That gets better though. Grinding for XP/credits with a low tier tank is useless (because you make fuck all with them). Grinding really only becomes viable when you hit tier 6 (for mediums at least), IMO.

SPG's are pretty good for this as well (I'm using my Hummel to make some extra cash, you usually get somewhere between 20k-50k per game).

Eh? Makes perfect sense to me. Natural progression. You have to play the proceeding tank to get the current one, the current one to get the next one, the next one to get the one after that and so on. Or do you mean sideways across the Tier?

Noooooooooo! never convert gold to silver! it's a colossal waste of money! The conversion rate is so low. You'll burn through that 600 k once you're up a few tiers, after which time you'll start making that much money in a few days play. Use gold for premium account, and if you want crew training and converting XP (once you've researched EVERYTHING on a tank, it becomes "elite" and any excess XP earned on it can be converted, with gold, to free xp that can be used on any tank you like. Conversion rate is 25 XP - 1 gold). Also, never buy premium ammo. Waste of money again.

If any of you lot want to take part in the clanwars bit but are struggling for numbers, why not join a clan like BSC ( www.bsc-community.com )
We need more numbers to have a better shout at the clanwars bit but are already getting games in on that front

Managed to have a few more games over the weekend and armed with Raps advice I've managed to save blowing all my gold on crap. I currently have a PzIV with 100% crew and the nasty 7.5 L/70 which seem to be ripping lower tier heavies apart atm.

I also bought the T14 as a support heavy tank and do pretty well in the low-mid tier games, if I'm matched up against anything bigger than a KV-1s then I'm in trouble. The Hetzer has to be my favourtie at the moment, I've armed it with the ridiculous 10.5cm howitzer which one shots anything tier 4 or lower.

I have added Rap and pHk to my friends but there is no way to know if you two can see my messages? I suppose I better get my ass back on Mumble

Yeah don't ever use gold on credits.

Remember not to sell your crew with the tank, send them to barracks, buy next tank without crew then retrain them to 90% for 20000credits each. It's not really worth it til your tier5+ though.

I did look at the stats of the Stug and it has more HP but less armour. Are the guns similar as well or do they pack more of a punch? The advantage of the Hetzer is that I'm only matched a few tiers above tier 3 which means I can still roll with the best of them. I've nearly unlocked it so I will find out pretty soon.

I'm sure you have all talked about which tank you like most previously in this thread but after a few months of playing what are you all enjoying tanking in at the moment?

IS, although waiting for is3. KV3 level'd up fully was great as well. As was su85/su100.

ISU-152 with the BL10 is the bees knees. Object 704 is less fun, but only because you're more frequently matched with tier 10's. Currently levelling up an IS and T-43 simultaneously. Loving mediums again now I'm back in the higher tier ones. Bestest, most funnest tank in the game remains the Marder II though.

You end up using the same 105 gun on the StugIII as the Hetzer... I played Russian in the beta, so though I'd give German a try... I had more fun in the Russian armour!

Stug is so quick and maneuverable you can almost play like a medium, especially in city maps.

Dont know if anyone has seen this fansite but it lists all the Tanks and weapons for each tier in a nice graph:

Time to grind my T-28 so I get a KV with that 155mm monster!

I agree, the new voices at the start of each map are worse than before. I saw someone with a Tier 7 American TD last night, how the hell did he manage that in one day!?

Lots and lots of free xp stored up.

I have about 10k from the last week. He's probably been storing it up for this. Or converting with gold.

There's a poll on the WoT site where about 70% of people have voted that the new voices are shit
