Do you earn more XP on the line? No. 

 

So your crew XP increases with a coefficient of 1.5, that's pretty crap, you can increase by 300% with boosters. 

 

Most pointless overhyped event ever. It'd be of value of you actually earned more XP on the line, say by about 50%. W

It's not.. atleast for me. Always ignore them and grind what I want to get. Not what's on a rather mediocre special

1.: Crew xp on a newly bought Tier X tank is really nice, especially on light tanks.
2.: you get big discounts for the tanks
3.: you also can get some XP Boosters
4.: are you really complaining how crapsomething you get for free and regularly is? When a tank that you want comes up Its a great opportunity to make the grind easier, if you dont want the tank dont do it.

You don't earn more Combat XP on the line.

 

Your crew xp increases with an additive 1.5 coefficient (it's like having a crew xp booster of 50% constantly running).

 

You do get cheaper tanks though, and that 50% is very valuable if you want to train crews towards those same tanks.

 

As for the 300% crew xp boosters, those only come from actually playing TOTT (or by buying them from WG) so ppl like me who don't have tons of T10's see value in those same boosters.

In fact, the value of those 300% crew xp boosters for a player like me is much higher than the value of the 100% combat xp boosters.

I'm just saying it doesn't deserve the hype. 

 

And it would be far more useful if it helped with the grind XP wise, by like 50%. That's what it should be.

2mil off of a Tier X is pretty hype to me - the only problem is the community almost never votes for the tanks I actually want.

The odd occasion that it does happen though, I get a nice discount and a bunch of useful boosters just for playing the Tier X.

 

So it's rarely something that affects me personally, but I'm certainly glad it's there for the times it does.

That will never happen.

Most grinds have an XP sink along the way, why would they make it easier to bypass that xp sink and make it less likely ppl will pay real money to free xp past it.

 

You can also do your research and guess in advance what tanks will be top of the tree.

T-100 LT was obvious pick 2 weeks ago.

And there is a high probability that after T-100 LT, the next tank will be the 268 4.

Ah, misunderstood you then, sorry my bad.

Well, i dont see it that much hyped. Hardly anyone really cares about it or plays/grind for it.

2 mill creds is like 1 hour of credit grinding with 50% booster everyone just got for free.. I'd rather grind credits and get a tank I want than hoping to get lucky and something I want gets picked

Is there a hype around them? I did not notice that :)

 

I more or less ignore them. Ofc I am happy if the event matches what I am currently grinding. But since I am at best grinding 2 or 3 tank lines a year thats not happening all that often.

Besides the credits discount on the tanks, which is frankly only noticeable from tier 8 and onwards, I dont even see the point of that event. Or at least I cannot see a reason to be hyped.

 

PS: I dont think this event is even designed for players who already have lots of tier 10 tanks. Its there for the newer players with bad crews and only a few tier 10. But thats alright, even great for them.

2mil creds is like 1h of credit grinding with 50% booster for you xx984, and for ppl like the ones in your clan, CSA, FAME.

Not everyone has access to tons of t8 premiums, has credit booster running constantly, and has reached a point where they can do 4700 wn8 recent.

 

Your average player is at 1000 wn8 or below that, doesn't have premium account, or many t8 premiums with top notch crews.

This event is awesome for them.

Well, I think TOTT can be useful. I am trying to consolidate the tanks I have and enjoy playing the most, to improve their crew skills so having a X1.5 xp on my crew has really influenced my tank choice. The only tank I have that could benefit from TOTT is my T-34-85 regular so take a look at the battle count difference over the last 30 days and it's clear that I was turning down the better T-34-85M in favor of the X1.5.

 

 

The only reason I even played the T-34-85M was to get the X3 or any other boost it happened to give the crew. Interesting to see that the so called "OP" T-34-85M is only worth about 1 more shot than the regular or any other tier6.. but maybe the sample size isn't big enough.

Was going to say the same. Seems that so many unicums suffer from a syndrome that has them expecting everyone to be capable of everything they are themselves.

There's even a name for it, can't for the life of me remember what it is though.

I have 14 unlocked tier 10 tanks. Waiting for top of the tree means around 27.000.000 savings. Good special.

I dont see the problem? Everyone was given 2 50% credit boosters for free due to the event going on currently. And you could spend that 1 hour of 50% credits to yolo every game and still be able to probably make a crapload of credits
