Wouldn't it make more sense to give x2 on every battle, not just on won battles... During this special I bet win rates will drop..

When they do that they get accused of encouraging bots.

 

So no.  It's better to encourage people to play well.

"you will be able to enjoy a x2 XP multiplier on each and every one of your victories"

 

And then:

 

  • Conditions: Place in the top 10 of your team by base XP earned

Honestly, as had been said it would be more logical to give double xp for every battle (win or loss) but still keep the rule that you have to place in the top 10 of your team to prevent botting.

This will make the stock grinds on KV4 and T29 better.

 

Even if winrate is 50%, so on average you are looking at a 30% overall combat booster, with the top 10 condition.

Anyone knows if this x2 multiplier replaces or adds to the x5 bonus that some players have from missions?

If it replaces that, I guess it means I won't be able to use my x5 at all during this period.

But there's still the bot combatting top-10 threshold though, so why not make it for all games.

No it doesn't replace it as your first win of the day doesn't need you to be in the top 10

Because rewarding people for losing encourages people to sit back and damage farm, as we saw in various versions of ranked battles.

 

Winning should come first.

Sure it would be better. But the way they made it you will feel more of a boost. Won game gives more XP and this will be doubled. Only thing - you need to win. And many times, in order to win, you would have to kill 12-15 enemies yourself ;)

But us cool guys know that to be a bad way to gain experience, both combat and personal one. It's just kinda lame to have a special where you are to enjoy its fruits about half of the time no matter how hard you try.

Every game would be a good xp special. I deem this to be a meh one.

Why are people crying you have to be in top 10? It's just to prevent people letting their bots play. Like why do you cry? If you suck that hard you're not top 10 every game maybe you should get your [edited]off the forum and watch some Youtube tutorials:trollface:

Its not about the top 10 requirement, its about the "win" requirement. Learn to read before you tell people what to do.
