  1. Alright, I have 180k in free XP and like 400 boosters for free XP. I want to grab the 215b before it disappears and I don't have a lot of time to play.

    Where is the free XP best spent on this line? I'm fine with skipping a tank.

      If i had 180k and 180k only this is what i would do:

      -60K L1A1 on conq

      -28k turret on conq

      -14k turret on caernaveron

      -16k gun on caernaveron

      If you have absolutely no module unlock on the BP i would just buy all the module including gun, engine and track for a total of 25k

      And i agree with @GloriousPotatoes the churchill VII was pretty bad i would spend some free xp there for the module which can go up to ~20k if you have not played the mediums.

      =163k

      That leave you with ~17k of free xp that i really wouldn't spend on skipping an entire tank (you really don't have enough xp) but i would spend on some cheaper modules to ease up the lower tier grind. 

       

      Also it's hard to tell which module to buy after that, did you play the medium or the TD line ? because they share a lot of guns and engines.

      Personally..

      This grind was the first time I converted free xp. Used it to (mostly) fully upgrade the caernarvon and conq, both of which are contenders for worst tanks in their tier when stock, the conq especially being painful.

      IIRC, they took a combined 250k xp, but it's been a month; I can't remenber.

      Tier 8 is already getting shit on so I thought I'd either elite the Caern or just outright skip the thing

      Probably the black prince.

      Church 7 is a least a tier 6, shortish grind and can be done in SH. BP is widely known as one of the biggest turds in the game, cearn is probably playable, and can be done in SH. Conq is good.

      *Speculation, have never played the line

      Yeah, tier 6 is no problem, but the BP and Caern are what I'm concerned about

      Black Prince was actually fun  - not good, but fun. Siscraping is quite possible, and if you're a liberal gold spammer it's a decent tank.

      Churchil VII horrible. Slowest tank of the line, and when you finally get to your enemy, everone will shoot your tracks from the front, tracking and damaging you. Even the bots hit these more than the hull. It's extremely frustuaing because you slow, have no armor and the gun is only good, not amazing.

      I did grind it though, the same way I did with my caer: brain off, spamming battles with boosters.

      Fun? First time I've heard that word used for the BP. I can definitely be a liberal gold spammer.

      I actually didn't know that about the VII, leave it to the the hoards to unknowingly take advantage of a weakspot like that. Glad I don't run XVM, because I'd probably get pretty salty if a 43% glue guzzler got that kind of shot.

      I like that list of modules to grab. I'm not sure what I have on the BP, I elited the Comet and then stopped pushing the line so I should be all set for the tier 6, I barely had to research anything on the tier 5.

       

      Credits are a big factor too, because grinding credits in a T34 with the current state of tier 8 MM is going to be.. not so fun. I guess I'll just play the tier 6 and 7, try to stomach the stock grinds, and then dump my free XP on the essentials for the tier 8 and 9.

       

      Thanks guys!

      If you elited the comet you should have the top gun on the churchill 7, possibly a radio or two. Maybe an engine? Idk. 

      Shame you didnt play the Cent 1 because then you could of gotten the 20pdr for the Cearn, and the 17 pdr for the Black prince. (In fact if you're grinding them i recommend buying the cent and doing so in strongholds to grind the modules for them)
