I was grinding towards the BatChat 25t.  I had the AMX 13 90 with a 3 skill Female crew and ~80k XP.

 

Then the magic WOT Wizard created Tier 10 light tanks and I now have ...

A Bat Chat 12t with ~100k XP and a crew with ~60% on the first skill (camo, no BiA, no 6th, No snapshot, etc.), and ...

an AMX 13 90 with a 3 skill Female crew, ~20k XP and "only" about 300,000 XP to get the tier 10, that I'll probably never play.

 

So the obvious thing to do is :-

1) move the females to the 12t and sell the 13 90.

2) swap the 12t and 13 90 crews and keep going with both

3) leave the crews as they are and just keep going.

 

I'm not much of a light player.  The only thing making me keep my existing tier 9 lights (I also have the 54 ltwt and RU 251) is 

a) the eventual novelty of a Tier 10 light (perhaps they'll buff them or re-balance them or something

b) the prospect that if the Personal missions get re-worked then a Tier 10 might be useful.

 

But I doubt I'll own 3 tier 10 lights any time soon (ever).

 

I did play the 13 90 last night with the view that a bad game would convince me of option (1), but I played a 7000 WN8 game, so maybe it's worth keeping for a while longer ...

Similar situation with me. If you use the WoT comparison function to look at the tier 10 lights you'll see the AMX 13 105 doesn't excel at anything, literally the only thing different about it is that it has an autoloader. Some people half convinced me that it's a reasonable all rounder but I still won't bother with it. I'll just grind out the 13 90 and stick with that.

If you don't intend to get the AMX 13 105 before the batchat 25 then I would go for option 1 or 2 if you want to get the light eventually.

13 90 is actually good fun now. But I've still not bought the tier X as I suspect it won't be as fun or as a good bully as the 13 90 is.

 

Not played the new tier 8 12t after it was added, as I sold it instantly after I got it. But with the XP on the 12t, you are halfway to the tier 9 medium BC. So I would just keep the 13 90 for now, and push on with the 12t. As by then you have most likely made up your mind about the 13 90. And if you don't want it by then. Toss the crew over to the BC 25t AP.

Just don't touch any t10 lights before they get buffed. They all suck major bottom. Keep going for BC, it's the best light after all. Also AMX 30 is nice too.

The new 13 90 is pretty nice, the 13 105 on the other hand is not worth the grind. A 3-shot clip with mediocre gun-stats is pretty lame.

I thought of another option :-

4) leave the crews as they are, but when I get the B.C 25t AP, use the female crew from the 13 90.

 

I hate not getting good value out of my girls, but I can't see myself playing the 13 90 that much.  If I move the girls they'll have 4 skills by the time they get to tier 9 B.C.

13 90 is very strong at the moment though. Tough choice as the value option makes a lot of sense in the medium-long term.
