7. Re: World of Tanks Security Apr 22, 2013, 18:27 Asmo
It's very grindy. Even with a prem account, some tanks are just hell on earth (eg. the ISU152 ruski tank destroyer, the grind to the BL10 uber cannon of doom is one of the most depressing in the game).

If you want to pay to win, you can piss gold up the wall to buy the high performing ammo. And still suck. I've killed plenty of wallet warriors. You have to play to the strengths of the tank. Some tanks are snipers, some are flankers, some can take a ludicrous amount of damage and some have weak spots a mile wide. New players just tend to aim centre of mass (or worse, directly at the gun mount where the mantlet has the absolute thickest armour on the tank).

It also matters how far you can see, and what you can spot. Certain tanks are harder to see than others, and you can use this to your advantage.

If you only play occasionally and have difficulty getting credits together, or leveling up crews, buy a premium tank rather than premium time. Premium tanks have three major benefits.

-They are already elited, which means all XP earned on them is "extra" XP. You can either route this to the crew or in to free XP.

-You do NOT need to retrain a crew of a similar tank type (and nation) to use them on your prem tank. So if you have a premium heavy tank, you can transfer the crew from another heavy tank in to it and they will perform as if they were trained. Crew shuffling takes some time, but it means you can play an IS3 (ruski heavy) and have a premium IS6, for example, and use one IS3 crew to play in both tanks. Grind credits and XP in the 6, move to the 3 when you really want to maul people. Light tanks are generally a poor prem investment as they never really earn much in the way of credits and you'll only have limited ability to xfer crews to it.

-Prem tanks are a one off cost. Yes, they are expensive (~20-55 USD typically), but you can then play them anytime you want (and you can also choose to buy a day of premium + a premium tank = credits galore)

It should be noted that premium tanks are not typically WTFOP compared to standard tanks. Generally a standard tank starts off weak and ends strong. Prems sit in the middle and are usually quirky, ie. have weak spots or a weak gun compared to other similar tier vehicles.
