I would love to get this tank, so much I was looking up the price i'd have to pay to buy it with gold (21K of gold, since i've got the Churchill VII unlocked), but that's out of my price range, since it costs 73€.

Could I grind it in time? Are the news just rumors, or is it official? I am willing to catch up with 20€ of free XP...

The reason I want to know this, is, because I don't want to try to grind something in one month just to fail it.

I'd probably have to sell a few tanks too, because I can't make the creds, unless I spend hours a day at the game grinding.

 

I'd love to have this thing in garage, no matter how much it sucks, because it reminds me of a tank from a game I played as a kid - Panzer Front.

The sci-fi tank in the game looked like this:

 

So, these are my tanks, i'd probably have to sell some to get it, but I have some prems to grind it:

I'm asking the people with more battles than I have. I don't have that much experience, so I'm asking people in here :D 

Thanks in advance.

 

EDIT: Not willing to sell gift tanks or premiums, T20 and AMX and 110 are the top favorites to sell.

Estimated time: ~30 days

Your average exp earned: ~300 exp

Minimal experience required: ~680 000 exp

Full experience required: ~880 000 exp

Minimal battles required: ~2260

Optimal battle count: ~2900

Minimum battles per day: ~75

Optimal battles per day: ~95

 

You can buy 1 month of premium, which would increase your average exp to ~450, which would cut required battle per day to 50 min/65 optimal and you could stack boosters to further decrease the grind. Purchasing 100% exp boosters would cost money, but would make your best scenario 25 battles a day. Hell, that's lot of no-lifing IMO.

Oh, I forgot to take into account doubles. But that shouldn't impact your progress much since you're grinding one line.

You've probably got enough time if you blitz it with xp reserves and maybe a  few days of premium time. I would suggest getting enough free xp for the stock grinds to make it as smooth as possible as the tanks are rather  painful to play from tier 6-8 (and stock conqueror is too because its just  an uptiered Caernarvon)

Crap :( I thought it would be prefectly doable...

Btw, my average exp right now, is different from back then ... back when I sucked real bad in 2012 to 2014 I used to get like 100 average, atm it's because I play tier 5 a lot that I get low exp, since I don't have the moneyz to get T8 prems.

 

My usuals on tier 8 revolve around 600 exp.

 

I also calculated the exp to be 548.300XP

It's been more or less confirmed by WG today in the update video. That and the 183 change was even confirmed to become a special tank. But is the line worth €73? No.. not even close. Tier 9 is fun. But not that fun.

Sure is worth more than P. Victoria and people still bought that.

Weow bing bad at the game and paying no money either seems to be a very bad idea.....

I guess I could get a tier 10 in less than 500 battles with premium account and boosters.

I'm not that bad... don't look at my general stats. Three quarters of my games are sloppy... Like I said, my horrible awful stats come from the days of grinding M3 Lee for months trying to figure out the game's mechanics on my own :facepalm:

 

Right now I get decent games, unless I play the 110, which I hate with passion.

OR unless I lag. And I lag massively since the last update. I get 20 ping and suddenly "PACKET LOSS YAY" and you're dead.

I remember some dude called Annihilator or something, grind to the T62/140 in about a thousand games, completely sans premium time and not a single gold shell.

This is it. He was named Angelofawe, and not annihilator sorry

Will the FV215b go on offer before it's replaced? I don't want to spend 6 million now only for it to go down later.

Give me a shout in-game if you want to toon up with some back-up for the grind.  FV 215b was my first tier X so I'd be happy to help.

Sentimental value to me, so it's enough.

I can play a pos, also, nothing in that line is worse than the 110, maybe only the BP.

I even had fun in the caenaervon, which everyone seems to despise. I had a lot more trouble with the churchills, especially the one with horrendous gun depression

 

Edit; I just checked and apparently both of them have the same horrific gun depression
