I recently read a article on FTR about the upcoming changes in 9.3. Once I saw that the American light tank line was being expanded up to tier 8 i immediately jumped into the game and bought the M5 Stuart. Unfortunately at the moment the m24 Chaffee costs about 50,000 or something exp to research and needless to say I am not looking forward to a grind of that magnitude. My question is whether the cost of researching the m24 Chaffee will go down once the new American light tanks come out because if I have to grind 50,000 exp in the m5 Stuart I'm gonna go insane. In my opinion there really is no more reason for the m24 to cost so much exp once there are more light tanks after it.

 

On a side note this is my first post so.......yay?

The xp cost will DEFENETLY go down, around 12k-15k xp, just like any other tier 5.

On the other hand, grind the chaffee now, the M5 is not that bad (but you need 6th sense), go into a bush and scout, and use the derp gun.

Because, when the new line comes, m5 and chaffee with get a HEAVY nerf, m5 will lose its derp and chaffee its rof and some, more info on FTR old articles. So its best to get the chaffee now as long as its fun, and grind some 20-40k xp on it, then when the new line hits you can buy the T6 right away. I grinded the chaffee a while ago since it was one of my last tanks to do, and I planned just what I wrote above. Ok, I´m not that good with chaffee in randoms and dont like it that much, but in Skirmishes its great and I have 40k xp in it already, now I will crew train until I know what the T6 will cost.

 

Ps. I elited the m5 in 78 games with 60% wins... anything that can be elited under 100 games is easy and worth doing, you will learn a lot by playing "bad" tanks.

What does it matter, if you wanna learn how to play a tank. But if you dont wanna learn and just whine about the tank or somebody who knows how to play it, fine... live with it, dont learn.

I  have 64% wins in my M5... I also have less than 100 games in it (94 games).

Gotta love the gold...:trollface:

Proud Chaffee owner.

Funny the only reason I have never got the Chaffee is the insane xp cost. So roll on 9.3 as I will be getting this little monster as soon as. :smile:

I wouldn't say it's an upgrade. Sure it has a higher top speed and nicer camo, but Chaffee has much better gun handling (+ can mount a v stab), has better power to weight, better penetration, better view range and can carry 15 more shells.

 

I find it very easy to run out of ammo in the Type, heheh.

True the only downside of Type 64 is the ammo. but after the chaffee nerf i think Type 64 will be even better than chaffee in most aspects.

Of course, but then that's be like comparing the VK2801 to the Leopard.

 

It'd be more proper to compare the Type 64 to the T37!

More updates on FTR today: 

M5 losing its derp, 75mm being replaced by a 37mm!

I was grinding towards the Chaffee. I slowed down when I heard the changes originally. Glad I did, would be mad to pay 53K XP only to have it nerfed 3 weeks later. 

 

So I expect to retire my M5 when 9.3 is on and move the crew to the new Chaffee...however I only got 1 skill crew so going to be a hard grind for me to get. I'll also have a lot of free XP to convert too.

Search_Warrant is banned but he wants me to make a post on his behalf. He's got some Type 62 codes he's willing to give away to the first 12 people who PM him.

 

Also he's spotted the news on FTR that there won't be any refund of ground exp for the Chaffee (since the cost is getting nerfed from ~55k to 26k) and he wants this bringing up.

 

Personally I don't mind, as 1.3k games of bliss in a crazy light tank is more than worth the 55k exp cost, but I can understand if you'd only got this tank yesterday that you'd be pretty miffed if the cost was suddenly reduced.

 

Much love,

 

3Form.

Hallo,

 

I would like to get one of the Type 62 codes!

But I'm not allowed to PM him :-(

Can I get one anyway? :-)
