I've been grinding packages on certain tanks.  Recently continued with the Brit Heavies having left off the Churchill VII.  Started the Black Prince and really haven't heard too many positives about the tank.  With the current meta slow heavy tanks that aren't top tier are being left behind or used as arty cannon fodder.  Lets just say the grind was painful but, more enjoyable than going though multiplayer.  Taking 6 to 8 shots just to destroy a red light tank seemed ridiculous.  No doubt the BP is the stinker of the line.  I'm sure it would do well as top tier or city maps but, just couldn't force myself to play multiplayer with the lack of alpha.  So I started the grind on 4 July and cranked out the last 20,000 xp of Thursday (to include two matches of Proving Grounds).  I tried to average two runs a day.  That would net me roughly 4,500 xp and about $40,000 silver.  So WS if a viable source for grinding.

 

 

 

Note:  I tried running the Caernavon stock through WS.  Immediately after failing the first run I spent free xp to upgrade the gun.  And I thought playing the T VII BP was bad.  That package was beyond painful.

Also what really passes me off about WS is the rewards and the increased difficulty.  WGCB increased the difficulty (I guess one player said it was too easy) but, didn't increase the rewards.  Think that was pretty sad.

I used PG Encounter Himmelsdorf to unlock the big gun on the E 100. It worked so well that I haven't ruled out using it and WS for other grinds.


There is literally an Xbox 360 in a museum, and this is the best joke you can come up with?

Conqueror, Chieftain and FV215B , through war stores, currently adding xp back on to the conqueror. Also the M46 and M48 Patton, Maus finished and try to get the Pz VII.

I grinded up the the E3 and E4 in Live Fire and in Proving Grounds Smirish. I don't care, I did enough grinding in live matches and I could make way more xp this way. I even grinded to the final gun on the E100 this way...super fast...super easy.

Why ? Been doing the ops in PG & WS since they got added, may as well use the XP as well as making silver. Only takes 1 hour each day before MP.

I’m guessing your one word answer goes hand in hand with your forum name?

Not to hijack here....but for clarification purposes.....I just went into P G Skirimish, which was Mines map, in my VK 45.02 (P)  heavy.  The 14 greens were shooting at rocks and buildings in a comical manner.  I killed 4 greens and the end result was a loss of silver and an earn of 745 xp.  I took no damage but dealt 3,200.

 

This is better than Multiplayer?  I must be doing something wrong.  Fired std ammo, had all of the OPs enabled.

 

Any insights appreciated.  I have a grind or two I would like to do in the closet and not in public.

I never grinded the VK 45, so I can't speak from experience regarding that tank. But, for ex., I was averaging between 1000-1500 xp a game, with premium time, grinding the E100 to the final package. Seeing how the games only lasted a few minutes, I was raking in the xp while making a bit of silver. I wouldn't recommend doing Smirish without premium time, otherwise it seems the xp isn't worth it.

I don't use PG for XP it's pointless and too low, PG island race only for 80k silver using my vengeance and 2% on a crew,  War stories live fire exercise and Tigerfibel, I run my conqueror twice daily with XP ops for 5/6k XP and pick up an extra 70k silver through live fire and My KV 5 once through Tigerfibel for 150/160k silver and that also adds 4/5k XP on my soviet crew, sometimes I add a silver boost for the extra 100k silver. Then I run my vengeance through live fire again twice for 10% on a crew and an extra 135/145 silver . Then it's on to multiple player for the rest of the night. Basically doing that pays for me doing what I want in MP. Started out as making silver and completing the ops , then I noticed I was wasting the XP. So I use the XP for training a crew and XP on a tank. 

 

I laugh every time someone says why / lame / pointless. Because I've purchased every tank available to me and fully equipped them for the TT and still have 120 million silver. Not forgetting the skills and perks I've added to crews. The free garage slots, days of premium and boosts in WS. 

 

Usually an hour each day completing the ops...

 

PG mines had a glitch, when you move up the rest of the team doesn't move up with you and sometimes you get to kill 13 reds. Been a known issue for a while. I only use that for the 3 kills op and 3% on my vengeance crew I'm training.

PG works a little better with premium time but, be aware that there is a possibility to lose silver with higher tiers (even with a win).  Also noticed the net silver is very little at those tiers (but silver is a non-issue for me at this time).  I found Encounter or Assualt mode to work the best but, rarely even play PG anymore.  Tried T Ridge last week and the green bots are worthless while the red bots are extremely aggressive.    Still occasionally run Island Race if I got the time.  Works well building up Chinese crews in the Type 59.

Live fire with the carny was great for me . The tanks fires quick last I recalled and good armour . There is a spot where you can go hull down and they are forced to come at you head on . It’s easy xp and silver.
