I'd like an event to convert unused XP to something useful. e,g, where you sold a tank with XP remaining rather than continue a grind or just forgot to convert to crew XP once a vehicle became elite.

Keep explaining this to WG or at least trying to this is only useful if your training your first set of skills after that its just not worth the free xp cost.

 

To get my commander in my type from 84% recon to 85% 4th skill will cost me over 6k free xp.

 

No thank you.

Same here, i doubt they'll do something like that though, as it wouldn't generate any cash (or potential).

Just an example:

To get my crew in Panther from ( first skill ) 32% to 100% takes aprox. 40K free exp for 1 crew member.

 

40k * 5 crew members = 200k Free Exp.

 

200k free exp = 8000 gold

 

WTF!!!

 

No thanks for another useless event.

I appreciate the event. Of course, it's not useful for 4th skill but for someone who decides to keep lower tier tank and needs to get a new crew (either for the new tank or for the lower tier tank after moving the crew) it's great (6th sense primarily).

Appreciated but probably will not use it

Useful for those that have unlocked all the tanks they want to, once you have done that there isnt anything to spend XP on.

Well untill a new tank or tech tree gets added to the game.

 

I have used it in the past on a couple of commanders to get sixth sense fater but find its not really worth it.

It takes XP away from where I really need it unlocking new tanks and modules.

 

Give me something to convert credits to xp and I might be interested, or an event with 50%. 30% and 15% off xp cost of tanks rather than credit price.

Credits I have XP is the valuable commodity

I've got premium tanks to train my crews, that's good enough for me. I consider free xp far too valuable to throw them away like that, and I would not advise anyone else to do that.

 

Seriously, I think I wouldn't do this even if I had unlocked all Tier X of all branches. Knowing myself, I would save them for a new line to be opened and then using them to unlock new tiers right away. But perhaps that's just me ...

Its good, but not for me,  My free XP is for unlocking module (currently 148k sitting there waiting for something to do with it)

And when you'll rework the crew system in 2016 all these free xp put into crew will be lost... GG but NO !

Only an idiot would use Free XP (5% of received XP!) for Crew XP. It's not worth it at all.

Nice try WG.

What about some Crew retraining or reskilling ?

The problem is not in the idea, but the calculations.

The 1:5 ratio is severely underestimated.

The proper ratio should be closer to 1:50.

Seems my post got deleted...

The example photo they have is wrong... It shows you getting twice as much as you do in game 10:1 instead of 5:1

Its been like this from the start, but they like a stock photo that makes it look more worth while than it is.

I'd never use this and I'd advice against it. It's extremely expensive.

I think it was 20 for 1 on the RU server at first... Then they thought it was too high due to usage and changed it down to 10 to 1 (that's when the stock photo was made) and then it made it to the EU server where it changed to 5 to 1...

And yea, it's FAR too expensive.

100 gold buys 2,500 free xp

100 gold buys you keeping a skill at 100% (73k at worst for the primary training)..

so 73k / 2.5 = 29.2 ... I think that would be a "okay" value.. But as long as people are gullible enough to burn free xp on this, then so be it.  If people are converting xp to free xp and then doing this on top then wow, that's wasteful!

42k free xp would buy you your first skill... That's just nuts.

This free exp to crew exp was useful for me once, when i moved a BIA crew to a tank that needed a radio operator i didnt have yet.

So i spent 42k free exp to get bia for the new radio operator.

Quite a fair trade in this specific situation, very comfy getting crew back up and running instantly rather than having to grind xx-xxx battles with an entire crew with a non working perk/having to drop skills for crew, twice.

Another good use is if you want your new commander to have 6'th sense instantly.

Other than these situations i do not recommend spending too much valuable free exp on training crew. But my point is it's not completely useless if you have free exp to spare.
