If you are trying to win one or the other each is pretty unobtainable.

A 50% player would have to play 10 hours a day every day of the event to get  Tankenstein.

The same player could play for 12 hours a day every day of the event and not have enough Biogas to get Gravedigger without spending gold.  

In fact the final stage for Gravedigger  requires more Biogas than the entire line for Tankenstein. 

=  Another Wargaming Gold Scamming event.

25,500 for Tankenstein / 60 (average tier 6 win gives 60 biogas) = 425 wins with an average 50% win rate you need 850 games at an average of 5 minutes a game = 71 hours of playtime. 

And the final stage for Gravedigger is 2,000 more than the total for Tankenstein so don't really need to show the math to see it is impossible even for a 70% player to obtain.

You are ignoring that they basically gave you a free tier V tank.

If you want the Gravedigger you'll need to give money or time.  To say it's a "scamming event" is laughable.

One more point.  They added a event that allows you to grind tanks in a consequence free environment.  That is worth far more to me then some fantasy tier VII heavy.

Tell you what. put both tanks up for sale for gold after the event. Once 5.5 hits.. I'll sell off some of my low tier collectibles and buy them.

This event is allowing me to grind enough exp to get the deathstar. I dont really care about the free tank or gravedigger.

Lol same I don’t care at all about the event tanks, I ground over 100k exp on my stock type 61 and now I have the top modules and crew without having killed my winrate in a stock tank. Thnx WG. That said I’m gonna get tankenstein for free at the pace I’m going.:trollface:

glad that the tanks are unobtainable for bad players. Makes it so that the matchmaking doesn’t get swarmed by ugly event tanks again GG war gaming.

The fact that we can grind to reduce the price of the tanks is if anything, a bit of charity. Instead of buying a tank for the regular prices we are all given this opportunity to attain one at a reduced cost just by playing the game.

Wargaming is a business. They require money to run.  A few Wargaming devs sat down for several days to code this event, and make all the powers, create two new tanks. This costs money.

And you expect events to be completely free? Hey - they gave you a free tank, FFS.

Everyone knows that you won't get this tank for free unless you have no business or family life whatsoever. That's Wargaming's way of saying - "you can buy the tank full price, or you can earn Biogas and cookies to reduce the price of the tank."

In the end, 99% of the people who get these tanks will pay for them. I'll be paying, after I've earned as many cookies and fartgas as I can,

Stop crying. Oh, and here's a saltproof tissue to wipe those tears... you are most welcome.

If you have less than 5000 battles, it is NOT COOL to have a tier 10. Having a Tier 10 does not make you good. If you think you're good, you probably aren't.

Charity? Really? This is no charity my friend! It is just a waste of time. We spend our time and our money, on some useless arcade game. They try to hook us as much as possible, and make us spend money. That's all. No charity.

Several latest events were hard to grind fully free (T-44-100, CDC, IS-6). Getting the Digger is about the same intensity/difficulties as those. I got T-44-100 free but ended up using a bit of gold for Chieftain/CDC/IS-6. This is no different. 

and yes, the tier 5 is totally free..

No charity? Just by winning 50 battles you probably would’ve eventually won anyways you get a free tier 5 tank.

While I agree it isn't charity, there is also nothing here that "makes us spend money".

I appreciate the free tank, as well as the possibility to earn or purchase for less another one or two tanks.. but for me this event is all about grinding!

 

I finished off three lower tier grinds, along with purchasing the Chinese IS-2 and then fully researching the WZ-110 with 75% crew, no equipment or consumables or camo, with no hit to my still struggling winrate!

I then purchased the Panther II and am almost 1/2 way thru the same lack of stuff grind to the E50. (I am using crew experience boosters though because I know I won't finish before the event ends)

*edit: I did end up purchasing improved optics and running double food to improve my view range after I already earned a big chunk of the xp needed for the E50 as the accurate gun shooting at range seems to be the only thing that this tank has going for it despite the poor pen vs 9's and tier 8 heavy's fronts with a tier 7 gun.

 

Thanks WG! lol

I've taken big time advantage of grinding some tier 9 tanks, that would have otherwise been a brutal grind....
