İm grinding Hotchkiss EBR and had 127 battles and need 60 000 more exp to finish him. And grinding is with +50 and +100% exp consumables.

My median exp is 500 exp per battle. İ will need at least 100 battles more.

Really +200 battles fot tier 7 ?

God knows hot much will i needed for tier 8 and 9.

İ grinded all tanks and this is worst ever. Make just one mistake and you are dead.

İm thinking that wheeled vehicled are like Skorpion G - mobility and no armour but with slingshot.

Can you tell me your battles with this sh...

Had anyone grinded tier 8 and 9 without free exp. How much battles and median exp per battle you did get.

i loved the hotchkiss, quite a lovely LT

 

load plenty HE and ruin paper tanks their day, racked up quite a couple 4k+ dmg games(yes dmg, not combined) that way. dont bother much with scouting as the vr is pathetic

TVP VTU is 600% worse then any wheeled tank.

If you're not enjoying a tank, put it aside and try another one and com back when the mood strikes you.  Some of my YS tanks took a couple of years to elite as they needed to gather dust at some point.

idk .. i loved that pesky little thing .. took me 86 games to grind through it and it was never "painful" ..

 

most of my "bad games" were because i myself made a mistake and took a risk that didn't pay out

 

e. talking about the EBR OP mentioned

I think he's grinding the T6 towards the Hotchkiss. I just unlocked it and it's loads of fun even with the stock engine and mid gun :)

Both 65t and VTU were more fun than the T-10 is, on my account...

Youre really fast.

Are you grinding tier 8 now?

Can you tell my your average xp per march for tier 7 and 8 ...

well .. i've only played the t8 in FL games ..

 

for the t7 .. service record says 834xp per battle .. but that doesn't account for the 100% exp booster :P

The Hotchkiss is fantastic fun, yes you can get things really wrong and die, you can also get things really wrong and get away with it.

 

It's a new type of gameplay though, don't try to conform to light tank rules.  And yes it's fast but often the best thing you can do is hold back early on then exploit weaknesses or lone enemies.

thanks to cm1994 for showcasing my replay

I had this plan to have loads of free xp ready for the line but it failed.

Luckily I had this gold left over from the Holiday ops.

 

So part played part bought my way through them to tier 8

60 games in the tier 6 and a little gold Another 54 on the tier 7 Hotchkiss and again a little gold.

Then on the Tier 8 I decided to spend nothing but in the end bought the suspension as it improved the maneuverability a lot.

Don't intend to spend any more gold and certainly not buying my way to tier 9.

TVP VTU or Type 61. Those were the worst for me. But I believe that Churchill GC is neither a funny one.

Up to around 30 games in the Lynx and I was having a bad time tbh which is why my win rate in it was below 50 at one low point the first day below 40.

Its the rapid mode normal mode. It steered badly in rapid but in normal you are only doing 58-40 not 80-60

For a while I was only using travel mode to get into and out of trouble.

Upgrading the suspension changed all that now I can race around at 80 and still turn pretty well.

Upgraded wheeled suspension isnt just stronger it increases the angle the wheels can turn.

 

btw the engines on the Lynx are completely different so you will be on the stock engine for a while but its np as the Lynx is a much lighter tank and goes just fine with an engine half the power of the Hotchkiss one.
