So, with the current 3/5/7, I refuse to grind a tech tree T8 tank in regular random matches, unless it's meta/OP or something (lololol.... non-TX OP tech tree tank... right).

 

That means a lot of grinds I have kind of simmering are just sitting around in the hopes that Frontline will come back or something else (I suppose I could do Team Battles... only I'm seldom on at the right time to have a decent shot at doing much grinding there). So here's all the T8s I'm not grinding thanks to WG's laggardly attitude to fixing the MM:

 

- T32 (goal: T110E5)

- T28 Prototype (goal: T30)

- AMX 65t (goal: AMX M4 51)

- T-44

- A-44

 

The last two don't have a specific goal other than "I really should get a TX Russian MT of SOME kind". None of these are tanks I care enough about getting to actually blow free XP to skip the T8. 

 

Anyone else have any similar tanks they're just not touching right now?

Jackson. 2 battles, 100% WR and an ace. 

 

OK actual t8s?

None because O-Ho, IS-M and arty are all brainless.

Yeah, I have no issues with grinding T8 SPGs. I actually just started the British SPG line for just this reason. :trollface:

Panterra was the most recent grind. Went pretty well but then it is better than most 8 meds these days. 44100 is still fun to play, so you should be ok with the T44 assuming it's not too stock.

Yup with the state of the game atm I've turned to the dark side-so sorry to all the peeps I've shat on lately. GW panther is a nugget but don't have top gun yet.

 

Grinding the t28 td which works well on some maps with nice trolly FRONTAL armour but yeah most 8s are just bog atm.

 

Working my way to the pantera  ( \m/ ) good to hear its not toats pute.

Wont avoid any. Even with 3/5/7, the odds are still 40/40/20. Also, 122mm T-44 are pretty good when bottom tier. Just spam HE at tier 10 for easy and cheap grind.

Pantera is almost exactly the same as the Prosciutto. If we hadn't all been given the Prosciutto for free, I suspect you'd see a lot more Panteras on the battlefield, since it's the best Italian tech tree tank tier-for-tier (the T7 and T4 are also v good, of course).

Also, T-44 is the one that LEAST interests me because a): I'm already playing the 44-100 for fun, b: I still have no idea what Soviet TX MT I'd want, and c: I still kinda like my KV-13 and would hate to have no crew for it.

As for the T28 Prototype, well, the T25/2 is genuinely fun to play right now. Just play it like a MT instead of a TD (I now remember someone who'd three-marked it giving me that exact advice long, long ago - it was their favourite tank). While the T30 is great fun, no doubt, there's no need to rush up to the rather miserable in-between stage.

When you cant afford to spam gold, thats what you do. Plus, HE are just a cheap weaker version of prem round :D

I'm at the tier-5....just wow.

To call it underwhelming would be a gross understatement

Accuracy on the 44-100 is just nuts. I can see why many loved this

T32 and 65T stock grind probably could make the strongest grinder cry.  Even the likes of me just thinking of free xp when looking at those 2, and I grind 13 75 old MM from stock.

Yeah imma just pass through the 65T to go straight to the sweet spot of the entire line, at tier 9.

Can't avoid grinding t8s if you have already ground them all :WeSmart: 

Only left the chinese t8 td and the french spg (other grinds are 5 t9s,rest are all at tier x) , made good use of FL to grind the amx 65t, is-m,t28 proto, t28 all from mostly stock because haven't bought anything for a long time now and don't really have enough gold to convert to free exp (since i rather use it on prem time)

You thought 13 75 is bad

 

You must have joined before 12t had a gun buff
