I started WOT in 2011. May of 2011 I think.  Anyway I am sad to say a crapppy player, but I like the game. I have played around 21000 games with a 50% WR. 3000 of those games in loltraktor.

 

Anyway I decided I would not get any tier10 tanks until I reach 50% minimum in all the other tanks I have played.

 

Is there anybody else who has played the game regularly for more than a year and decided not to progress past a certain tier? 

I have only played two tier 9s. Only small number of games on each but 50% on both.

 

Anyway i am just curious.  Oh I currently play on EU server as WG will not transfer my account.

I haven't gone past tier 9 , only have 1. i found the game was most enjoyable up through tier 8. Now with the 3/5/7 mm that has changed, tier 8 can be a pain.

Haven't gone past Tier 7 and no plans to either.  I still have a tier 8 free tank with some battles left on it though.

There's no rush to Tier X, but it does seem like it's a bit of a weird requirement to get 50% on every tank you own before progressing.  I might go back to get 50%+ on every tank, but I won't hold myself back because of it.  

 

I was in a similar boat though.  Created account in 2013, and didn't have any Tier X's until about a year ago.  Now I have 26 of them.

I haven't played anything above Tier VI except for Frontline mode.  I think I only have one Tier VII unlocked, maybe two.  I might eventually play Tier VII now and then but I'll never play enough Random mode games in Tier VII to unlock any Tier VIII.

I think the pressure to play tier tens are connected to clan membership and Clan Wars.

 

I have 25 tier 10's but I definitely would not have near that many if I wasn't a member of a Clan Wars clan. There is always pressure to get that current OP/UBER tier ten for the good of your team.

 

There is nothing written in stone saying you have to have a tier 10.

I don't have any tier 10 tanks, but I play in tier 10 all the time. Thanks WG.

No tier 10 only tier 8’s here have a few tier 10’s I. World of warships due to it being a faster grind.

OP, I too have been around since 2011 and I want to say likely for the first year and maybe 2012 as well, I didn't have a tier 10.  I think the first year was me playing WoT occasionally and when I did, I was just in the low tiers trying to win or at least take an opposing player or two for every battle I played.  I didn't make any real strong progress up any tech tree until I bought premium time and even then I was doing my usual "play at least 50 battles" for every tank I played.

 

Not sure I picked up a tier 10 until I either joined a clan or right before I joined.  And then it was because I wanted to put myself in a Clan Wars eligible position.  After I was in a clan and participated in Clan Wars, I started pursuing more 10s to be more versatile for my clan.

 

It may have been the tech tree change that made the T30 a TD and the T34 a premium tank that started things for me.  Having advanced knowledge via these forums of that change happening made me push so I could take advantage and get what at that time was my first higher tier premium, aka the T34, which was worth the butt kicking I took when I played what at the time was the really bad T30 Heavy.

I sold my tier 10's awhile ago, to me they weren't worth playing. Actually, I recently sold all my tech tree tanks since I no longer played them and don't grind anymore. I'm just keeping my premiums for when Frontline comes back, and to make credits for consumables.

It's always a safe bet to stay away from talk on religion and politics,  and not just on forums but everywhere. You should know this, are you still a kid?

 

I have tier 10's and as mentioned above you don't need them and can have fun playing any tier.

I didn't get a tier 10 for a long time, 10 or 20k battles I don't remember exactly. Play what you think is fun, if you don't want t10's don't play them. Now I have 43 tier 10's and play mostly t10 in random battles.

Why didn't you just set up an EU alt account?  Why bother migrating to NA?

And 3k battles in a Lol-traktor?  Get help, man.  Just say no.

I've got 30 Tier X's.  Most are the meta clan wars tanks, or have been at some point, others just for LULs.

 

Playing tier X organized battles is the 'end-game content' I've sought. 

 

Coordinating 15 random people from all walks of life and all over the globe is intrinsically rewarding when your clan is achieving their goals.  The camaraderie and tactics of org battles makes tier X the BEST tier to play IMHO.

I never really bothered to get tier 10 tanks. What’s the point, they are just credit sinks unless you are good enough to play ranked, which I am not. Got the IS-4 when rumors started circulating that it would be replaced. Still waiting for that. Until then, I’m stuck with what is essentially an ST-1 with some extra hit points that is moved up a tier for no actual reason.

im at 21k matches,no tier 10.i only have 1 tier 9 and thats only due to the Great Light Tank change.and i have 5 tier 8s and 9 tier 7s.i just really cant do at all well in high tier matches.i do think my first tier 10 will be M48 patton,but thats at least a year away,maybe more.play and progress at your own pace...pushing yourself too fast may make you burn out on the game.

Crazy timing for this thread, I started in 2014 and have never had a tier 10 but I think I'm about to get my first one in a couple days when the m48 patton goes on track. Kinda excited!

My biggest reason for waiting is 'cause I'm a free-to-play player (except a gifted FCM 50t a friend gave me) and any top tier tank is quite an investment. I've had a lot of tier 10s unlocked but I haven't pulled the trigger 'cause the meta keeps changing and the lines I've grinded down are no longer preferred choices. Also I primarily buy top tier tanks on discount; sometimes I keep waiting for them to cycle back to the on-track but it usually takes forever (if at all).

I've read reviews on the m48 and even though it isn't the very best med I hear it's still quite fun. Been waffling about it but I think I'm gonna finally pull the trigger. Time to pop that tier 10 cherry!

I had the E100 and LeopardI for a few battles but too much gold slinging for mw pkus those are probably the worst tier x out there. Ive unlocked several others but I am content to play my 9s and lower tanks. I may try the Patton since it is on track and I have the tier 9 m46 Patton without the top gun.
