After 8 years and 34,700 battles, I finally just unlocked this!

 

 

Will be honest, I only had to unlock the Manticore, but thanks to the overwhelming amount of fragments I got today, I could skip the T9 British LT. Which so far, was a huge amount of suffering getting there.

As far as skipping tanks with free exp, I have not skipped a single tank in the tech tree, with the only exception being the Tier 9 Foch. I fully used free exp to unlock the Tier 10 Foch, just before it got the gun change, so I could keep the Foch 155 as a reward tank back then.

 

I have only really used a lot of free exp to upgrade most of the tanks, to avoid playing in stock config.

 

The final trees I did, before the British LTs, were all the arties. Which was a long boring session of clicking my way to tier 10.

 

As for tier 10 tanks in my garage goes:

 

Currently only missing the Manticore in my garage.

Every single other tier 10 vehicle is now in my posession, including some special ones: FV 215B 183, FV 215B, Foch 155 and M60.

 

So what now?

Am I done with the game? Definitely not!

 

My next goal: Trying to get at least one Ace tanker on every vehicle and trying to get at least 1 mark on every possible tank, and possibly 2 or 3 on whicever tanks I manage to get that.

 

 

What are some of your all time goals in WoT?

Do you plan on getting Senior Technical Engineer at all?

I know a lot of people only bother with a few selected lines.

Let me know. :)

I'm 6 tanks away. And I just did the Polish tier 9 now after using all the nationals on that. And I will get enough to skip or make the grind fast and easy to get it before the end of the year.

 

Then what? Well I have 50 garage slots. I suspect I will rebuy some to ace etc.

The amount of fragments is absolutely insane. I think a lot of us will be able to instantly research most of the new tech trees that might get introduced in the future.

At least the double biased line.

I never used to be in such a hurry either. But a few months ago I noticed that I had pretty much every tier 8 unlocked, then got closer to having almost every tier 9.

At that moment I just thought: Screw it! I'm gonna get it done before 2020! :izmena:

Well done sir!

(I assume you're a sir...)  I got the medal the other day. Played at least 50 battles in each vehicle on the way up. Still need to buy three tier 10's. The Manticore, the Progetto 65 and the UDES 15/16.

I am waiting for any discounts on tier 10's before I purchase them. I seem to remember there being a 15% discount on Christmas past events so maybe I'll get them then. Either that or I still have to save another 5.5 million silver....

As for goals, I'm aiming for those three tanks and then just take it a day at a time.

I'm certainly not good enough to mark my tanks so that's off the table.

Nice job!

I'm lucky that I was quite a hoarder with most tanks. I didn't end up selling most of them. So I had a lot of spare tier 7, 8 and 9 tanks to sell, so I could buy most tier 10's.

Definitely planning on buying back the whole tech tree.

It will take a while to get those credits.

I'm also happy that low tier discounts will become interesting for me again. :teethhappy:

Congrats, I am close as well. :-)

 

My goal is to have every single tech tree vehicle in garage, crewed and aced.

Sometimes I think about that... :teethhappy:

But spamming gold will probably make me lose too many credits to be able to buy back the tech tree. :P

I have enough tanks. Just want to get an Ace in the ones I enjoy.

I feel that I have proved that I have no place at tier X. I have played two battles every day this last couple of weeks for Tank Rewards using first of all the Grille 15 (now sold) and the IS-7 (total loser tank). I have previously sold the Object 268 and the Bat Chat 25t, in which I totally sucked. I have no desire to buy any other tier X, with the exception possibly being the T-62a.

 

Meanwhile, I have a couple of X researched, and I have a few IX that I am not terrible with and may well keep for missions and events. They will eventually be Elite and the X researched. The problem comes lower down the tiers.


I gave up on French TDs after researching the AMX AC 48. I have never bought it. I sold the tier VIII HT mid-grind. Hated it! I have never played the tier VI SPG researched from the AMX 12t. Believe me, across the trees and tiers, the list goes on and on.
 

I always wanted to settle down and stop grinding but it is only recently that I have decided that this day is very close- or already here. I will continue to head towards the T-62a over time, but I honestly believe that, otherwise, I may well have bought my last new tank.

 

Edit- Told a lie. I am actively grinding the FV3805 for the CGC, ONLY- and I mean ONLY for PMs.

Congratulations StronkiTonki! Always great to achieve a long term goal you set & yours is particularly impressive. Now you got access to all the tech tree tanks wot has to offer, giving you a wide variety to pick from.

 

Don't really have a long term goal outside collecting fun armored tanks & collect Steel Walls with it.

Well done... it is my aim as well to research every vehicle in the game...

Though now I can do it by just playing my favourite mid tier tanks and getting enough Blueprints from Reward boxes, never have to play a tech tree T8 or T9 vehicle again... it may take a long time, but I will get there in the end !
