Not the same guy.... 

 

Shots fired; no hit.

 

Perhaps next time, you might want to consider opening the link if you're going to find it?

I've been working on it for almost 2 weeks but that's only playing an hour after work each day from 12 hour shifts and a little on my days off and I went from tier 4 and I'm at the Foch now with 200k to go. That's using premium,boosters etc. I may just free xp the rest as it's driving me nuts.  Good luck it can be done in a fair amount of time. And I used my 3 skill Batchat25ap crew since I never played it anymore.

Fortunately for me, I had the Foch unlocked but never bought. Free xp'd the modules and instantly regretted it once it sunk in that I now needed to acquire 290k xp. I was already intent on using free xp since I was sitting on a whole lot of gold. Started Wed and done last night. Think I did a whole lot of harm than good, playing so recklessly...but I'm done! Thank you x5 weekend! 

 

Good of luck to you!

Here's one thing to consider.  How many games will you need to get there?  I just pulled my stats from the V39 through the Foch.  I have a total of 492 games in those 4 tiers to get to the Tier X.  I cant tell you how much, if any, free xp was used to get any of those grinds done so it may take more games.  I also doubt I was using any boosters at the time because I believe I had run the line before boosters, but cant confirm that either.

 

Another way to look at it would be this.  If its 700k xp to get there, if you average 2k xp per game (running xp and free xp boosters) then that's about 350 games.  If I were you, I would consider running a combination of xp, free xp, and credit boosters while running the grind.  I would also run a tier 8 prem in the off time so you aren't sitting and waiting for your tank to come out of game.  You wont run as many games (unless you win every battle) towards the grind in each session, but you will be moving your credits and free xp along as well.  Run grind, die, run prem, run grind.  Always run the grind if the tank is out of the previous game.  Always run a prem while the grind tank is stuck in battle.

 

350 games towards the grind is probably 60 hours or less worst case scenario.

Started three days ago since I researched the Foch. Using boosters and my premium time, I've gotten 145k experience so far by playing 3-5 hours a day.

 

I'm going to try pulling 10 hours today and maybe finish the job.

Interesting post. I cannot find information on a free prem tank though...what is this all about? I am at tier 8 so this may be of interest. Thanks.

Come 9.20, the Foch 155 will be taken out of the tech tree to be replaced with the AMX Foch B, when that happens, a "reward" version of the Foch 155 will be created and given to all the current owners alongside the upcoming Foch B, since the Foch 155 isn't grossly overpowered nor mechanically broken. Basically what they did with the IS-4, except the IS-4 is still a tree tank.

I really wouldn't want to miss out on yet another reward tank... 

Without putting any gold into free xp other than getting a tank out of stock status, how long would you estimate it would take if I had premium account, plenty of reserves, moderately good stats and plenty of time on my hands? I could go around 10 hours a day of straight grinding, though it would be boring. Is there any way I can get it by the end of the month? I currently have the tier 6, fully upgraded. 

 

I did the arithmetic once and I think (IIRC) you need something like 800,000 XP/Credits to grind all the way from the Free Tier I tank to the Foch 155.  That's a lot of battles no matter how you cut it.  I don't have any French tanks so I would have to start from scratch but when I saw that number I didn't even think about trying.  :amazed:

ARL v39 105mm APCR is super balanced.

(You get +10% damage of 330 per shot with that, on top of the penetration.  Literally no reason to fire anything else if you have the credits. :P )

You can unlock the tier 9 Foch with 380,450 xp from the ARL.  That is just researching guns to get you to the next tank.  From there you don't need to do research anything to unlock the 155 but it will mean stock engine.  Run all the 5x you can along with personal reserves this weekend and try to only play higher tiers.  You can earn 10k free xp a game on a good damage win.  I just bought mine this afternoon after grinding the last 290k free xp since Thursday.  Was  painless tbh.

Id like clairification is the FOCH155 to become a tank like the T28HTC for personal missions, or is this something else?

The Foch isn't actually bad with the stock engine, it has about the same mobility as the AC48. Unlocking the Foch 155 unlocks the Foch top engine for free, so it isn't a required upgrade in the grind.
