If I did what I did with all of the other nations' starting tanks, I'd elite out the first tank just so I'd have all of my research choices open for later on, should I choose to continue down any nation's tech lines.

Except that the Chinese tech tree appears to be rather linear for quite a while.

No kidding, and the point where things branch out happens to be where we get... a T-34. I already have a T-34 from the Soviet line. XD

Yeah, the thing is this. I'm not especially enthusiastic about a new tank line which consists mainly of hand-me-downs, requisitioned goods and home-modded stuff. Even the French line had their own identity of sorts.

Think I'll probably hawk off the Chinese starter and take the free slot. Not real interested in going up that line.

No, we're getting them about 13 hours from now in NA.

I'm simply going to play the Tier I to Elite it (and maybe even win some gold in the process? ). Whether I'll actually continue on the line or sell it for a free slot depends on how I feel about the tank.

Isn't the starting tank just a slightly-modified French Renault FT?

Hmmmmm

I'm not sure I want to stop grinding my E50 since I've already vowed to focus on it, but the prospect of getting free gold is kind of cool, especially when it's packaged as "the Art of War".

Yay, a decent game where I got to make an impact -- and I did .. and I won! This is how playing a game is supposed to feel like!

Was .1 sec from getting the last Top Gun shot. I notice that low tiers are really greedy on letting people get Top Gun. In my experience with higher tier (7+) games though, i would say about 90% will let you get the Top Gun kill. I've had too many low tier games where they would ram you, grind you or push you to mess up the aiming preventing your TG kills. I usually check their stats after game are they're all guys with under 1k games.

Some of the extra stuff -- premium status, exp conversion and tank customization (season camo patterns, flags etc) -- cost gold, which costs money. 6500 gold is about 29.95 US dollars for example. And let's not get into gold-exclusive tanks like the German Lowe, which costs 11,500-odd gold.

It's very feasible to play through the game as a penny-pincher though.

I don't fancy myself a person who spend money on this game, yet I've spent at least $40 on it, probably more since my Type 62 was half of that. That's a pretty large amount considering most other games I actually bought were usually about $10 a piece.

I don't mind shelling a few hundred on WoT. It's the only online game I've ever spent money on, and the only game to receive my personal money in the past 10 years or so. So yeah, I don't mind too much.

This and TF2 are the only games that I've spent much money on in the last 5 years or so.
