I have 292000 free experience, but it wont let me use it in the game. Well at some low tier tanks, i can use like 2k free experience, bit if i want to research higher, it sends me to the screen to pay gold to buy more free experience.

I havent played wot for over an year though, but i recon i should still get to use what i had from last time :)

I really do not get this, i took an screenshot, but i cant upload the image, it says the server returned an error during upload

I guess you have accumulated leftover XP on your tanks. This XP can only be converted to freeXP for gold. Do you know about the 'accelerated crew training'? If not, that is the small box on your elite tanks above your crew. Check it. Your crew gets trained faster and you do not gather convertible xp anymore.

I'm going to doubt you have 292000 free xp, but instead you have 292000 convertable xp.

Make sure you got mods turned off, some mods lock your free XP to prevent accidental spending. This is a mod feature, NOT WG's.

I'd suggest a ticket to WG, along with screenshots.

What UrQuan said. I use mods that allow me to lock my gold and free xp so it doesn't accidentally get spent on things I don't want to spend it on, so first verify you don't have a mod doing that as well.

This. Some mods have a little padlock next to free exp so you don't accidentally use it. Just click it to unlock it.

Screenshot would work wonders but there is probably a little padlock icon by your free exp you need to click to allow you to use it.

Another case of people blindly installing random things on their computers.

It's a mod feature, but glad you found the issue. Just be very careful when downloading modpacks, they contain alot of features, some of them work automatically & can be very confusing when not expecting it (like in this case, the padlock for the free XP)
