Hi everyone,

 

as the title says I have around 270k free xp and I am quite undecided how to spend them. There is a few lines I might want to try, so maybe you can help me decide.

 

Swedish TD line :

 

I am not a fan of red line camping or passive gameplay, but I do like how these tanks look, honestly this is the only reason why I am thinking about this line. My free xp would take me up to tier 8 and with the Swedish crew from last Year I could do some crew training until I unlock tier 9. So is this one worth it just for the looks of it ?

 

Amx 13 90 :

 

I do like scout tanks and with recent buffs to this line it feels like 13 90 is a beast while firing on the move. I don't have any of the French light tanks, but I did free xped them to 12t a long time ago. Every time I face 13 90 I can see them hitting every shot on the move, similar to 62a or 140 gun handling. I checked tanks.gg and the stats are like 0.12 for 13 90 and 0.08 for 140 without any equipment, so with Vert Stab this might be a fun tank to drive. If you own 13 90 can you clarify for me that it's a great tank for firing on the move or am I just seeing things ?

 

Skoda T-50 :

 

When this line came to WoT, I free xped to tier 6 and I am currently at tier 7. I know, I know, very slow paced grinding. The Jap medium line took me around two Years and I free xped most of the lower tiers. Never the less, with let's say 20k more xp grinded on this tier I could use my free xp to go to tier IX and unlock all the modules. I did buy Skoda T-40 when it came and I have 4 skill crew on it, (around 78-80% 4th skill). I have the crew ready and I do enjoy tier IX's. We all know tier IX and X are great, almost as America wants to be again. So is the one to go for ?   

 

If You guys have a different suggestion, then by all means post it.

I would suggest not to waste FreeXP on complete tank lines but rather use it to unlock modules of each tank so you can play it fully upgraded from the start.

It is up to you what play style do you like TD,LT or MT.

 

I am LT fan so: 13 90 > T-50. But both are decent tanks.

Only played the Swedish TD's up to the UDES. It's kinda fun, and you get great pen with good DPM. But the siege mode, and going in and out of it etc killed it off for me. It takes to long to get out, so if you are spotted, you are usually dead if more then one high caliber gun aims at you. Those tanks you either love or hate going by most.

 

13 90 is my fav light. Even more so after the LT changes. It lost 2 rounds in the clip, but the DPM went up as the reload was greatly reduced. Making it way more flexible. It's a great light for both passive and active spotting. And ideal if you like hit and runs, and some bullying in the side vs sitting back to farm damage or assist.

 

Skoda is arguably one of the worst stock grinds for me on tier 9. Even more so then the AMX 30 with the 1600 dpm on the 100mm and stock turret. I hated the tank then. Lacked dpm, lacked pen, lacked mobility, even with a 4 skilled crew until you got all of the modules. Then it was a rather fun tank to play. Tho burst damage is low, the reload is fast. But it's a great support tank or a wolfpack tank.  So if you lack XP to get all the modules, just keep that in mind.

That is exactly what I am using my free xp for. The thing is I hate T34/100 and even when TVP VTU is overpowered (it can take down Defenders with ease) I don't think I would enjoy it, hence use free xp to skip those tanks and unlock all the modules on tier IX.

I like MT and LT, the only TD I enjoy is the Jagdtiger and I already have that. But I do have a few keepers which I enjoy only because I like how they look.

Free xp would get me all the modules, so that is why I am thinking about it.

Ok so it's between 13 90 and Skoda, I might flip a coin for it. Although I am slightly leaning to 13 90 even if would have to scavenge the crew for it from unused members in my barracks. They all have dodgy past and one to two skills at the most.

why would you waste Free XP for a tank like that if you can unlock a glorious artillery instead?

TVP line for sure. Everything except the T9 and T10 is utter trash but those two tanks are well worth it... dumping 1k damage on people in ~3s at T9 just feels dirty and unfair. The TVP just does everything better a tier higher.

Amx 13-90 is a lovely tank. But the gun handling is not quite like you think it is,  at mid distances you can forget hitting all the shots while moving . In close range yes.

 

I actually like all the French lt's, except the ELC. You need a good crew to make that tank work, while the 13-75 is my fav tank in my garage, i even started 2 new crews to have them for the tier 9-10 LT's and kept  my best trained crew in the 13-75.
