Get ready for a massive special, not only because it focuses on heavy tanks, but because it also brings solid discounts, bonuses and a new Free XP conversion feature!

Nice!

 

-Double Crew XP always welcome, have two crews at 92% 6th sense. Then again I've got some free XP so might convert it.

-KV-2 on discount, great purchase for the missions.

-Might also get the AMX100 back for CW's.

Not bad... not at all bad... Although I think the "free xp to crew xp conversion" will still lead us to spend gold for stacking up more free xp than we currently have. It's obvious me thinks...

I'm not against it, just saying...

Crew xp always welcome on a special and the new crew xp conversion might get a few players with crap crews actually playing with sixth sense and improving thier awareness in matches. *eternally optimistic*

2x crew xp is always nice :3

but....

dont have free xp to spend for crew

and missions are just bad 10 wins for 5 large repair kits is hardly something that would make you work hard towards some objective like perhaps idk do such and such amount of dmg during event time for free equipment / credits / day of premium

That free xp conversion is just insane! 
You will need hundreds of thousands free xp to get even one crew to 2nd skill!!! 
And what is the point in wasting your free xp, if you cant even get to 2nd skill! ????

Just to clear things out, about the Free XP to Crew XP conversion.

 

We have the conversion rate of 1 Free XP = 5 Crew XP.

We have the SPECIAL: Double Crew XP

 

That makes a total of 1 Free XP = 10 Crew XP.

 

The first skill from 0% to 100% is usually 210k xp. If you use the conversion rate, you have to converse 42k. But it is doubled, which means that you only need to spend 21k of free XP for the first skill from 1 to 100%. That actually makes sense, if you look at the images, in which the camo skill is set from 2% to 100%, in 20978 free XP.

 

In this case I will consider to train all my commanders to the 6th sense skill, for example.. It's a nice, but expensive new feature, even with the current discounts/specials.

275k free exp bye bye! :D

(No, I'm gonna keep saving it, I bet in summer there will be something like: Convert 1 free exp for 25 crew exp! It's super effective!)

Hmmm...

Screenshot shows 2%, with 32 exp to go to 3%...

you need 210,064 to go from 0% to 100%

you need 209,749 to go from 3% to 100%

so I'd expect 209,781 to go to 100% (for that member)...

It shows 20,978 for them to go to 100%...

 

While I am glad your showing screenshots, showing a screenshot of a 1(XP) = 10(XP) conversion really hides the fact that its going to cost twice what your showing, unless there is a bug in the calculations.

Or are these screenshots from when they were on RU server, perhaps bugged at 1=10 at that point?

Hehe, appreciate it no matter ... but can soooo see a lot of the players from clans that get gold will now spend it all to get their best crews up those extra %'s ...

 

"Well, your wn might be ...... , but look at this crew!!" <-- can u imagine this as a scenario? I can :D

 

Hmmm,.. can actually also see some players buying gold for this ... but hope not many does .. I'm done spending rl € on this game for while no matter how much I love it ...

 

So I won't spend my free-xp on this sorry...the silly exponetial ratio for going up makes it to costly ... would rather keep them for the cases where the grind of a tree it too painful (e.g. not fun play-wise not stat-wise since that doenst bother me much) ....

 

If you want more €, get out some clear white-list of at least some mods you (wg-eu) doesnt consider cheats ... clear warning on what isn't and also some nasty consequences on using them ... also stop with the copy-paste answers that aren't even related to the tickets ,... I mean ... that is sooo not making us feel like customers you'd like or want around ...

Maybe I missed something, but it says it's free of charge.

Never mind, I understood wrong how it works and I agree. It's not worth it spending free xp on something like this.

You missed nothing.

I think a lot of players sit back and wonder how WG will make money out of this and their only assumption is that WG expects us to buy gold (to convert unusedXP to freeXP).

 

When I see what they are doing here I think its one of two things.  Either they want to draw down all of the Free XP in game (Some players have millions) thus preventing players from researching all lines in games like WoWP or WoWS, or they are wanting to do something for their long term high tier players that sometimes feel neglected. 

 

Perhaps its a bit of both but I could be wrong.  I think the neverending xp doubling cost each level stinks, something like x=(y^(y-1)) would be more than ample and offputting once you get higher up.

Just another incentive to convert tank xp to free xp with gold.  Personally I'd never use it as being able to unlock modules on new tanks I'm grinding is much more important then a secondary skill boost to some crew member.

I like this idea of using free XP to train crews. I've got about 300k free XP at the moment and I don't need that much. I'll have to check out which modules I'll be researching with free XP in the near future, but the rest will go training my crews. I'll probably use it to complete the skills of those crews really close to getting the next skill to 100%. And as WG expected, I'm thinking about using gold to convert the XP from my elite tanks to free XP to train my crews.

This ^,  + it's a kick in the nuts to players who've grinded, (ground ?), 1000's of battles for thier multi skilled crews to get a performance advantage, now players can just buy thier way there :sceptic:, i've got nearly 109k, (and going up fast from battles agst bots on wowp) i've got an IS to upgrade and thats expensive

For me the exchange is only worth it for sixth sense on first skill.  The increase on 2+ skills is not worth is for me. 50k experience to go from 89 to 90% on 4th skill for x6 crew.  There needs to be an increase in the exchange rate the higher the number of acheived skills such as x5 for first skill, x7 second skill etc.
