Warships started in April yes? I guess that seems like a long time to some?

Good point about people getting better chests and playing more. I started playing this season of warships late and only recently started playing daily at all just for chests and there is a definite Turtling effect whereby you do seem to get matched with opponents who have seemingly superior defence and attack. As you said 2er is largely down to luck, I rarely got much more than a 3 or 4 win streak, losing by seconds and winning by seconds. Up rank and down rank all the time.
3er I have been mostly winning and 8 or 9 win streaks. Much more fun, I should go up to 4er now, probably tomorrow.
My upgrades were maxing landing craft first, then troops then cannons and mgs and mortars, flares, and unlocking brick, flamers and smoke.
Soooo good to have flares and smoke again
I wouldn't recommend worrying to much about maxing flares and smoke. At 4ER and above, not much need to flare or smoke anymore. Kavan also appears to have much more utility than Brick.

for people who just wants intel every 8 hours, which ER level is the best

"Best" is subjective. What criteria are you using? Least amount of effort? Least amount of time?
If you have barrage/GBE upgraded you can just kill an engine at 2ER/3ER level and skip deploying troops. But then you'll have to wait for your opponent to clear your base.

Heavy rushes at 2ER level take like 1 minute. At 3ER, its more like 30secs. At 4ER it might take 90 secs to clear all 4.
Also depends if you have Instant Training, if you lose too many troops you could have to wait to reload. Although if you stay on it every 8 hours, shouldn't be too hard to fill 1 chest.

Really though, if you just are looking for easy intel, Warships ain't it. Better off raiding a couple bases on your map. IF your map is already cleared, you'll need more accounts.

The 3ER level is actually much faster, pretty much gauranteed to get all 3ERs each time, which translates to 50% faster filling of chests.

Chests come every 8 hours. If you get it in 5 minutes, you have to wait 7 hours and 55 minutes for the next one. Speed is not an issue with chests.

In case you were wondering, instead of maxing barrage, I opened the third ER, went straight down the upgrade tree to zookas, and used part of my 1.2 million upgrade tokens to max them.

i did the same thing as brewingbeer, i unlocked the 3rd ER and used the tokens max'ed zookas and artillery to level 3, i can take down most bases layed out to defend  heavy/warrior rush but for now my opponents can almost always take down mine in less time just cuz i haven't upgraded any BC/FT

it's definitely faster getting chests(see brew's point on benefit of "faster")and for players don't have endless reserve, the retrooping situation is a bit better than 2 ER's

I'm kinda wondering the same thing as the OP.  I'm kind of surprised there isn;t a list of how much each level of items cost (like RL level 2, 3, 4, 5  etc).  that would be useful for people like me who are hoarding upgrade tokens at 3ER.  :)

For the record, there is a literal crap ton of players with Max Arty and Max Barrage hanging out at ER3 and bouncing between lv25 and Legendary 1.  On level 25 you always get matched against a 3ER player.  At Leg1 it may be any level ER, but usually 4 or 5ERs.  So you just don't cash in your chest until you hit Leg1 again to get the chest at 100k.  Easy easy hoarding, but you have to get your barrage/arties on the 3 ERs at exactly 12 seconds or you lose.  Barrage1, barrage2, arty1, arty2, arty3, wait for 2 ERs to pop, Barrage3.  Profit.  Get your max level chest in less than 2 minutes.

I'm guessing with about 2 weeks left in the season that all these ER3 players with 6 to 7 mil in upgrade tokens (I have 2.5 mil now, plus 300k per day x 2 weeks) will upgrade to ER4 and maybe 5 and then it will be even more difficult to advance upwards into the higher stages of Legendary

EDIT:  I found  the google doc posted by Chaucer in another thread.  Its awesome thanks.
