The B-C 12 t, a French tier VIII Light Tank, takes an incredible amount of XP to grind and to reach Elite status (834,615 XP, am I'm correct?).

Compared to other same-tier, same-class tanks, it seems totally unfair. The difference is crazy huge. Don't you agree?

You can grind 3 tier X tanks but you play craptiers only once. Boo hoo.

No, it's silly - at least I got the t9 light researched for free when they made the change. The only up side is that it's a good, fun tank which I enjoy playing.

834615xp to grind out a tier 8 tank? Surely you must be mistaken?

He's talking about getting it to elite status, which means all three tier 9 tanks that come from it need to be researched too.

Right I see that now. Something I haven't payed attention to since I already had everything in that line beforehand...

French need a medium tank line leading to the AMX 30, having 3 different top tiers leading off the same line is crazy.

arent the heavies  real meds already ? so you would need superhevies and make the 50b line meds  but than again would that tun the batchat and 30b into lights ?

 

or you would need some half assed intermediate  that would still come out as a kind of "L"edium

It's not the only one. Tiger P has 3 tier 8 tanks leading out of it to name one, and the shortcut to the Tiger. So 4 tanks and a bucket load of XP and games to get done.

372,655 XP, if I'm correct. That's far from 834,615 XP. Yes, I know the Tiger P is only tier VII, but the diff still seems huge.

I wonder if the B-C 12 t is actually the most expensive tank to Elite of all tanks / all tiers in the game. I would almost bet on it and if true, totally unfair.

I don't get why this is such a problem. Either you like the tank, which means that slight difference in crew exp is traded in for getting nice tier 9 vehicles one by one, or you dislike the tank, in which case neither of the tier 9's after it is significantly more expensive than counterparts from other nations, so you can select a tier 9 you want to have and grind for it.

B-C 12t is actually 646 800 alone... that's if you add the 9000 xp radio most already have. And not including the tanks to get up the line. So still high, and def the highest of the lot.

Tiger P is 415 140  XP to get all modules and tanks up. Inc the 10,5 cm derp that most still have at that point.

 

Other mentions would be the T-54 that has two tier X's to unlock. So 590 000 XP to elite. Or the M41 Bulldog that now needs 495 050 XP to elite if you skip the T69 grind via the T71 that is. Or the HWK 12 that needs 478 700 if you don't have the medium line. So still lots for their tier, but nowhere near the 12t. And I suspect it's not that great that many want to do that grind fast. As I sold mine instantly, as it already was elite at that point.

But its completely different case. You dont have to actually play Tiger P nearly as much. Ferdi can be researched from JP and Tiger I from VK 3601, leaving that only tanks you actually have to research by playing Tiger P are the VK 4502 A and now VK 100.01.

 

In order to elite BC 12t you MUST research all the 3 tier 9s by plsying the vehicle. Its stupid.

 

Researching Batchats from that line makes sense because they are pseudo-lights, but they need to introduce a medium line to link G1 R to AMX 30 P.

Don't get the problem, you grind up one line that then has access to THREE tier 10s. Why complain about that, you would have to do way more grinding to get 3 other tier 10s that had their own individual lines because you would have to grind to tier 8 three separate times.

it wouldnt be that big of a problem (grinding 400k xp extra) if the tank wasnt completely impotent, but since the tank is completely worthless pos, i guess it is quite the kick in the nuts to grind 400k xp on it if one wants to elite it.

I want to elite it and keep playing it as elite. Simple.

It is one of the most fun tanks in the game. I'm still halfway through the 13 90 grind and I have to grind both the BC 25 and the AMX 30, but I don't see a problem, because it is a tank I can play all day.

 

Oh, and I can get profit most of the games, wins or losses without premium account.
