Quick question: If XP determines whether you get Ace Tanker, is it easier to ace when you have a premium account?

No.

 

Ace Tanker is calculated using the average base XP of the top 1% of players in that tank for that week.

 

It is reset every week, some weeks it will be harder than others.

I am so glad. :)

 

The forums have conditioned me to expect someone to be claiming that the matches are fixed if I see a title like this.

 

Congrats on your first Ace Tanker.  Which tank was It?

​premium account gives you bonus to XP and credit earning, and a ""clean"" garage.  That is it. And congrats on the Ace.  May your Aces multiply and be fruitful.

Oh wait, that was topgun.

 

I DO remember my first Ace, same tank, Arctic Region.

Pushed too far to the North, got in way over my head but my team bailed me out resulting in masses of spotting damage. Lost the replay though.

Those who buy Fort Knox have a 10% multiplier to their Ace Tanker stats.

Reset you say, I always assumed only the last day(7th) was removed with the begging of each new day with the latest 6 days kept as a measuring stick like a conveyor belt rather than a complete 7 day reset?

Actually, I bagged ace with just 381xp. :hiding: It was the lowly tier 2 AT-1 on Himmelsdorf and the first TD I've experimented with. Struggling to get to grips with the whole limited traverse/lock hull thing, but I'm picking it up slowly. And I did manage to chase down and brawl with two Stuarts. I don't think this is a popular tank, though, so it's probably easy to ace. I'll savour the moment while I can.

It does not reset at all.  It is always based on the last 7 days, so on a Friday it is based on the previous Friday to Thursday, if it is Tuesday it is based on the previous Tuesday to Monday.

 

Yes it can vary a bit but unless a tank is changed by a lot I wouldn't expect it to be massively different from one week to another.

 

You mainly get them for having a lucky battle though, which makes them somewhat meaningless.

Maybe not vary week much it can definitely vary a lot over time. I remember I was really trying hard to Ace a WZ132 when the Chinese lines were relatively new and everyone was using them with excellent players using them REALLY well, that top 1%, I had a 1,550-1600xp round with lots of kills and damage and was shocked that I only got 1st class. Played it maybe 4 months later again, had a 1350xp round, Ace tanker.

Nonsense, maybe the odd lucky battle. It's no coincidence that the better I play the luckier I seem to get lol.. same for other players

I love the look of most turretless TD's but if I could go back in time I'd probably not bother with them at all. having a turret is such an asset and enriched playstyle that makes any map workable or at least gives you so many varied angles of attack, defense and escape.. especially now with the zippy light tanks, any turretless TD with a sluggish aim time, traverse, shell velocity is basically forked up the backside which was always a possibility at times but never all the time on most maps. My advice to anyone starting this game is get a tank with a turret and a bit of armour firstly, then take a look at which one suits your own personal playstyle and preference but do NOT waste you time, effort and in some cases money, messing around with a tank with no turret.

 

Don't get me wrong, I have had many amazing battles with turretless TD's but even so, my opinion wouldn't change, if you REALLY want a turretless TD I'd suggest the siege mode Swedish ones, they may have all the failings of having no turret but what they are good it is being invisible and accurate and that they are BLOODY good at.. that said though and kinda repeats my point, even they really heavily on getting one of only a few decent sniper maps but also a team with capable scouts whereas a self reliant tank with a turret you can just back yourself to get the job done most the time
