Finishing up the tier 6 now.  I liked tiers 4 and 5.  But 6 has no redeeming qualities.   It’s both slow and clumsy, has terrible gun arc and elevation.  And something like 30 garbage guns before you get something decent.  And with the current MM about 48% of your battles will be tier 8 so your armor is useless.

If they honestly wanted to improve the British lines they would remove half the module upgrades.

I think WG wants only "certain" lines to have 1-shot (or close to it) abilities, and I don't think I like Jag 100.

There are ulterior motives for WG doing this, like ppl HAVE to buy gold to XP the tanks.  More $ for them.

I free xped to the AT8 and I actually grinded through all the way to the tortoise . I will admit it is a very painful grind I am just hoping that once I have the top gun it does get a lil easier . I myself like many others I am sure found it odd how this line with all the AT having no turrets but then the deathstar has a turret so I guess the badger will fit in nicely . 

 

 

Tort with the top gun is very good. You can hold your own as long as you have hard cover and good position. Tort can finally use its DPM and making credits with the 120mm.

Alternate path through the heavies, Churchill Gun Carrier, then the ATs at tier 7.

Yea I just got the top gun finally and it does make a world of difference well also depending on if rng will be kind or not that is lol . But I figured since I have already gained 15k xp after getting the top gun an throw a couple additional 100% exp each hour I should have the deathstar researched in under 2 weeks that is just doing 20k xp a day . So wish me luck guys an anyone that is doing the painful grind good luck

Unlocked the at8 last nite with a 58%wr and 36 battles.The at2 is maddeningly slow.Always driving to the closest firefight to be able to get a few shots in. Armour is excellent at this level,but will be problematic at higher levels i feel. Rof is astounding.Had a e25 so startled by my rapid 4 shots into him that he drove off the bank in sand river and crashed to his death (made my night).Going to outfit the the at8 with land lease oil and take off govenor if possible. No camo either so to draw them in for teammates to shoot.The grind is real but tolerable so far.Saving my exp to bypass at15 as i heard that was the worst in the line.Thanks for the insight and advice, guys.

The scary thing about this badger is whether it will be what we have all seen so far. If they pull their patented trick, as in gold tanks we preview for week as rewards, then after a week they nerf them, then a lot of people will be disappointed at the whole grind. Cause right now the 183 just isn't worth it. think how many times you see 183s in battle lately.i have unlocked all the big tds just don't have money to buy them all. still I liked the lower tier brit tds. just need to group up with a couple people and use it as assault td. if you have someone to protect your flanks they can be a beast.

Bro, first thing first,  4M credit for 2 tier 10 tds, always worth it.

second, 183 is not about worth it or not. its the icon. its about a dream, a dream of 1 shot. (You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow. This opportunity comes once in a lifetime you better.....(Eminem Lose yourself)

Just a reminder to those of you waiting for the sale price of the Tortoise. Sell your AT15 before the sale starts, or you will get a reduced price when you sell it and it is on sale. SELL IT TONIGHT!

Just finished and done with it but grinding the crew for the Death Star in the AT15A piled on the losses like nothing that I've played in a long time.

 

Researched:
FV215b (183) researched. Undistributed experience spent: 235000. Free Experience spent: 0.

Had the AT8,   Free XP to the Tort.  Small guns suck on the Tort,  no pen and little damage.  Big gun,  avg 1500 xp per battle but WG usually gives you less credit on the on track for it.     Will it be worth it.    IDK   but a T10 Premium and another T10 might make it worth it. lol

Just remove the word "star" from your title and it tells you all you need to know. See you in hell.
