So at times WG decides to give x5 xp per the first victory of the game, as everyone knows, the free exp is given by 1/10 of the received experience

by the player in grinding lines or playing premium tanks...

 

so when you get x5, suposedly you would get 5 times more experience, lets say you do a good game and you get a 1000 xp

that naturaly converted with x6, would give you 5000 exp, and then converted to free exp, would be 500... makes sense right?

 

Wrong... WG doesnt convert this "boosters" to free experience...

 

its even bizare, because yesterday during 2 ours i activated a 200% free exp booster with the purpose of increasing my stock free experience

so i can unlock modules in some tanks that i dont want to play stock... so i played tanks that i naturaly get great results instantly... like the panzer IV H where without much effort i got 5500 experience plus the 200% boost, and to my surprise my free experience only increased around 200... when it should by LOGIC increase a 1100, (550x2 considering i had 200% booster on) 

 

this is anoying and Deceiving WG... if the x5 multiplier cant be applied to free experience...then why people get them in premium tanks?? 

 

stop being lamme please... its embarassing.. its completely retard this sort of behaviour... i allready expended more than 400 euros in this game

do you really need to be like this? to make this sort of

 

 

[idiot voice] "hmmm we give them x5 boosters so they play more tanks, but they wont unlock free experience... and they dont will not even notice it...[/idiot voice]

It's a x5 xp boost not a x5 freexp boost. If reading comprehension is your issue get someone to explain these things to you in future.

They allow it to boost Crew XP which is based on XP so I suppose they COULD allow it to boost Free XP as this is also based off XP.

True they could, but they don't. Crew XP is the exception being tied closely to combat XP. Generally tho WG have always based percentage boosts on the base XP value whatever that is so this should be nothing new.

Because events counts of your base XP. Just like Free XP does. 5x is a bonus. Just like a personal reserve is, and thus calculated out of your base XP. And since it's not added before. The free XP is not multiplied by 5 either, because there is no event for it. If there is, it's announced as such, and usually only a 2x. You can see how off it is to give you 500 free xp pr first win of the day for a full weekend right?

And you get them on premium tanks because you have to pay gold to get them converted to free XP. It stays on the tank. It's not added to the free xp pool like you want the 5x to do. It's also based on tier, so the higher the tier, the lower the bonus. Tier 3 gets 60% bonus and tier 8 gets 10% iirc. But it's still based on our base XP, not added after the 5x. And again.. you still need to pay to move it to the free xp pool. Free XP you get based on your base XP that you talk about, goes straight to your free xp pool for free. Thus you don't get it for a 5x.

Im pretty sure 5x always gave 5x free xp. Its possible it was stealth-removed tho somewhat recently. I remember quite well that whenever there was 5x id get 10k free xp by just doing few 5x (few as in less than 20). Im 100% certain of that and thats the only reason why i used to do 5x even on tanks i didnt grind at that point, just for the "massive" amount of free xp. And those were times without any reserves whatsoever, 3+ years back.

 

But again, i wouldnt be surprised at all if WG removed that bonus... they cant have people skipping stock grinds for free afterall, can they.

I know it's how they always do it, but just saying that it wouldn't be illogical if they did X5 Free XP (Suspect they want you to convert Premium XP though).

Never did as far as I have noticed in my years here. 5x has always been calculated based on your base XP. So has free xp. As it never was calculated based on your total XP, inc bonuses. And I've never seen the 5x being included in the free XP calculation there. Unless there is a free xp event. Then it's shown as "bonus from event"

Sure it has!

Get a total 8k XP on a x5 special and see if your free XP isn't 400...

Whenever there's a x5 special, it's time to bring out tank, crew and free XP personal reserves and watch the world burn.

Free XP is 1 per 25 and Not 1 per 10.

Actually, it's the time to take the day off. 5x is when the worst teams come out to play.

.well, he was talking about the free xp you normally get without using any gold  ...saying you would get 1/10 of your XP also as free xp  ... which is still wrong ... cause you get 5% free xp and not 10%
