I am working on the M48 grind since it is on sale, got the M46 all maxed but XP only at 12K. Got 25K free xp floating around too.

I have a premium account active. Am I better off just hitting that M46 over and over to make that 208K I need or would it be faster to run some premiums  for free XP? I know free xp costs gold, putting aside that cost issue- which is faster? I have a Super P and a Ripper Patton to run the same crew in so I won't be cheating the crew of crew XP.

All that and the fact that the premiums make decent credits every game while a good game in the M46 is probably 6-7K to the good,  and normally a loss of credits.

My advice is to play the M46.  Save your gold and free exp for upgrading tanks (in other lines, of course).  You should avoid playing stock tanks as much as possible.

If you are willing to spend the gold in it the best way for you to get the experience would be to run all your premium tanks and all your elite tanks this weekend during the x5 experience event.  Then you can just convert to free exp for gold.  Make sure you are running an exp booster and a free exp booster and you will get the exp fastest.  In a good battle with a booster you are looking at 7500+ exp per battle.

 

You should prioritize premiums for wins because they get an additional x1.5 exp bonus.  Remember next weekend the free exp sale will allow you to get 35 exp per gold instead of the normal 25 per gold.


 

If you don't want to convert to free exp with gold you are better off just grinding your M46 with boosters loaded.

If you have time and are not hating the grind - grind the XP from the tank.


 

If you hate the grind and don't mind spending $, do the free XP.


 

I DO recommend using Free XP to unlock modules.

I also recommend grinding in a platoon for the extra XP pre battle and running boosters, that's what we do in our clan - it helps.

WANG ON THE LOOSE pretty much nailed it (lol).  Anyway dont forget also about NOV 23, X2 EXPERIENCE for every battle victory or defeat.  Want to increase your chance of winning make sure to platoon with some good players.  Just being able to communicate effectively with a few players dramatically increases your chances of wins.

What has been said above - but be aware that with the current on-track mission, the crew should get trained a lot faster with all the x2 bonuses if it stays in the M46

Save your free xp for tier 9 stock grinds.  Using it all just to save 2 million credits for an on track event is a waste.

 

Just play the tier 9.  If you make it in time, great.  If not, no big deal because you're only going to save 2 million credits which can be ground out in a few days anyway.  Killing yourself just to complete an on track, or any even for that matter, is never worth it in this game.  I never bust my [edited]to finish an on track because the credit savings aren't that big of a deal for me.

But you are cheating the crew of crew XP. 

Currently your crew gets x2 XP for being in an On Track tank (tier 8-10). 
If you put them in a premium tank you will get less crew XP.

Definitely put em in for the X2.

If you have "accelerate crew xp" selected... I don't know the math there, but the Tank XP goes to the crew.

Why the rush to grind a tank?

 

Not to mention, and sorry, but you are really bad in your M46. Maybe play it longer and actually learn the tank, instead of rushing to tier 10 and still sucking.

 

This is not a race to tier 10...

No need to be mean about it.  This new player came to the forum for advice and telling that he is really bad is discouraging.  It's better that he comes here and learns than gets alienated and plays in a vacuum.

New, just under 10k battles since 2015.. That is not a new player.

 

I was not being rude. I was stating basic truths without ribbons and frilly stuff around it.

 

Sorry if that hurts some peoples precious and delicate feelings.

Very rude, little at all to do with basic truths, and totally unnecessary.

True enough. But if a new player scans this forum and sees that is how people are treated, they may not want to ask their question here.

​I started on Blitz in 2015. PC was mid 2016, but yes, this game has the most toxic population of any MMO out there.  No matter what you ask some guy will show up and try to take a dump on you. Doesn't matter, I don't need anybody's permission to play a tier ten, especially a guy with all of 2% more victories.

check your average xp stats in your patton compared to your premiums, and decide if the difference is large enough to make it worth spending the gold.
