This is the key question.

 

Should people start accumulating xp on the 8's, or is that just a waste?

I've been wondering that too.

 

I'm guessing WG will clarify for certain when they make an official announcement on a common test server.

Ima go ahead and stop accelerating crew training just in case :hiding:

 

 

 

If not xp from tier 8 lights, what would be the route to get said T9-10 lights?

no, you will use the XP on that tank to research the next and it becomes elite

Yeah, I want to know how they're going to compensate people for the XP they've gotten.

 

I got my T-54 and T54E1 through grinding the T-54 ltwt. and T49 respectively. Great tanks, both of them, but I don't want to spend a long time grinding through them again.


Hopefully we'll get compensated for the XP we've earned on them already.

The entire tank is being moved up a tier, it stands to reason that the XP will go with it as well...

I guess it would depend on whether they move the current tier 8 lights to tier 10 and fill in lesser tier lights like they did with arty.

The point is that we are discussing the question of OP, not of your irrelevant comment.

generally no. the exp stays at the slot it was earned. if a tank moves up, the exp goes to the new tank taking its spot.

To have Light Mediums...Lightiums?

 

 

EDIT: Lightium sounds like some bogus element from a scifi series lol.

and view range because lights should be out spotted by T10 meds consistently. Hell my Object 263 out spots light tanks with nothing but optics

I'm in a similar position, but I'm only halfway to the T-54.  When the T-54 Ltwt gets moved up a tier, then I hope the T-54 stays researchable at a lower xp cost.  But now I have to decide, do I get the T-54 now, or save xp to get the new light tank first, and then go back and work to the T-54?

 

Or will the T-54 become inaccessible from this line altogether? (I hope not).

Well, that is ridiculous.  I am halfway to my T-54 and my BatChats.   I don't want to be stuck with some tier 8 tank loaded with xp that I have no use for, when I could be using it to buy these mediums.

 

They better keep my xp with my tank, and not just with the tier.

The devil is in the details.   I think sometimes the xp moved with the tank.......but, I just don't remember the details of every tech tree change at this point.

 

Either way,  tradition is not really the key, this is WG after all, they could simply decide one way or another.

 

fyi, for those who care, you also want to save xp on the

tiger P

4502b

possibly save some xp on mid tier french heavies.  (I forget now)

Of course your xp will stay with that light, but we're talking about WG which loves to promote burning of free xp. So would your current light lead directly to the new tier 9 and 10 light? That is the question and I seriously doubt it. Would not at all be surprised if there are several other new lights leading leading to the new high tier lights. Essentially a new line in part.

You do realize its prolly going to take at least a year before they implement it.  That is even they actually do it at all.  I wouldn't worry about right now.

I forsee that if the tier 8s get bumped up to tier 9 then the XP will stay with the tier 8 and you'll have your tier 9 light with no XP on it, that's what they did on Warships just recently when hey moved ships around.

One of the WG people said it would happen in the first half of next year.   Of course, you know what happens to deadlines.....

Another question, related to the MM change

Many other low tier lights have special matchmaking.   Are the stats of those tanks going to be changed with the new mm, eg the luchs, elc etc?
