Great incentive to play low tier prems, thumbs up!

To double clarify some important points here;

 

  1. Previously premium tanks only boosted your credits for a match (unless you used accelerated crew training).  Now they boost your exp received after a battle AND boost the crew exp.  Note this is not free exp and if you wanted to use the exp from your premium tanks elsewhere you would still need to convert it normally (and yes accelerate crew training works alongside this change).
  2. The Tier X vehicles, the VK 72.01(K) and M60 do not have increased credit rate.

So tier2 match of 500 now becomes 500*1.7 = 850 exp, and crew get 1.5 of that for 1,275 each (double for lowest)?...

Or will it be something more along the lines of 500*1.7 = 850 exp (for lowest) and 500*1.5 750 exp (for all)?

Just one question. Will this new crew XP multiplier be stackable with the event bonuses like 2x crew xp for the weekend ?

Thanks WG.

Although I have mostly Tier VIII prems, my Pz.Kpfw. S35 739 (f), Pz V/IV and SU-122-44 will be used more frequent after 12th of september.

Yup, very good idea, and an incentive for people to actually buy a premium vehicle :blinky: Anything which can speed up crew training is welcome. Love your x2 weekends by the way. So if you accelerate crew training, have a x2 weekend, and the x1.5 bonus things should move along properly whilst earning some credits. Thanks WG.

More reasons to play those "worse than elites, better than stocks BUT STILL BETTER THAN MOST TANKS" premium tanks like Type 59, SU-122/44, the future T8 T-54, T-34-3 (yes it's better than both T-44 and T-34-2), T34 (need I say more ???), the future T6 T-34-85 with 150mm EFF frontal armor and it goes on and on.

 

Oh I can't wait to play my favorite T6-T7 tanks when the premium T-54 hits the fan. OH I CAN'T WAIT !

I thought premium vehicles already earned more crew xp than normal tanks, but I was wrong it seems. Thank you for the changes WG. Really nice :)

50% faster crew development in prem tanks = Pay-to-Win


 

Shame on you, WG!

I can see many new Churchill III in the future, and with the split of KV1S, as well as the Hellcat nerf, it will be a little easier for them.
