Hello boys.

 

Did you notice that starting with the last patch the X3 bonus from Premium Account doesn't work like it used to ?

 

I noticed that now if you have accelerate crew training on it doesn't go to tank experience at all but probably to the crew ?

In vanilla you can't see crew experience anyway.

 

And if you have crew boosters on - does this X3 bonus multiplies with the crew boosters ?

Can't tell.

 

Best regards boys

Everybody should know it because it was in the patch notes and it was talked about before patch by devs.

 

No, it should not have any effect on the extra xp from booster as that's not the way these things work (bonuses are almost always only based on base xp/credit values)

Thanks

The premium 3x bonus only applies to tank XP and never goes to the crew - so if you use it on premium/elitef tanks - you are throwing it down the drain.

 

This is not a bug and was by design, as you can choose when to apply it, and could change crews in between when you earned it/when you apply it.

You're wrong here. Look:

Trust me, it's not working now as it was released with the 1.5

You still get free XP from it, so its not completely wasted.

Are you REALLY sure I am wrong? Where in the article does it say the bonus will be applied to crews? Though it does specifically say it can be used for speeding up tank grind.

 

it was a staffer that mentioned the reasoning behind it not being applied to crews, it’s not something I would make up.

 

But hey- just dismiss me out of hand, just trying to be helpful.

Yes Your wrong the bonus has been changed, it wil now apply to crew xp (if it's turned on) but it's not stackable (to crew) with boosters, first win of the day etc.., Far as I can tell it's applied as a extra, on top which which is obvoius as its has to be applied manually by pressing the button after a battle..

  The advantage is if you have moved a crew for credits with the extra (non stackable) bonus applied you can get that crew back up to 100% within a few battles, cuts down the amount of games played with a sub par 100% crew..If you don't want pay gold for retraining

It was changed with the release of 1.6 See here.

  • Reworked the logic of adding the manageable XP bonus within WoT Premium Account. Now the extra XP will be sent to the crew according to the same rules that are applied to the Combat experience:  

If the Accelerated crew training is disabled (or is not available) before the beginning of a battle, a share of experience will go to the crew, the rest will go to the vehicle.

If the Accelerated crew training is enabled, all experience will be distributed between the crew members.

Well many thanks I didn't notice to be honest those changes when they first released 1.6

Most likely because I was grinding Skoda T50 who was not elited.

 

Thanks again

Giving this post a bump, because I've only just realised the change. I was letting all that XP go to waste without realising it can now go to crew training. D'oh!
