When you cannot afford to free-XP a meh tank so you grind it but you feel uncomfortable, uninspired, unwilling even to roll your sleeves up, so you just yolo or camp and minimise the game to do something else for a few minutes, and so on. Are you guilty of this or do you always try hard?

Guilty, your Honor.

 

Also guilty of yoloing with multiple Premium tanks to quickly make heaps,

Try hard and do well or free XP it if that doesn't work. Yoloing and camping to avoid playing properly are dubious tricks that let the team down.

i refuse to convert xp +reward wgs "ways"

ill use 2x 1st, wins +not play it after win.

 

So that means sometimes i can get 10games in, before 1x win. All random of course.

Sturer Emil was that tank for me ... Selling it after unlocking the Borsig was prolly the best feeling I've gotten while playing World of Tanks. No, seriously ! Pool's medals means nothing to me.

I'm allways down on free exp. So I grind all tanks. That means that the tanks I don't like are bathing in dust waiting for x5 events. Like the tier 5 czek. I hate that nation, but I need at least a tier 6 for every one of them, so that Skoda is taking dust from ages...

Panther2. Really twisted my nuts this tank but I once asked the forum what was a great tank for all occasions and all maps and the most popular answer I got during that particular patch era was the E50 so I took that on board and started grinding that line but half hearted turned to a full on gfu tank when I finally suffered my way through the Panther2 module grind only to discover that even with a decent crew and top gun etc it was STILL a total donkey.. any good results I achieved in that tank was simply because the enemy either ignored me or things simply fell nicely for me.. it was never a case of I figured out an effective playstyle for it and damn did I try hard to figure it out.. I then noticed that the E50 standard AP was laughably blunt for a tier9 as the Defenders, Patriots and other power creep tanks came on the scene along with really dangerous light tanks patch along with type5 and Maus etc I said f*** this sh** so the long grinds left and other factors not only did I not consider wasting such huge demanding free xp to jump to the E50 which was looking uncompetitive now but the Panther2 never saw action again to this day.. even the x3 and X5, it remains in hall of shame. Maybe it will get a buff and might have something equal or better than another tank but for now it's withdrawn from service

Not guilty of any of that. All grinds done except the Chinese TDs.

Not in a hurry to finish that line, but using personal reserves to speed it up.

 

 

Meanwhile, sitting on this, just waiting for a 10x crew training event.

VK is excellent compared to the Mauschen.  Better start saving Free XP.

I always save the xp on x3 or x5 days on my tier 10's so I kinda laways have enough free xp to spend. So I skip tanks regularly that I do not like. Even skipped complete tier 9's twice (7/1 and 103)

Guilty. T-69. In the first 10 battles in this thing I got ammoracked 3 times. It was so demoralizing and infuriating that I couldn't take this tank seriously. Mandatory stupid 1-clip yolos and other sheeeet. Sold after 60ish battles.

Keep at it bro, the tier 6 is fantastic

I do this with almost every grind now.
I got so many tier 10 tanks so I'm not in a hurry to get the next

These tactics do, however, provide much addition to ones XVM camo :bush:

T32, Pershing, Black Prince and St. Emil got the yolo treatment. Hated all of these tanks with a passion. 15k XP left to grind on the St. Emil and I cannot wait.

 

I have more than enough free XP to have free XP'd the St. Emil, but I save it for tier 8 and 9 modules.

I´m doing this with 5 tanks right now, well 4 actually just got rid of the ISU-152.

Seems like I am always grinding new tanks, I should spend some more time playing my keepers but no, have to get to the next tank in line, even though I dont really want the tier X tank of that line, wierd.
