I was wondering what you guys thought about this. Current my tier 10s are as follows:

  • American T57 Heavy AutoLoader
  • Russian Obj 140 medium
  • French Bat Chat
  • Russian IS-7
  • Russian T-62A (researched but not in garage)
  • Russian Object 261 (researched but not in the garage)

 

I also have a Russian T54 Light weight (the tier 9 russian light) and the T-10 (russian tier 9 heavy). The light tank is 160k from tier 10 research and the T-10 is about 120k xp away from research. Considering that Ranked battles are coming up I am wondering if I should use my glorious 130k free xp to finish out either of these tanks. I don't really see the point for the heavy tank because I have 2 other ones that are great tanks in my opinion. However, the light tank kind of has me wondering, I feel like heavies would be hard to compete with since there are a lot of reward vehicles out there that are absolutely OP as [edited]. This makes me hesitant to run my heavies. However, I do like light tanks, and that T100 light tank has got a delicious view range. But I am hard pressed to spend my stock pile of free xp. Thoughts?

 

EDIT: sorry i forgot to mention this, I am considering this because of the upcoming Ranked battles.

Just grind if you've already got the tier 9, seeing as how tier 9 is the single best tier in the game.

Just get the 277 and use it to bully mediums. 

 

Passive scouting is basically dead and any LT100 is just going to get utterly destroyed by the hordes of EBRs that will be running around. Either get an EBR and roll a D20 for RNG or just get the 277 and try to contribute to the team.

No, I saw that. T57, BatChat and Obj140 are adequate, no need to rush a T-100.

is the 277 that much better than the IS-7 to warrant 130k free xp.

No, you should only use free xp on stock modules, not to skip tanks.

And 140 is more than sufficient for Ranked, any LT other than EBR will have a hard time doing well.

I think the light tanks unless you really are careful to play their rolls for bonus XP will struggle in Ranked Battles.

 

Focus fire at tier 10 is brutal.

Jake is right, tier ten tracked lights have no reason to exist anymore, not even the Russian one.

If you have a premium account you can grind out 120K XP in 4 days fairly easy with boosters and your daily 3X missions. Throw in the 401 missions which are super easy for lights and it's cake.

I believe they play 2 different styles. The IS-7 is beefy and great at being hull down, but it can also reliably side-scrape, reverse side-scrape, and bounces reliably from the front. The 277 is a lot faster with less armor so its more of a hevium style. It's alright hull down but the frontal hull is weak and the sides can be over-matched by larger guns while side-scraping. 

 

I would suggest not wasting free xp on it, only use free xp for stock tanks to get the upgraded modules. The T-10 is actually a pretty fun tank and with premium account/reserves it shouldnt take too long to grind it. 

 

But yeah, I do believe the 277 is better than the IS-7, especially in competitive play.

That is completely incorrect. They are still very much viable tanks in random battles that serve a purpose, but not in ranked.
