Does it stay on the IS8 and need to be converted?

That's what I'm worrying about (I'm at 93k xp on my IS4) but I think we'll make it. The next patch is the American line change and that is due next month... then another month until the Russian line change. We got a good month and a half until we need to scrap up the research for the IS7.


What I'm worrying about now is if I have the IS7 researched and not buy it (currently at 300k credits) before the Russian line change, does the IS7 stay researched or what happens to it?

The experience should transfer over to the IS8 and the IS7 should stay researched idk but this seems to be the most logical reasoning. Remember think positive thoughts but plan for the for worst possible outcome.

Here is your answer.

Quote

• IS-4 will be substituted for Object 252.
Players who have an IS-4 in their garage at the time of the revision will get an IS-4 in its new status with old crew, plus they will also get an Object 252 with 100% crew with an extra garage slot. Undistributed experience will remain on Object 252, however can be transferred to a new IS-4 on demand.
No additional refunds are planned.

Draft Procedure of module substitution for IS-4:
If a player had IS-4’s engine researched, the same engine will be researched for both the new IS-4 and Object 252 (or the analogue of this engine if changed).
Radios, turrets, and suspensions will be treated in the same way. IS-4 and Object 252 will have the same modules installed as those previously mounted on old IS-4 or their analogues if changed. Guns, if changed, are likely to be treated in the same way.

Given that we are still waiting for an OFFICIAL break down of the Soviet Tree . This includes the question of is the Object going or staying etc .
I read the old post from Overlord as being you get the IS-4 with it's current equipment and you will have to grind up even MORE exp to equip the new modules .. . Now I have excess exp on the IS-4 . I damm well better be able to use that for any new modules when it becomes a tier 10 .

Tier 10s generally don't have anything to research, and if anything, it's only been one gun so far, so I don't think you need to worry about saving up 100,000xp or anything like that.

I doubt the IS-4 will have a full set of researchable modules (despite what they're saying). Perhaps just a gun like the E-100. The fact that undistributed experience will be transferred to the new IS-8 is one clue. The other is that a full set of researchable modules on the IS-4 would be a huge disincentive to grind down that line and favour the IS-7 line.

If you don't make the deadline and you have 150xp or whatever on the IS4 then you will just have lots of xp to convert on your now tier 10 IS-4.

Don't miss the deadline!

It won't be till mid or late march till is-4 will be tier 10.  All those farming probably have plenty of time.

Lol... don't forget that the XP goes to the Object 252 (Not on the IS4) when the update hits and you can request the XP to be moved to IS4 (if you really want to) after the update. That's what I got from Mowie's quote of overlord.
