RIght now I have my Tortoise fully upgraded, but there is no way I'll be able to grind out the xp to unlock the Deathstar before the next patch comes out and it gets replaced. So, the question is, is it worth blowing something like a 150,000 free-xp to get it in time. On the one hand, it's a rather iconic tank and I was slowly grinding to get it anyway. Also, the Badger doesn't look very interesting. Just one more slow, turretless TD with a high DPM gun. One the other hand, it's going to be a lot of free-xp. I have something like 300,000 lying around thanks to the xp fever events, but still...

 

I played the Deathstar once or twice on the testserver, but that is not a normal WoT environment. So, is it worth it?

Do as much as you can, free-xp the rest at the last moment.

This, but it's not really worth it IMO.

We're gonna have a lot of X3/X5 events in the next couple of months. It'll be easy to farm Free XP with boosters.

It really depends on how much you value a reward tank.

The tank itself is not great or terrible
But after the patch you won't be able to get it any more so if you value stuff like that then yes free xp it. If you don't care enough about it then leave it.

It is like 7.8k a day you need to grind, that comes to 3-5 games with reserves or 5-7 games without. Not that huge amount of battles.

If you even take in account that you will have the following events coming up:

 

* 11 - 14 november x5 XP for first win, so with some luck you only need to play 1-2games these days, which means you can do some extra these days?

* 18 - 21 november x3 XP for first win

* 24 - 28 november x2 for every battle you play, so play these days some more battles and you do easily some XP grind

 

If I was you I would grab the opportunity to grind it since the grind ain't that hard with those specials.

 

Furthermore the Fv 215(b) 183 is fun to play with, okay it is a RNG tank. But you can really have a laugh sometimes in this tank.

Didn't read to much about the Badger yet so I cannot say if it is worth it.

the only onethat can answer that question is you

 

if the tank is worth it for you can onlybe considered by you

there will probably be a testserver up soon so you could test it there to see if you want to have it

sometimes i take it for a lol but normally i stay away because of the astronimical upkeep

It's mostly frustrating to play, but is worth it imho for the odd game where your perfect shot lands and you nuke something for full HP.  Also worth it for the post game tears/salt it can generate :playing:

Got one shot yesterday in my M103 while angling vs. a BC 25t, he got a flush side turret shot and I had to go back to garage...full hp. For me it's worth it since I can't seem to deal 6k in my 704 to finish TD14 for T55A.

Sounds like emperor Palpatine's dream :)

Anyway, thanks everyone. I guess I'll be playing a lot of Tortoise games in the coming weeks.
