Cool stuff in this update, but I'm not seeing the earn op. It was supposed to begin today.

 

*Edit* Nevermind, I see it. It's just in a new format that was throwing me off. It would be nice to see what tanks we could earn, though, instead of mostly going into it blind. Or are the Blitzen, T-28E F-30, and ISU-130 the only options?

Oh Christmas illuminations decoration have come back to Blitzen MTLS !! :P

And I may have been compensated silver equivalent for the Blitzen I already have, I don't know how much silver it were though.

Is it better to sell the current Blitzen received last year?  I could use the slot more than the silver.

To be honest I am pretty pissed off about this update. I was playing T49 only to get to T54E1 and eventually to T57 Heavy Tank. I have on T49 over 135k xp so just about 50k left to grind. And now I have to start whole line from the beginning? wth? Where is exit for T54E1? Why there hadn't be any warning about those crazy changes? If I knew this is going to happen, I might have to use my free xp just to get to T54E1 and be able to continue. Those kind of surprises are really annoying. It is even more worst - I literally HATE playing LT. Is there anything I could do to restore my T54E1 progress?

Ya they have announced that they would implement Tier10LT on tech-tree early in next year, not within this year. They should have announced in advance because players have plans to grind XP to when. Sudden tech-tree line change would affect us badly. :angry:

In my case, I have 70,000 tank XP of Chinese Tier7LT and needed 78,000 XP to get Tier8LT before update 4.2, but now I need 91,700 XP. 21,700 XP has been added to required XP !!!

From what I can tell, it's a series of chained ops. Part 1 gets you the Blitzen, part 2 gets you some consumables, and so on and so forth. The overview says you can earn up to 3 tanks, and there are a T-28E F30 and an ISU-130 in the picture, so those are probably the prizes for the later stages.

Hi, sorry for the delay, I had to go to work in order to buy the new premiums :P.  Small update tonight and news have answered a big part of my basic question... :great:. I am now trying to figure out witch ones could be missing from the list like where is the T3 British Sexton I?

That premium should be in the British tech tree. Only rare premiums are on the Premium tech tree. :honoring:

Due to update 4.2, we could equip Vertical Stabilizer in many LT, and I've already equipped Gun Laying Drives in my LTs. Then should I change Gun Laying Drive to Vertical Stabilizer using precious 10 Gold in each procedure ?  What do you think ? :unsure:

 

​"precious 10 Gold"... LOL. When tier 8 premiums cost 6500-15,000 Gold then using 10 Gold to swap equipments is drop in the ocean.

Using gold to buy high price premium tanks and Using gold to change equipments or skilsl are entirely different procedure. I just want to use gold wisely, don't want to waist it with such meaningless procedure. Many drops makes shower.:)

This is a really cool update!  The new features, changes, and added tanks I find very exciting. The addition of the “naked” tanks and Premium TT...wow! It was well worth the wait and I can understand now why it took a little bit longer to roll out. Thank you RaiBot01 and MaxChaos for answering so many questions and keeping us informed. :)

I wouldn't mind light tanks if the maps had sufficient cover to enable passive spotting, as I'm too sausage-fingered to master that circle-of-death stuff, and everything and it's wife can spot me when I'm supposed to be the spotter. Tier X tanks can render upper tier lights irrelevant due to their view range as it is, so what benefits will tier X lights have to make me want to grind for one?

 

 

Seems like many months ago now, I had a great passive spotting game as a light.  Went through most of the game spotting tanks for my team without getting spotted.  Was able to sneak a few shots in there when the enemy was distracted.  Mastered the tank with very little movement after the initial spotting set up.
