I just got my first Tier 8!!! (Well unlocked it)
It's the AMX 13 90! I'm so happy!
The only downside is I'm 600K Credits shy :sad:  :angry:  :tongue:

it took you 3.8k battles to get your first tier VIII?

Make an effort to really study those big XI and X's...learn where to hit them.  I have 50 or so games in my first tier 9, and when I am dead I follow someone else and watch where they are hitting (an missing).  Good luck!

I started out using every single tank and it took me forever to find out what I wanted and focus on grinding it :tongue:

You picked an awfully complicated high tier tank. But dont worry I made the same mistake when i was about 1500 battles in, youll improve faster.

It's not a race to get a Tier VIII, you know.  I hate players with one or two thousand games at tier 8 who darted up one tree and are failing and wallowing around uselessly because they haven't learned how to play the damn game yet.
I personally didn't touch tier 8 until I was about 3000 battles in, and even then I was sucking for quite a while.

I know that the French grind can be tough ... I have the AMX 13 90 already and let me tell you that is a fun tank!  Congratulations for unlocking it and have fun (I know you will) when you buy it.

Grogdan you are in a very generous clan as small as it is for them to be able to afford to give those away is pretty special.

Is there a rush to get to TIer 8 or Tier X?

OP.... re :credits;  have you cleaned out your Depot lately? Sold unused modules?
The -90 is a FUN tank to play..but very difficult at the same time.  You will REGULARLY get put into Tier X matches.
Suggest you watch videos.. LOTS...
Good luck!~

Some of us actually play multiple tank lines, rather than just grinding up the Russian medium line. 2000 battles and you've never played in a heavy tank, much less in a French, British, or Chinese tank? Really?

:wave:  aside from the two wallet warriors I sparingly use to train my lower tier tanks I don't have a tier 8 yet.  My IS is close to being elited, but it's the only std tier 7 I own.  I have a ton of elited tier 6's and my LT's get MMed into higher tier battles

*Shrug*  zerging up the trees isn't my main focus

I read some where that after an x amount of battles you should grind to get a tier 8 medium tank.  I did that not sure if It was the best advice.

Took me 3500 for my first Tier 7. I hate grinding, so usually, once I got a Tier 6 tank, I'd start another line. Eventually I had played all the Tier 5s I cared to, kept the ones I wanted, and started moving up. Maybe I would have gotten there faster with a premium account, but no big deal.

And that's really just playing the original 3 nations. I tried a couple low-tier Brits, and ground both French lines to Tier 4, but that's it.

I enjoy playing all my tanks from Tiers 5-8, I'm in no hurry to advance.

The original garage size is large enough to do 2-3 lines consecutively without problem, really. All you really need is 1-2 credit earners and you can easily afford to run multiple high-tiers.

I didn't get my first tier 8 till almost 6k battles. Only put about 300 matches in total since I got my IS-3. I am taking my time going up the tiers to learn and get better. Because i am good enough to know, that I am not very good and have a lot to learn yet. Actually more like take what I know and master it, so I can react quickly and correctly to changing circumstances which i am not at yet.

I honestly think more people would benefit from slowing down and playing a variety of tanks. It forces you to learn different tactics and learns the pro's and con's of a lot of tanks so you can better fight them, when you face them yourself.

To OP, congratulations. To go from stock to elite is a painful grind so be ready for it. :)
