Hello everyone. My problem is, that i love to play but i not want to play through 2 hour with my premium tanks for credit. I love these 2 hour boosts since come from reward,  but instead the 2 hour one pls give us 1-1 hour, or let us separate those 2 hours into 2 1-1 hour boosts. 

Same with the XP, i love to use those huge XP boosts when we have 5x XP for first daily win, but for me the 2 hour is way too much and i hate to lose a minute from it if i use it, so i rather finish the boost but i not enjoy at all.

 

Wargaming, help me please!

I think the better solution would be to simply count the time you are logged into the game. When you exit the game, the countdown would stop. That way you can safely use those and don't have to sit through full 2h or something.

Yeah same here, I don't like the idea of burning 2 hours reserves for 3 games, so I mostly don't use them.

But I don't need to rush anything so idc, I freexp until tiers 5 and then I like the grind.

I have something like 300 personal reserves. I just never know how long I'm going to play, so I don't use them.

 

Edit: I have 892 personal reserves :/

I think you all fail to understand the point of giving away reserves.

So because you don't want to lose the benefit of them you don't activate them and therefore have lost 100% of the benefit of having them...

 

Think about that for a minute and then next time you play just turn on reserves every time and forget about them. WG are forever throwing them at us so you aren't going to run out any time soon.

The only good solution would be a set number of battle instead of the stupid timing

Not really.

My feeling is that reserves are like the x2/3/5 or premium time : it plays on the player's fear of losing something if he doesn't play. Amplified with the frustration of not winning when you have a bad session (ranked!), even more when there are marathons.

So not activate reserves gives a (probably fake) feeling of freedom and playing unleashed.

No, I don't lost 100% of it. I still do have them and can use them any time I want. You can't say I lost them.

Also, it's a well known problem that generally people sit on reserves and so I think they will have to change the way they use them. Obviosuly I might be wrong and they won't do anything, but I don't think so.

You have lost 100% of the use of them because if you don't use them then it's no different to never having had them in the first place.

 

No, it's not a well known problem and WG have not shown the slightest interest in making any changes and considering how long they take to do the things they are planning to change you're going to be sitting on a very large pile of useless boosters for a very long time.

I see you still miss the point.

 

You don't get them to make things more pleasant and convenient for you, you get them to encourage you to keep playing for the full hour when you might have logged off after 45 minutes.

Unlike premium time etc. I can see this working like that. As PR going on pause when you leave, be it with 1 min left or 62 min is not unreasonable. But then again I don't see why there should not be a trade option for it. Swap a 2 hour one for 100% into two 1 hour at 100% etc. Then again they throw so many our way now, that I have loads of each. But I suspect not everyone has if they don't have time to play to do all those small missions all the time.

Boosters should work like rentals, when you activate you get to use it for an amount of battles, like 20 or 30.

They actually give them to you so that you will progress up the tech trees more quickly and need to have premium accounts and premium time to fund the purchase of the new tanks and modules as you haven't played the previous tank for long enough to earn th ecredits needed to buy the new one.  notice how they rarely give away credit reserves mostly Xp, Free Xp and crew xp in that order.

 

I have so many personal reserves that i just put them on and dont care whether I play 30 mins or 4 hours.

This is one of the few things Blitz does well, whereby one reserve applies to one battle and one tank.

 

If memory serves, three reserves can be active per battle (applied during the countdown) and the drop rate of reserves is greater than it is in WoT to make up for the difference in duration.

This is a common problem.  I once mentioned it on here and it was probably NUCLEAR_SLUG who said to me something like :-

I used to have about 500 of them and I realised that if I managed to use 3 a day it would still take me 6 months to use them all.

 

That was about a year ago and so since then I use them ALL THE TIME.  The ONLY time I don't use them is when I forget or if they run out and I forget to start more.

 

I've managed to cut the number I have from 500 to about 300 (I recon I've activated about 450 and earned about 150 in that time).

 

So, do yourself a favour and use your PRs, even if you aren't going to wring the full 120 minutes out of them.

 

Over the past year, I have probably earned 3 extra tier 10s, several million credits, 100k Free XP and a dozen crew to their 3rd skill ... ALL because I ran PR boosters and DESPITE the fact that I probably wasted half of every booster.

 

All those extra tanks, extra crew, easier grinds and more cash IS what you have lost out on by not using your PRs.

 

I used to be like you but I'm now reformed.

running 3 boosters near all time i am playing and yet i never run out of them

 

honestly i cant see people their points wanting to see it in smaller times as you get reserves so utterly often. only had once i was running "low" which was about 30 left or so and then quickly went up again. usually having 100+ of them and just cant use them all up
