  • No platoons are allowed. Any players that obtain a high score while being in a platoon will not be included 

So basically go solo and have a crap team and perform decent and get rewarded for it? Lame. But I guess you can offer us plenty of weak teams tho.

I think the highest XP I ever got was around 1700 XP.

 

Which tanks have the highest chance to get over 1800 XP? I'm thinking Grille, AMX50B, ELC here... Of those I have none. Any other strong contenders?

I don't think I've seen many people get 1800 XP+ base in a game. How rare will the results be I wonder?

How do you get really high base xp?

 

From what I understand, you should spot your own targets and do dmg to them. Higher tier tanks give more xp, and medals such as Top Gun, High Caliber. Capping and decapping also gives some xp. 

Did I miss anything? 

 

I guess that means heavy tanks could do well in city maps, and medium tanks would overal be pretty good as well. (Heavy tanks would have problems spotting on bigger maps, and a lot of dmg would be done by team members who spot and camp)

 

Any other tips guys?

go a miss?

I don't think you would have won any premium tank. Simply because last time they had competition with minimum 1800 base xp there were dozen of people with well over 2000 xp. Maybe you would have won premium days or something which is still good. But now, when prizes are this good I can only imagine what are people willing to do and how long will they play to reach high base xp. As for tanks that could reach that high I think it's autoloaders, Czech tanks, especially t9 and t10. Some good spotters. Like T71, highly mobile, autoloader gun. Grille maybe as well. Overall I think it's scouts and autoloaders that have the highest chance of making very high base xp.

 

EDIT: If I understand this correctly single player can win multiple awards?

I don't like the way it is. Bcuz unicoms are much more capable off doing more damage what leads in getting more XP. I think WG must invest more in giving prices away in different ranks. Like 10.000k - 7000 Personal rating And 7000 and 5000  Personal Rating would make the change bigger for the most players to win a price. So someone with 9500k Personal rating can't 'steal' prices from players in the 7000 and lower rank.

I think you might be right there as my record is 2400 base in a 1390 ....3K damage and 2700 spotting??

You're probably right http://www.vbaddict.net/statistics.php?tier=610&tanktype=0&nation=0&premium=1&modeid=0&team=0&battles=1000&groupby=0&fieldname=experience_per_minute&server=

 

I rarely get over 1000 base XP so this will just be too hard for me, even to win the prize worth that costs 1 Euro.

It's quite lame to set the bar so high for such a small prize (a prize that's worth about half the "free" garage slot that comes with the T-45 giveaway).

 

The inconsistency makes no sense.

 

There4 are some nice prizes for the top 15 players.

1800 base xp will be pretty damn impossible to get playing fairly. For the FV4202 mission it was tough to get that 750 base xp every day, now it's more than 2x that.

Hello WG

 

I applaud you for finally putting in a contest for solo players, I almost never play in platoons, just solo, and all these comps for clan wars tanks feels so unfair as I cant even participate. However for this I finally can.

 

Sadly tho it will be dominated by the quickybabies, circons, sir fochs or the FAME(ous for cheating) players above us mere mortals who probs already have all these tanks anyway, but I will try. I use to collect the premiums but the prices just got too high, I still do for the lower tiers, I spent hundreds of pounds on these tanks (yes I cant believe I did). Id love to win the Type 59 that would be a dream as ive wanted it for so long, only second to the E25, I couldnt afford it when it was being removed, but I don’t have the IS3A, the Pz 58 Mutz, the M46 Patton KR or the VK 45.03 either, I collected a lot but it just got too expensive :( heck right now I don’t even have a premium account as it expired and I cant afford to spend on this game atm, so winning premium would be better than nothing as credits are low. But I will try.

 

Ty for even giving me a chance this time tho.

@WG

 

To be honest I do not think a anniversary celebration is the time when you have a best-of-the-best give-away. A celebration like this should be for the broad public, the scrubs as well, those that keep the game afloat and going. A nod and thanks to everyone.

1800 is tough its true but if they set the bar lower then they might have to limit the x1 premium days.

Over six days players would be able to rack up a heck of a lot of free days otherwise.

 

I'm all for events that are adjusted to offer some prizes to all players no matter the time they have available to play, the tier they are up to or their ability.

They did this in the past the object as I remember it was to reach 50k xp.

They gave a reward to all that got to 15k a second better reward for 25k and then the main one at 50k.

 

This contest has  really good prizes so they set the bar high.

 

Events can either ask for players to get XP damage or Kills.

Damage is easier with higher tier tanks, XP in higher tier games and Kills at any tier as long as wargaming offer events and specials that all players can reasonable attempt we are good.

 

edit

Surprised an E25 wasn't in the list though.
