Hey guys,

 

I am currently on the Churchill VII and after a couple of games I am truly hating it. I am considering freexp'ing past it and the Black Prince to get to the Caernarvon. I would need roughly ~190k xp to do that, and I have ~50k freexp and a boatload of gold (cuz boxes) available. I also have another 20k elite xp i will convert this weekend, so I will still be ~120k short.

 

Question is: can I? Can I convert gold for the remaining 120k (free)xp and basically skip two tiers?

 

I dont think I can, cuz that would mean anyone with lots of money / gold can skip an entire tree to tier 10 without playing a single game, and that is not something I would advocate! But 1 or 2 tiers should be ok right...? :bajan:


 

Or do I have to turn ACT on my premiums off and make the most of the XP Fever special this weekend (+ boosters & premium time) and convert accumelated elite xp for freexp? (Or just suck it up and grind crap tanks like everybody else has / is? :P).

 

Thx,

Dutch

You need xp on elite or premium vehicle first, to be able to convert it to free xp.

You can just convert regular xp to free xp using gold.

You can not convert gold straight into xp.

Just press the convert button, it will give another menu where you can see which tanks have freeXP and how much you can convert, you can still press cancel after that.

You need the XP somewhere to convert to gold.  You cannot simply convert gold to XP.  You need to use gold to convert XP to Free XP.  Just turn 'accelerated crew training' off on some of your favourite tanks and play them for a few days.  You will then have XP earned on those tanks you can convert (using gold) to Free XP.

Thought as much. Thx for the replies / clarifications guys. Appreciate it. :great:

 

Will turn ACT on a couple of tanks off & activate boosters. (And maybe I will also suck it up and simply grind out the Church ;))

This, apart from the fact that you don't have enough XP anyway, so you're still going to have to grind it out on something.

 

Skipping tanks, not the best use of free XP. above T5

You could also grind the Churchill in Tier 6 Skirmish, and only skip the Black Prince.

I have never converted xp for gold, but for the last special after Xmas I think I could have gotten 440k xp for just over 10k gold.  I am sorry I didn't do it now.  Should that special pop up again, I'm going to do it.  I will never skip a tank though, as I don't think I will feel like I deserve the higher tier tanks doing that.  Some of the bs equipment you are expected to grind with can -edited- off though.

Nb- all the accumulated XP that I have to convert is there because as a noob I didn't know about selecting accelerated training, and I also forgot to do so on one of my first prem tanks...100+k on my is6.

TL;DR Unless you have more money than time, I think you should convert to freexp equipment but not the tanks, as even the poorer tanks are part of the experience.

Of course if you do exhaust your free xp getting the Caenarvon, you will have to play it stock. 171 pen and 150 alpha against a VK100 sound appealing?

I dont ever play T8+ stock. I would simply gaze at it in my garage and gather more elite / free xp to upgrade it before rolling out. Just want the Church out of my garage is all ;)

Turn off ACT on tanks, put boosters on and do all the daily doubles on your elite tanks, you can get 5-6k convertible XP per game easily then.

1. Turn off ACT on everything you can

2. Do the X3 over the week-end with as many tanks as you can

2. Convert that XP to free xp using gold

3. You should have more than enough xp for Caernavon now ;)

With the Churchill VII as my most played tank, I'm sorry you didn't like it....  as it fares a lot better than the Black Prince which turned out to be a huge disappointment to me.

i hate both :P

slow, oversized bastards without any gun depression.

the only redeeming feature is the extreamly low required exp for the caravan.

Should have bought santas sacks from WoWP instead of trinket boxes, I'm still sitting on about 260k free exp from them.

Keep grinding your Churchill either until the matchmaking for tier 8 is corrected, or you can skip directly to tier 9.

If you land on tier 8 now and with a stock tank to boot, you will be even more disappointed, it will face tier 9 and 10 most of the time.
