...how bad is the stock grind for the E-50? I still have a long way (close to 150K xp to grind out) and I've heard the horror stories of the grind. Is it really as bad as they say, or is it worse?

Other than the very first gun, they're all decent for the E-50

the major thing is that you NEEEEEEEEEEED that last engine, or you're not flanking crap :D

Free exp the engines/tracks.

My engine was already researched because of the time I spent on E75.

So i only had to free exp the tracks. Currently saving up the exp on e50 for top gun upgrade. Gonna take awhile. xD

You can live with the stock turret.

I did that, and regretted wasting the EXP on it... the 88 L/100 i found wasnt that much better of a gun over the 88mm L/71... Better to just use the L/71 and use gold rounds when you get in trouble...

The 105 is awesome and worth it though...

STOCK stock, pretty bad. Possibly the worst, after the stock Patton.

However, if you have that engine already unlocked via the E-75....it's bearable. The 8.8cm L/100 actually helps speed things up for the superior 105mm, so I would recommend taking the slight detour to get it first, if have the engine already.

It is awful. You need 200,000 xp to make it good.

You NEED the engine first- 50k xp. Tracks second 24k xp. Either turret or 88l/100, turret 24k gun 44k. Get turret next if you went gun.  Last, the 10.5 for 59k xp.

Agreed, getting the last engine is the most important.  Getting the 88 L100 will make it slightly better so hopefully you can free XP to it (I didn't and it suuucked), but in T10 matches that needle gun feels like trying to stab an elephant to death with a hat pin.

Try using free XP to research the 8.8cm L/100 first. That 25 pen and extra ROF and accuracy will help a good deal.
