Saw quite a bunch of meatballs tanks flopping around last night even Tier 8s and want to know.

 

Hows the line so far? Are the tier 4-7going to be a painful grind? Or the tanks are just so so medium in terms of performance?

Seems a good place to start.

I started at tier 4. It started well then MM wrecked my party but finished with a flurry after 22 games. Hit tier 5 and picked up 4 masterys in a row...... (it's surprisingly effective) I wouldn't rave about it but she's okay. Seems sluggish but the guns okay.

Free exp to the tier 5.
The t1-4 require a radio operator which is not used in higher tiers.

Use a 75% crew for radio

 

Or I use a 75% for everyone anyway


You silence those who speak the truth, and you wonder why everyone is talking rubbish

You reward those who win by cheating, and you wonder why you can't produce people who can win while playing fairly

You punish people who put in effort to play, and you wonder why all who remain are the unmotivated

I ended up free exping up to tier V. Also accidentally joined a battle in the tier 1 tank, no eq placed at all, and this is what I saw on the enemy team:

Taking seal clubbing to a whole new level of low.

Planning on ghetto prems to tier 5. That's usually where the grind will get your crew back to 100% by the time you research the next tank,  plus not much point having a good crew in the lower tiers.

I intentionally seal club once..... I had to scrub myself with acid just to get rid of the stench.

My friend was playing the Tier V last night and got 3 Ace Tankers in 4 games. Max one was 400 base exp, the lowest was 369. Don't even know how...

Look wise, they are good. Mix between German and Brit design. But tier 10 got pretty ugly turret, and T8.. or 9, could challenge panther 88/L100 in jousting contest.

Was it on a loss? You get get aces on a loss if you have courageous resistance. I had a couple of 800-900 base games and didn't ace it

I'v aced the tier V about 12-14 times so far (played 22 games in it). Win or lose its an ace.  It's got so bad it's lost all of it's appeal and just feels cheap as some were definitely not worth the ace in my opinion.

 

Although i did get a 1.3k xp game as my last ace so it finally felt satisfying.

Realizing literally everything for retraining and pumping crew was on sale at the moment I caved in and started the line. Claimed two of my reward women for the usual Commander/Driver combo.

 

Started off with the T6 due to simple economics - it's just cheaper to Free XP past the T5 than it is to pay for gold retraining one more time. Pumped the men up to 1.5 skills, so that the crew at least has working BiA.

 

The top gun on the P43 b is really punchy and accurate. Real nice to play.

But the tier V is the Italian plumber's tank. It even has a flange pipe for the top gun barrel.

That reminds me... I want to name my male crew Mario & Luigi, but have no idea what to use for a last name (they officially do not have a last name, per Miyamoto).

Tier 5 has some decent armor,  heavy tank mobility and a low pen gun

played 10 battles in it and free exp-ed it.

 

Tier 6 has awesome alpha (240 dmg with 2000 dpm, yes more dpm then a 4202), ok armor, and mediocre mobility.

The gun is not accurate at all, and its too slow for a tier6 med. Not really enjoying it so far
