This is useful for those who happen to be grinding these tanks at the time of event. Or for those who can research them and will to grind them. Otherwise all you get is bonus experience that is useless unless you are willing to convert it with gold.

Those events would be much more useful if they granted double credits instead of xp. Especially for premium tanks. I find myself more often short in credits to buy tanks I researched rather than vice versa.

Bonus experience you can only convert with gold means you have to buy gold - $$$$$ for WG

Short of credits to buy tanks you have researched ? you can get some quickly by buying some gold - $$$$$ for WG

You can play WoT as a free to play game, but you do have to expect WG to do everything they can to encourage you to give them money

You  are naive, tell me of someone who is low on convertable xp, these events are useless. If you play no premium tanks and only grind then maybe you could use extra xp to convert but more often you need credits, in which case such events would make sense to play tiger if you have it, otherwise you ignore it.

Or you use the XP to boost your crew a bit. No point in collecting XP on elite tanks if you don't want to convert it.

All those x2 you get with Tiger P during Tiger Day make it worth event.

Anything to reduce number of needed games to be played in that tank.

This! I actually wanted to finished the VK3001H, but switched the crew to the already bought Tiger P and managed to upgrade it fully already, from starting with VK3001P gun and combining it with normal xp and crew xp boosters is was excellent. It was really worth it.

I don't get al the negativity about it, while usually I am pretty pessimistic. I'm not interested in Centurion AX, so should I make a new topic here to complain I want something else as top of the tree?!

 

Indeed, the question is: what's wrong? nothing. you get good crew training if you have a variant of Tigers as premium or make some nice progress while grinding any tech tree line that has a connection with it.

You never see the "Accelerate crew training" box?

You are talking of me. I have not fallen into the trap of converting XP for real money since I started this game many years ago. That doeant mean I havnt slipped over the line when researching tanks by a few hundred XP, but its not been often and I will convert that during offer time but thats just because I am OCD and having wasted XP lying around annoys me.

 

Currently I have 23 Convertable XP

 

As for the event I just considered the XP to be a welcome crew boost

Normally I have none as I've researched everything and have accelerated crew training enabled on all vehicles. The last couple of weeks I switched it off on the Leo to build up enough to unlock the new Swedish tier 8 medium, but forgot to check how much I need before building up 160k. So, I'll be converting the extra to buy modules (my first paid conversion in a while), and also using 200k Free XP that I built up since the wheeled vehicles came in to progress the same line.

Due to the same OCD issues, I'll have to do the conversion BEFORE unlocking the tier 8, in order to ensure that I end up with 0 XP on the Leo when I'm done.

A great event got plenty of crew XP on my T8 German arty.
