I've been thinking about this question for a long time, but I feel like Tier X tanks don't really serve a purpose other than for fun for most players. Tier X tanks suck at grinding credits or winrate for that matter. Obviously they are meant to be the best of their respective lines and Tier X is usually the goal that most players set, but, as I mention before, they don't really serve a purpose other than for fun. The only reason I want to get a Tier X is so that people won't bully me in training rooms.

Why even go to training rooms?

 

Other than educational stuff with clan mates and scrimmages?

A lot of people host minigames in training rooms such as prison, nations, boss battles, WW2 battle re-creations etc. which are fun to play.

Tier Xs are supposed to be an end goal for completing a line. You work hard grinding, and then at the end you get a really cool tank. 
 

And I get it. They don’t really have much of a purpose. But if we removed tier X, now tier 9 has no purpose, then we remove tier 9 and now tier 8 has no real purpose, and so on and so forth. 
 

They are kinda required if you’re a serious tourney player. And getting every tier X is quite an achievement. Even if you’ve only got say 5-6 tier Xs, that’s still months and months of hard work.


  Missiles are not a problem, ya'll just jealous you aren't skilled enough to use them (Ok, ok I'm joking.:harp:).

That's the way I see them. Kind of like an achievement you get for completing the line. I forgot about tournaments as well.

Tier X tanks are usually pretty fun. Plus, you're always top-tier. If you want to compete against (mostly) competent teams with relatively balanced tanks, tier X is the best.

In my opinion, tier X is where you find the most unique tanks. I think tier X also has the coolest looking tanks. It’s a very challenging tier but gives good rewards for success.

I won't disagree with the first two statements, but Tier X burns credits even when you win.

No, tier X only burns credits if you don’t do very well. 
  Even if your not running premium time, you can play X and not go broke. 
 

But if you’re not running premium time, and using high end consumables and provisions, using a credit costing camo, using a bunch of Prammo and not maintaining a solid dmg, DR and SR it can be costly. 

 

I made 21m credits since 10 May 

554 of my last 942 games (30 day) have been in X.

You can easily make bank even if you're f2p. I myself am f2p (well, mostly now since I spent like $5 and that's it) and still make decent credits to fuel my tier 10 games.

Yeah, I know what you're saying. I keep a lot of tanks around such as the Tiger 1, KV-1, and Pz IV G for grinding credits. But that being said, without a premium account and boosters, tech tree Tier Xs do not generate much credits from what I've heard. I don't have a Tier X yet but I'm close, so yay.

Yep, that's what I meant. Training rooms get ruined because some [censored] brings a Tier X and decides to kill everybody. Yeah, they get kicked but often times the host is the one trolling or the minigame involves some sort of fighting, such as nations.

At least 10 is never bottom tier.

But that’s not bottom tier. It’s right in the middle of top and bottom tier.

If its all tier X then there's no middle and bottom tier. All tier Xs are top tier regardless of what of the chart says(or whatever its called before you battle).
