Ace is only 1383 XP

 

And let me regurgitate the words from someone:  "wahhhhhh only good players are playing a tank when it is newly released so the stats are inflated wahhhh"

 

But it is clearly quite a popular tank to play

 

This is how good tank balance should be. Fun for the driver who doesn't care about stats, fun for the people who are fighting against them.

SOmeone?

 

I would have thought that most people on the forum would hold that view.

 

If you can easily get XP to get a newly released tank then all sorts of people will be playing it. The hurdle was 53k in the KV3 which anyone who wanted to could grind to get the new T8 tank the moment it dropped.  

 

The further up the line of new releases you go then its perfectly logical that better and more experienced players will tend to be the only ones playing it in the early days. They are the ones who will have accumulated free xp to unlock modules and get through the grinds. Though this tank might be a bit easier to get given the large drop of blueprints over xmas.

 

And that requirement for an Ace is evidence in itself that the people playing the tank are better than average. Most tanks you can expect and ace from about 1200ish up, most people feel getting 1300 is pretty much an ace in the bag.

 

But regurgitate away.

13 raw a second. Ooof. Tempted to spend a bunch of fragments on the 9. I gather it's even pretty usable stock.

Was a close fight too. They would have won if we had only one hero. But no, we had twoooooooooo!!! Biatches!!!

 

That is what I love about Ace Tanker badges - They only appear when your team is bad and you are presented an awful situation. They don't appear when you keep fighting easy battles, so statpadders will keep telling you winrate is everything and Ace Tanker is just luck.

Stat padders like padding stats and sadly number of aces achieved isn't a paddable one.
