Do you know that the additional XP acquisition in battles of these boosters doesn’t count towards your Crew-XP? But that’s not all, you lose the additional XP acquisition by these boosters when you use it with tanks what have Fast-Training enabled. Your crew or tank never sees anything of that additional XP.

 

Is this logical? – I would say no. Normally all Battle-XP incl. factors and bonus-xp were part of the Crew XP so far. But not this time.

 

Is this a bug? – You might think “Yes, sounds like bug, as we had the same trouble with premium vehicle bonus stuff 9 months ago”, but the Member Support answered that it works as intended and refer to “Exceptions confirm the rule”.

 

Is it transparent? – No, it is not transparent. 

 

So, be warned. The XP Booster doesn’t count torwards your Crew-XP and you will not see any additional XP somewhere as soon as you drive tanks with Fast-Training enabled.

If these were as good as premium accounts xp bonus, then it would be a legit way of having short premium account for irregular players which would be a very good thing. But only 15%! err no thanks.

 

Imagine the ability to have +50% xp for 6 hours and have a stock of them for when you play. This way if you don't play for a day or two, you don't waste the premium time.

another War Gaming EU strategy to 'lift' cash out of your credit card

 

You know it wouldn't be half as bad if the 'offers' were genuinely advantageous to us players of WOT its just pay/play tanks with a credit card ok I suppose fair enough (free world) but lol! a 15% extra boost for just 2 hours?


 

if the incentive was there were I thought I was getting a really good deal for my 'cash credit card money' then yes I would be quite interested in paying for a crew XP booster pack as the more advanced a tank crews training gets the better (like way better) the tank plays ~ but come on War Gaming if it was a 25% extra boost for 4 hours and at £5 for 10 packs then yes, where is my credit card!


 

I like Tanks but you gotta start thinking that WG really do think were all 'rich euro stupid cash cows' its just a game i play for the enjoyment that does not make me stupid to jump at 'great offers' not

As for me, I would never buy these, but only take them, as the reward, when they come as events - It is still better to buy premium days for longer periodes, if the 50% xp-bonus is needed, and you also get the credit advance.

 

I think, that WG will see, that the purchase of these boosters will not make much business, and change / remove them again. They simply find out, how the stuff works = Market investigation in live environment.

 

15% of 1000 xp per battle = 150 xp = minimal. 17 battles = 2550 xp, or 2-3 more victorious battles, with this fictive xp amount. A battle last 7 minutes on average, and therefore you will have approximately 17 battles, when activating a 2 hour resource.

 

10 boosters for 5,25 Euro = 25.500 xp and 20 hours of battle.

 

7 days of premium is about the same price, and if you play 20 hours in a 7 day periode, you wold make around 85.000 xp extra, and 50% additional credits - as well as the crew bonus, and fast training.

 

So if my calculation is right, it is a no-brainer.

Probably could be interesting for bots grinding through some line up to Tier 10.

Instead of these useless boosters, can you put the Super Pershing on sale?

Wow, so these boosters are worth something? I've only ever used one once, wandered off and forgot it was activated. Mmm, do I want to buy more? Actually, WG do you want to buy back the ones I've already got?

 

Edit - and why I wonder do you think people would want to pay to get to high tier faster? Premium time at least gets you credits and crew XP, this? Just to get to higher tiers faster - why? To play tier 8 strongholds, and have no chance against IS5's, certainly not of playing that mode, competing, AND of making any credits out of it (or at least the kind they're making). Or tier 10, so we can play CW's and get excluded from rewards for our time & commitment? NO THANK YOU, the exclusivity you've ploughed into the game in 2015 has unbalanced & broken your games economy & the whole point of making any effort at the game for everyone but the top players. Roll on AW.

no offense man, but how about you'd tell us what special will be tomorrow, what discounts and so on, instead of something so trivial that one shot can make or break your special 15% more xp (omg wow) deals?

I don't see why anyone would be interested in this. +15% xp for 2 hours is practically nothing! 2 hours is perhaps 10 games, about half of them on average are losses. An average/sub-par player (no good player will buy this crap) might be able to do 10000 xp during these 2 hours meaning the booster is worth maybe 1500 xp.

Big fail!

You get these bonusses for free in the game. I have 12 and hardly use them to be honest... why would you spend money on them for such low returns? And apprantly it's a waste as the xp do not go towards crew training: they should mention this in the ads for this item.

BTW: Average sub-par players only get around 500xp on average per game, so 10 games for 5000xp, 10% is 500xp.

 

Good or bad player, you get one game's worth of xp with this boost: 10% is 1/10 ;) lol . You must be desperate for XP to buy this stuff; you're doing it wrong. And this coming from a nub (me).
