So, what plans do you guys have to finish the grind as fast as possible? Just cycle between Tier6-8 tanks until you gain enough base experience? Current event is going to have intel vibes... only difference is that it will be now brought to higher tier matches. Or do you guys have any ideas how to do it without yoloing?

Cycle Tier VI/VII Mostly, though I'm not planning on yoloing or anything at all, but if my tank dies then I'm immediately jumping out of that game and into another one.

Shoot tanks a lot. Preferably more than your teammates

Most of the time, I start grinding from t5, regardless of nation, tier and class; you get to learn how to play mid-tiers, as t4-t7(though I skip t4) are usually similar in gameplay, plus you get to train your crew a bit.

I think I'm just going to skip it.

The only prem tank I ground for that I actually like to play is the FV4202, and that had to be buffed 5 times to make it somewhat competitive.

So that what... 1/6?  I don't think it's worth the pain.

Instead I think I'll chill out.
I found out that someone made a mod that fixes the horrendously bad mouse handling in Dead Space.

I might go back and see if it is more fun than i remember.  

I also need to play more xcom2. And I have a whole bundle of other games on steam.

If I play WOT, it'll be on my terms.

They are talking about the tier 8 prem tank grind

I could click that button in the top right hand corner and insta get the tanks. But I wont do it.

 

I most likely will skip towards tier 8 and then play from there to get some crew training going. Or insta free exp if I might get my hands on the tier 8 premium if I dont have to spend any money. But thats unlikely since I wont be able to play a lot in the future.

Even though it wasn't the actual topic as Baldrickk pointed out, nonetheless, I'm hoping the Tier VI-VII Will be pretty decent. I'll Free-XP Atleast Sixth Sense so I won't have the Free XP To get beyond Tier V I think, and I'll want atleast the rest of the crew to have their first skill or two before moving up. Not to mention if the VII Is alright, I'll have another Tier VII To play with my friend Chaos instead of the T29.

I have ground quite a few of these so called free premiums.

But this one leaves me cold!

I have a TVP & a BC25T at tier 10 As well as 18 other's.
The tier X Italian has been compared to the Leopard but with almost an auto-loader.

My BC25T is awesome but I love my TVP most!
I have never ground the Leopard due to it's light weight & famous ammo rack.
Yes it is very accurate ( The Italian one will be as well).
But so are the Patton & Centurion AX! (But with armour)
It will have no place in Clan Wars either.
Plus if I want to snipe at tier X, I will play my Strv.

Plus Arty will splatter the Italians!

I may grind to the tier 6, but only that far.

If I could pick it up without to much of a slog. I would.
But after seeing what it is going to require to get this glass cannon!
No!
(I certainly could if I chose to...)

I've looked at the missions.
I will make sure I get stage 4 completed, & get that equipment.
If I get anything extra just down to playing a lot?
That will be a bonus.

Imagine successfully completing this grind, to be rewarded with the current tier 8 mm as well!
Then imagine your joy as you run into a Defender, Patriot, Chrysler or the Liberte...
If your lucky...

Sorry to be such a profit of doom!
But seriously Wargaming... NO!

Good luck either way!

P.S. If you have an Obj 268 V4, I am sure that the tier X Stages will be an absolute cake walk...
( Did the same person that balanced that Juggernaught, design these mission's??? HMMMMN! I WONDER!)

I mean it depends on how difficult these tier 10 missions are going to be.

I already can see that either the tier 10 mission or the exp grind mission with be like 10 times easier than the other one.

 

So thats that.

 

But well we dont know how much exp needs to be grinding and how hard the missions are going to be. I guess there really is no point thinking about that right now. However what would make sense is to play tier 8 premiums for the exp grind. Like that you will make the most exp per time unit and get yourself some nice credits as well.

If i get the free prem then ill probs just play that.

 

Italian line will be similar to the chinese td line and swedish line for me, which is dont play them often if that at all :)

I think the OP is asking about the Progetto marathon, was a bit confused from the title too.

We do know them already:

 

1) Get a High Calibre medal / Earn 5k base xp,

2) Block 4k damage 5 times / Earn 7k base xp,

3) Top on damage 5 times / 15k xp

4) Get at least 850 base xp / 30k xp

5) Block 4k 10 times / 35k xp

6) Get High Calibre 5 times / 35k xp

7) Top on xp once / 40k xp

8) Top damage 20 times / 45k xp

9) Get 850 base xp 20 times / 50k xp

10) Top on XP 20 times / 50k xp

 

The left are tier 10 only, after the / is the alternative tier 6+ grindy xp requirement per stage.

I'll look at the price in the morning and decide then whether to just buy it outright or grind a couple of levels to get a discount. Possibly I'll then get down to a days work and earn in a fraction of the time the amount of money it took to buy the Progetto, and then my weekend is free.

Looks like I am gonna boot up skyrim for weeks... to get the taste of that xp requirement off my mouth. This is not a challenge...this is torture. Then again, it is tier8 premium so it is kinda obvious that they don't want to make it too easy to obtain. I am whining once again, gonna cry a pillow now.
