I got 392 spare ones, of all sorts. I just do not seem to bother using them, and I still got enough credits. So OP, what u on about?

There has been talk of changing it from hours to battles.  Or perhaps a number of battles with a time limit also.

The secret is not to stress yourself about them.

 

I won't let some pesky personal reserve dictate me when or how much I have to play. When I want to stop playing now I will stop now. Already several times I have activated some reserves, played only a single battle and then closed the game.

 

I concede that if I were to actually buy some reserves then there might be some more pressure to keep playing, but probably for that very reason I don't buy personal reserves.

It would be interesting. Who would gain? Say for the sake of argument that start simes for a player's battles are 10 minutes apart, and that full hours are played; that's 6 (or 12) battles per "reserve". Were battles 6 mins. apart, then 10 or 20 battles/reserve. Hm.

WG if it meant more people paid for them.

 

10 battles with a 24h expiry seems reasonable.

I kinda get where OP's coming from... even though I have more reserves than I need and I frequently forget to activate them anyway. When I do activate them I kinda feel obliged to play the full duration or I am shorting myself somehow. It remains my own fault of course, and it's only free stuff in the end (mine are all from events anyway) but a reasonable amount of battles per reserve seems like a more pleasant option to me as well. Maybe 10 battles per hour the reserve would otherwise have worked for?

Then don't waste time posting here until the timer is gone. Even if it was on a pr battle basis, you would get 3-4 traded for one 1 hour variant If WG is that generous. You get 4-6 battles out of an hour at best. So I don't see the big issue either way. Some battles lasts 2 min as you die early, some is dragged out to the last few seconds. And since battles differ so much, ppl would be back to complain, asking WG to reverse it to hours. As they feel it's wasted on steam rolls all the time. I can see it a mile away. It's best used as is.

Amateur. I can die at least seven times per hour. Some weekends I manage seven times in 10 minutes!

Could be a forum bug or you just clicked the send button too early.

 

@ topic: Homer's suggestion sounds reasonable. Right now I get maybe 3 or 4 matches in one hour.

How the heck do you only manage 3 or 4 matches in an hour? I did that many *Frontlines* per hour last night.

I like to give a pep talk to my crews in between battles.  Depending on their recent performance, that can take a while, and may include tears.

You manage that by being frustrated because the game isn't that fun to play anymore and thus doing something else in between the matches.

I just wish they worked in Strongholds and clan wars.

 

I come on at 7:30, my clan will probably want me to take part in something at 8ish and that could take 30-120 minutes.

If I activate a 2 hour booster I might only get 15 minutes (2 games) of benefit from it.

 

The reason WG give away so many is because they've realised that there is a problem with the exponential XP requirements for crew and tank development.

With crew, each extra skill/perk requires the same XP as the total you've accumulated so far.  So getting from 3 skills to 4 skills is roughly the same as from getting from 50% with no skills to 3 perks

You aren't trying hard enough then.

 

That would be another benefit.  The short time limit encourages people to rush battles.

By the looks of it, I've got 287 reserves of sorts. I try to pop some in the evenings when I know I can play, but they just keep adding more and more specials with reserves. :(

So don't worry about it. Play. Enjoy.
