While I'm really enjoying the Hellcat and all the goodies I've got, I have to say you guys are insane.

 

Just when I thought you redeemed yourselves for some of the bad moves, you pull out this kind of marathon. 

 

[SEE I PULLED A LITTLE SNEAKY ON YA]

 

 

I was playing my Hellcat, Skorpion G and a couple other tanks I have +55% WR and +2500 WN8 in for 20 battles in total, while grinding credits, not even looking at the marathon.

I completed only first 2 stages, though I was averaging top 3 in dmg and top 5 in XP in every game, win or lose. And I was trying hard because I'm trying to stack 50 million credits before Christmas (14 mil. to go). So I wasn't playing lame, wasn't rushing, etc. I was trying as hard as I did when I was completing the Obj. 279(e) missions. All my games in Hellcat were +2500 dmg and some assistance, while Skorpion and other tanks were usually +3000-3500 dmg usually. 

 

20 games for 8k base XP!!! And the marathon totals 251.000 base XP!!!

 

That's insane. This is probably the hardest marathon ever. Only 10 days for 251.000 base XP?????!?!!?!!!!!?!!??!?!?! If it was 14 days it would be doable for most. 

If it was regular XP (premium and x2) it would be grindy, but this...

This is nothing but a money grab. People will give up at stage 5 and just give you money... Good job, good math, well done!

 

How is the regular player going to complete it? He won't. 

And neither will I, because I don't want to participate in this crap... Also the tank is bad... 

 

Go ahead give me the warning/strike... I don't care... If you can't handle the criticism, do it. But I'm speaking the truth.

This marathon is bollocks and everyone knows it. Even you. But you care about money the most so, yeah...

Also, for the guys in the forums saying "you have only this number of battles", "you don't have those tanks" "you this and you that", this is an alt account of course.

 I just wish the "marathon" would be the tank at the regular price... in this case about $51 for a Tier VIII heavy, and the 10% discount for every level completed came off of that base price, not the inflated price they put it for sale at, bundled with all the extras. I get they don't want to give the tank away for free, they want people to buy it. But they intentionally set up the "marathon" so that the vast, vast majority of people will pay the full $51 for the tank. It's bs. Again, make the discounts off of the base price and throw the extras in totally for free as a bonus for actually completing the "marathon".

People gonna get like 50% or 40% discount, now apply that to the cost of the tank right now and they are going to  pay what a regular t8 heavy cost...

70% seems like the sweet spot.  80% if you not getting boned by MM and having your base xp reduced.

QFT.
The marathon is, for the average player, a 10 day slog of 10 hour days for a whopping $75 which, to most of us working joes out there, is *FAR* too expensive even if it is within our budget... during the holiday season when our budget is aimed at all of the other robotic consume consume consume debt makers for our 'friends and family'.
Pretty much the dumbest 'marathon' they've put out yet.

And it's not even a decent tank, with that huge 'shoot HERE!' bubble on top.

WG have systematically designed every marathon after the first few to be harder and harder to finish while looking appealing.

 

The first marathons were doable...they figured that out quickly.  Now they make it juuuuuust easy enough for majority of people to make level 4 or 5 and a few hardcore to make level 7 and the bots or "no lifers" will reach the end.  

 

Hey, at least they sell just the tank now.  Before with these marathons they would set it up to where you'd get the discount but then have to buy an inflated bundle so your discount still cost $50.

Best thing to do would be to wait for it to come back around in a few months at a normal price, as they always do.

I have spent lots of money on WOT but WGing isn't getting any money out of me for this marathon. I just have zero interest in this tank bundle.
