x40 conversion rate...

 

Nice, although the only issue with that is it would be silly in the future to convert at a lower rate. That's a huge gold difference if you're looking for a conversion.

I was happy to see tier 8-10 30% discount but then I saw it was only for British vehicles. Why, Wargaming?

 

Other then that, nice!

Marathon for British tank, so they are tying it into that event.

Instead of 35 for 1 gold we get 40 for 1 gold.

 

Not bad actually.

Why WG? Why do we need even more OP SQ in tier X battles?

Nope it's regular xp. As it is only available on premium tanks and tier X it's pointless. Unless you uncheck "accelarate crew training" and convert it with the special offer.

 

x4 is nice. Calling it "the now famous xp fever" on the website is laughable. This is at least the 3rd time this year we had this xp fever special. Just a blatant money grab. They getting desperate.

That would be too useful.

 

These specials are useful for only 2 things

 

1) People who like to spend lots of money Free XPing their way up the tech tree.  40 to 1 conversion and the ability to dump 50k XP onto a tier 8 premium.  So for the low low cost of 1250 gold (£4.50) you can get 50k Free XP.  For this you need ACT off.

 

2) People who are grinding a new crew.  If you are careful, with ACT on, you can dump 100k XP onto a fresh commander.

 

But crew XP is essentially broken.  The exponential nature of it means that once you reach 3 skill your progress is soooo sloooow as to be a wast of time.  Roughly speaking 100% main skill takes ~100k XP, each skill/perk after that it doubles, so 1st perk requires 200k XP, 2nd requires 400k, 3rd requires 800k, so by the time you start the 4th skill you've already earned over 1.5M XP and need another 1.6M to complete the 4th.

 

This is why WG give away so many high multiplier crew XP boosters.  They are effectively valueless.

 

x4 is nice after the x2 for the past few weekends, but much like crew XP, most players are only grinding a handful of tanks so the x4 only really benefits a handful of games.

I would be happy if the mission XP would count as base XP :trollface:

Then I might even be bothered to do the Marathon, so far I have 0 xp in it.

Glad you stuck to the 15 wins requirement (in stead of 25 wins like previous times), but previous xp fever special was doable with NON-premiums too, so its a bit disappointing that you have gone back to the premium-tanks-only limitation. Great to see you have improved the conversion rate though!
