Methinks WG don't know how their own bonuses work.

 

+50% +50% +50% = +150% not 2.5x

 

It means that if you should have 1000 xp you now have 2500 xp so they are right, it is a 2.5 factor.

This landed nicely, I want to grind the T110e3 and I have the T95, so sometimes I will probably get that 3500 damage, which will be a nice xp boost.

Nope.

 

Not if you have the Halloween bonuses running too.

 

It's misleading at best.

Another elitist special aimed at the top 3 tiers and good players. A total hatchet job for new players, struggling players and lower tier players grinding tanks since the dmg expectations only realistically be achieved from tier8 onward on a regular basis.

 

You really do have no respect or empathy for new players and those that aren't unicums do you WG? Well here's a newsflash for you WG, take a look at any battle report. 9-10 players from each team of 15, that's 66% of the players base do zero dmg to just 1-2 shots of dmg... and a further 2-3 players barely manage much more than that... that's about 12-13 players in 15. So I suggest you take your set dmg expectations for events like this and seriously evaluate them, because like I said, the only players who will make any use of it are players with my level of experience and top tier tanks. You think that's fair? That the top 8% of this playerbase are the only ones to avail of this special? Get real.

I really don't understand why you care for all this. It is not winning related, so ...

Do your battles as usual, and if you got it then so be it.

 

Plus XP is really overrated on crew. Once you have 2 or 3 skills it's more a question of how you use your brain than anything else.

In that statement does the truth lie. Those who already have top tier tanks and top crew will be the only ones who actually benefit from this and for us it's just a case of "meh... trow it on the pile, don't care" when those that could really do with the boost to catch up to us and close the gap with their crew skills i.e. new players and lower tier grinders that we mince every battle as top tiers, get nothing. It's a pretty thoughtless special and not something many players, especially the ones that badly need it, can benefit from.

Where does it say crew XP? It says xp for battle

The thing that seems a bit disappointing is there's nothing to actually do.  You just get more if your game was good.

 

So play any tanks as you normally would and if you have a "good" game in a high tier then you'll get some extra XP.

 

OK.  Thanks.

Mate, I think you need a strong coffee (a real one), the above calculations (+150%=2,5x) are the same.

 

Just do the maths:

 

1.000+150% = 1.000+1.500 = 2.500

1.000x2,5 = 2.500

What? Why?

Everybody should bring a tank they need XP on. What is the bonus of getting much more XP on your Type5 if you could use this bonus to powerlvla a crapgrind?

for private ryan you need blue wn8 game, that would get you 2nd class badge, for sergeant hartman you need 3k wn8 battle that would give you 1st class, and for major it is over 4k wn8 battle and ace tanker badge level of performance :D

Nothing "special" about this special. The requirements need to be scaled per tier. No idea why you started it from tier IV, you would have to have the game of your life to meet any requirement at that tier.

x3 XP for first victory would have been fine.

Not worth the effort, maybe WG should come up with something that encourages TEAMPLAY and not individuality, most seem to forget that this is not a single personshooter.
