World of Tanks – Experience Required to Unlock All New Double Barreled Tanks

Remember, numbers are still a work in progress and might change (although considering past tests, they are unlikely)

The experience showed is only when directly skipping every single tank straight into the next tier, without researching unnecessary modules to save XP.

Listed numbers represent the tank to be researched = base XP cost for the research of the new vehicle / how much does the entire grind to go directly to the vehicle costs (e.g 236k XP needed on IS-2-II when researching IS-3-II)

IS-2-II = 51.300 ex. – This experience can be accumulated in advance on KV-3.
IS-3-II = 165.400 ex. (For the tank) /236.300 ex. (with the necessary modules)
ST-II = 217.000 ex. (for the tank) /544.100 ex. (with the necessary modules)

In total: 544.100 exp. We highly recommend (based on preliminary XP values) to save up 51.3k XP on the KV-3 to have IS-2-II researched on day 1, and at least 50k to skip horrendous stock grind on the IS-2-II (Twin 85mm guns at tier 8).

Wat. Only 50k xp for tier 8?

It will either change, or upgrade xp cost will be insane.

ZSU-57/2  - twin 57mm autocannons on a T-54 chasis. In real life it was an SPAA.  Here it could be a tier 8 wheelie killer.

That's 544.100 xp I can use on ...... something else, anything. 

 

Multi gun tanks could be fun if done right, like activating the 37mm on the Lee/Grant tanks or the howitzer on the Church I and making those tanks interesting

Or giving us the ultimate 72 kmh Wheelie Killer. Which this game seriously needs.

I agree, that can't be right. Every other Tier 8 in the tech trees is about 100K XP to unlock just the vehicle itself. The XP figures for the Tier 9 & 10 sound about right, but the IS-2-II number seems way off base.

Tier 8's are around the 60 - 70 k XP usually; IS-3 is 67,760, KV-4 is 53,000 so that XP will be spot on.

 

And is is just a reworked IS-2 so most of the reserach should be done.

So insane module cost it is.

Other than the double gun gimmick the tanks themselves are rather weak. Poor armor for tier and not particularly mobile. Looks like the 703 is going to be the best of the bunch. I suppose these would be fun in platoons given the combined alpha being able to send most full health tanks right back to the garage.

I hate the kv3 with a passion but grind another 55k or so I will. At least we have Christmas boosters still to make it easier.

So you're saying the 122k I stocked up on it might have been overkill?

Then we must be looking at different tech trees. Tier 7's are usually in the 50k-70k range. Besides a few odd exceptions (the KV-4 being one of hem) most Tier 8's are in the 80k-100k range. But hey, if the IS-2-II ends up being a low XP exception as well, then all the better.

Where are these in the tech tree? I have an ST-1 and would be willing to grind with it for something slightly better (faster, better hull armor, better gun). Going back to KV-3 or KV-4 would make me ill.

Good.  I have 300K free XP saved.  So at least tier 8 isn't going to be a problem.

Never fear, you are going to go back 2 tanks in the line...

 

I actually love the KV-3, it's a sidescraping demon. The KV-4 is barf, a mistake I made just for a Frontline Tank (I probably was that stupid one KV-4 at the start of your Frontline game every so often), but the KV-3 comes so naturally, as long as you hide your front and be patient on the 11 sec top reload (or 9 sec if you have rammer), you can easily top 2k+ damage. I was able to get the Stug Heavy Tank-15 with Honors by casually sidescraping under the Paris bridge, I honestly felt it was a poor performance but lol whatever. http://wotreplays.eu/site/5175012#teams
