The last video I saw suggested the new line would come in at Tier 8. Does anyone know any different?

 

If that's the case, I presume it'll come from the AMX13 75, so is the smart move/best bet to rebuy that and start accumulating experience?

Tier 6 and up was in not as said on Gamescom? 

 

But from what tank the line starts from? Who knows. Could be a tier 6, could be a tier 5. So ELC or even the 12t. Until we know I'm not grinding anything. I've done that mistake before.

Wait till they come out then you know which tank you should rebuy. Could be researched from 13 75 or even 12t. Who knows?

I hope it's 12t for 2 reasons. 1) I love 12t. 2)Since its a T8 research from T8 tank it needs way less XP

Both good tanks and worth playing anyway.  Bet they start it at the ELC just to piss me off.

Bc 12t already leads to 3 tanks if I'm not mistaken. To add a 4th at tier 8 would be quite exceptional (unlikely) imo.

Tiger P leads to 4 lines of tanks. Even though it's tier 7 but it shows that it might happen but it's more likely that it will be researched from 13 75

I was thinking about the tiger as well.. lots of xp required to elite it. 

Also the t-34 russian med at tier 5 has 5 tanks I think can be researched right? Think I've done this a while ago.

T-34 leads to 3 tanks not 5. The most number of tanks to research from one tank belongs to Tiger P. 

Im almost done with  BC12t. already unlock 1390 and 25ap just 30k xp away from amx 30. Man it has been a long grind. almost 600k xp. That's almost enough XP to fully grind a line all the way to a Tier 10 tank.

ah, ok. Must have felt like 5 tanks:trollface:

I'm not really a big fan of russian meds. Too allround, no special features.

 

Edit: Ihad the 13 90 unlocked at tier 8 before the LT changes, got it essentially for free at tier 9. Finished the BC 25ap grind but never bothered with the 30-line. 600k xp is just too much...

The line starts at tier 5. Whether it branches off ELC or AMX 40, we don't know.

Remember there is another 12t - the AMX 12t at tier 6.  Seems unclear from this thread whether wheeled will start at Tier 6 or 8 so it could start at AMX ELC, AMX 12t or AMX 13 75.

I know, amx 12t is one of my favourite tanks :)

Hope it will start from this one

Where has this been stated?

I seem to remember the T34 Having 5 possible lines branching from it. You definitely used to be able to get to the SU85 from there. But maybe some of the lines were reachable by later splits i.e t34-85 to kv13 to IS?

Would be nice to know what tier to start base XP grind from to prepare for when they are introduced, tbh I'm interested to see how they introduce them without breaking game balance etc, particularly given that they will have the same mm weight as regular lites so you could have track vs wheeled lites which could make all the difference between a win and a loss

If it starts at tier 5 it won't take long so no need to pre-grind it.
