Hello

I was in a friend who is grinding the BC 12 t to get to the AMX 30 and the BC 25 AP (he already has the AMX 13 90) and I noticed a peculiar thing.

AMX 30 at tier 9 needs 197 k xp to be researched. From there, the AMX 30 B at tier 10 needs only 180 k xp.

Is it me or that sounds strange, a t10 needing less xp to grind than a t9?

Thnks

If you say so, however the AMX30 is better tier for tier than the 30B so tell your friend not to bother with the tier 10 it's not worth it.

AMX 30 needs quite a lot of XP to be fully upgraded, my guess is that evens out in the end.

 

If anything, I think everyone would prefer a softer grind on the tank itself then do whatever needed to unlock the tier 10, but this is how this was done.

 

705/705A also have quite a small difference in what unlocking the tanks is concerned.

That's based on how much XP you need to get modules. Guns and turret alone costs over 100K XP if you do not have the 100mm gun from the HT line. And over 50K on engine and tracks etc. So well over 150 000 XP to get all the modules. Then you have the tier 9 Foch TD that has no turret, no gun upgrades. Just tracks and engine for most that cost around 25K each. Thus the tier 10 costs 290 000 xp. Or the new Russian 430 tier 9 med. No gun upgrade etc. So less xp wasted on modules. Thus the tier X is 280K. Not 210 like the other tier X Russian meds. As again you need 100K on guns alone on the T-54 to get out of the stock era vs 0 xp on the 430.

They have lots of mods though, and the tank is kinda crappy until you get it fully upgraded.

For the AMX 30 Proto, the turret (25k xp) is hidden behind a 34.5k xp gun and then the 55k xp top gun. Eliting the tank requires like 360k xp.

For the BC 25t AP, it is a bit easier because the top gun is the SA47, but if you haven't elited the AMX 50 100, you will have to research it anyway. Eliting it requires 295k, but then you have to elite the T10 too (another 45k xp).

So overall costs are about the same.

 

Most t9's require around 340-360k xp to elite and they constitute about 40% of the total xp you need to grind from T1 to T10.

This is why the T9 grind is the hardest in the game.
