 I did the absolute minimum to get the three weekly Free XP bonuses from the Halloween event, then I bought the camo on the last day. I also converted all the XP on the MT-25, most of it during the conversion XP sale. All in all got about 90k free XP, I think.

 I finished the grind on the tier V Italian tank, man that thing is a little beastie. I'm thinking of starting another crew just for it. When I bought the tier VI Italian I used my free XP to get all the top modules to run first battle.

 I also finished the grind on the tier V Polish tank, definitely not as much of a beastie as the Italian but by no means a poor performer. I then used all my remaining free XP to skip the tier VI and go straight to the tier VII heavy. Now, of course I'm grinding the Tier VII heavy stock, but I kept hearing that the Tier VI is soooo bad.

you should never use free xp to unlock tanks. Modules only, so you never play those tanks stock.

Unless the tank is really, really bad. 

 

edit: I think the stock tier 7 Pole > maxed out tier 6.  Really.

I put the tracks on my T95 , that way I could put on the modules before I played it . Then shut the game off for awhile till they decide what there going to fix or not fix . So essentially the game is done till after the first of the year or they bring back Frontlines .

I used my Free XP to advance my Bulldog to the T49 with the Derp. And the rest on upgrading guns on my Udes and Pantera.  After purchasing 3 tanks with Gold (discounted) and moving up crews, etc. - I went from 40K gold down to 60 total (for removing equipment).  Will wait for the holidays before I restock - assuming they continue with the tree decorating things.

I played each day to get the daily bonus and the 3 weekly credit bonuses. I've unlocked up to level 10.

 

The free XP bonuses went to unlocking modules on the tanks I am currently grinding.

Buying equipment tracks might have been a better use of the free xp than to unlock with xp the tracks. That's what I've been doing for years now on a dozen or two lines, especially top tier. Usually buying the suitable equipment tracks in advance on sale and selling when not longer needed for another line.

As always I only spend free XP to upgrade tanks I unlock by grinding, I never play stock tanks and at the very least make sure I get the top gun

Used some to unlock and purchase the Obj430 russian tier 9 medium. Dont need to research the turret or gun on that one. That is one fun tank to run.

 

Also used some to research equipment on a few tanks. Still have some left to use but no hurry.

Same.  I'll very occasionally start lower than the tier 9 if they're not awful (did this with the new Polish heavies), but otherwise, start from a fully upgraded tier 9.  Why suffer through the rest of the Japanese heavies if you can just have a Type 4 with the silly HE cannon?

What if you found a lower tier "keeper"?  I don't know how Vilin, Mahou, etc. work, so maybe the high end tiers don't afford time/avenues for lower tier play.  I personally love a lot of the lower tier tanks - tier 6 has a ton of gems in them.  So, if you just free XPed your way through the line, who would ever know what was fun?

I hoard it and only use it on the rare occasions when a tank just sucks so bad I feel the need to. I think I'm sitting on around 330k and I keep all my elite tanks set to accelerate crew training.
