So, another new nation tree is getting released, and a lot of people have been waiting (and crew training for it). The questions on the poll are simple and straight forward. Personaly, the first tier 10 battle I que up for, I expect to see top tier Chinese heavies and/or mediums in the match. It might be good, but then again....

It comes down to choice. Some people will grind the tree out. They will learn (and some will enjoy) the progression through the tiers. Others, they just have to have their top of the line brag-toy, getting their attention from all of the "How's the ........, Is the ......... good" questions. Unless they spent a lot of time in the test servers, I would take their answers with a grain of salt, and see how they really do with their "new toy".

This has all happened before, and this will happen again (movie quote, now, which one?).

Another bad poll

You are supposed to SEPARATE the Bacon from the real poll.

I'll go throught all of them but free xp the tier 4, 99% of the tier 4 are bad, this one will probably be no exception.

I will be free exp'ing to the T-34, then grinding to the tier 10 med with my current type crew. Will probably end up being my first 4 skill crew (100% 4th) as they will be starting at about 80% 2nd

it rivals the tiger's damage with less pen and is on a tier 7 light tank... I hate lights and Im going to have to go on the light route.

It likely shouldn't take too long, so I shall grind to Tier 5 and go from there.

i usualy grind the lines, that being said i will first take a look at what they offer if its another british with crap heavys till end game i wont even bother.

as rommel said dont rush to the high tiers, they usualy make them op so everyone free exp to get them and then nerf it when the avg grinder start getting them.
