Not knocking the suggestion, but I've maxed out both my tier 6 tanks. My tier 7 is now on less than 10% of those available. I've so far only got 5 BP points on my tier VIII. Some of us are not very good as we play higher tier tanks and so having the "ability" to earn more points is not that great an incentive!

What matter is the amout of tanks and battle count.

I have maxed out only one tank, tier6 and I am on lvl 70+.

You are a better player than I. I'm on 31 on an average of 20 battles a day :facepalm:

Thank you for all the suggestions, I'm 100% sure now that I'm getting a t8 tank with my bonds for extra coins and bp points. Just unlocked my first t8 and don't have the coins to buy it. :(

Thats always the problem for new players lack of credits.

 

Take a look at the personal missions while they take a lot of time and effort to complete all the missions "15 for each tank type" the first few missions in each group are not that hard and give you a decent amount of credits.

Apologies to the OP for hijacking with talk of Battle Pass levels.....

 

But...

I have myself a little system/method for B-P progression:-

I aim to do 2 B-P levels a day... But give myself two days a week where I only need to get 1 level (Monday and Friday tend to be the days I get least time to play) - So a total of 12 levels a week - I have a schedule in a notebook, and try to stick to it.

Starting from the beginning of B-P, it means I can comfortably complete it with a few days to spare. Currently have level 41 completed before I start playing today - which is 4 levels ahead of my schedule.

Tactics...

I play for the 3 daily missions every day - that gives 45 points alone, so by the time you complete those, the B-P points you get per game mean you'll usually complete one level (50 pts.) and have a significant start on the next one.

After unlocking the 4th daily mission... I'll also do that if it isn't too difficult - If it's cumulative I'll play until I've done it (X number of Crits.. ..Hits.. total dmg.. total XP) - If it's skill-based... say... Top by dmg or xp.... I'll play until I've completed the second B-P level for the day - If I hit the extra mission, great... If not, I don't sweat it.

Also, you get 50 B-P points (a full level) as a bonus every so often for completing 50 daily missions cumulatively over time - A nice bonus approx once per 7-to-10 days.... ish....

So far this tactic has netted me enough tokens to get the Phase 1, the 777, and the Char Futur.... And if I can stick to the schedule on this current B-P, I'm expecting the Kunze at level 140 - some time towards the end of November.

So far I've paid gold to upgrade the first section of each B-P for some extra tokens, prem days, credits etc... I might upgrade section two fir this B-P to guarantee I can get the tokens for the Kunze a bit earlier... just in case I fall behind schedule.

As far as I know, tokens get reset after last B-P of the year, and I'd hate to save say 10 or 11 tokens then get reset for bonds when only one token away from the Kunze - Then have to start saving again next year.

 

Anyhoo - Enough of my B-P waffling.....

 

OP - I fully support the majority who say to get a tier 8 premium.

The credit and xp earning potential alone, make it a FAR more attractive proposition than a tier 10 for a newer player.

Well you can always get a tier 9 premium one that suits your playstyle so you probably enjoy playing it and if it can train crews you have now or plan to get later thats a bonus.

If you start toi struggle at that tier np pull back to lower tiers and just use the tier 8 for one or two battles when you want to.

Eventually you will progress in the game and be happy at that tier.

 

Battlepass couple of levels per day is what I go for too, I unlocked the second track with gold I got last christmas and if for some reason I am not able to finish in time I can use gold for that too.

Daily missions give 10-15-20 and 25 points so 70 points in all and assuming I get the bonus mission which I don't allways complete I can probaby get 3 levels most days.

Also have quite a few tier 6 tanks and after earning 100 points they give me an extra 15 bp points.

For me thats the secret of good progress in Battlepass.

I will get to 100 points on most of my tier 6 tanks, tier 7 and 8 takes way more time and you don't get that many more points.

If a tier 6 gives 15 extra bp poiints when you get to 100 points but a tier 7 you have to get 250 points to get 20 extra points and a tier 8 its 400 for 25 extra.

Just to steer this to the mid-ground between bonds and battle pass, all my bp tokens get converted to bonds, so that's 1300 per chapter on the standard path, which is a nice little boost.

 

I've done a spreadsheet calculation and the standard path bp rewards are about £4.75 in store bought value. The enhanced ones are around £18. The break even point is around chapter 30/31 (80, 130 in later chapters) depending on whether you value garage slots (I don't. I have 12 tanks and 86 vacant garage slots). 

 

And just out of interest, why is there a "destroy" bond equipment option? I can see why you might want to unmount it from a particular tank, but destroy seems to be a big waste of earned bonds for no benefit. Wouldn't you just leave it in the depot?

Chinese Alpine Tiger is T8- premium with Limited MM, meaning you don't see TX... just a thought

 

Looks pretty good as well, is there a way to see how much % chance there is to get in a game with t10?

 I understand that, but what's the chance with normal t8 tanks?

Tier 6 always see tier 8.

Tier 8 always see tier 10.

IDK. 50/50 I guess.

The maths is too complicated for me.:D

totally depends upon the day, time of day, what other game modes are running etc.

I'm grinding 2 x regular T8 tanks at the mo. play 20-30 games a day. some times I only see TX games, others I only see T8 (15 per side) and then sometimes T8-T6. there is no percentages I ca n offer - sorry.

Well, probably to have the option. If you have no demounting kits and are unwilling to spend gold there is no other option then to destroy any equipment that you would want to replace.
