It's not worth much, but its neither wortheless. I've hired several new crew, and I can use this to train them.

No conversion rate discounts? If only this was xp-fever, those usually come with discounted conversion rates...

XP is always good, but without a decent conversion rate this event is useless.

It might be a good opportunity to collect some free xp and research tanks that are going to be affected by the 1.9 update changes.

I know it's not the same kind of conversion rate that we're talking about but there were different Xp and credits discounts running last weekend if I remember well!

You are telling it might be good opportunity to collect some free xp? In this event we can collect only tank based experience, I think I am right? Because we need to use gold (which is not really free) to convert tank based xp to free xp with a normal rate 1 gold = 25 xp

It have been really a while since we had good 1 gold = 40 xp rate.

 

Probably a lot of people need to research:

Churchill gc (6 tier) to shortcut to AT-7

Panther (7 tier) to shortcut to Tiger II

Hwk (8 tier) to shortcut to Leopard PTA

JPanther II (8 tier) to skip grinding (16800 + 63000 + 1750000) to Jagdtiger

T28 Prot. to shortcut T28

and others (like KV2 - S51, etc.)

 

I think a lot of people have a lot of gold after Loot boxes from Christmass even we had blackmarket....

It is good marketing from WG, they want people to use gold so they will not give good convert rate (1 = 40) so people will spend more gold for free exp.

But bad marketing for us (players). I wont use any gold for this original conversion rate. It is waste of gold.

 

In the end god bless you we will have x3 and 1 garage slot for 35000 xp....

 

BTW I am searching for remote job, I have information system software engineering master degree with 1 year of experience. Stuck in my country because of Corona...

Thank you for your time.

The last time we had a better free xp conversion was during the last XP fever 1 month ago.
The special with the discounts on purchasing tanks/crew training was awesome, you buy tanks that you plan to grind next and do crew management

Then you grind xp on premium tanks where you already have 6-7 skilled crew like the EBR 75 and prepare to change a lot during xp fever to be able to play your new toys after upgrading them with the best gun/turret/engine.

 

It would be nice if we get this scheduled recurring specials where you buy tanks one weekend, upgrade them one weekend, grind premium one weekend and so on.

Lame title and lame special. This "special" has always been about WG trying to milk players of gold but having no discount on free xp conversion is really unjustified. Is it just omitted by mistake on the website?

x3 for first win at least makes this bearable for people grinding through lines.

No, it's not. Free xp earnings are completely the same as normal, the only way to get extra free xp is by converting tank xp with gold. I checked the xp-fevers of the last year and found only 2 (this one not included) where we didn't get a discounted tank xp to free xp conversion rate (March 2019 wich had free xp to crew xp discounted for some reason and January 2020 wich had no discount at all). The only thing this special is good for is to get more gold off of players who desperately try to research a couple of tanks before 1.19 goes live. But I guess that's a typical WG move right there...
