Oh... well... anyway, I did the math and it looks like you can fully grind the IS-2Sh without gold. I created the following Google Sheet showing the Pin requirements and Spare Part payouts for the various tracks (screenshot included in the spoiler down below), as well as estimates of the average 3-mission-set Pin payouts: [Edit: Spreadsheet now defaults to a sheet where you enter in your Stage, Mission tier, and current Pin balance... it'll tell you whether you're likely to earn the IS-2Sh and calculate how many pins over/under you'll be (based upon the average Pin payout per tier... which you can beat with smart mission skipping)].



Bottom line:

  • If you hit all your missions... with a little luck and/or selective mission skipping, you can get the IS-2Sh via tier VIII. [Edit: Only if you got the day 1 missions on 5/7, giving you 29 mission resets. If not, you'll definitely need some IX mixed in.]
  • If you go tier IX or X, you might even be able to snag the IS2-Sh and the bailout track
  • If your priority is spare parts and you expect to go all the way... you should go down the Booster path.
  • If your priority is spare parts and you don't think you'll play enough to get to get past stage VII... then go down the IS2-Sh path. 
  • If your priority is boosters... well, you're probably new at this and not checking the forum. On the off chance that you are, I'll take this opportunity to present an important tip: If the team calls a direction, please do us all a favor and follow along.

Ive got too many tanks now. At the rate I'm getting spare parts any of the 9 tier seven tanks I own I won't see for 6-7 years. This is a non-event for me.

nice worksheet!


The spare parts paid in the event are so low. You probably get 100k+ SP out of completed missions in 14 days.

You should note that you are using 29 sets for your calculation, and for quite a few out there, it is already an impossibility if they didn't save the set from prior to the event.


In short, tier 10s and tier 10s only if you want a free tank.

good work! now all the forumers can stop whining

   ​"Well John, people have different priorities. Some are here to drive historical tanks and have fun, others for the glorious color coded numbers and other for the relationships and friends they've made. The middle group are the ones who'll say they can't play due to 3.8, they're afraid of having smaller numbers than everyone else and losing the imaginary position they have. They're also the same people who immediately pull stats into any discussion so that they can try to discredit the other side. I will admit I have good stats but I honestly am here for the tanks and fun. Once this game becomes anything other than that I'm out , but until then I'm here to stay."

I sat out the goose event because I just grew sick of it but I don't feel so bad about this.  Maybe that's the secret - skip every other one.  Hopefully the next one is an awful tank I don't want like the M6 Zika virus edition.
