I'm currently speed-grinding my way toward the FV183 before it gets removed. I'm 20k XP off the AT 15, and need to know what the expected release date is for 9.21 to know if it's still worth trying to grind it out in time or if I should just give up now. If it's released after christmas, I should be able to make it, I'm grinding out 10k xp per day atm which should take me ~39 days to get to the FV183 (not including creds).

So I'm probably too late.

 

I get that they're swapping it because it doesn't fit the line, but they could at least leave it in as an alternative for those who want it instead of the FV217 or whatever the new one is. Surely it would take less work than removing it almost entirely. They could just put it as an alternative to the 4005 too, that makes the most sense IMO.

I'm glad somebody asked this question.  I have to get on my Tortoise and get moving...

Yeah, at best you have about a month. So if you are trailing behind, you better get going.

WoT Patch 9.21 Preliminary Dates

9

Good day everyone,

So we have some preliminary dates (i.e. Subject to change) for Update 9.21:

  • First official announcement: Nov. 8-9
  • Exit from Supertest: Nov. 9
  • First General Test: Nov. 16
  • Second General Test: Nov. 30

Not much more specific after that, 9.21 will be released sometime in December, hopefully not a full wait for WG Fest in Moscow on December 23rd. Main changes are looking to be the obvious HD models, and the FV217 “Badger” replacing the FV215b 183.

Of course we’ll post more as info comes out, but that’s it for the time being."

I'm only at the AT 7, 20k xp off the AT 15. On top of that, I'm not the best at making money, and my best money making tank is only a tier 5 premium. I think it's too late for me.

Play more hours and use a XP booster and use Free XP to unlock modules.  You may not wish to continue with WoT once you've finished though.

If you are finding the AT15 difficult to grind through, I think you will find the Tortoise to be worse.  When on maps with hard cover, try being aggressive and attacking enemies at the extent of your gun arc around corners.  Try 'poking' the corner, as opposed to sitting in one spot while firing.  

 

If I was online more often I would help you out.  If you want you can add me, and if the stars align I can try and assist with the grind.

I already use XP boosters, and am saving my free XP to use on modules for painful grinds (like the AT 8 stock grind). I don't have any gold to convert XP though, and I'm certainly not buying any for it. And I get bored just playing 2 hours per day, and also have other stuff to do.

I'm not at the AT 15 yet, I'm on the AT 7. The AT 8 was painful, but I'm enjoying the AT 7 much more, and I heard the AT 15 and Tortoise only get better.

 

As for helping me, I think I'm already too late, I don't think having a platoon mate would really boost my XP, unless you mean something else? Do team battles get you more XP or something? I've hardly ever played them. I just play random battles and invite people to the platoon for the extra XP. I appreciate the offer, though.

Nah, there are no bonuses for platooning.  My offer was primarily for showing you how I played the AT15 for what I remember as being a rather enjoyable experience.  The Tortoise got old for me quickly, since to my scrublord mind the top gun is the only thing it has going for it.

There is for platooning, tier 4+ platoons get an XP bonus (Apparently somewhere around 1.5x). My question was in regards to team battles. I did a quick google that said no, but that was over a year ago so I don't know if anything has changed.

I liked Tortoise very much. Yes it's slow and cumbersome, but when you find a sweet bush outside of enemy's view range and start dishing out 400 dmg every 5 seconds... pure joy.
