Only premium tanks allowed to complete that missions, what reason of it? I thought I can get extra experience for regular cactus vehicles but if it allowed only for premium it useless.

Because there's a special on converting to free xp this weekend. If you're not looking to spend gold then keep accelerated crew training ticked and one of your crew will get an extra boost when you complete the mission.

I forgot to turn it off, which wouldn't be too bad except that particular Crew are on their fourth skill, thus a mere drop in the ocean compared to the difference it would have made to my (formerly) Stock KV-3. :facepalm::child:

I get the complaint, but keep in mind that Wargaming doesn't merely design specials to give away free stuff, they design specials to give themselves more potential profit. You are still getting free stuff in the sense that you earn the option to convert (more) experience to free experience. Additionally the experience gained should apply to the crew in your vehicle at the time of earning. So besides the crew experience which is free, you have the OPTION to spend gold to turn this experience into free experience which is a 10k option you otherwise would not have had. Whether you use that option is up to you, but keep in mind it's a free option you're complaining about, not something worthless.

I will get 29k XP (to get all 29 i should have premium tanks on lvl 1-5, 6-7, 8 and have at least 1 10lvl tank). Then if I want to donate for research some branch I need ~1,000,000xp to research all vehicles from 1 to 10. So this 29k of xp is just drop in the ocean.

Less useful for Crew Trainers now that 2 mil credits buys you quite an XP dump.

 

Still I like these events for now as I'm still grinding and like having FXP to skip tanks or buy modules (yes I spend a bit of gold). Only got a few tanks left then I can get to the serious task of mastering stuff.

Yes, sometimes WG like to run events that are for their paying customers. Don't worry, they also run a lot of other events that everybody can take part in.

Not necessarily.

 

The first XP fever allowed all sort of tanks to gain the XP, including TT ones.


WG probably realized how poor that idea was and put it behind a paywall with a conversion special so as to capitalize it.

And when was that again? 3 or 4 years ago? It's been like this for ages yet people still whine about it. It's even better than it was some time ago as it's repeatable now.

 

And we already have some quite often recurring missions that give exp to TT tanks now, so the whine is even less valid about XP Fever event.

The complain is probably down the fact you cannot, most of the time, choose the vehicle you'd like to assign the XP.

Yes and it used to be 25 wins before a reward too.

Which just means that while you play your premiums to grind (crew) experience, you also grind credits that allows you to buy some more crew experience.

Over the weekend trained some (partially) 75% crews while playing many of my tier 5/6/8 premium tanks with activated XP/crew/credit boosters, which might then also benefit from such a crew booster in the future.

Alas, this weekend I also decided to play the TotT from tier 1 (with 50% and 75% crews :facepalm:) - that significantly limited my number of battles in the premiums. Still went up from ~29 million to 34 million credits...

How so? It's pretty easy to do it, unless you just spam battles every 2 minutes by just yoloing. Just wait till the mission is almost completed and do it with the vehicle of choice, just like this current ''Push through the enemy'' special.
