I have saved  a couple hundred thousand free XP.   How to spend:

 

- Get the latest and greatest Soviet Heavy.

        - And which would you suggest.  Which is best?

 

- Use it on the French heavy line.

 

- Wait for Italians to land.

 

TY

It's supposed to be coming, but when and what it will be is anyone's guess. 

 

 

I would wait and if the buy thing doesn't work out use it on the Italians.

It was confirmed in a Battle Heroes Q&A article that sometime in early 2019 we would have the opportunity to use Free XP to purchase premium tanks.  We still don’t know what the scope of that will be(how much, which tanks, length of promotion, etc), only that the option is coming soon.

That "Soon" is causing me issues. Have been reluctant to use any of my considerable Free XP to help out new lines (Polish, New French Heavies, etc) until I know what the situation is. So I'm sitting on over 800k Free XP and kinda resenting not being able to use it to skip stock packages (though my giant pile of XP Boosts is taking some of the sting out of that).

That looks like the smart play.

That's a lot of free XP but it's not life changing.  Don't blow it all at once.  In general the best policy is to skip to tier 5 or 6 on new lines.  Low tiers without a good crew will kill anyone's stats.  Then purchase the top package or at least the first gun upgrade on the higher tiers.

I'm not stealing kills, I'm handing out Confederate medals.

My thoughts as well.  One or the other of these two will happen at some point....
When a man with a .45 meets a man with a rifle, you said, the man with a pistol's a dead man. Let's see if that's true. Go ahead, load up and shoot.

That would be cool. 

Being able to buy any thing with all that XP would be nice.

Wow, I didn't really notice that it has been over TWO MONTHS with zero additional clarification or information since they dropped this nugget on us:

 

In a previous Q&A it was mentioned you were talking about Free XP Premium Tanks, any progress?

Being able to purchase select Premium Tanks for Free XP instead of Gold is currently in development. It should show up in the next release or the one right after that. So late this year or very early next year.

I'm going to speculate and say by 'select' they will be mid/bottom-shelf low tier tanks at best. Although I would happily be proven wrong.

I would use the free xp on gun packages you don't like instead of using to go past a tank.

There are still some severe frustrations, but I still love to play.

If you do use it on the Frenchies, I'd skip right to the 2nd package of IX which is probably the best player experience out of the full offering - the terror inflicted on tier 7 is very real, and the remaining grind to X is pretty enjoyable. If you are flush with free XP, I'd hold of on the X till you know what you are getting into. But prudence would suggest going with the new Russians, all the cool kids are driving the 705A these days. Some threads seem to suggest the 705 is lackluster, so whether the grind to X is a pita if you don't free XP all the way is unknown to me. Or a 430U perhaps? And the Italian crew voices are magnifico at least the female voice is. Whatever she's saying sounds urgent, it's hard to fully translate without the hand gestures. But that's not really a valid reason and you can just customize a current crew. :teethhappy:

This is how I use it. sometimes very frustrating after long grinds to hold off, but I use it for top gun packages and use boosts to end the painful grinds. I, unfortunately, don't get it built up more than 50k before I use it regularly

We’ll see.  They’ve probably learned a few things about what kinds of tanks players are wanting based on the evolution of the Trade-In program.  Personally, I’ll be surprised if they fudge this up(as opposed to other times being not surprised) because they actually stand to make money from players converting Tank XP to Free XP.
