Do absolutely nothing, just press battle and get rekt, but be on the winning team.

That is how getting experience works in this game.

WG, change the mercury battery in your calculator, it is leaking. And lube the gears.

The T49 spotted one tank and died. Spotting tanks counts as a little bit of xp.

 

I wonder how the KV-4 got even more xp?

I agree it's plain stupid.

Well then you need to alter the win bouns, and the damage bonus they did as a team, as they killed every one of you. And that's basically what they got besides the join bonus. Or cut that XP in half if they got zero damage.

 

As for the losing team? Well, you could argue for a bonus % for each 5% of the damage you do to the enemy team as an example. But then you could just promote redline farming too when it was a sure loss.

Definition of "Do nothing" is do not a thing.

Those screen shots show something else.

Oh, my bad. He pressed W for like 20 sec.

It was my team that did nothing, you are right in essence. 

KV-4 managed to cap 86 points somehow. I think he crossed the bridge (on Tundra).

 

And about win EXP bonus. So, T49 "won" by being carried after yolo-dying. He got a bonus for a win that he contributed to by receiving 6 shots while firing 0 times. He got EXP for something that others did. EXP is gained by performance, and he was amazing, as usual:

 

 

But it is fine. WG knows the best.

Perhaps the win bonus should be a multiplier.

Something like you do your EXP, but if you win its multiplied by x1.5, x2 or whatever. Simple, and I believe fair.

That can't be worse than current nonsense.

You lost and he won. What's the nonsense? If you had played better and got a battlehero medal you would have gotten more XP than him. It was a normal loss so you didn't get anything extra.

It's 1.5 atm. But it's not based on what they do... or did not do. As the damage they did as a team still counts on that base. Thus why bots get so much XP on a win. So a simple solution could be, if they don't do any damage, they don't get that team bonus.

Experience is something you get by performing, repeating, practicing, improving. Not in this case.

What I see above is nothing but a random coin toss bonus you get when you press Battle.

Yes, doing better means you will win more and you are "fine", but for the majority of players that can't break 50% (give or take) WR, EXP is just that - a lottery.

 

But doing exactly 0 for your team and getting more than others who did something is stupid.

Mind you, I did fine, got up the hill, fought there, killed two tanks, took one shot, came down, defended, but eventually ran over by 5-6 players when I lost my HP. It was a decent game.

 

He did as much as he would being AFK  - and still got more exp than 13 players on enemy (my) team cause "he won". Ridiculous.

Afaik, if you get an epic medal like Pascucci's or High Calibre you're credited the same amount of exp/credits as if you were on the winning team.

The so-called "Courageous Resistance" bonus.

 

So yes, performance is to an extend rewarded even if you lost.

And seriously, how many battles do you expect to win by doing nothing?

 

Yes you will make progress but very slowly and it will be pretty boring.
