Right now, there isn't a whole lot to do with a tank once you've elited it out besides maybe grinding potential free XP or training the crew in that tank a bit faster.  Why not look at the idea of implementing an elite tank rank up system that allows you to boost the amount of credits and/or experience points your elite tank can earn in battle?

 

What I'm thinking of here is a closed system that would function as a third option for players to pick from on what to do with the XP they earn on an elite status tank.  Players would be able to put XP they earn on their elite tank towards increasing its Elite Rank, allowing them to increase the amount of credits, and XP that tank will earn in battle, eventually giving them the ability to match, andf possibly even surpass the credit and XP earnings of premium tanks in game.

 

Players would have to essentially, re-earn the XP needed to unlock the tank in the first place to achieve the first rank, it would work sort of like this:

 

US T6 Hellcat

Unlock Cost : 25,500 XP (tank must reach elite status before elite ranks can be leveled)

Rank 1 Cost: 25,500 XP (XP and credit earning boosted to x1.1)

Rank 2 Cost: 51,000 XP (XP and credit earning boosted to x1.2)

Rank 3 Cost: 76,000 XP (XP and credit earning boosted to x1.3)

Rank 4 Cost: 105,000 XP (XP and credit earning boosted to x1.4)

Rank 5 Cost: 155,000 XP (XP and credit earning boosted to x1.5)

 

Keep in mind this is just an example

 

Players would not be able to use converted free XP to pad their way through the elite rankings, they would have to buckle down, and play the tank if they want to rank it up, preventing any potential P2W abuse of the system.

And the option to put earned XP towards Elite rank could be as simple as a another checkbox along side the accelerated crew training box.

 

UPDATE: People seem heavily focused on the fact that WG would lose money because players would stop paying for premium account time.  I dunno about you, but I'm not gonna stop paying for premium time even if this idea does get implemented, cuz it still provides an advantage to the amount of XP abd credits you earn REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOU'RE DRIVING!!

As much as I would love having my tier 10s make more credits than the average t8 prem, and having my tier 8 prems make upwards of 200k credits per battle... no. Just no.

I would rather have xp that I could convert than a little bit more xp going to my crewmembers, especially with the ability now to put free xp towards crew skills. It gives me more control over what is going where. Plus, converting free xp has no drawbacks for me, since I can get large amounts of gold for free if I just participate in skirmishes and clan activities.

Be awesome, actually. No more premium account needed to solo pub tier 10? Good luck with interfering with WG's incoming stream ;)

countering this starts to complicate things.

 

to avoid screwing with WG's income stream maybe this could be something you can't do until you've either fought certain number of battles, or perhaps something you have to grind an entire line of tanks to elite status from tier 1 to tier 10, or the highest tier the line goes to before you can start ranking them up?

 

Case and point if i want to elite rank the hellcat, or the easy 8 let's say, I'd have to grind the whole line that tank sits in to elite status first.  This would limit early game access to the option, and still leave buying premium to grind credits as a viable option.

Because people who play tier 10 tanks, have done that in those lines already. I almost have every line, other than arty, fully researched.  Other than zooming around in my cromwell B or comet, and crew training in the O-I, I'm pretty much only playing tier 10s. It's pretty damn hard for someone with my skill level to consistently make credits, for more tier 10s, without a premium account. Making my e5, stb-1, leo1 and obj 140 make premium tanks would mean I could drop my premium status and never have to spend a dime again. I'm all for that, but WG won't be ;)

Ok, then what if the bonuses don't exceed the bonuses of premium vehicles?  Prem tanks i think earn a x1.5 bonus on credits and XP, so let's drop the potential bonuses to +.1 per elite rank.  This way the potential bonuses will only ever be able to match the advantages of a prem tank and/or prem account time at their maximum level of rank.

Still gives people a way to avoid paying for premium. Good luck convincing a company that's in business to make money that they should make less.
