Without something simmilar we have now (so 50 x2 crew xp + personal reserves) I am pretty sure that I will not play tier X ToT tanks...

Time to have Bat.-Châtillon 25 t and grind for personal reserves.

But why:

10 Personal Reserves: x4 Crew XP for 2 hours?

Them are not x4, only x3.WGa 3rd time are writting that but then i get them - i have only x3. May be is some secret to have x4?

 

+300% = 4x

Either make TotT only half month long or put away votes entirely and pick tanks randomly. Or both. I preferred old TotT because eventually any tank would be featured.

Yes I fear that we have same popular tanks next year as this year, except Swedish will broke that. It will be boring if same tanks over and over again.

I can think about these suggestions:
- Keep the discount rates at this values. Or maybe put Tier X at 40% discount so they will cost 3'660'000 silver, like a tier 9. I have SO MUCH tier 10s unlocked waiting for discounts an like me many other players. 

- Reward side i think would be nice to put in some free-exp bonus like: 

- - - 8 Personal Reserves: BIG XP for 2 hours
- - - 8 Personal Reserves: BIG Crew XP for 2 hours
- - - 4 Personal Reserves: BIG Free XP for 2 hours

or the possibility to choose from these and maybe some equipment.

- Duration: i suggest as follows: instead of 1 month discounts, 2 month missions, give 3 weeks discounts, 6 weeks missions. That gives +4 Top of The Tree discounts at year.

- Voting System: Eliminate from voting the 2 precedent choices of that type, or more drastically eliminate until all tanks are selected (but this way from one discount to another of the same tank will take veeeeeery long (2 years). The good point is, setting so, give the chance to grind some unusual tanks)

Note: there are 37 Tier 10 tanks at today (39 considering that, with the next patch, Sweden will be introduced with their 2 new Tier 10s)

I'm not seeing the discount, only the AMX38 is showing a discount.

 

oops, my mistake, the price is discounted just no % sign showing.

Well, what do you know? I have the exp to research Bat.-Châtillon 25 t AP and the credits to buy it.

Just wanted to brag about it.

I'd ask you to remember that not everyone who plays this game has been playing since 2011.  Many of us don't have dozens (or even any) tier 10 tanks.

 

So it would be good to change this feature away from the focus on "Top of the Tree" to a much broader "Whole of the Tree".

 

If you offer the IS3 / IS7 line again many will moan, but in reality most of those will moan anyway.

I've had 1 month of that line and it allowed me to grind some of my KV85 / IS.  Offer it again (along with the great tank lines that have been previously offered) to help me get my T-10 up to the IS-7.  

And change it so that the reward also helps the tank grind, not just the crew.

 

So Far I have NEVER had the opportunity to get x2 for victories or to win Personal Reserves (as I don't have any Tier 10s).

 

So rather than rewarding (only) the old timers, most of which have stopped spending money on this game (or left completely), why not give something to they new blood who are helping to keep this game lively.

 

You are in luck. The whole tree will go on discount at the end of the year, like every year, but it will only be at 15% instead of 30% for tier 8 - 10.

 

I understand your frustration, but I have not been playing since 2011 either and if you want to take advantage of discounts, you have to plan carefully or wait patiently. This is my list of unlocked tanks: T-62A, Oject 140, Maus, T110E3, T110E4, 121, AMX 50 B, FV215b, STB-1. The 121 has been unlocked for well over a year.

 

In October I've bought the T57 Heavy Tank, the E 50 ausf. M before that, and the JPZ E100 not that long ago either. I've also unlocked the following tier 9's for an eventual power grind for the next top of the tree: ST-I, Leopard Prototyp A, E 75, G.W. Tiger and AMX 30 1er prototype.

This month it's the batchat, which I already have and I'm quite happy for it to be top of the tree. Don't think I've played more than 1 battle in it recently. It allows me to continue working on the other lines. I need some 60k XP on the Conway to wrap up that tech tree. I have the T92 grind going on, but I only play daily doubles to avoid having to play arty more than I need to. I'm working on the O-Ho and the AMX 46.

 

 

So, I don't really care about what is top of the tree, I just ask for it not to be the IS-7 every second month. I had my little project going to enable people to do a more long time planning, but unfortunately, there are not enough people who particiapate.

There are 36 currently eligible tier X tanks (44 tier X tanks as shown in Tankopedia - 6 premiums - WT E100 which is still there?). Including the new 2 Swedish tanks, each one could be featured in Top of the Tree if it runs for one week (9 months for all trees). One interesting option to me is Top of the Trees that are overlapping, each one going for 2 weeks.

The main downside of this is that certain tanks will be featured multiple times (T-34 could be featured 6 times!) so including all possible branches may not be the best idea.

Don't forget that credits are a balancing factor in the WoT economy. You are not supposed to have too many credits and they even hope that you spend some real money to get that bit of extra gold or silver to buy something for an event. You know the top of the tree event tank doesn't come by every month or every year, so you could use some personal reserves, covert some free xp or do something else to get it. That was the philosophy of my poll. Organize ourselves to get a long time planning of the specials so you know how much time you have to prepare for a grind. 

 

Just work on multiple lines at the same time, and make sure you don't buy anything before you know what the next top of the tree is going to be, or power grind that line. You have around 45 days in the current system. The poll gets taken offline around the 15th each month after which I compile the results. If you can make it to tier 9 and have some 6 million credits ready at the beginning of the month you could buy the tier 9, power grind and get the tier 10.

 

Another tactic is to stock free XP. I had already done the German TD lines and got to tier 9 on arty. Afterwards I decided to start all the other lines from tier 1 at the same time, taking into account which tanks to research first in order to reduce the amount of XP to spend on modules. I still have the E 75 to do, for which i used free XP on the turret, got a Leopard PTA unlocked and the arty. When the top of the tree hits, I'll buy and grind, but I suspect I will spend most free XP on the Swedish trees to get them out of the way.

 

So the message is, prepare for the specials, but don't focus on it if you are not ready. There's plenty of things to do in this game and grinding lines takes a lot of battles. Instead focus on getting better which will reduce the number of battles you need to complete grinds. It will also net you more credits which is handy as well.

I'm going to repost a comment I made a while ago about my idea for the TotT

 

Make them like personal missions.

I don't think that getting T10s gets enough fanfare in the game anyway, I mean T10 tanks are the goal for most players and nothing happens when you get one!

There should be a mission for each T10, we get badges, we get special missions and we get discounts for unlocking them.

You choose your T10 mission, you get 1 month to complete and no repeat for like 3 or 6 months or something, IDK on that exactly.

Anyways, it would make T10 tanks feel like a real accomplishment AND everyone could choose the tanks that THEY want to grind.

It would also mean that nobody has to "manage" it.

From the news http://worldoftanks.eu/en/news/pc-browser/44/top-tree-bat-chat-2016/ it says:

 

ImportantNovember Top of the Tree is the final one in 2016! Afterwards, the event will go on a break for two months, making its come back in February 2017. But fear not, the end of the year will be pretty packed with discounts and bonuses, so you will not be missing out on anything!

Yes, read that already, but comeback in February means voting in January and... still no polls. On the other hand they can easily be by the second half of January as they took no more than 2 weeks.

Or maybe they just realised that the whole voting was a bad idea - and we'll just get a random line that wasn't TOTT last year.
