I would say so most definitely.  Even if you don't like E 100 you may love E 75.

It's worth doing not only for the end game - the E100 ( I just bought it cause I was waiting for it to go on sale), but for the "goodies" as you progress i.e . gun laying drive, rammer, etc.

I dont know about all the way although but it just depends on your games. Its worth a try. The line is Cheaper and you get Crew and EXP bonuses along the way of doing it. Plus you have Reserves you can get every day so might as well go at it and try it.

But would I even get to tier 10? Playing 5-7 hours only 3 or 4 days a week I am not so good with the math

Kerykia, I've noticed my clan mates having to have a real dedication to completing these on-tracks, to the point where it sounds like a real grind, almost like work rather than fun. I don't want to refrain from playing the tanks that I really enjoy the most. I really like the Tiger and unlocked the Tiger II a while back and will use this on-track to buy it at a discount tonight. I figure I'll just put a little more focus on the German heavies for the next couple of weeks and unlock/buy the E75 and see what happens. Any freebies that come along with that plan are a bonus for me. If I don't even get to the E75, meh. But perhaps you're more dedicated than I. Good luck to you!

I have done every On-Track for the past 3 years. Completing the mission takes 250k xp. I complete the mission in about 10 days (25k a day) playing 2 hours each day.

Normally I will free xp to tier 5 and grind to buy the tier 8 in a mission (2 weeks) or I will grind the tier 8 and half the tier 9 in the mission (2 weeks) or I can grind the tier 9 in the mission (2weeks).

You are playing more than I do, but it looks like you may still be new to the game which may take you longer to get the xp.

I would say you could average 8-10k xp per hour and if you play like you say you do you could get the tier 10 in 14 days.

I think you will have a bigger problem getting the credits you need to buy the later tanks. I spend the last 4 days of the mission running my premium tanks in order to buy the tanks for the following On-Track.

This is my plan as well. Normally I'll use an on-track event to buy the tank I've researched in the line, then power through it and buy the next one too, while it's on discount. For the last one, I bought the ST-1 and power-grinded through it to get the IS-4 on discount as well. For this one I'll be buying the Tiger 2 tonight and prioritizing it over the next two weeks while I play to unlock and buy the E75 while it's on discount. From there I'll just slot the E75 into the rotation and play it for the funsies, then sell the Tiger 2 once the event ends (so I don't take as much of a hit when I sell it). Equipment and consumables from missions are just a bonus.

when you get a new tank on that line dont sell the old one, you may use it to get the daily doubles/triples/etc etc etc

 

try to get 23k XP a day, you will do it in 11 days, it gives you 2 or 3 days of vacation if you need to do other stuff

 

PS: use as many reserves as you can/have

 

good luck

Its always worth doing because you get free EXP and goodies along the way.  Your biggest problem will be credits as you will never earn enough to get the higher tier tanks without a premium tank.

If you don't like a tank from that line sell it when the on track is over, the discounts applies for selling tanks also.

YES!

 

I did the on-track with the IS-4, but from the KV-4 at the time. Just load up as much XP, Free XP and Credit Reserves as you can, and play non-stop in that tank, if possible. Since you play as much as you do, it is completely worth it.

 

My Free XP Reserves allowed me to get the ST-I with the top gun and turret already researched. I made (researched) the IS-4 from a fully researched ST in only a couple of days of straight play.

If you were already planning on going down the line, then sure. The On Tracks used to give tier 5-7 premium tanks for completing the Leads To The Armory mission. So the Armory tanks are not worth it anymore.

Do you really only have 72 battles? If so, you should stay away from tiers higher than 6 or so.

​Agreed Stay at tier 5 or 6 get your crew skills up get to learn the maps and the games mechanics more don`t make the same mistake I made rush up every heavy line have crap crews have no idea what sidescraping was or angling armor
