to 5 minutes per game or lower playing aggressive t 6 meds, not waiting for results and quick dropping into the next match. 

this would cut the daily average to <3 hours per day.  allowing for the fact that there are 2 full weekends, completion with 2 hours/weekday is not out of reach, particularly if you get a lucky streak for a few of the missions. 

but it's a grind which may detract from the experience.

Should have gotten a reward for reading the event description, with the text scrolling on its own at its own pace and having to be yanked back all the time.  Now, if that didn't make me feel like BLOWING SOMEBODY UP, what would???!!!

everything about this challenge is just bad, having to be tier 9+ is just stupid, but i guess when you're in a 2nd world country your level of education is pretty bad, so thanks for ONLY rewarding players who dont have jobs and can play your game all day...

stage two is only top 10 while on the winning team.  So take that 9 games and double it(due to losses where your xp doesn't count at all), and also add an additional 30% again cause its top 10 only.  So that 9 games turned into 21. Which adds 12*7minutes, an extra 84 minutes just because of those stupid requirements.

Which is exactly why they add them in, they force you to play for an extra hour longer than you expected to need.
 

Thank you for the breakdown though, other than that it appears accurate at a first glance.

Have any of you noticed how this will be roughly 2/3's completed when the next Frontlines Episode comes out?  Think about it.

I will be participating in this event.  This is a once in a lifetime type of TD to own.  Clown cars are an abundant pain in the back side so I didn't want the premium as we got way to many to grind out.

Watch the reviews of this tank. It’s a piece of garbage. It’s basically a re-skinned  T28. And with the broken matchmaking that has made tier 8 the worst tier why would you waste your money?
