Well I've finally bought my first tier 10 tanks and I'm already wondering why I bothered.  Granted the two lines I had ground got me the JPzE100 (a turd) and the Object 268 (a bigger turd) so I wasn't expecting much, but do people actually have fun here?  

I've just had about 10 games with absolutely zero fun involved.  As far as I can tell T10 battles seem to be made up of perpetual gold spam, even more arties per battle than normal, maps that can't handle super high view ranges, and no evidence of the players being any better than any other tier. 

So while I go back and play my Hellcat for a bit (where I usually have fun win or lose) why do people play Tier 10?

That is exactly what you should do, have fun in your Hellcat. Tier X doesn't bring a smile to my face, tier IX maybe. I have a whole bunch of tier X tanks and I can't be bothered to play them or even put good crews in them.

Lots of reasons; Prestige, improving crew for CW, learning how to beat other tier X tanks in battle, MoE, stats per battle, easier to do some missions, etc. Also, Tier X performance is generally the measuring stick used by clans.


 

Totally agree that it ain't what it used to be and without prem account/tanks its not really sustainable for the average player. Honestly, if you are having fun at whatever tier just go for it. If you are serious about team side of game though tier X is where you need to be.

What bob said, plus all the good guns are at tier 10, you may get some gems in the lower tiers but if it was a straight up choice between my KV1S and the IS7, the the IS7 would win.

It may well do, but tonight tier 8 is not shining bright either.

Because people think that tX is the goal of the game or the endgame content.

Stopped playing TX a long time ago. Its the worst balanced tier in the game.

No tier shines as long as 3-5-7 is operative.

Only people play tier X who takes this game TOO seriuosly.

because tier X is money sink.

When you play tier X, you have to pay hard cash for this game. 

(No matter how good player you are)

 

 

Edit: do not forget this game is free-to-play. Question: How would you name a game, where the endgame content is accessable only if you pay?

You can easily gather the credits you need to support you tier 8+ games just with mid tier tanks or one premium tank of any tier. No need to pull out that credit card. One thing is for sure though...you still have to git gud in all tiers if you want to make any credits.

Tiers X not to be bottom tiers.

 

But even that changed (more and more tX ?), as you only get full tiers X battles. And if you don't have some good tank and gold and food you'll have hard times.

 

Because you know : "I am marking it, that is why I spam gold" ...

 

Tiers IX is the best tiers now.

The level of insults are of a better class in tier 10 battles, you can learn new swear words and smile at some of the more colourful rants. Can't think of any other reasons.

tier X is a lot of fun most of the time - I actually enjoy to ruin the day for those OP tier VIII prem players. And I get 3-5-7 MM half the time. Full tier X is not that bad either.

 

3-5-7 is not a problem for those newer t8 prems, but for those older powercreeped prems and tech tree tanks. And it effs platooning too...

Back then I used to play tier X, battles were lacking players so it was often under 15 players per side and half of those were artys. Tier X was not very interesting then. I usually play only up to tier IX, the tier X is usually just an improvement on tier IX tank which I am already totally bored with after gaining that 300 000 exp in it. So wont buy them.

I play tier X so I can play monsters such as FV (183) and JgPz E 100. What other tier can give you a gun that deals 1000+ damage per shot? :D
