This bonus should be permanent and active all the time

I agree. This eases the pain of being the "best among the losers", even though you would need "courageous resistance" combined with those percentages to really feel the effect in a loss. Rewarding those who carry games with extra crew XP is a great idea.

Good missions.

 

Also, has anyone else noticed how you have to be in the top 10 of your team in most missions lately? Is this WG actually starting a war on the Bots?????

These missions are a nice addition to the normal gameplay.

To be fair, we have been having extra crew XP for the last couple of months, with x2 and x3 over the holidays, current 1.2 coefficient for top 3 etc. Hopefully it'll continue, a crew can never be too experienced.

Sure it takes a very long time to complete your 6th skill training on a vehicle that will earn less than 1k XP per match.

 

In RL it will also take skill and passion of the human being to become a true master in its field of expertiese.

IMO, the exponential experience gain tries to reflect this.

 

10%+ of 6th skill training would be about 750 matches, something I will always appreciate.

 

I would also like such reward to be permanent, to reward good gameplay.

Well, not bad... if it were made permanent as "azakow" said to reward good players would be nice, but as far as I'm concerned there is always some bonuses to be in the top 3, which is nice!

It really depends. For the first 10% of the 6th skill you need 40k XP, for the last 10% about 2.5 million

The mission rewards are offered in an odd way - but meh ... crew bonus is crew bonus and that is always a good thing.

 

For anyone that has not noticed, IF you come 3rd for example you get a 10% crew bonus from the bronze mission, but if you come top you get a 10% bonus from the gold silver and bronze missions making your 30% bonus. 

 

I was hoping to get a medal table that showed me how many times I came top second and third over the period, but my the end of the event it will be impossible to tell.

Gold = Gold

Silver = Silver - Gold

Bronze = Bronze - Silver

Let the games beginn!

I assume that this has to do with the Olympic Winter Games in Sotchi.

I've never seen a competitor receiving all tree medals at once.

Hey this is WG and not the RL!

 

Since the battle result screen will show all three awards, I assume the calculation will also be different that advertised.

 

Asumption:

800 base experience earned

top XP earner for that match

crew experience coefficient = 1.1 for each medal (taken from the ingame result page)

 

800 * 1.1 = 880 = Bronze

880 * 1.1 = 968 = Silver

968 * 1.1 = 1065 = Gold

 

1065 is somewhat different from 800 * 1.3 = 1040.

The difference is about 3%. Is this an additional gift?

Bonus's DO NOT work that way.

People assume incorrectly

Bonus's DO NOT STACK, they ADD.

10% would be x*0.1, so you an add them ... (0.1+0.1+0.1) = 0.3, so in total you have a 1.3x mutator.

With the other bonus's currently in game you can currently get a total of

.5+1+.1+.1+.1 = 1.8 bonus, or a 2.8x mutator

If it stacked you would have nearly a 4x mutator

 

Recently this could be seen when WG messed up on the 3x mutator and pulled it, replacing it with a "Double" bonus and "50% more" bonus, people said (oh, we are getting 3x back) but in reality, they lost a 3x bonus and got a 2.5x bonus.

 

Feel free to record your tankers stats and actually check it.

Unless there has been a change in WG Mechanics then what I say is the troooof.

 

Mentor = 100%

Crew member went from 3029 remaining to 2603 remaining

Game was a loss

one of 3 highest scores = 20%

Silver award = 10%

Bronze award = 10%

426 was the points I was awarded (+/- 2)

Mission reward was 279

I think that the mentor bonus DOES stack.

The maths from there get a little fuzzy, but I think it's because they use a Trunc feature

So the mission reward may have been 278.5, it displays 279, but gets trunc'd in the multiplication.

278*1.1=305.8, it gets trunc'd again, 305*1.4=427

 

I have asked around and no one can explain why the numbers don't work out exactly, but it's a lost closer than you will get with base*1.1*1.1*1.1*1.2 (444 award).
