Let me introduce you to the Japanese super heavies. Find the low tier enemies and bully them while they do no damage or push your own into enemy fire and there's not a drat thing they can do about it

i recommend going up the japanese heavy tank line and enjoy the most of it by pushing your team mates around and if they're near a wall you can tip them over

Actually I guess the Japanese Heavy line starts at tier 3, but I dunno what you consider a superheavy.

Tier 3 weighs 20 tons
Tier 4, 30 tons
Tier 5, 100 tons
Tier 6, 150 tons

Basically if you touch one of these things with a same tier tank, you'll swiftly disassemble into individual Legos.

hows the wz-5a and 132-1? got enough free xp to get one of them. I love playing lights, but the wz 111-1-4 has been one of my favorite tanks in this game... Both look really nice on paper

Why on earth would you spend free xp to unlock a tier 10, especially one that follows a great tank?

I havenít played in like a year, already have hundreds of games in the t9 and the t8 premium, Iím not interested in poopsocking to get the t10 and I want to play something new. The t9 light seems a bit lackluster compared to the old 132, the t9 heavy rocks but Iíve already played it to death. Are either of the t10s any good?

The 5A is pretty good, although I only played it on CT a while back so I never got to see how it fares when goldammo isn't being hurled around by everything. That being said, I do see them around often on EU so I'm guessing it still holds up well. The 113 on the other hand looks to be as rare as rocking-horse poo poo right now, probably on account of the """meta""" being changed ruined by so many idiot-proof retarded Soviet heavies rendering the gun (as seen on the Tier IX medium) somewhat underwhelming for a top-tier heavy tank.

I haven't played it but I understand the T10 Chinese light to be pretty much the cream of the crop, while both of the Chinese heavies are extremely good as well. Can't really go wrong.

If you have a fat stack of free xp burning a hole in your pocket, why not spend it on a line with a different playstyle entirely? Free xp up to the tier 8 Italian? Swedish TDs/heavies? Go past all the bullshit British heavies to the Caern or something?

Meh, I'll just get the light and do the heavy later. Got 5 skill crews for both I think. t10 lights sounds funky...

Already got the Swedish td, heavy heavies are not really my play style and the spaghetti leo with an autoloader doesn't sound too interesting.

So this new Caernarvon is only available in a stupid rear end bundle? I was thinking I'd get like 30-40% off a ~$50 tank, looks like that's wrong. A $50 tank and $25 of nonsense. I think I'll pass.

I've cracked the 70% off, but even at 50% - 60%, there's a ton of credit boosters, and a 0-skill BIA crew in addition to the 50$ tank, so I'd say it'd still be worth it to get a whole bunch of dope crew members that you can either keep together, or retrain as 0-skill 6th sense commanders for other brit vehicles.

Hell, I think tier VIII was the same amount of XP for the secondary as tier VII, so I might just see if I cram in another 40 games of the 13 57 by Friday, that should be fairly doable for a 80% discount while still being fun.

With no discount it's overpriced as hell, but that's the point of the missions, to at least get the price down to a reasonable amount for a competitive Tier 8 medium, a BIA crew, and a shitload of the actual useful boosters.

The crew would be nice to have but I have more boosters than I know what to do with and I hate paying their extremely inflated prices for gold/credits/equipment.

Yeah, I think even the players that score below 700 average XP per game could easily breach the 50% discount by literally just playing on the weekends. I average around 800-900 XP in my most fun tanks, with 940 average XP in my MOST favorite tank, so getting the whole package down to 25 bucks by just playing was no effort at all, and the next step was just saying "okay, I'll just play the 13 57 for a couple of hours this weekend".

Oh yeah, I got that in mind. Should be something around a casual hour and a half of tanks in the evening between today and Thursday, no biggie

Bought the light. Not regretting it, seems like an awesome tank. Already have 1500 games or so in the 113 (for some hosed up reason). Lights is more fun when you solo imho. Also, these grand battles are strange, but scouting in them seems fun

The italian meds *tier 8+ are literally some of the best tanks in the game. The Autoreloader mechanic is broken as gently caress.

Okay, I take everything back, I'm perfectly happy with my current AX discount, two casual hours of tanks tonight and a 40% session winrate.

Why is there even still a 4x win bonus on a Monday? These teams, uuuuugh

I might see how the next couple of matches tomorrow turn out, but I'd rather pay some sweet socialism dollars than suffer through these pubbies

Eh it is definitely an interesting little light that is almost a medium but isn't. Getting bounce's with its turret is pretty great.

The problem with a 0-skill BIA British crew is that there aren't many keepers in the British line. There's what, the Cruisers 2/3/4, the Matilda, maybe the CGC (the Bishop and FV304 are dead) and maybe the Conq/Super Conq, and the Cromwell/Comet. A lot of those are redundant or low tier.

Also don't give Wargaming money.
