    Wait, why does the Panther cost 48k xp to research while the Vk3002DB costs only 25k xp? It's even cheaper to go through the VK3001H, then Vk3002DB and then the Panther than it is to go Vk3001H to panther.

    Pretty sure it costs more xp in modules to get to the panther than it does to get to the Vk3002DB.

    Edited:

    9k xp in modules to get to the Panther. It costs nothing to get to the VK3002DB, because I already have the 75mm KWK40 /48.

    you are forgetting a few things

    1. if you go the vk 3002 (db) route you're going to have to spend an additional 700k in credits to get to the panther

    2. unless you plan on grinding through the vk3002(db) completely stock, you're going to have to spend an additional 40-50k in xp, meaning you'll spend ~90-100k in xp to get to the panther through the vk3002(db) route as opposed to spending the 58k xp to get to the panther from the vk3001(h)

    3. the only purpose the vk3002(db) serves grinding wise is to give people who don't know which path they want to go more time to choose. if you already know ahead of time it's pointless to go to the vk3002(db)

    Edited:

    although if you're just going to free xp your way from the vk 3001(h) to the panther, then yeah it's cheaper to go 3002(db)

    I'm sorry, but if artillery was as accurate and powerful in real life as this game shows them to be, tanks would've been obsolete after WWII.

    Well, it still doesn't make sense that it's cheaper to just go through another tier 7 tank, then get the tier 7 tank.

    It's not... Did you read anything in my post?

    Unless you're planning on only using free xp (which barely anybody will, and if you do then you're spending gold to get to the panther), it costs more both credit and xp wise to go through the vk3002(db) than it does to just go straight the panther

    I went through the 3002DB so I could get the panther without going through the 3001h.

    Well wargaming assumes that the players will actually play the tanks they unlock, which is why it costs so much more to play the vk3002(db) and go to the panther than just go to the panther.

    The panther isn't the only tank grind that's like this, though. If you're one of those players who only uses premium tanks and then uses all the free xp they've gathered to jump through the tech trees, you also need to realize that you're using gold which is so much more valuable than anything else in the game.

    So yes, while it may be cheaper when comparing the numbers, it will still cost you more time or gold to get through a stock vk3002(db) to the panther only to save 10k xp as opposed to just going through the vk3001(h) route.

    messing around with the su-5 on the test server

    just unlocked it, first shot with it hits an m10 in his open roof

    he gets ammo racked, detracked, set on fire, and then dies within a few seconds from said fire

    I'm pretty sure they would have been deemed obsolete in WW2 too. The Battle of Kursk would have just been a bunch of guys running around with binoculars and radios calling in arty strikes.

    wargaming does an excellent job at putting you in shitty teams until you actually have a bad match, and then it makes you waste your double xp.

    I did that to a guy in my clan once, he didn't realise 'til the end of the battle.

    He then felt compelled to check all of his tanks for other substitutions...

    I figure I'll sell a few tanks that I want to keep once 7.3 is about to come out to buy the kv-3 and is-4, get the extra garage slots, sell the tanks i'll get from 7.3, rebuy the ones i sold prior to 7.3 and resume playing


    might keep the t10 is-4 though, i have fond memories of the tank as a t9 heavy

    One of the first things Planetside 2 devs confirmed was no artillery because they don't believe indirect fire mechanics work well in a video game.
