Started with 7,000 EXP on the AC 46 last night, now I'm on the AC 48 with all modules (except those useless tracks) unlocked. 180,000 EXP ground out in 14 hours, not bad progress. By Tuesday I should be on the Foch at this rate, assuming the patch is next weekend I should be able to pull this off.

My only problem will be the credit grind as I'm broke, but I might have a few vehicles to sell.

 

Does anyone know when the next patch will supposedly go live? I've tried searching, but no dates are listed yet. I might be going too fast if the patch is on the 24th or some time late this month.

Use the credit boosters WG gave you.

I am, but when my best credit grinder is the Jagdtiger 8.8, it's not helping much.

Maybe they don't know yet, i'd guess the end of month but WG secret for now.

I believe in one of their announcements (or videos) they talked about 9.20 going to test which usually indicates 4-6 weeks before launch (their words).  This was at the beginning of August if I remember correctly.  That would mean end of August-mid September

I think I heard the test server 2 or 3 iteration  will be next week so you have a little bit of time

Yeah, and when WG usually announces a release date, it's about a week in advance.

If you have a lot of them to spare, use a credit booster while also using an xp booster. That way you can offset a lot of the credit loss. Not as good as using a premium, but better than nothing.

they are currently in the 2nd round of testing on the common test server atm ..... and with the new Grand battle map coming it was said  there may (?) be a 3rd round of testing on it   the 2nd round started aug 10  so hope this helps slightly

I don't have many, so I'll have to dedicate them to running specifically on premium tanks.

I'm 25k from Foch, so I should be able to get to t9 with a few credit and xp boosters left. I hope autoloader Foch is less painful than slow rolling explosion magnet AMX 48.

My guess that it will be live in maybe two weeks but if it were to pop up sooner we will all know so you have the time. Really annoyed that there was no high tier discounts this weekend and had to buy the foch 155 at full price.

There are credit boosters? I haven't seen any... just exp boosters.

 

 

I mean IM not in dire need of credits but with my premium account, the Su-122-44 and the lowe with credit booters... that could be good.

I have been averaging about 25k experience a day. I started on the Tier 6 and am now on the Foch with another 200k to finish the grind. I am going to sell some tier 9 tanks to get the Foch155 because I have run out of credits - buying tier 7, 8 and 9 tanks all in the space of a few weeks makes you pretty broke. My major issue is that my wife is now annoyed at me doing too much gaming as I am also trying to grind PUBG crates too.

In April we observed many players experiencing connection issues with the contact list resulting in players unable to chat, blacklist or platoon. We have been working hard to fix the issue and last week we deployed a temporary fix that solved the problem for the majority of players. We are currently working on a full fix that should be ready for deployment in the future. In the meantime we are crediting all players this Thursday with the following Thank You package for sticking with us during these problems and for all the help you provided in diagnosing the issue:
•         3 Days of Premium Time
•         3x 2hr +50% Credit Boosters
•         3x 3hr +200% XP Boosters
Thank you for your patience and for all of your help. We will update each Thursday on the status of the final resolution. Please keep sending us feedback and post to this forum thread if you are continuing to have issues:
