No word on when it's coming out yet.  If it helps, it's still in Common Test and not in Public Test.

 

 I am hoping that the scale of the release means that they are testing for a longer time than normal. This will give me a bit more time.

200k to go.  70k of free I can use.  Do really you think it's worth the effort?  Thought the penn and gun handling on the test server is a bit questionable.

Worth it for a tank collector. The foch 155 will be a rare tank. Plus it is getting 2 tier 10s for the price of one.

You need to do an average of about 12k day in XP for about 30 days. Yes, I think you could do that and 2 hours a day with Premium account and boosters should be no problem. You will also have a good chunk of Free XP after this grind that will help the cause.

 

Good luck!

That's a valid point.  20k a day shouldn't be too bad.  Way short on credits :X Maybe high tiers will be on sale during the anniversary.  I presume the public test will be fairly close to the final iteration of the Foch?  Likely be the last rebalance it gets, at least for quite some time.

Last night I got way more than that. I think I clocked up 40k.  If I have 30 days this will be a breeze.  Though my next hurdle will be the credits as buying the Foch is going to wipe my reserves. So I will need to save up 6.1 million too. Though I can always resort to selling tanks if it comes down to that.

Time is an issue for me (job, kids, wife). I can increase my time to 3 hours a day but it involves staying up till 1am. I might have to do that for a while. 

 

Any TV time? If so there is something to cut back on. TV these days is dreadful.

Very little. Basically I am down to watching GoT and a few shows to keep the wife company. I spend more time watching twitch than TV now  days.

For tank collectors like myself and this being the one time to get it absolutely even though even after the buffs it won't be enough. Normally tier 10 reward tanks are valued at 22500 gold which comes to around $92 when converted to US dollars. Certainly saves me the trouble of suffering for a couple of months with tank rewards to get the yet to be released tier 8 that might not even make it to the tech tree. Best 145k free xp I've spent up to this point and the vacation time from playing is great.

Stating the obvious, but free xp boosters will also be handy

Run a premium tank and credit boosters along with the grind for when your TD is locked in battle. Over 30 days this should give you a big chunk of change.

The Foch 155 was my 4th tier X tank. I thought it looked cool so I did the grind only to find a stinky turd sitting in a tier X spot.

The 155's armor is pitiful to say the least and the reload is BRUTAL!!! Other then that it was a great TD!

With this new patch my ugly grind a long time ago will finally pay off! :playing:

Your best bet is to abuse the premium compensation weekends while using the 3 hour xp Boosters they give you. Those combined you can easily clear around 40k to 60k with every booster depending on how good you are with the tanks.

160k left in the 48. It's going to be close. Already bought the credit booster sale, might get the xp ones as well.  Seems like they could do better for a sale on xp boosters, this one is kind of weak.

I have never felt the need to use the boosters before so have gathered up 100s of them over time. They are definitely paying off now. I knocked off 40k experience last night. Only 50k to go to get the tier 9 Foch now.

Buy Pudel.
Activate 200% booster.
Utilize x5 exp + 200% exp booster.
Make about 55k-75k exp an hour.
Spend money to convert free exp.
Get Foch 155.

 

I did 190k exp in 3 hours playing pudel and some other prems.

Weeeeeeeee!

I had apparently used free xp to get myself to the tier 7, though it is still fully stock. I would guess that was about 2 years ago and I havent touched the line since. Juggling between school and golf practice, I would still have plenty of time on my hands to get it, pop off some reserves, buy some premium account, use some free xp, and I could easily get it within a week if I threw in around 4-5k gold for free xp conversion to just get tanks out of the stock range. The problem is that what is the point in wasting so many hours just to get a tank that is a nerfed version of what is already in the game. Will it be a good crew trainer? Well, yes. But that is all it will ever be. I dont really see a reason for WG to be adding a whole new tank when all they did was slap a different gun on it and "toughen up the armor". If people had already been playing that line because they genuinely enjoy french tds, then great. But from someone who actually wants to have fun playing the game, the grind just takes it too far.

Actually less than 30 days as the patch will be released near the end of this month.
