Just wondering what people's approach to Battle Pass is? Do you just pick a tier 6+ tank and play, or do you have a strategy?

I did the last Battle Pass mainly using various tier 6 tanks as the mood took me, but I can't help wondering if this wasn't the best way to complete stages and max out the cash.

I'm thinking it's a no-brainer that using tier 8 prems would earn lots of creds whilst completing stages, but can anyone think of a downside to this approach?

Yes, this is probably the best advice for the whole game really, I'm probably over-analysing the whole thing in fairness :)

Tier 6 and 7 are most efficient to grind the battle pass points, as you max them out and get the bonus points the quickest.

But in general, just play whatever the hell you like.

Tier 6 gives the best returns when maxing tanks, plus it's easier getting top 3 more often.

Best is to win every game and finish first on xp. For the tryhards with the selected tier 10 (TVP or patton?).

Is there actually any reason why there are bounty equipment with the exact stats as the standard ones? I mean why bother giving a pig a different name just cause you put lipstick on it?

They can be upgraded into becoming the same as improved equipment (3 mil credits).

The most efficient way is playing mainly tier 6 tanks, because you need only 100 points to get 15 points for free. On tier 7 you already need 250 to get 20 as a bonus. 

So if you want to clear the stages fast, play the tier 6 tanks. You can still grind out your Tier 8s once there are no 6s (and 7s) left in your Garage.

I just play tanks that I want to play, as long as they're tier 6+.

Pretty sad that tier 5 doesn't make progress, since it is a tier that has Marks of Excellence..

Worth mentioning. If you played the last Battle Pass, the Road to Berlin mode and now this one, you'll basically end up with a full set of Improved Equipment that's a whole lot cheaper to use (after improving it, which granted is a hefty 12mil) since you can simply move it around to the next tank you're going to play. It's.. really quite ridiculous.

Tier 6 is your best bet.  The game play is so much nicer and you get the additional points really fast.

Thanks for the help - looks like I had accidentally ended up taking the best path by accident when I chose to use Tier 6 last time because there are a lot of tanks I enjoy playing, so I'll do the same again :)

Just Tier 6. 

Mechanics behind it are pretty simple. T6 needs 100 points for a free 15 points. So over the 19.5 tanks needed to complete L45 you will see 285 free points awarded.

T10 in comparison is the worst for efficiency. 3 tanks will just about complete L45. You will however only get 105 free points.

Looking at it another way:

1 game is 8 minutes, Average game points is about 5.

so T6 is 285/5 x8 /60 = 7.6 saved hours.
T10 is 105/5 x8 /60 = 2.8 saved hours.


Another bonus to this is regular blueprints. If you take the time to unlock all trees up to level 6 then you have a good portion of the in game tanks unlocked. Meaning you will only receive higher value blueprints or Universal/National prints. So you increase the potency of that reward mechanic. I did this after the last big update that returned a lot of blueprints, and now have every nation complete to at least t6, and since doing it both national and universal prints have actually started to increase at a noticeable rate.

See the post above yours (thanks btw, Iceni1). 

 

Looks like by playing Tier 6 mainly, I had unwittingly fallen into the optimal strategy but without knowing why - worth asking the question imho :)

Last time I "mined out" nearly all my premium Tier VI tanks (and I have them all).  You get the same 7/5/3 point as you would for higher tiers and you hit the maximum point barrier quite soon which gives an extra 15 points.  This time I'll be pushing my Tier VII's a lot more.

I just play. I didn't realise until too late last season that each tank had a limited number of battles allocated. I still managed level 6 of the extended, bonds, rewards. I will watch that more closely this time, but I am not going all out to get the most rewards that I can.
