Hey guys,

Never really thought about it since I usually just clear the daily doubles for the tank xp grinding to the next tank, but with the upcoming x2 XP in every battle weekend starting tomorrow, I would like learn a bit more on this. Does it double ALL XP aspects, like crew xp, tank xp and free xp earned in that battle?

Reason why I am asking is I am debating between playing mostly premiums to train some crews or playing my grinding tanks this weekend. If it doubles all xp aspects, then it would make more sense to play the non-premiums right?

 

What are you going to play this weekend and for what purpose?

Thanks,
Dutch

The potential is here, however in general I do not enjoy these weekend specials (in terms of missions), as it brings out some crazy players, and the game is pain. I enjoy long-term missions or discount, that is perfect, however the weekends... UFFF

I'd grind through grind tanks with reserves, particularly if you want to unlock modules. Just to maximize value.

Great. I was on the verge of selling the Centurion I as an unexciting heap of trash. It might not be, but despite trying my best in it, I don't seem to make much of a difference in many battles- not helped by being bottom tier a lot.

 

Of course, I am not always in tier X, but seldom top to tier VI and VII. Compensation usually comes in the form of all tier VIII battles. I can't say that I am enjoying it, nor will enjoy it in the future. WoT Assistant shows that I have destroyed TWELVE tier VI vehicles out of 100 total (albeit in 196 battles) 12% of all vehicles in a tier VIII that should be able to significantly stomp all over tier VI vehicles- if only I ever saw them.

 

Last night I thought it was going, needing 25,000 XP for the 7/1. If I lost just one more battle, it was going to be 50% WR and sold before I got angry. Tomorrow, I have time to play and so it will be 100% Personal Reserve, wish me luck and away I go. Hopefully I can get rid of this thing much more quickly.


 

The thing is, there are some tanks that I will enjoy, or wish to keep even if I am struggling. I know that they have potential and I just need to unlock it. If they are good for PMs, that helps. With 25 Fire for Effect in almost 200 battles and needing (at the moment) 2500 HP damage to enemy TDs for MT-15 (3) I don't think that this is the tank I need. :(

Right now I have eight Tier IX and two Tier VIII vehicles I'm grinding and I have two Tier X unlocked I have yet to buy.  Clear as day that I need to settle down to build credits.  This weekend might be the one.  If I'm getting x2  all the time I'll take my most profitable tanks out multiple times. 

 

Given the weather forecast and the Ashes cricket on replay on BBC iPlayer I'll have a nice weekend.

lol, good luck this weekend then! But the x2 also doubles your credit income? Like I said; never really paid attention to the mechanics of the x2/x3 etc...

I am in the same boat, but with the Type 61 grinding towards the STB-1 instead.

I'll probably grind the Tiger(P) and others that I want to get rid off ASAP while enabling Personal Reserves and hopefully clan XP bonuses as well.

 

That is how I got 100K on the 13-90 in 4 hours last weekend :D

Hold on to your socks and pants bois. When ever there is a XP special.. all the special people gets a weekend pass from the local loony house. So expect WoT to be a mindbogglingly depressing confirmation of how WoT is a microcosm of the real world where 95% of people are utter tools and should have died by natural selection.

I'll do some battles for the only grind left for me, got ~13k out of the ~117k needed to unlock tier 9 Chinese TD.

If that is true, I'll end up finishing the Tortoise grind well ahead of time ... Damn !
Anyone has spare 3 million credits so I can buy the FV215b 183 this weekend ? I don't feel like grinding Tier 8 Premiums when all I see is Tier 10 battles.

haha, yeah, WG doing something useful like facilitating those who are grinding along the AMX 13 105 TotT and / or FV215b (183) lines? Crazy... :amazed::D

yeah it was crazy in IDEAD too. we had constant Tactical Training on all day. My VK 100p and Mauschen grind went by quickly with that and reserves. 

 

Although don't think i could do another marahon session again this weekend, my play was awful towards the end.

You don't want to buy the Fv183 this weekend as it will be discounted next month (so in 8 days), so you only need one million then anyway.

 

But yeah, gonna focus on 13 90 (30k left) and Tortoise (80k left) to ensure that those grinds are both finished in time.

FV ToTT in december, right up until the new patch rolls in. So you can buy it then, with 30% off.

Whether or not you are playing grind tanks or premium tanks whip out the XP and Free XP reserves.

 

x3 for every battle regardless of win or not should net you at Tier 8+ 3k+ per game.
