I finally got enough free xp to convert and I bought mine this morning!!!

 

I saw the posts about the AT15 grind and I said nope.

 

I caved into the obvious WG money making convert xp for gold. I'd much rather play tanks I like and then spend a few bucks to bypass the pain.

85k xp remaining to unlock the FV.  Researched the Conway prior to buying Tortoise, so I started right away with the 120mm. 

 

Not going to sell AT-15 or Tortoises until On-Track is over.

The 120mm makes it.  The 20 pdr is serviceable at tier VIII but you have to expose yourself too much for it to be of much use a tier IX.  The reload on the 120mm was under 6 secs so permatracking vehicles is possible whilst delivering 400 dmg bombs each time.

100 battles  on at-15 with 57% wr. Need 8000 xp to unlock tortoise. What's the best path at this point?

 

 

What kind of free XP do you have available?  If you have enough to get the 120mm on the tortoise, just play the last 8k (couple hours max) and free XP the 120mm.  It's god awful without it.  You are just a toughish piece of meat with the 20 pdr at tier IX.  At least with the 120mm a decent damage game will still get you 1200 to 1500 XP on a loss.

Got less than 50k left to go. Got one three hour 200% booster left so hoping that'll get me there or at least awfully close!

Anyone knows when will be the last day to research and buy the Deathstar in the tech tree, when the "On track event" ends 8 of Dec. or later?

Yes, be prepared to bounce an AP off the LFP of a T-44 and then pen the turret face of an IS4 on a snap shot...the Death Star RNG is so effing rando’. 

 

Edit: it’s not all dog poop, popping a HESH into the turret side of a T10 and sending him to the garage..the lulz.

If nothing else, wait to sell it until after the ontrack ends. I’ll keep mine to see how it is after the buff.

Been running straight HESH in my Deathstar and I'm in love. I'm not a very good player but I've had 2 games over 5k in it
