Cool, mission a bit less terribru than I expected, still grindy, but its marginally more interesting than the XP based ones.

Kind of told Mrs. Siggy I'd stop playing for a while after campaign... This may be a problem.

15 December 2014 - 19 January 2015: Marathon WZ-111

Destroy 150 enemy vehicles per nations within 5 days make it becomes mission impossible.
Maybe destroy 150 enemy vehicles in total is the better idea.

Agreed. As good as the specials and missions are, there's always going to be those people that feel they're entitled to have everything. 

 

Maybe permabans are in order. Just to keep the forum clutter down... y'know.

Finally, the good stuff! i was beginning to fear Christmas was cancelled this year.:coin: Don't care about the mission as I have no interest in Chinese tanks anyway, although I can see why they need to be time-consuming (imagine entire matches filled with WZ-111...nightmare gaming time).

 

Was hoping the VIII - X sales would be a bit sooner, but now I'm just being picky. Thx WG.:)

Well.  I must give it to Tan and WG.  They said we would get specials.  We got specials.   Thanks.   Merry Christmas.  Now time to go do some overtime to buy new toys.

Interesting way of doing it.  I wonder how many people will skip a (or many nations and just buy the tokens.

Token system definitely an improvement. Especially if it can be reimbursed with gold if we didn't get the reward tank (Tanitha please confirm?)

 

Is WZ-111 worth it though? I don't know if I should buy tokens, T-34-85M, or GroBTraktor.

from FTR...

WZ-111 vs 112 – is it worth it?

Conclusion

Is it worth it? Well, that’s up to you – go to the test server and try the 112 out there, it won’t be much different. My own impression is (I actually had a look at it last year using a tester account) that the vehicle is sluggish (like the 112) and the armor doesn’t save really that much. The 250mm penetration shells can be nasty with limited MM, but they seem to be “eaten” a lot by pretty much everything. Additionally, limited depression is quite a problem, when going over hills, you will not only be exposing your LFP, but will also be unable to return fire and this is something I really dislike in tanks, no matter how good their armor is otherwise. Overall, I don’t like really slow tanks that much, so I will be definitely skipping this “marathon”. Regarding the Russian “skipping missions” – is it worth 70 bucks? No. 40? Maybe. One thing is for sure – it is going to be very exclusive, because I can’t see that many people grinding it.
