Yes I believe your chosen upgrades affect your MM, but only a tiny bit. Your power level is a tiny bit lower so you get matched with tiny bit lower enemies. It's only a small affect, if anything, you won't be usually top tier, or anything like that. 

Also, once you equip a higher package on a tank, I think the MM will be decided by the BEST EQUIPPED PACKAGE EVER, so downgrading on purpose doesn't work (after you've equipped it once). This one is a rumor, I heard 2 years ago.

I "downgrade" guns from time to time. The smaller gun is sometimes the stronger gun due to ROF and play style. It may also affect MM. When it comes to HP, isn't this exactly what MM is supposed to do? There must be equal HP in both teams, right?

 

Anyway, what is the major differences between 131 and 132 from a loadout point of view? Crew skills?. -Why am I denied success in the 132, when I'm doing fine in the 131? Is moving the crew to the IS-2 an option? (putting the 132 grind on halt until further notice)

I'm pretty sure all of that particular post is rumor. Also pretty sure that it has been stated many times by WG that packages have zero impact on MM. Beta582 is correct. 

 

Goals for the Mini On Tracks.....   purchase already unlocked Obj. 140, unlock and buy WZ-132A (only need 15k xp, so easy enough). Beyond that....   all of the other grinds are too far from completion given the short duration of the event. Still, nice to save a few million Silver and get some bonus XP along the way.

I'll earn a bit of XP towards the IS-7 & T-100 LT.

 

I don't have any Chinese grinds left. I'm not going past tier 6 with the TD's and have all the other tier 10's + XP for the 5A.

 

I might just play COD WW2 instead, a new event starts tomorrow!


You only help your team mates, because they can't be shot at, if they're dead.

HP I believe is relegated to each class, but yes, per class. When a team has a class unbalance, it might get hairy. A team with extra artillery will be underpowered in other ways, things are weighted, it's not so simple, otherwise some silly matchups would occur, forcing way more power onto one side for the sake of HP, etc.

The 132 and 131 are pretty much the same tank, IMO (I do equally well in both, ans use essentially the same strategy, with a bit less recklessness in the 132), for their respective tiers. Similar armor, the 132 gets less speed and more firepower, barely, relative to its own tier. 
The problem is most likely facing tier 10s, as well as being a bit larger and slower.

5A = ? *edit* it's a beefier Chinese heavy *coming soon*
you have XP for others but won't bother with TD past 6? Why? That TD will/should get nerfed soon.

Only on tier 9 of Chinese light tank and no other grinds between the two nations.  I doubt I will get enough XP to unlock tier 10.  I do have Obj 268 and LT 100 unlocked waiting for tier 10 sale.  30 percent is a good discount.  Then get their crews ready for the weekend OP.  Doubt I will since I am on vacation.  Step son has a 360 here so I downloaded the game and upgraded and put on USB flash drive to play here if I get a chance.

I set out and completed the only goal I had (110 grind) today.  Finally decided to play the A-43 that's been collecting dust in my garage.  My god was that stock gun painful.  Will probably buy the KV-4.  Tentatively decided on adding the WZ-132, KV-13 Obj 140 and/or T-62 and the  IS-7.

I’m finally within 20K XPs of unlocking the SU-14-2 from the SU-14-1. 

 


I hope to one day be wealthy enough to be considered eccentric rather than just plain nuts.

Finish the MT-25, make some progress on LTG
Buy 212A to slow grind that out of the way
General progress on WZ-132A and WZ-111G FT

I would consider getting the IS-4, but eh. I'll think about it before it ends.

​Hoping to move towards the T100 LT, currently at tier 6. This will be a help.

 

My goal also.

 

I picked up the T-10 and LTG last night, had a crew ready for the LTG but I want to play withthe IS3 more first. I wanted the T-10 in the garage in case they ever make those soviet heavy tech tree changes.

I had the IS4 unlocked so I picked that up for a saving of around 2mil.  Going to grind the USSR light line as I have not bothered with it at all before am on the Tier 5, T34 which is a lot of fun as its fully upgraded from when I went up the medium line.

I understand wanting to play more with the IS3 but I would just pretend like the stock T-10 is an IS3 with bad matchmaking to make the upgrade process more bearable. Unless you're saving the fully upgraded IS3 for Clash.

As I reach the end of the grind for the kranvagn I am starting up the grind for the Object 140. My goal by the end of June is to have 2 new tier X tanks the only thing thats hold me back are funds. I have 15 million 6 million plus equipment for the kranvagn and 6 million plus equipment for the Super Conquerer whenever that drops. If they could release another season of ranked battles I could easily get more premium time and silver for reaching Grandmaster

IS 7 is researched, grinding XP on T10 for possible heavy line addition.

Rebrought IS for same reason ( got it while it’s cheap )

Might buy KV 4 while it’s discounted as well..... Burning silver!?

 

Cheers MB

Grinded out the KV-4 (horrendous experience) and unlocked the good 100mm on the SU-101.

 

I wanted to get my ST-I fully upgraded and the same for my SU-101 but 4 days was never enough.


 

3 MoE Tanks: 50

Currently Marking: BC-25t AP, A-43, Cromwell, ST-I

Was a good on track for me I bought the IS4 which I had unlocked.

 

I grinded out the 59-16 (Chinese tier 6 light), A-43 (Russian tier 6 Medium) and the MT-25 (Russian tier 6 Light), also bought all 3 tanks (at 30% discount) but have not ran the 59-16 yet.

Also got my T-34 up to 84% damage standing whilst grinding.

Got through the rest of the packages on the T-10 (I had the 1st one already done) 189k to go for an IS-7 and went from 25k xp on my T-54 to 50k xp (slowly getting there for the obj140, 156k to go)
Short but useful on track for me
Pssst. I know who you are. Hail Sithis

I got the WZ 132 1, bought the the su152 and grinded to the su 100m1, pretty short but useful nonetheless.
