Hi all, just a warning to let you know that if you use one of your x3 manageable XP bonuses, it goes to the tank you used in the battle and not the crew, even if you have Accelerated Crew Training enabled.

I've posted in the current update feedback thread too, in the hope that WG will fix this. (http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/706549-general-feedback/page__st__80__pid__16862688#entry16862688)

Tbh I suspected it was like that. Much like most bonuses the crew won't pick up via missions or events. As those bonuses are stacked after everything is calculated out. 

 

But when you consider premium tanks and crew training. Then it would be nice for it to work.

I find it very handy for grinds. Even able to aply it at the end of the session and goig back to the battlescreens so easy to pick your 5 best battles with grind tanks.

That's fine when there are tanks to grind, but it's a fairly pointless feature if you don't :(

If you dont have any grinds at all it inst very usefull indeed if it doesnt go into the crew.

It's a new feature with a minor bug.

 

They'll probably fix this Soon™.

Apparently not - it's working as intended...see link above.

It's actually pretty good this way because you don't have to make an instant decision.  You can wait until you have a few extra wins and pick the best.

The issue is that once I've got the new Swedish tier X, I'll not be pressing it at all if iI can't apply it direct to my crew :(

Oh well, never mind.  WG can't really be criticised for a new feature that doesn't benefit a player who from now on only intends to play 1 tank.

 

WoT is a grinding Game and this helps with the grinding (of tanks).

I don't intend to play only one tank....I've lots that I like playing. But I only have one tank left to grind, and that'll be done within a couple of weeks. After that, the x3 bonus is useless unless I pay money to convert it to free XP, and then I can use it to train the crews that would have got it anyhow.

Yep, have all the tier X's in my garage, but there's quite a few that I've never played, as I'm happy with the tier 9's on those lines.

Thats quite good xp management. You have 10k battles less than me and I still need a few to go before I have them all. I think I need to do around four or five lines. And besides the first 2000 battles I have always had a premium acount. And looking at our winrates, I should score more xp than you and still you managed to get them all with 10k less games. Impressive.

Quite the opposite actually....a massive factor was not understanding crews. The lack of a decent tutorial meant that I didn't know to enable the accelerated crew training on premiums or elite tanks, so I was just building up XP which I then had to convert. So, not exactly the cheapest way of doing things. It also took me over 10.000 battles to discover that you could zoom in when aiming, so I'm sure there's plenty more features that I've yet to discover.

 

Obviously now, my focus is very much on training the crews.

It seems a bit odd that he doesn't want to spend money converting exp when you look at how he has got to tier X.

 

For instance the Italian line he has played tier I II III VII VIII and X.

By the time I reached the Italian line, I was just using free XP built up over time. Granted, in the past I spent a lot on the game, but these days I'm not willing to do so, as I can no longer afford it. However, that's all fairly irrelevant to the point. The fact is that because I HAVE researched almost everything, I'm going to be in a position where I MUST pay if I want to use the new bonuses, and so will anyone else who has researched everything. Taking that, and the situation with blueprints where you cannot earn anything except universal ones, it's almost like WG punish some of their most loyal players,
