First of all I'm gonna say that this was not a good game by any stretch of the imagination - i got set on fire twice thanks to the wonderful engine of the FV215B and did barley any damage.

 

My team steamrolled the enemy and i thought i may just have done enough to scrape 10-12th place...

The obj 140 does 0 damage and assists 80 while i do 800+ dmg and assist 80 and he gets substantially more xp than me leaving me 13th in a ranked game :)

 

How on earth do WG calculate xp because i dont see how his game was in any way better than my own awful game?

He must have done his work against tier X tanks, while you did what you did to lower tier vehicles.

They either just randomise it or are not sure themselves how it works out

Okay.  I'm going to try again.  Thanks to OP for being pleasant.

 

I ranked my experienced suggested staying alive a long time and tanking damage got you XP.Can't prove it but I was often late to die (and no sir I did not camp) in Maus and naturally blocked a ton of damage.

Only thing I can think of is that you had someone spot your 800 so you only get xp for 400 of it, that's 1 shot of dmg, The Obj 140 hit 3 shots, perhaps 3 tracking shots, crits give xp, ....if you died early and he was alive for a while...living tanks get a small % of rest of teams xp for actions team does while they are alive. That could be enough to overtake your 1 dmg shot worth of xp perhaps.

 

One more thing, if you done team dmg that would subtract from your total.

I'm actually leaning towards this to. As there are at least two tanks in each round you would assume swapped spots on the leader board. As I've seen people camp the red line get top 5, and the guy that did 2x more damage then him at close range, get spot 13. As the last ranked match I played. I did 500 damage on others spotting before I got ammo racked on the first hit I took early in the game. I got top 5. And way lower down then me was a HT brawling the HT line that did at least 5x more damage then me.

I am wondering if staying alive counts as xp, I got all way to tier 3 last night when every battle was lost simply by being last man down

 

the mode is broken
