so i just got the e50 and its unplayable until you get 23k exp, and the t44 is also almost unplayable, until you get the better gun, how can it be that when you get a new tank you get punched in the head with a steel fist, because you are going for a tier higher, a tier 9 with a tier 6 gun  !!! rly how is that a thing, 150mm pen, its not ok in tier 9. wtf wargaming, why is it still a thing

Put Enhanced Washers on it so you can put the L71 or L100 gun on it. No point playing it with a 7.5cm gun.  DPM with the stock turret will be 2500 ish. But L100 gets 3500 with the top turret. It's all worth the grind when you get to that point.

Tanks without a turret are unplayable.

I try and only grind 1 line at a time, less soul destroying than playing 2 or 3 under gunned, slow tanks.

 

Having not long ago completed the T-44 grind from stock to fully upgraded ( on my F2P account )  you have my sympathy, that 85mm vs T10's >.<

WG wants you to free xp past the stock configuration, its one of the ways they try to make players pay money to ease the grind.

My advice, just bot through. Use some x2/3/4 and personal reserves and you'll be ok.

For such tanks, Free XP is awesome. Generally save up your free XP for unlocking critical modules on higher tier tanks (usually guns) to make the grind less harrowing.

I did it for the ST-I, because there was no way i'd use its stock gun at T9; (175mm pen, on a slow HT.... Nope, not doing that! ) So played other tanks (mainly KV-4) & used the (free) XP boosters to increase free XP generation till i could buy the second gun so my stock grind would not be as terrible.

 

In short the advice is: Don't spent free XP on unlocking new tanks, rather save it to unlock critical modules on tanks (usually guns) to save yourself from terrible stock grinds.

Use free xp to unlock ALL modules, especially on higher tiers. With events like this one, i.e. x4 for your first victory, it is fairly easy to rack up a lot of free xp. Don't be scared to let newly unlocked tanks sit and wait until you got what you need. There are plenty of them around to play and there is no grand prize for unlocking any TX.

Wonder how this guy will react once he finds out that the IS-2-II comes with 120mm pen stock guns.

Alternatively you can team up with some clanmates and let them carry you while your tank isn't in top state - or combine both ;)

  1. Ferdinand (8.8 gun)
    Felt like I wanted to rip my eyes out when playing Ferdinand with that 8.8cm BB gun. Now with top gun its manageable
     
  2. T43
    Because f-U. I have to unlock the tracks and 2nd turret in order to use the gun (get this) that I already have unlocked before.
     
  3. Valentine (IV tier British "light&quot;)
    One of the upgrades to the engine is actually less HP. And top engine is 23kmh.

 

About the "non turreted TDs"

I dont understand why WG doesn't give any difference between turreted and non turreted TDS. There is a clear adv. to playing turreted vs non turreted tds. (even if they exist within the same nation)


I think that WG needs to give some major buffs and distinguishment between these two td chassis. For example the non turreted tds would be: faster, better dpm and/or accuracy/gun stats. Like reduced bloom)

either save up free XP and use it too unlock modules. or power through and grind it all ... can't make it any easier than that
