Yeah pretty annoying, I missed a day because I ragequit due to dumbo teams and didn't get back on before the mission rolled over and now the camo is unobtainable.

I only get the most prestigious of 3 marks.

It's also one of the few of the marathons that had a meh tank and no token system. Odd... but oh well. Camo is camo. Ever since WG started with their clown camo which most of the reward camos have been i don't really pay much attention as they're turned off. And of the ones that weren't clown camo i can't tell the difference anyway.

i wanted the camo more than the tank, and i missed a day because of the server lag and can't buy a token or the camo itself. Kinda sucks. Not like I wasn't playing, everyone was lagging as well so I feel they should give extra days to let us try get the camo.

Somehow I've managed to keep up and have completed every daily mission so far, but I really don't know why they can't extend it for say, a week, or even a few days given the extenuating circumstances of the server move.

Meh, I do't really care much for the camo tbh. I just want the premium tank I'll never use.

I would like to keep hearing what people think about this. 
 

I mean, with the Kursk event as our example. That event was an exercise in players playing the game. We do understand that players have lives and that not everyone can play all 50 days, even when the missions can be quite easy. 

So would you rather buy them than play easy but long for them? Would you play hard and short instead? 

 

Thank you.

Just sold them for gold while making them available for free from mission. Camo skin in WoT not really worth as much as other skin in MMO imo, theres not much reason to keep it event exclusive.

Completing 30/50 for the tank is very doable for those of us who can't spend all day on the game. Having easy missions over a long period is significantly more preferable to heavy grinds over a fortnight. I'm sure some would rather throw down some cash and get it as soon as it's available. Maybe give an option to buy the 50/50 camo for those who really, really want it, but can't complete all missions for whatever reason. Or use the purchasable token system to make up for the shortfall in completed missions, which is something WG have done in the past anyway.

I think most people just want to be able to do the marathon and have fun, but be able to buy a token or two if they miss some days due to real life (or the server lag ahem) for like maybe 1 or 2 dollars?

Fair enough. In my mind (which is not always logical) I am thinking that in the future, maybe we can set it so that you can play all you can then at the end, if you miss a few, hey here's a couple tokens of what you missed.
I understand missing out a few days because we have lives but I am a little bit iffy with someone buying say the whole thing. But that's just me and that money goes towards my pay... I must be craaaazy....

30/50 feels about right for a meh tank / ease of missions. But it feels odd not to have something juicier for getting further into the marathon. And yeah, the no token option seems odd but i guess not a biggy given 30/50 should be very gettable.

The marathon is actually fine in terms of effort, rewards, etc. Maybe some people feel like 50 days should be more rewarding, but 30/50 for mid-tier tank seems fair to me.

 

The only thing that's really missing is the usual option to buy tokens for missed days.

I think it would be good to let people purchase say 10-20% of the "mission", that way they still need to contribute significant effort to it.

 

Updated: to clarify I think the 30/50 for the tank is fine, the 50/50 for the cammo is too much though.  I am currently 24/26 as I cannot play every day.

Honestly after missing a day I lost all interest in the event because i couldn't get the camo anyway, even if i was willing to pay a small amount for a couple of tokens.
