These x5 missions are insanely great deal imo. What they need, as mentioned above, an apply button. I don’t want to waste them on premium tanks.

I made the mistake of buying a bundle of these a while ago. It means I have to try to play only tanks that need XP after the 1st win of the day. Not a good thing when I'm trying to grind credits or use a specific tank for a specific mission.  Please WG, add an apply button.

Are they? For example the standard package is 25 x5 and is more expensive than the 14-day premium time one. With the premium days I get 70 x5 and I can choose on which games to use them. On top of that I get 50% more credits, combat- and crew experience on every game.

I am with 8126Jakobsson on this ...

Although there is an even better deal. 30 days of premium account plus a T3 tank + garage slot for less than the standard 25 X 5XP cost....

Oh I see. Well 70 x3 is still 210 while 25 x5 is 125. I think I at least am getting that right. And it's 26,4% cheaper and comes with the mentioned additional perks included.

 

edit: I'm not sure about that % figure. Maybe I lowballed it. It's early Monday, ok?  :hiding:

I might buy this. Since I don't have time to put down hours every day on this game it is actually worth it to spend money to speed up my progress when grinding vehicles. Yes, even for premium tanks, since I use crews from my regular tanks in them and that will boost their crew XP as well as the free XP gain.

 

HOWEVER...
As I said, I don't put down hours every day on this game*. So for me to put down money for this I want to know for absolute certain that they will not expire. I've bought premium tanks that came bundled with missions, but those missions expires after some time. That is somewhat acceptable, since I put down the money for the tank itself, not the missions it came bundled with. But I do not want to throw money into the sea by paying for missions alone that will expire.

 

So someone, please let me know if there's an expiration date on these missions.

Don't you think it will be a good idea to cut back on all this Bonus XP stuff because the Negative effects of this is starting to become really noticeable now due to BluePrints, Missions, 5x Bonus Applier, Boosters and Packages..... Not including the Convert because that's always been around from the start and something you need to put Money in for, if you're that desperate than yes, do that as i think it should be the only way after seeing all what is happening now.

 

At first i thought it was a good idea and still do in a way for Players like me who have worked hard and did their best to improve as much as they can or at least tried and so looking at it that way, it felt like something we deserved but looking at the player base currently, it's beginning to look somewhat of a rarity now, where there just is not any interest in wanting to get better and just bot it away but with these XP things involved, you get players getting higher tiers who have not developed the right way of playing and than you have complete new players, getting to high tiers faster with no clue of game mechanics, receive toxic remarks from players and just generally ruin it for those who want to learn and actually do stuff.

 

Then comes point where new players quit the game before even starting because they rushed tiers and wonder why they get insulted or just form a wall and completely blank people trying to give advice and than you got good players leaving from frustration due to players on team not having a clue or the enemy team with said new player who camps in places with wrong class of tank where they should not be..... Plus other things but not wanting to go fully into it as this is all about the XP stuff and its a shame because i love this game and hate seeing people constantly moaning about it and giving WG a bad time however i understand and its something they brought upon themselves and it makes me sad.

Was waiting for some "richy boi" to complain that X5 packages force you to play tanks you must grind :D - like duuuh.

25 missions ≈ 100 SEK

50 missions ≈ 200 SEK

75 missions ≈ 250 SEK

75 missions ≈ 450 SEK (includes 7k gold, 5 garage slots and 30 days premium)

 

Each bundle can only be bought once per account.

That's 225 5x XP missions for ~1000 SEK.

 

Since I don't play much and it only applies to victories after the first victory of the day. These will last a long time!

Let's say that I will play 12 battles every Saturday and Sunday and limit myself to playing three tanks because I want to focus on grinding those three. That's four battles per tank per day. If we estimate win rate at 50% then that's two victories per tank per day. Minus the first victory of the day that's 1 mission per tank per day, which is 3 missions per day. That's 6 missions per week. That's 37 weeks.

Of course, I expect to have weeks when I don't play at all and I will probably play a lot more during the Christmas event.

I haven't played in a while, but having these missions would motivate me to play more. So technically I'd pay to motivate myself to play and for such a long duration I think that it's definitely worth 1000 SEK.

 

I've decided that I will buy these. Thank you, Wargaming!

Others might complain, but for people like me who earn money but don't have much time to play, grinding XP is much more of a chore with such slow progress that it feels like we're not getting anywhere. This it just the right drug injection needed to start playing more again.

As others have said, if you could apply these then I would happily buy them again. The biggest regret for me has been reducing the amount of time I can play in my premiums as I don't want to "waste" the x5 on any other tank than the ones I've grinded.

This i shall agree with for sure, hinders playing in platoons as well unless you on same tier of which i myself like to focus grind tanks
