Watching Skill4ltu and it seems like a pretty well balanced tank and a lot of fun too.

He is playing the pre-nerf version.  The stats on this tank will change in the 1.8 patch.  The reload is going to 21 seconds for a 2-shot clip, for example, which seems absolutely terrible DPM for a tier 8 medium.

Yet another marathon that is far more work than it should be. No thanks.

These marathons used to be fun, now they are just work.

 

The quick math shows the non-mastery missions requires 245,000 base XP to complete the marathon, over a period of ten days. That means an average of 24,500 base XP each day of the marathon. For an "average" player, earning maybe 500 XP/match (if that's even possible for them) equates to about 50 matches per day. That works out to at least four to five hours of solid gameplay every single day. I believe this is more than should be asked for by your community. Ultimately, I realize the only goal here is to get people to spend real money to complete the missions, but these types of marathons used to be "reasonable".

 

So, as much as I would enjoy playing this new tank, I will not be attempting the marathon.

I will also not be spending anything, because WarGaming doesn't deserve my money.

Yep, everything as per normal.  WG is happy to sell it for $50, but they'll set the price at $100 and make people think they are happy to get a 50% discount after spending 100+ hours grinding.  If someone (you know who you are) buys the tank for $100 so much the better right?

Above the missions breakdown section in the section called missions for commitment it says top 10, so I assume it means that. There is a mission higher in the sequence where it seems to be top 1. I agree they need to word it better though.

I agree with everything you said except the PS. CW reward tank isn't accessible to average players. Average players can only get into crapclans which won't be competitive enough to earn any rewards. This one is at least "accessible" if only arduous.

Good luck to all those out there who have no life or job. You will do just fine on this sprint, I mean marathon. Think of it as a job you have to clock into for 10 hours a day for the average player.

I'm going to keep really good track of my progress this time, and report back when I'm done.  I think I will exclusively play Tier X, but there's a least three missions where I expect to hit the XP requirement before the Tier X requirement.

 

I started picking out my tanks after deciding on a minimum battle threshold, but just for fun, I'll throw that out the window, and pick tanks with best stats, even if they have a small sample size, then update the optimal tanks as my numbers change.

 

Best case (unlikely) is this takes about 271 battles, but I'm probably unlikely to play that many in 10 days, so I'll be happy with a good discount.

Missions for Commitment: The best option for players with a strong desire to get their hands on the Grand Prize. You must use a Tier VI–X vehicle to meet the diverse task conditions. Remember: Your result only counts if you are one of the top 10 XP earners on your team at the end of a battle, no matter whether your team wins or loses.

Thank You for verified confirmation on this confusion; a rare few players are even going to set aside time without fully knowing what the requirements actually are : now *verified* by a Wargaming Employee, we actually know now, Thank You!

 

- I would also add; that it is very very difficult to discern missions whenever there are two different descriptions as to which one is the accurate one.

 

So, even, reading the entire article does not clarify that confusion!

 

We would greatly appreciate more refined proof-reading of the website posts before they go up onto the website, thank you.

To heck with the Bourrasque.  Where can I get those police tanks with working sirens and lights?  I want one of those!

IMHO. True, for folks on a normal busy schedule of life this game participation math does not work. That's the first point. Second point. Do we not have enough premium tanks? Do we not have enough blueprint-never-seen-metal-or-even-battle tanks? I am in battles with large numbers of premium tanks. More so than ever. Apparently this is quite the bread and butter in dollars for WG. Which answers my question. Third, I find it unfortunate that WG will not spend time expanding this game beyond constant versions of team pvp. This is the only game I have ever played which has no non-player modes, activities and missions. Granted, they tried this a couple of times like Halloween and Homefront recently. But again, these attempts were somewhat bland vs what other games are doing, e.g. Star Wars: The Old Republic. The time they spend tweaking (not to be confused with twerking) the game attributes to balance this or that could be better spent expanding and really using their imagination. I have brought this up before and threw out several suggestions in support ticket ID#119177195, June 30, 2019. Just saying. Blessings to all.
