so there seems to be a credit issue at the moment and yes I am feeling it to. 
I managed to get up to 8 million after the bank holiday weekend with completing frontline on the Monday. I then turned my attention to the remaining 4 Alliance  mission I have left to do to get The 279e, block 2 k on av over ten battles, done in the E3. 

30 critical modules(internal) or injury crew in ten games Done in the crapbarn

allow your allies to kill on average 2 tanks by spotting them or tracking them for 10 battles. Arrrgghhhh and here is where the I now get that feeling deep in my stomach. I had loads of blueprints from the update and about 90 k free exp so I used all this to get the matincore   Without having you play a game(from tier 7-10) equpied it’s with binocs, vents, cammo net and took it for a spin(passive spotting) approx 7 mil credits spent. Used my cent ax crew to retain as they have 4 skills each. Bia, cammo, 6th sense, of road and used 400 gold to train them to a 100%. Granted I only played 6 games (1win) but given this tank is pretty well equipped I am struggling to see how the game play or to use it for I want will improve(0-1 vehicles destroyed on average in all games) 

 

anyone else had the feeling they have made a massive mistake when they purchase a tank?

1+2

1) Resuming WOT after I took a six-month break about 4 years ago. I actually thought my enjoyment of this game would improve with improvement of my skill. BS actually.

2) Installing War Thunder but not properly trying it out, in the same time frame as 1). I actually thought I could not master the interface/controls. Breeze actually.

Had you not seen a single thing written about the British lights since they were released??

They are considered to be universally crap. Don't you research a tank before sinking soo much hard earned xp and cash?

I regret heavily the amount of damage i see that I have done after tier 10 games 90% of time.

Also purchasing XP and buying tier 10 russian artilery. When i realised the error of my ways I got so angry i was close to throw my pc out of window.

Obj. 268, I knew it was not good, but the OCD part of me needs to have all my researched tier 10's in the garage. 

Not of much use though, not as primary and without crew... but it's there...

 

Edit: at least you had an idea behind the purchase ;)

I have seen a fair bit around these tanks. The main theme was don’t play them like other lights as these  are set up for passive scouting. That’s exactly how I have played and set it up for. But I was I no way prepared for how inept these tanks are. Yes I will have one or two outstanding games with it but I need consistency. The main issue people was having was ammo capacity and  DPM. To be fair you can chuck the ammo in the Bin for all I care I didn’t buy it to do a single ounce of damage.

Don’t beat yourself up over it you will need it for the personal missions.

No, because I research tanks before I buy them. There are tons of stuff on the forums, twitch and Youtube so can easily look up and tank before you buy it.

Several times — the worst is when you have that feeling after buying a premium for R/L cash. When new to the game I read an old forum on best credit earners, so bought JT 8.8. My first battle I excitedly played it, only to realise it was literally the slowest, most boring tank I'd ever played. Sold it straight away.

Buying T-54 mod 1 felt like a mistake.

But then WG buffed mobility, armor, gun depression, penetration, view range and shell amount because its Russian :)

Um...

- Starting my first line as the 121 of all possible tanks because I thought it sounded and looked cool.

- Rushing through first 10k games as a complete fool. I would probably curse at myself too if I saw how badly I played lights back then. It's taken 5 years to slowly correct my 121 WR from 41-44% to above 50. The fact that I have 97% Mark currently but in game it shows I do on avg less than 2k dmg probably will baffle a lot of people. On the WZ120 I'm at 100% Mark now with even worse figures.

- Spending several hundred $$$ in my first 3 years without a clue how really to invest in the game. I once bought 20k gold just to convert to credits since I was bleeding them in the 121 at the start.

- Selling a lot of my tier 10s and having to rebuy them back years later. Never sell tier 10s.

- Buying 20k gold in the last Black Market thinking I'd have a chance of getting a Type 59 and instead should have bought Xmas boxes for better value.

- Installing XVM in my first 4 or 5 years of playing. Life is so much better without it.
