The requirements for the next marathon will be harder than last time with the introduction of the Swedish line, and potentially the polish line too. The requirements will probably be the same as last time in the same amount of time too.

marathon for, say a tier 5/6/7 prem, so more low tier players playing = would make high tier games maybe a little bit more generous with top tier/same tier MM

 

AGREE. The freebies should be easier to get Tier 6/7 premium tanks. Give pubbies a reason to play those tiers more often.

But what is everyone's favourite way to gain tanks? Marathons? Grinding? Buying?or personal missions. Cause if anyone remembers the su 100y 'marathon' all u had to do was login 60 days in a row to get a free t6 box tank. Should wg bring more of these back? Personal I think so cause it encourages players to at least play the game every now and then and makes it more interesting than just grinding or paying for tanks.

 

p.s DEV PLS REPLY!!

What about a Tier 8 OP Premium heavily Armored SPG of some imaginary kind?

 

Surely this would Tick ALL the WG Listening Boxes, for their loyal customers.  :trollface:

If you're going to do these marathons for tanks shouldn't they make the tank you're playing for influence the tanks you can play for it. IE: if it's low tier (4-6) then make it you'd have to play tier 3-7 in a non premium tank. If it's tiers 7-8 then make it you have to play a non-premium tank from tier 5-9. Why no tier X or premium tank, well tier X's get the best MM at the moment so have a significant advantage in game and you want people to actually play the lines don't you?

 

Another aspect is to limit the nation or class you could play, if it's for a Russian tank then it has to be ground out on any tank from tier 4-10 on any Russian lines. If it's a medium reward then you have to play mediums but not limited to nation.

 

Lastly WG could gain a lot by giving you daily log in bonuses. There's really no incentive to keep people coming back to the game. Wouldn't be hard to implement and you'd keep newer players interested. the longer you have the daily log in the better the rewards. Maybe after 3-4 months they give you a premium tank as a thank you, like Glenso mentioned above.

The T-34-85M marathon was basically perfect. Relatively easy missions, not too long, not too high tier of a reward. More of those would be great.

 

Also, they really need to get more T7 premium tanks, period.

Never once has a dev every graced the Asia forums with their exalted presence.

 

The issue with all these missions and stuff is there has to be a balance between easy/hard and short/grindy.

 

Make it too easy and short and everyone gets it.

Make it too easy and hard and it becomes a braindead grind.

Make it too hard and short and it may be too luck reliant.

Make it too hard and long and it becomes a painful slog.

 

Ideally the balance should be a medium length mission that prioritises doing well but not to the point where you need to be super lucky. It should be hard enough that people actually try to play well instead of braindead grinding and it ideally should be out of reach of really crap players. The missions should allow some leeway so that people who may not have entire afternoons to dedicate themselves to the game can also have a go.

 

The issue is such balance is implausibly difficult to obtain.

But its not too hard to do it and I have seen that the gameplay in the server hasn't changed much 

 

truthfully I like this marathon, the rewards could have been better but I l quite like the system they implemented

The missions tab is not loading for anyone in the games today. I assume Wargaming will thus mark them as completed as we cant see them??

I had to restart my client to get yesterdays mission to show up in the missions tab but it was working in the background even though it wasn't listed.

A bit premature, but thoughts on the Alpine Tiger marathon?

A bit?

 

WG are famous for making things get considerably harder the deeper you get. Not that that's a bad thing of course. If they were all easy it would kinda kill the sense of achievement.

Why play a marathon when you can just buy the tokens seems UNBALANCED, because if you can't afford to buy you suffer because you play, that's a [Removed] ACT.

???

 

None of the missions are hard and generally completed as part of your normal gameplay with individual rewards as a bonus.  Not sure how that is suffering unless you don't normally play the game in which case why would you need the reward?
