Hello,

 

on which tank is it worth to spend the free exp on? I am thinking about using my free exp to unlock the 107mm gun on my KV-4. Or should I save it for tier 9 tanks?

Personally i save free xp for tracks and guns etc so i don't have to grind stock tanks, but each to their own.

Noone really, but if you insist on the IS-M.

did you have a fully upgraded IS-3. If yes, spend the free exp on the 107mm, otherwise I would suggest you to keep it to unlock the 122mm BL-9 on ST-I or your grind will be painfull! 

I can assure you, because I had to unlock the BL-9 using the 175 pen D-25T on tier 9!

Hard question to answer, I now have my Conqueror fully upgraded and my Type 4 with everything except the monster gun, the next thing I am aiming for is the ISU 152, heard it is a bit of a troll cannon and that appeals to me:trollface:

KV-4 stock wasn't easy, but so was ST-1 with stock turret (you really need bl-9). Definitely considerable.

Zis-24 is a really cool gun btw.

Generally I freexp tracks and gun on tanks Tier 8 and up. And sometimes Tier 7 tanks. Can generally deal with stock engine and radio (if none carry over), but this way I can at least install all the equipment I need as well as hit stuff.

Because it's been my first tier 9. I was still quite noob and rushed tier, almost as any other at the beginning. ;)

I try to do this. It's not always possible since I'm still in the middle of all sorts of grinds. There's only one actual tank that I used free exp to get rid of and that was the infamous Arl V39. I even converted some with gold.

I use free XP for modules as well. The only ones I have skipped are low tiers, with the most extreme one being skipping to tier 6 on the Czech tech tree. Don't think I skipped more than 20 low tier tanks. I guess I could check from my stats when bored.

 

The thing about skipping with free XP is that you save some credits and hassle at low tiers, without it costing an arm and a leg in free XP. Alternatively, I do sometimes play low tier tanks if I have a 4 skill crew in it, which that runs the tank with food, without retraining and some equipment ... which cost gold to remove.

Answering for myself because I am usually grinding way to many tanks anyhow - so I can't be assed to freexp all relevant modules on all of them - I usually use my free xp for 2 things: cheap unlockable modules (tracks/guns/turrets), last few hundred xp for a new tank (so the old one can be elite without xp on it). 

I know it's my own fault, but I kinda like the feeling of learning each tank from scratch - and getting better modules in doing so feels like I was getting better in that tank. Yes, I do know I am fooling myself.

 

So, it's either streamlining grinds and freexping the harder bits or the broadband approach where you are slowly getting along all lines. - once you got all lines, it will be streamlining anyhow xD
